I want to get ella as my first she doesn't seem as menacing as the others made of glass or metal but are those materials better sensation wise?

It comes down to personal preference, really. You're not going to know if glass or metal feels better to you until you try.

A couple things to keep in mind, though: glass and metal have absolutely no give, so they tend to feel bigger than silicone toys of the same size. They're also rather heavy in most cases, and so you need to be a bit more careful when you use them. Being too rough can result in internal bruising. They're very slick and smooth, though, unlike silicone which typically has some drag to it.

The Ella is pretty rigid for a silicone toy, but it's very light and easy to use. It's great if you're new to dildos.

In my experience, glass is not nearly as heavy as metal. Both glass and metal require less lube, though, because they're so slick. They also apply better for temperature play.

i think the ella has worked the best out of all her g-spot toys.

Ella is very firm for a silicone dildo, much more than most. Lelo's silicone is also some of the nicest available. Also, like someone already mentioned, you can cause bruising thrusting too hard with glass or metal so it depends on how you want to use your toy and whether you like very firm materials.

The Ella is absolutely great for some but the shape isn't good for anyone who are a sharp curve to their vagina or who has a g-spot that is a little deeper than average. I have the Gigi which is the same length as the Ella and although its great for clitoral stimulation it just isn't long or curved enough to be able to put enough pressure on my g-spot to get me off. I like the G-Spot Pink Dildo better for this purpose since its curved more and has a long handle.

Maybe I do need something longer. Thanks

Thanks everyone. I guess I will get the Ella or another one simmilar that is longer and see if dildos are even for me. I'm afraid I will need vibrations.

I love my Ella, i have a review on it if anyone has any questions, its not too big and the ability to use as a traditional or g spot toy make it well worth the price and good for first time users.

It does come down to personal taste, but the silcone that is used for Ella is very smooth! It is a smooth and lightweight toy that gets the job done!

Ella was my first dildo! Feel free to read my review.

Ella is one of my favorite dildos. Though as I mentioned in my review her lightweight was that I wished was different. I normally prefer heavier dildos such as glass or metal. But Ella still did the job for me!

I think it is great for beginners because of its size, and the silicone is very nice. It was the first dildo I bought. So I definitely think it is worth looking into. You just have to play around with it to find out what sensations work best for you. It isn't like straight dildos that you can just thrust (I think it's better with a rocking motion or twisting it side to side a bit against my g-spot).
