Fun Factory Little Paul G-Spot Vibrator

Lately I’ve had a thing for bugs. I don’t know why. I don’t like bugs. In fact, I’m very girly about bugs. Nonetheless, I’m in love my new best friend, Fun Factory’s Little Paul, the caterpillar. He, yes I did say “he,” is just so adorable! He’s more than your average vibrator.

Little Paul has 8 levels of straight vibration and three pulsation patterns. His vibrations start out soooo mildly I can hardly tell he’s on. While his vibrations don’t quite hit wild for me, they do get me off. They are also more surfacey and buzzy than deep and throbby, but not as buzzy as my other AAA battery vibrators. His pulsation patterns start at long, slow pulses and continue through short and fast, to shorter and faster pulses. These I love! The first pulse setting is what did me in on my first go round.

Little Paul’s three pulsation patterns feel something like this-
1. Buuuuzzzzz buuuuzzzzz buuuuzzzzz buuuuzzzzz
2. Buuzz buuzz buuzz buuzz
3. Buz buz buz buz buz

I really like the placement of Little Paul’s buttons on his stomach rather than the traditional twisty bottom of many vibrators. He has two buttons, + and -. The + button is above the – button and slightly extended which makes it easy to tell the difference even in my excited haze. The push button technology works very well and truly makes Little Paul a one-handed vibrator. However, the base and buttons can get slippery the wetter I get, which can be a bit distracting.

It’s very simple to navigate Little Paul’s settings. To turn him on you simply press down on the + button, then use the same button to increase the vibration level. Once you’ve hit the highest level, hold the button down for 2 seconds for pulsation pattern #1. The + button then cycles you through the pulsation patterns. To return to straight vibrations, press once on the – button and you are instantly at the highest vibration. To scroll down through the vibrations and to turn Little Paul off keep pressing the – button.

Little Paul runs on 2 AAA batteries. (Please provide your own; they are not included.) This may be part of the reason I have mixed feelings about his vibrations. On the one hand, they are somewhat weaker than I’d like them to be. On the other hand, his highest levels are high enough to get me off and I love the pulsation patterns. Fun Factory does suggest you use rechargeable batteries but also states the 1.2 V rechargeables result in a “slight decrease in maximum motor performance.” I’m using non-rechargeable 1.5 V batteries (bad girl!) and I’ve given Little Paul a number of serious workouts. After several hours of use, I have seen no impact on his batteries. Remember, to extend the life of your batteries and Little Paul’s motor it’s important to remove them when Little Paul is not in use.

Little Paul is made by Fun Factory in all his 100% plushiest-silicone-ever glory. I love silicone because it is phthalate-free, latex-free, and body-safe. Little Paul’s plush silicone feels good everywhere! He is great on my nipples and labia as well as fun to trace down my body. There is a slight drag with the silicone so, as always, be sure to use lubricant. Speaking of lube, remember to use water-based lube only with Little Paul. Silicone-based lubricants can break down the silicone of his body and melt him, which would be oh so sad. Just to be safe, remember to keep your silicone toys from touching in storage as the same thing can happen.

All sex toys should be cleaned before and after each use. Silicone is very easy to clean and share between partners. Simply wash with soap and water (Which you can easily do because Little Paul is waterproof- it shows him swimming right on the package!) or use your favorite sex toy cleaner. You can completely sterilize silicone with a 10% bleach solution; 9 parts water, 1 part bleach. Of course, you may prefer to cover Little Paul with a condom to make switching between partners a breeze. While you actually can boil silicone and wash it with no soap in the top drawer of your dishwasher, do not do this with Little Paul. He does have a motor after all, and I, for one, would like to keep it in excellent working order! Little Paul is only as waterproof as you treat him, so be sure his cap is screwed on tightly before washing.

Speaking both of motors and being waterproof, Little Paul holds up very well in the bath and the shower. I don’t feel really confident submerging him, but that is my paranoia and not a reflection on his ability to dive, dive, dive! Little Paul’s cap closes very securely and Fun Factory touts him as being waterproof. My experience supports this claim. After using Little Paul in the shower or tub, unscrew his cap, remove his batteries, and let him air dry completely.

Little Paul is part of Fun Factory’s miniVIBES line and when you slip him inside, you’ll know it. He is 5 ½” long, with 4 ¼” being insertable, and 1 ¼” in diameter. Although he may be small, he gets the job done! Part of the reason for this is that Little Paul is textured, which I love. In fact his ribbing was one of the reasons I was attracted to him in the first place! The ribbing definitely adds to the sensation for me, but is also mild enough not to distract most users. As Little Paul is not very long or wide, those looking for a more filling vibe might be disappointed. If this is the case, consider Little Paul’s uncle, the Fun Factory Patchy Paul II, also carried by EdenFantasys. I haven’t used Patchy Paul but he has been recommended to me.

Little Paul comes in the traditional Fun Factory packaging, a small cardboard box with a plastic clamshell. The original packaging is great for storage if you’ve got the space. If you don’t, I suggest a small lint-free bag or wrapping him in a lint-free cloth. Little Paul isn’t quite a lint magnet like some of my other silicone sex toys, but he does attract those little particles that happen to be floating around.

While the packaging is cute, space saving, and recyclable, it is not terribly discreet. As you can see from the included images, there is a little window in front showing off Little Paul’s adorable little nose, mouth, and eye. You can also see how the back opens and closes, with a very cool magnetic closure, to show you Little Paul’s butt! Ok, he doesn’t actually have a butt… My point is, you can clearly see Little Paul in his little house. So if the cleaning lady finds him lying around, you may be a tad embarrassed. Unless you’re awfully close to her, that is! Little Paul comes with a small instruction booklet in six different languages, a brochure showing all Fun Factory products (which will only serve to make you covet all the more), and a sample size packet of Fun Factory’s water-based lubricant, Toy Fluid.
