Jesse's petite treats - bullet vibrator by Doc Johnson - review by purpledesert

The power of this one is anything but petite

For the price, this microbullet packs a powerful punch. The vibration does start very strong on its lowest setting though, so this isn't a toy that works too well with slowly building up vibration.
Powerful, Perfect for pinpoint stimulation, Easy to Use,
Noisy, Buzzy Vibrations, Not Waterproof, Lowest Setting is Intense
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


This simple microbullet is designed for powerful, pinpoint stimulation- and boy does it deliver. This can be placed directly on the clitoris, nipples, or any other external erogenous zones and turned on for play with intense, buzzy vibrations. I wouldn't recommend inserting this toy vaginally or anally; the cord looks a little questionable as a way to retrieve the bullet, and it's not waterproof, meaning that humidity of either the anus or vagina could seep in and ruin the toy. The bullets small size also doesn't guarantee very much g-spot or p-spot pressure.

This toy also appears to be quite partner friendly; the bullet is definitely small enough to fit between bodies, and the hand held controller makes for accessible speed control. Another possible option for partner play is one partner holding the controller to a pinpoint location (wherever that may be) on their own body while the other controls the speed.

This probably isn't the best choice for someone living in dorms or in close quarters with others, as the buzz of this little toy can be heard through several layers of bedding.

Material / Texture

Out of the box, there was no odor besides the expected "plastic" smell. It is exactly the bright orange pictured on this website. The cord is wrapped in a soft plastic insulator, while the bullet and controller pack are made out of smooth, rigid plastic, which doesn't pick up lint easily. It lacks much drag, though lubricant can be used to allow it to glide easier over the body.

The hard plastic of the toy is inexpensive and rigid, making it great for intense pinpoint stimulation. It is an 8 on the material safety scale. This is nonporous, food-grade, hypo-allergenic, latex free, and phthalates free, which are all safety features that beginning and advanced users alike will find favorable. This also means the toy can be disinfected between uses and partners.

Design / Shape / Size

The bullet is very small, making it a great piece to use for pinpointing the clitoris and nipples, though the versatility of the design makes it great for pinpoint external stimulation on other erogenous zones, as well.

Bullet Length: 1 inch
Bullet Circumference: 1 inch
Cord Length: 2 feet 1 inch
Remote Length: 3.5 inches
Remote Width: 1.75 inches

The control pack bears the Doc Johnson logo and a control dial with an etching indicating that the dial should be turned counterclocwise to increase speed, and clockwise to decrease it.

The small size of the controller and plug-in bullet make it relatively travel friendly. The bullet and cord part could pass as some sort of computer accessory, as the plug resembles the kind found on headphones. Be sure to unplug the bullet from the controller before you take it anywhere, though; when the bullet is plugged in, it goes off easily when nudged. It is also wise to travel with this somewhere where it won't be nudged around by other items anyway, as being nudged can cause the remote to split at the seam connecting the top to the bottom.

The small size of the controller pack makes it more suitable for folks with smaller hands. When sitting in the palm of my hand, I found it a little awkward to use given that I had to sort of bend my thumb down to control the dial.

This toy offers a little something for everyone. Beginners will find this easy to use and non-threatening. As far as vibrating toys go, this is about as small as they come. The control is a simple dial that turns on and changes speed when turned counter clockwise. This toy is also powerful, making it a great companion for advanced users looking for powerful, buzzy, pinpoint stimulation. It's also inexpensive, which is beneficial to those on a budget or those looking to experiment before investing in something more expensive. The (AA) batteries are not an odd size, making them easy to track down and keeping the maintenance cost very low.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrations are very, very concentrated within this tiny bullet. The end of it, being the end where the motor works, probably packs the most powerful, pinpoint punch. There are no patterns of any kind, just straight, buzzy vibrations. Applying pressure with the bullet does have the potential to numb fingers.
If used out in the open, this bullet can possibly be heard across a room as a mosquito-like buzz. This can be muffled easily with hands and bedding, though. It's also not waterproof, which may be a deal breaker for some.

The bullet is turned on and the speed increased by turning the controller counter clockwise. Turning the controller clockwise will decrease the speed and turn it off. The lowest speed is 4 vrooms/2.5 bees, while the highest speed is 5 vrooms/3 bees. There is not much variation in speed, so creating a sense of build up may be difficult if you need to start out with power below 4 vrooms.

Care and Maintenance

The plastic of this toy is easily disinfected by wiping down with antibacterial soap and water or rubbing alcohol. There are no seams or crevices that make disinfection of this toy especially difficult. Plastic is nonporous, so disinfection does render the toy safe for sharing. The other upside to the plastic is that it's not a real lint magnet.

It is compatible with water, oil, and silicone based lubricants. It is best to store this toy with the bullet part unplugged and the batteries out of the pack to prolong their life. If stored plugged in and with the batteries in, the controller is easily nudged and turned on, making for potentially embarrassing travel incidents and battery drainage. I store mine with the cord wrapped around the remote, unplugged, to avoid turning it on by accident.

This toy was packaged in a see-through clam shell that shows off the toy within it.


It pops open very easily by pulling the front and back apart. It's not the loveliest gift box, or a very functional storage box. Tucking everything in and rolling the cord up to fit the little bubble it fit into initially is frustrating and time consuming.

There aren't really any instructions for use within the package for use and care of the toy, with the exception being battery insertion instructions. This isn't that bad though- there's an indicator on the dial that shows which directions increase/decrease the speed. The dial control is fairly straightforward and intuitive, anyways.
    • Minimal
    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable


My first impression of this toy was "this looks flimsy, but it's cheap, so why not?" I was pleasantly surprised by the power of this on; it does live up to the 5 vrooms. The sound of the high, buzzy, frequencies was the most unpleasant aspect of this toy, which, for the price and power of the toy, isn't much to complain about.

The toy, being inexpensive, ended up breaking quite easily. It did not break from over use, but rather from rattling around in a bag with bigger, heavier toys. I advise, if you get this one, avoiding doing as I did. Instead, keep it somewhere where it won't be disturbed by other items.

I personally will not purchase this one again, just because I want to explore other types of toys, and this didn't quite align with my preferences. Still, it is worth buying to experience the powerful, pinpoint buzz. I'd recommend this to vibe newbies especially, as this is a good one for figuring out personal preference regarding buzzy vibes and pinpointing.

Follow-up commentary
This one was a fun and inexpensive experiment, but for long-term use I can't really tolerate it. The buzzy vibrations aren't really my sort of thing, and the high-pitched buzzing can get irritating. Additionally, when being used for a long time, it tends to overheat, making me fear for my clit.
