I was contacted by Fun Factory and asked if we were willing to check their toy for Sharevibe pairs.
This is basically a strapless strap that can be used for pegging, with the shorter end fitting inside the female and holding the pelvic floor muscles in place, and the longer end being used for the actual pegging.
Unlike most strapless strap ons, this one vibrates and has in its base a removable rechargeable vibrator, the vibrations are variable.
Packaging and Inside the box
The Fun Factory Sharevibe has some excellent quality packaging inside the box. This obviously demonstrates what’s inside the box and provides a fundamental explanation of how it works so that when you get back you can be sure of what to expect.
There’s a tasteful picture of a pair on the package, as with some other Fun Factory toys.
This isn’t a tacky image of a naked women attempting to sell it to you, unlike some other products.
I think this makes it a much more appealing product as I find myself putting off a toy with garish colors and tacky half-naked women.
You get a pleasant transparent instruction guide inside the box as shown below, the Sharevibe and the recharge cable for the USB.
Sharevibe is made of silicone of the highest quality medical grade. This looks beautiful and smooth to the touch and on the sharevibe there are no noticeable seams that may feel rough when used.
The silicone is beautiful and flexible, making it a dream to use.
The vibrator at the base of the sharevibe is made of plastic and a simple one-button operation is available.
Use and design
The sharevibe’s design is very similar to many other strapless strap ons on the market. It has a brief, slightly bulbous end that suits within females and a lengthy, slender end that is used to peg.
When we tried it, the bit that fitted in me at first felt slightly big, I guess it’s so easier for the woman to grip on when it’s used.
It’s the Sharevibe, because it’s mostly solid silicone, it’s not mega heavy but it’s heavy enough.
The man’s (or other woman’s) dildo end is pretty slim and neat and thin. That’s why I’d say it would be useful for any couple who are new to pegging and want to attempt it without getting in the manner of the harness. Not having a harness makes you feel closer to your partner.
The vibrator is between the two ends at the base of the toy and with its single-button procedure it is simple to switch on and off. Just hold down the button for 2-3 seconds to turn it off. Click the button until it does what you want it to do to switch between the different vibration environments.
I discovered the sharevibe quite convenient to wear, and when they were switched on you could feel the vibrations straight through the toy, the shape of the smaller end meant the vibrations could definitely be felt against the g-spot.
I think the vibrations are where the problem was for me, I found that I couldn’t hold the toy in place securely when I tried to use the sharevibe to peg the vibrations on and ended up having to hold it in place with my hands. For me, this has spoiled the experience a little.
But when it wasn’t vibrating, I could keep it in position. I believe the vibrations where what made it harder to maintain as the size and shape of it would imply that it would remain otherwise even with the little bit of weight it has.
When used, the sharevibe does not feel chunky.
I feel that not getting a harness is useful because it means you can just grab it while playing and use it without having to put a harness on and take a harness off meaning that pegging can be more instinctive than planning during a workout.
Everyone knows that sex is more enjoyable when things’ just occur’ From the point of perspective of my partners, he discovered that the dildo end felt very smooth and said that when it was being used he could feel the vibrations, he enjoyed that feeling.
Cleaning and Lube
This is a silicone sex toy, so you should only use water-based lube with it and prevent storing it with other silicone toys as it may respond with other silicone products and melt. No one wants to have a sex toy melted.
I discovered that if I only used the pegging end lube, I could hold the toy better, lubing up both ends made it all slip and nothing wanted to remain where it was supposed to be.
The vibrator is removable, but it won’t let go of it readily, I had to wiggle it for a while before lastly letting it go, cleaning it up is best to remove the vibrator so you can clean the recess where it was and carefully clean the vibrator.
I always advise you to clean sex toys with some super hot soapy water and then use some top quality sex toy cleaner like the lovehoney Fresh to make sure all bugs are removed from the toy.
Both sections of the sharevibe are waterproof and can be separated for cleaning.
Sharevibe charging The small vibrator in the sharevibe can be recharged and comes with a USB recharging cable, most people have plugs that you can use to plug a USB into the mains or you can plug it into a computer and recharge it. For a complete charge, it requires 2-4 hours and comes with some charge on it.
If you want, you can remove the vibrator for charging, but you don’t need it because the connector is on the outside of the toy and simple to attach without removing it.
I really like the Sharevibe concept, the thought I was really looking forward to attempting was to be able to peg my partner without having to mess around with a harness.
I was really enthusiastic about the concept to vibrate!
So when I was unable to hold it properly in place without using my hand when it was vibrating, it was a little disappointing to me.
This toy has lots of positive effects although the dildo end for pegging is just the right size and it sits in the right position when worn. This means that it feels very natural to stick with it when it is not vibrating.
No harness means that during sex there is no mess around and things can be much more natural. When turned on, the vibrations feel good and the sharevibe shape implies the vibrations press against the g-spot.
