Teardrops of Joy

Intense vibrations, waterproof, straightforward and efficient design. The Teardrop had me crying "Hallelujah!" on more than one occasion. Perfect for partner play, quickies, & teasing. It's clit numbingly good.
Intense vibrations!

extremely useful review


The Teardrop is an unassuming little bullet vibrator that packs a miraculous punch! Best suited to external stimulation, it can be used on any of your erogenous zones: Nipples, inner thigh, labia, clitoris. The one way I will suggest you DO NOT use it is internally. Do NOT insert this into your vagina or anus, unless you plan to toss it in a condom first for retrieval. While it does have a cord attached to the bullet, it is not intended to be tugged or pulled on in this manner. Doing so may result in damaging your Teardrop for good. Just a word of warning.

There are so many different sensations to be felt with this one toy, I was really impressed! Hold the bullet in your fingers and press its length against your clit for diffused, yet remarkable, stimulation; dangle it by its cord for a light teasing buzz; or use the tip of the bullet for pinpoint, mind fucking, cross your eyes in the throes of passion pleasure!

Use it by yourself, or with a partner (my personal favorite). Use it in the shower, because guess what, it's waterproof! Use it in a dorm, because at its highest setting through a door it sounds like a running computer. Take it with you when you travel, because it's small, light, and great for quickies! Use it practically anywhere, anytime!

Material / Texture

The Teardrop is made of hypo-allergenic, phthalates & latex free plastic, which is completely tasteless and odorless. The bullet is smooth to the touch, which can make it slightly difficult to grip; it also makes sliding this toy across bodily surfaces truly effortless! As the bullet is made of hard plastic, it is wonderfully firm and has no bend or give to it. The plastic coated wire connecting the bullet to the remote is somewhat flexible, but I recommend against twisting or kinking it. The teardrop is actually a vibrant light pink color, not quite as red as the pictures would have you believe. It's very light. I was worried the plastic was going to be incredibly cheap, but it feels rather nice when held in your hand. Because the texture is so smooth, this would be a great toy for a beginner.

Design / Shape / Size

This was my first bullet vibrator, and I was very, very pleased. I love the design of this toy! The bullet is the perfect size for stimulating your clitoris or nipples. It's small enough to hold in between two fingers, and large enough to provide vibrations right where they're needed. The teardrop shape of the bullet was amazingly versatile! I absolutely adored being able to control the amount of pressure, and whether the vibrations were pinpoint or diffused. Having a pointed, precise end and a rounded surface is, I believe, one of the best features design-wise. The remote was easy to hold onto, but not ridiculously or unnecessarily huge. The buttons were ergonomically placed, and superbly simple to control with a mere push of your thumb.

The plastic coated wire connecting the bullet to the remote is about 2 feet long, providing ample length to use from almost any position. There are small plastic caps where the wire connects to both the bullet and the remote. These help insure that the toy is truly waterproof, and will remain working even while submerged. The bottom of the remote, beneath the silver Doc Johnson label, screws off for insertion of batteries. There is a small, almost unnoticeable O-Ring inside which should keep all water/lube/moisture out of the battery compartment. I was a little skeptical that the flimsy looking ring would be effective, but it stood up fabulously to all of my shower and bath time tests.

Overall, this is a pretty discreet vibe which would be excellent for travel! Probably not the first thing you'd reach for to throw in your purse though.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrations are located in the teardrop shaped bullet. They are strongest at its tip, but can be felt amazingly well along the entire surface of the bullet. The controls are straightforward and simple. To activate the Teardrop, insert 2 AAA batteries, and merely press the up arrow button. This will turn it on at the softest setting. There are four levels of vibration on this particular bullet; they start off rumbly and low, and then become stronger and buzzier as you progress. Even on the lowest setting though, it packs a good deal of power! You can change the level of vibration by either pressing the up arrow to increase, or the down arrow to decrease. This toy boasts of no particular patterns beyond the 4 steady levels of vibration. Thankfully, you can quite easily create your own by scrolling up or down sporadically through the intensities. I've found this becomes increasingly stimulating when the remote is in the hands of your partner. Nothing like cranking the bullet up a few notches to get your lover moaning and writhing right at your fingertips! Or try toning it down a bit & teasing them like there's no tomorrow.

The Teardrop is reasonably noisy, considering how much power it packs. It was quiet enough for my everyday use in shared living environments though. At the highest setting through both walls and doors, it simply sounded like a running computer. If noise is truly an issue, taking it in the shower will completely mask any sounds it gives off. When taking it in the shower, I like to drape the wire around my neck like a scarf, the bullet & controller hanging between my breasts until I'm ready to use them. The small plastic O-ring keeps the battery compartment completely dry, which is a godsend, as this really is a great toy for in the tub. I'd actually suggest using it there first, as the Teardrop has a tendency to make me squirt. It's that intense!

Care and Maintenance

To clean, merely wash with warm water and antibacterial soap. You can also wipe it down with a toy cleaner, or some isopropyl alcohol to disinfect it. Water, silicone, & oil based lubricants are all compatible with this toy. Remove the batteries when not in use to preserve battery life. I haven't used it frequently enough to comment on how quickly it drains batteries, but I have used it quite a few times and those same tripe A's are still going strong! Vibrations are as intense as ever, and the batteries show no sign of dying anytime soon.
    • Easy to clean


The Teardrop came in a translucent plastic box, with a pink design and similar lettering. There are a few details concerning the products scattered across the packaging. Inside is a molded plastic tray which holds the Teardrop; it is large enough to store two AAA batteries underneath the remote. There are no instructions included with this toy, but it's rather self explanatory. It's not the prettiest packaging I've ever seen, but I saved it to use for more convenient storing.

The Teardrop provides tingly, intense vibrations which can be both mind blowing and frustrating! In my first encounter with this toy, I was wielding the bullet while my lover controlled the vibration levels. I came in about 3 minutes, & moved on to pleasuring my baby in a similar manner. We both had some fun, recuperated, & were ready for round two only to discover it impossible. I debated naming this review "Clit Numbing Fun", it almost seemed more appropriate. After our first go with this toy, it became nearly impossible to come again! So as much as I love the Teardrop and its ability to make me squirt, I shall forevermore label it a one hit wonder. If you're looking for a long extended lovemaking session, look elsewhere. But for amazing quickies? The Teardrop has you covered.
Follow-up commentary
Teardrops of Joy have turned to teardrops of woe. Alas, my beloved Teardrop bit the dust. It was so young too, it still had such life left in it! Unfortunately, it fell victim to my quick and vicious kitty cat. While putting away some newly washed toys, I sat down the Teardrop on my bookshelf, and when I turned back a second later, there was the cat.. chewing on the cord. I immediately exclaimed and chased her out of the room, went to inspect my beautiful toy, and found the bullet completely severed from the remote. It was a tragic day, when I had to retire my Teardrop. I still really adored this toy, and was not ready to see it go. I might purchase another, but I fear it might be annihilated in a similar manner.

    I am curious how you use it on you man.
    Great review.
  • Splendwhore
    dwtim, I actually use it on my partner who is Female to Male Transgendered. He was born a biological female, but identifies as male and will be transitioning through the aid of testosterone and surgery. I used it on his clitoris. I know, that's kind of a genderfuck isn't it?
  • Sammi
    This one looks fun - I want to try it

  • Samanti
    Wow, awesome review
  • Splendwhore
    Thank you.
  • Misfit Momma
    Hope not to offend, but "I used it on his clitoris" was my lol line of the day!
    Shame about it's early demise. My cats like to destroy things too, luckily none of them have been a sex toy yet
  • Splendwhore
    Haha, I take no offense from that. I'm still so peeved to see it go. Planning to purchase another in the future.
  • ? Amanda ?
    I am in love with bullets! I don't have this one yet. Might have to check it out. )
  • Splendwhore
    I hope you like it, if you do get one.
  • Alegria
    I can't decide if this package is cute or tacky...

    Also, my friends dog ate my Gigi, so I understand your pain!

    Good review =)
  • Splendwhore
    Ate your Gigi? That dog would be toast. Sleeping outside for a week, at the very least! I'd demand retribution.
  • Selective Sensualist
    Bad kitty, bad kitty! (Luckily, they are so cute though, huh? They can get away with anything).

    @Alegria: To your friend's doggie: Bad, bad doggie! (He better be a really cute doggie to make up for it! How unimaginable to lose a LELO like that!)
  • mllebeauty
    Oh no, your naughty kitty! I've never been a huge fan of bullets but your review makes me think I ought to try this one. Thanks!
  • Splendwhore
    If only EF still carried it! That's the worst part of the whole kitty-chews-a-lot fiasco. I couldn't buy another one! D:
  • loveme
    I'm sorry she went down in such a horrible manner. Sounds like an amazing vibrator.
