I was contacted by Lovebuddy and asked to choose something from their site for review, after a good look through I was drawn to the Lelo Ina 2, having always had problems with rabbits and always really wanted them to work for me, I was hoping that this would be the rabbit style vibrator to change all of my previous thoughts about rabbit vibrators.
It arrived via courier in some discrete packaging, which was lucky for me as my neighbour took it in for me, Inside the boring brown box was my lelo packaged a box with some nice clear images of the Ina 2 on the front and some good details about what it does on the side. Inside this outer box is another black gift type box, and inside that in its specially moulded packaging is the Ina 2 and all of the bits that come with it (charger, storage pouch, lube sachet, instructions, guarantee card).
Before you use it
Before I could use the Ina 2 it needed charging, charging a lelo is a piece of cake, just open the cap on the base and slot in the power connector and then plug it into the mains, it will flash whist it is charging and stop flashing when it is fully charged. The initial charge will take about 2hrs but this should give you up to 4hours of playtime. If you top up the charge after each use it shouldn’t take so long to charge after the initial charge, when it starts to run out of charge the buttons will flash when you turn it on.
Once it had charged and before I could use it I needed to take off the travel lock, all lelo’s are delivered with a very small amount of charge and they all need the travel lock taking off before you can use it, to turn off the travel lock on the Ina 2 you need to hold down all of the buttons for a few seconds.
How to use the Lelo Ina 2
Finally after charging it and taking off the travel lock it was ready to go, to turn it on you hold down the + button, it comes on with a constant vibration and holding the + down will increase the speed of the vibrations, to turn it off you just hold down the – button until the vibrations stop. The vibrations on the Ina 2 are very strong, I was amazed by how powerful the vibrations where, the Ina 2 really is good for those that need power. There are also 2 other buttons on the control panel, these buttons let you scroll through the various patterns which the Ina has, some of the patterns are very good, as they seem to alternate which part of the Ina is vibrating and I haven’t seen this on any other rabbit.
The Ina 2 is also a pretty quiet vibrator, all the Lelo’s that I have tried have been quiet and this is no exception if you live in a shared house you won’t have any problems with them hearing this one when it is turned on.
So I gave it a try… all in the interest of writing a proper review you understand, using a small amount of waterbased lube (the Ina 2 is silicone and you should never use silicone lube with silicone toys) I slid the largest part inside me and the smaller end sat on my clit, very very firmly, to firmly in fact, it was a little pinchy, and not comfortable at all. I tried to change the position of the clit vibe slightly as it does have a little flex in it, but no matter what it sprang back again making it pinchy again. Clearly this is another rabbit style vibe that is not designed for my body. I removed the body and just held the small clit vibe part against my clit, this vibe is very very strong and it feels amazing, it is just a real shame that I wasn’t able to use it as a rabbit as I imagine that if I had that it would have been pretty mind blowing.

The Ina 2 is waterproof so it is suitable for use in the bath or shower and can be washed in warm soapy water after use, I always use an antibacterial sex toy cleaner after cleaning my toys just to be on the safe side and to make sure everything is sparkly clean and ready for use.
The Lelo Ina 2 is made from supersoft super smooth silicone which isn’t sticky and has no smell to it at all, it feels really lovely in the hand.
Overall I feel that I am clearly not made for this vibrator, its just to pinchy and not flexible enough for me, which is a real shame as the quality and feel of the toy is great, its rechargeable, waterproof, silicone, non smelly, quiet and super powerful. If my body was a slightly different shape it would feel great but sadly I am not.
