We-Vibe Rave Review
Orgasms are good for you, they can lift your spirits and put a spring in your step. Unfortunately, achieving the big ‘O’ isn’t always easy. Genitalia is a complex thing, and the simple act of the penis entering the vagina just won’t do it for the majority of us.
What can I say? We sometimes just need more! According to Dr Beverly Whipple (known for identifying the elusive erogenous zone) we need to stimulate our Gräfenberg spots (that’s the G Spot to you and I) with gusto. Thankfully the We-Vibe Rave has been designed to do just that and it’s my job to let you know how well it does this.
Our We-Vibe Rave Review
We’ll also get better acquainted with the vibrator – exploring how it can be used for solo play or playing with a partner. There might also be a couple of ideas on how to make play go with a bang!
As a fan of sex toys, I like to be well-informed, and I like to experiment! I decided to try out the We-Vibe Rave to see if hit the spot. I’ll share my findings later, but let’s just say I wasn’t disappointed…
We-Vibe Rave Features & Specs
We-Vibe is a well-known brand with a variety of sex toys. The first We-Vibe vibrator hit the shelves in 2008 and the brand has grown steadily in popularity. Let’s take a closer look at the main features of the We-Vibe Rave:
Design & look
I don’t think I’m painting the product in a particularly good light, but in fairness, it’s quite hard to describe! The We-Vibe Rave does not look like a typical vibrator. It has a sort of tapered edge, and the end (head) is quite globular.
Color-wise the vibrator is purple, and I have no problem with that at all. Purple seems rather regal, and I like a sex toy that stands out.
I might not be 100% convinced by the aesthetics of this one. However, I’ve always believed that you should never judge a book by its cover, so I was still more than happy to give the We-Vibe Rave a go.
High quality material
The We-Vibe Rave is made from silicone, which is non-toxic (free from phthalates, latex and BPA). The material is also odour-free and known to be hypoallergenic (ideal for those with sensitive skin). In the past I’ve picked up a silicone toy and immediately thought how soft and supple it is. The Rave feels silky smooth to the touch, but I was surprised at how firm it felt.
The We-Vibe Rave is a strong and powerful vibrator, so if you have a particularly touch-sensitive clit you might need to take it slowly. The silicone coating works well to bring the vibrations down a notch, but the toy still provides quite the kick! There are 10 vibration levels to choose from – I wonder if you can make it all the way to level 10?
The We-Vibe Rave is eco-friendly too. You won’t need to purchase expensive throwaway batteries. You can recharge this vibrator and it will give you up to 2 full hours of play.
Easy to clean
The silicone coating is non-porous – so it doesn’t absorb air or liquid. This makes the We-Vibe Rave a hygienic toy, but you obviously still need to clean the vibrator after each use.
The We-Vibe Rave is splash-proof, so you can wipe and rinse it with lukewarm water and soap. Don’t forget to make sure it’s dry, and then you can place the toy back in its satin pouch until next time. I feel it’s important to point out that the vibrator is not waterproof, so you can’t fill up the sink, leave the toy submerged and go off for a glass of wine I’m afraid!
If a toy is powerful, you expect it to make a loud noise, however the We-Vibe Rave is relatively quiet. It’s not silent by any means, but if you close the door, and put a blanket over you, the buzz will be muffled. This allows you to focus on play rather than worry about listening ears.
Getting The Most From Your We-Vibe Rave
The We-Vibe Rave can be used for solo play or to add a little more intensity to play and sex with a partner.
The We-Vibe Rave is a G-Spot vibrator, but you don’t have to insert it to enjoy the vibrations and sensations. You can rub the vibrator externally and use the top corner to tease your clit.
If you want to go all the way with your new toy, you can find a position that suits. We suggest trying out a few until you find one that feels good. You can use lube to help things move along. However, due to the vibrator being made from silicone you should use water-based lubricant.
You can masturbate, and your partner can attend to their own needs while they watch you use the We-Vibe Rave. Or you can let your other half take control. The latter can be fun, as you get to take it easy and enjoy the experience.
If you want to go a step further you could add in some BDSM style play. A blindfold and restraints add a new dimension, giving you the sensation of not knowing what’s going to happen next. Your partner can vary the intensity, stopping and starting to take things up a notch.
You can also use the We-Vibe Rave to spice up sex. A vibrator can be used during penetration to tease, tickle and tantalize. Use it on nipples and around the genitalia to take sex to another level. Don’t forget you can also use it on each other – both of you can have fun with this purple pleaser!
How about using the We-Vibe Rave to take traditional doggy style to the next level? You get comfy on all fours whilst your partner slides up behind you. This is a great position for getting more than just penetration! You partner can use their hands to rub your body, play with your nipples and touch your vagina. The We-Vibe Rave can be gently used to excite your genitals whilst your partner thrusts.
Alternatively go a step further and do the double – double penetration that is! Anal sex can be daunting, but like most things in life, you won’t know whether or not you like it until you try it! Your partner can touch and caress you first (anal play) so you can get used to the sensation. Lubrication can work wonders to facilitate anal, so use plenty. Your partner can slowly penetrate – just a little at first, pulling out, and then penetrating a little more each time.
Once you get the hang of it you can invite the We-Vibe Rave to the party. After all, the vagina usually gets plenty of action, it wouldn’t want to miss out completely! Depending on your positioning, and balance, you can use the vibrator on yourself, or your partner can reach around to the front and use the toy to touch the outside or inner of your vagina.
Just to let you know – if you’re going for G-Spot vibrator action coupled with anal sex, be prepared for weak knees and a crescendo of an orgasm – this is a double whammy that might make your eyes water.
Does The We-Vibe Rave Hit The Spot?
I decided to have two lots of fun with the We-Vibe Rave – firstly on my own, then with my hubby. After all, isn’t that what lazy Sunday mornings are for?
Solo play with the We-Vibe Rave proved stimulating. I decided to use it externally initially as the angles seemed a little extreme. I thought a warm up might help! I kept the intensity low to start with, as I like to build up slowly. The vibration set my vagina tingling and I brushed it delicately on my clit for an added sensation. It did the trick!
From there we moved on to playing together. My other half didn’t need much encouragement and soon had the We-Vibe Rave in his possession. This time we decided to try out its G-Spot arousing capabilities. The suggested method is to use a twisting motion to press and massage. I soon began to feel the familiar waves of pleasure washing over me – and all concerns of angular lines and overly firm silicone were gone in an instant!
Despite my initial reservations about the appearance of the We-Vibe Rave, I have to profess to liking it. It was much firmer than most of the vibrators I’ve used, but as they say, it’s not the tool – but how you use it!
Would I recommend it to others? Yes – I think it’s a versatile toy, good for solo play or with your partner. I also like that you can use it internally or externally. Suddenly the big ‘O’ looks more accessible than ever before!
