We-Vibe Melt: the toy I now hand people instead of asking for head.
Yes, you read that right. Now, this is not to say that I don't enjoy oral sex or that I dissuade bed partners from engaging in what they want to do, but simply that, sensation-wise, I actually prefer the intense sucking-pulsations of the We-Vibe Melt to oral sex. That’s how much I freaking love this toy. In fact, it's joined the Magic Wand Rechargeable as the toys that live in my nightstand 24/7 rather than my sex toy storage closet (yes, I really have one of these).
The We-Vibe Melt is an air pleasure, clit suction style sex toy: the same as the more affordable line of ROMP toys I just reviewed as well as the infamous Womanizer’s I’m reviewing in the near future. These toys really only popped up in the last five years but have gained a lot of media popularity due to their ability to give vulva owners intense, low effort pleasure that doesn’t overstimulate or desensitize the clitoris like strong vibrators often do. They’re a wonderful kind of toy for many people and, **so far**the We-Vibe Melt is my favorite; I’ll let y’all know if that changes when I get my hands on the whole Womanizer lineup, but for now, let’s hop into the specs!

I think this is a beautifully made product that perfectly achieves it’s purpose better than any other clit suction toy. The silicone-covered exterior makes cleaning easier than with other air suction toys (fewer nooks and crannies means fewer places for gunk to get stuck) and makes it just feel better on the body in use since silicone doesn't feel cold and hard like ABS plastic. The mouth isn't squishy exactly, but it's definitely malleable and isn't uncomfortable to press into one’s genitals with some force.
What I find so special about the We-Vibe Melt is that the design works well for use during partnered sex when no other toys in the given category do. Period. The way Melt’s mouth extends past its body instead of the other way around--as seen on Womanizers, Satisfyer, Lelo toys, ROMP toys, et all-- allows Melt to fit between bodies during a variety of sex position and acts; I feel fairly confident saying that if there are one or more vulvas in a given situation, this toy can be used! I have personally enjoyed it while being fingered or penetrated or just on it’s own.
The color is a fun bright coral that isn't overly feminine and is a fun change of pace from typical pink and purple sex toys: score! The buttons are a little shallower than I would consider ideal for use, but the raised plus and minus symbols eradicate any issues that would come with the low profile controls. The magnetic charging is relatively easy to connect and hasn't given me anything to be upset about.
This Sh*t Sucks!
Now, if you’ve been around on Queer Pleasure for a minute, you know I like to throw some cringey dad jokes and puns in my blog posts: I think it helps keep 'em approachable and lighthearted. But seriously, this thing SUCKS! It sucks at my clitoris with the enthusiasm of a newly-out queer, a Dyson vacuum, perhaps even a black hole. And I freaking love it. The feeling of the pulsations produced by the We-Vibe Melt are more intense than those that come from other air pleasure toys I’ve tried; it feels more like a sucking or, erm, slurping, than the thudding I've found in other toys. To me, this feels more like--though not the same as--receiving oral sex and is the most pleasurable. This will vary between users, but I suspect that vulva owners who like oral sex will enjoy this toy.
The 12 speed settings start fairly gentle (though I might wish for a lower bottom setting for more sensitive users since that first setting is still quite stimulating) and the highest setting is whole-body-convulsions strong. Even for power users like myself, that 12th setting is plenty to push me over the edge to orgasm no matter how resistant my body is on a given day.
The Melt can be a touch loud--though nothing like a wand vibrator--on its higher settings but much of this goes away when Melt is actually in use on the body. My roommate is home for the holidays at the moment (lord do I miss them), but I deem the We-Vibe Melt roommate and neighbor friendly from turning it on high and trying to hear it from other rooms in my apartment: no noise was detected in these *very official* tests.
Ideal Uses and Users:
The We-Vibe Melt is ideal for folx who want a high-quality air pleasure toy with a lot of features. If you’re looking at the Melt for the app compatibility, it’s solid: not perfect, but it definitely works and there are plenty of guides for working around any We-Connect issues out there. and anyways, it is, quite literally, the only app-compatible clit suction toy on the market.
Melt works really well for vulva owners who may want to incorporate a toy into any sort of partnered or group sex and is clearly intended for use with others. Honestly though, it’s just so damn good that it's migrated to my nightstand, dethroning even the holy grail Magic Wand Rechargable as my most used sex toy. Don't get me wrong, I do use it with partners, but something about the low-effort orgasms feels like self-care these days.
The We-Vibe Melt is a pricey toy but is 100% worth it to me. If you know you like air pleasure toys, I feel that Melt is a truly worthwhile investment. Click here to buy We-Vibe Melt.
