Use

While I was looking at the shape options that the Bullet Buddies offer, I decided I had to chose the Monkey. To be perfectly honest I chose the Monkey because it is holding a peach which to me seemed like nod to the Chinese classic, Journey to the West.

So, apart from my geeky literature moment, Monkey also caught my eye because of its travel friendliness. It fits into a pocket or purse with incredible ease, and its quiet nature makes it the best of travel companions. Keep in mind this Monkey travels light. It only has one setting, so if you prefer several vibration options, this buddy is not the buddy for you.

Monkey wants to play with your external bits like your clitoris, nipples or balls. However, since it is very tiny I would not suggest inserting it vaginally or anally. It is bad enough having a monkey on your back, you don't want a monkey stuck in your sexy orifices.

All in all, I find Monkey shines best when you are on the go or taking a quick shower and need a little pick me up.

Material / Texture

Monkey is composed of an outside skin and an internal bullet, both of which are latex free, non-porous, phthalates free, and hypo-allergenic. The outer sleeve is 100% silicone and the internal bullet is standard hard, non-porous plastic.

Overall, Monkey's texture leans towards velvety. Think of it as a baby monkey covered in matte silicone fur. While it does have distinct features, (face, tale, peach, etc) they are not noticeable during use. Thankfully, Monkey comes with no odors common to monkeys. I was also very happy to note that it does not fling poo. Since my sex toy drawer is located in my bathroom, that would have been a definite deal breaker. On a serious note, Monkey does not smell or taste of anything.

Being silicone, and lacking in any intense textures it makes a good beginner bullet. However, the ease of travel and cute features will surely delight those advanced users as well.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

This little Monkey is shaped like a traditional bullet with subtle, cute monkey features. Overall the monkey design of this bullet does not lend stimulation to the experience other than visual cuteness. However, the little ears on this bullet are a bit of an exception. They are so small and vibrates quite strongly, so when you press one ear to a sensitive area it creates an intense little point for concentrated stimulation.

Monkey is very, very tiny at only 3 inches tall and 1 inch in diameter. Don't look to this toy for any kind of internal stimulation, although it is perfect though for external teasing. The size lends itself to extremely easy hiding. Throw Monkey in your pocket, purse, cellphone case...Hell, it would fit in a larger wallet. Monkey's cute features mean that even if prying eyes happen to catch a glimpse, they may not realize its sexy nature. Now Monkey cannot be locked in the off mode, so if you are worried about the button getting pushed take out the batteries or put them in the wrong way. The button is not super sensitive though so I wouldn't be terribly worried about it accidentally turning on.

Functions / Performance / Controls

As I said earlier in this review, Monkey comes with only one setting. Press the black button at the end of the bullet and it turns on to produce medium intensity, buzzy vibrations. Press the button again and it turns off. These vibrations are all located in the head of the Monkey and do not diminish with pressure. I personally found the one setting quite pleasant, though I will admit that I prefer pulsing vibrations over sustained or steady ones. I also suggest to keep this bullet moving. I found when I let the Monkey stay in one place too long I became a bit numb, but with regular rubbing this was not an issue.

The Monkey is very quiet. You can hear it through a blanket, but not through a door or in the shower. If you do drop it the buzzing can become a bit loud, like a cellphone on vibrate buzzing around a table.

This bullet is completely waterproof. The plastic bullet inside the Monkey skin has an o-ring to keep water from seeping in, and the silicone Monkey sleeve protects it even more. So have fun with this toy in the shower, in the pool, or while scuba diving! However, it should be noted this double layers makes changing the batteries a royal pain. The sleeve does not like coming off and is even harder to put back on. Also this toy takes 3 watch batteries making it a bit of a nuisance when it comes time to change them. On the up side this toy does come with 3 batteries already included. You do need to remove a plastic sheet that wraps around the battery so be prepared for a couple minutes of frustration before the fun starts.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

The outer sleeve that makes up the Monkey is 100% silicone and can be 100% sterilized either with a 10% bleach solution, a bath in your dishwasher, or boiling. Also, this toy does not attract lint. I even used my fluffy terry cloth towel to dry the Monkey with not even a little bit of a lint problem. Sharing without a condom can be safely done, which is great since putting this Monkey in a condom would be like putting a traditional vibrator in a sleeping bag. The internal bullet can be easily cleaned with toy cleaner or soap and water. However, do not bleach or boil the internal bullet.

Do remember, because of the silicone, to only use water based lubes! Silicone lubricants can damage silicone toys.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

This Monkey came in a blister pack that was decorated with pictures of all the great Bullet Buddy options, including Dolphin, Rabbit, Bear, and Worm. The back simply described the bullet, though I have a feeling all the description on the packaging must be the same because even though my package said Monkey, and I received the Monkey, the description talked about the Worm toy. This toy came with a set of instructions but the sheer simplicity of this toy really makes it unnecessary.

The packaging made me think of something you would get as a stocking-stuffer since it is small and brightly colored. If given alone and wanting it to look a bit nicer, wrapping will be necessary. Also, the packaging cannot be reused, so the Monkey will have to find another home, but due to its size and great material, that could be anything from your toy box to a sock drawer.

Experience

This little Monkey is great when I just want a quick pick me up. This toy will never provide me with an earth shattering orgasm, but it will definitely lift my spirits. I also will keep him in my purse for an on the go orgasm, but I would make sure I was using it in a private bathroom since the buzz could be heard between stalls. Too bad I don't have a job with my own private office!

I did give this Bullet Buddy three stars instead of the four I feel it almost deserves, but the batteries are just too terrible to deal with, I wonder if I will actually go through the trouble to replace them. Because of this I just could not give the toy a full four stars.
