Lelo Ora Review

20140510_001917
Lelo Ora

When Lelo released the Lelo Ora, an oral sex toy simulator. I have to admit, when I first heard about the Lelo Ora I wasn’t particularly excited. As a sex toy blogger, I’ve seen oral sex toy simulators come and go, and usually they’re always going because they do not achieve anything near to what we expect from oral sex. However, my cynicism was met with curiosity when I saw the design of the Ora. I was intrigued and my curiosity was piqued. There seemed to be somewhat of a battle going on in my head with thoughts spinning around like ‘Well, I’ve tried oral sex simulators and, frankly, they suck’

‘But what if? What if Lelo have managed to succeed where many others have failed?’

‘Ooo, the design! It looks so pretty and interesting, oral sex and vibrations’ I mean oral sex and vibrations, what could possibly go wrong?

Consider me curious, and in the line of the many others out there who wanted to try it and find out what this toy had to offer.

Lelo very kindly sent me out a Lelo Ora to test and review for them and, oh, was I excited! This would be it! I’d finally be able to see if the previously unachievable has actually been achieved. How I prayed it had been.

What’s in the box

20140510_001700
So stylish!

As with all Lelo products you can pretty much tell they’re a luxury brand from the packaging alone and the Lelo Ora is no different to this. The box itself has a cardboard sleeve showing a picture of the Ora and a description of it. When removing the sleeve you’re greeted by a lovely black box with Lelo written on it, making it the perfect storage place to keep your Ora.

Inside the open top box you’re greeted by your item and it does look gorgeous, it’s a rounded shape with a flat bottom. As its part of the Insignia range it has the silver middle as the handle, which is coated in body safe silky smooth silicone.Also inside the box is your wall charger, warranty card, instruction booklet and a storage bag to keep your item safe if you don’t want to keep it in the box.

Preserving your Ora

As the item is fully submersible in water it makes it quite easy to clean, you can just pop it in some warm soapy water and rinse off. I’d also recommend using a soft tooth brush to clean where the silicone meets the handle to ensure nothing is caught or lurking between the gaps there. Spray with sex toy cleaner, rinse off and leave to dry.

As it’s partly made with silicone, I would recommend using a high quality water based lubricant as you could potentially damage your toy using other lubricants.

What the buttons do and the speeds

It has 10 patterns which mixes both rotations and vibrations. There is, however, really only two rotation speeds: full circle, which is called ‘Seductive Swirls’, and the half circle rotation, which is called ‘Fast Flicks’.

There are three buttons above the handle: +, () and –

To switch on press +. To increase the vibration speed hold in +

Pressing () will cycle between the vibration modes.

Pressing – will decrease the vibration strength and you hold in the – to switch it off.

Pressing + and – for 5 seconds together will lock your device then you hold them back in to unlock.

There is an intense vibration setting which increases the vibration speed by 30% to switch this on press and hold () for three seconds. Honestly though I can’t really tell the difference between the highest normal vibration and the intense vibrations.

My Opinion

The Ora came and it looked beautiful. The design looked luxurious, like all of the items from Lelo. It was beautifully packaged in the same fashion we’ve grown to love from Lelo items. And then I tried it. Several thoughts starting spinning around my head throughout its use like, ‘ARGH! Why won’t the bead go over my clit instead of circling it like it’s having some form of ritual dance?’ And it actually felt like that. It went around and around and around. I could feel it but I couldn’t feel it where I wanted the sensation. So I messed with the settings. Surely it’ll go somewhere near my clit. It just had to.

The vibrations started…. Once the vibrations started I could no longer feel the bead getting ready for its ritual sacrifice. I had to concentrate to feel the sensations of the bead, to somehow make my lady parts forget about the sensation of the vibrations and locate this bead.

Now I don’t know about anyone else, but I really don’t want to have to concentrate to feel something down there. There are times in my life when I just don’t want to have to think about anything and masturbating is pretty much one of these occasions.

The half setting felt OK. I mean, it wasn’t mind blowing, although it does have the potential to be. I could however actually feel it on my clit, after some acrobatics on my side — one leg in the air and another up the wall. You know, trying to position my body so the ball actually went over my clit, and with the half setting it did! It felt alright, the sensation itself was nice. I wanted it faster but, no, I couldn’t have it faster. I could have faster vibrations but not faster ‘tongue’ speed?! Are you kidding me? I thought its main purpose was oral sex simulation, not to be a vibrator.

There is something utterly annoying about an oral sex toy when the oral part won’t go any faster! It was then that I became completely frustrated with it. I probably would have been able to orgasm from it if it had gone faster.

And then there’s the noise. It’s not overly loud but it is irritating. It’s like a whooshing sound. It reminds me of an old washing machine right as you turn it on and the water is slowly whooshing around the machine. It’s not as loud as that, obviously, but it’s just as annoying. It’s another thing you have to try and will yourself not to think about so you can go on about your business.

All in all, I’m actually really disappointed. I wanted to like the Ora, it ticked the boxes of something that I would like. It has the ability to be something great if a few modifications are made to it like:

  • Making the Oral part have different speeds would definitely help
  • Making the bead actually go over the clit without us having to be a contortionists
  • I’d really like to see the bead action go up and down
  • Somehow making the motor less whooshey (I’m not even sure whooshey is a word – but you get the jist)
  • Making the bead slightly more prominent

If Lelo do make an Ora 2 like they did with the Mia and added some of these improvements I do believe it could be fantastic.

I do, however, really like the design. Maybe keeping that would be good but also removing the silver from the middle as it gets seriously slippery when used with lube.

Other than that, I have to say, when the bead did go over my clit it did actually resemble oral sex — more so than any other oral sex simulator I’ve tried — but it’s currently not really worth the price tag.

I was sent the Lelo Ora by Lelo to test and provide an honest review.

Lelo Lily 2 Review

A couple of months ago, I was contacted by LELO and asked to review their new bullet the LELO Lily 2.

First thoughts on the Lily 2

This was an improved version of the Lily – which is great. I’d heard some good things about its predecessor, so I was looking forward to giving it a try. That is, until I saw that it came infused with a smell. Yes, you read that right. My newly acquired sex toy has a scent infused within it. The smell that radiates from my vibrator is Lavender & Honey, although, if you prefer, you could also get the Rose & Wisteria and Bordeaux & Chocolate scents. Lovely.

I have no idea why my sex toy now needs to be scented. In all honesty, to me, it’s a ludicrous idea. But, such is life, and I now have a lavender and honey scented sex toy.

The packaging

As usual I was impressed with the packaging. I’ve yet to be disappointed by LELOs packaging, and I was even more impressed with the packaging for the LELO Lily 2. I really liked the little window in the box, it managed to make the toy look even more stylish and luxurious. I know, I know – the packaging isn’t everything, it’s the toy that matters. However, personally, I really like boxes. I like unwrapping pretty things. It’s just the way I am. Packaging is always going to be my first impression of the toy, and that matters. Inside the box, you’ll find the LELO Lily 2, a USB charging device and a small satin pouch. The pouch is big enough to store both the cable in and the vibrator, if you don’t want to keep the box.

Opening it up

When I opened the box, I was hit by a rather strong smell of lavender. It was actually quite over-powering. Initially, I was sad about this. I actually hate the smell of lavender. It’s a smell that I tend to associate with my grandmother and her friends, as they always wore a lavender-based perfume. The scent, itself, is said to be associated with romance. I’m not sure how. I find it rather off putting, and it’s certainly not a scent I would have willingly chosen for my sex toy. Feeling rather deflated, I decided to put the toy on the window-ledge near an open window, in the hopes that it would air out.

Trying to get rid of the smell

After leaving the toy by the window for several hours (the smell wasn’t bad enough to warrant leaving it there for several hours, I just forgot about it), I was pleased to discover that my sex toy was no longer an assault on my nose. In fact, I could barely smell the lavender anymore. To be able to smell it, I had to practically put the vibe right up against my nose. Which again left me wondering as to why infuse a smell in a sex toy anyway? Especially if it’s not going to last very long when left out.

Whenever I leave the toy out of the included storage bag, I’m not able to smell the lavender anymore. It’s not just me, I practically shoved this toy under my BFs nose to ask if he could smell anything. Apart from being mildly concerned that I was attempting to stick one of my sex toys up his right nostril, nothing else really struck him. He couldn’t smell anything. It’s only when I put the toy back inside the packaging that I’m able to get a subtle smell of lavender.

So, thankfully, the smell (after my initial experience) isn’t really over-bearing at all. It’s quite subtle and it in no way affects my experience with the toy.

Some specs

The Lily 2 is a lot smaller than I originally anticipated. With a length of 3.6 inches, a width of 1.5 inches and a circumference of 4 inches. Its almost pebble-like shape makes it really easy to hold and use. While the toy itself is incredibly smooth and manages to feel somewhat silky, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it was made from silicone. However, it’s actually made from ABS plastic, much like the Mia.

The Lilly 2 hosts a variation of vibrations, 8 in total. However, as usual I’ve never really been interested in patterned vibrations, they rarely do anything for me. Thankfully the LELO Lily 2 has 10 different speed settings to keep me interested.

The controls are easy to navigate, although they’re a little stiff, and the vibrations are surprisingly powerful. The vibrations are mostly buzzy with a slight rumble undertone. I found, because of this, I wasn’t able to use this vibrator for an extended amount of time as it just made my hand go numb.

The tip of the vibrator is angled, however, it wasn’t angled enough for me to reach clitoral orgasm using this alone – which was more than a little disappointing. Pairing the Lily 2 with a dildo didn’t really help me much either as, although this seemed to heighten the vibrations on my clitoris, it wasn’t nearly as effective as my experiences with the Tango (my usual go-to clitoral vibe), or even the LELO Mia 2. I put this down to the shape of the vibrator (though the vibrations on the Tango are far superior).

How it performed

The LELO Lily 2 is a well-made, rechargeable vibrator with strong vibrations, however, for me it does have its problems. The shape, however comfortable, wasn’t able to give me the pin-point vibrations that I need. The vibrations, although powerful, aren’t rumbly enough for me, either (I really hope LELO make more rumbling vibrators, as I’m a huge fan of the Large LELO Smart Wand). And, honestly, the infused smell is just something I can’t get behind. I don’t see the point in it, in the slightest, and I feel like you could save money purchasing the LELO NEA 2 instead: it doesn’t come with the smell and it’s over £20 less!

Doxy Diecast

Editor’s rating

10.0

A post from a friend of mine, who will be posting on here now and again with reviews of the toys that he uses, or toys that may occasionally be sent out to him for honest reviews. This is a review of Doxy Diecast. 

Enjoy. 

Lo and behold I was given the Mercedes Benz of the sex toy world, winner of the 2016 Best New Female Product it is of course the Doxy Die Cast. I think other than my degree this is the best thing I have ever received in the mail, no joke. Some part of me feels I am not worthy to review the Queen of Orgasms, but if you bear with me, I shall humbly attempt to try.

Specifications

Boring stuff first – here are the specifications:

  • Total Length: 34cm
  • Handle Length: ~24cm
  • Handle Circumference: ~15cm
  • Head Length: ~8cm
  • Head Circumference: ~20cm
  • Power Source: Mains Wired
  • Wire length: Over 9ft!

The handle is made of a sexy aluminium/titanium alloy which gives the wand a heavy sturdy feel. The head is made of finest medical grade silicone. When I said this was the best sex toy, I was not joking. Taken from the Doxy Website: “The body is made from a polished aluminium/titanium alloy manufactured at our Cornwall foundry using a high pressure (550 tons) injection, cold chamber die casting machine.” Now I don’t know what 550 tons of pressure means in terms of casting aluminium but I do now that Doxy have not cut any corners – this is a premium, luxury sex toy. Which leads me nicely on to…

First Impressions

The Doxy arrived in a plain white cardboard box. Inside was a light grey hard rectangular case with a diamond pattern fabric. A large zip ran down the length of the case and I opened the case to reveal the Doxy nestled snug in foam. Removing the Doxy from the case felt like unsheathing a mythical sword, and I was eager to use it. The first thing I noticed was the weight. The rough weight of the Doxy Die Cast is 830 grams of which a large amount is the handle. From what I have read the head is the same size as other Doxy’s which allows for cross compatibility of attachments.

Use

I asked my partner if she would be interested in reviewing the Doxy with me. She showed reasonable interest… by which I mean she nearly ripped my arm off when I opened the case. To start with, we lubed up the head of the Doxy with water based lubricant, plugged it in then turned it on. The Doxy has 3 buttons around halfway down the handle. They are relatively large and they light up when plugged in which makes it very easy to control.

There are 8 alternating speed settings ranging from “ooh, lovely” to “oh shit” and boy did we try them all. My partner preferred the lower settings in use as that’s just how she rolls as even the low settings with the doxy are still high compared to other toys.

The Doxy’s ergonomic handle was also very handy when using the Doxy during sex. I recommend doggy style as the position leaves the clit free to place the wand on. Fun fact: I was able to feel the vibrations whilst in my partner quite clearly and it was amazing. Oh and she loved it too.

We’ve had other wands before, Lovehoney’s wired wand did the job for a while but the head is quite a rigid material and the control can be knocked easily. I have also reviewed the Tantus Rumble which just didn’t have the power and the head was a little wide. So after trying both of those the Doxy just blew them out of the water. I honestly would not go back to another wand after using the Doxy.

My partner very much enjoyed the Doxy even as a masturbator, it allowed her to climax quickly on high settings or build up to a toe-curling, leg-shaking orgasm on lower settings. The bondage applications of the Doxy are great, particularly when my partner was tied and exposed, unable to move and I could play with the sensitivity. One easily forgotten but vital feature is the long-ass wire which is so long it negates the problem wired wands have, which is that they sometimes can’t reach certain zones of the bed, or must be angled a certain way to do so.

 

A true feat of engineering and style.

Massage

Okay before getting the Doxy I had been on the Doxy website and there was mention that the Doxy can be used as a massager. For me it has been a running joke since I watched Sex and the City that a neck massager never gets used on the neck but damned if I wasn’t going to try. I had pulled my back out at the gym and thought “why not” and let my partner massage my back with the Doxy. It’s great. The vibrations are firm and deep and I would definitely recommend the Doxy as a straight up non-erotic massager for after you’ve came like a hurricane with it. Try it on your aching thighs, shoulders, anywhere.

<3

Cleaning

Cleaning is very easy with the Doxy. There isn’t many places for the lube to accrue so I simply wiped the head and handle down with an intimate wipe before and after use and I have had no problems. The aluminium/titanium alloy has not tarnished nor rusted nor do I expect to.

Summary

I think you know what I am going to say. The Doxy is fantastic. I love it. I really do. The Doxy rules its field and I would scoff at any challenger claiming to dethrone it. The price tag for the Die Cast is £159.68 which yes is a lot of money but you are paying for the best. If you could buy just one sex toy and you have £160 lying around then get the Doxy. You won’t regret it.

For future purchases you should know that the Doxy Diecast is getting a slight change of appearance, the handle will no longer be buffed to a shine, and will in fact have a matte finish, as seen in the picture below. 

 

This item was sent to me in exchange for an honest review from MEO. All opinions are my own. Affiliate links have not been used in this post. 

Doxy

It’s a well known fact that I’m a power queen, I like my vibrations and I like them powerful, deep and rumbly. I need them like that.

So as a power queen it can be somewhat expected that I’d want and need a wand. I mean, almost everyone has a wand now. I had wands, several in fact – they’d all been used a handful of times and then just forgot about, I couldn’t be bothered with them. I liked them don’t get me wrong, I just much preferred the pin point vibrations that the Tango offered me.

IMG_0572

Although I’d abandoned several wands to the back of the drawer, I felt that pull. You know the one that you get when you see a particular toy, the need, the obsession. And then it’s everywhere. Everywhere you look you see people talking about it, you see its picture floating about; and your need intensifies (This can’t be just me right?!) and that’s what it was like with the Doxy, I needed it. I don’t know why I needed it, but something inside me told me that I did. So eventually I thought Fuck it, and purchased it.

The hype surrounding it had me elevated, almost everyone I conversed with told me how amazing it was. Cara Sutra said that she wished she could experience her first 30 second orgasm with the Doxy again. A 30 second orgasm? CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. So when it arrived, I was overjoyed. I practically dragged the box from my poor postman, locked my door and ran up the stairs. Best thing about the Doxy?! The Super Long Power Chord. Fuck messing around with charging, I can just plug this shit straight in and get going. OK, so Cara said 30 second orgasm, I was ready for this; so in typical behaviour I called the boyfriend and advised him about this 30 second orgasm. The conversation went pretty much like this:

Me “Morning babe! MY DOXY IS HERE”

Him “Grumble”

Me “So now I need you to time me”

Him “Grumble…. Huh?”

Me “Cara said I can have a 30 second orgasm with this thing, so you’re going to time me whilst I fuck myself and let me know how long it takes. READY?”

After that he questioned why he doesn’t have a normal girlfriend, why shit like this always happens, Why I have to collect vibrators instead of purses but yes; he was ready. And so was I, I plugged this baby in, assumed the position; and in a true childish manner yelled ‘READY STEADY GO’ to my poor boyfriend who always manages to get dragged in to this shit.

What I noticed from first turning this on, is that it doesn’t switch on at the lowest setting, so I turned it down slightly to let my body adjust, and progressively turned it up. I say progressed – what that means, is it pretty much went up in speed with every passing second until it got to the highest setting. It was also heavier and bigger than I imagined, not in an uncomfortable way. The weight itself is evenly distributed and the long handle made it perfect to manoeuvre.

It felt amazing, my other wands didn’t feel like this at all. I put this down to the PVC (Wish it was a better material, but hey ho) head, all the other wands I banished had plastic heads, they were too hard. This however was heavenly, and in less than 30 seconds; my toes were curling and I was hit with a rather intense orgasm. It was truly amazing. Try it yourself, I’m calling it the 30 second challenge.

I really do love my Doxy, now – the first time I used it, it was great. The second time I used it, it didn’t really do anything for me and I couldn’t understand how I could have such a mind blowing experience the first time, and not even close to one the second time. I put it down to readiness, I wasn’t fully ready for it, therefore my body wasn’t ready for what it had to offer. Anytime I use it now, I’m more than ready for it, and it delivers every single time.

Another thing that is amazing for me, is the massage aspect; It feels fantastic. I constantly suffer from lower back pain. I’m somewhat of a giant, with large breasts and my back suffers. This is perfect for it, I lay on my tummy; turn it on and hold it on my lower back, moving it around in circles. It feels fantastic and really soothes the ache there, and the constant ache I get between my shoulder blades from being hunched over a desk for too long.

The Doxy has become my person masseuse and bringer of orgasms, never before have I understood why so many people love a wand and feel the need to own one; but now, now I get it. Doxy I salute you, may you continue to bring orgasms and massages to all around.

Seriously give it a try, it may very well be one of the best decisions you make.

If you’d like to purchase the Doxy wand, you can do so from SexToysUK.

Lelo Noa review

 

I was lucky enough to be sent the lelo Noa Couples vibrator for review from Smoothvelvet.co.uk, it arrived really quickly and in discrete packaging, with lots of protection to stop the box or the toy from getting damaged.

The packaging for the Lelo Noa is pretty standard for lelo, lovely and clear with a nice picture of the toy on the box and some basic information about how the toy works. Inside the box the toy is beautifully presented in a moulded base, with a satin Lelo branded storage pouch included along with a USB charger, sample of Lelo lubricant, very basic instructions for use and the guarentee/warrenty for the vibrator which you get with all Lelo toys.

The instructions which you get with the vibrator are extremely basic, but they do include a link for you to be able to look up the full instructions online, this can be found here , I found that I needed to look the manual up online to get a better feel of the toy.

After standing there for a while the plug in one hand and the Noa in the other, thinking that I couldn’t see anywhere to stick it, I finally worked out that the top of the vibrator unscrews and the wire was attached to the inside of the head of the vibrator. It was only after that that I spotted that there are simple instructions included with the Noa to show you how to do this. The wire that comes with it only has a USB attachment with it, but I used the plug from my mobile phone to plug it into the mains, if you don’t have one you can plug it into you computer or get one from ebay relatively cheap. The Noa takes about 2hrs to charge fully and when the Noa is charging there is a light on the top of it which lights up pink. Once the Noa is fully charged the light will change to a white light to show that it is fully charged. If the light starts to flash rapidly during use, don’t worry it doesn’t mean you have broken it, just that it needs charging again.

The Lelo Noa is made out of extremely soft almost velvet touch smooth silicone, which is 100% body safe with a gold colloured plastic band which has the Lelo brand name stamped into it around the join where the top unscrews from the tail. The screw part on the inside of the toy is solid white plastic with a hole in the middle for the wire to attach for the charger. The Lelo Noa is waterproof, I have received confirmation from lelo that this is the case upto 1 metre this means that cleaning your Noa should be super easy, I would use a good quality spray sex toy cleaner to make sure that your toy is sparkling and clean and ready for you to use.

The Noa is safe to use with waterbased lubricants but not silicone lubricants as it is made from silicone, I would advise using lubricant with this couples vibrator during sex to prevent the toy been dislodged and eventually coming out of the vagina altogether, we found that without lube the Noa can easily come out. The Noa is shaped to allow the penis to slide in and out without it been uncomfortable, always insert the Noa before sex to prevent any discomfort.

To turn the Noa on you have to press the power button on the top of the vibrator twice, each time you press it the light will flash it will then turn on with a constant vibration, the Noa doesn’t remember the last setting that it was on, it will always start with the constant vibration, but it does have other settings

1. constant vibration
2. pulse
3. fast pulse
4. rollercoaster
5.longer rollercoaster
6. low high pulse

The light on the Noa flashes slowly when it is turned on, and fast if the battery is running out. To turn off the Noa you need to hold the power button for 5 seconds which is slightly longer than most vibrators.

The Noa has single speed but multi patterned vibrations which I would describe as medium intensity, it is definitely not as strong in vibrations as the We-Vibe 3 which is a similar style vibrator but has a remote with it and dual motors, where this only has the one motor.

The Noa is compatible with the Sensemotion remote control, but you do not get one included with it. If you already have one with another Lelo product you can link it to it, if not you can buy them from Lelo for a reasonable price, I am not sure how well this product works with the remote as I do not have one to try with it.

The Noa is almost silent, it is a very quiet vibrator and will certainly not distract either of you from lovemaking.

Our experience of using the Noa was pretty good, we found it easy to position correctly, and to turn on and change the settings while it was in place, even without a remote control for it. We did find that it moved around quite a lot during sex though and even slipped out at one point, this seemed to happen less when we used more lube, so I think it was more to do with how we were using it than the toy itself. We both enjoyed the vibrations and even though this only has the one motor on the top of the vibrator which sit on the clitoris the vibrations traveled down the full body of the vibrator and could be felt by my partner aswell, he described this as a nice sensation.

Overall We liked the Lelo Noa, We loved the feel of the supersoft silicone and how flexible it is, the vibrations could be stronger and I think that it could be improved by having a couple more speeds rather than just the one. The vibrations transferred pretty well down the whole of the toy and we both enjoyed this, and the fact that it is almost silent is great. 

Lelo Nea Review

I was contacted by the people at playkinky and asked if I would review one of their products, I was sent the LELO NEA to review and it arrived in some super discrete packaging with lots and lots of protective packaging to stop it from getting damaged in the post.

Lelo Nea 2

As with all of the other LELO sex toys that I have reviewed it came packaged in some nice packaging, plain and well designed with LELO on the front and a picture of the toy and details of what it does on the back, not chance of anything smutty with LELO all of their toys come designed with quality in mind. Inside the nice white box is a black gift box with the vibrator, charger, storage pouch and instructions inside.

Before you use the Nea 2

Before you can start to play with your LELO NEA you need to charge it up, the charger is nice and easy to attach and when it is on charge the lights flash until it is fully charged when it stops flashing, I found that it took a couple of hours to be fully charged.

Lelo Nea Luxury Vibrator Comes in Black

The LELO NEA is one of the smaller LELO vibrators, it fits nicely in the palm of your hand and is made of ABS plastic which is body safe, shiny and smooth. It has 2 buttons on the front one increases the strength of the vibrations and one decreases the strength of them, there are also patterns if you prefer just hold down the up button once its on full and it will start to pulse, keep pressing it to scroll through the various patterns. To go back to the constant vibrations press the down button until it is off and then turn it back on again.

About the product

  • Body Safe FDA-Approved Material Phthalate-Free ABS Plastic
  • Five Stimulation Modes From Soft Flutter to Intense Pulsation
  • Rechargeable LI-ION Battery 7 Hours of Pleasure From a 2-Hour Charge
  • Deceptively Powerful Engineered for a More Satisfying Vibe Discreet Performance Fully Lockable with Near-Silent Vibrations

The NEA is well designed with a pretty feminine pattern on the back (much like the one on my mobile phone case) and a shape that means that when you hold it in your hand the pleasure point where the vibrations are concentrated are positioned to ensure that they are easy to get in the right place.

Does it have enough power?

I often find that smaller vibrators are not powerful enough for me but it was not the case with this vibrator at all, this vibrator has some strong deep vibrations which pulse around the clit wonderfully and push you right over the edge without any effort at all, and the smallness of the vibrator mean that during sex you can use it without it getting in the way.  I generally prefer the softness is silicone over the hard ABS plastic materials as in the past I have found that vibrators made from ABS have sharp buzzy vibrations which feel hot and not in a good way, but some how LELO have managed to keep these deep and throbby and just how I like them to be.

The material

The NEA is made from ABS plastic and as such should be fine to use with any kind of lubricant, that said in the User manual it states that you should only use it with waterbased lubricants, I personally only use waterbased anyway, I have far to many silicone toys to mess about with other kinds of lubes (unless I have been asked to review them) and have always found them to be more than adequate. The NEA should be cleaned with a good quality sex toy cleaner and warm water, never submerge the charger connector in water as it will damage the vibrator.

The noise levels from this little thing aren’t to bad it sounds a bit like a quiet electric razor, definitely quiet enough for me not to worry to much about it disturbing anyone or been heard in the next room.

Overall I can’t think of anything bad to say about this little bit of LELO just like all of the other LELO vibrators that I have reviewed it feels like a good quality sex toy, it is easy to charge, easy to use and super powerful, the vibrations are lovely and deep and penetrate through the clit in the way that any good sex toy should. The design is lovely and the storage pouch and size of it means that you can pop it in your bag and take it out with you anywhere. This is one of those toys that might be on the bedside cabinet for some time after testing/reviewing. 

 

Lelo Smart Wand

The Medium Lelo Smart Wand with SenseTouch Technology was sent to me for review from the lovely people over at Bondara.co.uk it arrived superfast and in some lovely discrete packaging, packaged to ensure that it didn’t come to any harm in the post, and delivered by my postie who must be getting sick of bringing me parcels by now.

Lelo Smart Wand

The packaging

The outer packaging for the wand is nicely designed, the Lelo Smart Wand is designed primarily for use as a massager and the box is full of detail on how this can be used for massage, and details of all of the features of the Lelo Smart Wand. It even includes a picture of a lady in a towel holding the wand in various positions all of which make me think that the wand looks like some sort of retro phone.

Inside the outer packaging the Lelo Smart Wand is contained in a white gift/presentation box, inside which you get the wand, the manual to teach you how it works, although I have to say it is pretty intuitive, a lovely satin storage pouch which is big enough to store both the wand and the charger, the charger and of course the Lelo Insignia Brooch which comes with all Lelo toys in the Insignia range.

The material

The Lelo Smart wand is made primarily out of supersoft almost velvet touch body safe silicone, the head is soft and flexible and when it is turned on the vibrations stay in the head and do not travel right down the handle. The handle has some Gold coloured plastic with the word Lelo embossed into it, it looks classy not cheap.

The Lelo Smart wand has a number of settings which are operated using the 3 buttons on the handle, the plus button increases the speed and turns it on, the minus button slows down the speed and turns it off and the middle button changes the function and turns the SenseTouch Tecnology on and off, the settings that it has are

  • Constant
  • Pulse
  • Fast Pulse
  • Rollercoaster
  • Graduated Fast/Slow
  • Various speeds seems kinda random but probably isn’t
There is also a travel lock on the Lelo Smart Wand which means that you can pop it in your travel bag without any fear of it turning on while you are on a bus or a plane and embarrassing you. Just hold down the plus and minus button for a few seconds to activate and deactivate it, a great little feature that not many toys have.
Lelo Smart Wand Medium Comes in Black
The Lelo Smart wand is shaped with a lovely curve which means that it is very easy to get to those hard to reach areas such as your back or shoulders if you are using this as a massager on yourself, if you bought this with masturbation in mind, it is very well shaped to be able to use it for that to, the head of the wand is a nice size and the vibrations transfer through it very well, the vibrations do no feel hard and buzzy, and are not so fast that they start to feel slightly burny, instead they seem deep and rumbly and very gentle, just the sort of thing that you want for both massage and masturbation.

Is the Lelo Smart Wand waterproot?

The Lelo Smart wand is completely waterproof and can be submerged, I found it hard to believe at first as the power inlet on the bottom of the wand is open but on reading the instruction manual and the box it states that it is a waterproof open connector, in fact in the manual it encourages you to use it in the bath or shower as the water aides relaxation and can help give a more satisfying massage. Been waterproof is also a great feature not only for play/use in the bath/shower but for cleaning, you can wash this up with warm soapy water and not worry about getting any parts of it wet, I would still recommend that you give it a clean with some antibacterial sex toy cleaner to ensure that it is sparkling clean before and after each use, if you have been using it for masturbation and not just massage.

Key Features

  • The SMART WAND Medium offers you the high powered pleasure of a wand-style massager in a compact, travel-friendly design.
  • Unique SenseTouch technology lets vibrations build on contact with your body and increase in intensity naturally.
  • 8 pre-set vibration patterns with variable strength that promise intense relief from sore muscles.
  • Rechargeable with travel lock and near-silent vibrations for pleasure you can experience anywhere, any time.
Like all Lelo toys this wand has a real look and feel of luxury about it, and also like all Lelo toys it is super quiet even when it is on full power, which is really saying something with this wand as this is the most powerful of all of the Lelo’s which I have tried and it is still super quiet. It is also rechargeable and charges in just 2 hours, the battery life will depend on the power level which you use but it seems pretty good, and with a fast 2 hour charge time it beats some of the other rechargeables hands down just on the speed of charge.
As the wand is made from silicone it should be noted that if you choose to use it for masturbation you should avoid any silicone lubricant as silicones do not mix well with each other, you could very easily end up with a melted or misshapen toy, also I would advise that you are careful when you store it and that you use the satin storage pouch or the box that it came it, to ensure that it isn’t inadvertently mixed with any other silicone toy as this would have the same possible effect.
SenseTouch?
So that is all of the general bits covered, I suppose I should tell you about the SenseTouch technology now and how it works. I was a little dubious at first, I kinda knew that it would work as its Lelo but I wasn’t sure how well or if I would like it, I have to say that honestly I prefer to power the toy up myself and have that control over the speed etc that the SenseTouch still gives you but in a slightly different way, call me old fashioned if you wish.
To activate it you hold the centre button down for 3-5 seconds the lights which surround the button then flash to say that it has been activated, to deactivate it you do the same thing.
Then choose your setting, be it constant, pulse, rollercoaster or kinda weird random, which ever one you prefer by flicking through the setting as you would normally using the centre button, I didn’t realise this the first time I used it, should have read the instruction manual a but more thoroughly but I just jumped straight in, and wondered why it was pulsing all the time (I had had it on pulse before I turned it on and it had stayed on that setting), so I should probably note that when you turn it onto SenseMotion it will remain on the last setting that it was on.
The SenseTouch will automatically be set to reach the maximum strength, but if it is not in contact with your body it will just vibrate gently to the chosen pattern until you press it against your body, to gauge whether or not this is to much for you, I would recommend holding it in your hand and feeling the maximum power before pressing it against where-ever you want to massage. If it is to much on full just use the minus button to reduce the final power level to one which you prefer.
When we used it for the first time we had it on pulse and it seemed to increase in power with each pulse, the second time we just had it on constant, I personally feel that it gets up to its maximum speed a little to quickly, especially as once it is there is stays there it doesn’t drop down again, unless you pull it away from the body, once you pull it away from the body it goes back to a low gentle rumble again, and will build up to the maximum speed again once it is back in contact with the body.

Overall, I think that this is a pretty nifty little massager, this is only the medium and not the large, but is packs a whole load of power, its supersoft and extremely easy to use. Its great for its primary use which is massage but also for masturbation should you choose to use it that way. Its very easy to clean and comes with its own storage case, the charge time is fast especially for a toy of its power level, its travel friendly and quiet to. I can’t think of anything negative to say about it, all I need now is the large one so that I can compare the two 

Lelo Lyla 2 Review

I was very lucky to be sent the Lelo Lyla 2 for review by Bondara, as always the package arrived in some super discrete packaging and quickly to.

Lelo Lyla 2 in packaging
Lelo Lyla 2 in packaging

The Lelo Lyla 2 comes in some very stylish and tastefully designed packaging with some lovely clear pictures of the toy and some information about how it works and what it does, inside this box is a black Lelo gift box with the vibrator, remote, charger, brooch, instructions and sample of Lelo personal lubricant inside, the vibe and remote is in some moulded packaging to keep it safe and to allow you to store it safely when it isn’t been used.

Before you use the Lyla 2

Before you use the Lyla for the first time you need to charge up the vibrating bullet and insert batteries into the remote control, to charge the Lyla you need to unscrew the shiny and plug in the charger into the base of the bullet, when it is charging the light flashes and when it is done the light stays one, the initial charge will take approximately 2 hours, and after that it should be shorter depending on how long its been used for, a 2hr charge should give you approximately 2hours worth of use although this will vary depending on the setting which you use it on.

To insert the batteries into the sensemotion control you need to unscrew the shiny cap, if you are having problems lelo has included a handy key to help, but by using flat hands and a little pressure it is pretty easy to unscrew and to fasten again, it takes 2aaa batteries which lelo have very kindly included with the Lyla 2.

Once you have charged your bullet and you have put the batteries into the remote you are ready to go, firstly you need to turn on the bullet, a single press on the top of the bullet turns it on and the light flashes to show that it is turned on, you can use this without the remote control by pressing the button repeatedly to scroll through the 6 pre-programmed modes:-

  1. constant
  2. pulse
  3. fast pulse
  4. rollercoaster low-high
  5. rollercoaster low-high-low
  6. rollercoaster high-low-high-low-low-med (kinda random)

But when you use it in conjuction with the remote control you can change the speed of the vibrations by using the + and – buttons.

Lelo Lyla 2 Premium Remote-Controlled Bullet Vibrator Comes in Deep Rose

The Lelo Lyla can be used as a bullet vibe on its own against the clit and the vibrations are nice and strong for this and they are also pretty quiet to but it can also be worn internally like an egg vibrator and controlled remotely by you or your partner.

How does the remote control work

The sensemotion remote control is fantastic, it is the best remote that I have handled with a remote controlled toy, ever. Unlike all of the other remote controls that I have tried it also vibrates, not quite as strongly as the vibrator but it mirrors what the vibrator is doing, meaning that whoever is attached the vibrator can control exactly what the vibrator is doing at all times by the feel of the remote. I have tried so many remote control vibes before which have ended up with the hubby asking me if it is on or off and what it is doing, which takes all of the fun out of having a remote control vibe. You can use the remote as a standard remote control using the + and – to control the speed and the middle button to scroll through the settings.

Or you can use the sensemotion functions which we found to be much more fun, there are 2 separate sensemotion modes, when you turn on the remote it is already in the first mode, this mode allows you to change the speed of the vibrations by rotating the remote control in your hand.

Key Features

  • 3X the wireless range and signal strength of the original design for enhanced functionality (up to 118 feet depending on the environment)
  • 50% more power and additional control options than original SenseMotion Series, can control with or without the wireless remote using a multi-functional button on the massager itself
  • Wireless controller adjusts vibration speed and intensity through the user’s choice of 6 pre-set patterns or with a flick of the wrist in the 2 SenseMotion modes; controller mirrors same vibration patterns as the massager
  • Fully waterproof and rechargeable
  • FDA-approved body-safe silicone

The second sensemotion setting is activated by pressing the centre program button, this allows you to speed up the vibrations by moving the remote up and down, the faster you move it the faster it vibrates.

Performance

When we used the remote control with the vibrator we found that the range was brilliant, my husband went into the Kitchen and closed the door and he could still control the vibrator that was inside me in the living room, plus he could feel through the remote what it was that he was doing to me, this is really quite impressive as other remote control toys we have had haven’t even come close to this. When the vibe is been worn internally it is incredibly discrete and quiet, there is a retrieval loop which should be worn on the outside of the body to help remove the vibrator when it is finished with. The remote does made some noise though when it vibrates, and wouldn’t be quite as discrete if you were out in public with it, it is quite large and it buzzes when it buzzes.

Both the remote and the vibrator are made from matching silicone, as with all Lelo toys the silicone is lovely and soft and perfectly smooth without any seams or edges which could be uncomfortable when used against your more sensitive areas, the remote is incredibly tactile and sits in the palm of the hand perfectly, my husband actually said that he found it impossible to hold it without wanting to turn it over in his hands, and everytime he did the vibrator buzzed away in response to this.

As with all silicone toys these should not be used with silicone lubricants and should be stored away from other silicone toys, silicone reacts with silicone and if you use the wrong lube or let it sit with some other silicone toys it can become damages and misshapen.

Cleaning

The Lyla 2 is waterproof which is great if you like to use your toys in the bath or the shower, it is also good news for cleaning it, it means that you can wash it in some warm soapy water with some antibacterial soap, although I prefer to use some good quality sex toy cleaner with all of my toys.

Wrapping up

Overall we were both very impressed with the Lelo Lyla 2 and its remote, the range is good, the vibrations are good, it is comfortable to wear internally due to its quality materials and great shape, it is pretty versatile as it can be used as a bullet or a remote controlled egg. I would highly recommend this remote vibe to anyone who is looking for something that actually works as so many remote control vibes on the market don’t work very well.

Review of Lelo Insignia Alia

I have been lusting after this toy for months and months, in fact I got my hands on one when I went to Amsterdam earlier this year with a friend, but at the time I didn’t have the cash to lay out and in Europe the chargers have the wrong plug on them so I left it.

Then this month I finally bought myself one from sextoys.co.uk, and I have not been disappointed, When it arrived I opened the super discrete packaging to find a very well designed box inside.

The box has a lovely clear picture of the toy on it with the details of the features of the vibrator written on it, and some Lelo branding, as with all Lelo toys the box is very tasteful and classy, clearly they have thought about this alot when they have been putting the toy and box together.

On opening the outside box, the toy itself is displayed beautifully in a gift box, with a gold coloured brooch included with the toy. Just an added little bonus from Lelo, and still discrete enough to be able to wear it out and for only those in the know to know what it was and where it had come from.

Included in the box is the charger (as I bought this in the UK it has a UK plug on it) a samply of Lelo personal lubricant, and instruction manual which looks rather thick and OTT but actually isn’t as it has lots of languages in the one book, a 1 year warranty and a 10 year guarantee, A good quality satin storage pouch and the vibrator and a little do/don’t card.

The first thing you need to do when you get your vibrator is charge it, and this is simple, you just push the adapted from the charger into the hole in the bottom of the vibe and plug it in, when it is charging the light flashes and when it has finished charging the light stays on. Similarly when the battery is running out of power the lights on the control panel flash when you turn it on to let you know, so you will never be surprised mid play when your toy turns itself off due to lack of power.

The vibrator is made out of super soft yet firm and smooth silicone, with a plastic gold insert in the middle, the silicone feels really nice and warm to the touch, and tactile really tactile this is one of those toys that once I picked it up I just wanted to hold and roll around in my hands.
It is also waterproof, meaning that you can take this toy anywhere and play with it, the instruction book states that it is waterproof upto one metre even without the silicone cover, but not to charge it in water (like doh),, been waterproof also makes it super easy to clean, and there is no new toy smell, even close up there is no smell to this toy.
The control panel is on the side of the toy, it is very simple to operate, a simply + and – for faster and slower and a 8 button in the middle to flick between the various settings which are, constant vibrations, Slow Pulse, Fast Pulse and then 3 different patterned settings.
As you can adjust the strength of the vibrations aswell as the pattern separately there is no need for a low, med and high setting. To turn the toy back off again you just hold the minus button until the vibrations stop.
The vibrations are concentrated in the pointed end of the vibrator and they are lovely and deep and almost silent even when on the highest setting. The hole in the middle of the toy makes this toy easy to control and direct the vibrations to exactly where you want them, with your fingers through the hole and then your thumb on the control switches, you know you are always going to be in control of this toy.
I found the vibrations on this toy to be of the perfect strength, unlike a lot of vibrators that I have I didn’t get bored and reach for something more powerful after feeling like I was nearly there for an eternity, this toy really does pack a punch.
As this is a silicone toy you need to avoid storing it with other silicone toys as it may react with them and this could cause your toy to become misshapen and melted, this isn’t a problem as this comes with its very own storage pouch with a Lelo tag on it. The pouch doesn’t feel thin and cheap like some of the pouches that I have but it feels thick and good quality, like it will last as long as the toy.
The shape of this toy is unique I don’t think that I have seen another one quite like it, I like the slightly pointed  egg like shape and the fact that it doesn’t look like a sex toy, I don’t think that I would be to worried about anyone spotting this on the side in my bedroom as I don’t think that most people would know immediately what it was, unless that is they either have one or want one. When it is in its little pouch it would sit quite happily in your underwear drawer and blend in perfectly with your underwear.
Overall I think that I have found myself a new favourite, for a long while it has been the Doc Johnson magic bullet, but this one trumps it, it is excellent quality, a great shape has a fantastic amount of almost silent power, and its rechargeable to so no worries about finding batteries for it. 

Lelo Mia 2 review

This Lelo Mia 2 was sent to me for review, it arrived very quickly in some lovely discrete and protective packaging.

Lelo Mia 2 comes in black

 

Mia 2 Presentation

As with all of the Lelo toys that I have the pleasure of owning it came in an outer box with a nice picture of the toy and brief description of what it does on one side and the lelo branding on the other side, inside the outer box is an inner back box which could almost be described as a gift box, and inside this the Vibrator presented beautifully in a moulded protective layer of foam with a sample of lelo intimate massage lotion, instruction manual and satin storage pouch.

What you need to know

The Lelo Mia 2 is a small bullet vibrator and it is charged through a USB, the cap just twists off to reveal the USB connector and then it can be connected to your laptop, pc or even mobile phone charger if you have one with a USB connector. When it is charging there is a pink like which flashes on and off, this light stays on once the Mia 2 is fully charged, the Mia is relatively quick to charge taking approximately an hour.

Fully waterproof and USB-rechargeable

 

Is the Mia 2 waterproof?

The Lelo Mia 2 is completely waterproof meaning that it is suitable for use in the bath or shower if that is your thing, personally I don’t like using toys in the bath but I still think that waterproof toys are great, they are just so much easier to clean than the non waterproof kind, Lelo recommend that you use a good quality sex toy cleaner to clean your Mia, but you can use warm soapy water if you wish, just don’t put it in the dishwasher, I have a feeling it won’t come out quite as it went in.

How I found it

The Mia 2 has 6 modes, this took me a little while to work out, the only buttons on the Mia 2 are a plus and a minus button, which to me was just on and off, plus faster and slower, how do you activate those other modes?

Well apparently its not that hard even if its not that obvious at first glance, you need to turn it on and then hold the + button down for 2 seconds it will then activate the next mode, you do this again to work your way through all of the settings, I had to go on the Lelo site and read the manual to work out how to get it to go back to constant and their answer which is that you hold the – button for 1 second. When you have it on the mode that you like you use the + and – buttons to change the speed of the vibrations until it is are the right power level for you. The button on the front of the Mia lights up whenever you press it to show that you have pressed it, and like other Lelo’s when the battery is running low it also flashes.

Key Features

  • With a sculpted tip for accurate external stimulation, MIA 2 has a discreet lipstick design for spontaneous pleasure, whenever and wherever you like.
  • USB-rechargeable with travel lock makes MIA 2 the ultimate travel companion.
  • 6 vibration patterns with adjustable strength that let you find your perfect level of clitoral stimulation.
  • Fully waterproof to 1 m for enjoyment in bath or shower, as well as easier cleaning.
  • Award-winning packaging with full 1-year warranty and 10-year quality guarantee.

The Mia 2 is pretty powerful for such a dinky little bullet vibrator, when it is on full it is more powerful than any other bullet vibrator that I have tried, it is also nice and quiet and the vibrations are lovely and rumbly and deep not buzzy and shallow that often leave me feeling ever numb. The vibrations in the Mia 2 are concentrated in the rounded tip of the vibrator and they do slightly travel down the whole body when it is in use, but the power is definitely in that tip.

I like the look of the Mia 2, it is designed to look a bit like a lippy so you can pop it in your handbag or make up bag when out and about and not raise any eyebrows and I have to say that in this case they have succeeded this really does look like something that you might find in anyone’s hand bag, even the metal strips around the middle adds to this look, I suppose you would have to know lelo and it would have to be showing in just the right way for it to stand out as a vibrator.

The Lelo Mia is the 1st Lelo toy that I have had that isn’t made from silicone, its made from ABS plastic which is body safe and easy to clean, it is even safe for use with any lubricant and for storage with any material.

Overall I am impressed with this cute little Lelo Mia 2, its small, discrete, well packaged, easy to charge, light, quiet and easy to clean, its even got a good amount of power in it, this would make a lovely gift or just a fantastic little addition to anyone’s toy collection.
