It's not every day that you get to review or comment on a sexual aid meant to enhance a couple's bedroom repertoire, but an Ottawa, Canada company contacted me, hoping to be included in my ongoing quest for awesome products that fall in the Made in the USA / small business category that I love to investigate.
Well, Canada is attached to the USA, so they count too!
The We-Vibe II is a quiet (a quality very important to many women) 100% medical grade silicone flexible device that women can use alone or with their partner for enhanced bow-chicka-bow-wow times.
The thicker end of the purple "U" shaped device has a bit of a bump that is the on/off switch, and there is a dimple where the recharger plugs in.
Yes, a plug-in recharger! No batteries! Can you say no heavy metals or nasty toxic trash? Love that feature.
It is water-resistant, requires no hands, is extremely flexible and easy to wear and quite comfortable; it also contains two ultra powerful motors.
There are nine "speeds" that are obtained by pressing that on/off tiny button, low, high, throb, wave, pulse, ramp, tease, ascend and cha-cha. The We-Vibe is astonishingly powerful for such a small, hand-held item. And did I mention quiet?
We-Vibe II weighs 2 oz, has a heavy-metal free rechargeable battery and comes with a beautiful lilac satin pouch for stashing. This product is super eco-friendly, and the company is a carbon neutral manufacturer which uses water based pigments and recyclable materials.
This eco-friendly and QUIET toy was created by a Canadian couple, husband and wife team Bruce (an ex Nortel engineer) and Melody Murison. It was the world’s first dual clitoral and g-spot stimulation vibrator that could be worn while making love. We-Vibe II is winning awards and notice from Oprah Winfrey, Cosmo magazine and "Top Toy of the Year" by Sue Johanson of the smallscreen series, "Talk Sex with Sue" to the "Most Innovative Product of the Year" - awarded by the International Venus show in Berlin, Germany 2008.
We-Vibe II has legs too. It has a charge life of 2 hours (non-stop) or standby for up to 60 days.
We-Vibe II makes a fabulous gift for everyone except the Church lady and an Iranian Mullah. Seriously, you ultra-values voter conservatives, even FOX News says this is good for you.
