Is this new We-Vibe G-spot vibrator another failed gimmick, or does it live up to its name? We answer all your questions in this We-Vibe Rave review. Let’s go!
Just when you think you’ve seen it all…
I’ve sampled a fair few G-spot vibrators in my time, so it’s not often I see something that makes me turn my head sideways and say, ‘Huh?’
That’s exactly the look I gave the We-Vibe Rave, though. With an asymmetrical design and unexpected slopes and ridges, this G-spot stimulator is slightly confusing at first.
So, is the We-Vibe Rave just another failed gimmick, or does it live up to its name?
I’m happy to report that this Rave review is really a rave review!
The Rave has succeeded in giving G-spot stimulation another dimension. There are so many different sensations to keep you guessing. Its motors are powerful and rumbly, and it’s great as a clit vibe too!
The Not So Good
The long-distance app feature leaves you wanting, and connection issues break what could be a really great feature. The buttons are hard to press. And it’s not waterproof.
The Bottom Line
If you know you love G-spot stimulation and are looking for something to really hit the spot, the We-Vibe Rave is a great choice. It truly offers something new to this type of toy, but don’t rely on the long-distance app. It’s much better for solo play.
The We-Vibe Rave is for you if:
- You love G-spot stimulation
- You want a vibe that can be used internally or externally
- You want a toy for solo pleasure
- You like a variety of sensations
- You want lots of app-control features
The We-Vibe Rave is not for you if:
- You don’t enjoy G-spot stimulation
- You’re on a budget
- You’re relying on the long-distance app feature

My First Impressions /Packaging of the We-Vibe Rave
The Rave comes in sleek, pretty packaging like all of We-Vibe’s toys. Every time I open something from them, it really feels like opening a gift!
Inside the teal box, featuring a blended purple and blue silhouette of the toy itself, I found the Rave presented in all its glory. I love that We-Vibe’s toys are always on display like this, floating in a foam mold.
I found all the exciting extras behind the Rave.
The USB charging cable and user manual are standard, of course, but there’s also a large satin storage pouch and a sachet of lube.
The storage pouch is big enough to fit the toy, manual, and charger, and the lube means you’re ready to go almost as soon as you unpack the Rave.
It’s the little things that make a big difference!
Let’s Talk About Tech Specs
How Does the We-Vibe Rave Look & Feel?
The Rave is unlike any vibrator I’ve seen before—in that it’s completely crooked.
When I first picked it up, I was a little SHOCKED.
Its body follows the general curved shape you’d expect from a G-spot vibe along the length. But along the width, it’s a whole different story.
It sort of twists, with an asymmetrical head and long pointed ridges along both sides.
Honestly, it’s sort of hard to describe. The best way I can put it is that it looks like someone at the factory messed up the molds when they were making it.
That’s what I thought at first, but I was wrong.
It turns out the asymmetrical design is a feature, not a bug. It’s supposed to allow for a wide variety of possible stimulation, and I can confirm the weird shape delivers.
Apart from its strange form, it has all the luxurious smoothness you’d expect from a premium sex toy.
The body-safe silicone is silky soft to the touch, but there’s no give in it at all. The Rave is rigid to make sure you’re getting very firm G-spot pressure.
We-Vibe Rave Key Functionality
We-Vibe toys are known for their strong, rumbly vibrations, and the Rave doesn’t disappoint. The motor on this thing is nice and strong, with 10 different levels and 10 patterns to choose from.
The lower speeds are gentle enough to allow for a slow build-up, and the top speeds are simply intense, so get ready.
If you prefer buzzier sensations, this might not be the toy for you. But if you’re a fan of deep, rumbly vibes like I am, you’ll love the Rave.
The Rave can be controlled either manually or through the We-Connect App. The app is by far the more powerful option, with lots of extra control possibilities. Plus, it offers shareable control features.
If you have a long-distance partner, or even if you just want to hand over control to someone in the same room, you can do that through the app.
I found the Rave to be surprisingly quiet for a vibrator this powerful. It’s not silent, of course, but I felt very comfortable using it with other people in the house.
I don’t think it could be heard through walls or doors, so it’s easy to enjoy alone time without worrying about what your housemates will think.
How to Use We-Vibe Rave
The Rave isn’t meant to be used like other G-spot stimulators. Instead of just pushing or thrusting, you’re supposed to twist the Rave inside you.
This sounds weird, but hear me out.
The asymmetrical design means that as you twist, your G-spot receives a wide variety of surfaces, leading to a wide variety of sensations. It can be as intense or as subtle as you want.
You can still use it to rock, push, or thrust if you want. But the inclusion of varied ridges and slopes means there’s a whole new dimension of stimulation that’s unique to this toy.
The Rave has three very easy-to-use buttons to control its most basic functions. The buttons are set into the toy’s body and marked by raised silicone symbols.
There’s a central button that turns the toy on and off. To do this, just hold the button down for three seconds. The same button can be used to cycle through the Rave’s 10 vibration patterns.
Something to note
When you turn the Rave on, it defaults to the most powerful vibration level. If you prefer to start slow, make sure you tone it down before using it on yourself.
Above and below the power/patterns button, you have the intensity controls. Use the ‘+’ and ‘–’ buttons to get exactly the level you want or to ramp up gradually.
I found the buttons to be a bit hard to press, so that’s where the app control comes in handy.
The We-Connect app offers all the standard features of the manual controls, plus a whole lot more.
You can download the app (available for Android or iPhone) and pair it with the Rave.
Keep in mind
If you own other We-Vibe products, you’ll only be able to control one toy at a time through the app.
One way around this is to clone the We-Connect app with something like Clone App. You will then effectively have a separate We-Connect app for each toy you own.
Then, the world is your oyster! You can adjust the vibration intensity in real-time, sync the vibes to music stored on your phone, or adjust the intensity according to sounds in the room.
All We-Vibe’s products are made with couples in mind, and the Rave follows that trend. Even though it’s best as a solo toy, you can also invite your partner in on the fun through the long-distance feature in the app.
To hand over control to your partner, you can invite them to connect. Once they accept, you can give them all the same controls available during solo play.
In your long-distance play session, you have the option of video chat, voice calls, text chat, and photo sharing. Have fun!
Charging and Battery Life
We-Vibe had deviated from their standard magnetic charger for the Rave, which had the tendency to disconnect when your back was turned. Instead, it uses an insertable charging cable, which is why the toy isn’t waterproof.
Fortunately, this means the cable is much more secure, so you can be sure the Rave will be ready for your next play session.
To charge, just plug in the charger and attach the USB end to your computer or a wall adapter. It takes about 90 minutes to charge, and from that, you’ll get a solid 2 hours of playtime.
The Rave also has a low-battery warning, so you don’t get caught off-guard in the middle of a self-pleasure session. Withholding orgasms is only fun when it’s done on purpose, after all!
If you see a little blinking light below the Rave’s buttons, it’s time for a charge.
My Experience With We-Vibe Rave
Once I figured out that the Rave’s odd shape was intentional, I was really curious to see what all those bumps and ridges were supposed to do for my G-spot.
I decided to try it out as a clitoral vibrator first to get me in the mood.
I started with a healthy dose of water-based lube and was pleasantly surprised to find the Rave worked as an amazing external vibe too.
I don’t always like pinpoint clitoral stimulation, and the varied shape of the Rave meant I could find a nice flat spot. This gave me broader stimulation and got me in the mood in no time.
If you do like pinpoint stimulation, the shape of the Rave allows for that too.
Internally, I found another world of surprises. The Rave really kept me on edge, never knowing what sensation would come next as I twisted it inside me.
I loved the rumbly sensations, and the firm, rigid body of the toy meant that I felt every nuance of the vibrations. It also gave me nice firm pressure on my G-spot.
I found the buttons to be a bit frustrating, so I mostly used the app controls. My favorite function is the ‘Beats’ option, where I can sync the vibes to music on my phone.
I also tried out the long-distance app control a couple of times. I loved that I could give the controls to my partner and share a video chat with him at the same time.
Unfortunately, though, We-Vibe’s We-Connect app is notorious for dropping out mid-play sessions, and I’m afraid that hasn’t improved.
The Rave, for me at least, is much better as a solo pleasure toy, and I had a wonderful time on my own.
I ended up switching back and forth between G-spot and clitoral stimulation, and I can confirm the Rave lives up to its name!
How to Clean It
The Rave is only splashproof, not fully waterproof, so you need to be mindful when washing it. You can run it under warm water, then lather it with a mild soap or sex toy cleaner.
You can then rinse with more warm water; just make sure you don’t submerge it.
The matte silicone tends to collect dust quite easily, so make sure you wash it before and after use.
We-Vibe Rave Price, Where To Buy
You can pick up the We-Vibe Rave at SheVibe for $113 – this is by far the best price I’ve found anywhere.
What Do Other People Think About It?
I LOVE THE WE-VIBE RAVE! It’s in a tie with the magic wand for my favorite toy of all time. I prefer deep, rumbling vibrations and like the asymmetrical shape.
It is one of my favorite toys! It’s super powerful, and you can use it internally and externally – the shape is soooooooo nice for G-spot stimulation, but honestly, I use it clitorally 99% of the time!
I managed to squirt using the Rave on my first try, so I would definitely recommend it! It’s really easy to use, and it’s pretty powerful. I also use it clitorally, and that’s pretty nice too.
We-Vibe Rave Alternatives
We-Vibe Rave vs. Lovense Osci 2
If you’re into novel G-spot stimulation, but the shape of the Rave isn’t so appealing, you might be into the Lovense Osci 2. Instead of vibrations, it stimulates your vag with oscillations. The head of the toy pushes in and out, tapping against the G-spot.
It’s also app-controllable, and Lovense is known as the master of app-controlled toys. For long-distance play, this is definitely the better choice.
We-Vibe Rave vs. LELO Mona 2
LELO Mona 2 is such a well-designed vibrator for G-spot and clitoral stimulation. It has a curved head with a pointed tip that spreads its rumbly vibrations over a broad or pinpointed area—whichever you want it. Yep, just like Rave.
Mona 2 works better for couple sex with its ergonomic design and a long handle that makes holding it really easy. But it’s more for when you’re WITH your partner as LELO Mona 2 doesn’t support app control, so Rave is for you if you NEED a long-distance play feature.
We-Vibe Rave vs. Lora DiCarlo Onda
Another contender for Most Original G-Spot Stimulator! The Onda is a robotic insertable toy that attempts to simulate the ‘come hither’ motion of fingers. It does this with a rolling ball covered in soft, luscious silicone, and the sensations are pin-point and intense.
The Lora DiCarlo Onda is on the pricier end of the spectrum, so it won’t suit all budgets, and the unique sensations are polarizing – you either really love the Onda or you really don’t.

I love that the We-Vibe Rave is expanding the realm of G-spot pleasure without alienating its users. The strange shape is interesting without being gimmicky and achieves exactly what it sets out to – variable and exciting G-spot stimulation.
If you know you love internal vibes and are looking for a new kind of pleasure, the Rave delivers.
I’d love to see an improvement in the We-Connect app. But for solo pleasure missions, the Rave has won me over!
