What is the We-Vibe Nova?
The We-Vibe Nova is a rabbit style vibrator with a difference. You still experience dual stimulation in the form of G Spot massage and clitoral titillation. However, the arc shaped arm of the We-Vibe Nova is designed to solve the problem of losing clitoral contact as you thrust, which is a common complaint with standard vibrators.
The We-Vibe Nova was sent to me by We-Vibe for free, in return for an honest and unbiased review of the product.
Where can I buy the We-Vibe Nova?
Because We-Vibe operate worldwide, the We-Vibe Nova is available from most reputable UK retailers such as Ann Summers and normally retail for around £107 as it is a luxury vibrator.
My first impressions of the We-Vibe Nova
The We-Vibe Nova comes in a lovely storage pouch and has a USB charger, full instructions and a sachet of water-based lubricant.
The design of the We-Vibe Nova is unlike any rabbit-style vibrator that I have ever seen before. The shaft of the vibrator is very slim and measures just 3 inches in circumference at the smallest point. Once you move up the shaft, it begins to curve and thicken towards the vaginal wall so that it seeks out the G Spot. At the thickest part of the shaft the circumference is 4.5 inches, whilst the bulbous tip is flat at the side so it massages a wider area around the G Spot.
The most intriguing part of the design is the flexible clitoral arm. As you can see from the pictures, the arm has a much deeper curve than a traditional rabbit vibrator and offers a lot of flexibility. The top of the arm is quite thick and contains a vibrating motor which sits directly against your clit.
Special features of the We-Vibe Nova
From the information on the box, I can immediately see that the We-Vibe Nova has ten modes of vibration. The unit is also operated by two separate motors, one in the shaft and another in the tip of the clitoral arm. The We-Vibe Nova is also waterproof, which means that it can be used in the bath or shower and is crafted from body-safe silicone, which always warms nicely in heated water.
According to the information on the box, the We-Vibe Nova is whisper quiet and rechargeable, so it doesn’t need batteries.
Charging the We-Vibe Nova
To charge the We-Vibe Nova, attach the USB charger to a suitable plug or insert it into your laptop. The magnetic charger attaches to the small silver ports on the front of the vibrator and charging begins immediately. A small light just below the charger flashes to indicate that the charger is working properly.
The We-Vibe Nova requires a charge of 2 hours before use, but the charge does last for ages.
Connecting the We-Vibe Nova to the We-Vibe App
Never one to miss out on an opportunity to innovate, We-Vibe have their own App in which you can pair your We-Vibe Nova (or other suitable product) to your smartphone. This was very easy to do, I downloaded the App and followed the instructions until I got to the part where I was asked to pair the device.
To pair the We-Vibe Nova with my iPhone, I placed my vibrator close to my phone and switched it on. The App found the vibrator straight away and I was able to control the Nova completely using the touch screen on my phone. Amazing!
The App even remembers the last mode I used, so there is no need to scroll through the settings either, it’s really impressive.
Switching on the We-Vibe Nova
For those who prefer to control the We-Vibe Nova using their fingers. At the base of the vibrator, you’ll see a series of symbols which are arranged around a circular depression. The switch the We-Vibe Nova on, press the depression once and the vibrator comes to life.
To switch between modes, use the < and > buttons until you find the perfect level of vibration. To increase the power, press the + button and to decrease intensity, press the – button.
To switch off the We-Vibe Nova, keep your finger pressed on the depression until the vibrator stops.
My Review of the We-Vibe Nova
Dual stimulation isn’t really my thing; I much prefer clitoral stimulation but occasionally a vibrator comes along which completely blows me away. The clever design of the We-Vibe Nova ensured that there was constant vibration against my clit. No matter how I moved the vibrator, the flexible arm never let me down and this was an absolute game changer for me. No more fiddly positioning, no more playing a game of ‘hit and hope’ with rabbit ears, just good solid vibration and of course, a very intense orgasm.
Because the We-Vibe Nova uses medical grade silicone, I recommend using a water-based lubricant with this vibrator as this type of silicone does have a tendency to drag against the skin without it. This is where the free sachet of lubricant comes in handy, you only need a little bit to get the required amount so that leaves plenty of time to pick up some more.
The We-Vibe Nova is fiddly to control without using the App as I found that the raised control buttons weren’t obvious enough for me to find the right one during use. I much preferred using the app to control the vibrator as the functions were easier to see and follow.
One of my favourite things about the We-Vibe Nova were the huge range of modes to play with. There are ten different modes of vibration granted, but each mode can be adjusted by the power level so there are lots of combinations to experiment with. I certainly had a great time trying them out. For best results, start with a teasing pulsation like the Cha Cha Cha setting and switch to constant, intense vibration as you are about to climax…
The We-Vibe Nova in a nutshell
Overall, this is by far the best rabbit style vibrator I have ever used and this isn’t a statement I make lightly. It ticks all the boxes and never fails to bring me to orgasm, and on some occasions multiple orgasms. I have always been wary of recommending luxury sex toys because they do cost a lot of money. However, I would be happy to pay for this sex toy because for me, it’s worth every penny.
