G-spot rabbit vibrator by

Add resource

I'm "Ina" happy place with this toy.

The Ina is an elegant rabbit vibe that won’t disappoint women who demand the highest quality and a quiet toy that still delivers power. However, the Ina’s design isn’t suitable for all anatomies, and mileage may vary, especially for users who dislike firm pressure on their clits or need thrusting to get off.

Use

The Ina is designed to be a luxury rabbit-style vibrator that stimulates the clitoris and vagina/G-spot simultaneously. I suppose that it could also be used anally (and stimulate the P-spot as well), since the clitoral stimulator would keep the toy from getting lost, but I've never tried using it for this purpose.

Material / Texture

The Ina is made of 100% silicone over ABS plastic, which means that it is body-safe, non-porous, and phthalate-free. The shaft and clitoral stimulator are made of a matte silicone and are very firm, since they seem to be made of a thin layer of silicone over the firmer material. The handle, which contains no silicone and is made of only ABS plastic, looks sleek and glossy and is firm to the touch.

The body of the Ina feels silky smooth and velvety to the touch. When I sniffed the toy, I did detect a slight plastic-y odor, which surprised me, but I concluded that this was more likely a result of something left over from the factory, and not emanating from the material itself. After cleaning my Ina with soap and water, I sniffed it again and could no longer detect this odor, so my initial hunch was likely correct.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The Ina is a very classy, elegant-looking toy. Since I have the green one, my first impression was that it kind of looks like a cartoon cactus with only one “arm”. However, I wouldn’t call the design whimsical in any way, since this is merely coincidental and this toy is clearly a luxury toy; there are no phallic shafts or animal-shaped stimulators to be found here..not that I have a problem with them since I own a Rabbit Habit and love it, but some dislike animal-shaped toys. To accommodate the more eco-friendly, the Ina is also rechargeable via a small port at the bottom of the toy's handle.

The toy is about 7.5” in total length, with about 3.5” of insertable length. The tip of the clitoral stimulator hits at a mere 1.5” down when measured from the top of the shaft, so the Ina is an excellent choice for women who find the shafts of most rabbit vibes to be too long for them. The short shaft means that women with G-spots situated closer to their vaginal opening will likely benefit from this toy where others have failed them. However, the gradually bulged curve means that the toy is likely to hit yours at some point unless your G-spot is located particularly deep inside your vagina. The toy is also relatively slender in girth at its widest point, at about 1.5” in diameter at its widest point, so it is relatively un-intimidating for the novice user.

One design problem lies in the fact that the clitoral stimulator can be a difficult beast for some women to conquer. It is very rigid, and while it does offer some give, it isn’t a lot. The arm can bend probably half an inch outward from the shaft at the very most, and I’d be reluctant to make it go further than this for fear of breaking the toy. Even if you were to force the arm out and hold it that way during use, there’s no way to prevent it from resting heavily on your clit. Therefore, like others here have already said, the Ina is a very anatomy-dependent toy. If you don’t like heavy pressure on your clit, avoid this toy since it will be disappointing at best and painful at worse.

Functions / Performance / Controls

For its intensity, the Ina is a very quiet toy. The vibrations sound like a very low hum on their lowest setting, and a quiet buzz (more like a cell phone buzz as opposed to an electric mixer). Even on their highest setting, the sounds of the Ina’s vibrations could probably be drowned out by running water in the shower, although you’d have to use the toy while sitting on the toilet or elsewhere since the Ina is, again, not waterproof. Based on this, I’d call the Ina a relatively discreet toy, especially if you don’t need the higher settings in order to get off, and it's therefore suitable if you live in a dorm or have roommates.

The Ina is easy to operate, but the controls may seem confusing at first and I’d recommend reading the instruction manual before you dive right into using your new toy. However, even if you choose not to read the instructions (as many don’t, since I’m stubborn and like figuring things out myself), no disaster will likely ensue. To turn your Ina on, simply press the “+” button (the rightmost one) to start the toy on its lowest setting. Repeated presses of the “+” button will increase the intensity, and presses of the leftmost “-“ button will gradually decrease the speed of the vibrations until the toy is turned off. The top and bottom buttons (the up and down arrows) allow you to cycle through the different vibration patterns that the Ina has to offer. I have numbered and described the features of the different settings below:

1. Steady vibration in both the clit stimulator and shaft.
2. Vibrations are concentrated in the shaft only.
3. Vibrations are concentrated in the clit stimulator only.
4. Vibrations alternate back and forth between the clit stimulator and the shaft.
5. Steadily pulsating vibrations in both the clit stimulator and shaft.
6. The clit stimulator pulsates while the shaft steadily vibrates.
7. Both the clit stimulator and shaft pulsate alternately.
8. Random, or seemingly random, vibrations in the clit stimulator and shaft. The sound that this combination produces is interesting.

The Ina is a rechargeable toy. The battery comes to you with some charge already in it, but I charged mine more before I began playing with the toy. Its charger is a very basic, black, corded device that resembles a cell phone charger, and a small, flexible flap that you can easily move aside covers the port on the toy. The light on the charger turns green when it is plugged in, and once you plug your Ina into it, the buttons on the toy flash on and off. When the lights stop flashing and stay steady, the toy is fully charged and ready for some fun. Be careful, since it is possible to overcharge your Ina.

I can’t personally speak for how long the Ina’s battery life is, since I dislike draining any device’s batteries down all the way - I’m paranoid that it’ll ruin the battery, and am iffy even when it comes to my cell phone, let alone a $155 sex toy. However, mine has lasted me an hour of playtime with no sign of the red light that the toy displays once it is almost out of juice and needs to be recharged.
    • Discreet sound
    • Multiple settings
    • Rechargeable

Care and Maintenance

Since the outer body of the Ina is made of 100% silicone, it is hygienically superior, non-porous, and body safe. While many other silicone toys can be boiled, bleached, or run through the dishwasher, the Ina cannot be disinfected in this way since any of these cleaning methods would ruin the motors and destroy the toy. In the instruction manual, LELO recommends cleaning your Ina with simple warm water and antibacterial soap, although you could also use toy cleaner. As with other silicone toys, never use silicone-based lube with the Ina, since doing so can make the smooth surface of the silicone permanently tacky.

You should also very careful to avoid getting water into the toy’s port or near the buttons during cleaning, since the Ina is not waterproof and doing so could, again, ruin the toy’s motors. LELO also recommends keeping your Ina away from extreme heat and storing it away from toys made of other materials, but the included storage pouch makes it very easy keep your toy happy and lint-free.

Packaging

The Ina comes in an attractive, color-coordinated box; predictably, the color depends on the color of your Ina. The front is solid green (in my case) with nothing but the word “LELO” printed on it, while the back is white with a large picture of the product, plus the word “Ina Pleasure Object” written in small green lettering. One side features a brief blurb about the Ina in English and six other languages, while the other offers specifications. According to the box, the Ina is body-safe, rechargeable, discreet, and a host of other good things. While I would not call the packaging discreet since it features a large picture of the product, it’s very elegant, classy, and not cheap-looking at all. If you were to place the box on a table with the image of the product facing down, it could easily pass as a small shoebox until any would-be snoop turned it over, read more carefully, or it dawned on him/her that there is no such brand as "LELO Shoes".

Once you remove the outermost box, there is another black cardboard box inside that holds the contents in place. These include the toy itself in a sort of pegboard casing that would be used to display it on a store shelf, a black satin storage pouch, the charger, an instruction manual, and two booklets that outline LELO’s one-year guarantee and ten-year quality guarantee. In layman’s terms, the one-year guarantee means that if your Ina breaks within a year of purchasing it, LELO will send you a replacement free of charge. If your Ina breaks within ten years of the purchase date, LELO will send you a coupon for 50% off your next purchase from their online store. Overall, the packaging is very classy and the best that I’ve seen for a toy. My one and only complaint is that the storage pouch isn’t big enough to hold both the toy and the charger.

Experience

My experience with the Ina has been somewhat of a mixed bag, but I’ve generally been pleased with how it has worked for me. The vibrations are strong and thuddy, especially on the higher settings, but even so, my results tend to vary based on my mood and other factors: some days my experience with this toy is fantastic, and other days I don’t tend to get as much out of it and I need to use something else instead. Some days I prefer the softer and more flexible ears and shaft of my Rabbit Habit as opposed to the less forgiving and pliable shaft and clit stimulator of the Ina, and sometimes I need firm, unyielding pressure.

I’ve said this earlier, but should do so again: there is a definite learning curve here, so don’t get frustrated if it doesn’t work for you the first time, and it may not work for you on the second or third try, either. The shape lends itself to some experimentation, but there’s only so much you can do with an inflexible material. If you get off from clit stimulation alone, I have had luck with inserting the toy only up to the tip of the clit stimulator and simply letting the very tip of it vibrate against my clit, rather than inserting the shaft as intended. I do tend to get off from firm pressure against my clit and have had some lovely orgasms of this variety from using the clit stimulator. However, I’ve found that it’s much more satisfying and filling to fully insert the shaft, although I don’t really get much out of the internal vibrations.

There are definitely plenty of reviews floating out there that mention blended orgasms from this toy, but I personally haven’t experienced them. I tend to get more G-spot satisfaction from rapid thrusting, and it’s impossible to do this with the Ina since the clit stimulator gets in the way and is too close to the shaft to allow for much more than simply jabbing yourself in a very uncomfortable fashion. If you prefer steady vibration and pressure against your G-spot, the gradual curve of the Ina would likely do it for you, but if you prefer hard thrusting, then you may want to look elsewhere. Nevertheless, I’ve found that the clitoral stimulator does work for me and I’ve definitely had some very pleasurable experiences with the Ina. As I’ve said, this toy has a learning curve, so if anything else changes I’ll add a follow-up review.
Follow-up commentary
The Ina is still a staple in my collection and a solid rabbit-style vibe. Although I will admit, like other reviewers here, that Ina can be a bit finicky and that some days my other trusty rabbit vibe is more suited for my tastes, I definitely will keep going back to the Ina. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this toy in the majority of instances when it does work out for me.
