We-Vibe 3 is a dual stimulating vibrator that’s designed to connect with some of the most sensitive areas of the female body. Great for solo play, it provides a totally hands free session, taking the work out of pleasuring yourself. What’s better? This toy is also designed to be used with a partner during intercourse! With the vibrator in place, penetrative sex is not only possible, but gives pleasure to both parties involved; stimulating internal and external areas of the female body, and your cock wielding partner!

There are a few alternative uses for this toy, making it work for just about anyone, whether you’re playing solo or together. With proper lube, the internal and external stimulators can be placed on either side of the penis and moved back and forth with a stroking motion. The texture to these areas along with the vibrations make it a really stimulating experience. Another use would be for anal play. The insertable part can be placed inside of you, while the external stimulator can pleasure your perineum, testicles, and depending on anatomy, the bottom area of your vaginal opening. Do use some caution with anal play, and make sure you sterilize the toy before using it vaginally again.
Totally waterproof, this vibrator can be used anywhere you and/or your partner feel like getting frisky. It’s compact, travel friendly, and is a great product to take with you on vacation! Because this toy pleases you and your partner and can be used during intercourse, it keeps you close and eliminates the need to bring several toys in order to please you both. If you’re a really adventurous couple, the vibe can be used in public as well. It’s comfortable and quiet enough that it can be worn under clothes without anyone knowing.
We-Vibe 3 isn’t the first of its kind, it’s an updated version of previous models. The 3 is rechargeable, just like the ones before it, but charges inside a plastic case that doubles as storage. It’s definitely a great upgrade from the silky pouch that comes with the II. That’s far from the best upgrade though; the 3 is also fully waterproof and comes with a wireless remote! No more fumbling with the toy to change the settings, now all you have to worry about is who gets to control it!
Made from silicone, this vibrator is body safe, non-porous, latex free, and phthalate free. It’s one of the best materials for a sex toy because of how safe it is. This particular silicone has a shiny surface that collects all kinds of lint and particles. You’ll want to rinse it off before each use because of this reason, or at least be very careful as you remove it from the case. On top of picking up lint, it also has a lot of drag to it. If you’re using it on your own, a little lubricant helps, but if you’re using it for penetrative sex, you’ll want to use a decent amount to eliminate friction which could cause discomfort to the penis.
There isn’t any give to the silicone since it’s simply covering the motors and parts inside. The internal and external stimulators are very firm, but the area between them has a lot of flex to it. You shouldn’t try to manipulate this area too much, but the flexibility makes it suitable for more users since it’s more likely to work with your anatomy.
The inside of the internal and external stimulators are both textured. The external piece is much more subtle, having several rows of rounded, shallow ribs. The internal stimulator has a little bit of a deeper texture to it, making it a little more obvious during use. I don’t believe anyone would feel it’s too overwhelming since it’s not designed to be thrust, but it does move a little during intercourse. The outside of the vibe (top of the external piece and bottom of the internal piece) aren’t designed to provide a textured stimulation. The top has the name of the toy on it, but the bottom is totally smooth. The smooth area is what would come in contact with the penis during partnered use, making the vibrations stand out.
We-Vibe 3 has a wonderful shape that’s really designed to work for a variety of people and in a variety of ways. Dual stimulating toys are great, but there aren’t many that will stimulate your partner as well. Being designed to work for two people, stimulating three different pleasure zones, and being nearly effortless to use? The toy practically screams, “buy me now!” The image below gives you the best idea of how the vibrator works, and was taken directly from their website.
There were two questions that stuck out in my mind when I first heard about this product (actually, the We-Vibe II):
1) Does it really stay in place like it’s supposed to?
2) Will there be enough room for my partner and the toy to comfortably be in my vagina at the same time?
For me, the answer was yes to both. The shape of the toy does a great job at staying in place, even during penetration. It might move a little bit during thrusting, but for the most part it stays exactly where it belongs. As far as there being room, that will depend a little more on you and your partner’s anatomy. It should work for most people, but if your partner is very girthy and commonly causes you discomfort during regular intercourse, this might not work out for you. As long as you’re relaxed and properly lubricated, there shouldn’t be an issue with the average couple.
The size of the toy is very compact, easily fitting in the palm of my hand. Without measuring along the curve of the toy, its length is 3 1/4″ long and 2 1/2″ wide. The two sides differ only slightly in size; the insertable area is just as wide as the top, but thins sooner than the top area. It’s also very flat looking while the external portion looks more plump. Even for a beginner, the size is very manageable, the only issue would be how it would work for you paired with a partner.
Forget batteries, We-Vibe 3 is rechargeable! The charging system is a huge improvement and is such a great feature to this toy! Rather than having an adapter plug directly into your toy, this one gets plugged into a base where the toy rests. Genius! The base has three dips in it, one for either side of the toy, and one in between for the remote. When the toy arrives, it requires an initial 24 hour charge. It’s difficult to wait, but it’s well worth it! Put the cover on over the toy, plug it in, and you’ll see a little light at the bottom turn on. This light will glow steady and will turn off then the toy is juiced up and ready to go. How long the charge lasts will depend entirely on the setting you’re using but should last through at least a couple sessions before needing to recharge (up to two hours according to the website).
On the tip of the external side there is a very small button. It’s hardly raised from the toy, but you can feel it when you slide your fingers over that area. To turn the toy on, you press the button once. Every press of the button after that will bring you to another pattern. If you pass one you like, you’ll have to cycle back through them all to find it again, there’s isn’t a way to go back apart from that. When you want to turn the toy off, you can cycle through the patterns, or simply press the button down for a couple seconds. Going through the patterns using the button can be a real pain during use, fortunately thanks to the upgraded design, you can use the included remote to get the job done!
The remote is really basic and is made from ABS plastic. It’s nice and compact in size and is simple to use. The front shows the company name at the bottom, and the button itself is ergonomically shaped to fit your finger; making it easy to use even in the dark. The back of the remote has a sticker on it that has information on it about the product but has no other information or marking on it apart from that.
The remote only controls cycling through the patterns. When you want to turn the toy off while using it, you’ll need to go through each pattern until the vibrations stop, holding down the remote button will not turn the toy off.
My husband and I decided we would try testing how far apart we could be while using the remote. We were both pretty impressed with the results! While we couldn’t be on two different floors in our home, but we were able to be between 10-15 feet apart. You could easily be out on a date with your partner and use this toy as a sexy, secret way to spice up your evening!
The patterns with this toy are fantastic! There should be at least something that will work for you and your partner, and a position that will compliment it. Please check out the playbook for suggestions.
The power behind the vibrations should be suitable for most users. There are lower intensity levels for those that are more sensitive, and more powerful settings for those that need a little more power behind their toys. I was really impressed with the variety and very pleased with the power, which says a lot. Another reason the vibrations are so awesome is the fact that they’re deep and rumbly! It’s not likely your clit will become numb from this one! The vibrations are felt pretty evenly throughout the toy thanks to the two motors, so you and your partner will both be feeling the same amount of power.
With a toy that has real power behind it, there is always the worry that you’ll wake the neighbors as soon as you turn it on. That’s not the case with this toy! You could easily be in the same room with others and they wouldn’t be able to hear it as long as other noise is present (TV, music, etc.). Super fun if you and your partner are adventurous!
Being waterproof, you don’t need to be careful when it comes to washing your toy. Using antibacterial soap and warm water or your favorite sex toy cleaner will be your best option, but you’ll want to clean it with a 10% bleach solution if you’re planning on switching orifices or sharing with someone else. Always make sure the toy is totally dry before storaging.
Like all silicone products, it’s recommended you only use a water-based lubricant with this toy. During intercourse you’ll need to use a little more than normal, so don’t be afraid to slather it on or reapply as you need.
The charging base and cover also works as storage for your We-Vibe 3. Remove the adapter, cover your toy, and you’re good to go! The cover fits on nice and snug so there’s no worry about it coming off while you’re storing it.
The toy arrives in an oval shaped box that is tasteful looking, but not discreet. It shows an image of the toy on either side and includes a variety of information about it. Since the toy comes with its own storage it’s not important to keep the box, but it should hold up fairly well to long term storage if that’s what you plan to use it for.
The box includes the toy, charging base and cover, adapter, and user manual. The manual contains information on the 1 year warranty, and all the basic information about how the toy works. The same information and more can be found directly from their website.
The first vibrating toy my husband and I purchased together was the We-Vibe II back in 2010. We were looking for toys to use together and that one jumped out at me. We bought it, charged it, but when we went to use it, were both frustrated by having to press the button on the toy to change the pattern. It wasn’t easy to do during use and so the toy was put aside and used infrequently.
When I saw that they were coming out with a third version of the We-Vibe, I was immediately interested! The upgrades sounded fantastic and the things that frustrated us both about the II were addressed and changed. We weren’t able to get the 3 for a while, life and kids come before toys, but I was recently able to obtain this toy and try it out with my husband.
He kept putting it off, thinking it wasn’t going to be a good experience. He doesn’t love vibrating cock rings because they distract him (his words), so he assumed this would be sort of the same idea. I was finally able to convince him to use it with me when I said blowjobs would be put on hold until we tried it, that did the trick!
We don’t normally need to use lube during intercourse, so he looked at me a little funny when I told him to grab some. I told him it was important, so he applied some to his cock before sliding into me. I could tell right away that he enjoyed it from the way he was moving and the sounds he was making, and I was getting into it just as much. Having something vibrating directly against my clit the whole time without having to hold it there was pure bliss!
I cycled through the vibrations twice, trying to find one that would work best for both of us. Once I hit the fifth setting, it wouldn’t cycle through anymore. I kept pressing the button on the remote but it wouldn’t change. We finished our play time and did a little testing after. It seems like it was a total fluke, because it hasn’t acted up since then.
We talked about our experience after and he said the only bad thing was that he didn’t apply enough lube (should have listened, Babe!) and he felt a little friction issue with it. The grabby silicone really does require a fair amount of lubricant, so please, don’t be shy and reapply as you need. Apart from that, he loved it, which is a lot coming from him. I didn’t climax from it when we used it together, but I think the only reason was because I was focused on why the settings weren’t changing instead of the feelings it provided. Overall, I love this toy, like a lot! If it weren’t for the silicone having so much drag, I would have given it 5 stars!
