Oh dear. With so many vibrators out there in the market, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the different types. Where do you start? How do you choose? If you have no idea what to pick or what to add to your vibrator collection, I just have two words for you: bullet vibrators.
If you’ve heard of the saying “the best things come in small packages,” they were talking about bullet vibrators. Just kidding, but it’s true. If you want something lightweight and jampacked with good vibrations, you’ll never go wrong with bullet vibrators. They’re one of the earliest vibrators. And they’re still popular thanks to their many features. Bullet vibrators are those tiny cute sex toys that you’ve probably heard about. They’re unintimidating, pocket-sized, and easily hidden. If you want something that spells discreet, this is discreet. They work both as a clitoral and a vaginal vibrator which means they can be used against the clit or they can be inserted vaginally for G-spot stimulation.
Bullet vibrators are available in different colors and sizes. But the most common thing about them is their shape – they all look like bullets (obviously!). It doesn’t matter if they’re longer or slimmer, or egg-like, they always retain their bullet shape.

Benefits of Using Bullet Vibrators
Why should you choose a bullet vibrator? Why would you want to bang yourself with this bad boy? Well, we have so many reasons.
1 Precise Stimulation
Because of their shape, they’re great for precise stimulation. You can focus vibrations exactly where you want them most. So, while many people will use bullet vibrators directly against their clitoral hood or clitoris, you can use it elsewhere, too. Don’t be afraid to explore.
2 Easier Orgasms
In case you’re living in a cave and you haven’t heard, only a small portion of women actually get off via penetration. In fact, only one in four women orgasm from penetration alone. How about the three other women, right? So to help with this problem, a sex toy can be the answer. And why would you want a sex toy that won’t give you what you need? With a bullet vibrator, you can focus on your clitoris and its amazing nerve endings. All four women are now happy.
3 Good for beginners
Bullet vibrators are a great choice both for beginners who are starting their sex toy collection. It’s something cute and simple to help with your orgasms. Bullet vibrators are easy to use. They usually come with a simple on/off button at the base of the vibrator. Some of the more high-tech ones come with dedicated remotes both wired or wireless, and they feature a selection of speeds and vibration patterns.
Bullet vibrators measure in at 3 inches, which makes them a great sex toy for travel. Some are even wearable so no one will know the dirty secret you’re hiding inside you. Haha. You can keep it in your purse, take it with you when you’re on vacation. It can go anywhere with you when you need an orgasm. If you’re going to have a sex toy, why not get one you can take with you everywhere you go?
5 It’s Discreet
A seven-inch vibrating pink dick may not be your idea of a first sex toy, and that’s okay. If you’re nervous about those gigantic toy cocks you see, then bullet vibrators are good for you. They’re very non-intimidating and cute. They don’t look like sex toys. They just look like small, innocent eggs/bullets.
The bullet vibrator is perfectly shaped to fit into a variety of sheaths, harnesses, silicone dildos, or just to put into a pair of panties. It has various functions. As mentioned, it works both as a vaginal and clitoral stimulation device. You can also try it out for anal play (exterior), on the labia, breast, or any other erogenous zone that needs attention. They’re perfect for solo or couple play.
7 Affordability and Durability
Bullet vibrators are usually powered by two AA batteries, and those are already enough to put out some pretty impressive vibrations. They’re relatively inexpensive, and they’re very easy to clean. They last for many years, which makes them a good investment to add to your collection.
8 It’s Easy To Use Alone Or With A Partner
Other sex toys can be hard to use during sex, but a bullet vibrator is pretty easy to accommodate anywhere you need it too. So you can use it alone, or you can use it on your partner (for a man, try it on the perineum). Or you can even use it on you while he’s fucking you hard and deep. Penetration and vibration? It’s an amazing combination, don’t you think?
How to use bullet vibrators
In case you have no idea how to use bullet vibrators, here are the different ways you can use them:
For Solo Play:
Find a place that’s private or where you feel comfortable. Relax, feel sexy, and keep the lube with you.
1. Using it on your clitoris:
If you like intense, direct clitoral stimulation, you can place the bullet vibrator vertically between the labia and over the clitoris. If you prefer less direct stimulation, cup the vibrating bullet in the palm of your hand. Then, move your hand over your labia and onto the labia. Hold the bullet vibrator firmly in place or move it in circles.
2. Slip it inside your panties:
If you feel daring, pop a bullet in your panties while you’re out. The smaller bullet vibrators are light and held in place by the fabric. You can now have an orgasm as you go.
For Partner Play:
1. Put the bullet vibrator between you and your partner during intercourse and lock it between your pelvis.
2. You can take turns giving each other a massage – just tuck the bullet in the palm of your hand and massage away.
Tips on using bullet vibrators
1 Use it on other parts of the genitalia.
Don’t just use it on your clit. You can also try tracing the tip all over your vulva to discover brand new sweet spots for you. Take some time experimenting with what feels good for you.
2 Use it on other body parts too.
There are so many other erogenous zones in your body. Your nipples, inner thighs, or perineum (the bit of flesh between your vagina and butt) are all hotspots of pleasure nerves that can make you feel good. Just a word of warning, though. Bullet vibes are shaped like bullets. They don’t have flared bases which means if you put them inside your butt, they can get lost inside. So they’re not safe for anal use. Make sure to keep your explorations external.
3 Don’t just use the tip of the vibrator.
The most obvious way of using a bullet vibe is to hold the tip of the toy against your sensitive spots, but there are other ways to use it. You can also attach it horizontally. That way, you can enjoy vibrations across a broader area. This is particularly great if your genitals are quite sensitive or if you prefer less intense stimulation.
4 Use tons of lube
Lubes are great. Lubes are amazing. There should be no shame in using lube. It makes everything feel better, it prevents soreness and injury, too. A good lubricant enhances any sexual experience, be it with a sex toy or with a partner. Don’t forget to use lube before using your bullet.
5 Vary the speed and pattern.
Lots of bullets come with a variety of speeds and functions, so you can personalize the experience to fit your needs and preferences. Some people like a gentle rumble from their toy, while others prefer more power and alternative vibration patterns.
6 Take it in the shower or bath.
You can also take them with you in the shower. There are tons of waterproof bullets out there which are perfect for bath or shower play. To make sure yours is safe to use in water, check the description on the packaging or research it online. It needs to say ‘submersible,’ not just ‘splashproof.’ Also remember: water doesn’t make an appropriate lube (Too thin! Always disappears!). So go for a long-lasting lube that’s safe to use with your sex toy. Use water-based lube, so it doesn’t react badly.
7 Involve a partner.
If you’ve never tried using sex toys in couple play before, bullet vibrators can be good for beginners as they’re just small and easy to use. Ask your partner to hold the toy lightly against your clitoris, and as then instruct them as they move it around and increase the speed. Better yet, incorporate penetration and vibration for more chances of winning an orgasm.
8 Go hands-free.
If you’ve mastered the other tips, you can not try going in public with a bullet in your underwear. You can generate as much pleasure as possible without actually touching the bullet with your hands. You can sit on a chair and grind against the bullet. It’s a great way to experiment with control, both with and without a partner.
