When I first got The Bodywand series to review, I made fun of the seemingly prudish “personal massager” terminology of the products. Just call a sex toy a sex toy! I thought, until one painful day at the gym had me busting out the largest of the three toys and using it on my gluteus maximus. No, not in that way. Soon, I found myself using these toys on every single muscle in my body. Yes, even in that way.

The Good: The best part about The Bodywand series is how strong they are, even the little one. The two bigger ones have adjustable knobs that allow for every speed variation between gentle and jackhammer so you can find that perfect speed for you, but the little one only has set speeds. The smallest one is strong for it’s size, but it uses a lot of batteries, making it far from environmentally friendly. The largest one plugs into the wall, so it packs the biggest punch and is great for home use. The medium-sized one, however, is almost as powerful and is rechargable, making it great for home use or taking with you when you travel. I love not having to use so many batteries – now if I could only remember to charge it.
The Bad: To me and my partner, the knob to adjust the speed is counter-intuitive. Down is up and up is down and we’ve ruined a few orgasms accidentally going to a vibration speed we weren’t expecting. The Bodywands also only have a single repeated pulsation, lacking the various rhythms that other vibrators often have. The little one has rhinestones I don’t like aesthetically and I really don’t like when they come off, sticking to my thigh and making D.E. freak out during sex that I have a “weird mole” growing. It’s also not really environmentally friendly (made out of plastic and uses lots of batteries) so I’d probably pass on buying that one again.
The Bottom Line: The Bodywand series’ adjustable power makes it great for use both as a sex toy and a body massager.
