Vibrators are a go-to these days for instant pleasure and relief, often giving a more fulfilling pleasure experience than your regular run of the mill dildo. Adult toys for ladies are simple, but the devil lies in the details: while having something vibrates is a simple concept, the feel and shape of the toy can make a world of difference. It’s almost a market of vibrator ergonomics, with everyone trying to find the best solution to meeting a lady’s needs by experimenting with shapes, vibration patterns, and even smart phone apps. It can be a jungle out there, and that’s why we’ve listed our top five vibrators.
An extra note is that all of these devices come in discreet packaging that won’t leave you embarrassed at the door. When using sex toys always ensure you’re using a generous amount of lubrication for the best possible experience: think about what going down a plastic slide can do to your legs. Sex toys should always be cleaned thoroughly after use to avoid any nasty infections. Lastly but not least, as we’re discussing smaller toys here, make sure you always have a grip on the toy during use.
Tracey Cox Supersex Bullet Vibrator
The Tracey Cox Supersex Bullet Vibrator is an incredibly discreet and compact little device. Small enough to rest in the palm of your hand with room to spare, they tout it as an addition to your handbag, although that might be a step too far for us. We can’t recommend sex toys in your everyday carry, that said, it’s a very unassuming device and it’s doubtful people would be able to tell it’s an adult toy. The sleek plastic finish comes in an array of cute colors including black, pink, and silver, so you can pick one that matches your style best.
It’s highly versatile being completely waterproof, making it suitable for fun in bed or in the shower. For such a small device it has a surprisingly powerful motor delivering wave after wave of intense pleasure. The smaller size ensures ladies will always be comfortable with this toy, there won’t be discomfort from excessive girth or length. It’s an excellent choice for people looking at their first sex toy, or looking for something to use as an adventurous couple. However, be aware that the smaller size makes it unsuitable for anal play: for that, you should use a longer device with a flared base to avoid an uncomfortable trip to the emergency room.
Lovehoney Dream Bullet 10 Function Vibrator
Another smaller bullet vibrator on our list is the Lovehoney Dream Bullet, coming softer plastic shell that almost feels slightly rubbery. Stylish and small, the Dream Bullet is anything but lacking with a decent punch and a variety of vibration settings to go with it. It comes in either a fashionable purple or hot pink, and is small enough to sit on your palm with ease. At just 3.3” long and running on a single battery, it provides a more than adequate set of vibrations, even if it isn’t the punchiest we’ve ever seen, that’s to be expected at the relatively low price tag.
It has three speeds, and a further seven patterns; some of the patterns feel quite gimmicky, and they seem like a feature added after the fact to try and make this toy sound more premium than needed for the price range. As a bare bones toy, this is perfectly adequate, but the needless vibration profiles just make it longer to cycle through the speeds without adding anything notable to the experience. The narrower nub at the tip of the toy makes it easier to apply targeted pleasure if teasing is your game. It’s completely waterproof and ideal for the shower, but the weaker motor might not do so well in the bath.
We-Vibe Tango Lipstick Bullet Vibrator
Coming in at the premium end of the scale is the We-Vibe Tango Lipstick Bullet vibrator; We-Vibe make excellent high end adult toys with intuitive designs and reliable build quality. The Tango Lipstick, as you may well have guessed, looks like a lipstick. It’s different from the usual bullet shape these vibrators are often named after, making it relatively unique in this aspect. The hot pink is a much loved color amongst vibrators, with a white cover hiding the USB slot for recharging. While it touts being waterproof, we really wouldn’t like to test that thoroughly given the price tag; we can however confirm it’s water resistant at the very least.
A flatter slanted head makes it convenient to apply pressure to a larger area. Most bullets usually end in a blunted point, which leads to people using the side of the vibrator for better contact area. The slant ends in a far more rounded point that still lets you hit those intense pleasure spots with precision, but also lets you use the wider top face to work a much greater area. The bigger area also means you can add manual movements without losing contact with those vital spots, ensuring you get the thrill you bargained for.
Colt Turbo Power Bullet Vibrator
Ok so this isn’t really a bullet, it’s more like an egg. The Colt Turbo Power Bullet is in two pieces connected by a cable: the larger piece is the remote, while the small stretched egg is the vibrating segment. You put the egg where you want vibrations, and control it with the attached remote; a big plus here is that as the device is attached by a cable, it’s far harder to lose than a regular bullet. You aren’t quite so constrained by having to hold a smaller device, and subsequently the device can go deeper than bullets to provide more than just clitoral stimulation.
As the battery is in a separate controller, the battery life is surprisingly good. The motor benefits too, because not only can it use more power but it’s not competing for space in the device with the battery. As a result, you get a surprisingly fulfilling experience that hit pleasure spots in every nook and cranny, rather than the superficial ones alone. While bullets don’t make the most ideal toys for it anyway, this device does outright state it should not be used for anal play. If you’re after a strong motor, a reasonably hands free experience, and a small discreet device that isn’t limited by its 3.25” insertable length, the Colt Turbo Power Bullet Vibrator is perfect for you.
Fifty Shades Freed Crazy For You Bullet
Another ‘not bullet’, the Fifty Shades Freed Crazy For You keeps the compact form factor of a bullet, but with a unit twist to the shape. Similarly to the We-Vibe Tango Lipstick, the head isn’t the traditional bullet shaped point, rather it’s a slanted heart shape. Inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey, this palm sized device comes in a royal purple with rose gold highlights at the base. It’s fully rechargeable via a USB port under the screw on cap boasting up to 90 minutes of use. It’s so stylish it even comes with a suave silky pouch to carry it around in, or more likely to keep it in while it’s in the drawer.
The silicon is extremely soft, with a rubberized texture rather than hard plastic, but does so without being unnecessarily abrasive. If you truly do need to take this out with you on the go, it thankfully comes with a travel lock to prevent any uncomfortable buzzing from your handbag. The motor is reasonably powerful, making a suitable tradeoff in power for better battery life. You have the choice of ten modes, three speeds and seven patterns. The patterns are never anything incredible, and certainly nothing you couldn’t manage yourself, they’re usually there to make a product look more feature rich than it is. While the shape makes it somewhat of an oddity, it’s neither a point that makes or breaks it.
How To Use a Bullet Vibrator
So in conclusion, you get a few bells and whistles with more premium products like the We-Vibe Tango Lipstick and the Fifty Shades Freed Crazy For You, such as rechargeable batteries, a better finished product, and better battery life. Unfortunately, they come at a steep mark-up that can make them a significantly less attractive answer to your pleasure needs than some of the cheaper products such as LoveHoney’s own brand. The finish on the product usually isn’t far between, with the premium products having what feels like that extra mark of quality assurance. In most cases, the cheaper options will provide a comparable experience, with the caveat that the toy might not last as long.
When it comes down to brass tax, you simply have to make the choice between going for the cheaper option that might not last, or treating yourself with a premium adult toy that’s going to go the distance. Generally speaking, it’s rare that any adult toy website will sell sex toys that are so poorly made they could cause harm; at worst, you’re likely to get a poorly made cap, or less premium materials. If however, you’re looking for anal play, you may want to consider a different toy, as the size simply isn’t practical with some toys like the Colt warning you outright not to use them for that purpose.
