SinFive Ilo silicone - sex toy by SINFIVE - review by ~LaUr3n~

Turm zum Vergnügen-Tower for Pleasure

The Ilo is luxurious and for a reason. Her six levels of vibration and 3 patterns of vibration provide a lot of variety and won't leave you asking for more. The silicone is soft and the shaft it flexible. The box includes lots of information and the batteries needed to operate the Ilo. She is even waterproof so you can take her in the shower. The silicone is anti-microbial so in 6 hours it sterilizes itself!
No smell, 9 vibration levels, Strong, Fairly quiet, Superior construction, Sanitizes itself!
Vibration isn't as strong at head
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Ilo, by SinFive, is a high-end vibrator that delivers lavish vibrations and pleasure. Worth every penny, if you have not experienced silicone or powerful vibration patterns, Ilo will help you discover what you have been missing. The superior material made of silicone will ensure that your investment will last a life time. With the many different vibration patterns and levels of intensity, it is like a new toy every time you use it. The Ilo is designed for females. It caters to vaginal penetration because it is of considerable length and size. It can be used for clitoral stimulation as well. Because there are so many vibration patterns and levels, I feel that this toy is for any experience level. You can use it as a simple probe if you find all of the vibration levels to be too much until you are ready. Being waterproof, it can also be brought into your H20 activities. The Ilo won't leave you waiting for a pleasurable experience in any setting.

Material / Texture

The Ilo is made of 100% anti-microbial silicone. Silicone is super safe for the body, because it can be sterilized. The silicone material is hypo allergenic, non-porous, and latex/pthalate free. The silicone is soft and velvety to the touch but firm to the grip with a little bit of give. The material plus construction can be angled at about 45 degrees in any direction. It has no foul smell or taste. The silicone isn't sticky to the touch but it still collects a bit of dust, hair, etc. The surface has some drag unless lubrication is added. The base of the toy is made of a hard plastic. This makes the toy able to stand up stoically on its base.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

The Ilo has a super unique shape and gorgeous magenta color that I have never seen anywhere else! The majority of the shaft is smooth and traditional in that it is cylindrical, but the top third is quite different. It has four slightly protruding parts, that when looked at from the top, look like a four leaf clover. I named this the pleasure tower because it resembles a rook from a chess game, just with the very top leveled off. The design works best for twisting as well as thrusting which is something not a lot of vibrators or dildos have. In total length the Ilo is just over 8 inches long. 6 3/4 inches are insertable though. It is 5 1/4 inches in circumference, 1 1/2 in diameter, which is a good size for vaginal insertion. The top of the top and more towards the base are able to bend, while the middle is a bit more rigid since the bullet feels like it is positioned there. It actually has some nice weight to it. It weighs about half a pound.

Even though this vibrator is not explicitly phallic shaped, it is large and is isn't that discrete. I recommend keeping it in the box it came in, sans the sleeve with the picture of the toy on it.

Note: the lack of flared base, does not make this toy ideal for anal play.
    • Ergonomic
    • Whimsical / artistic

Functions / Performance / Controls

The controls are located at the base of the toy, but on the shaft above the battery compartment. They are embedded directly under the silicone. There are two buttons, a plus sign and a minus sign. The plus sign is pressed and the Ilo turns on to produce what feels like average vibrations, but this is barely even the start! Press the button again and they increase quite a bit more. Actually you can press the button a total of FIVE more times (6 levels in total). The highest level is ridiculous! I couldn't believe how many levels and increments of vibration there were. My mouth and eyes got wider and wider with each click.

But that isn't the end either! Click again and the Ilo switched between medium and high vibration. The next click will make the same vibration pattern go quicker. The last pattern gradually goes up and down through all the increments of vibration, lowest to highest. The vibrator will cycle through the last four options over and over with clicking unless you press the minus sign to go back down to the regular steady vibration levels. At first I thought this was weird, but then I appreciated it. How annoying is it when you are at the highest level, want a bit of variety, and the vibrator will go to the lowest level with the next click? This way it will keep you close to orgasm and you won't lose the pleasure til you are ready to finish. to turn the toy off, simply hold the minus sign for 2 seconds.

I found that all of the vibration levels were good for me, even the lowest level. The vibrations were concentrated about 1 1/2 inches below the top. It feels like the motor is located there. In order to use it as a clitoral vibrator, laying it on its side works best. It felt great thrusting in and out and because it is somewhat flexible, applying pressure will also contact the g-spot. Then add the twisting! Because of the tower shaped head, twisting the toy creates an awesome fresh sensation. This alone was enough without the vibrations! The noise level is really low. With a tv on I couldn't hear it an arms length away unless it was on the last three levels. Even then it was quiet.

When used in the shower, it was really enjoyable if I could get lubrication to work. Because it is silicone, I had to use water based, but water based plus shower don't mix well. I had to apply lubricant often no matter what kind I used. Without enough lubricant it hurt to insert. Using a silicone lubricated condom solved this problem. Make sure it is not one of those double inside and out lubricated condoms though. It did hold up well in water and didn't stop working. It was able to be submerged as well without any damage that I noticed. You could not hear the toy at all in the shower.
    • Discreet sound
    • Multiple settings
    • Strong patterns

Care and Maintenance

The silicone takes care of itself! Just use a toy cleaner, or soap and warm water the material will do the rest! In 5-6 hours the anti-microbial silicone kills off anything harmful. Normally I would recommend dipping the insertable portion in boiling water, but the instruction say to never place this toy in hot water. It also says to not place in a dishwasher or washing machine (do people actually do that?) Because it is silicone, do not use silicone lubricant. This is a draw back especially since it is water proof. The material does collect dust and hair so if you leave it out, be sure to rinse before using.

The toy take two AA batteries which are included. To insert unscrew the plastic bottom and slide the batteries in. There actually is a pinching action at the bottom that keeps the batteries from falling out. I thought this was pretty cool! Just re-screw the bottom back on and you are ready to go. I used this toy for a total of about an hour and a half and didn't notice any decrease in power. To store, I would keep it in the package it comes in, in a cool dry place.


The Ilo comes in a cardboard box that does a great job of putting the toy on display. But it is a bit of a puzzle box, if you don't pay attention you could miss a lot. First is the black sleeve that is over the box. This sleeve has a raised picture of the Ilo on the front. The back has a very brief description in 15 different languages and also says the Ilo is made in Germany.

This is the open box presentation of the Ilo when the black sleeve is taken off of the inner white storage box. There is a flap that opens and on the left side there is a word Lu|xu|ria| and then it is 14 other languages.

Now here comes the sneaky stuff...I was quite amused by this. If you flip the box over there is a weird picture message on the top. It looks like an equal sign (really a picture of batteries), a square with a '!' on it (really a picture of the information manual), and then an arrow trying to tell you to open the box. So I did. If you pull the plastic toy holder out there are three pamphlets inside.


1. Is a post card inviting you to enjoy a 5 year guarantee on your SinFive product, that is if you can get it to Germany.

2. A fold out information sheet about the SinFive company and products. This is entirely in German so I could read it for the most part, but many others probably can't.

3. The last thing included is a thick information manual about the Ilo. It comes in 15 different languages, each about 3 pages long. it outlines care, use, controls, and battery application.

Then, flip the box over again and pull it out entirely to find the batteries. I didn't realize this was there until doing this review. Ta Da!
So this explains why the box is as big as it is. It works well for long term storage and makes an impressive gift.
    • Batteries included
    • Warrenty information included
    • Would make a nice gift


I am giving the Ilo 5 stars. Because of that top portion of the toy not having as much vibration, I had a harder time finishing without more stimulation from hands or another toy. It is superior in construction and material, and cleanses itself! I love all the different vibration patterns and the power it has while still being quiet. The Ilo truly is a luxury item and will perform as such.

Follow-up commentary
Having used the Ilo for an extended period of time now, I can say that it eats batteries at a higher than average rate but isn't the worst of my toys. I don't mind though, the power is worth it and since this vibrator is so really needs it! I don't use this as much as I thought I would though. The vibration not being strong at the head reduces my g-spot stimulation and I'm not so big on just plain vaginal insertion. I have to say that it is worth the price tag though even though I don't use it all that often. A silicone toy that cleans itself? What can get better than that?
