Bullets and Clitoral Stimulators
A “bullet” vibrator is a type of clitoral stimulator that is generally smaller and is used for external stimulation only. There is a variety of clitoral stimulators that fall outside the “bullet” colloquialism. Here’s a breakdown:
Bullet vibrators usually fall into 3 distinctive shapes: the standard “capsule” shape, a longer and tapered shape, and the egg bullet which is often times controlled with either a wired or wireless remote.
Perhaps the second most popular type of clitoral stimulator, a wand is a larger toy with a broader head, meant to disperse the vibrations around a larger surface area. The Hitachi pioneered this type of massager, originally meant for back and neck massage, but the general public soon found a new use for this powerhouse of a vibrator. As the industry for sex toys has grown, so has the market for larger, more powerful “wand” vibes to rival the Hitachi.
Suction clitoral stimulators rely on a pulsating sensation, rather than a traditional vibration, which is achieved through suction. These toys offer a completely different sensation than that of vibration, and can often help enhance arousal as a whole. The Womanizer, claiming their toys could bring a woman to climax in less than 60 seconds, is the most infamous of these toys, but there are other brands that have capitalized on this technology ever since.
Special or Decorative Vibes
Some vibes are meant for strictly external clitoral use, but don’t look quite like the tradtional vibrators, usually opting for a sleek and inconspicuous design. Others still have shapes that offer function as well as style, such as the Eva, a hands-free clitoral vibrator…and the Picobong Transformer, whose flexible design allows for various ways to utilize it.
