Lelo luxury for couples

I had mixed expectations about the Tiani 2, especially considering the price point. Lelo has proven to make great products though, so I took the plunge. All in all, it's a great toy, made of great silicone, multifunctional and innovative. It has a few small niggles to work out, but offers a lot of options for use.

Use

The Tiani 2, by Lelo, is the top of the line couples rechargeable vibrator. It is similar to the Noa, but with the addition of the wireless remote control. It is designed to be worn by the female and stimulate the clit and G-spot simultaneously, either alone or during sex or with the use of a dildo. It comes with 2 different arm attachments. One is concave, to allow for easier penile/dildo penetration. An improvement over the initial design, which is included as a second screw on attachment. Very cool to include both. Lelo is always listening to customer feedback and improving their toys. It is reported that the Tiani 2 is more powerful than the Tiani 1 too.

Alternatively, you could use the Tiani 2 to wear in public, under your clothes, while your partner controls the vibrations with the remote. It can also help provide triple stimulation during anal sex the female wears it, while being penetrated anally.

You can certainly use it for masturbation and foreplay as well.

Material / Texture

Tiani 2 is pure 100% non-porous silicone. Silicone is a 10 on the EF rating scale for safety. There is no noticeable smell and it is smooth to the touch with a very slight amount of drag. Some water-based lubricant, quickly makes is slick and smooth. There is nothing quite like the Silicone Lelo uses. It is pure luxury and worth the price. I just love how it feels to touch.

The vibration portion is firm, but the G stop arm is very flexible, pliable and bendable. Vibrations are transmitted all they way through.

The remote is silicone on one side and silver colored plastic on the other.

The only negative about the material is silicone draws lint and dust, but Lelo's silicone collects far less than other silicone toys I have.

The Tiani 2 is made from: Food-grade material / Hypo-allergenic / Latex free / Non-porous / Phthalates free
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The size of the Tiani 2 is pretty idea, though anatomies vary, so it won't exactly hit the spot for just anyone. For us, it seemed to line up pretty well with the G-spot and clit. I'd say better than expected, based on some reviews and visualization. The vibrator is 1" in diameter and 3 1/4" long/insertable. The arms are 1/4" or less thick and about 1/2" wide.


I'd say it is suitable for travel if you check your luggage. It is small enough to stash in a small pouch or makeup kit. It also has a locking feature so it doesn't accidentally turn on itself. Just press and hold the + and - button for 3 seconds simultaneously.

Tiani 2 comes in your choice of pink, rose or black.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Tiani 2 is rechargeable, which is awesome. No worry about buying batteries or having them die a slow death or using the LR3's, which some dislike. There are 6 different vibration modes ranging from steady to pulsing or escalating. You can control the intensity to your liking as well.

The Tiani 2 can be used with or without the remote control, depending how you plan to use it. I was going to go with the cheaper Noa, but then realized it might be nice to have the remote option for teasing my partner. The remote vibrates, so you can feel what your partner is feeling and not just be a passive observer. Additionally it can be used to stimulate other parts of the body simultaneously, like nipples, belly thighs, etc.

There are 3 different modes Sense motion 1 & 2 and manual mode. In the first mode, you can control the intensity by tilting the remove vertically or horizontally, with vertical being the most intense level of vibration.

The second mode allows control of the vibration by shaking the remote. The faster you shake the more powerful the vibrations. This one I find the least desirable or useful.

In the third mode, you can manually control the vibration strength and mode by using the 3 buttons on the remote control.

The remote vibes can be turned off as well. It is very customizable, but can feel complicated during sex. So there is a bit of a learning curve.

There is a one hour standby time on the vibrator. It will shut itself off after 1 hour if no signal is received from the remote. This is cool if you plan to use it in public under clothing.

Like other Lelo products the + and - control the intensity and the center button controls the mode.

As stated earlier, you can also lock the remote control for travel. (+ and - held for 3 secs together)

    • Hard to figure out

Care and Maintenance

Tiani 2 is rechargeable, which is great if you hate replacing batteries. I am amazed at how long it lasts on a charge. It gets around 2 hrs of playtime on a charge. Charging is somewhere between 1-2 hrs I think

The Silicone is easy to clean and can be sterilized with 10% bleach solution, soaking in a cup of boiling water (I would not soak the vibrator part, just the arms), or with antibacterial soap and/or toy cleaner. For our needs, a quick soap and hot water is enough.

EF recommends not using silicone lube with silicone toys or it can degrade the material.

You can store in a plastic bag or the included cloth pouch if you want to keep dust from attracting itself to your Tiani 2. The box is also reusable for storage.

It comes with a 1 year warranty from Lelo if anything goes wrong and a 10 yr warranty on defects. There is a warranty card included for easy registration. It's nice to know when you are dropping more than a Benjamin on a toy, that the company backs it up.

Packaging

Lelo's packaging as always is top notch. It comes in a sleek, understated black box, with a small Lelo logo discreetly imprinted on it. The outside cardboard sleeve does have pictures of the toy on it, but the interior storage box is minimalist matte black cardboard. There are cutouts within the box and s storage section for the charger, key and manual.

Included in the box: Tiani 2, 2 attachments, charger, battery key, AAA batteries x2, manual, remote control, storage pouch, warranty card, Lelo water-based lube sample pack.

It's really cool they include the lube sample and batteries, so you can play right out of the box (after charging). The manual is multi-language and everything is just classy and high-end.

Lelo has become my favorite sex toy brand.

The packaging is good for storage, but can be recycled as well. The included storage pouch is perfect for stowing in a drawer or toy chest, keeping all the pieces together.

Personal comments

The concept of the Tiani 2 is great. The execution and performance of the remote can be a bit flaky and complicated. In our case, it became a bit of a distraction, as the remote seemed to not respond frequently enough, we just gave up and used the vibrator manually. It seems to work fine when just testing it out, but during playtime, either the blood to my brain had all moved out or it just seems to let us down. Not sure.

A lot of reviewers complained about the vibrator overshooting the clit or not lining-up properly, but I'd say it was on target for her.

Experience

For its size the Tiani 2 gives pretty good vibes and enough variety of patterns. It is a great toy, but power queens will probably want more buzz. You can't really expect much more from such a small package. Like others reported, the Tiani sometimes slips out of position and falls to the side. We had no problem inserting myself in her, with the vibrator inserted. She is pretty tight and I am fairly girthy, and we could have(and have previously) accommodated a bigger toy inside. We used the bendable you too, before with no problems as well, which is noticeably bigger.

We both enjoyed and felt the vibrations from the Tiani. The only downsize is figuring out the remote control, which sometimes seems to have a mind of its own. There is occasional delay in changing speeds/intensity too. I'd give the toy a 5 for design/innovation/materials and 4 for performance.

With her on top it stayed in place pretty well, but the vibrations weren't quite enough for her to orgasm. We had to bring in Lelo's Liv out of the bullpen to finish the game. The vibrations are pretty good, considering the size of the toy, but she requires a lot more stimulation to get off. I'd estimate more than half of women could probably cum from the vibrations, based on experience. Just a guess.
Follow-up commentary
I still think this is a pretty amazing device technology-wise and, for the size, the vibrations are respectable, but they are just not powerful enough for her to get-off on. She needs more G-spot stimulation than this provides, in general. I think it will be fun to use as a remote control vibe though in some instances.
