One of the most popular, and best value, sex toys is the bullet vibrator. A bullet sex toy is a great first-choice vibe, a fantastic couple's toy and an essential part of every girl's toy collection. A vibrating bullet is a small, bullet-shaped clitoral stimulator and bullet vibrators all share three key features: they're discreet, powerful and versatile.
Bullet vibrators are discreet and because they are small they tend to be quieter than, say, a rabbit vibrator. They're easy to hide in your lingerie drawer, handbag, glove compartment or suitcase for a weekend away.
If you're new to bullet vibrators or are considering adding one to your toy collection, here's a guide that will help you decide which one to get.

If you've ever struggled to orgasm with sex toys, magic wand vibrators may hold the solution for you.
