The Hitachi Magic Wand is an electric massager (otherwise known as a vibrator) intended for massaging muscles, as well as erogenous zones. It first appeared in the 1970s as a medical device, but is now widely used as a sex toy. The device features a round soft flexible head measuring 2.5 inches in diameter with a 9 inch handle. The 6 foot cord is attached to the end of the handle. The Wand provides 2 levels of vibration speeds: 5000 and 6000 rpm, that are controlled by a hand switcher located on the handle. Unlike many vibrators, the Magic Wand is plugged into a wall socket rather than using battery power.
Like other personal massagers, the Wand can be used as a muscle massager for soothing and relaxing sore muscles and nerves, relieving tension, rehabilitation after some injuries of muscles and bones, etc. The intensive vibrating movements of the device against the muscles provide the increased blood supply to these areas that helps to regenerate the tissues and release the painful sensations. It is much better known for its use as a sex toy. In this use, it is usually applied to the genital area or the anus for erotic stimulation and can be used by men, women and couples. Some physicians recommend it for women to increase genital sensitivity and enhance arousal. Its effectiveness as a sex toy for women has been widely publicized by a variety of sex writers, notably Betty Dodson.
