I wonder if the Mystic Wand is jealous of the Hitachi. The Hitachi has been around since the ’70s, the Hitachi is the strongest vibe ever, the Hitachi is famous. But what about the Mystic Wand, in a sense the Hitachi Magic Wand’s younger relative*?
The Mystic Wand is an 8 inch long wand style vibrator with a flexible silicone head and a plastic handle with easy to use, light-up push buttons. It features 3 steady vibration speeds of increasing power and 3 pulsation patterns.
My favorite setting on the Mystic Wand is the first speed—it’s deeper, rumblier, and more Hitachiesque than the higher settings, and when I’m already super turned on, I can orgasm with it alone. Otherwise, I take more time, working my way up to the highest steady speed.
I don’t usually like vibration settings, but the Mystic Wand’s are decent. The first setting is a steady pulse, which feels too robotic to me, but I occasionally like using the 2nd, which follows a pulse-pulse-longer pulse pattern, and the 3rd, which features waves of vibrations.
As a proud Hitachi lover, I admit that the first time I used the Mystic Wand I was a bit disappointed. Even the Mystic Wand’s highest setting is no match for the Hitachi’s incredible power, and its medium and high speeds are on the buzzier side. Still, I like the Mystic Wand. Since it’s battery powered (2AA), I don’t have to deal with an annoying and sometimes limiting cord, and it’s also much lighter, quieter, and less bulky than the Hitachi.
It takes me longer to reach orgasm than with the Hitachi, but sometimes that’s a good thing—I don’t always need to get off in 60 seconds. Also, I use the Mystic Wand directly on my clit (unlike the Hitachi), so it’s more versatile. Another thing that the Mystic Wand has that the Hitachi doesn’t, is a hygienic, non-porous silicone head. It’s also splash proof, and its smaller size makes it more ideal for travel and easy storage.
If you’re looking for a moderately strong cordless, wand style vibrator, then I recommend trying the Mystic Wand. If, however, you’re looking for a toy that equals the Hitachi’s strength and rumbly vibrations and will be satisfied with nothing less, then you will be disappointed with the Mystic Wand—it’s simply not as powerful.
It’s no Hitachi, but that’s ok–the Mystic Wand has its own personality. If it were a person I’d feel the need to apologize for my initially harsh judgments towards it and say, feel free to be your silicone, cordless, bad-ass self Mystic Wand! Thanks Good Vibrations for sending me the Mystic Wand in exchange for my honest review!
*It’s not made by Hitachi but distributed by the same company, Vibratex.
