Velvet pocket rocket by Doc Johnson - review by KrissyNovacaine

Powerful and Poorly Designed.

This toy does not feel good, not is it easy to use. It is frustrating to operate because the way to turn it off can also open the battery compartment. It is moderately powerful, but it has no functions. It's rigidity was not pleasant on my most delicate clitoris.
hard nubs
hard plastic
terrible design
no functions

extremely useful review


I knew this wasn't the toy for me at all, but it was the Eden free toy with purchase, so I figured I might as well get it. The free toys have surprised me in the past, but this was not one of those times.

This is a pocket rocket. Basically it is a vibrator with a flat top for putting against the clitoris. It is made of very, very hard plastic. It could be used to stimulate the outer area of the anus or the nipples as well, but it isn't safe for anal insertion because it lacks a flared base.

It is small, so it could be easy to travel with, but it isn't the most discreet toy in design. Sure, it isn't shaped like a penis, but what else would you use something like this for? Shaving?

Material / Texture

Rigid plastic is what this toy is made of. It is 100% rigid, unforgiving plastic. The top, where you are supposed to place this against your body, has nubs made of more hard plastic. Now, to be fair, some of my favorite toys are hard plastic, but they are designed in such a way that they fit into my anatomy, unlike this one.

I don't like the idea of compressing any sensitive part of myself under a rigid toy. I do have a very sensitive clitoris, so others may not have as big of a deal with this, but for me it wasn't a pleasant experience, especially with my clitoral hood piercing in. Once I removed the piercing, it wasn't as bad, but it wasn't the most comfortable experience of my life either.

Design / Shape / Size

This is shaped like... a pocket rocket? As I mentioned previously, it has a flat plastic top that is intended to go against the clitoris (like that is happening again...) with nubs. The rest of the toy is basically a tube that is 4" long. At the widest, it has a circumference of about 3.25". Again, not large at all, so it would be easy to take with you, but also not discreet in the slightest.

And who needs 3" of plastic to cover their clit anyway? Sorry, I just feel like this is one the worst designed toys I have ever seen.

On the side there is the switch to operate it. The options are open, which opens the toy to access the battery compartment, off, and on. There is a huge design flaw here. Try to turn the toy off and you will end up opening it. Try to close it and you will end up with it on. Getting it to turn off it a frustrating prospect.

Functions / Performance / Controls

For something of its size, this wasn't the most discreet sounding toy, but when you have metal paired with hard plastic, that is to be expected.

The functions on this are well.. non-existent. I mean, unless you count off and open as functions. Then this has three, but I don't, so your choice of functions is on.

As I mentioned in the design portion, the controls on this are very frustrating because turning it off is difficult. It is too easy to turn it on or open the battery compartment when trying to turn it off.
    • Not enough variety
    • Not very discreet

Care and Maintenance

Plastic is compatible with any kind of lube whether it's oil, water, or silicone based. It also doesn't need any special care when storing... Just toss it in a drawer... or the trash. Whichever works for you.

You can clean this with soap and warm water or a toy cleaner. I would recommend removing the battery before doing so because this is way to easy to accidentally turn on.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Personal comments

Save yourself a lot of frustration and buy the High Intensity Bullet or Beaver Shot. Both of them are better for clitoral stimulation and are better quality toys in my opinion.
Follow-up commentary
I still dislike this toy overall. It is too buzzy and hard for me. I need softer toys with more pin point stimulation. This is going into the trash.
