Oh Gigi, Orgiastic BlissI love this toy. This is one of the best toys I own in terms of its ability to produce mind-blowing, full body orgasms from clitoral stimulation. The toy is incredibly beautiful, well designed and high quality. It was well worth the money in terms of the pleasure it's given me from the clitoral orgasms.
Incredible clitoral stimulator, extremely beautiful and high quality, simple controls, rechargeable.
Not waterproof, handle was too short making it a mediocre g-spot stimulator.
This toy is specifically designed for use on the g-spot. It also works exceedingly well as a clitoral stimulator and personally, I find it works better for this purpose. I will mention that I found this toy to be too short in terms of length for it to give me a long enough handle to allow me to apply the amount of pressure I need to induce a g-spot orgasm. However, I feel that the length was a problem for me because my vaginal canal is sharply curved and for a lot of women with straighter vaginal canals, this won't be an issue. This toy will work on any woman who likes broad stimulation on her clitoris and/or who has a shallow g-spot in a fairly straight vaginal canal. This toy is great for solo sex on its own. It's also small enough that it can be held on the clitoris while simultaneously using a dildo inside the vagina. This toy could also be held on the clitoris during sexual intercourse.
The stimulating head of this toy is made of very high quality silicone. It has a smooth, silky, velvety texture that feels incredible to the touch. The base of the toy is a white plastic. The silicone portion of the toy is completely seamless and the only seam on the toy is the transition in between the silicone and the plastic. This seam is not deep enough for the toy to trap bacteria here, so cleaning is not a problem. Lelo's silicone is some of the most luxurious feeling silicone I have ever encountered in my toy collecting. This toy has a very rigid shape and does not bend at all. The toy had no smell or taste coming out of the packaging. After extensive use, including washing (at least 5 times a week), over the last 5 months the toy feels just as smooth and luxurious as the day it arrived. This toy requires a water-based lubricant with use since it is made of silicone. The silicone makes cleaning easy despite the fact that the toy is not waterproof. The silicone portion of the toy can be immersed in water and cleaned with soap so long as care is taken to avoid wetting the toy's controls or recharge port.
The design of the toy is as aesthetically beautiful as it is functional. The shape was ideal for applying broad stimulation to the clitoris or the g-spot. My only complaint was that the toy was not long enough nor curved enough for me to manipulate it to get enough pressure on my g-spot to induce an orgasm. This is mostly due to the fact my vaginal canal is sharply curved and this may not be a problem for other women. The shape was ideal for clitoral stimulation. The handle of the toy is very comfortable to hold during clitoral stimulation, but again, is too short for g-spot stimulation in my opinion. The controls are easy to use and only occasionally will I accidentally hit them and change them without intending to. The size is perfect for clitoral or g-spot stimulation (despite the length). It's only 1.25 inches in diameter, so it can be used by someone who is newer to vaginal stimulation as long as lubricant is used. For a beginner though, I would recommend some care in taking the toy out of the vagina since the lip of the head may catch on your vaginal opening. This is not going to be a problem for advanced users or with practice. This toy is pretty discreet, mostly due to its unrealistic ergonomic design. Its small size makes it very easy to travel with and it can be locked to prevent it from turning on while inside a bag.
The toy produces very deep rumbly vibrations that are not remotely buzzy in nature. The flat surface of the head of the toy is where the vibrations are produced, although they diffuse down the entire length of the toy. The toy's controls are very easy to use. There are separate buttons to control intensity of vibration, as well as to cycle through the different modes. This toy offers a variety of modes including the following: static vibration, slow pulse, faster pulse, rapid pulse, and wave. I personally tend to stick with the static vibration. I find the controls very easy to use. When I first got the toy I did have problems with accidentally hitting a button and switching it to pulse mode when I wanted static. However, with frequent use I managed to learn a better way to hold it and this happens rarely now. This toy is incredibly quiet. There's no way someone would hear it behind a closed door. This toy isn't waterproof which is disappointing, but the other features of the toy and its design have made up for this drawback. The toy holds a charge for up to four hours of use. My favorite thing about the toy's battery is that it warns you with a flashing light when the battery is low but will not die on you without warning like battery powered vibrators will.
This toy is incredibly easy to care for. The silicone is easy to clean with just antibacterial soap and water. The silicone portion of the toy can be immersed in water, so long as the controls and the recharge port are kept free of water. The toy is mostly seamless, so there aren't places for bacteria to grow on the toy. This toy also comes with a small drawstring bag for safe keeping. Since this toy is made of silicone, it should never be left touching other silicone toys. This is never a problem with the drawstring bag though. Silicone lubricants will ruin the toy, so make sure you use a water-based lubricant with the Gigi.
The packaging of this toy is absolutely beautiful. The toy comes in a black cardboard box. It's very discreet and luxurious in every way. One of the most exciting parts of getting the toy was getting to open the beautiful box to find an equally beautiful product inside. The box can be used for storage or for a gift box. I kept my box, but I generally don't keep the toy in there since I can store the toy in its drawstring bag with all my other sex toys. The packaging had plenty of instructions that were very clear. The instructions were hardly necessary since the controls were so easy to figure out without instruction.
This was my first high quality vibrator and it has definitely stood the test of time. Its beauty, functionality and quality is characteristic of what I've come to treasure and expect from all of Lelo's products. I've had this toy for about 6 months and I use it at least 5 times a week and it never disappoints. I typically use it as a clitoral stimulator. Despite being marketed as a g-spot toy, I felt it was pretty mediocre in terms of g-spot stimulation. I think, however, this is due to my own anatomy and this would likely not be an issue for most women whose vaginal canals are less sharply curved than mine. The shape of the toy is perfect. My only complaint is that the handle of the toy should be 2 inches longer so that there is more handle outside my body to hold onto when I insert it into my vagina. This is still a minor drawback for me since the toy functions so well as a clitoral stimulator.
My experience with this toy has been absolutely incredible. Despite not working well for g-spot stimulation, it far surpassed my expectations for its use as a clitoral stimulator. I use this toy as part of my daily masturbatory session most days. This toy produces very intense, full body orgasms after about 25 minutes of use. I've had some of the most powerful orgasms of my life with this toy. I've more than made up the price for this toy in terms of the number and intensity of orgasms it's given me.
Follow-up commentary 5 months after original review
I actually wish I could change my rating of this toy to 5 stars. I've had this toy almost a year now, and it is still my go-to masturbation aid. This was my first luxury toy, and even compared to several other luxury toys that I own I have yet to find a toy that works better for me in terms of solo use. The rigidity of this toy is extremely conducive to my own anatomy in terms of clitoral stimulation. I have found that this toy isn't great for use with a partner since it is too long and doesn't fit well between bodies. I don't like it internally as much, because it just doesn't fit my curved anatomy well and I generally prefer toys that don't vibrate inside my vagina. While this toy does have pros and cons, the fact that it excels as a clitoral stimulator for solo use more than anything I've ever used makes up for any of its flaws. I have a well-rounded collection of toys and each one has its niche, including my Gigi. Of my collection during solo use, I use this toy more than any other. If this toy ever dies I will hold a funeral in its honor and buy another one immediately.
