Womanizer W100 – Sex Toy Review
Okay, with these dictionary definitions in mind… why would anyone name a sex toy The Womanizer? It springs to mind so many negative connotations, there is just nothing sexy about it. I’m going to go ahead and guess that they were trying to imply that this toy really pleases women, but really, Womanizer… I think there are better words out there. The Womanizer W100 does appear to be European in origin, so one can only hope the word has an entirely different meaning over there.
Ridiculous name aside, Let’s take a look at this toy… its shape, could they have made it look any less sexy? I’ve seen other reviewers comparing it to one of those electric ear thermometers or those fancy blackhead suckers. The shape does make it easy to hold though, so I shouldn’t be too hard on it. I will not body shame a sex toy. I’m better than that. But… it’s lightweight plastic body makes its construction feel very cheap and ugh, those seams. When I get turned on, I get wet, when I get wet, things get sloppy… and guess what happened… fluids all up in those damn seams. And, since the Womanizer is not waterproof, extra care needs to be taken when cleaning after use. Thankfully, the silicone head is removable, making at least one part of the toy easy to clean (bonus: the Womanizer comes with 2 silicone heads, making it easy to swap a clean head onto the toy while the other waits to be cleaned.)
As far as the designs go, I think I got the least garish of the lot. Besides the Tattoo Edition, you can also obtain the Womanizer 100 in Black Leopard, Pink Crocodile, Purple Snow Leopard, and Turquoise Blue Crocodile and each design is adorned with a giant, funky, faux jewel that acts as a button and each has the name of what I can only assume are lady wrestlers of GLOW. When I look at these toys, I feel like they are something that I picked up at some little old granny’s garage sale, where she is selling off all the weird stuff she bought in the 80’s. Those colors. Those designs. It’s Elton John’s closet in a sex toy (maybe not necessarily a bad thing…).
BUT, if you can get past all that… the Womanizer is actually a surprisingly unique toy with an interesting concept and the ability to bring my normally power hungry clit into an acceptable orgasm.
In theory, the Womanizer is fairly simple to use, but it does seem to posses a learning curve. So, on the main body of the toy there are two buttons, first, the on/off, as you would expect it is click once to turn on, hold down to turn off. And the second button, well remember the big faux jewel I mentioned above? This is how you cycle through the six intensity settings of the Womanizer. Now, where the learning curve comes into play is the positioning. The idea is to spread apart your labia, exposing your clit, then with the toy already turned on and in its lowest setting, and center the silicone head over your clit. Again, it sounds simple, but finding “the spot” where a proper seal happens seems to trip people up (it took me several play sessions before I finally found the optimum bit of clitoral real estate.).
Once you get the toy in place, that’s it. Your job is done, now you just sit back and wait. For me, this was the hardest part. I normally like to have a bit more interaction with my toys, I like to wiggle, wobble, thrust, and twist. With the Womanizer, it’s like I’m holding a sleeping baby and if I move even the slightest fraction of an inch, it will wake up screaming bloody murder. Maintaining the proper seal is your only job when using the Womanizer. Which I think rules out using this toy while being penetrated, unless you have a particularly steady hand. So, I’m guessing the best use of the Womanizer is during solo play (or you could try having a partner hold it for you).
Little side note: the Womanizer tip glows red for some reason, which caused me to panic a little bit at first. To me, red means “HOLY FUCK SOMETHING IS GOING VERY TERRIBLE WRONG, ABORT, ABORT.” Apparently, it means absolutely nothing with the Womanizer… don’t panic.
The Womanizer is described by others as having a sucking sensations, so I was braced for something a little more along the line of the Pussy Pump or Nipple Suckers. But no, it is all very mild, very gentle, and the vibrations are not at all strong (even on the highest setting). And in all honestly, I’m not really sure there is any true vibrations happening. When I hold the silicone head against the palm of my hand, I don’t actually feel anything vibrating – not like what you get with a traditional vibrating toy anyway. It’s more of a… tapping? Like, there are teeny tiny fingers TAP TAP TAPPING your clit like it’s a tiny piano. Except… nothing seems to actually make direct contact with the clitoris… it’s all very mysterious and magical.
Okay, I don’t believe the manufactures ever described the Womanizer as doing any sucking. According to the product description, the Womanizer uses Pleasure Air technology. Which apparently is a revolutionary technology that makes it possible to stimulate the clitoris without contact. Pleasure Air? The hell does that mean? I don’t feel like there is any air involved. But what do I know. I’m going to chock it all up to tiny wizards casting spells at my clit. Whatever it is doing, there is really nothing else like it on the market today. I guess if I had to sum up what the Womanizer feels like, I would say it’s vaguely like oral sex. It’s better than any other oral sex simulator currently on the market. Although, it’s oral sex from a partner who is very focused on only lightly blowing puffs of air at your clit.
I should make it clear… even with all its quirky weirdness, I like the Womanizer. I like it. I really do. I don’t love it, but I really, quite strongly like it. I don’t usually do subtle, my go-to toy is either my Doxy or Magic Wand, my masturbation motto is “go big or go home.” So, for something as subtle and delicate as the Womanizer to bring me to orgasm, is pretty cool. It’s not a fast orgasm, it does take a few minutes of just laying there, clearing my mind, and focusing on the sensations… it could almost be described as a bit meditative. A meditative sex toy.
Other Womanizer W100 reviews mention how loud this toy is. That is has a noisy suctioning, Slurping sound that accompanies it. So, I really listened for that. But I don’t hear it, the Womanizer is much quieter than a lot of vibrators I own. At worse, it had a bit of a gurgling sound before I got it sealed against my skin, and after that, it was mostly just a soft hum. And even on the off chance that someone did hear it while in use, it doesn’t sound like the traditional whirring of a vibrator, so they probably will have no idea what they are even hearing. So, I’m going to go ahead and disagree with some of the reviewers out there, it is not a loud toy – it will be more discreet then a lot of other vibrators.
The Womanizer is rechargeable, and comes with a USB cable. I find this mildly annoying, because it means you either need to borrow the wall portion of your iPhone charger, or have a sex toy hanging out of your computer while it charges. While, this is not a huge deal for me, it may be inconvenient for those who are after discretion. Although, if your roommate asks whats that hanging out of your computer, you can probably say “oh, its just an ear thermometer I bedazzled during wine night with my aunts.” and they’ll probably believe you. After all, who would design a sex toy to look like this, on purpose? Anyway, after it’s initial charge, the Womanizer has lasted me through multiple 10-15 minute long play sessions and is still going strong (it has an estimated 4 hour battery life). Also included, as I mentioned above, is a second silicone head and a zippered hard storage case. My Womanizer came in a black case, but I’ve heard others reporting that theirs arrived with a bright pink case, so this may vary depending on the style you choose. I personally love the storage container, any sex toy that comes with its own method of storage gets extra points in my book.
Do I recommend the Womanizer? It’s unique, it’s different, it’s a toy that is so hard to explain. So, yes, I do recommend it. At least to those of you who are willing to be patient and spend a little bit of time figuring the toy out. If you are impatient, or want a quick wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am of an orgasm, you might find the Womanizer frustrating. It’s a toy perfect for those who enjoy pinpoint clitoral stimulation as well as those who prefer a light to middling level of stimulation. It’s also great if you have ever looked at your sex toy collection and said to yourself “man, if only there was more leopard print” then the Womanizer might just be what you are looking for. Also, I would totally recommend the Womanizer to Madonna, circa 1980.
Should you wish to try out the Womanizer yourself,
you can pick one up from Adult Vibe Toys for $188.99 (which is slightly cheaper price than you’ll find it at most places.).
