A traditional vibrator for those who like their sex toys powerful and simple.
About the Velvet Touch Vibe
Give yourself the Velvet touch. The Velvet Touch Vibrator line by Doc Johnson are simple yet powerful. They are perfect for those who are new to vibrators or those who want there sex toys simple and to the point.
These classically styled 6.6 inches vibrators feature an incredibly smooth texture, like the velvet they are named for.
The base has a simple dial control that lets you vary the vibration speed to customize your perfect amount of stimulation. These Slim Velvet Touch Vibes are also super-powerful yet quiet.
Customers can even take the Velvet Touch Slim Vibe into the tub or shower, because it is totally waterproof for wet fun.
Design & Features
Doc Johnson has created a vibrator that is very basic. There are none of the added textures or fancy extras for additional stimulation on this one. It is just a bullet shaped design that is straight and smooth.
Although it is advertised as being seven inches long, it is really more like six. The other inch is the piece that opens to replace the batteries and controls the speed. That part is definitely not comfortable on delicate areas.
The Velvet Touch Vibe is fairly small as dildos go. At only one inch wide, it is that “just right” size that is comfortable, even for those parts that are inexperienced with toys or that you may want to break in like we did.
Those who have used other, fancier dildos and vibrators (like the Rabbit and Butterfly) will find this one to be far too mundane. If you have played with several toys over an extended period of time, it will probably be too small for your pleasure.
It is also very limiting. There is no flared base, so it would be very difficult to incorporate into a harness for strap-on activities. And, the only movement, aside from the vibrating, is what you or your partner are able to do manually.
Materials & Texture
Constructed of non-phthalate material, this vibrator is great for people with allergies and sensitive skin. Plus, the outer covering is not that new life-like skin stuff that so many others are made of these days. It is not exactly plastic, and it is not as hard as you would think either. It will not rip, tear, or crack like the others tend to.
Performance & Use
It can also be cleaned easily with just mild soap and warm water. Be sure to dry it well after cleaning to prevent any moisture from getting in the housing/control portion and corroding it.
Its smooth design, gently rounded tip, and slight taper from base to tip make it very simple to insert. It does not cause any friction when used because of the smooth material, however you still may want to use a little lube to make the experience even smoother.
The advertised variable speeds are really just a dial on the end that is adjusted by twisting left or right to turn it up or down. This works really well when you want to speed up or slow down in mid-use.
Care & Maintenance
This vibrator is very inexpensive to operate and requires only two AA batteries. While this might not sound like much, it provides plenty of usability for quite some time. And, true to other reviews, it has a pretty strong vibration when turned up.
Velvet Touch Vibe Pros
- Simple yet effective
- Great price
Velvet Touch Vibe Cons
- Too small for some
- No variety
Overall, the Velvet Touch Vibe is a comfortable vibrator, but nowhere near as exciting as others on the market. It is perfect for beginners or those seeking to enter new avenues of pleasure, and it comes in several colors. Other than that, it was pretty tame for a sex toy.
