How many years have we had the vibrator? Forty? Well, ok if you want to get picky probably about 100 years since they were invented to prevent “hysteria”. So it’s about time us ladies had something other than a vibrator that can make our clitoris go a bit numb if we don’t get our orgasm within a reasonable amount of time (is thirty minutes too long to still keep trying?)…
Being an owner of a sex shop, I had read all of these reviews of the Womanizer by bloggers about how fantastic this product was. Let me tell you, this is usually unheard of because sex toy bloggers are a picky bunch. You’ll have a hard time finding one who doesn’t rate the Hitachi Magic Wand or Doxy Wand as their favourite toy and that’s saying something. It’s saying they like power, and a lovely massage after…OK, not so much the massage, but a mains powered vibrator means more ooomph which is generally what most sex toy bloggers love.
But here they were (and still are) saying easy orgasm with, and when Emmeline Peaches said
“Because the Womanizer does things to me that no other toy can do.”
I thought I had to try it. So we finally got a hold of the W100, original Womanizers and I got one to test drive.
Now I can’t go any further without addressing the name. It’s cheesy as hell. In fact it may be cheesier than hell. Those German’s have certainly lost something in translation. I’m guessing they never consulted anyone whose first language was English. Maybe in Germany when you say “womanizer” it means “rocks off”, like in America they say “rooting” and us Australian’s just giggle thinking they are about to fuck an entire football team. Well maybe they are, who am I to judge?
Anyway, so now we’re clear on the name, we should not ignore the design. After all, Mimi De Luxe is all about the aesthetics. The Womanizer W100 doesn’t really cut the mustard. It might beat the Medisil Magic Wand, but that’s about all it’s going to beat. God, it really sounds like I don’t like this product, but bare with me. It’s just like my dad designed it thinking “all women love red roses, and leopard print, and oooh let’s not forget a giant gemstone”. I’m not the first to point out the design is sad, and the people at Womanizer have certainly heard the internet groaning and made the W500 a little less like a thermometer, with a smaller gemstone and some much better designs.
Rant over, are you ready to find out what it actually does? OK, this is the tricky bit. It’s very hard to describe. We say it’s like a sucking but it’s not like someone is going down on you. The science of it is that is gradually draws blood to your clitoris which increases sensitivity and arousal. The first time I tried I thought this isn’t working, I couldn’t actually feel it doing anything. And then bamb, after about a minute I orgasmed. It felt like it kind of came from nowhere.
Since that day, I’ve experimented a lot. It’s certainly not a toy that I would use with my husband. Sometimes I use it as a pre-sex toy as it means we don’t have to spend ages in foreplay (warming me up), but mostly I use it on my own, as a quick mood changer or pick me up. Yes, it’s no longer champagne or wine, it’s an orgasm for my evening pick me up. Oh how sophisticated I’ve become…
Anyway, you want to know more about the toy? Well, it has five speeds, but I only make it past the first on a few occasions, usually when I should be doing other things and my mind is thinking about doing the washing or working on my forecasts. Pushing it up to the second or third speed demands my attention and makes it easier to switch off and focus on my body. I don’t think I’ve ever been past third, it is just too intense.
In conclusion, I think the Womanizer is a great sex toy for private pleasure. If you have trouble reaching orgasm or are very time poor, this is the toy for you. Or if you love clitoral orgasms (like 95% of most women), then this is also for you! I’d be really surprised if the Womanizer didn’t make you climax.
Or the more affordable Satisfyer which is prettier, cheaper and waterproof!
