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.
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. (If you can get off in under 2 minutes with a finger, this bullet might make you cry.)
Nowadays, though, I fully appreciate why it’s the gold standard: because it channels nearly wand-level power into a small, pinpointed package. Four years have passed since I originally wrote this review, but the We-Vibe Tango is timelessly god tier. It is to bullets what the Magic Wand is to massagers.
Why do I enjoy using the We-Vibe Tango?
It’s still the ultimate when it comes to high-amplitude power. Yes, there are many zingy and high-speed bullets, but the Tango starts low-pitched with a big range of motion. The hard plastic shell transfers that thuddy movement well. Yes, the inexpensive Blush Exposed Nocturnal has surpassed the Tango in its amount of power. But when it comes to ample quality vibration, the We-Vibe Tango is almost unbeatable. It’s the bullet that all other bullets are compared to.
The We-Vibe Tango is a surefire way to take me from 0 to 100 very quickly, any day. 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. And every single time, it’s incredible. Even when masturbating in the laziest way possible, lying on my back with the We-Vibe Tango stationary on my clit, my body shakes uncontrollably. And considering how vital penetration is to me, that’s saying a lot. The orgasm is one-and-done for my featherweight clit, but it’s a very satisfying one-and-done.
When I pair it with the 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.
Does anything else compare to the We-Vibe Tango’s rumble?
I did mention before that the We-Vibe Tango was almost unbeatable. As a pinpoint princess, I do prefer the oscillating Zumio S, whose tiny tip revolves in circles, rather than shifting in pressure like a conventional vibrator. As far as bullet vibrators proper go, though, We-Vibe has only one close contender: Hot Octopuss and their Digit.
On half of the occasions I use the We-Vibe Tango, I feel the non-stop whimpering and shaking for continuous minutes. The climaxes are amazing if there’s more than one. However, it’s not exactly the most reliable toy for multiple orgasms because of its relentless power and hard plastic body.
About half the time I use the Tango, it’s just too painful after the first orgasm. Such isn’t the case with the Hot Octopuss Amo, despite having similarly rumbly power. Why? Because the Amo has not one, not two, but three buttons. I can immediately turn the speed down after orgasm, when my clitoris enjoys the pressure, but not that much vibration. To switch back down to a lower intensity on the Tango, you have to press the button up to 8 times and cycle through aaaaall of the settings (four speeds, four patterns.
The rumbliest Tango alternative I’ve tried is the BMS Mini Swan Rose. It’s more powerful than the Amo, but I wasn’t that thrilled about its one-button control and less-defined tip.
Should you get the We-Vibe Tango?
If you want a powerful and discreet vibe, the Tango is for you. It’s the rumbliest bullet you can get in such a small package. But that’s not the ultimate deciding factor for some users, including me. If you want something you can more easily control, add the Hot Octopuss Amo to your wish list. If you wish for a bullet-style vibrator that costs significantly less, get a Blush Exposed Nocturnal or BMS Mini Swan Rose.
How much do other reviewers worship their Tangos, though? Many swear by them and buy multiple back-up We-Vibe Tangos in case of battery depletion. It’s that kind of love.
