How we test
How to choose

Small but mighty, one of the best bullet vibrators is a must-have in any toy collection. You can use them on your own, with a partner, or in combination with other toys, making them one of the most versatile sex toys around.

Bullet vibrators, as the name suggests, are small pellet-shaped vibrating toys with rounded or pointed tips. They are often very easy to use - with a singular button on the base that controls power, speed, and intensity - and because of this, they often sit among the best vibrators on the market. 

There's no right way when it comes to how to use a bullet vibrator, but many people focus on applying pressure to the clitoris, other areas of the vulva, and erogenous zones like the nipples and inner thighs. 

We've tried and tested a range of the best bullet vibrators from big-name brands like Lovehoney and Lelo, alongside more specialist companies, to deliver a must-have round-up. When testing, we looked at key features like ease of setup and use, shape, material, power, price, and even packaging. We also spoke to a selection of experts in the field, who offered top tips and advice on how to choose the best bullet for you.

Variety, function and affordability tied up into one bullet vibrator? It's got to be the Lovehoney Magic Bullet vibrator with an impressive 10 functions to choose from, a tapered tip for targeted stimulation, and all for under £13. It's the top pick on our list as it combines excellent functionality with an affordable price. 

Much like the Durex Intense Delight Bullet Vibrator, this vibrator also only has one button on the base of the toy. However, pressing this button continuously will move you through different speeds and pulsation modes to rival premium vibrators on this list like the Love Not War Maya and Smile Makers' Surfer. If you're anything like our tester for this toy, Ellen, you'll have a great time. 

"For me, this vibrator was the best out of all those I tried. The variety of vibration modes is great, although I found I just cycled through the first three. It's a powerful toy so chances are, you won't be spending too much time using it," she says. "The downside is the noise that comes with it though. Totally fine for me as I live alone but this is not a vibrator for anyone looking to be discreet."

Plus, for anyone tired of the same purple and pink colourways, this one comes in unique shades of matt black, silver, deep purple, and red. Whether you're looking for a cheap vibrator to use on the regular or as part of wider play, this one's a winner.

One mode means you may get bored easily

The Durex Intense Delight Bullet Vibrator is a fan favourite among the best sex toys for beginners as there's only one mode to navigate. While more advanced toys like the Love Not War Maya (above) will offer many variations of speed and pulsations, if you're new to bullet vibrators, this might be a bit much. At under £11 direct from retailers like Boots and Amazon UK, this one's perfect to try before investing in a more premium toy, should you want to.

There's just one button on the base of the toy to turn the device on and off and the silicone feels super smooth to the touch, which I was surprised to find when I tested this toy, considering the price. Add a dash of lube and it makes for an incredibly smooth and simple experience provided you can stick to just one speed and vibration pattern. If not, try the Lovehoney Magic Bullet 10 Function Vibrator for just a couple of pounds more. 

If you're not new to sex toys but you're looking to complement one of your other toys (like a versatile rabbit, for example) with an easy bullet, this is also a reliable option. With a predicted battery life of 5 hours, you can pretty much trust this one will work whatever the situation. And if it doesn't, all you have to do is change the battery rather than spend ages charging it again. It's hardly the star of the show and its natural negative point is that you can't increase the intensity, but it certainly gets the job done.

A vibrator at the beacon of versatility. The Je Joue G-Spot Bullet Vibrator offers similar sensations to both a clitoral vibrator and wand vibrator while also reaching the G-spot just as well as the best rabbit vibrators do. Now, we're not saying this one device will do all three of those jobs as well as a specialized toy would, but it does have a finger in every pie (so to speak) and it pulls off each function to a good degree. 

"It gives off a strong buzz even on the lowest setting and with five intensity levels, this vibe gives you a good spectrum of power to play around with. I enjoyed using it for precise clitoral stimulation, a rumble against my G-spot, and to create titillating sensations elsewhere on my body," says our expert tester. 

The versatility of this modest-looking bullet vibrator also means that you can use this for much more than a quickie. It gives you the scope to really draw out your session for the ultimate pleasure. Not only can you ramp up from teasing vibrations to G-spot and clitoral stimulation, but you can also switch between the device's seven different vibration patterns for an extra level of excitement. Our tester also really appreciated the shape of the tip, as the slight point allowed for more precise clitoral stimulation.

As for the practicalities of using this model, she says, "The buttons sit in a convenient place so it's easy and comfortable to use. And the premium-feeling material makes for a smooth feel that allows for a little more movement than the silicone in the Smile Makers Surfer which I also tested. It's on the quiet side and has the handy hold-down-to-turn-off function so you don't have to cycle through all the settings when you're done. It's very convenient when a toy comes with this many modes." 

The only negative for our tester is that there's no travel lock on this bullet vibrator, which made for a slightly elevated heart rate (for the wrong reasons) when they decided to take it through security at the airport. But, it is available to buy as one of the best vibrators on Amazon, if you're looking for discreet delivery.

Bullet vibrators tend to be smaller than other types of vibrators generally - but at just 2.5 inches, the Lovehoney Enjoy bullet vibrator is one of the smallest going. It's also super discreet in this matt black colour, easy to store, and simple to use. 

There's just one speed to choose from and one button to turn the device on and off, so it's far from being an advanced toy, making it perfect for those who are new to bullet vibrators or are looking for a budget-friendly buy. You can also pair it with various accessories, such as harnesses and cock rings in some cases, to increase both partners' pleasure during sex. 

The Lovehoney Joy bullet isn't the best choice for use in the shower or bath, however. While most other bullets on our list are completely waterproof, this one is only splashproof, so you should avoid submerging it in water where possible.

More expensive than other vibrators on the list

We-Vibe is a favorite over here at w&h HQ and the brand often features in many of our sex toy edits. The We-Vibe Sync is one of our best remote vibrators, for example.  I gave this bullet to a tester on the team and they said it was one of their best sex toy picks of all time - high praise indeed. 

"It's a really sturdy bullet with a slightly greater length than other bullet products I've tried. I think it's all about balancing pleasure with comfort, but it's also very practical. Using the We-Vibe was a pretty seamless experience generally, easy to navigate the buttons, turn them on and off, and move through the settings. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles but this was an advantage for me," she says. 

This is one vibrator that shows its consideration in every aspect. Firstly, the longer design means that this toy sports an obvious handle - unconventional for a bullet vibrator. You can easily grip and manipulate it while you're in the throes of passion without it sliding out of your control. Our favorite design aspect has to be the tapered tip though. This one is a little less pointed than the Maya and it's slanted on one side for both precision and stability. 

But perhaps the most impressive thing about the We-Vibe Tango X is that it manages to balance both strength and subtlety in its vibrations. It gives off a powerful rumble rather than a ferocious buzz, meaning you get the benefit of the intensity without having to accustom a sensitive clitoris to the almost uncomfortable level of vibration that sometimes comes with strong vibrators, even on their lowest setting.

"Using this vibrator was the most pleasure I've had with a simple bullet and I won't be going back to using my other toys," our tester concludes.

Not very slippery (while our tester liked this, it could be an issue with anyone who suffers from dryness)

Smile Makers have once again managed to bring that element of playfulness and innovation to what could otherwise be just a simple (yet pretty powerful) bullet vibrator. Aside from the eye-catching color and thoughtful contouring which makes for a comfortable grip, what stands out most about The Surfer is the addition of the 'fins' that sit on the rounded head. Their inconspicuous size could almost pass for a cosmetic design feature but these simple little bumps really elevate the pleasure factor by adding another level of clitoral stimulation.

The strong vibrations that this toy boasts go hand-in-hand with the 'fins' to make this a great bullet vibrator pick. Even the lowest setting will give you an impressive rumble (which isn't quite as alarming as the buzz from the Lovehoney Ignite) and the fact that it does this at a truly whisper-quiet volume is admirable and something we haven't seen in any other toy we've used. 

"This is one to keep by your bed if you share a home with others," our expert tester said. "As for moving through the settings, it's a smooth transition from one speed to another, which makes for a pleasant and uninterrupted experience. And unlike some other small vibrators which leave you to laboriously scroll through speeds and patterns to turn off, it features a 'hold down to turn off' function. I thought this was an underrated but much-appreciated capability when you're ready to finish up."

Our tester really liked the premium feel of the smooth surface too, however, there were two drawbacks. "It's not the most slippery of materials so I found this toy was best when used with plenty of lube. And while it does offer a good climax, the vibe didn't offer the same earth-shattering feel of a clitoral stimulator or something with a slightly more pointed tip," she says.

Vibrations may be too strong depending on personal preferences

The first thing that stands out about the Lovehoney Ignite Bullet Vibrator is its simple but satisfying shape. The rounded tip can be used to stimulate arousal around different areas and for more targeted clitoral stimulation, while the slight curve around the button on the other end means that it's comfortable to hold while operating at the same time. This curve, along with the soft silicone material, allows for a sturdy grip throughout use. 

Three intensity levels are pretty standard when it comes to bullet vibrators, but what made this a memorable vibe was the ferocious buzz our tester was met with when turning this on to even the lowest setting. 

"This vibrator has the capacity for some pretty earth-shattering sessions," she says. "This was one of the first times I've used a bullet vibrator and it was totally fine for me. I loved it. But it could be a little bit too much power for those who prefer a softer vibration. That said, you can use just a light touch with this if you don't want so much power."

The button can be stiff when in use

If you're looking for a simple vibrator for under $15 / £10, with limited functions but plenty of durability, you really can't go wrong with a bullet vibrator from Ann Summers. The Ann Summers 3-speed Bullet Vibrator is not the cheapest bullet vibrator on the list but we weighed up function versus price and this one came out on top, offering a bit of both.

It's a simple bullet that I've had for about three years now and I'm pleased to say it still offers the same amount of oompf now as it did when I first bought it. The resilience of this modest vibrator is not to be argued with, that's for sure.

Ann Summers' 3-speed bullet vibrator only has one vibration mode and three intensity levels but if you're someone who favors intensity over (sometimes annoyingly random-seeming) vibration patterns then it will do the job just fine. The tapered tip was also an improvement on the brand's previous baseline bullet vibrator, which featured a more rounded tip. It's this pointed end that really gives the vibrator its wow factor as it allows you to target the vibrations wherever feels best and most stimulating to you.

The one turn-off with this otherwise-excellent vibe is that you have to cycle through the settings to turn off the device, rather than just holding down the button as you would do with others on this list. And as the button can be quite stiff, it can be quite uncomfortable on the pads of your fingers to do so. It also doesn't come with the premium feel that our other best bullet vibrators do, with quite a hollow plastic material. But at such an affordable price and with such long-lasting power, these small grievances are acceptable.

Gathers lint easily

Just like the treat factor of a fancy hotel injects a little thrill into a dalliance, there's always that frisson of excitement when getting out a luxury vibrator for a solo night in. The Dame Pom piques that sensation before you've even taken it out of the embroidered cloth storage bag. 

This isn't a typical bullet-shaped vibrator but it does give you everything a bullet would, with its convenient functions and compact silhouette. It's even smaller than some of the other best bullet vibrators on the list. But the design of the tip introduces another level of clitoral stimulation, which is why our tester opted for this model over the brand's traditional bullet vibrator, the Zee. 

"The extra level of clitoral stimulation is thanks to the quite clever pinched tip that nestles itself against your clitoris, while the rest of the device hugs your vulva for all-around pleasure," she says. "It doesn't have quite the precision as something with a pointed tip, so if you prefer that kind of style this might not be for you, but it does stimulate the area well. The distinctive shape also means that the other side of the device almost molds to your hand so that you can simply press this onto your body, rather than having to try and find a good grip and hold it in place. The simple buttons also sit in a way that is comfortable to access during use."

When it comes to the vibrations, the Pom emits a soft but strong rumble that, like with the We-Vibe Tango X, isn't too harsh on the sensitive clitoral area. The initial vibrations aren't as powerful as with the Tango X, but with five intensities, it more than made up for it when she hit the higher settings. As for the premium factor, everything from the fancy storage bag to the interiors-worthy hues, the elegant shape, smooth material, and the slick magnetic charging port speak to the luxuriousness of this quite unpretentious-looking bullet vibe. Even the grace of its movement and how it bends so seamlessly to allow for personalized stimulation and satisfaction is a high-end feature that we've not seen in any other small vibrator.

The only niggle our tester had with this - and it is just a small niggle - is that the soft silicone material meant that this vibrator collected lint quite easily. "Even when taking it out of the storage bag, it manages to attract little fibers that are seemingly impossible to get off without using a wipe or liquid," she says. Of course, it's always important to know how to clean a vibrator safely after use, but our tester wasn't expecting to have to do it beforehand too. Still, they said on their not-so-lazy days, it's one they don't mind having a pre-session spritz for a little high-end thrill.

These days, most of the best bullet vibrators are waterproof - including the Smile Makers The Surfer and the Je Joue G-Spot bullet vibrator. If you're looking for a vibrator that'll stand up to intense water activity, whether that's sex in the shower or a pleasure session in the bath, the Lovehoney mon ami bullet vibrator makes for an excellent addition to your collection. 

It's one of the more discreet bullet vibrators on this list as well. Being bright yellow, our tester said it blended into the sea of products in her bathroom cabinet, so she wasn't particularly concerned about storing this device after use outside the bathroom. "It's the same colour as the razor handle I'm using at the moment, so I just keep it beside this," she says. 

"Although this vibrator has many settings to choose from - 10 in total - I found the settings easy to navigate through, so I didn't have to spend loads of time working my way through the settings to find one that worked for me. There's only so much time I can spend in the shower without someone getting suspicious! Luckily, it's not a loud vibrator either - not that anyone would hear it over the sound of the shower," she says.

Vibrators for travel need to be among the best discreet vibrators around, thanks to the stigma that still comes with sex toys. It might not be something that bothers everyone, but if the idea of a stranger seeing your vibe going through security makes you cringe and puts you off the idea of bringing one on holiday altogether, it's best to opt for a vibe designed to be on the move. The Lelo Mia 2 ticks all the boxes in this area.

A traditional lipstick bullet vibrator, this could almost pass for a MAC bestseller, so it's perfect for anyone after the more conventionally discreet bullet shape. "While the vibrations aren't out-of-this-world, this does boast a pretty satisfying buzz that you can steadily increase as you build up to a climax," our tester said. "The addition of the multiple pattern modes makes for another level of pleasure and means that you can draw out your session if you want to have a bit more fun. What does inject another layer of stimulation is the rounded conical shape of the tip that allows you to be precise with your movements and direct the vibrations wherever feels best for you." 

She adds, "What makes this one of my top picks for travelling is the super convenient charging port that you can simply plug into any USB charger with no wire required."

The plastic material of this vibrator means this model slides around easily, making it a good option for anyone who doesn't want to use lube with their toy. And what's even better is that the plastic casing doesn't come with the hollow feel of the Ann Summers bullet vibrator, meaning that the device maintains its higher-end feel, despite the lack of silicone (which is only used on the button area).

Some elements of the app are a bit "buggy"

At w&h we've also been testing out the best remote vibrators, and our tester picked out the Svakom Phoenix Neo Interactive as the best app-controlled bullet vibrator. In her review, she picked out the design elements as one of the first impressive aspects of the device, with its slick and stylish silhouette and the handy drawstring bag for storage. "It's not just a pretty face, the Svakom Phoenix Neo Interactive is built with sophisticated technology that packs in 11 different vibrations, scaling from juicy foreplay to mind-blowing stimulation," our tester says. 

While it might look intimidating, the unique shape of this toy helps to both stimulate the vagina internally and stimulate the external part of the clitoris (the nub you see face-on) at the same time. The bigger, ridged bulb sits inside the vagina (quite comfortably), while the flexible neck means it's easy to manipulate the smaller end into position for perfect clitoral placement. It also boasts a snug fit, meaning that you're able to go completely hands-free without worrying about it slipping out or sliding around. It's helped by the soft silicone material, which tends to be a comfortable surface to work with as well.

In terms of the controls, "they're easy to use on the device itself but the app function is an addition that's great for solo play or living out your sexual fantasies and handing power to your partner as I like to do. You can cycle through patterns and intensities or even set the vibration to react to and echo sounds and music from your phone," our tester explains. 

However, one niggle that she did note was that the app would freeze or crash when syncing up with her phone's music library, but found that this was remedied by streaming to the app from a computer using WIFI instead.

Broad tip not as targeted

At w&h HQ we’re big fans of sexual wellness brand Satisfyer, so it’s no surprise it features in our best bullet round-up just as it did in our edit of rabbit vibrators and best wand vibrators. The Ultra Power Bullet 1 is one of the brand’s most affordable toys and it offers an impressive range of intensity levels with plenty of variety to ensure you never get bored. There’s a setting for everyone, whether you want slow deep rumbles or a fast, pulsing sensation for a quick climax. Thanks to its waterproof design, you can also use it safely in water whether you’re enjoying solo bath time or shower sex. 

"I found that the smaller size means it's perfect for beginners like myself who haven't used too many bullet vibrators before," our tester said. "My partner and I also found it really great to use between us when we were together as it's a versatile vibe that can work in different ways for everyone. It also looks so different from many of the other vibrators in my collection with its orange head."

If you want targeted stimulation though, it may be better to go for another model - like the Love Not War x Lovehoney Maya vibrator or the Ann Summers pick. "The broader tip on this bullet vibrator works well for creating all-encompassing vibrations rather than super-targeted ones," she adds.

Louder on higher settings

Maya is sleek in both design and function, made out of premium-feeling recycled aluminium in a stunning rose gold colour, with four different intensities and six speeds available. So whatever kind of orgasm you're after, this one will definitely deliver. 

For me, the Love Not War Maya Sustainable Rechargeable Bullet Vibrator made the top of the list for three reasons. Firstly, I found this bullet vibrator to be larger, coming in at 4.5 inches in length and 3 inches in circumference, making it easier to handle than smaller versions. The tapered tip offers more targeted stimulation than a rounded tip but it's not so pointed that it gets uncomfortable after extended use. Thanks to its size, I found that it could be used internally and externally for different kinds of stimulation, as well as on other parts of the body. 

Secondly, there are plenty of speeds and vibrations to choose from but not so many that I spent my whole time flicking the button to find the right one. When compared to some other picks of our best bullet vibrators, there are fewer choices on the Maya. However, I found plenty of settings and as there's just one button on the base of the vibe to control all the action, any more than this would be hard to navigate in the heat of the moment. 

Thirdly, it's simple to charge and move around. There's nothing more annoying than when you find the perfect vibrator, only for the batteries to drain within a few uses. And if you're anything like me, you always forget to add extra batteries to the shopping list so the toy just gets put to the side. The Maya is so simple to charge. With a simple twist to the middle of the vibe, you can attach the USB cable to the internal point and plug it into the mains. This vibrator also comes with a discreet carry pouch and a quality travel lock that means there won't be any unexpected buzzing from your suitcase if you take it away with you.

Another reason I love the Maya bullet vibrator - and the Love Not War collection as a whole - is the versatility. Once you buy the Maya vibrator (or any vibrator from LNW), you can use the bottom part as the base and the heads are interchangeable. The Amore is the top pick in that category, coming in at £69.99 for the full toy and £44.99 for the head alone.

The tapered, body-safe silicone head offers a precise range of stimulation, with a little flexibility so it can easily be moved to hit the right spot. The Amore can also be pressed firmly against the clitoris for a broader sensation or it can be used for external stimulation such as nipple play. 

"I loved this small but mighty vibrator as it gives slow, deep rumbles to intense patterns for experienced vibe users," one of our expert testers, who also tried out the toy, says. "It's relatively quiet rather than silent, but then I find that not many vibrators are completely silent. There's one button at the base of the vibe which means it's really easy to cycle through all the vibration patterns and turn it off with a hard three-second press. Then to activate or deactivate the travel lock, you just press the button firmly for six seconds."

How we tested the best bullet vibrators

From small and efficient bullets with minimal settings to models with high-intensity levels and toys in special shapes or extra features for heightened pleasure, the expert health team at woman&home has tested a range of the best bullet vibrators from different brands. How we test sex toys is very important to us. We used each toy several times and anything that made for a smooth, satisfying, and thrilling experience every time we used it was worthy of a place in the line-up. 

When testing the best bullet vibrators, we considered: 

  • Ease of setup: We noted how easy it was to set up the bullet vibe. Was it chargeable from the wall or did it require batteries? Many people prefer one over the other as it tends to impact how long the vibe lasts, so we tested a range.
  • Ease of use: How easy was the vibrator to use for stimulation? When testing the vibrators, we recorded difficulty levels for cycling through the settings and button navigation, opting for vibrators that were the easiest to use even if they had many functions. No one wants to grapple with buttons in the heat of the moment. 
  • Shape: Was the toy ergonomic and did it have any features designed to help target the clitoris? Some bullets are pointed and others are rounded at the end so we collected a range of both to offer options for those who prefer one more. 
  • Material: How comfortable was it to hold during use and how did the material feel against our skin? Most bullet vibrators are made from plastic but we also looked at ones made of stainless steel for variety. 
  • How powerful the vibrations were: There's nothing wrong with a powerful vibe but was it a little too much for a first-time bullet vibrator buyer? We explored a range of the best bullet vibrators to offer a spectrum of intensity. 
  • How the device turned off: We don't think anyone wants to scroll through 17-speed settings to turn off after you've climaxed.
  • Price: Unless you're looking for the most premium, luxury bullet vibrator on the market, there's no need to spend an arm and a leg on these small toys. When testing, we considered all price points, relative affordability, and value for money.
  • Packaging: All models mentioned below were delivered in discreet boxes, but how environmentally friendly was the disposal? We assessed whether each of the boxes was fully recyclable or whether it was destined for landfill after opening.

How to choose a bullet vibrator

  • Decide what kind of shape you want: We all have different needs, so while some may prefer a smooth rounded shape, others might want something a bit more pointed for more targeted pleasure, and some may be satisfied with a wider head that can be used in more general areas. 
  • Consider how many modes and intensities you'd prefer: This is a personal choice, explains Megwyn White, a certified sexologist. "Some may just like steady vibrations while others prefer a range of intensities and pulsing patterns," she says.
  • Choose a comfortable material for you: Some people may enjoy using plastic for a smooth experience, while others might prefer silicone for a more luxurious touch. Megwn, who is also the director of education at Satisfyer, also suggests considering if you want a waterproof toy to take shower sex to the next level, too. 
  • Think about whether you'll be using it alone: While most of the best bullet vibrators are designed to use in whatever way you want, either alone or with a partner, some come with remote controls, apps, or Bluetooth functions so that you can be stimulated by a partner even if they're halfway across the world from you. 
  • Decide whether you want to take it travelling with you: If so, a travel lock is necessary to avoid suitcase mishaps. Alternatively, you could opt for a battery-powered model and remove the batteries while travelling.
  • Think about how it feels in your hand: If you are new to bullets, test the vibration in a more sensitive area like the underside of your wrist. Take note not only of the intensity on your skin but also on the fingers which hold the vibe. If it's too buzzy, it can be uncomfortable in the hand. If you find it too intense you may want to either opt for a model with more variety of strength.

What are the benefits of using a bullet? 

There are many health benefits of using a vibrator that's slightly smaller, like a bullet vibrator, over other types. “Bullets are perfect for those that might be intimidated by larger products or ones with added features as they are simple and easy to incorporate into pleasure,” explains White. They're among the most popular vibrators, sex toys, and feature heavily in our guide on the best lesbian sex toys too.

What’s more, bullets are ideal for travel as they’re small, discreet, and easy to store. “They also enhance many erotic activities like oral sex or [they can be used] as a foreplay tool for teasing the body before more intense stimulation," she adds.  

Can you put a bullet vibrator internally?

Bullet vibrators don't tend to be the types of vibrators you can insert and most bullet vibrators come with a warning that they shouldn't be used internally, so it's always important to follow the instructions on your particular bullet if you're wanting to use it internally. 

The main reason you often shouldn't use it inside the vagina is the off-chance it could get stuck or make its way too far into the vaginal canal and you won't be able to get it out. To avoid an awkward ER trip, it's best to just use bullet vibrators externally.
