I excitedly unboxed my new We-Vibe Melt; this was going to be something special.
The We-Vibe Melt was to be a fantastic addition to my sex toy collection, or so I thought.
No matter what I try, it’s always difficult for me to get off. Preferring clitoral stimulation over penetration for the most part, I’m always looking for new toys to make it easier to get off both solo and with a partner. Now, I have my old trusty Magic Wand which never fails me. But other than doggystyle or spooning, it really gets in the way of sex (or is just completely impossible during sex). That’s what led me to the We-Vibe Tango, a powerful bullet vibrator that is tiny and works in pretty much any sex position. He can hold it, I can hold it, it’s amazing. Plus, it’s way quieter than the Magic Wand.
That being said, I was still intrigued by the new so-called “pleasure air stimulators” as the We-Vibe website calls them. You may know of the Womanizer brand, who are the most well known for this type of product. As I need an intense amount of sensation on my clit to get off, I researched the best sex toy of this type. This was no ordinary vibrator – nor was it a vibrator at all. This was a whole new ball game.
After extensive research, I found that the We-Vibe Melt was supposedly stronger at its top level than most Womanizer products. I’d just gotten my We-Vibe Tango a few months prior, so I was pretty stoked. Alas, We-Vibe products go both ways for me.
What is a “pleasure air stimulator”?
As the We-Vibe website describes it, Pleasure Air technology massages the clitoris by using small changes in air pressure. The We-Vibe Melt uses gentle suction and pulsating waves around the clit, rather than vibrations. Depending on the level, this can feel like a gentle sucking, pulsating, or throbbing. I was intrigued, to say the least.
I was told I may or may not like this so-called Pleasure Air technology. Some women absolutely adored it; some hated it. A good friend had just purchased a Womanizer and proclaimed it was absolutely out of this world – she had never orgasmed so fast! Instead of purchasing a cheap one-time use Womanizer product so that I could see if I even liked this sensation, I went straight for the We-Vibe Melt. I had faith in We-Vibe.
Designed for Couples
The We-Vibe Melt is supposedly designed for couples. I don’t really know why they describe it as such; it’s as much for couples as any bullet vibrator is. I mean, it fits well in the palm of your hand, and has more of a grippy material (body-safe silicone) than the We-Vibe Tango or other similar bullet vibes. So I suppose it’s a couples toy in that you can hold it easily and it doesn’t really get terribly in the way during sex.
Like most of We-Vibe’s products, the We-Vibe Melt hooks up to the We-Connect App. The app has everything from set patterns to a feature that makes your vibe (or pleasure air stimulator, whatever it is) go to the beat of your favourite song. It’s pretty neat. Plus, you can invite a partner anywhere in the world to control your app. Whether you’re in a long distance relationship, looking to play with an old fling across the world, or even camming for a bit of extra cash, this is absolutely awesome. Plus, you can do way more patterns while using the app.
This thing is QUIET. I mean, it’s not quiet when you turn it on at high speed until it’s around your clit. Once that thing is around your sweet spot it becomes quiet as can be. I’m always paranoid my roommate is going to hear me masturbating (I’m not sure why I care, seeing as he has heard me have sex AND reviews sex toys as well). With this thing, there is no chance.
It’s also incredibly powerful. It’s hard to compare it to anything else I’ve tried since it’s not your typical vibrator. Still, I would compare the top speed to the We-Vibe Tango’s top speed, just in a very different way. Again, the We-Vibe Melt is not vibrating, it is pulsating air and gently sucking. So it’s a whole different ballgame.
I really wasn’t skeptical when I pulled this bad boy out of the box. I was just certain I was about to have the fastest and best orgasm of my life. From what everyone had said, the We-Vibe Melt was going to be incredible. Unlike any other We-Vibe vibrator, or any vibrator for that matter, this was going to be a whole new experience.
At first it was a bit difficult to figure out where to position the We-Vibe Melt. I mean, I know where my clit is, but I wasn’t used to positioning a small hole over it to perfectly encompass it. With a vibrator I don’t have to look at what I’m doing to get it in the right spot, but I sort of had to fiddle around with the We-Vibe Melt. I was glad I didn’t try it for the first time with a partner.
I started on a low speed, and it felt quite incredible. Alas, it takes a great deal of stimulation to get me off. I purchased the We-Vibe Melt over a Womanizer product for a reason: the motor. It was supposed to be one of the strongest at top speed, so I had to test it out.
Again, it felt incredible.
Until it didn’t.
When using the thing at top speed, or even near it, I got incredibly close to orgasm way faster than I would with my vibrator. But then it just became too much intensity. I would get close, and then cringe at how much sensation was going on down there. It was simply too much. So I would turn down the We-Vibe Melt, but at a low speed it no longer did anything for me. I turned it back up – too intense. Back down – too little.
Eventually I gave up and grabbed old trusty – my Magic Wand. I thought I’d get off super fast with it being that I had already built myself up so much.
The We-Vibe Melt had given me so much stimulation on my clit that, just like the top level on the Melt, the Magic Wand felt like just too much on my clit.
So I didn’t get off at all.
It’s really hard to say whether or not someone will like the We-Vibe Melt. It’s a quality made product, and if you like air pulsation style toys then it’s definitely a great one which I would highly recommend. That being said, if I could do it over, I would have tried one of the cheap non rechargeable Womanizer products first to see if I even liked this style of sex toy. Because I really didn’t like the We-Vibe Melt after all.
