Vivid's swirl marble vibrator - traditional vibrator by Doc Johnson - review by ~LaUr3n~

Swirly and a Bit Ditsy

The Vivid Swirl Marble toy is excellent as an introduction to toys, but it won't do much for the veteran toy user. If you are looking for a cheap travel toy, a party favor, or a toy for a friend looking to try for the first time, this is great. Otherwise, you won't be impressed by either vibration level and may be annoyed by the sound.
Pretty, great as an intro toy, 5 colors to choose from, easy to use
Weak, loud, small
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


If you are looking for a cheap novelty vibrator that looks pretty and does an ok job, then this vibrator might be for you. It was a great price, so I was able to buy a few for some girlfriends as party favors, but I don't think I'll be using mine much since it didn't wow me. It'll be one of my "I don't care about you" travel vibes til it dies or gets lost. The Vivid's Swirl Marble Vibrator is a cute size and is very easy to use. It would also be great for beginners, women who don't need a lot of power, and like smaller sizes. It is not however for women who like deep of powerful vibrations, like to feel full, or want to use this anally. It really can be used by anyone though, male or female for some mild all over body vibration.

Material / Texture

The Vivid's Swirl Marble vibrator is made of plastic that is painted to looks like marble. It is so pretty! This is the prettiest traditional vibrator, under $10, that I have ever seen. The plastic however, is not as luxurious feeling as it looks. The surface is not as smooth as you might think. It feels slightly chalky, and as if it doesn't have a final shiny coat on it. This is fixed with lubricant though. The toy slides in smoothly. The plastic is cheap, but feels sturdy enough and has no smell. It is also free of phthalates and latex, making it safe for those with allergies. Note that plastic is somewhat porous and should be used with a condom if sharing. Since this toy is small, I recommend a smaller condom or these toy covers in size small.
    • No odor
    • Somewhat porous

Design / Shape / Size

This is as traditional shaped as vibrators come. It is average in size as well. At 5 1/2" long, 4 1/2 of that is insertable. The tip is slightly pointy and might bother some, but for me it slid in with now pain to the small circumference of 3 1/8". This isn't something that will fill most, if any woman. This vibrator is not waterproof, so be careful to not insert it too far because juices or lubricant may be able to get inside the battery compartment, ruining your toy. The base is clear and screws on.

The size makes this toy discreet because it can slip easily inside a purse. However, since it is so traditional in shape, it will be recognized right away.
    • Beginner
    • Whimsical / artistic

Functions / Performance / Controls

To use the toy, it has a simple dial base that is very easy to use. It even has grooves, for a slip free grip. To turn the toy on you just turn the dial to the right and it will start the first of two speeds. The first is low and fairly loud. It really doesn't do anything for me. The second is slightly stronger and is a warm up for me. It is also pretty loud. It could be heard through a door for sure. The vibrations are strongest at the tip, but can be felt throughout the whole toy.
    • Easy to use
    • Not very discreet
    • Weak

Care and Maintenance

This toy is as easy to clean as it is to use. Keeping in mind that it is not splash or waterproof, just use a damp cloth and soap to wipe it down. You can also use a toy cleaner. I would not suggest using alcohol wipes on this plastic since it is hard to tell if there is an additional coat to protect the paint. The good thing is that you can use any kind of lubricant with this, so go crazy! Since the plastic doesn't collect dust, you don't need a package to store it either.

The packaging is nice for a cheap toy. It comes in an interesting clear plastic box that hold the toy upright as it sits in an insert. Through the plastic on the other side, you can see a girl dressed in a bikini. The package has some warnings and a bit of information about the toy, but not much.

NOTE: It does not include the single AA battery needed to operate it.
    • Minimal
    • Recyclable

Personal comments

If you want some texture try using these sleeves on the vibrator!


This toy didn't do much for me, but did feel good clitorally. It didn't produce orgasms however and this is why I have to give it 2 stars. It might do more for someone who find more stimulation from vaginal insertion. It does look nice and is a great size and shape as an intro to toys. It also only takes one battery, but the power just isn't there and the noise is high. Despite all this, it still makes a good party favor, gag gift, or intro toy for the price.
Follow-up commentary
Weak, loud, and small. Other than not being safe, those are pretty much the worst things a toy can be. I still maintain this is a good toy for a beginner who isn't looking for much. It also has a cool paint design that is different from other traditional vibes you find for the same price. BUT, for me...this didn't even make it to my travel toy case.
