The Screaming O bullet is made of smooth seamless hard plastic with a visible rubber O-ring and push button, none of which has any scent whatsoever. There is a small indention in the end from the casting mold, but it isn't large enough or deep enough to create any extra sensations during use, good or bad.
Ever wonder what's inside of a vibrator? Well the one thing that makes this bullet different from so many others is that you can see through the colored plastic. The motor, the batteries, the oscillator... all visible, which will appeal to the more curious sex toy users.
The bullet's size is what we call a "standard", measuring 2-3/4" x 3/4", which means that it fits in a lot of other sex toys. You can use it as a replacement vibrator in many cock rings and in certain toys that have holes in the base, such as the dildos manufactured by Tantus Inc. The small size also makes it very easy to hide or to carry with you, even in a pocket.
Another positive feature of the Screaming O is that it is completely waterproof, not just "splash proof,” so not only can it be played with in the shower, it can be submerged in the bath for long periods of time without damaging it.
The Screaming O has batteries included, and when it comes to controls this toy is a no-brainer; just push the button on the end. Push on, push off. Very good Daniel Son.
The vibrations are steady and, for something that operates on 3 watch batteries, it's fairly strong. Not like Hitachi wand-type strong, but more powerful than the average bullet vibrator. You can feel the buzz most distinctly in the end (away from the button), and it becomes mild enough down below the O-ring that you can hold the toy without making your fingers numb.
The Screaming O isn't an extremely loud toy, but anyone who has their ear pressed against your door will likely hear a faint high-pitched buzz.
Since it's both plastic and waterproof, you really don't need to be overly careful when taking care of this toy. You can wash it with soap and water or a toy cleaner and wipe it dry. We suspect that the button and O-ring are silicone, so we suggest that you stick with water-based lubes if you need one since silicone-based lubricants can damage silicone.
The toy comes in a simple soft cellophane wrapper with some features listed on the back and a clear "window" in the front so you can see the bullet. We have no idea if it's recyclable or not, but there certainly isn't any wasted material there, and you can tear it open just as easily as you can a condom foil.
We did find one thing to be a little quirky with our Screaming O bullet. After we washed it for the first time, we removed the batteries to see if we could find any water inside (we didn't), and when we put the batteries back in the toy wouldn't come on. After lots of fiddling with the contacts, shaking it, trying fresh batteries, and then eventually putting the original batteries back in, it started working again. We haven't had any problems whatsoever with this toy during use, even after the one time that we dropped it, but twice now we've had that odd happening of it not working after we've taken the batteries out.
All we can figure is that there must be a little "play" in the compartment that lets them become misaligned or something, so don't give up on this toy if it won't work after a battery removal; just take them out and try re-seating them again.
I discovered that if you don't press the button too hard, it's possible to get the vibrator to work in short buzzes in sync with your finger without actually turning it on. This is particularly great if you have your partner blindfolded and want to tease the nipples, because she'll never know when it's coming... zzzt, zzzt! As for being on the receiving end of it, this is another one of those toys that she can press against my perineum and it will vibrate my entire package in a very good way.
While this isn't the absolute strongest bullet vibrator we've ever encountered, it's better than a lot of them that we've tried and plenty to get me off. With no more than these cost, I foresee us replacing some of our cock ring bullets with Screaming O's.
