Looks Like Lipstick, Feels Like Bliss

What more could one ask for in a toy – USB rechargeable, discreet, petite and she also knows how to deliver the power! If you're looking for a small toy who can get the job done anytime, (almost) anywhere – Mia could be the one for you.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS:

It wasn't until I joined Eden Fantasys, that I learnt there was even such a thing as a USB rechargeable toy. It was somewhat of a novelty factor of just popping it in my laptop that really attracted me. I had read some people asking how powerful a USB toy could actually be. I can confirm, Mia is powerful or at least she is for me.

MATERIAL ~ ODOR:

Mia is designed in firm plastic with a small area of silicone where the buttons are featured. I would have appreciated the silver strip being actual stainless steel. These materials are non-porous, food grade, hypo-allergenic, phthalates and latex free which earns this toy a rating 8. Because of the small section of silicone, I recommend only water based lubricants. Mia is so smooth that she slides effortlessly across your clitoris or any other surface. Due to the slippery surface, lubricant would make the vibrator difficult to hold if the lube happened to work to your fingers. Being plastic, there was no odor at all.

COLORING ~ TEXTURE:

I went with the purple. I'm trying to step outside my box but have a hard time passing up the opportunity to introduce another purple item into my collection. Mia has a beautiful, shiny, buttery smooth plastic surface with silicone buttons. Between the buttons and the cap is a plastic strip, made to resemble a metal character feature. It doesn't serve any purpose, such as gripping due to it being totally smooth. There are no seams apart from this silver strip.

CONTROLS ~ SHAPE:

Mia features a + and button which take you through several vibration levels. Either press the + continuously or individually to reach the desired power. The same applies to the button when you wish to lower the level or turn her off. Each time a button is pressed, a small LED between the two will emit a glow. I'm yet to accidentally press either button during play. Because this one is rechargeable and also tiny enough to take anywhere, the lovely people at LELO have given her handy lockable buttons. This avoids having to drain her for trips such as on planes – no risk of Mia having her own fun in your luggage and causing a scene. To activate the locking option, simply hold both the + and buttons for 5 seconds. Applying these directions again will unlock the buttons, as will charging.
There's some hidden treasures (unless you read the book ~ which I'm not accustomed to) for those who love different vibrations. By pressing the + until the vibrator is at maximum intensity, releasing and holding the button down again for a few seconds will reveal three different patterns. The following effects will be achieved each time the + button is pressed.

1. Drawn out pulsating
2. Medium pulsating
3. Fast pulsating

To step back to the constant vibration, simply press the button.

Mia is somewhat cigar shaped but with a lipstick looking USB cap. Or perhaps even a large unique flash drive – when the cap is off. The vibrations travel throughout the entire toy but are slightly more prominent at the rounded tip. The only problem I found with this toy was after extended play, the cap started to make its way off. This was only caused because I had just pushed the cap on. I have since learned that to secure it on properly, you need to push and turn it so it seals and sits flush against the main body of the toy. This will help with washing too so you can rest assured she is safe to clean under the tap (don't submerge). Mia is 4.3” in length, 2.7” in circumference and weighs just .1lb.

NOISE ~ POWER:

This mini vibrator is so silent that it can barely be heard underneath light summer bedding and certainly not through a closed door. Perfect for those of us who require discreet toys due to living arrangements. I love quiet vibrators which allow me to go with the flow and concentrate on my pleasure without having to worry about noisy motors.

Mia is charged via a USB port either in your computer or a universal adaptor. My first initial charging took 42mins. Being impatient myself, I understand what readers may be thinking but she is worth the wait! The manual states a full charge will normally take around 2hrs and last up to 4hrs of pleasure. While Mia is charging, the LED will pulsate and will then emit a constant glow when done. So you can be prepared and not disappointed in the middle of play, the LED glows red when the battery is getting low and needs charging.

CLEANING ~ STORAGE ~ PACKAGING:

This toy is only splash proof so if you choose to wash it with anti-bacterial soap, just be sure to place the cap on properly. I don't think the USB area would function too well if water was to seep in. You could play it safe and clean this one with wipes or toy spray. Being made of smooth plastic, it's very easy to simply wipe it over – particularly with anti-bacterial wipes. Due to the small nature of this toy (it's not very practical placing a condom on it), I recommend not sharing this with anyone you're not fluid bonded with.

The sweet little Mia arrived in a nice shiny purple cardboard box which isn't discreet in any way due to the toy images. Inside is a solid black box with the only thing obvious is the LELO name in black stamped on the lid. Mia sits in firm molded dark plastic in the shape of the vibrator and then has clear plastic over the top to keep everything in place. Underneath the plastic pieces houses the USB charger, 1yr warranty, 10yr guarantee, user manual and a satin pouch. The 10yr guarantee gives you peace of mind in the fact that if your toy should cease to function in this time, you can send it back to LELO and will be given 50% off your next website purchase.

I kept my box so all the bits are in one place. This allows the pouch to be used for a less fortunate toy.

USE:

Mia is so petite that it could easily be placed between a couple during intercourse for both to enjoy. Whether you enjoy giving your partner control over the vibrator to tease you for warm up or use it in solo fun, this one is sure to please both sexes. It can be used as a clitoral vibe, teasing the vaginal entrance, anus (don't try to penetrate anally with this one), nipples and other sensitive zones. If it wasn't for the name and buttons, this toy could be totally discreet. Carry it in your handbag for those on the road trips that require some pleasure to break the boredom!

EXPERIENCE:

Mia is strong enough to bring me to multiple orgasms but doesn't cause numbing to my clitoris, fingers or any other areas I choose to use this vibrator on. I love small vibrating toys I can just grab (no fussing around) for those moments when you need a quickie. She is also great for getting me warmed up or for when my Master is in a teasing mood!

I give Mia a rating of 5 stars.
Follow-up commentary
Mia has become my favorite simple clit stimulation vibrator! She is small, yet powerful and gets straight to the point if you're after a quick release.
She seem to hold a charge for ages. I have abused this vibe and have only had to recharge once since the first initial charging.

The only issue I have is that the plastic rubs on my middle finger as I hold it tight like a pen which then causes a slight callous if use it for clitoris stimulation everytime for a couple of weeks.
Still, it's a small price to pay for a toy that does a splendid job!

    Good to know that you need to press the cap on AND turn it... I have this toy and didn't realize the turning part and have been pretty concerned about the cap not sitting totally flush against the shaft. Thanks!
