So here’s the thing, the we vibe 4 and I have this odd love/hate relationship going on. I mean, I want to love, I really really want to love it. I really want to hate it for multiple reasons, but I just can’t. I had never used a wevibe previous generation, thinking it was too bulky, not liking the material and have never really paid much mind to ‘couples vibrators’. Once the wevibe 4(+) came out, however, I jumped on board hoping most of my suspicions had been cured by a major overhaul in design, and it kind of did but kind of it didn’t.
First off, let’s talk about the vibe itself. The wevibe 4 has two motors and 6 settings, including low, medium, high constant vibration, as well as a pulse, wave and very interesting echo. The echo cycles back and forth in pulses alternating from the g-spot stimulator pad to the clitoral stimulator. It’s a very nice soft silicone that can easily washed with warm water and antibacterial soap. With an almost v-shaped g-spot pad, and the new redesign is not only less bulky, it does well to keep the product from constantly falling out. The neck the bends around in a C shape to tightly hug your pelvic bone ending in a clitoral stimulator on top. There’s a button on the top to turn the motors on, cycle through settings, and turn it off. It also comes with a remote that can be used to change modes and intensities. No battieries are required, as it is rechargeable through a docking station. Battery life is just about and hour, dependant on how hard you push the intensity.
For solo play, I found the wevibe 4 pretty good. I really enjoyed the echo setting, and it had a just okay amount of rumble. I kept finding myself pushing it down into my clit for that added boost of intensity that it just wasn’t giving me. Having to hold it down to my clit was a two fold problem, not only did I do it for more intensity, but also because for the life of me I could NOT keep this thing on my clit. I’m guessing it has less to do with design and more to do with my body shape, but it really did ruin the ‘hands free experience’ for me. So basically once I got it in place, and pushed it in my clit like my life depended on it, I started to get why people were raving about it. It’s fun, and it works, I just don’t think my vagina and this product were ever destined to be soul mates.
As for couples play, that was a whole other set of follies. Want a tip? USE LUBE, and lots of it. Even with a good water based lube, my husband struggled to share space with this toy. Once again, it may be a body type problem, but we were so glad we never bought the bigger previous models. Although, with a little bit of perseverance and a boatload of laughter, he was able to ‘mostly’ squeeze inside me. He noted quite a bit of drag and discomfort though. From that moment on, it was very gentle movements or him just parking inside me, which helped keep it on my clit…. Making my first true hands free experience with this toy. If you like slow to no movement at all, here’s the toy for you! That’s not the case for us though, usually opting for a bit more of a wild ride. It actually got to the point we had to abandon it and go on sans wevibe 4. (Note: this was the first of 3 times we did this, with no positive results).
I’d like to say, this is a product that needs to be charging when not in use! Like I said earlier, you got about one hour, and we had it die leaving it off the charger overnight after only 30 mins of use. I’d also like to point out that even though we bought the wevibe 4+ model, we did not try out the phone app. I do think it’s an awesome idea for couples play when you can’t be together, though. I just had no idea why they would go through such lengths to have someone control your vibe from across the world when they can’t even perfect a remote that works from across the bed. That’s right, the remote is crap, too. Well let’s just say you have to make sure your pointing it at the vibrator, pressing the remote up against it, in order for it to work. Ok ok, that’s an exaggeration, but we couldn’t get it to work reliably if it was more than two feet away.
It’s not all bad, though. Hold the hate mail until I’m done. I loved the material, it’s nice and soft (not the greatest to rub you penis up against), and feels comfortable inside you and against you clit. The docking station is awesome, and I think the infused battery idea is stellar. I hate having to line up nodes to charge anything rechargeable, set it and forget it here. I also loved the different modes, can’t rave enough about echo mode! We got ours in purple, with an alternate colour choice of pink, which suits me just fine. Lastly, it’s fun, it’s different, and we had a good laugh messing around with it. The idea of it is solid, It’s just not quite there for me, yet. (Maybe the wevibe 7 or 8). All in all, I’m torn between how much I like it, how much I wanna like it, and how much I want to burn the little fucker.
So, as always, wevibe 4…. How did you do? I’d give you a 4/5 for innovation, a 3/5 for solo play, a 1/5 for couples play, a 2/5 for battery life and remote viability, a 5/5 for cuteness and a 1/5 for compatibility with me. Honestly, it’s not for us, results may very and I can see how why so many people would love it. Hell. I love it, and hate it, but I love it. I personally wouldn’t buy this model again, maybe in the future we will see what changes have been made. That’s not saying I won’t get curious and try it again, cause I never learn. Just want to say this is MY opinion and MY experience, you results may vary. We all have what works for us, this just wasn’t a good match for us, which is a shame, as we love the companies other products.
We paid for the WeVibe 4 out of pocket, and in no way have we been compensated for it. Even if we had, it would not alter our ability to write an HONEST review. To see more reviews or to get ahold of us, you can always find us on Twitter @TeaseForTwo
