Review: We-Vibe Tango

The We-Vibe Tango is a toy I’ve heard about for years through reputation. And the moment I pressed it against my dick and turned it on, I understood why.

The We-Vibe Tango is a very small vibrator. It’s 90mm in length, with a width of just 20mm. Instead of having a evenly tapered end, it has a slightly flattened plane on one side. It’s made of ABS plastic, is waterproof, and is charged via a USB charging cable. The Tango comes in two colours, pink and blue.tango1.png

You can purchase the Tango from The Pleasure Garden for £55 if you’re UK based. If you’re US based, you can purchase it from Spectrum Outfitters for $79.

When the Tango arrives it does need to be charged, with around an hour of charging translating into two hours of play time on the lowest setting. The play time is significantly lower on higher settings, but when the battery is low, a light will flash. In theory, this means it won’t die during sex, but I did have a few occasions of unexpected vibrator death.

The Tango has four speeds and four patterns, which are controlled through the single button on the Tango’s base. I don’t care for patterns at all, so I can’t pass any judgement on that. However, I really like the simple speeds. I can actually get off on the lowest setting, which isn’t something I’m used to with bullet vibrators at all!

I don’t think I ever understood the difference between a rumbly and a buzzy vibrator until I tried the Tango. Of course, I’d tried rumbly toys before, but they’d always been wands, which provided broad stimulation different enough to pinpoint stimulation that it didn’t feel compatible. I think the material of the Tango also has an impact- it’s made from hard plastic rather than softer silicone, so the vibrations translate really well and intensely.

lengthsI’ve used the Tango for all kinds of sex and masturbation. I’ve used it while using a dildo in my front hole, in a harness, while eating somebody out, and while muffing somebody. It feels good against a clit, against a t-dick, against a neo-penis, against a perineum, against nipples, against all of those things. I’ve put the Tango through every situation I can think of, and in almost all of them it’s done nothing but shine.

I did have some issues fitting it into some harnesses and dildo bases. It didn’t quite fit into my Please Works Rookie, or my Joque Harness, but didn’t poke out enough to prevent use altogether. The length works fine most of the time, but in these situations it can be a little awkward.

That said, most of the time the Tango is perfect. It fits between two bodies really well and unobtrusively, and works really well in some way with almost all anatomies. It’s slim and small enough to not be a vulva hog, and the slightly flattened end of the Tango works really well for me. My cock has increased size both in terms of length and girth since starting testosterone, and this shape fits against it better than a sharper point. I think the flatterned edge of the Tango slots together almost perfectly with the shape and dimensions of my dick, as it turns out.

And somehow, it manages to do all this while remaining super quiet. You could definitely hear the Tango if you were in the same room, but if you were separated by a wall? You wouldn’t be able to hear at all.

Maintaining and cleaning the Tango is really simple. As it’s waterproof, you can clean it with some soap and water, or use toy cleaner. As it has a motor, it shouldn’t be boiled, but you can sanitise it by wiping it down with a 10% bleach solution, and then washing it. This means the Tango can be used between partners you’re not fluid bonded with.

The first is that the single button of the Tango combined with its memory function can be annoying sometimes. I tend to orgasm on ultra, but this is too high a speed to start on when I start to masturbate. I have to cycle through the patterns to get back to the lowest speed.

Additionally, the magnetic charging clip can be unstable at times, and clips off pretty easily. In practice, I’ve had to check to make sure it’s properly attached.

Overall though, the Tango is an amazing bullet that I’d recommend to anyone who likes pinpoint external vibrations, no matter their anatomy. If you prefer broad stimulation, it’s obviously not for you, but for pretty much anyone else, I can’t think of a better or more rumbly bullet.

If you’d like to buy the We-Vibe Tango, you can buy it from The Pleasure Garden for £55. Alternatively, if you’re based in the US you can buy it from Spectrum Outfitters for $79.
