The Stronic Eins, Explained

2

Have you been curious about the Stronic, the new toy from Fun Factory that looks like a vibrator but instead pulses and thrusts? Many customers have been! The Stronic comes in two shapes, the original Eins (pictured above) and the butt-friendly Zwei. Our own Sarah Sloane reviewed the Stronic Eins, to give you a better idea of what this toy is all about.

“True fact: I dislike vibrators. They generally numb me out. They don’t really get all my juices flowing, and frankly, if they get me to orgasm, they do it too fast for my personal tastes. In the past, my go-to toys have been things that press in and fill me up — glass dildos, the Pure Wand, and so on. I’d pretty much despaired of ever finding a moving toy that I’d fall in lust with — until the Stronic arrived!

The Stronic works on a whole different principle — instead of vibrating, it pulses, which feels like anything from a tapping massage (when aimed at my G-Spot) to a rocking shallow thrust (when aimed further into the vagina). It’s a unique sensation, and if you don’t like traditional vibrators, it might just be ideal.

I took it through its paces a few times, and figured out a couple of great ways to use it. You can, of course, use it perpendicular to the body (“straight in”), and it’ll give some great thrusting as well as movement to the inner labia and indirect sensation to the clit. I really love it angled down (towards my lower back), so that the shaft rocks against my clit and between my labia — and at the strongest patterns, it provides a yummy pounding sensation. And when I want a G-Spot session, angling the tip so that it bumps against my G-Spot is ideal. (For those who want a little extra against the clit, throw an O-Wow ring onto the Stronic for dual stimulation sensation). 

I definitely recommend lots of your favorite water based lube with this toy — it lets the pulsator slide against your body in really sensual ways, and keeps you from feeling rubbed the wrong way. I also recommend taking a few exploratory trips with this toy in lots of positions, because what works for you may not be the obvious choices.

All in all, this is an ideal toy for the person for whom vibes aren’t a great fit — but it’s also great for the sex toy connoisseur who wants a toy that is truly unique to add to their pleasure collection. With the click-n-charge charger (which also works with other Fun Factory toys), and the two year warranty, this is one toy that will keep you coming back for more for a long, long, time!”

Going to the Mat with the We-Vibe 3

2

by thepleasurechest

The new We-Vibe 3 is 40% stronger than its famous predecessor. Can you handle the difference? We asked web department heavyweight Lillian to wrestle with this question. She got in the ring with the We-Vibe 3 and emerged victorious…

I was very excited to get to try out the We-Vibe 3.  I plugged the handy charger/case right in once I got home so that in 24 hours, I could take it for a test drive.  The charging station is one of my favorite things about this product—I can carry it in my purse without the toy banging around and collecting lint, and it even has a spot for the remote control!  The toy itself is beautifully designed and made of top-notch materials. I give it top marks in overall presentation and storage design.

"I ended up grinding so violently that I broke the bed."

For me at least, the We-Vibe 3 is not a hands-free toy.  My G-Spot is closer to the vaginal opening than average (about ¾ of an inch in, compared to 2-3 inches in), so inserting the toy fully misses my G-Spot almost entirely.  I need to hold it to keep the G-Spot end in place.  The external end is much stronger than that of its predecessor, and once I started using my hand to vary the pressure against my clit, the sensation really improved.  Grinding against my pillow, comforter or partner with it in was even better, although I still had to keep a hand on the toy to keep it from falling out.  I ended up grinding so violently that I broke the bed (the third one I’ve broken this way), which, though definitely a sign of a good time, is something I try to avoid.

As far as dual stimulation is concerned, nothing is going to knock the Pure Wand and Form 2 combo out of 1st place for me.  The We-Vibe 3 probably isn’t going to make it into my regular rotation of masturbation tools, but it’s a great addition to frottage and I definitely look forward to wearing it under my harness during my next pegging session.
