Sex Toy Review: We-Vibe Tango

Searching for a petite, portable toy that offers multiple modes of vibration? You might fancy the We-Vibe Tango—a lipstick shaped mini vibrator that’s a lot more powerful than it lets on.

They don't call it the lipstick shaped mini for nothing.

They don't call it the lipstick shaped mini for nothing.

What you need to know right off the bat: The Tango is waterproof, eco-friendly, and rechargeable. Equipped with eight different vibration modes, the toy lasts up to 2 hours of play on a single charge and will only take 90 minutes to get back to full power.

Its charging adapter is interchangeable with other We-Vibe products; so that means you can use the same power accessory for the Tango, the Salsa, the Touch, the We-Vibe 3, etc.

And this mini vibe is constructed of 100% body-safe PC-ABS thermoplastic and comes in three different colors—purple, rose, and blue.

The perks:

  • The vibe, equipped with charging accessory and bag.

    It’s green! As I mentioned above, the toy is rechargeable—which is a huge, huge win in my book. (The first vibe I ever owned was a MyPleasure Pocket Rocket, and lets just say it’s a major bummer when a toy dies and there are no more AA batteries in site.) And it comes in recycled packaging.

  • Clean up is very basic, all you need is soap and water.
  • The lipstick-like tip provides both narrow edges and a flat area, so you can switch up the stimulation.
  • Operation is simple: Press the button on the bottom to turn the vibe on. Hit the button again to change vibration modes. Hold the power button down for several seconds to power down. Easy, right?

The setbacks:

  • The vibrator costs $79.99. Am I saying that’s unreasonable? Not exactly. You get what you pay for: Quality, variety, and durability. But could I have an equally awesome orgasm using a $10 Silver Bullet? Probably.
  • The website describes the vibe as “compact yet incredibly powerful,” and they were not kidding around. When it came to direct clitoral stimulation, anything beyond the lowest setting was almost too intense. (For a better understanding of the differences between vibes, check out the photo below.)

  • It’s not the quietest vibe I’ve ever used. The low, medium, and high modes are not so bad, considering it’s a constant hum. But when it gets into the patterns—such as the tease or the cha cha—it’s a bit more difficult to masque the noise level.

Overall opinion? If you’re looking for a discrete toy that’s easy to take on the go, I’d say give it a whirl.
