I have spent years looking for a good strap-on, but there are so many options out there! I had a hard time finding a brand I liked and felt I could trust to be a good quality long lasting toy. Most strap-ons are big and bulky made out of material that is stiff and uncomfortable to wear. Also most are relatively straight and will not fit the natural contour of your body, not to mention for vaginal use most looked too long for starting out. Everything I found was too intimidating to find intriguing. Then about a month ago I found a brand that I thought I would try out.
The brand name is Fun Factory, which alone made me wonder how “fun” these toys would be. I started looking more it to these fun brand toys and they were amazing!!! The material was so different from any other toy I have ever looked at. It was so soft and malleable, yet it is sturdy enough to put any amount of pressure where you want to have it. I had mostly looked at vibrators, and let me tell you I am sold on getting all my toys from Fun Factory. Although they didn’t have any strap-ons, but they did have a few couples toys that were similar to a strap on. The one I found to be the most welcoming was called Share.
Share has 3 sizes the Share, Share XL, and Share XS. All are double dildos, perfect for lesbians or for couples looking for a good anal toy that can be used to stimulate both parties. Depending on your comfort level, what you are using Share for, and your anatomy will help you best choose what size you will want to purchase.
All are made of 100% medical grade silicone; this is rare to find in the United States. Most silicone toys are made or assembled in China, they have very low standards for their products and when they make something that is “100%” silicone it turns out they are about 12% silicone! Fun Factory is not only based out of Europe, but all of their toys are assembled in Europe so you know that you don’t have to worry about the standards getting mixed up. The material is so high quality you can actually used a silicone based lubricant with it! This is unheard of! Being such a high quality silicone also makes them hypoallergenic and unusually easy to clean, you can boil them if you want to, and it won’t mess with the feel of the material! It is very soft and flexible, yet still very firm. This allows them to adapt seamlessly to the shape of the body while providing satisfying stimulation to both partners.
The Shape is unlike anything I have ever seen before. One end is shaped to sit in the vaginal cavity with a curve that rests against the G-spot as well as right above the pelvic bone, so that while in use it provides optimal internal stimulation, while the bottom is slender so the vaginal opening can close around it, making it easier to keep in while using. The joint between the two insertable ends is flat and flexible so it can rest flush against the women’s skin. The joint rises up and forms a dull point that rests on the clitoris providing external stimulation for both partners, as it would rub against the partner it is being used on. Depending on what size you use will depend on what the dildo part looks like, but they all have a curve that will provide G-spot stimulation for the other partner whether they are male or female.
With the original Share the dildo end is slender and shaped more like the male anatomy and is roughly 6.3 inches long and 1.38 inches in diameter. The part worn in the vagina is 3.4 inches long and 1.5 inches in diameter. The shape allows for not only vaginal stimulation but also anal, you don’t have to use a harness with Share but the base opens up the option. The natural shape makes for a good hold and a comfortable handling. If you are looking for something smooth and natural I recommend trying this one out.
The Share XL dildo is longer and has elevated ridges that make it slightly larger; it is 7.1 inches long and 1.37 inches in diameter. The part worn in the vagina is 3.4 inches long and 1.49 inches in diameter. The additional curves create more stimulation for the individual it is being used on as well as for the individual that is wearing it. The ridges also create a more defined structure that will bend less, helping create the added stimulation. The extra ridge on the vaginally worn edge also helps to keep it in more easily allowing for an added sense of control.
The Share XS is the smallest of the share family the dildo end is only 5.5 inches in length and 0.89 inches in diameter. The vaginally worn end is still about the same size at the other two at 3.9 inches in length and 1.37 inches in diameter. Share XS is perfect for beginners you can get used to controlling the toy and having to hold something inside of you. The end that is used as the dildo is smaller and more slender then the other shares, letting the individual get used to having the foreign object inside of them. With the smaller end it is ideal for anal use. It has the perfect curve to massage the male G-spot. Then once use to the size you can begin to move up in size.
Share is a great way to extend pleasure and create a greater sexual bond, not only for lesbian couples, but any couple that is willing to try it out! You can cool it in ice water or warm it in boiling water; it is bath and shower friendly. The vaginal end is easy to insert and easy to keep in once you get comfortable with the movement and the feel of the having it inside of you. As intimidating as the Share can appear it is a great toy to add to your collection, or the perfect way to start a collection! (I also recommend looking at the Fun Factory smart balls if you are worried about how strong your Kigali muscles are, they get a real workout when using Share.)
