/FUN FACTORY MOODY – 4″ insertable, 5.25″ inches in girth at the widest point, $99/139€
Not gonna lie, when I unwrapped my review package from Fun Factory and saw the Moody’s happy little silhouette staring up at me I might’ve felt my heart sink a little bit. It’s not my bag. It looks like it’s wearing a strange peplum getup and it has that dreaded birdy beak thing going on at the tip, a cheap party bag vibrator hallmark and something that I’ve found to be at best ineffectual and at worst, scrapey.
I want to be able to say I was wrong because I love being surprised and there are so many rave reviews for this wobbly little weirdo, but the Moody actively disagrees with my insides. There’s no two ways about it – sometimes you meet toys that literally hate your guts, and this is one of them. The poky little tip feels like it’s rummaging around in my guts, somehow missing my g-spot at every turn, and the ribs on the shaft grate and roll against the top wall of my vag in a way that I can only describe as visceral.
The silicone on the Moody seems to be draggier than the kind on the Cayona and I’m speculating that this is why it feels so deeply unpleasant; I have to use way more Sliquid Sassy (my first choice for Fun Factory’s curiously gritty silicone) than I do for the Cayona and I seem to be one of the only sex bloggers in the universe whose enjoyment isn’t upped by spraying lube everywhere with wild abandon. It’s just more faff than it’s worth.
On the plus side, Fun Factory’s button design is spot on as always (DEDICATED KILL SWITCH YEEEE) and the vibrations on the Moody are rumbly and ramp up to a thumping high speed on the highest continuous setting. They manage to travel all the way through the bulk of the silicone including that bizarre looking ruff at the base, which in my opinion is the Moody’s saving grace; using it internally might make me cringe, but rotating the ruff against my clit sets me up for one of those orgasms that go all the way down to my toes. That said, I still can’t recommend the Moody based on the fact that it gives satisfying external orgasms. Lots of things do that! It’s $99! You know what else you can get for $99? A killer bullet, or slap an extra $30 down and get yourself a bedroom icon. Sorry Fun Factory – I feel like the mark was heavily missed on this one.
/FUN FACTORY CAYONA – 4″ insertable, 4.7″ inches in girth at the widest, £69/$99/69€
The Cayona wouldn’t look out of place on sale or used in an educational demo about self pleasure at yr local Women’s Fest and what I mean when I say that is it absolutely looks like a vulva. It’s got a little clit to go on your clit! Labial folds! It’s very, very pretty and being a certified Pussy Enthusiast I desperately want to be able to blindly rec it but unfortunately I caaan’t because y’know, trustworthy reviews, having standards, etc.
One word I’d use to describe the Cayona is manageable – the texture is interesting but not so much so that it’s abrasive or too much, the size makes it co-operative on days where it feels like my cervix is really low and the silicone isn’t super soft but it does have some flex to it. It’s gentle. I’ve managed to use it when I had a menstrual cup in which is something that has never, ever happened before; attempting to use toys like that usually feels obstructive and uncomfortable but the tapered tip, flex, and overall petite size of the Cayona makes it ideal for rag week shenanigans.
The vibrations are essentially the same as the ones on the Moody as they lean rumbly and because they travel throughout the bulk of the vibrator, not just concentrated in the base or the tip, it means it makes a mean external vibe. Slicking a little bit of coconut oil into the central dip and gently pressing the full length of it across my cunt makes for a chill ~masturbation experience~ or just utilising the tip like a big, wiggly pinpoint vibe.
In regards to the dual stimulation factor, the Cayona doesn’t touch my clit in a way that’s anything exciting or special and the shape obviously doesn’t provide the kind of thumb-like full coverage I prefer but I can still come with it in the same way I can come from getting railed from behind with a pillow under my hips. It’s not proof that whoever’s doing the railing’s blessed with the magic touch, it’s just that I’m being repeatedly bumped into something and after long enough it’s gonna happen.
In my eyes, the Cayona’s a bit like the 2am kebab of the vibrator world. It does the job and it’s a pretty good time, but something else could’ve done it better (12″ stuffed crust with every topping my drunk ass is still capable of pronouncing). If you’re specifically after a short, slim vibrator with rumbly vibrations and some unusual but not scary texture this could be a frontrunner, but I wouldn’t get too hung up on the idea of this little thing being able to hit your clit and your internal bits at the same time. I say that about every rabbit but I’m only so insistent cause it’s true; imo you’re nearly always better off using two separate things at the same time, but if you’ve got your heart set on a pretty little vibrator shaped like a pastel pussy then this is just about ideal.
Full disclosure – I was sent the Moody & Cayona directly from the team at Fun Factory in exchange for my honest review.
