Sex in the Shower waterproof mini massager - pocket rocket by Sportsheets - review by lemony

The rocket that leaves change in your pocket.

I would recommend this vibrator to any beginners or experienced sex toy owners as a nice feature or back-up to their sex toy collection.
Inexpensive, strong, different caps
Burning smell, cracking of plastic
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This rocket is targeted more towards women and is to be primarily used for clitoral stimulation. It can be used to stimulate the nipples or other erogenous zones. You can use it on a partner as well, you can use it to stimulate the perineum and/or testicles. I would not recommend using this vaginally or anally as it's a small toy that could easily be lost.

The toy claims to be waterproof but I never bothered to try that out. There is a ring to protect from water damage but I never trusted it enough to bring it into the shower or tub.

Material / Texture

The rocket is made out of plastic and is accompanied by four textured caps. There is a rounded cap, 6 circle flower/star shaped cap (my personal favorite), 12 point cap, and then a cap with many smaller points on the cap. I found the 12 point and many point caps to be too uncomfortable to use. The rounded and flower caps were more comfortable to use.

The materials did not have any smell or taste usually. There would be a smell when the motor was run a bit too long. There were black marks inside the toy after a couple months likely from wear.

Design / Shape / Size

The size and design of the toy allowed it to be used during intercourse with a partner and could be easily hidden under clothing. It's a good toy to have on hand if you are traveling as it is inexpensive and small. It could easily hide in a pocket of a purse but might be too large for a pocket on a pair of pants. It does look like a sex toy so if you wanted something more discreet, this isn't the toy for you.

I would recommend this toy for anyone, but it's a great beginners toy. It was my first pocket rocket style vibrator. It wasn't intimidating and the price was excellent.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrator only has one setting, which is on. The bottom cap twists and two metal tongues meet to turn on the motor. A battery should not be left in the toy at all as it would run continuously. I believe if you twist on the cap in a certain way the metal tongues will not meet and you could leave a battery inside the toy but it's not recommended.

The strength varies depending upon how much life is left in your battery. A fresh battery usually makes it a bit too strong but it eventually mellows out and becomes more comfortable. The rocket runs down the battery within a couple uses of it so it's best to always have some AA's on hand. The toy is very noisy, it's very likely it could be heard through doors so I would recommend putting a blanket over it to muffle some of the sound.
    • Easy to use
    • Not very discreet

Care and Maintenance

The rocket is made out of plastic so it's easy to take care of and easy to clean. Some hot soap and water or a little bit of rubbing alcohol should do the trick. I store it in a makeup box that allows it to stand up and not get jumbled around with other toys. I've used it with water-based lubricant only and never silicone. If you so choose, you can use silicone lubricant with it, but there's really no need to use lube for this toy in my opinion.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Personal comments

I have used this toy for nearly six months now and I'm putting it into retirement now. It still works but the level of danger I am facing because of all the cracks in the plastic are not worth it. There is a crack in my favorite cap and two or three cracks in the top portion of the vibrator itself. They are nearly as long as the toy is and have been getting worse with each use.


In my experience with the vibrator, I recommend always using one of the four caps it comes with. I had been using the toy without them and the metal vibrating prongs irritated my clitoris. It caused it to feel itchy for a couple days at a time. I solved the problem by always using a cap. This may not be the same for everyone that uses the toy but from my experience, it helps.
Follow-up commentary
I can't quite choose any of the options of whether I like it or not (I'll settle on "I still like it"). My rocket was cast into the throw away pile soon after this review because it was much too damaged. I have attempted to find a similar vibrator but the one I purchased lasted about a month. Nowhere near the six months I had this rocket for. I have considered purchasing this same toy again because of how much I liked it.

    Great review! I loved that you even told us how many uses it would take to run down the battery and how the strength changed with battery life as well.
