Fun Factory G5 Tiger G-Spot Vibrator

Fun Factory G5 Tiger G-Spot Vibrator Review

When I saw that the Fun Factory G5 Tiger g-spot vibrator was available to review at Lovehoney, I added it to my tester list immediately. I have a particularly demanding g-spot, so I am always on the lookout for the most powerful vibrators I can find. To date, only a few g-spot vibrators have lived up to my high expectations, but the G5 Tiger intrigued me. Perhaps because it reminded me so much of one of my favourite g-spot toys; the Fun Factory Stronic Drei. Maybe I was swayed by the promise of intensely powerful vibrations. Either way, I just had to find out.

Product Information:

The Fun Factory G5 Tiger has been designed primarily for use as a g-spot/prostate stimulator, but it can be used on other erogenous zones (such as the clitoris) too. Fun Factory are a manufacturers of luxury sex toys, so the G5 Tiger comes with all the features you would expect to find on a high quality sex toy. These include:

 Body Safe Materials:

The G5 Tiger is made from ABS plastic and high quality, medical grade silicone. The silicone is odourless, virtually non-porous (making it much easier to keep hygienically clean) and free from chemicals that can cause irritation (such as phthalates). Fun Factory silicone has a velvety feel to it, so it does feel soft and silky to the touch. It also produces a lot of friction/drag, so a water-based lubricant is often required for comfort. One final thing to note; Fun Factory silicone does attract a lot of dust, hair and lint.

Rechargeable:

The G5 Tiger comes with Fun Factory’s trademark “Click and Charge” technology. Put simply, the small connector at the end of the charging cable is magnetically attracted to the two metal pins at the base of the vibrator. This magnetic attraction is strong and I personally did not experience any accidental disconnects during the charging process.

During the charging process, the Tiger’s operating buttons will flash. If you pay close attention, you will also notice a variety of different flashing patterns. Each pattern indicates how much charge your Tiger has. If you are not sure, the manual will help you to decipher each pattern. A 6/8 hour charge will give you roughly 2 hours of play time.

Waterproof:

The G5 Tiger is completely waterproof and can be fully submerged in water. This makes the vibrator more versatile, as it can be used in the bath and/or shower. It also makes it that much easier to clean thoroughly.

Travel Lock:

The G5 Tiger comes with a travel lock, so you can take it on trips without worrying that it will switch itself on in your luggage. The manual states that you should hold down two buttons simultaneously to lock/unlock the Tiger, but this is not quite true. If you hold down two buttons at the same time, it tends to switch the vibrations on instead. To lock the vibrator, you need to hold down the minus (-) button first and then press and hold down the FUN button. The lights will flash briefly to let you know the vibrator is now locked. To unlock, simply hold down the plus (+) button and then the FUN button as described previously.

Plenty of Pattern/Speed Settings:

The G5 Tiger comes with 12 different pattern settings, including constant vibrations, waves and pulses. Unfortunately, you cannot manually control the speed/power of the vibrations within each setting (like you can do with Lelo vibrators), but there is still a good variety of stimulation options to choose from.

Dimensions/other information:

The Tiger measures 4.5 inches in circumference/girth around the coronal ridge and 4.5 inches in insertable length. The total length of this vibrator, including the handle, is 9 inches. Because the Tiger’s shaft is made entirely from silicone, rather than just being coated in a silicone skin, it does have some squish and flexibility to it. From my own experiments, I would say it is slightly squishier/more flexible than the single density silicone used to create my Tantus Raptor.

Operating the Fun Factory G5 Tiger:

When you turn the G5 Tiger on (using the FUN button), it will start on a medium constant speed setting. You can use the plus (+) button to move up through three more constant speed settings, each one increasing in speed, before you reach what Fun Factory call the “aerobic mode”. Aerobic mode contains three different wave patterns, each one varying in speed. Moving past aerobic mode, you will reach “Razzle Dazzle” mode, which consists of three pulsing, dot-dot-dash style settings. One final click of the plus button will take you back to the first wave pattern in Aerobic Mode.

If you turn on the Tiger and click the minus (-) button, you will hit the “Merengue Mode”, which consists of three constant vibration settings that get slower and gentler with each click. This only works if you press the minus button after turning the Tiger on. If you have already moved up using the plus button, the minus button will simply take you back to the previous setting.

To turn the vibrator off, just click the FUN button. You do not need to press and hold, so the vibrator will switch off immediately.

My Experiences with the G5 Tiger:

I wouldn’t describe myself as a size queen, but a quick look at my Bad Dragon dildo collection will confirm that I can comfortably use larger sex toys for vaginal penetration. The size of a sex toy can be a great indictor of just how intense it will feel during use, but it is certainly not the only thing you should pay attention to. The G5 Tiger proved this to me when I struggled to insert its modestly sized shaft.

There are a few reasons why I struggled to insert the Tiger. Firstly, the shaft is highly textured and if I was not fully relaxed/aroused, those ripples would rumble and pop uncomfortably past my internal muscles. Secondly, the silicone is extremely draggy. I had to apply lots of lubricant to reduce the friction, otherwise it would irritate.

Due to the above issues, I also found it difficult to use the Tiger for hard, fast thrusting. This was a little disappointing, but it wasn’t the be all and end all. When aroused, it felt great to slowly thrust the tiger, as the rumbling texture and grabby silicone would massage my g-spot. As I built closer towards orgasm, I could loop my finger through the hole in the handle and jiggle the Tiger, which would push me over the edge. Even without the vibrations, the Tiger proved to be an intense g-spot stimulator.

As I mentioned previously, the Tiger’s entire shaft is made from silicone. When I first realised this, I was concerned that the silicone would dampen the vibrations travelling from the motor, to the tip of the toy. I needn’t have worried. I have no idea how Fun Factory did it, but the vibrations feel just as strong at the base of the Tiger, as they do at the tip. Best of all, the vibrations are so powerful, deep and rumbling that I can even use the Tiger as a satisfying clitoral vibrator. I can count on one hand the number of g-spot vibrators that have this effect on me. I usually need a much more pin-point type of stimulation, but the Tiger’s vibrations are just that good.

The raised nub at the base of the shaft is designed to provide clitoral/perineal stimulation, but unfortunately it just didn’t work that way for me. Perhaps if the nub had been bigger, or angled more towards the body, it would have made a satisfying dual stimulator. As it is, it just didn’t hit my clitoris in any satisfying way. Still, the nub does have its benefits; it provides extra stimulation around the vaginal/anal opening and makes the Tiger safe to use for anal penetration.

Finally, I want to talk about the noise levels. For such a powerful vibrator, the G5 Tiger is relatively quiet. While I wouldn’t describe it as the quietest sex toy in my collection, the sounds were quiet enough that I could muffle most of it under a duvet. With some light background noise, I wouldn’t have an issue using the Tiger in a house shared by others.

Summary:

In my opinion, the G5 Tiger is one of the best g-spot vibrators available at the moment. It was slightly disappointing that I couldn’t thrust hard and fast, but to be honest I never felt like I needed that additional stimulation. The sensations were intense as it was. I was so impressed with the Tiger’s build/material quality and the range of features included, but what really took the Tiger from average to amazing is the sheer power of the vibrations. In terms of power, the Tiger compares closely with another favourite g-spot vibrator; the L’amourose Rosa.

If you are a power seeker, or want intense sensations in general, then I believe the Tiger would be a fantastic choice. If you are quite sensitive and don’t enjoy intense vibration and/or penetration, you might want to take a look at the Lelo Mona Wave instead.
