Review | Introducing the Sonia Wand by Sensual Hut

A few years ago I bought the Hitachi Magic Wand  because I’d heard it was the “Cadillac of Vibrators” – the original, the be-all-end-all, the orgasm holy grail. Frankly, I was curious (who wouldn’t be?!) However, I think I am the only person on earth that doesn’t completely love the Hitachi. Yes, it’s truly the most powerful vibrator I’ve ever experienced – but, not necessarily in a good way. It’s so powerful that it actually numbs out my lady parts. I think I have used it a total of 3 times since purchasing it and one of those times was to give myself a neck massage. Since then I’ve been weary of trying any other wand style vibrators.

However, when Sensual Hut contacted me to see if I’d be interested in reviewing one of their toys, I decided I’d give wands another try. Enter the Sonia Wand by Sensual Hut, a sleek, gorgeous and compact wand style vibrator.

The Sonia Wand by Sensual Hut is made of 100% velvety smooth, medical grade silicone and features a gorgeous metallic plated ABS plastic insert. It has 7 different vibration modes and three intense power levels, and a flexible head to help reach all of you &/or your partner’s curves. To use this toy, place the bulb head of the toy on your clit, lay back & enjoy! You can also use the Sonia as a massage tool for other sensitive areas on you or your partner’s body.

There’s a couple of things that I really like about this toy:

1) It’s rechargeable. Unlike the Hitachi Magic Wand which plugs into the wall (a feature I’ve always found awkward and slightly scary) the Sonia Wand is fully rechargeable by USB.

2) It’s way more convenient.  At approximately 3/4 the size of the Hitachi and at least 1/2 the weight, this is just a way more convenient and discrete toy to travel with or keep in your nightstand. Plus, you never have to plug it in.

3) It’s ergonomic. The curved design of this toy is simply gorgeous and it fits nicely in your hand. Because it’s a smaller sized wand it’s also very easy to manoeuvre with intuitive controls.

4) It’s powerful. This toy has a lot of power. Not quite as much as the Hitachi, but enough to give you some really great orgasms!

5) It’s silicone. One of my complaints about the Hitachi Magic Wand is the plastic material that makes up it’s bulbous head actually really irritates my skin. Although I found the Sonia did numb me out a bit after use, it was nothing like the Hitachi. Also, because it’s silicone, it didn’t irritate my lady parts.

What I didn’t like about this toy, was that it delivered vibrations to far too wide an area – which is the reason I tend to avoid wand style vibrators in the first place. There’s nothing wrong with this toy, it’s just that at the end of the day, I still prefer toys that provide precise and pinpointed stimulation like the We-Vibe Touch, The We-Vibe Tango, The Jimmyjane Form 2 or the Crave Duet. With that said, I’m still going to keep the Sonia around because I think she’d make a nice addition when it comes to massage during foreplay.

However, if you are a fan of wand vibrators this one is really nice! Pretty, easy to use, rechargeable, waterproof and doesn’t look like it’s been teleported from 1984. The Sonia retails for $79.99 and is available exclusively through Sensual Hut. Enter the code skinnydip at checkout and get 15% off anything in the store!

What do you guys think – any fans of wand style vibes out there?

PS. I received this toy free of charge in exchange for my honest review of the product. All opinions are my own because that is how I roll.
