Ella Enchanted?

I cannot tell a lie- Ella is a well crafted high quality dildo, suitable for both beginners and advanced users. As a double-ended dildo, Ella provides a variety of pleasurable sensations, and finds the g-spot with ease! Her unassuming size and non-phallic appearance makes her a perfect travel companion.

extremely useful review


Ella is an insertable double-ended dildo. One end is flat and tapered, which is really good at hitting the g-spot. The other end is straight and pointed, which is reminiscent of a more traditional dido. Do not use this dildo anally because it lacks a flared base.

Ella has a limited amount of flexibility, so she can be manipulated to hit all of the right spots. But she is relatively light, weighing in at only 111 grams. This is either a positive or negative, depending on your personal preferences. Personally, I wish it were a little larger and heavier.

I should note that the tapered end seemed to catch on my vaginal opening when I thrusted it too far forward. This was definitely a disappointment because I didn't expect any discomfort! However I found that with shallow thrusting this wasn't an issue. One of my favorite ways to use Ella is by placing her right on my g-spot and then holding a vibrator to her. So much fun!

Material / Texture

Ella is made of body safe phthalate-free silicone that is odorless and quite smooth. But there is a "LELO" logo embossed on the straight end. Make sure to clean this end extra carefully to ensure that bacteria don’t get trapped in this area (I've never had a problem with this). There is also a seam running down her back, but it's not noticeable while in use.
Since Ella is made of silicone, all silicone-based lubricants should be avoided.

I do like the silicone; however gripping the Ella can be difficult, especially if the handle (either the tapered or straight end) is covered in lubricant. I would recommend keeping a roll of paper towels nearby to remove excess lube or to aid in the gripping process.

Unfortunately Ella is very social - hair and lint hang out with her constantly! She also picks up the white threads from her (crisp white satin!!) pouch.

Design / Shape / Size

Ella was designed beautifully! The tapered end rubbed up very nicely against my g-spot, and thrusting with the straight end was very comfortable. I didn't like thrusting with the curved end because it would occasionally catch on my vaginal opening. While I am definitely happy that I invested in Ella, I was disappointed that my experience with her wasn't as overwhelmingly positive as many of the other reviewers' experiences.

This dildo was designed to be used by one person at a time. Although Ella is advertised as a "double ended dildo," it only measures 195 x 50 x 30 mm, which some may find disappointing. It is *just* long enough for me. I would imagine that Ella would do her best work during solo play, although I haven't tried using her with a partner.

Also, Ella does not have girth. While I definitely notice Ella's presence, she is much smaller than my other toys (EX the Pure Wand, Iris and many others). I tend to like larger toys, so I do not use Ella very much, even though she is a high quality dildo. But her small size makes her my toy of choice for travel! And since she is very discreet, she is unlikely to give airport security any trouble. I have traveled with her in my carry-on bag numerous times without any problems.


Ella performed well. I wouldn't say that she is my favorite dildo, however I am glad that I made the investment. I should say that I'm partial to solid toys made out of stainless steel or glass, so Ella's flexibility was a negative from my perspective.

I have had many wonderful orgasms with Ella, but I needed a vibrator on my clitoris in order to come. Then again, I haven't been able to orgasm without any clit stimulation. I also liked placing my LELO Gigi (review to be posted) against Ella, since she transfers vibrations very nicely.

Care and Maintenance

Ella can be cleaned with soap and water or sterilized via boiling or wiping with a mild 10% bleach solution. She is also dishwasher safe (but make sure to put her on the top rack). Do not clean her with products containing alcohol, petrol or acetone. And remember to clean the embossed logo thoroughly.

I also keep Ella in the enclosed white satin bag when she is not in use. This bag is not antibacterial, but it does protect Ella from the environment. Make sure to wash Ella before and after use, since she picks up dust and lint very easily. Ella should also be stored away from direct sunlight.

Again, remember not to use silicone lubricants with Ella (or any other silicone toy).


LELO sets the bar when it comes to packaging. I purchased this toy months ago, so I don't remember the nuances of the box. But I do remember that it came in a well protected black box. When I opened the black box, Ella was there covered in a plastic shell. It felt like I was opening a jewelry box! Ella's presentation, and relatively low cost (compared to other LELO products), makes her a great present!

Personal comments

Ella is a quality dildo. I can hit my g-spot reliably. If you want a dildo with some flexibility, or if you need a dildo for traveling, then I highly recommend investing in this product. However if you strongly favor rigid toys, then Ella might not be for you.


I have had Ella for about 7 months and I do not use her very often. When I am home, I almost always reach for my larger toys. I am glad that Ella is a member of my "special drawer," however if I lose her I won't buy her again.
Follow-up commentary
I wish they had an "I kinda liked it -> I really like it" button. I definitely had a g-spot orgasm with this toy. And the most surprising part was that it was with the straight end. Clearly the toy hasn't changed, but I probably have.

I can safely say that I'll use her a lot more often from this point forward.

    Sorry I don't have that one :/ But I wouldn't recommend using this toy anally since it doesn't have a flared base.
