If you are looking for a high-quality silicone toy, then Fun Factory probably have at least one for you. I have several of their products now and I just can’t get enough of their beautiful designs, shapes and colour options. I really liked the look of the Amor when I saw it for the first time, but I wasn’t sure that I’d get much from it as a g-spot dildo, due to the size, but I thought I may just be able to find another way to use it, so I went ahead and purchased one and I’ve been loving it ever since.
The packaging was as I expected from this brand, minimalistic, simplistic and relaxed. It’s completely couple-friendly, gender-neutral and non-intimidating whilst still being somewhat luxurious. It’s a combination that can be tricky to get right, but Fun Factory have nailed it. The front of the cardboard sleeve contains an image of the Amor and underneath, a gold box is revealed. Inside that, the toy can be found alongside a user manual. It doesn’t include a storage bag, which is one of the only downsides to their products.
The Amor is made from 100% medical-grade silicone which is completely body-safe, odourless and free from both latex and phthalates. It’s hypoallergenic, non-toxic and non porous. The silicone is top-notch and wonderful, but it has quite a large amount of drag to it, which I find is a common trait with Fun Factory products. It is essential to coat the toy in water-based lubricant before use to remove this and make it more comfortable by reducing the friction. The silicone also attracts a great deal of lint, but it’s easily removable with cleaner and a quick rinse.
It is quite short at around five and half inches in total length, including the base, and has just under five inches of insertable shaft. It has around 4.7 inches of girth at the widest point around the head, but the width is consistent throughout the rest of the shaft. It has a flared base, which allows it to be used safely for anal-play, as-well as vaginal use, but it can also be used in a harness should you wish to engage in pegging. The base also doubles as a suction cup, which is surprisingly strong and sturdy.
During solo use, I ran into some difficulties. I couldn’t get a secure enough grip on the toy, because there simply wasn’t enough room to place my hands and be able to manoeuvre it in a way that would work for my body. I couldn’t seem to insert it deep enough to hit the g-spot and the one or two occasions where I did manage to make that contact, I couldn’t maintain it or stimulate it due to the lack of handle room. I tried a few times to do a gentle rocking motion, but I found that I’d just lose contact with the spot or grip on the toy, so it was more frustrating than pleasurable.
I did expect this type of scenario, so I introduced my partner, who I thought might be able to help out with this problem. If he holds onto the base, he can thrust the toy in and out in a comfortable manner, but I still wasn’t particularly feeling anything exciting going on. It might feel better for those with less g-spot experience, who don’t expect a constant, firm pressure, but for me, it just wasn’t really working out.
If you’re confused thus far, due to my mention in the beginning of this review about loving this toy since I got it, and my above description of how it didn’t work for me vaginally, then never fear, I’m about to tell you how I made it succeed in two simple words. Anal stimulation. This is the type of play that I have to be in a specific mood for and it’s not something I experiment with on a daily or even weekly basis, but when I do, I tend to prefer girth over length. This toy has a bigger girth than many of my other anal toys, so I find myself reaching for this after something thinner fairly often. It’s a fantastic toy to use just before anal sex with my partner as it relaxes the muscles enough for me to allow him entry.
Overall, I think this toy is absolutely adorable in terms of aesthetics, the shape, the size and even the colouring is great. I actually have a distaste for pink toys, after having so many of them in my collection, but I think this shade is lovely. I wasn’t disappointed in what it couldn’t provide to my g-spot, as I was expecting that sort of outcome, but I think it has the potential to be beneficial to someone else with a more sensitive spot.
