Velvety Vrooms

The Velvet Touch Vibrator is good for those new to sex toys. It can be used as a vibrator or a dildo and comes at a very affordable price. The vibrations are powerful but they are also very noisy. This toy is not suited for shared living.

extremely useful review


I think this toy is best suited for clitoral stimulation and vaginal insertion. I sometimes use this with my boyfriend, and he enjoys running it along the underside of his penis. I would definitely not recommend this for anal insertion because it does not have a flared base.

I do have to be careful of the angle when using this for vaginal insertion. The toy is completely straight, and the material is not flexible. If I push the toy in too quickly at a bad angle it can be a little painful. However, if you push the toy in slowly to start then you should be fine. Follow the path of least resistance when putting things in your vagina, and everything will go a lot better for you.

This toy would be a great 'first toy' for someone. It can be used as a vibrator and a dildo and is fairly cheap. The size is not intimidating.

This toy could work for solo or partner play. The toy is fairly loud, especially on a higher setting, so I would not use it in a dorm setting.

The toy claims to be waterproof, but I am afraid to test this.

Material / Texture

This toy is made of PU coated plastic. It is phthalate free and is a 7 on the EF material safety scale. The dial of the toy is hard plastic.

The toy has a nice, velvety, smooth texture to it. There is no noticeable smell or taste. I think beginners would be quite happy with this texture. There are no uncomfortable bumps, ridges, or seams.

Keep in mind that underneath the velvety layer, the toy is inflexible, hard plastic. The toy is straight and rigid.
    • No odor
    • Rigid
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

I have the toy in magenta and I love the bright, cheery color. It makes me happy just looking at it!

The toy is a good size for beginners to vaginal insertion. The measurements found on the product page are accurate. The toy is about 7 inches long, with all but 1 inch insertable, and it has a girth of about 3 inches. The tapered end makes insertion easier.

I believe this toy could be easily stashed due to the small size. However, anyone who did find this toy would know exactly what it was.
    • Beginner

Functions / Performance / Controls

This toy uses 2 AA batteries, which I really appreciate. Toys that use nonstandard battery types bum me out. The dial portion screws off and the batteries should be placed inside, positive side toward the tapered end. When I am not using the toy, I take the batteries out. I have had the toy for several months and have not changed the batteries yet.

The toy basically has three settings: low, medium and high. You can change the settings with the easy-to-use dial at the base of the toy. Just turn the dial and the vibration level increases or decreases. All of the settings are fairly loud and powerful. Even the low setting will make your hand feel funny after a while. The vibrations are stronger at the tip of the toy but can be felt along the entire toy.

The lower settings can be muffled by blankets or pillows. Someone outside the room may be able to hear the higher settings even if you try to muffle the toy with bedding. This should not be used in the same room with someone unless you want them to know what you are doing.

I felt the noise level of the toy was very distracting, even when muffled. Even the low vibration setting was too powerful for me when I touched the point of the toy to my clitoris. In order to use the toy, I wrap it in thin cloth and hold the side of the shaft to my clitoris.
    • Multiple settings
    • Not very discreet
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

This toy is made of PU coated plastic so it should be washed with soap and warm water or a standard toy cleaner. It can be used with both water based and silicone based lubricants.

After using, I wash and dry my toy then remove the batteries and store it in a Ziploc bag. Cleaning it is very simple because there are no grooves or texture marks on the toy.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The toy came in simple plastic packaging that explained the type of battery needed, the material the toy is made of and that the toy is multifunction and waterproof. No instruction booklet was included, but it was not necessary.
    • Minimal
    • Very informative


While I still feel the toy is good for beginners, especially considering the price, the vibrations are too noisy and powerful for me. My preferred use of the toy is as a dildo when I am preparing to have sex with my boyfriend, who has a larger than average penis. I also use this toy as a dildo solo when I am wanting just a little bit of fullness.
Follow-up commentary
Unfortunately, this toy died on me. I replaced the batteries and still nothing. It was fun enough while it lasted but I will not be replacing this toy.
