Astrovibes Capricorn - traditional vibrator by Fun Factory - review by Red Riding Hood

My orgasmic destiny is written in the stars?

This is a good traditional vibe with a cute flare. It's not knock-your-socks-off amazing, but it's pleasant and gave me plenty of pleasure! I suppose it's a hit-or-miss product and it really just depends on what you are searching for, but I would personally recommend this!

Use

This is a traditional vibrator with a fun flare! Intended for vaginal stimulation, this product offers the bare minimum in function. That doesn't make it a bad product, it just means that you can't expect it to do anything special. This product wouldn't be a bad idea for beginners, but it could be useful to anyone looking for an affordable vibe. Especially when you consider this product is made of silicone.

Material / Texture

This product is made of silicone by Fun Factory. I've heard some negative things about Fun Factory silicone and after using this product, I don't know why. I found it to be just fine. It is food-grade, hypo-allergenic, latex-free and phthalates-free. Also, due to the totally bodysafe material, it is non-porous. The handle/battery compartment/turndial is a cheaper plastic, so keep that in mind. The material has a little bit of a plush and a bend, but no more than a standard rubber. It isn't very "squishy" at all. The material has quite a bit of drag, but isn't a bother with the least bit of wetness. If you use lube, it will probably last awhile, as this silicone didn't seem to eat up lubricant as bad as some of my other toys. There is no smell or taste to this material, which is nice. That all said, there is nothing special about the material to give it any extra sensation. It's fairly smooth.

Design / Shape / Size

I absolutely love the design of this toy. Keeping with the astrological theme, the design is that of a goat. Thankfully, this toy had no REAL face on it, unlike the similar Aries toy. There is a pointed tip that is like a face, but without eyes and a mouth. There are horns that sprout from the top and carry on down the shaft. I love the design because it's almost shaped like a real penis in some ways. The way the horns arch over the top reminds me of the head of a real penis where the frenulum is. The size is a little long and "beefy" for me, but not so much that I can't use it. The head of the toy is a bit tapered, which helps. The curve of the head also stimulates my g-spot, although indirectly. I find this to be more comfortable than abrupt or pointed g-spot toys. The gentle curve suits my body better. It's not really discreet enough to be considered a "discreet toy". It's definitely phallic in shape and not really small enough to hide in a bag or purse. It's not the biggest toy, but it's also not the most compact.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Function-wise, I wasn't super impressed, nor was I let-down. The vibrations are controlled by a turn-dial at the base of the toy, which has a lot of play in the speed/intensity. The vibrations reach a fairly intense level, which isn't going to be that of a body massager, but is definitely sufficient for internal vibrations. I personally prefer to use the lower settings unless I am using the toy as a foreplay tool on the outside of my body. It's a bit loud, but what can you expect from something that's made a bit cheaper? It's not going to wake your neighbors, but you probably wouldn't want this on high if your walls are thin and your roommate is home. It is not waterproof, so be careful about how you clean it. The general use of the product is easy to practice and understand. The batteries are easy to load and the controls manipulate pretty conveniently.

Care and Maintenance

Being silicone, this product is non-porous, so a regular soap/toy cleaner and warm water washing will do just fine in most cases. Of course, you can boil silicone, but I've yet to find a way to remove the electronics from the shaft for any sort of boiling or dishwasher machine-type cleaning. Of course you won't want to use silicone lube on this, either. I store it in its box that it came with, but you could store it in almost anything you'd like. It doesn't seem to attract lint as bad as rubber or jelly, so a cloth bag might be fine. As I am not 100 percent sure that Fun Factory is awesome quality, I wouldn't risk storing this next to another toy.

Packaging

This comes in a clamshell-type of case that is stored in an outer box that has all of the wonderful information on the product. You get a little lube sample and some information on the box, but nothing that is of great value. There are some care instructions and other brand-name info for you to read, but don't expect to be "wowed" by learning something new and exciting. It's a cute box and would be fine for a gift, but it is certainly not discreet enough to tote about without wrapping. It's not tacky, though.

Personal comments

It's not a wonderful vibe in the way of performance, but for something cheaper, simple and non-realistic, I really enjoyed this. The shape seemed perfect for my body and hit all of the right spots. This is rare for me as most toys just miss the mark entirely, or are too pin-pointed for the Gspot stimulation that I like.
Follow-up commentary
I really like this toy. It's not super strong, which is good for my delicate parts. It also has a nice feel when wet that my other silicone doesn't have. The shape is unique and the design is interesting. For a traditional vibe, I'm super pleased. This isn't the toy I use the most, but I do like it when I want something different. It doesn't guzzle battery power and it offers subtle stimulation up to moderate vibration.
