Bump-n-Grind Magic!!

Do you like to play in the tub? I do and now I have a new tub buddy. This is a great water toy, strong vibrations and the ribbed shape is a very nice surprise. Feels like vaginal beads, only it vibrates! The price is perfect for a cheaper tub toy that will also be very pleasing.

extremely useful review


I have a new tub and shower toy!! This is a wonderful, waterproof vibrator that works very well for solo sessions, couple play and feels like 'vaginal beads'. The price was right, it was waterproof and looked like fun - boy am I glad I got this one!

My husband did not like the shape and feel of the bumps against his shaft, so this one is for me. He loved using it on me both in bed and in the shower. He wanted to try it as a foot roller/massager for his aching feet but I told him to get his own.

Material / Texture

The Black Magic vibrator is made of 'Velvet Touch' plastic. It is very soft and velvety feeling with a great drag sensation. Plastic rates 8 on the safety scale and this vibrator is rigid and not flexible.

There is an extremely slight aroma, you can only smell it when held up to your nose and are trying to smell something. I did not notice any taste to this vibrator at all.

The ridges are very pleasant and add greatly to the sensations, both inside and out. Combined with the light drag, this is a very enticing toy. I really enjoyed the sensations, ridges and loved playing with his in the shower and tub.

Design / Shape / Size

The Black Magic vibrator is shaped like an old fashioned tree topper. It has graduated bumps and ridges all down the shaft that add to your experience. The tip is about 3/4" diameter, the ridges dip in about 1/8" and the four balls down the shaft get larger by 1/8" increments. This makes the final ball 1 3/8" diameter.

Vaginal use is recommended, there is not a flared base. However, you may be able to tie a loop around the area on the base where you twist off the battery compartment opening. There is a waterproofing seal that could be taken off and replaced with a thin cord for removal.

This is a larger toy, about 7" long and is not discreet in any way. I would not use this for travel but you may be able to find a large enough pouch for hiding in your overnight case. Maybe in a sock?

Functions / Performance / Controls

Only one AA battery powers this vibrator, and what power it makes!! I was very surprised at the strength of vibrations I received from the Black Magic! Being used in the water did not diminish the vibrations and it actually made them feel stronger due to the water movement.

The strongest vibration is in the tip and dissipates with every bump. The bottom bump has a light and teasing vibration. The battery goes inside the twist off base and there is an O-ring seal to keep the water out. Make sure you twist the base back on tightly if you are using this in the water. To adjust the vibration from low to high, you twist the dial on the bottom.

I did find the noise level to be a bit louder than it should have been. It wasn't heard through a closed door, but did come close. I would use a background noise to mask this if it was used where noise might be a concern.

Care and Maintenance

Being waterproof, this is an easy item to clean. I wash it in warm, soapy water using a washcloth to get the ridges in between the bumps. I rinse it in warm running water, dry it thoroughly and go back over it with toy cleaner or rubbing alcohol.

This vibrator is safe to use with water, oil and silicone lubes. I suggest silicone for showers and tub usage. Silicone will not come off in the water. I use water based lube for other play times since I do play with a variety of toys. Some of them are silicone which is not compatible with oil or silicone lubes.

I store this in our toy box. I do use the original plastic folded box it came in. It is perfect for storage and is actually pretty for a disposable packaging.

Follow-up commentary
This is a very nice, textural vibrator. There are not a lot of bells and whistles with the Black Magic, however the feeling of the bumps internally make this a unique and fun option. The price is right for experimenting and trying this one out. Like I said in the review, it is a new vaginal bead vibe that vibrates!!
