Add the detachable silicone band, and the toy wraps around the entire vulva, transmitting rumbling vibration to the inner labia and the often-neglected clitoral legs.

The Magic Wand Rechargeable Has Arrived!

0

by Chelsea

magic wand rechargeable

At last, the Magic Wand Rechargeable is here to make your dreams come true! A rechargeable, four-speed update of the bestselling Magic Wand Original (also known as the Hitachi), this powerful massager is even stronger than its predecessor! It also boasts a non-porous silicone head — goodbye, vinyl! — and four thrilling vibration patterns that you can use at any speed. Plus, you can use it with or without it 7ft cord, so you never have to worry about running out of charge!

A couple of lucky staff members each got to take one home before they hit the market. Kate said:

“The Magic Wand Original has been my all-time favorite vibrator for years.When I heard about this new model, I was equal parts thrilled and distrustful. What if it wasn’t as powerful? What if the vibrations weren’t as ridiculously deep? What if the new non-porous silicone head was super hard and uncomfortable?

I didn’t have to worry. The makers of the Magic Wand have a dedicated fan base to answer to — it’s been around since 1968! — and I, for one, did not feel let down.”

Mary added:

“Playing with the Rechargeable instantly reminded me why the Magic Wand has been the best selling vibrator for so many decades. The vibration is unmistakable. The box touts “penetrating vibrations” and that is the truth. It vibrated my whole pelvis in rumbling pleasure. The head is much softer, smoother, and doesn’t chafe like the old version. Having 4 speeds to choose from was a big plus over the plug in. This wand has also solved the problem I have with all rechargeables. I love rechargeable toys but I’m lazy about charging them. Inevitably they run out of juice when I’m about to peak. The Magic Wand Rechargeable can be used while charging! Genius!

My partner was very interested in this toy, which is unusual because he doesn’t normally care for vibration. This is the only vibrator that he’s tried that he was able to orgasm with without any other stimulation. It may not seem like a men’s toy but cocks seem to respond just as well to the deep vibrations as vulvas.”

We say: yessssssssssssssssss.

Want to Win a Fun Factory ShareVibe? Share a Story.

by Chelsea

Update: Congratulations to Mindy, who won the ShareVibe! BOOM! 

We’re giving away a Fun Factory ShareVibe!

ShareVibe

Fun Factory took our favorite strapless strap-on, updated the design, and added a powerful vibrator. (We’re swooning.) When you insert the smaller end of the Sharevibe, the sharp curve in its flexible silicone body presses the toy firmly against your G-spot, for extra intense sensation while you play. A more pronounced ridge at the base provides clitoral stimulation for the wearer, and the receiver can enjoy a smoother, slimmer shaft. Both partners will love the super strong, rechargeable, water-submersible vibrator, which boasts three speeds and two patterns. If you’d like to share your Sharevibe, you can pop the vibrator out before you boil the silicone toy.

In her glowing review of the ShareVibe, Sarah Sloane said,

“Yet another amazing toy from Fun Factory. I swear, if they keep doing this, I’ll have to convert my whole house to a Fun Factory shrine!”

“Another Amazing Toy”: Sarah Sloane Reviews the Fun Factory ShareVibe

0

by Chelsea

ShareVibe

Sarah Sloane, sex educator extraordinaire and manager of our Chicago store, reviewed the new Fun Factory ShareVibe. Here’s her review: 

Yet another amazing toy from Fun Factory. I swear, if they keep doing this, I’ll have to convert my whole house to a Fun Factory shrine!

The ShareVibe is the newest version of the Share strapless strap-on, updated to include a more streamlined shape and strong vibration. As an FYI, the Share is my all time favorite wearable dildo, both because the shape of the shorter end fits so well into the vagina and because the connection is flat and slightly cupped, so it cradles the vulva and delivers indirect stimulation to the clitoris. 

The ShareVibe definitely left me feeling like they made some great changes! While my Share will never go out of my top-ten rotation, the ShareVibe adds some great features. Obviously, the addition of a very strong vibrating bullet (with patterns!) is a big positive – even more when you consider that the bullet can be removed from the ShareVibe and used solo, AND that it’s rechargeable with the Fun Factory Click-n-Charge magnetic charger. But let’s not overlook some of the other big improvements…

First, the ShareVibe is much more firm, both from a penetration standpoint and in terms of the shape of the toy. It curves up against the clitoris more firmly, which may give some folks a better angle (amazing for missionary-style and other face-to-face positions); this also delivers a bit more vibration to the clitoris than it might otherwise offer. 

Second, the longer end of the ShareVibe does not have a flared “head”, so it is ideal for folks who are beginners to anal play or who don’t like additional bumps and ridges on their toys (and for those folks, take a peek at the Share XL, which will fit your needs very well). 

Third, the bump on the connecting section allows for more direct clitoral stimulation, both from the rocking and thrusting of the toy as well as from the vibration.

Who is not going to love this? Folks who want more flexibility (for thrusting at right angles, for example) may find that the Sharevibe doesn’t work as well for their thrusting. Additionally, people that are looking for something realistic won’t be as pleased with this one.
