Strongest Vibrations I Have EVER Felt

If you are seeking a high powered bullet that is easy to use, look no further. This is seriously the most bang for your buck you can get from a bullet. This toy holds endless possibilities, I've only had it for a day and have already thought of 5 functions for it that don't involve my clitoris. This toy is not for insertion and I highly recommend against beginners starting out with this bullet.
Really intense vibrations, Satin finish, easy to use, easy to clean.
Vibrations may be too strong for some.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This product, by California Exotic Novelties, is a vibrating bullet with super strong vibrations. The box calls them intense vibrations and I can't think of a better words to describe it, the vibrations you get from this toy can be called nothing but crazily intense.

This bullet is for clitoral use mainly but can also be used on the nipples, the area outside anus, and can also be held against your cheek while giving a man oral sex. The possibilities are endless with a bullet with vibrations like these.

The one thing you do NOT want to do with this bullet is insert it into your body. It should not be put inside the vagina, nor should it be inserted anally. The reason behind this is that there is no handle to pull it out with. Tugging too hard on the wire could cause the wire to come out completely or even dislodge the wires connection to what makes this toy go VROOM.

This product does not claim to be waterproof and I high recommend against taking it into the tub, shower, or anywhere water could easily get inside.

This toy is pretty small and could easily be thrown(in a baggy or pouch of course) into your purse of overnight bag without taking up much room at all.

Excellent for couples and well as playing solo. There are many tricks with this you can your partner can discover using his member, but he can also use it to simply stimulate you!

One thing that may be problematic for some, is lack of pinpoint stimulation. This whole bullet gets rocking when you turn it on, and if you need one exact spot hit, this can be done but this toy will be vibrating a broad area, not just where you want it.

Due to this toys intensity, I would not recommend this to a beginner.

Material / Texture

This products box does not tell you what material the toy is made of, but a quick check of Eden told me it is made of PU coated plastic. This fact gives it a mere 7 on the safety scale. But for one person use you shouldn't need to worry. This toy is also phthalates free and latex free for those of you with allergies.

The texture of this product is utterly smooth. The bullet itself appears matte and is entirely velvety. It has a thin line through the horizontal middle that when you run your fingers over you can slightly feel but other than that is completely smooth. The controller mainly has the same texture, super smooth and velvety, but toward the top, right below the red light, there is the control panel, the plus and minus logos in upraised circles. These buttons, as well as the dark purple oval they are in, is not sleek or velvety. Instead, this piece feels rubbery. With your eyes closed you would be able to find this oval patch and both upraised circles.
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

The design of this bullet is similar to most in it's category. The bullet itself is just under 3" long and is 1" in diameter. The indented line I mentioned in the Material/Texture area is just under an inch and a half from each end. The controlling handle is just over 4 1/2" in length, and is right about 1 3/4" wide at its widest point. The curve of this controller makes it a little hard to measure. You have 25' of wire between controlling handle and the bullet itself.

This bullet is designed like a woman made it in my opinion. From the silky feel of the product to the curves of the handle to the intensity of the vibrations, this is an amazing product to help any woman get hers. It is as appealing to the eye as it will be to your body parts.

The bullet as well as the handle are completely solid, firm, and quite hard. I think this is very helpful for the vibrations. While this is great for me and my purposes for this toy, I felt it was important to mention so one doesn't get confused by the term "satin finish". This toy is totally firm and has no softness to it at all.

Functions / Performance / Controls

This bullet has 8 speeds ranging from high to "oh my freaking goodness this is crazy" high. This is definitely not your grandma's bullet and I bet women in the middle and dark ages would have killed for something like this.

The controls are super easy to use. This toy has two buttons on the handle, both are located inside the darkest purple oval on the handle. The top upraised circle has a plus sign carved into it and the bottom upraised circle has a minus button on it. Pushing the plus sign button once will turn the toy on and as you press it the second and third time and so forth the vibrations get stronger and more intense. The toy does not have any pulse functions. The minus button will lower the vibrations back down as well as turn it off.

One thing I don't like about this toy is that there is no immediate off button. So if you are doing your thing and your Mom or your child walks in you have to push the minus button as many times as you pushed the plus button to turn it off. Using the first or second setting, this wouldn't be a problem, but if you are on the highest setting, you've got to hit that minus button 8 times super quickly to turn the toy off. By that time whoever has walked in on you knows what you were doing. Above the dark purple oval that contains the plus and minus buttons is a hole. What in the world could this be for? One might ask. When you turn it on the red light lights up, and as you go through the speeds the red light gets brighter and brighter. When turning the speed of the vibrations down it gets dimmer until it once again turns off as the toy goes off.

This toy starts out pretty loud and can be heard through a blanket. By the fourth setting, this toy can easily be heard through a door. So this is not the toy for you if you are living with roommates or parents and don't want them to know your masturbation routine. When turned on, the entire bullet vibrates, not just the very tip like some women require.

This toys takes 4 AAA batteries. Which sounds like an awful lot, but in reality probably keeps the toy going longer. Also, for vibrations like this, it's worth 4 batteries.
    • Easy to use
    • Not very discreet
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

Since this toy is made of PU coated plastic, it is pretty easy to clean. Warm water with antibacterial soap will do the trick as well as any toy cleaner. I personally recommend using toy cleaner on anything that goes near your vagina, but given the material it will be okay with just soap and water. When washing pay close attention to that indented line through the bullet. This indent would be an easy place for bacteria to hide.
Another way to easily clean this toy is a simple wipe down of the toy using a 10% bleach and 90% water solution.

As for maintenance, this toy does not come with a bag. Since it is PU coated plastic, if it gets scratched hard it could leave a permanent mark on your toy. While this would not harm the toy itself or its vibrations, if you are anything like me you want to keep you new toys looking nice and new. I plan on investing in an Eden toy pouch to keep this guy safe from harms way and looking as perfect as the day I got it. Until then, I plan on storing my new bullet in the box it came in.

Since this toy is made of PU coated plastic, it is safe to use with water based as well as silicone based lubricants. If you are not very wet, I highly recommend the use of lube with this toy. This toy has quite a bit of drag and would be hard to use without lubrication of some form.
    • Easy to clean

The front of this box is mostly clear and states the name of the product in pink writing. The top left corner is the California Exotic Novelties logo and below that a little icon that says "Intense Vibration". In the top right corner is a little icon that says "Satin Finish". Satin finish is the perfect term for the feel of the product.

The rear of this box is pretty detailed. This back panel is mostly white with the top of this panel again stating the name of the product. This side has an image of the bullet and handle inside, with the red light on the handle lit. There is a few fun facts about the toy back here as well. Including "E-Z Grip controller" and "Designed to the highest standard for purity and quality" to name a few. The bottom of the back panel has California Exotic Novelties copyright info as well as contact info.

The sides of this box are identical. The top half of the side panel being clear with white swirls with a really small "Safe and pure icon in the right top corner. The bottom of this panel is white and again has the intense vibration icon. Below that, this panel states this toy is a "Premium power pack 8-speed bullet" and just below that the satin finish and California Exotic Novelties icons again.

The top of this box is white with simply the California Exotic Novelties logo. Also up here is the piece and hole for it to be hung on a shelf in a store. The bottom of this box teaches you to spell vibrator in 6 languages and also has a bar code.

The only piece of instructions this box has is a small white piece of paper telling you how to put the batteries in.

All in all, this toy is not very discreetly packaged. While it doesn't have images of a naked lady, it is pretty obvious from the mostly clear box what is inside and what it is used for. One plus to this box is using it for storage. Inside the box the bullet and handle are nestled into a plastic back piece that will keep them from wiggling around in there and will keep them safely in place until you find a home or pouch for it.
    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable


While this toy is beautiful and feels super silky, I fear it is too intense for my clitoris. Even on the lowest setting I can't place it on my clitoris without wiggling. This has worked out to my partners advantage during teasing though and has worked wonders on my nipples, outer anus, and through my cheek to my partners penis while giving him some oral loving.

All in all, I'm very glad to have it join my collection.
Follow-up commentary
I still like this toy and think it's vibes are very impressive, but it is not my go to clitoral vibe. After trying other toys, I now find that the cord gets in the way and is somewhat distracting. I still this this is an awesome toy for a beginner. It packs a super strong punch for being so cheap.
