A Beginner’s Guide To Bullet Vibrators


There are a huge range of sex toys available these days, which is wonderful in terms of providing plenty of choice. You’re guaranteed to be able to find something that suits your tastes and your body, and there’s always something new and exciting to experiment with.

Perhaps you’re looking at getting a bullet vibrator for some all-over body stimulation? Here is our guide to bullet vibrators designed to help you get the most out of your discreet and powerful new toy.

What is a bullet vibrator?

These discreet, petite bullet vibrators are tiny but mighty! Their small size makes them ideal for travel, and their shape is perfect for direct, pinpoint clitoral stimulation – something that some women find they require in order to orgasm.

Bullets are great as simple first-time toys, and while they’re fantastic for solo play, they’re also wonderful to use to add a beautiful clitoral buzz during intercourse, since they’re unintimidating and little enough not to get in the way.

How to use a bullet vibrator?

The clitoris is not the only location a bullet vibrator can be used: try tracing small circles around the nipples, or holding it so it gently hums against the shaft of the penis, or perineum (the patch of skin between the testicles and anus).

It’s important to know that bullet vibrators are only really designed for external use – they’re not really designed for insertion. If you’re looking for sex toys that provide internal stimulation, try a classic vibrator or rabbit instead.

What types of bullet vibrator are there?

Several varieties are available. Some just have one constant speed, like the Durex Intense Delight Bullet vibrator, making them very simple to use.

Others bullet vibrators have several speeds and pulse modes or are curved to fit your contours. You can also choose between battery-powered models or the rechargeable ones.

What other kinds of vibrators are there?

There are several other types of vibrator you may want to consider if you’re not looking for the discreet simplicity of the bullet vibrator:

  • Classic vibrators
  • Personal massagers
  • Rabbit vibrators

Classic Vibrators

Traditionally shaped ‘classic’ vibrators work a lot like bullets, but because they’re larger and longer, you can also use them for internal stimulation as well as to hum against other erogenous zones.

Some people find the familiar, straightforward shape and size of classic vibes reassuring – there’s nothing too bewilderingly new-fangled about them.

Personal Massagers

Intimate Massagers are modern sex toys with fresh, ergonomic designs that make them maximally versatile. As well as offering clitoral stimulation, they can be used to give a relaxing, sensual massage all over the body for both partners that can act as a spine-tingly delicious aspect of foreplay, or simply an intimate way to wind down after a long day.

Because they’re not solely for sexual use, and specifically intended for relationships, they can provide a gentle, non-threatening way to introduce toys to a relationship for the first time.

Rabbit Vibrators

Finally, the rabbit sex toy is perhaps one of the most famous masturbators in the world. The rabbit has two key parts to it: a main shaft, which is usually inserted into the vagina and vibrates against the vaginal passage, and smaller protruding ‘ears’, which nestle against the clitoris. The intended result? Comprehensive stimulation of the genitals resulting in orgasm.

Ever wondered how to use a rabbit sex toy? Our helpful rabbit vibrator guide is filled with great advice on how to get the most out of your new best friend. With so many different vibrators available to buy, the choice is completely yours. They all have one thing in common though, they are designed to bring you and your lover maximum pleasure.
