The Stronic Eins, Explained

2

by thepleasurechest

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!”

Masturbation for Better Menopause

It turns out that vibrators are good for something other than making people happy and curing hysteria. Dr. Mary Jane Minkin, of Yale University School of Medicine, has been recommending the use of a vibrator to her menopausal patients who suffer from vaginal dryness. In an interview with The Huffington Post, Dr. Minkin explains that vibration increases pelvic blood flow, which can help boost vaginal moisture. In particular, she recommends the We-Vibe 3 (pictured above) to her patients – and we have to agree. Says Minkin,

“I recommend my patients use a vibrator three to four times a week, but as Mae West said,’Too much of a good thing can be wonderful!’”

That’s a prescription we can get behind.

What’s Your Greatest Strength? Tell Us and Win an Aneros Evi (Updated 8/16)

Update: Congratulations to Secretly Sensuous, who was randomly chosen to win the Aneros Evi. Thanks to everyone who shared your greatest strengths with us. You can check out all of the entries below. 

Want to get strong while getting off? You can.

The Aneros Evi is designed for instant gratification. Just wear the Evi while you do your Kegel exercises, positioned so that the outer arm is poised to hit your clitoris. As you tense and release, the Evi rocks up and down, so that the inner bulb pushes against the G-spot, and the outer arm rubs the clit. The stronger you get, the harder you can go!

That’s not all you can do with the Evi. Try turning it upside down for a fuller feeling during oral, or wearing it underneath a harness for more sensation while you strap on. You could even hold your favorite vibe against it. Evi’s smooth silicone body transmits vibration beautifully.

Excited about the Evi?

Just leave a comment below telling us about your greatest strength. Are you the best kisser in your county? Can you win any argument without making your opponent feel bad? Do you bake the best lemon cake your friends have ever tasted? (Please send us the recipe.) If so, we want to know.

One winner will be selected at random, at 10am PST on Friday, 8/16. Be sure to leave an email address, so that we can contact you if you win.

The unique shape makes the toy functional as well as fancy: you can move the Progasm back and forth using only the muscles in your butt! Also, its non-porous medical-grade plastic makes it ideal for sharing.

How To Win An Aneros Progasm
