The magic wand, originally invented by Hitachi to be used as a massaging tool, has been taken over by the Vibratex brand in 2013. Hitachi, wanted stop manufacturing the “massager” due to its infamous sex toy legacy, however Vibratex convinced them to keep manufacturing the device.
So what is the Magic Wand exactly?
The device was first listed for sale by Hitachi in 1968 and its use as a vibrator and masturbation device quickly became popular thanks to sex educator Betty Dodson during the sex-positive movement in the late 1960s. The Magic Wand was also featured in a 2002 episode of Sex and the City, after which it sold out. Due to its increasing popularity, various aftermarket attachments starting emerging on the market for use with the Magic Wand.
- Delivers 5,000 or 6,000 penetrating vibrations
- Operates sing a 110/120V electrical power cord
- UL listed
- Measures 12 inches long with a 2-1/4″ wide vibrating head
- Plugs directly into wall – does not come with a controller
On the outside
The 2018 Vibratex Magic Wand is mostly made out of white and blue plastic, except for a subtle silver highlight at the top of the device, and a switch in the middle of the device. Its color is mostly white. The Magic Wand feels very well built, with solid hard plastic throughout. This means that the magic wand should be able to last very long and prolonged use should not be an issue.
The top of the device has a nice texture, which feels satisfying when in contact with the skin. This part of the device also feels well built. In fact, we were impressed at how well put together the magic wand is. There was no flex whatsoever, neither from the top of the device, nor from the bottom.
The electrical cord, with which you connect the wand to the mains is thick enough to reduce the risk of potential tearing. The cord is connected to the centre bottom of the massager. There is a switch in the middle of the massager with which you can turn it on or off and adjust the speed. In fact, adjusting the speed of the device is just a matter of either selecting the I for 5000 vibrations per second, or the II for 6000 vibrations per second.
Washing and caring
Since the Magic Wand connects to the mains to operate, it is not advisable to use the device in areas such as the shower. It is also not advisable to submerse it in water. However, gently cleaning it with a wet cloth shouldn’t be a problem.
There isn’t any special care required for this device, due to its excellent build quality.
Vibrations and sound
The 2018 Vibratix Magic Wand can be described in just two words: VERY STRONG.
There are only two speed settings which we could select, 5000 vibrations per second, better known as 5000Hz, and 6000 vibrations per second, or 6000Hz. The vibrations in this thing are very solid, continuous and should satisfy most people. In fact, this is one of the fastest vibrating device we have ever tested.
Naturally, the excellent and strong vibrations come at a cost, and that is sound. This magic wand is LOUD, VERY LOUD. In fact, we don’t suggest you use it with the door open if there are people in the next room.
Since the Magic Wand requires a cord to connect to work, and the fact that the size of this thing is massive, we don’t consider this device as very portable. If you travel a lot, the Magic Wand might not be the ideal device for you. However, if you’re keen on travelling with the Magic Wand, we recommend placing it in your check in luggage rather than your hand luggage.
Price and final thoughts
At the time of this review, the Vibratix Magic Wand Massager was retailing on Amazon for a discounted price of $51.98. List price is around $71.36 depending from where you’re shopping. Although the list price is not cheap, this is a device that most likely will last for a very long time, and will satisfy your needs. Comparing it to other vibrators which cost upward of $100, the Vibratix Magic Wand Massager offers an excellent package of build quality and sexual gratification.
