For most people Ann Summers is synonymous with vibrators. For many of us our first foray into sex toys began at the back of our local Ann Summers with the uber famous Rabbit vibes. My latest review acquisition is a super modern multi tasker. The Ann Summers Flex Rechargeable Wand is part of the new Flex range of toys.
As suggested by the name the key feature to the Flex range is flexibility. In fact, Flex takes this to new levels. The first thing I notice about the Ann Summers Flex Rechargeable Wand is how bendy it is. I can actually fold the Flex Wand into my hand.
Sleek and Modern
Petrol blue in colour, and looking very sleek and modern the Ann Summers Flex Rechargeable Wand measures 9 inches in length. This is divided into two ends. The first end consists of a good solid wand head for clitoral stimulation. The second end has a more tapered internal shaft for penetration. The insertable length is 3 inches.
Made of super silky soft silicone the Ann Summers Flex Rechargeable Wand is body safe and non-porous. The surface of the Flex Wand feels amazing. The silicone is so silky its almost impossible not to stroke it.
There are 3 control buttons on the handle of the Ann Summers Flex Rechargeable Wand. One each to control the dual ends and one to scroll through the ten available settings. These consist of 3 steady vibrations settings in increasing intensities and 7 patterned settings. Some of the patterned settings feel stronger even than the highest steady setting.
The vibration itself differs strongly from setting to setting. However, on the stronger settings it’s powerful and quite rumbly. Which is great. Another really nice feature is you can use both ends at the same time. This opens up the possibility of sharing the Ann Summers Flex Rechargeable Wand with your partner.
I found for me the internal end felt stronger than the wand end, which was a little strange. Possibly it’s down to the smaller surface area but the vibrations definitely felt more delicious up this end. Of course, there is nothing to say you can’t use this end on your clit if you prefer.
As suggested by the name the Ann Summers Flex Rechargeable Wand is USB rechargeable and comes with a charging cable. The charge point is a sealed hole is the reverse of the wand. You need to force the jack through the silicone to connect it. This seal allows the Ann Summers Flex Rechargeable Wand to be waterproof.
Something else I noticed quickly about the Ann Summers Flex Rechargeable Wand is how discreet the volume is. There is very little noise even on the higher settings and this is easily disguised under the duvet or by a telly. This is vital for a house with children. Noisy toys are great when you have the house to yourself but they become useless when kids are around.
When using the Ann Summers Flex Rechargeable Wand be careful with your lube choices. The gorgeous silicone coating is only compatible with water-based lubes. If you use silicone lubes you could damage the surface. The silicone, whilst silky is still quite matt in texture and lube is recommended.
During play with the Ann Summers Flex Rechargeable Wand I realised flexibility isn’t always a good thing. The vibrations on the wand end are great for teasing my clit but when it comes to pushing myself into orgasm, I hit a hurdle. I can’t apply the pressure needed due to the Ann Summers Flex Rechargeable Wand bending.
I require a degree of pressure alongside the vibration to hit climax. No matter what I did the head of the wand just flexed into my body. Eventually I realised there is less give on the internal end and started using that. Obviously the flexibility is a big part of the USP of the Ann Summers Flex Rechargeable Wand but for me it’s just a little too flexible. I need some resistance to push back against. When I climax using the internal end my orgasm is strong and reliable. The tapered end allows me to nestle it alongside my clit to great effect.
Internally I found the Ann Summers Flex Rechargeable Wand a little too small and slender. I’d much rather have a dildo to hand and use that alongside the wand clitorally. This is obviously personal opinion but I prefer chunkier toys internally.
I love the idea of the Ann Summers Flex Rechargeable Wand. Multi-purpose toys are great fun. I’d just like a little more resistance in this one. If you were using it with a partner, I can imagine it folding in half between you!
