When it comes to magic wands there are two main types. I think of the ones you plug in at a wall socket as the equivalent of the hefty, steam-powered vibrators of old: efficient, brute-force machines designed to excel at one very specific job. Battery-powered magic wands are their weedier cousins – smart rather than strong, and flexible enough to be used in a variety of interesting ways.
The Wand Massage from Otouch falls into the second category. It’s an attractive number made of body-safe plastic and silicone. Unlike some wands, it doesn’t even pretend to be a shoulder massager but instead commits to a more svelte, all-black sex toy aesthetic. Size-wise it clocks in at about the length of a forearm. It’s comfortable to hold, easy to clean, and pretty simple to use.
And, even better, it works really well. The toy offers moderate power but combines this with the variable patterns of a smaller, smarter vibe. You can pick seven different power levels. The vibration patterns are smoother than your average wand, making for sensations that are sensuous rather than just intense.
The toy charges via USB, which plugs into a tiny, hidden socket at the far end from the head. It is waterproof and easy to clean. It even comes with a storage bag to keep it separate from your other toys.
If you’re looking for a magic wand vibe that – rather than just being powerful – offers you a high degree of control, works well, and is safe and easy to use, this mushroom is your best choice. And, although nobody would ever mistake it for a shoulder massager, it also works extremely well for that purpose too.
