It’s no secret that the clitoris is a major hot spot for female orgasms. So, it makes sense that you’d want a vibrator that’s specially designed to target that little organ. Enter bullet vibrators: These discreet and simple little vibes are intended to be held against your clitoris, but they can be used on other parts of your body, too. Those little vibrations can feel amazing pressed up against your inner thigh, nipples, anus—pretty much anywhere. Bullet vibrators are great for women who are new to the vibe game, but many experienced vibrator users love to keep them in rotation, too.
“Their intense and concentrated vibrations allow you to zone in on the hot spots that take you over the edge,” says sex expert Jess O’Reilly, PhD, host of the @SexWithDrJess Podcast. Certified sex therapist Kat Van Kirk, Ph.D., the resident relationship/sex expert at Adam & Eve, agrees. “Bullet vibrators are great for targeting sensation exactly where you want it in a variety of positions,” she says.
Discretion is a huge perk with bullet vibrators. If you have a roommate, thin walls, or just don’t feel like advertising your vibe game, a bullet vibrator is a good choice since it tends to be quieter than larger vibes, O’Reilly says. They’re also small and innocuous enough that you can carry it in your bag or travel with it, Van Kirk points out.
