Do you own a We-Vibe Tango? Have you ever wanted so badly to stick it up your butt, just to have the little angel on your right shoulder remind you that the laws of safe anal play forbid it? Yeah, me too, so many times I’ve lost count. The Pleasure Mates Collection gave me a glimpse of what could be with the Dusk butt plug sleeve. And now my rumbly butt dreams have finally been realised with the arrival of the We-Vibe Ditto. Glory be!
When I first plucked the Ditto from its box I confess that I just stared at it. And I stared, and stared and wondered if, when I got it in me, my butt would even know it was there. It’s so small, people. Only about one and a half times the size of my thumb.
It’s just 3.5” in total length. Yep, base, neck, and bulb, it’s the length of my middle finger. The neck is only half an inch or so, meaning that the We-Vibe Ditto is a tight fit. About 2.5” of it is the bulb, and that has a maximum girth of 3.75”.
But, as I’m sure most of us have heard by now, good things do come in small packages, so don’t write it off just yet…
As with all of We-Vibe’s silicone products, the Ditto feels lovely to the touch. Seamless, soft, and matte, you can tell that it’s a high-quality toy as soon as you lay your hands on it. My version is a gorgeous, midnight blue, but it comes in purple, too, if you prefer that.
Nearly all butt plugs I’ve seen have had one of three types of base: round, T-bar, or anchor. The base of the We-Vibe Ditto is the rarer type that turns the toy into an L-shape. Super short at one end with a longer piece at the other. That piece is subtly curved, so adds to the Ditto’s butt-hugging nature.
On the underside of the base you’ll find two things: the charger connector point, and the single control button. Yeah, like all We-Vibe toys, the Ditto is USB rechargeable via a magnetic charger. This is the point where I’d usually curse and whine, but the connection between toy and charger is pretty strong. In fact, I can pick the Ditto up by the cable when it’s charging without it disconnecting. I suspect that’s because the plug is super light, though, and I wouldn’t recommend you do this as on the regular just in case things go south.
As for the bulb of this butt plug, there’s a shape going on that I don’t think I’ve seen before. Be they squat and round or long and tapered, most butt plugs are uniform in their shape. Not the Ditto. It’s flat backed with a pot-bellied front. Because of the way it’s meant to be worn, that bulging hump presses against the inner wall, and very possibly the P-Spot, if you have one.
So, vibes and how to access them.
Like I said before, the We-Vibe Ditto has just one button. Firstly, the indicator light behind it flashes to let you know when your plug needs charging. That means you need never fall foul to a suddenly dead Ditto! Rejoice!
The button turns the vibes on/off, and lets you find your favourite setting. Because everything is fitted in so snugly down there, using that button while playing solo is pretty much an impossibility. Lube, body fluids, tightness…nope. I can’t change the vibes once the Ditto is in me. Even the Fella struggles to change them when it’s in me, cos his fingers slip off the button. And when he’s tried to hold the base to steady it, he’s nipped me. I’m not really keen on having a nipped butthole so, when it comes to the Ditto, the remote control is king.
It’s a battery controlled remote that’s super tiny and made from white ABS plastic and grey rubber. Four arrows let you move back and forth through vibration modes, and they let you adjust the intensity, too.
And then there’s the We-Connect App. Trust it or don’t, that’s up to you. We like using the app while the Fella is working nights, but as he’s had some time off work for health reasons, we haven’t really bothered with it (other than a perfunctory testing to make sure it works well – it does). The remote works fine for us, though we have had a few connectivity issues when we get more than a few feet apart. I think that’s my natural padding, though, and no fault of the remote itself.
Whichever way you choose to control your plug, you get the same vibes, though with the app and remote you do have the liberty to tune them more finely to your liking. Basically, if you were using the button on the toy you’d have four intensities and six patterns. If you’re familiar with We-Vibe toys, you’ll know what you’re in for.
The big question is, are the vibes at least equal to the Tango?
The answer to that is YES. Kinda. If you can imagine the Tango with a coating of silicone, vibes slightly dulled, sensation slightly softened, that’s what you get from the We-Vibe Ditto.
I was scared to use it at first because I was half convinced it wouldn’t work for me, but once I’d given myself a clitoral orgasm with it I knew we’d get along. Inserting it is made easy by the tapered tip, and once it’s past the halfway point my butt just draws it in. It sits comfortably straight away, no fiddling or jiggling necessary.
And as soon as the vibes start I want to fuck. It feels absolutely amazing, even though it’s so small I could probably forget it’s there if it wasn’t switched on. The vibes are powerful, deep and rumbly, the kind that feed my hotspots and make my toes curl. I can feel them from inside my vagina, and so can the Fella. When I’m on top, the base strokes his balls every time I lower myself down on him, and it’s ace feeling his legs jerk because of it.
It doesn’t give me the full feeling I usually look for in anal play, but only in the sense of not being stretched. Of not having whatever I’ve got in my vag moving against it. But the strength of the vibes makes it feel bigger than it is, so I do get the feeling of being penetrated when I move around.
Remember me mentioning the curved base earlier? Well, that curve is designed to lie against the perineum. It feels fab for me, but the Fella isn’t doing butt stuff at the moment so I can’t say how good it feels for him. He does like the way the vibes feel when I stroke the plug around his anus and perineum, though, so I reckon he’ll love it once he’s back in action.
Did I mention that the We-Vibe Ditto is waterproof? I don’t think I did, but it is. I have used it in the bath and it feels lovely, but I don’t like how loud it is so won’t do it often. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a super quiet vibe, but when it’s pressed against the bottom of the bath it’s mega.
Because it’s waterproof, you can clean it quickly and easily. As it’s an anal toy, I like to use toy cleaners after washing it in soapy water. Surprisingly, there’s no storage bag in the box. I’m used to getting bags with We-Vibe toys, even though I only use them for my Tangos. The box is small enough, though, so I store my Ditto in there.
It’s time for me to say that I love my little Ditto. It’s a Tango for my butt, and that’s a precious thing.
