Fun Factory Boss Dildo Review

The Boss dildo by Fun Factory1 is the most appropriately named sex toy that I’m aware of. This thing dominates my vagina—it wants to bring it into submission. Actually, “Fun Factory Overlord” might be more descriptive than “Fun Factory Boss.” And the Boss’ mastery over my genitals comes down to one very minor feature in the toy: the spike in the middle of the Boss’ coronal ridge.Fun Factory Boss side view

Add Some Whips and Chains…

The only accurate description of the Boss’ ridge is “pointy.” I must’ve used the word “protruding” in at least ten previous dildo reviews to describe how I like my ridges: sticking out and bent forward. The Boss takes this to a whole ‘nother level, though, as that V-shaped point connects with the long vertical ridge running down its shaft.Fun Factory Boss head closeup

I believe that internal (vaginal, at least) stimulation preferences can be divided into “broad” vs. “pinpoint” categories, just like clit-stimulating vibes often are. I like broad, slightly gentler G-spot stimulation: that’s why my favorite silicone dildos include:

In contrast, the Boss’ dominant nature is enhanced by the fairly firm silicone. It’s not the most firm out there,2 but it doesn’t bend. This design is better suited for for pinpoint-stimulation lovers, or for anyone who wants a lot of pressure.

I wish I could comfortably use the Boss’ ridge against my G-spot all the time, because I love the toy’s shape. But… too often I’m in the extra-sensitive camp, and Boss is like whoa.

But on days when thrusting the Boss in and out with wild abandon is too much, I found a different way to enjoy the Boss.

The Only Dildo I Ride Backwards

When I’m not looking to be punished, there’s only one way for me to get it on with the Boss: reverse cowgirl. I rarely opt to face a dildo so that its coronal ridge faces what I call “backwards”: toward my ass—because I’m all G-spot all the time.

But once I realized how intense the Boss’ ridge was, I flipped it 180 degrees and started thrusting the other way—and the Boss felt so much better. Now I could enjoy the firm silicone and the above-average shaft.

When life gives you lemons…you decide to photograph your dildo on top of them.

Propped up on top of a number of strategically placed pillows—or, better yet, on a toy mount like the Liberator Wing or Liberator BonBon—the Boss shines. In this position, I love the firmness of the shaft and the slight drag in the silicone. And the troublesome spike in the coronal ridge gives the (less-picky) back wall of my vag a lot of pleasure.

A Word about Fun Factory’s Silicone

So many reviews of the Fun Factory Boss describe the silicone as “draggy” or “grainy”—and it’s true, Boss’ silicone finish really tugs. For some people, this is irritating; for others, it just requires more lube. I hate glossy toys, I actually like the amount of drag in the Boss. It’s all down to personal preference.

As a silicone-sex-toy nerd, I was delighted to discover an explanation for this grainy quality, and for the white residue that sometimes appears on Fun Factory dildos straight out of the box. It seems that Fun Factory sands their dildos as the final step in production! This step is meant to remove any imperfections in the toys. The silicone is 100% medical-grade, so any residue is body-safe and can be washed away. As a result, my Boss has a slight amount of roughness around the coronal ridge.

And the Base…

Fun Factory dildo bases have a unique three-pronged shape, kinda like a clover. Fun Factory’s product description says, “A flat base makes the THE BOSS DILDO suitable for harness use and also adheres to smooth surfaces or walls.3 Though the interesting shape might be an advantage for harness play, I have to say that its suction is very hit-or-miss.

My Boss sticks OK to my granite countertops while I wiggle lightly, but it will come detached if I move it faster, even at the slowest speed I ride any dildo. If you want a dildo with a powerful suction cup, look elsewhere—like absolutely any other body-safe dildo in my Suction Cup GuideFun Factory Boss side view on feathers

Final Thoughts

The Fun Factory Boss’ pointy coronal ridge is forceful—often too much for my sensitive G-spot. Those who want their own G-spot or prostate to be subjected to intense stimulation may have a very different opinion. Reverse-cowgirl style is the only way I can comfortably enjoy this big, black Boss’ might—but as a fan of extra-realism in my dildos, it’s not an experience I go for frequently.

Boss is better suited for anyone who:

  • Enjoys intense, focused pressure
  • Wants firm stimulation
  • Usually holds their toy in place (rather than thrusting too fast)
  • Prefers abstract toys

And should be avoided by people who:

  • Dislike hard materials
  • Are averse to draggy toys/like glossy ones
  • Are extra sensitive to pinpoint pressure
  • Like realistic-looking and/or realistic-feeling dildos

    Firstly, thank you very much for your hard work ;D (Sorry, I couldn’t resist!) I only recently found your site, and it has been so, so helpful for navigating my newfound, deeper levels of self lovin’. I especially love your density and suction cup guides, they are awesome!

    More on the topic, I wish that I would’ve found your review on the Boss sooner – maybe then I wouldn’t have wasted ~$50 🙁 The only thing I like in this dildo is the texture and the curve, otherwise your description of “forceful” and “pointy” is spot on. I honestly feel like I’m being plowed by the thing, and not in the fun way; it just pretty much scrapes my poor vag really jarringly (even your reverse cowgirl trick didn’t feel much better). I even tried to smooth it with a condom and a ton of lube, but no dice. And not to even speak of how it doesn’t stick to anything for more than 2 seconds at best…

    After I’ve recovered, I think I’ll try out one of the dildo’s you mentioned at the top of your post, hopefully with a more pleasurable outcome.

    Thanks again!

      Ooh, I’m sorry to hear about your negative experience! I don’t think this is a bad toy at all, but some are much more sensitive to that “draggy” texture than others, and Fun Factory’s silicone will do it.

      I’d definitely recommend a dual-density silicone dildo instead for more comfort.
