We will discuss everything you need to know about the Magic Wand starting with the history of the massager, the different uses of the Magic Wand, different available versions, popular accessories and much more. As an authorized retailer, we hope this article will help you obtain the valuable information you need to make an educated decision for one of these fantastic massagers.

History Of Hitachi, LTD.

Hitachi is a Japanese multinational conglomerate which was founded in 1910 by Namihei Odaira and currently lead by Toshiaki Higashihara as of this copy in 2017.  As a traditional Japanese company who produces everything from electronics and data systems to defense systems, Hitachi happened to make a device called the Hitachi Magic wand. Hitachi introduced this item in the United States in 1968 for it’s sole purpose of being a device intended to relieve sore muscles and tension. The intention was always to be a health care device and never anything more than that.  This was until vastly popular sex educator, Betty Dodson explained the many benefits of using the Hitachi Magic Wand as a masturbation aid for women. Shortly after the introduction of the Hitachi Magic Wand and how it’s true “dual purpose” capabilities would be a hit with many consumers, people all over starting buzzing during private time.

VibratexVibratex, Inc.

Hitachi, LTD decided to stop production of this best selling device in 2013 and wanted to move in a different business direction which is why the rights of the Hitachi Magic Wand were sold to Vibratex, Inc.  Vibratex, a California based Sex Toy manufacturer and distributor, took on this  acquisition by convincing Hitachi NOT to decommission this device but instead continue making it under a different name.  The new name of the Hitachi Magic Wand was born and it was now called the Magic Wand Original.

How did the Magic Wand Massager get so popular?

After being introduced in the market as a dual purpose massager, the Magic Wand got notoriety from a number of different publications which includes but is not limited to Cosmopolitan, Engadget and Time Magazine. The Hitachi Magic Wand was also shown on TV within the Sex in the City series, Louis CK show and other notable areas of entertainment.  Bottom line, the word was out that the must have vibrator was the official Magic Wand.  After all, it wasn’t called the Cadillac or Rolls Royce of Vibrators for no reason!

So what exactly is a dual purpose massager?

Some may get confused by the term “dual purpose” since the main purpose of a handheld massaging device is to alleviate minor aches and pains with the use of vibrations throughout the entire body.  This means feet, calves, thighs, lower back, upper back, arms and neck areas are the main focus points.  However, the Hitachi Magic Wand is an excellent massager but an even better masturbation device!  This is why the Magic Wand is labeled as the perfect multi use, dual purpose device every household should have.

Hitachi Magic WandDo more men or women use the Magic Wand?

For almost 40 years now, the Magic Wand has been used by men and women all over the world due to it’s unique design and powerful strength. Used more by women due to its popularity of being a clitoral stimulating vibrator, the Magic Wand is and has become the “go to” vibrator for all women who masturbate with a toy.  Many men also state that ejaculation is achieved very quickly with the Magic Wand compared to conventional masturbation without a sex toy.
