Lelo Gigi 2

Lelo is one of the best known “luxury” toy companies on the market, and in fact, the original Gigi vibrator was the first ever high end and re-chargeable vibrator I owned, almost eight years ago. Why? Because its design it brilliant. You can use it for internal stimulation, including almost perfectly for G-spot stimulation in most bodies that have G-spots (although not all, because everyone’s body is different and there is no one magical anything that will perfectly satisfy everyone sexually in the same way, period), or for external stimulation of the nipple, clitoris, penile shaft, scrotum; you name it. It’s made of 100% medical grade silicone, meaning that you can sterilize it by wiping it down with a 10% bleach solution, letting it dry, and then washing it off. Once you’ve sterilized it, you can share it with friends, lovers, etc without fear of transmitting STIs or bacterial infections. Plus, you just recharge it as needed, so you never need to worry about whether you have enough of the right size batteries with you.

All of these things made the original Lelo Gigi truly wonderful, so when they came out with a Lelo Gigi 2, I was excited to be one of the first to try it out. One of the benefits of the new model it that is is 100% waterproof, so you can take this delightful pleasure object with you into the shower, the hot tub, etc, to make sure you don’t miss a thing. Another is a slightly softer silicone, though to be honest, I had no issues with the silicone on the original Gigi. Now, supposedly, it is also 100% more powerful, but we didn’t find that; it seems to be perhaps slightly more powerful than the original, but it isn’t close to the Hitachi or the Mystic Wand. It really just depends on what your needs are; not everyone wants a weapons grade sex toy!

Make sure you get a bottle of good quality, water based lube to go with this, as silicone lube and silicone toys do not mix. I love that the Lelo sex toys all come with their own little adorable storage bags; make sure to make use of them to keep your beautiful new toy from sticking to any of your other amazing vibrators or dildos…that would be a very very very sad day.

Mona 2

 

It’s time for another toy review…finally. I know it’s been a while, as I’ve been focusing more on book reviews.

Which toy is worth breaking the review hiatus? Well, not shockingly, it’s one from Lelo, one of my favorite sex toy manufacturers.  In fact, it is the fancy new and updated version of the Mona vibrator. It’s the Lelo Mona 2!

I really love Lelo because you know they are going to give you a quality toy made of good quality plastic (for the handle) and medical grade silicone for the vibrator itself. Medical grade silicone is hyopallergetic, body safe, phthalate free, and sterilizable (wipe it down with a 10% bleach solution, let it sit, and them rinse it off to sterilize it before sharing!). Moreover, it’s a more sustainable toy, because it’s rechargeable. Not only will you not have to deal with buying batteries (and perhaps running out at the exact wrong time), but it is more eco friendly to use this type of toy.

As compared to some of their older toys (my demo Lelo Gigi for workshops is circa 2007), I love the handle and the buttons on the new one. They are smoother, easier to use during sex (especially if your hands are all kinds of lube-y), and look cleaner as well.

Like most of the Lelo line, this toy packs power, and has a variety of power levels, as well as types of settings. Whether you are newer to toys, or want something that has more of a hardcore power level, this toy has all of the option. Plus, this one, like the Gigi, is designed specifically for G-spot stimulation. However, while the Gigi is great for beginners, this one is a little bigger, a little thicker, and really felt more fulfilling than the Gigi does, in that I like having a bit more girth than I used to when I got my own Gigi. Having the option to use it externally (clitorally, as well as on a scrotum, nipples, etc) or internally means that this is a toy for all types of wants and needs.

While personally not a fan of the pink color (excuse me, Cerise), I can highly recommend this toy to anyone looking for a vibe that is easy to use, made of quality materially, and can be used either externally or internally. Lelo has a history of making fabulous feeling, high quality toys, and the Mona 2 is certainly no exception.
