Hitachi style wands are infamous. Everyone wants one, and wants a good one, and for good reason. So I understand wanting to invest in one that’s worth it’s merit. Out of all of the Hitachi style body wands I’ve owned, this one has worked its way into my favorites list.
The Shibari is completely covered in silicone, instead of having just the head of the toy covered like many wands. This made me a lot more comfortable with the idea of it being ‘water proof’. (Even being waterproof, I wouldn’t recommend full submersion. However partial submersion or use in a shower could definitely be in the plans for this toy without worry!)
The bottom of the toy has a small flap that you open to reveal the charging port. The first time opening it, it is a bit snug, but just be careful not to tear the cover off and it’s easy to open and close after that for future charging sessions. The charge on this wand is pretty decent, so far. It has been used in multiple play sessions and has yet to weaken or die completely. It does need a long initial charge when you first open it. It’s mentioned in the included papers that it comes with a partial charge, but mine didn’t. Not a big deal though, since you should charge it before first use anyway. Knowing when it’s done charging was super convenient because the panel lights up red while charging and turns blue when it’s fully charged.
The vibrations on this toy are STRONG. I can honestly say that this might be my strongest toy to date, and I loved every teeth-chattering moment! So if you need a vibe with more mellow vibes, this might now be the best choice for you. If you’re like me and need something strong to really get your engine going? You are set. The 15 different variations in pulse and vibration are wonderful and give enough variety that I’m pretty sure there is a combination for everyone. Since the panel only has 3 buttons, this toy is also very user friendly, so even newbies to the world of adult toys would have an easy time with it. It’s definitely for new users and veterans alike.
