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: Tantus Curve

tantuscurve

Curve is the latest beautiful toy from the wonderful toy maker Tantus. Why are they wonderful, you ask? Well, not only were they a generous sponsor of my Birthday Giveaway but they make products which are both gorgeous and functional and always use 100% medical-grade silicone, one of the safest materials for sex toys to be made of.

I don’t think I’ve met a Tantus product I haven’t liked, though I’m more than willing to test that theory and try every toy they make. You know, for the sake of science.

When I first saw Curve I was actually a little iffy on it, it’s not as sleek and smooth looking as many of the other Tantus products, I thought the curve of it actually looked kind of awkward and wasn’t appealing to me until I felt it inside of me.

My opinion of it changed vastly once I felt that curve hitting against my g-spot just about perfectly with just a slight amount of lube to make it slide in just right. Tantus silicone is always silky smooth and only needs a little bit of lube to work perfectly, just remember to never use silicone lube with a silicone toy as a chemical reaction can occur and ruin the toy.

One side of Curve has a slight ripple molded into it as you can see in the image above. It isn’t as noticeable while inserted as more pronounced bumps and ridges usually are but it definitely adds to the general feeling of the toy. Curve doesn’t need extreme texture to bring extreme pleasure as the shape of it takes care of that on it’s own.

The other new and improved feature of Curve is the base. Instead of the usual circular shape Curve has a teardrop-shaped base that is also thicker than regular Tantus bases. According to Tantus this is the first of many new toys with this larger base.

The new base is excellent for harnesses with any size o-ring and the teardrop shape is extremely comfortable. Both my girlfriend and I agree Curve is now our favorite strap-on dildo to date, and coming from two sex toy reviewers that’s saying something!

A big huge thanks to Tantus for sending me Curve to review!
