Review of the G-Wand G-Spot vibrator from California Exotics

I was sent the Platinum Edition G-Wand vibrator for review by California Exotics, the vibrator came packaged in a cardboard box with nice clear pictures of the vibrator on and some details about what it does. Inside the box the vibrator is wrapped in a plastic hygiene wrap to prevent it from picking up any dirt in transit. I would still advise that you wash this toy before its first use, its made from a slightly sticky jelly type of material that picks up every little piece of dust and fluff that it might have been near, so just to be safe a quick rinse under the hot tap is a good idea.

 

I generally don’t use jelly type sex toys, partly due to the fact that they pick up ever piece of fluff going, partly because they are so difficult to get really clean due to their slightly pourous nature and also because they tend to have a smell about them that I don’t like, this does have the sticky feel but it doesn’t have the smell that jelly toys sometimes have. The packaging does say that these are free of any phthalates which is always a positive, phthalates are the nasties that have been taken out of things such as babies bottles and teats due to the fact that they could cause some cancers amongst other things, so not having them in your sex toys can only possibly be a positive, I could sit and go on about phthalates all day but you have a google and if you are really interested you could use it.

 

The G-Wand takes 2AA type batteries which slot into the base of the vibrator, they fit pretty snugly and don’t rattle when it is turned on. The vibrator has a 2 button operation one for the power on/off and one to flick through the various vibration settings.

Having spent time with this g-spot vibe I found it strange that it didn’t have a constant vibration pattern, I have flicked through the settings over and over again and as far as I can work out it only has patterned vibrations of pulsation and escalation, this is either a plus or a negative dependent on your own preference, personally I really missed having the constant vibrations, but my partner really enjoyed teasing me with the pulsations and keeping me on the edge for what felt like an absolute age. Unlike the majority or vibrators that I have tried over the years this does remember the last setting that it was on when you turn it off and back on again, personally I like this as it does frustrate me when you I have found a setting that you love but the next time you turn it on you can’t find it again.

The vibrations on the G-wand are of moderate strength, not the strongest that I have experienced but far from the weakest, it is also in the middle when it comes to noise levels, as with a lot of vibrators out there now the battery rattle issue has been resolved but the sound of vibrations do travel quite far so although this is far from a loud toy I personally wouldn’t want to use it with people in the next room. When been used internally your body will muffle some of the noise as will using it under the covers. I found that the vibrations are concentrated in the tip of the g-wand which is just what you would expect with any good g-spot vibrator, and with them been of a reasonable strength pressing it against the clit is quite effective as well as using is against the g-spot.

That been said the g-wand is shaped perfectly to be used against the g-spot and as a g-spot vibrator it works really well, the jelly type material is soft enough to allow a good amount of pressure to be given without it getting uncomfortable and as we all know the pressure combined with the vibrations is what makes it feel so amazing, so even though I don’t really like jelly as a material in the case of this toy the added softness from the jelly is actually a good thing. The solid hand is large enough to allow you to be able to keep a really good grip on it when you need to, and the buttons are placed in a way that makes it easy to change the functions when it is in use without much fiddling.

The Calexotics Platinum G-Wand is waterproof and can be submerged in water either for use in the bath or the shower or for cleaning, that is provided you make sure that the battery compartment is fastened securely to prevent any leaks. As always even though this is a waterproof vibrator I would still use a good quality anti-bacterial sex toy cleaner after cleaning to ensure that it is really clean, this is especially important as this is a jelly vibrator which will be slightly pourous, and if you wish to share this toy then I would ensure that you use a condom to prevent the chance of any bacteria been shared.

Overall I would say that the G-Wand has its positives and its negatives, on the plus side it is waterproof and easy to clean, the strength of the vibrations is good, it takes batteries that are easy to get hold of and they don’t rattle, and the softness of the jelly means you can put pressure on it without causing discomfort, the material also means that you can use it with any lube without the worry of it damaging it on the minus side its jelly and even though the softness is good I still don’t really like it and its stickyness, it is more noisy than I would like and it doesn’t have a constant vibration setting.
