Not sure how to use your bullet vibrator to the fullest? Here are five exciting ways you can play with yours!

"Necessity is the mother of invention." Not to disparage a classic expression, as necessity most definitely is a parent of invention, however, the other is creativity; taking something built and designed for a particular use and, with a little bit of playfulness, discovering that it’s also fun in many other ways or many other places.

A perfect example of this is that age-old sextech staple, the bullet vibrator, which, while frequently marketed as enjoyable for clitoral stimulation, can do its buzzing, sexual wonderfulness far beyond that single point.

So here are five of our favorite alternate ways you can play with your bullet vibrator, some of which may hopefully change your mind when it comes to the capabilities of the trusty bullet vibrator.

First, a Few Words About Safety

Though we began our list with, sort of, suggesting that your imagination is the only limit to using a sex toy in manners not thought of by its manufacturer, this doesn’t mean every device can be used everywhere.

Just look at a bullet vibrator, it’s construction, and all those stimulating mechanical and electronic innards that allows it do it’s exciting voodoo so well, grants it an impressive amount of flexibility—aside from tickling a clit, of course.

But a place you shouldn't try it is for anal insertion play. On the outside? Sure, but only there, as it lacks a flange to keep it from—and sorry for the upcoming imagery—getting sucked right up into the anus. So much so that removing it might involve a quick and embarrassing trip to the emergency room.

Do the size of bullet vibrators, you should also avoid inserting them fully into the vulva. You or your partner don't want to have to go on a quest to find and retrieve a lost bullet vibrator from inside a vagina.

So, for sure, play around with a bullet vibe or any other sex toy you have, but do it with a clear head. Creativity and experimentation is one thing, doing some silly or perhaps reckless is quite another.

1. Nipples

What with all the bright and shiny new sextech gadgets and gizmos that seem to be continually flooding the market and tantalizing our sexual curiosities, a body part that, alas, seems under-appreciated is the nipple.

Depending on what kind of stimulation you like on them, such as sucking over pinching, employing the vibrational delights of a bullet vibrator may very well be just the thing to get them, and the person being vibrated, all hot and bothered.

Our imagination brings up scenarios, such as using a small amount of non-allergenic lube on the toy and then slowly circling one then the other nipple—and when that hot and bothered-ness gets going, try moving from the areolae to more sensitive bits.

2. The Labia

One of the most beautiful things about humans is that we’re all completely and utterly unique in construction as well as in what we like or don’t like when it comes to sex.

For those with vulvas, some find caressing or stimulation of the labia minora or the majora, especially arousal-inducing.

If the idea of this pus a smile on your face, and a tingle to your loins, then why not take your trusty bullet vibrator and rather than apply it straight to the clitoris, gently slide it up and down on or between these lips and see what happens?

A bullet vibrator with a finger strap, like the one that comes with plusOne's vibrating bullet, can help keep your little friend close by so you don't lose it in all the lube and lust.

3: Testicles

While bullets are often listed as a vulva-equipped person’s toy, that doesn’t mean it can’t be pleasurable for different types of genitalia.

For individuals with testicles and who like them stimulated, a bullet vibrator should be given a whirl—and a buzz.

Due to a bullet’s small size it can provide a nicely focused point of stimulation, which makes it easy to stroke up and down the scrotum with it or gently press it against the testicles themselves.

4: The Shaft and Head of the Penis

Staying with those that have them, just as a bullet vibrator can tickle testicles, so too can it be used on other different of the penis.

For the shaft, try moving the buzzing bullet slowly, steadily along the length—when erect or as a possible means to assist in achieving.

Another technique you can try, is to do the same but take the bullet around, in addition to along, the shaft—or put together whatever pattens you and your partner(s) like the most.

Moving onto the head, you can tease it by touching and then pulling the bullet away from this typically sensitive area as desired, including to prolong or possibly delay orgasm.

5. Rimming

We still stand behind our warning that it’s never a good idea to insert one of these toys into your ass. However, bullet vibrators can be fantastic for stimulation around the anus, mimicking a rimming sensation.

A bullet vibrator can even better for exterior anal stimulation than larger toys! As we discussed with its use on testicles, its minuscule-ness allows for more direct, precise stimulation—something tough to achieve with a toy the same size as the entire anal area.

One thing we do want to mention, however, going back to anal safety, is to be sure to clean your bullet thoroughly if you’re going to employ it for anal play and then onto another part of you or anyone else’s body as there are all kinds of nasty, health-related things “down there” you should strive to always keep “down there.”

Blissful Buzzing and Pleasurable Bullets

The bullet vibrator is undoubtedly one of the classics in the wide, wide world of sex toys: a device with a long—and stimulating—history of turning on who-knows how may people since it first appeared all those many decades ago.

However, a classic can also be defined by its ability to be more than merely the sum of its parts: the way a thing may be able to transcend from what they were initially intended to be to become much, much more.

In this spirit, feel free to take whatever you may have in your play-bag or bedside table drawer and put it and your imagination to good use by exploring what else it can do.

Who knows, maybe you’ll discover entirely new methods to enjoy an already old-favorite or put new life into a toy you may have thought wasn’t doing its thing anymore?
