I Tried the ArcWave Ion Masturbator for Men Who Just Like the Tip – menshealth.com

Since Ive been a sex writer, I dont think theres been more anticipation for a new male masturbator than there has been for the ArcWave Ion. I received six embargoed emails the day of its pre-launchone from WOW Tech press, two from fellow Mens Health staffers, and three from editors at various publications asking me to write a review.

This toy was supposed to be what revolutionized masturbation for everyone with a penis. The Porsche (please read with a fancy uh) of masturbators, but imagine this Porsche had wings and could fly. I got the impression that buttholes, vaginas, and mouths would be obsolete with this ground-breaking technology. One hundred years from now, Earth would be overgrown with shrubbery, and animals would roam freely. Not a single human soul would exist. Men would have wasted their precious seed using the Ion and only the Ion.

Alas, I dont think my dystopian future will come to fruition as the Ion is good, but not great. Given all the hype, I was disappointed. Since it costs $199, I really expected the whole world. (If anything, I only got half the world.) And Im not in the business of recommending high-priced sex toys when there are incredible sex toys for under $50.

As the press release for the ArcWave Ion states:

As you can tell from the release, the Ion exclusively focuses on the tip of your penis, specifically your frenulum, which is the sensitive area of your peniss backside where the head meeds the shaft. You dont really fuck it (i.e., thrust in and out of it) the way you do with a Fleshlight. Rather, you let your penis sit in it, pressing against the Pleasure Air technology, which suctions and pulses against the back head of your penis. Theres a plus and minus button so you can increase and decrease the intensity of the suctions.

The sensation was novelIll give it that much. I like the fact that you can pretty much put your dick in there, not do anything except strengthen your grip so theres more pressure, and youll orgasm. Whether on purpose or not, the toy edges you because its only focusing on one section of your penis. Since it edges you, you end up orgasming hard. Thats a definite pro.

Really, the Ion is a clit sucker except for the head of your penis. If you have a sensitive head and really like to focus on just your head when masturbating, then the Ion is a solid option. The issue, for me, is that the rest of my penis wasnt involved. Another problem is that the rubber-like material does not feel silky smooth in the way I prefer. There was a moment when the water-based lube I used with it dried up, and I thrusted, and it felt like I was getting rug-burned. (But then again, you dont really thrust with this toy.)

Its also loud, like a mini power drill. WOW Tech is definitely knowledgeable of its volume, which is why it has a Smart Silence mode, so stimulation will not start until the Pleasure Air sensor is fully covered. But once your penis is inside the Ion, its definitely on the louder side. I had to turn up my porn to full blast to drown it out. Thank God my roommate is quarantining at home with his family.

A pro is that clean-up is relatively easy because, unlike most masturbation sleeves, the Ion has an open top. (Plus, you can watch yourself shoot a load with this bad boy, if seeing that turns you on.)

So whats the final verdict? If you have a really sensitive head, just like that part of your penis stimulated, and have some spare cash under the mattress, go for it. Otherwise, go ahead and wait until ArcWave comes out with the Ion 2.0. Maybe that one won't just stimulate your head, but will use the fancy pleasure air technology to suction your entire penis like a goddamn tornado. That's what I'd like to see.
