ARCWAVE – Why You Should Be Excited

arc wave

We-Vibe is an ever popular name in the sex toy industry. A leader in teledildonics, which unfortunately isn’t telepathically controlled sex machines, but rather wireless connections to partners wherever you may be, We-Vibe has lead the charge with some industry breaking toys. From the original “We-Vibe” (yep, the toy was just the companies name) to their best selling & award winning We-Vibe Chorus, We-Vibe and WOW Tech, the parent company of We-Vibe, have been doing some pretty phenomenal things when it comes to the wonderful world of sex toys. However, on the WOW Tech website, an interesting new character has appeared. Should you find yourself on the company website, give the “Brands” page a look, and discover a brand new sleek logo & website under the name “ARCWAVE” down the very bottom of the list. The website, although only containing a teaser trailer for a line of four toys, is incredibly intriguing; what could these toys be? How much will these toys utilise their already phenomenal technology? Let’s discuss a few places these toys may be going, and get our foot in the door with what might be the highest quality male toys to hit the market in a long time.

 

In the 1:17 long teaser trailer ARCWAVE has released, very little information was actually given about what the toys could be. WOW Tech are known for their groundbreaking & trendsetting technology: AirPleasure from Womanizer, setting the market for wearables with We-Vibe, incredible phone connectivity, are just some of their industry leading innovations. The first few lines of the trailer are:

 

“Here’s to the men. It’s time for a cultural change. ARCWAVE leads the way, and redefines a whole category.”

 

From just the first 15 seconds, we’ve got a fair bit of information. These toys are for the people with penises. Not everybody that has a penis is a man, so I’ll generalise this audience as penis-havers, or PH’s. This will be the first line from WOW Tech accommodating just men; We-Vibe is mostly gender neutral – with cockrings, g-spot vibrators, bullets, plugs, prostate massagers, clit toys, the works. Womanizer is vaginally centred, with their toys only accommodating for VH’s (surely I don’t need to explain this one). ARCWAVE will most likely be the Womanizer equivalent for PH’s, which in of itself is an incredibly promising idea. Womanizer has garnered some pretty incredible reviews over the years, and selling Womanizer toys has made me pretty envious of some of the responses we’ve been getting from these toys. “Cultural change” probably refers to the stigma around male sex toys – Fleshlights and masturbators are still perceived as pretty crude – and to be totally fair, a lot of them are. A lot of toy descriptions are pretty poor when it comes to the whole “treating women like real people” side of things, and innovations from a leading company would definitely put masturbators on a lot more peoples maps. Sleek, sexy, subtle designs? Masturbators marketed like luxury cars? Perfect for breaking down pre-conceived notions about sex toys. “Redefines a whole category”? We’ll see!

 

The trailer continues.

 

“It’s about adding a new spark to men’s masturbation and making smart devices a natural part of our sexual lives.”

 

While the products will speak for the “new spark” side of things, “making smart devices a natural part of our sexual lives” is what WOW Tech has been doing best. I’ll try to avoid pumping the tyres of WOW Tech too much – they don’t pay me (yet?) – but they’re some of the highest quality sex toys on the market, and they’re already some pretty smart devices. During this line, however, we catch our first glimpse at an actual product shot. At the 0:23 mark, we’re greeted by an app; the ARCWAVE logo sitting at the top of the app interface. 

We see 3 dots (we’ll come back to them), and some text towards the bottom of the UI. It took some squinting, but what I understand that to say, is a measurement of hertz and megahertz. This EXCITED me. The first thing I could relate this sort of technology to was the JETT from Hot Octopuss. The JETT utilises 2 bullets, one treble & one bass, to “Find your Frequency” and utilise the impressive sonic capabilities of treble & bass to bring you to a, supposedly, hands free orgasm! The ARCWAVE toy seems a little different, however. On the screen, we can see three dots – and while the UI towards the bottom only shows MED (medium) and HIGH (I don’t need to explain this one, either), we can safely assume there’s also a LOW (I think I use parenthesis too much), as well, taking the technology of Hot Octopuss a step further. The other interesting thing about this shot? 

Just a few frames later, the app is interacted with, and seemingly corresponding lights reflect an increase in power. Instant connectivity from phone to toy? How very We-Vibe of you, ARCWAVE! What intrigues me most about this is the fact that the JETT is just a cock ring. They market it as a “Guybrator”, but it’s also a ring that fits around a penis and vibrates. Sounds quite cock-ring-y to me. The ARCWAVE toy, however, seems like a fully fledged masturbator utilising some pretty phenomenal technology. I’m excited, that’s for sure. 

 

The phone connectivity begs a few questions, however. To what extent did they develop this? We-Vibes have become notorious for connecting long-distance couples, with their worldwide app connectability, but is ARCWAVE going to do the same? If these are masturbators that aren’t under the We-Vibe name, will they be compatible with the We-Vibe app so that partners from across the world can both experience their toys to the fullest? Assumedly not, which might be a misstep in connecting the WOW Tech Ecosystem. And similarly, toys prior to the We-Vibe Chorus had some pretty shoddy phone connectivity. Both the Chorus and the ARCWAVE line were announced in October 2019, and while the Chorus was released only months later, the We-Vibe wand was released at the same time, and doesn’t feature the upgraded phone connection through ANKORLINK. Will the ARCWAVE line include this improved connection? Only time will tell.

 

As the trailer continues, there are some more vague product shots that unfortunately don’t give us any ideas as to what to expect, but there are some general hints here and there. At the 0:33 mark, we’re given a splitscreen of smashed ice and fire. My speculative eye makes me think we’re getting some sort of temperature play toy in this line, and that’s pretty damn impressive. We’ve seen plenty of heating toys – they’re pretty common – but toys that can cool themselves? That’s new! Obviously cooling lube exists, but built right into the toy? That’s going to be a sight to behold. Now, this shot could very well just be stock footage ARCWAVE threw in to make this trailer seem wicked, as that’s seemingly most of the trailer, but I’d hope a few hints were dropped throughout the video to reward those with a keen eye (or maybe just too much time on their hands). 

 

At 0:40, we’re given a look at what seems like one of the masturbators in this line. This one, in particular, reminds me of a KIIROO toy. For those unaware, KIIROO is a company that specialises in long distance toys and teledildonics. I wrote about their Onyx 2 & Pearl 2 in a past article, and while there was a bit to be desired with those toys, they definitely had the right idea. Those toys could be connected to videos, partners, and animations, and synced up the action on the video to the action on your bits. Similarly, SenseMax’s SenseTube also forayed into the digital/physical masturbator realm, with questionable success levels, but A+ for effort. Is there going to be a similar theme with long distance Toy2Toy pairing? In the past, We-Vibe toy connectivity has been app only, meaning partners could control eachothers toy with a simultaneous app connection, but no feedback from the toy could be send to the other toy, unlike the KIIROO line. But with the addition of Chorus’s TouchSense, allowing for intra-toy feedback, could we see something expanded in the ARCWAVE line?

 

Something to note is the heavy water imagery in the trailer. Waterproofing is usually a given with WOW Tech, as every toy currently in their lines is waterproof, but could we see something like the PDX Hydrobater? For those unaware, the Hydrobater is used underwater, and rushes water past the penis, as if Poseidon himself was getting down & dirty with humans. By all accounts, the Hydrobater is phenomenal, and something out of left field like that definitely wouldn’t be out of the question for a company known for taking a chance that pays its dividends tenfold.

 

A few smaller things I noticed that didn’t deserve a full paragraph would be:

  • There seems to be what looks like speaker holes/meshing on the base (or top?) of one (or some) of the toys in the line. Could they be taking a page from Svakom’s book and including sounds built into the toy?
  • Although it makes sense to include imagery of scantily clad women in the ad, would this also imply that inter-toy connectivity we desired?
  • A lot of the imagery seems to be derived from Hot Octopuss, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see a lot of similarities between lines. The Hot Octopuss Pulse line of “Guybrators” has been doing phenomenally. Do we see a similar toy here?
  • The toy was announced in October 2019, with an early 2020 release expected. As this article is released, it’s September 2020, and the website has remained seemingly untouched since the release trailer was dropped. Should we expect a 2021 release instead?

 

In conclusion, Lovsense ARCWAVE seems incredibly promising. I’m excited, and I’m sure everyone else who has been a fan of WOW Tech toys would be too, but due to the seemingly heavy delays, and lack of updates throughout a whole year, I worry about the release of this line. However, I’m yet to be disappointed by WOW Tech, and while weary, I’m still hopeful that this will genuinely be a revolution in the male sex toy world. Here’s to hoping the ARCWAVE line is released soon, and exceeds every expectation we could ever have!  We will be the first to have them on board at the Oh Zone Adult Stores.

Svakom Alex Review

alex svakom

Upon opening the unit the first thing I noticed is the weight. It weighs a modest 1.2 kg, and for an automatic stroker it is quite light

There are seven thrusting modes but my favourites are either the slowest or the fastest motion depending on my mood/the time I have (no in between for me)

It has a scenario function which you can activate by pressing the sound button (the middle button). 5 different scenarios (of sound and teasing stroking motion) which I’ll be honest with you I rarely use because most of the times I will be watching porn videos whilst using this

The unit has a built-in hi-fi speaker which produces a very clear and high quality sound, or you can plug a 3.5mm standard earphone/headphone jack if you want it to be more intimate

The company claims that 5 hours of charge yields you 1 hour of use. I charge it overnight whenever I see the battery bar is on one and by the time I wake up its ready for me for couple of uses.

The sleeve is made of a very soft TPE with a very complex nubs and shapes, simply put this unit is not going to take long to do its job. The stroking motion mimics penetrative sex

Cleaning is a snap, especially disassembling the sleeve from the unit (just by twisting the plastic cover and twisting the actual sleeve) to assembling the sleeve back up. But drying and cleaning the inner sleeve is a little tricky. You have to ensure that you clean through the complex inner texture thoroughly and dry it thoroughly to keep it hygienic.

Be careful if you live with others, it makes a small yet constant mechanical noise (as all auto-stroker do) but my trick is to wrap it with my blanket / a small towel and you could barely hear anything. A little inconvenient but that is just the risk if we live with flatmates….

The unit itself is inconspicuous and does not scream “masturbator” and it stands on its own so you can put it on a desk or a corner somewhere.

This is comparable to Kiiroo Onyx 2 although Kiiroo’s technology are way superior and each their stroking motion / feel are very distinctive (which we will dissect on another review)

Item dimension: 330mm x 93mm
Sleeve dimension: 33mm stretchy opening 140mm deep

Personal rating:

Price: ★★★☆☆ (quite fairly priced)
Weight: ★★★★★ (easy to hold and maneuver)
Noise: ★★★☆☆ (a small but constant mechanical noise)
Sleeve Texture: ★★★★★ (very soft and complex tunnel)
Cleaning: ★★★★☆ (very easy to clean, needs extra attention on the inner texture)
Battery Life: ★★★★★ (easily lasts 3 to 5 uses per charge)

How to use a vibrating love egg with your partner

egg vibrator

Things are not always as they look! This is quite a fit quote for a vibrating love egg because it’s the smallest of all sex toys but its size makes it a special sex toy! The small size makes it perfect to be used anywhere, a bus while traveling, a party when bored, and basically everywhere you want to use it. Most importantly, never consider that little thing to be any less stronger than a normal vibrator because ladies have not really been able to handle the strongest intensity that a vibrating love egg offers!

 

But, the main point to consider is can a vibrating love egg be used with a partner or only for some alone time fun! Well, contradicting the facts for all the sex toys there, this one is perfect for both the situations. Yes, you’ve read it right. In fact, this is a great sex toy to experiment in bed with your partner and make love to him in some wild ways.

 

 

Do you wonder how to use a vibrating love egg with your partner? Here are a few tips for that purpose:

 

  • Be creative

Basically, all the egg vibrators are considered to be of the penetrative nature and hence it’s a big confusion for how to use them while having intercourse. Penetration will still be an option but you’ve got another option too! Both of you just need to get that creative side out and try to use the toy for your uttermost fun.

 

  • Treat as any other vibrator

The least creative you could be is by treating this vibrating love egg as any other vibrator while intercourse. Though the vibrators are quite better for some purposes SVAKOM’S Elva Remote-Controlled Wearable Intelligent Vibrating Bullet Egg will not be any less than a normal vibrator here. It will stimulate and caress your Clitoris like any other vibrator and hit your erogenous areas fantastically!

 

  • Take advantage of the small size

Vibrators are usually quite huge in size and hence could be difficult to use while having sex. But, when you’re using a vibrating love egg, it’s quite different as its small and can be used in numerous ways. Like vibrators do the job pretty well, a love egg, when used properly, could be a major turn-on while having sex. Also, love egg has got an upper hand over vibrators because they’re used with a cable and that makes it quite easier to insert while intercourse.

 

  • Try it for the two way

Ever used a dildo in your anus while the dick was in the front? Must have felt great being locked at both the places? Now imagine a vibrating love egg instead of the dildo, and the sensations and stimulations that you’ll be feeling down there. This is the best way to use the vibrating love egg or you could try it vice versa too! Also, you’re not the only one to have fun in this case! Your spouse will feel great too as he will be feeling those vibrations through the walls of your vagina! For this purpose, SVAKOM’S Elva Remote-Controlled Wearable Intelligent Vibrating Bullet Egg will be perfect as it can be adjusted for the multiple intensity levels.

 

Egg vibrators are pretty simple yet most creative as long as you are ready for that challenge! The best part is that it covers all the perks for the vibrator if you use the SVAKOM’S Elva Remote-Controlled Wearable Intelligent Vibrating Bullet Egg because it has 5 intensity levels to adjust!

 

Going Handsfree – The Easiest Orgasm Ever

free hands

Remember those businessmen in the mid 2000’s that ALWAYS had those annoying bluetooth earpieces? They might’ve been onto something. Getting the job done with just the touch of a button?

While it may have taken a few years, the sex toy industry has recently perfected handsfree, and the technology they’ve created is bound to make those usually lackluster solo sessions both more fun, but also much easier on the forearms.

Svakom – Alex

This ones for the people with wangs. While I think that’s the first time I’ve ever seriously used the word ‘wang’, I would seriously use the Svakom Alex every damn day. While visually comparable to a Nutri-Bullet, the Alex is a self thrusting masturbator made with every fantasy in mind. The Alex has earned it’s place in a few articles I’ve written before, similar to the aforementioned Stronic Line, and I feel I summarised it’s impressive abilities and features pretty well in ‘Jumping Into It: The Welcoming Guide To Sex Toys’:

Featuring two motors, complete submersibility, and an innovative remote control with squeeze control (it’s as cool as it sounds), the toy touts everything you could want and more in a toy. It also flexes the ability to create completely personalised vibration patterns inside the compatible ‘We-Connect’ app. The toy can be used solo, with a partner, or anywhere in between, as the toy can be controlled remotely with the app from anywhere in the world, but because of the personalised vibrations you can let take charge, this toy is perfect to go completely hands free. 

 

Take Charge!

For the buying portion of this, you’re going to need to use your hands.

After that, however, head home, dim the lights, and go completely hands free in your pleasure. These toys are premium examples of taking pleasure into your own hands, and then letting the well designed toys take you to another level. Take your time, have fun, and go hands free!
