I am one of those that needs a powerful vibrator to reach orgasm. I had been using cheap bullet vibes but the high frequency vibrations more often than not just left me all tuned up, unsatisfied, and unable to reach orgasm. So I decided to buy a proper vibrator. I did a lot of research until I decided to buy an Iris. When she arrived I was very exited, the packaging and presentation just oozes quality through and through. It comes in a black cardboard box to store it in and a black satin storage pouch. The shaft is made out of silky smooth 100% medical grade silicone and the handle is made of body friendly PC-ABS plastic hence there is no taste nor smell. Cleaning is easy since it's made of silicone, soap and water will suffice. Use water based lubricants or if you want to try silicone based do a spot test first to see if it's compatible. The shaft is rigid so keep that in mind when considering the size if you are going to use it for insertion, it has no give. The Iris is rechargeable and it takes 4 hours to fully charge it and the charge will last up to 4 hours at 70% intensity. Lelo offers one year warranty on all it's products, something that came in handy for me, but more on that later.

The Iris has two motors in the shaft, one in the top and another lower in the shaft. You have the option of having the top motor running, the lower motor running, having both running simultaneously or two different pulsation speeds. In every setting you can change the intensity of the vibration. This for me is a big plus. The vibrator is very quiet even on the highest setting. It's powerful and goes from "barely there" vibrations to strong and powerful. So the bottom line; the Iris is a beautifully designed vibrator, it's stylish and classy, words you don't often associate with sex toys.

Using it:
I used the Iris solely for clitoral stimulation, since I don't like vibration inside my vagina, plus the shaft of the Iris is to girthy for me. As I mentioned earlier I need strong clitoral stimulation to orgasm. I could use the wide scale of intensity to build up a good orgasm and also the shaft is rigid allowing more direct stimulation. The frequency of the vibration never left me numb and I never got the feeling of wishing it could go just one higher. I didn't have problems with the control button as some have stated. For me it was the perfect vibrator. Me and my boyfriend would use it every time we had sex.

Problems in paradise
After about a month of use (several times a week) the top motor stopped working, I got a replacement from the shop I bought it in and after a month the same thing happened with the replacement, the top motor stopped and soon the bottom one also. I contacted Lelo, they hadn't heard of this problem before so I sent them the Iris and got another replacement. I didn't even get the change to recharge the second replacement as the same thing happened again. The top motor stopped working. Now I had gone through three Irises, every one broke down in the same way. I contacted a popular high end sex shop and asked if they were familiar with this problem. They were not and said that Lelo products were one of the best quality they had. I again contacted Lelo and sent the iris back. For all my problems they sent me an Elise|Lelo Elise review, the basic design is the same as in the Iris, it just looks different and is more expensive. Well now my Elise has broken down in exactly the same way. That makes four vibrators.

What can I say... it might be me, maybe the vibrator can't handle the pressure I apply to it when I orgasm. It's not much pressure, but pressure never the less. Maybe it's designed to be used more internally than externally. What ever it is, me and Iris/Elise are not compatible. This is my dream vibrator and it looks as though it will remain a dream. I give it 4 stars despite all the trouble, (other wise I would give it 5) Lelo has been excellent in replacing the vibrator and it seems to me that this problem is isolated with me :)

    Never had a problem with a Lelo product.......four times? Could it be the electric service in your area? AC vs DC?. Otherwise, I don't get it.
    I too am hard on toys but my GiGI, also byLelo, just keeps on giving.

    I have three Lelo products and haven't had a single problem... I'm sorry to hear you had so many issues, but glad the company resolved them.

    Liz2: I don't get it ether... it's not the electric service since once the iris came charged and I didn't even manage to recharge it before it started to brake down. I would never consider myself rough on my vibrator but who knows... maybe I am

    ThePornLibrarian: I've never heard of quality problems with lelo products other than myself. And of course if a company offers a one year warranty their products must be good quality

    Hmmmmm, something is strange here. Lelo is fantastic, and their products seldom if not rarely disappoint.

    I had a problem with my first Nea. It died within 5 minutes of me using it. My second one is flawless, as well as the two we purchased for other people as gifts.
    This is really weird............. Maybe it is something with your electrical system? But then you'd think other things in your home would be off as well.

    I had the same problem with Delight recently. I gave up after three tries but still want to try it again. It's such a great toy when it works.

    Beautiful Dreamer: If it was the electrical system I think I would be going through cell phones like new underware... Also I rarely get the chance to charge my irises more than that initial charge. It's a mystery I tell you.

    Snappy: I feel your pain, you find the perfect toy and it just wont work for you!

    I still believe it is the electrical system. You said that after the initial charge; it's gone. Usually with a faulty system or incorrect current it only takes one time. I have "blown" some of my appliances and yes one toy this way in my travels.
    Lelo stands behind their products and they so deliver.
    Keep us informed...I am so curious.

    I think mine is dead too, my fiance gave it to me about a month ago and it kind of worked for a second yesterday but now its not working again this morning. i took the contact plate off and the silicone protective cover and pressed on the contacts. guess I will be returning it for a replacement too....
