Fun Factory G2 Stranger

The G2 Stranger

The G2 Stranger was my first toy made by Fun Factory. I had heard lots about the quality and design of Fun Factory toys, so I was excited to receive this addition to my toy collection, even if it is one of the older Fun Factory models. This toy has inspired me to try out some more of the Fun Factory range, as it has several qualities I liked. It does have a few elements that I didn’t really get along with, but I’m hopeful that these have been improved in the new Fun Factory products.The toy arrives in the standard cream and red Fun Factory packaging. There is a window, revealing the toy within the box, which is held in place by a clam shell style case. On the side of the case there are a few pictures suggesting that the toy is waterproof, silicone, battery powered, and with steadily increasing vibrations via a dial. There are also three other images with crosses through them; one of a nose, one of an ear, and one of a buttock. Now I’m guessing that these suggest the toy is odour free, is quiet, and not intended for anal, rather than isn’t intended for insertion into the nasal canal, or ear. The back of the box opens up with a magnetic latch, and on the cardboard flaps there is further product information.

The Stranger is a high quality silicone vibrator, that isn’t intended to appear as either a phallic shape or animal. To me, the toy looks like a tentacle shape, which has been cutesified through its candy violet colouring. The toy is 8.5 inches in length with 6 inches of insertable shaft. The girth is wider than some toys, starting at 3.5 inches in circumference and slowly graduating to 5.25 inches of girth. The tip of the toy is slightly curved and is designed to stimulate the g-spot. Further down the front of the shaft there are eight raised bumps, which get larger towards the dial control. On the back of the toy there are two ridges, and the brand name moulded into the silicone. The silicone is rather velvety, and produces a little drag when rubbed against dry skin. The motor of the toy can be found towards the bottom of the insertable shaft, leaving the rest of the shaft flexible.

At the base of the toy there is a removable battery compartment, with the dial controller on it. The battery compartment can be difficult to remove. You have to firmly press down in several places while pulling the bottom off. I wasn’t able to open the battery compartment, but my partner managed it ok. The toy takes two AA batteries, which are easy to pop in once you get the chamber open. Even though the compartment was very difficult to remove, it does at least reassure me that the toy is waterproof.

The vibrations can be turned on by turning the dial clockwise or anti clockwise. The vibrations will start at a medium strength, and the more you turn the dial the stronger they get. The toys vibrations aren’t overly strong compared to some, but they travel through the shaft well. The vibration motor is situated towards the base of the toy, and they travel towards the tip; some of the power behind the vibrations is lost the further up the shaft they travel. I’m not really that keen on the dial controller; I’ve found that while using the toy you can accidently move the dial, thus changing the vibration strength, and sometimes even turning it off. It takes a bit of patience and fine tuning when selecting the vibration strength you desire. I’ve also found when the toy is resting on a surface while turned off, that if the surface has any strong vibrations travel through it, these vibrations can trigger the vibrator to turn on.

When using the toy I didn’t find the girth much of a challenge, but I would still recommend using additional lubricant. The silicone seems to soak up natural moistures as well as lubes. When the toy is lubricated the tip is easily inserted. During insertion you can feel the raised bumps stimulate the front of the vaginal wall. I’ve found that the tip sometimes manages to hit my G-spot, but it’s not enough to cause me to experience an orgasm. The shape and size of the toy feels very comfortable when inserted, and does offer the sensation of fullness that some softer silicone vibrators lack. I think this toy would’ve worked better for me as an insertable toy if the vibrations were stronger towards the tip, and if the dial controller wasn’t so sensitive.

The toy is great for external massage. The raised bumps feel very relaxing as they rub against the vulva, leading my body to become more aroused. The vibrations from the toy aren’t strong enough to cause me to experience a clitoral orgasm, but the sensations are still enjoyable. The tip of the toy also doesn’t have enough control; due to how flexible the silicone is, meaning that it was difficult to get pinpoint stimulation.

Cleaning the Stranger is no problem as it is waterproof. The silicone does attract lint easily, so make sure you place it in the storage box or a bag. The box is rather large, so you’re probably better off storing it in something else.

I do like the Stranger’s shape, and how the raised tentacle-sucker-like bumps internally stimulate the vaginal entrance, and externally massage the vulva. It’s just a shame that the dial is so sensitive, as a better vibrator controller would have made this toy a success, even though it doesn’t stimulate my G-spot or clitoris as much as I would like. It’s not always about reaching climax when using a sex toy, but I still feel that this shape might work better for some. So if you are looking for a good quality, soft silicone, textured vibrator with moderately strong vibrations and a somewhat filling girth, then this is a toy worth considering.

I purchased this vibrator from Nice n Naughty for my Fun Factory G2 Stranger review.
