Y’know, among my circle of friends I’ve often been known to say “Nothing beats a good* bullet vibe”, and this toy never fails to remind me exactly why I say that. It’s rather quiet, it’s discreet, and it’s a great starter toy for anyone wanting to give vibrators a try.
The RO-120mm is part of a series of bullets by Rocks Off and, personally, I think it’s the best one they’ve done. The toy is 5 inches long, with an insertable length of 3.5 inches. This means that it strikes a happy medium ground in comparison to its bullet-brethren. The 80mm the vibrator is far too tiny to hold comfortably (especially when you throw lubricant into the mix), and the 160mm is slightly too large. So call me Goldilocks because think the size of this bullet is juuust right; At 5 inches the 120mm can sit comfortably in the hand for clitoral stimulation and doesn’t get in the way if you want to put anything else in the mix.
While the vibrations of this toy won’t satisfy any power queen, they are great for beginners. The toy has a buzz to it but it takes the time to spread out the vibrations so that they have a clear impact. The vibrations are pronounced and so well timed that it almost feels as if they ripple from one to another, which is rare to find in a bullet vibrator. The RO-120mm has 10 different function, which is a nice variety, but most of the time I just find myself using the strongest rapid vibration setting and not bothering with the patterned ones.
As with all vibrators, this one won’t appeal to everyone. While it can be inserted, it works better as a clitoral vibrator, so it’s not really worth purchasing for penetration unless you have a specific reason for wanting a small insertable. If you like very strong, deep, or rumbly vibrations then you’ll probably want to look elsewhere too. On top of this it’s not without its negative points.
I cannot tell you how many times I’ve gone to switch out this toy for another one only to curse at its controls as it continues to buzz defiantly away at me. The control is a single button on the top of the toy that turns it off when you hold it down…if it wants to that is. More often or not you’ll find yourself slipping through the different settings in some kind of frustrating sex toy limbo, which can be a definite mood killer.
The other big issue is the logo on this toy. I can understand that Rocks Off want people to know who they are, but the best way to advertise yourself probably isn’t through small indentations in the bullet which are awkward to thoroughly clean. This is made doubly irksome because, without the logo, the toy would be a breeze to clean. But every rose has its thorns, I suppose.
Overall I would recommend this bullet vibe for anyone who has a curiosity for vibrators but doesn’t want to splash out. The 80mm might seem cheaper, but its vibrations cannot compare to this toy and its size makes it far too small to have an impact, so the 120mm is definitely worth the extra £10.
People who are new to sex toys and want to be eased into the experience.
People who like clitoral vibrators.
People who want a compact vibrator.
Do Not Recommend to:
People who like rumbly toys.
People who consider themselves to be ‘power queens’.
People who want a substantial insertable vibrator.
*Emphasis on ‘good’. There’s a lot of generic and, quite frankly, crappy bullet vibes out there, but that just makes the good ones all the more invaluable.
