 Max Passion Pocket Rocket Waterproof Clitoral Vibrator 

Max Passion Pocket Rocket Vibrator

The Max Passion Pocket Rocket Vibrator was provided by a sex toy site I had not encountered before, She Plays He Plays. A clean cut site with a bright, easy to navigate interface, the Twitter contact was cheerful and helpful, leading to a friendly email exchange.

After deciding that they would like to enter a sex toy into my June £5 Challenge, they sent this Pocket Rocket which is one of the standard models of sex toys, along with rabbit vibrator, bullet vibrator, dildo, butt plug and the like.

Many different manufacturers and sex toy brands have recreated the Pocket Rocket vibrator, some with slightly different functions or head attachments, all with the same basic format.

The Pocket Rocket vibe I received has been labelled as from the Max Passion brand, whom I had also not heard of before. The packaging was colourful, clearly labelled and without any sordid mid-orgasm demonstrations, as some of the older product lines tend to favour. No, this product has a modern look which appeals to all genders and sexualities, as well as clearly placing itself at a mid price range for shoppers.

This vibrator has been designed for external stimulation, ideally lending itself to use by women for clitoral excitement, or during couples foreplay to arouse the libido of both partners, using it over the erogenous zones.

The Pocket Rocket takes 1 x AA battery which isn’t included so you need to take one out of the sex toy battery stash you have hopefully provided for youself, or add some to your basket when you’re shopping. To switch it on you just twist the base, then twist the other way to turn off again. One speed only.

I slipped the AA battery inside the compartment, which isn’t finished that nicely. There are bits of plastic coming away from the inner section, which would probably stop after your hands have been over the material for some time. I must note that the head attachments suffer from having jutting out pieces of plastic at the sides too, not really conducive to vaginal or clitoral pleasure.

As it states that this is a waterproof vibrator, I tested this out. I was very cynical as to whether the vibe would just soak up the water and never work again afterwards, but I was pleasantly surprised. I even did a little video (mostly as the water is so pretty when it’s vibrating!)

The good

It’s small

It’s quite quiet

It doesn’t take those awful watch batteries

It’s easy to use

Quite chunky, difficult to lose grip

It’s waterproof

The bad

Not powerful enough

Rough finish on the head attachments and within the battery compartment

Battery not included

The verdict

Well I almost orgasmed with this Pocket Rocket, but unfortunately not quite. It just doesn’t have that extra oomph which would tip me over the edge. In addition, although it’s under a fiver I feel the quality of manufacture could have been finished a little more smoothly for use on your intimate bits. I have to be extra careful if using one of the head attachments, in case I snag my clit hood or sensitive labia with some jutting out plastic. That’d kill the mood instantly.

Due to this, I would prefer to use this Pocket Rocket without any of the head attachments, if it could make me orgasm, which it can’t. I have used it on a number of occasions now and it just won’t go!

Therefore I will have to mark this as a fail. Perhaps it will work better on someone with a more sensitive clitoris or those new to sex toys, but if you’re after real power from your vibrator, this one isn’t for you.

Such a shame!
