Review: Fifty Shades Freed Crazy For You Bullet Vibrator

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching which means that the final film installment in the popular Fifty Shades trilogy is too. Alongside this highly anticipated release, Lovehoney have launched another official product range with each item being named after quotes from the film and book. There have been lots of ongoing debates about this series and its representation of a dominant/submissive relationship but we must acknowledge the fact that it’s also opened up conversations about kinkier sex, toys and bondage in mainstream society. The official product ranges have further encouraged people to try some of the things they’ve seen or read about for themselves and I can’t be mad about that as long as it’s all being done safely.

My partner and I have tried various products from past collections so were excited to be asked to review a few from the Freed range. The item that I was most drawn to will come as no surprise to those who know I love clitoral stimulation but was it as enjoyable to use as it was to look at? Let’s find out! The Crazy For You Bullet Vibrator arrived in a black and purple box with rose gold detailing. There was a product shot on the front, key features on one side and product description on the other. Inside the box, the vibrator was stored on a plastic tray and the charging cable, user leaflet and branded storage pouch housed underneath.

Frustration was the first emotion I met with after opening the box. I wanted to set it aside to charge but instead I ended up wanting to throw it at a wall. Not because the charging system was complicated but because I could not get the rose gold base unscrewed. I even tried the old towel over the hand trick and twisted as hard as I could but it didn’t budge. My partner then gave it a chance, thinking I was just having issues because of my weak joints, but he encountered the same problem. He ended up getting it off after a long battle and several attempts, but by this point I was so unaroused that I could not care less. It takes around 150 minutes to reach full charge and a green light will appear when finished. This is said to give 90 minutes of use but it depends on the settings used.

Made from silicone and finished with abs, this bullet is completely body-safe. Both materials are latex and phthalate free, odourless and non-toxic. The silicone feels high-quality and luxurious but it’s matte finish causes quite a bit of drag. As a result, I would recommend using a good coating of water-based lubricant on the smooth surface to make use more comfortable. This material also attracts a ton of lint so washing before and after use is essential. It’s fully waterproof with no seams or texture to trap dust or fluids so is very easy to clean up with soapy water.

Fifty Shades Freed Crazy For You Bullet VibratorThe travel lock was activated upon arrival so the button needed two consecutive taps to remove it. It could also be removed by placing the vibrator on charge. Two buzzes indicate that it’s been unlocked. Repeat the double tapping process to deactivate the travel lock. To change through the ten different functions tap the button once. There are a total of three speeds and seven patterns to decide between and there’s even a memory function so it will always start on the last setting used.

One thing that I didn’t like about this vibrator, other than its stiff charging cap, is the fact that its vibrations start on the highest intensity, then go to medium, down to low and follow-up with patterns. It should be the other way around, starting on low to allow people to build up in strength. Not everybody can handle full throttle power straight away so this may put some people off. I usually wack vibrators up to high instantly so it’s not a direct issue for me but I still find it frustrating on behalf of others. There’s only one button so you have to scroll past the high-speed to get to the lowest and if it’s accidentally missed then you have to go through every function to get back to the right place. If the settings had been ordered in the standard way or there had been plus and minus controls then this issue would not exist.

If it had started on low then I could have built up through the constant speeds easily enough. The low setting is borderline rumbly where the rest of the sensations are buzzy. The highest is perhaps a little numbing in the hand but not to the extent that it puts me off wanting to use it. It never reached the stage of making the clitoral area extra sensitive or uncomfortable, so that’s good news, but I personally prefer rumbles to buzzing vibrations. I can’t fault the strength of the settings at all though, the power is more than sufficient. It’s on par with Lovehoney’s Desire Bullet in that department and is one of my favourites after my fond favourite, the Tango.

Fifty Shades Freed Crazy For You Bullet VibratorOrgasms from this bullet have been strong and fulfilling. The adorable heart-shaped tip that initially drew my attention in its direction is gently slanted which allowed me to apply direct, precise contact to my clitoris. This is my preferred type of external stimulation so nothing gets me off quite as fast as this masturbation method can. If direct contact is not your preference or you’ve noticed in the past that precision can quickly become overwhelming or cause discomfort, then the Desire Blooms vibrator from the Freed range may work better for you. It has a wider surface area which provides broader stimuli.

Penis owners don’t need to feel left out or that this isn’t a toy for them to use as this bullet works just as well on the glans and other sensitive erogenous zones. My partner enjoyed using it very much although I think the shape of the tip is better suited to my anatomy rather than his. He would rather use this than the Tango due to its softer silicone surface and buzzy vibrations. He prefers buzzy sensations to rumbly, so the Tango can become too much for him at times whereas this is perfect. We would both recommend it to people who like power but want something soft and don’t mind buzzing. We’d also recommend it to patterns lovers as there’s a wonderful variety to choose from.

Overall, I think this is one of the best toys to come from the Fifty Shades collections. I was not particularly impressed with any of the vibrators from the first range but Lovehoney seem to have taken all of the feedback on board to make something much better. It is one of the stronger rechargeable bullet vibrators that I own at the moment and it’s a massive improvement on the Pure Pleasure Bullet from the original collection. It’s quiet, aesthetically pleasing and the colour scheme is absolutely gorgeous. If it wasn’t for the stiff base, buzziness and the order of the vibration modes I would give it top marks. As it is now, I think it’s above three-quarters of the way to perfection.

Review: Rocks Off Atomic Clitoral Vibrator

Clitoral vibrators make up a large percentage of my sex toy collection as they are what I seem to reach for the most. This isn’t surprising as I’ve always preferred clitoral stimulation over everything else and these toys are usually small enough to hold between my partner and I during penetrative sex or other intimate activities. It does however mean that I have lots of vibrators that are similarly shaped and this can become boring at times. Whilst I do love the traditional bullet shape, I enjoy experimenting with something different every once in a while and that’s where this little gem comes in. Rocks Off have definitely stepped up their game with their most recent releases, adding interesting new shapes, funky designs and bright attractive colour schemes to their catalogue. Their silvery-blue Atomic may have caught my attention visually but did it manage to please me clitorally? Read on to discover my verdict!

Rocks Off Atomic Clitoral VibratorPresented in usual Rocks Off fashion, the Atomic was secured within two pieces of plastic casing inside a simple black box complete with cut-out viewing window. A gold banner runs across the bottom of the box showcasing the brand logo and product name whilst the back reads basic product information and a few of the key features. This vibrator comes with the required triple A battery included and inserted so the toy can be used almost instantly upon arrival. Just remove the white paper disc first.

Made from rigid abs plastic, this vibrator is non-toxic, non-porous, phthalate free and completely body safe. It can be used with any water based lubricants for comfortable positioning but I’d be strict with the amount used as lubes tend to make plastic, glossy surfaces hard to grip on to. Thankfully it is fully waterproof so can be rinsed before and after each use and properly cleaned in soapy water. It doesn’t attract lint or pet hair and can be stored safely with other body safe materials.

There is a singular button on this vibrator which is located on the base. This makes it extremely easy to operate. One press will turn on the first setting, each further press will cycle through to the next function and pressing and holding for a few seconds will turn off. It offers a total of ten settings, consisting of three constant speeds and seven patterned modes. I am used to lots of power after being spoiled by vibrators like the We-Vibe Tango so I half expected this toy to not be strong enough for me. Whilst that is somewhat-true as it is not as powerful as I’d usually request, I was able to hit the point of orgasm on a handful of occasions.

Rocks Off Atomic Clitoral VibratorOf the ten settings, my favourite has to be the highest constant speed. The vibrations are buzzy as expected but not numbing or uncomfortable to feel against my bare skin. Patterned vibrations have never been my thing so it was no surprise to discover that these weren’t for me.

For people who do enjoy using these modes, there is the usual selection of patterns to be found on the Atomic ranging from faster pulsations, slow waves and stop and start pulses. There is something to suit most tastes here and although the power behind these sensations isn’t mind-blowing, it should be more than enough for beginners and people who don’t need industrial level strength.

Aesthetics aside, I thought the Atomic looked interesting. There are two precision prongs located on the top with a gap in the middle for the clitoris. It reminded me of a rabbit-ear style clitoral vibrator and although these can be notoriously difficult to get right, I wondered whether the hard plastic surface would allow for a level of pressure that soft silicone can’t. The fit was fine with my exterior anatomy but the gap between the points is rather small so people with an enlarged clitoris may struggle with finding accurate positioning or even coverage. If this is the case, I’d recommend placing the vibrator on its side and letting the vibrations travel to the sensitive spots that way. It provides broader stimulation as the surface area is larger but manages to get the job done.

Rocks Off Atomic Clitoral VibratorI’m a precision kinda girl, so the points resting against the sides of my clitoris provided the direct contact that I like during masturbation. It made the clitoris feel extra sensitive which in turn made me more reactive to stronger vibrators and clitoral clamps later on in the session. The Atomic needed a couple of test runs before I could get the combination of placement, pressure and precision exactly right but once I found the right match I was able to orgasm easily enough. If the vibrations had been rumbly and able to reach all the nerves below the surface of this hot spot I think I’d have enjoyed it even more.

I often hand over clitoral vibrators to my partner as they seem to work well for penis stimulation and sometimes he actually enjoys them more than I do. He doesn’t have the lust for power that runs through my veins, as he’s quite sensitive and finds too much intensity overwhelming, which makes battery-operated buzzing beauties like this one perfect for him. He used the Atomic on its side, as described above, and was soon on his way to a gratifying climax. This just shows that vibrators like this one aren’t solely limited to clitoris owning people and can be used in a variety of sexual scenarios.

Rocks Off Atomic Clitoral Vibrator

Overall, I was surprised by how much I liked the Atomic Clitoral Vibrator. It has the same motor as the Unihorn but the shape of this one worked much better for me. I’ll be the first to admit that this is not the strongest vibrator out there and I’d prefer rumbles to buzzes but there’s just something about this toy that ticks my boxes and allows me to look past those things. Quiet enough to use with others in the next room, this would be a suitable choice for students, parents and people who value discretion and I’d happily recommend it.

Review: Rocks Off Unihorn Clitoral Vibrator

Rocks Off are best known for their extremely popular bullet vibrators. Every sex toy shop that I’ve ever visited has stocked at least one version of them and lots of people recommend them to first time toy users, couples and people who ask for something small and non-intimidating. How could they continue to grow in this area? Branch out from basic bullet shapes and simple colour schemes to release exciting new designs like the Unihorn. This cute little clitoral vibrator has ombré shading that features four or five bright colours and it’s also unsurprisingly shaped like a unicorn horn. It’s an absolute treat on the eyes but was it a treat for my clitoris? Let’s find out!

Rocks Off Unihorn Clitoral VibratorIt was presented in usual Rocks Off fashion, just a classic black box with a cut-out viewing window that shows off the sparkly surface of the Unihorn. There’s a gold banner that runs across the bottom of the box that reads the product name and brand logo whilst the back houses some basic product information and a few of the key features.

Inside the box, the vibrator rests within two pieces of plastic casing that are secured together to keep the toy protected. The required triple A battery comes included and inserted so the toy can be used almost instantly. Just remove the white paper disc beforehand.

Made from abs plastic, the Unihorn is non-toxic, non-porous and completely body-safe. It’s completely rigid so can make the sensations feel more aggressive than a silicone surface would. It is compatible with water based lubricants but don’t go overboard on the slippery stuff as this can make the toy hard to hold on to in my experience. This mini vibrator is fully waterproof so it can be sprayed with toy cleaner and rinsed or cleaned in soapy warm water. It doesn’t attract lint at all and is fine to be stored with other body safe materials.

There’s just one button on this vibrator and its located on the cap. Press it once to turn on, continue to press to cycle through the ten functions and press and hold for a couple of seconds to turn off. It has three speeds and seven patterns to choose from. I wasn’t sure how I would get along with them as I’ve been spoilt with mains-powered vibrations from the Doxy and rechargeable rumbles from the likes of the Tango but my experience with the Unihorn was primarily positive.

As I have said a thousand times on this blog, patterned vibrations aren’t my thing. We have never particularly clicked as I find them distracting, frustrating and off-putting so this isn’t a criticism of the toy, it’s just a matter of personal preference. They’ve never got me close to an orgasm at all but for people who do like these settings, there are a nice variety of different options to choose from. It has some faster pulsations and some slower ones so there should be something suitable for every mood and need.

Rocks Off Unihorn Clitoral VibratorOf the ten settings, the highest speed is my favourite. It is as buzzy as I expected it to be but strangely I didn’t hate this. The vibrations are not overly numbing or high-pitched so they can bring me to orgasm although those climaxes aren’t the strongest I’ve ever experienced. I have managed to hit the point of release and satisfaction several times so I could classify this toy as reliable although I believe it works better for my partner than it does for me.

With a small amount of water-based lubricant, the tapered tip is comfortable to place against the clitoris. I noticed that the pinpoint precision made the clitoral area feel extra sensitive which made me more susceptive to stronger toys that I mentioned above later on in the session. I couldn’t orgasm from using the tip but I discovered during my exploration that holding the vibrator upside down and pushing the shaft against the labia and clitoris felt great. Direct contact is usually the thing that gets me off the quickest but in the Unihorn’s case it was all about the wider spread sensations.

As for my partner, he doesn’t need as much power or precision as I do and often takes ownership of the vibrators that aren’t strong enough to please my clitoris. His orgasms can be induced with very little intensity so even the lower speeds felt pleasant to him. He prefers buzzy vibrations against his glans and shaft as he has found that rumbles are overwhelming for him at the moment so this little gem is ideal for him. It doesn’t make him feel too sensitive that he needs to push the vibrator away from himself but it doesn’t make him orgasm so quickly that he feels like his orgasm was wasted. It strikes the perfect balance for him and just goes to show that Rocks Off make versatile vibrators that aren’t limited to clitoris owning people.

Rocks Off Unihorn Clitoral Vibrator

Overall, I think this would be a great first vibrator. I also think it would be a suitable choice for people who don’t mind buzzy vibrations, don’t need power queen level vibes to get off and want something that’s quiet, unassuming and pretty. The Unihorn and I may not be inseparable lovers but I can appreciate it for what it is and it could bring me to orgasm if I ever needed it to. My partner has now taken possession of this toy as it worked brilliantly for him and he’d recommend other penis owners give it a go too.

Review: Be Sassy Be Tender Vibrator

Earlier in the year I tried the Be Charming Lay On Vibrator from Orion’s Be Sassy collection and it wasn’t the best. Not all sex toys are suited to everyone, which is understandable, so I didn’t want to rule out the rest of the range based on that one experience as these products are silicone, affordable and well made which makes them great candidates to recommend to others. I asked Orion if they would be willing to let me take another chance on the collection and they kindly obliged, sending over the Be Unique and the Be Tender. This one is a lay on vibrator like the original toy I reviewed but it has a different shape so I hoped that would make me feel differently about it. Was that the case or did I encounter deja vu?

As before, I cannot fault the presentation. It’s plain with no tacky images to be found. The box shows a front and back view of the product and also offers up a couple of informational snippets. The sides just read basic descriptions in a host of languages regarding the key features. The box opens via a magnetic clip to reveal the vibrator behind a viewing screen, which is a nice touch, and it comes with a generic user guide and charging cable.

Unlike the Be Unique, the Be Tender is rechargeable. It has a port on the back for the jack to be placed into and this is covered via a moveable flap of silicone. The other end of the cable goes into a USB connector. The lights on the control panel will flash whilst the charging is taking place and go steady once complete. The box estimates a two-hour charge period with up to an hour of use depending on the settings being used.

Created from silicone which has a polyurethane coating and a small amount of plastic, there are no concerns regarding body-safety. It’s phthalate free, odourless and non-toxic amongst other great things. It’s also hypoallergenic which means that it can be properly cleaned between uses and won’t hoard bacteria. The materials feel high-quality and the vibrator itself appears to have been put together well. It doesn’t have any visible seams or rough edges whatsoever and aesthetically it is pleasant to look at. The resistance to the silicone is minimal as it’s rather smooth but a coating of water based lubricant around the areas that come into contact with the clitoris will remove that.

A slight gripe I have with this range is that neither the box, manual or website specifies whether the products are waterproof. The guide does indicate that cleaning should be done with soap and water so I assume that it is but it’s not completely clear. I have had no problems rinsing but I would exercise caution to others and advise making sure the charging port is completely covered so no water gets into that area.

Be Sassy Be Tender VibratorOperating the Be Tender could not be simpler as it only has two buttons. A power button which turns the device on and off and a function button that scrolls through the available modes. The control panel lights up when in use and flashes in accordance with the setting being used. It has eight modes in total with three of them being constant waves of vibration and the remaining five being patterns. I haven’t used those as I don’t enjoy them and prefer constant stimulation.

So how did we get along? Well I didn’t find myself feeling much stimulation when holding the toy as it was probably designed to be held. If I positioned the ears around the clitoral hood and buried the nose of the rabbit into it then I couldn’t get as much pressure as I needed and felt numbed by the vibrations faster. The motor of the Be Tender is as buzzy as the last vibrator I tried from the range but it seems to have a better frequency to it which means it’s not unbearable. It still becomes numbing if left on an exposed area for longer than a few moments but I discovered a work around as I experimented.

I decided to use it with a layer of fabric between us, be that a thin bed sheet or my underwear, as it felt much better. It dampened the power slightly but I felt that the pros outweighed that con on this occasion. It meant I was able to place the vibrator on that area, without it touching my skin, prolonging the time I could use it for comfortably. The motor is rather powerful so if it wasn’t for the buzzing I’d orgasm very quickly but as the sensations don’t travel below the surface level of the clitoris it takes a little longer. When there’s fabric between us I can get a refreshing climax in before the numbing sensation gets grip and takes over.

Be Sassy Be Tender VibratorPlacement wise, I use it with the ears downwards tickling the vulva and the back of the toy pushed up against the clitoris. It may not be the way it was designed to be used but it works for me better than the ‘correct’ method.

Sometimes playing around with positioning can make all the difference in whether a toy can be suitable to me or not so I don’t like to leave options unexplored. The method I used allowed me to push the back of the toy into the area that I wanted the stimulation focused on and I could comfortably lay on it and grind my body against it to get the desired pressure and sensation.

I’m not exactly sure why I’ve always enjoyed lay-on vibrators or toys that I can use whilst laying on my stomach but I seem to get my strongest orgasms with my head buried into a pillow. I feel more in control this way for some reason and more likely to relax and let myself get lost in the moment. I assume that it’s linked in with the way I used to masturbate in my pre sex toy era (grinding against something placed underneath me) as that would make a lot of sense. The Be Tender suits those circumstances perfectly so would be great for people who masturbate similarly to me or people who have mobility issues and need the vibrator to stay in place to do most of the work.

Overall, I would have to be completely honest and say that this is better than the one I tried previously. I didn’t hate this encounter and found ways to make it work for me. I would not be able to use it successfully without some form of fabric barrier between us due to the buzzing of the motor but this makes an interesting change from my typical unclothed masturbation habits. The other thing that isn’t perfect about it is the noise levels. It’s unfortunately not the quietest tool in my box and I couldn’t use it with others in the house unless I had background noise to drown it out. Outside of those two things, the Be Tender is a definite improvement on the last lay-on vibe and has definitely made me feel more optimistic and positive about the rest of the Be Sassy collection.

You can purchase the Be Sassy Be Tender Lay-On Vibrator (€44.95/£40.23) from Orion.
