hElla'va Good Time

Overall, Ella is a wonderful first dildo; it's easy to clean, and incredible for vaginal stimulation by insertion. The G-spot stimulator may fall short for some users, but the other aspects of this toy make it worth the purchase regardless. Great for foreplay or for solo play, Ella is an excellent addition to anyone's toy box.
-Easy to clean
-Several inches of insertability
-Great for partner play or solo
-May not stimulate everyone's G-spot
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


Ella is a classic dildo produced by Lelo, that is easy to clean and a lot of fun to use either solo or with your partner. It is approximately 7" long, 1 1/4" in diameter, and can be comfortably inserted on the long end of the dildo because of its seamless design and sleek curves. The slightly smaller diameter makes Ella ideal for foreplay, as she can service the right areas without bludgeoning or desensitizing prior to intercourse. Ella's shorter, wider side is designed for G-spot stimulation, which might work for some women, but in our case it felt more like a fumble than a touchdown. Other reviews have agreed that this side may not work for everyone; however, the long and sleek end is well worth the purchase on its own. At the very least, the curved end makes Ella very easy to hold onto and manipulate. As it has no moving parts, it is exceptionally versatile and can be used in the shower/tub, as well as in the bedroom. It is easy to hide it, as we travel between apartments, because it is packaged discreetly. We couldn't have asked for a nicer first dildo.

Material / Texture

Ella is made of very safe silicone, is scentless and has a unique, velvety feel. As silicone holds heat, Lelo suggests soaking her in warm water prior to use for additional temperature stimulation. Ella is firm, but flexible, making her very easy to manipulate and to clean. This material not only feels wonderful, but can be sanitized by boiling for 3 minutes or bleaching. The silicone is dishwasher safe as well, though we prefer to hand wash her before and after use. The only difficulty we have encountered cleaning her is the etching on the side of the toy ("Ella"), which must be cleaned a little more forcibly. This might be countered by a different, more forceful cleaning method. As our first dildo, the user friendliness of the material was a big plus.
    • No odor
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

Ella is designed to be a double ended dildo with one side for penetration, while the other end is designed to stimulate the G-spot. However, we found the curved G-spot end served better as a handle, than a stimulator. Some people have contributed this lack of stimulation to the variability of G-spot placement from person to person. It may have also been because we are still inexperienced--we will address this in our follow up review! I wish that Ella could have served the G-spot, but we still really like her. We have discovered that the G-spot stimulator has a nice nob that you can hold onto as you use the long end which gives you great control. The straight end is not entirely cylindrical and it has a slight bump on one side. Her sleekness is not only visually pleasing, but also makes her more discreet looking than other dildos we considered.
    • Beginner
    • Discreet look/design


Though the advertisements describe more function and versatility, we have only used her for vaginal stimulation. Theoretically, the two different ends give you options during foreplay wrapped into one toy. We found she is a great addition to 69'ing or for teasing foreplay. Her shape is enticing and incredible during any facet of sexual foreplay and is an essential addition to your solo or couple's toy box.
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Ella comes in a satin, drawstring bag to discourage the accumulation of debris during storage. Also, she comes with a discreet, long black box that can be easily disguised in plain sight, and makes it easy to transport unbeknownst to others. We use the Eden Fantasy toy cleaner immediately before use, clean it with boiling water after use, and allow it to air dry outside of the box. As we have mentioned before, the etching on the side can be difficult to clean. We have had luck with a Q-tip during sterilization to ensure that it is completely clean. Eden Fantasies suggests that this silicone toy is compatible with water based lubricants.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store
Follow-up commentary
It's still wonderful, and now we've gotten the hang of it a little more, the G-spot portion actually is effective. They should make all toys like Ella.

    So it didn't quite hit the right spot for her? Hopefully continued experience will help there.
