Colt kept me throbbing for more

The Colt Throbber is a simple vibrator that is designed for anal use. As a man, I can say that it does its job very, very well. It's powerful, simple, and feels damn good. The only problem is that it uses C batteries (who uses those?) ... Although I guess it's better than those tiny, expensive watch batteries that bullets use). Be careful with this, or this colt might leave you throbbing.

extremely useful review


This vibrator is designed for anal use. Since it comes from the Colt line, it's designed for male use, but females can easily use it, as well. However, it's a little long and pokey. It's very cheap, especially for its power, but that's simply because of the material -- your standard, rock-hard plastic. It's also pretty loud, so I always use it with the shower is running.

It's "designed" for anal use. However, there is no base, so you might want to use one of those "vibrator enhancer" rings (included in similar products). Also, although I'm not female (and therefore have no idea how it would feel), it can also be used for both vaginal and clitoral stimulation.

Material / Texture

This toy is made of your standard run-of-the-mill plastic, which is both good and bad. It's good because it isn't very reactive, compared to latex and jelly. However, it's very hard and unforgiving, and that can be a bad thing when it comes to navigating the twists and turns of your rectum.

The PU coating is pretty nice, though, and it makes the surface soft. Like most hard plastic toys, there is no smell or taste to this toy. As far as I know, it's not porous, but you still want to clean it with simple soap and water.

There is a seam running down the side of the toy. If you're very sensitive, that seam might be a little irritating. This toy also ridges on it. I'm a texture junkie, so I love the idea of the ridges. However, the ridges on this toy start a good few inches down, which is a small problem for me. You see, I'm pretty horrible at taking length unless I'm really into it, so I don't always feel the ridges. That said, the ridges are very pronounced, and they feel pretty nice.

    • No odor

Design / Shape / Size

This toy is your general bullet shape, although the point is slightly skewed to one side. There are ribs running down the length. Since I'm a texture junkie, I love the ridges. This toy is definitely for slightly more advanced users, as it's pretty sizable in girth. It's even more sizable in length. Although the toy is sleek and can be stored anywhere, it's very "LOOK AT ME, I'M A VIBRATOR"-ish, so I wouldn't whip it out at the airport or leave it on your mantle.

Here are some stats:

Length: 8 1/2"
Insertable length: 7 1/4"
Circumference: 4 1/4"
Diameter: 1 1/4"
Weight: 3.4 oz
    • Intermediate
    • Vibratorish

Functions / Performance / Controls

This vibrator has a sort of dial on the back that allows you to go between the vibration levels. The vibration levels go from 1, all the way up to 4 -- and anywhere in between. The dial is very easy to move, which is sometimes bad when you've got slippery, lube-y hands. That said, I haven't had any problems with it.

The vibrations seem to be located in the top part of the toy, as they should be. They're deep and rumbly. There aren't any complicated patterns -- just constant vibrations. When it's in me I can feel the vibrations throughout my body, which is nice. When used in the water, it still works just as well. As long as you have the battery thing on tight, no water will leak in. I've never used the toy underwater, though, since I only use water-based lubes.

This toy is pretty loud. However, the only problem is that the toy runs on C batteries, which pretty much sucks. I usually just steal batteries from around the house to power my toys, but I don't own a single object that runs on C batteries. Fortunately, the batteries last pretty long since this toy is so simple.
    • Easy to use
    • Lots of variety in function
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

Since this toy is plastic, it can easily be cleaned with soap and water. You can even give it a little bath since it's waterproof. I store this guy in his original packaging (like I do with all my toys). Like I said in the previous section, I only use water-based lubricants, but he can be used with any lubricant that you want. It is not able to be sterilized, so you should use a condom if you want to share it.

Like a few other reviews have said, do not take the cardboard thing out of the battery compartment -- it's there to muffle sound.
    • Easy to clean


The packaging on this toy is very, very basic; it's not bright or flashy. Fortunately, no scissors are needed to open it! Instead, you just separate the halves of the packaging. There were no instructions. In my opinion, if you need instructions to use a vibrator, it's too complicated.
    • Minimal
    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable

Personal comments

Although he's not the best sex toy ever (he's not silicone, runs on C batteries, and is as hard as a lead pipe), he's still immensely powerful. He does the job very, very well. He's also dirt cheap, which is really cool.


So, the only other vibrator I own is that TPE one that I also reviewed. I can easily say that this one gives me much better orgasms. It's less comfortable, though, as it's a lot firmer. This one is also a lot thicker than it looks, so if I get too excited and just jam it in there cold, I end up hurting myself (happens more often than it should). Once it's in and on, it's very very nice.

I can feel the vibrations throughout my body, and I've never felt that from a toy before. Also, since it's so powerful, it gives me killer p-spot orgasms. Needless to say, I don't last very long with this guy on full blast. It's also very good for external stimulation; it's the only toy that I own that does a decent job at providing external stimulation.
