The bestselling Hitachi vibrator

There's one Hitachi product you won't see mentioned by Hitachi at any conventions or in any catalogs that display their awesome range of goods. It’s the Hitachi Magic Wand vibrator – otherwise known simply as the Hitachi vibrator.

Visitors to Hitachi get the full guided tour and are told about their many achievements including the successful running nuclear power stations (they may be keeping a bit more low profile about that in the current climate!) to the famous bullet train to supercomputers, servers, and sensors for nappies, but here is no word uttered about one of their best sellers the ever reliable Hitachi vibrating sex toy.

The Hitachi Vibrator - from aching to longing

This female sex toy – or Magic Wand as Hitachi would much rather you call it - was introduced in all innocence in the 70s purely as a device for offering excellent relief from aching muscles and sore backs. As a massager of soft tissue to get rid of aches and pains it’s superb.

Inevitably, some naughty ladies, perhaps while massaging the aching bodies of their overworked husbands, began to dream up another form of massage at which the Magic Wand could excel. And excel it certainly does. In timed sessions, some ladies can go from stone cold unaroused to screaming orgasm in less than 25 seconds.

Please don’t let anyone tell you that the alternative use for the Hitachi Magic Wand was discovered by Sex and the City. Just like the rabbit vibrator, Sex and the City did not invent the Hitachi Wand or discover its alternative use – it was probably discovered on day one of its sales debut way back in the 70s’ - but it was featured on the show and predictably sales skyrocketed.

What this reveals more than anything else is how ignorant of sex toys most women of the Sex and the City generation were before the ratings topping comedy show was aired.
As a vibrator the Hitachi Vibrator is basic but effective. It has two speeds, 5000rpm and 6000rpm. If it has a drawback it’s the sheer size, this is not by any means a portable vibrator, and it has to run from the mains which means you need to lie down reasonably close to a socket.

It’s also loud. Remember it was never designed as a sex vibrator. Those clever people at Hitachi, who thought you would merely be massaging your husband, never imagined in their grey suited dreams thought you might need privacy and discretion, and they have never been inclined to encourage the product’s alternative use.

The head is a tennis ball sized massager, but in recent years a whole slew of sexy attachments have been added for couples and individuals to enjoy the vibes. Amazon states that this female sex toy has long been one of their top selling vibrators.

The attachments include the Liberator Axis Hitachi - a triangular mount designed to hold the Hitachi Wand or any wand-style vibrator for hands-free solo play as well as adventurous partner sex.

There are also silicone caps that add an altered texture and extra clitoral and vulva stimulation during use and a silicone G-spot Massager you can use to insert and feel the powerful vibes deep inside.

While Hitachi is aware of the Magic Wand’s dual talent as a powerful sex vibrator, it just doesn’t like to talk about it.
