Lelo Hula Pleasure Beads Review January 2014: Jessie:

Hula beads are the latest innovation from Lelo which are part kegel exerciser, part love egg and unique in that they not only vibrate but rotate as well.

I was sent the beads in the Ocean Blue colour which is fantastic, I much prefer the bright colours and it looks great so Iím glad this was an option. It comes with all the usual bits like the instruction manual, warranty card, sample of Leloís lubricant, mains charger plus 2 AAA batteries for use in the remote- all inside Leloís beautiful packaging.

The beads themselves are approximately 4Ē in insertable length (plus the retrieval cord which is another 3Ē) and 4.75Ē in circumference at their widest point.
The main body of the beads is seam free silicone but there is a gloss plastic covering where the cord is attached and the charging point is. They will need charging for about 1.5 hours and this will give you about 2 hours of play time.

As with other remote toys from Lelo, Hula beads have 8 settings (6 patterns and 2 sense motion settings) which are: constant vibration, pulse, fast pulse, low to high, wave and random plus the two sense motion settings. When the remote is held horizontally the vibrations are at a minimum but they increase as the remote is tilted so when held vertically they are at 100% or the intensity of the vibrations changes when you shake the remote.

After trying the Hula Beads out several times I have to say Iím thrilled with them, they are so versatile and manage to deliver a variety of sensations with little input from me.
Iíve found that due to them being slightly larger than some other love eggs, warming up for a bit before inserting fully will make things much easier and it also gives you a chance to try out the other ways the beads can be used.
As soon as the beads are switched on the upper section starts to rotate gently (the vibrator is inside the lower bead). Just holding the beads in my hand the upper bead feels nice when run along the outer labia and clitoris and the lower bead also makes a good clitoral vibrator as it sits nicely in place leaving the other bead rotating against the entrance to my vagina.

For internal use I inserted just the upper part at first, so the vibrator was still outside my body. Initially I didnít feel much as it was on a low setting and my muscles were stopping the rotation and causing the outer bead to rotate instead. However when I increased the speed it felt fantastic! I could have happily stayed like that for hours. I do find when using them like this they are more stimulating if you insert them then close your legs as this stops the outer part from moving around too much and forces the upper bead to rotate as it should.

I was able to insert them fully after a bit of warming up and they are really comfortable to wear.†
This is where I found my one and only problem with this toy however and that is the rotation and vibrations cannot be controlled separately. When using internally the rotation worked best for me when turned up to the highest setting but this of course meant the vibrations were on full as well which I found distracting somehow. As pleasurable as it was to wear I would have enjoyed it more if Iíd had more control.

One tip I would suggest for wearing internally is to be aware of where you place the retrieval cord. The vibrations carry surprisingly well down the cord so it seems a shame to waste the extra sensations.

They are really quiet, you can just about hear them quietly humming away when theyíre on the highest setting (if you listen out for them) and so I had no worries about wearing them out in public.
The remote is great if you fancy brightening up your day out but itís also a fantastic way of getting your partner involved with this toy and using it can be great foreplay as well.
The remote also vibrates, which is great at home (extra vibrator to use), but if you using this out and about it can get a bit loud on the higher settings so you can switch this of by holding the middle button down for a few seconds and a light will flash on it instead.

Overall Iím thoroughly impressed with the Hula beads. They can be used in so many different ways, theyíre completely waterproof and despite my gripe about the controls they do feel fantastic. Iíll certainly be using them again and again.

Lelo Tiani 3 Couples Massager

 


Lelo Tiani 3 Couples Massager Review December 2013: Jessie:

The Tiani 3 is the is the latest of this model of couples massagers from Lelo and offers twice as much power as previous models along with changes to the shape of the head to make it more comfortable and easy to wear.
First impressions of the toy were great. While the head of the toy is a good size at 1.25Ē in diameter and approximately 1Ē deep the toy itself actually feels quite delicate and unintimidating. The insertable part is approximately 3Ē in length and 1/4Ē in diameter at its widest point at the end. Itís also slightly thicker towards the end as there is a little ridge designed to stimulate your gspot.
Despite the obvious U shape to this toy it is incredibly flexible and will actually straighten out completely so there are no difficulties inserting it.

I chose the Tiani in black, this is the only Lelo toy I have in this colour but I have to say so far I think I prefer it to the pinks and purples.
As expected with Lelo products the packaging with this was lovely and inside the inner storage box, along with the Tiani, you receive the instruction manual, warranty card, charger, a sample of Lelos lubricant plus 2 AAA batteries for use with the remote.

The Tiani is made of seam free, body safe silicone and the remote is also made of silicone and gloss plastic and is approximately 2.5Ē in diameter. Itís rechargeable by a mains adapter and is plugged in by unscrewing the head of the toy to reveal the charging point. It will flash while charging and then stay lit when fully charged.

The Tiani 3 has 8 settings (6 patterns and 2 sense motion settings) which are: constant vibration, pulse, fast pulse, low to high, wave and random plus the two sense motion settings which are: when the remote is held horizontally the vibrations are at a minimum but they increase as the remote is tilted so when held vertically they are at 100% or the intensity of the vibrations changes when you shake the remote.
If you prefer it can be used without the remote by pressing the button on the front of the toy and pressing again to scroll through the 6 patterns but I do prefer it with the remote because using this also allows you to increase the speed on each setting which you canít do without it.

The remote also mimics the actions of the Tiani itself so can also be used as a vibrator but this can be switched of by holding down the middle button.

I tried this out by myself first of all. It was really easy to insert and easy to just wear as well. I couldnít walk about with it exactly but with close fitting underwear on it stayed in place quite well. I probably wouldnít go out with it in but it is fun around the house. I found that the size of the head of vibrator on this also really works. The depth as well as the width meant it sat really well.
When I first had it switched on, just in my hand I was surprised at how strong the vibrations on this are, they are very powerful, especially considering the size of it but when using it by myself I did find myself pressing on it to get more power because or course when using by yourself thereís no real pressure however it is worth pointing out that I do prefer very strong vibrations anyway.

When it came to use with my partner it was really easy. Because the insertable part of the toy is so slim it is very easy to put in and it stayed in place really well. The body contact of my partner meant that I got the added pressure I didnít have when using alone so the vibrations were much stronger so for me.
From my partners point of view it worked really well to. The vibrations travelled well and because itís inside me the position and feeling of vibration vary for him which it wouldnít so much with a cock ring.

The only real downside of this for me was that if using lube, when your hands are wet the remote can be a bit tricky to handle which can be frustrating but given all the plus points including the fact that the whole thing is completely waterproof itís a small problem.

Lelo Gigi 2 G-Spot Vibrator

 


Lelo Gigi 2 G-Spot Vibrator

 


Lelo Gigi 2 G-Spot Vibrator Review November 2013: Jessie:

I was really looking forward to trying the Gigi 2 as I enjoy g spot stimulation and while I do own other toys of this kind I tend not to use them as I found just fingers got the best results for me. However Iíd heard great things about the Gigi so I thought if any toy was going to work this would be it.
The vibrator itself is approximately 6.5Ē in length altogether with 4Ē of insertable length and is 4Ē in circumference at its widest point on the head of the vibrator. The Insertable part of the toy is made of medical grade silicone but it is a completely rigid toy, it does not bend like some other toys of this kind. You also receive a satin storage bag, a sachet of Lelo lubricant, the user manual and your Lelo authenticity card.

The Gigi uses a mains cable to charge which plugs into the bottom of the control handle and takes about 2 hours for a full charge. A white light will flash when charging and then stay on when fully charged which gives around 4 hours of play time.
The controls are set on a disc on the handle of the toy. There are up/down buttons used to controls the patterns and plus/minus buttons which are used to control the speed. There are 8 patterns on this which are: Constant, 3 pulse settings, escalating, 2 wave settings and random. The plus/minus buttons are a great feature on the Gigi as they can be used to control the speed on any of the patterns youíre using, not just on the constant vibration. The speed also increases quite gradually so itís easy to find the right intensity.
The buttons are easy to feel when in use and actually light up whenever itís pressed (handy if the lights are off I suppose) although I did find that sometimes this needed to be pressed quite firmly to get the patterns to change.

While this is mainly designed as a g spot vibrator it does work well as a clitoral vibrator. The vibrations are powerful and deep and the flat head means you can use the edges for more direct clitoral stimulation if you want. It is also incredibly quiet, if youíre concerned about being heard this is definitely one to consider.
When used for g spot stimulation I also found the Gigi worked really well although it did take a bit of getting used to. Because of the rigidity and shape of the toy it takes a little while to get it in the right place as if you pull too far down it can sit uncomfortably on your pubic bone which means it also doesnít work well for Ďthrustingí movements either.
However when it does hit the right spot it feels fantastic and the curve in the toy means it sits very comfortably. Itís also one of the few toys where I make use of all the settings and speeds.

A slight downside is that with the handle being made of plastic when it gets wet itís very slippery and it can make the buttons difficult to press, or in my case keep pressing them when I donít mean to.

Overall IĎm really pleased with the Gigi. Despite taking a bit of getting used to it works really well as a clitoral and a g spot vibrator. Itís rechargeable, completely waterproof and of course fantastic quality.

Lelo Ida

Lelo Ida Couples Massager Review October 2013: Jessie:

The Ida is the brand new coupleís massager from Lelo and unlike their previous offerings in couples toys the Ida not only vibrates but has a rotating shaft as well, all designed to stimulate both partners during intercourse.
As expected with Lelo products the packaging with this was lovely and inside the inner storage box, along with the massager itself, you receive the instruction manual, warranty card, mains charger, a sample of Lelos lubricant plus 2 AAA batteries for use with the remote.

The massager itself looks great. The clitoral stimulator is approximately 2.25Ē in diameter with an insertable shaft that is 3.5Ē long and 3Ē in circumference all made of seam free silicone.
The remote is also made of silicone and gloss plastic and is approximately 2.5Ē in diameter.

Before use it will need to be charged for two hours but then it will be ready to go.

The Ida can be used with or without the remote. If you want to use it without you switch it on by pressing the button opposite the charging point and then just keep pressing it to scroll through the various settings which are: constant vibration, pulse, fast pulse, low to high, wave and random.

The Ida does however have other settings but you need the remote to use them. To use the remote press the on button on the side of the Ida so it can connect to the remote (this may take a few seconds) and press the + button on the remote to switch on. The middle button on the remote will change the patterns but the + and Ė buttons vary the speed on each setting.
There are also two SenseTouch settings that can be used with the remote. The first SenseTouch option means that when the remote is held horizontally the vibrations are at a minimum but they increase as the remote is tilted so when held vertically they are at 100%. I really like this as I can easily control the speed without having to feel for buttons.
The second option is the vibrations work when you shake the remote. Both of these can be switched on by pressing the middle button and scrolling through the patterns.
The remote also mimics the actions of the Ida itself so can also be used as a vibrator but if a vibrating remotes not for you this can be switched of by holding the middle button down for a few seconds and it will flash instead.

I tried this out by myself first of all. The shaft is really flexible making it easy to insert and I was pleased to find how comfortably the vibrator sits. The large clitoral stimulator means that even if the toy shifts a bit when you move, the vibrator is wide enough that it will still be sitting over the clitoris so there is no need to hold it in place. The internal part wasnít quite as I was expecting. You canít actually operate the rotation and the vibration separately, which I would have preferred, and I thought this would be an issue but the rotation isnít as prominent as I was expecting. I can obviously feel it moving inside me but it doesnít press as firmly into my g-spot as Iíd like and as itís not that powerful in this respect your muscles can actually stop the shaft from going round if you clench too much, however thatís not necessarily a bad thing. I noticed when testing this that if it does stop rotating internally this will just cause the clitoral section to rotate instead which actually feels fantastic.

When it came to use with my partner I have to admit I was a little sceptical as to whether everything would fit but with a little lube it was quite easy, although we did have to go very slowly. However with my partner inside me I found the internal part of the toy all but stopped and felt like it was rubbing in one very small area rather than really stimulating my g spot.
I was worried that this would be painful for my partner, especially with the rotation, but he said that although he could feel it in there it wasnít uncomfortable in any way and what was most enjoyable for him were the vibrations from the clitoral part.

What was great for me was the vibrator. Finding a toy for use during sex thatís genuinely hands free isnít that easy.
This has the nice, deep, rumbly vibrations of all Lelo toys, it covers a good area so even if you move about, the toy doesnít and unlike a cock ring itís not dependant on body contact. Having my partner inside me placed extra pressure on the vibrator which you just donít get during solo use and the remote meant we werenít fiddling around with little buttons on the toy itself.
Itís also completely waterproof so thereís no reason why you canít try it out in the bath.

Over all a bit of a mixed bag but I do believe that this is a toy that takes a few goes to find out what works best for you and can be great when you find it.

Lelo Billy

Lelo Billy Review September 2013: Jessie:

The Billy is Leloís vibrating prostate massager. It comes packaged in Lelos signature box along with the warranty card, instruction manual, charger and satin storage bag although I tend to keep it stored in the box.

The main part of the toy is made of smooth, body safe silicone so with a bit of water based lube itís really easy to use. The widest insertable part is 3.5Ē in circumference and the full length of the toy is 6.75Ē with 4Ē of insertable length where there is a flared base to stop it travelling any further. It is also gently angled making it great for prostate stimulation.

I found it takes about 1.5 hours to charge initially and is controlled by arrows and + - on a raised button. The + - controls the speed and the arrows control the 5 patterns which are constant vibration, 3 pulse settings and a wave setting. The buttons are easy to feel when in use and actually light up whenever itís pressed although I did find that sometimes this needed to be pressed quite firmly to get the patterns to change. It is this button that also lights up while charging and flashes red as a warning that the battery is low (although as with a lot of rechargeable toys this is easily missed so best to keep it charged).

The Billy also has Leloís travel lock feature which can be turned on by pressing the control button until it flashes once and do the same to unlock.

Although the Billy is NOT waterproof it is splash proof so cleaning is easy with antibacterial soap or toy cleaner so long as you take care to avoid the charging port which is covered by a silicone tab.

This was my partnerís first toy of this kind and I think he was actually expecting it to be a little bigger so I really think if youíre new to this kind of toy itís a great start. It is worth remembering if you prefer bigger toys that this is mainly for prostate play so it wonít give the Ďfullí feeling you get from some bigger toys and itís also not meant for use as a butt plug so itís unlikely to stay put without keeping one hand on it. However the moderate size doesnít stop the Billy from packing a punch, this toy really does its job.

The vibrations are nice and rumbly and can be increased very gradually to build intensity rather than having to jump up to a much higher setting so stimulation to the prostate can be slow to build. The width and angle of the Billy also mean that the vibrations are focussed on the prostate. And while the vibrations are good and strong on the highest setting they start of very gently so it has a very good range and it is also by far the quietest vibrator we own.

My partner has used this alone but I think he ultimately prefers (and possibly finds it easier) when we use it together as he does enjoy other stimulation at the same time and the quality of the vibrations from the Billy mean that itís great just used on his perineum and testicles. I really enjoyed using this with him and could actually feel the vibrations even when it was inside him.

So far I think this toyís been a great success for us and would highly recommend it, in fact the only real problem has been that I forgot to charge it up the other day, no fun if the power runs out half way though!

Lelo Smart Wand Large

Lelo Smart Wand Large Review August 2013: Jessie:

As expected with Lelo products the packaging with this was fantastic. Along with the instruction manual, warranty card and charger the wand also included a Lelo Insignia brooch and a neoprene storage pouch.
The wand itself looks amazing. Itís made of FDA approved silicone with a metal look gloss plastic strip on the inner part of the handle. The silicone is completely seamless and there are no ridges around the head as there are on some other wands so itís very easy to clean. Although like most silicone it does attract a little dust itís nowhere near as bad for this as my other silicone toys. It is 12Ē in length and the head is 7.5Ē in circumference and 2.5Ē long.
There is a slight curve to this wand which makes the shape of it ideal for reaching your back if youíre using it on your own.
Before using it will need to be charged for two hours (the charger that comes with it is of a higher voltage than the usual chargers and must only be used with the large wand) and this will give you two hours of play time.
The buttons are encased in the silicone and lie flat against the massager, they are also in the shape of the Lelo Insignia logo which is a nice touch.
There are three buttons the + and Ė to control the power on whichever setting youíre using and the middle button which scrolls through the 8 patterns which are:

Constant vibration, Pulse, Medium Pulse, Fast Pulse, Low to high , Wave, Fast wave and Random.

The Smart Wand also has Lelos SenseTouch technology. If you hold down the middle button for 3-5 seconds it will switch over to this mode. This means that if you hold the wand away from yourself it will vibrate at a very low setting but when you touch it to your skin the vibrations will increase.
I did slightly misunderstand this concept when I first read about it. I thought that it was controlled by the act of putting it on your skin and the vibrations would increase the harder you pressed but it is actually heat sensitive so often it will start vibrating just by being near your skin.
I found this took some getting used to but itís actually a really great function as it also helps conserve battery life.

The vibrations are very deep and rumbly even on the lowest settings and you can really feel them penetrating your muscles so although I admit I donít generally use it for my back it does really work as a massager.
There was just one problem I noticed. The vibrations travel up the handle which actually make it shake a bit at lower speeds (it steadies out the more power you use) and it can make your handle tingle after a while.
(I havenít tried the medium sized wand but I understand from other reviews that the vibrations on the medium have a different feel to them.)

For intimate use I have to say itís in a different league to anything else I own so I couldnít really compare it to any of my other toys as it is incredibly powerful. Usually when Iím using any of my other vibrators they get turned up to the highest setting quickly but this needed some building up to, I donít recommend turning up to the highest setting and going straight in there if youíre using this for clitoral stimulation especially not without lube.
Although given the size of the head this obviously doesnít lend itself to pinpoint clitoral stimulation I find that itís so powerful that it actually doesnít matter. The vibrations are so deep that they travel through the whole area anyway. The neck on the wand does flex a little but not too much so you are still able to put a good amount of pressure on without it bending back.
It is completely water proof and has been in the bath with me which actually gave different sensations yet again. It did seem a little strange being able to put it in the water as the charging socket is uncovered but of course being a luxury product there were no problems (just make sure itís dry before charging again).

I have also used it with my partner during foreplay. He also really enjoys the sensations of the wand against his testicles and perineum although Iím still getting used to how much pressure to use when holding it against him. Also during intercourse he actually placed the wand against himself at the base of his penis and I could still feel the vibrations deep inside me.

Before receiving this I would have been undecided as to what wand to get but this really is perfect for me. I think when a toy can make me orgasm within minutes or just give me a massage in the bath Iíve definitely made the right choice.

Lelo Mia 2

Lelo Mia 2 Review July 2013: Jessie:

I bought this as I travel a bit and I wanted a small vibe that wouldnít cause me too much embarrassment going through airport security. Iíd done without before because honestly Iím not a fan of bullets but this was recommended to me and it did look ideal.

As with all Lelo products the packaging is lovely. The inner box containing the toy looks like a gift box with ĎLeloí discreetly embossed on the top so no one would guess what was in there. You also receive a satin storage bag, a sachet of Lelo lubricant, the user manual and your Lelo authenticity card and warranty.

The vibrator itself is approximately 4.5Ē in length and 3Ē in circumference at its widest point. Itís made of non porous skin safe plastic which means no latex or phthalates and itís also waterproof so very easy to clean. Although these plastics can be used with any lubricants the buttons are made of silicone so if you use a silicone lubricant the buttons may become tacky over time so it might be worth sticking to water-based.

To get started just twist of the cap to reveal the usb port for charging. A white light will flash when charging and then stay on when fully charged. A full charge gives you about 90 minutes of play time depending on which setting youíre using.

It uses two buttons (+/-) and starts off with constant vibrations. Holding the + button down gradually increases these rather than pressing once to Ďgo up a notchí which I really like however this means to get on to the pulse settings you have to wait until the vibrations are at their highest and hold the + button down for a few seconds and release for the selection of patterns to come on. You can then scroll through the five different patterns which include pulses and waves, pressing the -button will take you back to the constant vibrations.

The vibrations are quite deep, not buzzy and tickly like some and although personally the pulse settings didnít do much for me thatís true of all toys, I like strong constant vibrations and the Mia really delivered that and I was able to orgasm quickly.

This is a quiet toy, not whisper quiet but itís not going to bother anyone outside your bedroom especially if youíre under the covers.

Another great feature of this is that you can lock the controls by holding down both buttons together until it flashes (you do the same to unlock) so itís not turned on accidently whilst packed away.

I do have a couple of gripes. Changing over to the patterns is a bit to fiddly and because the buttons lie quite flat against the toy they can be difficult to find during use especially if youíre using lube.  However it has become a firm favourite in the toy box and I like to keep it fully charged so itís ready whenever I need it.
