We-Vibe Salsa Review

Note: Before I go on with the review, I need to tell you that the We-Vibe Salsa is getting discontinued.  If you like my review, go, NOW, and get yours.  We-Vibe currently has them for 30% off.  Once they're gone, they're gone.  If you miss it, don't panic.  The We-Vibe Tango is a very near cousin, and the only difference between them is how the very tip is shaped.  Only the Salsa is being discontinued, not the Tango.

I have owned a lot of vibrators at this point.  Some were good, some were great, and some immediately went into the garbage in disgust.  I'm always on the lookout for a new clitoral vibe, especially one that Husband and I can use together, and I found it in the We-Vibe Salsa.

A little bit about it: The We-Vibe Salsa is a small clitoral vibrator, about 3.25 long by my measurements.  It's waterproof, strong, rumbly, and quiet.  You can't hear it outside of a closed door unless your house is absolutely silent.  I don't know about you, but my house is never silent, so this would be hard to hear.

The Salsa comes in a really neat trapazoid-shaped box very similar to the We-Vibe Touch, and includes the vibe, charger, and storage bag.

The Salsa is made to be an external vibrator.  Even though it is waterproof and lubricant friendly, it would not make a good vaginal toy.  Also, I need to stress that this is not an anal safe toy.  The attempt would likely end in an embarrassing trip to the emergency room.  External use only, people.

What I loved: Wow.  Just wow.  The Salsa has deep, rumbly vibrations.  None of this surface buzzy nonsense you get from cheaper vibrators.  Husband was concerned that the power may equal buzziness, but that is certainly not the case.

The Salsa is perfect both for alone time and couple's time.  The pointed tip is great for those that need pinpoint stimulation, while the side can be used for people who really like to have broad stimulation.  The Salsa is small enough that it fits between Husband and I really well, making it perfect for extra stimulation during sex.  However, because of the size and shape, it does move around a little bit.  You either have to hold it, or readjust it every now and then.  Neither are really an issue.

There are 8 vibration settings total: 4 speeds and 4 patterns, so there should be something for everyone. For those that need really strong vibrations, the Salsa delivers.  If the Hitachi is a 5 in intensity, the Salsa is a mid to high 4.

What I didn't: The Salsa has a similar flaw to the We-Vibe Touch in that it doesn't last too long on high power.  After about 20 minutes on high, it gradually loses power, finally dying at around an hour. All We-Vibes I've had do that.  I would suggest that you don't reach for the Salsa until you are very aroused.

Final thought: Love it.  Even though the battery doesn't last as long as I'd like, the pros outweigh the cons.  The Salsa is essentially a luxury version of the cheap bullets, and I must say that We-Vibe really got it right.   I would highly recommend it to those that want something small but high quality.

~I received a discount for the Salsa in exchange for a review on another site.~


  1. A friend was leaving town and gave me her Tango. But although it charges, I can NOT see where it turns on, let alone this 8 different speed/ style settings. I've looked at the Tango on the company's site, and it looks like I have got all the bits. Hilariously, it is a bit frustrating.

    Because it may be broken, but it doesn't look like anything is missing.

    1. Found it! Not as stupid as I look, after all. :-)

    2. No worries. Yeah, the button on the bottom sort of blends in, doesn't it?
