We-Vibe Moxie – Sex Toy Review
Did you know that there is such a thing as National OOTD? You didn’t?! Just kidding… I’m not that shocked… I didn’t know that either… in fact, I didn’t even know what OOTD was… other than vaguely remembering seeing it as a hashtag on Instagram. So of course I had to ask my trusty google and it says that OOTD stands for Outfit of the Day. And it turns out National OOTD is on June 30th. Why is any of this relevant to today’s sex toy review? Well… it’s not really… I mean… kind of… but not really… but yes… sort of. I see you rolling your eyes at me… let me explain. So, when I happened to learn that there was such a thing as National Outfit of the Day happened to be the same day I just happened to be testing out the We-Vibe Moxie… a wearable vibrator for your underoos. Do you see where I’m going with this yet? So, there I am, sitting at my desk with my Moxie clipped to my underpants reading about National Outfit of the Day and it hit me… my #OOTD was a pair of Minion’s themed underpants, a ratty old Blockbuster t-shirt, and the We-Vibe Moxie… now if that’s not #fashion, #livingmybestlife, #blessed… I don’t know what is. I honestly contemplated trying to take some photos for Instagram to tag for National Outfit of the Day… but pure laziness got the better of me… so I didn’t. And now here we are, many days after the fact… finally now writing about National OOTD and the We-Vibe Moxie. As my old kindergarten teacher used to say… “You get what you get and you don’t throw a fit.” Be happy you are getting a review at all this week… I’m frickin’ exhausted from my drive to Colorado and back! I could have used the We-Vibe Moxie on my road trip… now there’s a way to pass the time in the car…
Okay, I feel like this train has really jumped the track here… time to reign this madness in. I’M TIRED AND WORDS ARE HARD!
When I think about wearable “panty” vibes my mind instantly conjures up images of this terrible butterfly shaped jelly material wearable vibrator I bought as a newly minted “adult” (I put adult in quotes…because I still don’t feel like an adult… I just look like one). I bought it from some shady online dealer because I was too frighted to go to a store to buy anything and I had no idea that quality sex toy vendors actually existed on the internet. That toy was awful. It made my inner thighs burn after wearing it for 20 minutes… but I kept using it… because I figured the burning sensation was somehow my fault. The vibration was weak… weak as fuck…but I kept wearing it… again… assuming that it was my fault the vibrator wasn’t doing anything for me. I suffered through that terrible toxic butterfly for months before I finally gave up and assumed I was broken and sex toys just weren’t going to work for me. Guess what… none of that was my fault… turns out it was just a really shitty vibrator. Thankfully, the We-Vibe Moxie is not a shitty vibrator (and with it coming from We-Vibe… I really didn’t think it would be shitty… We-Vibe hasn’t really disappointed me yet) and it will not make your inner thighs burn… and has the potential to give you orgasms (I won’t guarantee that it will… because we are all different… but I think it has a far better chance of it than that toxic butterfly of mine).
The way the Moxie is worn is kind of neat (at least I think so). I don’t have a ton of experience with wearable vibes, but those that I have tried fashioned in weird and uncomfortable ways. Take that toxic butterfly for example, it was worn like a pair of terrible underpants… it had elastic straps that you stepped in to, but they couldn’t be tightened, so it kind of hung like saggy underwear… not sexy. Another wearable vibe I tried had no means of keeping it in place… you just popped it into your underthings and prayed it didn’t work its way out and slither down you pant leg while you were out walking. So, compared to my previous wearable experience… the Moxie is a goddamn innovation! The We-Vibe Moxie affixes itself via a pretty powerful magnet. You place the vibrating half of the moxie in your desired undergarment then take the little oval magnet half and let it snap against the Moxie from the outside of your underwear. I feel like I explained that very awkwardly… did it make sense? Half of the toy is inside your undies the other half is on the outside… that way it can’t slip, slide, slither down your pant leg, or move outta place… it stays where you tell it to stay. Great staying power is definitely one of the big reasons I like the We-Vibe Moxie… my clit is very particular… and when I find my “hot spot” I don’t like to move the vibrator from it… I’m a set it and forget it kind of person (with some exceptions)… so I like that I can find that spot with the Moxie and then lock it down with the magnet and it pretty much stays put (I say pretty much… because I did a lot of vigorous scootching and rocking and rolling and did everything in my power to dislodge the magnet… I did manage to make it move… but I also looked ridiculous and I don’t think anyone is using a wearable vibe in that way…). So I guess the moral of this story is that the We-Vibe Moxie will stay put, unless you are participating in some wild gymnastics.
The Moxie isn’t as powerful as I was hoping for. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still got plenty of oomph… and it has that rumble that I’ve come to expect from a We-Vibe toy… but I guess I was hoping for something more like the Tango. Something with some real power behind it. But the Moxie is pleasant enough. It seems like it would be especially suited for someone who prefers their vibrations in a more mid to maybe on the lower end of powerful range, Does that even make sense? What I’m trying to say is that its powerful enough… but its not knock my socks off powerful… if you are familiar with the We-Vibe Tango, I would say that the Moxie is a step below that in power. When the Moxie is placed in my underoos, the raised tip sits right against my clit while the wavy textured end teases the opening to my vagina. Although… now that I think about it… you could also reverse that and let the wavy textured part sit on your clit… now I don’t know which way is supposed to be correct… I guess I liked the raised bump part… cause it nestled up closer to my clit than I think the wavy part would… so I’m going to guess that that’s the correct way to wear it… maybe? Probably? I don’t care how you wear it… you do you, sunshine!
The Moxie can be operated via the toy itself or using the included wireless remote. On the body of the Moxie, just under where the magnetic plate sits, is a raised bump, that is the toys on/off button as well as how you move through the Moxie’s various modes. As far as I’m concerned, the only reason I would use the button on the body of the toys is because a) I know exactly which setting I am going to use and I have absolutely no plans on changing it or cycling through any of the other modes or b) I’ve lost the remote. The wireless remote is super handy if you don’t want to be reaching into your pants every time you want to change the setting (which could get super awkward in public) or if you want to turn your wearable vibrator into a partner toy. To get someone else involved, just hand over your remote to a lover, friend, or stranger on a bus (just kidding… don’t do that last one… unless you ask them first… and they are into it…) and let them control the settings… or turn it off and on at random… go out and run errands with your partner and you never know when the vibration will hit. Cruising down the produce aisle at Whole Foods and BAM its orgasm time… shopping for shoes at Foot Locker… guess what… orgasm… stopping at Target for toilet paper… you’ve guessed it… IT’S ORGASM TIME! I ended up taking it with me to the movie theater (where I watched Annabelle Comes Home… it was great…I like horror…but horror that isn’t too scary) and giving the remote to my Stunt Cock. It was a great way to fulfill that having sex in the movie theater fantasy…without being those people… the ones having noticeable sex in the move theater… and you know perfectly well that is what they are doing… but they think they are being soooo sneaky… so you just keep your head down in the popcorn and pretend you don’t notice (the 21+ seating at my theater seems to attract a lot of this). You can also use the remote to go out and play in public by yourself… but it looses the element of surprise… but the orgasms are just as good. Also, the Moxie is also waterproof… so take it to the shower or bathtub… or have a really rockin’ pool party.
Okay, so to operate the toy via the shaft button, give the button a press and it will spring to life (unless you have forgotten to charge it… like me and you press and hold the button for like 30 seconds wondering when it will turn on…). Continuing to press the button will cycle through the Moxie’s pre-programmed modes (if you don’t like what its got, check out the app, you can make up your own patterns). There are 10 settings in all, with a mix of constant speeds and patterns. The patterns with the Moxie actually aren’t all that bad… normally I hate patterns because I don’t like those pauses and gaps between vibrations… my clit is impatient and if it stops getting attention for just a fraction of a second it throws a tantrum and says “FINE, I DIDN’T WANT TO ORGASM ANYWAY” and I feel like I have to start all over again. The We-Vibe Moxie has patterns that change intensity without leaving those annoying little gaps… it has a great one that kind of starts at the bottom then climbs up in intensity… I really enjoy that one.
To operate via the remote just turn the Moxie on and then click the arrow buttons on the remote. The remote is neat, as it seems to give you even more options… so its got those 10 settings… but it seems with the remote you are able to take the pattern settings up or down in intensity using the arrow buttons. It took me quite a bit of playing around with to get a good sense of what was going on, but as far as I can tell the the up and down arrows control the intensity and the left and right buttons cycle through the modes. I held the remote with the gray silicone button pad facing away from me… I suppose if you hold it different, up and down will be different for you. But you’ll figure it out… I have faith in you.
Another neat possibility with the Moxie is allowing someone control it via the We-Vibe We-Connect app. This makes it ideal for anyone in a long distance relationship, or if your partner is traveling, or for any cam performers looking to add something else to their shows. It is also a great backup method if you lose your remote or forgot to pack it with you on an outing. It is also a little less obvious for public outings, people are used to other people having cell phones in hand… a tiny remote with clicky sounding buttons might draw more attention, depending on your situation. I haven’t done a whole lot of digging into how the app works with the Moxie, but I am going to assume the app works pretty much the same way it does with the other app compatible We-Vibe toys and I’ve explored using the app with the We-Vibe Gala, the We-Vibe Nova, and the We-Vibe Wish and it worked perfectly well with all three of those toys… so I’m assuming its just as functional with the Moxie. I’ve been kind of on the fence about app controlled toys, but I do think its kind of a neat addition… so long as the toy is fully functional without the app (which the Moxie is) its nice to have the option of letting someone else control my toy from afar via the phone. I do believe if you are having a partner control it via the phone, you also have to have the app on your phone as well in order to pair the device from long distances… but I don’t think it shares any information with the long distance partner. Again… I haven’t dug into that too deeply, but if you have used the Moxie (or any We-Vibe toy) for long distance fun I’d love to hear about your experience in the comments below!
The Moxie is coated in a very satiny smooth silicone, which feels really great against the skin. However, there is no plushness to the toy at all, I didn’t find the toy uncomfortable exactly… but I could really tell that it was there when I was sitting down for longish periods of time on a hard chair. I really wish it had a little squish to it, just a little padding around the body of the toy would have been fantastic… but overall, its not terrible… I never felt like it hurt or have any discomfort get in the way of having fun… but some squish would have really elevated this toy for me. I want to feel like my clit is being hugged by a pillowy marshmallow… that vibrates. Also, there is that age old bit of advice that says don’t use silicone lube with a silicone toy, as it has the potential to damage your toy. Find yourself a good water based lube and you should be golden.
Charging the Moxie is pretty straight forward. It comes with its own magnetic charging USB cable dodad. Just slap the magnetic bits together then plug it into a USB port on a computer or wall adapter and you are off to the races. I am pretty impressed with the magnetic charging cable, it holds on pretty tight. I let the Moxie dangle from my desktop while charging, and the magnetic USB cable didn’t even flinch, it held fast and charged like a dream. It took roughly 90 minutes to charge the Moxie to full You’ll know its charging by the breathing light on the body of the toy.
Also, if you are a person like myself who loses things constantly (like… I have a drawer full of vibrator power cables and I have no idea who they belong to) and are worried that you will loose the little magnetic bit that keeps the Moxie in place… don’t panic! The We-Vibe Moxie comes with a second magnetic plate just for people like us who would lose our heads if they weren’t screwed on. If you lose the spare… then I don’t know… you might have to email We-Vibe and ask nicely for a replacement, because as of right now I don’t see replacement magnetic plates being offered in their store… but the Moxie is a pretty new toy still so maybe eventually replacement magnets will be added to their accessories section. Just do your best not to lose BOTH magnetic plates (I may sound like I’m yelling at you… but really… I’m yelling at myself… because I know I will lose both plates eventually… it’s just who I am as a person). Along with the extra magnetic plate, the We-Vibe Moxie also comes equipped with its own storage bag
So, anyways… whether you are looking for a discreet wearable vibe for public (or private) fun, a vibrator for long distance used, or just a snazzy accessory for your #OOTD, I can recommend the We-Vibe Moxie. It has that We-Vibe rumble that I’ve come to expect and love from a We-Vibe toy. It is reasonably powerful (and is probably just powerful enough for many people… but I’m a power queen who loves the roar of a jet engine against my clit… I’ve been spoiled with the Doxy and Hitachi wands) and is made from quality materials. I’ve been pretty fond of We-Vibe and their toys for awhile now, even if a toy hasn’t been 100% my thing, I feel pretty comfortable recommending them to people… because I know that the toys are quality and its usually just something nitpicky that I don’t like… but I like the We-Vibe Moxie, it’s a lot of fun! I mostly enjoy the “public” aspect of the toy and its not really something I chose to use at home… when I’m at home, I usually reach for more powerful (and louder… the Moxie is surprisingly quiet… which is perfect for public play) wands. It is without a doubt the best wearable vibrator I’ve tried… but the bar has been set pretty low… I haven’t tried a lot of quality wearables. So if you are like me and pretty inexperienced with the whole “panty” vibe thing… I bet you’ll be equally as impressed with the Moxie as I have been.
