My new Doxy box of delight
Since owning my Lovehoney Plug-in wand and hearing about other people’s experience with the Doxy Plug-in vibrating wand massager, I’ve lusted after the UK-built ‘power toy.’ It is available in black, white, pink and purple, and usually retails at about £89.99. I got mine whilst on offer at Forbidden Pleasures (the first time I had used said retailer). Dispatch was prompt and the package was discreetly plain.
My first impression on opening the box is that the Doxy is a sizeable pleasure instrument, by comparison to the Lovehoney Mains Powered Classic wand.
- Doxy has a length of 14.5 inches from head to the end of the flex surrounding the power cord. Its body is ABS plastic and aluminium, with three silicone buttons (power, ‘+’ and ‘-‘) and a hypoallergenic medical-grade PVC head.
- By contrast the Lovehoney wand is about 2 inches shorter, and is constructed from plastic (latex-free and phthalate-free). It operates using a scrolling click wheel.
- Instructions for the Doxy say that either water-based or silicone-based lubricants are possible to use. Meanwhile, the Lovehoney wand’s leaflet advises to only use water-based lubricant.
Cleaning either of these wands will require a soft damp cloth and toy cleaner. The head of the Lovehoney wand does have concentric circling ridges (5 in total) around its circumference, so this makes for more rigorous cleaning to ensure all gunk is removed. The Doxy’s head is completely smooth, and so is far easier to clean.
Giving the wands a whirr
Speed settings of the Lovehoney wand range from approximately 5000 RPM up to 6500 RPM. Doxy’s settings cover a wider range of intensities, from 3000 RPM – 9000 RPM. Now that’s impressive! Another feature the Doxy boasts is a plug top power supply unit (PSU), which means a low DC voltage travels into the massager. With a simple plug adaptor, you can use your Doxy all over the world!
Powering on the Doxy, it rumbles into life. Going from slowest to fastest vibrations there are approximately 8 levels. There is a ‘Pulse’ setting; to operate simply switch off the Doxy then press and hold the power button for 2 seconds. Releasing the power button will enable the pulse, whereby vibrations ramp up from lowest intensity to highest, on a looping cycle. It’s also possible to vary the time it takes for the ascending vibrations to build, by pressing the (+) and (-) buttons.
This function seems a useful feature for a Dominant partner to use on a submissive for edge play, or for a solo session where you want to delay reaching climax.
The large head on the Doxy Plug-in vibrating wand massager means it transmits its rumbling vibrations all over the vulva. This ensures clitoral and labial coverage is maximised. I like to use the Doxy on a lower intensity to start with, as it is powerful enough even at lower speeds to arouse the erogenous areas. Within mere minutes I can cum from the deep core-gasm rumbles of it’s wide head. I’d love to get some attachments for it, to put it to use against my g-spot too.
The Doxy is good at displacing lubricant at higher speeds though, so it is wise to start off at low intensities. Using it on my forearm to try and relieve some tension from a repetitive strain injury (not obtained from dildo diddling- honest!), I could see the silicone lubricant I was using being centrifugally forced out from under the head of the Doxy.
The Doxy Plug-in vibrating wand can be enjoyed by men as well as women. Social media discussions about its versatility at enhancing male masturbation highlight its use at stimulating the frenulum, perineum and scrotum. Besides, loads of guys like power tools, amiright? The Doxy is essentially a power tool!
Crank up the volume, whether it’s The Beach Boys or the Beastie Boys
The Doxy plug-in vibrating wand is a loud toy, and can be heard through doors and walls. For this reason, it is not going to be the best to use if you prefer to masturbate stealthily. As an indicator of it’s audibility, at the lowest speed, it is not quite audible through a closed door. This was with some good ol’ Classic FM blasting up from the hallway. I swear Mr Bunny cranks the volume up to a higher than ‘normal’ level for listening to in the kitchen! At the highest speed, the Doxy plug-in vibrating wand can be discernibly heard through the door (despite the background music). Moreover, I plugged it in our spare room, leaving it lying on the floor. Switched on at full intensity, it was heard through the wall adjoining my daughter’s room.
And I had a giggle when I went back to the spare room, and found the beast had propelled itself along the floor almost to the end of it’s power lead. The lead is 3m long too, so this highlights the force of the vibrations on the Doxy!
I like the Doxy for it’s aesthetic looks, its power and ability to induce toe-curling orgasms in minutes. I’d rate it 9/10, with the deduction in marks from 10 purely for its noise levels. Although I’ve only compared it with the Lovehoney wand here, a fellow blogger agreed that it’s the best mains-powered wand in its price-range (personal communication with the host at TheBrunetteReviews.com).
