On any given day, women have a ton of high-quality gender-specific sex toys to choose from – dildos, vibrating bullets, clitoral massagers, etc. The only thing missing is a manservant to clean up after the party is over. And since that’s probably not ever going to happen, the best thing we ladies can hope for is a well-made wonder wand that lets us play however we want to.
Apparently, the guys up at the Fun Factory take their moniker seriously because they’ve managed to create a female sex toy that’s truly entertaining. Even the mere sight of the Volta in action is amusing. Designed with women in mind, this toy is also the perfect addition to any couple’s play routine thanks to its innovative functionality and ergonomic shape.
What Is the Fun Factory Volta?
Made primary for women, the makers of the Volta screamed “Power to the Pussy” as they stacked this toy on the shelves. Developed using state-of-the-art technology, our showcase device offers a unique experience through its scientifically-researched design. According to sex-perts, blood flow is increased significantly through tender tapping to the labia. Add a gentle rumble to the mix and you get a ridiculous orgasm every single time.
Handheld and powerful, the Volta is a female-inspired sex toy that, quite honestly, can be used by men as well. Those who enjoy this toy the most use it solo, with a partner during intercourse or while giving or receiving oral stimulation. It’s not exactly ideal for those who climax from penetration only, but it’s an excellent tool for stamina training and whole-body teasing.
The Main Features
Although the Volta works by using a combination of unique features, it reminded me of a run-of-the-mill rabbit vibrator in the way it functions. While it’s not designed for insertion, the flimsy flaps at the top of the toy operate similarly – you know, like a carwash for your clit. Reaching all the nooks and crannies, the skin-safe silicone pads shimmy and shake at varying speeds and with different patterns depending on which of the 12 settings you select.
Designed to be a handheld external stimulator, Fun Factory’s beloved Volta brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “Just the tip.” Obviously made by fellow perverts who know how to have a good time (and who don’t kiss and tell), the Volta comes with the following freak-worthy features:
- A rechargeable battery
- A charge indicator light
- It includes a low battery warning light as well.
- Non-porous, medical-grade silicone material
- A water-friendly casing (a.k.a. it’s submersible)
- A travel lock button
- An ergonomically sound, built-in control interface
- A total length of 7.4 inches (18.9 cm)
- A total diameter of 1.9 inches (4.7 cm)
- A looped easy-grip handle
Since variety is the still the spice of life, the Fun Factory folks consistently offer sex toys in an array of trendy and attractive colors too. The Volta is no exception. Choose from options like vitamin (neon orange), blackberry (purple) or petrol (turquoise). And while none of the FF toys come with a manufacturer’s warranty, they all feature some of the best German engineering this side of the Mississippi.
What Comes in the Box?
The toy’s container, on the other hand, is a different story. Not only is it relatively unattractive but it’s also unsuitable for storage. Considering we don’t get a protective pouch of any kind from these people, it would have been nice for the box to double as such.
Either way, here is what you DO get for the money:
- The Fun Factory Volta Clitoral Stimulator (of course)
- An instruction manual
That’s all, folks! No lube samples, no toy cleaner, just the bare essentials. The Volta doesn’t come with a power cable either because it uses the brand’s patented Click n’ Charge system which utilizes an internal, integrated battery. As mentioned, you won’t get a product guarantee but you will get a handful of warnings to help keep your device in top condition for as long as humanly possible.
How It Feels
I’ll just say this and then I’ll move on the explain: the Volta feels so good that it gives you the urge to penetrate. Does that make any sense? The feature combination works together seamlessly and overwhelms the senses so intensely that it’s nearly impossible not to want more. In other words, the Volta has a peculiar way of tapping into human nature to bring out the animal in person using it.
TIP: I found the Volta ideal for all kinds of things like clitoral stimulation, nipple teasing, intensified blow jobs, precision handies, etc. My advice: don’t be afraid to experiment with this thing.
The Cheers and Jeers
The Fun Factory freaks may have been churning out high-quality sex toys since 1996, but that doesn’t mean everything they make it perfect. Even the handy-dandy Volta has a few flaws:
- Batter Up – The internal, integrated battery is not only powerful its also rechargeable.
- On average, expect to get about 45-60 minutes of play from a full charge, even when you use the Volta on high speed continuously.
- Wet n’ Wild – This toy is completely submersible, meaning it can be taken into the bath or shower at will.
- Pussy Power – The Volta is surprisingly powerful for being so small and has excellent power transfer regardless of its flimsy/flexible tips.
- Tiny Tim – Compact and lightweight, this thing is perfect for traveling (and remember, it has a travel lock too).
- The Magic Number – Of all the things that come in twelves – eggs, horoscopes, disciples – the settings on the Volta are probably my favorite.
- Everybody Flap Your Hands – Those super-smooth silicone flaps though. . .
- Take My Money – Coming in at just under a hundred dollars, this toy is one of the least expensive pleasure wands on the market.
Pussy Patience – Don’t get too excited when you pull the Volta from its box. It will take between 4 and 6 hours to get it charged up and ready to go.
Hand Job – Although the Volta uses a rather ergonomic design, the button placement and handle size may not be suitable for everyone (especially when things get hot, heavy and slippery).
Stranger Danger – Fluids such as lipstick/balm, edible oil, sunscreen and certain types of lubrication can completely ruin this toy. You have been warned.
Obviously, planning ahead and being mindful of how you use and maintain the Volta will improve your experience. However, there’s little anyone can do for you if the handle isn’t a good fit for your hand. Good thing this toy is for couples, eh?
The Final Verdict
Overall, the Fun Factory Volta is a superb sex toy that, despite its few flaws, can easily transform you and your lover’s experience in the bedroom by providing simultaneous stimulation and precision pleasure. Although not the most high-tech thing on the market, the FFV has all the user-friendly features we know and love: a rechargeable battery, skin-safe materials, touch-sensitive buttons, and a waterproof casing.
The only thing I could ask for is a longer battery life (and maybe a little Bluetooth compatibility with other toys in their lineup). Some of the biggest names in the industry are making interactive sex toys that sync up with one another. If the Fun Factory boys ever latch on to that idea they may get catapulted into the Sex Toy Hall of Fame.
