The wand comes in a cardboard box, nestled in a foam insert. Included are the following:
- 3-pin UK plug with USB connection.
- the USB-compatible magnetic charging cable.
- a dark purple velvet storage drawstring pouch.
Instructions on how to operate the Sweetest Taboo Magic Wand are on the reverse of the box (see below).
Features of the Sweetest Taboo Magic Wand
The wand is made from silicone and does not contain latex or phthalates. It is ultra quiet and is rechargeable with a run-time of up to 2 hours. The two ends have separate motors, so the Sweetest Taboo Magic Wand can be used as an external vibrator (at the wider end) or an internal vibrator (at the tapered end. The motors cannot be turned on simultaneously though. Each motor has 3 speed settings and 7 pattern settings. Lastly the Sweetest Taboo is waterproof, if you wish to use it in the bath or shower.
How to operate the Sweetest Taboo Magic Wand
The front of the wand has the three function buttons moulded into the silicone. They are a solid ‘up’ triangle (pointing to the wider end), a ‘()’ power button, and a solid ‘down’ triangle (pointing to the narrow end).
On the rear of the wand are the magnetic connecting points for the charging cable. The magnetic contacts on the charging cable connect to the wand, and the USB end can be plugged into the 3-pin plug to connect directly to the mains. Alternatively, you can connect the USB end to your laptop / PC. Charging may be slower this way, so I tend to use the mains plug.
To turn the wand on, press and hold the () button, until the blue LED lights up. The up and down buttons control the motors in the two ends (‘up’ to switch the wider end on; ‘down’ to switch the narrower end on). Repeatedly pressing either the up or down button cycles through the 3 continuous speeds and 7 pulsating patterns.
What are the vibrations like?
The vibrations of the Sweetest Taboo are higher frequency akin to the Lealso Massager, so they are not deep and rumbly. I tend to prefer constant vibrations to patterns, so whichever end I use, I mainly use the first three settings. For those that like patterns, the best way to describe them are as follows:
- Fast Pulse.
- Four fast pulses followed by a longer pulse, repeated.
- Decreasing frequency wave, alternating with increasing frequency wave.
- Ramping interval wave, (8 stages).
- High frequency longer pulses.
- Low frequency pulse followed by 10 high frequency pulses, repeated.
- Another wave pattern that seems quite similar to pattern 3 above!
As an external massager, the silicone head is soft against my vulva and clitoris with minimal drag, though I do like to use a water-based lubricant to make it glide more easily.
Internally, the shaft end sits nicely against my front wall and G-spot, but I still need clitoral stimulation to achieve orgasm, which means I need a second vibrator or bullet.
The buttons I feel are placed a bit low on the shaft, as when it’s being used internally it is slightly awkward to press the ‘down’ triangle button without it getting slick from lubricant. Moreover, if you’re into patterns, you’re going to need to repeatedly press the same button to cycle through them until you reach the one you like. Not so much a problem for me, but its a factor to bear in mind.
This wand is priced at £54.99, and So Divine also sell a purple version, the ‘Wicked Game’ which I believe to be functionally equivalent. The price seems to be fair for a mid-range toy, and unlike most other ‘wands’ which can only be used externally, this dual ended variation gives you more options for play.
It’s not necessarily going to be for power queens, so if you’re looking for Doxy-esque vibrations, it won’t be for you.
As a rechargeable toy, it will save you pennies in terms of batteries, so if you’re new to toys, it’ll be a better option than a cheaper battery-powered vibrator.
Overall I’d rate it 8/10 for it’s appearance, ease of use and orgasm capability.
I’d like to thank So Divine for giving me the opportunity to test the Sweetest Taboo Magic Wand.
