A Fun Cup For Your Fun Factory

Fun Factory Fun Cup celebration

Exactly two years ago to the month (insert X-Files theme song), Adultsmart published an article on vaginal odours and menstrual cups. The article I wrote began with this bold statement:

 “If you have a vagina, or you know someone who has a vagina, you/your friend with a vagina, NEEDS a menstrual cup. Or, let me start with a less bold statement – you/your friend with a vagina needs to consider not using tampons”.

It’s been two years and by God I stand by my proclamation.

When I first got my period, I jumped straight to using tampons for convenience. My mum used them and she said that they were easy, comfortable, you could swim with them in and basically everybody uses them. For years I suffered from extreme discomfort during menstruation with severe vaginal itchiness, dryness and hotness. As I got older, things got worse and it became impossible for me to self-lubricate during sex. My vagina was a hot mess, literally, and it took me years to piece together that tampons were the problem.

When you Google “side effects of using tampons” a number of alarming words and sentiments are scattered through the results page, such as; severe irritation, made with harsh chemicals, increases risk in serious diseases, linked to cancer, can cause vaginal infections and so on. It makes me question, why are tampons so highly recommended over other menstrual products with ZERO side effects, which have better consequences for the environment?

What if I told you that you could buy just ONE product to use while on your period, that you would not have to replace for years to come.

Cue, the menstrual cup.

Menstrual cups have been around for 80 odd years, but the truth of their excellence has been lost in the current throw-away society, which has consumers purchasing one use items that are designed to be used once and then tossed away. Menstrual cups are a small, typically flexible silicone cup, that fits up inside the vagina to catch menstrual blood and are designed to be reused for many years.

Benefits of using menstrual cups

  • ZERO discomfort or vaginal irritation during use (if made from high quality medical grade silicone)
  • Can be worn safely for up to 12 hours
  • They cost less than tampons in the long run: one cup can cost you anywhere between $30-$60 (depending on the brand) and can last you up to ten years. The cost of tampons could be broken down to (based on my menstrual… abilities?) = 1 tampon every 4-5 hours x 4 tampons per day x around 7 days of a menstrual period, equals around 28 tampons per cycle. Times 28 tampons by the average amount of menstrual periods in a lifetime (456 periods), that equals 12,768 tampons. At around 32 tampons per box, that’s 399 boxes of tampons. Times that by the average fee of a box of tampons, which is around AUD$8.00, that’s $3,192 in just one person’s life time. JUST ON TAMPONS.
  • They don’t end up in landfill or in our oceans
  • Little to no odour as the menstrual blood is not exposed to oxygen due to the suction of the menstrual cup on the vaginal walls
  • Sexual intercourse is possible, and less messy
  • Great for people who define themselves as non-binary
  • Perfect for travel
  • Easy to use

There’re many menstrual cup companies which are available to use around the world. I started with Australian made and owned ‘JuJu Cup’, which was great, until I tried the Fun Factory Fun Cup. It’s no secret that I love Fun Factory. I have written many a review on Fun Factory’s expertise and capabilities in sex toy manufacturing, but I was genuinely impressed to see them take on the task of creating a cutting-edge menstrual cup. And they’ve done it.

Watch this short promotional video to see the cups in use! Not literally, get your head outta’ the gutter!

The Fun Cup comes in two sizes. Genius. Not every vagina is the same size or bleeds the same amount of blood, duh. So Fun Factory have created the ‘A’ cup and the ‘B’ cup.

Fun Factory Fun Cup
Image: Fun Factory Fun Cup Sizes

The A cup is smaller in size and holds 20ml of blood while the B cup is larger and can hold up to 30ml of blood. Fun Factory recommends the A cup for people with a lighter flow, or for people who haven’t given birth, while the B cup would suit a heavier flow and for people who have given birth. I know what you’re thinking… What if I buy the A cup but it’s not suited to my flow or is the wrong size ergonomically for my body? Well that’s the genius thing. Fun Factory has created three options: The A + A kit, where you get two A cups, the B + B kit, two B cups, and the Explore kit, where you can get one of each cup size. GENIUS.

I happily use the A cup as my cup of choice during menstruation. I was hoping to be able to use the B cup, as I do have a heavier flow, though the size wasn’t quite right for my body (okay Fun Factory, you were right). But that’s the great thing about the size kit – you know 100% when buying it that one of those cups will fit your body and work best for your period. For me, on a bad first day, I can wear the A cup for around 4 hours before needing to empty it. But from usually the second day onwards, I can go all day or all night before needing to change my cup. I wake up in the morning, empty the cup, rinse, put it back in and can leave it until I go to bed. Care free. ALL DAY.

Fun Factory’s Fun Cups are made with the same non-porous, hypoallergenic, medical-grade silicone that Fun Factory uses for their sex toys. You can totally tell when you hold the cups in your hands that they’re made from top quality materials. They’re flexible, but sturdy enough to bend and pop back into shape in your vagina.

To insert, you bend the cup into different shapes to easily insert it into your vagina, though the three most popular folds are shown in the below image. The more you play around with your Fun Cup, the quicker you’ll realise what method is easiest for you to quickly and seamlessly insert your cup. I personally prefer the C-fold.

Once you’ve inserted your cup as far as you can comfortably insert it, for it to be correctly inserted you should be able to feel when you run your fingers around the base of the cup that the cup is popped out all the way and suctioned completely to the walls of your vagina. If there are some folds or the cup hasn’t quite popped out right, you can fix it by using the sturdy base of the cup to twist and shuffle the cup around to encourage it to pop out.

What’s great about the Fun Cup is that the bottom of the cup is made from hard, firm silicone which is easy to hold onto inside your vagina to twist the cup into place or to use it to remove the cup. My JuJu cup had a long string-like piece of silicone, similar to the image above but thinner, which when you pulled would stretch out like an elastic band. Once, in the early days when I was trying to remove my cup, I pulled the silicone string and it stretched out and then flicked back up into my vagina like a cruel, unforgiving slingshot. Thankfully, the Fun Cup’s solid base does not stretch out and is a great base to hold onto to remove the cup. It also stops before turning into the flexible cup so there is no accidental grabbing of the cup leading to over-spilling when trying to remove it.

Tips and tricks to securing your Fun Cup

  • Lubricate the circular rim of the cup and it will slide straight in and pop into shape perfect, first go
  • Pinch from the bottom of the cup when inserting the cup so that you can propel it into your vagina and allow it to pop into shape without your fingers being in the way
  • Twist and shuffle into place, rather than removing the cup and re-inserting
  • According to Fun Factory, the fun cup A holds FOUR TIMES the amount of blood a tampon does, allowing for the coolest thing (in my opinion), which is being able to easily measure how much you bleed in an average cycle and what the average consistency and colour of your menstrual blood is; which is actually pretty useful information if you ever need to see a doctor about suspected menstrual abnormalities.

Once you want to empty your menstrual cup, you squeeze and pull from that little anchor point at the bottom and pull the cup out. You can pour the blood into the toilet bowl, or ceremoniously dump it if that’s more your style, and then flush it away. All you need to do to keep your cup clean while on your period, rinse with water or wipe with toilet paper before re-inserting.

Once your period has finished, it’s highly recommended that you boil your cup in water to correctly clean it. In the Fun Factory video, it shows you somebody doing this over the stove in a pot… I’m super lazy, or super-efficient depending how you look at it, and have a dedicated ‘period cup’ which I pour boiling water into from the kettle and let the cup sit in that for around 2-3 minutes before storing it in the antimicrobial bag that comes with the Fun Cup’s. The antimicrobial bag means that you can keep the cup on you at all times in a safe and clean bag, ensuring the cup is ready to be used whenever you need it.

One of my FAVOURITE features of the Fun Cup is that it’s opaque (non-transparent). My JuJu cup is made from a see-through silicone, which after two years is looking a bit… grotesque. The colour is now a sort of dull-yellow, whilst cleaned correctly after every period, the stains still remain. My Fun Cup appears to have never been used, even when I pull it straight out of my vagina. The blood seems to not adhere to the silicone, somehow, like those sprays you use to keep your new shoes clean, when rinsed the blood comes straight off.

On top of being better for your body and better for the environment, Fun Factory also markets the Fun Cup as being a great product for anybody who menstruates, not just cis-gendered women. The Fun Cup’s packaging is non-gendered, and the colours of the cups are also androgynous. But not only that, the Fun Cup allows menstruators to live with their period in an easi-ER fashion.

Making the switch from tampons to a menstrual cup like the Fun Cup, could save 12,768 of your tampons from going into the ocean or into land fill. When you think about how many people globally are menstruating, that’s a lot of tampons, and your small switch to a Fun Cup, can make a big difference to the environment. Overall, I was super happy with the design and ergonomics of the Fun Cup and had no troubles in using the A cup. Whilst I did try to conquer the B cup, the B cup conquered me, granted, it is recommended for use in people who have had children. The Fun Cup is easy to insert, easy to remove and easy to clean and I can say that I have more than happily made the switch from my beloved first menstrual cup. The only downside of a Fun Cup, is that it makes you one of those annoying friends who constantly tries to force their friends and family into purchasing one also.

Gee! Billy Loves To Play With P-Spots.

Billy Loves Prostates

The manufacturer claims that Lelo Billy is:

  “The Most Sophisticated Gentlemen’s G-Spot Massager”

in the world.  I am not sure about that as there are so many prostate massagers out there but it certainly is designed to allow men to stimulate their prostate gland 

the male G-Spot

given men erotic delight.  It is made from 100 percent pure silicone and it feels as soft as velvet.  At the base of the toy there is a ring that is placed there for safety sot that there is no chance you can ‘over insert it into the anus and the handle provide sufficient grip to use the toy comfortably.  There are speed and mode controls in the ABS plastic handle as well allowing you to use this toy exactly to one’s personal taste.

Inside it has a powerful lithium batter that will charge full in two hours and then can be enjoyed for up to four hours of uninterrupted anal play.  It is a comfort to know that no matter how hot and hard the action becomes when fully charged this sex toy for men will not disappoint.  Even there is a whole lot of power that packs a punch the adult toy is surprisingly quiet unlike many other vibrators that are out there.  Good to know when you have visitors over or you are renting a bedroom with other people.

The size of the Lelo billy is 6.9 inches in full length, by 3.9 inches in insertable length by 1.1 inches in maximum width.

The Lelo Package includes:

  • Lelo’s Billy prostate massager
  • Recharger
  • Silky satin bag
  • A sachet of Lelo lubricant
  • Small user manual
  • Warranty card with Lelo Billy ID

When my parcel arrived from my purchase online I was excited to open it.  Once I did though I was a bit underwhelmed by the size of the sex toy and it was much smaller than what I thought it was going to be.  It is my own fault as I did not check the sizes of it prior to purchase however owning a collection of vibrators and adult toys my expectation was quite different.  On the positive side being a prostate massager this definitely is not one that is going to intimidate and is certainly great for someone experimenting with their P-Spot for the very first time.

The tip of the vibrator has a delicate and gentle curve that to be quite honest was so soft and smooth with no friction whatsoever that it made inserting it an absolute dream.  Make sure you use sufficient lubricant though and relax all the same.  After using it myself for the very first time the old adage came to mind that

good things come in small packages

as it is a really lovely toy and the dimensions and shape are perfect to pin-point prostate stimulation’s.

The handle was easy to handle and the ease in which you could click through speeds and modes whilst using was well-thought out.  To me this is one of the most important things as you nor I wish to have to ‘pull out’ in the middle of action.  Nothing smashes the moment more than that.

There are 4 separate choices on the controls, yet it’s truly basic: Press the + catch to turn it on or accelerate, press the – catch to back off and kill, or press the up or down bolts to change vibration modes.  When you make a control choice, the ring around the control cushion lights up – it will also light up whilst charging. I would describe the best modes as being:

  1. Constant
  2. Diverse “Heartbeat” designs
  3. The Wave that like its name ebbs and flows in vibration speed

My favourites benefits of using the Lelo Billy include:

  • Highly luxurious sex toy brand.
  • High quality body safe silicone.
  • Quiet sex toy.
  • Different modes and speed choices.
  • Lelo’s 1 year warranty.
  • After the Lelo’s 1 year warranty, for the next 10 years if the Lelo is damaged according to their terms and condition you get 50% off your next Lelo purchase.

The Lelo Billy is pretty but was not exactly what I expected visually when I first opened it – I had thought it would be a bit bigger. After I at last had an opportunity to kick back with Billy my disposition has changed totally. Billy may be somewhat smaller in size, however that really meets expectations well. The Lelo Billy is really easy to use and add to that the way that it is little and sufficiently smooth that my body doesn’t tend to push it out like with bigger toys I have used.  It stays put until ultimately I cum so it is going to be a prostate massager I am going to continue to us. I didn’t realize I had been searching for a smaller toy to get me off however now I think the Lelo Billy possesses all those necessary qualities.

How the We-Vibe Sync works

Many people look at this device with the most confused look on their face and trust me, trying to explain how this device works using only words can be hard for some people to actually imagine. So with the use of this diagram I am going to show you how this device works and fitted. Simple isn’t it!

For those using it as a secret vibrator for your lover to control during a night or while at work, etc you can insert the device the same way, or for more control if you are nervous about the device falling out, you can put it in with the larger head inside and the smaller head pressing firmly on the clit, either way will give you waves, pulses and vibrations of delight.

Using the We-Vibe Sync
Image: How to use the We-Vibe Sync

The main issue most people have with this device is the app, the more reviews you read, the more you notice that people either love it with all their being or they hate it! And just to clarify they don’t hate the Sync they hate the app! If you read into the hate reviews they are all because of the app disconnecting during use. Now, I don’t know if it’s because they have connected it wrong or if they haven’t fully followed the instructions completely, but with my trials I did notice a few reasons why the app would disconnect.

This can be fixed by making a few simple changes and if you follow the instructions correctly, you can take full advantage of all the Sync has to offer. One issue I noticed was that laptops, iPads, tablets and other Bluetooth devices can interrupt the connection. That being said if you move them 1-2 meters away at least this considerably decreases the interruptions.

Also something that I thought was fairly self-explanatory others may have not thought of, the Sync must always be in close distance to the device that has the app on it, and you send a link to your loved one for them to control. Which means the primary app device should be on your own device, which then allows you to send a link to your lover to give them the option of controlling but you can also disconnect their control if need be.

The app allows you to have a lot more personal customizations then just using the remote or button on the Sync. You are able to create your own custom playlists choosing your favourite modes, intensities and durations.

Not only can you customize your vibrations you can also video call and text over the app to your lover (aka your pleasure controller) to make it even more personal and intimate.

The We-Connect app features

  • Touch the screen to control the vibrations and build intensity, swipe to change modes and pinch to adjust intensity.
  • Multiple modes
  • Create and customize your own vibes by drawing your own vibe!
  • Make your own playlist of your favourite modes. You can adjust the duration of each vibration and intensity.
  • Your lover can control the We-Vibe from anywhere in the world.
  • You can control each other’s We-Vibe and pass control back and forth.
  • In-app voice, chat and video.
We-connect on the smartphone

Now not only is the Sync amazing! It also has two features on the We-connect app that is exclusive just for the Sync!

  • Beat mode: This mode gives the option to vibe to the rhythm of your favourite music, or picks up ambient noises in your surroundings.
  • Touch mode: You have real time custom control over every action. Use the screen to instantly control the vibrations.

For these reasons and so many more the Sync is one of my favourite sex toys in store because it has so many uses and reasons for its existence.

If that doesn’t majorly tempt you into buying a Sync then I’d say you were insane! It is one of the best couples sex toys available.

I am part of the We-Vibe cult are you?

Build Your Ultimate Orgasm Like A Supernova

Womans orgasm face

We-Vibe Nova is a rabbit vibrator made by a very popular adult company named Standard Innovation Corporation which is located in Canada who specialise in the creation of powerful women’s and couple’s sex toys. We-Vibe Nova is a unique step in the right direction towards a rabbit vibrator that can fit almost every woman’s anatomy. This is because We-Vibe have tried something different with the Nova. Unlike most rabbit vibrators, where the clitoral stimulator ‘reaches’ for the clitoris, the clitoral stimulator on Nova bends to apply constant stimulation to the clitoris, even when thrusting with the sex toy.

Overall, the general thought process of the Nova is spot on. You typically can’t thrust with a dual vibrator without constant disturbance of the clitoral stimulator – where the clitoral arm actually parts from the clitoris and sometimes slams back on when you thrust all the way back in. This is why I tend to go for two separate sex toys when considering what I should buy. Since they are not connected, you can move both sex toys to exactly where you want them in any way you like. The We-Vibe Nova is a perfectly ‘average’ sized dual stimulator.

The idea of the Nova is that you have complete freedom to do as you wish with it. Thrust, grind, whatever – the clitoral arm has been designed to stay put with a firm fit. And it does. But that’s also (funnily enough) part of my biggest problem with the We-Vibe Nova. The clitoral arm stays put so much so that it puts an awful lot of pressure onto the clitoris – especially if you want to fully insert the toy. The arm has to bend all the way down towards the shaft and it actually hurts to do it on my hand let alone having that much pressure on my clit.

I do, however, acknowledge that the concept of this sex toy is fantastic – and the main thing to consider when buying this sex toy is your personal preference. Some questions you should ask yourself when considering whether you would like to buy this toy is:

  • Do you like direct stimulation to the clitoris, as opposed to all over vulva/clitoral stimulation?
  • Do you like to apply pressure to your clitoris?
  • Do you like short length toys as opposed to deeper internal massaging?

It literally comes down to personal preference. If you love those three things (which a lot of people do!!), I can guarantee you won’t be able to find a better sex toy on the market to suit your needs. If you can’t handle pressure on your clitoris, if you find direct stimulation overstimulating or need a sex toy with a longer length – the Nova most likely won’t agree with your body.

Which brings me to my next point, due to the clitoral arm bending the way it does. The maximum amount of insertable length of the We-Vibe Nova is 3.1 inches which is really not much at all. The clitoral arm has a width of 1.1 inches. Whilst it is a G-Spot sex toy, half of the shaft on the sex toy is not usable. The shaft is also only 1.3 inches in girth which is on the thin side. Again, these are both qualities that people ask for every day.

A sex toy on the smaller side is exactly what a lot of people are looking for. Yet again, the preference in size is a major decider on whether you are going to enjoy this sex toy. It’s control pad and handle is the exact same as LELO’s INA and MONA waves. The entire sex toy (except for the magnetic charging point) is silicone and it has the same interface to change the functions. It is also 100% waterproof making is easy to clean and safe for some fun in the tub as it can be safely submerged in water.

One thing that REALLY impressed me with the We-Vibe Nova (as well as the other new vibrator in We-Vibes new range, Rave) is that it can connect to the We-Connect application just the same as the We-Vibe 4 Plus! This means I can use my Samsung Mobile or even an Apple Mobile to run the application. I thought this was super super cool. We now have a vibrator with the same unique features as the 4 Plus, where couples can connect from anywhere in the world.

From speaking to our sales representative and researching online, I’ve also found out that one phone application can connect to all three sex toys at once – by that I mean you can have a Rave, a Nova and a We-Vibe 4 Plus connected to any one application (if you own all three of course) and choose which one you would like to control at any given time. I LOVE We-Vibe and what they have done with this. This function makes it a super unique addition to our range of sex toys and is a big selling point. On the app, there is also several more vibration functions that aren’t included on the interface “built in” modes on the sex toy, as well as the ‘create your own’ option.

A rabbit vibrator by We-Vibe
Image: We-Vibe Nova

The actual vibrations of the We-Vibe Nova are very powerful and rumbles pleasantly, yet if you need to back off on the power you can fine tune your own strength on the app. As with all We-Vibe products are made from high quality silicone, the Nova is 100% body safe – It is free from phthalates, latex and BPA. The Nova is USB rechargeable via a magnetic clip on the front and can fully charge in 90 minutes for 2 hours of play, which is pretty awesome. The Nova will also smartly let you know when its batteries are going empty, it has a low power alert indicator which flashes above the interface on the toy itself when on low power – Nova doesn’t want to disappoint you in the heat of the moment. Nova also comes with a really nice silky storage bag to protect itself from the dreaded lint attacks, it comes with an instruction manual and 1 year warranty.

The Nova’s vibrations are supported by 2 motors (one in the clitoral arm and one in the main shaft) which provide 10 unique different vibration modes. The Nova is also compatible with the We-Vibe app, meaning you can make your own vibration patterns with it or play around with it with your partner. 2 motors means twice the fun and even more ways to play with these patterns too, you can choose whether or not you have both motors on or either motor singularly.

While the We-Vibe Nova may look elegant and innocent its vibrations are anything but. Deep, rumbly and intensely satisfying, We-Vibe haven’t skimped out on making sure that the vibrations which made the ‘Tango’ and ‘Touch’ great have been integrated into their new generation of vibrators. One note to make is on the highest vibration setting the clitoral arm tends to be a little buzzy but the Nova is powerful enough that most people are happier using a lower setting.

So overall, I do really really like the We-Vibe Nova. I think it could be improved by making another Nova “2” with a less “stiff” (for want of a better word) clitoral arm so you don’t have to apply so much pressure to your clitoris. I think the We-Vibe Nova’s coolest asset is that it also connects to the We-Connect application. What I think you need to consider before purchasing Nova includes whether you would like direct clitoral stimulation, pressure on your clitoris and whether you like the length or girth of sizeable sex toys. If you have answered yes, you really won’t find a better fit for your body. If no, the We-Vibe Nova most likely won’t be for you. I’m confident that there is going to be a lot of people out there who are going to love the design of this sex toy and really appreciate the clitoral arm. They are going to be the people who see it and think:

“Yes! Finally, someone has created exactly what I’ve been asking for.”

This sex toy’s beautifully elegant design really does allow for effortless use, as the Nova bends to accommodate you instead of you having to change for it. Its flexible clitoral arm has just the right amount of give to allow it to move with your body but also the right amount of firmness and stability to stay in place during use. The Nova is an incredibly firm sex toy that isn’t particularly squishy at all which could be a negative for some users. If this was lined up next to a bunch of conventional rabbit vibrators it would look wholly out of place for all the right reasons. Sleek, non-representational, slim and body-safe, the Nova puts many of the other hopping bunnies to shame. Of course no sex toy can cater to every user but the We-Vibe definitely comes close to making a duel vibrator that does. Sleek, gorgeous, innovative clit arm and many more amazing features makes this a complete package. The only downsides I could see is that it isn’t squishy enough (that could be a positive though, it just depends on your preferences) and that there might be a minority of people out there that isn’t compatible with this device but other than that this brilliant sex toy deserves a place in collection.

Top 4 Budget Friendly Orgasms For First-Timers

Woman Making Orgasm

Working in the Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres, I get so excited when women come in buying their first vibrator. There is an enormous range of vibrators to choose from which means that many people can become overwhelmed with the options- different shapes, sizes and functions all ranging in price from $20 all the way up to more than $300.

I love when people can come in and be really open with what they are looking for because it means that they are more likely to walk away with a sex toy that is just right for them and their unique needs. When women have no idea what they are seeking, there are a few questions I like to ask to ascertain what will best suit them.

Upon asking them if they are looking for a clitoral or vaginal stimulator, many women can be unsure of what they like but are after something inexpensive. In this case, my go-to vibrators are the Fun Factory Mini Vibrator range. The Fun Factory Semilino, Amorino, Pearly & Cayona are in my opinion some of the best first-timers for women looking for a good quality sex toy.

These sex toys are a great size for newbies as they have enough length to use internally for vaginal penetration yet are small enough to use for clitoral stimulation. Trying to use something big and bulky for your clitoris can be very annoying and having a bullet sized vibe when you really want to have something inside you can be extremely frustrating!

Semilino

The Semilino is a ribbed, slightly curved dildo vibe with powerful vibrations. It features a grooved head on the end which can be bended for G-Spot stimulation. The Semilino is perfect for those who like a textured feel. It is available in black and bright pink.

Sex Toy: Semilino

Amorino

The Amorino is a very interesting vibrator, similar in shape to the rabbit style vibrators, featuring a unique silicone band around the shaft and clitoral stimulator. The purpose of this band is to provide greater external stimulation to the vagina and vulva as the powerful vibrations travel through it when turned on. The band can also be removed making this sex toy perfect for anal penetration due to the clit stimulator being a safe stopper. This sex toy features some gorgeous detail and is available in Aqua/Yellow or Pink/Yellow.

Pearly

The Pearly is a cute looking sex toy with an equally cute name. The Pearly features a round stimulator which I am guessing is for the stimulating the entry to the vagina as it would require a bit of manoeuvring to get it to stimulate your clit due to its short length. The insertable part is slightly curved and measure approximately 7cms in length. For women who may not like something very long, this would be a great option. The Pearly is available in purple or green.

Cayona

Saving my favourite till last, the Cayona is a playful looking sex toy, with our display version likened to a banana due to its unique pastel yellow shade (Also available in pastel pink, blue and green). The Cayona has a curved tip perfect for direct internal G-Spot stimulation or clitoral stimulation when used externally. The Cayona features grooves on the underside which adds a unique texture to your self-pleasuring experience.

All Fun Factory sex toys are made from medical grade silicone which has a slightly textured feel to it. When used with a good quality water based lubricant such as JO Agape, this is a very welcome sensation.

Do not let the word Mini confuse you – the vibrations are powerful and deep with adjustable speeds and patterns controlled with the 2 buttons. The On/Off button is simple to use-unlike other vibes it requires one press to turn it off. They also feature a travel lock which means they are great sex toys to travel with or to keep in your handbag (You know, just in case!).

These Fun Factory vibes are rechargeable with a magnetic USB charger. I’ve found these chargers can be slightly annoying to use so just make sure you have it on a flat surface when charging where you will not knock it. The sex toy is 100% waterproof making it great for play in the shower or bath and very easy to clean under the tap. I’d recommend using a foaming sex toy cleaner such as Wicked Foam n Fresh Cleaner for a really thorough clean. A well taken care of sex toy lasts a lot longer so keep this in mind.

The Fun Factory Vibrators feature a 2-year warranty which covers the sex toy against any manufacturing faults. I have constantly heard amazing things about the quality of Fun Factory vibrators so this is just an added reassurance that these sex toys will stand the test of time.

I believe these sex toys are perfect for vibrator newbies especially considering the affordable price and high quality. Definitely a big thumbs up from me!! For more information, be sure to read our exclusive interview with Laura Von Der Brelie from Fun Factory.
