|Yooo ~||Fun Factory|
|Love It Rating|
From the moment it arrived, it looked like, well… Fun. Fun Factory really has their own brand of packaging. Its not classy-elegant like Lelo, yet its not trashy-cheap like others either. The sturdy, silver metallic box with red trim is small and excitingly colored with pictures of different colored Yooos’ and bubbles. The top and side portion are cut-out, allowing the Yooo to be seen in its clear, recloseable plastic clamshell. Inside the box was a multi-language instruction manual and a pamphlet containing other Fun Factory products. The “click ’n’ charge” charger was included in a separate matching box, and is compatible with other “click-n-charge” models.
When I first touched the Yooo, I was surprised at how plush and squishy the balls were. I had expected it to be silicone covered plastic, but instead the silicone has a decent amount of squeeze that makes it very comfortable for everything from a neck massage to intimate play.
The silicone itself is very smooth, with a moderate amount of drag, and comes over half-way up the third ball. There, the matte, white, ABS-plastic cap punctuates the control panel. There is a nearly invisible seam that runs completely around the underside of the balls, that I was not even able to feel with my fingers, let alone in use.
There are three balls. The top one houses the controls and muffles the vibrations from the other two balls. It is perfectly palm-sized, at about the size of a golf-ball, and makes manipulating the vibrator easy. The second ball is slightly smaller than the top, and the third ball is the smallest of all, at approximately the size of a ping-pong ball.
On this initial inspection, I noticed that simply running my fingers over the control panel (without pushing anything) caused the control panel to light up. An excellent feature for night-time play! At this point I was completely tempted to turn the unit on and check out the patterns, but I just managed hold myself back, as the Yooo requires charging before the first use. The manual stated this would take near 6 hours for the first charge, with subsequent charges requiring less time. Happily, I found that it took only 4.
Charging is a simple affair. Plug the charger into the wall, and then line up the charger to the “FUN” logo on the center of the control panel. Because it is magnetic, the points will automatically align themselves. A red light will illuminate to indicate that the surfaces are properly aligned. Although the only issue I found was that if the Yooo is bumped or moves during charging, it can cause the charger to slide from its alignment, so be sure to place where it won’t be disturbed for several hours. Charging is complete when the face is illuminated white and the red “charging” indicator is off.
Yay! Now its time to play.
There are three buttons on the control panel, situated in a triangle-shape, with the “FUN” logo in the middle. The button on the left ( + ) will power the unit when held for two seconds. Each subsequent push will increase the power. Holding the button will cause the power to escalate quickly from the lowest setting to the highest setting. Once the highest setting is reached, hold for one second to access the pulse patterns, and push to scroll through them.
The button on the right ( - ) will decrease the vibration levels. If held, it will quickly descend from the highest level to the lowest level. From the lowest level, one ensuing push will power the unit off. Unfortunately, there is no “emergency” off, and the ( - ) control will only decrease the power, not move backwards through the pulse patterns.
So this brings us to the last button, the ( * ) control on the top. When held, it will access a super high level of vibration. I love the power that this button creates. When pushed again, it will return you to the previous level or pattern. A con from this button is that the manual states play time can be reduced to as a minimum of 30 minutes in constant orgasm mode. And the buttons can be a bit of a pain to manipulate as they require a firm push. On the other hand, this is sometimes a benefit, as it keeps me from accidentally changing the settings.
SPEEDS: there are 8 distinct speeds, starting from a deep low-frequency rumble increasing up to a high-frequency penetrating buzz. Each ball is at the same speeds, as they cannot be independently controlled.
(SB= small ball, LB= large ball)
1.) rolling rollercoaster low to high, and side to side from each ball simulating movement
SB 123456787654321 123456787654321
LB 123456787654321 123456787654321
2.) surging rolling rollercoaster low to high, smaller ball going even higher
SB 123456787654321 123456787654321 123456787654321
LB 123456654321 123456654321 123456654321
3.) high-medium rumble/flutter (faster than a pulse)
4.) high rumble/flutter
*.) Orgasm mode: super high and powerful. High-frequency with deep rumble
The vibrations from Yooo are awesome! They are incredibly strong, similar to the Fun Factory Delight, and feature a high-frequency rumble. Admittedly, I am someone who is not easily impressed by external vibrators. Don’t get me wrong, I love them, but too often I find they just aren’t powerful enough and I end up switching to an electric vibe to finish. But with the Yooo, there is no need. It really packs a punch! This is probably in part due to each of the balls having its own motor…uh huh, two motors.
And this brings us back to my initial question; what the heck to do with it? Well, the possibilities are limited only by your imagination. However, I do have a few suggestions to get you started: (to lubricate, use only water-based lubes)
-Give your partner (or yourself) a back and neck massage. Yes, its strong enough.
-Put the head of his penis between the balls and turn on to the rolling pattern.
-Put one ball on his penis and one on his scrotum while giving oral sex.
-Match up Yooo’s balls with the underside of his balls. Male motorboat?
-Place one of Yooo’s balls under his balls, and use the other to massage his perineum.
-Twist the toy so the balls swirl around your nipples. Wowza!
-Run the balls slowly up and down on either side of your labia. Tease!
-Place the Yooo up and down, with one ball on the mons and one on the clit. My favorite!
-Place one ball on the clit and the other just inside your entrance. And try it with your legs closed around it. Hands free for reading!
-Place the ball inside and use the other to massage the perineum.
Because each of the balls has its own motor, the patterns are more unique and more effective than standard vibrators. So be sure to try each of these placements using different patterns (especially the rolling pattern, which simulates movement). I guess what I learned is that there isn’t one right way to use this, rather, there is no wrong way!
Cleaning is a breeze with the Yooo. Simply wipe with toy cleaner or mild soap and warm water. Be mindful, however, not to get water near the control panel as Yooo is not waterproof. To sanitize, wipe with a 10% bleach solution and allow to dry. Although Yooo is not a lint magnet, I still suggest storing in a toy pouch with other silicone toys.
If you would like to try Yooo, it is available at Edenfantasys for only $119.00.
