This Toy isn't Safe Enough

This toy is so much fun; it's too bad that it's so unsanitary! If only it wasn't for that one bad feature, I'd be using this toy every day!
Handle, good vibrations, Lelo, long and sleek.
Filthy, hard to clean, unhealthy.

This toy will hit your G-spot and feel a lot bigger than it is. As such, it's great for solo play because you can get what you want when you want it without having to search for your happy-place forever. The handle helps you so much, you'll wish all of your toys had one. Its long sleek shape makes it easy for a couple to use it too deeply and poke too hard if they get excited, so take your time if you're using it in bed, unless of course, you like it that deep. Personally, I love hitting my cervix, so if you do too, you'll love that about this toy.

Material / Texture

This toy is made out of the wonderful scentless silicone Lelo is made out of. The "metal" looking area is actually plastic.

Because it's plastic, you won't be able to dip it in boiling water to sanitize it.

Design / Shape / Size

Take a look at the toy where the shiny plastic connects with the silicone. That is this toy's biggest flaw. You can slide your fingernail in between the two and after one use, body juices, bacteria, and who knows what will be living in there. Even if you scrub the toy, you won't be able to get it all out. This is why I feel this toy isn't safe, because personally, I don't have thirty minutes to clean out that slit on both sides every day. I wouldn't recommend dipping it in boiling water either with the plastic.

Engraved into the plastic sides of the tip of the toy is the name "Lelo." This is another spot that takes longer to clean than a toy should.

If you take that aspect away from this toy, it's very fun. The shape along with the handle will make you very happy, and even after an hour-long masturbation session your arm won't be as sore.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrations are certainly not five vrooms, as it said when I bought it. In fact, when on high, it's weaker than my Mona by Lelo (a toy that I love and the reason why I tried the Insignia Isla.) If the Mona is a four, then this is at most a three point five in vibration strength.

This doesn't mean the vibration isn't good though. It was more than pleasing to me. Seeing as I could reach an amazing orgasm meant that this toy gave me what I wanted from it, so even if they're not very "strong", they have that nice frequency that Lelo is known for. The one that doesn't pound so much but more rumbles in a way your body can grip onto; it's just, my Mona rumbles faster.

I loved the vibration settings; all of them are enjoyable. They use the same layout, so if you're already a Lelo fan, you won't have to memorize a new list of settings for the basic on/pulse/pulse faster and so on.

The toy is very quiet, of course, and completely waterproof, although I didn't get a chance to try it in the water, so I can't say more there.

Care and Maintenance

The care and maintenance of this toy are so high that I returned it. I don't know about you, but I can't be bothered to clean out that little area. I know that if I kept using this toy, I'd get a yeast infection or worse in no time. Sure, I use toy cleaner, and sure, I use soap after and before use and rinse well, but that little slit between the silicone and the plastic is too much for me. I know I can't clean in there perfectly without destroying the toy. The Mona by Lelo has the same problem, but that's only between the handle and the insertable part. This crack goes all the way along the Insignia from handle to G-spot.

Personal comments

I love this toy. I'm so saddened by the fact that I couldn't use it as much as I wanted to. I gave it two stars because of how enjoyable it is.
    • Hard to clean
Follow-up commentary
There are a lot of ways to clean it that would possibly get the stuff out, although I'm sure they'd take special cleaning products or more care than I find reasonable. I still don't believe a toy should take rigorous scrubbing or have to have a needle used on it that can damage the toy -- no, thanks. I'm glad I returned this; it'd get damaged or be too much of a handful.

I'm sure it's good for some ladies, but it's a definite no-go for me. I have a whole lot of choices that'd feel just as good as this, without the tedious maintenance.
