Fun Factory Be One Couples’ Finger Vibrator Review

You’d be for­giv­en for expect­ing anoth­er glow­ing Fun Factory toy review, but their Be One fin­ger vibra­tor is the combo-breaker.

My vagi­na kept eject­ing their self-thrusting Stronic Real because it made me come so ridicu­lous­ly quick­ly and often — I had to keep push­ing it back in. The Fun Factory Bootie butt plug was among my picks for the best beginner-to-intermediate anal toys. And I typed, “brb going to lie in bed and cry” in my notes about the Volta when it made me squirt.

But as we move towards Fun Factory’s small­er exter­nal vibra­tors, the com­po­nents lose their grav­i­tas. Unlike the Volta, the Laya II does­n’t fea­ture the same G5 motors as the big­ger Fun Factory vibes. It’s good enough that I gave it to a friend as her first vibra­tor, but I was­n’t starry-eyed. And the Fun Factory Be One? I could sum up my feel­ings toward it in one word: “No.”

The moment I turned on the Fun Factory Be One, my initial optimism was replaced with a sigh and a shake of the head.

It’s like when you get a glass of water that you want­ed to be room tem­per­a­ture, but it’s just a lit­tle bit warmer and tastes fun­ny. Nothing earth-shattering, nor shock­ing. You’re just a lit­tle miffed and wish the world could be a shade better.

I should have known bet­ter. Many review­ers who loved the Volta also hat­ed the minia­ture Volita due to its lack of pow­er. Thus, I was fool­ish to expect any­thing good from the even tinier Fun Factory Be One.

This thing is about 2 cm at the bot­tom, where it flares to curve over the fin­gers, and less than 1 cm at the tip. The motors in both ends suck. There are 4 speeds and 1 teas­ing pattern.

But that’s not rel­e­vant if you’re not going to buy the Fun Factory Be One any­way. Please don’t.

It’s like some­one com­bined Fun Factory’s flut­tery vibra­tions with the surface-level nature of the VeDO Bam Mini. Can it get me off? Yeah. Is its pow­er accept­able for the size? Sure. And while the Be One can fit between bod­ies dur­ing inter­course with­out much bulk, so can a tried-and-true bullet.

Consider this for perspective: the We-Vibe Tango, the gold standard of rumbly bullet vibrators, is a mere $10 more.

Thus, I’m not excit­ed about the Fun Factory Be One’s exis­tence. I’d instead steer my read­ers towards one of the following:

  1. A cheap­er fin­ger vibe that’s on the buzzy side, but will give you more bang for your buck
  2. A wear­able bul­let that’s way rum­bli­er and with­in the Be One’s price range
If you’re looking for the former, consider the Blush Novelties Nöje B6 or VeDO Yumi.

The Nöje B6 is a kit that comes with the Exposed Nocturnal bul­let and a sil­i­cone sleeve that fits between the fin­gers. And if you’ve read my full Exposed Nocturnal review, you know it’s a steal for the price — higher-pitched than the Tango and loud­er, but more intense at the top speeds. The VeDO Yumi isn’t as pow­er­ful, but much more dis­creet, and its curves make it more ver­sa­tile for cou­ples’ play.

If you want to invest a little more money into a finger vibrator with a purring rumble, get a Hot Octopuss Digit or Je Joue Classic Bullet.

The Digit’s tim­bre is rare in bul­let vibra­tors. It’s low-pitched and thud­dy, putting it among my Best Sex Toys of 2019 list. The main down­sides, though, are that the fin­ger strap is rigid, designed for right-hand use, and not remov­able. I don’t mind that, but you might. Read my full reviews of the Hot Octopuss Digit and Amo (the ver­sion with­out a fin­ger loop) to decide.

In con­trast, the Je Joue Classic Bullet comes with a flex­i­ble strap. It does­n’t quite con­tend with the We-Vibe Tango, but that does­n’t mat­ter to me when its pitch is so deep. It’s one of the rum­bli­est cli­toral vibra­tors you can get for under $60.

Plus! Both the Hot Octopuss Digit and Je Joue Classic Bullet include pat­terns and a full 3‑button con­trol pan­el. If you’re picky about speed con­trol like I am, you might end up lik­ing them even more than the We-Vibe Tango.
