The Jimmyjane iconic bullet restores my faith in inexpensive vibes.

The iconic bullet is the best of its kind. Simplicity of operation and versatility of use make it a great toy for anyone. The fact that it's waterproof and has a one year warranty seals the deal.

Use

The JJ Iconic Bullet is a classic. I think it's best used for clitoral or nipple stimulation, but could be used anywhere on the body except inside the anus. Avoid insertion into the anus because the Iconic Bullet is so small and slippery it could easily be lost inside the digestive system. It can be used solo for male or female or, because of its compact size, during sex. You could slip it into a cockring, a dong or any other toy that came with a removable bullet. It can make old toys new again just because it's so much stronger.

I think it's great toy for a beginner because it's inexpensive, has 3 settings and is a great way to find out if vibration is for you. For the advanced user, it will work well in conjunction with other toys. For a couple it's a great choice as a first toy because all genders can explore stimulation of all of their erogeneous zones together and its tiny enough to hold while caressing any body part.

The Iconic Bullet is so small you could use it anywhere. Slip it into the pocket in the crotch of most underwear and g~strings or toss it in your purse or pocket and away you go. It would even fit into the tiny change pocket in the front pockets of most jeans. Because it's waterproof you can use it in the shower, hottub or bath. People living with others or in dorms, need not worry it's non-phallic and could always be explained as a pressure point massager.

Material / Texture

The iconic bullet is made of ABS plastic, an non-porous material that is an 8 on the Eden safety scale. Because its plastic you can use ANY lube with it- silicone or oil or water based. It's smooth and shiny and could be used lube free. The only seam is where the batteries are and it has a rubber ring to keep it waterproof.

It doesn't smell or taste and is such an easy material to work with that a beginner or advanced user could use it with ease.

As long as you keep it clean it is safe to use between partners without putting a condom over it. Always properly disinfect before switching from play around the anus to play in or around the vagina. This is to prevent bladder infections etc.

Design / Shape / Size

The iconic bullet is approx 2 inches long. Perfect for clitoral, nipple or perineum stimulation, but too small for insertion. Make sure that you don't use it anally because it would be lost in no time.

It's designed pretty much like any other basic bullet, this one with a flat tip instead of pointed or slanted.
One end has the strongest vibrations and the other end screws off to open the battery compartment.

It's small size makes it perfect for travel, it could fit in a change purse or lipstick holder. Very discrete. If anyone did happen across it you could easily say that it's for pressure point massage on the neck and shoulders.

The Iconic Bullet is also the perfect size to use in place of any bullet that comes free with another toy. It fits right into the pocket of my vibrating harness here and into the back of my Tantus Goddess dildo here

Bullets, and especially this one because of its high quality and low cost, are perfect for someone brand new to sex toys. Because of its variety of places of use on the body, the iconic bullet is a great way to find out if you even like vibration at all. The one year warranty makes it a risk free opportunity for pleasure. Advanced users will like its versatility for use with other toys and appreciate the longevity of this bullet in particular.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Very simple to control, the iconic bullet has a simple push button located at one end. It has 3 settings each a little stronger than the last, in a rotation so that the fourth press turns the toy off and you start again. One small problem is that it can easily be accidentally pressed off if you are using it in the end of a dildo.

On full power it is approx 3.5 vrooms (I like being specific when it comes to power) and 1.5 bees, fairly quiet but typical for a bullet. I couldn't even hear it underneath my duvet while standing beside my bed so it definitely won't be heard by those outside the room. Full power of the bullet should be enough for the average user, though I prefer a strong 4 or 5 vrooms. Even if it isn't strong enough for some users to reach full climax, it will definitely pave the way.

The performance is great, especially considering that it is battery powered. She seems to get quite a bit of juice out of her 3 watch batteries.

Underwater it works great too, even though I'm not an underwater kind of girl yet but I think this would be a good toy to try that out on to. I did place it in a bowl of water and if any, it only lost about .5 vrooms.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

Wash it with antibacterial soap or toy cleaner and water. You can disinfect it with a 10% bleach solution. Since it's plastic it stores well with other toys and can handle any lubricant.

The box it comes in may be a little flimsy for storage but what I find is great is to go to a dollar store and pick up a soft change purse or even lipstick holder, which would be great for discretion.

Batteries don't need to be changed that often as the Iconic Bullet seems to be really efficient with battery consumption. A great way to save on watch batteries is to buy them on Eden here.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The Iconic Bullet comes in a cardboard box with lots of writing on it but no naked ladies. It opens up like a book, with the instructions written on one side and the warranty and warnings on the other. The instructions are simple and easy to read although they are written fairly tiny so reading glasses may be needed. You could easily use this box for storage of the bullet or something equally as tiny but I think with lots of use it will begin to break apart as its only thin cardboard. Using it to wrap a gift would be about the same as using a cough syrup box or vitamin box, although those might be more appropriate when it comes to whats advertised on the box. depending on the recipient, it could go over well or not at all. If I received a gift in this boz I would probably be bummed that I didn't actually get the bullet! It did not come with any sort of pouch to keep it in but the bullet seems fairly durable.

The Iconic bullet comes with 3 watch batteries which are inside when you get the toy. Before first use you need to open the battery department and remove the little piece of plastic covering the top battery so that the metal spring located in the lid can make contact with the battery
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Recyclable
    • Would make a nice gift

Personal comments

The thing I love best about this simple bullet is the price, the longevity and the warranty.

Experience

I used the bullet in conjunction with other toys, as bullets by themselves don't generally get me off anymore. Into my harness it went and it was plenty strong. Then into the end of a silicone dildo it went and success! A toy that I couldn't previously feel vibration through with the bullet it came with, now buzzed both against my pelvis (in the harness) AND in my hand and vagina!

Biggest score? It's still working a month later after several short (up to ten minutes) uses. The batteries still work and the motor and battery connections are as good as new- something I've never experienced with a bullet for more than one or two uses! Considering that Eden sells the Iconic Bullet for less than $20 and my local sex shops sell the crappy ones for $30-$40, I'm a happy clam and so's my cooch! Highly recommended.

Follow-up commentary
Even though bullets are never quite strong enough for me ( other than the we-vibe tango my review) the JimmyJane Iconic bullet is definitely one of the best wireless ones around. It's like a Timex, "it takes a lickin and keeps on tickin!". I find bullets have very short life spans, like I mentioned above , some only last 1 or 2 uses but the Iconic is living up to the claims of longevity that I perceive from JimmyJanes 1 year warranty. Because I have the Tango and Salsa, the Iconic doesn't get a lot of solo or clitoral use, but it's a perfect replacement for the useless bullet in the fetish fantasy vibrating panty which is made into an incredible ergonomic toy with the JJ addition. The only drawback I think people will find is that it doesn't have any pulse settings, but personally I use almost all of my toys on high and straight vibration. I do think that they could improve on it by changing the power source from watch batteries to an AA like the High Intensity Bullet.
If you are looking for an inexpensive bullet to replace any cheap crappy bullet that comes with a nicer dildo, look no further. I recommend this bullet above all others.of its kind.
