Welcome to the first post in the Wand Queen series! In 2015, after experimenting with lots of toys in my first few months as a reviewer, I figured out what really works for me: broad stimulation, particularly wands. So now, in 2016, I’ll be reviewing at least one wand a month from this point forward! I’m excited to share my thoughts with you all on my favorite kind of sex toy.
I’ll be honest, I first bought the Jimmyjane Iconic Wand because of its aesthetic appeal. It’s rechargeable, relatively small compared to other powerhouse toys, and waterproof, so I thought it couldn’t pack a huge punch like other more well-known, corded wands. However, it sports a gorgeous design and I had been wanting to add to my wand collection, so I thought I would give it a try. You could have probably knocked me over with a feather if you had told me that I would soon be calling the Iconic Wand my new favorite toy… but here we are. Consider me knocked over.
It took me a while to admit, even to myself, that the Iconic Wand is my favorite toy. I really like my powerhouse wands like the Magic Wand and the Doxy, but I don’t love them the way I do my Iconic Wand. It’s possible the Magic Wand or the Doxy could dethrone the Iconic Wand once I spend more time masturbating with them (both are fairly new purchases), but the fact remains that whenever I use the Magic Wand or the Doxy and just can’t reach orgasm, I grab my handy Iconic Wand and get there almost immediately. (As a quick note, it’s probably easiest to compare the Iconic Wand to the Magic Wand and the Doxy, as they are well-known to a number of people, and I’ll continue to do so throughout this post.)
So, why exactly is the Iconic Wand my new favorite? Its vibrations are powerful, deep, and rumbly, and granted, not as strong as other wands, but still incredibly strong for a smaller, rechargeable toy. It has three speeds, three patterns, and one escalation mode. I’m usually not huge on patterns, but I find the patterns on this toy really great for edging. Furthermore, the Iconic Wand is fairly small compared to other wands. It’s waterproof and rechargeable, and has a truly astounding charge life. I’ve had this wand for over two months, I use it in almost all of my masturbation sessions (around three to four times a week, sometimes more, and always for more than 10-15 minutes each time) and I’ve only had to charge it once. Yes, really.
All of these fantastic features aside, what really attracts me to the Iconic Wand is its rounded head. Combined with this wand’s strong and rumbly vibrations, its head delivers broad stimulation in a way I really adore and much prefer to any wand I’ve tried before. Pinpoint stimulation is very uncomfortable for me, so I don’t need, or even like, the kind of stimulation that comes with angling the flatter heads of the Magic Wand or the Doxy. However, not all bodies are made the same, so if the potential for pinpoint stimulation is something you look for in a wand, check out Girly Juice’s review of the Iconic Wand for a different take.
The Iconic Wand’s rounded head also taught me something very important about my masturbation style, and especially my orgasms. Prior to using the Iconic Wand, whenever I would orgasm, I immediately removed the vibrator from my vulva entirely because it got painful very quickly. However, I always felt like my orgasms didn’t live up to their full potential – it always seemed like there was more orgasm to be had, I just couldn’t get to it because it was too uncomfortable. One day while masturbating with the Iconic Wand, I absentmindedly placed it lightly on top of my outer labia right after orgasm… and the orgasm kept on going. And going. And going. I was completely spent at the end of it. I felt more relaxed than I ever had after an orgasm.
My clit is buried and not at all exposed, so I was easily able to place the wand on my outer labia without feeling any pain. This extended orgasm happens with other wands, but it’s always more pleasurable with the Iconic Wand. The flatter heads of other wands are too bulky to nestle comfortably between my legs and on top of my outer labia, and one of my other top wand choices, the PalmPower, is too small to provide that broad stimulation I need even as my orgasm continues. I always love it when a sex toy teaches me something completely new about my pleasure, and the Iconic Wand definitely delivered in that department!
While I do love the Iconic Wand, that doesn’t mean it’s a perfect toy. The Iconic Wand is slightly more expensive than the Magic Wand Rechargeable, about the same price as the Doxy, and much more expensive than the Magic Wand Original. Yes, the Iconic Wand is rechargeable, which only the MWR can boast, and waterproof, which makes it unique, but it’s simply not as powerful as the Magic Wand or the Doxy, which its price tag does not reflect. My other major complaint about the Iconic Wand is that its vibrations rattle the handle, and hard. My hand gets massaged almost as intensely as my vulva whenever I use it.
It should be obvious by now that I think the Iconic Wand is a wonderful toy. I would recommend it to those who like wands, strong, rumbly vibrations, and rechargeable toys, as well as people who may not know what they’re looking for but want to try to a toy with a lot of good features.
