My big sex toy confession is that I (sex educator, sex speaker, sex coach) never used a Hitachi Magic Wand. What the what? How can that be? Aren't they supposed to be super fabulous? And for the love of god, why?
Here's the deal--I never used the Hitachi Magic Wand (HMW) for a variety of reasons. One is that I never found it to be erotic looking or even appealing. It is big, plugs into the wall, and is loud as fuck.
I think the first Hitachi Magic Wand I ever saw was when I was snooping (note: I am no longer someone who snoops) around the bedroom of my tennis coach and found one. Let me try to explain this unusual situation. I got really into playing tennis when I was about 12 years old. I took lessons when I lived on the North Shore of Chicago, but my primary coach lived in Florida because my family owned a house on Sanibel Island. I would practically spend all summer in Florida playing tennis everyday until I was about 15 years old. What usually happened is that I would fly out before my family and stay with my female tennis coach. My tennis coaches BFF was a woman, also a tennis coach and going through a rough divorce so they were temporarily living together. They seemed more than happy to host me for how ever long I stayed with them before my mom came out and I would stay with her at our house. Since she lived in a 1 bedroom condo, both of my coaches slept in the bed and I got the couch. I'm not exactly sure what type of financial arrangement was made, but I know my dad would always send a big check to them at the end of every summer which I think covered my private and group tennis lessons, any tennis tournament fees, and some money for letting me stay with them.
I was too young to drive, but at age 12, I looked about 18 and at age 15, I looked about 21. Sometimes we would go out to comedy clubs and night clubs to go dancing and I never, ever got carded. On more than a few occasions, my coaches would meet men and (I think) hook up with them when I wasn't around.
I am a reformed snooper and this is one of the reasons why--I found their Hitachi Magic Wand (HMW) under the bed they were sharing along with a note detailing their sexual relationship. At 12 years old, I was probably too young to really understand what was going on but I knew this much: 1) They were absolutely NOT open to telling me about their sexual relationship, 2) I found out that one of my coaches could never orgasm during their lesbian sexual activity, 3) I was somewhat scarred from that particular event, and 4) I had no idea how the hell the Hitachi Magic Wand worked (but I knew it was a sex toy).
The next time I came face to face with a Hitachi Magic Wand was when I became a sex educator. For the first time I learned why people loved them so much! Still, I was never interested in it because, let's face it, it is not an attractive sex toy. Maybe I felt that if it were more visually pleasing, I would change my mind.
My next experience with a Hitachi Magic Wand came when I was at a posh spa outside of Palm Springs. They used the HMW on my stomach when I was getting my daily colonics, and yes, that is all I'm going to say on that particular topic.
The point I'm trying to make here is that my personal history with the HMW was pretty complicated and non-erotic.
I became a Hitachi Magic Wand convert about 6 months ago. Actually, the toy I purchased is branded under the Brookstone Store, has 4 vibration levels, and is more streamlined. I totally see why it's such a popular toy! I can easily bang out 3 orgasms in less than 10 minutes. It is the only toy I've used (besides my fingers) that can make me multi-orgasmic. Once I have the first orgasm, I can let the HMW linger on my ladyparts on the lowest setting until I can feel another orgasmic wave take over me. I've never been someone who thought "Hey, I wonder how quickly this toy can make me orgasm?!" before. This toy challenges that. And for the record, I haven't timed myself yet.
I haven't named my HMW yet, and I'm not sure if I ever will. However, I can now enthusiastically recommend purchasing one!
