Okay, this is a first: a wand vibrator with a built-in pressure wave stimulator. Neato. Read on for my Sohimi Clitoris Stimulator and Wand review!
The Sohimi Clitoris Stimulator and Wand is unlike any other toy I’ve reviewed before.
Is it a wand?
Is it a pressure wave clitoral toy?
Well, it’s both!
At first glance, the Sohimi Clitoris Stimulator and Wand looks like an ordinary petite wand vibrator. The head is bulbous and features light bumps/ridges. The neck is thin and flexible (yet sturdy feeling). The body tapers inward for a comfortable grip and features 2 control buttons and a charging port. It’s bright pink and coated in silky soft silicone.
But then, at the tippy base, there’s a deep hole and — voila! A pressure wave stimulator for your clitoris.
WHAT IS PRESSURE WAVE TECHNOLOGY? Pressure wave technology provides touchless clitoral stimulation, which makes your clitoris feel like it’s being sucked by air. This sex tech first emerged around 2016, and since then I’ve witnessed (and reviewed) the technology spread across the industry. I was skeptical at first, and the technology is pretty bizarre, but it can be SUPER effective.
By placing a pressure wave stimulator at the tip of the base, the Sohimi Clitoris Stimulator and Wand is targeting two sections of the market, and it’s a clever idea.
This section is to help folks determine if they might have any issues using/accessing this toy.
- Size: The Sohimi Clitoris Stimulator and Wand is small for a wand (though large for a pressure wave toy). By my measurements, it’s about 22cm tall. The head is 4.5x6cm and the body is around 4cm wide. The hole of the pressure wave stimulator is 1cm wide.
- Buttons: The 2 control buttons are located on the handle. They are round, sit flush with the surface, and are engraved with (~) and (S) impressions that you can feel with your fingertips. The buttons are 1.3 cm across and 2mm apart. They don’t take much pressure to push down and make a nice loud click noise.
- Handle buzz: The pressure wave portion of this toy doesn’t create vibrations on the handle. However, if you’re using the vibrating function, many of those vibrations travel down the handle. If you have arthritis or carpal tunnel, this may affect you.
- Price: At $34.99 USD, this is inexpensive compared to other pressure wave stimulators or vibrators with similar features.
How to Use
- To turn on vibrations, press and hold the ~ button. It’ll turn on at its first vibration level.
- Keep pressing the ~ button to cycle through vibration modes. There are 3 steady states and 4 patterns.
- Apply to your body. Though designed for clitoral use, this could be used against other body parts (such as nipples or the shaft of a penis). Don’t use it anally, though, as it doesn’t have a flared base.
- To turn off vibrations, press and hold the ~ button again.
- To use pressure wave suction, press and hold the S button.
- Tap S to cycle through the 7 intensities.
- Apply to your body. I recommend tucking it right on top of your clitoris, then gently pressing it against you so it creates a suction seal.
- To turn the suction off, press and hold the S button again.
The Sohimi Clitoris Stimulator and Wand comes packaged in a plain white box.
Inside, you receive the wand, a manual, and a USB charging cord.
Material and Care
The Sohimi Clitoris Stimulator and Wand is waterproof, though Sohimi doesn’t specify if it’s fully waterproof (and can be submerged) or just splashproof. I’ve erred on the side of caution and avoided submerging it.
To clean, I rinse it in warm, soapy water before and after each use. After rinsing, to get the water out of the pressure wave chamber I find it helpful to turn it on and shake it gently. Wait for it to be dry before storing it away.
If you’d like to use lubricant with this toy, choose a good quality water-based lube like my favourite basic, paraben-free Sliquid H2O.
To recharge the Sohimi Clitoris Stimulator and Wand, use the included USB charging cable; attach the magnetic end against the two little metal dots on the side of the body Plug that cord into your computer or a USB wall adapter.
My Experience with the Sohimi Clitoris Stimulator and Wand
The Sohimi Clitoris Stimulator and Wand is inexpensive. At $34.99 USD, it’s in the really inexpensive category when it comes to sex toys with these kinds of features: it’s silicone (bodysafe!), waterproof, USB rechargeable, and offers two pleasure modes (vibration + suction).
Honestly, when toys are that inexpensive, I immediately become both skeptical yet hopeful. Just how good can it really be? Wouldn’t it be great if it was this cheap, plus amazingly good?
Well, let’s start with the bad news.
I wasn’t blown away by the suction. Sohimi’s pressure wave technology is gentle (if I’m being polite). In other words, it’s pretty weak. Even at the top level, it’s nowhere close to the kind of suction power you can get from the big name brands (like the Womanizer Liberty). It’s weaker than the ROMP Free, which is about the same price.
Using its suction end, I wasn’t able to orgasm (or even get close to), which was disappointing. The suction power is soft and buzzy. Not the strong pleasurable suction power I’ve grown accustomed to with this kind of technology.
On a more positive front, the wand function of the Sohimi Clitoris Stimulator and Wand is decent. The vibrations err on the buzzy side, but they’re surprisingly strong for the price. The wand head is nice and firm, and small enough to zoom in on the clitoris (while still having those wider, longer edges for broader stimulation). The motor is moderately noisy, but that’s okay considering that it delivers some decent strength.
I typically need moderate to moderately strong vibrations to orgasm, and I didn’t have any problem reaching orgasm with this wand. So hooray, Sohimi!
Sohimi Clitoris Stimulator and Wand Review – Overall Thoughts
The Sohimi Clitoris Stimulator and Wand didn’t impress me with its suction power — I found the suction to be dismally weak compared to similar suction toys in this price range.
Is this worth $34? Yes — because it redeemed itself with its wand strength. The wand’s motor is buzzy, yes, but has a lot of oomph to it. Coupled with that this toy is bodysafe silicone, USB rechargeable, and waterproof, I’d say this is still a good buy.
