If You Love Firm, Ribbed Toys, Black Magic Is For You!

The Black Magic is a fantastic ribbed toy, and it's great for anyone who likes an extremely hard texture. The bumps on the toy add a ton of amazing sensation. I've owned it for a few months, and it's a new favorite toy for those two reasons. However, if you're looking for intense vibrations or a soft dildo, this won't be very magical for you. Look for another toy.
Bumps stimulate your G-spot perfectly, VERY firm, fantastic ribbed texture, a great insertable toy
Vibrator breaks easily, vibrations aren't intense, not good for people who prefer soft toys
Rating by reviewer:
useful review


This toy stimulates the G-spot wonderfully. Although I wouldn't recommend it as a vibrator, it's still a worthwhile buy as a non-vibrating dildo, especially for that price! This toy will work for anyone who likes firm, rigid toys, and/or ribbed toys. If you want a softer toy or intense vibrations, you should look elsewhere.

Mostly, I use it for solo play, although I occasionally use it with my girlfriend. I think that it's a good toy for both solo play and couples.

This can also be used anally, if you make sure to be extra careful because it doesn't have a flared base. I'm not interested in anal toys, so I haven't used it for that purpose and can't give an accurate comment on that usage one way or another.

Material / Texture

I loved the texture. That's the reason why this is one of my favorite toys. I was looking for a toy that was extremely firm, and also had ribbed details. This is the only toy I've found that meets this description. The bumps add a ton of extra stimulation, much more than you'd receive from a straighter toy or a toy with less prominent ridges.

If you like softer toys, this isn't for you. This toy is VERY firm. If you want something very hard and rigid, you'll probably love this.

I think that anyone who likes firm, ribbed toys (or is curious about them) would appreciate this, regardless of whether they were a beginner or a more advanced user.

Design / Shape / Size

The size is average, but it feels bigger when it's inside because the material is so firm. I think that the size is good for most users, unless you're a size queen. If you like average-sized toys or toys that are slightly on the bigger side, the size will probably be good for you. It's easy to hide, just put it in the back of a drawer. However, I wouldn't call it discreet. It looks exactly like what it is, an awesome ribbed vibrator. I like the way it looks, although the design is a bit unusual.

Functions / Performance / Controls

When I rate the Black Magic vibrator for its use as a handheld dildo, I'd give it a five. That's what I use it for. However, I've taken off a star for this review, because the vibrating portion broke after several uses. Before it broke, I didn't feel that the vibrations added much to the appeal of the toy. I still love it, even without the vibrations.

Before it broke, the vibrations were located all over the toy and stimulated my G-spot a bit. The controls were very easy to use, and they were conveniently located at the bottom of the toy. It wasn't very noisy once it was inside, but could probably be heard if your walls are paper-thin. Just turn on some music and you'll be fine.

Care and Maintenance

It's plastic, so it's compatible with all different kinds of lubes. I store it in my lingerie drawer with no problems. You can rub it down with rubbing alcohol to sterilize it, or use a sex toy cleaner. Basically, it's very easy to care for.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The packaging was clear with the Doc Johnson logo on it. There were instructions about how to put in the batteries, and it stated that it was waterproof. You could use the package as a storage box.
    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet


It doesn't feel good to me unless I have additional stimulation on my clit, but everyone's body works differently. So, having a Hitachi (or another clitoral vibe) on your clit while using this to thrust inside feels like heaven to me. Even just having a finger on your clit makes all the difference.
Follow-up commentary
The Black Magic is still magical, and still one of my favorites. It's the only firm, ribbed toy I've tried that hits my g-spot the right way. The vibrating feature still doesn't work, but that doesn't take away from my love for the toy. I'd still recommend this vibrator to anyone who loves firm, ribbed toys.

    Thanks for the review, I wouldn't suggest using this anally at all unless you were to use the new enhancers that just came out as this could get lost in the anal cavity if not careful.
