Fun Factory Amor Review

The Fun Factory Amor was my first ever dildo. I bought it from my favourite store, Max Black, after I found out that the Fuze Velvet wasn’t in stock. I was mostly drawn in by the velvety feel of the silicone, which seemed unspeakably luxurious. It has to be said, this is a good quality toy. I spent a good five minutes stroking the demo Amor while browsing other toys, and had really made my decision before I even saw the rest of the dildos on offer. I’ve loved Fun Factory’s funky designs and packaging ever since I first laid eyes on the Amor. Everything about the company is, well, fun. The Amor is small, affordable, semi-realistic, and well-shaped. I was looking for something that was gender affirming, but not grotesque in its realism like some PVC cocks can be. The Amor has a stylised head and a smooth shaft, but doesn’t have vein details. For a while, I’ve been disappointed that I got the Amor in black rather than orange, because the reason Fun Factory is so exciting is precisely because the colours of their toys deviate from the pinks and purples we so often see. It also comes in a pale flesh tone. Everything set the Amor up to be the perfect first dildo, but as well as their unique designs, Fun Factory is notorious for something else – their seriously draggy silicone. The texture that felt so good in my hands doesn’t work for my junk.

We-Vibe Touch Review

My heartbreaking tryst with the We-Vibe Touch 2 has left me wary of magnetic recharging systems to this day. So much was riding on it when I first bought it, and it let me down. Deep, deep down. I bought the We-Vibe from my local sex store. It was the first rechargeable vibrator I had ever bought. I’d saved up for months. When I took it home, I was impatient to charge it, as I always am with new toys. It was rumbly in a way that “first time toys” rarely are, and I could reach orgasm on every setting. The patterns were fun, and the silicone was soft in my hands. But after a month or so, the Touch broke. It wouldn’t charge anymore, and I took it back to get a refund. The attendant explained that it was probably a faulty charging port, and exchanged it for a new vibe. I charged this one, and used it through ONE charge, but after that charge was used up, the vibe wouldn’t charge again. I went to the store for a third time, frustrated and disappointed. The attendant suggested I try a different model, but I was determined to try one last time. This time, I charged the Touch, used it once, and it never turned on again. I finally gave in, and exchanged it for a different vibe entirely. Thank god for reputable sex shops, thank god for warranties, thank god for options. Continue reading “We-Vibe Touch Review”
