Updated We-Vibe Touch, now USB rechargeable with a silky finishHere’s a sentence only a sex toy freak would ever write: I’ve been waiting a long time for a company to make a rechargeable clit toy with a pointy tip. One of my first favorite clit vibes was a bullet with a pointy tip, but I abandoned it long ago in favor of deeper stimulation and rechargeability. I’ve grown accustomed to other shapes, but my clit still loves pinpoint stimulation.

The We-Vibe Touch doesn’t photograph well at all. It looks like a damn potato. It always appears wider, with no emphasis on its pointy tip. I almost overlooked it — especially since the We-Vibe II is questionable — but I’m really glad I didn’t. The Touch is not perfect, but it is my new favorite rechargeable clit toy.

The Touch comes in a small, squarish box with a proud but not ostentatious image of the toy on the front. Sadly, all this class is obliterated by the white satin storage bag, which feels cheap as fuck. It makes a crinkling sound, as though it’s lined with paper.

This is a pretty small toy: 4″ in length and 1.66″ in width at its fattest. It’s not trying to be the tiniest toy on the market, but it fits in the hand and won’t slither away. The silicone is hella glossy, has a somewhat sticky feeling, and attracts lint like crazy. The silicone is a much more appealing silky matte now. You will want to rub it on your face.

At the risk of sounding melodramatic, using the We-Vibe Touch is like coming home. That pointed shape is totally my thang. The scoop on the underside is awesome too, and I imagine people who like pressure on their clits would really love it. Mostly, though, it’s the Touch’s type of vibration that hooked me. These are not faraway vibrations that feel buried in the toy. These are surface level, and they are rumbly and strong.

I approve of this. A lot. And the We-Vibe Tango has the same rumbly goodness, just in a tiny tiny package. Color me surprised, We-Vibe! I did not expect this from you.

One button is all you get for controlling this puppy. The button is easy to press and makes a satisfying clicking sound. But dude, seriously, ONE BUTTON? The Touch has eight settings: four levels of steady vibration followed by four patterns. I tend to forget which level of steady vibration I’m on, then accidentally switch into the first pattern, exclaim, “motherfuck!” and cycle back through everything in distress.

The USB charging system is alright. It can be finicky, like all toys that charge magnetically. The golden charging light is kind of small, and the connection sort of fickle. The silver contacts on the toy are more pronounced now, which helps it connect more easily, but you still don’t want to let cats roam wherever you’re charging this.

My biggest problem with the Touch is its paltry battery life: it only lasts about 70 minutes on a charge. I prefer my Monas 2.5 hours, but I’m spoiled. At least the new version of the Touch has a low battery warning — the base will blink like a lighthouse beacon as early as 20 minutes before death.

The Touch also can’t be locked for travel, which sucks because this is exactly the kind of toy I would want to take on trips.

Even with its issues, though, the Touch has unseated the LELO Siri as my favorite rechargeable clit toy. Yes, the Siri’s battery life and multiple-button controls are far superior, but the Touch just feels better.

Obviously, if you want vibrations that knock your teeth out, you’ll want to grab the Mystic WandWahl, or Hitachi — but for a small rechargeable vibe, the Touch is more powerful and satisfying than everything else I’ve tried. This includes the MiMi, Form 4, Siri, Mia, Matryoshka, Alia, Spring, and your mom.

And hey, the Touch is $100 — not insanely overpriced like some brands.

Now I gotta go mourn the fact that it only comes in icky purple.

    Wow. I love my Siri…but, boy, this does sound awesome. I kind of overlooked the Touch, Tango, and Salsa because the photos were so blah. I may end up adding this to my wishlist.

  • GeekyNymph

    “It looks like a damn potato.” I snorted. :)

    Thanks for the review.

  • Tasha

    The your mum comment made me snort my tea XD

  • Kara_Sutra

    I was actually waiting to see what you thought of this one! Glad to see the SplitDildo wasn’t the only thing we agreed on, ha! As for the vibrations of the other two, Salsa is very similar… but Tango, my lordy! On the highest speed it’s hand numbingly powerful.

  • Navigator

    …damn. I have to check this out, now; that shape looks fantastic.

  • adriana

    I much preferred the Tango for pressure but it shares the same yummy vibes.

    I love the sentence “It looks like a damn potato.” Never ceases to amuse me.

    Thanks :)

  • GeekyNymph

    See? I commented twice! Thrice! :)

  • Narcissistic Lust

    Well, your excellent review certainly persuaded me. I finally went out to buy the product I’ve been lusting after and I must say I’m NOT disappointed. You run an awesome blog Epiphora.

    Well if the comments here are any indication, it looks like She@ and I are two years late to the We-Vibe Touch Party. Trying to make us feel better the vibrator made lame excuses like “your invitation got lost in the mail” and “I really didn’t think that you would come even if I did invite you”. After we saw how much fun Epiphora said the party was we decided to crash it and are we ever glad we did. The Touch is a wonderful solo toy (as evidenced by it’s nearly permanent position on She@’s night stand), but it is just as great as a couple’s toy. She@ uses it in some secret shaman-like way when giving me a blow job and it is, trust me on this, a superb enhancement. I use it in combination with my fingers when playing with her. We use it during intercourse (the size and shape make it a near perfect fit in between our bodies) and for us it works better than it’s cousin; the We-Vibe II. Just this week we discovered another killer way to use it: in conjunction with an Njoy Pure Wand. She@ is just figuring out how to connect her G-spot to her orgasms. We discovered this weekend that if I use the Touch to stimulate her clitoris while she uses the Pure Wand for her G-spot all sorts of fireworks are created. While it is, as Epiphora observes, shaped like the most colorful russet you ever saw: it is one incredibly effective and useful little potato.

    Would you say the vibrations of the We-Vibe Touch are the same or stronger than Mona 2? My husband was planning on getting me another vibrator for my upcoming birthday, and I’m trying to look into ones that are easier to use during sex (Mona 2 is great, but we’ve got to be at the right angle or I have to be on top in order to use it comfortably). The Touch looks like it might fit the bill, and He@’s comment drives that point further. But if you have any other suggestions, I’d love to hear them.

    I lurked on your site for probably a year and finally acquired my first vibrator, this one. I knew clitoral stimulation was my main thing, so I looked through your reviews for a long time and finally decided on this one and my s/o got it for me as a christmas gift (the teal one is 50$ on amazon now, by the way!). Loving it, aside from the one button that makes it not so easy to change speeds. Have to fumble with it a little. But definitely worth it and your review was so true to the product. Thanks, Epiphora! :)

  • Epiphora

    The Touch is slightly stronger and rumblier at its highest setting, but not as adjustable. For me, that makes a huge difference during sex… I like to be able to slowly turn up the vibrations with the Mona 2. I really haven’t found a small rechargeable vibe that I love as much as I love my Mona.

  • Susi El

    Is the second generation stronger than the first one?

  • Fee

    Any feedback as to whether they solved them randomly dying? I went through 2 and eventually just got a Mia instead, but it’s not the same :(

  • Epiphora

    It’s impossible to know right now. We just have to wait until more people get new ones, I guess.

    Did you ever try the Leaf Fresh? I own the Leaf Life, (Leaf) Touch and the Fresh and even though the Leaf Touch sucks (it’s super buzzy!!), the Fresh beats the Life, because it can be placed perfectly between the labia and on the pubic bone. It’s not giving as pinpoint stimulation as the Life, that sucks during intercourse because you slip off easily, but it’s not as wide as the We Vibe Touch. Besides it starts on a much lower setting but can get almost as strong as the We Vibe Touch.

  • mollifer

    the charger on my touch (yes, the new one) is such a pain in the ass. sometimes the light turns off, which i know is supposed to happen when it’s fully charged, but then when i adjust it a little in turns back on again. and this after being plugged in for a while! wtf is going on?

  • Epiphora

    That’s normal. Mine does that too. I don’t know that the light is “aware” if the toy is actually fully charged.
