There are 2 ways you can enjoy solo play, and that is by physically pressing the control buttons for vibration pattern and vibration intensity, or you can download the app and use your phone to control the Nova.

Long-Lasting G-Spot Stimulator

Full body orgasms expected…I’ve had this toy for over 3 years, and she works like new every time she is used! The Nova from We-Vibe is the toy that allowed me to experience a full body orgasm; not to mention squirting for the first time EVER!

Vibration Modes Are an A+

As a single woman, I love exploring my body, and the Nova rabbit vibrator gets me THERE! There are 10 vibration modes with 5 intensity levels; not only the toy can be controlled by another person no matter where either of you are, but the clitoral stimulator can be independently controlled from the G-spot stimulator! That is a feature that I love! I use my Nova a minimum of 10 times a week and not just vaginally, I’ve used it anally as well, and that’s an experience you’ll have to try for yourself… but I will say this… There is NO faking an orgasm while using it. The one negative about this toy is the fact that it is 1st generation and cannot be linked to vibrate to music as the newer generations do.

Comparing It to the Nova 2

This version of the We-Vibe Nova is no longer available to buy, as it has been succeeded by the We-Vibe Nova 2. But, how do they compare? Well, first off — they look a little different from each other. The Nova 2 is covered head to toe in pink, body-safe silicone, with no seams, and has a super flexible rabbit arm and shaft to fit all kinds of body shapes and sizes. Interestingly, it’s also about 1 inch shorter than the original! The Nova 2 has the same 10 vibration speeds and 10 patterns as the original, but also has a travel lock feature. Like the original Nova, the Nova 2 can connect to the We-Vibe Connect app, but it has access to some additional features, like syncing the vibes to music.  And finally, it has the same battery life and charging time as its predecessor.

Its rabbit-like design has 2 parts, an internal arm for g-spot stimulation and an external arm for clitoral stimulation. It looks and feels good to the touch. It doesn't have a manufactured smell like some of the other products I've bought and used. The Nova is soft, semi-quiet, comfortable and convenient; especially when you have those urges to have some naughty fun but there are guests in your house! I am a fan of the design because it is ambidextrous. I'm left-handed, so it is easy for me to navigate the toy. What I have an issue with is that although the toy can be "adjusted", the g-spot stimulator arm has minimal flexibility. The clitoral arm has some flexibility but is not designed to stay in the place you positioned it. I would have liked for it to have more adjustability and to stay where I've positioned it. Also, the design doesn't stand out too much; it is similar to other designs I have seen, which is a tragedy since it is such a great toy to use and play with.

The We-Vibe Nova is a very easy to use toy. There are 5 buttons total. The 1st is to turn on / increase vibration of the toy. Button 2 turns off / decrease vibration. Button 3 changes the different vibration patterns. Button 4 changes the vibration to its previous vibration pattern, and button 5 allows you to switch the control between the two motors. With its comfortable grip and slight curve anyone can use the Nova, from novice to expert. Since this toy is 100% waterproof, cleaning it makes it a breeze!

This toy is very reliable. I bought my Nova when they first came out; that was nearly 4 years ago, and it works like new! It is sturdy yet doesn't weigh more than a couple ounces. I believe the high quality of the silicone helps it to make minimal noise while being used. So much so that the vibration noise would not be disturbing to anyone in your house if you choose to play while guests are around. Be unabashed and let your freak flag fly whenever you feel the urge to vibrate!

I bought the Nova when it first came out, but the price to me was worth it. I’ve had this toy over 3 years now and it works like new! I would tell anyone looking to purchase a high-quality long-lasting toy to invest in a Nova. There are newer versions of this toy, and I am sure they last just as long as my 1st generation Nova. The charger that came with it still works. The Nova 2 is cheaper now than when the Nova 1 came out, so that's a win in itself. Overall, you pay for quality, and We-Vibe knows quality!

I’m still blown away at how intense the vibrations are after over 3 years of use! It is like the Energizer bunny, full of intense vibrational pleasures. Every time I use Nova, I find a new way of getting off! Before buying my Nova, I didn't know or even think I was capable of squirting, but after buying Nova, I can truly say that not only can I squirt, but I can also control when to release... Also, if you're into edging... which I am, Nova is great for that too! I can tell it’s nearing its lifespan though; the internal battery has begun to get a bit warm after using it longer than 30 mins, and it takes a shorter time to charge as before it took 1.5 hours to fully charge, it now takes about half that time. However, it is still my go-to toy, and I am glad I invested in it.

The packaging itself was a pretty basic design. The box was pink/purple with an image of the toy, and its name on the front. It did have a cute little ribbon the box could be held by, but there was no WOW factor to the packaging at all. Nothing to catch the eye of a possible consumer. The reason I purchased the toy was because my sister worked at the sex store, and she knew about all the cool features. I suppose you can say “it’s better and worth it on the inside.”

It is made of a very soft, high-quality body-safe silicone. Because the toy is 100% waterproof, it can be submerged, so cleaning it is quick and easy. It can be cleaned with toy cleaner, alcohol or warm soap/water. You can leave it to air dry or wipe it dry with a lint free cloth. Storing the toy is easy and discreet because it comes with its own silk draw-string storage pouch. Having this also makes it ideal for travel.

The Nova can be controlled by another person via the We-Vibe app. It connects through Bluetooth and as long as there’s a connection, whomever you give access can control your stimulation. This is a feature that sold me on buying it. The downside of this is that you cannot control the vibration by connecting it to a playlist like the newer Nova 2. But giving your partner control when they aren’t there helps those lonely nights feel not so lonely.

  • Made with body-safe silicone.
  • Vibration modes are phenomenal.
  • Quality makes it a long-lasting product.
  • Can be used in multiple ways.
  • Your partner can participate even when they aren't around.

  • It cannot be connected to vibrate to music like the newer versions.
  • It only comes in 2 colors.
  • The magnetic charger doesn't always stay put.

Overall, I love this toy! Not only does it have the 10 vibration modes, but both arms can be controlled separately. Personally, I love clitoral stimulation and being able to increase/decrease the vibrations on the clitoral arm is amazing! My only complaint is that it cannot be connected to vibrate to the beat of music which the newer ones do. Nova is a strong and satisfying toy and a great addition to a collection.

We-Vibe products set the standard for discreet, quiet operation. At full power, they are no louder than low-level conversation in a library.

Like all We-Vibe products, Nova is body-safe — free from phthalates, latex and BPA. It is encased with 100% medical-grade silicone, a non-porous material that resists bacteria and makes your Nova easy to clean and care for.

To change the vibration mode, press and release the buttons.

Download the free We-Vibe App on your mobile device from the App StoreSM or Google Play™. Nova® is compatible with Bluetooth® Smart Ready (Bluetooth 4.0) products, including iPhone® and Android™ devices. Open the app and follow the on-screen pairing instructions. By holding down the control button on your Nova for 5 seconds until it pulses twice, you are prepping your Nova to be paired.

A full charge provides up to 2 hours of vibrations and maintains its charge when not in use for up to 1 year, so it's ready whenever you are! The high-quality recharging system lasts for over 500 charge cycles, providing many years of reliable pleasure.

Download the We-Vibe App and get access to the battery charge feature so you always know how full the battery is.
