How does your garden grow? LELO's Iris

The Iris by LELO is a lovely and very feminine vibe that definitely does the trick internally and externally with its carved shaft and dual motors. The functions that cycle between the motors, or the option to use either or both motors at any given time, are a wonderful touch!

extremely useful review
The Iris|Iris vibrator by LELO is one of the most graceful vibes in my collection. Its powder-blue sculptured shaft and white handle, separated by a shiny band of silver are truly lovely. It comes presented in a sturdy black box that holds the vibe and charger, and also comes with a satin pouch.

One very nice feature of the Iris is that the on/off button locks if you push in the center of it for 5 seconds (it unlocks the same way). This is very handy for travel, as it will keep the vibrator from turning on. There are four directional symbols on the round button that control the different features. A “+” and “-” button turn the vibe on and off and cycle through its five speeds. An up and down arrow cycle through the different functions of the vibe.

The functions of the Iris are somewhat different than those found on other vibes, because the Iris has two motors located in the shaft--one in the tip, and one about midway down the base of the shaft. Thus, the functions involve continuous use of one motor or the other, cycling between the two motors, or continuous vibrations of both motors at once. I particularly liked the functions of the Iris because of the change in the location of vibration instead of merely changing the pattern of vibration.

The Iris has five speeds. The lowest is a very subtle hum, and the highest is actually quite strong. The shaft is almost completely firm, with only some slight give at the tip, but coated with incredibly velvety and soft silicone. It is shaped like a stylized flower, and the carved ridges provide excellent internal stimulation while thrusting. The two ridges on the front of the shaft, in particular, felt wonderful sliding in and out and over my g-spot. The shaft is also slightly curved, though I did not find it an effective enough curve for a g-spot orgasm. It definitely stimulated and aroused the g-spot, but I used it for clitoral and labial play to finish off. This vibe is also excellent for external use because you can concentrate the vibrations in the tip for pinpoint stimulation, or run both motors at once for a more encompassing stimulation of the genital region.

The most amazing feature of the Iris, to me, was its silence. Even on its highest setting, this vibe is amazingly quiet; on lower settings, it can barely be heard at all, even when not inserted. The Iris is also rechargeable, which is always a nice feature.

As previously mentioned, the shaft of the Iris is silicone, so should not be used with silicone lubes. It can be sterilized using a 10% bleach solution. The base/handle of the vibe is a hard plastic that is also easy to clean, but not waterproof. There is a plug that covers the adapter hole, however, so you can wipe it down with a damp cloth without any real fear, in my experience.

    Sounds quite lovely.  Great that it is so quiet too, that's a great bonus that isn't available on a lot of the more powerful vibes.  Great review Dame Demi!

    Thanks, Bulma!  Yes, the quietness factor was the most surprising aspect of this vibe for me.

    Did you like this one more or less than the Gigi?  Also, do you ever have an issue with Lelo toys being accidentally turned off by fingers during use?
  • Dame Demi

    I've never used the Gigi, exactly BECAUSE of the problems I've heard about it turning off during use.  I did not have any problems like that with the Iris.  I also think the Iris is more of a thrusting toy, where I'd be more prone (no pun intended) to place the Gigi on my g-spot and let it work its magic with just some minor wiggling.  I do still hope to try it someday.  Maybe for Christmas (though I'm having a harder and harder time each year coming up with 'legitimate' gifts to tell my family I received!  Can't very well say "I got a lovely Phallix glass dildo" to my parents!).

    So, it's easier for you to pick out sex toys that you want than it is to pick out other stuff that you want? Maybe you are spending too much time with your sex toys, an intervention might be in order for Dame Demi.  Just Kidding, how could one ever spend TOO much time with sex toys?

      No, I definitely have my share of OTHER vices, as well!  But when sex-toys comprise 1/3 to 1/2 of your Christmas loot, that can be hard to explain!  I still think your idea of an Intervention might not be a bad thing, though...

    Is that two-motor feature specific to this vibe, or do other Lelo vibes have that as well?

    This is my only LELO vibe, but based on the product descriptions, it's a feature unique to this vibe; and a feature I really, really like!

    Looks fun and discreet =D What do you mean by "controls can be tricky"? Are they kind of like volume/channel /- buttons or...?

    I just love reading your reviews!

    Thank you so much! :) The controls are all arranged on one circular button, so you need to press different areas on the circle to find the setting you want. The circle's kind of small, and I just found it difficult to operate while it was in use.
