One of the most popular, and best value, sex toys is the bullet vibrator. A bullet sex toy is a great first-choice vibe, a fantastic couple's toy and an essential part of every girl's toy collection. A vibrating bullet is a small, bullet-shaped clitoral stimulator and bullet vibrators all share three key features: they're discreet, powerful and versatile.
Bullet vibrators are discreet and because they are small they tend to be quieter than, say, a rabbit vibrator. They're easy to hide in your lingerie drawer, handbag, glove compartment or suitcase for a weekend away.
If you're new to bullet vibrators or are considering adding one to your toy collection, here's a guide that will help you decide which one to get.

If you're looking for another bullet vibrator (or just love doing your research before taking the plunge) then you might want to consider the following factors carefully when making your decision.
Wired and Wireless Bullet Vibrators
The first thing to think about is whether you want a wired or wireless bullet vibrator. Most of the bullet vibrators we sell on Lovehoney are wireless, with a built-in button that controls the bullet's settings. Although wireless bullets may appear to be the least intrusive type of bullet vibrators, some people prefer a wired bullet for ease of control and the fact the functions can be changed by their partner while they hold the bullet in just the right spot.
A wired bullet vibrator is controlled via a hand-held controller, rather than a push button on the bullet itself. This type of bullet is great if you find the built-in buttons fiddly, or if you want to hand control of your orgasm over to your partner. The Lovehoney Bedtime Bullet Twin Bullet Vibrator Set (£16.99) is a great example, with two vibrating bullets for extra exploration potential.
Speeds and/or Patterns
Carefully consider what you want from a bullet vibrator. A single speed is great for a beginner, so the Tracey Cox Supersex Bullet Vibrator (£9.99) would be perfect as a first bullet vibrator. If, however, you like to build up to a peak from slower speeds to faster speeds then you need something with multiple speeds like the Tracey Cox Supersex 3 Speed Secretvibe Bullet (£19.99).
If patterns, pulses and various speeds are your thing then check out the Lovehoney 10 Function Dream Bullet Vibrator (£10.00) which has 3 different speeds and 7thrilling functions.
Bullet Vibrator Materials
Although they may all look alike, there are two main types of plastic bullet vibrator: those with a smooth coating and those without. The smooth coated plastic bullets have a polyurethane coating that gives the bullet a matte look and a velvet-touch finish which feels wonderfully soft on the skin. Those without a polyurethane coating have a shiny appearance and feel smoother and more slippery on the skin, giving you slick and frictionless vibrations.
If you want to go for something completely different, why not try the Shag Factory Flower Power Love Bullet (£7.99)? It has a fun bumpy texture that adds a little bit of extra sensation when rubbed against your most pleasurable passion points.
Batteries and Rechargeablilty
The final factor that may influence your decision is the type of batteries the bullet vibrator takes. Because they are small, batteries for bullet vibrators are also small and are usually LR44 or N batteries. If you've not heard of them before, don't let that put you off as Lovehoney sells both kinds in the Batteries for Sex Toys section.
If you're already a convert to rechargeable toys and relish the thought of not having to keep spending out on batteries, then you have a few options available to you. The Lelo Mia 2 Rechargeable Bullet Vibrator (£44.99) is charged by USB and gives up to 4 hours to playtime with just a 2 hour charge.
