The Bullet Vibrator Guide & How To Use Them

November 09, 2020

Bullet vibrators are small, strong sex toys roughly the size of a lipstick used for external (clitoral) orgasms, but is also used to stimulate erogenous zones like nipples or testicles during foreplay and intercourse. 

The size of a bullet makes it an ideal couples toy as well as an excellent purchase for a first or beginners “vibrator”. It’s easy to pack away and doesn’t resemble anything too phallic in nature if you do leave it lying around. The unimposing size makes it easy to mix into both foreplay and intercourse.

Don’t let the size fool you though, bullets pack a serious punch and lead to some of the fastest most aggressive orgasms of any sex toy. 


Why Bullet Vibrators?

In short, every person with a clitoris needs to own a bullet vibrator, but it’s not limited to women as you’ll see in this guide. It is, however, a well-known fact that most women require clitoral stimulation to reach orgasm.

Bullets are extremely popular for this reason because these little wonders are designed precisely for that purpose. Because they are so small and uncomplicated, they provide pinpoint vibrations precisely where you need them most to ensure intense, hassle-free orgasms.

These small vibrators are inconspicuous and thus as discreet as they come (pardon the pun), which means they’re easily hidden out of sight and make the ideal travel companion. 

TIP - Always remove the batteries or activate the travel lock when you’re travelling. The last thing you want is a missed flight by causing a bomb scare, or the general embarrassment of a vibrating handbag or suitcase.


An added advantage is that because they’re so tiny, any male partner is much less likely to be intimidated than when you whip out your 20cm rabbit vibrator. If you haven’t incorporated a vibrator into your sex life yet (which you should), this is a great place to start.
 


What To Look For In A Bullet Vibrator

Material
– Silicone is always better as it’s super soft, non-porous, and easy to clean. Still, unlike other vibrators, a plastic or metal bullet will probably work just as well. You can read more about sex toy material and safety in our guide - The Most Comprehensive Guide to Sex Toys Online

Shape – Some bullet vibrators are even shaped like lipstick so that they won’t raise any suspicion on your bedside table or in case you accidentally spill your purse. However, most Bullets are roughly the same shape, but if you enjoy G-spot vibrations, you should opt for one with a little curved shaft at the end. If you’re only looking for clitoral vibrations, you can’t really go wrong here, but little bunny ears are a bit of a game-changer and add some practical functionality to the bullet. 

Waterproof – Always pick a waterproof toy when possible. Water-resistant or splashproof is NOT waterproof but will still get the job done, just keep in mind that you can’t use them in the bath or shower. With a waterproof toy, you also don’t have to be shy when applying lube, which is always advisable. If your bullet is waterproof, you can keep it in your toiletry bag when travelling and not worry if it gets wet in the bag. It’s a safe place to keep a toy if you don’t want anyone to find it as well. 

Settings – Most bullet vibrators nowadays have variable speed and pattern settings, but many only have a single one. A single setting bullet will get a bit monotonous after a couple of uses so always try to pick one with variations to keep things interesting. It’s not a deal-breaker by any stretch, but a bit of variety goes a long way. Physiologically you might feel very different on different occasions, including your levels of arousal, and you want to be able to adjust accordingly.

Batteries – Battery operated bullets may be slightly cheaper, but a rechargeable bullet is well worth paying a little bit extra for. They tend to last longer and deliver deeper, more intense vibrations because the battery is moulded into the toy. Just be sure to keep it charged, it sucks to run out of power mid-orgasm.

Price – Bullet vibrators are some of the more affordable adult toys available, but as with everything in life, you get what you pay for. Some bullets are completely overpriced but look for something mid-range in pricing; you will struggle to go wrong. Any company selling these toys online should be worth their salt and only sell the tried and tested toys, like Lizzy Bliss. But not all toy stores are created equally, so do your research. 

Noise – Battery operated bullets tend to be a bit noisier than rechargeable bullets because of the screw top casing. Silicone toys, on the other hand, will usually be quieter than plastic or metal ones as they are a sealed unit.


How To Use A Bullet Vibrator

For Her

Clitoral Stimulation - Give your fingers a break. The most functional and “conventional” way to use a bullet vibrator is to position the end of the vibrating bullet directly against the clitoris or clitoral hood, depending mainly on how sensitive your (or their) anatomy is. Move it around to find the most stimulating spot, which is often not just the tip.

The clitoris is much larger anatomy than one might think, and the entire clitoris is there for sensory overload. Often the side of the clitoris moving parallel in position with the length of the bullet vibrator results in the quickest orgasms because you stimulate more of the clitoris this way. You can learn more about the female orgasm and the anatomy of the clitoris from The Inner Workings Of The Female Orgasm

Breasts and Nipples - Always remember that Oxytocin is our friend and the breasts and nipples are one of the easiest sources for this.  When a woman’s breasts, specifically nipples, are stimulated, the hormone oxytocin is released into her system. The release of oxytocin a.k.a the “cuddle hormone” or “love hormone” into a woman’s system helps create a sense of bonding and connection with her partner.  Oxytocin is released in droves when a woman orgasms. 

Use a bullet vibrator on a low speed and gently rub it over the nipple to get that stimulation going. If you’re with a partner, start from the outer regions of the breast and move towards the nipples. There’s no need to rush this; foreplay leads to better sex, trust me!

Top Tips:

  • Use Lube. The clitoris does not self-lubricate, and a dry bullet over this area does not feel good. A bit of lube will allow you to glide the bullet into any position with no second thoughts about it. 
  • Communicate with your partner about positioning and speed! Partners pay attention to said position and speed and look for the cues that make her go Oh! It’s like knowing which ice cream flavour your partner prefers; it should be basic knowledge. 

For Him

Yes, bullet vibrators can be enjoyable for men as well. It might not have the same lighting-quick orgasm effect as in women, but it can be seriously pleasurable if used correctly. 

External Prostate or Perineum Massage - Please remember that a bullet is not meant for anal insertion and is not a classified anal toy. Anal toys have flanges at the base of the toy because they could literally be sucked in; nobody wants that. That being said, a strong bullet on a low-frequency vibration can stimulate a man’s prostate from the outside.

Press the top of the vibrator on the skin between his balls and anus on the highest speed. The powerful rumbling vibrations penetrate deep enough to stimulate the prostate. This can be extremely pleasurable to some men during a blowjob as well if that’s your thing.  

Frenulum Stimulation - The Frenulum is the small tag of skin on the underside of a penis, between the foreskin (if there is one) and the shaft of a penis. It looks like a small “V” just below the head on the underside of his penis. It’s sometimes referred to as the banjo string which should help you visualise it better.

Press the vibrating bullet against the frenulum of the penis and move it up and down in small motions, circular motions work equally well.

Testicular Stimulation - Remember this is a sensitive area, so be gentle. But testicle stimulation is excellent when combined with a handjob or blowjob.

Take the bullet vibrator and cup it in your hand while it vibrates on a low speed, and then gently cup his testicles with it while giving him a handjob or blowjob. This is a proven method for super quick ejaculation.
