Sleek Ella, great at finding that hidden spot which women desire.Ella is a great g-spot toy, which can also be used in multiple ways. She is offered in three colors, and because she is made out of body safe silicone with a great design, Ella will have a place in our toy collection for a long time.
Body safe silicone, not too large, just firm enough, two sides for pleasure, not very expensive
Ella is designed to allow the user pinpoint g-spot stimulation with one end, and the other end can be used for more traditional insertion or for warming up the vagina prior to insertion. She is good for both beginners and experienced players alike, since Ella quickly searches for the g-spot, while also providing firm pressure to the g-spot. Since Ella does not have a flared base, I would not recommend trying Ella anally. Also, do to the lack of a flared base, I do not believe Ella could be used in a harness, but we have not tried this yet.
Ella is made out of 100% body safe silicone. She is very smooth with almost no drag at all, and there is no noticeable smell. While Ella is not very large, she is quite firm, with really no give at all. She does flex a little bit between the long insertable part and the g-spot kink at the top. Fortunately, because of her size, Ella was not uncomfortable for my wife.
One thing that surprised me with Ella was how her long insertable part was shaped. Looking at the photos, I never noticed that it was not completely uniform around, in that she is somewhat tapered at the top. I found this shape to be great for rubbing the clitoris and getting pinpoint pressure for warming my wife up. Ella was very easy to hold by either end of her, and Ella's design allowed my wife to easily hold her and maneuver the toy while lying on her back. From one end directly to the other, Ella is 7 inches long. The long insertable part is about 5 inches long before her curve, and has a circumference of 4 inches. Since this end is not uniform, her measurements are 1 1/8 inch by 1 1/4 inch tall. After the curve there is another 1 1/2 inch to her, which has a circumference of 4 1/4 inch, or 1 by 1 1/2 inch. Ellas design allows the user to hold her very easily, and while she is not phallic shaped, someone would probably easy guess her intended purpose.
After having reviewed The Expert Guide to the G-Spot by Tristan Taormino, I have been looking for a good g-spot toy for my wife, since all of the other toys that we have are normal vibrators or dildos. Between the Fun Factory Delight, SSA Glass Amethyst, and Lelo Ella, I eventually settled on trying the Ella, due to her price, design and the fact that she is made out of silicone. While Ella has given my wife great g-spot and clitoral orgasms, we have not yet achieved squirting, but this is probably more of a technique issue than a problem with the toy. Overall my wife is very happy with Ella, and I even chose a color she likes, in the Rose color.
Since Ella is made out of silicone, she receives a 10 on Eden Fantasys toy safety scale. Being silicone means that she is non-porous, and body safe. She can be cleaned with warm water and soap, which is what we do, or a 10% bleach solution, boiling it for 3 minutes, or throwing her in the top rack of the dishwasher without detergent. She can also be shared between partners because of being made of out silicone, but you should sterilize her before switching if you do not place a condom over her. Also, because she is made of out silicone, Lelo recommends only using water based lubes, because silicone lube can cause her to become tacky. The only part of her that will require extra attention during cleaning is two Lelos stamped into her sides. After our second use I noticed that there was a little bit of gunk remaining, so I just took a tooth pick to this section to clean it out.
Almost more amazing than the toy itself is the packaging which Ella comes in. Opening up the package from Eden, your first glimpse is of a purple cover with a few words and the design of Ella on it. Inside of that is a very nice Black Box with Ella inside. The box is in the shape of a rectangle, and opening up the box shows Ella underneath a plastic cover. Pull away the cover gives you access to Ella. Below her, you can pull out another piece of plastic, which then gives you access to a white storage bag, an instruction manual in multiple languages, warranty information, and a guide showing the other products which Lelo offers. My wife had to ask me how much did this toy cost, because the packaging was that impressive. She also said that we can learn another language from the instruction manual. (Deutsch, Francais, Espanol, or Italiano anyone?) For the moment we plan on keeping Ella in her white bag that was included in our toy drawer, but the box is very nice and could be used for storage or for gifting.
After having reviewed The Expert Guide to the G-Spot by Tristan Taormino, I have been looking for a good g-spot toy for my wife, since all of the other toys that we have are normal vibrators or dildos. I read a lot of reviews, and I have settled on a few toys to try. Well, the first one was Ella, since she was not too expensive, isn't too large, and that she is made out of silicone. While Ella has given my wife great g-spot stimulation, we have not yet achieved squirting, but this is probably more of a technique issue than a problem with the toy.
Having read many reviews that said Ella immediately honed in and found their g-spot, I was really hoping Ella would for my wife as well. The first time we used her, I first warmed up my wife with the longer end and rubbed the outside of her vagina. Between this and some insertion, she eventually had a really strong clitoral orgasm. Next I tried the other end, and inserted it into my wife and started searching for her g-spot. I allowed her to play with Ella herself at this point so should could quickly find the right angle for g-spot stimulation, and then I could see what angle to use Ella in. She eventually gave control back over to me, and she was able to experience two really nice g-spot orgasms. The next time we used Ella, my wife was on her back with a wedge underneath her. With her legs up, there was some discomfort for her, but eventually we found a comfortable angle to use Ella. While I am not sure to the exact reason for her discomfort this past time, I have read that others have said that Ella might get caught on the pubic bone. Because of this, I would advise users to be cautious while inserting or removing the end for g-spot stimulation, and be especially cautious if you are thrusting any with this end. This might have been the problem with my wife, just because of how the toy was resting. She once again had a very nice g-spot orgasm, and while we have yet to achieve squirting with any method or toy, we once again came close by experiencing many of the signs.
Follow-up commentary 2 months after original review
My wife and I still like to use this toy, but we have found that it is more of a solo toy. The last time I tried using it on her, I was using the flat end. Even though she was giving me directions, I kept missing her g-spot, or I was holding it at the wrong angle. It was not as enjoyable for her. She eventually took over and finished off very quickly. Also, when applying our Sliquid H2O lube, we have discovered that the silicone kinda holds on to it, and it is easier to apply the lube to Ella when compared to a condom.
