Bullet buddies - bullet vibrator by The Screaming O - review by Allison.Wilder

Monkey Love

Bullet Buddies by The Screaming O is an amazing bullet vibrator. It's small, quiet, fairly discreet and easy to use. It does run on watch batteries, but don't let that deter you from grabbing this toy since it is actually a great little worker. I couldn't be more pleased with this toy!

extremely useful review


Bullet Buddies by The Screaming O is a basic bullet vibrator covered by a silicone sleeve. It's intended for clitoral stimulation, but it feels wonderful for foreplay when pressed against the erogenous zones, especially the nipples. It's far too small for vaginal insertion or g-spot stimulation and it's lacking a flared base so it's not safe for anal penetration.

This handy little bullet will work for beginners and more advanced users, however it only has one speed so users that want lots of variety won't get a lot of use out of this toy.

Material / Texture

This toy is a standard smooth bullet vibrator covered by a red silicone sleeve, earning itself a 10 out of 10 on Eden's Material Safety Guide. It's made of a food-grade material, it's also hypo-allergenic, latex-free, non-porous and phthalates free making it a great toy as far as material goes.

It's very smooth to the touch with raised ridges that make up the details in the monkey face and tail. It has tiny little nubs for the ears that are bendy and don't get in the way at all. The monkey design doesn't really enhance the experience at all, but it doesn't take away from the toy either. You can barely feel it while the toy is in use.

There is no discernible taste or scent to this bullet, even right upon removing it from the packaging.

    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The product page measures this toy at three inches in length with a three and a quarter inch circumference, but it's actually just shy of two and a half inches long from the tip of the monkey ears to the bottom of the push button base and three inches in circumference making this a very small toy.

Since it's so small, it's very easy to tuck it away in a pocket or purse for travel. It's a deep red, so it is eye-catching and not super discreet, but at first glace (and with no further examination) it could easily pass for a child's toy.

The red bullet buddy is designed to be a monkey and it actually looks like a monkey. I was pleasantly surprised because it's really detailed for such a small toy.

It's a little smaller than I would have liked, but it really does what it's supposed to and I have no complaints.

Functions / Performance / Controls

This toy really couldn't be any more simple to use than it already is. It's operated by three watch batteries that come pre-loaded in the toy and it has a very simple push button base. Push the button once to turn the bullet on, push it again to turn it off. The push button is really easy to push, but not so easy to push that it can be bumped and turned off during use.

It operates at one steady, medium vibration with no patterns or pulsation. While there is no variation here, it really does work well and it's so quiet. It cannot be heard through closed doors and is easily muffled under the covers.

It's waterproof so it can be a nice little addition to any shower or bath time, too!
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Not enough variety

Care and Maintenance

Silicone is one of the easiest materials to clean and maintain. It can be sterilized by boiling it for three minutes or by throwing it in the top rack of your dishwasher. It can also be cleaned by running it under hot or warm water and using an anti-bacterial soap or by wiping it clean before and after use with a toy cleaner or an isopropyl rubbing alcohol wipe.

Silicone is notorious for attracting lint and dirt, so wipe it dry with a lint-free towel or cloth or let it air dry and store in a cool, dry place and set apart from other toys so the colors don't bleed.

Even though this toy is easily sterilized, condoms or toy covers are recommended when sharing toys.

Silicone is compatible with water-based lubricant only, so steer clear of oil and silicone-based lubricants to keep this toy from degrading and lasting as long as possible.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


Bullet Buddies is packaged in a simple see-through blister pack and is very minimal. There were no instructions for use or care included. It can't be re-used as the second it's opened, it can't be re-sealed but it is recyclable.

    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable


I really enjoy my little monkey bullet. I thought for sure it wouldn't have enough power since it runs on watch batteries, but I was pleasantly surprised. It works like a charm every single time I use it. I really wish it didn't run on watch batteries since they can be a little pricey to replace once they're dead.
