Looking to take your evening in a new direction without getting too outside of the box? Enter the We-Vibe Touch. This new clitoral vibrator, which doubles as a massager, is a creative, slightly upgraded take on a classic.
The We-Vibe brand has been much loved since it launched, so it’s perhaps not a surprise that the Touch has been popular since its release. As the name suggests, We-Vibe doesn’t cast its net counter-productively wide when it comes to product options. Instead, We-Vibe does one thing and does it well: vibrators that rock your world.
What makes the brand stand out is its close connection with sexual health pros and experts, and its willingness to push science to the limit for maximum pleasure. The brand has received mostly positive reviews from customers, health experts, and journalists alike.
We-Vibe makes vibrators both for couples and for solo fun, and the Touch can easily be used for either scenario. It’s ideal for clitoral stimulation either on your own or during a hook-up with a partner. It’s also a great massager for other parts of the body.
External vibes have the honor of serving as many women’s first sex toys. They’re classics for a reason—who among us doesn’t remember their first “bullet”? That said, those external vibes sometimes take a backseat as we get older, learn what we like in other areas of our sex lives, and seek out more internal-focused toys that can provide a similar sensation to what we get from many of our partners. The We-Vibe Touch is a perfect reminder of why external vibes should always have a place in any woman’s arsenal, whether they’re used in tandem with another toy or all on their own.
When on the hunt for solo toys, rabbits and other bigger goodies designed for internal use can be pretty dang enticing. And they’re certainly great, but it’s important to remember that bigger isn’t always better, especially if your clitoris is feeling neglected lately. After all, it’s one of the most important keys to female pleasure—you’re much more likely to reach orgasm if you’re getting external stimulation. If you’re missing a nimble, no-fuss toy in your collection for moments when your clitoris needs attention, the Touch is a great option to consider.
A closer look
What defines every aspect of the Touch’s design and features is that it provides a slightly elevated spin on the iconic clitoral vibrator we’ve all come to love. The We-Vibe Touch offers a rounded tip for a more direct sensation, and wave-like shape that hits in all the right places.
One thing that make the Touch especially unique is its vibration speed and pitch. While lots of vibes are known for their lighter, faster-paced pitch, the Touch does things a little differently. It’s defined by a more “grumbly” style of vibration that provides a more deeply resonating power as it caresses the clitoris. The vibrations are stronger and heavier, while still remaining gentle enough for most women’s tastes.
The Finer Details
The Touch has a noticeably silky sensation on the skin, and that’s because it’s made with soft, medical-grade silicone. The silicone is BPA-free, phthalate-free, and made without latex. As a result, you’re not only far less likely to experience any type of negative reaction if you have sensitive skin, but you’ll also have the peace of mind that comes with enjoying a toy made without questionable chemicals. This is one of the perks of buying from a company that places a high value on sexual health and on consulting with wellness professionals.
You can charge the Touch with a USB, which makes it compatible with most modern charging devices and electronics. It takes about 90 minutes to recharge, and you can enjoy about two hours of fun with each charge. You’ll see a low-power alert when the Touch’s power is running low, so you won’t have to worry about an unexpected shut-off when you’re in the throes of play. (After all, there are few things more frustrating than being on the brink of orgasm when the key player in your fun comes to an abrupt stop.)
Cleaning the Touch is simple: just use soap and water. I’d suggest a toy cleaner for the fact that it’s alcohol, and fragrence-free. It’s also waterproof, which not only makes it easy to clean, but makes it a more versatile toy. You can safely bring the Touch into the bath or shower.
It’s also easy to pack. It’s small, discreet, and fits easily into a carry-on bag or purse when you head off on an adventure. Some customers have reported that the charger end of the Touch comes loose easily, but it pops back on fairly simply for an easy return to play. Just make sure to set it down in a secure position, so that you won’t have to worry about charging issues.
- A soft sensation – We-Vibe describes its texture as “silky soft,” and it’s easy to see why. The soft silicone used to make the Touch glides gently along the skin for a satisfying sensation.
- Waterproof capabilities – You can bring your Touch into the shower with you for a steamy morning, either solo or with a partner. You can also take the Touch into the bath for a long, sexy, and relaxing soak in the tub.
- Rechargeable – No batteries needed here. The Touch can recharge in about 90 minues with a USB chord.
- Small & Compact – Easy to pack along wherever you go. Its USB charger makes it simple to repower wherever you are.
- Quiet – The Touch’s low volume makes it an even better option for enjoying on the road. Whether you’re at home or traveling, its quietness is ideal for discreet and spontaneous play.
- Rumbling vibrations – Who needs a light pulse when you can have a rumble? The Touch’s pulses radiate deep and set off your pleasure center. Whether you’re using it on your clitoris or another erogenous zone, it’s sure to make an impact.
- A gentleness in harmony with its power – The Touch may be intense and powerful, but it also has a gentleness to its movements. Its deep rumblings, and gentle touch, work harmoniously to provide the perfect sense of pleasure.
Eight vibration settings
Mix things up for every mood with the Touch’s eight vibration settings. Touch by We-Vibe packs the power to deliver 8 vibration modes with a deeply satisfying rumble. First, you can select such an option with the intensity of your choice. Choose your setting from low, medium, high, and if you’re feeling extra adventurous, ultra.
Then, you can take your pick from the type of vibrational rhythm you’d like to experience. The “pulse” option is a consistent, sexy rhythm. The “tease” setting goes hard, building you up to the brink, and then draws back again for a series of softer vibrations before ramping up again. The “wave” flows seamlessly through peaks and valleys, taking you along for the ride as it moves. The “cha-cha” has a dance-like rhythm, with two intense vibrational peaks followed by three softer nudges, which then repeats.
You can start on one intensity setting and slowly work your way up, or choose whatever feels right in each moment. The same is true of whichever rhythm you select. You can even try a different setting on each night.
Should you consider the We-Vibe Touch?
When it comes to a quality external vibrator, the Touch checks every box. It’s compact, high-tech, discreet, affordable, and designed to deliver maximum pleasure. Its deep rumbling sensations and silky contours bring unique qualities to your typical external vibe. Whether you want to use it with a partner, or by yourself, the Touch offers a multitude of ways to ensure a good time.
If you are prone to enjoying higher pitched vibrators, that pack a ridiculous amount of power, this probably isn’t the toy for you. The deeper vibrations are favorable to those of Lelo, and tend to be more pleasurable for those who like that grumbly vibration. The lowest mode can be a little more powerful, but with four different speeds, you’re bound to find one you like.
There’s only one control button on the very bottom which makes it extremely user-friendly. When you first click the button to start it, you will start at the lowest level vibration. There are three other vibration strengths, and then after that 4 different pulsing modes. It is definitely for clitoral only, if you’re looking to use this internally, I would suggest looking into other options.
So, the real question, is the We-Vibe Touch worth the money? In my opinion, most definitely. With an affordable price tag, this vibe is worth every penny. Strong vibrations, silky silicone material, and design give this toy the upper hand. Batteries die, jelly materials in time start to decay, but good vibrators can last a lifetime.
