Bullet Vibrators are the industry standard for small but powerful massagers that are typically used for targeted sensations. The Bullet is recommended as a great starting-out toy for a novice, but is widely used specifically because its size makes it an efficient yet versatile item. Bullets with an internal power source usually house a motor so small that they mostly require watch batteries, but could go up to one Triple A battery. Some bullets are attached to an external power source with a wire, and these can go up to AA batteries. The size of a typical bullet is under three inches, and they lack girth (a wider bullet would be considered an egg), which allows the bullet to apply vibration in a very effective and precise way, and therefore makes it a great external toy. Bullets can have a variety of speed and functions, or just one setting. Although usually it’s not recommended that you insert a bullet in the vagina or anus, particularly if there is no ring or string at the bottom, playing with it by stimulating the clitoris, vulva, labia, anal opening, nipples or any erogenous zone can be very enjoyable, whether alone or with a partner.
When choosing a bullet, consider under what circumstances you’ll be using it. If you’re experimenting with toys for the first time, pick something simple and easy to use. Consider if you’ll be using the bullet for water play, foreplay or to enhance intercourse. As stated earlier, because bullets are on the smaller side, they’re potentially the perfect beginner toy. The material for bullets tends to be plastic, but you can also find them in silicone, although that could mean investing in a more expensive toy.
