The Purple Booty Bumper

This is a great inexpensive multiple function toy for beginners only. It is not impressive by any standards and is small in size. It has a moderate odor. The functions for vibration are four speeds, however the lowest two might as well not be considered. This toy needs to be used carefully since there is no taper at its base.
Easy to use, four speeds, great for beginners, multiple uses, great price.
Bad design for full vibration, not for advanced or intermediate users, moderate smell, no taper.

This is a great beginner toy and can be used for quite a few different uses, some better than others though.

The Vivid purple passion bumper is intended to be an anal vibrator and this is how it works best. It can be used as a vaginal vibrator (although do not use it in both without a new condom). It can be used to stimulate other areas such as nipples or the head of a penis.

Material / Texture

The thick sleeve that covers the vibrating bullet of the toy is made of rubber. It is smooth in texture but doesn't have the soft velvety feel that some materials do. The smooth texture does not offer anything for stimulation. This makes it imperative that you use lubrication or a condom. The thick rubber does not have much give either, it is hard around the vibrating bullet and more hollow and movable towards the tip. It does have a smell of rubber, but the odor is not too overwhelming. I have had much worse. This material is not able to be sanitized, using a condom with prevent contamination.

Design / Shape / Size

The design of this toy is flawed. The toy has a thick rubber sleeve over a vibrating bullet egg. The sleeve is hollow so the part that extends past the bullet is flimsier and pushes in on itself when inserted.

The bulbs in the end of the toy don't offer much for anal stimulation and are too small to add anything else to the experience. The vibrations don't travel well the end of the toy so to feel the vibrations you have to insert the toy to surround the bullet. This can be a problem because there is no tapering at the base. The toy could be swallowed anally if you are not careful. This also causes the toy to slide out if it not held in place.

I recommend this toy for beginners because it is small in size. The insertable length is only 4 inches and the diameter is 1 3/8 inches.

Vaginally I found this toy didn't give much for extra stimulation but with the vibration was a nice low key warm up for something more intense. I felt the same when I used it on nipples.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibration is located in the bullet at the base of the toy. This doesn't help the toy vibrate as a whole and so they are quite weak. The rubber is also thick and may not allow the vibration to be as stronger.

This toy does have four speeds though which is nice to work up to. This was one of my first toys and while I was blown away with it at first, I am now quite bored and unimpressed by its vibration power. The controls are super easy to use. There is an up button and down button to allow easy cycling through the four levels of vibration.

This toy is pretty average on noise, this may be because the rubber sleeve muffles some of the sound. On the lowest setting the vibration can barely be heard...or felt.

This toy says that it is water proof but by the look of the deign of the bullet I didn't trust it enough to try it out for fear water would get into the controls. the batter pack part doesn't look water proof at all since there are no rubber seals.

Care and Maintenance

This toy is very easy to care for and doesn't collect a lot of dust and lint like many toy materials do. It should be kept in a cool damp place away from other toys of soft materials.

Changing batteries is super easy and needs to be done fairly often. Some toys allow you to skirt by on not-fully charged batteries. This toy is too weak to be able to do that and works best with fresh ones.

Any lube can be used with this toy, I suggest silicone lubricant to be best compatible with the thick rubber.


This toy comes in a non-discrete purple box that offers little in terms of storage.

Personal comments

If the rubber sleeve were to get damaged on this toy it is not a total loss. It could be cut off and used as a regular vibrating bullet.


I have had this toy for 4 years. It still works just as good as the day I received it. Despite its design flaws it is made very well and I have gotten lots of use out of it.
Follow-up commentary
I've decided to go with the suggestion from my review. I have removed the rubber casing of this toy and have been using it as a traditional bullet. My other one broke so I decided to improvise. The material was starting to smell more so I figured it was time to toss it anyways.
