Pretty Purple Popsicle

The Velvet is a beautiful little gently curving vibrator that is quiet, discreet and easy to store in the pouch provided. While this isn't the most powerful vibrator around it is sure to please all but the most demanding speed queens!
High grade silicone, very quiet, discreet, beautiful scroll work
A bit on the short side

extremely useful review
Premium German engineering, that's the promise of Joystick's 'Velvet'. It certainly arrives in an impressive and eye-catching package! The box is full sized and seems to be standard for the vibrators of this line. The box is lightweight cardboard with a silver metallic background and black writing. The vibrator is clearly visible in its box kept safe and snug in a plastic form with foam bumpers to prevent the toy from rattling around during shipping. The plastic form is WAY larger than the toy so if your storage space is limited you'll need another place to keep your new friend. Joy Division has thoughtfully solved this dilemma by providing a soft, silver, satin-esque bag with a drawstring top. Since this lovely little vibe is made of medical grade silicone it picks up lint like crazy so the pouch is a wonderful addition to the vibe. Joy Division also provides a small sample of their water based lube 'Aqua Glide' and a folding instruction manual detailing proper care and use of this little guy.

This is a sweet looking little toy. It is a beautiful shade of purple and has some really pretty scrolling textures that are all for show as they cannot be felt during penetration. The toy measures around 5 1/2 inches in total with only 4 1/2 inches insertable, it is 4 1/2 inches around at the widest point though so while short this toy is fairly girthy! It is also very flexible and can be bent with just a little force easily from the middle of the toy to the tip. This means that when it is thrust inside the vagina it won't cause bruising or be horribly poke-y.

This is a traditional dial based vibrator which means that it has a steady progression of speeds from a fairly vigorous but light vibration to a slightly more powerful but deeper vibration. The Velvet will please those users who like lighter vibes, but those who need more power and speed might be disappointed. This is a very quiet toy that can barely be heard above the covers let alone be heard through a closed door. The vibrations are more easily felt at the tip of the toy but the motor is about 2 inches into the shaft so you can feel the vibrations from the dial base to the tip easily. It is amazing for pinpoint vibration and for larger areas of stimulation. My g spot is located easily and this toy was able to reach it but this may not be true for all users. The toy has a gentle curve to it that can help reach your spot and whether you like gentle stimulation or lots of pressure this vibrator can deliver.

The Velvet runs on 2 AAA batteries, I couldn't find any instructions on battery placement but I found that putting one battery in positive side down and the other in positive side up is the proper set up. The toy has a touchy dial and you may have to tighten and loosen the dial a few times to get the contacts to line up correctly. This toy is water resistant which means that it has a plastic washer to help seal the battery compartment but it's not meant to be held underwater for long periods of time. It is great for shower play and for thorough cleaning but not for bath tubs.

The Velvet is non-porous, phthalates free, hypo-allergenic, made of food-grade materials, and latex free. It is made of 100% medical grade silicone with a hard plastic dial cap over the battery casing. It is small enough to be non-threatening to new users or those who prefer a smaller toy. It is not advisable that silicone lube is used with this toy as it could bond with it thus ruining your toy. To clean this baby, wash in soap and warm water followed by a spritz of toy cleaner will suffice. You could pour boiling water over the toy but it is not boilable or safe for the dishwasher.

It goes without saying that this is not meant to be used as an insertable anal toy due to its total lack of a flared base and should you desire to share your toy clean before passing it over or use a condom!
For the life of me this toy reminds me of a purple popsicle! I love that this toy is firm and yet very pliable. It is girthy enough to satisfy the size queen in me but not quite long enough, still it has quickly become one of my favorite vibes for clitoral stimulation. I love using it to help me relax when we want to play anally, though it can't be inserted safely it can be covered with a well lubricated thin condom and then used to help the outer sphincter relax. It is also great for teasing the guys, they love it because the vibrations are not high pitched and buzzy which can cause some discomfort to the delicate areas around the testicles.
Follow-up commentary
Though this isn't a long toy it is great for those long, slow sessions. It has been washed fully submerged in the water stream and I haven't noticed even a drop of water where it's not supposed to be. It picks up lint like a magnet but the pouch it comes with keeps it relatively hair free.
