That's One Powerful Bullet

The Short n Sweet is a great beginner's bullet vibe. It has 10 different settings that are easily changed if you get bored of one, and it can give you a nice, sweet orgasm in a short time. The cord is long enough to be comfortable, but this vibe probably isn't the best for use outside the bedroom.

Use

The Short n Sweet is certainly sweet, but short? I was apprehensive about the concept when choosing this bullet vibe. I'm not particularly fond of short orgasms when a longer one can be achieved, but the 'short' doesn't refer to the length of your orgasm but rather how long it'll take you to get there. The Short n Sweet delivered on that front, and I was impressed. It has 10 different settings to satisfy even the most changeable user (like me). I can never stay on one setting for very long but, using the Short n Sweet, I didn't have to. The settings are the pinnacle of variety (which will be explained in detail under Functions), it's cute, it's small, and it's a great little vibe if you're a little horny and have 15 minutes to spare.

This bullet vibe is very easy to use. It doesn't come with directions because it doesn't need them. Just insert two AAA batteries into the base and press the "On/Off" button. A small, orange light above the "10" button will illustrate what setting you're on. To change the setting, simply press the "10" button. Brace yourself, because this little guy is powerful -- you might call him "overzealous." The intensity level increases as you move up the settings, and it can get up to 4 vrooms. Although the actual vibrator cannot be heard from 7 feet away if you're under a blanket, there is the issue of the control being heard when you change a setting -- the button itself is quite loud. I wouldn't take it out in public unless you stayed on the first setting the whole night through. The Short n Sweet can be used solo or by couples. It's a great way to foreplay or -- if you're in a hurry -- for the main event.

Material / Texture

This vibe is made of plastic, but if you're one that will only go for pure silicone or rubber bullet vibes, don't let the plastic turn you off. The texture is very sleek, almost to the point of being "barely there." Whenever I use it, I don't even feel the texture because it slides across the skin so smoothly.

When you first take it out of the package, it has that new plastic-y smell. It's faint and you can only smell it when you put it directly under your nose, but if you take care of it and wash it after each session, that smell will fade after only a couple of uses.

Design / Shape / Size

Like many bullet vibrators, the Short n Sweet is very small. The hand-held portion is a really nice shape and fits a small hand perfectly; the curvature is nice and form-fitting, so it's very comfortable when resting in your hand. The shape also makes it easy to switch settings, because your thumb is right at the controls. The bullet itself is small, about 1 1/2 inches in length and 1/2 inch in girth. The shape and size make it super comfortable when positioning it downstairs. Both beginners and advanced users will appreciate the design.

The whole toy could easily fit in a purse or a medium-sized pocket without notice. The colors offered, however, are not very discreet if someone happens to look in your purse. The length of the cord connecting remote to bullet is about 2 feet long (or 24 inches). It could be concealed and used while walking, but I would not recommend using it in public because of the noise. Another option would be for a partner to use it on you. The length of the cord gives them some mobility but not a great amount, but as long as you're close to one another it shouldn't be a problem.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrator has two controls. There is one "On/Off" button below the "10" button, which controls the settings. Each button takes some effort to push and they are clearly labeled, so you won't accidentally turn it off while you're right on the edge, which has been a problem with other vibrators. However, every pro has its con, and the fact that the buttons are hard to push makes them very noisy. My partner was 15 feet away from me while I was using the vibe and, although he couldn't hear the actual vibrator, he knew every time I changed the setting because of how loud the button was.

There are ten magnificent settings on this little guy. I'm a very indecisive person, so it was great that I got to shift from one setting to the next, and they were all different. It's beneficial to know that you have to run through the settings one at a time by pressing the "10" button. If you want setting seven, you have to press the button seven times and go through the first six settings to get there, which can be a little frustrating. However, I look at those first settings as a warm up, so if you like one of the later settings the best, work your way up to it. It'll be a lot more enjoyable and a lot less frustrating.

I don't think people typically pay much attention to the specific intensities and varieties of the settings vibes offer when they review them, but it's important to know what you're getting out of toy. So I'm going to break it down for you:

Setting 1: Normal, constant vibration; intensity remains at 2 vrooms.
Setting 2: Normal, constant vibration; intensity remains at 3.
Setting 3: Normal, constant vibration; intensity remains at 4.
Setting 4: Escalating pulsations; intensity starts at 2 and reaches 3.
Setting 5: Medium-paced pulsations; intensity remains at 2.
Setting 6: Fast pulsations; intensity remains at 3.
Setting 7: Constant escalating vibrations followed by 3 pulses; intensity starts at 1 and reaches 3.
Setting 8: Medium followed by fast pulsations followed by two long, constant vibrations; intensity starts at 2 and reaches 4.
Setting 9: Normal, constant vibration with small spurts of medium-paced pulsations; intensity of 4 with spurts of 2.
Setting 10: Random pulsations (anywhere from slow and drawn-out to fast and intense), intensities from 1 to 3.

It is waterproof, so you can take it in the shower, but I would leave the remote out of the tub or heavy water flow regardless.

The vibe takes 2 AAA batteries, which are not included. Make sure to buy some before it arrives, because you know you're going to want to try it out right away. The bottom of the remote unscrews so you can insert the batteries, and there are tiny, helpful pictures of which way each battery should be inserted.

Care and Maintenance

It's a very simple toy to clean. Since you'll typically only be using the bullet on parts of you which can get messy, it only requires a quick wash under hot water with a small amount of antibacterial soap. Voila! Clean. I would recommend cleaning not only the bullet itself but also some of the cord, as that part can also come into contact with bacteria and is waterproof. Cleaning the remote can be a good habit as well, especially if you happen to switch hands during play and/or use lube. Be careful when cleaning the remote; even though it is waterproof, if your base is loosely screwed in or not screwed in correctly, your Short n Sweet will have no repeat performances. To ensure this doesn't happen, remove the batteries before cleaning and make sure the base is completely dry before putting them back in.

If you want to use lube with this toy, I would recommend water-based, but because the material is plastic, feel free to use silicone or oil-based lubes if you prefer. I've found I don't need lube with this toy unless I'm using it as a part of foreplay.

It can be stored easily by wrapping the cord around the remote and putting it in a small bag or wrapping it in something, just so that it's protected against bacteria the next time you use it. It doesn't come with a cloth or bag to put it in, so if you don't have one, a Ziplock sandwich bag or a piece of paper towel would be sufficient.

Packaging

The package the Short n Sweet came in was quite large for how small the bullet vibe is. It comes in a large, brown, square box adorned only by a mailing sticker with the outgoing address read as "Web Merchants." The vibrator is tightly packed with paper in the box, however, and it won't move around inside.

Short n Sweet Packed

There aren't any instructions included on the bullet vibrator package itself. They simply claim it is easy to use, petite, waterproof, made of phthalate free body safe material, and should be avoided on areas of the body that are swollen or irritated or anywhere near skin lacerations.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Large package
    • No instructions included

Personal comments

I like to call setting 8 "The Sprinkler," because that's the type of movement it reminds me of. It's probably my favorite out of all 10 settings because it has such a great variation and it doesn't get boring.

I've also found that because this little guy is so powerful, he's a little jittery sometimes. If you're on a high-intensity or frequently pulsating setting, you might find that he doesn't always stay where you left him. It can be a little tiresome to keep reaching down and repositioning the bullet, but since you have one hand free, you might as well just keep it down there in case it happens. If you're trying to be discreet, this can be a cheap way to strengthen some muscles down there.
Follow-up commentary
The Short n' Sweet is still a great bullet vibe, even after many uses. The plastic smell from the packaging is now completely gone. It still cleans easily, and after using it for awhile, it's very nice to have all those varied settings.
