Review: Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen Rumbly Thumping Wand

Thuddy AF thumping competing with the gold standard of rechargeable wands
Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen oscillating clitoral massager with Pulse Plate Technology™

Hot Octopuss's Pulse Queen com­bines wand-​level pow­er with a point for more focused pussy-​pounding. Rather than using the typ­i­cal spin­ning weight, its motor puls­es back and forth for seis­mic sen­sa­tions that throb and shake the exter­nal and inter­nal cli­toris.

It's undoubt­ed­ly made for rum­ble roy­al­ty — but to what extent?

The Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen reigns its sub­sec­tor of strong vibra­tors and right­ful­ly lives up to its lux­u­ry label — indeed, it's one of the best vibra­tors I've ever tried.

Think of it as occu­py­ing its right­ful ter­ri­to­ry rather than out­right over­throw­ing the likes of:

Pulse Queen Shape, Scope, and Size

Think of the Pulse Queen as an upgrade to the Hot Octopuss Queen Bee. In addi­tion to the potent Pulse Plate Technology™, the Pulse Queen's sil­hou­ette strik­ing­ly stands out from full-​sized wand massagers:

  • Its cushy sil­i­cone head con­verges to a dis­tinct peak, like a hill
  • It's more com­pact, mea­sur­ing just over 7 inch­es long by 2 inch­es wide 
    • Memories of hair­brush han­dles, anyone?
  • It's super light­weight, at just over six ounces
  • The stur­dy back edge makes it great for light strad­dling and hands-​free humping

How Does the Pulse Queen Feel In Use?

Its oscil­la­tion is over­whelm­ing — the focused apex digs right into my clit effort­less­ly, like a mis­sile of mass seduc­tion. Vibration doesn't even begin to describe it!

Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen Oscillation Quality

Again, "pound­ing" is the more accu­rate term, push­ing back and forth with the speed of a machine and almost the depth of fin­gers against a doorbell.

I'm cum­ming again and again on the Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen. And yet, I'm in con­trol if I want to be — its but­tons allow more straight­for­ward nav­i­ga­tion of the speed set­tings than most vibra­tors I've tried. And plen­ty of options are avail­able for when I'm feel­ing sensitive.

So yes, it pum­mels my pussy — if I want.

The Pulse Queen more than pleas­es this pil­low princess — it rock­ets me to anoth­er sov­er­eign state of ela­tion. (I hope "cum king­dom" isn't overused yet!)

What's the Downside to the Pulse Queen?

Despite its cunt-​commanding pres­ence, it's not perfect.

It's hard to com­pare the Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen to oth­er wands because — like many oth­er cli­toral thumpers — it's so sen­si­tive to pres­sure. Wand mas­sagers will damp­en but gen­er­al­ly keep on keep­ing on when you crush it against you. Meanwhile, the Pulse Queen will stall and some­times stop mov­ing entirely.

That draw­back is not enough to both­er me; there's a super sur­plus of pin­point pow­er to over­whelm me — with­out that much pressure.

But if you're the type to expect opti­mal per­for­mance under duress, don't get the Pulse Queen. And yes, you can ride it — but don't low­er much of your weight on it.

If you're still think­ing, "GIMME GIMME MORE POWER," take the next sec­tion with a grain of salt.

Strength Comparison to Other Wands

I'm com­par­ing the Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen with mod­er­ate pres­sure to the oth­er mas­sagers at the max­i­mum com­fort­able pres­sure for me. It's only fair — if you're get­ting a wand, you might be doing things that it can han­dle, but the Pulse Queen can't.

Here's how the Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen mea­sures up:

  • Its high­est speed is just a hair above the Magic Wand Rechargeable's 3rd speed out of 4
  • It's about a 3 out of 5 com­pared to the Fun Factory Vim at max­i­mum pressure
  • It's way rum­bli­er than the Doxy Die Cast but can't mea­sure up in absolute strength

(Bear in mind that the Magic Wand Rechargeable's inten­si­ties are more spaced apart — the Fun Factory Vim's high­est speed is just below the Magic Wand Rechargeable's.)

Vibrator Strength vs. Rumbliness Levels

And that brings me to anoth­er rea­son it's so hard to quan­ti­fy which wand-​style mas­sager is more pow­er­ful — their vibra­tion qual­i­ties all feel very different!

There's vibra­tion strength, and then there's rum­ble. If I had to define the dif­fer­ence, it's that:

  • Rumbly vibra­tors feel deep­er with more weight — often with­out rely­ing on speed as much 
    • Think of a low wob­ble bass's reverberation
  • Strong vibra­tors can feel intense with vary­ing com­bi­na­tions of depth and speed
  • A shal­low, fast vibra­tor is what we call "buzzy," like a tee­ny mos­qui­to in one's ear

Ultimately, vibra­tion strength and rum­bli­ness are up to per­son­al pref­er­ence. For the absolute pow­er sluts, I'll com­pare the top speeds here. And for those who want some sub­tle options, I'll dis­cuss the set­tings and con­trols in a lat­er section.

Strength and Rumble Rankings

If I had to rank my strongest vibra­tors by absolute intensity:

  • The Doxy Die Cast is the strongest
  • The Magic Wand Rechargeable is a far second
  • Fun Factory's Vim is a close third
  • Hot Octopuss's Pulse Queen is still suu­u­u­u­per strong, but not as much as the others

Their rum­bli­ness rank­ings are reversed:

  • The Pulse Queen is the rumbliest
  • Fun Factory's Vim is up next
  • Then, the Magic Wand Rechargeable
  • Then, the Doxy Die Cast's high­er frequencies 
    • It's still way bet­ter than the Magic Wand Original, though!

Again, with the Pulse Queen, you're get­ting less absolute inten­si­ty but more depth and focus — which might feel over­whelm­ing­ly, orgasm-​forcingly pow­er­ful all the same!

Controls, Settings, and Charging

Though Hot Octopuss's Pulse Queen out­right ham­mers my clit at its high­est set­ting, you can still ramp up a leisure­ly journey.

This lux­u­ry mas­sager features:

  • Nine speed set­tings, from "I just nut­ted and need to turn this way down" to "WHAM-​BAM!"
  • Seven vibra­tion pat­terns — enjoy your edg­ing experience
  • Three but­tons for easy con­trol, what­ev­er mood you're in
  • Up to 40 min­utes of con­tin­u­ous play­time on 150 min­utes of charging

If you're into the "Morse code" type set­tings, here's a summary:

  • Patterns 1–3: three options for rhyth­mic puls­es of vary­ing lengths
  • Pattern 4: three short puls­es and one long pulse — 1–2‑3–444444‑1–2‑3–4444
  • Pattern 5: two short puls­es fol­lowed by a pause — 1–2‑pause‑1–2‑pause
  • Patterns 6 and 7: low-​to-​high-​to-​low thrums of dif­fer­ent lengths

I'd use the steady speeds the most by far and mix it up with pat­terns 1, 2, 3, and 6.

Which Rumbly Vibrator Should You Get?

There's no such thing as a per­fect vibra­tor — but you can get the per­fect one for your pref­er­ences. Here's a recap of the Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen's pros and cons and a few oth­er pow­er­ful vibra­tors to consider.

Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen Pros and Cons

Here's what I love about the Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen, in a nutshell:

  • It's super rumbly with its per­cus­sive pound­ing — feel­ing deep­er than most wands
  • It's pow­er­ful, with more pin­point focus on my clit or a partner's frenu­lum than a wand
  • The 3 but­tons make it easy-​breezy to click through and cus­tomize your orgas­mic journey
  • Nine speed set­tings, from "I just nut­ted and need to turn this way down" to "WHAM-​BAM!"
  • It's light­weight and easy to maneu­ver and position
  • Unlike most wands, it's water­proof and submersible!

What you might not love about the Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen is:

  • It stalls eas­i­ly under pres­sure, as with most puls­ing vibrators
  • Because of the pre­vi­ous point, you can't place much weight on it when riding
  • You won't get to mas­sage your whole vul­va with it
  • It's not quite as strong as full-​on wand vibrators

But its inten­si­ty is def­i­nite­ly up there, and if it's rum­ble you're after, the Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen is more than enough! It also costs less than full-​on wands, with the trade-​off of more thud for less versatility.

Summary & Closing Thoughts

If you're the kind of per­son who appre­ci­ates a rumbly vibra­tor and you don't need to total­ly crush it against your cunt, then this is the vibe for you.

Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen pulsing oscillating vulva massaging wand

The Hot Octopuss Pulse Queen is a pow­er­ful vibra­tor with a unique puls­ing motor, offer­ing oscil­la­tions in a league all its own. It also stands out for its:

  • Lightweight, com­pact design
  • Easy-​to-​use controls
  • Nine speed set­tings and sev­en vibra­tion patterns

However, if you press too hard, it might stall, and it's less ver­sa­tile than full-​sized wand mas­sagers. However, its next-​level inten­si­ty means that I'd nev­er actu­al­ly push that hard any­way. Despite the draw­backs, its deep oscil­la­tions are a game-​changer for its soul­mate user.

    Thank you for this review—and for the (albeit brief) mention—of its poten­tial for use on the penile frenulum.

    BIG TIME Vim fan here (I bought two after read­ing your super­heat­ed review!) so I could always have one ful­ly charged up for those extend­ed prostate edg­ing sesh’s) and use Vim most­ly for per­ineal and exter­nal but­t­hole stim, which sends my prostate into a quiv­er­ing, pul­sat­ing cum-​squirting frenzy.

    I not­ed your advis­ing cau­tion for those want­i­ng to sit on the PQ, some­thing of a “bum­mer” for my intend­ed use case, though as I’ve tak­en to using a foam “seat cush­ion” with a hol­lowed out cen­ter, which pro­vides a good dip allow­ing thigh-​supported butt rocking/​riding, 🤞🏻in the hope that this would keep weight-​induced stalling of the PQ to a minimum.

    Whaddya think?

    • A seat or some sup­port­ed ele­va­tion could cer­tain­ly help if you get it just right! Totally up to you how much you'd want to finesse and refine posi­tion­ing. I per­son­al­ly wouldn't, though.

    Hoooly shit. I've nev­er found a "too much" in rum­ble. The Vim is my favourite vibe ever, but I nev­er go past speed 3. Also this is the best colour. I don't think I've ever decid­ed to buy a toy this fast in my life. Hoping it'll just posi­tion itself in my pants, because I gen­er­al­ly don't take them off, but if I can man­age that with the Vim in skin­ny jeans, I can make any­thing work lol

    HOLY SHIT I WANT THIS THING. I was hes­i­tat­ing buy­ing the Vim because it's so huge, and i rarely get my Doxy Original out because i don't usu­al­ly need the whole vul­va mas­sage (+it's huge), and i don't need much pres­sure. Damn. These gifs where you put it against water lit­er­al­ly made me gasp.
    The only thing. May i ask how do you find it's loud­ness against the Lovense Domi 2? It seems like the size is pret­ty sim­i­lar and the sound of Pulse Queen is a lit­tle bet­ter (not as high-pitched\screeching like domi), but i'm not sure if it's fair to judge from just the video lol.
