California Exotics Embrace G Wand review: triple motor rechargeable vibrator
The California Exotics Embrace G Wand covers all bases: effectively voluptuous form, vibration range, and variety. Just the shape would have been enough for me, but the vibrations take it to the next level. It's like having your cake and eating it, too.
Buttery-smooth silicone covers 3 (yes, THREE) motors. One motor is in the 1.5" diameter bulb, one in its flexible 1" diameter shaft, and one in the clitoral bump. The vibrations are not Hitachi-level powerful as the "wand" part of the name might suggest. They're moderately rumbly. The three motors feature 6 speeds, with 1 steady function and 6 patterns of pulsation and escalation each. There are a total of 42 combinations.
Shape and design of the CalEx Embrace G Wand
The California Exotics Embrace G Wand's curve is deliciously ample and full for G‑spot thrusting. The shaft is flexible, making it a less intense alternative if you find the Jopen Comet Wand or njoy Pure Wand's rigid build unforgiving. However, it's bulbous enough that if you don't already know where your G‑spot is, you're still very likely to find it with this vibrator if you tilt the handle back. The happy medium is adequate but not quite unrelenting.
I can take advantage of the 3 motors because my clitoris is close enough to my vagina and my G‑spot is relatively shallow. Your mileage may vary. The Embrace G Wand is decidedly not a dual stimulator for those with deep G‑spots or with clit-vag gaps longer than 1.5". I wouldn't have recommended it for that purpose anyway, because I feel like that would distract you from the star of the show: the bulbous G‑spot head.
This toy can't do everything, but it can do a lot of things well. With my build, I can use this toy for intense G‑spot thrusting, or to have something filling deliver internal and external vibrations. I can't combine G‑spot pressure and clitoral vibrations simultaneously with this toy.
To get pressure on my G‑spot, I'd be inserting too little of the shaft and tilting the handle too far back for my clit to touch the hump. However, since the shaft is flexible, I can insert the shaft deeper and push the handle up toward my clit.
First things first: the steady vibration starts in the middle of the speed range, which I find silly. You can turn it up and down from there with no problem, but be aware of that.
There are three buttons: two to turn the intensity up/down, and one to turn the toy on/off and toggle through the settings. The patterns switch from the innermost motor to the shaft motor to the clit bump:
- Steady vibration in all three motors
- Tip, shaft, bump alternating slow
- Tip, shaft, bump alternating medium
- Tip, shaft, bump alternating fast
- Two short pulses, one long pulse, all three motors in unison
- Waves of gradual escalation and decline, split time / out of phase
- Short pulses, all three motors in unison
I like using the fast alternations and pulses for stationary dual stimulation, while the slow switches add "oomph" when G‑spot thrusting. The bottom to middle steady speed settings work best for me externally, and the tight controls mean I can turn the speed up and down as needed.
The low to middle settings give me a beautiful, almost continuous orgasm plateau when used externally. When just using it on my clit, I orgasm continuously back-to-back and want to turn the intensity way down and then up a bit. Internally, it doesn't just make me insta-cum; its bulbousness gives me something to clench around during orgasm. Clenching perpetuates the orgasms longer with every contraction.
Overall verdict on the Embrace G Wand
As a vibrator, the Embrace G Wand is a good fit for me. While the dimensions are anatomy-specific, the toy is robust, unique, and versatile enough to recommend to a range of people. Whether they're new to the expansive world of sex toys, or are familiar and looking for something a little different, this is something to consider.
Would recommend to those...
- seeking range and moderate power
- who like internal vibrations
- who love or want to try patterns
- who like G‑spot or prostate toys in general
- who have a c‑v gap less than 1.5"
- new to sex toys
Would not recommend to those looking for...
- G‑spot pressure and clit pressure from the same toy. Consider the We-Vibe Nova for that.
- Pinpoint clitoral stimulation.
- A lot of power. Consider the BMS Factory Swan Wand.
For all three categories, if you have a bigger budget, you want to consider getting a LELO Mona 2 instead. Its vibrations are stronger than the Embrace G's, the body is made of rigid ABS plastic throughout, and the tip is pointy.
Ultimately, though, the Embrace G Wand is so unique for its price range that I wouldn't dream of replacing it with the other toys I suggested.
I'm glad you like this one. I thought it was pretty great too. Thanks for the mention.
