Because the World Needs Another Review on Ella

Ella is still a wonderful toy that should probably be in any respectable toy user's collection. Even if they're like me and don't end up using her that frequently.

Use

In case you haven't already heard, Ella is a small dildo expertly designed for vaginal use, particularly stimulation of the g-spot. Either end of the toy can be used for vaginal penetration, but the blunt bulbous end is what's supposed to make your g-spot happiest. Though results may vary by user depending on those pesky differences in anatomy.

Ella is well suited for any type of user, both those experienced with g-spot play and newcomers. In my experience, there's always a bit of a curve when it comes to learning what works best for your g-spot, so patience and persistence is key for just about any toy.

A wonderful option for a high-end gift or an entrance point into partner play, Ella's small size and sleek appearance make her well suited to those who aren't interested in lots of size and/or have specific aesthetic concerns.

Although Ella is 100% waterproof (and sterilizable), this is NOT a toy for anal use. There is no surefire way to ensure it doesn't slip too far in nor a way to make sure you can get it back out. Please do not assume that the flare intended for g-spot stimulation will be sufficient to stop Ella from disappearing into your great beyond--truly that's a trip to the ER that no one wants to make. Bottom line is that Ella wasn't designed for your butt, so please don't put it there.

Material / Texture

Ella is made out of 100% medical grade silicone, making it 100% sterilizable and waterproof. I got mine in black, and it seems to have a bit of metallic shimmer in the color. Overall the toy is flexible yet firm, allowing it to comfortably adjust to the contours of your body while still packing a punch.

The texture is entirely buttery smooth. Truly, when I first got my Ella, I just wanted to stroke it because it was so smooth. Ella didn't have any taste or smell, as should be the case with 100% medical grade silicone.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The antithesis of a realistic toy, Ella's modern and abstract design is something to behold. Ella is truly a gorgeous toy! Don't be fooled by the sleek exterior, though. At no point is Ella's design fully round, and both ends have points at which a smooth curve turns into a sharper angle. The angles are fairly noticeable, which for me is a good thing because I like how they feel. However, some people may find them uncomfortable or distracting.

On the smaller side, Ella's size was perfect for what I was looking for when I got her. When it comes to penetration toys, I tend to favor toys that are on par with the size of maybe two fingers as opposed to something that rivals the size of my partner's penis. I would like to think that everyone could love Ella's petite frame, but some people are simply going to want more from their g-spot toy. If you're a person who's looking for particular length or girth in your toy, I'd suggest you look elsewhere.

Ella's modern design and small size also makes it a great choice for those who want a travel friendly toy. Small and discreet, Ella is the little black dress of g-spot dildos.

Performance

As most of you will know, Ella is one of the most reviewed and beloved toys on this site. And for good reason. Her design, style, material and size all beg to be utilized towards orgasmic perfection.

Fact of the matter is, however, that you can't please all the people all of the time. It's been said that Ella can bring a girl to orgasm in a few quick flicks of the wrist (techniques may vary). A few users have also said that those curves that bring so much pleasure to others had inflicted great pain to their nether regions. If I were to venture a guess, it would be that for most people, a fling with Ella would be a pleasurable experience, if not totally mind-blowing.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Being made out of 100% medical grade silicone sure does make care and maintenance a joy. Ella can be bathed in a bleach solution or boiled for complete sterilization between uses and/or if you want to share Ella with someone else.

The only real thing to know is that Ella should not be used with silicone lubes. There are some silicone lubes that may be compatible, but it's never been something I've ever been bold enough to try and find out exactly which ones for myself. As with Ella and anal, the general rule of thumb I prefer to use is, "just don't do it." Unless, that is, you're fine with the potential prospect of ruining Ella and needing to purchase a replacement.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

For those not fully familiar with LELO packaging, know this: it's flawless. Truly, LELO is the Apple of sex toys. Whether you like the product or not, the packaging and presentation make just about everyone go "oooooooooh".

Ella is no exception and comes packaged in the LELO standard of a thick, sturdy black cardboard box of storage quality, encased in a thinner standard cardboard packaging box that is white and accented in whatever color your toy is (mine was white and black, as my Ella is black. If you get the rose colored Ella, the box is white and rose). There is a picture of Ella, in representative size, on one side of the box, and the brand name glossily printed on the other side.

Inside the black storage box, Ella sits in a plastic shelf that cradles the toy perfectly in place. Lift up the shelf and you will find multiple packets of warranty and brand information, as well as the charger and a silk storage pouch which you can use instead of the black box if you so choose.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage
    • Very informative

Experience

So here's where it gets complicated. Ella is right for me in so many ways, it's not even funny. There's just one problem: I don't really care for g-spot play all that much. I know what it feels like, I'm capable of having a g-spot orgasm, I can do it with Ella. I just don't like doing it.

And for that reason Ella has been something of a lackluster toy for me, as her best suited purpose is not my favorite ballgame and I really can't speak that much to that aspect of her use. When I use Ella, it tends to simply be as a penetrative compliment to a vibrator, just something to have in there filling me a little while my clit really gets it.

It's a little frustrating, as I love Ella to death. The look and feel of the toy just plain turn me on. I wish I could use Ella more, but my typical sex play just doesn't require its use all that often.
Follow-up commentary
I haven't touched Ella since I wrote my original review for her. What she has to offer still just doesn't work for my body. Every time I select one of my other toys out from the drawer Ella shares, I look at her beautiful storage box and think longingly of her lovely silhouette and the smoothness of her silicone. Alas, Ella and I were not meant to be. But maybe with you, she will be.
