I was introduced to the Magic Wand by Betty Dodson in her book “Sex for One,” and together they changed my life. I looked farther into the future than you did; I purchased the replacement Wand just a month after acquiring the first one. The first one is still alive and buzzing, but you never know when a company is going to stop manufacturing the best thing you ever found. So Wand 2 is already in my drawer, ready to go. I have been using Wand 1 for 25 years now (perhaps I am less highly sexed, but damn, multiple orgasms can keep me satisfied for a long time…). Best present I ever bought for myself. Thank you for writing this piece, I enjoyed knowing there is someone else out there who loves this toy.
