Liv - sex toy by LELO - review by GNGenie


G-spot vibrator by

Add resource

Love my Liv!

This item is worth it as long as you aren't looking for a "filler". As a vibe (of any shape or size) Liv is a standout!
Variety of vibes, easy to use controls, easy to store, comes with a lovely box.
Too short, too thin, controls easy to hit while playing, not waterproof, water-based lubes.
Rating by reviewer:
somewhat useful review


The Liv is perfect for clitoral simulation, a little foreplay, and a vibration insertion. It didn't get my G-spot, but I can see how it would help others.

The best use, in my opinion, was to turn it on low and tickle my partner with it while he was blindfolded. The gentle vibrations touching at random drove him crazy!

Material / Texture

Liv is a totally smooth toy with a slightly powdery texture. It doesn't provide much interest for thrusting, but that doesn't seem to be what Liv is for. It would be a great dildo for beginners!

Design / Shape / Size

I like Liv's overall design, but it is a little hard to hold when your hands start to get slick: the base of the dildo is just as smooth and gripless as the insertable part. The box it comes with is fairly attractive and holds both the dildo and its charger, so it blends well in a sock drawer (like a small jewelry box that says Lelo). I probably wouldn't travel with it, since I don't doubt it would set off a metal detector, but I'd miss it while I was gone.

My biggest drawback to Liv is its size: Liv is small both in girth and length. If you're looking for something to fill you up, look elsewhere.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Biggest possible wonder of this toy: It recharges! That's right, no more batteries! The charge holds a long time too, so you don't have to worry about running out right in the middle.

The vibration controls are right under your hand! At first, it seems convenient, but then you end up changing the setting by accident which can really jar you out of the mood. There is a lock function, but it takes a minute to set so that can throw you out of the mood too.

That said, the variety and ability to control the vibes is great: from gentle to hard, steady to waves, the Liv has the best variety of vibes I've encountered so far. It is a little noisy, but nowhere near as loud as most other toys.

Care and Maintenance

This toy is very easy to clean: just take a damp papertowel and rub it over the body (not wet! Liv is NOT waterproof!). I store it in the original box in a sock drawer along with the water based lubes you need to use it.


Liv comes in a long black box and is cradled inside a simple molded plastic cradle with a bump at the end to store the charger. The instructions are clear and complete. I could definitely stick a pretty ribbon on this box and make it a present.
Follow-up commentary
This is one toy I will never get tired of. Liv still looks and works just as well as she did the first time I used her!

    So do you use an antibacterial wash while cleaning, I recommend that.
  • Miss Cinnamon
    What material is the Liv made of? I'd also recommend cleaning it with a little soap, too, not just plain water, since water alone doesn't necessarily wash away all the "bad stuff". Welcome to Eden!
  • GNGenie
    Liv is a silicone toy with a smooth plastic base. (woops, thought I'd put that up there)

    I do clean it with a little soap as well (though I've been using Dawn).
