Doxy Number 3 – Sex Toy Review
You know what’s fun? When things that are normally big come in smaller sizes… you know, like fun sized candy bars, dwarf goats, mini muffins… pint sized vibrating wands. I can’t help myself, I love smaller versions of things. So, naturally when I learned that Doxy was making a smaller version of its already much beloved Doxy Wand I was thrilled. I was doubly thrilled when Peepshow Toys asked if I would like to review the Doxy Number 3 for them… umm… let me think about it… HELLZ YEAH I WILL!
When the itty bitty baby Doxy arrived I tore into the packaging and squeed! It’s so small! … Ok, it’s actually only small when compared to the Doxy or Doxy Die Cast… it’s still a relatively large toy when compared to many other vibrating wands on currently on the market. But, when you are used to wielding the huge honkin’ original Doxy or Magic Wand daily… the Doxy Number 3 seems positively miniscule.From tip to tail the Doxy Number 3 is about 11 inches while the Die Cast and the original Doxy are about 15 inches. That is a whopping 4 inch difference between them! It also is so much lighter! The Doxy Number 3 is a totally manageable 12 ounces, which feels almost like masturbating with a feather when compared to the far weightier 30(ish) ounce Doxy Die Cast!
When it comes to powerful vibrating wands there are two that I currently recommend pretty much constantly – the Magic Wand and the Doxy. These bad boys (Bad girls? Bad toys?) are my go-to wands. I literally have one (or both) of these wands plugged in and at the ready at the side of my bed at all times. I want to masturbate myself into a quivering pile of jelly at a moments notice. As awesome as this may sound, it does have some drawbacks… such as… I never have any free outlet space to charge my phone, also these wands are huge and are a major tripping hazard if I don’t tuck them away under the bed. Yes, I have tripped over vibrating wands, crashed into the floor, and skinned my knee bad enough it bled… Don’t judge, it’s happened to all of us, I’m sure… With this in mind, I’ve been loving the somewhat more compact size of the Doxy Number 3, there is much less toy to trip over. The Doxy Number 3 actually fits into the cupboard of my beside table, instead of having to be leaned up against it, the Doxy Number 3 also fits into my over night bag… where as the original Doxy does not and I always have to find somewhat more creative ways of hauling it around in public… “What am I holding? It’s just a rolled up beach towel with absolutely nothing inside of it I’m hiding. Duh.” It also light enough that it doesn’t require that my partner (or myself) warm up and stretch like Olympic weight lifters before wielding it. So, I guess what I’m trying to say is that if nothing else, the Doxy Number 3 really has it’s more compact size going for it.
In the looks department, the Doxy Number 3 looks more or less like a smaller version of the Doxy Die Cast wand. Like the Die Cast the Number 3’s body is made of an aluminum and titanium alloy casing (LIKE A ROBOT). It is then polished to a shiny, metallic finish (THAT LOOKS LIKE A ROBOT) that really makes the toy look like something (ROBOTIC) ultra expensive and super fancy (ROBOT) or maybe a little bit like Bender. Where it differs from the Doxy Die Cast (besides size) is the head, instead of a big bulbous head, the Number 3 has kind of a stunted, domed shaped head. Unlike the original Doxy wand, both the Doxy Number 3 and the Doxy Die Cast have silicone covered heads but the Doxy Number 3 head goes one step further in it’s awesomeness and is removable! Yep, the whole head of the Number 3 can be unscrewed for easy clean up, which is awesome, as cleaning the larger Doxy wands can be a bit of a hassle (I constantly worry I’ll electrocute myself… even though I don’t have them plugged in while cleaning… I am an anxious person and live in constant fear of EVERYTHING).
At first, I was a little concerned the Doxy Number 3 wasn’t going to do it for me, we didn’t have the same instant connection that I did with the original Doxy. With the original Doxy I plop that sucker down onto my clit (well, the head is so big its more like my clit and the surrounding real estate) and I’m orgasming within seconds. With the Doxy Number 3 I plopped it down and…. nothing. I mean, it felt good… but it wasn’t mind-blowingly amazing… which is what I had come to expect out of my other two Doxy wands. I tried ramping it up to its top speeds and still I was feeling underwhelmed. After a few minutes of this I was about to call the Doxy Number 3 a wash. But before I gave up I decided to play with placement, I started holding moving the head in angles I don’t normally use with my original Doxy with its enormous head. When I’m masturbating with the original Doxy or the Die Cast I end up holding the whole toy closer to my body, with the head more or less laying kind of flat and the broad head vibrating everything it touches. With the Number 3 I found I had to hold it at an angle to really get that small head to hit where I needed. I also found that it took me much longer to reach an orgasm (even with the intensity kicked into top gear) with the Number 3, which I’m going to guess has something to do with the smaller head and having less coverage with the vibrations. This isn’t a deal breaker, it just means I have to fool around with the Number 3 and find where and how it works for me. Once I did find that sweet spot though, I was golden.
In the name of science I plugged in all three of my Doxy wands and vibrated the hell out of my genitals while I compared the vibration quality of each toy. This may all just be subjective, but I think the quality of vibrations with the original Doxy is the best. It is my favorite wand, its the wand that gives me the most free flowing orgasms. The Die Cast is probably more thuddy, but I really feel like the original maybe hits a higher intensity… or maybe I just like the vaguely buzzy quality about it? The Doxy Number 3 is very close to both of its predecessors in vibration quality, I don’t think it possesses that same uber-thuddyness I feel in the Die Cast but it’s still awesome. It more or less has the quality of vibrations that I’ve come to expect out of a Doxy, and even though it is “mini” it is every bit as good as its larger counter parts.
Controlling the Doxy Number 3 is exactly the same as the Doxy models before it. On the body of the wand are three buttons, each back lit with an LED light. The power button at the top of the wand turns the Doxy on and off or if you press down and hold you can access the wands pulse function (which I never use). Then there are the (+) and (-) buttons which will cycle you up and down through the wands settings. The Doxy Number 3 has an excellent memory function, which means it will remember the last setting you used for the next time you turn your wand on! This is awesome, because I have a favorite setting and I like being able to turn my wand on and already be right there!
I sort of wish that the Doxy Number 3 came in other color options, the silver metal really looks too industrial for me. It kind of looks cold and unwelcoming… robotic even. It’s quite pretty but also somehow… institutional looking. Perhaps in the future Doxy will give it the same color options as the Die Cast (my Die Cast is a beautiful, drool-worthy shade of purple). But if this is my only real complaint, that’s pretty good.
Even though the Doxy Number 3 is an amazing little wand with a hell of a lot going for it, I don’t think it will be replacing the larger Doxy models for me… at least when I’m masturbating solo. I’m just not a big fan of that small domed head, I feel like it is harder for me to find the “sweet spot” and when I’m reaching for a wand it’s usually because I want a super fast orgasm that I don’t have to think about, I like being able to plop the wand head down and lay back while the orgasms wash over me. However, if I have partner playing with me that seems to be a different story, in this situation I don’t mind the Number 3, it is easier to fit the smaller body between me and a partner who is on top or it’s pretty great when my partner is in control of the wand. But the Doxy Number 3 is a solid, high-quality wand that would be an amazing addition to anyone’s sex toy collection! It’s a pricy wand (although cheaper than the Die Cast) but it is definitely worth it, I love all my Doxy wands and the Number 3 is a nice addition to my collection.
