The Black Magic Bullet is made of Doc Johnson's "Velvet touch," a phtalate-free plastic that is indeed velvety to the touch. There is no odor from the bullet itself, or the controller, which are both made of the same lovely Velvet Touch. The bullet itself has only the slightest seam around the circumference, which in only noticeable upon close inspection and shouldn't cause any problems like irritation.
The Black Magic bullet is a sexy black compact bullet attached by a black cord to a small cylindrical controller (which looks a lot like a small microphone). The thin electrical cord is about two and a half feet long. The cord enters each piece surrounded by a tiny, clear, water-resistant collar.
The bullet itself is just a little over 2 1/2" long, with a diameter of around 1" and the controller is about 5" long, and a little thinner than the bullet.
The controller is a flattened cylinder with a slim silver ring, near the fatter base, with "doc johnson' printed on it in black. The control pad is on the flat part of the cylinder, and consists of two touch-pad-type buttons: an up arrow and a down arrow. Four red led lights indicate the vibration level. There is no 'cycling' of vibrations... vibrate up 1,2,3,4, then down, 4,3,2,1.
The vibrations are VERY STRONG for such a small toy. Anyone looking for a very strong vibe will get their money's worth here. The bullet vibrates, the controller does not.
The bullet is LOUD on the upper two settings, especially the highest.
Because the Black Magic bullet is plastic, it can be cleaned with warm water and antibacterial soap, toy cleaner, or just wipe it down with alcohol. Plastic is also compatible with oils, water-based lubricants, and silicone lubes as well. This is an easy-care toy.
This little charmer is powered by two AAA batteries (not included).
The packaging is an attractive clear box with gothic-romance purple and pink scrolls and text. It is very attractive packaging for a very attractive toy. The bullet and controller are nestled in a clear plastic tray, and could easily be re-nestled and placed back in the box for storage. However, this toy is small enough to fit in a toy box or toy pouch easily.
I dropped the bullet down the front of my pants while at the office, turned it on, and enjoyed the ride. (Luckily, I was the only one left in the office, because the noise would've been a real giveaway.) The lowest vibration is a great feeling to me, just a bubbly tease, and the second level definitely takes me to the edge and beyond. Personally, 3 is almost too strong, and 4 is desensitizing, but I know that lots of women love a stronger vibe. Try this, I think you'll like it!
