Pleasure unlike any otherIf you are tired of having to buy toys time and time again and are looking for something of higher quality, consider the Lelo Soraya. Lelo is known for their excellent quality, ergonomic designs, and warranty. If you have been trying out toys for a while now and love rabbit style dual stimulators, it might be time for you to consider getting the Soraya.
Feast your eyes upon Lelo's Insignia Soraya! Not much can surpass it in beauty, power, and luxury. This g-spot and clitoral vibrator is easy to use and has a handle to prevent hand cramping. It can be used in solo play or with a partner. I have had my partner use it on me and have used it on them as well as a method of teasing each other. It doesn't look intimidating due to the smaller girth, but with the heavy price tag, a toy like this may be better for more experienced users who know what they are looking for in a toy. Because it is made with nonporous material, it can be used anally. There is a seam running between the ABS plastic and the silicone, so if planning to use it in this way, you must clean it extremely well after or just use a condom. The Soraya is also very quiet and very powerful. Power queens will love this, especially those living with children, roommates, or other people whom they don't want to find out about their bedroom antics.
The beautiful, sleek design features the insertable portion (5" long, 4" around at widest point)with a slight upward curve to it for hitting the g spot at just the right angle. The external stimulator (almost 2.5" long, 2.5" around) is for clitoral stimulation. In total, the toy is 8.5" long. This toy can also be used on your partner. Gently hold the insertable part underneath his balls, or run either end up, down, and around his shaft and tip to send him through the roof. I also would put the toy against my hand when rubbing him or when using it on myself for even more subtle vibrations. Just a warning, he might like using your vibrator almost as much as you do afterwards. This also works great for guys that feel that they are competing with the toy. A lot of guys, as you might know, tend to get this feeling; by using it on them they can understand better that it is just a different sensation and feel less "threatened" by toys in the bedroom. Also, the body safe nonporous silicone makes it a better candidate for sharing. Use condoms for extra protection if sharing with someone you don't know and always remember to be safe and clean the Soraya before and after each use.
Another great feature is the handle. This makes using the Soraya SO much easier! I don't get hand cramping like I do with other toys and it makes it easier to get the perfect angle every time. The controls are placed on the handle so you can change the settings and still have a finger or two free to move the clitoral arm if you need to.
One of the design flaws is the seam between the two materials. While it isn't a big problem for me, it is a little bothersome that gunk can build up in there and women who are more prone to infections can have problems with this. I have read a couple reviews that said it closes up a bit overtime but so far I haven't noticed much of a difference. Either way, you can't feel the seam during use which is good. If prone to infections, try using a condom to prevent material from building up in the seam.
The controls on the Insignia Soraya are very simple: +, -, and () symbols that flash when you press them. The + and - are used to increase or decrease intensity, and the () is to change between modes. Also, if you keep pressing or hold the - button, it will turn the Soraya off. As a current study abroad student, I love the lock function (hold the + and - at the same time until the control pad flashes), because the last thing you need is for the TSA to go through your luggage to look for the source of vibrating sounds. The buttons are easy enough to press, but not so easy that you have to worry about accidentally touching them and getting out of your groove. The control pad is also positioned in just the right spot on the handle of the toy, making it easy to use but not in the way so you don't have to worry about accidentally hitting buttons.
There are 8 different modes, each of which you can change the intensity of once selected. I am a simple woman; basic patterns are all I need to climax and I usually don't end up using the other modes much, however I do sometimes enjoy the roller coaster mode which switches between roller coaster vibrations in the internal and external stimulators. Other vibration patterns include a mix of long and short vibrations through both motors (reminds me a bit of morse code), both motors at once, and also just the internal motor by itself. My only complaint is that the clitoral arm cannot be controlled separately without the internal motor being on as well.
Another feature I love about the Soraya is that the control pad flashes when it is charging. With some toys like the We Vibe, I had no idea when it was done charging. The Soraya takes very little time to change (up to 2 hours max) and lasts for about 4 hours I believe. When finished, the control pad will stay lit and stop flashing. I have used it for long periods of time over and over between charges and never had a problem with it dying on me. Only once or twice have I gotten the battery low enough that the lights started flashing to indicate low battery.
The locations of the vibrations are in the tip of the internal and external portions. I love the thuddy vibrations of the insertable portion. Both motors are extremely powerful and very quiet. While the clitoral arm's vibrations can sound a bit buzzy when on the highest settings, they are muted when using it under the covers or when it is in contact with skin or material. They aren't loud enough that it can be heard through a door, and even though they might sound a bit buzzy, the vibrations are still very intense. I was using it while laying next to the boyfriend while he was watching tv and he didn't even hear it. The design of the controls are my personal favorite out of any toys I have tried thus far.
Close up of the seam:
This product is made with silicone, so use water based lube. Also, store separately from other silicone toys as the materials do not react well together. Thankfully, the Soraya doesn't pick up lint, dirt, and hair like other toys, but do still clean it before and after use. Store in the silk pouch or box when not in use to keep it in top condition.
The packaging is simple, sleek, and elegant as you would expect from Lelo. It just oozes luxury and even includes a brooch featuring the Insignia design. The cardboard box that holds the black Lelo box has a picture of the Soraya on one side with a few material specs and information about the product. Even though it isn't discrete, it doesn't scream sex toy. Besides, the actual storage box itself is a nice, simple, sturdy black box that says Lelo on it so it isn't obvious.
When you take the black box out of the cardboard packaging, you will see that the Soraya is stored snuggly in a velvet cut out with a small compartment on the side which includes the charger, warranty and instruction booklets, a small packet of lubricant, and a silk storage pouch. Even though it comes with a silk pouch, I always end up just storing it back in the box for safekeeping. I have yet to wear the brooch, but it is simple enough that others won't know what it stands for unless they know of Lelo or have one themselves. I have no complaints about the packaging. If you really want to treat yourself or that special someone in your life, this is the way to do it.
