Defiantly Worth It!

I have enjoyed the Lyla. It is a bit pricier than some other brands, but I would buy another Lelo brand product because of the quality of this product. My husband and I have enjoyed this product as a fun foreplay item that can be used during sex as well. If you are looking for a high quality vibrator with remote then this is definitely worth every penny. This looks and feels very sensual right out of the box. Spend a few moments becoming familiar with the remote and you will be good to go.

Use

The Insignia Lyla takes a little bit of practice to get used to the controls, but this kind of practice is quite a bit of fun! The enclosed booklet is very informative and the directions are accurate, but my husband is a bit "heavy handed". Once we were "trained" on the proper way to handle the control it was quite a lot of fun. This vibrator when inserted does not provide clitoral stimulation, but that is obvious from the description. It is a great clitoral stimulator if you want to use it just for that. It is also fun to wear out as long as you are in a noisy place. The vibrator itself can't be heard when it is inserted, but because the remote vibrates in sync with the actual vibrator, it could be noticed in a quiet setting.

Material / Texture

I like all the Lelo brand toys, due to the material they are constructed of. The material does not have a chemical or plastic type smell. The Lyla is smooth and silky. It easily glides over skin with no grab or drag that some cheaper plastic or other silicone toys have. A light lubricant may be used if any is needed at all. I ordered the hot pink and it is actually pretty.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

I found the size and shape of the Lyla to be perfect. The control is a bit large, but still fits into the pocket of my husband's khaki pants, but might be noticeable in the pocket of a pair of jeans.

The insertable piece of the Lyla is a great size. I am not a fan of any extremely large toys, but I want to know that I have inserted something. The smaller tip allows for easy insertion, while the body had a bit more girth. The weight is substantial enough to be felt, but not so much that you could not wear it as you walked around. If you compared it to another type toy, it is more like a silicone rabbit-type vibrator rather than heavy feeling like a glass dildo.

Lyla has a generous loop on the end so retrieval is simple. The loop is a nice synthetic type chord that is easy to clean. It is thin enough so that it is not distracting.
    • Discreet look/design
    • Ergonomic
    • Partner play

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Lyla's remote control is not something you can use right out of the box. It does require you to read and follow the instructions. The battery compartment on the vibrator is very simple, but the cover on the control is a bit more tricky. You must use the enclosed tool to remove and replace the battery cover. It took me several tries to line it up just right so that it was not cross-threaded.

I have seen several reviews that said that the control and vibrator were hard to sync. I did not find this to be true. After my minor struggle with the remote battery cover, I decided that reading directions and following them actually worked and as a result, my remote and vibrator synced with no problems.

Because there are several modes that the Lyla can function in, you need to have the book handy to learn the movements. The modes really have to be learned and you may want to refer back to the book on occasion.
One slight aggrevation is that we left the remote on even though we turned off the vibrator. The next time we went to use it the battery was dead. We were more careful the second time, and there was no problem. The vibrator is rechargeable, and will easily last for several uses.

The vibrations from the Lyla are more than noticeable, but not too strong. I do not like anything too extreme, so I found this perfect. You cannot hear the vibrations once inserted.
    • Lots of variety in function
    • Multiple settings
    • Rechargeable

Care and Maintenance

I wash my toys with warm water and antibacterial soap. Lyla is easy to clean because it is so smooth. The cord is thin and you can easily dry it with a hand towel. The Lyla is waterproof, but I have never tried it in the shower or tub. The charger cover seems to fit securely, so I don't foresee any problems with using it that way.

The Lyla comes with a small black drawstring bag that is large enough to hold the vibrator, remote, the vibrator's charger, the instruction book and the tool needed to change the remote's battery.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The Lyla packaging is simply beautiful. It reminded me of packaging that comes from Nieman Marcus when you have purchased a nice perfume. Even though it had been shipped UPS, the package held up and held all the components in place so that they did not shift during shipment. Lyla's box is black/gray and very sleek looking. The Lyla feels and operates like a luxury sex toy and the package is your first indication of what to expect. The packaging would make a great gift presentation, and you could store it in the box if you so desired.

The book is very tastefully done and is invaluable. Be sure not to discard this!
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage
    • Very informative

Personal comments

I love the feel and power of this vibrator. I am not a fan of a cool metal bullet type vibrator and rabbit vibrators feel too odd to me. I don't want something that is so powerful that it is numbing, but I don't want to just wonder if someone's phone is on vibrate in my chair.

One of my favorite features is the remote. My husband and I both enjoy the ability to discretely play.
    • Fun couples play!

Experience

I couldn't wait for this to arrive. Although we looked at it on several occasions, we did wait until there was a sale. I did have to charge it for a bit, but by the time my husband arrived home, it was ready to go. We were like two teenagers laughing about how silly we felt trying to work this. Once we were "down to business," we had an enjoyable time. We first used it for clitoral stimulation, and then my husband inserted it. Because my husband and the Lyla worked well together there was no need for lube. When the lyla was removed to make way for my husband, we used it again for clitoral stimulation.

The Lelo brand was recommended to us by the sales girl at the Liberator store in Atlanta. She said they by far had the best feel and durability. She allowed us to touch the product so I had felt the smoothness before I purchased it.
    • Luxurious feel.

    Nice first review. Just a friendly tip, I would mention if it has modes (like vibrations patterns) or just strictly steady vibrations. If it has modes I would describe what they are like.
    Welcome to eden, well done review

    This is a very good first review! I enjoyed reading, but would love to know more about the vibrations, material and all. Are the vibrations like a low hum or buzzy like most cheap, bullet type of vibrators? Or are they penetrating, deep vibrations? I am glad you mentioned that they are not numbing. I hate the buzzy numbing vibes. They do nothing for me. I have wanted to try the Insignia vibe from this line, but am a bit hesitant since I'm not sure how this line's vibrations are designed. I'm picky.

    Thanks for sharing! I definitely look forward to seeing more reviews from you
