How about BOTH? Remember that infamous episode of “Sex & The City” when Kim Catrell’s character “Samantha” tried to return her VIBRATOR to The Sharper Image and she got into a big debate with the Sharper Image sales guy about it being a back massager and not a sex toy. Turns out they were both right!
For decades, women have been buying “back massagers” from the Sears & Roebuck catalog! Mommy’s little helper came in the form of a valium and the “Oster” massagers.
Modern women can buy a “back massager” at Walgreens, CVS and pretty much any other local neighborhood drug store. I remember buying my Hitachi Magic Wand at a local Walgreens about 20 years ago and it’s still going strong. I bought it at the drug store thinking I was being discreet. (I was 21 at the time… so naive.) I didn’t realize that the entire FREE WORLD used their back massagers for other areas and not just their tense neck or back. What can I say, I was a late bloomer.
The Hitachi Magic Wand is likely the most INFAMOUS back massager. Every lesbian I have ever met and talked about sex toys with has mentioned the magical electric wand from Hitachi – often referred to as the “magic wand.” I always joke that lesbians KNOW THEIR TOYS! And, here in the Bay Area, where we do our Bliss Pleasure Parties, we meet lots of gay women who are not too shy to share their favorite sex toys with us!
The Magic Wand is a beautiful toy and it is also a FAB back massager. It plugs into the wall so it’s very reliable. No batteries to wear down or that die on you at that oh so important moment! Seriously, it’s a great massager that also works very well for masturbation and partner sex. It’s not the sexiest vibrator nor is it the prettiest, but I can tell you it’s VERY reliable and will get the job done EVERY TIME.
But, here is some really good news I am so excited to share with all of you. The company that makes the Hitach Magic Wand now ships a new cordless and waterproof wand called the Mystic Wand. I think it’s PERFECTION and am so excited that my customers seem to agree. I have been showing it for about a month now at our home parties and everyone who touches it falls in love, too.
The new Mystic Wand has this yummy skin on the wand/bulb that is called “skin safe silicone” so this vibrator can be used all over the body, even on sensitive skin! Massage aching shoulders and soothe sore necks, then guide the rounded head to more intimate areas of your body for some truly stunning sensations! The flexible neck allows this massager to be used at any angle, hitting sweet spots you never even knew you had!
This new “back massager” is like the Hitachi Magic Wand’s sweeter, sexier and more portable version. It takes 4 double AA batteries and has PLENTY of power for those of you who like the stronger toys. It has 6 speeds, so something for everyone! And, it’s CORDLESS so much easier to share with your partner and use together.
Both wands are made by one of my favorite sex toy manufacturers, Vibratex. Vibratex is the manufacturer of the Original Rabbit Pearl – the “rabbit” that Charlotte from “Sex & The City” became addicted to. Vibratex makes great quality toys and this new cordless “back massager” is at the top of their TOP 3 Sex Toys, in my opinion. They have a knack for making toys that endure, are made with women in mind and they also give lots of thought to the ergonomics. (Plus their sex toys have a 1 year warranty!)
