Choosing and ordering
I was really excited to order one of the Rocks Off Ammunition Erotic Ink bullet vibrators because of how pretty they look. I checked out a few of the different prices online and found them cheapest at Bondara. Bondara also gave me an exclusive code for 10% off all orders (the code if you wish to use this too up until January is STR10).
I opted for the largest size, the 160mm bullet, but there are three sizes to choose from. The 80mm, 120mm and 160mm. They each vary in price but I didn’t want to get a smaller one and be disappointed so I thought you can’t be disappointed with the biggest size hey? So that’s what I chose.
Delivery and receipt
I got an email with the Post Office tracking information, and the little parcel arrived in 2 days from ordering. It was a signed for delivery, and as I wasn’t in, the post man left it with the old man next door. Ooo-er.
I didn’t need to worry though, because the parcel was completely ‘generic’ and there was no hint of what was inside or who had sent it. In the past I would have been freaked out by this, fearing that ‘sex toy’ would be written on the box but it was very discreet. Most online sex toy stores are very discreet in their delivery.
In fact, even your bank statement doesn’t say who you ordered from, and it has a different generic name for the store which I find really appealing.
What’s in the box?
The pretty packaging contained the bullet itself, along with two AA batteries inside the bullet which are already included.
Remember, I ordered the 160mm, and for a bullet, this is big. So if you opt for this size, expect something larger than your average bullet. If you prefer a smaller more traditional sized bullet, perhaps opt for the 80mm. It is also a little cheaper because it’s smaller.
There is some detailed text on the back of the pack that includes information about the designer, tattoo artist, Lal Hardy. Never heard of him? Don’t worry, neither had I. But I certainly like his designs on all of the RO Erotic Ink bullets.
He says: “It’s given me a huge buzz to work with Rocks-Off to create the erotic ink range, and I know it’s going to give everyone who uses them an even bigger buzz. Let the fun begin!”
I am already a big fan of the Rocks off bullet vibrators, and their Erotic Ink range is no different in quality.
In fact, I will go so far as to say I think they’re beautiful. I love the look of these shiny decorated bullets.
Here’s where I had a bit of an issue. The back of the pack says when you first receive your bullet, you need to unscrew it, and remove the ‘paper disk’ that is on top of the batteries. That was simple enough.
But it still didn’t switch on. Hmmm. Maybe the batteries are dead? I tried them with some different ones. Still nothing. By chance I poked my finger inside where the batteries go, and out came a piece of clear plastic stating that the batteries included are non-rechargeable. This plastic was a bit random and hidden away.
I put the batteries it came with back in this time, figuring it must have been this plastic that was stopping it working, and hoping I wasn’t going to writing to Bondara to say it wasn’t working. I would have been very disappointed.
I turned it on again, still nothing, so I tightened the lid even tighter. Hooray! It worked.
So when you receive your new bullet here’s what you need to do:
- Remove the paper disc on top of the batteries inside the bullet.
- Remove the piece of clear plastic that’s also inside the bullet.
- Make sure you tighten it back up really tight to work.
It is completely water proof, so I can understand why the lid needs to be on super tight. My error, although I reckon the instructions could be made just a little bit more clear. But I got there in the end.
What are the functions and ease of use?
This bullet vibrator has 3 speeds of vibration, along with 7 patterns. For a bullet, that is a lot of choice and it’s packed full of serious power. I remember when older style bullets used to have just the one speed and one pattern.
Another perk to this little bullet is that it is completely waterproof, meaning you can submerge it and use it in the bath without fear of damaging it.
It can be inserted up to 5 inches. Personally I prefer using bullets externally on the clit for a quick and satisfying orgasm.
You should use a water-based lube rather than an oil-based one so that it doesn’t do any damage to it. Especially to preserve the pretty design.
How is it powered and controlled?
The 160mm Erotic Ink bullet is powered by 2 AA batteries which you can change by twisting open the battery cap (remember to replace it tightly!). There is a single push button that controls the speeds and patterns. Keep pressing the button to move through the different options.
To switch on – press button once.
To change patterns, press the button once, and each time you move through each pattern.
To switch off – press and hold the button for three seconds.
One button to control everything.
Does it work? How does it feel?
The material of the bullet feels very nice. It feels solid and well made. The wide range of vibration patterns and speeds make for a very interesting and varied experience each time and I enjoyed trying out the different patterns. It’s a bullet I will use again and again.
Because this bullet is so big, as well as powerful, it is very effective just held on the external clitoris area and gives good satisfying orgasms quickly.
You can also use the 160mm size internally too. This was one of the reasons why I opted for the biggest size, to give me the most options. It feels amazing inside too. The control button is easy to access being on top for switching patterns whilst you are holding the bullet inside you.
What are the good points?
- Firstly the look. It’s beautiful. Gold and shiny with gorgeous patterns on it.
- The power and number of functions it has (speed / vibe patterns).
- It is completely waterproof and submersible.
- The largest size bullet in this range (160mm is especially nice when inserted, smaller bullets often don’t work that well when inserted but this has a nice girth to it)
What are the bad points?
- My only downside to the 160mm Erotic Ink bullet is that several of the patterns are on the loud side but the good thing is that the very first pattern when you first switch it on is the quietest one. That means you can be safe knowing it’s not going to go any louder if you stay on the first setting in case you’re in a situation where you need to stay super quiet. Remember, it is packed with power, and the 160mm version is a big bullet. So some noise is to be somewhat expected.
It’s the more powerful ‘pulsing’ vibration patterns that make the noise. It’s not off putting to me, but if you were trying to make zero noise to someone in the same or next room, this may not be the bullet for you – unless you stay on the first setting.
If you don’t mind some sound, and you want something that is as beautiful as it is function, this is the bullet for you. It’s a welcome and special addition to my bedside drawer and I love admiring it.
