The day this package arrived, my entire schedule had to be wiped clean.The anticipation was astronomical. My hopes were as high as they could be; was the Doxy Number 3 going to be the toy to bring me out of my sub-par sex toy funk?
Regular readers to the blog will know that I am a huge fan of wand vibrators, in particular, the Doxy. This awesomely powerful creator of orgasms is pretty much plugged in constantly by the side of my bed, just so it can be ready in a moments notice. I’ve lost count of the amount of effortless orgasms it has given me over the last few years.
Doxy teased us with the then-named ‘Doxy Mini’ early last year. They were gearing up to debut it at Eroticon for the first time. I was so upset that I had to pull out of attending that year. To find out that I was going to miss out on seeing the next generation Doxy, was the lemon juice in an already painful wound. But I knew that one day, in the future, this was going to be in my possession. And I counted the days. Then just before Christmas, an angel delivered me a gift from the sex toy gods; the Doxy Number 3 had finally arrived in my possession. I eagerly tore into the box to behold it’s majesty…

In a rare and unusual moment of generosity, my husband was the first person to see the stars, when the Doxy Number 3 granted it’s first orgasm to him. Watching his reaction as I wielded this magic wand was enough to get me even more excited about trying it on myself…
The Doxy Number 3 was sent to us free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
So the biggest (or smallest?) thing to note about the Doxy Number 3 is it’s size. It’s far smaller than it’s predecessors. And that’s one of the things I was really excited about, for this version. Don’t get me wrong, I loved my original Doxy (and the beautiful Die Cast), but sometimes it can be a strain on the wrists because it’s quite large (and somewhat heavy). This promised all of the power, in a unit that was smaller and easier to hold.
The Doxy 3 is made from aluminium, giving it a lightweight body that’s shiny (but thankfully doesn’t show up the fingerprints!). Personally, it’s not as pretty looking as the die cast I have, but the cool metal finish does give the Doxy 3 a significant air of luxury to it. It’s a piece of kit that means business. The Doxy 3 clocks in at 11 inches in length, and weighs around 320g. The Die Cast is 15 inches in length and weighs in at 700g, so there is definitely a noticeable difference!
One of the new design features for the Doxy 3 is the removable silicone head. You can unscrew the cap, allowing for a thorough clean between uses. Also, in the future, Doxy are hoping to launch a range of attachments. As of yet, these are still in the design and testing phase, but hopefully we’ll see some of those soon.
The packaging of the Number 3 is an improvement over the original. The box is smaller, sleeker (but arguably it’s still quite big!). But if you removed the outer slip, the inner box does make a nice presentation box (and it will help keep the doxy nice and safe in between uses. It’s just not as nice as the case that came with the Die Cast.
Is it possible to truly fall in love with a toy? Where the thought of being away from it for whatever reason is almost painful? OK, so that’s a bit much, but I genuinely am so impressed and infatuated with the Doxy Number 3, that I find almost any excuse to look at it, touch it or shove it down my pants. When something works (and works well), you just have to go back for more. I’m almost prepared to say that this now my ultimate wand. Almost. We’re not quite there yet. But there isn’t that much to go.
For the most part, the Doxy Number 3 is used for penile/perineal stimulation on our house. Resting the vibrating head against the frenulum on the penis is enough to draw out a quick and satisfying orgasm. I even recently discovered that if I lie the Doxy on the bed, and position my shaft in such a way that I can lay down on the Doxy, it has me reaching squirtsville in almost seconds. That’s right, SECONDS. Thank goodness for things like the Liberator Throe, eh?
The smaller head of the wand allows for slightly more precise application of vibrations. For our purposes, it works in the favour of the Doxy. For those who like the idea of a wand vibrator, but aren’t sold on the broader vibrations, you might find the Doxy 3 could be better suited. But for me, the Doxy gets in there and draws that orgasm out of me, like the pied piper. I’ve yet to have a bad day with a Doxy.
Of course, the Doxy 3 functions extremely well as a regular massager as well; it’s smaller size allows to really focus the vibrations into all of those tight knots (it was a life saver over the Christmas period, let me tell you!). The silicone glides over the skim with relative ease, although a good splosh of lube or massage oil is still very much required, just to ensure the silicone doesn’t tug too much at the skin or any wayward back hair.
The Doxy 3 functions in the same way as the previous models. There are 3 brightly lid LED buttons (power, plus, minus). It also features the ‘hidden’ pulse mode, which is accessed by pressing and holding the power button down for a few seconds. The Doxy will then start pulsing, rather than kicking into it’s constant mode.
At this moment, I cannot say that this is the only wand massager I need; in it’s current configuration, it’s not compatible with my favourite masturbation cup attachments. I understand that Doxy would like to see a masturbator attachment for the Number 3, so hopefully, if that happens, then the Doxy Number 3 could soon be the only wand I need.
Let’s talk power. I know that’s probably what most of y’all want to know about. The short answer is, yes the Doxy Number 3 is indeed powerful. It’s almost as powerful as it’s full size counterpart. But I also feel it’s perhaps a touch buzzier than the original. I don’t know if it’s down to the size, or the new head that the Doxy 3 has; it just doesn’t feel like it quite picks up the same rumble the full size wand can. It’s not far off, but again, I do think it’s a noticeable difference. A difference that doesn’t really bother me too much, but might be a dealbreaker for some.
Clean-up and Maintenance
Like the original and die cast variants, the Doxy Number 3 is obviously not waterproof. But the new removable screw-cap silicone head allows for easy to clean-up. Just unscrew, rinse, dry and then scre it back on and you are good to go. The body of the wand can be cleaned with a toy wipe or a barely damp cloth. I hope that at some point in the future, Doxy consider (if they haven’t already) making a case for the Number 3, similar to the case they made for the Die Cast. I want to be able to keep it in pristine condition for as long as possible (although realistically, this is going to be plugged in next to my bed, along with the full size Die Cast).
Oh Doxy. My dear wonderful Doxy. You’ve done it again. I personally love everything about the Doxy Number 3. The smaller, lighter size means I can play with it for longer periods without getting any strain in my wrist. It offers pretty much the same amount of power as a full size Doxy, just perhaps not as rumbly (but still, very close). I think the make-up of the head (and the size) are contributing to that, and to be honest, it’s not unique to the Doxy. But it’s powerful, there is no doubt about that.
I hope we get to see some attachments soon, because with the right set, the Doxy Number 3 could become my go-to wand vibrator. I wouldn’t need anything else. The Doxy 3 could provide me with all I need. But for now, it is indeed very, very good. But i’m not quite prepared to part completely with my full size Doxy. And i’m not sure I ever well. But these two will be the bestest of bedfellows.

The Lowdown | Doxy Number 3 Aluminium Wand Massager
Pros: smaller, lightweight size allows for easier use, strong (mostly) rumbly vibrations, removeable silicone cap allows for easy cleaning (and for future attachments).
Cons: Vibrations do become buzzy on the higher settings, and it’s still a fairly noisy machine!
Bottom Line: It does the job of the big Doxy, just smaller and far lighter. Perfect for travelling with, and with the possibility of attachments coming, this could soon be the ultimate toy for the bedroom.
