Okay Dildo - Not-So-Good Strap-On

It's a good toy and good quality, but I can really only recommend this highly to those who want a finger-like penetration size and also are on the smaller size body-wise. Those who want something larger for penetration or have larger bodies (and thus, possibly larger stomachs) may find that the small length of the Share XS makes penetration more annoying than helpful.

Pros:
Good silicone, Inserted portion is okay on its own, Retains better than other Share original
Cons:
Too short length for many people, Very small shaft length causes issues

extremely useful review
The Share XS is a double-ended dildo made by FunFactory. It's made of silicone, and the "view actual product size" is relatively accurate. At the widest diameter (the part that goes into the female), the Share XS is about two inches in diameter, and on the shaft-like ended, the Share XS is about 3/4 inch in diameter. It does not include a bullet hole or anything like that for vibrations.

The packaging is pretty typical for a FunFactory dildo. It has a grey and magenta-like design, and it has a magnetic panel that opens up to display everything about the dildo. The Share XS itself is sitting in a cardboard tray that slides out of the box. This box can be used for storage, but it is much larger than the dildo itself, so it may not be the best option if you're strapped for room. Along with the box, the Share XS comes with a sample size of water-based lubricant along with an instruction manual and a pamphlet about FunFactory products.

The Share XS is specifically designed to be a strapless-strap-on dildo. The larger end is intended to be inserted into a female while the smaller, shaft-like end is intended to be inserted into whoever the female plans on having sex with. The female bulb end does have some ridges on the surface of the silicone that helps with gripping the silicone, and the shaft end is completely smooth and about the width of a finger (and about that length as well).

The biggest difference between the Share XS and the rest of the Share line is the size of the insertable, shaft portion. There's a HUGE difference between this one and the Share original. I mean a HUGE difference. The Share original is about the size of your average penis while the Share XS is about the size of a finger. I wish FunFactory had an "in-between" size that had a long, slender dildo on it slightly larger in girth than the Share XS while not being quite as thick as the rest. As most anal beginners can take a good amount of length but thickness is the problem, I think that an in-between size would address the issue much better than the Share XS.

It's pretty hard to explain really how small it is. I mean, you only get about three inches of penetrative room with this shaft. And that's problematic. If you're like me, and a plus-sized woman, it's pretty impossible to actually get penetration in most positions. With a larger body (and stomach) partnered with the very, very small size of the shaft on this one, penetration is only possible in a couple positions, and in those positions, you really only get about an inch or two inserted. This is really where I feel like the Share XS lets me down.

It's just a matter of the length of the dildo. The thickness itself wouldn't be a huge problem, but the length causes an issue. It's only about the size of my finger. Fingers work okay for penetration because there isn't a full body "backed up" behind it - I can easily move my hand around and there really isn't any body fat to cause any penetration angle problems. When that same size is attached to someone's genital area, it becomes a much larger problem because body size, body frame, and less flexibility will really start to show their problems quite quickly. And that's why the Share XS really lets us down. It just doesn't have the length neded to make it a really good double-ended dildo.

As for how well it stays in, the Share XS stays in much better than my regular Share. I think this is because the Share XS is missing the huge "shaft" that causes gravity to pull more on my original Share. I tried them one-after-another, and the Share XS stays in much, much better than the Share original. With this in mind, I'd probably recommend this for those who want to "pack" something under their clothing without wearing a harness as the small shaft would be much easier to hide than an original Share and the Share XS tends to stay inserted much better than the Share original as well.
Experience
To clean this, as it's pure silicone, you can just use warm water and antibacterial soap. It can also be sterilized by boiling it or placing it in a bleach solution. For lubricant, you can only use water-based lubricant as silicone-based lubricant can ruin the surface of the toy (though we use Wet Platinum frequently on our FunFactory toys with no adverse effects; it depends on the quality of the lubricant). For storage, the dildo does pick up a bit of lint, so make sure to keep it in the original box or find it a bag to keep it from picking up too much lint.

So really, while I love the silicone and the idea of a beginner-friendly insertion toy, the Share XS, believe it or not, ends up being TOO small to actually be useful. I want it to be useful. I do! In fact, the width isn't even the issue - it's just the length. I'd love to see FunFactory made an improved version that had a longer length - just so that the Share XS would then be usable while strapped onto a person. As it stands, it's a fantastic dildo - but a pretty bad strap-on dildo.
