Even though I have a Doxy, I was still quite shocked when the O-Wand arrived, the shipping box was quite heavy and a lot bigger than I initially expected. One of the pros of the O-Wand is that it’s rechargeable, most of the rechargeable wands that I own just aren’t as big, bulky or even nearly as heavy as the O-Wand is. Weighing in at 694g it is a bit of a beast. So much so that when I pulled it out during a session with my OH he questioned if we were about to bludgeon someone to death.
*Pulls out wand*
OH “Holy shit. Who makes that?”
Me “It’s the O-Wand”
OH “Are we killing someone with it? It weighs a ton” 😂

I’ve mentioned that the O-Wand is rechargeable, and one of the things I like about it is that it comes with a range of plugs that can be easily changed out. I love it when companies do this, it makes travel easy and not only that it’s great for international buyers. It’s incredibly frustrating when you order a vibrator and it comes with a plug that you’re unable to use- this eliminates that problem. It takes approximately 1.5hours to charge which gives up to 3 hours of play time. One of the things that annoys me about the O-Wand is that it doesn’t show me it’s charging, which is a massive pain in the arse. And, unlike the Lelo Smart Wand you can’t play with it while it’s on charge. So, it’s a case of crossing my fingers and hoping that it’s actually charging and guessing when it’s done. Since the buttons do have lights on them, it makes no sense to me that they don’t flash at least a little while charging.
The O-Wand is made from velvet smooth silicone in its entirety, the only part not silicone is the inner handle, this is made from gold shiny ABS plastic. While to some degree, I do love the way the O-Wand looks, I also hate it. I hate that the body is made from silicone, I find that no matter what it just looks dusty if left out of the box for a longer period of time. Silicone attracts all the dust, and this is no exception. I also hate the shiny ABS plastic, I have no idea why companies keep making handles with shiny plastic, because eventually that gold coating will come off (as of yet, it hasn’t), also it gets covered in lube while using and well, just doesn’t appeal to me. This is where I much prefer the body of the Doxy, both the plastic and aluminium handles are preferable to me than the silicone/shiny ABS mashup that Lelo and O-Wand have adopted.
On the handle there are three buttons, while in use the buttons will light up in a red colour. There’s an arrow that controls the speed, another which will change the vibrations from constant to patterned and then one to turn it off and on. While the wand is easy to use, I won’t deny that it’s bloody annoying. If you go past the setting you want then you will either have to switch the wand off and on and start again, or go through all of the settings for them to cycle back to the one you wanted.
While the claims are true, yes, the O-Wand is powerful. Sadly, it just left me wanting. I found that on the lower settings the wand did have those rumbling vibrations that I desire, but on the higher settings they just become buzzy and as such it was a pretty MEH experience.
One of the things I do really like about the O-Wand is the multiple attachments that are available.
The O-Burst attachment comes with the wand, and is neatly nestled next to it in the lovely boxed packaging. Now, I do actually like this attachment, but not for masturbation. I actually loved this attachment for body massage – it felt great when used to alleviate the stresses of daily life. But, sadly when used alongside the wand it didn’t really do much for me. The problem for me was again the buzzy vibrations, they weren’t able to travel through the silicone well enough for me to enjoy this attachment when used with the O-Wand.
As mentioned earlier the O-Wand does have some other attachments available, there are currently three separate attachments that can be purchased at a price of £20 each. All of these are made entirely from velvet smooth silicone.
The three attachments that are currently available are:
The O-Spot is designed for G-Spot/P-Spot stimulation. Well, it’s essentially designed for G-Spot, but there is absolutely no reason why it can’t be used for P-Spot stimulation either. Wand vibrators aren’t just for women! – What I like about this attachment is the small bumps above the insertable ‘shaft’ which can provide clitoral stimulation – not a huge amount, but enough to be pleasurable.
Again, the problem that I have with the O-Spot is that the vibrations just don’t travel well. I found the attachment works a lot better with a wand that has more powerful rumbling vibrations.
I said above that wands aren’t just for women, and I whole heartily stand by that, and this is an attachment is designed with males in mind, the attachment is for use with the penis as a male masturbator. Sadly, this attachment didn’t arrive while my partner was still in the country, so we’ll have to save it to use for later this year. The joys of Long Distance Relationships.
So, as of yet. I’m unable to provide opinions on the O-Gasm. Once I am able to I will come back and update the review.
And last, but most certainly not least is my favourite of the attachments the O-La-La. This is that attachment that seems to have a bit of everything, the ridges at the top, the bumps at the back and then the best part, the seemingly clitoral cave. The outer layer of this encases my clitoris while the inner bump provides me with that direct clitoral stimulation which is just perfect. Even though the higher vibrations are buzzy and they don’t travel well through the silicone, this is still one of my favourite want attachments, ever. It’s just perfect. I don’t need the wand to be on high, because of the direct clitoral stimulation it’s perfect on the lower settings and does exactly what it is meant to do.
I’m so conflicted when it comes to the O-Wand, that’s because overall I want to like it. It’s well made, and made from body safe material. The silicone just feels divine. The packaging is amazing and I love the attachments. However, it just doesn’t do for me what it claims, to me there are far more powerful wands out there, it’s rechargeable and is meant for portability, however the weight of it just doesn’t make it overly portable. The handle helps to counter the weight, but – it’s still uncomfortable to hold for longer periods of time.
While the vibrator is indeed powerful, it saddens me that the vibrations lean more towards the buzzy side the higher you get up. Meaning that alone the wand does nothing for me. When using the attachments, aside from the Oh-La-La the vibrations just don’t travel well enough – though I am so pleased that the attachments do fit other wands and can be purchased separately.
As I said, I want to like the wand. IT IS really well made, but personally I don’t feel that it justifies a price tag of £199.99. At a price of almost £200, for me to recommend it, the wand has to be perfect, and it’s just not, in my opinion there are far better wands out there with a lower price tag.
