Nea - clitoral stimulator by LELO - review by Azula

Old Faithful

I purchased my Nea in early February 2011 and have used it (on average) several times a week since then. I'm not sure this is my favorite style of vibe in the entire world, but it works well for what it is. It's a solid choice for anyone seeking a vibrator for use during intercourse. It has some minor comfort/design issues, but I think most people will be very satisfied with it. If you need extremely strong vibrations, keep looking.
Easy to use
Good range of vibrations
Slightly noisy
Loses battery while off
Very slippery when sweaty/lubed
Can be painful

useful review


This is a really handy vibe to have around. I enjoy laying on my stomach while masturbating and using a vibe during sex, and this little beauty lets me do both with ease. It never gets in the way and it's discreet enough to lug around with me on vacation and whatnot. I enjoy both pressing it between my hand and my body and holding it with a little more control. It just depends on my mood.

Material / Texture

The Nea is absolutely beautiful to look at. It's made of a smooth plastic that I had no trouble cleaning. Mine is black with little pink flowers, and I think it's utterly gorgeous. Unfortunately, the plastic can be a little bit painful against my clit, especially if I'm using a dildo at the same time and I manage to trap skin in between the two. Ouch! This isn't too much of a problem most of the time, however.
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The Nea is small and artistic-looking enough that it doesn't really look like a vibrator. This is definitely not your Mama's rabbit vibe! It fits in just about any position, and most people should be able to figure out how to work it pretty easily, regardless of experience level. It hides just about anywhere and travels well.
    • Discreet look/design
    • Ergonomic
    • Whimsical / artistic

Functions / Performance / Controls

The controls on the Nea are pretty intuitive. You push one button to turn on or increase intensity, and the other to lower intensity or turn it off. Once the vibrator is on the highest level, you push the first button again to cycle through the patterns. I think it gets plenty buzzy enough, but I can tell it might not be enough for many people. The Nea does tend to send vibrations through your whole arm, so that is a downside. At the highest levels it can be pretty loud, so keep that in mind. The biggest issue I have with the controls is that I can't figure out how to lock it (if that's even an option on this one). It tends to get bumped and go crazy in my backpack or purse, and since the battery is rechargeable, I can't exactly pop that out before transporting. I should probably overcome my laziness and find my old instruction manual for it.
    • Easy to use
    • Rechargeable
    • Strong patterns

Care and Maintenance

The Nea is easy to clean. I just splash a little soap and water over it and call it good. Keep in mind that you can't sterilize this or even submerge it due to the little charger port on top, so you probably won't want to share it too much.
    • Easy to clean
Follow-up commentary
This is still a quality toy, but I've found another toy that works a lot better for me. The Nea has started having some issues after a couple of years. Her charger port is somehow chipped, making her hard to charge properly. She also seems to lose her charge easily, and her vibrations have become more buzzy than before. My partner still uses her occasionally, but I can't get off with her anymore. I would still recommend her, but with some reservations.
