"The We-Vibe Touch rocked my world. After a sesh with the Touch, I literally had wet dreams over its relentlessly powerful hum. The silicone on this toy is slick, but thick, and very gentle on our softest parts. The thickness of the silicone allows the vibration to radiate consistently throughout, leaving no sensitive parts behind.

Pressed against me, my awareness of the electricity involved in sex was heightened as the Touch poured a steady stream of electrical signals into my throbbing system of nerve endings. The device slid easily inside, but the shape felt a bit awkward for such use.
