While there’s always something cute and lovable about small vibrators, the LELO Smart Wand has given me a new appreciation for large vibrators. Large things are sexy, and there’s something deeply satisfying about holding this foot-long luxury vibe and thinking, “Yup…ALL of this is for my tiny clit.” It’s big, it’s weighty, and it’s hard to resist the temptation to brandish it like a club.
The Admiral. It’s a great name. Can you hear the seagulls? The waves lapping against the ship’s hull? The Admiral shouting orders to his crew of sweaty sailors? I love the idea of naming a dildo after a rank in the navy. It immediately sparks my imagination….
If you haven’t noticed, LELO Ella is beautiful, and it is one of the first toys I ever considered sexy in itself. Part of this comes from the design. Ella is classified as a dual-ended dildo. While the straight end is shaped for thrusting and warming up, the other end is designed specifically for the g-spot. It features a flattened tip and a (slightly bendable) hooked neck to curl around and come directly in contact with the g-spot. Ella isn’t motorized, but LELO does carry a vibrating version of Ella called Gigi. I was tempted to buy Gigi instead of Ella, but I eventually decided with (the decidedly less expensive) Ella so I could see if I even enjoy this curved g-spot stimulation.
This toy grabbed my eye by its simple design. It offers no frills. It’s simply a dark grey ring with a bullet vibrator. I also like that it is both silicone and waterproof. I tried submerging it in water several times to test this out and it still works.
I never use this toy. I find it buzzy. My clit gets numb. G-spot wise, it feels nice, but good G-spot stimulation doesn’t need to cost $150. A lot of bloggers LOVE this toy though. Some don’t like it, but many are crazy about it. So I definitely recommend that you check out some of the other reviews out there. But for me, it’s merely a buzzy disappointment.
The Comet II is pretty. Very pretty. If you like your toys to have a certain vibrancy and life, I suggest the robin blue. The body of the Comet II is made from a silky silicone. It’s not the sticky, lint-magnet silicone you find in some products. It’s the soft, velvety, run-your-cheeks-all-over-it silicone. The handle is made from a shiny ABS plastic. The Comet’s core is also made from ABS, which helps to keep the overall weight down (which is heaven on your wrists come play time).
When I first opened up Mark, it took me a while to stop squeezing it with my hand. It’s seriously fun to squeeze. Once I got used to this new-found squishy funtime, I got around to inserting it. Thanks to its super smooth surface, it slid in without a hitch with water-based lube. There was no pulling or catching on skin to speak of. Best of all, it feels really realistic. Its head, though pronounced, didn’t scrape up painfully against my g-spot or hurt it in any way. Mark doesn’t hurt.
