Living Life to its Fullest With Liv!The only complaints I have on Liv is that it took a few minutes to figure out how to turn her on and go through the patterns but once I figured it out, I was good to go. I do wish the controls weren't on the handle but other than that I think she is just great.
quiet, discreet, awesome packaging
takes time to learn how to use the controls
Liv is a luxury vibrator made by LELO. Liv can be used for both solo or partner play. Since the shaft is curved, it is a great toy for g-spot stimulation and clitoral stimulation. It can be used for anal as well but due to the lack of a flared base, I do not recommend it. For those of you wanting one for anal, I recommend "Billy". Billy is the equivalent of Liv but has the base. This particular item is not waterproof, so I do not recommend using it in water unless you plan on using it solely as a dildo or throwing it in the trash. Once the internal components get wet, the toy will be ruined.
Liv is completely silicone other than the handle, which is made of plastic. The silicone is very smooth to the touch but it does have some grab to it. This item does not have a taste or smell. It is non-porous, hypo-allergenic, and phthalates free. Since this item is silicone, it will be subject to collecting lint and dust. With safety being a concern for many toy users, you can also rest assured that Liv has you covered. She is rated a 10 on safety, so you will have no worries when using her.
Liv has a curved shaft that makes this toy great for g-spot play. Although she is not the biggest toy out there, she does keep me quite satisfied. I imagine if you are looking for a larger toy that she may not be what you are looking for. Liv's size is somewhat small, measuring in at 7 inches long, only 4 1/2 of which is insertable. She is approximately 1 1/8 inches in diameter and 3 3/4 in circumference. She is available in 3 different colors to choose from. Being that Liv isn't very big, I would say she is great for travel and she does have a locking feature so she will not turn on while in your purse or suitcase. Liv does come with a box for storage or a pouch, so I would consider it to be a discreet toy that is easy to hide.
The handle on Liv controls all the functions of this vibrator. It has left and right and up and down controls on it. To turn Liv on, all you have to do is press the right button for a couple seconds. Once turned on, simply hold down the right button to increase the intensity of the vibrations. Press the left to decrease the intensity and hold the left down to turn off. The middle button on the handle allows you to lock Liv in cases of traveling so you will not accidentally turn her on in your bag or suitcase. Liv does have several options of patterns as well. Simply press the up and down buttons to scroll through them. I do have to say it is quite easy to accidentally press the buttons when using this toy, since they are all on the handle. Other than that, I really cannot complain at all about this toy. As I stated earlier, this toy is not to be used in water; if you do, it will no longer be of any use for you. One thing about Liv I do love is the fact that she does not use batteries; simply plug her in to a wall outlet and charge for around 2 hours. Once charged, she will give you a few hours of play time.
Caring for Liv is quite easy: simply use a wash cloth with water and soap to wipe her down. Be careful, though, not to get any water in the charging port. Always check before cleaning to make sure the compartment is fully covered and closed. Liv can also be cleaned with non-silicone cleansing sprays and wipes. Please do not use silicone products with this item for they will degrade the materials and ruin the toy. As far as storage, I recommend placing Liv back in the box she came in or the bag that is supplied with her. This will help to keep her from collecting lint and dirt. It will also keep her discreet where everyone doesn't know your personal business.
Liv is package very nicely. She comes in her own black case with LELO written on the center of it. When you open the box, you will be surprised at how nice it is inside. A black velvet lined holder for storing your Liv and a separate compartment for the paperwork and plugs. This black box isn't all though! This box is inside of another separate LELO cardboard box which has a picture of Liv and also other product information. I was also surprised to find that Liv came with a few additional items. Enclosed inside the box, I found not only the users manual but a nice black LELO toy pouch, a product registration warranty card and users manual. LELO was even nice enough to provide a small sample package of personal moisturizer.
Being that Liv is my first LELO toy, I have to say I am very pleased with the product and the packaging. Although I have only used her once, I did find that the variety of patterns was wonderful. This actually was the first time I have purchased a vibrator with patterns, so although it was a bit awkward, it was nice knowing I could change things up. I do plan on getting to know Liv a lot better in the years to come. She is actually the first toy I have purchased that was considered luxury and I am very pleased with my choice to buy her.
Liv is just great! The packaging is superb. The extra items that were included were wonderful as well. Although she has only been used once, I do plan on getting a lot more use of her. I have a feeling she will be my new best friend in the bedroom. Although it did feel a little weird testing out the patterns, I hope in time to grow to enjoy them like I have the basic vibration that comes on the cheaper vibrators.
Follow-up commentary 1 month after original review
I still really enjoy my Liv. I would say I probably use her 3 or 4 times a month. She is still going strong after 1 full month! She always takes care of my needs and hopefully that will never change. I have to say I am very pleased with my first Lelo toy I ever purchased.
