We-Vibe Tango – Sex Toy Review
The We-Vibe Tango is another one of those toys that I feel like every blogger has reviewed, just give it a quick google and you will see that there is no great shortage of Tango reviews on the world wide web. But, it is one of those toys that is just so awesome that it deserves blog post after blog post singing its praises (and pointing out a few of its flaws). And sure, I may be a little late to the Tango party, but that won’t stop me from sharing just how totally awesome I think this little bullet vibe is!
First off, just look how small the We-Vibe Tango is. So tiny, not much bigger than a lipstick. How can something so small pack so much rumbling power? Witchcraft is the obvious answer.
The body of the We-Vibe Tango is made from a glossy ABS plastic, while part of me longs for plush silicone, I know it is the hard plastic body that allows the vibrations to come through with such clarity, a silicone buffer would just muffle it., making it feel weaker then it is. So, while not quite as luxurious as a silky-smooth silicone, ABS plastic is still a body safe option, and the Tango makes good use of it.
The Tango is an external vibe, with a tip that’s a slanted flat surface that comes to a point (kind of like some lipsticks), the point is great for pinpoint stimulation, and when that gets to be too much, I like to turn it back onto its flat side and ease off a bit, giving the rest of my vulva a rub while giving my clit a breather. It has four steady vibration intensities and four vibration patterns. The vibration patterns aren’t anything mind blowing, I usually skip past them, but they do add some interesting alternatives if you don’t like the steady, monotonous speeds. And, because the We-Vibe Tango is so small, it doesn’t really have a handle to grip, so I find my hands get pretty numb and tingly after use. Vibrator hands. You know what I’m talking about…
Another great thing about the Tango is that it can be used to replace all those weak, shitty, watch battery bullet vibes that come with a lot of vibrating dildos and butt plugs. Another option if you are really craving to feel the Tango’s vibrations internally is to snag one of the Pleasure Mate accessories, made for the Tango, Glow turns the little vibe into instertable toy for targeted G-spot stimulation and Dusk turns the Tango into vibrating butt plug complete with stimulation along perineum as it vibrates!
The We-Vibe Tango isn’t without its flaws though (Booo! Hiss!). The battery life on this little fellow is a bit of a let down, the manufacture claims the Tango has a two hour battery life, but it seems to only last about one hour or less if I’m really flipping through the vibration settings rapidly. This isn’t a huge deal if your play sessions don’t last that long, or you aren’t depending solely on the Tango to achieve orgasm. In general, I don’t find I need the Tango for two hours straight, so I just keep it on the charger when not in use.
Speaking of the charger, that is the other issue I have with the Tango. Instead of plugging securely into the toy, the charging cable attaches magnetically. While I think this is totally a neat idea, I’m frustrated by how weak the magnetic attachment actually is. Once you attach the toy and the charger together, you have to set it down VERY CAREFULLY otherwise off pops the charger. Likewise, any accidental bump of the toy or the surface it rests on causes a disconnect more often than not. I’ve been told by other Tango owners that this reincarnation of the Tango has a stronger magnetic base then its predecessor, but I still find this one to be a bit finicky and frustrating. Also, it charges via USB, so like the Holy Cow! Wand and the Womanizer I reviewed before this, you either need to have a USB wall charger on hand, or be okay with having a sex toy hang out of your computer for an hour or so while you charge up.
Okay, while we are on the subject of flaws, there is one more itty-bitty thing I would change about the Tango. I hate its one button interface. When I am masturbating with a vibe, I like to cycle up and down through the speeds, easing off when I get too close… but, with this one button interface, depending on where I am at in the speed settings, I have to cycle through the remaining intensities AND through the four vibration patterns before I end up back at the lowest intensity setting. I know, I know, the Tango is small and there is only so much room… but it really is maddening.
Do I recommend the We-Vibe Tango? I think you can guess the answer to that question.. That would be a resounding HELL YEAH! At least, if a strong, rumbling, pocket-sized vibe is what you are looking for. If you have a sensitive clit, you may find direct stimulation with the Tango a little overwhelming, even at its lowest setting the Tango still packs a fair punch. If you are looking for something discreet, the Tango is not only small, but it is also surprisingly quiet. The Tango is also extremely portable, although there is no travel lock, but I find it extremely unlikely that anything is going to hit the small button at the base with enough force to start it vibrating in your purse or suitcase.
