I don’t watch a ton of porn on my computer. Well, not a ton, but an awful lot. And it’s always easier to navigate and type with both hands . So what better to go along with internet porn than a bullet to use while surfing? It sounded interesting to me, so I was happy to receive the Y-bullet from Vibrator.com to review.
The Y-Bullet by Lady Calston comes in a pink and white box, with the product visible through the front. The back has some product information, as well as some suggestions for how to use the bullet. It also proclaims “7 ft cord!” Since the Y-Bullet is powered solely by USB (a fairly new feature that I adore for eggs and bullets, as well as other sex toys), I thought a 7 foot cord would be awesome. Not only would that give me extra maneuverability when on the computer, but also from an outlet (more on that later).
The bullet is matte black, and soft and smooth to the touch. It’s made of plastic, which is non-porous and phthalates free. It’s nicely sized at 2 1/4″ long and 1” in diameter. The Y-Bullet does have a noticeable seam running around the middle that can be felt with your fingers, but it isn’t very noticeable during use.
The Y-Bullet isn’t waterproof (and you shouldn’t be taking your laptop into the tub with sex toys anyhow!), so a bit of care is needed when cleaning. It’s easy to clean with soap and warm water (just don’t submerge it) or you can use your favorite toy cleaner. The cord and dial should be wiped with a damp cloth if necessary. Never get water into the USB end – if you do, make sure it’s completely dry before plugging it in.
The cord startled me. I was expecting to see 84” of wire, but the bundled cord looked much too small. And it was. I don’t know who measured this, but the cord is only 39” in length, less than 1/2 of what the box advertises. A big deal? Not really, if you’re at the computer or have a lowered USB hub to plug this into. Planning to plug into the wall? Yeah, not so good. (The newer version of the Y-Bullet comes with a longer cord which is 7 feet long – good news!)
Since this is USB powered, it must be plugged in to work. While it’s meant to plug into a computer port (and it’s both Mac and PC compatible), the Y-Bullet can also be plugged into a USB adapter and plugged into the wall. Since the cord length is so short, if you really plan to do this, you might want to get a USB extension cord. I’ve decided to only use this bullet to enhance my surfing, so the cord will do just fine.
About midway down the cord is the speed dial. Once the Y-Bullet is plugged in, the dial can be spun with your thumb to select the vibration. This bullet only has steady vibration, but the intensity can be dialed from low (and very quiet) to surprisingly high and strong (and loud to boot). The vibrations are mostly surface vibrations and fairly buzzy.
So, Does it Work? Actually, yes! While the cord length didn’t make me happy, actually using the Y-Bullet did. I liked the size of the bullet, and didn’t notice the seam surfing use. The cord was long enough to plug this into my laptop and place the bullet on my clit, so I could surf away. The bullet is surprisingly strong on high and did manage to get me to orgasm fairly quickly, but it’s much more fun to use on a middle setting to enhance surfing. Since it’s powered by USB, you don’t have to worry about the bullet losing any power no matter how long you go. On high speed this bullet was loud, but on a medium speed it wasn’t noticeable over either the volume of the laptop or background TV.
While the bullet itself doesn’t get too hot, the control did get quite warm when the bullet was used for extended periods (30+ minutes). It didn’t seem to affect the speed or operation of the bullet, and cooled quickly when unplugged.
One other strange thing I noticed was when turning the bullet off, whether it had been on a short time or a long time, the vibrations took a bit to die. They were exceedingly low at that time, and did eventually stop, but not as quickly as I thought they would.
Despite the short cord length, the Y-Bullet is a great little vibrator, and sure to enhance your surfing experience. Thank you to Vibrator.com for sending this to me for free to review!
