Womanizer 2Go – Sex Toy Review
Ahh, the Womanizer… the toy with what I think is probably world’s most terrible name for a sex toy. Womanizer…Wooooomanizer…. Womaaaaanizer… nope, the name hasn’t grown on me at all, I still cringe when I hear it. Terrible name. Thankfully, the toys they make are not terrible. So when Peepshow Toys asked if I would like the chance to review the latest Womanizer toy, I said “sign me up!” I then quickly googled Womanizer 2Go to see what I was getting myself in to… After looking at pictures of the Womanizer 2Go, for whatever reason I was thinking this toy would be a lot smaller. I think part of the reason is its name, the “2Go,” I mean, with a name like that I kind of figured it would be travel sized. Small, discreet, and ready to be tossed into an overnight bag. I also think the lipstick shape threw me off, usually lipstick vibes try to be…. somewhat more lipstick sized (The Tenga Stick, for example, while not perfect… is at least more believable as a tube of lipstick). I’m tellin’ ya, when I opened up the box and saw the Womanizer 2Go for the first time, I laughed. I laughed and I couldn’t stop laughing (like the ugly snort and choking on spit sort of laughing). This toy really is ridiculous looking.
Never in my life have I thought “you know what would be great? A sex toy that looks like something Carrot Top keeps in his prop chest…. yeah… that’s what I want to masturbate with.” I’ve never thought that, never, not even once… and yet… AND YET… Womanizer (knowing exactly what women crave *cough* electric ear-thermometers with faux gemstones *cough*) knew that this exact idea was what my clitoris was missing. They knew what I really needed was a hilariously oversized lipstick tube. In their infinite sex toy wisdom, they knew that this was exactly the toy we women needed in order to continue orgasming, if it isn’t shaped like a makeup product, how will I know it’s meant for me? (/sarcasm)
Ok, I kind of get the idea behind lipstick vibes… you want something discreet, something that doesn’t look like a sex toy and a tube of lipstick is about as innocuous as it gets, throw it in your purse or makeup bag and no one is any wiser… except when it is the SIZE OF MY FREAKIN’ HAND! As near as I can figure the folks at Womanizer must all be giants. Big, beautiful, Amazonian creatures who all think a lipstick tube the size of my entire hand is totally normal and appropriate. But this is not Themyscira, this is a land of normal sized people and despite what the Womanizer 2Go tries to make me believe, I know there is nothing super discreet about me traveling about with an over-sized lipstick. Either this toy is hilariously too large, or my hands are embarrassingly tiny.
In all fairness, I probably wouldn’t even have thought twice about it’s size if the Womanizer 2Go had any other shape, but because it looks like a lipstick tube and I have certain expectations about the general size of a lipstick tube, which is what makes this toy seem so comically huge. If I can look past that, there is almost something kind of classy about the Womanizer 2Go, in a somewhat cheesy, feminine sort of way. The color combos are nice, you can choose from white, black, or tango green and pink (the hell is ‘tango green?’ can’t we just call it green?) and each color combination comes accented with shiny gold. The white and gold color combination is what is featured in this review, and it isn’t exactly a true white, to me it looks more like a creamy off-white with almost a hint of pink to it.
Up to this point my only other experience with the Womanizer brand has been the now discontinued Womanizer W100, which I really liked but did have a few issues with. So I was pretty eager to give the newest incarnation of the Womanizer a go. Compared to my Womanizer W100, the 2Go seems to be a two steps forward, one step back sort of deal. The Womanizer 2Go does seem much less fiddly. I required much less precision and spent less time positioning the toy than I did with the W1oo. But I found it was harder to hold on to, especially for any longer length of time, it just started to feel awkward and adjusting its speed via the single button on the bottom was a bit of a nuisance.
Speaking of the single control button, to turn the Womanizer 2Go on just hold down the button until it springs to life and power it down the same way. To adjust the speed, push the button, continuing to push the button will cycle you through the Womanizer 2Go’s six intensity levels. When I try a new toy, I usually rev it up to it’s top speed first, I don’t start from the bottom and work my way… oh no. Normally, it takes a toys top speed to bring to me orgasm anyway, so why waste time with that other stuff? I tell you what, the 2Go’s top intensity level was WAY to much for me, hot damn! I started squirming almost instantly, I had to pull the toy away and back it down a few intensity levels. Having that much concentrated magic thumping away at my clit was too much for even me! For those of you who are not yet familiar with the Womanizer, it isn’t exactly a vibrator, it runs on what Womanizer calls “pleasure air technology” which I think is as vague as fuck. So what is Pleasure Air Technology… it’s a fancy ass way of saying suction, more or less. Although, I’m not sure what I feel when using the Womanizer is something I would describe as suction… its more like… tapping. Like tiny elves are gently tapping my clit… and even that is kind of misleading, because as far as I can tell, nothing ever actually comes in contact with my clit. I don’t know, I didn’t fully understand it with the W100 and I still don’t understand this witchcraft with the 2Go. All you really need to know is that it can be intense and it feels REALLY good.
Since the Womanizer is kind of different from most sex toys, here is a quick run down on how to use it. First, you need to spread your labia to expose the clitoris. Say “what’s up clit?!” and give it a tiny high-five, or if you prefer, a tiny fist-bump will also work. Grab your enormous lipstick tube and position the opening over your exposed clit, using light pressure to maintain a tight seal. Should your clit become claustrophobic, reassure it that everything is going to be just fine. Now, turn the Womanizer 2Go on and adjust the settings to your liking. BAM! Orgasm achieved!
For a toy that seems to imply that it is meant to travel, I am kind of bummed that it didn’t include any sort of travel bag or box. The W100 came with a really nifty zippered case that held the toy, the charging cable and the extra heads… If you want to travel with your 2Go you will have to supply your own carrying case. Or bring along the packaging it arrived in. Or just throw the cable and extra head into your makeup bag and hope you can find them later.
Unlike my W100 model, the Womanizer 2Go IS waterproof. Which makes cleaning super easy. Remove the silicone head attachment and give it a good wash, it can be boiled if that is your preferred method of dealing with silicone. According to the manual, the base of the toy can be submerged in warm water and the device switched on and ran at the highest intensity level for 1 minute to clean it out. Then shake it out until the terrifying gurgling noise stops. Or, if you are less adventurous (and lazy, like me) you can also use a cotton swab dipped in your preferred cleaning solution to give the inside a quick once over.
The Womanizer 2Go is rechargeable! When the toy arrives, it arrives partially charged… thank God, I have no patience and like when I can use a toy straight from the box. But, eventually that partial charge wears off, so you’ll need to locate the included USB charging cable at the bottom on the packaging, underneath the plastic insert the toy sat in. Plug USB cable into the bottom of the toy It takes about two hours for the Womanizer 2Go to fully charge, once fully charged you can expect to get about 4 hours of playtime out of it (nice!)… this could be a little less, depending on which intensity level you select. While charging the toy will flash green, once it is fully charged this indication light will remain constant. Also, if you have arrived at this review because you googled “My Womanizer 2Go is getting hot while charging, is this normal?” The answer is yet. The Womanizer 2Go does heat up while it charges and you do not need to panic. However, if your Womanizer 2Go is heating up because it is on fire, then yes… panic.
My only other real complaint about the Womanizer 2Go is the price. I was really hoping that this latest toy from Womanizer would bring the price down, after all their competitor the Satisfyer has toys at about half the price! But alas, the Womanizer 2Go carries the hefty Womanizer price tag. With a higher price point, is the Womanizer somehow better than the Satisfyer? It’s hard to say, I thought the Satisfyer Pro Penguin worked every bet as well as my W100… but I did have issues with the silicone head constantly popping off the base any time I adjusted the toy, annoying… and more than once I thought I had lost the head for good when it went rolling across the floor and nearly down an air vent. So, maybe there is some construction quality difference? I don’t know, I honestly couldn’t tell you one way or another without testing out more models from either company. Right now, the best I can say is that it is sort of like the Coke vs Pepsi debate… everyone has a favorite and has some random reason why they can’t stand the other. Me, I like both Coke and Pepsi and have enjoyed both the Womanizer and Satisfyer. But man… that price makes it hard to order a Womanizer over a Satisfyer…
I can’t completely turn my nose up at this toy, because, even with a dumb name and its questionable clown accessory aesthetic, the Womanizer 2Go does actually work for me and works very well. I’m always just a little bit amazed by how quickly it can bring me from zero to orgasm, its is literally effortless. Once I figured out which intensity level I liked best, the toy becomes just a set it and forget it sort of deal, Turn it on, find my setting, push it against clit and wait to orgasm. I really hate jumping on bandwagons, but the Womanizer really is kind of awesome. If you don’t mind your sex toys looking like something that fell out of the 50ft woman’s makeup bag… the Womanizer 2Go is a great choice. I truly did enjoy the toy, the aesthetics of it however are not exactly my thing and I kind of wish the could have chosen another shape… like a tiny wine bottle or and enormous bar of chocolate.

P.S. Is it just me or does the “W” logo on this toy look suspiciously like the Walgreens logo…
