Mr Marcus Gold Digger Vibrator 6.5"


Studio: Doc Johnson » Review by Don Houston » Review Date: 6/4/08


XCritic's Advice: Recommended

If you've been reading my reviews for any length of time at all, you might have noticed that I am a staunch advocate of the idea that differing tastes lead to differing conclusions.  I like specific performers and types of toys, but I readily acknowledge that many of you aren't quite as jaded as I am when it comes to getting off.  That said, I was sent a seemingly basic vibrator last week for review, the Mr. Marcus Gold Digger Vibrator in the 6.5" size, and was lucky enough to get my pal Nadine to test it out with me yesterday.  Here's what we found in our extensive bed testing:

The package the toy came in had Mr. Marcus prominently displayed on both sides all oiled up wearing his cap and shades.  Nadine thought that made more sense than having some tiny little female since the intended audience is presumably for the ladies and I can't say that I disagree with her sentiments.  The packaging used a lot of orange and yellow too, with a bold variety of fonts that stuck out from a distance; the toy easily seen through the clear plastic.  The cover advertised "made with Velvet Touch",  "multi-speed control", "non-toxic phthalate-free ABS", and that it was waterproof (though Nate and a few others will be upset to learn it was "made and packaged in China" too).  The standard testing procedures always attempt to test any claims so the first thing I did was submerge it under water after tightly securing the base where the two AA batteries go in to power the toy.  Thankfully, the device was still in good shape and I proceeded to find that the 6.5" included the base so while it technically measured up, the usable length was closer to 5.25" for the nitpickers out there.

The texture of the black device was interesting; not quite hard plastic but not a jelly either, eliciting questions about how difficult it would be to make sure it was completely clean.  As I use anti-bacterial soap to clean used toys, I didn't think it was a problem but Nadine leans to the cautious side of things since it was her biscuit on the testing line.  The base had some cheap rhinestones on it that added visual appeal and I figured a rich man's version would change them out for diamonds but then the toy wouldn't be so affordable (this version can be had for well under $20 at better retailers online).  In all, the look of the device was stimulating and different from most of the market; black toys still limited at this writing (by "black", I mean the color only, not toys designed for black people).

As far as the bed testing portion of the session, it went along smoothly, the Gold Digger handling the job well enough to get Nadine moaning and showing goosebumps on her thighs.  It was deep enough to serve as a primary toy more than just a warm up as the smaller 4" model seemed suited for.  The vibrations went from a very light hum to a modest bee swarm but remember that this is a low cost toy so it wasn't the most powerful toy released by good old Doc Johnson.  The batteries lasted a long time as a result ("a candle that burns half as brightly, burns twice as long" to mutilate the saying) and Nadine remarked that she really liked it.  In this price range, the Gold Digger 6.5" vibrator earned a respectable Recommended or better, the sleek curves of the toy enough to make a gal wet.  There were no gimmicks and while it didn't link to Mr. Marcus any more than most celebrity sex toys do, you could do far worse (there was no nasty smell, the toy worked as advertised, and there were no additional considerations meriting the attention of Nadine or I).
