Velvet touch vibrator - traditional vibrator by Doc Johnson - review by Starkiller87

Add resource

Great for the College kid budget

Cheap and effective. Was a great toy to get into vibrator play. Works well, just not for the everyday user.
Strong vibration, great beginners toy.
You get what you pay for. Broke after a few short months.

useful review


This is a great clitoral use vibrator for the cost. Effective while it lasted. A perfect vibrator for first time users for solo or partner play. Wasn't really a toy for insertion but powerful and quiet otherwise.

Material / Texture

This is more of an outside use vibrator. It's velvety like advertised and has virtually no texture to it. It is very easy to clean, but overall just a basic toy.
    • No odor
    • Rigid
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

Slightly tapered top but slim in design. Six inches not including the twisty battery part. Like stated before, it is incredibly streamline and straight to the point. It is very easy to hide because of how smooth and slim it is, but you aren't fooling anyone with the purpose of it.
    • Beginner

Functions / Performance / Controls

It was great while it lasted. It did what it was supposed to do, nice clitoral stimulation. After about 3 months of fairly regular use, the plastic end for vibration range broke. The battery use isn't an issue and the noise is very minimum. You can't hear it under blankets at all.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Very easy to clean. Run it under warm water with soap or with a toy cleaner. I took out the batteries before I put it away to avoid corrosion. Low maintenance at its best.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


Plain plastic packaging.
    • Minimal


This was my first toy ever. I was at college and didn't have a lot of money. It worked very well, got me off fairly quick. I used it with my partner as well. Although a little too rigid, he had no complaints.
Follow-up commentary
When this vibrator worked it was a good one, especially for a starter. Since then, the cap cracked and I wasn't able to keep it going. I'd have to twist it in an exact way to get the batteries and innards to line up enough to vibrate. And then hold my hand in that exact position. It was way too much of a hassle, so I took a hack saw to it. I cut it up into little chunks and threw it away in the trash.

Would I recommend this to someone else still? Maybe not, even though it lived about over a year. In the end I could have probably scrounged up a little more money to get one with a bit more life expectancy.

    This is a very good first review! And don't worry, as you review more toys it will get easier adding details into them and easier to write them. Welcome to EF!

    I had a very similar one (I believe made by Neon?) as my first toy and I loved it. Worked great for the 7 months I had it until one time I went to use it and found out it wasn't working due to a corroded battery (will not be leaving batteries in from now on). Been looking to replace it as I really enjoyed it and it's good vibrations.
