Sex Review: Bullet Vibrator

I have a confession to make up front. I am not a fan of vibration. I think I'm the only woman I know who would me more then happy without a vibrator ever coming near my pussy, ever. However, I know that I am the extreme exception, and not the rule. Most women love vibration and prefer it to any other kind of sensation when masturbating. With that said, I've enjoyed playing with vibration with other partners and had good results.

Today I'm going to talk about bullet vibrators, specifically, I'm reviewing the Sharp Shooter Vibrating Bullet. One of my ex's, A, had been expressing interest in vibration, having seen an old, clunky, I take C batteries type vibrator in my drawer and trying it out. He liked it a lot, but I hated the old thing, and being me, I needed to get the best of something if I was going to do it at all. There are dozens of kinds of vibrators out there. They range in size, shape, speed, and price. There is everything from your basic 5 dollar bullet vibe, to the ones designed by the Berman Center that top out at 60 bucks. As always, you need to pick out what you think will best fit your specific needs. I did that with the sharp shooter, and will explain why shortly, but first, back to the sex....

I couldn't wait to get home and try my new bullet out. Like I said, it wasn't my thing, but I took off A's pants and went to work. I tried it under his balls... good reaction. I tried it at the base of his cock over his balls.... very good reaction. Finally I lubed it a little and slid it up his cock and rubbed the head with it in my hand. He love it. We also tried inserting it in my chuff while he fucked me. It didn't hurt, but it wasn't the most pleasant feeling for me, but again, A thought it was great. All in all, the experience was good for me, I liked how much A was getting off, and I used other means to get myself off in the process.

There a number of reasons that I chose this specific vibrator over the others in the store.

- It is medical grade silicone, it feels nice to the skin, it doesn't get slippery when wet or lubed up. It doesn't require any special clean up, it's non porous, and it doesn't degrade. These are all good things.

- It is water proof. This means it can be used in the shower, it can be inserted, (vaginally only people! Remember never put anything in your ass without a flared base.)and it can be lubed (only water based, not silicone based on silicone toys remember?) up without any trouble

- It has three speeds. It has three speeds you can change through with the touch of a button. The only vibration I can tolerate has to be pretty mild, and the lowest setting was perfect for me. A liked a more intense feeling, so he loved the highest setting. When picking out a vibrator, the buzz you feel in your hand is going to feel much more intense on your clit. The best way to gauge the strength of a vibrator is to hold it to the tip of your nose. If your nose goes numb, it's probably not for you. It seems weird, but it's the closest you can get without dropping trou in the store.

- I also chose a bullet because I intended to use it for partner play. A is queer, so something phallic shaped in the bedroom never freaked him out, but that's not the case with all men. I've been told that the bullet is less intimidating for men just starting out with sex toys, and that they are more willing to try that on themselves then a vibrating dildo.

- It's discreet. Me? I shout my sexuality from the rooftops, but I know that's not the case for most people. This is something that can ad a lot of sensation to your sex play, but is about the size of my thumb (and I've been told I have slightly freakishly small hands). It's easily transportable, small enough to go in a pocket or purse. It packs a pretty big punch for something so small.

- It was 10 bucks. 10 freaking dollars. As my dad would say, you can't beat that with a stick. For all these features it was easily the cheapest thing in my drawer o sex toys. I also think it was the best value. Even broke college students need sex toys.

The only negative I could really find with this vibe was The batteries ran out really quickly for us, but, they're not expensive. It takes 3 LR44 alkaline batteries. I got a ten pack at Passional for 10 dollars. I also had trouble getting the top back on after replacing the batteries, but A got it on without a problem and blamed my lack of hand-eye coordination.

One last parting word about vibrators before I sign out. Don't be scared to experiment a little. Porn always shows the girl spread eagle, lips spread, pushing a vibrator onto her clit, but there's more then one way to do it. Try everything to see what works best for you. Over underwear, from above or below, with legs closed or even crossed, try everything, you may find just the position to make it fantastic.

Overall, not my thing, but a good overall toy to have, and a good value, even with replacing the batteries on the regular. Don't limit it to solo play, and give it a try. I give it 4 stars.

So, that's all for tonight kiddies, as always, this is cleofaye saying, when in doubt, just ask, and when you're unsatisfied, give direction!
