There’s a new We-Vibe couples vibrator on the market now, and not only has it already been nominated for and won awards, but this past Valentine’s Day it was featured on a revered daytime TV show. I was lucky enough to receive a We-Vibe 3 for review, and it is definitely an improvement over the We-Vibe II.
Like its predecessors, We-Vibe 3 is a U-shaped silicone vibrator, with a motor at each end. One side is insertable for G-spot stimulation, and the other end reaches up to stimulate the clitoris. I love dual stimulation toys for solo play, but this one is meant to be used during intercourse
Rather than a satiny storage pouch, the We-Vibe 3 comes with a discreet charging base that doubles as a storage box. I’m sure this sex toy is totally waterproof, because the power cable plugs into the base, not a hole on the vibe. Just make sure the We-Vibe 3 is positioned correctly on the base. You’ll know it’s charging because a small yellow light will come on. It doesn’t appear to ever go out.
The remote is interesting, because it doesn’t need a battery; It’s just supposed to last for 5 to 7 years. When the remote quits working, or if you happen to misplace it, you can always just use the button on the We-Vibe 3 to control it.
I actually really like the remote. It fits nicely in my hand, and the single button is almost thumb-shaped, making it comfortable to hold and easy to use. I do notice that in some positions it loses connection with the vibe and pushing the button doesn’t do anything. Moving the remote closer to me or pointing it at my crotch fixes it.
To operate the We-Vibe 3, push the tiny little nub on the top of the clit end. This is the vibe’s power button. The motor starts out at the first speed of constant vibration. Then just push the button on the remote to cycle through the settings.
There are two speeds of continuous vibration, a pattern of a busy signal pulse followed by fast pulses, a rumbly roller coaster, short rapid pulses, and a pattern of 2 long pulses followed by 3 medium pulses. At any time you can turn the vibe off by holding the remote button for a few seconds. When you turn the vibe back on, it remembers the last setting used.
I love it when a good thing is made even better. That’s certainly the case with the We-Vibe 3, as I mentioned in my follow-up on the We-Vibe II. It’s certainly more powerful, and one of my main complaints about the We-Vibe II was the awkward button. Well, thanks to the We-Vibe 3 having a remote, the button is no longer an issue. Too bad the range isn’t better.
Maybe it’s my anatomy, but I still struggle with this vibe moving around too much inside me during intercourse. Rather than enhancing my experience, I feel like it adds a challenge. I just can’t get the kind of G-spot stimulation I need with it sliding and shifting unpredictably inside me.
Despite being billed as a sex toy for couples, wearing my We-Vibe 3 during intercourse is my least favorite way to use it. After experimenting with several different positions, spooning works best for when it comes to keeping the We-Vibe 3 in the right place. Even then, I still have to hold it between my legs at times. So, since it’s not a hands-free experience anyway, I really prefer just using a clit vibe during intercourse.
However, I think this is a great warm-up toy. I’m not really into vibration patterns so much anymore, but the roller coaster and short, rapid pulses are pleasantly teasing and useful for getting in the mood. I can kick back, relax, and just let the vibrations increase my arousal.
It’s also fun to use solo. Since the middle part of the We-Vibe 3 is flexible, I can position it where I want and move it however I need to, like an extension of my fingers. I can even wear it under my clothes as long as nobody else is around, as this vibe does make some noise.
Overall, I think the We-Vibe 3 is a great sex toy. I’m just bummed about the We-Vibe 3 not working better for me during sex, but to be honest, I’m not surprised since it’s designed just like the We-Vibe II. Oh, and I have more photos of the We-Vibe 3 posted over on Photobucket.
