New Review! We-Vibe 4 Couple’s Vibrator

Couple’s toys are a special breed of love-making utensils. The vast majority of sex toys primarily facilitate solo play or the stimulation of only one partner at a time, during sex. The extra considerations inherent to a toy designed to work for two partners simultaneously, especially when their “parts” are different (I’m talking hetero couples, here), are immense! For good, old-fashioned p-in-v intercourse, it’s hard to deny that the toy of choice is the We-Vibe 4. We-Vibe has worked hard to create an iteration of the hetero couple’s toy that addresses all of these special ‘considerations’. Lizzy and I have owned ours since Christmas 2013…and it has been an incredible addition to our toy chest! The toy is not without its quirks, but I don’t know of another toy that gets it right like this one for both of us at the same time, right now…

I’ll start from the beginning. I did a fair bit of review reading, myself, before pulling the trigger on this little, pink wonder. The Lelo Tiani or Ida, arguably the closest competition for the We-Vibe 4, and realistically the only other luxury options we would have considered, have a couple of faults right from the gates, in my opinion. One, Ida is more conspicuous; I don’t really want to be slamming into a big ‘rock’ while thrusting (look at a pic and you’ll see what I mean), and the We-Vibe 4 stays out of the way in that sense. Two, both Tiani and Ida have annoying remote interfaces/dependencies per reviews (toy store clerk confirmed this prior to purchase). With these things in mind, it was just a matter of knowing we wanted a couple’s vibrator of the highest quality and choosing a color: purple or pink.

Packaging for the We-Vibe 4 was nice, solid, and recyclable, but lacked a certain element of sophistication that other high-end brands have. Regardless, we popped the toy, case/charging stand, remote, and charging cable out of the package, and gave the simple, seven-page manual a read. After washing the vibrator off, as recommended, we dried it and plopped it into its charger overnight before its first use.

The next morning, Lizzy and I were more eager to bust this thing out than a couple of kids on Christmas waiting to see what Santa brought! I made sure to whet Lizzy’s appetite with some down-under action before we introduced the We-Vibe 4 into our routine. After helping her cum, I lubed the toy while receiving some oral attention of my own. Given the toy’s newness to us both, Lizzy handled nestling the vibrator into place inside her. With one of her hands on the ‘clit’ portion of the toy to hold it in place, I slowly joined the We-Vibe. Realizing we hadn’t fired up the vibrator, I pressed the remote. Nothing happened. Fortunately, as soon as the remote was line-of-sight with the vibe, it fired right up. We both enjoyed its quiet, but firm vibrations immediately! Lizzy came several more times in the ensuing minutes before I reached climax with her. Vibrations inside of the vagina are something I was not used to at all, in a really good way! The newness of the feeling was totally welcome. In fact, we were kind of obsessed with it for the first week or so. Not to worry, though, I still love sex without vibrations, and we still have it more often without than with the We-Vibe 4.

As I stated initially, I don’t think there is a superior couple’s vibrator on the market at this point, but there are a few things we would like to see improved with the We-Vibe 4 to make it closer to perfect. I think some of these things will come naturally as technology continues its trend of ‘fitting more into less’, but here they are nonetheless: the tip of the ‘vagina’ portion of the We-Vibe 4 was a bit pointy for Lizzy’s taste (a more rounded tip would make it a bit less ‘pokey’, she said), we like dark toys (navy or black would be appreciated for color choices), and if it didn’t weigh as much it would be easy to switch positions and not worry as much about it falling out (perhaps the same design, but thinner?).

That being said, we were able to use the toy in virtually any position we wanted. I had a blast using the toy inside of a Fleshlight on my own, and Lizzy enjoyed using dildos with it, too. Tons of applications, so fun in the shower, and it doesn’t need to be charged often. We have taken three trips with the We-Vibe 4 in its case, and TSA seems content leaving our bag alone after seeing the x-rays. Its compact size lends well to romantic getaways.

Pros: should fit most, body-safe silicone, waterproof, use w/ partner or alone, classy charger, water-resistant remote, six fun modes, amazing battery life…

Cons: wish for more colors, tip is a bit pointy (though not a deal breaker), could always be smaller/lighter

Here are some specifics on the We-Vibe 4 from their website

Advanced wireless remote
-Controls modes and intensity
New Echo vibe
Alternates between clitoral and
G-spot stimulation
Body-hugging form
Curved to fit her body — fits snugly in place
Silky-smooth silicone
Soft, 100% medical-grade silicone

The quick and dirty:

Our overall impression of this thing is great! It always coaxes me to orgasm and Lizzy has a great time sharing it with me, with tons of g-spot orgasms and about 30% of those including a clitoral orgasm also, when the outer vibrator hits her just right. At $160, this toy is a legitimate investment for some, but is well worth splurging for. I would not recommend, however, buying an older version to save some bucks. All of We-Vibe’s hard work in revising each version is for a reason. They fixed things people didn’t like with older ones…This version is a great couple’s toy. Although there is always room for improvement, we’re pretty darn happy with the We-Vibe 4. 🙂

Thanks for reading!

Stay classy, stay naked

Love,
M & L
