In fact, our Loving Joy Power Bullet Vibrator won the best vibrator by  the Good Housekeeping Tried and Tested Panel 2017.

Clitoral Vibrators – Clitoral vibrators vary in size, and a bullet vibrator may also be a clit vibe, however a clit vibrator may not necessarily be a bullet vibe. This is because some clitoral vibrators may be too large or be a different shape and as such would not match the criteria. The purpose of a clitoral vibrator is to stimulate the clitoris, the most sensitive erogenous zone. These vibrators are very popular to use alongside a dildo or another vibrator for internal stimulation.

G-Spot Vibrators – G Spot vibrators can come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, and may also feature simultaneous clitoral vibrations. What they all have in common is that they have been ergonomically designed to apply increased pressure to the g spot, which is located inside the vagina, usually behind the clitoris.

Magic Wand Vibrators – Wand massagers were originally created as sports massagers to relieve stress and tension in muscles. The vibration power that they produce is huge, and they are some of the most powerful vibrators available. Wand vibrators are primarily designed for clitoral stimulation, and many people enjoy using that whilst having penetrative sex with their partner.

Rabbit Vibrators – Rabbit vibrators were made famous by the sex and the city TV show, quickly after their debut on the show they became one of the best sex toys to own. Rabbit vibrators feature a shaft that either vibrates or contains pearl like beads that rotate inside you, giving you incredible internal sensations. They also have a bunny shaped bullet vibrator attached to the base of the shaft that is designed to give simultaneous clitoral stimulation.
