Black magic vibrator - traditional vibrator by Doc Johnson - review by Voir

Blackest Magic

The Black Magic is definitely a good buy. It is easy to use and maintain, and has a pleasant range of intensities for vibration.
Fascinating "texture"
Easy maintenance
Adjustable vibration intensity
Indiscreet packaging

useful review


The Black Magic isn't a high-end vibrator but for the price it is nice. The texture only enhances this opinion. It is probably better for more sensitive people because while the vibrations are good, they aren't as powerful as others may be. The dial allows low vibrations for more of a teasing feel, or stronger vibrations for more stimulation and are good for external or penetrative use. However, the low or middle settings aren't really powerful enough to stimulate internally.

This vibrator would be good for partner or solo play, although there isn't much variation for use. I find it more pleasurable and effective for clitoral and external stimulation than penetrative. It isn't quite as strong as I was expecting.

Material / Texture

The Black Magic is made of plastic with a velvety coating that gives it a lovely, silky feel. It is not as safe as silicone but still measures agreeably on the scale with a rating of 8.
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The design for this particular toy is quite simplistic. It is phallic in shape, without any curves or protrusive texture. The length is about 7 inches, with 6 of those insertable. Although, I think it is probably closer to 5 or 5 1/2 inches insertable depending on how you hold the toy. The circumference is 3 1/4 inches and the diameter is about 1 inch. It isn't an overly large toy. It is about average in length and a bit smaller in girth than a dildo.
    • Beginner
    • Partner play

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Black Magic is quite simple to use. At the base of the toy, where the batteries are inserted, there is a cap. At the base of the cap, is the dial reading Low to High. I was surprised that it would have a ranged setting. The Black Magic requires two AA batteries.

It is easy to manipulate for use. Although there isn't an overly large range of uses aside from penetration and external sensation, especially for clitoral stimulation. I have never attempted to use this toy in a wet environment, however, it is waterproof.

I have found that the turn dial on the end will eventually tighten the screw on the inside of the cap, in the center of the spring. If the dial becomes hard or nearly impossible to turn, just take a small, #0 Philips screw driver, and turn it once or twice to the left which will loosen it enough to make the dial easier to adjust again.

    • Easy to use
    • Not very discreet
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

This vibrator is very easy to care for. A bit of soap and water will manage any cleaning. However, as always, it is preferable to use actual toy cleaner. Take care to avoid liquid seeping inside the toy.

The Black Magic is made of plastic, and is safe to use with silicone and water based lubricants.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The packaging was a very fancy box of plastic. The box listed languages / countries the product is sold in, a brief stint about Doc Johnson, a description of the toy, what the toy is and its measurements. The packaging isn't very discreet at all as it clearly shows what the toy is and states what it is on the front. There were no instruction, though I think the instructions would benefit the toy. It took me a fair amount of time to figure out the mechanics of how to turn the vibrator on. The mechanics are amazingly simple, but left me feeling a bit dim. For first time vibrator users, this could be a bit of a hindrance due to the frustration factor that they couldn't simply flip the box and find a little diagram showing where the dial is located.

    • Not discreet
Follow-up commentary
Still enjoy this product very much. Granted, it is the only vibe I own, but it does get the job done. However, I do have a bit of a complaint about how quickly it drains batteries. They don't completely cease function quickly but the vibrations of the Black Magic weaken after the third use and lose intensity as the battery charge weakens. It is a bit frustrating but removing the batteries when not in use will prolong the strength somewhat.
