Lelo has been on a roll, putting out new versions of their already popular, super high quality vibrators. Read on if you want the latest on some of the best vibes on the market.
Well, it is true, their were free Ina's to be had. Yours truly got one as a result of following a particular company on Twitter. Yep, free luxury vibrator sent to me in a plain box. No extra packing material, no fancy gift wrap, not so much as a note of celebration. I am not complaining. Took my Ina-2 home, plugged her in and charged her up. Ina-2 and I, we're practically best friends now.
The newly flexible clitoral stem of the Ina-2 was a welcome change. By moving the Ina-2 from side to side, or by changing the angle of the vibe overall, I could control the pressure of the stem. The familiar shape of the smooth G-Spot "bulb" was intense, yet very comfortable.
Those two motors, wrapped in 100% silicone, won me over VERY quickly. The multiple speeds and modes (there is one that sort of ROLLS along, some pulse variations, and one that ECHOES between the clit stem and the G-Spot motor) kept me on my toes, then quietly curled them. First I was a winner, then I was WINNING.
As for the Gigi-2, well, after experiencing the new and delightfully improved Ina-2, let's just say I was more than a little curious. So, I added it to my next shipment of toys and goodies. Just like the Ina-2, the new Gigi-2 is 100% waterproof, making it super easy to clean, bathtub and shower friendly.
Unlike the Ina-2, which surprised me with its rumbley vibration, Gigi-2 felt only slightly more powerful than its original.
On the plus side, Gigi-2 is quieter, smaller, and more subtle than the Ina-2.
The high quality silicone surrounding Lelo vibes, make them fully hypoallergenic and velvety smooth. So, both of these new vibes are perfect in that respect. Both are rechargeable, and have locking modes to keep them storage and travel friendly.
The controls of the Ina-2 and Gigi-2 are fairly ergonomic. But, just as with the originals, I recommend you become familiar with the circular controls before you put these vibes to serious use.
Originally pitched as a G-Spot vibe, Gigi-2 performs even more effectively as a clitoral vibe. The smooth, softly angled tip lays nicely over the clitoris, without being too agressive. The tip is broader than most small clit vibes, covering more surface, to reach more nerve endings.
As a G-Spotter, I (like many other reviewers) wish the Gigi-2 was just a little longer, for better control of both pressure and angle internally. If you enjoy thrusting action in a G-Spot toy, the Gigi-2 may fall short for you.
If you were already a fan of the Gigi, or if you are looking for a small-scale vibrator of high quality, the Gigi-2 is a great choice.
If you want a powerhouse of rumbley sensation, with both internal and external stimulation, then spend the extra 30 or so dollars and get the Ina-2.
I was beginnning to dislike this company...actually that is putting it mildly. Lelo has been going through some growing pains; expanding their lines, creating new lines, and raising wholesale prices as a result. Business owners don't like it when you mess with their profit margins. BUT, I have to admit something. The Ina2 and Gigi2 are worth the extra dollars.
A funny thing happened on my way to a very intense orgasm. I fell in love with a brand. A brand that I had sworn off. Sworn off for being too expensive (or so I thought), too highbrow (the sales rep wore a suit, and spoke of SEX TOYS as if they were works of modern art), and too zealous in its quest for design driven, euro-snob perfection.
I don't even know how it happened exactly, but I must have let my guard down after reading one too many 5 star reviews of the JIMMYJANE FORM 2. Before I knew what hit me, the "Brown Truck" was delivering a shipment of JIMMYJANE, and I was just done for.
I chose the FORM 2 in slate...a deep charcoal gray that would stand out from the rest of my toy collection at home. I only ordered the one piece, because deep down I was hoping the FORM 2 would not live up to its hype. Investing in a new toy line for Diva can be expensive, and even some "Best Sellers" can flop if the locals remain unimpressed.
I tried to remain calm as I unsealed the box...sensation in stereo, FORM 2...waterproof...rechargeable vibrator. Well, I definitely liked the sound of that. Dual Motors, Powerful Flexible Vibrating Ears, High Performance Lithium Battery, Simple Intuitive Controls, and Digital Vibration Modes. This is like dirty talk for a sex shop owner. As the buyer for Diva, I am always in search of the next fabulous, mind blowing, toe curling sex toy. So, stand and deliver JIMMYJANE. 8 hours later (the recommended first charging time) the little bugger was fully charged and ready to take home for a test run.
I "played" with my FORM 2 before I played with my FORM 2, to insure that I was completely at ease and familiar with its buttons, settings, and modes. I found the controls fairly intuitive (as stated on the box). The universal + button for ON and UP, and the common - button for DOWN and OFF. Closer towards the base of the toy a ~ button takes you through all of the FORM 2 settings: a total of 5 speeds, and 4 vibration patterns. As I messed around with the controls, I couldn't help but be impressed by the power of this smaller than expected vibe. Just large enough to cup in the palm of my hand...the ears each throbbed, waved, pulsed and escalated as I scrolled through the modes.
"What's that you say Dear? You have to make a run to the hardware store? Uh yeahhhh, well I need to take a quick shower...see you in a little while..." My mind was still on those throbbing modes. Waterproof! Do I need to type that again? WATERPROOF! The FORM 2 is 100% submersible...making it easy to wash, shower and tub friendly. Just what every gal needs when her husband runs errands.
If I were to go into too many details about that shower scene, I would have to tag this Blog post ADULT, and at the very least move out of town...and I kind of like Ventura, after all. I'll just sum it up by saying AMAZING...kind of like those Herbal Essence commercials, only in "silent scream mode" AND WAY BETTER.
Later that day, the aforementioned Hubby and I shared an even more momentous, breathless, heart pounding, and dare I say it, "toe curling" event, which may just go down as the best vibrator experience of my life. My Hubby dubbed the FORM 2 a winner..."that thing is like a rocket! You are keeping it, right? I mean you should have seen the look on your face!"
Yes, sweetie it is a keeper...and I am kind of glad I couldn't see the look on my face. Kind of like ugly crying...just without the tears.
AND, if my experience with the FORM 2 is any indication of how many of these lovelies I can sell, it should become a BEST SELLER in record time.
THE PROS: FORM 2 is made from"Medical Grade" Silicone that is completely hypoallergenic, easy to clean, and smooth to the touch. This vibe is also 100% Waterproof, and powerful as all get out. The multi-speed and mult-ifunction controls are easy and intuitive, and the unique minimalist design surrounds the clitoris with intense, rumbly vibrations. FORM 2 recharges in its own "Ikea-esque" base, which is very easy to use. The FORM 2 is excellent as a solo toy, and even more fun with a partner, as it is small enough to use as additional stimulation during good old P in V sex, oral sex, and foreplay of all kinds. The dual motors have a distinct advantage when it comes to stimulating the clitoral "legs", those nerve endings running away from the head of the clitoris; some reviewers even mentioned experiencing a unique style of orgasm as a result. The FORM 2 is also great for women that find direct clit stimulation overwhelming...simply rest the FORM 2 on the mons, slowly move the vibe downward toward the clitoris until you find just the right sweet spot, and allow the "ears" to work their magic.
THE CONS: The FORM 2 is a little on the noisy side. Those powerful vibrations can come with a cost. Some reviewers have had issues with the dual motors "transferring" the vibrations away from the tip of the ears, as the FORM 2 balances itself...kind of like a washing machine that gets noisy as a load of clothes becomes unevenly distributed. Try as I might, I could not re-enact this phenomenon, but I did notice an increase in noise level as I pushed the FORM 2 up to full blast. Frankly, I was way too busy enjoying the sensations the toy delivered to care.
FORM 2 by JIMMYJANE
This odd looking vibrator would seem like an unlikely customer favorite, but indeed it is a Diva Best Seller! I have always thought it was shaped rather like the "Grim Reaper" in silhouette. I guess this is appropriate when considering the French term for orgasm, la petite mort, or "little death". In its original color, a rather pearly white, it is even more ghost like in appearance.
The Blue Venus is a gyrating vibrator, aka "Hummer" that uses an off center motor to create a humming, sometimes "thudding" vibration that is very different from typical high pitched, fuzzy or buzzing vibes. I have had more than one customer compare this toys highest setting to the lowest setting of their beloved (POWERFUL) Hitachi Wand...which, if you are familiar, is an electric plug in model famous for its intense, sometimes teeth-chattering vibrations. So, if you prefer deep, rumbley vibrations and a firm vibe, the Blue Venus may be for you.
One side of the Hummer has a scoop shape, designed to cup and surround the clitoris. I usually suggest applying a few drops of a good lubricant before using the Hummer as an initial "buffer". Start the vibe at a slower speed, gradually increasing the intensity as you become comfortably aroused. You can simply use the Hummer for clitoral stimulation...but frankly, that would be a waste of this toys full pleasure potential! Once you find yourself well on your way, turn the toy and insert vaginally so that the "nub" opposite the scoop is facing up against your G Spot area. The intensity of vibration and pressure you exert is all up to you...do what is comfortable, but keep in mind that the G Spot does require more, when it comes to pressure and vibration than the clitoris does. Because this style of vibrator is firm, (hard plastic) and the motor is strong, it can successfully stimulate your G Spot and lead to a G Spot or vaginal orgasm. Using a firm stroking motion also helps.
Follow up from customers here at Diva on this vibe has been tremendous. I have had more than one customer pick up a Hummer as a gift for a friend, after trying it out for themselves...and one very memorable customer purchased a "back up" Hummer to insure that when her original "died", she would have an immediate replacement! This surprisingly effective vibrator just might have you speaking French...
