Black magic ribbed vibe - textured classic vibrator by Doc Johnson - review by A.S.

Ribbed Vibe

This item would be good for people who have some experience with anal penetration but are still using fairly simple toys. The vibration is not necessarily very intense, but it is relatively easy to adjust.
Easy to use, gradient settings, good for anal penetration.
Hard to adjust settings while inserted.
Rating by reviewer:
useful review


This can be used for anal and probably vaginal penetration, as well as external genital stimulation. It is probably best suited for anal use because of the ribbed structure, which allows it to be securely inserted, with progressively widening bulges so that it would be difficult to get it lost inside.

Material / Texture

The material is okay. It's not silicone so it isn't the safest possible. It should probably be restricted to one area of use. There are no external irregularities that may be annoying or disturb the sensations it provides.
    • No odor
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

It has a reasonable design. It’s well suited for anal use, which is why I bought it. For beginners, it may be difficult to get beyond the second bulge because the third is fairly wide, as are those that follow. It has a good length though.

Functions / Performance / Controls

It's not too noisy but it’s loud enough that it can be heard even through a heavy sheet. It’s probably not loud enough to be heard through walls. The vibrations are located primarily towards the tapered edge, and they are not particularly strong but there is the possibility of a vibration gradient because to turn them on, you must use a spinning wheel at the end, which is easy to figure out but difficult to adjust when the dildo inserted. It is not waterproof.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

Caring for this is easy and cleaning is straightforward. The batteries are easy to replace. It works well with water-based lube and possibly with others. It’s fairly small and unobtrusive and so easy to store.
