Which Bullet Vibrator Is Right For You?

Bullet style vibrators are the most popular first toy. They’re small, discrete, and they get the job done. But, which one should you get? Here are three great starter vibes, each with their own pros.

What’s a bullet vibrator?

A bullet vibrator is a simple vibe roughly the size and shape of a finger (or a big bullet, hence the name.) Back in the day, they were often made of a highly reflective metal, and were called silver bullets. They tend to be fairly affordable and have powerful motors for their size, too. These days, bullets come in different sizes and with different functions. But, they can all trace their lineage back to that basic shape I like to refer to as the ur-bullet.

The Starter: Screaming O Vooom!

The Vooom! is the most basic out of the trio. It’s a battery operated, body safe plastic bullet with one speed. Click the little button on one end, and a motor on the other does its thing. The motor has a surprisingly satisfying rumble to it. No irritatingly buzzy vibes here. The entire toy is a straight 2.5 inches long, and the vibrating end has a domed shape for comfort. The Vooom! shines as an external vibrator, but is a little short for any sort of internal fun. It is waterproof, though. So, bring that little dynamo into the shower or bath all you like.

Concerned about using plastic on your body? The Vooom! Is made from ABS material that is independently tested by a US laboratory. Instead of a shiny silver, the Vooom! Is available in four fresh colors: Tangerine (featured above), Grape, Strawberry, and Kiwi-Mint.

Leveling Up: NS Novelties Luxe Collection Compact Vibe

Looking for something more than a little one-speeder? The Luxe Collection Compact Vibes by NS Novelties are all about variety. These rechargeable, water proof, 4 inch toys each offer seven functions. You’ll get three speeds of a steady vibration and four pulse patterns to experiment with. And let me tell you, the highest steady vibration is POWERFUL! (You can see me test one here.)

Not only do you get more functions to play with, but you also get more shapes. Here at The Spot, we carry the Electra, the Princess, and the Scarlet (featured above.) The Electra and the Princess are both shaped kind of like a bullet vibrator and a football morphed together. The business end tapers down to a rounded point, and the middle of the shaft bulges out just a little. The tapered point is great if you like targeted, precise vibrations. The difference between these two models is the texture. All of the Compact Vibes are made from a velvety-soft silicone. The Electra has a smooth, silky surface. The Princess is covered in delicate, raised diamond outlines. This texture increases sensation when it’s used for shallow penetration.*

Prefer a broader area of vibration? The Scarlet is shaped the opposite way from the Electra and Princess. A domed tip tapers down to a slim shaft. This style of tip spreads out the vibes a bit, but don’t worry about losing sensation. All of the Compact Vibes have zero flexibility. The silicone provides a bit of cushioning, but their shafts are completely rigid. That means you get very firm pressure, which translates to intense vibrations!

The All-In-One: FemmeFunn Ultra Bullet Massager

FemmeFunn named this one right. It’s rechargeable, silicone, water proof, flexible, powerful, and serves up a whopping 20 vibration functions! It’s roughly the same length and shape as the Scarlet, but where it really shines is as a transitional toy. The Ultra will easily take you from external to internal sensations. The motor is in the tip of the bullet, which means that you get direct stimulation right where you want it. That motor sits above a flexible shaft. So, when you’re ready to try some insertion fun, it’s going to accommodate your anatomy. The motor in the tip is great here, too. The vibrations don’t have to travel down the shaft. You’ll feel them at full intensity no matter how shallowly you use the bullet.

And did I mention the 20 functions? Ya. That’s a lot of patterns to experiment with!

*Please note that none of these toys are safe for anal play. If you’re looking for a back door vibe, you’ll want one with a flared base. We suggest the Nalone Prop. Stop by The Spot to learn more.
