Lucid dream petites no. 16 - traditional vibrator by Doc Johnson - review by Ryuson

Petite not only in stature, unfortunatley!

I WANT to like this toy, I really do, but it just didn't do it for me. As a smaller version of the Lucid Dream No. 28, this is wonderful for beginners. It's very flexible and quiet, but also is very weak in vibrations and is made of a porous material, Jelly. Overall, if you have tried quite a few toys, you won't be impressed.

Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This medium sized vibrator is recommended for both internal and external use, and has light, buzzy vibrations for stimulation. The toy has some nice drag to it, which allows for light nipple teasing or for stimulating other erogenous zones. As far as clitoral stimulation goes; this works well for warming up and teasing, but I found myself longing for a more basic bullet vibe.

Inserted, the ridges are meant for stimulation when thrusting, but I wish that they were just a bit more prominent. It isn't specifically meant for G spotting, but if you're easy to please, this will do well. Flexible and soft, I would recommend this toy for beginners, but advanced users might find themselves wanting things that this toy just can't give.

As a great side note, this toy is relatively anal-teasing safe. The small round ball and even the first tier below it would be safe to insert anally because of the flared shape below them, but I wouldn't recommend inserting this any further.

Great for introducing toys into the bedroom, this non-phallic, 'easy to use and hard to bruise' vibe is a great couples toy. Being waterproof and almost silent, this also would work great for travel and group living situations. If traveling, I'd suggest to keep this in a plastic bag and, as always, take the batteries out of the compartment.

Material / Texture

This toy had a very slight smell upon removing it from the box, but this has faded since washing it a few times. It had no taste that I noticed, and it also hadn't picked up any unpleasant tastes or odors.

Being made of jelly, this toy had an almost tacky feel to it. It has a lot of drag, which is wonderful for nipple and labia stimulation, but lube is definitely recommended for insertion. Jelly is compatible with both water and silicone lubes, and all toy cleaners that I've seen on the market. Jelly is a lint magnet also, so be careful when storing! I'd suggest washing it before and after use just because it grabs onto so much gunk!

Unfortunately, jelly is only rated 2 out of 10 on the Eden safety scale due to its porous nature. This means that not only can you not boil it, but you can never be sure that you've removed all of the germs off of the surface of the toy. Because of this, if you are going to be using this both anally and vaginally, or sharing it between partners, a condom is needed.

The jelly is very flexible, which means that you can't put firm pressure on your G-spot (or P-spot) when it's inside of you. The upside is that this toy won't bruise you, and it's very comfortable to use. If you know that you like flexible toys, this one is for you!

Design / Shape / Size

This toy is a smaller ('petite') version of one of the larger Doc Johnson Lucid Dream's, designed for girls like me that don't like or need a huge girth. It has a round ball at the end which is good for external stimulation, and then has the first flared tier below the ball. After that there is another, much longer flared tier which narrows until you get to the base where the battery compartment is held within the toy.

The area where the battery compartment is held is rigid and firm, while the rest of the toy is very plush and soft. This made it difficult to hit my G spot, but still made it nice to use. I would recommend this as a warm-up toy for sex or something larger or, again, it would be great for either solo or couple beginners!

It's about 6.5 inches long, with 5.5 of that being insertable. At 4.5 inches circumference, this toy is not at all for size queens. If you like it all but the size, the larger version is the Lucid Dreams no. 28 which adds a whole other inch to the length and circumference!

If this toy was found in a drawer, it would be easy to tell what it is. It's good for travel because of how quiet it is, but again; it is a lint magnet!

Functions / Performance / Controls

The bullet is located in the tip of this vibrator, as can be seen on the pictures. This is nice because it puts the vibes where you need them, and allows more control of the intensity. It had what seems to be three speeds; high, medium, and low.

Too bad for this one, not only is he petite in size but also in power! After using my other well loved toys (and even another Lucid Dream) this toy felt almost pathetic. Even on the highest setting, I found it difficult to feel the vibrations when inserted. I would not recommend this if you need strong or focused vibrations.

With these weak vibrations also comes the lack of noise which, as I live in the dorms, is a must. I feel completely confident that no one will know what I'm up to if I take this in the shower, and the people in the next room over will be even more clueless.

As with all of the Lucid Dreams, this one has a very thick, secure O-ring. This makes it not only great for using in the shower or bath, but also allows for ease of cleaning. Just run the whole thing under the water!

It has a turn-dial base which is a bit of a turn-off, but shouldn't be a deciding factor with all of the other 'pro's and 'con's! It's pretty easy to accidentally bump onto a lower or higher setting, but this isn't a big deal since it isn't very powerful to start with!

    • Easy to use
    • Weak

Care and Maintenance

I store this toy in the flimsy box, but would jump at a better option for storage! A plastic bag would do wonderfully, as well, and keep the lint off which is a major concern. I store it in a cool, dark place with my other toys. As a special precaution; don't let this rest against another jelly toy for an extended period of time! They may melt!

I clean this with my System JO Antibacterial Toy Cleaner, but any cleaner should do the job! Soap and water also works if you're on a budget! Overall, this is a pretty low maintenance toy.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


This came with the same box that all of the Lucid Dreams do; a retro, flimsy plastic container. It has the name of the toy and some basic advertising points on the front, and then more thorough information on the toy is listed on the back. It came with no instructions, but none were really needed! The toy is visible through the clear plastic of the box, but there are no naked women or dirty words on the packaging.

I would give this as a gift in this box, but it wouldn't be ideal. It's no LELO box, but it's much nicer than a lot that I have seen!
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Minimal
    • Would make a nice gift


This isn't the best vibe I've ever used, but is far from being the worst! The flexibility and versatility stick out in my mind as being great for beginners, but the shape and the low strength just couldn't get me going. It couldn't hit my G spot correctly, and the vibrations didn't transfer well enough through the toy to bend it forward and use it as a dual stimulator.

As much as I want to like him, I know that this one will slowly settle to the bottom of my toy box and wait for me to hopefully forget about my prior experiences and try again.
Follow-up commentary
This really still doesn't get much use. Between the bad material and the weak vibrations, I have other toys (even in the same price range) that beat this one every time. I really wish that this had just a bit more oomph to it. I wouldn't really recommend this toy, to beginners or advanced users.
