Delightfully Simple and Silky Toy

If you're looking for a very firm and G-spot friendly toy that's durable, moderately sized, discreet, pleasant to the touch, odorless, and easy to clean up, there's very little chance you'll be disappointed in the Ella.
This toy beautiful, wonderfully firm, and extremely easy to clean.
This toy is so simple, elegant, and well designed, I have no suggestions for improvement.

useful review


If you're unfamiliar with Lelo's line of toys, the Ella is one of their many toys with a wonderfully silky texture and rock-solid construction. It's an excellent toy for women looking for firm G-spot stimulation and gentle penetration (depending on which side of the Ella you use). Men looking for a classier toy for prostate stimulation may also find the Ella useful (although a bit on the large side for beginning prostate play).

Material / Texture

Smell: The Ella has no discernible scent; in fact the glue in the box has a stronger smell than the toy.

Texture: The texture is firm but velvety. You'll have no problem stimulating a G-spot or prostate with this toy as it is very firm; the surface of the toy, however, has a very nice velvety/silky feel to it. The surface maintains the softness even after multiple uses and exposure to lubricant and body fluids.

Weight: It has a nice heft to it and certainly feels more solid than cheaper jelly/rubber toys of a similar size. It feels good in the hand.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

It's a gorgeous looking toy with clean lines. If you're looking for a toy that has a phallic shape for penetrative play but doesn't look like a cheesy fake penis, the Ella is a great pick with its elegant design.

It's suitable for travel based on the lack of motors/wires/batteries/metal parts that could cause a hassle at secure checkpoints, but it's not particularly compact. It's discrete in-so-far as it doesn't immediately call to mind a porn star's molded penis, but you'd be hard pressed to argue that it's an acupressure tool. I'd argue that it's discreet enough to be looked over in a nightstand without someone immediately noticing that it's a sex toy but not discreet enough that you could argue it wasn't a sex toy upon closer examination.
    • Discreet look/design
    • Ergonomic
    • Futuristic


It's a fantastic little toy: the bulbous end is wide and smooth (perfect for people who like firm pressure during g-spot or prostate play) and the narrower end, when lubricated, is a satisfying size for penetrative play. Overall it's very difficult to say anything bad about this toy. It's well balanced, has a nice heft, and is quite versatile with the two distinct ends.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use
    • Lots of variety in function

Care and Maintenance

Extremely easy to clean. It's non-porous, dishwasher safe, and cleans up quickly. I've had no problems with any lubricants (water or oil-based) but have, out of old habit, steered away from silicone lubricants and cannot comment on their effects on the toy's material (a recommendation the manufacturer would second, based on the silicone construction of the toy).

There are no special storage requirements; the Ella is essentially an inert object (no need to store it separately from other toys, remove the batteries, or otherwise fuss over it).
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The LELO company absolutely nails the packaging. Their boxes are beautiful, sturdy, and the toy is always presented well inside. The boxes are so sturdy and nice, as a matter of fact, that we never throw the LELO boxes out. We either use them to store the toy or we throw away the packaging inserts and resuse the box for storage around the bedroom. The box/packaging is absolutely lovely.

The product documentation is thorough and useful.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage
    • Very informative

Personal comments

It's a lovely toy and would make a great first dildo. It's pretty, well packaged, durable, provides different kinds of stimulation, is discreet, and easy to clean. It's another slam dunk toy design from the LELO company that would be a welcome addition to most toy boxes.


It's a favorite around our house when my wife is in the mood for firm g-spot stimulation but not vibration (there are vibrators in the LELO line with the flat head of the Ella toy but the punch of a vibrating motor). With no batteries to worry about and silent operation it gets a lot of use. We'd purchase it again in a heart beat.
