The Femedic reviews: Doxy Die Cast wand massager

Doxy Die Cast wand massager - The Femedic Reviews

In something that can only be described as a sex writer’s dream, sex shop Fiylon got in touch and asked The Femedic to review any toy we liked from their online shop. I chose the Doxy Die Cast wand massager — for those who know, you know. For those who don’t, there’s a lot of hype around Doxy products and I wanted to see for myself if this toy lived up to it. Now, I can confidently say: yes, it is every bit as good as they say it is.

The Doxy Die Cast is the latest iteration of the original Doxy wand, launched in 2013 by British company Doxy. By their own admission, the Die Cast offers 20% more intensity than the original wand — achieved by adding heavier weights inside to give a deeper “throbbing” sensation. The new model also has a sleek metal body, uses a silicone rather than PVC head, and is 190g heavier.

The basic design and mechanism of the toy — clitoral and vulval stimulation via the vibrating head — are the same as its predecessor, but hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

The doing

I actually had to try out the Die Cast over two separate sessions that were a day or so apart, because the first time I used it on the highest vibration setting and came in a matter of seconds — my clit then became so oversensitive that the vibrations became uncomfortable. This has never happened to me before when using a sex toy, which is something I do both for fun and as part of my job.

The Doxy’s highest vibration setting is a sizzling 9,000 RPM, and if you haven’t experienced an intensity like this on your genitals before I recommend starting on the lowest setting, 3,000 RPM, and working upwards when you’re ready. Even at its weakest, the Die Cast’s vibrations are powerful, deep, and rumbly. During my second session, I came four times in less than 15 minutes on the lowest intensity setting.

Being able to stimulate the entire vulva, as well as the clit, is actually one of the best things about the Die Cast

If the vibrations are a bit much for you, you could try to use the toy over your underwear or to press the head somewhere on the vulva other than on the clit — I promise, you will still very much feel and enjoy it.

Being able to stimulate the entire vulva, as well as the clit, is actually one of the best things about the Die Cast. This gives a really nice sensation that you feel deeply across the whole area, that I’ve not experienced with any other toy I’ve used. I would say that this probably contributes to why orgasms come so easily.

Vibrations come in two modes: constant and pulse. There are three choices of vibration intensity on constant mode and three different pulse settings, where intensity escalates in waves at different speeds.

The context

While the Die Cast comes from the revered Doxy family of toys, the original Doxy wand was actually a response to the Magic Wand by Japanese company Hitachi, released in 1968. The Magic Wand was created to relieve tension and relax sore muscles, but the popularity of its off-label use as a sex toy quickly took off. The Hitachi Magic Wand famously featured in a 2001 Sex and the City episode.

Early models of the Magic Wand were discreet and marketed as massagers rather than sex toys, which some have noted is likely responsible for much of its early success. Plus, because neither the Magic Wand nor the Die Cast are phallic, they reject the idea that people with vulvas need a penis inside them to feel pleasure.

The important details

Everything about the Doxy Die Cast is big and loud: the head and body of the toy are around 33cm long (13 inches) while the head is around 7cm long and 6cm thick. It’s noisy, especially on the highest vibration intensity — my partner was in the room next door while I was using it and said that he could hear the vibrations through the wall.

The Doxy Die Cast is the best sex toy I have ever used. Orgasms came quickly and easily, with very little effort

Unlike the original Doxy, the toy’s head is covered with body-safe silicone, which is always nice. Use antibacterial hand soap with warm water to clean the head but be careful not to rinse it under a tap, because there’s a danger that splashes could get inside the unit. You can also use a sex toy cleaner; I use an antibacterial wipe before and after use. When using lube, be careful to only use water-based products and only on the head. You can also comfortably use the toy with a condom if you like.

Because the toy plugs into the mains it is not waterproof nor should it be used near water. If you’re someone who releases a lot of ejaculate, you could put a condom over the head and shaft to prevent any liquid from getting into the toy.

The verdict

The Doxy Die Cast is the best sex toy I have ever used. It has the strongest vibrations I’ve ever experienced from a toy — to the point where I had to gracefully bow out of my first session and return, refreshed, a day later for round two. Orgasms came quickly and easily, with very little effort: all you need to do is position the toy against your vulva and wait for your orgasms to be delivered.

There are no gimmicks whatsoever with this toy. It has a powerful, vibrating head that fits over your vulva, with a limited number of settings. It does what it says on the tin so perfectly that nothing more is needed.

Among those that like clitoral stimulation, this toy should be a staple — if not the crown jewel — in your sex toy drawer.
 
The Doxy Die Cast is available for purchase on the Fiylon website
