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 »
