When I buy a sex toy aesthetic is important. No matter how good I’ve heard a toy is I’ll be less excited about it if it’s boring looking. They say we eat with our eyes well I wank with mine too. Rocks Off’s latest releases have been ticking my aesthetic boxes nicely. A host of gorgeous metallic beautifully coloured toys. The Rocks Off Touch of Velvet is no exception to this trend.

Rocks Off are well known for their bullet vibes. They have a host of them in a myriad of designs. The Touch of Velvet is a standard size bullet, measuring 3.5 inches in total length and just over 2 inches in circumference. The Touch of Velvet fits nicely in my palm. For me a bullet is never an internal toy, it’s just too small. Were you inclined to use it internally you have 3 inches of insertable length from the Touch of Velvet.

Retro Finish

The packaging is simple, but there is a touch of retro to it. The logo reminds me of Victorian design and there are flowers embossed into the black surface of the box. The side of the box are a mass of pink roses and it adds a quality look to the finish. It’s a nice way to present the Touch of Velvet and it makes the gorgeous colour really pop.

The look of the Touch of Velvet is stunning. Mine is in Rose Blush which is a beautiful Rose Gold colour. The shaft of the bullet looks like brushed satin. Its matt and a gorgeous hue. The Touch of Velvet is available in three colours, Rose Blush, Aqua Lily and Soft Lilac.

The bottom of the Rocks Off Touch of Velvet is a metallic version of the same Rose Gold and against the satin shaft it makes a striking contrast. The shaft feels smooth and sleek to touch, it’s almost silky. Despite being made of ABS there is almost a silicone-like feel to the surface of the Touch of Velvet.

Tapered Tip

The tip of the Rocks Off Touch of Velvet is tapered into as point allowing a more direct stimulation. Being a bullet vibe the controls for the Rocks Off Touch of Velvet are on the base as you’d expect. A single button allows you to cycle through the ten settings and switches the Touch of Velvet on and off.

Yes, the Rocks Off Touch of Velvet bullet has ten settings which offers plenty of variety. Three of these settings are steady speeds and the remaining seven are patterns. The vibrations are pretty good for a battery op bullet. I’ve found if you’re looking for a battery-operated bullet, Rocks Off seem to be the best in terms of vibration. There seems to be more depth and rumble to the RO-90 than I usually find from battery operated bullets. It’s plenty for me clitorally.

Satiny Surface

The battery sits within the body of the bullet. To access the compartment, you just need to unscrew the little metallic end cap. The Touch of Velvet takes a AAA battery. My Rocks Off Touch of Velvet came with a battery included. But there was a small disc of paper over the end of the battery to prevent it from bursting into life. So, you need to remove this first.

So, what was it like to use? I was interested to see how the satiny surface of the Rocks Off Touch of Velvet felt against my clit. I decided against using lube with the Touch of Velvet. Although because it’s made of ABS plastic it would be ok to use with any lube.

The vibrations felt great, the nice tapered tip and small size allowed me to slide it against the side of my clit. Although they weren’t the strongest vibrations I found circling the tip of the Touch of Velvet around my clit was delicious. It took a little while to get there but when I came it was a nice orgasm. The satiny surface certainly felt good and I far preferred this finish to the usual shiny ABS bullet surface. It seemed to add a little friction, possibly from the matt surface and lack of lube.

In Summary

Being a bullet the Rocks Off Touch of Velvet is great for stimulation during PiV sex as well. It’s small enough to be unobtrusive and does the job nicely. The Touch of Velvet is a RO-90 bullet and Rocks Off have had other variations of this bullet. These have been metallic shades and I prefer the look of the brushed satin shaft. I have a Rocks Off RO-80 and I think the RO-90 is more powerful than that bullet.

The Touch of Velvet is waterproof and fully submersible which means it’s easy to clean and can be used for bath time play. I do like the Rocks Off Touch of Velvet. It’s a nice little compact bullet with a beautiful look and some nice vibration to it. It would make a great first bullet or even a lovely gift.

The Rocks Off Touch of Velvet is available from Lovehoney for £15.99.
