Bullet vibrators are the smallest and most discrete of all vibrator iterations in the sex toy world – but that doesn’t mean they’re any less powerful. Unlike rabbit vibrators, wand vibrators and some mains-powered clitoral vibrators, bullet vibes are small enough to be chucked in your weekend bag for a romantic (or solo) weekend break while still serving up intense clitoral stimulation during masturbation or partnered sex. Don’t let their unassuming appearance deceive you.
What is a bullet vibrator?
A bullet vibrator is a vibrator shaped like, well… a bullet. With thanks to the fact bullet vibrators are small, affordable, not-at-all intimidating and easy to use, they tend to be among the most popular sex toys stocked on lots of online sex toy shops like Lovehoney and LELO. They’re the perfect sex toy for beginners.
Bullet vibrators are designed for external stimulation of the clitoris or other pleasure points like the nipples or vulva, but they can be used in conjunction with a dildo or penis for double the pleasure.

What to look for in a bullet vibrator
When searching for the best bullet vibrator, there are a few things to consider. First up, opt for something with multiple vibration modes, so that you can work through the intensities and find what feels best for you. The We-Vibe Tango X Lipstick boasts seven vibration modes and eight intensity settings. You might also consider a bullet vibrator that is waterproof if you want to use it in the bath or shower. As for the shape, that all comes down to personal preference – but bullet vibrators with tapered or angled tips are particularly great for pin-pointed pleasure. The Mantric Rechargeable bullet vibrator has just that.
