Design & Features
The device is 30 cm (12 in) long and it weighs 540 g. Muscle and nerve stimulation is provided by the device's rubberised, 6.4 cm (2.5 in) head, which is attached to the main body of the massager via a flexible neck. A 1.8 m (6 ft) cord is attached to the device to provide power from mains electricity with alternating current, and requires 120 volts.
It does not take batteries. The massager provides two vibration rates—5,000 and 6,000 rpm, which are equivalent to 83 Hz and 100 Hz—that are controlled by a switch on its body
Women's Masturbation Education
The Magic Wand has found great commercial success as a vibrator, a masturbation aid for women. Its popularity for this purpose is associated with the American artist and sex educator Betty Dodson, who used it in demonstrations and instructional classes to instruct women regarding self-pleasure techniques. Dodson became active in the sex-positive movement in the late 1960s. She recommended women put a small towel over
their sex organs in order to dull the sensation of the vibrator and prolong the pleasurable experience. Her technique became known as the Betty Dodson Method. Her sessions were known as Bodysex workshops and featured 15 naked women in supine position, each using a Magic Wand simultaneously to aid in masturbation. She provided a Magic Wand to each woman for these two-hour masturbation sessions. Dodson taught thousands of women to achieve orgasm using this technique.
Is The Hitachi Magic Wand Still Good Compared to Modern Wands?
This powerful electric wand has had a loyal following for over 30 years for good reason. High and low speeds deliver strong vibrations through the tennis ball shaped head. A slightly flexible neck allows the ball to be used in stragetic spots.
Take advatage of the female anatomy and place the vibrating head between the thighs
but not touching the vulva area. This will stimulate the clitoral legs that run along the inner thighs up to the clitoris for tantalizing foreplay.
It can also be used by two people for the best in massage and orgasmic play by sandwiching the wand between two bodies.
Male stimulation can be achieved by placing the vibrating head between the penis and testicles or testicles and anus. Add a g-spotter or Wonder Wand attachment for G-spot vaginal or prostate stimulation.
Since it generally takes women longer to climax than men, just the idea that you can orgasm in less than a minute is truly magical. it's basically a godsend if you have trouble orgasming or have been unsatisfied with other vibrators. There’s a reason the Magic Wand is a classic, after all.
Having personally used the Magic Wand both solo and with partners, position works particularly well). But the Magic Wand is also ideal for "lazy" masturbation, or if you need a quickie orgasm, Just lay back, turn on the Magic Wand, put it in the right spot, and you’ll likely orgasm quicker than ever before.
A modern wand might be more powerful and offer more but the Hitatchi holds up very well.
Is It Worth The Money?
The original Magic Wand plugs into the wall, which might be annoying if you're used to cordless vibes, but that also guarantees it’ll never die on you mid-masturbation, Plus, its huge size (much bigger than most other vibrators) makes it really easy to grip and maneuver. The answer is YES!
And while the Magic Wand is a bonafide classic, it's always getting a face-lift. It's the same powerful, infamous motor underneath, but the Magic Wand has gone through several versions—some cordless! This year, the Magic Wand Plus became available. The newest version of the toy features a body-safe silicone head, a more flexible head, and updated control buttons. "The constant evolution of the Magic Wand solidifies it as a timeless sex toy," It will also last forever,
The drawbacks are the following... It is BIG and not travel friendly. It has to be attached to a eletrical socket with a cord.
The godmother of all wands is still a best seller world wide. It is being upgraded all the time and still make women orgasm. On the other hand we find that the Magic Wand plus is the better deal.
But if you are feeling retro, the original will still do the job. It is after all the Queen of all wands.
