Rabbit vibrators bring us to the realm of creatures from Greek mythology. Some will have you face your worst fears and make you experience horrors. Some are like the Sirens — they will lure you with promises of unheard pleasures, only to expose you to great dangers. If this sounds exaggerated, let me remind you that most rabbit vibes are made of porous or toxic materials. Others like Medusa will turn you into stone — unable to feel anything from their buzzy vibrations, which will temporally paralyze your genitalia.
But once in a while there’s actually a rabbit vibe that is like Pegasus, the mythological winged stallion, which will let you ride on its back into a divine overtaking orgasm (or two, or three…). It will help you get there, instead of teasing you and taking orgasms away from you. We-Vibe Nova is my Pegasus among ancient beasts and monsters.
What’s the main problem with rabbits?
Dual stimulators, aka rabbit vibrators, as you already know from my review of Lelo Soraya, have one big problem — they have a fixed distance between the shaft and the external clitoral arm. Which means that sometimes the external vibrator won’t get anywhere near your clitoris. Other times it might fit okay, but the internal part will be too short or have the wrong angle to provide good internal stimulation.
Another problem is that you can’t really thrust in and out with rabbits, that is, if you want to keep feeling the vibration on the clitoris. Some vibrators, like the Fun Factory Miss Bi or Lady Bi feature a fairly flexible external arm, which kind of follows your movements, but doen’t provide enough pressure on the clitoris.
Enter We-Vibe Nova
But We-Vibe have fixed almost all of these problems. And not for some outrageous price of more than $200, but for the pretty decent $149 (though still hefty…). Nova is fully water-proof, silicone and rechargeable (and this time the magnetic charger is much better and stays in place, unlike the one of their previous toys We-Vibe Tango or Touch). Nova is an app controllable dual stimulator that comes in the usual gorgeous We-Vibe box and a white satin storage bag. It has an absolutely stunning g-spot curve on the shaft, and the external arm is flexible in a way that applies constant pressure on your clit, even if you thrust in and out. It comes with the same powerful and rumbly motors other We-Vibe products have (Tango, Rave and Touch) and it’s quiet enough for a vibe that has two motors and that kind of power. Ta-dah!
It has a relatively slim shaft measuring 4.25″ of insertable length and 1.25″ at the widest point (diameter). Importantly, the handle is long enough and is super comfortable to hold and thrust in and out. The controls of the vibe are intuitive are fairly easy to use. But I love using the We-Connect app for Nova since it gives me such precise control over the two separate motors. If you are into this kind of thing: a partner can control your vibrator from anywhere on the globe (as long as they have a smart phone and internet connection)! I have to say, I wouldn’t do that for anything in the world — why would I have someone control things for me, when I know best what works and what doesn’t? Call me a hard-core individualist but I don’t want anyone messing with my vibrators. Period. My clitoris has an opinion of its own and only I speak its language.
How does it perform?
If you like pressure on your clitoris, you are going to thank the sex gods every day for creating this toy. It’s hard to explain, but even though the arm is flexible enough to maintain contact with the clitoris the entire time, regardless of the depth of the penetration, it still applies a really good amount of pressure on the clit. But since that can be too much of direct clitoral stimulation for some folks, instead you can position the external vibrator at 2 o’clock or 10 o’clock. Let me explain. Most vulva-owners don’t like their clitoris stimulated directly on the glans, but rather a little bit on the left or a little bit on the right. If your clitoris is at 12 o’clock, most people would rather take 10 or 2 o’clock stimulation — both from a vibrator or rubbing it with fingers. We-Vibe Nova will let you do that, because the external part has enough drag, and once you position it on the left or on the right, you wouldn’t have to keep pressing or holding the external vibe in that position. That’s something that almost no other vibrator can do.
I can’t write this review without praising the glorious g-spot curve of this toy properly. It’s wide and bulbous enough to provide a simply delicious pressure right where you need it. Even if you don’t care much for internal vibrations, there are plenty of ways to enjoy dual stimulation from this toy. Turn the internal vibration off (but keep the clitoral on) and simply thrust in and out or shift the handle a little bit clockwise, then a little bit counterclockwise. This will do the tricks for your g-spot.
I hope that We-Vibe will release an internal vibrator with the shape of the shaft of We-Vibe Nova. Just the shaft would be wonderful, especially for people who don’t care for dual stimulators.
To be honest, the deep and rumbly We-Vibe vibrations feel so good that I often use it just as a clitoral vibe. I turn on the shaft vibration and just use it externally on the clit, no penetration.
The We-Connect App
Why have app control on a rabbit vibe? At first, I thought controlling the toy directly was more than enough. But, as I mentioned, the We-Connect allows you to control the two motors separately with such ease and precision that I would never back to using the controls on the toy. It’s worth mentioning that Nova comes with 10 vibration patterns, but since I am not a pattern girl, I’m going to leave that part of the Nova exploration to someone else. Another huge advantage of the We-Connect app is that, unlike the Je Joue app, it actually works with both Android and iOS and it’s even available in several languages.
Things to consider
In the end, a rabbit vibe is an item that is trying to do two things (internal and external vibrator), and by doing so it can compromise the performance of each of the functions. So, if you aren’t sure you actually want a rabbit vibe, you might not need one at this point. If you can afford it, I would go with We-Vibe Rave (for vaginal use) AND We-Vibe Tango or Touch (for clitoral use) instead. Or simply an affordable Tantus dildo AND We-Vibe Tango or Touch. After all, like wealth or fame, dual vibrators are one of these things that people think they want to have but rarely bring happiness or live up to expectations.
In a nutshell
With all this in mind, We-Vibe Nova is still one of the most genius creations in the sex toy industry over the last few years. It’s made by a company that constantly brings innovation to the table and only makes high-quality and well thought sex toys. Nova, like all We-Vibe toys, comes with a 1 year warranty.
