The Arcwave Voy has been a real joy to test and it definitely has its use cases. This is only the second sex toy Arcwave has made but they seem to understand how to make high-quality male masturbators already.
I love how the tightness mechanism work and you can go from soft and loose to tight and super stimulating in a second.
Overall build quality is top notch but it does feel a little plasticky but not a deal breaker.
What I like about the Voy:
I recommend the Arcwave Voy if you’re on the go and wish a portable easy to hide male masturbator.
There is a good change that you’ve never heard of the new German sex toy producer Arcwave. Their new Voy male masturbator, which I’m going to test and review today, is their second sex toy ever after their successful Arcwave Ion.
The Arcwave Voy is a manual male masturbator with some very unique features that I’m looking forward to try. You can read all about the different kinds of male masturbators here if you want to know more about them.
The Arcwave was send to me by Lovehoney and it came in a fairly neutral looking cardboard box with very limited indication on the content.
The content description on the DHL label was “Massage Apparatus” which could be a lot of things.
I was pretty impressed with the unboxing experience and there is no doubt that they aim for a premium feeling experience.
There is a box cover that simply slides off and the box opens up like a briefcase revealing its content.
My first thought was “did I order a new lens for my camera???”. It’s both looks and feels like a camera lens with its adjustable tightness system and the protective endcaps.
It feels a little plasticky in the hands but there is some weight to it and the overall finish is really nice.
The middle section has a soft textured ring for tightness control and there is a line of dots that indicate the tightness.
You can remove the end caps by twisting them a little which reveals the internal black silicone part. One end has a tighter entrance compared to the other and there is a ripple texture on the inside silicone part.
It’s fairly straight forward to use the Voy, all you have to do is:
You can preheat the entire toy by submerging it in warm tap water but there are lots of pockets where water get stuck and leaks out during play so I would recommend only preheating the silicone part.
It’s not necessary to preheat it but I personally find it much more pleasant to penetrate a warm and moist hole compared to a cold one.
It feels decent to use but you’re not getting that full deep stimulation like a full-size masturbator like a Fleshlight or a FeelStar. It’s however not aimed at that so I’m not judging it on that either.
My penis is a little thick (5.9” (15cm) girth) and I was only able to penetrate it from the wider opening end and with lube applied to both my penis and the inside of the Arcwave Voy.
I was able to tighten it 3-4 notch before it got too tight to comfortably use it, but I kind of like that you’re able to control it in this unique way.
The inside texture is rippled and you really feel that when it’s super tight and the stimulation is super strong.
Another different feature to the bigger masturbators is that it’s open-ended so you can shoot cum out while you use it, this gives it an advantage over closed ended toys when you’re playing with a partner.
This is the unique selling feature of this device and it’s pretty good but there is room for improvements.
You operate it by twisting the soft textured ring on the middle between 8 points of tightness. The small tightness indicator dots are very hard to see and feel, they should have been bigger or colored differently.
The loosest setting looks like this:
The tightest setting looks like this:
It kind of looks like sharp points poking out through the silicone but they are in fact big tiles that can tilt and move around your penis shape. I would love to see the mechanism that does it but that’s hidden behind a sealed off silicone membrane that would ruin the Voy if broken.
The Arcwave Voy looks like no other sex toy in my collection and trust me – I got a huge selection!
It makes it easy to hide in plain sight without anybody asking questions about it.
I feel like it looks a lot like a camera lens so that’s where I’ll be storing mine.
Fleshlight does have a series of products called Quickshots which is comparable in terms of size and they cost around half as much as the Voy.
Why you should pick a Quickshot over the Voy:

You can read Kinkycow’s full guide to Fleshlight Quickshots here if you wish to learn more about them.
There are not that many competing products in this category of sex toys so it’s great to see new players entering this space.
The Arcwave Voy definitely need to be a consideration if you’re in the market for a small portable male masturbator.
It’s the best male masturbator for travelling with its neutral design that make it blend in to any briefcase or backpack.
I recommend the Arcwave Voy if you want a small portable male sex toy that’s easy to hide and travel with.
