A Truly Versatile G-Spot Vibe

A vibrator that serves multiple functions and does them all so well is a rare and wonderful find. Designed for g-spotting, Gigolo not only does that extremely well, but also provides external stimulation, a girthy shaft for satisfying fullness, and strong vibrations anywhere you choose to apply them.
Published:
Pros:
High quality, versatile silicone toy with a g-spot loving head, thick shaft, and strong vibrations.
Cons:
Slightly tricky battery compartment, at least the first time.

Use

The flat head is outstanding for g-spot stimulation, while also serving as a solid choice for a clitoral vibrator. It's also satisfyingly thick all-around. It's on the larger side, so it might not be everyone's best choice as a first toy, yet at the same time, the versatility and quality make it worth considering as long as the decision is made with size firmly in mind.

Material / Texture

Smooth, flexible silicone makes this toy safe, body-friendly, and extremely pleasant to use. It's odorless, pleasant to handle, and firm enough for comfortable thrusting. The silicone provides a little bit of friction when used externally.

While the silicone is flexible, it's not floppy like the Fun Factory Curve or the Share. It's just a tad firmer than the Curve.

Design / Shape / Size

The shape is ideal for g-spot stimulation, with a wide flat head perfect for applying pressure and vibration to the right area, and enough flexibility to the silicone to rub in different ways. The width provides a satisfying fullness, and it works in a variety of ways, allowing each user to find their own preferences.

It has the same flat head as the Lelo Gigi, only larger, with a significantly thicker and more flexible shaft. (The Gigi is not flexible at all.) I think the two will take turns being my favorite vibrator, depending on my mood, and the Gigolo does come out on top in several categories.

It beats the Lucid Dream #14, another g-spot vibrator that I enjoyed, hands down, thanks to the flatter head, the more versatile shaft that allows for thrusting, and of course the odorless, body-friendly silicone.

Functions / Performance / Controls

I loved the g-spot stimulation, and also found it quite adequate for external use as well. On the maiden voyage, I accidentally used the wrong batteries, and as a result thought I'd stumbled upon a pulse setting, then feared I had a dud. A second try, and suddenly the vibrations were steady, as well as much more powerful. The lesson here is to always make sure you try a new toy with fresh batteries of the proper type.

Speaking of the vibrations, I'm very impressed that a toy this quiet can pack such a punch. It passed all of my sound tests, while proving too strong for me on the highest setting. I found that the dial spun easily with the flick of a single finger, and that while the battery compartment is definitely the weak spot in the design, it's not a significant detriment to the use of the toy. It's a little tricky, not impossible, and not having the battery compartment come open unexpectedly while turning the dial is a fine compensation for the mild inconvenience.

With the vibrations turned off, the Gigolo makes an excellent dildo, and while it won't guide you straight to your g-spot, it will definitely help you know when you get there.

I didn't use the toy in water, but I washed it in the sink without damaging it.

Care and Maintenance

Since it's waterproof, the Gigolo cleans up easily with soap and water, or with toy cleaner. Always use water based lubricant with silicone toys. As for storage, I slipped mine into a small cosmetics bag from the fair trade store and it fit beautifully. I've said that in a fair number of my reviews - yes, I really bought that many small cosmetics bags at the fair trade store. (EF should look into carrying them. Sexy, convenient, and socially responsible.)

If anyone were to find your Gigolo, it does look like a vibrator, although at least it's not veiny and disembodied. You could claim it was a neck massager and attempt to retreat with your dignity. Or you could invest in a locking case of some kind - this toy is worth it.

Packaging

The packaging is typical of Fun Factory, with a window into the package for viewing the toy, and a magnetic flap with information in a variety of languages. It's one of those boxes that's a little too nice to throw away, without being quite as fancy as Lelo or JeJoue. The lack of scantily clad models on the package makes it refreshingly discreet, but anyone getting a good look at the box will know it contained a sex toy.
Follow-up commentary
Do I still like it? I love the Gigolo. I've gotten quite skilled at working the tricksy battery compartment, and everything else about this toy is pure joy. Strong vibrations, easy on batteries, lovely flexibility . . . if I manage to break it, I'll replace it with the exact same toy. It's definitely one of my favorites.

    Nice review ToyGeek. Sounds like a great vibe!

    Can you clarify what you mentioned about pulses though? Is this vibrator just a straight one function vibe with variable power? Or are there actually functions like pulses, waves, roller coaster, etc...?

    Thanks
  • ToyGeek
    @ LiftedUp -- No, the pulses only occur when the batteries are low. It's a one-function vibe with variable power.
