Black rose secret garden vibrating panties - sex toy by Doc Johnson - review by JessiShey

Secret Garden Needs More "Fertilizer"

This product needs work in the vibration and comfort areas when used as a wearable sex toy. However, it is a very sexy lingerie piece that will keep your lover staring! You might even see a little drool!
fashionable, great material, easy to store and clean, good vibrations
sound not discreet, uncomfortable in clothing, adjustment issues with vibrator, difficult
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Secret Garden panties are used for foreplay and clitoral stimulation. It's great for both purposes, but it isn't something that will "get you there" without extra help. It is of course, a pair of panties with a bullet vibrator that fits inside a pocket in the bottom.

This product would be great for anyone, from girls who want to tease themselves a little, or guys who want to make their girls want more! The best time to use this toy would be... anytime! Whether you're relaxing on the couch, playing in the bedroom, or going out for a night on the town, it's great for any occasion. However, going out in public might be a little embarrassing, seeing as how it's not that quiet, and it might look like you have an unpleasant itch if you try to turn it on or off -- unless you go to the bathroom!

This product also looks great by itself! I think more people would consider it a great addition to their lingerie collection, rather than to their toy collection.

Material / Texture

The material is one of the two things that I love most about this pair of panties. It's made of a stretchable silk that feels luxurious on your body! The straps are a little smoother, but you can barely tell the difference. The elastic bands that go all around the outside of the panties, and on the inside around the holder, are unnoticeable to the touch. Honestly, if it wasn't for the sides lightly touching my legs, I wouldn't even know I was wearing them until I put the vibrator part in.
    • Smooth
    • Stretchy

Design / Shape / Size

I really like the design of the panties. They're basically a "one size fits most". The adjustable ties on the sides makes it to where it can fit up to a 54 inch waist. Also the black part of the panties stretches with your size, so it covers what it needs to cover up and would look sexy on anyone who wears them. The ties on the sides are one color which is purple. I really wish they made them with different colors so you can feel sexier with you or your spouses favorite color. One thing I don't like is in the top corner of the left side it has an ugly leather black rose that sticks out a good ways. It's not very sexy looking and doesn't do anything for the look of the panties. It's the only thing my fiance doesn't like as well.

The vibrator holder on the inside is actually a great thing on the product. It has an elastic band attached to the vibrator sleeve and the edge of the panties which helps you grab hold of the sleeve and insert the vibrator easier. The sleeve is a perfect fit for the vibrator and keeps it snug and in one place. When the vibrator's in place it doesn't have that big of a bulge so it looks good with jeans or shorts, but it might be a little uncomfortable when not turned on, which makes me think it might be more comfortable if it was a thin vibrating pad of some kind. Also, you might need to keep tightening the ties because they "settle", get loose, and your panties might sag with the weight of the vibrator.

When wearing the panties by themselves, you can hide the vibrator in your purse or your pocket. It's very discreet for travel as well. With the sides, you can tuck them inside your clothing or look fashionable and cute letting them hang down in a bow.

The bullet vibrator is waterproof so be sure that the top is twisted on tightly. It has a single rubber button at the top and it's a little touchy so you shouldn't have any problems switching settings but it can be difficult when trying to do so over clothing. The vibrator itself is very small and feels velvety smooth. In the images you can see the size of the vibrator compared to the length of a regular cigarette, and the twist top with one of the batteries.

    • Beginner
    • Discreet look/design

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrations it gives are actually very decent. Although I wish it had more of a variety of settings, it comes with 3; a low, medium, and high speed. All three are consistent with no pulsating or escalating rhythms. The vibrations are real buzzy that tickles more than anything. The noise isn't very discreet. I don't think it would have to be unless you're going out on a romantic date, or to dinner with your family. It has a somewhat low buzzing noise that can easily be heard by people close to you. Depending on the surface that you sit on, this can also be a noise factor; it can make it much louder. Honestly, I think it should come with some kind of remote. As I said before, it could be embarrassing in public. To adjust the settings or to turn it off through clothing, it might look a little awkward to people who can see you. You might have to keep excusing yourself to go the bathroom, or just be blunt about it and say "What? I have vibrating panties on. Don't judge!"

The vibrator has 3 cell batteries that are included and should work as soon as you get it out of the box. Each battery is about half the size of a dime (circumference wise).
    • Multiple settings
    • Not enough variety
    • Not very discreet

Care and Maintenance

To wash them, just put them in slightly warm water with detergent and hand wash only. Lay them flat out to dry or tumble dry on low. Afterwards, you can just store them in your lingerie drawer or with the rest of your clothing. The bullet is water proof. Care for the this with toy cleaner or warm water. Make sure it's tightly screwed together so you don't ruin the batteries or the bullet itself.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


When I saw the box it came in, my thoughts were, "Wow, even if I don't store the panties in it, I'm keeping the box just because it's pretty!" It's slim with beautiful graphics.

Taking it out of the box, it has the panties wrapped about a very thin piece of flimsy cardboard, to keep from wrinkling, and then a thin sleeve of plastic over that. Also inside the box with them, it has two of those silica gel packets. If you have children or pets in the house, you might want to throw these away immediately.

    • Good for storage
    • Would make a nice gift

Personal comments

In my opinion, the vibrator isn't really that impressive for ME. But then again, I'm someone who isn't much into foreplay. I'm very impatient! I just think this is a very adorable lingerie piece rather than a wearable sex toy.
    • Fashionable


I played with it for a little bit and came to the conclusion that a built in vibrator pad would probably be a better alternative for the bullet. However, both me and my fiance just love the way it looks on me! If it wasn't for the price, I would highly recommend it as a fashion piece!
