we-vibe 3 review

We-vibe have a range of sex toys available and there’s previously been simpler versions of the We-Vibe. This is the We-Vibe 3, a much improved and more powerful toy than previous models and is specifically aimed at couples.

What’s in the box?

The We-Vibe 3 comes in it’s own special plastic case which is also the charging base and holds all the bits together.

Included with your We-Vibe 3 is:

  • The We-Vibe 3 itself
  • Remote control
  • Charging case
  • Plug in charge adapter
  • Instruction manual
  • Guarantee

What does it look like?

There are two sides to the We-vibe 3, a large side and a smaller side. The smaller side is what goes inside the vagina. It’s got ridges on it which feels very nice when it rubs against your g-spot during sex.

The larger side is for stimulating the clitoris. This side also has the controls and the We-Vibe logo embossed on it.

What does it feel like?

Made from 100% medical grade silicone, the We-Vibe 3 is nice and soft. You will also notice it’s quite bendy and flexible and can even be opened up to a right angle.

As it’s made entirely from silicone you must use a water-based lube with it. If you use a silicone-based lube with a silicone made toy it will damage and degrade the toy.

When you’re spending money on such a good quality sex toy it’s important to look after them as well as you can, and that means using a good water-based lube with it.

How big is it?

Insertable size is 3.25 inches. It’s just the right size to curve up inside you and nestle agains the g-spot. It is very slim and easily small enough for the We-Vibe 3 and your partner to fit inside you at the same time.

How is it powered?

The We-Vibe 3 is mains powered which is brilliant. My favourite sex toys are ones you can plug in and charge up. Batteries drive me mad!

There are two motors inside the We-vibe 3, one on each side giving it plenty of power.

To charge the We-Vibe 3 you simply put it onto the charging base, push the charger cable into the back of the base and insert the plug into a UK mains plug.

The advice is to charge the We-Vibe 3 for 24 hours before you use it. Being impatient this was a major downside to me. When you’ve just got your new toy you want to use it, not have to sit and watch it charge for a full day!!

However as this is an expensive and good quality sex toy, it’s better to follow the manufacturers advice and do what they say rather than risk damaging the battery life before you’ve even used it.

The long 24 hour charge is only once though so at least it’s not that long every time. After this initial charge it only takes a couple of hours to recharge between each use.

How loud is it?

It is whisper quiet. However it doesn’t really matter too much as this sex toy is designed for couples. So it’s not likely sound is going to be a problem during sex.

If you were to use it on your own, which you still could do, you can be assured it is very very quiet and just makes a gentle humming noise as it vibrates.

Does it really work?

The smallest side of the We-Vibe 3 is designed to be worn half inside the woman (vaginally), and the other half outside, resting over the clitoral area. What’s great during sex is that both of you can feel the vibrations.

It is small enough to fit inside and curves up to where the g-spot is, leaving room for your partner too.

From the woman’s point of view, because your partner is inside you at the same time, his body keeps the outer arm pressed against your clitoris – as well as him pressing against the curve of the toy itself.

The man can feel the We-Vibe 3 inside as he moves in and out of you too, but it is very comfortable for him. The feel of the silicone covering and water-based lubricant allows for easy movement.

Trust me there’s plenty of room for your partner and the We-vibe 3 because the toy is only small. On first impression it’s natural to wonder how on earth it works.

It’s much easier to understand when you try it, but it does work very well, and the reviews on the Lovehoney website back this up.

You can use the We-Vibe 3 on your own but it is quite slim and might not be enough to satisfy you vaginally without your partner but you can certainly have some great solo clitorall orgasms with it.

 

A couple of reviewers mentioned they had experienced some “chafing” if the We-Vibe isn’t in the right position, and another said they had found it slipped out of position. This is something to be aware of and make sure you get it in the right place to feel nice and comfy.

If you are having really fast sex it will move out of position and someone did find the vibrations were “lost.”

I think it’s more useful for enjoying slow passionate sex with that you can build up to an easy incredible orgasm with rather than quick fast sex.

If you’re going to use a sex toy during sex then it’s unlikely you’re going to want it to be over and done as fast as possible anyway, you want to enjoy it and feel the pleasure.

How do you use it?

To switch on all you do is simply press the little nodule on the largest side of the We-Vibe 3 for a couple of seconds. One press and it switches on and starts vibrating.

There’s a remote control for changing the functions which is great! It makes it nice and easy to control whilst you’re using the We-Vibe 3 during sex.

To use the remote control all you do is press the top of the remote and with each press it moves you through the 6 different functions.

To switch off you can either press and hold down the button on the remote control, or press the nodule on the We-Vibe 3 itself.

The remote control works 3 metres away. I remember when “remote controlled” toys used to have a very short wire attached to the toy that you had to reach down for, and they were always breaking.

Sex toy technology has moved on massively.

How many settings does it have?

There are 6 functions to move through. These are low, high, wave, pulse, tease, cha cha. My favourite is tease.

The We-Vibe 3 also has “memory technology” and remembers which function you were last on if you use it again within an hour. I didn’t find this a big selling point personally because it isn’t much hassle to quickly press the remote control to move up to the function you want if you use it again within the hour, but I guess it is a nice feature to have.

What are the good points?

  • It’s completely waterproof.

Here’s a shot of the waterproof demonstration video.

  • The remote control means you don’t have to stop and change the settings on the toy itself, you can do it remotely. No need to get your hands trapped between each others bodies as you change setting.
  • Being rechargeable and not having to bother with batteries.
  • Easy to clean.
  • Good for slower passionate sex and mind-blowing orgasms for both partners.

What are the bad points?

  • Having to wait 24 hours of charge time before you can use it.
  • It is not cheap but it is a luxury well made toy.
  • If you are having fast sex it can move out of position.

We-Vibe 3 Tips

  • Keep all of the bits together. You don’t want to lose any bits like the charging stand or remote control. It will all fit neatly into the case.
  • Use only a water-based lube to avoid damaging the soft silicone covering.
  • Initially don’t have sex too fast so the toy stays in position, once you’ve got the hang of it you can experiment with what works for you.

What do other people say?

The reviews for this toy are very good and there is one hilarious review I have to point out, who talks about his girlfriend wearing the We-vibe 3 to the pub.

(You can walk round with it inside you). In the review he uses the remote control to switch the We-Vibe 3 on and off at various times to build his girlfriend up into a frenzy in preparation for a raunchy afternoon at home.

What happened is the remote control wouldn’t turn the We-vibe 3 off on this occasion, and she was getting closer and closer to orgasm in the middle of a busy pub…

Where can I get one?

Lovehoney £106.99 including delivery.

Update >>>>I have just written a review of the newer We Vibe 4 Plus. This is a newer model with remote technology and its own mobile phone app.
