Get ready for a bumpy ride with this one!

A great toy for the cheap price. It doesn't have quite the intensity that I look for in toys, but considering the price I paid I really didn't expect it to. If you can get off with lower intensity vibrations and don't want to spend a small fortune then give this a try!
price, high safety rating
needs more intensity otherwise this is a great toy

extremely useful review


The black magic ribbed vibe is a toy made for g-spot play and anal play. Although it does not have a flared base it is long enough and wide enough that as long as caution is used there shouldn't be any problems using it for anal. This toy is made by Doc Johnson. It is waterproof so it can be used in the shower anytime you feel the desire for water play. This toy is great for solo play but if you want to include your partner in the session feel free to allow then to thrust this toy in and out of your vagina or let them rub it all over your clit and other body parts for a nice teasing massaging effect. This toy can be used by beginners or advanced users. Although it is not small by any means it isn't intimidating either.

Material / Texture

This vibrator is made of plastic. Plastic is a very hard material; however, this toy is quite smooth to the touch. It is not flexible at all. This toy has plenty of texture provided throughout the 5 bumps on the shaft. The bumps increase gradually in size from the top to the bottom of the shaft. Beginners may find themselves not being able to handle the larger bumps but I am sure after a few uses they will be able to handle it. There is no taste to this toy at all and I didn't notice any scents or odors coming from the toy.

    • Bumpy
    • No odor

Design / Shape / Size

For those of you familiar with vaginal beads this toys shape is similar to that. This vibrator measures just over 7 inches, 6 1/4 of which is insertable. This toy is definitely not discreet. If it is left out, people will know what it is. It can be traveled with, only suggestion I have is make sure the battery is pulled out to avoid the embarrassment of it turning on in your luggage and draining the battery.

    • Partner play

Functions / Performance / Controls

This particular vibrator runs on 1 AA battery. Inserting the battery is a breeze, simply turn the dial on the end of the vibrator to loosen and pull off. Put the battery in and then place the cap back on and turn until tightly closed. This toy is very easy to use, to turn on simply turn the dial until at the level of vibration desired. The vibrations are mainly felt in the tip of the toy; however, you can still feel some of the vibrations throughout the shaft, its just not as strong.

This toy is waterproof so feel free to take it in the shower with you. Always take a moment and verify it is closed tightly before putting in the water. Although I did not actually use in the shower I did take it in there with me just to check and see if it would still run and it did just fine. Always dry completely after water play to avoid the risk of water managing to get inside.
    • Easy to use
    • Not discreet at all
    • Weak

Care and Maintenance

Cleaning is done by simply taking soap and water and wiping it down real good. Toy cleaning sprays and wipes can also be used on this toy. Again always be sure the dial cap is closed tightly to avoid getting any water in the electrical components.

Since this toy is made of plastic any lubes can be used with it. Feel free to try out your favorite water, oil, or silicone based lube with this one.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


This vibrator comes packaged in a purple and black box. Each end of the vibrator has a plastic piece that protects the ends of the toy and helps to hold it tightly in the box. The vibrator can be seen through the see-thru window on the front of the box. All over the box you will find packaging information about the product. When opening the packaging I did not find any kind of paperwork or any extras such as lubes.

Personal comments

This is a pretty nice toy. It is velveety smooth to the touch similar to what you would find in a silicone toy. The price cannot be beat at just under $15, what do you have to lose?


I was definitely pleased with the quality of this vibrator. I only wish it could have been more powerful. The bulges felt great and the material was very smooth to the touch. Rated an 8 in safety it is a very safe product to use and it is very easy to clean and care for. A little more power and this definitely could have been a 5 star toy. Due to the intensity though I have to call it a 3.5.
