Review: LELO Isla

Oh, LELO, how I love you. I have mooned over every product since I was sent my very first LELO pleasure object. I’ve made it my mission to own every LELO product. I drool every time a new product of theirs comes out, every time I have the pleasure of exploring a new creation of theirs, and Isla was no exception. Isla is one of the new Insignia line which boasts a different look, new controls, and a completely waterproof body.

Isla comes in LELO’s signature black box v3.0. With the original line the box was black canvas with a plastic cut-out shape for the toy and a plastic cover then a big open space at the bottom for the manual and charging cord. Version 2.0 was a black cardboard box with a weird paper and plastic clam-shell type bit holding the toy inside and a sectioned off bottom which I was not really a fan of. The Insignia (3.0) version is a black cardboard box with a foam cut-out that fits the toy and one for the included Insignia Broach. On one end there is a cardboard lift-up tab to get underneath the cut-out foam where the manual, warranty, quality guarantee, and satin storage bag are stored.

I was not the only reviewer to mention disliking the v2.0 style, especially the clamshell thing, so I was extremely happy for the change to the current packaging. It’s definitely the best yet, it is both better looking and better functioning than the two previous versions, in my opinion. LELO stepped up the class of the Insignia line by including a broach with the Insignia logo on it, a triple infinity symbol, which is quite beautiful. It’s silver to match the toy’s design and not at all obviously linked to a sex toy.

Speaking of the design, I absolutely love the way Isla and all of the Insignia line looks. The cut-out handle and mix of the textures of their smooth silicone with the metallic-coated ABS plastic is just gorgeous and feels wonderful, as per usual with LELO. The metallic sides of the toy are concave and thinner than the silicone sides making Isla more oval shaped than circular like most sex toys. I was a bit disappointed, however, due to Isla’s lack of curve. It has a gorgeous silhouette but the curve on it is just not very pronounced so it doesn’t hit the g-spot very easily. It can be angled that way, however, and since it’s not pliable at all it’s quite wonderful when it does, but it takes effort.

Gone are the four control buttons of old to be replaced with three buttons: plus, minus, and mode. Intuitive enough, you turn Isla’s vibration strength on and up with the plus, down with the minus, and cycle through the familiar eight types of sensation with the mode button. Just like Ina, Mona, and the other newer LELO toys Isla’s last sensation mode that seems to play a song and even beeps. Strange but cool. The vibrations themselves are moderately deep and fairly strong. It’s no powerhouse but it is pleasant and can get me off without problem.

As I already mentioned, Isla is completely waterproof which both makes it more versatile and easier to clean than previous LELO products. This wonderful addition is achieved due to the charging port being covered with a thin self-healing silicone membrane. In order to charge it you have to push the adapter through the silicone creating a tiny tear. Even though there is a tear it is not visible to the naked eye once unplugged due to the “self-healing” technology. I don’t know how it works, but it does keep Isla completely waterproof.

While the charging port makes it easier to clean Isla also has a small groove all along where the metallic ABS plastic meets the silicone as the grooves around the buttons that all need a little special attention. Still, that is a small price to pay for the gorgeous look of the Insignia line, so I don’t mind so much.

LELOisla

As with previous LELO products the area around the three buttons on Isla blink while it is charging and turn solid when the charging is finished. LELO claims that two hours of charging will bring you four hours of play time but the standby time is also excellent. I charged my Isla when I got it about a month ago and have not had to recharge it since. You can also lock Isla by pressing down the plus and minus buttons at the same time until the light turns off and do the same until the light turns on to unlock it. In case you need to turn it off in a hurry you can also press down the same buttons when it is on to turn it off immediately without having to press and hold the minus button until it turns off.

Although Isla wasn’t as perfect as I was hoping for it to be I still enjoy it and tend to use it more like a clitoral vibrator than an insertable one, but that also has to do with my general indifference to insertable vibrators and preference for clitoral ones. I’m very much hoping to try out Alia and Soraya not just because they’re beautiful but I will probably be more keen on using both of those for their intended purposes. The design and beauty as well as the overall quality of LELO products makes up for the subtle curve in my book anyway.

Much thanks to LELO for sending me the Isla to review!

Review: Vida Urja [Heavy Metal Week]

I wanted to like the Vida Urja. I really really did. I love the idea of remote controlled toys, they can be so naughty and sexy in the right hands. I love going out with something tucked against my clit or inside of me with the remote in Onyx’s pocket. Unfortunately, though Urja is gorgeous it just did not live up to my hopes for it.

Urja (ûrj’əh) is packaged beautifully, it really is a luxury toy in every sense of the word. In addition to the vibrator and controller, both of which I’ll talk about later, Urja also comes with a power adapter (yes, the vibrator half of Urja is rechargeable!), a faux leather carrying case, a storage bag that closes with a ribbon, a user manual, and a standard one-year product warranty. The presentation is gorgeous and luxurious and if this review were based on presentation alone this toy would easily have been a five.

vidaurja1

Both the vibrator and controller are hourglass shaped and pretty sexy looking. I’m not big on pink but I love the black with pink accents and think it looks excellent. They are just plain beautifully designed and well-made. The shiny middle parts of both of them are aluminum (qualifying them for Heavy Metal Week) and they have matte silicone on each end. The pink is, I believe, ABS plastic, though I haven’t found documentation to back me up on that. The removal string on the vibrator is made of silicone and is slightly stretchy but difficult to break.

The vibrator half of Urja is the one that is plugged in, it has a silicone cover for it’s power port therefore making it watertight since it is designed to be inserted. The controller is powered by a weird little 23A battery which is very nicely included with purchase so you don’t have to go around searching for it. The controller of the only other remote-controlled vibrator I’ve owned was powered with the same battery and I’ve actually seen some sex toy shops carrying it specifically because, I assume, it’s pretty common for sex toy remotes.

Urja claims to charge in two hours for a resulting two hours of play time which seems, frankly, like a bad charging-to-play-time-ratio. Perhaps I’m spoiled, but it seems most rechargeable toy batteries get far better ratios than that. Also, when plugged in there is no light or indicator that it is charging at all and no indicator when it is done, so you just have to plug it in and assume it’s working as it’s supposed to. I do not like this. At all.

The controller has a single button that is not always easy to press. Luckily the controller does have a strip right around the button that does light up pink when you press it correctly. You have to press the button down rather firmly and for a few seconds before the vibrator will turn on. I assume this is so that it is not just going to randomly turn the vibrator on if the controller is jostling around in your pocket, so I can forgive this even though it is a little annoying.

Urja is supposed to have a range of about 20 feet between the controller and the vibrator that it will work within. While I was able to turn it on from across the room it wasn’t exactly easy and seems to work far better the closer the controller is to the vibrator. It also works best with a direct line between the controller and vibrator. It was not so easy if I was to either side of the person, perhaps there was too much flesh in the way or something.

vidaurja2

The vibrations themselves are not too exciting. There are five speeds, from “is that on?” to “that’s nice, but not that powerful.” Every speed is a constant vibration, there are no fancy pulsing vibration patterns, though they aren’t necessarily needed. In order to turn Urja off, however, you must cycle through all five speeds, which is quite annoying. It would be better if there was an on/off button and two up/down buttons or at very least separate on/off and speed buttons. Oh well.

Since Urja is made for insertion the vibrations are also dampened a little bit when worn. It can be used against the clit but there isn’t a great way to hold it in place. The vibrations themselves aren’t too loud when inserted, though if you’re in a very quiet restaurant it would be possible to hear the vibrations, but in the age of vibrating cell phones it might not be too terribly noticeable. In a loud restaurant, bar, or club, however, no problem.

Where Urja really shines is for light teasing of a partner in an otherwise noisy situation. Unless you do not need much vibration strength to get off I would say Urja is not ideal for that, but, like every sex toy, it will work better for some than others. Though, for the most part, if you are using it internally that alone will probably not get you off, so the vibration strength might not be a deal breaker for you. It is adorable, well-made, and if a few things changed about it I think it could be just about perfect. Alas.

Review: LELO Ina

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.

Review: LELO Mona

The way I feel about LELO toys is admittedly a little fanatical. I aspire to own them all. I did, in fact, have all of them briefly before they released their newest items. I think LELO products are gorgeous works of sexual art that function as well as they look. I haven’t met a LELO toy I haven’t loved and Mona is no exception.

Like all LELO toys Mona is rechargeable and completely body-friendly. The insertable half of Mona is made out of silicone and the handle is made out of ABS plastic. Both are phthalate-free, non-porous, and pleasant to the eye and hand. Mona also comes in a fancy black box with an extensive user manual 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. My inner hippie likes this.

Mona and the very similar Ina were the first with LELO’s slightly different control panel and packaging. The older toys have a circular control strip slightly reminiscent of an iPod, though not a touch-pad, but still pretty cool. The new control buttons are four separate round buttons in the same place and order as the old ones. The plus and minus buttons control the intensity of the vibrations and the up and down arrows control the pattern of vibrations just like on the older style.

There’s one thing that makes me actually prefer the older style buttons: the locking feature. LELO is wonderful in including the ability to lock all of their toys so the battery doesn’t drain while being stored. In the previous versions you could simply press in the center of the circular control strip until the light around the strip comes on and it would be locked. In this version you have to press each of the four buttons down together. Also, on the older versions you could immediately turn the toy off if it is on no matter what mode or vibration pattern you were in by pressing the same as if you were locking it. With the new controls you can do this the same way as locking as well, but it’s just simply not as easy. Using one finger versus four fingers to do something like that might not seem like a lot, but in the blissful post-orgasm state there is definitely a difference.

I’m generally not as big on internal vibration as I am on clitoral vibrations, but Mona excells at both. The curve and fat head hit the g-spot nicely and the wide end is easy to position right against the clit. I would still say that of all the LELO toys I own Gigi is definitely my favorite multi-tasker, but Mona doesn’t come too far behind. Mona also boasts being stronger than the previous versions, and in a side-by-side comparison I actually could notice a difference. If you need a little extra power to get off then the newer products may work better for you than the old.

I really love the shape of Mona, it’s kind of right in between Liv and Elise length-wise and a mixture of the two width-wise since it has a skinny mid-section about the same size as Liv that tapers into a bulbous end about the same size as Elise. Of course, combining two toys I already loved to make a new toy means I’m going to love this one as well. Mona, however, is easier to wield than Elise, being thinner, and, due to it’s larger surface area gives better contact than Liv.

I just can’t not love LELO toys. They each have their own plusses and minuses and due to their individual features I do believe that there is one for just about everyone. They are definitely luxury toys in every sense of the word and well worth their price.

Much thanks to Adult Sensations sex toys for sending me LELO Mona!

Review: Fun Factory G-Twist

funfactorygtwist

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Fun Factory toys, I have quite a lot of them and they’re all made with high standards of quality and care as well as body safe materials, all factors of a quality company. Not only is this a Fun Factory toy, but the G-Twist was made specifically by Fun Factory for Good Vibrations, an amazing sex-positive feminist and all-around-awesome sex toy shop, designed by the GV staff to be the ultimate insertable g-spot vibrator.

I’m personally not much of a fan of internal vibrations, I prefer my insertables to not vibrate and strong vibrations on my clit, so I was a little unsure of how well the G-Twist would work for me. The benefit, though, of having a vibrator that is made for g-spot and internal stimulation is that you can just use it without the vibe essentially as a dildo. My girlfriend Marla, however, thought it was wonderful in both vibrating and non-vibrating modes.

The G-Twist is a gorgeous specimen of g-spot toy and vibrator, long and relatively thick with wonderful ridges all over it. The ridges add to the girth of it a bit, making it suitable even for a size queen such as myself, and the curve of it finds the g-spot easily and presses in just the right places. The vibrations are fairly strong, although nowhere near hitachi strong but few things are, and can be felt easily from base to tip. I couldn’t get off clitorally using this toy alone, but used internally paired with a strong clitoral vibrator it was heavenly.

The majority of the toy is extremely bendable, the last four or five inches or so, which is surprising for a toy with such vibrations. At the base where the silicone meets the handle, battery case, and dial-controls there is a ridge of silicone which can actually be bent up during use to hit the clit. I did this for Marla while we were trying the G-Twist out, and she said it was extremely pleasant.

gtwist

The G-Twist also comes in six different colors (above), all of which are beautiful.

I’ve heard other reviewers have had issues with the battery case, but I didn’t find it to be true. It was a little tricky, as you have to push in either side of the bottom at just the right spot to get the batter compartment to pop out, but once I did it the first time it was easy to do so from then on.

The dial control was interesting to use, as it can be turned either clockwise or counter-clockwise and continuously in 360+ degrees, although only a 180 degree amount of it will turn the toy on. The vibrations vary from barely there to nice and strong depending on where the dial is turned to. I haven’t had any issues with accidentally turning the dial while using it, which is a big plus in my book.

A big huge thank you to Good Vibrations for providing me with the Fun Factory G-Twist!

Review: Angelo [Fun Factory Week]

Fun Factory Week concludes with a cute mini-vibe!

Did you see the rest of Fun Factory Week with the Boss (Lady), Cuffies Freestyle, Smartballs, and Bloomy reviews?

angelo

Angelo is a slightly different kind of vibe than the Boss Lady as he is part of Fun Factory’s miniVibes collection. He’s, well, smaller obviously, and as he takes two AAA batteries rather than four he is less intense as well.

The shape is pleasing to the eye and I love the rippley designs on the shaft and head. While this vibrator was very good and did it’s job to get me off there was just no “wow” factor to it for me. That may be because I’m a bit of a toy snob by now, and while there was nothing wrong with Angelo per se I just wasn’t all that impressed with him.

The idea behind the miniVibes is that they are small enough to carry around with you and fit in a purse or backpack easier than larger, bulkier vibes. This is definitely true, it’s small and compact, rather adorable. It’s also meant to be versatile, with the curve at the end of Angelo being made for both clitoral and g-spot stimulation.

I especially enjoyed Angelo for clitoral stimulation, not with the tip of the curve but with the outer curve itself. I fit the flat back of the curving tip against my clit and was able to use a good amount of pressure, which was very nice and not something all vibrators can do. If you like a lot of pressure Angelo is great for that reason alone.

However, g-spot stimulation was kind of a bust. Angelo just wasn’t really long enough or the right shape or size to get my g-spot where I needed it. Few toys can get me off on g-spot stimulation alone but Angelo not only couldn’t do that but had a difficult time finding my g-spot even with the assist of my knowledgeable hands. Luckily I’m not all to into internal vibration anyway, preferring to keep my vibrators external and my dildos internal, but that could definitely be difficult for some. However, others also may not find it as difficult to find the g-spot with Angelo as I did, so that’s something to keep in mind as well.

Overall Angelo is a decent vibe and great as far as portability. A lot of smaller vibes would either be more expensive or not as well made, which is definitely a plus.

Review: Boss (Lady) [Fun Factory Week]

Welcome to Fun Factory Week!

I have five Fun Factory toys to review this week, and I’m starting off with one of my favorites, a Babeland exclusive, Boss, or possibly Boss Lady.

bossmine1

There’s a little confusion over this vibe going around which I definitely share. I actually went to the Babeland store here in Seattle and was able to hold an original Boss in my hand (image on the left below) which is different than the one I received.

When this was offered it was offered with the image and description of the Boss, the item on the left, but what arrived was the Boss Lady, the item pictured below on the right, although not the hot pink version (which I was thankful for) although that seems to be the only color currently available.

Having tried the old-style Boss in the Babeland store I was actually thankful that I got the newer version, as I liked the upgrades better. The newer Boss Lady has two push-buttons to change vibration intensity and vibration patterns, a plus and a minus, while the old-style Boss had a round dial to turn it on and off and I’m unsure if it had vibration patterns though I don’t think it did.

The older-style Boss I tried out in the store did not work very well, while it turned on it was difficult to turn back off because the dial went around and around and I had to find the right spot to turn it off. However, this could also have to do with the fact that it was a demo version that had been out for customers to turn on and off over and over probably for quite some time. The new style Boss’ buttons are somewhat hard to press, especially the first few times I used it, which was highly annoying. They seem to get easier each time I press them, though, which is good, but they are still somewhat stiff.

bossmine2

In addition to the stiff plus and minus buttons the Boss it also has a “turbo” or “booster” button beneath them (see image on the left below) which is supposed to up the vibration of the toy just when you need it most to help you get over the edge. I was not impressed at all with the turbo button as it’s extremely difficult to push in the first place, much more difficult than the plus and minus buttons were, and continues to be difficult. It also doesn’t really add that much from what I can tell, so I doubt I’ll actually use it.

There have been quite a few other reviews of Boss which talk about issues with the toy working for a variety of reasons, but I had no issues with mine aside from the stiff buttons. Still, for the price one would hope there shouldn’t be common issues with operation malfunctioning.

The other major difference between the two styles is that the old style had a smooth silicone finish, much like that of other silicone toys, but the new style has a velvety matte finish that is absolutely divine! I couldn’t stop touching it once I got it and love the finish, though it does create more friction than other smoother silicone finishes and that combined with the sublime girth of the toy means a good amount of lubrication is required before insertion.

Speaking of girth, I do quite love the size of the Boss, thick and wonderful without being overwhelming or daunting. Quite perfect, really, especially for an amateur size queen such as myself. Boss is semi-realistic looking with a distinct head and veins at the base of the insertable silicone, and has a wonderful g-spot curve which I could definitely feel and adored.

I adore the black color and am disappointed that Babeland only seems to have the hot pink for sale, although while I was at the store I was told the color selection on Fun Factory toys is somewhat sporadic and they basically just get whatever Fun Factory sends to them regardless of color requests.

Honestly, I’m not big on internal vibrations as I prefer my vibrations clitoral and although Boss’ vibrations are substantial and wonderful for clitoral stimulation he’s rather cumbersome when used that way. However, I love Boss’ girth and the velvety texture is just delicious so I know I’m going to be using him a lot as a dildo at least (which he does very well) even if not with vibration included.

Review: Rude Boy

rudeboy

Hi there, guest reviewer Onyx here with my first solo sex toy review!

Today I will be reviewing the Rude Boy prostate massager, courtesy of Tabu Toys.

First let’s get the boring technical details out of the way so we can boldly dive into all the great reasons why every guy on the planet should own one of these amazing toys.

The Rude Boy is a high quality toy, made from phthalate free medical grade silicone. It is therefore hypo-allergenic and non-porous and can be boiled to sterilize it provided you remove the vibrating bullet first of course. As with most silicone toys you should use water-based lubricants, and avoid using silicone based lubes as they may have adverse effects on the toy itself.

The Rude Boy is an insertable prostate massager that is designed to stimulate both the prostate and perineum simultaneously. The shaft is inserted in the anus, while the nubby base is pressed against the perineum. It has a simple press-button that activates the vibrating bullet in the base and the vibrations travel easily to the end of the toy causing what I found to be an amazing degree of stimulation.

Prostate stimulation is something relatively new to me, but something I am rapidly becoming addicted to. This is my first time using a vibrating prostate massager and all I can say is WOW! The dual stimulation provided by the tip and base were intensely pleasurable and it seemed to hit my P-spot just right. Combined with stimulation of the penis this has led to some of the best orgasms I have ever had. The toy is a very nice size and even anal beginners should find it comfortable with the right amount of lube, the soft silicone and the superb design makes the insertion very smooth and pleasant.

Personally I prefer to insert the toy and kind of leave it in place, just focusing on the vibration instead of moving it in and out, but that might be different from others. One caveat is that due to the non-bulbous design it may slip out rather easily, so you might want to use one hand to hold it in place, or let a partner do that for you. The plus side of this is that you also use this hand to press the base more firmly against the perineum, creating an even more intense stimulation. The downside is that it makes it hard to keep the toy in while fucking unless your partner is on top.

One of the many downsides of the widespread homophobia in our society is that many men seem to have an irrational fear of receiving any kind of anal stimulation or penetration. To them I would say that they have no idea what they’re missing out on with toys such as the rude boy and strongly encourage them to banish their fear and allow themselves to experience the mind-blowing pleasure it can bring.

Thank you so much Tabu Toys sex toys for letting me review the amazing Rude Boy!

Review: LELO Elise

Product Specs

Name: Elise

Manufacturer: LELO (Luxury Erotic Lifestyle Objects).

Materials: Medical-grade Silicone and ABS plastic.

Charge: Rechargeable

Length: 8 1/4″ (total) – 5 1/4″ (insertable)
Thickness: 1 1/4″ (diameter) – 4 1/2″ (around)

What I love: Two separate vibration centers, one at the tip and one at the base! Rechargeable, so no messing with batteries. Thick black satin carrying bag and black storage box. All-black vibrator (I’m a sucker for black toys). Curved for the g-spot, great for clitoral vibration as well but inserting Elise is what she is made for. Super quiet. Similar to Liv only bigger. Similar to Iris only smooth.
What I don’t love: What’s not to love?

Much much thanks to LELO for letting me review Elise. Don’t forget to check out my other LELO reviews!

Review: LELO Liv

Product Specs

Name: Liv

Manufacturer: LELO (Luxury Erotic Lifestyle Objects)

Materials: Medical-grade Silicone (dark blue) and ABS plastic (white).

Charge: Rechargeable

Length: 4″ (insertable) 7″ (total including handle)
Thickness: 3/4″ (diameter)

What I love: Sleek and elegant look, curved for delicious g-spot stimulation, easy to use, comes with satin carrying bag and black storage box. Rechargeable, so no messing with batteries. Quality like no other.
What I don’t love: Controls are too easy to hit and accidentally change the vibration setting while in the moment.

Much thanks to Babeland for letting me review Liv by LELO!
