How to Use a Bullet Vibrator – 7 Ideas to Make it Your New Best Friend

When you work in the sex toy field, it’s easy to get caught up in a cloud of high-tech, all-singing, all-dancing sex toys with a thousand functions and almost as many vibrating arms.

But, in all honesty, I’m a simple girl at heart – with my trusty bullet vibrator, I can conquer the world. Of all of the weird and wonderful sensations other toys can provide, I always find myself coming back to the simple dependability and precision of a good bullet vibe.

And they’re so versatile! In the right hands, a bullet can go from gentle caressing the nipples to massaging the perineum to delivering an earth-shattering orgasm straight to the clitoris – and you have the right hands.

I’m determined to show the world the wonders of bullet vibrators, and enlighten you to how to use a bullet vibrator in a whole load of ways that you may never have considered before.

No matter if your bullet vibe is already your go-to bedroom companion, or if you’ve so far overlooked this understated sex toy, you might just find out how to use a bullet vibrator in a completely new (and very pleasurable) way!

Turn it up

…or down. What I really mean is, why not invest in a bullet vibrator that has more than one speed setting?

Bullet vibrators are notoriously inexpensive, but we can often be seduced by those insanely cheap vibrators that only have one level of vibration intensity. It seems like such a steal, and who needs more than one speed anyway, right?

Well, the truth is that you might. If you find that getting to climax takes a really long time with your single-speed bullet, it may be because it’s simply not strong enough for you. Likewise, if you often feel overwhelmed by its intensity, then you may well benefit from some lower speed settings.

A multi-function bullet won’t set you back a fortune, and it can open up lots of possibilities of how to use a bullet vibrator. You can start at the lowest setting and move up the levels as you build the sensations, or stick to a less intense mode while you stimulate your other sweet spots (this can be a great option if you’re using a bullet vibe during sex).

Switch Up Your Grip

One super easy upgrade to how to use a bullet vibrator is by using more than just the tip of your vibe.

If you’re familiar with using a bullet vibrator, it’s pretty likely that you’re using the tip of it almost exclusively. I get it, it’s the most precise and intense part of the vibe – perfect for getting you to the Big O with no fuss or nonsense.

But there’s a whole world of blissful build-up that you’re missing out on!

Holding your bullet vibrator more horizontally, so that the length of the vibrator is making contact with your body, provides stimulation over a wider surface area. This will diffuse some of the power of the vibrations and create a gentler, more teasing feeling.

This approach to how to use a bullet vibrator is ideal for those who have sensitive genitals or get easily overwhelmed by powerful vibrations, but also allows you to spend longer building up the sensations and getting super turned-on!

You could also achieve this by using a bullet vibe with a flatter tip, like the We-Vibe Tango X or the Mantric Rechargeable Bullet Vibrator (below).

Lube, Lube and More Lube

It’s high time that we smashed the myth that you shouldn’t need lube is you’re really aroused. How wet things get down there depends on a whole host of reasons, including hormones, stress and how much time we have to get in the mood.

Whether you want a quickie or it’s just not the right time for the full waterworks, lube is an essential bedroom accessory for anyone who wants to have great feeling self-pleasure sessions every time.

Using lube will make every vibration emanating from your bullet vibe feel so much more intense and pleasurable – it’s one of the easiest instant masturbation upgrades out there!

Plus, lube makes everything safer and more comfortable, too. Using any kind of vibrating sex toy without lube is a recipe for friction, which can get very uncomfortable and can irritate the sensitive skin around the genitals, which is really the opposite of sexy.

If your bullet vibrator is made of silicone, it’s important that you only use water-based lubricants when you use it, or you’ll damage the material and make it vulnerable to bacteria and other nasty stuff.

Explore Your Body

An important thing to remember as you explore how to use a bullet vibrator is that it’s not just a clit stimulator. Defy tradition and take your trusty bullet friend on a tour of all of your (and your partner’s) erogenous zones!

The small size and streamlined shape of a bullet vibrator makes them perfect for teasing and caressing all kinds of body parts.

These include, but are certainly not limited to the nipples, the nape of the neck (just imagine the feeling of someone kissing and whispering into your neck), around the butt cheeks, the perineum (the skin between the anus and the vagina/testicles), the vulva, and the area around the anus.

Just keep it external – bullet vibrators don’t have a flared base or anything stopping them from going too far up the butt and getting lost, so never use them anally! There are plenty of anal vibrators out there if you crave some rumbles back there.

 

Get Wet and Wild

Another reason to love bullet vibrators is that so many of them are waterproof! Of course, this makes them easier to clean, but there’s a much more exciting reason to love waterproof toys: getting it on in the shower or bath.

I’ve already talked your ear off about the joys of using lube with vibrators, but all of those benefits are amplified when you add even more water to the mix!

Whether you get comfy lying down in the bath or get a little crazy in the shower, a bullet vibrator could be your best bud for aquatic play.

To check whether your bullet vibe is waterproof, just look at the product description or packaging. If it’s the right kind of waterproof, it should say ‘submersible’ and not ‘splashproof’.

Put Your Bullet Inside Another Toy

Given how small and portable bullet vibrators are whilst still packing a punch, it’s no wonder that many sex toy makers have wised up to the possibilities of creating sex toys with slots for a bullet vibe.

These days you can find all kinds of sex toys, from dildos to penis rings, that can incorporate the sweet vibrations of a bullet. As an added bonus, many of the bullet vibrators are also removable, so you can enjoy your toy with or without the extra stimulation, and can use the vibrator separately, too!

Share the Fun

Bullet vibrators aren’t just tools for solo sessions – they’re the ideal sex toy for sharing with a partner.

If you like the idea of letting go of the reins and letting your partner impart some serious pleasure on your sweet spots, opt for a bullet vibrator. They’re simple, versatile and easy to get the hang of using, making them the perfect candidate for partners to control who may have trouble wrapping their heads around more complex toys.

They’re also one of the most gender neutral sex toys out there, meaning that you can both find ways to use a bullet vibrator on each other, no matter who you are.

You can use them during sex, too! A slim bullet vibrator can easily be slipped in between you and your partner during missionary-style penetrative sex, or held easily in your hand in other positions, like doggy or cowgirl/boy.

 

Bonus: Keep it Clean

The number one rule we have here at Bedbible about sex toys? Take care of your sex toys.

If you want your pleasurable pals to keep you company for years to come, it’s important that you clean them thoroughly after you use them and store them properly for next time.

Bullet vibrators are, unsurprisingly, no exception. If your bullet vibe is waterproof, you can wash it well with soap and water, or sex toy cleaner. If not, give it a good wipe down with a cloth and a little soap or cleaner, making sure not to come into contact with any electrical parts.

After that, wherever you choose to store your sex toys, you should try and keep them in storage bags or a box and avoid having them touch each other to keep them hygienic and in tact.

There you have it, seven ideas for how to use a bullet vibrator that you should add to your to-do list today!

I hope I’ve done my part to raise the profile of the humble bullet vibe – they truly are one of the best types of sex toy and are often criminally overlooked by sex writers, so consider this your calling to get thee to a sex toy store and buy one.

If you’re after the perfect bullet vibe to add to your collection, check out this quick list of things to consider and look out for as you browse:

 

Your Bullet Vibe Shopping List

Functions

As I mentioned at the beginning of this article, it’s almost always better to opt for a bullet vibrator that has multiple functions.

Many bullet vibes have both multiple intensities and different vibration patterns to choose from, which allow you to switch up how you masturbate and experience some new sensations without having to do all the work.

Rechargeability

Going for a battery-powered bullet vibrator might seem like a good way to save some cash without compromising on power or functions, but many users end up finding them frustrating.

What happens when the power in your bullet vibe runs out mid-session and you don’t have any spare batteries to hand? What a tragedy!

Plus, if you’re planning on using it a lot, the amount you spend on replacement batteries may far outreach the amount you saved by going for a non-rechargeable option.

Materials

There are a whole lot of bullet vibrators out there, so you can narrow your search by only looking for those with body-safe materials.

These include silicone, ABS plastic and stainless steel.

Design

There’s a surprising amount of variation in bullet vibrator designs.

Go for what looks appealing to you and your needs, but remember to consider how easy it will be to use.

Some things that can make bullet vibes nicer to use are having multiple buttons to go forward and backward through its modes (rather than having to cycle through them), and having buttons that are on the side rather than the base of the bullet (which can be difficult to press when you’re using it).

Travel Lock

And finally, a feature that is definitely not necessary, but can be a godsend if you want to travel with your bullet vibrator.

Travel locks are functions that lock your vibrator and prevent them being turned on accidentally – great if you don’t want it buzzing around in your suitcase as you go through the airport!

Most sex toy stores will list if their products have a travel lock function or not, though you will generally have to pay a little more if you want it.
