I am a big fan of bullets, especially ones that are small, discreet and can pack a nice punch. And the Playtoys Love Bullet is all of the above. I was a little skeptical at first, as this bullet’s remote can feel a little “cheap” and I wasn’t sure how strong the vibrations would be. I tend to use bullets in addition to another form of stimulation, usually penetration. So that is how I decided to try this one out. During the initial testing of the bullet we tried it without any lube, but I recommend adding just a little to it, it will make it slide around much easier. After a little bit of teasing with the bullet we took a little break from it. After a few minutes my lover grabbed it again and held it directly onto my clit, he started with the speed down low, and then worked his way to high. I came very quickly once it was on high.
Material / Texture
Like I mentioned before, the plastic remote felt a bit cheap and lightweight, but after adding the batteries it felt nicer in my hand. It is all hard plastic, except the cord which is covered in soft plastic. The bullet and the remote both have a smooth “velvety” texture.
Design / Shape / Size
The design of the bullet is fairy simple. The bullet is 2 1/4 inches long and 1 1/8 inches wide. The cord had a nice length of 31 inches, which I find nice for partnered play. I feel the remote could be a little smaller, as it might feel too big with someone with smaller hands.
Because of its simplicity, I think it would make a great beginner’s toy, or a nice addition to anyone’s collection.
Functions / Performance / Controls
The controls on this are super simple, it is a slider control, the more you slide the button, the stronger the vibrations. You just slide it all the way down to turn it off. The vibrations are fairly quiet, on high you can hear it if you are in the same room. But I can’t imagine anyone being able to hear it through a wall or a closed door.
Care and Maintenance
Since this is not a waterproof toy, I do not submerge it in water. I clean it with a dampened towel and some anti-bacterial soap. Just make sure to get all of the soap residue off. You can also use a 10% bleach solution and wipe it down with that and let it air dry. Hard plastic is compatible any waterbased, oil, or silicone lubricant.
The packaging for this wasn’t anything fancy, just the basic clear plastic “clam shell” package. It was very easy to open though, which is always a plus for me. When I get a new toy, I just want to open it and check it out.
You could store the Playtoy’s Love Bullet in the original packaging if you wanted to, but I just added it to my bag of toys.
The Playtoy’s Love Bullet is free from phthalates and latex.
If you use this or any bullet internally, I suggest you use a condom with it. When you remove the bullet, pull the condom not the cord. Pulling bullets out using the cord, will greatly decrease their life-span.
When browsing my first sex shop the bullets really appealed to me, they didn’t seem as scary as some of the other items. The price was perfect, too. It was cheap enough to be a good buy for my first time, but didn’t seem so cheap that it would break the first chance I got to use it. This seemed simple and cute, perfect for a beginner.
When my boyfriend purchased this for me we were both so excited to go home and give it a try. The first thing I noticed was that the tickler part of this bullet felt very awkward to me, a little pokey. I ended up cutting that part down a good bit shorter, so that it wasn’t as uncomfortable, but it was probably just me. Once I cut it down to size though I really enjoyed it. I’m sure most women will find the tickler to be quite nice at the length it was originally, but for me, I just liked it shorter.
I really enjoyed the gradual speed control and the different settings. I found that these settings were pretty dead on! They worked out very nicely.
1. Foreplay – a light vibration, just enough to get you started.
2. Tease – this setting had a gradual speed, then it jumped back down to low, left me wanting more.
3. Pulsation – a mixture of different speeds, a nice pulsing sensation.
4. Vibration – this was just a nice steady vibration
5. Climax– a variant of the Tease setting, but this one goes to a higher, more intense speed, usually bringing you to climax
I had this bullet for about six months or so, then the wiring shorted out or something. I would have to wiggle the wires to get it to turn on, which was a pain in the ass, it left me pretty frustrated. Eventually it stopped working all together.
The easy speed adjustment, and the different settings
I personally didn’t like the long tickler, was a little too long
If this product didn’t short out on me, it would be a Must Have! But having a toy die on you is really annoying. I might purchase another one, the price is reasonable enough. It could have been just a defected one that I had.
I give it a 3 out of 5
