A magic wand vibrator, essentially, is like a shot of tequila. It’s intense and it’s there to get you off. Anyone who has used Hitachi, the original magic wand, knows that wand vibrators aren’t here to put on smooth jazz and slowly seduce you with a glass of champagne. They exist to give you the most intense orgasm of your life without a care in the world about looking more like a machine than a beautiful piece of art.
However, Unbound’s Ollie vibrator, as I recently found out, strikes a wonderful balance between the powerful wand you know and the gorgeous sex toys you may be used to. Here’s what happened when I tried it out, and why it will likely be a permanent addition to my sex toy collection.
What is the Ollie?
The Ollie vibrator, created by Unbound, is a cordless baby blue take on the magic wand vibrator. It doesn’t have confusing dials or look like it came out of a doctor’s office, yet it still provides the intensity of a Hitachi (or at least, as I found, it comes pretty close). It’s a cute blue color (a shade fit for any mermaid), so it fills a void in the wand vibrator category of being both pretty and powerful. And, to continue my earlier analogy, it’s friendlier than a tequila shot but remains a bit more hardcore than a glass of bubbly. It’s like a Negroni, a delicious cocktail that still packs a punch.
This particular vibrator is cordless. What’s that mean, you ask? Unlike some wand vibrators, you don’t need to use it near an electrical socket — you can simply plug it into a USB drive. It’s totally waterproof and made with body-safe silicone, so whether you’re more mermaid, witch, or even a proud muggle, you can take it swimming (or you know, in the bathtub) with you.
What are the vibration patterns like?
The Ollie wand vibrator comes with eight different speeds and patterns. While I appreciate a spin on the original wand style, when it comes to vibration patterns, I stay old school: keep it intense and consistent, please. I’m included in the 75 percent of people with vaginas who need clitoral stimulation to get off, and personally, I found the Ollie wand vibrator a perfect addition to partnered penetrative sex.
So, did I like it?
While the sheer size of most wand vibrators makes some partnered positions more difficult than others, this one worked well. Additionally, if you’re interested in exploring anal sex and have a clitoris, using a powerful vibrator such as the Ollie on your clit can make anal penetration easier by increasing blood flow to the region, which can make it easier to relax.

You could also just use this magic wand in the bath for a solo night and enjoy a mermaid-themed masturbation night. The Ollie wand vibrator is sold for $74 on the brand’s website. The brand also offers an installment payment plan option for those interested.
