Is there anything more classic than a magic wand original? Is it a back massager or a mechanism to induce life-changing orgasms? Or both?! Cosmopolitan Magazine called it the “little black dress” of massagers, and Time Magazine named it among the top ten “Most Influential Gadgets of All Time.”

While I have some major pros and cons to address about this toy — one thing we can definitely all agree on is that it’s a classic.

When Magic Wand offered to send me their original plug-in model I was super excited. I’ve only used a Magic Wand one time and it was an experience to remember — so I anxiously awaited this box to arrive.

How to Use the Magic Wand Original

Magic Wand Original

Having my first experience with this toy be with a partner using it on my body (I never actually operated or held the wand), I can say with certainty that I prefer to have this used on me vs. using it on myself.

You can use this wand in SO many different ways that it’s almost overwhelming. That in combination with the intensity of the sensations — it’s almost too much to receive and give to oneself at the same time!

I definitely struggled to find the best angle while still trying to enjoy the side vibrations.

PSA: For both hygiene, clean-up ease, and health, put a condom over the head of the magic wand. Trust me!

Who May Enjoy This Toy, Sensations of The Magic Wand

You can use this toy by itself, with vaginal penetration, with anal penetration or all of the above. It is incredibly versatile and can be used solo or with someone else.

This is a staple in a sex toy collection, but is not for the beginner user — unless you have a partner to help you. I think this is best used with a partner (of course you can use it by yourself!!!), simply need some seriously powerful grinding force, or used with mounting furniture, like from Liberator. (More to come from them later!)

The sensations are intense. I could feel the vibration through my full pelvis.

Pros & Cons of the Magic Wand Original


  • Versatility. The fact that this can be used to massage my back and make me come is basically the biggest pro possible.. so that’s number one.
  • Has many add-on options to customize it to be what you want and need.
  • Durable and long-standing positive brand reputation


  • The cord is limiting, especially if you’re playing with a partner
  • It’s SO intense. I can’t overstate the intensity.
  • Because there are so many uses, I can’t recommend this for new users

Overall Rating

To summarize, this is a classic ‘personal massager’ sex toy that is versatile, intense, and has tons of different attachments you can get for it, including an intensity dial, insertable pop-ons, and textured covers.

Overall: 3.5/5 stars.
