Velvet touch vibrator - traditional vibrator by Doc Johnson - review by Newmie

Add resource

Well, it does what it says it will.

This is a great introductory vibe for those looking to start using toys. It is not intimidating, but I fear it is too easy and will get boring quickly. It feels great to the touch and easy to clean. It's a good basic to have in the kit.
Good vibrations,
Good length,
Good price.
Too basic,
Hard to turn off sometimes.

useful review
This is a basic vibrator...the first one I ever owned, in fact. It always lacked a little something. I found the vibrations to be pleasant, but something seemed to be off that I still cannot quite put my finger on it.

That being said, it is a great basic vibrator. I love the velvety feel of it most of all - it feels so unique and great with lube. It is easy to clean and store. I love using vibes in the shower, and this one is waterproof, so it is good for that. Unfortunately however, turning it off can be a little tricky, and you may open up the bottom a little. I did that in the shower without realizing, and now the bottom is rusted on the inside. I no longer feel comfortable using it fully submersed.

The length of this vibrator is 7 inches. It seemed scary until I really started exploring it and had my hand on the bottom two inches. It is perfect for insertion, although it is not a g-spot simulator, at least for my anatomy. My favorite part about this vibrator is the fact that, even at full power, it is still relatively quiet. I did a test under the covers, just keeping it on, and my roommate didn't even notice. Being discreet is a huge plus in my book.

My biggest complaint for this toy is the twist-turn on/off mechanism. It is not the easiest to do with one hand. If you turn it the wrong direction, you unscrew the cap, and it either comes apart, or the seal opens to allow water in. It can also be hard to twist with one hand. Mine seemed almost stuck. I am not sure if that is normal or not. The one thing that the twist-turn on/off does provide is direct control for the strength of vibrations. If you want a buzz "between" levels, this is a great alternative, since you are able to twist it to your desired buzz.

Overall, if you are unsure where to start, this is a great toy to begin with, and you can move on to others from there.
Follow-up commentary
This quickly became too basic for me and I ended up tossing it. Great for beginners but this just doesn't quite hit the spot for me anymore.
