Bullettes - bullet vibrator by Doc Johnson - review by ladykay

Sleek, Simple, and Dependable

Bullettes is an upgrade on a basic bullet-- a little longer and a little stronger than most, and waterproof as a bonus.It isn't the most exciting vibrator in the world, but always does the job. Its small size and moderate noise level makes it good for traveling.
Simple and fairly strong, waterproof, quiet.
Tip too rounded, turns off at low level.

useful review


While Bullettes can be inserted, its shortness and slenderness mean that it is is meant to be used externally, for clitoral stimulation. This is how it works best, whether for teasing, solo play or play with a partner. It can be paired with an internal vibe or used alone. I would NOT recommend it for anal play, since it is so small and might slip entirely inside.
Bullettes is completely waterproof, and works very well in the shower or bathtub. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a simple, dependable first vibrator or to be used in addition to other toys.

Material / Texture

Bullettes is made of hard, blue, translucent plastic. It is body-safe and easy to clean, though not sterilizable. The plastic is very smooth and has almost no drag against the skin. It also has no scent or smell. I really like the vivid color.

Design / Shape / Size

I like the curves of Bullettes-- even though I don't really use it internally, it gives me options of different surfaces to use against my clit. The rounded bump at the top it is good for direct pressure, although I would like it more if it were a bit more pointed. The small size of Bullettes is definitely an asset for me: I can take it anywhere and store it discreetly by my bed. This would be a great travel vibe.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrations of Bullettes can be felt throughout the toy, but are a little stronger at the tip. They go from low to medium/ high, and are pretty buzzy. After a while using the toy, you can feel the buzziness in your fingers, which is a little distracting.

The Bullettes is fairly quiet-- it can be heard through several layers of blankets, but not through a wall or closed door. It works perfectly in the shower or completely submerged, though you should be careful that the cap is very tightly screwed on. It takes regular AAA batteries, and doesn't run through them fast.

The dial base that changes the vibration level is a little annoying, since it takes two hands to turn, but is ridged for an easier grip. I've also noticed that if you have it on very low and then bump it, it will turn off. However, it doesn't have this problem when on higher levels. It starts to heat up after about 20-25 minutes of use, but not before that.

Care and Maintenance

Bullettes is very easy to clean: just use antibacterial soap or hand wipes. The smoothness of the toy adds to the simple cleanup. It doesn't come with a storage pouch, and the plastic packaging isn't good for storage either, but it's small enough to store pretty much anywhere. It can't be sterilized, so cover it with a condom if you're going to share. Since it's made of plastic, it is compatible with any kind of lube.

Personal comments

All in all, the Bullettes isn't my favorite, but it's good. I use it for quickies or in the shower, and after four months it's still going strong.
Follow-up commentary
This is a bittersweet second review, since my Bullettes is now ready for retirement through my own fault. But I felt I should share this--

The Bullettes worked well for me from when I got it in October until a week ago, when I accidentally put it through the washing machine. But after I took it out, IT STILL WORKED. I'm getting rid of it because there are some cracks in the cap that I can't clean properly, and it's gotten noisier-- but after going through an industrial strength washing machine, the motor was just as good as ever. This is one tough little vibrator.

    From the photos, it looks like this toy has a wrist strap of some sort. Is that what it is? Thanks for the review!
  • ladykay
    Sorry I didn't see the last comment sooner-- yes, there's a wrist strap which is useful for not dropping it in the shower. I'm not sure what the cord is made of, but i always clean it really well, since it isn't anything you can sterilize
