Meet the Lelo Ella aka “Super Dildo”

Last week I was sitting at home doing some writing when the doorbell rang. I opened the door to a UPS guy wearing questionably short, shorts and reflective aviator sunglasses.

“Are you Simone?”

“Yes, that’s me”

“I have big package here for you”

MY LELO ELLA FROM EDEN FANTASYS HAD ARRIVED! I thanked him for the delivery and excitedly went back inside my apartment.

(My boyfriend’s comment later that day: “You’re the only person I know whose life actually sounds like the opening scene of a porno“)

I was really excited to review the Lelo Ella because when it comes to function and beautiful design, Lelo sex toys really are the creme de la creme. Finding out you get to review one for free is kind of like someone telling you “Hey, we have this Rolls Royce we want you to test drive and don’t worry about ever returning it…ever

The Lelo Ella is double ended luxury dildo designed to help stimulate the hard to reach G-Spot area. It’s made of 100% medical grade silicone (which means it’s completely safe for your lady parts…. or, man parts!) and it has a soft, smooth, velvety texture. This toy does not vibrate. Instead, it has two different ends which are made to stimulate different pressure points. The squared off end is designed specifically to reach your G-Spot, whereas the longer rounded end is for multipurpose stimulation. Because this toy is made of silicone, remember to always use a non-silicone water-based lubricant so as to not damage the texture of the toy. If you are looking for a great water based lube for sensitive lady parts, this one is totally awesome.

Like all Lelo toys, the luxury experience begins with the packaging. Ella is packaged in a minimalist black box and comes with a satin carrying pouch – both of which are elegant storage options. Considering most Lelo toys are in the $100+ range, the Ella which is priced at $39.99 provides the Lelo experience without breaking the bank.

So, I get that it’s pretty…what exactly do you do with it? One of the nice things about the Lelo Ella is that its incredibly versatile. It’s a great toy for solo play or for couples. It’s really up to you how you want to use it. It can be used on its own, in combination with a small clitoral vibe or while your partner goes down on you during foreplay. (FYI. If you can find someone who’s a good multi-tasker, I highly recommend option C).

At first I was a little skeptical about the Lelo Ella because I’ve never used a toy that doesn’t vibrate but I was very pleasantly surprised. This toy does an excellent job of stimulating the G-Spot. The squared off end of the toy took a bit more getting used to but I found both ends provided different but equal pleasurable results. Unlike the Candy Cane vibrator, the Ella is way easier to insert and maneuver. It’s not too big, its not too small, its just right.

I would recommend the Lelo Ella to anyone who is looking to discover the elusive G-Spot (its real! It exists! I promise!) You might have to play around with this toy a bit to figure out which end works best for you but once you figure it out..all I can say is “WOW”. I think one of the other Eden Fantasys reviewers said it best when describing this toy: “Hurricane Ella will likely result in earthquakes and tsunamis all across the southern seaboard” Because of the “extreme pleasurable weather conditions” associated with Ella, you might not want to use this little purple guy on your freshly washed sheets (I’m just saying)

Just as a heads up – if you are going to be experimenting with both ends, especially if you are using lube with this toy, I would suggest picking one end first and then switching only once you have had a chance to wash the toy off. Immediately switching from one end to the other is kind of like trying to play catch with a peeled banana that’s been dipped in cooking oil. It’s slippery. Very slippery.

Lastly, one more thing I love about this toy is its discreet design. Ella is great for people who don’t want a toy that looks like a giant purple penis. To quote the boyfriend:

“I’m not intimidated by this. It’s more like a giant, enhanced pleasure finger

Well put.

Because it doesn’t vibrate, Ella is the perfect toy for traveling. You could stash this little guy in your carry-on luggage and never have to worry about any embarrassing moments in the security line-up like, having to explain why your luggage is vibrating. In fact, the Ella is so neutral looking, some people might not even think its a sex toy at all.

However, just in case you encounter a really nosy TSA agent who is dead set on ransacking through your luggage, before I played with this toy I came up with a few helpful tips on how to explain away your Lelo Ella.

“It’s not a Dildo….It’s….”

“Part of a balanced diet”

“Great for preventing writers cramp”

The latest pretentious looking phone: “Oh my god, I can’t believe he said that!”
“I was like NO WAY and he was like WAY

or, my favorite: ” a post-modern shoe horn”

Did I mention the Lelo Ella is also dishwasher safe? Because it is. It’s also boilable, bleachable and it will make you a sandwich after you’re finished with it. I may be kidding about the last one however, I am convinced this toy has superpowers.

It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s a Super Dildo.
Final destination: Simone’s toy drawer.What do you guys think? What are you interested in seeing reviewed next?

As an FYI, your suggestions really do matter. Ella was sent to me because Teacher Girl commented that she was interested in knowing more about Lelo toys. So, if there is something you are interested in seeing reviewed on Skinny Dip, please comment or drop me a line!

Also, if you have any questions that you are not comfortable talking about in the comments section (regarding this post or a previous one), please email me! I’d be happy to chat & answer any questions you may have.
