Here’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 an adorable, trapezoid-shaped box with embossed silver touches and an image of the toy. 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 crazy1. The toy’s pretty rigid, but the silicone has a very slight give in some spots.
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.
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 charging system is alright. It can be finicky, like all toys that charge magnetically. Oddly, the golden charging light is really, really tiny. Discreet, I guess? But then I don’t even notice when the light goes off.
My biggest problem with the Touch is its paltry battery life. It only lasts about an hour on a charge. The worst part is that when the Touch is dying, it will pretend like it is fine when I first turn it on and start using it, but the moment I turn it off, it won’t turn back on again. I thought it was malfunctioning because this happened to me like three times in a row, but I came to realize it was just losing its battery life in the most obnoxious way possible.
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 Wand, Wahl, 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.
Now I gotta go mourn the fact that I own the icky magenta one and not the teal one.
