Update: There is a new, improved version called We-Vibe Moxie+ (review here). It has better Bluetooth connectivity and battery but is similar in vibration, size, and design.
In this review of the We-Vibe Moxie, I tell you why I see it as an update to panty vibrators.
The We-Vibe Moxie is the first attempt at a completely external wearable vibrator, although We-Vibe has already made some C-shaped wearable sex toys that can be worn during sex (like the incredible We-Vibe Sync).
Moxie is the first sex toy in the industry that attaches with magnets, rather than the more conventional usage of suitable underwear. With the Moxie, We-Vibe has gone one step further and given us the gift of magnets and all the control options, as this toy is compatible with both a remote control and an app.
Moxie is ideal for outdoor play thanks to its excellent connectivity and comfortable design.
Pros and Cons
- Powerful vibrations that can be adjusted according to your personal preferences
- Elegant design
- Fully waterproof (super easy to clean) and made of super soft, body-friendly silicone
- On the lowest setting, it’s quiet enough for public play; on the highest setting, it’s discreet enough when worn in a busy area 3 preset settings and 7 preset patterns
- Easy-to-use controls
- Uses a convenient and customizable app that offers unlimited control options in terms of patterns. It is free for Android and iOs
- Can be controlled via a phone for hands-free stimulation
- It is a bit pricey (having similar toys usually costs around $100
- Not suitable for quiet places on the highest level
How does Moxie work?
You have three options to control the We-Vibe Moxie:
With the button on the toy itself, the remote control with the compatible mobile app.
Below, I’ll talk about each of these options. I’ll start with manual control of the toy, which is an excellent choice if you want to use it alone for masturbation.
Since the Moxie only has one button, operating it this way is straightforward and comfortable. Like the We-Vibe Tango X (review), you can adjust the intensity and vibration pattern by pressing a single button on the Moxie.
You can cycle through the toy’s 10 modes, four of which are steady speeds and six of which are patterns, by pressing the button once to turn it on, and it starts at the lowest constant speed.
Then, press and hold the button for 2 seconds to turn the toy off.
The Moxie has a memory function, so when you turn it on, it will start in the vibration mode you turned it off in. That’s all well and good, and I am used to vibrators with only one button, but there’s one big problem. This is supposed to be a helpful feature. Still, I find it annoying because I usually masturbate with the lowest settings on my toys, incredibly when I am not aroused yet.
However, with this toy, you can only decrease the intensity of the constant speed by clicking through all the other options first. That’s a real fun killer, and besides, I have to set the toy beforehand so that my clit does not go completely numb when the vibrator goes full force.
Also, I think a travel lock for the Moxie would have been helpful since you can logically assume that this is the toy you want to take with you when traveling. After all, the Moxie’s button must only be pressed once to turn it on, not held down.
My experience with We-Vibe Moxie
Moxie was a surprise to me. I did not expect it to feel so good because I thought its surface was too apartment to serve its primary purpose – to make me orgasm. I recently tried the Lovense Ferri and the OhMiBod BlueMotion Nex 1 vibrating panties, and the Ferri felt extremely powerful, while the BlueMotion Nex 1 was a bit weak by my standards.
And the design of the BlueMotion Nex 1 is very similar to the Moxie, so I expected it to be inadequate for my clit.
Well, I was wrong. When I first tried the Moxie, I was surprised that a panty vibrator could be so comfortable and still deliver such powerful vibrations.
After all, when worn, most panty toys with a flatter design feel more natural. Walking, sitting, and lying down, it feels like nothing is out of the ordinary except for the vibration. And the shape is what I like most about Moxie. It’s less intrusive to me, and the vibrations feel more natural and teasing.
Sure, Moxie offers broader stimulation, not my personal favorite, but it’s a much more relaxing way to orgasm. During my first session with Moxie, it took longer than I’d like to admit to reaching orgasm, but I finally did. Moxie is versatile and can be used as a handheld bullet vibrator and used to massage other erogenous zones, not just the clitoris.
It took me more time to position the toy correctly. Maybe it was because the panties I wore that day were too loose.
But it all started to make sense after I got the toy and magnet in the correct position.
BUT panty vibrators are an AWESOME way to have fun with a partner!
My SO and I decided to do our first test before going to TV. We chose a comedy show. I was not prepared at all; I even forgot to apply lube. He used the remote for this session and started on the lowest setting, hoping I would get wet while watching the show, but I was too distracted, so we needed a change of plans.
No TV, just the two of us testing moxie.
Some nipple stimulation helped prepare me for the vibe. But this time, he controlled the toy via the app, choosing to interrupt vibration patterns that felt quite arousing after I was already wet.
First at the lowest intensity level and then gradually becoming stronger and stronger. That’s when I realized that he was playing with me because he knows very well that I only reach orgasm with steady stimulation. He started switching between the different patterns, which was pleasant and teasing at first, but then I really needed an orgasm, so I asked him to do something about it.
I was able to climax on one of the medium-intensity levels of constant vibration. And it felt so liberating this time (compared to what I usually think), maybe because my partner just went too far with the teasing.
The next time, we tried the Moxie outdoors, but that was more of a remote-control test. First, the remote’s perfect connectivity distance is about 10-12 feet.
As for the app, we had no problems connecting and controlling Moxie remotely.
So overall, my opinion about the We-Vibe Moxie panty toy is quite positive in terms of performance. You must spend some time properly fitting it to your panties and getting to know the We-Connect app.
The Moxie has a bit more power than typical for a portable vibrator. It’s not quite as powerful as the Lovense Ferri (review), its main competitor, but it’s not noticeably weaker either.
And while Ferry’s vibrations are more spot-on and focused on the clitoris, Moxie’s are more spread out. I prefer Moxie’s performance because it does not numb my clit.
Since the vibrations of moxie are deep and booming, they are almost completely absorbed by the body. This means that they are not easily perceptible even in a quiet place. However, this refers only to the low/medium settings.
The higher settings of the toy are quite loud, so I recommend not choosing them for outdoor play.
Because the We-Vibe Moxie is made entirely of body-safe silicone, it is stable and comfortable to wear on a date. It is also free of latex, phthalates, and BPA. You can take the We-Vibe Moxie Toy to the hot tub for a splashy, seductive water adventure because its materials are waterproof.
Note: This does not apply to the Moxie remote, so keep it away from the water.
Moxie is a palm-sized, lightweight and compact panty vibrator that comes in aqua (between green and blue) and black. Mine is aqua.
Moxie comes with two disk-shaped magnets (one of which is a spare) to keep it in place. The vibrator is held securely in place by the magnet on all types of panties. Position the vibrator, align the panties, and stick the magnet to the outside. Almost no slippage.
The bottom has a power button, a magnetic plate, and the charging components, while the top (which rests on the clitoris) is raised and curved for more targeted stimulation.
Compared to traditional panties, it is silky, smooth, and more elegant.
The exact dimensions of We-Vibe Moxie are 3.35 inches (85 mm) x 0.9 inches (23 mm) x 1.1 inches (27 mm)
Moxie is small enough to wear in public without sacrificing performance, but not too small. For a portable panty vibrator, it’s a perfect size.
The We-Vibe Moxie Wearable Vibrator can be charged via any USB port, as it comes with a USB charging cable and a magnetic charger. I like magnetic chargers better than regular ones because they are more reliable and include a magnet indicating which to plug it in.
The light indicates charging when it flashes rapidly. If the light stays on, the device is fully charged.
According to the user manual, it takes 90 minutes for the Moxie to charge once you plug it in thoroughly.
It took a bit less time on my device the first time because it was already somewhat charged.
Overall, Moxie has a respectable battery life for an external panty toy. It’s about 2 hours on the highest setting, which is enough for a decent remote session with my partner.
The button control is a beautiful choice if you want to masturbate alone. Because the Moxie has one button, using it in this manner is incredibly simple and feels fairly comfortable.
Press the power button to switch on your We-Vibe Moxie (located above the magnetic plate). It will turn on at the last function you used.
You can cycle through the toy’s 10 modes, four of which are steady speeds and six of which are patterns, by pressing the button once to turn it on, and it will start at the lowest constant speed.
Then, keep the button down for 2 seconds to turn the toy off.
Press and hold the button briefly to turn the Moxie off.
Moxie is both a remote control and an app-controlled vibrator. To connect the remote and the Moxie panty vibrator for the first time, press and hold any button on the remote for 5 seconds. The light indicator on your remote will flash 3 times, and the Moxie will vibrate 3 times once the connection is successful.
The remote of the Moxie vibrator can be controlled through the four clickable buttons in the front of the device.
To turn on your Moxie vibe, press the below button once. A single vibration will indicate the Moxie is ready.
That same button is used for increasing the intensity of stimulation.
With the 2 side buttons, you can go through the 10 preset vibrations.
The button below allows you to decrease the intensity of the vibrations, and it turns off the vibrator once you click it for 2-3 seconds.
Use the We-Connect app
First, You must download the We-Connect app, which is free and available for Android and iOS devices.
Search for the app in the Google Play Store or the App Store, then click the install button.
It takes around a minute to complete the installation.
After installing the app, you must successfully connect the phone you intend to use to control your toy with Bluetooth.
Then enable your location; this function is required to pair your toy and the Bluetooth.
The final step is to link your We-Vibe Moxie vibrator to the We-Connect software.
Your toy must be turned ON for this to be possible.
Press the raised button on top of your Moxie vibe and keep it there for 5–6 seconds to activate pairing mode. When pairing mode is active, the We-Vibe Moxie will vibrate three times.
According to my experience, the connection is made more quickly the closer the Moxie and the phone are to one another.
You should see a screen asking you to connect a toy with a large button like this as soon as you launch the We-Connect app.
The first time you connect your toy, you will get a prompt for pairing like this:
Click on Pair & connect.
Then, on the following prompt, click Pair, and you should be connected to the We-Vibe Moxie.
If something goes wrong or the app searches too long for your vibe, you can close the We-Connect app open it again, and start the pairing.
The last step is to uninstall the app install it again, and follow the steps. Eventually, it should work.
Pro tip: Place the vibrator on the left side of your phone while trying to connect.
How to air Moxie with a partner?
The We-Connect app must be downloaded and set up on the mobile devices of both partners.
The owner of the vibrator is responsible for pairing it with their cell phone.
After that, users must click on the “Person+” icon in the center of the top line of the screen (circled in red).
The “Yes, I want to connect with a partner” button must be clicked first before the “Connect a partner” button appears.
A list of messaging services will then be displayed. Select your preferred service to send your remote partner the invitation link.
The remote partner must click the link after receiving it and then click the “Connect to lover” button.
He has to disconnect from another partner if he is connected to him via the We-Connect app.
You can delete your partner by selecting “Settings” from the hamburger menu in the upper left corner and then “Remove Partner”.
The partner with the vibrator will receive a pop-up message saying, “Your partner would like to connect,” and will then be able to operate the vibrator after the removed partner clicks on the person with the green dot (which means your partner is online).
You need to select “Yes.”
Then, the chat menu will appear, and your session will begin.
You can call and send text messages, photos, and videos there.
The remote partner must click the upper left corner to operate the We-Vibe Moxie vibrator.
Students can quickly design their vibration patterns by clicking on the pattern menu. This opens the pattern menu and the button to start or stop the vibrator.
We-Connect’s data transmissions are secured and encrypted on secure servers.
However, remember that this is the Internet. So avoid sharing anything that might make you feel humiliated later.
To prevent bacteria growth, you should clean the vibrator before and after each use. Ensure the Moxie is completely dry before it is placed in its storage box after cleaning.
Your Moxie panty vibrator is made of non-porous, body-friendly silicone, so it’s easy to clean with warm, soapy water. You can also clean it with a sex toy cleaner if you like.
You should not put your We-Vibe Moxie, charging cable, or remote control in the dishwasher, nor should you boil or microwave them.
Some users recommend disinfecting the Moxie in a 10% bleach solution, but that’s unnecessary. A careful wash with soap and running water works just as well.
The We-Vibe Moxie vibrator is a bit pricey. It costs about $125, while competitors’ panty vibrators cost about $100. However, the We-Vibe company offers a 2-year warranty, which is unusual in the world of sex toys and should be appreciated, as most companies only offer a 1-year warranty if there is a warranty.
My brand new We-Vibe Moxie just arrived in the mail, and the first thing I can say about it is that the We-Vibe company values the privacy of its users.
The We-Vibe Moxie was delivered in a plain cardboard box with only a sticker with information about the courier company. Two cable ties held the box firmly in place.
To reduce friction and avoid possible damage during shipping, wrapping paper was used before I cut it and opened the box.
And there it was: the beautiful, elegant box of the We-Vibe Moxie panty vibrator. We-Vibe’s packaging never lets you down!
I bought the aqua-colored We-Vibe Moxie.

- A wireless remote control
- A 20 ml sample of lubricant was also included in the package (pjur)

We-Vibe Moxie Vs. Lovense Ferri
Each product’s creators sought to maximize stimulation without sacrificing comfort. Both vibrators are constructed of soft, firm silicone that doesn’t flex or move.
Ferri or Moxie are waterproof panty vibrators. Both may be submerged for 30 minutes at 3 feet. Both sex toys have strong magnetic clips.
Lovense Ferri’s motor is slightly stronger than Moxie’s. Both products are app-controlled, with a free downloadable app; however, Moxie comes with a hardware remote that you can operate from afar without a phone or Internet.
Ferri and Moxie have pre-programmed vibrating patterns and settings, but you can use their applications to adjust them. Both are quiet, though not as whisper-silent as advertised.
The Ferri lasts 3-3.5 hours and charges in 60 minutes. Moxie lasts two hours and charges in 90 minutes.
Both long-distance vibrators work well for solo and couple-play. The Ferri is better in public and long-distance play because of its app, which I consider a bit more reliable. Moxie is a bit more expensive than Ferri.
