So, you all know I have the best job ever here at 990WBOB. I really do. I get to do fun stuff like chat and test out some products of the sexually amazing kind at Fun Factory, one of the world's largest manufacturers of silicone erotic toys. I sat down with Alex Amend from Fun Factory, who helped shed some light on everything from Silicone to duo smartballs!
I’ve been in bed with my Little Paul for like, 18 hours, so here is what Alex had to say!
(Google Little Paul, then buy one, because it’s seriously the best vibrator I’ve ever, ever had the pleasure of loving.)
MD: Tell us more about Fun Factory!
AA: Fun Factory was founded in 1996 by two German engineers, Dirk Bauer and Michael Pahl - we were the first company in the world to create body-safe silicone vibrators. For nearly 20 years, Fun Factory has becoming known for innovative design and bright fun forms. Fun Factory continues to maintain a focus on quality design and manufacturing, all aspects of production from soup to nuts takes place at our facility in Bremen, Germany.
Fun Factory only uses the highest medical-grade silicone for our products as regulated by an independent organization. Because we manufacture in Germany, this also means our workers are treated with higher standards for health and safety over competitors who may design in Europe or the US but manufacture in countries with fewer workers rights. Fun Factory is the only adult novelty manufacturer whose employees are unionized.
Additionally, Fun Factory is focused on the environment; no finishing agents are used - all silicone is finished by hand so no harmful chemicals come in contact with our workers or our customers. Our packaging is completely recyclable, with no plastics or glues, and printed with soy-based inks.
MD: What is the most popular selling toy you have, and why?
AA: Our most popular toy is the Stronic Drei, which is the most recent addition to the Stronic line of toys. Using patented motors, the Stronic toys pulsate rather than vibrate, more closely mimicking the natural back-and-forth movement of lovemaking. The Stronic Drei is a great example of the innovation and unique design only found in Fun Factory products.
MD: Is your job like, the best job ever?
AA: It is usually pretty entertaining. We have a very small office here in the US of around 10 people, give or take, combined with being the adult industry allows for some liberal conversation on personal subjects probably not mentioned in most work environments.
MD: What is the difference between an uno ball and the duo balls? What does the duo do that the uno can't?
AA: The difference between the Smartballs Uno and Duo is really just size since not all bodies are the same. We recommend the Uno for beginners and women with a prolapsed or tilted uterus, then later graduating up to the Smartballs Duo. It’s additional weight provides a harder workout for the muscles of the pelvic floor.
MD: What sets Fun Factory aside from other silicone or even just sex toy manufacturers?
AA: What sets Fun Factory apart from other sex toy manufacturers is our luxury-level quality without losing focus on design practicality. Sex is fun and intimate objects should be healthy and of high quality.
Folks there you have it, straight from the source. I’m busy though, Little Paul needs a good workout. TTYL!
