Ina is remarkably similar to Mona, in fact they came out at the same time and are nearly identical except Ina is a dual-action vibrator and therefore has an additional arm jutting out from the top of it designed to hit the clit. I’ve not reviewed or experienced too many dual-action vibrators, I tend to steer clear of them since they are so anatomy dependent and usually not made out of silicone, but my LELO fetish made Ina impossible to resist obtaining. My quest to own every LELO product would not be put aside simply because of the possibility of Ina not lining up with me perfectly.
At first I was mildly indifferent to this toy, thinking I would love Mona more and that no LELO item could top my beloved Gigi. I knew Ina would be gorgeous and wonderful, still an amazing pleasure object simply by nature of being made by LELO, but since dual-action style vibrators are so anatomy dependent I wasn’t sure it would work with me. I was encouraged by other reviews of it, as it seems to be one of those toys that either works for you perfectly or is an absolute failure, and I had to find out which it would be for me. Ina exceeded all of my expectations and then some.
Like all LELO toys Ina comes in a fancy black box with a sleeve over it that matches the color of the toy inside. I had thought I wanted a purple Ina, but upon receiving my lime green Ina I was instantly in love with the color. The box contains the toy, a charging cord (all LELO toys are rechargeable), a multi-language instructional booklet, a one-year warranty, and LELO’s 10-year quality guarantee. If anything goes wrong with Mona within ten years after purchasing LELO will recycle Mona and give you 50% off your next purchase.
Ina’s controls are the newfangled design identical to Mona and Siri. There are four buttons arranged in a diamond near the bottom of the toy: an up arrow (top), a down arrow (bottom), a plus button (right), and a minus button (left). The plus and minus buttons control the intensity of the vibrations and the up and down buttons control the vibration type. As I already mentioned, Ina is rechargeable. When plugged in the buttons of the toy flash white and turn solid when Ina is fully charged. If you use Ina to the point of a nearly drained battery the buttons will conveniently let you know of this by glowing red when you try to turn it on.
Like all of LELO’s newest vibrators Ina is stronger and less buzzy than it’s predecessors. One of the noteworthy things about Ina’s design that is becoming more and more common among luxury sex toys is there are two separate motors inside of it, one in the insertable shaft and the other at the tip of the clitoral arm.
Ina has eight vibration settings which take advantage of the double motors with patterns that shift from one motor to the other. For the most part I just use the first setting, a constant vibration in both the shaft and the arm. The other vibration settings are: vibration mostly in the shaft and a little in the arm, vibration mostly in the arm and a little in the shaft, alternating pulse between arm and shaft, in sync pulse in both, a rollercoaster vibration in both, a second rollercoaster-type vibration that is different in a way I cannot explain, and a vibration pattern I can only describe as random pulses that kind of sound like a song.
Luckily the clitoral arm is super flexible, otherwise I would not like Ina at all. After inserting the shaft I have to bend and flex the arm to get it in the right position, if I just left it where it falls naturally I would get absolutely no clitoral stimulation at all and if that was the case I would simply use Mona instead. I say “luckily” because once I do get Ina positioned correctly it takes me nearly no time at all to have a wonderful hands-free orgasm.
This is the beauty of Ina. The arm, being positioned correctly, inserts an unbelievable amount of pressure. I love pressure in all things clitoral (except my Eroscillator) and I love Ina’s pressure. I love having something inserted and something on my clit and Ina is the only toy I own that does both of these very well and simultaneously. Does this mean Ina is my favorite toy ever? No. That honor is happily bestowed on the Eroscillator. It does mean, however, that Ina is amazing, compact, and a great dual-action vibrator and Ina is my favorite LELO toy. And that’s saying something.
Because Ina does everything it is also not the best couples toy, assuming your partner wants to be doing something to your genitals at the same time. If that’s not an issue then just forget I said anything.
As I already mentioned, the downfall of dual action vibrators are that they are so anatomy dependent. Ina will either work perfectly for you or not at all, and which one it is is nearly impossible to determine without trying the toy. Because of the flexibility in the clitoral arm I do believe Ina has a wider range for working with bodies than most dual action vibrators, but it may be a bit of a gamble if it will work with you or not.
