Velvet touch vibrator - traditional vibrator by Doc Johnson - review by libbyv

Add resource

Originally for me, but eventually for him

In summary, the toy is fantastic. There are more pros than cons. It is a smooth, firm toy with great vibration, and is easy to clean. It's great for a first time vaginal toy. With a price so low, and a value so great, I'd suggest this as a must have for anyone's toy box. I hope you and your partner find it as enjoyable as we have.
Discreet. Powerful. Great starter for vaginal or anal. Light weight. Smooth and easy to clean
Can be a bit rigid for anal play. The control knob on the bottom can be hard to turn.

useful review


This toy is great for both vaginal and anal use. It can be used on your own, or with your partner (always more fun to play with someone else).
Because of the size, it would be best suited for people looking for their first toy, or those that like toys on the smaller side. If you're a size queen, don't waste your time.
This is not intimidating for those new to sex toys. It is also great for those with roommates, as it is not overly noisy. It is easy to handle, and there is a lot of fun to be had.

Material / Texture

The toy has an incredibly smooth and soft feel, like its name, it truly does feel like velvet. It's a great change of pace from the rubbery plastic dildos and vibrators I'm used to. It would be a great toy for a beginner, as it's not intimidating at all.

Although if used for anal use, it can be a bit rigid. This is my husbands only major complaint about it when I use it on him. I can't get too rough, since it really doesn't have any give to it. However, if you do use this for anal play, be sure to add something like the vibrator enhancers by Evolved so the vibrator won't get stuck.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

As a first vibe, this toy is a great size and shape. It has a small taper at the tip, and then is consistently sized the rest of the way down the toy. Straight and smooth, it's a good starter toy. With 6" of insertable length, the vibrator is not intimidating at all, but instead more fun and enjoyable, even for couple play, it's a great size, with lots of power for everyone to enjoy.
    • Beginner
    • Ergonomic
    • Partner play

Functions / Performance / Controls

Given the size of this toy, it has great power. As I use it often to bring my husband to climax, I can comment that its performance is top notch. It gives him the most powerful orgasms.

As an example of how strong the vibration can be, when we were recently having sex, I was on top riding his cock, and he reached around and put the toy in my ass, and he was able to feel the vibration very well. he gave me warning that he was about to cum, so I got off and worked him with my hand. Because of how excited the vibration got him, when he came, he ended up giving himself a facial. We had a great laugh about it, but it was also a real turn on to see how worked up he was getting over feeling the toy through me.

The only issue we have with the control is the twist knob at the base is just a little hard to turn, especially when have lube on your hands. This might become easier over time. We will see.
    • Easy to use
    • Long lasting power

Care and Maintenance

Cleaning is as easy as it can be as soap and warm water take care of everything. It works well with the water based lubes we use, and is compact enough to store in the night-stand drawer.

Although, to be honest, since we mostly use it for anal play, we just put a cheap condom on it, to make cleaning even easier.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


I have no complaints about packaging. It's simple and straight forward. Easy to open and get the fun started
Follow-up commentary
This is still a high quality toy and would make a great starter toy for any girl. I, however, have moved on to dual stimulators, like rabbits, that provide both an instertable vibrator and an external clitoral stimulator.

I won't speak negatively about this vibrator, but it has spent most of its life in my drawer since I moved on to more advanced toys. I still highly suggest this for anyone getting into toy play. It is a great starter size and not at all overwhelming.

    Thanks for the review. Thanks for the info about the enhancers. A link to it would have been great, but the info was helpful on it's own.
