‘Touch’ is the upgraded version of the previous ‘Touch’ from We-Vibe. I didn’t have the previous touch, so this won’t be a comparison review it will however look at the pros and cons of this new addition to my toy box.
The packaging and what’s in the box:
The packaging for this vibe is very similar to the We-Vibe Tango which I reviewed not too long ago.
It comes in a cardboard box which looks very nice; it has a picture of the item on the front of the box and a brief description of the item. Upon opening the box you’re greeted with a plain white foam inlay to protect your newly purchased silicone vibe and a cardboard cover with the name ‘Touch’ displayed on it.
Underneath this inlay you have your USB charging cable, a white protective bag and your We-Vibe instruction manual.
The previous We-Vibe items came with a wall socket charger; the charger on the newer one is a USB charging cable. I prefer the USB charging cable; but I know many much prefer to charge by the wall charger. A lot of vibes now come with both the USB charger and the wall charger; however this is tragically not the case with the We-Vibe Touch. If you do wish to charge your vibrator with one you will have to use a USB to Wall plug converter; you can usually pick these up for a couple of pounds.
If you’ve read my Tango review you’ll see that I loved the upgraded charging facility, unfortunately this wasn’t the case with the Touch. The item kept disconnecting itself from the charger and I had to keep fiddling with it to get it to continue charging. Personally I think this is due to the weight of the Touch and how strong the magnets are to keep them connected.
Whilst your Touch is on charge a light will appear on the charger, the light will stay lit until it has stopped charging. Due to the temperamental charging facility I’d recommend that once the light has gone out you reconnect it; this will ensure that it’s fully charged and didn’t just disconnect itself.
Again much like the Tango the Touch has a ‘Charge me’ light that will flash when it needs to be charged. Unlike a lot of rechargeable toys that will only flash red when it needs charging whilst in use; the Touch will flash a yellow blinking light until you put it on charge. If you leave it on your night stand it will flash constantly until you get up and charge it.
I both love and hate this feature, I love it because I always forget to charge my toys, so whilst I’m in the middle of using something it will just die on me; which means I’d either have to put it on charge and wait, find something else OR do a DIY job which well is a lot more effort than I’d originally planned – I have never forgotten to put my Touch on charge with this feature. I hate it because it is flipping well annoying, it will annoy the crap out of you until you jump up and charge it – I feel like it’s threatening me to charge it.
Initially you will need to charge this for around 90minutes before you can use it. This 90minutes seemed to take forever! For two reasons, the first being because I had to keep checking to make sure it was still charging and the second reason because it feels so silky smooth that I was dying to try it out.
How it looks
Well firstly, it feels amazing; seriously amazing. It is made from silicone which has a somewhat silky matte finish; it doesn’t seem to drag across your skin and just sends shivers down my spine before I’ve even turned on the vibrations.
Secondly the shape, I love the shape and the size of the Touch it is perfect to hold in the palm of your hand. It has a length of 4.3 Inches, a width of 2 inches at its widest point and a circumference of 4.2 inches. Just under the tip of the Touch is an oval shaped indent, which is the perfect size to cover my clitoris; the length of the indent is 1.2 inches with a width of 0.8 inches.
Turning it on
Using the Touch couldn’t be simpler; you press the button at the bottom (Where your magnetic charger goes) you simply press the button in and then let go. It has 8 different settings the first four being continuous vibe getting stronger in vibrations as you go through then 5 through 8 are different pattern vibrations. You just keep pressing the button to scroll through the different modes and to turn it off you simply hold the button in for two seconds.
The eight modes are
• Ultra High (My favourite setting!)
• Tease and
Care and Maintenance:
The Touch is made from a silicone which has a lovely silky finish; as such I would recommend that you use a good quality water-based lubricant, as a Silicone lubricant may damage the finish. Using lubricant with this toy does make it feel so much better!
It is fully submersible in water making it not only usable in the bath or shower but also so easy to clean. You can either clean it in warm soapy water and give it a rinse off, or just spray with a sex toy cleaner and rinse off. Once dry pop it in the included storage bag.
I do really like the Touch; I love the silky smooth way it feels gliding across my skin and the shape is great. It has an oval shaped indent just below the tip which feels fantastic when placed over your clitoris, giving you more surface area vibrations, and the tip itself provides direct stimulation for those that want it.
The shape makes it perfect to hold, it isn’t uncomfortable in any way, it’s also perfect for massages; everything about this just feels so luxurious.
If you don’t like strong vibrations, then this isn’t the toy for you; even on its lowest vibration setting it still is quite strong. But for those of us who are power whores when it comes to vibrations then it is a perfect addition to our toy boxes.
In the Touch Vs Tango debate that does seem to happen, I have to say I do much prefer my Tango as the vibrations are more pin point which work better for me!
