I Want To Take You Higher

I have all three "Rock Star" vibrators from Doc Johnson and I look at them much like a trio. Stevie is the bass and provides G-spot stimulation that is more rumbly. Tina is in the middle with mid-tones of not being rumbly but not being buzzy either. Janis is also a G-spot stimulator but is designed for those who like the buzzier sensations. Thus, in this trio you have something for those who like the rumbly toys, the mid vibe toys and the buzzy toys.
Easy control dial

extremely useful review


Many people have called Tina Turner the "Queen of Rock and Roll" and her career has spanned over 50 years. She started out singing in night clubs but more recently has sung in Disney movies. In spite of abuse from her husband Ike, she survived by divorcing him and leaving him all their assets as long as she could keep her stage name. She is so well known that the state of Tennessee has named a highway after her. Many consider Tina's music to be "classic".

I share this history because Doc Johnson created a line of vibrators that are their "Rock Star" line. Rock Star Janis and Rock Star Stevie are the two g-spot vibrators in the line, and Rock Star Tina is the classic style vibrator that they created. I believe this vibrator has the potential to become a beloved classic, much like Tina Turner.

Tina is basically a bulged vibrator with four bubble-shaped bulbs or bulges that make up the insertable portion. She can be used internally for stimulation or for clitoral or nipple stimulation externally. You could use her anywhere on your body but she is not recommended for anal use because she does not have a flared base.

Material / Texture

Tina is made of abs plastic for the base and body-safe silicone for the insertable portion. I did not notice any odor when I opened her package and I did not try to taste her.

She is bulged which creates much different sensations when inserted than a smooth vibrator. She is also somewhat flexible as I can bend her top three bulges at about a 10-20 degree angle. However, she will not hold the new shape when you let go of her.

Her silicone is food-grade material which means that she is hypo-allergenic, latex free, non-porous and phthalates free.

She is slightly bendable between the second and third bulges from the top and can flex perhaps 10-20 degrees. However, she will not hold that position.

Design / Shape / Size

I love Tina's design. She works well when we use her for internal stimulation but for some reason, my favorite way to use her is against my clitoris and lips. Her vibrations are fairly strong and they run along her whole length so that my clitoris is stimulated along with my labia.

Her measurements are:

Length: 7 1/4"
Insertable length: 4"
Circumference: 4 1/2"
Diameter: 1 1/4"

I want to take a moment to compare her with another vibrator that has the same basic design but slightly different measurements. Evolved Novelties has created their "French Kiss" which is made of TPR and not silicone. It was my first introduction to bulged vibrators and I prefer it for internal use even though I prefer Tina for external use.

The measurements for the French Kiss are:

Length: 8 1/4"
Insertable length: 6 1/2"
Circumference: 5 1/2"
Diameter: 1 3/4"

As you can tell, the French Kiss is an extra 1/2" in diameter and 2 1/2" longer for the insertable portion. It also has five bulges with the vibrations strongest at the tip whereby Tina's vibrations are spread throughout the whole toy.

Here is a picture of both toys side by side:

I think I prefer Tina for outside stimulation because her vibrations are not focused on the tip and I prefer the French Kiss internally because it is a larger toy and has vibrations near the tip. I wanted to share though about both toys in comparison because some women prefer toys that are larger than Tina.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Tina's vibrations can be felt all throughout her body. When I hold her in my hand at full speed, the part of my hand holding her top bulge starts to tingle while the lower portion of the vibrator feels a bit less buzzy. Her vibrations are fairly strong and I can feel them going up my wrist and arm a little bit.

Her functions are controlled by a turn-dial on her base. To insert the 2 AAA batteries that she needs, you simply remove the base (which is made of ABS plastic by the way) and insert the batteries and then replace the base.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

Because Tina is silicone, you do not want to use silicone lubes with her. Water-based lubes would work best. You will most likely need some type of lube with her since she does have a bit of drag to her. Like many silicone toys, she is also a lint magnet.

Wash her with a bit of warm water and soap but do not boil her or put her in the dishwasher. If you will be sharing her with a partner, I would use a condom also.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


I Want To Take You Higher is a song that was written in 1969 by Sylvester "Sly" Stone Stewart and has been performed over the years by many vocalists, including Tina Turner. I watched several clips of her performing this song as early as in the 1970's and as recently as the last couple of years. Like Tina, the song is a classic.

I chose to use the song title for this review because it was stated in Wikipedia that this song was not meant to be a message song but mainly dedicated to music and the feelings one gets from listening to music.

I Want To Take You Higher

This title seemed so appropriate for this vibrator. Like Tina, I believe it will become a classic and that those who enjoy it will find themselves taken "higher" and "higher" thanks to this toy.

I thought you might enjoy seeing a picture of Stevie (l), Tina (m) and Janis (r) together to see the differences in their designs.
