Lovehoney Classic Mains Powered Wand Review
By Pleasure Panel reviewer sarawara123
The Lovehoney Classic Mains Powered Wand (from Lovehoney UK or Lovehoney USA) has become a favourite of mine. The toy itself has a large round head which is smooth at the top with ridges around the circumference, supported by a sightly bendy purple neck. It is intended for external use only.
The head of the toy is large and white with the red Lovehoney heart logo above the scroll wheel, which controls the vibrations. The toy is mains powered, has voltage of 250V with a very generous 1.8m power lead attached to a UK plug [the UK version is being reviewed here].
The fact that the magic wand is mains powered means you don’t ever have to worry about recharging the toy or replacing batteries, but this also makes it difficult to use when travelling or even during a power cut, which personally I think is the best time to get busy with some self love!
It is quite long at 13 inches and the handle/body has a diameter of 2.5inches which makes it quite easy to grip, which would make it a good choice for those who have any issues with their hands. The toy can be quite loud, especially when used in a quiet room, despite being advertised as quiet.
The Lovehoney Classic Mains Powered Wand can be cleaned with sex toy cleaner but it is not waterproof so care needs to be taken not to get the body wet. Cleaning the toy proved not as easy as I expected as lubricant and other residue get stuck within the ridges around the circumstance of the head. I found that by putting a condom over the head before play helps prevent this from happening.
Although the toy isn’t insertable, applying water-based lube to the toy or your intimate areas reduces friction and helps the toy glide over your intimate areas with tantalising effect. When focusing attention on clitoral stimulation start off with the power low then slowly crank the wheel to increase the speed.
I found that this wand will take you to a place where you feel like you can’t take it anymore, my legs start twitching and my toes curling but you must keep going because eventually the orgasms created by this beauty are explosive! Also, I found that if I turn the power down immediately following orgasm then gradually turn it up once I can cope with it again, I am able to give myself multiple orgasms.
Plus, due to the fact it is mains powered you don’t have to worry about it running out of juice half way to orgasm. I did find it uncomfortable when placed right on my bony area as I felt the rumbles through my bones and because it’s so powerful, it can be uncomfortable!
This Lovehoney Classic Mains Powered Wand is excellent for couple play, although I’ve only ever used it with a male partner I feel that it would benefit any couple, regardless of genders. However, another downside to the fact that it is mains operated is the power cable can sometimes get in the way of when playing with another person. In addition, it is quite large so depending on the sexual position it can get in the way if you are trying to use it between two people.
There are also some great attachments (available to purchase separately) to use if you have a penis, such as the love honey hummer attachment. This fits over the head of the wand and enables you to insert your penis into it and can be moved back and forth or held still. We have used this attachment together as a couple but my partner tends to use it whilst alone. According to the box, when used with low vibrations, the hummer and magic wand can be used for stamina training.
I found after around 6 months of use around three times a week, the toy gradually lost some of its power at the higher speeds. Thanks to Lovehoney’s happiness guarantee, as it broke within the first year, they quickly replaced the item free of charge. Plus, I didn’t even have to return the old item, they just asked me to dispose of it through household waste, which I was grateful for as I didn’t really fancy dropping off a box with my broken, used sex toy in at the post office!
After using it for around 30 minutes I find the body sometimes gets quite warm. I am concerned that my replacement will lose some of its power soon, and I feel that when it does, it will be time to move on and try a different brand of magic wand.
All in all, I have enjoyed this product so much I have recommended it to many people as a staple to have in their sex toy collection and even bought one for my mum who wanted some guidance on the best product to buy.
