When I think of someone wanting to buy their first sex toy, I immediately want to recommend an excellent clitoral vibrator. This is because bullet vibrators can be incredibly versatile and provide many different types of stimulation. Not only are they versatile, but usually they can offer a ton of luxurious features for half the price. Some of the best bullet vibrators currently on the market are rechargeable, waterproof, and wireless. Not only that, but most women require clitoral stimulation to reach orgasm, and I know that my first squirting orgasm was achieved with a bullet vibrator.
Bullet vibrators are also the number one vibrators that people go for when they want to get off quickly. Clitoral vibrators are not just for clits, many individuals use them on their nipples, the head of a penis, as an attachment to a dildo or cock ring - the possibilities are endless. I know that when I want a quick release, I almost always reach for my We-Vibe Tango. While there are tons of bullets on the market, I dug through the overly buzzy, the battery guzzlers, and the plain duds, to bring you a list of the best bullet vibrators currently on the market.
The We-Vibe Tango has been top of the best bullet vibrator charts since it hit the market. And with good reasoning, too. It is the best. It is made with body safe ABS plastic, standing at only three and a half inches tall with a two and a half circumference. While it is not made to be inserted, it does have an insertable length of two and a half inches. You may be thinking that a tiny package cannot possibly harbor a powerful motor, but you would be wrong. The We-Vibe Tango, despite its size, has a motor that is sometimes too strong for me!
Along with four steady vibrations modes, ranging from “Oh my!” to “OH MY GOD!,” it also has five patterns. These patterns include:
You can cycle through these modes and patterns via the small, silicone button on the bottom of the device. If you pass the mode or pattern you were looking for, you will have to cycle back through all eight to get back around to the one you wanted. Although, if you have one pattern or mode you enjoy best out of all the rest, the We-Vibe Tango does have a memory feature and when you turn it back on after use, it will be on the last setting you used.
The We-Vibe is shaped like a lipstick to provide pinpoint or broad stimulation and to be more discreet. You can easily and discreetly explain away the bullet you are hiding in your purse without embarrassing yourself. It is also USB rechargeable and completely waterproof. Charging it for an hour and a half will provide you with two hours of play time on a medium setting. If you use a higher setting, you can expect it to die sooner.
My only issue with the We-Vibe Tango is that it comes with an attachment for a Micro-USB cord and a cord, rather than a device with the magnetic tip you need on it. I have lost this attachment more times than I care to admit and it is the most annoying bit about the Tango.
The We-Vibe Tango is the best of the best bullet vibrators on the market. It is powerful, waterproof, rechargeable, and has a memory feature. The memory feature and power is what sets the Tango apart from all of the other bullet vibrators currently on the market. Considering that I only have one issue with the Tango, it is no surprise that it is on the top of my list. If you are on the fence about getting a bullet, or do not know where to start, but know you want power - the We-Vibe Tango is the best place to start and the best orgasm for your dollar.
The Lelo Mia 2 only came in second because I have a long-standing relationship with my Tango and the power does not match that of my beloved Tango. However, the Mia is entirely rechargeable, is 100% waterproof, and is as whisper quiet as the prior bullet vibrator. Unlike the Tango, this bullet vibrator comes with an antibacterial storage bag and features eleven modes and patterns, six being steady vibration modes and five being patterns. It also comes in more colors than the Tango, which is nice. I do not like it when toys only come in pink, I want a little variety in my toy box!
The Lelo Mia 2 is made of ABS plastic, and the buttons are made of silicone. There is a twist on cap that covers the USB port which is used to charge the Mia. Be sure to keep water and other liquids out of the cap to prevent from messing up your device. When charging the Mia looks like a USB stick, and if someone finds it and asks about it, you can easily explain it away as a USB stick. Or just say that it is a lipstick, it does have a slight lipstick shape, without the pointed, sharp curve that the Tango has.
It is four and a half inches in length, and it is not meant to be inserted, but up to two inches can be inserted. It also has a circumference of two and three-quarters of an inch. I have noticed that when I use the Mia 2 the cap tends to rattle, while the bullet vibrator itself is incredibly quiet, the rattling cap can be annoying. You can hold the cap to keep it from rattling, but I do not like to have to focus on something else, like that, while trying to get off.
Unlike the Tango, the Lelo Mia 2 has two buttons and (as I said before) six steady vibration modes and five patterns. Once you turn on the Mia, by holding down the plus button, you can cycle through the steady vibrations using the plus and minus buttons. To access the patterns, hold the plus button down for two seconds and then you can cycle through those using the plus and minus buttons. If you wish to go back to the steady vibrations, hold down the plus button again. And finally, to turn it off, hold down the minus button.
The Lelo Mia 2 is more expensive than the Tango and does not come with all the bells and whistles, but it is almost as powerful and is much more discreet. While the Tango has a chance of being passed off as a lipstick, the Lelo Mia 2 is guaranteed to be passable as a USB Drive stick. The Mia stands out even more over the Tango in the fact that it provides the user with six steady vibration options whereas the Tango only has three. The Lelo Mia 2 is perfect for those who enjoy the build-up of slower vibrations to that mind-blowing orgasm at the highest setting.
The Desire Luxury Mini Vibrator is part of LoveHoney’s limited edition desire collection, marketed as beginner friendly due to its size. They advertise it as being bigger than your average bullet vibrator, but smaller than the traditional vibrator. If the size and color appeal to you, I recommend getting it soon, as it is limited. Speaking of the color, it is made with firm silicone that has a grippy feel to it when you run your hand down the length of it - I will talk about this later on. Anyway, the silicone has a metallic shimmer to it, some say it looks sparkly. No matter how you describe it, this bullet vibrator is gorgeous!
Onto the grippy-ness I mentioned, the silicone has a lot of drag to it which means it will require some lube during use, or it may unpleasantly pull against your skin. While this sounds like a downfall of the toy, I consider it a downfall and a positive attribute. The grippy-ness of the material helps the user hold on to the bullet vibrator while using it, instead of it being smooth and slipping out of your grip.
To help with insertion (if you choose to use it this way) the end is tapered and ends in a point. This helps to provide pinpoint or broad stimulation to your area of desire. While I found the vibrations to almost be too buzzy for me, I did enjoy that there are three steady vibration modes as well as seventeen patterns. I usually do not enjoy patterns, but the variety on this bullet had me drooling. The 20 different modes are cycled through via a single push button on the bottom, so I recommend going through them slowly, or you’ll wind up spending a minute trying to get back around to the mode you were looking for.
Although there is only one button, the Desire Luxury Mini Vibrator does feature a travel lock. To lock the bullet vibrator, all you have to do is quickly press the button twice, and then it is safe to travel with without worry! On top of that, it is waterproof and rechargeable. Like the Mia, you do have to twist the cap on and off to access the charging port. I did find that the cap could be a bit finicky. An hour and a half of charging the Desire Luxury Mini Bullet will get you just an hour of play time.
The Desire Luxury Mini Bullet is the only “bullet” on this list that is larger than your average bullet. Thanks to the added length, the options available when using this “bullet” becomes more varied. There is more to be inserted if you enjoy insertion, and a lot more surface area to work with. While it is not nearly as powerful as the two mentioned above, it is more than enough to get you there. On top of that, it is made with a grippy silicone and will not slip out of your hand as easily as the previous two.
The Mantric Rechargeable Bullet Vibrator is another lipstick shaped vibrator. It only comes in a dark pink, which is a bit of a turn off for me - as I have said before I like to have a variety of colors in my toy box and it irritates me when companies only produce toys in “feminine” colors. It is made of 100% body safe silicone and is completely waterproof. Near the base of the vibrator, there is a black design, that also doubles as the button - the only button to cycle through the 10 modes available on the Mantric.
The single button is used to turn the bullet vibrator on and off, cycle through the three steady vibrations and the seven patterns, and to access the travel lock feature. Around the button, there is an LED light that lets you know when the bullet is charging when it is done the charging, and there is a different light for each setting on the vibrator. A little over two hours of charging the device (150 minutes) will provide you with an hour and a half of play time. I do find this to be a bit extensive and do not think that the wait is worth the play it provides.
I have heard others say that the Mantric is too powerful for their likes, but compared to the Tango and the Mia 2, this bullet vibrator is small potatoes. While it may be powerful for some, it is whisper quiet for all. It cannot be heard if you have a blanket over your body and it definitely cannot be heard through a closed door. It is designed with a tapered end like the previous bullet vibrators to provide a combination of pinpoint and broad stimulation to your erogenous zones.
It measures in at three and a half inches in length with three of those being insertable, and it has a two and three quarters inch circumference. The vibrations are deep and rumbling, and they carry through the entire toy very well. While I did not find the vibrations to be as strong as I like, I did notice that after some time and build up, they were enough to get me off. The only thing that I did not like about the Mantric was that it has a pin style charger, which means you must puncture the silicone to charge the bullet vibrator.
The Mantric Rechargeable Bullet Vibrator may only come in one color, but it offers ten different modes of vibrations (three steady and seven patterns). It is whisper quiet and provides lighter vibrations for those who do not enjoy the power of the Tango or Mia. The best part of the Mantric is that it provides in-depth, rumbling vibrations. I have found that most affordable bullet vibrators only come with the buzzy vibrations that are comparable to a bee stinging your erogenous zones. If you are looking for variety and rumbling vibrations, the Mantric Rechargeable Bullet Vibrator is a perfect choice!
The Lovehoney Seduce Me 10 Function Vibrating Garter is part of the Seduce Me Line available on Lovehoney. It is the only bullet vibrator on this list that is also a panty vibrator. It comes with a thong that is available in four different sizes and has removable garter straps.
On top of that, the bullet itself is controlled by a remote. While both the remote and the bullet requires batteries, thankfully, they are included with the package. They are both made of ABS plastic, and neither one is waterproof.
This vibrating bullet features six speeds and ten patterns, making for a whopping combination of sixty different options. You use the plus button to turn the device on and off and to increase the speed of the vibrations. I had a little trouble figuring out how to turn it all on at first. You have to turn on the bullet using the only button on it, then turn on the remote using the plus button. The minus button is used to decrease the speed and turn the device off. The third button looks like the at symbol (@) and is used to cycle through the patterns. The remote has a range of three to five meters, making it perfect for across the room play.
If you do choose to insert the vibrating bullet, rather than place it in the pocket in the thong, you may experience more interference with the remote and may not be able to get as far away from it as you would like. This is the case with any remote controlled toy. You may also find that sitting on the bullet wrong on a hard surface, may cause it to be louder than expected and alert those around you to the sounds coming from your panties.
The batteries only last about thirty to forty-five minutes and, of course, they’re watch batteries, which you may find difficult to replace. I recommend checking the website you bought the device from or buying them on Amazon. On the plus side, the thong is well made and can be used with any bullet vibrator or on their own. They are sexy and can provide a sexual element to any day! They are also comfortable, and the removable garters are perfect for wearing those thigh highs that are always slipping down your legs.
The Lovehoney Seduce Me 10 Function Vibrating Garter is the only bullet on this list that comes with a pair of panties and a remote. This bullet is marketed as a remote control panty but is just as perfect on its own. You can use the panties with or without the bullet, just as you can use the bullet with or without the panties. The remote adds an extra layer of excitement when you can hand it to your partner and let them watch you go at it solo. I believe that The Lovehoney Seduce Me 10 Function Vibrating Garter is the best bullet on this list for partnered play.
Bullet vibrators primary use is for external pleasure. They are used on the clitoris, nipples, and other erogenous zones to elicit a sexual response. They are fantastic for foreplay and can often be used as an extra element during traditional penis in vagina sex. Personally, I find that my bullets are great for quick orgasms and to add to anal play. But everyone uses their bullets differently, and their versatility is what makes them a must have for any toy box or a great starter toy for those looking for something with a lot of options for a little cash.
While there are many ways to use a bullet vibrator, the most common has to be for solo masturbation. The best bullet vibrators feature a tapered tip for a variety of options while using them. While most people get the most out of bullet vibrators by allowing the lipstick style tip to brush against their clit gently, I found that I have my most powerful orgasms by pressing the broader side between my labia as hard as I can. I find bullet vibrators pair best with a dildo that is suction cupped to the wall, but for quickies, I use them by them self.
Using any toy with a partner can be tricky. I have found that doggy style or missionary work best for my partner and myself, but it may take some figuring out and a lot of position changes to find the best position for you. I love having my partner push against the bullet and press it into my pubic bone with his pubic bone, this creates an intense sensation and carries the vibrations through both of our bodies. If your partner finds this uncomfortable, I recommend having them sit up in missionary style and hold the bullet against your clit for you.
To get the most of your bullet vibrator, I recommend always using fresh batteries or keeping it charged. I also recommend using a water or silicone based lubricant to help it to glide across your labia and clit without any snags. Finally, I recommend knowing what you need from a bullet vibrator. Do you prefer the single speed vibrators so that you do not have to mess with all the settings? Would you like to start off low and work your way up to the highest setting out of ten? Do you prefer buzzy or rumbling vibrations? Do you even know the difference? Asking yourself these questions will help you find the best bullet vibrator for you!
Tons of sex toys come with a hole in them - the Dual Core Silicone Siren Dildo is a great example. These toys are designed to house a bullet vibrator. Apply a small dollop of silicone lubricant to your bullet and slip it into the hole to turn nearly any toy into a vibrating toy. If you plan on using the dildo or butt plug in the tub or shower, just make sure the bullet is waterproof. There are tons of non-vibrating toys that provide you with the option to upgrade them by merely using a bullet. Just be sure to use lube when inserting the bullet into the toy so that you will be able to get it back out later. Trust me, a stuck bullet is no fun.
While I feel that I did a great job listing the best bullet vibrators, you may want to venture out and find your own “perfect” bullet. Just be wary of the materials. I do not recommend anything that is not made with silicone or ABS plastic as most other materials are porous and can cause infections or chemical burns. I do suggest finding something that is waterproof and not wired. While wired bullets do have the appeal of a ton of buttons, you are restricted on how far you can move your hand from your toy, and that takes away from the fun.
You will also want to avoid buying from stores that are not trusted or are huge like Amazon and eBay. Websites like those are known to have sellers who cheaply duplicate loved toys and do not truthfully disclose the materials made to create them. I have found that reading in-depth reviews is the best way to find the bullet vibrator best for my likes and needs. Just be aware of the size, vibration speeds, and types if you are buying online. If you are uncomfortable buying online or do not know what you are looking for, visit a local sex toy store to test out some of their toys.
While it is obvious that I appreciate a rumbling, waterproof, rechargeable bullet, there are a ton of features that I look for when I am adding a new bullet to my stash. I want a bullet that is not wired and is simple to operate but also has a good bit of options to choose from. I like to build up from the lowest setting to the highest while resting on the edge of an orgasm and letting go when I reach that highest setting. If a bullet has patterns, I like it to have memory features, as, like most humans, I am a creature of habit.
I also find myself looking for small bullets that pack a big motor, like the Tango. I lusted for the Tango for a long time, and once I got my hands on it, most of the bullets I already owned, lost their appeal. After using bullets for as long as I have, I have discovered that the cheaper, weaker ones no longer hit the mark for me. I have heard that this a common problem among bullet vibrator users once they get used to the steady thrum of pleasure that one can only get from a good bullet vibrator. Be careful when heading down this road, the best bullet vibrators can create a life long addiction.
