One day while perusing Instagram I saw a post with a unique looking toy. It was the Velvet Thruster by Velvet Cock. I was very curious about this toy as handsome hubby and I have never had a thrusting toy. So I sent a direct message via Instagram. We ended up communicating via email and handsome hubby and I now have our own Thruster.
This small independent company is founded and run by a husband and wife team with a background in aerospace engineering. They set out to replace larger, more cumbersome, and expensive sex machines with a portable more affordable penetrating device.
I’m pretty sure they’ve accomplished that. Currently there are 4 different models. The base is the same on each. It’s the shape of the thrusting portion where they differ. Our particular model is the Jackie. You can learn all about the other models here.
The packaging for this toy is simple yet attractive. As you can see in the pictures below, there is quite a bit of detail on the exterior packaging showing the features of this fun toy.
- 6.5 Insertable Inches
- 10.9 Total Inches
- Flexible Shaft
- 10 Adjustable Speeds
- 3 Inch Thrust
- Up to 140 Strokes per Minute
- Natural Vibration at the tip
- 1 Year Tip to Tail Warranty
- Medical Platinum Grade Silicone
- Handheld Unisex Toy
- Can be used with Hybrid or Water Based Lubricant
- Approximately 8 Hour Playtime on a Full Charge
- Magnetic Charging Cord
- Easy Clean with Soap and Water or Toy Cleaner
- One Year Warranty on Defective Toys
Please note that although you can clean your toy after use with soap and water or toy cleaner, it isn’t made to be submersed in water such as a pool, shower or tub.
Charging the Thruster is easy peasy. The USB cord attaches via magnets on the toy. Once charged, the toy can last up to 8 hours, depending on the thrusting speed used.
The control buttons are on the bottom of the unit. One to turn it on/off and then up and down buttons used to advance thru the 10 speeds. We mostly used the mid-numbered settings. Although we did briefly take it all the way up just to see how fast it got. That may be perfect for some folks but was a little much for us.
As I mentioned earlier handsome hubby and I have never had a thrusting toy before so we weren’t real sure what to expect. Personally I thought it would be a little odd to have something other than hubby thrusting in my vagina. I have to say, it wasn’t nearly as weird as I thought it would be. In fact, it wasn’t weird at all. It felt great!
To use it by myself as a self pleasure toy might be a bit difficult though. When the toy thrusts it has some pushback so someone or something, needs to hold it in place. For me by myself this is difficult because to orgasm I need clitoral stimulation as well. There’s no way I could hold this toy in place and use another toy on my clit. I need Inspector Gadget arms or Gumby arms to use this toy by myself.
Also, if one wanted to ‘ride’ the toy it could be difficult as the control buttons are on the bottom. So I’m not sure how well riding it would work.
Using it with hubby though is fine. He can hold it and change the speeds while I use another toy on my clit.
We wondered though if it would be even nicer if it had a suction cup base and a remote control. Those features would really take things up a notch. According to Alex at Velvet Cock a new smaller model is arriving later this year. It will have a suction cup on the bottom and the control buttons have been moved to a different location. The new model will also be available in different colors.
As for how the toy feels in use, it’s made of medical grade silicone. The Jackie model is modeled after a veiny human penis with ridges, but it’s still smooth, as in no rough edges. Size-wise, at 1.5 inches width, it’s easy to take in. It’s not too big or too small. Just use a good amount of lube and you should be fine.
If you are playing with a partner we suggest that you not push the toy all the way in as it then makes it more difficult for the thrusting action. It has no where to go. If you insert it only part of the way it can still thrust the 3 inches of thrusting action that it has.
The next time we played with the toy it was handsome hubby’s turn to be the recipient. After all this is a unisex toy. The Thruster is not a toy one starts out with so we worked our way up to testing it in his super sexy ass!
As when we tested it in my vagina, there is a bit of a learning curve on how far to insert it so that it will still thrust correctly. He describes the feeling, once we figured that out, as quite pleasant. If you’ve read our review of the Shequ Prostate Massager there is detailed description of the type of orgasm that handsome hubby had with the Velvet Thruster. He was a happy camper for sure!
Whenever using this toy in the anus, one must use lots of lubricant as the anus is not self lubricating like a vagina can be. Currently I am suggesting the Jo Hybrid of Water-based lube and Coconut Oil. The texture is amazing. Very silky and not sticky at all.
Here’s a short video showing the Thrusting action.
Thank you to Velvet Cock, who sent me this Thruster in exchange for my always honest review. If I don’t like a toy you will know about it. I do not promise a positive review to those who send me toys to review. I owe them and you, my readers, an honest review.
I do like this toy and totally recommend it for someone looking for a genuine thrusting toy. It is well made. I have no doubt that it will stand up to some very vigorous use. One caveat though is that it is not quiet at all. If you are empty nesters like we are that is not an issue, but certainly it could be in certain living situations.
