#FunFindFriday: Rainbow Sex Toys

With Gay Pride Month in full effect, Toronto has been infused with color like I’ve never seen before. From banks to fast food chains, crosswalks to libraries, even the CN tower, everywhere I look, I see RAINBOWS!

Not that I’m complaining, I actually wish this was a regular occurrence rather than something reserved for one acceptance and love filled week of the year.  But it’s not. So, while they’re here I’m going to take in as many rainbow sightings as I can… which got me thinking about rainbow sex toys and the like, ’cause you know, that’s just how I do. #sexonthebrain

For those of you like me, needing a few more shades of fun in your life, here’s a little collection of all the rainbow sex toys I found floating around on the internets. There aren’t many, but the fact that some exist makes me happy beyond words.rainbowdildos

You Can Haz All The Rainbow Sex Toys

BS Atelier Pride Rainbow Dildos: $50 – $90

If there were ever a set of dildos that reminded me of Pink Floyds ‘Dark Side Of The Moon‘, the Pride Rainbow versions from BS Atelier would be first on the list.

Crafted by hand in Madrid, Spain, each of the dildos in the Pride Collection is unique, sporting sleek black shafts, curved bodies for g-spot stimulation, and rounded bases perfect for strap-on or anal play.   Like Kusama and Amor (dildos mentioned below), the stripes are defined with little to no bleeding, and contain all the shades you’d hope to find in a ‘traditional’ rainbow.

Whether you’re a fan the legendary rock band, or just someone who prefers a modern design, these sophisticated beauties are a must for anyone wanting a hint of a rainbow, without going overboard.

Newly added to their roster as part of the 2016 collection are the stunning ‘Alex’ dildo available in blue, grey, and pink, the ‘Bingo’ butt plug in blue or pink, and the ‘Bobo’ butt plug in a stunning true rainbow coloration (all pictured below).

I WANT THEM ALL.

Babes N Horny KusamaBabes ‘N Horny Kusama: £80

Okay, so it’s not your typical red, orange, yellow, green, blue etc rainbow, but it’s close, and that’s good enough for me.

Like the Amor (mentioned below), Kusamas hand-poured stripes stand apart, bright and bold, with no bleeding or fading into the next. It’s playful, stunning, and certainly eye catching.

As for the specifics, the silicone is pliant with a decent amount of squish and give, has a lovely matte texture that’s smooth to the touch, and boasts a flared base for strap-on or anal use. Oh, and did I mention it’s uber comfortable and easy to use? ‘Cause it is.

Curious? Check my Kusama review.


Unitorn Rainbow Horn DildosRainbow Unicorn Horn: $43 – $120

According to legend, Unicorns are a perfect combination of ‘male’ and ‘female’ energies, rich in the symbolism of opposites, reflecting an archetypal primal energy at play in our own lives.

Okay, I’ll admit that sounds a little hokey, but that doesn’t mean these stunning rainbow unicorn horn dildos from Split Peaches wouldn’t be a worthy addition to anyone’s collection, regardless of gender.

rainbow dildo rivetorUnlike the previous two dildos, you’re not going to find straight cut edges or a defined rainbow – instead what you’ll get is a lovely subtle flow from one color to the next, with a gradual fading. Considering each of these beauties is hand poured in the U.S. it’s only to be expected, and part of what makes them so unique.

Of course rainbow offerings aren’t limited to unicorn horns; inspired by the steaming hot riveted steel boiler plates found in the industrial furnace, their newest edition, ‘The Rivetor‘  (pictured left), is the first in a line of steampunk sex toys.

The curved shaft and studded head provide serious g-spot stimulation, while the flared base makes it excellent for anal play or use in a harness. My suggestion, rather than thrusting, try twirling it while inserted… with enough lube I’m sure the texturing would feel amazing.


RaPride dildo rainbowinbow Colour Pleasures & Official Pride Dildo $40 – $50

If you’re looking for a rainbow that’s a little more ‘realistic’ you’ll definitely want to check out the new Color Pleasures rainbow dildo by NS Novelties. It’s truly a stunner!

Since 2011 the Fun Factory Rainbow Amor (mentioned last in this post) has been my ultimate favorite rainbow dildo for a very specific reason: the colouring found on the shaft is clean cut, with precise definition, offering no bleeding from one shade to the next.

Rainbow Sex ToysBasically, it makes the perfectionist in me ridiculously happy.  Unfortunately the Amor is no more – as in, it’s no longer being manufactured – leaving this beauty to take it’s place in my heart.

Granted the design is completely different from the Amor, but that doesn’t mean it’s not as good; the medical grade silicone is velvety soft to the touch yet firm enough for effortless penetration, it’s easy to care for and clean, has a suction cup base so you can use it on any surface, and for those that like options – it comes in large and small.

Or, for those that prefer something without balls… there’s the official ‘Pride dildo’ (pictured above right).


Rainbow Butt Plugs: $33 – $44

ttamagerainbowplugIf butt plugs are more your thing, along with glass, look no further than the handmade creations found on the Ttamage Etsy store.

Although the colors aren’t as bright and predominant as the previous dildo, the delicate rainbow swirl is just breathtaking, and being crafted by hand, I’m pretty sure each plug is fairly unique.

The plugs come in small and large, are crafted from solid Pyrex glass (making them pretty damn sturdy), moderately sized where girth is considered, and have bases so they’re safe for use anally.

Rainbows in my ass? Yes please!

Lix Vibrating Tongue RingRainbow Vibrating Tongue Ring: $27

If insertables aren’t quite your thing, but you enjoy oral, whether giving or receiving… and have your tongue pierced (does anyone still do that?), this rainbow colored vibrating tongue ring might just be right up your alley.

I know some of you are looking at it and probably thinking “ouch, those pokey things look scary“, but I promise you they’re not; I had a pink one years ago (yes, I had my tongue pierced) and never had any issues. Instead of being made of hard plastic, the little nubs are a glossy silicone that’s firm but supple and slightly stretchy. To be honest, pulling on them is kind of addictive, so here’s your fair warning; if you pull hard enough they will come off. Basically, don’t pick.

Unfortunately getting it in place can be a little tricky since you’ll have to turn it on, then slide it in your tongue, then screw on the bottom ball, all while your tongue is jiggling like a bowl of jelly. Of course you could insert it when it’s not vibrating, but turning it on once it’s in your mouth is actually harder. Who knew?

Regardless, it’s way better than this vibrating tongue ring, or this stupid thing.


Tantus Asteroid, Comet, & MeteoriteTantus Comet: $37 – $67

With popping tones of lime green, fluorescent orange, and opaque fuschia, Comet, Asteroid, and Meteorite look like the start of a rainbow, one that forgot what followed, but in the most perfect of ways.

Tantus AsteroidUnlike the clean cut lines found on Kusama and Amor, Tantus’ versions are much less dramatic, with the trio of shades gently fading into each other to create a much softer effect. They’re simple, and that’s part of their charm.

Tantus MeteoriteLike all of my fave Tantus toys they’re totally body safe, won’t absorb bodily fluids, lube or bacteria, can be fully sterilized when it comes to cleaning, and will last a lifetime with a minimum amount of care (saving you money in the long run).

If minimalism is your thing, you need one of these in your life. Fuck it, you need all three!

Check my review of the Tantus Meteorite… here’s a spoiler; there was absolutely no prepping involved, and it was glorious.


The Rainbow Amor Dildo: $65

*sadly rainbow amor is no  longer available.

This stunning little number has been a favorite of mine since I laid eyes on it back in 2011. I coveted it, begged for it, almost going so far as to offer up my first born just to get the chance to review it (I hoard sex toys, what can I say). Fortunately things didn’t get that extreme, and before I knew it I had it in my hot little hands.

From start to finish this dildo is everything I could ask for; there’s no bleeding of shades from one to the next, it’s crafted from body safe silicone (Fun Factory, thank you for making this!), it’s neither too big nor too small, AND it has every color perfectly distributed just like a real rainbow should.

FYI, it’s one of the only toys that’s been in my bedside drawer 3 years straight. For someone that literally owns bins of sex toys, that counts for something.

Here’s my review of the rainbow amor dildo, just in case you had any questions.

Miscellaneous Rainbow Goodness!

Of course dildos, butt plugs, and tongue rings aren’t the only rainbow clad goodies available…

For those with a Unicorn fetish, the rainbow horn dildos by Split Peaches aren’t your only option. If you really want to commit, take it all the way and snag yourself a rainbow unicorn mask (pictured below). There’s a few to choose from, it’s just a matter of whether you want to go legit hardcore unicorn or the adorable unicorn route. And, if you’re gonna go that far you might as well buy a rainbow wig + tail set and call it a day. Though personally, I’d prefer a rainbow cat tail and some fluffy rainbow ears to match.

If burlesque, playing dress up with rainbows, role playing, or running around half naked is more your thing, there’s tons of fun stuff like rainbow pasties, rainbow wigs, sparkly rainbow rhinestone pasties, rainbow tutu’s, stockings, a one piece rainbow body suit, and cock socks to search through. Or, if you’re the creative type why not try your hand at some body art with a rainbow liquid latex paint kit (always make sure there’s no latex allergies before using). Regardless of what you’re specifically looking for I’m pretty sure you can find it if you know where to look.

#FunFindFriday: Fun Factory Stronic Eins

I’ve been a fan of Fun Factory ever since I laid eyes on them 8 years ago, with the bright and bold color choices drawing me in like moth to flame. Yes, I’m just that easily distracted superficial.

For those not in the know, Fun Factory was one of the first pleasure object manufacturers to branch into the mainstream market offering quality goods in discreet packaging, with an exceptional amount of attention paid to advanced technology and creating toys that were not only playful, but also somewhat questionable… especially considering they were meant to stuffed in your vag or butt (anal beads in the shape of a caterpillar and a friendly little ghost vibrator for the win?).

Suffice to say, they’ve gone and done it again, minus the quirky choice in designs I’ve come to love; set for release Janurary 2013 Fun Factory designed 3 sleek and sophisticated new additions with the ability to ‘pulse’, creating a sensation similar to the thrusting felt during intercourse. According to the company the products are “unlike the ‘Sex and the City’ rotating and vibrating rabbits everyone knows, Pulsators silently rock back and forth using a complex weighted device instead of a motor.

fun factory stronic eins

Dirk Bauer, founder and managing director in Germany, had this to say about their newest inventions;

Experience has shown that strong and firm impulses — similar to thrusts — allow people to enjoy sex in a more intense way than just vibration” adding “After 18 months spent developing this product, we are ready to bring to the market a sensational new kind of toy, a Pulsator, which simulates the natural movements of lovemaking

Well that certainly sounds interesting to say the least!

As for specifics you’re looking at 9″ inches in total length, with 5″ of that being insertable. As with many other dual vibes there is an extension added for clitoral stimulation. Regarding the colors shoppers can look forward to hot pink and deep violet. Added to the current features are 10 stimulation rhythms, a fully waterproof body, key lock for silence during traveling, and a 100% medical grade silicone shaft that’s totally body safe.

Now whether or not this new trend will take off as expected remains to be seen, but as someone who uses sex toys on a near daily basis, feasting on new additions like a chocolate addict to cake, I honestly cannot wait to see these bad boys in action.

For more info feel free to check out the Stronic Eins page on the Fun Factory website.

So I guess the question now is, whos ass do I have to kiss to get one of my own?

Review: Fun Factory DeLight

Fun Factory Delight

snaking curves

When I first saw the Fun Factory DeLight back in 2008 it was instant love.  The curves. The words ‘medical grade silicone’.  The make-shift handle and easily accessible buttons. The variety of vibration settings, rechargeability, splash-proofness and discreet design. Not to mention the fact that it was made by one of my all time fave companies – Fun Factory (which is synonymous with quality). Everything about it screamed POTENTIALLY AMAZING G-SPOT STIMULATION… and yes, I just had to have it.

For as much as I lusted after it, dreaming of the day it would grace my vajayay with its presence, it always seemed to elude me. No matter how hard I worked, begged or pleaded, I just couldn’t seem to get my hands on it. I even saved up for it a few times over, only to find the retailer in question out of stock each time I was ready to buy (partially my fault for wanting a specific color).  And now, years later, when I’ve made peace with the fact that it would forever be ‘the one that got away‘, it falls into my lap with a simple “may I please have for a review“. Funny how life works sometimes. Fun Wares, my lady bits are very thankful.

professional packaging

Packaging

Like all the products Fun Factory makes the packaging is professional, discreet, playful, quality and luxurious.  There’s nothing on it that’s tacky, rude or inappropriate, no naked ladies or gents and definitely nothing that would make you cringe. Instead of the typical and by that I mean cheap plastic clam shell design most intimate accessories come packed in, Fun Factory once again opted to use a sturdy box with a peek-a-boo window, silver and red shades, along with all the benefits and features laid out in a way that’s easy to find, attractive and simple to understand. Basically put, there’s no guess work with this company, what you see is what you get.

The Good

Good things come in oddly shaped, well designed and easy to maneuver packages. At least that’s how I see it with DeLight. Sure, it has a few little kinks that it could stand to have worked out, but for the most part, it’s got everything I want in a vibe and more.

  • It’s discreet,  very discreet. I mean look at it, there is no way you’d think that was a vibrator. Sure, it would likely draw attention due to the amazing colors and strange shape, but for the most part anyone that found it would be totally clueless to the fact you stuffed it in your whoo-ha. Yes, I did just call your vagina a ‘whoo-ha”.  Sue me.
  • It’s crafted out of 2 body safe materials, that together, lend themselves well to the design, making maneuvering the product easy, comfortable and surprisingly ergonomic – one is a smooth and supple, matte, phthalate and latex free silicone that’s totally body safe, hypoallergenic and hygienic (the fucshia colored insertable g-spot stimulator), the other,  a highly polished and hard ABS plastic that’s also non-porous, smooth, glossy and firm (the shiny black sides).  .
  • While I know this will be a downside for the ‘size queens’ reading, it’s much smaller than I imagined coming in at only 6″ in total length (that’s not measuring the whole length since it curves, but instead from top to bottom), with only 4″ being insertable. On that note, 4″ inches, and properly curved ones at that, are more than enough to hit the spot.  Having said that, it’s not meant for deep penetration or thrusting, instead being specifically designed for g-spot stimulation.  Sure, some will likely have to adjust, wiggle, rock or apply pressure to suit their body and personal needs, but for the most part it targets the area with an exceptionally high level of precision I’ve only experienced with a handful of products.
  • Although it’s not hitachi, leaf, or We-Vibe Touch strong, it still packs a bit of a punch, especially when fully charged. More than that, the vibrations can be felt through the entire body of the product. Sure, they tend to diminish the further you get from the area the motor is located, but for the most part you’re able to easily stimulate the entire vulva… we’re talking the clit, labia (big and small), vaginal opening, g-spot, everything! Quite a nice feature for those that like all over sensations.
  • It’s whisper quiet. Even on the highest setting. ‘Nuff said.
  • Maybe it was the way it was pictured online, or the way my silly brain works, but for some reason I never assumed any part of it was fully silicone, instead guessing a portion was coated in it. For many of you this won’t seem like a point worth mentioning, but where sex toys are concerned it makes a big difference.  Not only does it make the insertable end smooth and supple, slightly textured and velvety to the touch, it’s also highly flexible allowing it to move, shift and bend with you while also making insertion very comfortable. Amazing!
  • Okay, so this might not really be a serious selling point, but if you’re sick of the traditional pink, black, purples and weirdly colored pinky purples, DeLight comes in 6 different variations; baby rose/rose, india red/violet, white/orange, violet/violet, and the one I waited forever for blackberry/black. With all those options there’s definitely something for everyone. Unless you like green or blue, then you’re shit outta luck.
  • Since we all know how much I hate using batteries the fact that it’s rechargeable should come as no surprise. Not only does it save you money in the long run, along with the planet, it also gives you a much longer vibration life… without the fear of it dying before you reach a big “O”.
  • DeLight is designed with ease of use in mind; the way the curves fit the body, with the handle upright and buttons directly under the thumb (no matter what you’re doing or how you’re using it), operating it in the moment is a piece of cake… especially since your not fiddling around trying to find buttons that you can’t see or a dial that’s way out of reach. Long story short: it’s ergonomic in a way many other vibrators aren’t.
  • Last but not least, it’s fucking stunning! Well in my opinion anyways. Oh, and let me also ad that pretty much every time I pick it up or look at it, I think of this, Deee-groovy! Deee-gorgeous!! Which is pretty kick ass in it’s own way.

Operating Instructions

When it comes to sex toys one of my biggest complaints is the fact that so many of them seem to require a degree of sorts to figure out how to operate them, and truthfully, I’m getting tired of it. I want my toys to be simple, easy to manipulate, and just as easy to figure out. If I get something and have to read an instruction manual, forget it. I just can’t be bothered. Fortunately most Fun Factory toys are pretty to the point, having minimal buttons and placing them in areas that are easily accessible when in the moment.

simple controls

DeLight is no exception, located on the top of the ‘handle’ are a “+” symbol, “-” symbol and the Fun Factory logo. To turn it on simply hold down the “+” button for 3 seconds and it quickly powers on, lighting up the logo and background with a red glow. To switch through the settings either press the “+” or “-” symbols, the “+” will increase the vibration and the “-” will lesson it, once on the highest setting just press the “+” button once more and it will jump through the various settings, to turn it off simply hold down the “-” button for 3 seconds and it should power down rather quickly.

For easy as it is to master there is one drawback, if you jump past the setting you like you have to cycle through them all over again since the “-” button doesn’t go backwards, instead jumping back to the steady vibration rather than a pattern.

As for the settings, you’ve got 5 to choose from including everything from pulsations, escalations, a random pulse/roller coaster, and a steady vibe. No matter what you’re looking for this quirky toy likely has it.

When it comes to recharging, place the circular charger over the small silver ‘dots’ (located on the back, just under the tip of the handle) and once magnetically connected, the charger will glow red.  Like the Yooo (another Fun Factory product), the charger will repel the connection unless it’s lined up correctly. With that in mind, make sure you place it on a flat surface where it won’t be disturbed – the connection tends to slip out of place, stopping the charge in the process (if at any time the glowing stops you’ll want to check for a disconnection – if it’s not disconnected, it’s stopped because it’s fully charged).

magnetic charger

The Bad

When it comes to things I don’t like about DeLight there are 4, though they aren’t that big of a deal – just things I think should be included so everyone is in the know:

  • The silicone end collects lint… but since almost every silicone toy does that, I’m not going to hold it against the DeLight specifically. I still hate that it does that though.
  • Depending on whether your g-spot sits shallow in the vaginal canal (closer to the opening) or a little farther back, the g-spot curve may or may not be right for you. If it’s shallow, you should be good. Otherwise, I’d suggest something like the G-Ki since trying to hit it may prove awkward.
  • Before I go on I just want to say that this isn’t necessarily an issue with the product, or something I don’t specifically dislike, though it is something I think would make it a whole bunch better: the upper portion of the product (i.e. the portion that touches your clitoris when tilted forward) doesn’t have an area that vibrates. Yes, you can feel the vibrations through the entire body of the vibe when it’s turned on, but for the most part they aren’t as strong as in the tip where the vibe is located. It might just be my opinion, but I personally think the addition of another vibrating area (where the vibrations were concentrated) would make the DeLight one hell of a dual stimulator. Sure it might mean more buttons, and maybe a bit of a thicker body, but if it means a better orgasm, I can deal with that.
  • The ‘extra bump’ designed to stimulate the clitoris is just stupid. Every friend I asked said there’s no way it would hit the area since theirs didn’t sit that low, if anything it would work better as a point of reference to know how deep the vibe is inserted. Survey says, “rename that portion”.

delight

Care & Cleaning

You can easily clean it with a toy wipe or by washing with antibacterial soap and warm water. While it is splash-proof I wouldn’t suggest fully submerging it as there’s a chance you’d kill it. I’d also suggest sticking with a good water based lube since a silicone version would likely ruin it over time.

Final Verdict

Even though 4 years has gone by since I first spied it (which is a long time in sex toy years), my much anticipated DeLight hasn’t let me down, remaining innovative, luxurious and high tech, rather than outdated or old. To be honest, I think it was far ahead of its time, and only now other companies are starting to catch up.

Review: Rainbow Amor Dildo

Rainbow Dildo ReviewWhen I first saw this stunning rainbow dildo online I was seriously floored.  Whether that was because it was the very first rainbow colored intimate accessory I’d ever seen (that actually looked good and was a legit rainbow), or because it was an exact replica of my fave Fun Factory dildo is anyone’s guess. All I know is the moment I saw it, I had to have it. Like, in my toy box as of yesterday had to have it.

Thanks to the wonderful folks at Babeland  this pretty little dildo was in my hands in less than a week, shipped discreetly no less, and was definitely something worth waiting for.

*The reason it looks exactly like my fave dildo is because it was made by the same manufacturer, Fun Factory, with the rainbow version being specifically made for Babeland (in limited numbers) – which is why it’s the only place you can currently get it.

Packaging

This amazing and beautifully colored dildo comes packaged in the ‘standard’ Fun Factory easily recycled box, with nothing on it that’s rude offensive, inappropriate or tacky. A see-through window allows you to view the product, while the outer external box is silver and red, displays a basic diagram of the product with it’s benefits and features on one side and a written description listed in 4 languages on the opposite. It’s simple, easy to understand and with the exception of the words ‘dildo’ and ‘g-spot’ has nothing sexually explicit on it.

Rainbow Dildo

No bleeding of colours

The Goods

While there are many reasons to love it – it’s crafted from 100% medical grade silicone, shaped to be comfortable, and has a flared base for various uses – the main one is obviously the rainbow coloring. Fortunately in person it’s just as fantastic as the pictures online show, being bright, bold, impressive and exceptionally well delivered; each color is clearly defined with no ‘bleeding’ or gradient flow into the next (as pictured left).

As for the texture, the high quality silicone is very smooth, has a matte finish, is somewhat squishy and offers a bit of give while also maintaining a firmness that’s flexible and exceptionally comfortable. The base is likewise flexible but firm, allowing it to be compatible with most strap-on harnesses or used anally without the possibility of being lost inside you. While it does have a slight bit of drag on the skin it’s not something a little bit of good water based lube wouldn’t fix.

*even though I was afraid of being disappointed I inflicted the ‘flame test’, to which it thankfully passed. High quality silicone for the win!

Design wise it’s semi realistic and resembles a smoothed-out erect penis (think of the posterize effect in photoshop). The rounded and slightly pointed tip makes insertion easy and the short shaft with a gentle curve provides a small amount of g-spot stimulation during thrusting. While the curve isn’t much to write home about, it’s far better than a straight design that offers little to no contact with the g-spot. Regarding the stats you’re looking a length of 5 1/2 inches and a girth of around 5 inches (by my own measurements) and a width of 1 1/2 inches, that in mind, I think anyone could use it and not be intimidated or overwhelmed. If g-spot stimulation or thrusting isn’t quite your thing, instead preferring the ‘fullness’ dildo’s provide, this fit the bill nicely.

*Just keep in mind that although extremely amazing, you may need something else – be it a clitoral vibe, fingers or the tongue of a partner to help you reach a climax, especially when you take into consideration that over 70% of women require clitoral stimulation to achieve an orgasm. If that sounds like you, don’t worry, you’re clearly not alone.

Care And Cleaning

Because the Rainbow Amor Dildo is made of a high quality silicone it can be easily cleaned using soap, water and a good rinsing.  As for lubes I’d only suggest a good water based lube, and if you have issues with reoccurring yeast infections, one that’s sugar and/or glycerin free would be a good idea.

*Since it’s made of medical grade silicone it won’t absorb bodily fluids, lube or bacteria and therefore doesn’t require the heavy cleaning other product my need.

Marbled Amor (my original love) vs Rainbow Amor (my new love)

The Bad

Fortunately there really isn’t much for me to complain about, sure the drag on the skin is a little annoying (lube fixes the problem nicely) and it kind of attracts lint (not nearly as bad as many others), but that’s really the only issues I found. Both of which really aren’t that big of a deal.

Final Verdict

I don’t really know what I can write here that I haven’t already said. From the moment I got it I loved it and having now ‘sampled the goods’ I find myself loving it even more,  especially since it has everything – and I do mean everything – I look for: it’s made of high quality silicone, is easy to insert (with the help of a little lube), is the perfect length and girth for my body, is seamless, can be used with a harness, has a bit of give making it exceptionally comfortable, is easy to care for and clean, and best of all…comes in a rainbow!!

If you’re looking for a fantastic, body safe dildo that’s quite possibly one of the only rainbow versions on the market, look no further, you’ve hit the motherload! If you’d prefer the same high quality product, minus the rainbow (that’s just crazy talk!!), the dildo also comes in a pink, orange or black version, or the larger Magnum with a total length of 7 inches. No matter what you decide I’m pretty sure you’ll be just as impressed as I am with mine.

Review: Fun Factory ~ Yooo


fun factory yoooAfter reviewing products for over 4 years I’d like to think that I have a pretty good idea of what my likes and dislikes are. That I can look at a product, read the materials, how it works and very quickly determine if it’s quality or not. More importantly, that when I see a product I’ll almost instantly know if it’s for me.

For the most part my instincts are pretty good and have helped me to skip the crappy intimate accessories for ones that are often much more favorable, not to mention far more deserving of the title “sexual wellness product”.

Of course there are other times when my radar goes awry and I’m stuck clutching something I’m not only perplexed by, but also disappointed with, seriously wondering why I chose it in the first place. Such was the case with the Fun Factory Yooo, a product I specifically asked the lovely folks at Eden Fantasys for, which they generously obliged.

The Goods

While there are a few issues I have with the Yooo, there are of course a few things it does have going for it;

First, it’s crafted out of high quality silicone that’s non toxic, hypo allergenic, hygienic, latex and phthalate free, odorless, easy to clean and care for, while also being velvety smooth to touch. Unlike other silicones it doesn’t really collect lint (a pet peeve of mine), has some give and squish to it, and although there is a slight bit of drag, it’s not much to worry about.

Secondly it’s very, very discreet. Whether you live in a dorm, have a roommate, share space with nosy siblings or are simply worried that someone may come across it, you should be fine; there’s a very likely chance they’d either think it was a kids toy, some weird addition for your computer or possibly something for the bath instead of a sexual wellness product.

Third, it’s rechargeable. I know for some of you that isn’t really an issue but after losing many products during my early days to the evil corrosion of batteries, along with the amount of money I’ve spent on them, I had to learn the hard way why having products that are rechargeable is not only smarter, but saves you quite a bit of money in the long run.

Fourth, if you like to bring toys into the tub, or if you have to due to your living arrangements, the fact that it’s 100% waterproof may be a very big selling point. While I’m not necessarily one for bath time fun, I did find the lowest setting very relaxing during my bath.

Fifth, the packaging is discreet, professional, rather hi tech looking and comes complete with 4 different languages to explain the product. There is nothing on it that’s rude, inappropriate, embarrassing or something that would cause you to shy away. Sure the write up is a little tacky (the mention of the ‘balls’ is done far too often lol), but for the most part it’s nothing to worry about.

Last but definitely not least – it’s damn near whisper silent. Sure it’s a vibrator and therefor does make some noise, but it’s nothing that would be heard when muffled under the sheets, and certainly wouldn’t be heard through a door or within a shower or running bath.

*I actually turned it on and tossed it on the chair in the living room while my fiance was playing video games just to see how long it took before he heard it and asked what the hell it was. Let’s just say the cats were far more curious and noticed way before he did.

Specs

Aside from many benefits and features found with the Yooo, there are of course other aspects like size, maintenance and operation that should be addressed.

While the majority of the product is made of high grade silicone the front of the ball (where the buttons are located) is made of a body safe ABS plastic that makes it rather firm with no squish or give. It doesn’t really make much difference when it comes to using the product, but since it’s not 100% silicone I felt it was worth mentioning.

In regard to the size and shape of the product you’re basically looking at 3 spheres, or bubbles if you will. The middle one houses the buttons, provides an easy way to hold the product, while also giving you the surface area to magnetically connect and charge your Yooo. The two smaller balls are slightly different, with one measuring 1.75″ across and the other measuring 1.5″, each of which hold their own separate motor. It’s these separate motors that offer different methods of stimulation and allow you to explore and play until you find a position that works for you and your body.

*for those of you wondering, it gets its name from the three different ‘O’ shaped parts that make up the product.

Specs: total length 3 3/4″, girth at largest measures 6 1/2″, width at its widest measures 2″.

As for operating the product, there are only 3 buttons to worry about; a (+) plus, (-) minus and flower shaped ‘turbo boost’. To turn it on simply press down on the (+) button for 2 seconds and it begins to vibrate at a low rumble, press again and you go to the next speed and so on. Once you’ve reached the highest basic speed holding down the (+) button will jump the vibrations over to an escalation, with the dial of the buttons glowing in sync with the vibration pattern. Hitting the (+) button again will take it to the next pattern and so forth. In total you’ve got 4 patterns to run through. If the (-) button is pressed at any time during the patterns the vibrations go back to the highest setting before you hit the patterns. Find it confusing? Yeah, so did I the first couple times around. Having said that there is most definitely a learning curve. To turn it off simply press down on the (-) button which will lower the speeds, tap it once more and it turns off.

*If at any time you want to have a surge of power just press down on the ‘turbo button’ and the Yooo will vibrate at a hand numbing speed. No joke. My whole hand went numb in no time.

When it comes to recharging place the circular charger over the Fun Factory logo (located in the center of the buttons) and once magnetically connected, the charger will glow red.  If at any time the glowing stops you may want to check for a disconnection.

As for care and cleaning, since it’s water proof and made of silicone you can simply wash it with mild antibacterial soap and water, making sure to rinse it well.

When it comes to lubricants I’d only suggest a good water one as a silicone would likely ruin it over time.

In regard to ways of using it there are 3 options that I see, with the possibility of 4 if you can manage it. The first is for a nice, relaxing massage since the Yooo hugs curves in the neck and shoulders rather comfortably.  The second is during foreplay to tease and taunt your partner into arousal, whether it’s tracing over their nipples, inner thigh, forearms or feet. Next is clitoral stimulation and the last, which again is an option only if your capable of it – gently inserting one of the balls vaginally while the other stimulates the clitoris. It won’t work for everyone, but for those that it does – enjoy!

*just keep in mind this isn’t meant for anal insertion.

The Bad

The first issue I had with the product was in regard to the charger; because the product connects via a magnet there were many times that I left the room only to come back and find it disconnected. Annoying, frustrating and disappointing are definitely a few words that come to mind.

Next up are the vibrations – while some may be very impressed with them I unfortunately wasn’t. That’s not to say it isn’t relatively powerful or that the sensations aren’t enjoyable, it’s just that the vibration itself is very rumbly, buzzy and feels like it’s sitting on the surface, rather than being a deep, heavy and completely arousing vibe. Unfortunately it seemed like the only way I could reach orgasm was by continually hitting the turbo button. Keep in mind that this is just me and my body is likely different from yours. What works for some doesn’t always work for others, a point that’s clearly made with my experience.

On that note, while it does have two separate motors I couldn’t feel the difference between them like I did with the Lelo Ina. Yes, Ina is a different product all together, but if you can’t differentiate between the sensations what was the point of doing it in the first place?

Aside from that the buttons are rather hard to press and require a bit of force. Maybe it was just mine, maybe it was because it was new, either way it was slightly frustrating especially in the heat of the moment when hands are a tad lubed.

Finally, the shape itself leaves much to be desired as it doesn’t offer much by way of overall stimulation, makes targeting one area rather difficult, and for me didn’t feel the most comfortable. Not that it hurt, because it didn’t, it just felt awkward and weird.

Final Verdict

If you’re looking for a high end product that’s very unique in design and is therefor discreet, while also being quiet, rechargeable, powerful and something you can take in the  shower or bath, the Fun Factory Yooo
might just be for you. If on the other hand you’re specifically looking for a great clitoral stimulator, one that targets the area, has a deep and penetrating vibration, while also offering variable patterns and speeds, you might want to look at something like the Form 2, Insignia Alia or the We-Vibe Touch.

Don’t get me wrong, my love for Fun Factory as a company still remains and the product itself definitely well made, easy to use and high quality, it just sadly didn’t do it for me. I guess sometimes the old says can ring true – stick with what you know. From now on, that’s what I’ll be doing.
