There aren’t many vibrators out there that are household names, but The Original Pocket Rocket is one of them and it stands out as one of the more accessible, discreet iconic toys. It was one of the first toys I tried, and a lot of that had to do with the famous name that I became familiar with even before I had any interest in pleasure products — I’m talking about hanging out with the kids on my block and making jokes about “your momma’s Pocket Rocket” kind of fame. I don’t think any of us even knew what it meant, but we sure thought it was funny. Come to think of it, perhaps it had something to do with growing up in the neighborhood adjacent to Doc Johnson’s headquarters in North Hollywood, Calif… Several years later when I realized it was an actual product name, I was amused and especially curious. Turns out that this simple, beginner-friendly vibe is more than just a silly name, it’s a classic toy that recently got a modern new look.
The new Original Pocket Rocket comes in a classy white box package with an opening that reveals the toy within. The front of the box features emblems noting the vibe’s recent accolades from mainstream magazines, including being voted Best Clitoral Vibrator by Cosmopolitan and receiving one of Glamour magazine’s Sex Toy Awards. Three of the box’s sides also feature quotes from the magazines praising The Pocket Rocket’s tried-and-true, timeless design. The packaging really changes the look of the iconic toy to a more luxurious, giftable item. Although you see the classic shape and logo emblazoned on it, the matte black look of toy with gold accents plus its clean white packaging give it a sense of revitalization that’s best described as an upgrade.
The classic look of The Pocket Rocket means that it retains its pocket-sized shape that’s topped by three balls that protrude from the top of the vibe to provide external stimulation. The single-speed mini massager also comes with a nubbed removable top that offers another option for stimulation. I can’t say that I have a preference because I’ve found myself reaching for both; depending on what mood I’m in. The Pocket Rocket only has one speed and even for a clit-stimulation fan like me, it’s never failed.
It’s the discreet mini-vibe that became a household name. The Original Pocket Rocket is built around a small but mighty motor that delivers targeted clitoral stimulation, a fundamental part of female pleasure. Reimagined in new colorways with upgraded gold-color hardware and logo, the Original Pocket Rocket redesign offers the same strong vibrations in multiple speeds for solo or partner play. Use with the classic pleasure-beaded cap on for an extra-stimulating texture, or remove it so nothing comes between you and those powerful rumbling vibrations. Pick one up, and get ready to see stars.
