I love partner toys, when they are good (and fortunately they usually are ;)). No matter how sure you are that you and your partner are on the same page, these toys just move you to the next level.
It’s no secret that my favorite “helpers” in this category are the We-vibe 4 and Share by Fun Factory, so when the spinning variant of the Sharu came on the market, it was clear that I NEEDED to have one. And it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t compare the two pieces 😀
Video from the unboxing:
It’s clear at a glance that vibrating patron (we’ll get to that later) isn’t the only innovation Sharevibe has undergone. Compared to its non-vibrating brother, its phallic section is much narrower and perfectly smooth – without any protrusions. On the one hand, that’s quite a shame, because these protrusions are exactly what I enjoyed. On the other hand, this new shape makes the Sharevibe much easier to insert. You will appreciate this especially during anal sex.
The other end has also been narrowed, which I think is a very sensible move. Finally, I don’t have to worry about whether the little cvalda will get inside me and how much it will hurt 🙂 Now all it takes is a little drop of lube (or to loosen me up a bit – which is always a better option) and it’s cool inside.
Otherwise, the most noticeable difference between these pieces are of course the vibrations. The cartridge is quite large, so it’s very easy to handle (tucking in and out of the strap-on). It’s admittedly a silly thing that you don’t think about much, but the fact that you can use the patronka outside of the strap-on, is a nice finding. And you can immediately make play with it more enjoyable – it’s a great lap tease when your partner is coming from behind, or in more classic positions (hobbyist and missionary) when you put it between you.
And my tip? Tie your partner up (ideally blindfolding him/her as well) and run the cartridge over his/her body… of course, focus on the lap the most 🙂 The cartridge fits perfectly in your hand and thanks to its size it can go everywhere… and it’ll get you all hot and bothered too 🙂
When you play, you have to recharge
The cartridge is recharged by a magnetic charger, which we are used to at FUN FACTORY. It is reversible, so it doesn’t matter how you connect the cartridge. I don’t know about you, but I hate chargers that can only be connected one way – it’s so unintuitive 🙂
A bit of technology, or how to actually operate it
The controls are absolutely simple and intuitive. Anyone can do it. There’s a single red button on the black cartridge that controls everything. Long hold to turn vibrations on and off, quick presses to switch vibrations. It’s simple and intuitive… The control is absolutely faultless.
Shape, size, and so on…
In shape, the Sharevibe is similar to the letter “J” – this is also a small change from the non-vibrating version (the classic Share mimics the letter “L”). This change is due to the larger layer of silicone between the two parts. I understand that it’s due to the cartridge, but the strap-on has lost (well reduced, but for me it’s pretty similar) one very important function for me – when I strapped on the classic Share, it pleasurably undulated and teased my clitoris, it felt completely natural and I almost felt like it was part of me. Sharevibe does tease the clitoris too, but it’s not as intense a sensation.
The Sharevibe, on the other hand, has a vibrating cartridge that gets the whole silicone piece awesome moving and you’ll experience a feeling of pleasure you’ve never experienced before. It growls inside you, while rippling with the natural motion from the thrusts, and it still teases your clitoris. It’s a combination that gets me off my knees every time. And when you add to that the opportunity to give your partner a good pounding… there’s no need to talk, that’s what you want 😀
A few numbers
- Longest part: 22 cm
- Shortest part: 11,5 cm
- Longer part: 3.4 cm
- Shortest part: 3.8 cm
The Sharevibe is made of medical grade silicone, which ensures it’s safe for health, and also waterproof (without the cartridge of course), so it’s perfect for bathroom play too :D.
For me, silicone is the best material to make toys out of. But it also has certain weaknesses – it catches tiny dust particles on itself, and you have to watch out for lubricants. Anyway, you’ll forget about these little things as soon as you touch it – it’s beautifully velvety smooth and just right for your hand:)
If I had to choose between the original Share and Sharevibe, I would want both 😀 But if I really had to choose, I would choose Sharevibe. Admittedly, when I thrust, my clitoris isn’t irritated as much (which after previous experiences with Share was really disappointing), but the vibrations that go through me thanks to the cartridge totally make up for that disappointment. Plus Sharevibe can be used with or without the cartridge – then it’s just up to you what you fancy.
