Vibrator Review 2 – Lelo INA 2

INA 2 Lelo

Guess what?  I got another sex toy to review from The Toy Closet.  I was excited to do my homework, but I had to get ready to go to a show.  One thing that was especially interesting about this toy is that it’s ReChArGeAbLe!  😀  I got home from the show.  I opened the package and looked at the box.  I thought it was so pretty, so, so pretty.  And it was my favorite color, purple.  Yep, I was biased from the start!  What I did not do was plug it in to charge before I left for the show.  Which was fine because I was tired and wanted to get to bed anyway *side eye*…  *Sigh*.  I plugged it in.

While it was charging, I checked out what was in the box.  A carrying case, lube (glycerine & paraben free), a warranty and an instruction manual were in the box.  A charger was, of course, in there as well.  I promise, I have never before thought about registering a toy.  Now I have.  There was a product registration card.  I also, don’t typically use toys with penetration.  I had to wait until the following night before I  had time to test it out.

For the sake of research, I pushed through, so to speak.  I was curious about that shape.   There are 8 vibration settings as well as intensity control.  Is this the “luxury vehicle” of sex toys?  I can say that whether you do use penetration or not, it is a fun toy to have.  It’s like a sex toy, video game controller and you are in the command center.  You know, in a sexy time kind of way.  Yes, it is fully water proof as well.  Perhaps, one of you could test it out in water and let me know how it was?  In the bath, perhaps?  I always think that fully water proof  is a great option, especially if you take showers with your partner.  I don’t need details: a yay or nay will do!!!

The battery life seems to be excellent.  I haven’t charged it for days and have been able to use, I mean, test it out a time or two or three or…  Thumbs up to the Lelo.

Vibrator Review

English: The glowing red neon sign spells out ...

I’ve been living in NY for quite some time now.  This is my first vibrator review.  Anytime I wanted to get a new sex toy I’d just dip into one of the many sex shops open all hours of the day and night.  At an erotic poetry event that I had performed in recently I met Janine.  I mentioned to her that I was doing a show called Shades of Burlesque and Shades & Friends.  I also half jokingly mentioned that I’d love to review products for quality assurance purposes only, of course.  She will be selling her goodies at both shows AND I got a product to test out.  Ya know, because I care about the people that deeply 😉

This is the first time I’ve had one delivered to my door via mail.  It was really nice to have a discretely packaged toy handed over to me.  I loved having that secret from the delivery person.  The toy I got was called the Heavenly Heart.  It is Water Proof people!  Fun, fun, fun!!!  I thought the heart design was really nice.  Let’s be honest, not everyone wants a phallic looking toy.  The ten speed/pulse pattern options are a definite win in my book.  Sometimes, a lady likes to meander towards the road to the big O for a bigger, more intense pay off so to speak :-D.  It takes a double A battery which is easily found everywhere.  I’ve had vibes with watch batteries and that it not as convenient to replace quickly.  Ever had that awkward moment when the battery dies mid session?  No?  Only me.  Fine.  I hear tell there are even  rechargeable vibes out there.  Sounds like a great idea, right?

The only cons I can come up with is that the battery is not included.  I opened the box ready to do my *ahem* work and alas no starter battery was in there.  Luckily,  I had an extra double A battery on hand or I would have had to raid a remote control.  The other con is that I thought that some of the pulse patterns could use a bit more power.  However, that is a personal preference, isn’t it?  It may be the perfect intensity for others.

Go check out the Toy Closet to find the Heavenly Heart vibe and more!
