Bullet Vibrator Guide

What Is a Bullet Vibrator?

Bullet vibrators are small, bullet-shaped vibrators. They are usually designed to stimulate the clitoris and are made of either silicone or body-safe metals like aluminum or steel. A sex toy classic, bullet vibrators are often the first toy people with clitorises try out, and for a good reason. They're simple and require less maintenance than other options with more parts. 

How To Properly Use a Bullet Vibrator?

The mechanics of bullet vibrators are easy: press the vibrating toy against sensitive areas for stimulation. It seems straightforward, but there are many ways to use them.

Positioning

Holding the tip of the vibrator to your clitoral hood is a classic choice. It delivers intense sensation to a compassionate part of your body. But there are other positions to consider. You can hold the entire length of the vibrator against your vulva for more widespread coverage. Or you can control the tip to other areas of your vulva to reach parts of your clitoris below the surface. Explore different positions to find your favorite.

Use During Partnered Sex

You may have masturbated with a bullet vibrator, but it can be great with a partner, too. You can use it for foreplay, stimulating breasts, inner thighs, and even feet. Partners can get a lot of satisfaction from teasing you and seeing you get turned on by a toy. 

Add Movement

Move your vibrator in any way that feels good. Doing more than just pressing it flat against your clitoris could have excellent results. If you enjoy the pressure, try placing the vibrator against a pillow so you can put your whole body weight on it and move against it. 

How To Use a Bullet Vibrator for the First Time?

Vibration may feel intimidating if you haven't tried it before, but with the right preparation, you'll be ready for a great time. 

1. Turn on the Toy Before Using It

When you're by yourself, please turn on the bullet vibrator see how loud it is. This will avoid undue stress when using it for the first time. Familiarize yourself with the toy's buttons and the intensity of the vibrations so you know what to expect. 

2. Read the Instructions

Your sex toy will come with instructions. Please read them! Get to know your toy's limitations, such as battery life, water sensitivity, or types of lubricant to use. Follow charging and cleaning instructions, so you're ready to go without interruptions.

3. Set the Mood

For the best experience with your magic bullet vibrator, make sure you have a space to yourself and won't be interrupted. Add mood-setting touches like music or candles, and have any materials you'll need, such as towels or lubricant. 

4. Add It to Your Routine

If you're used to relying on your trusty fingers for clitoral stimulation, go through your routine before introducing the bullet vibrator. Vibration can be intense for people who haven't tried it, so already being stimulated will help you be more prepared. People with clitorises tend to have minimal refractory periods (usually mere seconds), so adding a toy near the end can be a great way to intensify a session.

5. Take It Slow

At first, you'll want to use the gentlest settings of your toy. If the lowest setting feels too tame, ramp it up to the following highest setting. It may take a few sessions to find the intensity level that works for you. 

Types of Bullet Vibrators

Bullet vibrators come in a few flavors. Get to know your options, so you pick the best bullet vibrator most likely to tickle your fancy.

Wands

Wands are more significant bullet vibrators shaped like a wand. They may not be bullet-sized, but they serve the same purpose of outer stimulation. With the larger size, they can sometimes deliver more powerful vibrations because of the increased room for motors.

Mini Bullet Vibrators

On the other side of the spectrum, small bullet vibrators can be around the size of a bullet. These can be a great option if you're looking for something discreet that's easy for travel. You'd be surprised at how much stimulation can stem from such a small device. 

Textured

While many bullet vibrators have a smooth metal surface, others may have textured silicone on end. Certain textures may feel better on your body than others, so explore the options. Some vibrators come with a variety of sleeves for customizable sensations and experimentation. 

Designed for Couple's Play

Some bullet vibrators come with remote controls for teasing. Alternatively, smaller bullet vibrators can fit into C-rings or sleeves so that both partners feel the vibrations.

Dual Purpose

Some bullet vibrators can be inserted and used as a dildo for G-spot stimulation. They usually come with a curve near the top to tickle your G-spot. 

What To Look for in Bullet Vibrators

Since everyone experiences toys differently, trial and error can be expected. There are a few factors to consider when deciding on a vibrator. 

High-Quality Materials

High-quality material is vital. It should be easy to wash and non-porous to keep microbes from lingering. It should be made of materials that won't leach into your body. Your safest bets are medical-grade silicone, aluminum, chrome, or steel. 

Texture and Feel

Just because a material is safe for your body doesn't mean you'll like how it feels. For example, you may find silicone with lubricant feels better than a metal surface. Find a bullet vibrator that feels great against your skin — or better yet, one that comes with options such as detachable sleeves. 

Sound Levels

Bullet vibrators are known for being discreet. However, this discreetness could be ruined if the vibrations are loud enough to be heard in other rooms. It can also get you out of the mood. If this is a concern, read reviews to get a sense of how loud the vibrator is.

Water Sensitivity

If the shower or bath is your go-to spot to masturbate, look for a waterproof bullet vibrator. Pay attention to the exact wording on your toy's documentation, as some toys may be suitable for the shower but not full submersion. Never place a toy in or near water unless you're sure it's designed for that use. 

Number of Settings

If you like varied pressure and patterns, look for vibrators with various vibration settings or ways. However, just because a vibrator has 50 settings doesn't mean they're any good. Read reviews for a sense of how the vibrations feel. A few stellar vibration patterns that you'll turn to every time will always beat out dozens of mediocre designs. 

Intensity Levels

What may feel great for one person may be too intense for the next. If it's your first time picking up a bullet vibrator, you can get one that advertises as intense — make sure it has gentler settings as well. You may need to take some time to get used to higher intensity levels, and it's always good to have options. 

Charging Method

Bullet vibrators can be battery-operated or rechargeable. Either will get the job done, but you may find you prefer one over another. Rechargeable toys necessitate long cords and sitting out in the open, which can be inconvenient and indiscreet. But there's nothing worse than batteries running out and not having replacements when things are getting good. 

Cost

Determine your budget and spend less than that on your first purchase. We suggest having this wiggle room because finding the right toys can take time. Battery-operated toys tend to be less intense and more affordable.
