Moan-a-ing All NightThe Mona 2 is probably the best luxury beginner vibrator out there. It has great rumbly vibrations, is waterproof, a friendly interface, 6 patterns, easy to control vibrations, and a sleek design. Lelo makes great toys and the Mona is no exception it will keep your G-spot coming back and asking for more.
As I stated this is a very beginner friendly toy, but it still provides great vibrations anybody can enjoy. The power and interesting settings make it good for anyone as long as size is not their primary concern.
Lelo's silicone is a very soft and smooth finish, probably one of the smoothest I have felt. There is very little drag to it and the toy will be very easy to insert, especially with a dab of lubricant.
The head is very rigid, this is likely a good thing, because it keeps the head pointing up towards the G-spot. This toy has no real smell or taste to it. Silicone is very neutral as is the plastic.
The bottom of the toy (the handle) is composed of ABS plastic. It to is non-porous. It is not as important, because it is not going to be inserted in your body. The plastic is very hard, very smooth, has no taste, or smell, and it works well for a handle. There is not much else to say about it.
If you look you can see a slight seam running along the toy. However you cannot feel this toy when it is inserted, so there is nothing to worry about. The toy has no texture to it, making is very smooth and very beginner friendly. I think this would be a really good first luxury vibrator for a person to buy.
Length: 7 3/4"
Insertable length: 5 1/4"
Circumference: 4 1/2"
Diameter: 1 1/4"
Weight: 0.5 lb
As you can see from that this is a smaller toy in terms of diameter. It is a full length toy though. I enjoy the diameter of the toy. It makes it very easy to use. We do not need much foreplay before we use this toy, it is good for days when my girlfriend is tighter, and the slim size is good for massaging other areas.
The toy has an upwards curve that is designed for G-spot stimulation, and I think it is a nice design. Each person is going to vary in how much pressure and how curve they want on their vibrator. There are toys out there that have more curve, but I think this one will fit everybody. It will not be too aggressive for anyone.
The toy is a bit larger, so hiding it or carrying it in a purse could be tricky. But throwing it in a suitcase or in a drawer in your room would be very easy to do.
The patterns are as follows:
1) Straight Vibrations
3) Quicker pulsing
4) Starts low builds to high
5) Starts low builds to higher than 4
6) Random Variations
The patterns are quite varied and interesting. Typically we prefer straight vibrations, but these are fun from time to time. The buttons on the toy are very straightforward and very easy to use. They do take up more space, but it is the most user-friendly interface I have seen.
The vibrations are located primarily in the head of the toy, because they are strong they do travel down the handle to some extent, but not very much. I do not think you hand will get numb using this toy. The vibrations themselves are lovely. They are a deep rumbly powerful vibration that feels really good according to my girlfriend.
The toy is marketed as waterproof. I was very skeptical because there is only a silicone or plastic piece that keeps the charger dry, and the buttons look like they would get wet. Although I have not tried this toy underwater other reviews have said they have and that it worked. So this toy is waterproof.
The toy is quite quiet. I do not think you can hear it through a door. If you have a room to yourself you definitely have all the privacy you need to use this toy. Which is a nice feature too.
This toy is rechargeable which I very much like. It takes around 2 hours to get up to a 4 hour charge out of this toy. There is a small charging port at the bottom of the toy that you plug in. I have found it holds a charge well and that coming back after a couple of days it still has good power left in it.
Overall this toy performed great. It provided nice stimulation and was easy to use.
Warranty Card, Charger, Case, Instructions, and the Mona 2. Everything that you get:
Because of the electrical components you should not boil this toy or stick it in the dishwasher. You might be able to sterilize it in a 10% bleach solution, but it might damage something. I am unsure about this and you would have to do some research.
Silicone and ABS plastic are very easy to take care of. It is non-porous so it does not harbor any bacteria or germs. After soap and water the toy is very clean and could likely be shared between partners (there is a bit of risk with just soap and water).
Storing the toy is easy because it comes with a nice storage pouch. Its just a bag with drawstrings that fits both the Mona 2, your warranty card, and the charger.
Because this is a silicone based toy you should NOT use it with a silicone based lubricant. Instead use a water based lubricant. The toy is nice and smooth with low drag and I found you did not need that much lubricant. If you get really wet you might not even need any.
There is a small instruction booklet that tells you about this toys warranty (1 year limited warranty they will replace it, 10 year warranty where they will give you a discount on your next purchase). It is very useful and tells you everything you want to know.
The packaging is not discreet, it shows photos of the vibrator, but it is classy.
You could use the box for storage, but it comes with a storage pouch that takes up a lot less room.
