What a Loud Little Lipstick...

Vroom is a powerful and cute little vibrator, but I wouldn’t recommend it to friends because of its noisiness. This vibrator is more for people that are turned on by the noise a vacuum cleaner makes. I loved the look and feel of the vibe but will most likely leave it in the toy box where it can't wake up my neighbors.
Cute design, Ten different settings, Waterproof, Easy to clean
Incredibly noisy

extremely useful review


The Vroom is a traditional vibrator by California Exotics that works great for clitoral stimulation and orgasm. It is tapered and a bit pointy which scared me at first. It looked a little too dangerous for my taste, but I discovered that the tapered end really helps ease insertion. The toy requires a lot less lube because you are slowly introducing it into your body. It is also wonderful when holding the vibrating flat end against your clit. This works great if you orgasm from clitoral stimulation. The vibrations are strong enough to be used all over the body for foreplay and the Vroom is so user friendly that it can be used alone or with a partner.

Vroom can be used in the tub or shower and is a great companion, if you don’t mind a huge amount of noise. I find that with noisy waterproof toys, the sound of a shower can usually disguise the buzzing. This doesn't work with our little pink friend!

The Vroom is adorable and pink with tiny raised hearts around the bottom. This would make a cute gift if the receiver lives far enough away for the noise to not keep you up at night.

People with rubber/latex allergies beware! Make sure this product is compliant with your body before you purchase it. The Vroom is also semi-porous so be sure to place a condom on it if you are sharing with a non-fluid bonded partner.

Material / Texture

This little vibe is velvety smooth and has barely any drag. It doesn’t pick up lint or hair which I absolutely appreciate in my toys. Except for it’s one fatal flaw (noise) it is amazing. The rubber that coats the toy is extremely thin but adds a little bit of softness to the hard inner section. The pink skin doesn’t squish between my fingers and is about as thin as my fingernail.

The velvety, smooth material feels very similar to skin to me. There aren't any ridges or ribs on the vibrator. Because the vibrator has a hard casing underneath the rubber, it is not flexible. It doesn't bend or twist at all. The Vroom is very sturdy and the battery hatch doesn't wiggle at all.

The material doesn't smell at all and if I hold my nose up super close I can just smell slight rubber. It has no taste to it whatsoever. I love the that there's no taste or smell, and it makes for a great toy... when the motor isn't on to give me an earache.

Design / Shape / Size

Vroom is 6.5" long and tapers at the tip. The shape reminds me of a lipstick. The color adds to this reminder, as I received the bright pink version. The base is covered in tiny upraised hearts made of the same rubber that coats the body. The hearts are adorable but don't add to the functionality of the vibe.

Vroom is well-made and I can’t see the seams on it other than the one that covers the battery hatch.

The tip of the vibe has a tiny indentation which makes this toy a little harder to clean; I don’t want to let bacteria stay in there!

Vroom looks extremely inoffensive and I would easily buy it for a friend who is new to vibrators... if not for the noise. I think the vibrator's power and settings are appropriate for both a beginner and someone accustomed to vibrators.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Vroom features ten settings.

The first setting is a hard, steady buzzing vibration which I was surprised to find in such a small toy. This is my favorite setting but also the loudest. My roommates could probably hear it blasting through my door.

The second setting is a little less intense than the first setting with the same vibration pattern.

The third setting is a vibration that flicks on and off with the same intensity as the second setting. For me strange or pulsating vibration settings don’t work as well as a steady speed, so none of the rest of this toy’s settings were for me.

The fourth through eighth settings all exhibited the same pattern as the third with varying levels of an intense buzz.

The ninth setting escalated from a slow steady buzz to a quick hard buzz, stopping for a slight pause before beginning the pattern again.

The tenth setting is the same as the ninth but with quicker intervals.

There were too many settings for me; I only really enjoyed the first two settings. And it takes time to cycle through all the settings I don’t use to get to the ones I do. The vibrator's settings are located at the base of the vibe and are in the form of two little buttons. One is to turn on the Vroom and the other is to adjust the settings. The buttons are a little hard to press even though they are in a great location. I can reach and press the buttons and don't have to pause in the middle of solo masturbation to change the settings.

This cutie is waterproof but I haven’t used it in the tub, only the shower. The battery hatch screws on tightly, so I don’t worry about its capabilities underwater. Vroom takes AAA batteries which is a bit inconvenient as most toys I have take AA, which seems the standard in vibrators.

The Vroom is the loudest vibe in my toy-box. Even though it is high-quality and gorgeous, I find the noise it makes ruins my solo time. I can’t think about anything sexy over its loud buzzing. And I have to use a low setting that doesn’t stimulate me enough if I want to use it without waking up my apartment mates. I would only be able to use this toy discreetly if I were at a Nascar game!
    • Lots of variety in function
    • Strong patterns

Care and Maintenance

I wash my toys with warm water and soap. You can also wipe them down with a 10% bleach solution or toy cleaner. This toy should be kept in a cool, dry place where it doesn’t come in contact with bacteria. The casing doesn't pick up lint, hair or whatever mysterious particles that many toys seem to attract. I love that with this material I can set this toy anywhere and not wind up with cat hairs "down under."


The toy itself was wrapped in disposable plastic and had a tiny user’s manual. The manual simply showed what types of batteries the vibe uses and how to set the vibrations.

There were no naked people on the wrapper; the wrapping is on the discrete side.

There is no reason to keep this packaging as it can’t be used for storage.
    • Minimal
    • Would make a nice gift

Personal comments

For me this vibe didn't require as much lube as other products because of the tapered tip being so helpful with insertion.


I opened the Vroom up and thought it was the cutest thing! I realized that it requires AAA batteries, which I don’t have a lot of. I fished some out of my TV remote and was ready to try this toy out. I messed with the settings a bit first to make sure I understood them and was surprised at the feel of the Vroom. It’s not very heavy but it feels hard and sturdy to me. I like the velvety texture and it doesn’t seem to be one of those toys that attract a great deal of dirt.

The intense racket the Vroom makes surprised me. I have roommates that live in the room next to me and I would be surprised if they couldn’t hear this toy. The volume is on par with a vacuum cleaner!

I usually need some type of clit stimulation in order to orgasm and it worked great for that. I think the only reason the Vroom didn't make me orgasm super quickly was the embarrassment factor. The noise just broke my concentration and my neighbors must think I was using power tools. I was "remodeling" with a power saw at midnight! I didn’t use it internally a lot because the vibrations are located mostly at the tip and this doesn’t do much for me.

This vibe is similar to many other traditional style vibrators and if you want to save money I would recommend looking into cheaper similar toys. The Black Magic Vibrator by Doc Johnson has a high rating and is less than ten dollars. Black Magic

If you are in love with the Vroom for its super cute appearance I would look into Pirates Katsuni's ancient secrets, it is a cute blue traditional vibe that I love the look of.

Follow-up commentary
This vibrator's battery's don't last very long. The vibrations get a lot weaker with time. I am not a big fan of the boring pink color but I like how lint doesn't stick to this vibrator and it's easy to clean.

    Excellent review darling! This is so cute, but way too noisy for me! Too bad about that because it looks pretty good for a traditional ol' vibe. I'll have to pass and stick with my Freestyle. Thanks for such a beautiful job on this!

    Great review!! Loud toys are the worst. They're so distracting and especially bad if you have people that might be listening in.
  • unfulfilled
    Great job; I find toys that have too many pulsation and vibration modes just not for me. I just need High, Higher, and Highest. I need a lot of power. The noise would definitely be a turn off so thank you for giving us this review. I'll definitely be passing.
