Princess Ella

Through this toy I've had good experiences with g-spot stimulation at my own pace. I haven't had a g-spot orgasm with Ella...yet. But you know what, even that is not a reason to pass up this dildo. It's about the journey, after all. This toy feels great regardless, so if you're new like me, go at your own pace. It's definitely worth the investment for quality design, presentation and pleasure.

Use

This toy is, in short, a double ended dildo. Well suited for beginners and seasoned pros alike, I would recommend this toy to anyone with a vagina interested in penetrative play. It is easily a single handed dildo, making it easy to incorporate in solo or couples play. The material is a 100% body safe, non-porous hard (yet silky) silicone.

Material / Texture

This Toy. It Feels SO SEXY. There is absolutely nothing realistic about the white Ella I recently purchased, zero, nada. But something about the perfectly balanced, organic nature of Ella's form, coupled with its smooth surface - it gives me chills. You will intuitively feel the urge to fuck this toy. The Ella is fairly hard, but because its girth is rather small, I would still recommend it for beginners.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

As a designer, it is my belief that the most functional designs, when done 100% true to their objective, result in the highest level of aesthetic beauty. The Ella is a perfect example of this fact. Ella is designed to be compatible with a female body, and so the toy itself feels undoubtedly feminine and graceful.

The length of this toy is 7" total, with an insertable length of 5" on either end of the dildo. On the g-spotting side I tend to not take advantage of the full 5" for the most effective stimulation, however. This toy has a subtle, yet effective curve throughout the shaft that makes it easy to grip from either end. The dildo end is thick and seamless with two ridges that run down the tapered shaft ending at a soft point. The g-spotting side is considerably narrower and more flexible, but ends in a curved, stiff "head" that is just under the maximum width of the opposing end. This head has a flat surface that tilts upward, often seen on toys meant for g-spot stimulation (much like the Lelo GiGi, but with a narrower neck), that is about the size of an oblong silver dollar. (or maybe a kumquat? a cherry tomato??)
    • Discreet look/design
    • Ergonomic
    • Whimsical / artistic

Performance

First off, I have not put this toy in my butt, and I don't recommend it because that is not what this toy is for due to the lack of a flared base. This toy can do double-time already, just buy a butt toy. LEAVE ELLA ALONE.

The Dildo End: was a little pointy, yes and I would argue it feels much larger than the g-spotting end. I used this end to warm up and while this isn't nearly the largest piece of equipment I've had in me, it felt quite filling, as if it were really taking the shape of my vagina. I liked it, but wasn't crazy about it, as I found it a little bit pointy for hard thrusting. (I have a sensitive cervix due to my IUD, this may not bother other people.)

The G-spot End: I'll admit, I was a little intimidated by the g-spot end at first. I'd never put anything so un-dick like up in there and I was sort of confused as to how that would work. It took a little tipping and adjusting, but once it was in, it was in. My very own vagina did most of the work for me on that front, and I was surprised how quickly and easily I took it in without much effort after initial insertion. AND THEN, with the help of some porn and my other hand, I was good to go; hesitantly thrusting at first, but once I really started to go for it, that's when it started to feel GOOD, like REALLY GOOD. And different! Unexpected cries of pleasure! Overall, a great sensation and much more pleasurable than the other end.

The only thing I've had a bit of trouble with is removing the g-spot end post-play. I haven't quite gotten the angles right yet and removing the 'head' of the dildo can be a bit pinchy, but that doesn't keep me from reaching for it whenever I'm in the mood.
    • Lots of variety in function

Care and Maintenance

The Ella couldn't be easier to care for. I rinse it with warm water after use and store it in the box. Every once in awhile when I'm feeling neurotic I'll use soap. Because this toy has no batteries or motors, you can pop it in the dishwasher, boil it, or use a 10% bleach solution to sterilize. This is a silicone toy, so I only use water based lubricant because I wouldn't dare risk ruining the silky texture.

The WHITE Ella specifically has held up great, so far. I was hesitant at first to purchase a white dildo because I was afraid it would stain or grow dingy over time. Thankfully, the non-porous aspect of this toy has kept the color clear and pristine like the day I received it, even after using it during *light* menstruation and spotting. Personally, I get too crampy and yucky to use it during my period, so I probably won't be doing that any time soon. Other reviewers seem to have no problem with staining even while using the white ella on their period, as long as it's cleaned promptly after use.

On top of all this, the Ella if stored properly, attracts Zero lint.

DOES IT GET ANY BETTER, REALLY??
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

Classy packaging is a standard with Lelo toys, but I was especially pleased when I unboxed my Ella. There are two options for storing this toy! The Ella first comes packaged in a long black box with the signature Lelo silver lettering - much like what one would expect to house a piece of jewelry. The box is made of quality, black, cardboard. Inside the box, the Lelo Ella sits on a platform-like piece of black cardboard (again, much like one would find in a jewelry box) with an Ella shaped indentation in it to keep it in place. When I removed this platform, I found a black satin drawstring bag (the second storage option) and a free sample of Lelo personal moisturizer.

Needless to say, I love the jewelry comparison, (and I never say this but...) it makes me feel like a princess. So, that's how I've been choosing to store my Ella. I'll use the bag once my toy collection grows too large to box everything I own.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage
    • Minimal

Personal comments

Listen y'all. I'm super new to g-spot stimulation. Super new. I've never squirted, I've never had a g-spot orgasm, I don't know what that's like. Like, there have been times when I've thought "oh that's my g-spot, mmm..." and then backed off because I was nervous or intimidated. BY MY OWN BODILY PLEASURE. I'm sure I'm not alone here. If you're like me, give Ella a shot.
