Astrovibes Gemini - traditional vibrator by Fun Factory - review by Lavendar

Astrovibes Gem

Gemini is a traditional vibrator with multiple vibrations and a ribbed shaft. Although it's not waterproof, this vibe is great for solo or partner play. More advanced users will probably need stronger vibrations, but this would be great for beginners.

extremely useful review


Astrovibes Gemini is a vibrator and personal massager made by Fun Factory. I received this toy as a free gift with my order when they were discontinuing the product. Gemini is good for solo play or to use with a partner. It's great for vaginal penetration and the ribbed texture feels nice when massaging your clit. When fully inserted, it provides nice fullness with its girth. Gemini probably won't find your G-spot even though it has some flexibility down the shaft. I would not recommend this for anal play because it does not have a flared base.
One of the things I like about Gemini is how quiet it is, it barely sounds louder than a cell phone vibrating. This vibe would be great for users with roommates. Although it's not waterproof, Gemini still has it's uses.

Material / Texture

Gemini is made of 100% silicone and has a safety rating of 10. The texture is mostly smooth with light ribbing along the shaft. This vibe is also hypoallergenic, non porous and latex and phthalates free. Gemini has no odor and does not hold odors after use. The shaft has some flexibility to it, Gemini can bend towards the middle of the shaft. The bending is not enough to provide G-spot stimulation, I couldn't even find mine with this toy.

    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

This is a traditional vibe with a slightly tapered shape along the shaft that makes insertion easy. The tip is rounded and not pointy at all. It is yellow with a red and black dial base control. Gemini is 7 1/2" long in total, only 6 1/2" are insertable. I've found that I need to use more lubricant with toys made of silicone. Gemini's ribbed texture has some drag, so a good amount of water-based lube is necessary for slickness. The circumference is 5 1/2" with a diameter of 1 3/4".
The ribbing along the shaft forms the shape of a woman's curves along with hands. This is meant to signify the Gemini astrological symbol.
Honestly this is the ugliest, most unattractive vibrator I own. I hated the color and overall aesthetic of this toy, but its performance has made me keep it around, and for a while, I used it quite often during masturbation. Now it's still in my toy box, but it is definitely not the vibe I reach for first.
Due to the tapered shape of the shaft, this toy would be good for both beginners and more advanced users. It's easy to insert, and the size is not super intimidating unless it's fully inserted. I enjoyed the fullness provided by the girth at the end of the shaft. The vibrations would be powerful enough for beginners, but advanced users probably wouldn't be satisfied.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Gemini has multispeed vibrations that are surprisingly powerful. The dial base control is located right under the AA battery compartment. The motor is located down the middle of the shaft which I liked because it allows the vibrations to be felt along the entire toy not just the end like other vibrators. Gemini is not waterproof and does not have an O-ring. It is very discreet; even on the highest setting, this vibe can barely be heard.
Gemini arrived with a product guide from Fun Factory and free samples of Toyfluid which is their water based lubricant. I thought this was a nice touch.

I wasn't expecting much from this toy since it was a free gift. I enjoyed Gemini for stimulating my clit with the vibrations and interesting ribbing. Inserting it was easy, and I like the slightly tapered shape very much. My boyfriend loves using it on me while he is performing oral. Gemini also has pretty powerful vibrations, add to that the silicone material and you have a winner! I was very pleased with this gift, and use it mostly during masturbation to stimulate my clit.
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

This toy is pretty easy to maintain. Soap and warm water or an antibacterial toy cleaner is enough to keep your vibe clean. Gemini is not waterproof, so it should not be submerged during washing, but a splash here and there should be fine. This vibe is made of silicone, so it should not be used with a silicone based lubricant since this could degrade the material. Gemini tends to attract dust and lint, so I would advise keeping it in a pouch or box away from these particles.
    • Easy to clean


Gemini arrived in a cardboard box with a cutout in front to show the toy. The vibe was packaged in a plastic shell inside the box along with the free lube samples and Fun Factory product guide. It is kind of large and bulky for storage, I store my Gemini in a separate pouch.
    • Recyclable
Follow-up commentary
I still enjoy my Astrovibes Gemini. It comes out to play every once in a while. It is definitely not as powerful as some of my other high end toys but it is still effective in combination with another toy. Still a solid silicone vibrator.
