A good first vibrator for anyone looking for external stimulation. It's great for clitoral stimulation, or for the nipples or penis.

extremely useful review


This is the classic Pocket Rocket vibrator, in what the packaging calls a "limited edition" black color. It's designed primarily as a clitoral stimulator, but in reality it can be used to stimulate any external part of the body. In addition the clitoris, the Pocket Rocket also works well on the nipples or on a man's penis. You can also use it as a massager for your partner's back and shoulders. While a bit small for that task, it works reasonably well.

Material / Texture

The Pocket Rocket is made from ABS plastic. ABS is a safe but durable material commonly used in everything from children's toys to kitchen products. It completely non-porous and phthalate-free, and is generally considered very safe for the body.

The business end of this vibrator has three metal knobs to deliver stimulation directly to your clitoris. The vibration can be felt throughout, but it's strongest on these metal bits. The vibrator also comes with a plastic cap that can fit over the end of the vibrator. This cap provides a different texture, made up of a dozen pointy nubs, which provides a somewhat different sensation.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

The Pocket Rocket is four inches long, but it's not an insertable vibe so its length doesn't really matter much. It's just long enough to fit comfortably in your hand during use. The business end of the vibrator is a little under an inch in diameter, about 7/8 of an inch.

The toy's small size makes it easy to conceal, and also makes it easy to pack for traveling. (Just be sure to take out the battery, so it doesn't turn on unexpectedly!) It has a relatively nondescript appearance, so it's not immediately obvious as a sex toy.

The non-threatening appearance also makes it a good toy to introduce to a partner who may be intimidated by a larger toy, or toys with an anatomical shape.

Functions / Performance / Controls

This is a simple toy, with just a single speed setting. The bottommost part of the vibrator is a combination battery compartment/power switch. You twist it to the left to open the battery compartment, or twist it to the right to turn on the vibrations. The middle position is the "off" setting. It's easy to use, but the battery compartment can pop open unexpectedly if you turn the dial the wrong way. This can be frustrating at first, but once you learn which way to turn the base, it's pretty easy to avoid opening it accidentally.

The vibrations are quite strong, especially for a toy which uses only a single AA battery! This is probably due to the use of a high quality motor. This toy is manufactured in Japan, where they tend to use higher quality components.

The single speed is mid-ranged. It's deep, but it's not annoyingly buzzy either. It's a pretty good place to start if you don't know what kind of vibrations you prefer. It is somewhat noisy, as hard plastic vibrators are apt to be. Also, the vibrations shake the entire toy, so after prolonged use you may discover your hand starting to become numb.

Care and Maintenance

The toy is hard plastic and can be cleaned fairly easily with hot water and antibacterial soap, or with any toy cleaner. If you need to disinfect it, you can wipe it down with isopropyl alcohol. If you want to share it with a friend, though, it's probably easier (and definitely safer) to put it inside a condom.

This toy is not waterproof, unfortunately. So be careful not to get water inside it when cleaning it, and don't use it in the shower or tub. There are several other Pocket Rocket toys on the market which are waterproof, so if that's something you desire in a vibrator, be sure to buy one of the waterproof models instead of this one.

Hard plastics such as ABS are compatible with all types of lubricant, so you can use your favorite lube, whatever that might be.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The Pocket Rocket comes in an easy-to-open plastic package. The outer portion just slides off the inner tray. There are no pictures on the packaging, just text, and there are no overt references to sex at all. It's billed as a "discreet massager" and the text on the back talks about using it to massage your body. Anyone familiar with sex toys will probably be able to read between the lines easily (and will likely recognize the Pocket Rocket name or the Doc Johnson logo) but a child or anyone else not familiar with vibrators wouldn't be likely to know what it is.

The packaging would not be terribly convenient for storage, nor is it a particularly attractive as a gift, but it's inoffensive and gets the job done. The marketing text is rather uninformative, aside from saying that it's made from phthalate-free ABS plastic and warning the consumer to avoid submerging the toy in water. But a lack of useful information is the tradeoff for being inconspicuous. The toy is easy enough to figure out, so it's probably a good choice.
    • Minimal


My girlfriend found it a serviceable vibrator for clitoral stimulation, but she's been spoiled by more expensive toys and will probably not use this vibrator as often as some of her others. But I found it quite effective on my nipples (second only to the Eroscillator) and pretty good on my penis, as well, especially on the inside of my foreskin.
