Velvet touch vibrator - traditional vibrator by Doc Johnson - review by Love Bites

Pretty Even In Pink

For me, as a beginner, this was a fun and fulfilling toy. To a more advanced user, this may be very boring because it is so simple and traditional. However, the dial is easy to use/control, and the smoothness made insertion easy and enjoyable.

useful review


This vibrator is great for any beginner, such as myself. It is good for anal and vaginal insertion, wide enough to be felt and cause pleasure yet slim enough not to be intimidating or uncomfortable. It is a straight, 6" long cylinder, so probably not made for G-spot stimulation. However, it felt wonderful when my lover rubbed it against my clit and inserted it into me. This vibrator is wonderful for solo play or couples. This vibrator is good in the bedroom, or any place dry. I tested this out in the shower, and it worked really well. The water masked the noise unless it was pressed against the bottom of the tub or the wall. It was enjoyable, easy to clean and dry, and it still works. Just make sure that the lid is screwed on tightly, as the sticker says. This would be easily identified as a vibrator, but it is travel friendly. It is one of the lightest toys I have, and would easily fit in a travel bag.

Material / Texture

This product doesn't have a smell, and when I licked it, there was a very slight taste of plastic. It is a smooth plastic vibrator, with no ridges or bumps for extra stimulation. The smoothness of the plastic makes it really easy to insert, and yet I had no experience of difficulty holding on to the vibrator even when it was slicked with lube. The texture is more for beginners, because it isn't scary and it eases you into the wonderful world of vibrators. An experienced user may not appreciate the lack of ridges/bumps/extra stimulation, but it may still be a nice change of pace if you enjoy simple toys. It is not flexible, but it doesn't hurt or press in any uncomfortable places when thrust in and out.

I used this product first without a condom and then with a condom. Either way, it isn't harsh when inserted, and slides in and out easily. The plastic isn't so hard that it isn't comfortable. I was actually very comfortable, and aroused while using this.

Design / Shape / Size

I enjoy traditional vibrators because I am just beinning, and I really had fun with this toy. It is a simple design and shape, 6" long. The shape is great for insertion and for rubbing along your slit, but it doesn't have the proper shape to hit your G-spot, so I would say this is better suited for beginners. This would be easy to take on a trip, but easily spottable as a vibrator.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrator has a simple twist bottom that controls the speed/intensity of the vibrations. The screw is not the entire cap, but a small 1 CM dial at the very bottom of the cap (or top,depending on how you hold it). The vibrations are felt throughtout the whole toy but are stronger towards the tip. If your hand is slippery, this may not be the easiest dial to control, as it is plastic and fairly small. The vibrations are strong and loud, so you definately want to be somewhere private if you want to be discreet. There felt like there was only three settings, and they were all extremely powerful. I haven't tested this toy in water, only cleaned it in the sink. It didn't have any problems wheen it came out, but it wasn't submerged either.

The vibrations were just strong, steady pulses. They didn't change or vary. For an advanced user, this may be boring, and for a beginner it may be a little strong on the highest vibration. I know that I like it on a lower setting. It is loud, it may easily be heard. You should be careful of where you use this if you want to be discreet. In my hand I heard it over the lawn mower/leaf blower outside my window. It matched the noise of the shower running when in the bathroom. To me, this is a loud and powerful traditional vibrator.

Care and Maintenance

This toy is plastic, and I wash it with soap and water in the sink. It is really easy to care for, and to store. I have it in my toy bag laying on top of some rope with my other vibrators and goodies. It doesn't affect them, or get yucky or sticky. If you don't wash it, then it may become sticky (due to lube, body fluids, or other liquids that dry on stickily). You should be able to just use toy cleaner or soap and water to get rid of this. Lube works great with this, because it is plastic. It doesn't cause any surprise reactions when slicked up with lube. You can store this anywhere dry, like a drawer, a bag, a toy chest, etc.

Personal comments

I loved this toy. I just had surgery a month or so ago, and this was really my first time using any of the things I bought on this site. It was great. My lover inserted it, and even without the vibrator on, it felt amazing. It glided smoothly and I felt it without it causing any kind of discomfort. My lover was working my vagina with it while he was behind me, and it was comfortable with both holes filled. I am a beginner, and I really do reccomend this toy for other beginners. It isn't too big, and there isn't any intimidating aspects to the design.
Follow-up commentary
This is still very enjoyable for me and my guy. We like to use it, and we actually use this a lot when we have sex. I like to use it on my guy, and he likes to tease me with it. It's fun in the shower and in the bedroom. I brought it with me when I went out of state, I like it so much.

The shaft of the toy is still in perfect condition, still easy to clean and no marks or dents have appeared in it. Unfortunately for me, the twist cap cracked and now it won't stay screwed onto the toy. It almost looks like a piece of plastic that someone shattered. We used it, and afterwords my guy was cleaning and saw that it had cracked very severely. He said we will have to tape it or something, but I don't know. I don't think we will be able to use this toy as a vibrator anymore.

    i wouldn't recommend inserting this anally because there is no base and your butt can easily eat it up; it's good for anal teasing though. how loud is it and could you give us an approximation of how powerful it is? thanks for the review!
  • Love Bites
    It made my fingers numb when I held it on full power,and let's just say that on the medium setting it was loud enough to compete with the leafblower going outside my window.All the way up,I could hear it over the leafblower.Its extremely loud.

    Hope you enjoy
