The Bottom Line

It is a testament to the quality and utility of the Wahl Massager that remarkably little has changed in this product since its introduction in the early 1900s. The Wahl delivers intense vibration at two speeds, comes with seven different attachments, and is good for full body massage as well as genital stimulation. Separate attachments can be purchased for penetration play, and the vibrator is good for solo or partner sex. Aside from it's high quality, and unique feel, the Wahl is a favorite among many for it's virtually silent motor, making it a stealth vibrator without compare.

Guide Review - Wahl 7 in 1 Massager

Referred to in sex toy manuals as a coil vibrator because of it's unique mechanism of vibration, the Wahl Massager is one of the oldest vibrators still widely available. It is powerful, durable, and almost completely silent when in use. This is because of it's electromagnetic motor which produces an intense pointed vibration without any whirring parts.

The silent running of the Wahl Massager, along with its somewhat clinical design, has long made it a favorite for anyone concerned with thin walls, roommates, nosy neighbors, and/or children. The quiet operation has earned it the nickname in many stores as the "parent vibrator".

The Wahl Massager is recommended for people who want or need stronger vibrations and are looking for a toy that will last. The massager itself is heavier than battery powered models and can be awkward to hold for extended periods, but many people will use it by lying it on their body or positioning it between their legs. As with other electric vibrators, care needs to be taken not to completely cover the vibrator while in use, as it can cause the motor to over heat.

On its own, the Wahl Massager is designed only for external stimulation, and is quite good for full body massage, as well as genital stimulation. The attachments that come with the Wahl Massager are all for external stimulation, but several companies have designed attachments that can be used for penetration as well. All attachments are removable and easy to clean.

The main drawback to the Wahl is it's lack of versatility and, like all plug in electric vibrators, you need to be near a wall outlet in order to use it. Other than that, over 100 years of satisfied customers would suggest that novelty is not always the best path to creating a great vibrator.
