How to Use Egg & Bullet Vibrators

How to Use Egg & Bullet Vibrators

Here is our guide on how to use egg and bullet vibrators.

Egg and bullet vibrators are smaller than standard vibes and designed to deliver clitoral thrills. For these reasons, we usually recommend them to newbies.

The discreet size also makes egg and bullet vibrators great for couples. As they are external pleasure providers, there’s little-to-no chance of a (male) partner feeling threatened or ‘replaced,' an issue which can sometimes creep up with more phallus-shaped toys.

Of course, vibrators deliver thrills anywhere they touch, so this type of sex toy is also lots of fun for nipples, toes and penises.

How to Use Egg & Bullet Vibrators

Bullet & egg vibrators can be really intense in power. This is for two reasons:

  • Their petite proportions mean the vibrations from the motor inside don’t have far to travel, making them bundles of buzzing jumping beans!
  • They are often made of plastic, a sex toy material that doesn’t absorb vibration like softer materials. A lot of power is transmitted with super-efficiency along its smooth, sleek surface.

This is fantastic news if you need or enjoy intense stimulation, but could blow your socks off if you are new to vibration. (Not literally - your socks will stay on!) 

Try approaching your clitoris from the side, starting on the gentlest vibrator setting. Direct stimulation of the clit can feel too intense to be pleasurable, and some even find it painful. The most receptive parts of the clitoris are often the sides. We recommend exploring the whole vulval area, focusing on where it feels best.

A powerful vibrating egg like the Ultra 7 Vector Egg is great for clit stimulation, especially for those who find it difficult to orgasm. We’ve recommended this vibrator to many pre-orgasmic women who have since had their first orgasm.

How to Hold Egg & Bullet Vibrators

Holding a super-powerful egg-shaped or bullet vibrator can sometimes numb your fingers – we call this "getting vibrator-hand." If this happens to you, nestle your vibe between your labia lips, lie back and enjoy the vibrating sensations hands-free.

If the sensation feels too powerful for your clit, try cupping the toy in the palm of your hand and enjoy subtle vibrations felt through your fingertips instead.

Tip: Be gentle with your vibrating egg or bullet vibe if it has a cable running from the bullet to the battery pack. Pulling too hard at the cord will cause it to loosen and damage the toy.

Tips & Tricks to Try with Egg & Bullet Vibes

  • A vibrating egg or bullet is small and discreet enough to cup against your clitoris to offer the extra stimulation you may need to orgasm during intercourse with a partner.
  • A good trick is to rest the egg or bullet lengthways, allowing the vibrations to diffuse over the whole vulva. You’ll likely find this builds arousal - the outer lips are sensitive to stimulation.
  • Vibrators feel good to penis owners too. Place the small bullet vibe at the base of the penis, or run a vibrating egg along their perineum for thrilling orgasms.
  • Egg vibes are not designed for internal use, but maybe you’re a rebel and want to slip it inside anyway? Pop the egg into a condom first, so you can safely remove it without pulling on the cord.
  • Egg vibrators with a cord leading to a separate battery pack may seem cumbersome. But it can be easier to operate the settings with a controller in your hand instead of pressing the +/- buttons on a sex toy resting between your legs. Another advantage is that you can hand the control to your partner and let them take you on a vibrating journey – a great way to discover new ways to play!
  • Imagine the clitoris as a clock face with 12 at the top and 6 at the bottom. Many women & vulva owners report enjoying clitoral stimulation best at 10-11 or 1-2. Working out which 'time' works best for you makes it likelier you'll have an orgasm. #TopTip

Not Safe For Anal Play

Egg vibes and bullet vibes are not safe for anal play. They are too small and can easily get sucked up by the strong muscles inside the butt. If this happens, there is only one thing for it: A trip to A&E. 

If you’d like to treat your butt to a thrilling buzz, choose an anal vibrator instead. Anal toys have been designed with safety in mind, so they’re safe to be inserted into the bum.
