Use

Ella is best used as a vaginal toy, from the slimmer side. This lean and smooth sloping shaft is phallic shaped (without being too realistic), and so makes for a nice and simple versitile toy.

Her other side, the more bulbous knob end, is crafted as a g-spot toy, bending at a sharp angle to hit that sensitive area some of us are lucky to know and love. To clarify, even if you haven't been toying long enough to "find" that glorious angle, Ella is shaped so that no matter how you slide her in (as long as she's angled "up", towards the belly button), you'll hit the right spot!

Coming from a sensitive user, however, I found that her g-spot end was too angled for my taste. I like being able to move and adjust my toys to gently prod my g-spot. With the Ella, you don't really have a choice. She's at it immediately! While this didn't make for a good experience for me, I'm sure she's the right fit for more advanced users.

Material / Texture

Lelo (Ella's maker) does a fabulous job at their material and texture choices for their products. Ella is so silky smooth, you immediately want to brush her against your lips and feel her curves along your body (which is what I did). Her smoothness also makes for a no-tug zone. Even if you're not as slippery as you'd like to be, she will not tug or drag on your skin.

At first glance, she seems to be a simple rigid and plastic toy. Don't be fooled! Ella is flexible enough to not irritate when thrusting, but also firm enough to give stable stimulation.

While I enjoy using flexible toys, I do find that some are difficult to slip in. Ella enables her user to easily insert while having the capability to adjust, twist, an angle without discomfort.

An A+ for smooth texture and flexibility!

Design / Shape / Size

As already mentioned, Ella is designed for two types of play: traditional vaginal insertion or g-stop stimulation. I enjoyed her sloping designs for the phallic side, but was uncomfortable with the wider end. Her knob was difficult to insert (especially without proper lubrication), difficult to extract, and had too much of an angle for my sensitive g-spot (I think it depends on how you're shaped, too).

While Ella's design is elegantly simple, she doesn't make for a discreet toy. Her length is what gives her away. I suppose if you really wanted to you could try to pass her off as a hammer.

Keep in mind, Ella is not a vibrating toy, so you may want to use a clitoral vibrator for that extra stimulation.

Performance

I usually use the toy's shape or vibrations to judge its performance, but it's really Ella's texture that has me in awe. I have never been able to use a toy that did not pull on my skin when I was not completely wet. I like having the versatility of Ella's two ends, just in case I become more comfortable with g-spot stimulation.
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Ella is extremely easy to use, clean, and maintain. Her traditional shape makes it easy to clean all surfaces. The fact that she does not have any electronic functions means no worries about wet batteries and you can wet the whole product safely. Ella is a silicone toy, which means that she's safe to use, has no odor, and needs to be cleaned with a water based toy cleaner. I use mild soap and warm water on Ella which keeps her in perfectly clean and safe condition.

After drying off Ella and giving her a few hours to completely air dry, I store her in her silky black pouch (included with purchase) and keep her away from other toys.

Packaging

All of Lelo's products are nicely packaged, comes with complimentary sleeves and pouches, and make for a wonderful gift any girl would love. The box's sleek and trendy design can function as box, a gift box, and storage box. At first, I used the plastic case that came with the box, but found the silk pouch easier to use.
    • Good for storage
    • Very informative

Personal comments

While I do wish Ella was a vibrating toy, I do enjoy her sleek shape and smooth texture, which many vibrators are in lack of. And even though I may not enjoy her g-spot end, it gives me something to look forward to when I'm ready to try it again!

    Nice review. I didn't enjoy her G-spot end very much either. I haven't really tried since I did the review. Good luck with her in the future.

    @ Linga: No problem! Thanks for the comment

    @ Batty: I'm disappointed that the g-spot angle didn't work out for me, too. I'm not sure if it's due to my nature curve or if the bulbous end is just shaped awkwardly.
