Some toys are almost legendary. The name alone will send reviewers and consumers into a fit of gushing praise. One such toy is the We-Vibe Tango. Despite always wanting to try the Tango it was one toy which had always alluded me. So, when the amazing people at Forbidden Pleasures offered me the chance to review the We-Vibe Tango Pleasure Mate collection I was very excited.
Straight away from the fuss on my Twitter time line I knew I was dealing with something special. A veritable clutch of fellow bloggers excitedly recounting their experiences with the Tango. The anticipation was massive.
A Box of Fun
The parcel from Forbidden Pleasures arrived fast and with total discretion. The packaging for the We-Vibe Tango Pleasure Mates collection is crisp and modern looking, just text and product pictures. No frills and straight to the point.
The We-Vibe Tango Pleasure Mates collection incorporates the Tango bullet with two silicone toy housings to increase the Tango’s uses. Opening the box, I got my first look at the Tango itself. The Tango included with the We-Vibe Tango Pleasure Mates Collection is white. It looks simple and lifting it from the box I find it hard to believe this little thing can create that amount of fuss.
The shape of the We-Vibe Tango is very much your standard bullet. Its small and slim measuring just 3.5 inches long and 2.5 inches in circumference. It fits in the palm of my hand nicely. The tip of the We-Vibe Tango is angled, giving it a flat side on the front and almost a pointed tip. This gives the We-Vibe Tango that “lipstick vibe” look.
Made of hard ABS plastic the Tango is body safe. The surface of the shaft is smooth and glossy. It doesn’t really look like a sex toy. At the base of the We-Vibe Tango sits the control. A single button nestles between two metal charge connectors.
The vibration of the We-Vibe Tango is legendary, and I was so keen to know what kind of punch this little pocket rocket could deal. I quickly established there was no charge to my Tango so set about sorting this out. The We-Vibe Tango is USB rechargeable and there is a cable included.
When I first picked the cable up I was confused. There was a small paddle like attachment with the cable which you plug it into and this forms the magnetic charge connector. I’m not sure why? Wouldn’t it have been easier to have just made the charger magnetic?
Ok so the charger was ready to use, and it was quite apparent you attach the paddle to the small metal connectors on the bottom. Easy right? Wrong. This charger is the fussiest most pernickety charger in the world. Almost as soon as I put the Tango on my bedside cabinet the charge stopped. The very slight movement had separated the connection.
It took several attempts and some strategic cable shenanigans before I had a solid connection. I realised gravity was pulling the magnetic connection apart as the cable draped off my cabinet. Connection established and the Tango now charging properly I noticed the little charge light. I like it when a toy indicates when its at full charge. And so, I waited for my Tango to be ready.
And I waited and waited. Wow that first charge was seriously long. However, I have recharged my Tango since and it was much shorter so maybe it was just that first charge. Or my impatience. Who knows. Finally, the moment came when I could use the We-Vibe Tango and boy was I ready.
Using the We-Vibe Tango
Because the We-Vibe Tango is made of plastic you can use any lube with it, but I recommend a water-based lube. I slicked a little across my clit and switched the Tango on. At first this was a bit tricky. Pressing the small button on the base did nothing and initially I thought maybe it was broken. Whilst attempting to work out what was going on I pressed my nail into the button and the Tango sprang to life! I do wonder if this is because of the charging elements on the base, perhaps they prevent the button from fully depressing just with your finger tip.
Straight away I was blown away by the vibrations from the We-Vibe Tango. It is seriously rumbly for a little plastic lipstick vibe. Scrolling through the options I counted eight settings. Four steady speeds and four pulse settings. The variety was good, and I decided to start with one of the medium steady settings.
Direct Delivery Clit Stim
The tip of the We-Vibe Tango is great for that direct delivery clit stim. The nice flat surface snuggles next to my clit perfectly and the vibrations feel stunning. The depth of them, from such a small package is ridiculous. The petite size allows me to circle the Tango against the side of my clit with no problem and this leads to dramatic orgasms. Oh, wow the intensity from that little vibe. I could change the setting and carry on getting myself off again and again.
Something I noticed straight away about the We-Vibe Tango is how quiet it is too. Even on its top speeds the Tango is extremely quiet which makes it very usable.
One thing which did hamper my enjoyment of the We-Vibe Tango was the dreaded finger tingle. The strong vibrations seem almost too much for the ABS body to handle and there is some significant vibration transfer. This does eventually make holding the Tango a bit uncomfortable.
The Dusk and Glow
Included with the We-Vibe Tango in the Pleasure Mates Collection are two silicone housings, the Glow and the Dusk. The Glow is a deep pink G spot targeting internal toy. Measuring six inches in length and 4 inches in diameter the Glow is an unusual shape.
A solid body gives way to a slender curved neck leading to a bulbed head. At the base of the Glow is a hole to insert the Tango into. I wasn’t expecting remarkable things from the Glow and it surprised me. I prefer the Tango in the housing. It reduces the vibration transfer and yet the power is still there.
Soft Powdery Silicone
The shape is great for hitting my G Spot. I really loved massaging the silicone head against my G Spot and feeling those hefty vibrations awaken my insides. The Glow is made of silicone so is body safe and non-porous. The silicone is soft and so silky, with almost a powdery texture.
The second housing is the Dusk and without even checking I know just from looking this is an anal toy. The Dusk is made of grey silicone. A small bulbed angled head tapers to a thin slim neck. Where the base would traditionally sit there is a large silicone sleeve to slide the Tango into. This forms the base and allows the Tangos vibrations to both travel through the Dusk and stimulate your perineum.
I really liked using the Dusk, it felt great and the vibrations were very exciting inside me. When I came with the Dusk inside me it made my orgasm so much more intense and strong. The size is a little small for me, but this does make it more universally appealing. Much like the Glow, the Dusk is silky and powdery feeling.
Because the Dusk and Glow are both made of silicone you will need to be careful about your lube choices. Only water based with the We-Vibe Tango Pleasure Mates Collection.
Thinking about summarising for this review I was struck by two things. Firstly, how welcome the addition of the Dusk and Glow was. Considering I wasn’t expecting to care for them much after using the Tango. And secondly how poor the charging facility is on the Tango. That charger is beyond awkward. Add that to the fact the Tango only lasts around an hour and half before it dies and you’re going to be charging it a whole bunch.
I’d expect a company as big as We-Vibe to have addressed this as the Tango is such a well-loved toy. Sort your dodgy charger out We-Vibe please and find a way to give the Tango more life.
The We-Vibe Tango is great for clitoral stimulation. It offers lots of use for foreplay and is perfect to use for additional stimulation during sex. The addition of the Glow and Dusk make the We-Vibe Tango Pleasure Mates Collection a great all-rounder. Something to make everyone cum in one box.
I can honestly say the We-Vibe Tango lives up to its hype. You can buy the We-Vibe Tango Pleasure Mates Collection from Forbidden Pleasures for £72.99 now, reduced from the usual price of £99.00.
