I read tons of good reviews on the We-Vibe Jive, so I went for it.
The We-Vibe Jive was my very first We-Vibe toy, yet not the first one I reviewed. Why is that? Well, because I used it a total of once until I started reviewing sex toys, and figured I should get the old thing out of storage and give it an honest review. After all, all the reviews I read before I bought it were just amazing. Big. Fat. Liars. And this is why I had only used it once in the two years I had it.
Seriously, the only toy I’ve liked so far from We-Vibe is the Tango. It’s freakin’ amazing, and the thing packs a god damn punch for a bullet vibrator. I usually can’t get off without my Magic Wand, so the fact that the We-Vibe Tango manages to do the trick is pretty impressive.
Alas, I cannot say the same for the We-Vibe Jive.
The True Details on the We-Vibe Jive
Size, Shape, and Materials
I don’t know in what world this is a g-spot vibrator. The usual ones have a curve, like my dual density dildo does. I can totally hit my g-spot with it. But the We-Vibe Jive is just this little bullet that is somehow supposed to hit everyone’s g-spot perfectly? Nah. It’s advertised as a wearable g-spot vibrator, and I mean, it is a wearable vibrator. It just doesn’t hit your g-spot while you’re at it. And I’d quite prefer a wearable clit vibrator to a wearable g-spot one, and there are tons of options out there if you want to go that route. Even the We-Vibe Nova would be a better option, as it hits the g-spot perfectly, though it is not wearable.
In any case, this piece of junk has an insertable length (the rest is just an antenna for the app) of 4.5″, with a girth of 4.25″ at its largest point. It’s made of body safe silicone. So, you know, I do have one nice thing to say about the We-Vibe Jive.
Motor and Vibrations
Normally I compare the motor of a vibrator at its top speed to a comparable level on the rechargeable Magic Wand (which has only four speeds, the bottom of which still being great). I have nothing to measure the We-Vibe Jive against, because it’s that pitiful. I do not know what We-Vibe was thinking when they came out with this thing. It has some patterns that also barely do anything. I mean, I guess if you want the sensation of an unmoving cock inside of you while you play with your clit, it’ll do the trick. But why? Why would you not want a proper, good g-spot vibrators? You can get a great one for the same price as this piece of junk!
It does connect to the We-Connect app with full functionality, unlike the new We-Vibe Chorus which lacks a couple of functions (like the feel the beat mode where the vibrator goes to the beat of your favourite tunes). I tested out the We-Vibe Jive with We-Connect and, I mean, it worked on every mode. I like the app and all the extra patterns and options it gives you, as well as that you can have a partner connect from anywhere in the world. But if the vibrator is shitty to begin with, what’s the god damn point? I dream of the day the Magic Wand develops a version that has an app. It’s my all time favourite toy, after all. (Yes, there is a wand by We-Vibe, but, as usual, it is a bit disappointing.)
I mean, I think you’ve gathered how I feel about the We-Vibe Jive by now. It’s fucking terrible. Don’t get it. Get something like Lelo’s Gigi 2 if you want a good g-spot vibrators, or vibrating panties if you want something wearable. But the We-Vibe Jive is a useless piece of junk.
We-Vibe is never going to send me free products.
