What do the following have in common?
- Studding like a calla lily’s spadix stalk
- A heart-shaped leaf, like part of a clover
- A teeny-tiny, round measuring spoon
They’re all whimsical but functional shapes among Je Joue’s new bullets!
Not only are they cute, but they pack a punch — some recurring features come to mind when I think of Je Joue sex toys as a whole:
- Decadent and deep vibration quality
- Luxuriously matte silicone finishes with little drag
- And, especially more recently, plush silicone coating
Shoppers wanted more, and Je Joue obliged with their recent releases.
Je Joue vibrators, as with many other manufacturers’, started on the firm end with hard plastic shells and just enough silicone to encase the entire unit. Then came a little cushioning at the Mimi Soft’s tip, then a little more on atop their Classic and G-spot bullets.
Shoppers wanted more, and Je Joue obliged with their recent releases, from their goddess-inspired G-spot vibrators to their latest generation of thicker, even cushier bullets.
Let’s look closer at the Je Joue Amour, Duet, and Vita.
How squishy is the silicone, really?
For one, while the silicone is flexible and softer than ABS plastic, it’s nowhere near marshmallow-like. When I measure it with a Shore durometer, a reading of 15 A comes up — quite firm for a mid-sized dildo but still pliable on such a small scale.
Je Joue’s silicone firmness was a clever choice since it transmits vibrations well.
What else to expect from the second-generation Je Joue bullets
There are a few other commonalities among these mini-vibes:
- Again, the silicone is suuuper velvety against the skin
- They’re bigger than the original Je Joue bullets, measuring about an inch in diameter at the “stem”
- That makes them too bulky to fit in most bullet cavities
- Micro-USB charging ports with silicone caps for convenience and submersion (say, in the bathtub)
- Yummy, rumbly vibrations (I’ll discuss the motors in a later section)
Beyond the shared cores and guts, though, these bullets do vary quite a bit.
How these Je Joue bullet shapes feel in use
Je Joue Amour
The Je Joue Amour is aesthetically the showstopper of the three. It’s shaped like a heart! It comes in emerald green, a rarity in the sex toy world! And its tip flits and flickers, adding novelty to an already-sturdy package.
For starters, it can make me cum using just the flapping edge with the heart’s central cusp against my nipple. I’m small and sensitive, though. If the user wants more focused pressure, they have not one but two pointy tips along the Amour’s sides.
Je Joue Amour is... a dazzling choice for alternating between “wham-bam” and soft sensations.
That’s because the Je Joue Amour’s pillowy portion ramps down from its full, 1-inch diameter at the stem to a mere millimeter at the “leaf.” It doesn’t happen instantly; there’s about 0.6” of length wherein the silicone gradually reaches its apexes. And the part juuuust before it flattens into a sheet is where the more intense magic happens.
In short, the Je Joue Amour is a marvel inside and out — it’s a dazzling choice for alternating between “wham-bam” and soft sensations.
Je Joue Duet
The Je Joue Duet is a classic bullet shape with added squish and studding. Its textures serve two main purposes:
- It feels frickin’ fantastic when tip drilling, giving my vagina tactically placed resistance to grab onto.
- The dots are raised enough to give me multiple focus points in addition to the center crest.
There’s about 4.5” of total length, 1.3” of which is bendable silicone. The rest is rigid chassis with just a bit of supple skin. It’s within the realm of penis sizes and great for gentle insertion.
If you don’t like it rough, rest assured: the Je Joue Duet’s nodes only cover part of the surface. You can use the smooth side externally. For vaginal insertion, you can also position the plain side against the sensitive front wall and the bumps facing the back.
Duet is implicitly designed for insertion. Yet, even when it’s only on my clitoral glans, it leaves me feeling more satisfied than most rechargeable external vibrators...
The Je Joue Duet is implicitly designed for insertion. Yet, even when it’s only on my clitoral glans, it leaves me feeling more satisfied than most rechargeable external vibrators, thanks to its deeply thrumming hardware.
I mean, look at this thing — the little lump with knobs. It’s elegant and carries a fun-to-size ratio that’s hard to top.
Je Joue Vita
The Je Joue Vita’s shape is also multi-purpose for external use. The rounded spoon shape gives you options for:
- Focusing vibrations with the edge
- Diffusing it a little with the round convex surface
- Cupping the clitoral glans or nipple with the shallow concavity
- And, of course, you can use the side of the bullet
Of the three vibrators in this review, the Je Joue Vita is the most pliant, which you might or might not appreciate.
Of the three vibrators in this review, the Je Joue Vita is the most pliant, which you might or might not appreciate. I tried inserting it and thought, “meh.” Vibrations still transfer well through it, but the Vita’s not my favorite because the slender “neck” makes it super yielding.
I need more pressure; this vibrator feels the most intense head-on and perpendicular to the pubic bone. If you like a tender caress and a dainty package, you might like the different ways to play with the Je Joue Vita’s angles.
Controls, settings, and vibration quality
Je Joue’s vibrations are rumbly across the board, carrying a deep, distinct purr at lower speeds. Other terms I’ve used to describe the vibration quality include “bassy” and “fluttery.”
Most vibrators have one uniform tone, but not Je Joue’s. Fun Factory’s and Dame Products’ sound like a mildly wobbling dubstep bass, while Je Joue’s are more like a tapping thrum or (there it is again) a cat’s purr. The settings feel more conventional at higher frequencies, though.
Je Joue’s bullets almost meet the gold standard of the Tango X. How close is it? The former’s top speeds are about as strong as the Tango X’s 7th speed out of 8.
They all feel great, but subtle differences exist between the bullet generations’ strength and timbre.
Subjectively, I find the fifth setting on the Duet is comparable in strength to somewhere between the Classic’s 4th and 5th.
The Je Joue Classic bullet... can fit in some Vac-U-Lock and bullet cavities, with lube and effort.
Objectively, the Duet’s five speeds are lower-pitched than the Classic bullet’s:
- Duet: 50, 73, 85, 91, and 94 Hertz
- Classic 62, 88, 100, 111, and 117 Hertz
The Je Joue Classic bullet is also more compact at 3.75” long by 0.85” wide — it can fit in some Vac-U-Lock and bullet cavities, with lube and effort.
Their size difference is due to the thicker silicone coating on the Amour, Duet, and Vita. Even along the cylinder walls, my fingernails have slightly more to sink into.
Three buttons control 5 speeds and 7 patterns on the Je Joue bullets. One turns up the intensity, and the other turns it down, and the middle button cycles through the rhythms:
- Quickly escalating waves
- Slower waves up and down
- Escalation, pause, escalation
- Quick-ish thrumming
- Moderate thrumming
- Morse code dashes and pauses
Closing thoughts on the Je Joue bullets
Yeah, as far as standalone bullet vibrators go, Je Joue is the cream of the crop. They’re almost as strong as the We-Vibe Tango X while still maintaining a rich timbre — and come in a wider variety of fun shapes.
The vibrations feel super deep, leaving me satisfied even from external stimulation alone. That’s a rare feat for this penetration princess.
Je Joue has something sensational for just about every vulva owner who loves rumbly and targeted vibrations.
