Review: Fun Factory Share XL

It was not long after I reviewed the Fun Factory Share that Fun Factory released the next in the Share line: the Fun Factory Share XL. When I first laid eyes on it I knew I would have to have it. Now, nearly two years later, I finally get to share01 with you the excellence that is the Share XL.

The Share XL is a double-ended dildo designed to be used like a strap-on, only it doesn’t need a harness to work. There are quite a few other products designed to do the same thing, but this is by far my favorite. It is shaped as all of the Share line–which, in addition to the XL and original also includes the XS–each has a dildo02 end connected to a curved internal bulb (the same size and shape on all three) via a very curved connection. This is one of my favorite features: the curved connection and therefore way it sits. The deep curve enables the base of the dildo to sit against the mons and in front of the clit, rather than sticking out at an angle from the vaginal opening area. This is important because it gives so much better control and leverage.

However, the curved connection is also the source of the biggest potential complaint of the Share XL, the floppyness. Because of the extreme swoop down from the base of the dildo and the weight of the dildo, especially on the XL, the dildo can have a tendency to This isn’t as much of a problem for me, luckily, due to my excess of thigh flesh that is somehow able to keep the dildo in place, but for you skinnier folk out there it would be highly irritating. Of course, it can be slipped into a harness03, as long as the harness either does not have fabric behind the o-ring or has removable fabric there, easily to alleviate that problem. While using it in a harness does take away slightly from the convenience of the “harnessless strap on” it is so much easier to use and wield.

I really love the bulb on this. It’s curved to give the wearer some nice g-spot stimulation with each thrust and jostle of the hips, plus it’s big enough for just about anyone to hold on to, since the smaller the object inserted the more the PC muscles have to work to keep it from falling out04. There is a ridge around the bulb just like on the dildo to make it match, which is awfully cute, though I haven’t really felt the ridge on the bulb too much.

Fun Factory Share XL

The ridges on the dildo, however, are so amazingly lovely. They remind me a lot of the Fun Factory Wave which I love extremely much. They’re thick and the baby bear05 of dildo ridges: not too pronounced, not too small. They add a little more girth to the already good sized dildo, plus they look pretty too. Without the ridges the Share XL would be almost exactly the same size as the original Share.

Unfortunately I haven’t been able to truly try this out on another human yet. Onyx is too scared of the size of it despite my promises of going slow. Actually, I got him to agree to it one night but the other toy ended up using as a warm-up was too good that we didn’t get around to the Share XL. Even though I haven’t tried it out on someone else I have tried it on me multiple ways: fucking myself with the dildo end; fucking the Flip Hole with the dildo and the bulb end inserted in me; and using it like a kegel exerciser by inserting the bulb end, standing, and gripping and releasing to keep it inside. All three tasks are win.

Review: Fun Factory Smartballs Teneo Uno and Duo

Kegel Exercisers are wonderful things, they basically help you exercise the muscles of the pelvic floor without a lot of conscious effort on your part, you just need to remember to wear them.

Kegel exercises can be done in numerous ways with various different implements, not just balls, but the best well-known vaginal balls are Ben Wa Balls, basically a ball with another ball-shaped weight inside of it that wiggle around during wear and stimulate your pelvic floor muscles. They are best to be done every day for fastest results, just like any other kind of exercises.

The awesome thing about balls like these is that you don’t really have to do anything in order to be exercising your pelvic floor muscles except move. They are a wonderful way to spruce up even the most boring menial tasks! The weight in the center vibrates slightly as you move around giving you immediate stimulation and arousal while working your kegels.

In the short-term it will increase your arousal level and can be especially wonderful to use in a D/s setting. In the long-term the benefits of strengthening your pelvic floor are both practical as well as sexual. It improves urinary and bowel control and can also increase control over ejaculation for both males and females. Specifically for females they increase tightness of the vagina, can improve vaginal control, and can increase sexual arousal/desire. For males they can diminish premature ejaculation, encourage multiple orgasms (especially multiples without ejaculation), and result in a stronger erection.

Smartballs are not made for males, however, as they should never ever be used anally. For anal kegel exercisors check out the Aneros Peridise.

Original Smartballs vs. Smartballs Teneo Uno and Duo

Fun Factory took the basic design of Ben Wa Balls and came up with their Original Smartballs (image), two slightly oblong balls attached together with an easy removal cord which could be worn all day if you so choose.

The Smartballs Teneo line is basically Smartballs 2.0. Unlike the Original Fun Factory Smartballs the Teneo line of Smartballs are made of silicone, not Fun Factory‘s own creation of Elastomed. Also, instead of an oval-y shaped ball with indented slits around the sides in a different color like the original Smartballs the Teneo Uno and Duo have a bit more texture to their design, as you can see. They still have the inlayed slits, but have a ribbon of silicone moving around them for even more feeling when they’re up inside you.

Probably my favorite difference between Smartballs 1.0 and Teneo is the finger groove on the bottom of each ball which makes insertion much easier. Teneo was also improved by giving the wearer a choice between one ball or two, making it easier for beginners or those of us with shorter vaginal canals to work on our muscles using a more comfortable singular ball.

Finally, the retrieval cord on the Teneo line is also made of silicone and is the same color as the rest of the ball, unlike on the Smartballs 1.0 which was of an unknown material (not silicone), slightly tacky, and white regardless of the ball colors.

Smartballs vs. Other Vaginal Balls

Other than Fun Factory’s versions I have also tried the LELO Luna Beads and Ophoria K-Balls (review coming soon), both of which have balls which are closer to perfectly round than the ones found on any of the versions of Smartballs, but neither have a completely silicone cord or the extremely handy finger groove.

While the LELO Luna Beads do have the option between using one ball or two and also varying ball weights the balls are made of ABS plastic rather than silicone and the retrieval cord is made of a fiber which can get stiff after encountering fluid, which is highly annoying.

The Ophoria K-balls are made of silicone, but are much more similar to the Smartballs 1.0 than the Teneo line.

There are many other types of vaginal balls and other kegel exercisers out there as well, but these are the only ones I have experienced personally.

So… Are they worth it?

I think the Teneo Uno specifically is my favorite of all the vaginal balls I have encountered. The Duo is wonderful as well, but I haven’t made up my mind between it and the K-balls. Maybe by the time I review the K-balls I’ll have a better idea. They are definitely close to the top if not the very top, so I definitely recommend them.

A big thank you to Good Vibrations for providing me with Smartballs Teneo Kegel Sex Toy!

Review: Fun Factory Wave

Fun Factory Wave

The second I saw the Fun Factory Wave I fell in love. It comes in purple and turquoise01, both colors are gorgeous and rich in true Fun Factory fashion. I absolutely love Fun Factory toys not just because they come in a wide variety of colors and extremely unique shapes but also because they only use body-safe materials.

Like most other Fun Factory toys the Wave is made out of 100% medical-grade silicone. It is glossy and smooth, so with a dab of lube02 it is easy to insert and thrust with. It is fairly hard silicone as well, not as hard as glass or metal obviously, but more firm than other silicone toys I have experienced (the Fun Factory Curve, for example is softer than Wave).

Silicone is non-porous, phthalate-free, hypoallergenic, super easy to clean and sterilize-able so it can be shared between partners (fluid-bonded or not) without having to worry about bacteria getting caught in it03 or anything like that. The easiest way to sterilize silicone is just to pop it in the dishwasher on the top rack with no soap, you can also boil it for 10 minutes in a large pot, or wipe it down with a 10% bleach solution. To clean, simply wash with soap and water. Since this is a dildo without any mechanical or buzzy vibrating parts it can be completely submerged without the risk of damage.

Fun Factory Wave

Although this is not my second Fun Factory dildo this is the second I’ve owned with this particular base, the first being Bandito. The base is nice and thick, about 1/2 inch at least, and instead of being circular it has a triangle-like shape to it. The design of the base makes it extremely easy to grip, each indent in the triangle is a perfect place to hold on to while thrusting.

It also is perfect for use in a harness. As long as you have the correct o-ring size it will not slip out as the thickness of the base prevents it from warping out of the ring. The triangle shape makes it fit well in any harness, fitting with the natural triangle shape of the pubic mound and making it extremely comfortable. While the base is not made to be a suction-cup, but it is slightly concave and can work somewhat well as one if you try.

The dildo itself is fairly long, seven and a half inches, which makes it excellent for use in a harness by a larger person04 such as myself as you can easily see it. I think longer dildos give more control over movements in some way as well, with shorter toys I tend to slip out more often, but longer ones are easier to keep inside. It is also gracefully curved and hits the g-spot easily and wonderfully. The firmness of the silicone really makes it ideal for g-spot or p-spot stimulation.

Fun Factory Wave

As you can see in the pictures above the shaft is also where Wave gets it’s name. It has three distinct “waves” in it which each are gradually larger than the other. They have a nice curve to them so they are not jarring when inserted but, rather, a pleasant sensation. They give the feeling of fullness without the shaft being too thick in and of itself.

I have used Wave both in a harness and solo and I think it shines both ways, the ridges on it are lovely, gradually increasing in side and giving delightful sensation when moving in and out. It is currently one of my favorite harness-compatible toys. If you love ribbed dildos or just want to try one I would definitely say this is a wonderful one to try.

Review: Fun Factory G-Twist

funfactorygtwist

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Fun Factory toys, I have quite a lot of them and they’re all made with high standards of quality and care as well as body safe materials, all factors of a quality company. Not only is this a Fun Factory toy, but the G-Twist was made specifically by Fun Factory for Good Vibrations, an amazing sex-positive feminist and all-around-awesome sex toy shop, designed by the GV staff to be the ultimate insertable g-spot vibrator.

I’m personally not much of a fan of internal vibrations, I prefer my insertables to not vibrate and strong vibrations on my clit, so I was a little unsure of how well the G-Twist would work for me. The benefit, though, of having a vibrator that is made for g-spot and internal stimulation is that you can just use it without the vibe essentially as a dildo. My girlfriend Marla, however, thought it was wonderful in both vibrating and non-vibrating modes.

The G-Twist is a gorgeous specimen of g-spot toy and vibrator, long and relatively thick with wonderful ridges all over it. The ridges add to the girth of it a bit, making it suitable even for a size queen such as myself, and the curve of it finds the g-spot easily and presses in just the right places. The vibrations are fairly strong, although nowhere near hitachi strong but few things are, and can be felt easily from base to tip. I couldn’t get off clitorally using this toy alone, but used internally paired with a strong clitoral vibrator it was heavenly.

The majority of the toy is extremely bendable, the last four or five inches or so, which is surprising for a toy with such vibrations. At the base where the silicone meets the handle, battery case, and dial-controls there is a ridge of silicone which can actually be bent up during use to hit the clit. I did this for Marla while we were trying the G-Twist out, and she said it was extremely pleasant.

gtwist

The G-Twist also comes in six different colors (above), all of which are beautiful.

I’ve heard other reviewers have had issues with the battery case, but I didn’t find it to be true. It was a little tricky, as you have to push in either side of the bottom at just the right spot to get the batter compartment to pop out, but once I did it the first time it was easy to do so from then on.

The dial control was interesting to use, as it can be turned either clockwise or counter-clockwise and continuously in 360+ degrees, although only a 180 degree amount of it will turn the toy on. The vibrations vary from barely there to nice and strong depending on where the dial is turned to. I haven’t had any issues with accidentally turning the dial while using it, which is a big plus in my book.

A big huge thank you to Good Vibrations for providing me with the Fun Factory G-Twist!

Review: Fun Factory Curve

What can I say about the Fun Factory Curve? Well, I’ve wanted this toy for quite some time, it’s quite popular and I had seen it in stores before but never got around to getting one until now.

Curve is both loved and hated, and the problem sometimes with reviewing something so intimate as sex toys is that because everyone is different no one toy will work for every person. There are toys that are mediocre which tend to run the entire continuum from love to hate, but good toys are usually more a love/hate binary because they either work perfectly or not at all. That’s my experience anyway.

Upon receiving Curve I first assessed it’s potential faults and the things I’ve read other reviewers say about it. It was softer than I expected and more flexible as well; while silicone has a wide range of pliability this was more pliable than most other Fun Factory toys I have played with. I was concerned the softness would reduce the accuracy and ability of Curve to hit my g-spot.

The other issue I’ve heard about and was worried about is the bump at the beginning. Curve has a head on it which, along with the swirls on the side, is a different texture than the rest of the shaft (this is somewhat visible in the picture above). The different texture is smoother, allowing the head to be slicker than the rest which is a wonder for insertion, but the bump on the head makes it quite a bit thicker than the rest of the toy. I’ve heard this bump can be extremely irritating and uncomfortable when in use.

So, that’s what I’ve heard. What did I think? Well…

I’m really just a beginner g-spotter but I’ve always loved combined clitoral and internal stimulation even before I knew where or what my g-spot was. The first toy to find and caress my g-spot perfectly was the Ophoria Beyond No. 3, which I love dearly, but Curve holds the title of the first toy I’ve squirted with (combined with a strong vibration on my clit), so that should tell you something!

I had no issue with this toy’s softness, it doesn’t feel soft when inside me and it had no problem hitting my g-spot wonderfully and perfectly! I didn’t find the bump on the head to be an issue either, but I’m also a bit of a size queen so those who are not used to stretching around larger objects may have difficulty with the bump. My girlfriend thought the bump was uncomfortable while thrusting, specifically coming out, because of the lip on it, but I didn’t even really notice it.

What I did notice was the curve was excellent. It isn’t as intense as on the Fun Factory Delight or even the Pure Wand, but it is more pronounced than the Ophoria Beyond No. 3.

The way I like my g-spot stimulation, I’ve come to realize, is not through thrusting but through rocking and jiggling the toy inside of me. Too much thrusting and my g-spot just gets sore and hurts, and I don’t like that! On both Marla and myself once we found the right place we were able to keep it there and jiggle and wiggle Curve around quickly to stimulate that spot over and over, resulting in (as I mentioned) quite epic and massive squirting on my part. I was highly impressed.

A big huge thank you to Adult Sensations for sending me Curve to review!

Review: Angelo [Fun Factory Week]

Fun Factory Week concludes with a cute mini-vibe!

Did you see the rest of Fun Factory Week with the Boss (Lady), Cuffies Freestyle, Smartballs, and Bloomy reviews?

angelo

Angelo is a slightly different kind of vibe than the Boss Lady as he is part of Fun Factory’s miniVibes collection. He’s, well, smaller obviously, and as he takes two AAA batteries rather than four he is less intense as well.

The shape is pleasing to the eye and I love the rippley designs on the shaft and head. While this vibrator was very good and did it’s job to get me off there was just no “wow” factor to it for me. That may be because I’m a bit of a toy snob by now, and while there was nothing wrong with Angelo per se I just wasn’t all that impressed with him.

The idea behind the miniVibes is that they are small enough to carry around with you and fit in a purse or backpack easier than larger, bulkier vibes. This is definitely true, it’s small and compact, rather adorable. It’s also meant to be versatile, with the curve at the end of Angelo being made for both clitoral and g-spot stimulation.

I especially enjoyed Angelo for clitoral stimulation, not with the tip of the curve but with the outer curve itself. I fit the flat back of the curving tip against my clit and was able to use a good amount of pressure, which was very nice and not something all vibrators can do. If you like a lot of pressure Angelo is great for that reason alone.

However, g-spot stimulation was kind of a bust. Angelo just wasn’t really long enough or the right shape or size to get my g-spot where I needed it. Few toys can get me off on g-spot stimulation alone but Angelo not only couldn’t do that but had a difficult time finding my g-spot even with the assist of my knowledgeable hands. Luckily I’m not all to into internal vibration anyway, preferring to keep my vibrators external and my dildos internal, but that could definitely be difficult for some. However, others also may not find it as difficult to find the g-spot with Angelo as I did, so that’s something to keep in mind as well.

Overall Angelo is a decent vibe and great as far as portability. A lot of smaller vibes would either be more expensive or not as well made, which is definitely a plus.

Much thanks to Babeland for sending me Angelo to review!

Review: Bloomy [Fun Factory Week]

Fun Factory Week continues with an adorable anal toy!

Did you see the beginning of Fun Factory Week with the Boss (Lady), Cuffies Freestyle, and Smartballs reviews?

bloomy

The first moment I laid eyes on Bloomy I was in love. The picture just does not do it justice. It’s gorgeous and unique, qualities I look for in new toys, and qualities which Fun Factory constantly delivers. Since my toy collection is quite vast and grows larger by the week the more unique and unusual looking a toy is the more I’m interested in it. Couple that with high-quality silicone and a gorgeous design and I get even more excited!

Bloomy is shaped similar to some prostate massagers, as it has a curved base and then a stem sticking out which could easily massage the perineum while inserted anally or the clit (depending on where your clit is) when inserted vaginally or anally. The two different shafts of it are basically one strip of silicone looped around itself, crating a very nice finger hold which makes the toy very easy to thrust with and easy to maneuver in general.

While both shafts could technically be inserted I have only played with the larger more bulbous shaft, but we have tried it anally on Onyx and after washing it in the dishwasher to sterilize it I used it on myself vaginally. The sensations were wonderful, the stylized dimples in the shaft definitely create a very unique sensation which adds to the pleasure the toy elicits. I could feel the bumps with every thrust inside myself and found that the stem of Bloomy hit my clit with each thrust as well.

For some reason I imagined the stem of Bloomy to be more circular than it is, but instead it is more rectangular and flat, which makes it fit nicely against those sensitive nether bits either curving up toward the clit or up against the perineum. The stem, aside from adding aesthetic pleasure, definitely makes Bloomy stand a little above most other dildo/plugs.

Obviously Bloomy can be used vaginally and anally, as I’ve mentioned that several times, but if you are wanting to use him both places be sure to sterilize him before going from anus to vagina. Vagina to anus is not a problem, but going the other way can bring bacteria to the wrong area and create issues. Bloomy can be completely sterilized by boiling for 10 minutes, washing in the top shelf of the dishwasher with no soap, or wiping down with a 10% bleach solution. To clean I recommend an anti-bacterial toy cleaner or an anti-bacterial soap especially if using anally.

Even though I fell in love initially with the shape and beauty of Bloomy the functionality and pleasure made me fall in love all over again.

Review: Smartballs [Fun Factory Week]

Fun Factory Week continues with these well-known kegel exercisers!

Did you see the start of Fun Factory Week with the Boss (Lady) and Cuffies Freestyle reviews?

smartballs

I’ve been interested in Smartballs for quite some time. Smartballs, as you can see above, are basically two round balls connected to each other with a cord attached that is vaguely reminiscent of a tampon string. I’m not sure what the string is made of, as in the information pamphlet it simply says that the string is made to be impermeable so that bacteria can’t get in it, but the material itself is slightly tacky to the touch which is not very pleasant. The tackyness does, however, make it easy to get a grip on the string to pull it out.

The balls themselves have weighted balls inside of them which jiggle around with the slightest of movements. In addition to simply having something inserted that needs to be held inside while using them, the weights add a little more oomph to the toy both in terms of sensation and effectiveness. The weighted balls cause the Smartballs to vibrate slightly inside which causes the pelvic floor muscles to contract around them thus working out the kegel muscles.

Smartballs are made of elastomed which is supposedly a non-porous mixture of Elastomer and Silicone both of which are phthalate-free but the former of which is porous. This is a material used only by Fun Factory (as far as I can tell) and patented by Fun Factory which is supposedly body-safe but I’d still be a little wary at sharing the item even though it’s supposed to be non-porous.

Kegel exercisers are best used on a daily or semi-daily basis for faster results. Strengthening the pelvic floor muscles can improve urinary or bowel control and can also increase control over ejaculation. Specifically for females they increase tightness of the vagina, prevent pelvic prolapse, and can increase sexual arousal/desire. For males they can diminish premature ejaculation, encourage multiple orgasms (especially multiples without ejaculation), and result in a stronger erection.

Smartballs are also just generally arousing, though few people if any would be able to get off from them alone wearing them during masturbation with a vibrator, finger, or tongue on the clit is absolutely divine, and clenching around them during orgasm feels wonderful. They are also great to wear in conjunction with anal Kegel exercisers for added pleasure and a greater workout.

I found the Smartballs to be rather long, almost too long for my vagina when not already aroused, but trying to keep them inside without having them slip out is part of the fun (and definitely the point). They were highly comfortable to wear, even for long periods of time, but due to being just a little too long or my kegel muscles not being up to snuff they had a tendency to fall out, so if you are planning on wearing them outside of the house be sure you have bathrooms where you can adjust them as necessary.

You can find the Fun Factory Smartballs, along with other Pelvic Exercisers and sex toys of every flavor on SexToy.Com.

Review: Cuffies Freestyle [Fun Factory Week]

Fun Factory Week continues with a new and slightly unusual FF item!

Did you see the start of Fun Factory Week with the Boss (Lady) review yesterday?

Note: I recently had to slice the RAM of my computer in half, because of that my video isn’t recording as nicely as it used to. Some of the video is extremely choppy, and I apologize, but I think you get the idea.

Cuffies are a new Fun Factory item that I think are absolutely adorable. They are meant to be light bondage items with the cuffs being fashionable and discreet enough to wear with an everyday outfit but with hoops on them to attach the included aluminum chain. Fun Fatory actually has a few different designs including Hippie which are brown and turquoise and close with cufflinks, and Freestyle which are the ones I’m reviewing today and are black/grey and orange and close with ribbon.

The cuffs themselves are made out of rubber, which is something I’m actually disappointed about. The rubber means that the cuffs have no breatheability whatsoever so they end up getting your wrists sweaty even after a short period of use. This kind of defeats the idea of being able to wear them casually for long(ish) periods of time or even wearing them for long periods of play time, especially in the warmer months. I would imagine I would enjoy wearing them more in the cooler months, however.

Other than the breatheability issue I think they are cute and definitely serve their purpose. They are definitely not a heavy-duty item but they can withstand a small amount of resistance and would be extremely fun for quick bondage especially in public. I imagine quick and dirty park sex with wrists bound by the chain of these cute babies, maybe behind the back with the penetrating partner holding onto the chain… or any other quick fantasy. That is definitely what these cuffs are made for and where they shine.

Being able to wear them discreetly is also a plus, as they can be a focal point for power play if used correctly, since they are bondage items that don’t really look extremely kinky or out of place. A jiggling of the chain in the Top’s pocket or a simple touch or tug on the cuffs themselves from the Top can remind the bottom that s/he is subject to be bound at any given time. There are really many possibilities to the use of these adorable cuffs.

Review: Boss (Lady) [Fun Factory Week]

Welcome to Fun Factory Week!

I have five Fun Factory toys to review this week, and I’m starting off with one of my favorites, a Babeland exclusive, Boss, or possibly Boss Lady.

bossmine1

There’s a little confusion over this vibe going around which I definitely share. I actually went to the Babeland store here in Seattle and was able to hold an original Boss in my hand (image on the left below) which is different than the one I received.

When this was offered it was offered with the image and description of the Boss, the item on the left, but what arrived was the Boss Lady, the item pictured below on the right, although not the hot pink version (which I was thankful for) although that seems to be the only color currently available.

Having tried the old-style Boss in the Babeland store I was actually thankful that I got the newer version, as I liked the upgrades better. The newer Boss Lady has two push-buttons to change vibration intensity and vibration patterns, a plus and a minus, while the old-style Boss had a round dial to turn it on and off and I’m unsure if it had vibration patterns though I don’t think it did.

The older-style Boss I tried out in the store did not work very well, while it turned on it was difficult to turn back off because the dial went around and around and I had to find the right spot to turn it off. However, this could also have to do with the fact that it was a demo version that had been out for customers to turn on and off over and over probably for quite some time. The new style Boss’ buttons are somewhat hard to press, especially the first few times I used it, which was highly annoying. They seem to get easier each time I press them, though, which is good, but they are still somewhat stiff.

In addition to the stiff plus and minus buttons the Boss it also has a “turbo” or “booster” button beneath them (see image on the left below) which is supposed to up the vibration of the toy just when you need it most to help you get over the edge. I was not impressed at all with the turbo button as it’s extremely difficult to push in the first place, much more difficult than the plus and minus buttons were, and continues to be difficult. It also doesn’t really add that much from what I can tell, so I doubt I’ll actually use it.

There have been quite a few other reviews of Boss which talk about issues with the toy working for a variety of reasons, but I had no issues with mine aside from the stiff buttons. Still, for the price one would hope there shouldn’t be common issues with operation malfunctioning.

The other major difference between the two styles is that the old style had a smooth silicone finish, much like that of other silicone toys, but the new style has a velvety matte finish that is absolutely divine! I couldn’t stop touching it once I got it and love the finish, though it does create more friction than other smoother silicone finishes and that combined with the sublime girth of the toy means a good amount of lubrication is required before insertion.

Speaking of girth, I do quite love the size of the Boss, thick and wonderful without being overwhelming or daunting. Quite perfect, really, especially for an amateur size queen such as myself. Boss is semi-realistic looking with a distinct head and veins at the base of the insertable silicone, and has a wonderful g-spot curve which I could definitely feel and adored.

I adore the black color and am disappointed that Babeland only seems to have the hot pink for sale, although while I was at the store I was told the color selection on Fun Factory toys is somewhat sporadic and they basically just get whatever Fun Factory sends to them regardless of color requests.

Honestly, I’m not big on internal vibrations as I prefer my vibrations clitoral and although Boss’ vibrations are substantial and wonderful for clitoral stimulation he’s rather cumbersome when used that way. However, I love Boss’ girth and the velvety texture is just delicious so I know I’m going to be using him a lot as a dildo at least (which he does very well) even if not with vibration included.
