we-vibe nova review

As I unboxed the We-Vibe Nova, I was not sure what to expect.

If you’ve read my previous We-Vibe reviews, you’ll understand why I was partially excited, and partially apprehensive upon receiving my We-Vibe Nova. Before I purchase a new toy, I always research it extensively first. What’s the sense in spending the money, only to get a crap product, and having to spend AGAIN for something that is more suitable? Alas, every damn We-Vibe review for every single product of theirs that I find is positive. I strongly disagree on many of the products. While the design is usually decent, the power of We-Vibe on my clit is generally nothing more than pathetic. Even the Wand by We-Vibe can’t stand up to the Magic Wand’s power.

I had also been warned of a big issue with rabbit vibrators, which is why it took me so long to try one. As you move it, the rabbit ears will not stay on your clit. I don’t know about you, but I need intense clit stimulation to get off. No matter how powerful that rabbit is, if it’s not staying on my clit, I’m not getting there.

In walks the We-Vibe Nova, the design of which is unlike any other rabbit vibrators, ultimately solving this very issue.

Special Rabbit Design

The We-Vibe Nova has a similar albeit very differing design to normal rabbit vibrators. While the normal “rabbit ears” part is usually firm, on the Nova this part is flexible. This means that as you’re moving the vibe in and out, the rabbit ears remain on your clit as the material flexes. I was shocked and incredibly impressed by this design. The whole reason I’d never tried a rabbit before was now a moot point. I popped the We-Vibe Nova on full power – as I always do with my toys (unless of course it’s my Magic Wand rechargeable, which is so amazing that full power is far too much power) – and went for it.

Unfortunately, my excitement with this new toy and its amazing design did not last long.

First Thoughts on the We-Vibe Nova

When I first popped the We-Vibe Nova on it was on the first speed rather than a pattern, as one would expect. I clicked through the back and forth buttons seeking the highest power, but instead found varying patterns. I quickly realized that there were buttons to go back and forth between patterns, and others to go up and down for intensity. As patterns don’t usually do it for me, I went back to the default.

And it was god damn pitiful. It was insanely bad. I could feel almost nothing. Fine, I thought. I’ll try out one of the patterns if this is going to be that shitty. Upon my next click, though, I realized there were actually two different modes that didn’t have patterns: one that had a high speed but next to no rumble, which is what I found at first, and another that is rumbly as all hell. I don’t know who on this earth would actually like the speedy option with next to no rumble, but hey, maybe someone does. Just not me.

So now the We-Vibe Nova had some proper rumbles behind it – good. I went back to enjoying my new toy, and for a while I was pretty shocked that it was actually turning me on. The We-Vibe Jive had left me wondering what the people at We-Vibe were smoking when they claimed this product was a g-spot vibe (whose g-spot is that thing hitting?) I tested out the We-Vibe Chorus previously as well, and wound up writing part of my review while wearing it. That is how little it turned me on.

So I was impressed by the We-Vibe Nova, at least to start.

Motor and Sound

One of the things that impressed me the most about the We-Vibe Nova was how insanely quiet it is. Even while not inside of you there’s no way someone in the next room will hear it, and once it’s in, you can barely hear it yourself.

On the rumble rather than pure speed setting, at top power, the We-Vibe Nova is about as rumbly as the We-Vibe Tango on medium to low rumble. This seems quite insane to me, as the Tango is a tiny bullet vibrator. How could they not pack the same – or more – punch into a bigger product? I just don’t get it.

Shape and Size

In terms of g-spot stimulation, the We-Vibe Nova definitely hits the spot. The thing is I don’t need nearly as intense of vibrations on my g-spot as I do on my clit,. So I was quite satisfied with the Nova on top rumble power, at least for g-spot stimulation. The rabbit arm that rubs on my clit, however, just would never get me off with that level of rumble.

I was left thinking as I attempted to masturbate that I should have bought the We-Vibe Rave – their g-spot vibrator – instead, so that I could use it in conjunction with my Magic Wand. I often do with my Neo Elite dildo and the Magic Wand for the perfect experience hitting all the right spots. Sometimes I even throw my VeDO Bump vibrating butt plug into the mix. The Rave could have stimulated my g-spot while the Magic Wand used its power to play with my clit. Alas, that is not the route I went, unfortunately.

On the other hand, if you don’t need as much clitoral stimulation as I do, the special flexible rabbit ear design is pretty freakin’ amazing seeing as it stays on your clit as you thrust, unlike other rabbit vibrators. You really can’t beat this if you’re looking for this style of vibe. The We-Vibe Nova has an insertable length of 4.25” with a girl of 4.25” at its largest point, so its pretty average in size.

Battery Life, Patterns, and App

The We-Vibe Nova has over ten patterns when connected to the We-Connect app. Of course, it also has patterns without the use of the app. But if you’re playing with a partner – far or near – he or she can control the vibrations. They can use pre-set patterns, invent their own, or even make the vibrations go to the sound of music. It’s pretty neat.

As I don’t love patterns on vibrators, the only pattern I was really a fan of was the one that went from intense rumbles slowly down to less powerful ones. The big issue with this setting, however, was that the rumbles slowed to nothing for a split second. That split second made a difference, causing the pattern to be lack luster to me.

The battery life of the We-Vibe Nova is pretty impressive, at two hours before it dies. That should keep you going for a while. It takes 90 minutes to recharge, so you should be good to go – just charge it between sessions.

Waterproof

Lastly, the We-Vibe Nova is completely waterproof, so you can have as much fun in the tub or shower as you want, as opposed to many vibes that are just water resistant. Personally, I’ve always found shower sex rather awkward. Now shower masturbation, or even shower video sex with someone across the world controlling the Nova, that sounds pretty wicked.

Final Thoughts

I have pretty mixed feelings about the We-Vibe Nova. If I use it right as I start masturbating, it definitely turns me on. After a little while, though, the vibrations on my clit just aren’t enough to push me over the edge, while the vibrations on my g-spot are amazing. I really wish this thing packed the punch of the Tango. It’s so wicked in its shape, size, and unique rabbit design, but really falls short in its motor. Alas, for some unknown reason, they could make the tiny bullet Tango more powerful than the larger Nova. One can only hope the We-Vibe Nova 2 makes an appearance one day and they fix this, as it’s really the only flaw of this rabbit vibrator. Check it out to buy here, or don’t.
