The Cobra Libre II from Fun Factory is a penis vibrator, specifically for the head. It’s in a unique spot, as there are not many, if any other vibrators specifically for this purpose. It’s purpose built to be good at one thing, and one thing only, and I’m happy to say that it succeeds.
The Cobra Libre II looks fascinating. Somewhere between a Tron bike and an electric shaver, it looks alien. Not like one would imagine a sex toy, and especially not a vibrator. The cylinder at the end houses two VERY powerful motors, and arcs back into a roughly 3” deep pocket specifically designed to fit the head of the penis. I give it full marks appearance not because it looks fuckable, but precisely because it doesn’t. It’s a very innocuous looking toy, that if accidentally left out on a counter may not even warrant a passing glance. In terms of build, it feels heavy and durable, with the same nice tactile feedback of the Manta. Understandable, given they’re produced by the same company. It’s small and fits into the palm of your hand, which is great considering that for some male sex toys, you may as well be screwing your kitchen-aide mixer.
The Cobra is built for one specific function, and that is to basically rattle your molars until you get off. In doing so, it hits a couple snags in terms of effectiveness that thankfully don’t dampen the overall buzz. Firstly, the cup you fit into is a one size fits all variety. For me, I found it almost too tight, while others may not find it tight enough. It really needs a solid fit to properly transfer the vibrations to the right places, meaning that those on the smaller side may find this toy lacking. That being said, if you’re able to seat it correctly, man does it work. This toy is more of a passive ride, while the Manta is an active adventure. The Cobra lends itself to plugging into it, relaxing, and letting the ride take its course. It can be a bit unsettling if you’re used to more active stimulation at first, but you’ll quickly learn to love it.
The motors in the Cobra are strong, and I mean STRONG. If you have fillings, it might just rattle them out. Even the lowest setting was almost uncomfortable at first, so if you’re extra sensitive, this might not be the toy for you. The motors themselves provide a very strong vibration that doesn’t always travel completely into the cup, so if this rests on your stomach, you may find it ticklish or even uncomfortable, just be aware. I found it best used holding it in front of me rather than laying back. All in all, I’ve found this toy to be my personal favorite for lazy sessions and it does a fantastic job providing hands free orgasms.
The Cobra is just as easy to maintain, which is wonderful. To fully clean the toy, you just need to run the cup in the sink a few times with some soap, and you’re basically done. This makes this toy pretty ideal for late night sessions where you don’t want to spend hours cleaning up. It is also completely waterproof. The two points that leads me to give this a 4 rather than a 5 are the size of the cup, and the preparation. Since this toy is silicon and the cup is fairly tight, you’ll definitely need to be using lube. This can sometimes be a little messy, so it gets a half point off in my book. The other item is that since the cup is fairly small, there can sometimes be an issue with, erm... spillage? There’s not a whole lot of depth or places for things to go, so you need to have some cleanup ready. Those two elements though aren’t enough to dampen what I feel is a great toy, and it’s still incredibly easy to maintain.
Longevity with the Cobra is a tricky one. It doesn’t have a lot of different ways to use it, so you’re either going to be really happy with what you get, or not impressed, and there’s not a lot of options otherwise. How long you continue to use it will likely depend on how much you liked your experience. For me, that puts this at flat ‘average’ in terms of longevity. I will personally continue to use this quite frequently, but other may find it falls flat or grow bored of the patterns and stimulation style. Time will tell how you learn to love it.
The Cobra is my personal travel companion of choice. It looks so unsuspecting that honestly, TSA could take it out of my bag and wave it over their head, and I wouldn’t even blink. I doubt many people would even know what they were looking at in the first glance. It’s travel lockable and waterproof, and it’s small enough to be packed in just about any type of luggage. The motors on it are louder than the Manta, but still quiet enough to be unassuming, and I have no regrets taking this on trips with me, and for that it nets full marks.
Overall I’m very pleased by how the Cobra performs. It’s a pleasant change from the other toys on the market, and feels somehow more refined than fucking a silicon vagina in a can. It replaces that lingering regret of “why did I spend money on this” with an excited feeling of “How long before I can use this again?”. It’s powerful, sleek, and good at what it’s made for. While it may not be the most guaranteed fireworks starter, if it works for you, you won’t be able to put it down.
