Ooo, what’s that?

You’ve read my review of the We-Vibe Touch. It’s good stuff. The toy, not the review. I mean, the review, too, if I do say so myself, but that’s rude so let’s just pretend I didn’t say so myself. Or something.

ANYway…the other toy in the pic is the We-Vibe Thrill. I was kinda worried about trying it at first, because a few reviewers have had issues with it. But as is usually the case, I was reminded that vaginas are each their own lady, and finicky to boot. And my vagina gives the Thrill a very enthusiastic clit up.

What’d it come in?

I really like the box for this thing. It’s a sturdy, elegant cardboard box the same color as the toy, sectioned out by more cardboard to keep things nicely organized. There’s a foam insert to keep the Thrill from flopping around inside, and a decorative sleeve to hold the whole thing closed. The toy is on the decorative sleeve, but you can toss that in the recycle bin, and no one will know what’s inside without looking. Unless they have their own Thrill at home. Or, you know, read the very prominent “We-Vibe” on the top of the box. That might give it away.

How’s it made?

This toy is mostly made up of silicone. For whatever reason, We-Vibe decided to go with plastic on the part you rub against your clit. It recharges in 90 minutes through magnets and a USB port, so you can plug it into your computer or your phone’s wall adapter. I momentarily geeked out over being able to plug it into my iPad charger.

That also means that if you take this charger with you when you travel abroad, you don’t have to worry about getting an adapter to charge your sex toy. That saves you precious outlet space (and a few extra dollars, which is always good), which is always an issue in this household.

Only not so much since we moved into this house. It’s like the landlord—who took this place down to the studs from an old soda fountain shop—asked himself, “where would I want an outlet if I lived here?” and then just went hog-wild. There’s at least one outlet on every wall.

That loopy thing? Yeah, that’s a handle. Which you’d think would make it easier for your partner to help you manipulate it, but I’m told it really doesn’t.

Check out these vibration variables:

ThrillVibes

There’s 8 and they’re controlled by the button between the charging posts on the handle side of the toy.

What’s it for?

From the box. Thrill's use seems pretty clear to me!

How is it?

Rayne’s Rating:
Pros: Cons:
rapid recharge
mostly silicone
“thumb” has ridges
handle makes rocking easier than other
toys with similar designs
waterproof
strong
quiet
plastic clit stimulator
a little awkward to insert

I’ve tried quite a few toys designed similarly to the Thrill with pretty shitty results. It’s part of the reason I hadn’t tried the We-Vibe (1, 2, 3, or now the 4) yet, and why I was cautious about trying the Thrill. I’ve tried the Snagglepuss, the Rock Chick, and LELO’s Tiani (1 & 2), and I have the same two problems with all of them. They don’t provide enough pressure on their own, and if I get too wet, they just slide right out…even while in use with a parnter.

I do not have either of those issues with the Thrill. Once I was able to get it in, it stayed put.

I will say it is a little awkward to get in at first. Took a bit of practice, and I still can’t get it in on the first try. I think it’s a combination of how tight the curve is, and the angle of my vagina. But I love how tight the curve is, and, obviously, I can’t change the angle of my vagina, so, though I listed it as a con, it’s more a word of caution than a “problem”.

The plastic clit stimulator is a little weird, and I’d love to hear We-Vibe’s logic for this choice. Vibrations travel differently through different materials. Vibrations through plastic tend to be a little rougher, for lack of a better description, while vibrations through silicone are a little softer and more diffuse. So the “thumb” and clit stimulator feel very different. Oddly enough, the vibrations in the thumb are much stronger, which is a good thing for me because my g-spot needs stronger vibrations than my clitoris, but doesn’t work out so well for others.

I’ve read a couple reviews saying that the thing is awkward for someone who doesn’t have a vagina and/or can’t feel what’s going on inside when they’re moving it. We haven’t tried this as a couple, yet, but the box does say “Solo: For Her,” so it wasn’t really even a consideration. I mean, beyond using it during a mutual masturbation session, or something.

I’ve also heard that it warms up during use. I haven’t experienced this. My Touch did warm up quite a bit when I charged it that one time, but I think the charge pegs weren’t dry enough to charge it yet. I guess I’m lucky no one got hurt. I haven’t had that issue since, or with the Thrill.

Overall, I really love this toy. It’s easy to use. It won’t wake the neighbors. It gets me off every time I use it. And it’s really nice to have something that’s really just for me. In our relationship, pretty much everything’s about M, and I’d have it no other way, but occasionally, a girl needs something of her very own. Leave it to me to make that something a sex toy.

Anything else I should know?

You can probably safely use this toy anally because of the way it’s shaped, but use caution.

Use waterbased lube. If you must use silicone, spot test on the non-insertable side of the toy first.

Do not submerge this toy in boiling water or send it through the dishwasher. Wash it with non-abrasive antibacterial soap and water. Let it dry completely before charging it. Store it in the box, or the bag that’s included. Don’t worry about tossing it in with your other silicone.

Where’d ya get it?

We-vibe sent us the Thrill free of charge in exchange for an honest review. As the company’s name suggests, We-Vibe began making toys to offer couples something that was body safe and usable during penis-in-vagina intercourse. Their products have won multiple awards since, including the Touch finding its way into my Ecstasy Bag (which needs updating).

    Hmm. I remember reading 2 reviews that slaughtered this thing, so I’ve been avoiding it. Are the vibrations as powerful as the Salsa/Tango &/or Touch? I think they’re all supposed to have the same motor.

    @ Camryn I’m not really all that difficult to get off when it comes to vibrators. I think because I use them so infrequently. So some of the stuff that other people hate works out for me. Plus, there’s always the potential for glitches, and different vaginas like different things.

    I was talking to Lilly on Twit the other day, and she said the vibrations are weaker on the plastic part of her Thrill than on the g-spot “thumb”. They might be a little weaker in mine, but mostly they just feel different. With plastic, the vibrations tend to go into the surrounding area instead of where you’re actually touching with the plastic. It’s why I’d be interested in hearing why We-Vibe chose to go that way.

    ANYway, if you put a gun to my head and asked me to choose between the Thrill and the Touch, I’d go with the Touch all the way. But so far, the Thrill is the best dual stimulator I’ve tried in ages.

    @ Rayne Millaray I see. That makes sense. I think the plastic was so you’d be able to apply pressure or something. In any case it looks nifty, but I think I’ll stick with We-Vibe’s other offerings. I’m glad you like it though, and yes, tell us about the updated bag!

    Wondering if you have tried this as a couple yet. i didnt realize when I purchased it that it was for solo use. i just assumed that because We-Vibe made it that it was a couples toy. good thing i got it on dealfind for 39 bucks at least to make that mistake. i guess i can try it to find out but my partner isn’t here and i just got the toy today. any info would be great thanks

    @ Sam I’m not sure how it would work with a partner other than allowing them to use it on you. While you can do this, it’s a little awkward and does have a learning curve. Patience and lots of communication are necessary. But that’s true with all things.

    We haven’t actually tried it this way, so if you do, let me know how it goes! 🙂
