Oh Ella, the things you do for me... {Review}  


There are certain things that you really don't know what you are missing out on when you don't have them. How could you know? It's nice to base your purchases off reviews, but sometimes even the reviews don't totally convince us if we already think that we won't like something. I'm sure many of you have already read your share of rave reviews on toys from the Lelo line up. Some of you probably already own one, but if you do, you already know what the others are missing out on.

I am looking for those of you who have perhaps decided against purchasing a new Lelo toy, even after reading the positive reviews. Maybe you based your choice off the size or the shape, thinking that because it wasn't like what you currently own that you wouldn't enjoy it. For me that deciding factor was the firmness. I like squishy toys that can bend and conform to my body shape, and Ella's silicone is anything but squishy. I already knew that since I had seen it mentioned multiple times in reviews, but when she arrived I was in for a surprise.

Lelo Ella comes packaged in a sleeve like cardboard box, inside of which you will find a gorgeous black box which could easily pass as something that contains jewelery on your shelf. Protected under a molded sheet of plastic and nestled into another Ella lays safely inside, waiting to come out to play. You will also find a perfectly sized satin bag in the box, as well as directions on how to use your new dildo. I thought that was hilarious, yet considerate, although I don't know how many people shop around for a Dildo if they don't know what they are supposed to do with it.

Now, I'm going to tell you a little secret. As soon as I took my Rose colored Ella out of that gorgeous box and held her in my hand I immediately knew I was going to love her. So much so that before I even had a chance to play with her I ordered two more Lelo toys because with a silky soft texture like this, I knew there was no way they could let me down. I could happily stroke her against my skin all day, even the satin bag can't compete with how smooth her silicone feels.

Now on to her flexibility, and lack of it. If I didn't already know she was made out of 100% non-porous, Hypoallergenic, Phthalate & latex free silicone I may not have believed it. She is hard like plastic with no give at all when you squeeze her, though her contoured neck does flex and spring back when you apply pressure to it. She is 7.5" and 1.5" wide at her widest point.

Just thinking about how the smooth silicone was going to feel on my sensitive bits left me anxious to try her out as soon as I could. I guess you could say I have been in something of a rut and haven't been making the time to play with my toys as much as I normally do but having Ella in my hand changed all of that. Yes, I snuck off and played with her that day, and again the next day, and again the next. She definitely isn't one to patiently wait in the "to review" pile.

Her flattened G-Spot end is perfectly shaped to deliver intense G-Spot stimulation, while her smooth and seamless surface glides in and out with ease. Her gentle curves ensure nothing but comfort and pleasure to be had, no matter which end you use. Thats right, Ella is classified as dual ended, as her other end can be used as a traditional dildo.

Silicone is very easy to clean with some mild soap or toy cleaner & water. If you need to sterilize it between partners it can be bleached, boiled, or ran through the dishwasher without detergent. What I found exceptionally nice about Ella's silicone is that it is not a lint magnet like many other toys that I own. I have 5 pets in my house so drying a toy off with an actual towel after cleaning is something I tend to avoid but with Ella I was able to use the towel without finding my toy looking like a balding cat when I'm finished.

I suppose that's enough babble from me, but I'm curious...which toy or brand have you put off trying, despite having read multiple positive reviews? What's holding you back from trying something new?

    I have been looking at this one for awhile (not that I can afford it right now on a student's budget!) because of the interesting shape. I was concerned that maybe it would hook in certain places, but if it's as silky smooth as you say it is, I guess I shouldn't worry about that!

    Also, YAY for Canadian sites! :D

    The pubic bone hook was one thing that crossed my mind on getting this one too, I didn't have any problems with that but I did get this strange and unexplainable suction effect when putting it in too deep a couple of times. Like my vag liked it so much it wouldn't let go!

    Will be posting a $50 giveaway this week and Ella is only $42 so keep an eye out!

    It is one of those things, that you just do not know what to try and where to get it...I have been branching out lately so I will have to keep this in mind - thanks for the review. katie

    I've been waiting to try a Tantus plug, mostly because I've seen at least one review for every one of their products where someone didn't like the shape and thought it wasn't good for beginners. Gah! I need somewhere to start, but I want something that's easy to clean and won't harness bacteria :(

    I'm considering buying the new neon Ryder in orange, but I'm worried I won't like it...

    Pretty much anything made of silicone is your best bet. The only Tantus plug I have tried so far is the large Tantus Flirt, which I did get as a beginner but found it to be too large. I also have Ripple, but haven't tried it yet. I want to get the B Bomb soon, but if you want me suggestion on a great plug for beginners I would go with the Pop Plug. I'll be posting my review on it in the next few days, Pink Cherry only has it in medium but if you look around a few other shops have all three sizes (Small, Med., Large)

    Another good one (imo) for beginners is the Anal Explorers by Sinclair Institute. These are especially good for the true beginner, but will not stay in as a plug since you need to keep your finger in the hole.
