Velvet pocket rocket by Doc Johnson - review by sunkissedJess

My Purple Pocket Rocket!

The Velvet Pocket Rocket is your average pocket rocket. I usually like this pocket rocket when I don't want a super-powered toy to get off. It's a bargain sex toy and a great purchase for beginners. Since beginners are usually unsure of what sex toys will best suit them, the Pocket Rocket has an inexpensive price tag that is very appealing. It's the perfect way to test out a sex toy without spending a lot of money.
Good for beginners
May not be powerful enough for some
Only one vibration mode

The famous Pocket Rocket has been around and doing it's thing for years. I was first introduced to the Pocket Rocket back in my first year of college, and since then the rest is history. Pocket Rockets are a staple sex toy that every women of any background or experience level should have available at any given moment. The Pocket Rocket is a battery operated, single-speed vibrator that focuses on precise clitoral stimulation, and the nubby head gives your clitoris an arousing massaging effect for added stimulation. The Pocket Rocket is great for using during foreplay and sex, but it's best for self-stimulation. It's a very versatile sex toy that both men and women can enjoy alone or together. It's also one of the most travel friendly products out of all the sex toys out there.

Material / Texture

The Velvet Pocket Rocket gets its name because of the velvety feeling of the plastic. This toy is made of a firm plastic that has a velvety feeling to it, and effectively delivers light and arousing vibrations. The plastic material is a body safe material that is odorless, non-porous and phthalate-free. The velvety texture is an absolutely fabulous material that feels so sensual against the skin. Included with the pocket rocket, is an attachable plastic cap with little nubs all over it. It's great for those who really like texture, but I was not a fan of the attachable plastic cap. The vibrations from the metal knobs can become uncomfortable after a while. I like to apply a lot of pressure, so I prefer materials that are a bit softer.

    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

Velvet Pocket Rocket:

4" total length
3 1/4" circumference
1 AA battery required.

The Pocket Rocket is a toy you can throw in your purse and take with you anywhere. It is small and handy, it looks cute, and it's easy to use and to hide. This is a convenient and effective vibrator for on-the-go. It is very simplistic, and it's the perfect size for traveling. It can be easily hidden inside of a suitcase or in a small or large purse. It's pretty discreet when it comes to size, and unless you know what a pocket rocket is, not many people would know what it is used for. In my opinion, the pocket rocket doesn't really scream sex toy.

    • Discreet look/design

Functions / Performance / Controls

The first thing you will need to get your pocket rocket going is one AA battery. With that being said, you really don't get all that much power with one AA battery. It has one speed, and though it is not very powerful at all, I think it's just the right amount of vibration for a good experience. Turning the toy on and off may be a bit tough for some. You have to put a little strength into it. With weak vibrations, you get a very quiet vibrations. You're not going to have to worry about anyone hearing this toy through a bedroom door. There are no pattern vibrations or choices of vibration intensity. Overall, it's a pretty boring toy when it comes to functions and controls. There's really noting fancy about it.

Care and Maintenance

The Velvet Pocket Rocket is 100% waterproof, making it very easy to clean. You can clean your Pocket Rocket in warm water with a mild soap, your choice of toy cleaner, or even toy wipes. There is a lot of texture going on at the head of the pocket rocket and the plastic attachment, so make sure that you clean the textured areas very carefully. You don't want to leave any kind of bacteria behind. I like to clean mine really well with my toy cleaner, then for added assurance, I go over it with my toy wipes. Overall, the plastic material is easy to take care of, and it's compatible with both water-based and silicone-based lubricants. It's also okay to store with other sex toys, and it doesn't take up much space.

When I first received this Pocket Rocket, I had already moved on towards stronger vibrators. I don't use this vibrator all that much since I'm spoiled by other vibrators that are better than the Pocket Rocket. The Pocket Rocket didn't impress me as much as it probably would have had it been one of my first vibrators. I recommend that experienced women choose a more powerful multi-speed clitoral vibrator.

When I do use my Pocket Rocket, I usually use it with my partner and we use it for clitoral stimulation when we have doggie-style sex. I am able to comfortably hold it on my clit while I am being penetrated from behind. Truth be told, that is probably my favorite way to use this vibrator.
