Traditional vibrator by Golden Triangle

Add resource

Shhh. It's My Secret.

Long story short: Great for beginners, probably less impressive for experienced users. If you're looking to get your first vibrator though, this is an excellent choice.
Simple, Quiet, Strong-ish, Good bang for bucks, Great for beginners
May not be enough for experienced users, plastic cap can come loose during long sessions
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This is an excellent first vibrator for beginners (solos and couples alike)! It can be used everywhere but I use it primarily for vaginal or clitoral stimulation. I would strongly advise against anal. It's definitely slim enough to get lost and satiation of curiosity is not worth the possible trip to the ER.

Material / Texture

My Secret is made of plastic, but there's a slightly velvety touch to the texture (i.e. not shiny plastic) and it slides smooth against the skin. I didn't taste it (not sure if there's an occasion for that) and it didn't smell at all straight from the package.

Design / Shape / Size

It's aptly named My Secret. It's powerful for its size, virtually silent behind a closed door, and if you keep it in the pouch it comes with it's unidentifiable as a toy. Without the pouch, I think it's recognizable as a toy, but not so much that it would draw your attention to it immediately. I've more than once left it out by accident, but it's small and discreet enough that I could just shove it to the corner while the guest's attention is elsewhere.

As in the pictures, it's pretty slim, small, and classically shaped. It's nothing too fancy, but it gets the job done. The lack of a flared base makes it a poor candidate for anal stimulation, but it can definitely be used to tease the exterior. If you're looking mainly for vibrators with serious vaginal stimulations, you may want to look elsewhere. However, I feel the size and shape makes it a great introduction to vibrators for beginners.

One of the things that I had questions about when I got interested in vibrators (aside from whether or not I could hide it well), was not knowing whether vaginal or clitoral stimulation works best for me. The shape of My Secret allowed me to play (ha!) around and experiment. Rather than blowing hard earned cash for a top of the line clitoral vibrator only to find that clitoral stimulations don't work for you, I feel it may be wiser to go with a cheaper option first that allows you to test out both.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Now on to the fun stuff: specs!

It's run by one AA battery, which usually gives me about 330 minutes worth of buzz. I think battery types do affect how strong the vibration is at the beginning of the month, but mid-month, they all feel the same. The vibrations do get weaker as the batteries begin to die towards the later half of the month though.

You can turn it on by twisting the plastic cap (the same way that you put in the battery). A few things to be aware of here: one, it is one-speed; two, don't forget to unscrew it pretty well when you're done. There were times where it just went off by itself because I didn't unscrew it enough; and three, the cap can come undone if your session runs long and the vibration will get weaker. The vibration is pretty diffused through the whole vibrator, but I can get a pretty strong pinpointed vibration by using just the tip of the shaft.

My fingers haven't gotten numb by holding onto it for too long before, but I imagine it's possible if you do since the vibration runs through the whole thing.

I haven't had a chance to test whether or not it's waterproof, but it is definitely splashed proof and I've taken it with me into the shower before with no problem. Just make sure you take it apart afterwards and that it gets completely dried before you put it back together again.

As I said earlier, the toy is fairly quiet and can't be heard behind closed doors or running water. I've used it in dorms before and had no troubles with it being heard. The only word of caution that I will leave here is that it's not so quiet that it can go unheard just underneath a blanket. Meaning, if you've got a roommate, better wait until they've left before you use it.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

My Secret is fairly low maintenance. Water and soap works well for cleaning. Just take the battery out, screw the cap back on (tightly to make sure the water won't get into the chamber), and wash. Afterwards, make sure that the components are dry before you put it back together. If you want to, which I recommend, you can store it in the pouch that comes with it.

Personal comments

I've actually had this toy for over two years now and it's still running as well as it did the first time I got it. It's definitely something that can last and it's well worth the investment- especially when you're just starting out.
Follow-up commentary
I've actually had the vibrator for a couple of years as opposed to two months, but it's still running as well as it did back then. There's a chip in the paint of the cap, but apart from that aesthetic flaw, it's in pretty good shape. And even with some new additions to the toy chest, I still reach for this one often.
