extremely useful review


The Bottle Rocket Nova is an excellent vibrator, especially for beginners - not too big, not too complex, discreet, and works equally well externally and internally. Its intensity is just right for someone just starting out, and it feels wonderful on the clitoris, breasts, and just about anywhere you can imagine.

It is made primarily for external use, but it also works well to stimulate the vaginal entrance; and, if your G-spot is shallow, then it could work for that, too. It feels amazing on the clitoris or swirled teasingly around the breasts. Both the shaft and the tip work well for delivering stimulation, and it feels amazing - no matter if you're rubbing it against the clitoris or just holding it in place.

The Nova also works well in tandem with another vibrator or dildo; and it can be used to provide extra external stimulation or even applied to the base of a dildo, making the whole thing vibrate for even more fun.

Material / Texture

When I saw that it was made of plastic, I was expecting something hard and frictionless. I couldn't've been more wrong. The texture is nice and soft against the body, and the swirled texture and material itself provide just a bit of friction - not enough to drag unpleasantly, but just enough to add a little bit more stimulation.

The swirled texture is just right for beginners who may not be ready for something more complex or realistic, and it feels excellent when rubbed against the clitoris. It provides just the right amount of extra stimulation, even when you're really wet.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Swirled

Design / Shape / Size

The swirled design of the Nova is a nice thrill for someone who may not be used to or ready for something more complex, and it feels excellent against the flesh. It's not too big and not very girthy, making it nice for beginners or first-timers. Those who are used to bigger toys may find it a bit lacking if inserted, but will still enjoy how it feels when applied externally.

The size and simple shape make this toy very discreet and easy to travel with. It could easily pass as a simple massager and wouldn't be likely to raise questions if found in your belongings. Its discreet size and non-phallic shape would make it ideal for someone in a college dorm or traveling. It also fits nicely in a purse and is unlikely to arouse suspicion.

Functions / Performance / Controls

For such a small vibrator, the Nova packs quite the punch! The vibrations are equally strong at the tip and along the shaft, making this wonderful for pinpoint stimulation or rocking strokes. It only has one speed, but it's not too light nor so strong that it would scare away beginners. If you require very strong stimulation, it might not do the trick on its own, but it will certainly leave you feeling pleasantly buzzed.

The controls are simple - one button located at the base. I was initially worried that I might accidentally turn it off during use, but my fears proved to be unfounded. It takes a bit more pressure than a casual brush to turn it off, which is very good.

Battery life on this is amazing - it can go for months without significant loss in vibration, and it only requires one AA battery, which slides easily in. The battery case is easy to undo and replace, and the whole device itself is very user-friendly. The Nova also works well underwater. After several uses in the shower, the inside of the battery case was completely dry.

The sound itself is very discreet - I doubt you could hear it if you had the covers up, and you definitely couldn't hear it from the other side of a door. Even if you did hear it, it would probably sound like a cell phone set to vibrate, so it wouldn't raise any eyebrows. It also is quiet when submerged, even if your bathroom tends to make every sound echo.
    • Easy to use
    • Long lasting power
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

The material itself is also very easy to clean, simply requiring soap and hot water. I would recommend using a condom if the toy is going to be inserted or shared between partners, simply for safety's sake, but the material itself is non-porous and should respond well to most toy cleaners.

I don't typically use toys with lube; but, given that it's made of plastic and therefore relatively inert, it should work fine with whatever lubrication you choose, though I would advise trying to keep the lube away from the button at the bottom. If something were to clog the small gap around the button, the button might not work.

The Nova is discreet enough that you could probably leave it out on your dresser and no one would mind, but a toy bag would work just fine. I personally prefer to keep it in the original packaging, which is quite cute; but, more on that further on.
    • Discreet
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The Nova itself comes in a very cute package: a little, clear plastic bottle clearly emblazoned with the name and intended use. It's not very discreet packaging, but it is rather adorable in a cheeky sort of way. It looks like one of those old-fashioned soda bottles, as befits one of the 'Bottle Rocket' line of vibrators.

One might think that the way to open the package is to pry off the bottle cap at the top of the package, but the actual mechanism is a screw-off base, which also acts as a holder for the vibrator when not in use. Keeping the Nova in the original packaging is a nice way to keep it clean and ready for use, and if you're worried about being discreet, you can simply slip the bottle in a toy bag or hide it underneath your pillow.
    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet
    • Would make a nice gift

Personal comments

This was one of my first vibrators - and it holds a special place in my heart (and toy box) just for that. It's great for a beginner to use - or someone who just wants a discreet vibrator to take traveling or to keep in a dorm room. It's got a nice texture, just the right speed, and its long battery life means it will last for quite a while before you need to switch out the batteries. It feels great as it buzzes against your erogenous zones, and it is perfect for giving quick, intense clitoral orgasms without too much hassle.
Follow-up commentary
This is still one of the best beginner vibrators out there. Even though I've since moved on to something bigger, this works great for foreplay and for external stimulation. This is highly recommended and definitely for someone who doesn't want something too complex. It is sweet, discreet, and neat!
