In fact, the first thing I noticed about German manufacturer Fun Factory’s Free Vibes stimulator is its shape. It’s like a silicone egg with a crevice/lip at the top, which can make for some interesting variations in use.
With some very fast speeds and interesting vibration patterns, Free Vibes can be used on various parts of the body. The shape makes movement and rolling easy, and fingers or other objects could be put into the “lip.” As such, this is a great vibrator to use with a partner.
As for me, I was using it on my own, and enjoying the faster, harder end of the vibration/pattern spectrum. The design makes it easy for the device to fit into my hand, and the vibrations are pretty consistent throughout all of the silicone area – which is plentiful, and thick.
Even used solo, the “lip” can be manipulated and easily “latch” onto the gurly bits or provide direct stimulation in that area. With the proper placement, some hands-free enjoyment is possible. In general, it covers a lot of surface area for something that fits into the palm of my hand.
Also on the up side, Free Vibes is waterproof and very easy to clean with soap and water. It comes in several different colours – mine is a bright lime green – and there is a very large, satin pouch for discreet and classy carrying.
However, I wish there were more instructions – or any instructions at all – concerning the use of the device. There are just a few suggestive illustrations on the outside of the box, and that’s it. The charger comes in a separate box and attaches to the bottom of the Free Vibes magnetically – again, no instructions, and it took me a while to figure out exactly where the charger was supposed to go. The first time charging also took a long while, and the charge did not last as long as I thought it would. I am never totally certain I have turned it off properly, and also to get it started you really have to push the + button hard a few times.
Despite these technical flaws, the unique design of the Free Vibes and its stimulating power make this vibrator versatile and satisfying.
