The Beau of My Horror Novel

To describe Fabio, I would not use the word "perfect." I would use the word "painful." Some may enjoy him, but unless you are a size queen or enjoy being extremely filled (to the point of being sore for a couple of days afterward), you likely will have the same experience I did. There aren't many redeeming features for Fabio.
Published:
Pros:

Use

Fabio, oh, Fabio! This toy is a realistic (though not extremely realistic) dong that just screams for size queens and/or kings. I think it would be best suited for solo play or perhaps play with a very open and communicative couple, due to its size.

It's very flared, so you can use it anally.

Fabio has a suction cup that means it can potentially be used attached to solid, smooth surfaces such as shower walls, tubs, toilet seats, mirrors, windows, and some walls.

Material / Texture

Is it TPR? Is it Futurotic? Is it Cyberskin, UR3, PVC, TPE? What is Fabio made out of? This is quite the question. The box indicates, with a very clear line, Material: TPR. but also indicates it's made of Futurotic, in saying Incredibly Life-Like Futurotic (tm) Cock. Futurotic has a way lower safety score than TPR does, and TPR doesn't require the care and maintenance that Futurotic does. So, which is it? I will say it's Futurotic, out of precaution and going with the cleaning instructions on the package (see below).

Futurotic is a compound of PVC and silicone, though the packaging says to only use rubber-compatible lubes, so it probably has a mix of rubber as well. It is phthalate-free, pretty darn porous, and is meant to mimic real skin. It has a faintly rubber smell, and can be sticky, even if dusted with cornstarch.

Fabio is very squishy, and very flexible--I can bend it completely in half without much effort. It's almost floppy. The surface is smooth; there are veins visible and can be felt (barely) by a finger, but they can't be felt during use. The head is rather pronounced, but not extreme. There is no solid core in Fabio.

    • Light odor
    • Porous

Design / Shape / Size

Calling all size queens! Fabio is huge. No seriously, gigantic. He is about 9.25" tall, with up to 6.75" insertable. At his widest, which is just above the balls, Fabio is just over 2" in diameter, which is just over 6.5" in circumference. The entire shaft is about 2" in diameter, so, there's no gentle taper. The head is the only respite at 1.75" in diameter (5.5" in circumference). It was just too large to enjoy for me, but I'm no size queen.

It is designed to look realistic. It arrives with a pinkish head, but that washed off in the first wash. The veins aren't detailed. It is all one color, after the first wash. And it's an odd peach. Not a realistic color at all.

This toy would not work for me, an average, experienced user, and it would not be suitable for a beginner. This was my first realistic toy, and I am not impressed.

Performance

If the size appeals to you and you enjoy realistic toys, you just might like this toy.

However, as an average user (I tend to prefer toys that are less than 5.5" in circumference), this was just too large. I have since learned that realistic toys aren't my thing, and I cannot accept such a large girth.

The suction cup is okay, but it doesn't hold up for very long on a vertical wall with vigorous, or even moderately-vigorous, movements. It's not a very deep suction cup, and the material is kind of floppy to use on a vertical wall anyway. It droops. It could potentially be harness compatible, but you would need a 2" ring and a harness that has testicle storage.

As it looks like a penis, it is not discreet, and as it is quite large and solid, and difficult to store (see below), it would not be very suitable for travel.
    • Easy to use
    • Not discreet at all

Care and Maintenance

This has to be the most difficult toy I own to store and clean. Futurotic should be washed with warm water and soap or a commercial toy cleaner, and then sprinkled with cornstarch (NOT talcum powder, which is linked with cancer). This makes it so it must be washed before and after each use. Storage is annoying, too. It must be stored separately, away from lint and other materials, and in a dark, cool place.

As Futurotic is a mix of PVC and silicone, don't use silicone- or oil-based lubes with Fabio, only water-based.

Seriously, if I was going to deal with something so difficult, I'd rather have the man attached to the penis.
    • Difficult to store
    • Hard to clean
    • High maintenance

Packaging

It's packaged rather simply--a box, a bag, and a bottle. The box has a rather enticing, hunky man (but, sadly, not Fabio) on two sides, with an actual size photo of Fabio, the dildo. It includes cleaning instructions but no hints as to what it actually is (see Material and Texture above).

The bag is just a clear plastic bag that is already opened. The Fabio just kind of flops around in the box, which is a little large.

The bottle is a teeny bottle (probably good for one or two uses, .17 oz) of what I would think is cornstarch. They state it's talc-free and fragrance free, but not what it is other than "Futurotic Maintenance Powder". I tossed this bottle and figured I'd use my own cornstarch.

Overall, it's not impressive, not discreet, and not super informative.

Personal comments

While I'm sure many women (and men, if you're so inclined) would enjoy Fabio, he just isn't for me.


Objectively, this is probably a 3 or 4 star toy. It's big, it's realistic, it's got a nice texture.

Subjectively, it earns 1 measly star. I have never had a toy cause me pain (that is, as a toy that isn't meant to cause pain), and I really worked at it. It's a confusing, high maintenance material, it looks weirdly under-detailed, its quality doesn't seem so great. My Fabio is developing a tear in the base (where the cock meets the suction cup).

Experience

The first time I attempted to use it, I lubed it up, and tried to slide it in after a little warmup. Hm. No go.

The seond time I attempted to use it, I had an orgasm, to loosen myself up, and slid it in (after lubing it up). Still no go. I lubed it up even more to the point of dripping, and tried again. Ah, there it went.

At that point, it was like "OW, OW, OW!" I dare not even thrust the toy. This toy is going in the garbage.
