If you’re anything like me, you probably feel like you’ve seen just about everything on the sex toy market at this point. As professional penis pricks, we’re all pretty picky about what we bring into the bedroom. That increase in expectation has led many manufacturers to start thinking outside the box.
In a world where most male masturbators are big, bulky squish-holes, it’s rather attention-getting when something different rolls out of the factory – the Fun Factory in this particular case. Their new Manta vibrating stroker is something new entirely, with a revolutionary design and features that will make your toes curl.
What Is Fun Factory Manta?
Never before seen on the market, the Manta is marketed as a men’s toy but it’s surprisingly fit for couples. Designed to offer superbly versatile pleasure, this bad boy is not only powerful but it’s also more compact than any other male masturbator in the industry. And while it may have a curious appearance and take some getting used to, it can, when used properly, provide a unique sexual experience for all parties involved.
The Main Features
According to the name, the Manta’s primary feature is the powerful vibrations produced by its industrial-strength motor. However, I think that’s probably the least impressive thing about this toy. In fact, I believe the device’s adaptability to its environment is mind-boggling to say the least.
What I mean by that is this: you can use the Manta by yourself or with a partner, and in more ways than one. Depending on your desires, this tiny titan can insert itself into the situation in the following ways:
- DURING INTERCOURSE
The Manta fits snugly between you and your lover’s body, turning your dick into a wireless vibrator.
- WHILE GETTING A BLOW JOB
Endure more intense oral orgasms while enjoying a curious deep-throat sensation by incorporating the Manta during a blowjob.
- ALL BY YOUR LONESOME
Solo play is still okay, especially since the Manta is designed for hands-on stroking and allows for precision stimulation.
The Fun Factory Manta has an extremely user-friendly design too, with a sleek body and an easy-grip handle (although I thought the button placement was a bit off). The top of the toy features a fork-like division of firm yet flexible prongs that are strategically placed to encompass the penis and intensify vibrations. Furthermore, those little ridges on the prongs are ideal for pooling up lube and keeping things running “smoothly.”
TIP: The Manta can be used on your lady-friend as well. That forked prong is perfect for a quick clit massage.
Speaking of intensified vibrations, this toy offers six different function speeds and six distinct vibration patterns via its pre-programmed interface that’s controlled by three built-in buttons on the front of the device. It has a travel lock function and the battery which runs it all is fully rechargeable. Made with skin-safe medical-grade silicone and German engineering, the Manta is also waterproof and whisper quiet.
Here is a list of the secondary features I think are worth mentioning:
- A charge indicator light
- A total length of 7.1 inches (18 cm)
- A total width of 2 inches (5.2 cm)
- A long battery life (about 120 minutes per charge)
- Two colors to choose from:
- Deep Sea Blue (that’s the one I have and it’s super sexy)
- Moss Green (reminds me of hunting gear and kind of looks like it too)
With a discreet, user-guided wand-style design, masturbators can target their sweet spot while enjoying the view. Think of it as a tuning fork for your family jewels. In some cases, it’s certainly a better choice than using a hyped up fifi.
What Comes in the Box?
For such an interesting sex toy, the box it comes in is boring as shit. On the bright side, the innocuous picture on the front lends itself to the whole “hunting gear/power tool” thing, so very few people will ever find out how much of a disgusting pervert you are. Inside the box you’ll find the following items:
- The Fun Factory Manta Vibrating Stroker (of course)
- An instruction manual
This toy gets charged in a revolutionary way as well – no cords or cables required. The battery is attached and integrated into the device itself, using the original Magnetic charger of the brand’s patented Click n’ Charge system to generate its power. This features not only makes the Manta so much more travel-friendly but it also makes care and maintenance super easy.
NOTE: Although the folks at the Fun Factory insist on using their patented TOYFLUID lube only, you won’t get any samples of it in the box. There won’t be any toy cleaner either, just so you know.
How It Feels
As I said in the beginning, the Manta takes some getting used to at first. However, once you’re over the learning curve it can be one of the best sexual experiences you’ve ever had. Don’t tell the boys at the Fun Factory, but I found about a half a dozen new ways to use my Manta and none of them were mentioned in the clever marketing campaign.
With all that said, I don’t suggest using the Manta without plenty of lube. The prongs are so precise and the vibes are so powerful that, without some sort of buffer between the toy and your penis, things can get uncomfortable quickly. And while this toy is built for accuracy and agility, the Manta won’t ever replace our beloved full-fledged fifis because it requires so much meticulous attention to use and doesn’t provide as much of an all-encompassing sensation.
The Cheers and Jeers
Overall, the Manta is a pretty robust little machine. However, I had to learn a few things the hard way. For instance, allowing certain oils or creams to come in contact with the device is a terrible idea. Keep sunscreens, edible oils and lip balm far away from this thing unless wasting money gets you off.
- Charges Filed – Rechargeable toys are kind of the standard nowadays, right?
- The Dirty Dozen – With 6 different speeds and 6 varied vibration patterns, there are a dozen chances to get it right.
- Penile Precision – This device is designed for exactness and thus can be held under your dick’s corona, along the shaft or pressed against the base for a variety of pleasurable sensations that are manually controlled for pin-point accuracy.
- Fork in the Road – The forked design of the prongs is outstanding. In fact, this toy would be a worthless piece of shit without it.
- Late Bloomer – It takes between six and eight hours of continual charge to get the Manta up and running for the first time.
- Tiny Tim – Made to fit between bodies and be easily gripped in the hand, the Manta can be somewhat cumbersome to manipulate in the heat of the moment.
The Final Verdict
In general, I can see why someone would want the Manta in their sex toy suitcase. Still, I can also see how it’s not the device for everybody. Depending on your preferences and situation, however, Fun Factory’s Manta might possibly be your cherry on top. Priced just right and made with high standards and skill, this toy is definitely one worth considering.
