Lia is silicone and feels soft and smooth, much like skin. It's firm but still has some flex to it, but not so much you couldn't hit your g-spot. It doesn't have any odors or tastes that I noticed. It does have three ridges just beneath the head of the toy which add extra stimulation when using it. Beyond that, it is a smooth toy.
I like the design. The overall length of the Lia is about 8 1/2 inches from top to bottom. The ridges are about a 1/2 inch from the top and a 1/2 an inch apart. The handle is about 2 inches of the overall length so the total insertable length is roughly 6 inches.
The Lia is flexible and firm; with one hand I could flex the tip almost straight and give it more curve, it doesn't stay that way but it is nice that it has that give.
I've noticed that a lot of the g-spot stimulators are very petite, they have pointy tips or have no girth. The Lia does not have any of these problems; the head of it is rounded and about 4 1/2 inches in circumference.
Circumference of Head
The neck just beneath the head and before the ridges is About 3 1/2 inches in circumference.
Circumference of Neck
The base where it begins to flare, just beneath the ridges, is also about 4 1/2 inches in circumference.
Then the widest part of the base, before the handle, is about 4 and 3/4 inches in circumference.
This means the toy is bigger than a lot of g-spot vibes, but it's about the same length (insertable) as an average penis and the girth is maybe as large as the average penis at the widest part of it. All in all, I'd say this would be good for beginners or advanced users when it comes to g-spot stimulation, the rest is really a matter of preference.
The function control was a bit odd for me and I worry about there being mix ups or that it will not last very long. There are two push buttons on the handle. Both look very similar. The power button is on the "front", the side with the toy curving toward it.
The power button has the classic half circle with the line in the top. The vibration function is on the opposite side and looks kind of like a butterfly because it is a thick vertical line with vertical zig-zag lines on either side of it.
To use the vibration you push the power button on the front side. This turns it on in the first setting. Pushing the vibration button on the backside will cycle through all of the various functions. So you have to count them to know what function you are on. To me, it seemed most of the vibrations were in the tip of the toy and it did not carry throughout the whole toy, so there was minimal vibrations on my hands. The vibrations, to me, were pretty strong and after holding the toy in my hand going through the functions for about 10 minutes my hand is tingly.
Power on/ Function one = Low Steady Rumble
Function 2 = Medium High Steady Buzz
Function 3 = High Steady Buzz
Function 4 = Steady Rapid Pulse.
Function 5 = .-.-.-.-.-.
Function 6 = ..-..-..-..-
Function 7 = Escalating Pulse 1,2,3,4,5 Starting at a low rumble going into a high buzz
Function 8 = This one is hard to describe It made me think of a helicopter. Very rumbly. It is a steady escalating vibration. About halfway to the high setting it pulses twice, then at the highest point it pulses twice.
Function 9 = Slow steady escalation of vibrations, two pulses, then slowly goes back to lowest vibration and pulses twice.
Function 10 = Escalating pulse 1,2,3 then slow escalation
Since it is a silicone toy, you have to use water based lubes with it. When I took mine out of the box, I washed it with my Climax Bursts toy cleaner. It took to the cleaning just fine. I also cleaned it in warm water and my toy cleaner after use and just shook it off and let it air dry on the plastic box it came in before I stored it back in the box. If you choose to do so, this toy can be sterilized in a 10% bleach solution (recommended after any anal use, or sharing) or simply use a condom.
I found the packaging to be informative and pleasant to look at. It was clear so you got a good look at the toy which is something I love. I hate toys in solid boxes because it makes the toy seem ambiguous. The front simply says it is pure silicone, has an "Extreme Power Motor", ten intense functions and that it is waterproof.
Front Of Box
The back repeats that and then shows pictures of the buttons so you know the difference between the two, although it seems kind of self-evident to me which is which.
Back of Box
The package is appealing, so I think it would make a nice gift; it isn't too much bigger than the toy itself, so it would make an okay place to store the toy. I tend to be a little picky when it comes to vibrators because I am kind of sensitive and they can make me go numb. This toy was strong enough that I found it stimulating and not boring, but not so strong that my clit or nipples went numb when I used it.
It also came with an instruction sheet which was nice. I just like looking at her, I think she's a beauty.
This is my first g-spot toy and I was rather wary of trying it. When I was asked to take this assignment, I figured sure, it looks appealing enough. The first thing I did was take a whole lot of pictures of it and the box. Then I fondled it and put batteries inside. I washed it and rubbed the silicone against my skin in an effort to familiarize myself with the toy. I noticed it said waterproof and decided to make that my first test and I took Lia to the shower with me. She held up fine in the shower. I'm pretty sure I found and stimulated my g-spot which was entirely new to me, but g-spot stimulation alone was not enough to make me orgasm. It felt amazing. I got close three or four times but that stimulation alone wasn't enough. I decided I would test it out in partner play.
I got out of the shower and waved Lia at my fiancee and explained that I needed more and he was more than happy to oblige. He used it on me for a while and while it felt nice, it wasn't enough even when he used his tongue in addition, so I took the toy and told him lets just have sex. While he was inside and stimulating me, I used the Lia to rub my clit, labia and the top of his cock. My g-spot was very sensitive from all the stimulation and I quickly had an orgasm followed by two more short and fast orgasms. Overall, I am very satisfied with the Lia as my first g-spot toy.
