Le Wand Crystal G Wand Review: Pretty and effective

Jul 01, 2023

The crystal industry is booming. From a rose quartz water bottle to a crystal facial set, if you want a geode gizmo, the internet of things can likely spit one out for you to purchase.

This includes masturbatory crystals. When premium toy brand Le Wand dropped their Crystal Collection, I was skeptical.

For one, I don't ascribe to the healing power of crystals. But I do trust Le Wand as they produced a cordless wand vibrator I love. Crystal sex toys have long been a "thing" as well, which brands like Chakrubs at the forefront.

Sticking a crystal up myself, though? That seemed like the final frontier. Considering the brand they're coming from and how objectively gorgeous the wands are, however, I decided to give them a shot.

Le Wand has several offerings in their crystal collection: Crystal Wand; Crystal Slim Wand; Crystal G Wand; and Yoni Eggs. All come in two options, rose quartz and black obsidian.

For this review, I tried the rose quartz Crystal G Wand to see how it measured up on its own, and how a crystal wand compared to other internal toys.

Crystal is far from the typical sex toy material. Many stones and crystals are porous, meaning they have tiny holes or space where air or liquid can fill them. Porous materials aren't ideal for sex toys, as they can absorb bodily fluids, lube, and whatever else the toy may touch. Because outside material can seep into the toy, cleaning the surface doesn't help. This is why many sex toys out there are made of non-porous, body-safe silicone.

Le Wand told Mashable that the crystal collection is certified to meet California's Prop 65 standards, which requires businesses to warn customers against significant exposure to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. These toys also meet EU and UK safety standards.

According to Gemological Institute of America (GIA) researchers that spoke with Chakrubs, rose quartz is non-porous. Other crystals may have "closed porosity," which means that they have pores but only at the surface of the crystal, and they don't penetrate through the center.

On its site, Le Wand said that crystals in their toys may have closed porosity, and recommended using a condom if you're using these with a partner with whom you'd rather not share bodily fluids. I'd venture to say that if you're nervous about using a closed porosity toy, use a condom even if you're playing solo.

As always, clean your wand before and after each use. Due to the potential for closed porosity, it's imperative you wash it immediately after your session.

The packaging matches the aesthetic of the toy: Pink with gold gem-like accents. Each toy in this line comes with a travel pouch and a 94-page guide, which details how to use these toys and the history of crystal healing.

The wand also comes with a silicone stopper designed to be placed on the toy for simultaneous external stimulation.

Le Wand and the internet as a whole, it seems, loves to clamor about the aforementioned "healing power" of crystals. These stones have been said to contain such power for eons, so it's understandable why the trend continues — especially given that mainstream interest in crystals, as mainstream interest in astrology and other non-Western forms of spirituality, have been on the uptick in recent years.

I, however, have no authority on this matter. While I can't say whether these wands will allow you to "experience spiritual enlightenment" or "reach sexual nirvana" as Le Wand claims on their website, I'm also not going to say that's a complete farce. If these stones have persisted this long, there's probably a reason.

My focus, though, was only on the physical — not spiritual — feelings the toy gave me and how the wand functions as a sex toy.

If you're into crystals you can, as described in Le Wand's booklet, cleanse it spiritually before first use. I only cleaned it literally.

The G Wand has a curved end to angle up and stimulate the G-spot, while the other two wands in the collection are straight. Either end of the G Wand can be used depending on the type of internal stimulation you're after.

Unlike silicone sex toys, you can use any type lube with this toy. If you use the silicone stopper in conjunction with the wand, though, use only water-based lube to not degrade the stopper. I didn't use a condom but if you do, make sure not to use oil-based lubes either.

I'll be honest, it was difficult not to just stare at this toy. As Regina George would say, it's, like, really really pretty. I wanted to use it based on aesthetic alone — but beauty doesn't make a great sex toy. How does the toy actually feel?

I was completely surprised at how nice this toy felt against my skin and body. I usually stick with silicone internal toys — I've never had a glass dildo, for example — so I wasn't prepared for how smooth the sensation would be.

The wand felt great. I was worried it'd be too cold, but it wasn't — and it warmed up during use, anyway. The angled edge is perfect for hitting the G-spot, and has the perfect length (178 mm) and width (34 mm at the bent curve end) for just-enough stimulation.

One frustrating aspect of this toy, though, was the silicone stopper. The internal/external combo creates the best orgasms for me, so I was excited to use it... but I couldn't fit it over either side of the toy. I imagine this isn't a problem for the other wands, especially given that the stopper is photographed over the regular wand, but I struggled to get mine on the G Wand before I gave up.

I also didn't want to try too hard to pull the stopper on because this toy is made of crystal, after all. A downside of this wand, as I imagine all crystal toys, is needing to handle it with care. The toy is especially slippery when wet, and considering I recently chipped a gua sha tool after first use, I worried I'd do the same to the G Wand. In contrast, I don't have to be precious about my silicone toys at all.

My G Wand is thankfully still intact, but my fear of dropping or cracking it may stop me from grabbing it for future sessions.

These comparisons are for vastly different toys but could be helpful if you've tried one and never tried a crystal toy before.

Crystal G Wand vs. realistic six-inch dildo: The G wand wins out here. While the dildo may be more lifelike, I find that the G wand glides in a more pleasurable way. The bent angle is also a huge plus, as standard dildoes aren't created to stimulate the G-spot like that.

Crystal G Wand vs. Soraya Wave: This depends on what experience you're looking for. The Soraya Wave mimics a "come hither" motion with your fingers, giving similar G-spot stimulation as Le Wand's G Wand. Both toys get the job done, but Wave does the work for you. I found that the silicone of the Wave didn't feel as gentle on my skin as the crystal of the G Wand.

Crystal G Wand vs. Thruster: Again, this depends. The Thruster is a great option if you like a more realistic-looking toy, and if you want to lie back while the toy does the work. You won't experience hard-and-fast thrusts with the G Wand as you do the Thruster. At the same time, the Thruster isn't angled to hit the G-spot.

While I can't speak to the spiritual properties these toys may possess, I enjoyed the G Wand and believe it's a good sex toy in its own right. The 94-page booklet is informative, and the travel pouch is a plus.

At the same time, there are snags. I couldn't get the silicone stopper to work, for one, and I need to be mindful of this fragile toy while handling it. The wand feels amazing against my body, but I also wonder if glass or stainless steel wands would garner the same effect. Glass and stainless steel are also non-porous materials, so I wouldn't have to worry about that.

If you're "big into crystals" and have the means to spend anywhere from $110 on yoni eggs to $250 on the G Wand, these toys are for you. They're beautiful and well-produced.

If one or both of those factors aren't true, though, then I'd skip this collection. Le Wand does have stainless steel toys, so if you want to experience that smooth sensation, I'd consider those.

Ultimately, I had fun with the G Wand but wouldn't purchase it for myself. Especially since porosity may be an issue, I may not use it very often even though I very much enjoyed it. The crystal sex toy didn't push me to "sexual nirvana" — but I did orgasm, which is good enough for me.
