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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
