Hey there cheeky monkeys. Time for another toy review – this week the We-Vibe Unite. I’ve talked about other We-Vibes before, it seems like there’s always a new We-Vibe version out.
There was the We-Vibe, the 2, the 2 plus, the 3, the 4, the 4 plus, the sync, the classic.. and the Unite. Not all of these are still available though.
The We-Vibe Unite looks very much like the others but surely it has some differences.
Let’s take a look at what those differences are…
Difference between We-Vibe Unite and We-Vibe 4
The main difference is the size and shape of the We-Vibes. The We Vibe Unite is slimmer and a more up to date model. Both come with remote controls and lots of vibration functions.
The Unite comes with a silk bag, as opposed to just a carry case.
Certain online shops are no longer stocking the We-Vibe 4 plus.
However to complicate matters, the Unite is a more basic model of the We-Vibe Sync, which is a lot more expensive to buy than the Unite and twice its price.
The Sync can be controlled with a phone app and features the We-Connect which we will look more into in a future review. If you’re not fussed about controlling your sex toy with your phone (to be honest I’m not), then let’s move onto the We-Vibe Unite.
What’s in the box?
The packaging is quite sexy, I love the red. You receive your We-Vibe Unite, a small sachet of lube (because this toy feels lovely with lube), a USB charger, your remote controller and a storage bag to keep everything clean and discreet.
How big is it?
Other people have also commented on being surprised at how small this toy was, it’s smaller than you might expect at 3 inches. However it is big enough to have a big impact!
It’s made from ‘body safe’ silicone, which I guess means it’s not going to harm you. And there is one colour available, like previous We-Vibes, that deep dark purple.
How is it powered?
Like other We-Vibes, and being a higher end couples sex toy, it’s rechargeable. This is so much more convenient than batteries. It’s charged up with a USB charger which plugs into either your laptop, or a USB charging plug.
Charging takes around 6 hours to complete and that gives you a full hour of running time.
How does it work?
The We-Vibe Unite sits internally, pressing against your g-spot, whilst your clit is also stimulated at the same time. It’s nice and easy to wear during sex so that you both get to feel the vibrations at the same time, which as a couple is very hot.
If you want to you can use it alone also – or be remote controlled by your partner.
To control it, there’s a single button on the remote control; it’s nice and simple when you’re in the heat of the moment and don’t want to be pressing the wrong button.
The controller works three metres away.
How many settings does it have?
There are ten different vibration functions which you can move through with your remote controller.

You can also watch the video review on Lovehoney which will tell you a bit more about the Unite.
How loud is it?
There’s barely any sound. As far as vibrating toys go, this is whisper quiet. Other reviewers have commented on this too.
What are the pros?
Being rechargeable makes life much easier. There are no batteries that run out to fuss with, just plug it in, however a charging light would help determine when it’s charging and when it’s finished.
Lots of pattern functions gives you plenty of options to play with.
Great fun to be had with the remote control and your partner teasing you.
It’s both a couples sex toy and solo toy in one.
What are the cons?
If you like super strong vibrations you may wish it had more oomph to it. On Lovehoney’s website someone returned theirs due to lack of power but was very impressed with Lovehoney’s customer service. They accept returns without issue if you’re not happy.
The main con is it’s more of an upfront investment than other cheaper toys.
It’s not fully water-proof but is ‘splash proof’ meaning it can tolerate a few splashes, but don’t go submerging it under water. Clean it with a damp cloth.
What are other people saying?
There are quite a few interesting reviews on the Lovehoney website so far.
These involve a couple of other reviewers who have worn theirs out in public. This toy is a lot of fun – if you can handle the tease when you give your partner the remote!
The main issues have been it not having quite enough power for those that like much stronger vibrations.
Overall it’s rated 4.5 out of 5.
How much is the We-Vibe Unite to buy?
We-Vibe toys are always on the pricier side and I class them as more luxurious toys. You pay more for their technology and quality.
Here are the most current ones and where to invest in your own.
Lovehoney £63.99 with free delivery.
Bondara £77.99 with free delivery.
Simply Pleasure £76.95 with free delivery.
Thanks for reading this review about the We-Vibe Unite. I hope it’s helped you make an informed decision before buying yours! And if you decide to wear yours on date night, good luck!
