Seeing Stars Thanks to this Angel

This is perhaps the most versatile toy I've ever used, and it would work well for a lot of different people. The Angelo is beautifully designed in form and function, and has been some of the best money I have ever spent.

Use

This vibrator has a ton of different uses and ways it can provide pleasure. While this toy is marketed as a g-spot stimulator, it makes a great clitoral stimulator as well. The Angelo can also be used on the labia, nipples or the taint. This toy is not safe for anal penetration since it doesn't have a flared based. In my experiences with the Angelo, I have had most fun using it on my clitoris while masturbating or during sex with a partner. The curved wing shape of the toy makes it very versatile, since the curve can be used to angle into the g-spot if used internally, and if used externally the curve fits nicely in the front area of the vulva. The toy can also be flipped over to provide a broad flat surface for stimulation, which also feels really good.

As a g-spot stimulator, the curve and length of this toy were just long enough to be able to hit the g-spot and provide directed pressure. It's a short toy, so it will not be able to reach deep enough in the vagina to hit the cervix or the anterior fornix for women that enjoy deep penetration. The thickness was great enough to fill me nicely without being overwhelming.

The shape of this toy and its size makes it a great toy to use with a partner. Because the end of the toy is pointed and has the flattened curve it is really easy to hold the curved nub of the Angelo on the clitoris while the user is being penetrated vaginally by either another toy or by her partner. I found that this toy could be used to stimulate the clitoris in a wide variety of positions for both penetrative vaginal and anal sex without it getting in the way of my partner's cock or poking into our bodies. Even in positions where our bodies were close together, the Angelo still fit comfortably for both my partner and I.

This vibrator can work well for women who prefer either pinpoint or broad area stimulation. Depending on how you hold the toy, you can use just the pointed tip on the clitoris, or you can use the entire flat surface of the toy to stimulate a broader area. Since the Angelo is also waterproof, it makes a great accessory to shower or bathtub sex and it's great to use in the shower/bath for solo loving as well. This toy is great for beginners and advanced users alike.

Material / Texture

The Angelo is made of a high quality silicone, making it incredibly body safe and easy to clean. Only the black charge port on the base of the toy is made of plastic. The silicone used in this toy is smooth and velvety with a slight drag to it and no smell. With lube this toy gets very slick. The silicone does act as a lint magnet, which is something I've noticed with all Fun Factory toys. The lint attraction is only a minor nuisance since a quick rinse of the toy with water immediately gets rid of any lint.

There is a slight texture to this toy that gives the Angelo its characteristic "angel wing" appearance. This texture isn't significant enough to be felt or noticed during play and has more of a stylistic purpose than a stimulatory one. The internal portion of the toy is very rigid, but the silicone has a plushy feel to it. The lower 2/3 of the toy is completely rigid, but the pointed nub of the toy is slightly flexible. The flexibility made the toy very comfortable to use. Personally, I would have preferred the toy to be a bit more rigid since I'm very pressure sensitive and need to be able to press firmly into my clitoris/g-spot to reach orgasm. For this reason, this toy didn't get me to orgasm quite as easily as my more rigid vibrators such as my Lelo Gigi. The rigidity is a personal preference for me and others might actually enjoy the more plushy feel. The Angelo can still provide a lot of pressure, but it just wasn't as easy to use for pressure as other toys in my collection. The slight flexibility may have detracted some during solo use, but it was actually beneficial for partnered use, since it made it much more comfortable when fitting between bodies.

Design / Shape / Size

I am incredibly thrilled with the design of this toy. The shape lends itself to be used to provide a variety of different types of stimulation to both the clitoris and the g-spot, and makes the toy easy to use in different situations both alone and with a partner. The toy is fairly short: around 5 inches in length and about 1.5 inches in diameter. This size worked well for vaginal penetration, since it was a good medium thickness and the perfect length to hit my g-spot. It was well designed and it will worth well for both beginners and advanced users.

The only thing this toy can't do in terms of insertion is provide deep stimulation near the cervix. Users that like deep stimulation should look elsewhere. The Angelo is fairly discreet and is extremely easy to travel with. While a user knowledgeable about toys would recognize it as a vibrator, it has a very tasteful design and doesn't immediately scream "sex toy." Because of its small size, it is very easy to store the Angelo in a safe place to hide it.

Functions / Performance / Controls

This toy is truly exemplary of the quality German engineering I've come to expect from Fun Factory toys. The vibrations are deep and rumbly and do not produce the numbing sensations characteristic of buzzy vibrators. The strongest vibrations can be felt in the lower 1/3 of the "wing" of the toy.

My taste in functions is rather boring and I pretty much use the static vibration function only, however, the Angelo does offer greater variety. In addition to the static function the Angelo has a slow pulse, medium paced pulse, and rapid pulse. The controls of this toy are incredibly simple and consist of only two buttons: a "+" and a "-" button. Pressing the "+" button turns on the toy and can increase the power and is also used to cycle through the functions. The "-" button turns down the vibrations and is also used to turn the toy off.

One of the things I like best about the buttons is that they are relatively hard to hit by accident during use. The Angelo produces insanely quiet vibrations, especially when the noise level of the toy is compared to the intensity of those vibrations. As a waterproof toy, this toy performed just as well in the water as during dry play. I don't own a bathtub so I haven't gotten to take this toy in the bath, but it accompanies me in the shower occasionally and has worked great for shower sex both alone and with a partner.

The Angelo is also rechargeable and comes with a "click and charge" port. The toy connects to its charger by magnet. The magnet is more than strong enough to connect easily to the toy, but is not strong enough for the toy to hang while charging - so it does have to charge on a flat surface. I didn't find the charging connection to be remotely finicky, and while the toy takes a very long time to charge, it lasts for around 4-5 hours if it is fully charged. When charging, the charger lights up red to indicate that the toy is not fully charged and this light then turns off when the charge is complete.

Care and Maintenance

This is one of the easiest toys to care for that I have ever used. Being a silicone toy, it is non-porous and will not hold on to bacteria at all. I usually use soap and warm water to clean it, which is especially easy to do since the toy is waterproof. To completely sterilize this toy a 10% bleach solution may be used. However, for typical use (if the toy is being used by only one individual), soap and water will be more than sufficient. The Angelo doesn't come with a fabric pouch to store it in, so I am currently trying to find one. At this point I just leave it uncovered inside my sex drawer, but I intend to get a pouch for it at some point.

The Angelo is silicone, so it is compatible with all water-based lubes. I would not recommend using silicone-based lube with this toy, since cheap silicone-based lube can bond with the toy and ruin it. Higher quality silicone-based lubes such as Pjur or Eros are compatible, but I would recommend doing a patch test of this lube before using it on the toy to make sure bonding doesn't occur.

Packaging

The packaging of this toy is very nice, but it isn't very discreet. The toy is displayed through plastic on the front of the box, and the box also has pictures of other Fun Factory products. All the pictures depict other toys and there are no porn stars or explicit sexual imagery. The box had a lot of instruction in just about every language you could ever want. I didn't feel like any of this was necessary, though, since the toy was so easy to figure out without it.

The magnetic plug came in a separate box from the vibrator itself, and was packaged similarly in a box that had a picture of it on the front and pictures of other Fun Factory products on the back. The box probably could be used for storage, but it is not ideal being that it is made of just plastic and cardboard. I don't think it would be an ideal gift box, either. I didn't dislike the packaging by any means, but it was not nearly as special as the packaging some toys such as Lelo, Zini, or Je Joue toys come with. I didn't buy the toy for the packaging, though, so I didn't feel like this detracted from my experience whatsoever.

Experience

I love this toy and am extremely happy with this purchase. Although this toy is on the pricier side, you get what you pay for. All Fun Factory toys I have used are comparable in quality to the other luxury toys I own, such as toys by Lelo. The Angelo also has the added benefit of being waterproof, which I greatly appreciated. I gave this toy 5 stars because I do think it deserves it for overall design. In terms of use for me personally, I think 4.5 stars might be more appropriate. While I think other users might really appreciate the slightly plushy texture of the tip of the toy it didn't work as well for my anatomy.

The plushiness was really nice for use with a partner and has made this toy one of my absolute favorites to use during partnered sex. However, when I was alone using this toy I found that it could build me up to orgasm when I held it on my clitoris and get me right on the edge of orgasm but that the toy's flexibility did not provide enough directed pressure to get me to climax. However, when I used this toy to build to orgasm and used my rigid Lelo Gigi to finish, it led to one of the most powerful full body orgasms of my life (more powerful then what my Gigi alone typically gives me, which is REALLY saying something). The flexibility may not have worked as well for me, but another user might find it ideal and I want to stress that.

Internally, the toy felt amazing. I will admit, though, that I bought this toy to be used externally. It feels great internally, but I personally am not a fan of using vibration on my g-spot and prefer to use rigid silicone or glass dildos if I want g-spot stimulation. For these reasons, this toy wasn't ideal for my body if I was just looking to get a g-spot orgasm. Due to the fact I bought the toy for primary use as a clitoral stimulator, I didn't mind this and actually I was surprised to find how much I loved how it felt inside me.

This toy has strengths and weaknesses like any other toy, but as an addition to my collection it has a perfect niche and fits in line with my other toys. For me personally, I find this toy shines best when used in the shower, with a partner on the clitoris, and as a warm-up toy for solo clitoral stimulation (with a more rigid toy to finish). I like to use it internally just because it feels good, but I still generally use glass toys if I'm looking for a g-spot orgasm. If you are looking for an extremely versatile toy that can be used for lots of different purposes, this is one of the best you can find. I think the fact that this toy can be used so many ways makes it a great option for a newer user who is still trying to determine what they like. This toy is a good gift since it will fit a lot of different bodies and anatomies. My Angelo definitely gets used very frequently and is absolutely one of my top picks in my collection. I would unquestionably buy another one if some tragedy occurred and my Angelo ever stopped working.
