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.

Previously, the fluids resulting from female ejaculation were often dismissed as peeing during sex, leaving naturally talented squirters stressed and embarrassed.

We now know the liquid is closer to what’s secreted by the male prostate when stimulated, leading many to refer to the Skene’s glands (the glands around the G-spot responsible for the secretions) as ‘the female prostate’.
And, most importantly, squirting is now celebrated! Most lovers now see the gushing liquid as an amazing physical expression of arousal, and women are clamouring to experience the exotic sensations a squirting orgasm brings.
Want to join Club Squirt? This guide will help, but like everything in the world of sex, you’ll need to spend some time figuring out what works best for you and your body.
Before you begin
If you are in a relationship, it’s advisable to bring it up with your partner before surprising them with your new skillset. Although obviously your bodily secretions are your own business, it’s worth giving their preference some consideration.
Also bear in mind that for many women it’s a skill that, once mastered, may start happening involuntarily.
The good news is that thanks to a litany of recent porn videos starring female ejaculation, many people are already fully signed up to the idea and eager to reenact the film fantasy in their own home.
Relaxation is a key aspect of squirting orgasms, so ensure you stay chilled as you prepare.
You can learn solo or with a partner, so pick whichever you prefer.
Make sure you clear your calendar - potentially over multiple sessions - and don’t put yourself under pressure. Use the bathroom beforehand, and put some towels down.
