Perfect for Beginners!

Overall, this vibe has been a perfect choice for me and is among my favorites. Out of all the ones I have tried, the Velvet Touch Vibrator has been the most enjoyable vibe I have ever owned. I highly recommended it for any beginner!
Gorgeous color, Unrealistic appearance, inexpensive, waterproof
The plastic's hardness which can be a little strange at first
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Velvet Touch Vibrator is one of my first toys and it has become one of my favorite vibes. Its texture is one of the main reasons that this vibe is among my favorites (that and the fact that it is waterproof). As another reviewer has stated: it feels more like soft microfiber cloth than plastic. This is impressive given the low cost of this vibe. Personally I have found this toy to be more fun for warming up and then using a dildo for the main event. This is only because for me, the width is a little small to be truly satisfying. That said, this vibe held against your clitoris while using a dildo can be really enjoyable and satisfying.

If you are a beginner looking for your first vibe, I highly recommend The Velvet Touch Vibrator by Doc Johnson. This is truly the perfect choice for beginners due to its width, length, unrealistic appearance and its smooth velvety texture. This vibe can be used vaginally, for clitoral stimulation or on any other external part of the body (the vibration feels wonderful on your neck when you are having a headache). The price also makes this vibe a perfect choice for beginners as it is inexpensive yet worth every penny.

Material / Texture

The Velvet Touch Vibrator is a traditional vibrator with a straight unbending shaft. Unlike many vibes on the market, this one is made phthalates-free hard plastic and is coated with polyurethane giving it a smooth velvety texture. I have owned this vibe for 4 months now and have not had any problems with it at all, nor has the coating worn off in any way. Personally, I think this is wonderful given the price. The vibe is also totally odorless and tasteless. As someone who has sensitive skin and many allergies, I have found that unlike other products on the market this vibe is hypoallergenic and safe for those with sensitive skin. Since the Velvet Touch Vibrator is not porous, it is very easy to clean and care for - something which is always important to look for in a toy if you have allergies or sensitive skin.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The design of the Velvet Touch Vibrator is unrealistic - it looks nothing like a penis at all! Personally I love this, as the unrealistic appearance makes it so that it is not as embarrassing if someone else finds your vibe. Its unrealistic appearance can be very beneficial for those who have been sexually abused, as the shape and cute color of this vibrator are non-triggering. The velvety texture is also a big plus as it is totally non-triggering for me. It feels like a soothing wand inside you that is thin enough to feel nothing like a penis at all. As someone with PTSD from sexual abuse, I have to say that this vibe has been very useful for helping me to overcome aspects of my PTSD. It has been so helpful that I have ordered a more realistic dildo to go with this vibe! This is personally a huge improvement for me. If you are looking to make sex a non-triggering event, then I highly recommend this vibe as it has helped me big time! Personally, I recommend buying this vibe in your favorite color as the color also seems to add to the fun. I love the gorgeous light pink color of my vibe.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The controls of this vibe are very simple. All you have to do is simply twist the dial on the end of the wand to increase or decrease the power of the vibrations. The vibrations start out light and a little buzzy on the low settings. But they can go very fast on the high level and be pretty intense. To test the vibrations, I held the tip of the wand next to a bar of soap and found that I can write designs into the soap with the tip. Yeah, it's that strong on high for such a low price. The Velvet Touch Vibrator operates on two AA batteries. The battery life is pretty good. If you use it three times a week, the batteries will last about a month with the first two weeks being the strongest level of vibrations. When it comes to the level of sound this vibe makes during use: the Velvet Touch Vibrator is not super quiet nor is it very loud. Personally I highly recommend using this vibe in the shower as it is waterproof and the sound of the shower drowns out the buzz of the vibe. No one will ever know that you are doing anything other than showering! Plus, the velvet coating combined with water is a very nice combination.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

The Velvet Touch Vibrator is very easy to clean as it is non-porous. Personally, I have found that that the dish detergent that is made with bleach in it cleans the vibe perfectly. Just let the soap sit on the vibe for a few minutes and wash under running water (such as the shower head). It is also very easy to store due to its narrow width. You can hide it in any drawer in your bathroom and simply place a cloth over it to hide it. Personally it's best if you have your own drawer. Simply place a small towel over the vibe and then surround it with your beauty supplies. No one will ever find it that way!

Follow-up commentary
As a follow up to my review of the Velvet Touch Vibrator, I would like to note that the vibrator I purchased has become less quiet with use. This can be an issue for some people. The sound increased after changing the batteries, and even after checking to ensure that everything is in place, the loud sound remains. Thankfully, however, the sound is only loud when the vibrator is turned to the maximum vibration. Personally, I have found that if you have a fan going or a fan heater on, the sound is still undetectable to anyone that's outside of your room. I would highly recommend using this product in the shower if sound is an issue for you. I still love this vibrator; I just wish that it would have remained quiet. Overall, I still highly recommend this vibrator for beginners; it is a good product at an affordable price.
