We-Vibe Tango review: most powerful bullet vibrator
The We-Vibe Tango is nearly universally lauded among sex bloggers as the most powerful clitoral vibrator of its size class. The power of even the lowest setting baffles my friends. It sounds like firecrackers when I put it in a bowl for it to bounce around in.
The Tango lives up to every claim made of its legendary, clit-rattling rumble. It’s a quality toy, that power queens will love, but was just too much for my clitoris back in 2015. Now, years after I initially tried it, I have much more appreciation for it.
When do I enjoy using the We-Vibe Tango?
It’s a reliable bullet for taking me from 0 to 65 very quickly. Even when I’m not in the mood, I can turn up the Tango and use it through my panties and finish in less than a minute. Even if I’m tired or angry or sad, I can quickly clear my mind enough to come with the Tango.
And every single time, it’s incredible. Even when masturbating in the laziest way possible, lying on my back with just the Tango on stationary on my clit, my tits happily flop around as my body shakes uncontrollably and I catch my breath. The orgasm is one-and-done, but it’s a very satisfying one-and-done.
Paired with the more directly G-spotty njoy Pure Wand, the Tango’s intensity balances out the aggressive pounding and takes the edge off.
It’s also the perfect bullet to insert in the bullet cavity of one of my favorite dildos of all time, making the G-spotting even more intense. I love the Tango’s power combined with its Pulse setting for internal vibrations. The pattern gives it a sense of throbbing and movement, more exciting to me than a steady speed.
But that doesn’t mean it’s always my vibrator of choice.
About half the time I use it, it’s just too painful after the first orgasm.
When it comes to clitoral stimulation, I’ve come to expect a certain kind of orgasm: multiple consecutive orgasms that build on to each other and ebb and flow practically continuously. This can happen with a finger or low to moderate settings on other rechargeable vibes.
The non-stop whimpering and shaking for continuous minutes happens on ~half of the occasions I use the We-Vibe Tango. The orgasms are amazing if there’s more than one, but it’s not exactly the most reliable toy for that purpose because of its relentless power and hard body.
The We-Vibe Tango has 4 steady speeds, 4 patterns, and 1 button
To switch back down to a lower speed, you have to press the button up to 8 times and cycle through aaaaall of the pattern settings. Having a “down” button would be nice.
I get it: some people like how simple it is to have one button. For me, though, it can be an issue immediately after the first orgasm when my clitoris is sensitive. At that point, it still likes pressure, but not so much speed. It’s important to me I can turn the speed up and down as desired and reduce the refractory time between orgasms.
I’d also like to see either fewer patterns or at least have patterns that didn’t incorporate such drastic dips in power. Three of the four patterns are useless for that reason.
Should you get the Tango?
If you want a powerful and discreet vibe, the Tango is for you. It’s pretty much the rumbliest thing you can get in such a small package. And I can readily look past the annoying patterns if it means $80 for quickie orgasms galore.
However, if you want something you can more easily control, add the LELO Mia to your wish list. If you wish for a pinpoint clit vibe that costs less, get a Marvelous Flicker. If you want a wider speed range, get a BMS Factory Pillow Talk Sassy.
Lastly, bear in mind that I’m a casual user of the Tango— 1 minute is plenty to reach the first orgasm for me. If you’re a power queen, you might get a mere 30-50 minutes of play from one full charge. However, since the We-Vibe Tango is the only clitoral mini-vibe this rumbly, you might need less time than usual to orgasm than with other vibrators.
Many swear by their Tangos and take the battery life in stride by buying a back-up Tango (available for $80 to use in case of depletion. It’s that kind of love and compromise, and it’s worth it to them, but the Tango is not for everybody.
