Well-Designed for Someone with a Shallow G-SpotIf you have a shallower g-spot this toy would be fantastic for you, but if not, you might want to give the Gigi a miss. While the vibration setting are fantastic, this toy just wasn't long enough for me. Apart from that, it's a really nicely designed toy. So if you have the money (and anatomy), this would probably be a great choice for you.
Difficult to clean with water
Not long enough to reach my g-spot
The girth is on the smaller side and the shape is non-threatening, so I think this could be a good choice for beginners, provided they want to shell out the cash and are able to deal with a hard toy.
There was no smell at all coming out of the packaging, and it hasn't picked up any smells in the month I've had it.
Gigi is curved with a flattened head to target g-spots. For me, this toy just wasn't long enough to hit my g-spot. I needed at least another half inch in length. I think if it was that much longer, it would work really well. The shape of the toy seems like it would be great if my g-spot wasn't as far inside me.
The controls lock, so this would be a good one to take traveling. Just hold both the left (-) and right (+) buttons for about 5 seconds to lock/unlock it.
There are 5 vibration patterns: steady vibration, slow pulse, medium pulse, fast pulse, and "rollercoaster"(steady waves of increasing and decreasing vibration). There are 7 intensity levels (I think...it's kind of hard to tell), from barely there to quite intense. The rollercoaster setting is my favorite. The vibration increases and decreases incredibly smoothly. It's really great! The vibrations are focused at the head of the toy, but they can be felt all the way along the insertable portion. They can be felt in the handle section, but just enough to know that the toy is on. They definitely won't make your hand go numb. The vibrations are very smooth and pretty deep, and though the higher intensities can get a bit intense, they aren't the numbing kind of vibration that can happen with smaller or cheaper toys.
One of the best things about this toy is how quiet it is, even on the highest settings. I can hardly hear it at all when it's under the blankets. Another awesome thing is that it's rechargeable! I love rechargeable toys. It's one of my favorite features. The light around the control buttons will glow red when it needs charging, flashes white while it's charging, and glows a steady white when the charge is full.
The only strong downside of this toy is that it isn't waterproof.
The insertable section of Gigi is silicone, so make sure you stick with a water-based lube. If you really, really want to use a different lube, make sure to at least do a patch test first.
Inside the box, there's a black plastic form that the Gigi sits in, with a piece of shaped, transparent plastic on top. Again, this looks super classy, and this would be an awesome way to store it if you have the space. If not, under the plastic section there's a white satin drawstring bag. There's also a user manual with a guide to the toy, including descriptions of the vibrations, how to recharge, how to care for the Gigi, etc, in multiple languages. There's a "10 year quality guarantee" booklet that shows other LELO toys, and a "1 year warranty" booklet. I'm not really sure what's up with that.
I use it as a clitoral toy sometimes, but the flat head isn't great for targeted stimulation, so I often end up just leaving it in the drawer. It is really well designed though, and I think if it worked with my anatomy better, it would become a favourite. Oh well...
