Use

The Fun Factory Tiger is a textured silicone dildo meant to be used vaginally by female bodied persons. It is suitable for manual use, either solo or with a partner, and it also works with a harness for strap on fun. It does have a sufficient base for safe anal play if desired, although due to the size and texture, only more advanced users will likely prove brave enough to try. Plenty of lube and adequate warmup are essential for any use.

Material / Texture

Like all Fun Factory dildos, the Tiger is made of odorless, non-porous, and body safe silicone. It's flexible, but on the firm side, and the ridges provide significant texture. Due to that texture, I'd advise against it as a first toy, as it's never fun to waste money on something and then discover it's not to one's tastes.

I doubt anyone outside of the Klingon Empire would find this toy particularly realistic, and even then, the color does much to honor the Empire, but very little to resemble actual flesh. Like humans, Klingons come in a rainbow of colors, but fire engine red is not among them.
    • Harness compatible
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

For a toy with significant texture, the Tiger is on the large side, but not overwhelmingly so. If you take a look at the 'view actual size' feature on the product page, you can compare it to a toy of your own and thus decide if the size is appropriate for you. It is accurate, with a diameter of 1 3/4 inches at its widest point, as verified by my handy dandy pasta measuring device.

Whether the size truly works for anyone will depend much more on their like or dislike of texture than it will on the actual size of the toy. If you're worried about texture, make sure the Tiger is smaller than toys you find to be on the large side. If you're a size queen who found the Tantus Echo, for example, to be fun but possibly underwhelming, you'll like the stronger texture of the Tiger.

Those who find that some toys catch on their pubic bone should probably give the Tiger a pass. While it's a little less pronounced than on the Fun Factory Curve, this toy does have a bit of a hook to it just below the head.

As for discretion, this toy doesn't look like a penis, but it does look like a dildo. Only your most naive snoop will be fooled by stories of alien weaponry or modern art. Whether you're comfortable with traveling with the toy is a matter of personal preference. It won't set off a metal detector, it won't get smashed by rough luggage handling, and it won't start buzzing away during the security check, but it's pretty obviously a sex toy and does carry the potential for embarrassment if you're shy.

Performance

In use, the Tiger does its job well. The texture can be felt very well, so personally I'd recommend plenty of warmup before bringing the Tiger into the action. Texture is one of those things that's dependent on mood, so you'll want to save the Tiger for those times when texture sounds appealing.

The Tiger's shape gives plenty of attention to the g-spot, but it's a thrusting past it with yummy texture kind of attention, not direct pressure. Those who require direct pressure for g-spot stimulation will find the Tiger lacking. The flexibility of the Tiger does allow for some adjustment to the intensity of the sensation.

The hand hold on this toy is fantastic, and I found the Tiger easier to hold than many other toys that had never seemed particularly bothersome before. It's a genius base, ergonomically shaped for the hand yet still compatible with harnesses. I tried it in a homemade hand harness and quickly abandoned that plan as unnecessary, although it worked fine with the O ring. I'd imagine it would work just as well in a harness meant for couples, but I lack a partner.

While the Tiger does not have a bullet hole, it does transmit vibrations well from the Vibratex Mystic Wand, although I didn't find that particularly necessary outside of making for a thorough review.

Care and Maintenance

Caring for silicone is easy. It can be washed in soap and water after use, or if sterilization is necessary, it can be boiled for ten minutes, rinsed with a ten percent bleach solution, or run through the dishwasher. Silicone is a lint magnet, so it's wise to either rinse it before use, or wipe it down carefully with a toy wipe. Always dry it with a lint free cloth and store it in some kind of separator bag to guard against lint and other particles. There are many options for separator bags, ranging from those designed specifically for toys down to ordinary ziplock bags, which have the advantage of displaying the toys. I opt for a small cosmetics bag from the fair trade store, and I found a lovely red one to match my Tiger.

Silicone toys should never be used with silicone lube, as the chemicals in those lubes exist to keep the silicone in a liquid state. Clearly your toy will work better if it is not also in a liquid state, so avoid that tragedy. Silicone toys can also be damaged by leaving them in direct contact with silicone composites like TPR -- the chemical components of those materials which are not silicone are chosen because they bond well with silicone. Don't let them bond with your pure silicone toys. Use separator bags.

Packaging

Fun Factory packaging is cheerful, but not elegant. I feel it's perfectly suitable for any gift giving occasion that would find a dildo appropriate, but it's not particularly subtle. While thankfully free of naked ladies, the package does show a large picture of the toy on all sides but one -- and that side is left open to display the toy itself through a layer of clear plastic. Refrain from wrapping it up and exchanging it with your lover at dear Aunt Sally's Christmas Eve party. Or do, I don't know your Aunt Sally, maybe she's really cool and will regale you with tales of her own escapes in her younger days, also known as just last week at senior bingo.

Anyway, once you're done horrifying your lover's aunt, or she's done horrifying you, the package can be sliced up to avoid horrifying the trash collector, and slid into the recycling bin. It's a bit bulky to be useful as storage.

The Tiger did come with instructions, in a variety of languages, which pretty much amounted to 'use lube' -- I did, and otherwise ignored them. There was also a free sample of Fun Factory Toyfluid in the box, which I hid away carefully for any future lube emergencies. Fun Factory actually makes my very favorite lube for use with toys, and it's not always in stock, so someday I'll probably be extremely grateful for it.

Personal comments

Yes, I bought this toy purely because it reminded me of Klingon foreheads. I'm fairly certain that they aren't bumpy anywhere else, but I haven't been with a Klingon, so I don't really know. If you're a serious Star Trek fan, you could always take one of these toys ComicCon and conduct a survey. It'll make you a minor celebrity on Tumblr, provided you don't get kicked out by security.
