An Unhappy Poink

This is an absolutely gorgeous dildo, complete with an adorable clover-shaped base and smoke-like tendrils of white marbling. A great intermediate size that isn't too filling and isn't too puny. It was, however, just not the right shape or fit for me. Still a wonderful dildo that most will love!

extremely useful review
Oh, how I loathe to be the dissenting voice when it comes to a toy that everyone loves. Fun Factory's Magnum was a dildo that I've had on my wishlist for a long time; for the breath-taking swirls of white and blue silicone alone this is an absolutely stand out toy. But it's Fun Factory too, and until now I'd yet to meet an FF toy I didn't adore. Their silicone is yummy and firm but with just the right amount of give, and all of their designs are so damn cute, their colors so vibrant. So I saved my pennies and ordered it.

But I didn't adore it.

In theory I did. Oh, Magnum is beautiful. 8 inches long, with all but a half inch of that insertable, and a nice healthy 1.5 inch girth. Mine is a gorgeous cerulean blue, marbled with feathery wisps of white that curl throughout its length. The white marbling is truly magnificent, and reminds me of the lazy helix movement of incense smoke. It has that cute clover shaped, harness-compatible base that nearly all of Fun Factory's Stubs line of dildos has, and the Magnum works wonderfully when strapped in. It even has a suction cup base that works decently.

This guy is also made from a quality material: 100% medical grade silicone, which makes it completely nonporous so that it's safe for sharing and easy to clean. A nonporous toy cannot absorb any microbes, so while bacteria can collect on the surface, it cannot penetrate the toy and breed there. The surface of the toy can be sanitized thoroughly by using a 10% bleach solution on it or boiling it for 3-4 minutes in hot water. It can also be lathered with a little antibacterial soap and warm water for a quick clean up.

And Magnum is incredibly smooth. The wonderful thing about Fun Factory Stubs is their only seam is often around the base, running horizontal to the surface they rest on. No sharp, scraping edges marring its silky shaft. It's a great dildo, it really is. It's firm enough that it can't easily be bent, but has enough give to it that it's comfortable. It would be a great toy for an intermediate or advanced player to take vaginally or anally, and actually is quite well suited for anal because of how smooth it is. For many others this seems to be a great choice. But for me? There was one glaring issue that I had with it, which I refer to with my partner as the Unhappy Poink.
Experience
At the top of this dildo, the head flattens out on the front side and reaches a rounded point at its tip. This tip never looked particularly menacing to me in photos, but in use it was very uncomfortable. It is situated so that if the dildo is inserted vaginally with the curve facing into the G-spot, the point is on the opposing side away from the G-spot. Were it the other way around? That rounded poink might actually feel really great. But as it stands it just sort of...juts into the back of my vagina very uncomfortably.

I tried everything. All of the reviews I've read for this one have been glowing and I wanted so much to love it. I thrust shallowly, I thrust deeply, I turned the thing backward. Nothing worked. The poink was there each time, jabbing me awkwardly. The only way I could use this and not be uncomfortable was to rock it very gently, but this didn't do anything for me, really. After three weeks with it, I'm putting it away for a while. Maybe someday I'll love it, but for now I'll reserve it for guests that don't mind the poink.
Follow-up commentary
Hm. Well, the point on the end of this is still very uncomfortable for vaginal use, so I've more or less retired this baby from that purpose. However, as I work up to anal penetration with thicker toys I find that Magnum is a great toy to use in the upper end of my anal size spectrum. The tapered point allows me to ease down into its thicker shaft, and its seamless plushness is very forgiving for an anal intermediate player like myself.

So while it's not my favorite dildo of all time, I have definitely found a practical application for Magnum. Of course, it's still standing up fantastically to use and wear because it's a wonderfully high quality toy from the wonderful Fun Factory. So if you think your anatomy will vibe with this shape? Don't hesitate! It's beautiful, durable and easy to care for.
