Sex Toy Review: MyPleasure Waterproof Pocket Rocket

Here we are in the middle of March and I still find myself wondering about how people spend romantic occasions, such as Valentine’s Day.

Do you spend them with your partner or prefer flying solo? Do you go out to a fancy dinner or keep it low key and cook at home? Do you surprise a loved one with jewelry or maybe you’re more traditional and stick to the flower/chocolate combo?

Well this year – whatever the occasion – I challenge you to spice things up – why not try a sex toy?

Thanks to MyPleasure’s fabulous past event ‘Sex Toy Day’ – I am now the proud owner of my first sex toy, the MyPleasure Pocket Rocket!

Back on November 4th, MyPleasure.com gave 1000 free vibrators away to the first (1000) people to visit the Sex Toy Day website; all you had to do was go to the site at 11AM EST/8AM PST and submit your mailing address. The turnout was extremely high and considering so many people attempted to participate, the website servers crashed.

Once getting the situation sorted out, MyPleasure.com sent out an announcement stating that due to the servers backing up (rather than using the site to collect information) they would be accepting the first 1000 e-mails. Lucky for me – I was on my

e-mail account during lecture when getting this news!

I’ve included a picture of the vibrator next to a business card for scale. Along with the vibrator, I received a free Afterglow toy wipe from Devine Toys, as well as a free sample of lube from Wet.

Materials, Cleaning, & Care

This petite, waterproof vibrator is made out of a clear, red plastic and has three vibrating, metal nodules located at the tip of the toy. Due to the toy being ‘travel sized’, cleaning is very easy using warm water and soap. The toy is operated by a single, twist base – meaning there is only one tempo of vibration available when the toy is turned on. To my surprise, the vibration was much more intense than I expected – yet (depending on the application) I doubt it would be too much vibration for a beginner. The toy only requires one AA battery, which is located tucked inside the shaft of the vibrator (easily accessible thanks to the simple twist-off base).  Although the toy is waterproof, I’d recommend taking out the battery before cleaning the pocket rocket.

Use

Whether used with a partner or while going solo, the MyPleasure Waterproof Pocket Rocket is great for exciting the erogenous zones. As stated before, the toy is petite in size- reaching 4″ in length and 1″ in width. The three vibrating nodules are placed in a triangle on the tip of the toy, providing perfect positioning for clitoral stimulation (yet if you find the vibrations are too strong for direct contact, it may feel better if there is a fabric barrier between you and the toy). Additionally, the toy’s vibrations provide ample stimulation for the nipples, testicles, and areas close to the anus. If you’re looking to make things interesting, considering the toy is waterproof, I’d recommend using it in the shower. The heat of the shower as well as the intense vibrations make for a steamy combo (yes – pun intended).

Summary

The MyPleasure Waterproof Pocket Rocket is a nice single-speed vibrator and is worth checking out if you’re looking for a simple toy. I was extremely pleased with its results; but depending on your personal preferences - the lack of vibration variety may be something to take into consideration. Overall, the sleek, portable design and affordable price makes this vibrator an excellent candidate for a stocking-stuffer this holiday season. It definitely has my approval.

    Much agreed! I loved the idea of ‘Sex Toy Day’ – I think it helped spread the word about MyPleasure.com as well as provide people with a new product to try.
