HIGH Street discount chain Poundland is causing a buzz by selling sex toys for just a pound.
The pink Bullet vibrator is flying off shelves faster than, well, a speeding bullet.
But can it really perform as well as more expensive brands?
We asked sexpert ALIX FOX, to trial seven bullet-style vibrators, from the Poundland one right up to a luxury love toy costing more than £50.
She gave each one marks out of five in four categories: PRICE – what you get for your money; POWER – how strong the toy is; SUCCESS – whether it will help you to orgasm; and LONGEVITY – how long the toy would last.
Here is the lowdown on whether the toys led to some good vibrations . . . or proved to be just an anti-climax.
BUNNY BOILER BULLET
SO cute, with tiny illustrations of rabbits, it would make a cheeky gift for a girlfriend.
And it may be mini, but it’s also mighty. This single-speed toy is a tad noisy but packed enough punch to tingle my fingers.
MANY of us are on tight budgets, so the sweet relief of a little pleasure for just a pound is a steal of a deal – but it had just one speed and was loud and rattled like an OAP’s false teeth during a turbulent flight.
Not quite the hot night in I had hoped for.
WE-VIBE TANGO LIPSTICK USB
THE Tango is genuinely awesome – and it works. It’s pricey but it’s USB rechargeable, so long-term, you’ll save on batteries.
Its lipstick-style shape means you can use it in lots of ways.
It felt like it was plugged into the mains yet it was almost silent.
ROCKS OFF GLOW IN THE DARK
THIS buzzing beauty has seven settings and plenty of power but is whisper-quiet.
I’ve been in noisier libraries.
However the real revelation was that it is also waterproof, so I used it to get dirty while I got clean in a candle- lit bath.
LILY REMOTE CONTROL BULLET
I USED the wireless Lily, gave my partner the remote and we went out to a restaurant.
It takes a lot to distract me from the dessert menu but this discreetly did the job.
Even so, it’s not powerful enough to take me all the way on its own.
ROSE GOLD PEBBLE
IT looks very posh, but is a bit too tame and didn’t fully satisfy me.
The lowest setting felt weaker than a diabetic’s orange squash, though some women will prefer that gentleness.
THE waterproof, ten-speed bullet was rather loud and rattly, but less so with the covers on – though the vibrations were reduced.
Still, it had enough power to take me all the way to O-Town.
