Liv has become a regular third in our bedroom

A great toy. Our first high end vibrator and first silicone toy and now we see what we were missing. The material is top notch, strong vibrations, variable patterns/speeds and recharegable make this a worthwhile toy. It has become our go to vibrator/dildo. Great size for newbies, but may be too small for size queens.

Use

Liv has been a welcome third to our love making, since we got her a few months ago.

Liv is a fantastic multi-function insertable vibrator ideal for vaginal/clitoral stimulation, but can also be used anally with care. Liv's brother Billy is the "male" version of Lelo's Liv and is intended for male prostate stimulation and has a flared base for safety, which Liv does not, but they are otherwise the same dildo with different color options.

I picked this up intending to be used for both partners and is an ideal size for vaginal or anal play. It is perfect for solo or partner play. It works equally well internally or externally with strong and deep vibrations.

Liv is an ideal size for vaginal or anal penetration for beginners and advanced players. Only size queens might find her inadequate for penetration.

Material / Texture

Liv is pure 100% non porous silicone on the insertable part and plastic on the control handle. Silicone is a 10 on the EF rating scale for safety. There is no noticeable smell from Liv and it is smooth to the touch with a noticeable amount of drag. The drag can be a plus or minus depending on your preference, but a good water based lube makes it easily insertable and reduces the inherent drag. It is also a good size for using condoms as a cover for anal play, if you like easier clean up and want to take turns stimulating different holes in one session. It is able to be sterilized though, so you can share or swap between holes after cleaning if you so choose.

The only negative about the material is silicone draws lint and dust, but this is no worse than most any other silicone toy I have used in that regard.

Liv is great for beginners or advanced players alike, depending on your preference for size, shape. It is somewhat realistic in shape, but with a more sleek futuristic look.

Liv is made from: Food-grade material / Hypo-allergenic / Latex free / Non-porous / Phthalates free
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

Liv comes in a beautiful design with 7 inches of length (4 1/2" insertable) in your choice of sexy colors (lime green, Pink, Navy). It is 1 1/8" in diameter, 3 3/4" circumference. It has a nice gradual curve to fit your anatomy and ideally hit the G spot (or prostate if you are a man). I think it is a great size and it was actually smaller than I had envisioned, which also makes it pretty portable for travel. It weighs around a 1lb or less and feels solidly constructed. It comes with a recharge cable.

If you are a size queen you might find it small for insertion, but for us it is just right.

Functions / Performance / Controls

I found Liv to be impressively quiet considering how powerful she is, which is great if you have roommates, thin walls or just don't like the distraction of loud toys. The vibrations are deep, powerful and will resonate within your body, not just on the surface. The vibrations can be felt throughout the shaft, but seem to be centered more at the head. Unfortunately, for this price range, it is not completely waterproof, but you can soak the head in water/bleach solution for cleaning or run under the tap, being careful not to get water in the charge port. The charge port has an attached cover, but it slides out easily. It's merely to keep out unwanted dust/debris/moisture.

The controls are simple to use, but may be confusing at first, esp if you have no instructions like we did. There is a four way button that is nearly flush against the handle. You hold it down for a few seconds to turn it on or off. You press the left button to decrease the intensity of vibration and right to increase intensity. Pressing the up/down button changes the pulsing rhythm. You can only cycle though them in one direction, so you would have to go all the way back to either end of the spectrum to get the vibration pattern of your choice. It's a minor complaint though.

There are 5 different patterns of vibration ranging from slow escalating, pulsating to continuous buzz, with different speeds of pause in between like what is typical of these type toys.

I've seen others complain about the control layout. I guess for solo use it could be a bit more difficult to change settings (esp backdoor use), because you have to re-orient yourself with North-South, East-West and it can be easy to inadvertently change a setting or sometimes seems to take more than one try to change the pattern. Most of my use was using this on my partner during oral and foreplay, so I didn't have much trouble hitting the settings I wanted. I did fumble around a bit using it solo.

If I could change anything, maybe I would want a little more handle room, but I like it for what it is really and it makes it more compact.

There is a light beneath the control button that lights up briefly to alert you when you turn Liv on and turns red when low on battery power. It blinks white while charging too.

Care and Maintenance

Liv 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 2-4 hrs I think (I've only had to recharge it twice in two months with frequent use).

The Silicone is easy to clean and can be sterilized with 10% bleach solution, soaking in a cup of boiling water, or with antibacterial soap and/or toy cleaner.

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

You can store in a plastic bag or a cloth pouch if you want to keep dust from attracting itself to liv's gorgeous curves.

Liv comes with a 1 year warranty from Lelo if anything goes wrong (though I doubt it applies to me). It's nice to know when you are dropping a Benjamin on a toy though.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

I actually picked this up on the EF Classifieds, because I wasn't ready to drop $100 on a new one, so I did not get the box/instructions that come with it, but I have seen photos and the packaging is attractive and secure. I believe it comes with a drawstring pouch too, which I did not get either.

Knowing it was 100% silicone and lightly used, I was ok trying a "Pre-owned" model to see what all the rave about Lelo was. I had never owned a high end vibrator before and now I can appreciate the quality.

In hindsight, I'd say it would be money well spent at/near full price for those on the fence.

Personal comments

I love this toy and so does my partner. It has replaced all of our other vibrators for foreplay in the past 2 months and we use it almost every day. It hits her g spot nicely and the vibrations are really strong and deep. It is an ideal size for us, though I wish it were longer for prostate stimulation. It works great on her though. When she rides me on top during sex, I place the head right under her clit on full power and she cums like she never has before. It also drives her nuts to use on her G spot while I lick her clit. You can rock it up and down, roll it side to side or thrust it, all while giving oral and the handle does not get in your way. She had some trouble cumming from oral alone, but once I introduced her to Liv, that is no longer a problem.

I was curious about Lelo's Billy originally (liv equivalent) and was skeptical at first that it would be good for prostate stimulation or would be too large and intimidating for me. When I saw liv listed on the classifieds for a bargain price, I decided to give it a try. On the good side, I found this toy to be smaller (less thick) than it appeared in photos (a good thing) and the vibrations exceeded my expectations, but while pleasurable, the head just does not seem to hit my P-spot like other toys, so I have surrendered Liv to my GF for now. I can't get her to play with it solo, but she sure loves me to use it on her all the time.

It is pleasurable anally, don't get me wrong, but I just didn't get the P-spot sensation I get from other toys, because the head just didn't seem to contact it. I think it would be a great warmup for someone wanting to try anal sex for the first time. The vibrations would completely help relax the muscles.

The lack of a flange might scare some from attempting anal play, but in my experience it's not a big risk of going all the way inside. Your rectum has natural curves and if anything the toy wants to slide out, not in when inserted. You or your partner would be holding the handle as well.
Follow-up commentary
We absolutely love this toy! Hands down the best vibe we ever used and our favorite female toy, though it can be used on him too. We use it almost every session we play. Worth every penny. Sometimes when I am using it on her G spot, she says she think she can feel her teeth rattling. It's an ideal size for us too.
