Lo and behold I was given the Mercedes Benz of the sex toy world, winner of the 2016 Best New Female Product it is of course the Doxy Die Cast. I think other than my degree this is the best thing I have ever received in the mail, no joke. Some part of me feels I am not worthy to review the Queen of Orgasms, but if you bear with me, I shall humbly attempt to try.
Boring stuff first – here are the specifications:
The handle is made of a sexy aluminium/titanium alloy which gives the wand a heavy sturdy feel. The head is made of finest medical grade silicone. When I said this was the best sex toy, I was not joking. Taken from the Doxy Website: “The body is made from a polished aluminium/titanium alloy manufactured at our Cornwall foundry using a high pressure (550 tons) injection, cold chamber die casting machine.” Now I don’t know what 550 tons of pressure means in terms of casting aluminium but I do now that Doxy have not cut any corners – this is a premium, luxury sex toy. Which leads me nicely on to…
The Doxy arrived in a plain white cardboard box. Inside was a light grey hard rectangular case with a diamond pattern fabric. A large zip ran down the length of the case and I opened the case to reveal the Doxy nestled snug in foam. Removing the Doxy from the case felt like unsheathing a mythical sword, and I was eager to use it. The first thing I noticed was the weight. The rough weight of the Doxy Die Cast is 830 grams of which a large amount is the handle. From what I have read the head is the same size as other Doxy’s which allows for cross compatibility of attachments.
I asked my partner if she would be interested in reviewing the Doxy with me. She showed reasonable interest… by which I mean she nearly ripped my arm off when I opened the case. To start with, we lubed up the head of the Doxy with water based lubricant, plugged it in then turned it on. The Doxy has 3 buttons around halfway down the handle. They are relatively large and they light up when plugged in which makes it very easy to control.
There are 8 alternating speed settings ranging from “ooh, lovely” to “oh shit” and boy did we try them all. My partner preferred the lower settings in use as that’s just how she rolls as even the low settings with the doxy are still high compared to other toys.
The Doxy’s ergonomic handle was also very handy when using the Doxy during sex. I recommend doggy style as the position leaves the clit free to place the wand on. Fun fact: I was able to feel the vibrations whilst in my partner quite clearly and it was amazing. Oh and she loved it too.
We’ve had other wands before, Lovehoney’s wired wand did the job for a while but the head is quite a rigid material and the control can be knocked easily. I have also reviewed the Tantus Rumble which just didn’t have the power and the head was a little wide. So after trying both of those the Doxy just blew them out of the water. I honestly would not go back to another wand after using the Doxy.
My partner very much enjoyed the Doxy even as a masturbator, it allowed her to climax quickly on high settings or build up to a toe-curling, leg-shaking orgasm on lower settings. The bondage applications of the Doxy are great, particularly when my partner was tied and exposed, unable to move and I could play with the sensitivity. One easily forgotten but vital feature is the long-ass wire which is so long it negates the problem wired wands have, which is that they sometimes can’t reach certain zones of the bed, or must be angled a certain way to do so.
Okay before getting the Doxy I had been on the Doxy website and there was mention that the Doxy can be used as a massager. For me it has been a running joke since I watched Sex and the City that a neck massager never gets used on the neck but damned if I wasn’t going to try. I had pulled my back out at the gym and thought “why not” and let my partner massage my back with the Doxy. It’s great. The vibrations are firm and deep and I would definitely recommend the Doxy as a straight up non-erotic massager for after you’ve came like a hurricane with it. Try it on your aching thighs, shoulders, anywhere.
Cleaning is very easy with the Doxy. There isn’t many places for the lube to accrue so I simply wiped the head and handle down with an intimate wipe before and after use and I have had no problems. The aluminium/titanium alloy has not tarnished nor rusted nor do I expect to.
I think you know what I am going to say. The Doxy is fantastic. I love it. I really do. The Doxy rules its field and I would scoff at any challenger claiming to dethrone it. The price tag for the Die Cast is £159.68 which yes is a lot of money but you are paying for the best. If you could buy just one sex toy and you have £160 lying around then get the Doxy. You won’t regret it.
For future purchases you should know that the Doxy Diecast is getting a slight change of appearance, the handle will no longer be buffed to a shine, and will in fact have a matte finish, as seen in the picture below.
