Review | It Only Takes One To Tango

I’m always on the hunt for new, female friendly, sex-positive businesses that I can share with you. Recently I stumbled across Burlesque Toyshop via a friend’s blog and was instantly impressed & woo’ed by their site’s gorgeous vintage, burlesque theme and awesome selection of products. Browsing through their website feels like you’re stepping into someone’s expertly curated boudoir come boutique. Seriously, you need to go check out their site and while you’re at it, take a peruse of their Tumblr – it’s sexy. So, needless to say I was totally stoked when they said they would like to work with me!

A few weeks ago, Burlesque Toyshop sent me the We-Vibe Tango to try. I’ve been dying to try the We-Vibe Tango ever since I saw  reviews popping up all over the blogosphere hailing it as a “holy grail sex toy.” For those of you who aren’t familiar, the We-Vibe Tango is known as being one of the most powerful small sized bullet vibrators on the market. So I was anxious to find out whether the toy lives up to it’s illustrious reputation. The short answer? YES.

The We-Vibe Tango is a petite and very powerful clitoral vibrator (designed to be used externally.) The tapered tip delivers powerful, pin-pointed vibrations to your clit or wherever you choose to place it! Made of body safe ABS plastic, the We-Vibe Tango is crafted to the strictest consumer and health standards. In other words, it’s made of smooth, hard, shiny plastic that is 100% body-safe. A powerful update on the classic bullet or lipstick vibrator, the Tango is fully waterproof (which means you can take it in the bath, shower or wherever else your sexy heart desires), rechargeable by USB and very long lasting (you can get up to 2 hours of play on a 90 minute charge, so it’s ready when you are!!)

The We-Vibe Tango features 8 different vibration modes that are all really powerful. As you probably know from reading this blog, I love a toy with really strong, deep rumbly vibrations. The Tango totally delivers in this regard. Usually when I get a new toy I’ll crank it up to the highest or second highest power level right away. However, with the Tango I found that the first and second vibrations were pretty freaking strong and I was able to have a couple of really great orgasms before I even veered into the higher levels.

I’m not really sure what I can say about this toy except that is totally awesome and pretty much rocks my world (bedroom? toy box?) This is one of the most satisfyingly intense toys that I own and has joined the club along with my Jimmyjane Form 2 & Crave Duet as my favourite “afternoon solo quickie” toys (you know for those times when you just need to have an orgasm but you don’t have a lot of time on your hands? I can’t be the only one who has this problem.) If you’re looking for really intense vibrations packed into a super small package or are looking for a more discreet alternative to your favourite wand style toy, the Tango is for you. The Tango reminds me a bit of one of those thrilling roller-coaster rides that takes you from 0 to 100km/hr almost instantly. It’s quite the ride.

However, if you’re someone with a really sensitive clitoris who tends to like more subtle stimulation, you might find the Tango a bit intense. If this is the case, the We-Vibe Touch would probably be a better match for you. It’s also small & discreet and another one of my personal favourites!

Speaking of size, not only is this toy ultra powerful, it’s also ultra tiny. The Tango measures 3.5 inches in length, making it just slightly longer than a tube of lipstick. To give you an idea of scale, Joe the Intern has agreed to pose next to it.

 

Thanks Joe! I should also mention that the Tango is beyond simple to use, with a one-touch button. Hold the button down for a few seconds to turn/off & click it once to cycle through the various strengths and patterns.

The We-vibe Tango comes in a gorgeous box, complete with a satin storage case and USB charging cord that can either be plugged into your computer or the wall.

I have a really hard time saying anything negative about this toy, however if there was anything that We-Vibe could improve upon, it’s the way it charges. The toy connects via magnet to the charging dock. In theory, this sounds great – however, I’ve discovered that you have to have the toy at just the right angle for the magnet to connect & for it to charge. Move it slightly, and the magnet disconnects and the charge stops. This can be pretty annoying. This is the only thing that keeps this toy from being absolutely perfect.

With that said, it’s not enough to keep me from loving the We-Vibe Tango & recommending it to friends. The We-Vibe Tango is still one of the best toys I have reviewed and I know is going to be a toy-box favourite for years to come. Pun intended.

PS. This review was brought to you by the lovely people at Burlesque Toyshop. Thank you – You guys rock! I received the We-Vibe Tango free of charge in exchange for my honest assessment of the product. All opinions all my own because that’s how I roll.

  • I have one of these. I bought it after seeing it in a local shop. I love it! So much so, I threw away all of my other bullet types.

      That’s awesome! I love this toy so much as well. It’s definitely a HUGE upgrade from my other bullet toys that I’m thinking of doing the same and “cleaning house”
