Sometimes I don’t know I need something until it is offered to me. One such thing recently was… a vibrator with my site logo on it! It’s such an obvious thing, given what I do, but it had simply never occured to me as a possibility before. But when the good folks at GFY Toy reached out and offered me a GFY custom vibrator, well, I immediately knew I needed it in my life.
Read on to learn how I got on… and to learn how you can enter to win your own custom sex toy!
Who Are GFY?
I’ll let them introduce themselves. In their words:
“Sometimes you’ve just got to ask yourself, what sort of person starts a company literally just to print people’s faces on vibrators? Well, that’s us. The heroes you never knew you needed.”– GFY
GFY stands for – yeah, you guessed it – Go Fuck Yourself. Which is, honestly, a truly hilarious name for a company that makes custom vibrators. Well played, folks. They claim to be the first company in the world making custom-printed vibes, and they make a donation to Cancer Research for every vibe sold.
You can send them a picture and they’ll use it as a basis for a toy, or you can use their nifty online design tool to create your own. They’ll print up your vibrator and ship it to you quickly and discreetly. That’s it!
Here’s how mine looks:
Cute, no? The printing is clear and has not started to rub off even though I have washed the toy several times.
If you design your own, a GFY custom vibrator costs £19.99. If they design it for you, it’s £24.99.
What’s it Like as a Vibrator?
The GFY custom vibrator is in the classic bullet vibrator shape and measures 5″ in length and 1″ in diameter at the widest point. It tapers to a rounded tip and is suitable for both vaginal and clitoral use (don’t use it anally, though, as it doesn’t have a flared base). The GFY vibe is made of hard ABS plastic, which is non-porous, body-safe, and compatible with all varieties of lube.
The single button interface is located in the base and is easy to press. You use this to switch the toy on, cycle through the patterns, and switch it off again. The GFY vibrator offers ten settings in total: two constant vibration speeds and eight patterns.
The power is pretty mediocre, which is what you’d expect from a basic bullet vibe that costs under £25. I’ve actually tried far worse at this price point, though – it’s not excessively buzzy and the hard plastic conducts the vibrations reasonably well.
If you prefer gentle to middling strength vibes, the GFY custom vibrator is a solid option. If you’re a Power Queen (or any other form of Power Royalty!) like me, though, this vibe is unlikely to hit the spot.
You’ll need one AA battery for your GFY vibe, which is handily included. I’ve had about 2 hours’ testing time out of mine so far and it’s still going strong!
Honestly, I think my GFY toy is going to be a desk ornament rather than a vibrator I reach for to get off. It’s just not really powerful enough to become a nightstand staple for me. But that’s okay, because it makes me smile every time I look at it.
Are you looking for playful gag gift ideas for your partner, a joke present for your bestie, souvenirs for your hen party, or even promotional items if you work in the adult industry? If so, a GFY vibrator is a fun and different option!
Win a GFY Custom Vibrator
We’ve just launched the fundraising campaigns for Smutathon 2021, the 12 hour charity writing marathon that I founded back in 2017. This year’s event takes place on Saturday 6 November. We will be supporting Trans Lifeline in the US and Gendered Intelligence in the UK. These trans-led charities are dedicated to supporting the transgender community, which is so important in this time of rampant transphobia.
As a token of our appreciation, everyone who donates at least £10 between now and midnight on November 6th will be entered into a prize draw. We have a bunch of amazing things to give away, including a GFY custom vibrator with your choice of design, plus erotica anthologies, sex toys, event tickets, and much more! Each £10 gets you an entry, so if you donate £100 you’ll get ten entries.
Thanks to GFY Toy for sending me this custom vibrator in exchange for an honest review, as well as for their support of Smutathon 2021! All views, as always, are mine.
