Smooth, sleek, no smell whatsoever. Ina is hard plastic and silicone. The vaginal insertion part is totally rigid, as if it is hard plastic coated in silicone. Do not expect the insertable part to have any give or be flexible. The clitoral stimulator is firm silicone but is very flexible, so you can adjust it to your anatomy. It is not floppy however, and springs back when pulled up - so it will apply pressure when lying against your clit. You may want to tilt the Ina to increase or reduce that pressure.
Shaped not quite like an 'S' with a little arm, it's a tilda-like curve with bulbous ends. The design fits well overall, the handle being a natural fit for your hand and the dildo portion fitting well like a belled hook when inserted. It pops in and nestles into place. The clitoral stimulator does the same, it nestles between the labia and pushes onto the clitoris. You can have it spot-on or slightly above, depending on how intense you want the vibrations. The design is luxurious, whimsical and discreet - but it still looks like a sex toy. It would be great for travel, especially considering that it's rechargeable and you can lock the controls. I think its suitable for any woman, whether she is a beginner or a seasoned toy-lover.
The Ina's functions are awesome. This is thoughtful design! There are 8 different patterns/stimulation modes and you can increase each by varying the vibrations. You change modes with the up and down arrow buttons, and change the vibration strength with the + and - buttons. Some of the patterns are just incredible - the insertable portion has a noticeably deep thrum while the clitoral stimulator is more direct and has a higher pitch. Although, it is so quiet! I was actually shocked at how strong the Ina is. I especially liked the rollercoaster pattern and the A/B pattern. The A/B is like stimulation in stereo...it buzzes and rolls inside then does the same clitorally, alternating between the two parts; and when you push the + for greater intensity, it speeds up the pattern!
The Ina is rechargeable, the face will turn from white to red when lit up to let you know when Ina needs to be charged. It charges in just 2 hours and holds a charge for 4 hours of play. The plug in charger looks very similar to a cellphone charger. The port is covered with a fitted silicone flap.
To turn it on, simply hold down the +, to turn it off quickly, hold down the + and - at the same time. To lock/unlock it, hold down all 4 buttons.
The Ina is not waterproof, so do not submerge it. Wash the stem (insertable portion / clitoral stimulator) with water and soap or toy cleaner, and rinse carefully. Do not get the control pad or charging port wet. Simply wipe the handle clean with a damp cloth.
Only use water-based lubes with Ina. The silicone of Ina's body does not play well with silicone lubes.
Lelo is known for their luxe boxes and satin bags - you can store the Ina and her charger in her box, nestled inside her pouch, or to save space, you can simply just use the pouch.
Lelo products have a lot of packaging - even moreso now with the peggable packaging within the outer two boxes. Not that it is difficult to open, just that it is packed well, with many levels of display in mind.
There is the outer box, which is like a sleeve for the inner box. The outer box has a life-size product photo on one side and product information on the other. It's nicely color coordinated to the Ina, so mine was vibrant grape.
The inner box is black and nice enough to keep for storage. Inside that box is a simple black cardstock and clear plastic clamshell encasement containing the Ina. This is made so the Ina can be hung on a peg for store display. It tears open easily though, no worries. The box divider that holds up the package can be removed to make the opened Ina lay flat.
The box also contains the charger, a satin storage pouch, a user's manual, a mini Lelo catalog and a warranty booklet. The booklets are all in many languages but do cover the primary information - I think the User's Manual only lacks description of the 8 stimulation patterns. That would have been appreciated.
This presentation overall would make for an impressive gift.
One little 'factoid' here - the Ina was originally called 'Lola', so you may see it around online under that name - and the User's Manual calls it 'Lola' throughout. Not that it really matters, just letting you know.
I was very happy with Ina from the moment it was charged. I think the dual motors make a big difference in power. This is definitely the strongest and most impressive Lelo toy I own. Compared to the Gigi, the Ina is much stronger.
When I first used the Ina, I had to hold up the clit stimulator in order to comfortably insert the vaginal portion; otherwise, I would have had to ram the clit stimulator against myself.. and ouch, no thanks. But once I got it where I wanted it internally, I slid my finger out from under the clit stimulator and it nestled against me almost perfectly. With a slight upwards tilt, it was totally perfect. Then I played with the settings and got off within less than 3 minutes - I was shocked at how effective the patterns were; the pressure definitely adds to their effect. The Ina totally owned me from the get go. So, yeah, I like it quite a bit! It's like a rabbit in theory but very different in execution - the firmness and curve of the shaft and the pressure of the clit stimulator make for a unique feel.
