As a devoted and long-term Doxy fangirl, I was delighted to see they’d teamed up with the good folks at Lovehoney to produce a limited edition version of the Die Cast 3R wand vibrator. The fact that it’s purple? Well, that’s just the icing on top of this very sexy cake! Let’s find out how I got on with the Doxy x Lovehoney Die Cast 3R, shall we?
What is the Doxy x Lovehoney Die Cast 3R?
This toy is a limited edition variation on Doxy’s very popular 3R. Modelled on the full-size Doxy Die Cast, it’s a miniature, rechargeable version. Measuring 11 inches long and with a head measuring 1.8″ in diameter, it features a gorgeous hand-finished aluminium body and a body-safe silicone head. The body is an absolutely stunning shade of purple that sparkles and shimmers when it catches the light.
The head unscrews, making for easy cleaning (helpful, since the Die Cast 3R is not waterproof). This also means you can pair your Die Cast 3R with any of Doxy’s 3R model attachments to turn it into a prostate massager or rabbit vibrator.
The Die Cast 3R comes with a screw-top aluminium case. This makes it feel that little bit more swanky and luxurious, as well as protecting against damage in storage or transit.
The Die Cast 3R’s charging and run time is really its one big let-down. With four hours charge time to one hour of running time, this is a toy you need to plan ahead to use. As someone who can easily have multiple orgasms with this toy, a longer running time would be very welcome.
Oh, and a quick pro tip: check out the instructions the first time you use your Die Cast 3R, because mine came with the travel lock enabled which was temporarily confusing!
The Die Cast 3R in use
Fair warning: though it’s smaller than its full-sized companion, the Doxy x Lovehoney Die Cast 3R is still a heavy beast of a toy. The tapering handle is comfortable to hold but, if hefty weighted toys are challenging for you, this might be one to skip.
The Doxy x Lovehoney Die Cast 3R features the same convenient three-button interface as other products in the Doxy massager range. The buttons are large, responsive, and easy to press. They also light up, making this toy ideal for use in low lighting. You can turn the power up and down by either pressing or press-holding the plus and minus buttons.
If noise is a concern for you, this toy might be a better choice for you than a full-sized wand vibrator. Though it’s not exactly what I would call quiet, you do lose some of the noise thanks to the smaller size.
The main reason I love my Doxy Original and Doxy Die Cast so much is this: they’re knock-your-socks-off powerful. In the right mood, a Doxy can take me from cold to orgasm in less than 5 minutes (no mean feat for someone whose motor usually takes far longer than that to get going, so to speak). Did the Die Cast 3R match up?
The short answer is yes. This version might be smaller, but it packs a similar level of power to its full-sized, mains-powered counterpart. With that said, the vibrations do feel different, which I attribute to the smaller head on this toy. They’re focused into a smaller space, offering more direct stimulation instead of the very broad rumble you get from a full-sized wand.
The Doxy x Lovehoney Die Cast 3R offers a slightly less rumbly sensation compared to the Doxy Original or Die Cast. Even so, the vibrations on this thing are incredible. It can reliably get me off in minutes.
Now that we’re starting to go to kink events and sex clubs again, having a cordless version of my favourite toy will be very welcome. No more scouting around the dungeon for power outlets required!
Verdict: is it worth it?
If you’re looking for a cordless or travel-friendly wand vibrator without compromising on power, the Die Cast 3R is a no-brainer.
What if, like me, you’re a dedicated Doxy fan and considering adding this one to your collection? Is it worth it? In my view, yes. The Die Cast 3R is notably different from the full-sized Doxy Die Cast in a number of ways, most especially the concentration of the vibrations into a smaller head and the difference in sensation that provides. The slightly greater ease of use is also a plus.
Overall, I’m happy to give the Doxy x Lovehoney Die Cast 3R a glowing recommendation. It packs a hell of a lot of power into its sleek, sparkly package and has already earned its place among my go-to vibes.
This toy retails for £149.99 ($199.99), which is the same price as the full-size Die Cast. It’s more expensive than both the Doxy Original (£89.99) and the corded Doxy Number 3 (£129.99). You’re paying a premium for the cordless option, but that will be worth it for some people.
