[Toy Review] Fun Factory x Lovehoney Cobra Libre II Masturbator

My lovely partner is very patient and accommodating when it comes to putting various things on his genitals so I can bring honest reviews to you all. He’s also, over the years, got pretty good at identifying quickly whether something will work for him. He was not hopeful about the Cobra Libre II masturbator from Fun Factory and Lovehoney. Even so, we went in with an open mind and gave it a good go.

Was he proven right or wrong? Read on to find out…

Cobra Libre II

The Cobra Libre II is a masturbator for penis owners made by Fun Factory in collaboration with Lovehoney. This version is availavle in an exclusive colourway that is described as “blue” but is really more of a rich sea green.

The Cobra Libre II is a penetratable masturbator with two motors. It is designed to deliver focused stimulation to the head of the penis. The main casing of the toy is ABS plastic, and the sleeve section is stretchy silicone. It is fully waterproof and rechargeable via the included USB cable.

The Good Bits

Well, the materials are body-safe, but that’s really more “bare minimum” than “selling point.”

The Cobra Libre II’s motors are decently powerful and rumbly (though, as we’ll see in a moment, badly placed.) The battery power is excellent, lasting for well over 2 hours on the top setting, and the Cobra Libre II isn’t excessively loud.

Honestly that’s about all I can think to say is good about it.

The Bad Bits

The Cobra Libre II’s actual opening is surprisingly small. The advertising copy says it’s supposed to accommodate 3.5″, but that’s really only going to be true for folks with penises on the slimmer side. Anyone who is even a little bit girthy is likely to find that their penis simply… doesn’t really fit.

And can we talk about that motor placement!? When I turned the toy on, it felt pretty powerful in my hand. But when I stuck my fingers into the opening, the vibes felt a lot weaker inside. This is pretty poor form for something that is designed to be penetrated.

When my partner tried using it on his penis, he confirmed that the vibrations feel very weak when you’re actually using it. If your hand is getting buzzed more than your penis, it’s a poorly designed sex toy.

Finally, the controls are confusing. You press the red “FUN” button to turn it on and off, which is fine, but the up and down controls to cycle through the patterns are really weird.

The + button cycles through the settings one way, but the – button always takes you back to the same setting (the highest constant vibration speed) and then down through the other two constant speeds, no matter where you start from. So if you accidentally skip the setting you like, it can take a lot of button presses to get back to it.

The Verdict

We’d have been seriously disappointed with this product had we paid the full retail price of £129.99. I asked Mr CK to summarise his overall experience of using it and he said “a waste of time and a perfectly good boner.”

If you like very concentrated and relatively weak vibrations around just the head of your penis, you might find it a winner. But if you prefer pleasure along the whole of the shaft (or need very powerful vibrations) then don’t bother.

[Toy Review] Fun Factory Volta

I’ve lusted after Fun Factory toys over the years, but never actually managed to get my hands on one. So I was super excited when my friend LSB held a sex toy sale and offered me the Volta at a bargain price! The Fun Factory Volta is the toy that the Satisfyer Power Flower was inspired by shamelessly ripped off from. Having loved the knock-off, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the real thing!

Meet the Fun Factory Volta

The Fun Factory Volta is an external vibrator with a shaft that splits into two “tongues”. The effect is that, when the vibrations are turned on, the tongues flicker against the clit or anywhere else you care to place the toy.

The Volta’s body is made of soft and body-safe silicone, and the ergonomic loop design handle is ABS plastic. The toy is rechargeable via a magnetic cable (included), and you get about 90 minutes of use out of a 2-hour charge. It is also fully waterproof, making for easy cleaning (and also bath/shower play, if that’s your jam).

The Fun Factory Volta is 7.5 inches in length and weighs in at 190g. It offers six intensities of constant vibration, and six different pulsing patterns.

How do those little flicky tongues feel? Is that really pleasurable!?

Dear God, yes.

The Fun Factory Volta is powered by Fun Factory’s signature strong, rumbly motor. The result is that the vibrations travel up the shaft and make the silicone tongues rapidly flicker. It’s kinda hard to explain, so I made a video!

It feels fucking incredible. It’s surprisingly versatile, too. For some reason, the left side of my clit is my sweet spot, so I like angling the Fun Factory Volta so that it laps at my clit from that side. But you can also use it in a straight-down position, or run the tips over your labia, or draw circles with it over your clit, or or or…

You can hold it so that the flickering tips just touch you for gentle stimulation, or apply more pressure to get sensations over a wider area.

You can also use the Fun Factory Volva if you have a penis! My partner hasn’t tried it yet, but we tested this theory when I reviewed the Power Flower and can confirm it works. You can either hug the head of the penis with the Volta’s tips, or run it along the shaft (and/or balls, if you’re into that).

Yes, this toy is amazing. Because it’s so versatile, I like using it for a long, luxurious wank session that slowly escalates from a gentle tease up to a quivering, sheet-soaking orgasm.

Tip: the tongues can feel a little pokey if you’re not well lubricated, so use plenty of water-based lube.

User Interface

The Volta operates on a simple 3-button interface. There’s an on/off button, and plus/minus buttons to scroll through the patterns. The buttons make a pleasing click when you press them, and the symbols on them light up. Ideal if you’re playing in a space with dim lighting!

Weirdly, whichever pattern you’re using, if you press the “minus” button it will take you back to the strongest constant vibration setting. This is kind of an odd interface and takes some getting used to. But, as someone for whom powerful constant vibrations are always a winner, I can’t say I hate it.

Final thoughts

After having played with this toy a few times, I feel confident in saying this: it’s the best clitoral vibrator I’ve tried this year, and probably one of the best I’ve ever tried. Seriously, it’s that good.

You can get the Fun Factory Volta from Lovehoney for £99.99, or Shevibe for $139.99. It comes in pink, black, and turquoise, though not all stores have all colours available.

If you’re on the fence about this toy, get one! Your bits will thank you.
