Displeasing name, pleasing toy

The Mr. Pink, an ArtTOY by Fun Factory, is unlike anything else on the market right now. While it's not quite what it seems like you're getting (it's not dual density) it's super high quality and, if you prefer smaller toys, I recommend it.

Use

The Mr. Pink is a strange one, but on a basic level it's just a dildo. It's a piece ow pure, wiggly silicone like quite a few other Fun Factory toys. It has no motor, and doesn't vibrate, but this isn't something that's necessarily bad.

The main use for this toy is to be inserted vaginally. It has a thinner side and a thicker side, but both can be used for g-spot stimulation as long as you don't require something with an extreme, firm curve. The smooth surface and design also make it great to use for thrusting.

This toy can also be used for anal insertion. It's got a long, easy to hold on to shape and it's easy to insert, but it should not be left in or let go of like a plug because it doesn't have too flared of an end. It may be best for intermediate anal users, and the curved ends should make it good for prostate stimulation.

If you're looking for an external toy, this really isn't a good bet. Not having a motor makes it just as exciting as your fingers (maybe even less so) when it comes to clitoral stimulation, and it's not a good design at all for an all over massage.

As far as being a first toy to introduce into a relationship, this would be okay. It's not the best to use as a couple because it's not good to use during intercourse and it does look a little 'weird.' I'd personally recommend something a little more versatile with a motor.

I feel similarly about this being someones first toy altogether, but as far as dildos go this would be a great place to start. If you're on the market for your first toy and DON'T want a motor, I actually would highly recommend this one.

The Mr. Pink also 100% passes Ryu's Dorm Seal of Approval. It's super easy to care for and stash away, though it's not small enough to keep in a pencil case. It's also entirely silent because it has no motor and waterproof if you want to take it into the shower, so what ever you want is fine.

Material / Texture

The Mr. Pink is made entirely from pure silicone. Silicone is rated a 10 out of 10 on the Eden Safety Scale. Silicone is body safe and nonporous, meaning that bacteria can't get inside the surface to grow and that it won't release any gross chemicals into you during use.

Here's what the company says about the material:

"This extravagant ArtTOY with its pink core in a transparent sheath is the latest coup from the New York Designer Karim Rashid.'

Now doesn't this make it sound like some cool, new Dual Density toy with a firm, pink middle and a soft, realistic, white outside? Yeah! More dual density toys! How cool I get to review one!

Nope. While it is soft, plush silicone that's safe and pretty, it's in no way dual density. You can see in my images below showing the design that the pink strip is more an added design made of the same material, and isn't a core at all but rather a stripe on the top and bottom.

Because it has no firm middle, this is a lot more 'wiggly' than I was thinking. It's very floppy, and is especially flexible at the thinner parts. The thicker parts don't have much give and are less flexible, but it still may come as a surprise to some.

Due to the firmness, it's not for those among us who cherish the cold, unrelenting materials like glass and metal. It's similar to the other Fun Factory toys or Tantus dildos as far as firmness is concerned. If you need a lot of pressure to be happy I'd look elsewhere, but if you're a fan of softer materials this is great.

Overall, silicone is just an awesome material for everyone. The Mr. Pink is smooth and a bit of a lint magnet, but it takes very little lube (not silicone-based, though) to get it ready. It's also body safe and easy to care for. Though it's not dual density like it seems in the description, I wouldn't dissuade anyone from trying it out.

Design / Shape / Size

The Mr. Pink is an ArtTOY designed by some famous fella for Fun Factory. A quick google of his name reveals a website and a click on his portfolio-- Wait, WHO designed my newest dildo?! More on that later, but wow, Fun Factory really out did themselves this time. (Strangely, this dildo is not in his portfolio.)

The Mr. Pink is a double ended dildo, and is going to be great for most people who like 'average' or a bit thinner toys. There are two sides, the thick, 'lumpy' side or the thin, 'streamlined' side. Predictably, I chose the thinner one over the thicker one every time.

Be it the 'lumpy' side or the 'head' of the toy, the thicker end is just over 4 inches around. It's got a large protrusion on one side, and is fairly flat on the other side. It also comes to a fairly sharp point on the end.

In the middle of the toy is a 'funny lump' that is just a weird widening of the shaft. It certainly makes this more interesting to use, but it also makes it hard to insert past those lumps. More on how I've found them to work later in the review, as well.

Finally there's the thinner side. This is shaped kind of like the head of a garden snake, undefined and tapered. This end is really more like 3 inches around, making it ideal for us who like smaller toys. This tip also has two symbols and a Fun Factory logo pressed into the silicone.

While you can leave this on your desk and claim it's art, it really doesn't look like any other household items. It's going to attract a lot of attention, so it's just safer to keep it in a drawer or box. It's thin enough to make it very travel friendly, and the TSA isn't going to consider it a weapon.

Overall, the Mr. Pink dildo is great to use for people who aren't size queens. It's got a unique design by a famous artist, and he really had some interesting ideas when it came to this one. As with all Fun Factory toys, there's certainly nothing else like it on the market right now.

Performance

While the Mr. Pink is versatile for how you can use it manually, that's pretty much the only way you can use it. This is because of the dual ends and most people will still be able to find great ways to use it, but I feel like certain people will wish it was designed otherwise.

Because of the odd shape, this toy can not be used with a harness. It's got two ends, and both are rounded and shaped for insertion. While you MAY be able to use the thicker end with an o-ring, it would be very comfortable or sturdy.

Similarly, this toy has no flat or suction cup base. This means you can't really stick it to something or set it on a hard surface to use it. It's just something that comes with having two useable sides.

Because of this, you just have to be archaic and use your *gasp* hand! Even though it's not super fancy or anything, it's still versatile in it's own right. Great for anal or vaginal play, and with a design that's nice for men and women, this is something that a lot of people will be able to appreciate.

Though it won't work for everyone, my personal favorite way to use this toy is to insert the smaller tip and bring the lumpy middle bit up to stimulate my clitoris. This helps it to feel more like 'realistic' intercourse to me, but I also have a very shallow g-spot. Here's me trying to demonstrate this with my hand:

Mr Pink Use

Overall, though the Mr. Pink doesn't have a motor, it's a versatile and interesting toy. It's not going to be great if you want something to use with a harness, but if you're fine using a dildo the 'old fashioned way' I have nothing bad to say about the Mr. Pink.
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

This toy is very easy to clean and care for. Because it's silicone it's got a huge number of cleaning methods to chose from. Because it's a bit of a lint magnet it's best to wash it off both before and after every use. I wash mine with an antibacterial toy cleaner, but soap and water or a toy wipe are both great options.

Because it's nonporous, you can disinfect this and it's ready to switch orifices or users. In order to disinfect it you can either boil it for a few minutes or wipe it down with a 10% bleach solution. Certain dishwashers also get hot enough to disinfect toys like this.

I store mine in a cool, dark place with the rest of my toys. It's best not to store it in contact with other silicone toys (especially those from less reputable companies) because the two materials could react and leave you sad. Similarly, this toy shouldn't be used with silicone lubes.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

One thing that always was a bit disappointing with Fun Factory was the packaging. It was always a bit of a let down to get a $100 toy in flimsy, cardboard packaging but I always assumed that they passed the quality down to the consumer and tossed the box in the trash.

That Fun Factory is no more! This toy comes in super nice packaging that really helps to emphasize that this was made by a fancy-pants designer. It's shiney and classy, and it makes me wish I had more room to store the box in.

The front of the outside box has a full sized image of the toy on it. It's pretty boring, but it looks very classy. If you carry it around with you it's going to be pretty obvious what's inside, but it makes you feel like you're getting a quality toy.

On the back of the outside box is an image of the designer, him sketching out the toy, and the name of the designer and ArtTOY he came up with. It's very modern looking and, again, makes it feel high quality.

The inside box is like a small shoebox, and is a light gold color. It's slightly shiny, and the only graphics on it is a red circle that states the brand of the toy. It opens up easily, but if you wrap this box it's not obvious what's inside.

Inside the toy isn't held in place very well, but because it's just a silicone dildo it can get banged around without getting damaged. Pretty much the inside is just a red, cardboard holder for the toy. It comes with an insert, but it's not instructional.

Overall, I wouldn't hesitate at all to wrap this up and give it as a gift. It's classy and looks quality, and if I had more room I would totally use it for storage. As it is, it's probably going to end up in the trash.

Here's the front of the outside box:

Personal comments

When I first read that this was by a designer blah blah blah I was all "Whatever, all toys are designed by someone. Bah humbug, stupid designers." But because I'm a good reviewer and do research when I write reviews, I figured that I should at least GOOGLE the guy and say something.

Karim Rashid is a guy, which surprised me, who is a SUPER famous designer. He designs all kinds of crazy stuff, including the Bobble water bottle that I have sitting around here somewhere.... If you want a more comprehensive idea of who this crazy fella is you can poke around his website here.

He stated that his inspiration for the Mr. Pink was (from the pamphlet included):

"We are an organic machine or emotions, needs, and desires. Sexual pleasure is one of the greatest proponents of our existence. I wanted MR. PINK to be fluid, playful, sculptural, biodynamic, and erotic. Design is now shaping every aspect of living so the final frontier is to shape a better sex life."

He also talked about the two weird symbols that are found on the toy, as well as the links to his portfolios:

... (When asked what the symbols PHENOMENA and BODY stand for) "When one has a phenomenal experience it is an authentic experience for the first time. My symbol of phenomena is an unveiling of an actuality.

Body symbol is our physical being that should be worshiped and nurtured. It is experiential of our physiological and biological state."

These are the two symbols on the toy:

Mr Pink Symbol 2
Mr. Pink symbol 1

Experience

When I saw this toy I had two thoughts:

"That looks like it would work great for me" and

"That's a horrible name..."

Despite the horrible name and 'designer' reputation (I'm one of those weird people who doesn't want a Coach bag out of SPITE!), I requested it for an assignment. It was not a bad choice at all!

While it's not going to be kicking out my Bandito (also by Fun Factory) or my Tsunami, this is certainly a 'keeper' toy. After learning more about the artist's motives and thoughts when he designed this toy, I also feel like I'm more connected to it than the other hunks of silicone that people designed because they looked neat and worked well.

Overall, even if you're put off by the name and such, I would highly recommend this toy for people who don't need a giant girth or length. While I do want to take off .25 of a star for the ucky name and description that made it sound dual-density, 4.75 out of 5 stars is rounded up to a solid 5.
