Sometimes a product gets your attention from its name before you ever get a good look at it, while other times it’s the shape, color or design that catches your eye. What first attracted me to this bullet was the name – Glo-Glo A Go-Go. Groovy! What could be better than a product that brings to mind black lights, dancing, and wild grooving combined with glowing nuclear emissions? It’s cute, and catchy, and ultimately I decided I had to review this one.
The Glo-Glo A Go-Go Nuclear Lime Flicker Tip Vibrating Bullet from Topco Sales comes packaged in a clamshell case that’s easy to open and displays the product through the front and back. The insert is black with a green design, and really sets off the green bullet within.
Did I say green? It really is lime. Fluorescent lime that practically glows in the packaging and suggests romping with this toy under the black lights with some Hendrix in the background or getting it on beneath a nuclear reactor. It really is the most wonderful color: fun and funky.
The Nuclear Lime is a corded bullet. The bullet itself is nicely sized at about 2 1/2″ long and 1” wide. Covering the bullet is a luminous TPR sleeve, which is phthalates-free, latex free, and hypoallergenic. The sleeve is squishy and soft and has a small flicker tip about 1/2″ long that extends from its tip. It’s all one piece: there’s no seam to mar the surface. It will take impressions easily, so if you make an indent with your fingernail it’ll hang around for a while before disappearing.
The surface is a bit tacky and picks up hair and other materials with ease, so its best to wash this one both before and after use. The sleeve (which is not removable) wraps around the bullet and extends a bit onto the 30” cord. The sleeve has a very slight odor, but it’s barely noticeable.
The controller for the Nuclear Lime bullet is made of hard plastic in the same fabulous glowing color. It’s a simple controller and operated by a slide button on the front. Above the slider is an LED light that glows red, its intensity increasing relative to the speed you put the bullet on. When this is on high, the light is almost blinding with its brightness.
The back of the controller has a slide-off panel to insert 2 AA batteries. The direction is clearly labeled and the panel easy to remove and replace (but not so easy that you’ll pop it off by accident during use).
The Nuclear Lime bullet is variable speed and offers steady vibrations that go from gentle to quite strong. The vibrations are primarily surface vibrations and buzzy instead of throbbing and are distributed evenly throughout the bullet. While quiet on lower speeds, the bullet is loud on high, and will definitely require some background music (Pink Floyd or the Beatles is optimal) to cover the sound it makes.
The flicker tip is fun to watch in action. It goes crazy with movement as the vibration level is increased. In use it works better on the higher speeds. When on a low vibration the tip stops easily, while on higher you can use it for pinpoint stimulation of the clitoris for a fun flickering feeling unless you press on it too hard.
The unique feature about this bullet is that it glows in the dark. Seriously. Could it be any cooler? If you hold the bullet near a light source, or place it on a table under a 60 watt or so table lamp for a few minutes, when you shut out the light it has a somewhat eerie green glow. The longer you leave it under the light, the brighter it will glow when you’re in the dark. The glow doesn’t last an amazingly long time, but it lasts long enough to have some giggles before getting down to business. If the glow fades, you can put the bullet back under a light source to recharge it.
The bullet is easy to clean, but care should be taken not to submerge it or get water in the controller. It can be washed with antibacterial soap and water and air dried (if you use a towel, you’ll likely leave lint). Its packaging isn’t ideal for storage, but a simple bag or box will do just fine. The batteries should be removed when not in use.
So, Did It Work? The Nuclear Lime bullet is a fun little toy. The vibrations are strong enough to be effective for me, and the little flicker tip was fun for teasing. It’s a good size to nestle over your clitoris, although it’s a bit large to work effectively inside a pair of underwear. The cord is long enough to keep the controller out of the way, and the batteries lasted a decent amount of time.
My husband got a kick out of priming this under the lamp and then plunging the room into darkness, where the bullet glowed and floated in my hand. It reminded him of the scene in Skin Deep with the battle of the glowing condoms with this glowing green orb making its way around the room. By the time the glow ended, we weren’t inclined to turn on a light and power it up again.
Glowing in the dark really is a novelty feature, but it’s groovy, man! You want to pull out your lava lamps crank some psychedelic music, and have some fun.
