The Lelo Siri has always appealed to me. It looks dainty and cute, like a pet rock you’re very fond of. I’d never had the chance to try one, and from the reviews I’ve read, most people were looking forward to a Siri 2 because of much-needed updates. Lo and behold, there has been an update and I have one.

I’ve had my Lelo Siri 2 for several weeks now. It’s a toy that I wasn’t allowed to talk about, and therefore unable to review, so I’ve had more than enough time to use it leisurely without time constraints. Timelines don’t affect my clits opinion on things, but it does mean I have had the opportunity to choose to use it. I’ve had the chance to let my clit crave it, rather than having it forced upon it because I need to write. And the Lelo Siri 2 is a toy I do crave.

The Siri 2 fits nicely in my palm, it has Lelo’s gloriously smooth, not-very-linty silicone and is finally, thankfully, waterproof.  Continue reading »

The general consensus is that the Lelo Mona 2 is one of the best vibrators out there. A lot of bloggers will choose the Mona 2 when faced with the question of which toy they’d bring with them if they were to be stranded on an island. It can be used internally or externally, giving you the option to figure out what you like the most. It seems that most people enjoy using it more externally than internally, and I can’t argue. The Mona 2 has a nice penetrating rumble to it on the lower speeds, which get buzzier as they increase, but still have enough depth to them not to numb.

It’s not the most powerful vibrator out there, it’s not a Doxy wand, but it packs a good punch, that should be more than enough to bring your average user to orgasm.

Before I had money to spend on expensive vibes, before I cared about what type of vibration I’d get, I lusted over the Lelo Gigi. I thought it looked better. I thought the Mona was ugly, I didn’t like the shape. But then I read a bunch of reviews, really positive reviews, and decided I’d buy the Mona instead of the Gigi. Apparently it was stronger, and if I was going to spend so much money on a single vibrator, I wanted my moneys worth of power.

The one time I saw it in store, in its glass cabinet with the other luxury toys, it looked smaller than I expected, and I was a little disappointed that this was the great vibe I’d heard all about. It gave me a very “…That’s it????” sort of reaction. I still had my mind set on it though; I’m stubborn. It’s like an optical illusion. It seems kinda small, until you have it in hand and then it’s like, “Oh wait, it’s not too bad“. Mona’s max circumference sits at about 4.5” and insertable length is about the same. I find most toys are like this. You read the sizing details, measure it with a tape to imagine what you’re going to get, and it still looks smaller when you actually get it. The Mona just looks bigger, rather than smaller.

Mona and I have a somewhat turbulent relationship. Before Mona, I’d only ever had cheap clit vibes, with the exception of a $70 mini bodywand that I now never use. My tastes have matured. My first reaction on the Mona was that I adored the rumble on its lower speeds. I still do. Holding it against my vulva I can feel it radiate through me and it’s glorious. I was immediately converted, finally understanding what everyone meant when they described a vibrator as ‘rumbly’.

If you’ve never felt a higher end vibrator and still don’t understand ‘rumbly’, the difference is a lot like cheap earplugs (the music ones not the ear protection ones) that you get for $10 at any store and those expensive headphones that cost a kidney. Continue reading »

I was super excited for the Lelo Mona Wave. Really, really, really excited. As soon as I got a sneak peek of its impending release, I knew I had to have it. Check out my review of the Mona 2 to read my feelings on it, but long story short, it makes my G-spot happy. The shape of the Mona is perfect and when inserted, if I push my hips down, it moves with my body and pushes right against my G-spot. The Mona Wave is designed to mimic the come-hither motion of fingers and stimulate the G-spot, which sounded like it would provide the movement I usually use with my Mona 2. Mona’s vibrations are also pretty great. They’re a buzzy/rumbly hybrid that pack more than enough punch. I need that sort of power when it comes to G-spot toys.

So I was pretty bummed that after charging my Mona Wave, my immediate reaction to turning it on was that it didn’t feel as strong as the Mona 2. I kept quiet, surely they wouldn’t have downed the vibration speed? Well. They did*. Several other bloggers have confirmed it. I haven’t gone crazy, Lelo might have, but I have not.

The Mona Wave is the same size, with the same curvy shape that Mona 2 has. There’s a few differences though. Continue reading »

LELO’s ELLA is held high among the sex blog community. Its wonderful design and impeccable quality leaves no questions as to why. From the packaging to the product itself, it all screams luxury.

ELLA is a dual-ended dildo made from FDA approved body safe silicone. It’s 100% phthalate free and non-toxic. It’s easily cleaned (warm soapy water) or sterilized (boiled, 10% bleach mix) Because it’s made from silicone, your best bet is to stick to water-based lube as silicone lube can damage the toy. ELLA measures 7.5″ in length and 1.4″ wide.

ELLA is my first luxury toy. I’d seen so many great reviews of people finding their g-spot and learning to squirt with this toy and I needed it. Now, I have no problem with squirting, it comes easy to me. I don’t need targeted g-spot simulation to squirt, hell, sometimes all it takes is alternating between fingering and rubbing my clit and I’ll be gushing. I don’t actually know where my g-spot is, I know it’s there and I know it’s receptive, but I’ve never really pinpointed where it is. Until ELLA. Continue reading »
