Evaluation Summary

The Doxy Massager is a no-frills workhorse. Straightforward and easy to use, its vibration intensity can be adjusted from gentle to strong, so it's easy on a beginner and also able to please the most demanding of power lovers.

There were some sanitary concerns on its PVC-material head, however fears can be put to rest as Doxy has confirmed that it is non-porous and "free from latex or undesirable phthalates." Purchasers who prefer a silicone head can instead consider the Doxy Die Cast or Doxy Number 3.


Doxy Original has a PleasureScore™ of 92/100, placing it #17 on the PleasureScore™ 2022 Vibrator Ranking Chart.

8 Reasons Not to Buy

  • The Doxy Massager’s head is made of PVC and this raised hygienic concerns among some users. Despite Doxy stating that "the soft head covering is made from a hypoallergenic non-porous PVC that is free from latex or undesirable phthalates," users were skeptical if it was really non-porous.

  • Measuring over a foot long and weighing over half a kilo (1.14lbs), a couple of owners found it large and unwieldly.

  • Some experts disliked that the higher settings felt somewhat buzzy. One wrote, "there has been an occasion or two where I’ve come so fast and so hard it’s quickly become… unpleasant."

  • While its volume was generally found to be acceptable on lower settings, owners complained that it is noisy on higher settings.

  • The body and handle aren’t waterproof, which makes cleaning difficult.

  • According to an expert, the Doxy Massager's bulky head makes it difficult to use in tandem with a dildo.

  • A small percentage of purchasers complained that even on low vibration settings, the vibrations can be felt strongly in the handle, causing discomfort.

  • Some 13% of reviewers complained of its tendency to heat up after 15 minutes of use. They felt uncomfortable; even painful for one.
