We-Vibe 4 Review

~I received this item for free in exchange for an honest review.~

I’m always on the lookout for a toy that Husband and I can use together.  We have lots of vibes, but they often get in the way, are bulky, don’t have enough power, etc, etc.  When I learned about C-shaped vibes that are designed to be warn by a woman during penetrative sex, I snatched up the We-Vibe 3.  I reviewed it, and even wrote a follow-up review, but I was simply not impressed.  The vibrations were weak.  It didn’t stay in place during sex like it was supposed to.  It was a decent foreplay toy, but that’s about it.  After being so excited about it, I was crushed.

Now, don’t get me wrong.  I have the We-Vibe Touch and the Salsa* and love them both.  The We-Vibe 3, though…No.  Just no.

When I heard that the We-Vibe 4 was coming out, I wasn’t too excited.  Then I looked at the design.  I mean really looked.  That’s when I realized that most of the issues I had, like the sliding around during sex, may actually be fixed by the new design. [Spoiler: the problems were fixed by the new design.]

A little bit about it: Like it’s predecessor, the We-Vibe 4 is a couple’s vibrator designed to have one arm lay against the clitoris, and the other against the G-spot, and held in place by pressure.  It’s silicone, waterproof, rechargeable with a USB port, and comes with a remote.  If you don’t want to use the remote, or if you’re like me and constantly lose things, the vibe can also be operated with a button on the vibe itself.

What I loved: Let’s start with the silky smooth matte silicone.  It’s one of those toys that I carried around for a little while when I received it, because it felt so nice in my fingers.  My fingers just sort of glide over it, as opposed to glossy silicone, which has a lot of drag.

The redesigned shape holds onto my body.  The tension keeps it pretty well in place for the most part, with only an occasional readjustment.  This is a far cry from the We-Vibe 3, which I could not get to stay in place at all.  However, if we don’t use lubrication on either Husband or on the vaginal arm, the friction of sex bumps it out of place.  With a little lubrication, everything stays put, which if you think about it is kind of counter intuitive, but there it is.

None of this means anything if it doesn’t have decent vibrations, but it does.  It has several patterns and three speeds, the strongest of which is not quite as strong as the Salsa, but it’s a respectable low 4 out of 5 on the scale of vibration strength.  I should mention that this is as low as I can go with vibration strength and still find it pleasurable.

The thing I loved most about the We-Vibe 4 is that it’s hands-free, worry-free fun.  It’s not cumbersome, it doesn’t get in the way, and it works both for me, and for him.  The vaginal arm doesn’t get in his way, and he tells me the vibrations actually make it even better for him.  I like it, he likes it, and it’s a true win-win.

In short, everywhere the We-Vibe 3 failed me, the We-Vibe 4 was an amazing success.

What I didn’t: The vaginal arm that’s meant to stimulate the G-spot does nothing for me.  Nada.  To be fair, there is only one G-spot vibrator that actually did anything for me.  I’m way more interested in what the clitoral arm has going on.

The 4 is charged via USB port.  I hate, hate, hate USB chargers.  Some people just love them and find them convenient.  For me, it’s the other way around.  This has to do with where the computers in the house are kept.  It’s really hard to charge a sex toy via USB port away from prying eyes, even on my laptop.  A wall plug is much more convenient for me.

The only other complaint I have is that in cowgirl position, I accidentally grind the vibe against Husband’s pubic bone.  But honestly, that’s just the way we fit together and no fault of the toy.

Comparison to We-Vibe 3: I mentioned that the 4 fixed so many of the problems I had with 3.  I want to hit on a couple of those.  First off, even though they both come with remotes, I constantly lose small parts like that.  I put the remotes where they belong, but I knock the container over or move it while looking for something, and poof, they’re gone.  The remotes work, but I never have the darn things handy.  Thankfully, both of these vibes have a button on them so they can be operated without the remote (Thank you, We-Vibe!), but the button on the We-Vibe 3 is on the top of the clitoral arm.  It’s not in the best place, as far as access goes.  On the We-Vibe 4, it’s on the front of the clitoral arm.  So much better.

Final Thought: Even though I would prefer the We-Vibe 4 to be even a little stronger yet, the fact that it stays put, delivers rumbly vibrations where they need to be, and is hands-free makes it a nearly ideal toy for us.  It’s worth the nearly $160 price tag.  However, if you need something more than the higher end of moderate vibration strength to orgasm, but still want something small and out of the way, you’re better off looking at the We-Vibe Tango.

If you’d like a We-Vibe 4 or your own, you can find it on We-Vibe’s site.

*The Salsa is no longer sold.  The Tango is nearly the same as the Salsa, with a different shaped head.

We-Vibe 4 Review — 3 Comments

  1. I love wearing my 3 around as a panty vibe, so I’m super excited to get my 4! I haven’t tried to use the 3 with my partner, but it’s silicone is so draggy I can see it being problematic, so I’m super excited about them changing that in the 4.
    Great review!

  2. The 3 looks extremely draggy. As well as the 2 and 1. And they are bulky! Now the 4 is a different story! Looks so much better (though I wished it came in more color options). Good thing buttons are on the toy because I tend to lose my things a lot…
