Dynamite comes in small packages. If there ever was an overused cliché, in the history of cliché’s, this phrase would probably win first prize. Yet, when it comes to sex toys – more specifically bullet vibrators – there has never been a more apt description!
Bullet vibrators, which come in a range of shapes and sizes, are little sex toys that are typically shaped like, well, bullets. Even if you can’t picture one right now, chances are that you’ve seen at least one of these beauties at some point, since this is the type of naughty toy that most individuals with vulvas have.
Why, may you ask? Well, for starters, they’re not at all intimidating, they’re pocket-sized, and they’re easily concealed if you’re not in the business of screaming about your sex toy collection.
Since most women need some serious clitoral stimulation to get off, this compact little pocket pleaser is designed to stimulate erogenous zones like the clitoris during partnered play or masturbation.
A general crowd-pleaser, the bullet vibrator comes in a variety of shapes and sizes and serves a variety of pleasurable objectives. And while a bullet vibe may be the go-to toy for millions of people with a clitoris, it’s also a super versatile toy that isn’t reserved for this purpose alone – you can stimulate other pleasure points as well!
Bullets are great for pinpointing clitoral, anal, nipple, or perineum stimulation or can accompany a penis ring and/or dildo for dual stimulation … another reason why it’s such a nightstand staple.
Finding your bullet vibe
Although the bulk of bullet vibrators resemble bullets, these toys come in a range of materials, shapes, and power sources. Stainless steel, chrome, and silicone are some of the most commonly used materials. Other products may also offer many unique features.
Some include attachments, such as smooth or noduled silicone sleeves, while some are curved at the top for G-spot stimulation. They can be waterproof, rechargeable, remote-controlled, or battery-powered.
When buying your first bullet vibrator, consider which feature (material, price, intensity) is most important to you, and then select accordingly. If you’re new to vibrators, buy one with varying speeds so you can figure out which one works best for you. Also, try to stay within your budget so you can try again without breaking the bank if your first chick stick doesn’t get the job done.
Pulling your trigger
Bullet vibrators may be tiny in comparison to conventional wands or rabbit vibrators, but they are not to be underestimated. Because of their size and shape, they’re perfect for directing vibrations precisely where you want them.
Here are some bulletproof tips and ideas when it comes to using your magic bullet…
The most practical and conventional approach to using a bullet vibrator is to place the end of the vibrating bullet right on the clitoris or clitoral hood, depending on how sensitive your (or their) body is. Move it about to locate the most pleasurable spot, which is often not just the tip.
What many people don’t know or realize is that the clitoris is much larger than you’d assume – there is, in fact, an ENTIRE clitoris available for sensory overload. While most individuals will masturbate with a bullet vibrator by holding the tip of the toy against their sensitive spots, there are many ways to wield a bullet vibrator!
Instead, try holding it horizontally (preferably parallel to the clitoris) so that you can enjoy the vibrations across a broader area. Since more of the clitoris is stimulated, you’ll achieve lightning-fast orgasms.
Harden those nipples
Ever wondered why getting your nipples sucked or nibbled on feels so good? Well, besides the obvious stimulation of nerve endings, nipple play promotes the release of Oxytocin. When the breasts (especially the nipples) are stimulated, this hormone, also known as the “love hormone” or “cuddle hormone,” fills the body, boosting bonding and connection with your partner (this hormone, by the way, is released in the bucket loads when we orgasm!)
To get your buzz on, use a bullet vibrator at a low speed and gently massage it over the outer areas of the breast, gradually working your way towards the nipples. Remember, there’s no need to rush, foreplay is paramount if you’re planning to spritz your sheets.
Although it may seem like a no-brainer, bullet vibrators are not always intended for anal penetration. Anal toys often feature flanges at the base to prevent them from being sucked in. Having said that, a strong bullet on a low-frequency vibration can arouse a prostate from the outside.
Press the top of the vibrator on the bit of flesh between the balls and anus at maximum speed. When coupled with oral stimulation, these powerful rumbling vibrations may reach deep enough to stimulate the prostate to produce a sensation that’s sure to blow their minds.
Bust a nut
Before touching anyone’s balls – it’s important to note that this is a super-sensitive area – so proceed with caution. Yet, when coupled with a blowjob, testicle stimulation can feel fantastic. At a low speed, hold the bullet in one hand and gently cup the testicles. Combine this with a blowjob or hand-job and, boom – you’ll give him a knee-buckling ballgasm that’ll leave him coming back for more.
Love your lube
Despite the current day and age, there’s still a bizarre stigma surrounding lube – that is, the notion that there’s something wrong with you if you need to use it and that during sex, you should be naturally “wet enough”. FYI – this is absolute nonsense!
Everything from your hormones to the amount of time you have to become aroused may influence how wet you get. There should be no shame in using lubricant; not only does it make things feel better but also prevents pain and injury. A quality lubricant can enhance any sexual encounter, whether with a partner or using a bullet (or any other adult toy for that matter!)
If you’ve never used sex toys with a partner before, doing so for the first time may seem a bit awkward and weird. However, since bullet vibrators are so compact, they are a perfect starter sex toy. Another advantage is that, since they’re so compact, a male partner won’t feel as intimidated being confronted with a bullet as opposed to facing a 20cm rabbit vibrator! To boost your chances of orgasm, place the bullet against your clitoris during penetrative sex.
Convinced yet? Bullet vibes are a must-have in any collection, whether you’re a vibrator novice or a sex-toy aficionado.
