Fin [Gay on Tuesdays]

Fin vibrator

I purchased Fin through Unbound Box which is a sex toy subscription company; for a flat rate of $65 you receive assorted sex related things. Otherwise you have the option to purchase sex toys, lubes, and whatever else individually. I carried mixed feelings about Fin, because earlier I had received Eva, the handsfree, partnered sex toy specifically for vulvas. Eva is designed to rest in between the outer lips and deliver vibrations directly to the clitoris but that’s not how it worked out. Dame Products at this time just had Fin and Eva, but their origin story is what excited me and gave me the motivation to give Fin a clean slate. Dame, is a sex toy company where the internal structure of the toy is made from a 3D printer! Beyond that, the designers/creators are two young woman set out to design unique toys beginning on Indiegogo. The philosophy of Dame is to fill the woman’s demand and create more of discussion around pleasure.

With such an interesting history I was excited when my Fin arrived, Fin is designed to be a finger vibrator. Offering its user a strap to keep the vibrator in place in use or by removing the strap to stimulate with a free hand. The idea was this could be used internally or externally seeing as Fin is waterproof and 100% nonporeous and body safe. Additionally, Fin is rechargeable offering a quick initial charge. In terms of size this toy is toy tiny, with a length of 1.5 inches/3cm because the face of Fin is so unique I don’t have a circumference but instead a width of 2.1 inches/6cm. The control button of Fin rests on its back which presents a challenge in use, but the total vibration patterns of Fin are a simple low, medium, high. Now the vibrations are rather loud but they are not very strong initially; leaving Fin with a lot of bark and little bite. Fin also comes in two unique colors, this teal and a coral shade.

Use

What I have learned about Fin is this is not a toy for a quick orgasm, or for someone who likes a lot of power. For me to achieve an orgasm with this toy I need to start out very slow, then just make myself so sensitive the slightest touch sends me over the edge. My first impression when I began to play was very underwhelming. The the lowest vibration is a slight hum, that even on my most sensitive tissue does nothing. When trying to explore different angles of the toy I feel I can never get it right. The shape of Fin is true to name, a round “head” with a “fin” above, I tried to use this fin to my advantage, placing my clit in the river of the toy. Yet somehow it seems like the vibration is more powerful on the face, so I turn the toy again this lackluster vibration. Fins vibrations are buzzy, which I prefer a deeper rumble for stimulation. When in use I feel I have to press Fin very hard to my body to really feel something.

I thought I could try the less popular stimulation for my body, internally. It was a struggle to get wet enough to push Fin in, with some water based lube I got it in. Still feels like nothing, more irritating than anything else. The shape made it very uncomfortable for me to really do anything internally, and the strap even cam off at one point. This gave me the idea of some legal play? It played out as bad as it sounds…

I tried again externally leaving my missionary position and tried in my other go to, “doggie” in hope the position could retrieve some of my lost motivation. I had a successful discovery using Fin in a flicking motion directly across my clit and with much time I reached an orgasm. Now, I do not like to give up on a toy so if at first I do not succeed I try again with someone else’s genitals. As I’ve said I am a glorious Tinder date, haha!

My hope was that maybe a penis that had never been introduced to these vibrations would be ever so sensitive, especially a rare bird with their foreskin still intact. I introduced Fin to the corona, or head of the penis, then up and down the shaft. However, even my partner was unimpressed, so I tried to go in for the kill, the perineum, under the balls. STILL NOTHING frustrated I gave up and later tried again with a new partner with the same result. So no luck and no love for Fin.

Sum it up

I would not waste my time with this, with hope Dame will improve and I have even sent them an email about my experience with both toys. Graciously, the appreciated my suggestions and criticism by offering me a beta testing position. I know they have made improvements to Eva, so I’m sure a Fin II is coming soon. You can find this toy at Bettys Toy Box for $74.95, but again I would not spend that kind of money on it. I got it on a major discount and if I had not I would be pretty annoyed. The vibrations are lack luster, the controls are not easy to work with, and overall Fin needs a lot of work. I would check out the Femme Fun Ultra Bullet or the Nü Sensuelle Remote Control Bullet if you’re looking for some small, versatile external play.
