What a Jagged Little Pill

If you are looking for something to get you off quickly, this may not be the one for you. If you are just looking for something discreet to tease and add that little something extra you may love the Orange POP! I would give it five stars if it was more powerful.

Use

Yes, I am an Alanis Morrisette fan and titles are hard for me, but usually making some music reference is easier.

When I first got this toy, the silicone and the ridges felt so good in my hands and that line in that song "You Learn", "It feels sooo good... " popped into my head and I thought, hey this does kinda have the shape of a pill. That being said... do NOT "swallow it down". This "jagged little pill" DOES feel sooo good, but "swimming in your stomach" ? I think NOT! Okay, now that I have had my rant, let us get down to business.

The Orange Pop! Vibrating Love Bullet by Topco Sales is a small bullet type vibe wrapped in lovely orange silicone. For me, the color and the material is what had me NEEDING this toy. I have not been a big fan of vibes in general, especially these bullet type vibes, as they tend to be very weak. I have started to use vibes a lot more lately and have really been looking for something small enough to use during sex with my man. I wanted something without a cord and with a safe material so I could use it around the anus without worry of ruining it for later use on my breasts or clit, or my man's balls and taint. This silicone bullet fit all of my criteria and then some. I LOVE the color and honestly wouldn't have looked at it twice if the orange hadn't screamed out at me "Look at me, I'm ORANGE SILICONE".

I suspected that the vibes might not be very strong, as is the case for most vibes of this type, and I was right. However, I did not get this exclusively for me. I know my man doesn't yet like strong vibes on his balls, though I am hoping to work him up to at least trying it. I will talk more about the strength of the vibe later. What I want to address right now is how versatile this bullet is. The silicone is soft and feels great on even the most sensitive parts of the body. The ridges give it that "something extra" without being intense. I love the way this feels on my breasts and nipples, inner thighs, and taint. My man likes this on the his VERY sensitive balls, taint, and anus. We have tried using bullets and vibes before on him, but it could sometimes be too much. The material helps a lot with this, diffusing the vibrations somewhat and making them feel like a gentle caress.

Material / Texture

This bullet is made of plastic, surrounded by phthalate and latex free silicone. There is no smell or taste and the silicone is soft and a bit squishy, though firm. I hope that isn't confusing. It is, to me, the perfect balance between firm and soft. There are four rings(or ribs), that wrap around the tip of this toy which gives some great stimulation without being intense. I don't see beginners feeling the texture is extreme. Had this toy been made of a harder material like metal or hard plastic, I would say it could be, but the silicone is so soft that the texture isn't going to hurt. There is a bit of drag caused by the silicone, so I would recommend beginners use lube so as not to get irritation, but the vibes aren't too strong, so this may not be an issue.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Ribbed for your pleasure!

Design / Shape / Size

I love the design of this bullet. Not too bulbous, no cords, and nothing to make this awkward while holding. This measures about 3 inches in total length, with 2 and a half of that being the silicone portion. It measures 3 and half inches around and 1 1/4 inches across the thickest part. It's small, but not so small that you have a hard time keeping hold of it. Very discreet, quiet, and travel friendly. Of course, if some one saw this they might know it is a sex toy of some kind, but you could pass it off as a small massager. If not, it is small and easy to hide.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The controls are simple: one push on the button, and it turns on. There is only one setting and it is not very strong. It's not the weakest vibe I have had, but I would have liked at least one other higher speed on this. It is not enough to get me off, but is great for teasing and foreplay. If I find a way to take the orange sleeve off of the vibe and insert a stronger one, I will let you know in my follow up review.

The thing that surprised me about this bullet is how quiet it is. You can barely hear it while in use; though it is a bit louder when you put some pressure on it or put it on a hard surface. Even at its loudest, you would not be able to hear it behind closed doors, or if the door was open for that matter. Maybe the silicone helps with this, but I have never had a bullet vibe that didn't make at least some noise. This would be perfect for people that like to take a vibe with them everywhere they go. If you can get off from the weak vibes, you could use this in a bathroom stall without being heard.

This toy takes three AG13 batteries, which are included. I guess these are watch batteries, but are bigger than the tiny hearing aide batteries that I assumed were watch batteries. I don't wear watches, so I don't know for sure. I need to purchase some energizer ones to see if they make the toy feel stronger, but money is tight at moment. I will do this by the time I write my follow up review. I will also give an update on the battery life at that time. I have used this about four times for about 15 minutes each time and haven't noticed the vibes getting weaker.

One thing I didn't know until I got it was that this is also waterproof. There is a black silicone O ring that keeps the battery compartment dry. Of course, I did test this, turning it on and dropping it in a sink full of water. After about five minutes, there wasn't the slightest bit of moisture in the compartment.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Weak

Care and Maintenance

Silicone lube in not compatible with other silicone toys or silicone lubes. I find that I don't have to use lube; but, if you do, use only water based lube. Silicone holds temperature really well, so this toy warms up quickly with your body heat and holds the heat in. This is a nice toy to try experimenting with temperatures on sensitive parts of the body. I wouldn't go extreme because of the electronic components, but hot or cold water from the tap should give you some nice temperatures to play with.

Silicone is not porous so cleaning is simple. Just wash with antibacterial hand soap and warm water. You could also use toy cleaners. For sterilizing after anal play, you could use boiling water, though I would be careful of the plastic part and electronic components. I wouldn't say, pop this in a pot pf boiling water, but maybe dip the silicone part in it for a minute or two. You could also use a diluted vinegar or bleach solution, or perhaps alcohol. I have not noticed this toy pick up lint or hair very easily, though I do store it right after clean up in a plastic sandwich bag.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

Simple cardboard and blister plastic packaging. The biggest words on the front are "Climax silicone" so it is is not very discreet, though it doesn't have any pictures on it. The back has some directions for care, cleaning, and use. The packaging is not good for storage. Detached from the cardboard backing, the plastic blister will hold the bullet, but will not keep it from getting dusty, as it is open where it was originally backed by the cardboard.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Minimal
    • Moderately informative

Personal comments

I did find the level of stimulation I got from this toy was dependent on how turned on I already was. My nipples for example, did not get much stimulation from the vibes unless they were hard and sensitive from other play. My skin in general is much more sensitive when I am aroused. The same is true for my man.

Experience

This is really fun to use during oral sex. I can stimulate my man's balls and taint while my mouth is busy with other things. I am very much one of those people who can not "pat my head and rub my belly" at the same time, so this works really well for me. I can also use this on his head and shaft while my mouth is down below. Like I said before, the vibes aren't enough to get me off but he uses this on my clit while going down and it feels really great.
Follow-up commentary
While the bullet that came with this was very weak, the silicone sleeve has held up perfectly. I bought the Iconic Bullet to replace the weak one and it is a toy I use often. I still need to find a strong bullet that will fit this that doesn't go through the watch batteries as fast as the Iconic. Other than that, I love the texture and the color of the sleeve. I gave the bullet it came with to a friend and she likes it, so this may be perfect for some one who likes REALLY LIGHT vibrations. The watch batteries that came with it lasted about 2 hours total play time. She bought some Energizer batteries, and they lasted a bit longer and made the vibrations a bit stronger, though not much. I would like to note that the bullet's vibrations are diffused by the silicone a bit. Even the Iconic, which is a pretty powerful vibe feels weaker with the sleeve on. I just LOVE the bright orange silicone, so this is a great toy for me. If you don't care much about the silicone, you could get a much stronger plastic bullet for the money.

    Great review! Thanks!
  • Maiden
    Thanks! I'm still trying to get the silicone sleeve off this intact so I can use a stronger bullet. It peels back from the bullet, but I am afraid it is glued somehow at the very end. I WILL find a way! lol
  • Carrie Ann
    Please let us know if you do cuz I want this if it can be removed, desperately!
  • Tori Rebel
    Great review
  • MuffysPinguLove
    I love the way this bullet looks! Great review
  • Maiden
    Thanks everyone! I will let you know, Carrie Ann. I don't want to ruin the silicone, but I was thinking about using some of that "Goo Gone" oil, to see if it will dissolve the glue. This will be as a last resort however. I had planned on purchasing the Iconic Bullet anyway, and it is the same size as this bullet. I would LOVE to be able to use the Iconic with this beautiful orange silicone wrapped around it!
  • Maiden
    I did it! I did it!!!!!
    I decided to try sticking one of my plastic manicure tools down into it to get more leverage. I was careful not to puncture the silicone, instead pushing on the bullet itself with the tool. It allowed me to pull the silicone away from the toy enough to use leverage to pop the bullet out from the bottom. I hope this isn't confusing, but I don't know any other way to describe how I did it. The good news is, that there is no glue holding it in. It's just really snug fit. So you could probably use lube or something to make this easier. I didn't want to do that because if it was glued then I would have no way of cleaning the lube out. Hope this helps. I have just ordered the iconic bullet, so I will report back once I get it to tell you how it fits!
  • Carrie Ann
    I am SO buying one of these as soon as I can!
  • Blinker
    REALLY? I am so trying this now. Thanks for the tips, and great review!
  • Maiden
    Yup, Yup! I am SUPER excited. I thought I was going to have to go out and buy some "goo gone" to dissolve the glue and take the risk of ruining the silicone. So glad I didn't have to. Just be careful using sharp or pointy instruments when trying to get it off, as you can puncture the silicone.

    great review!!
  • Isabel0329
    Excellent review and thanks for explaining the mod you did to it. I find most bullets to be too weak so it's nice to know you can change it out if you work really hard.
  • Maiden
    Thanks.

    I am just excited because I got this for the lovely orange silicone. I love the way it feels on my skin, but was disappointed in the weak vibe. It wouldn't have been so much trouble if I had known it wasn't glued. I took special care because I didn't want to ruin the silicone. Hopefully others will be able to get it off more easily knowing it isn't glued in!
  • Maiden
    So, I just got the Iconic Bullet, and it fits PERFECTLY. I slid it right in the orange silicone and OMG... does it feel amazing! The Iconic has three intensities and the lowest one is about the same as the bullet that came with with the Orange POP!
  • XXXXXXXXXXXXX
    Thank you . Nice review
  • brokenangel
    Great review thanks for letting us know that the bullet could be removed from the sleeve!
  • Maiden
    Thanks! With the new bullet, it is the only vibrating toy I use regularly. I love how small handy it is, and the silicone makes a plain plastic bullet feel so much yummier!
