Beautiful and amazing

Soraya performed in every way that I hoped it would. It's powerful and quiet. It has amazing vibrating patterns that satisfy in a way my other vibrators never have before. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the plastic that runs the length of the shaft. This plastic is pretty, but causes some issues with cleaning. I really wish the entire shaft was silicone, at least on the outside.

extremely useful review


Soraya is best used alone or to get you warmed up during foreplay. It has two vibrating zones. One zone is insertable, while the other end stimulates the clitoris. There are several vibrating patterns to make sure you get the stimulation you are looking for. One mode may just tease you and get you warmed up for your partner, while others may have you orgasmic in under a minute.

I find that Soraya is my go to vibrator for all occasions now. It has enough variation and power to do what I want, when I want, and where I want. The three buttons allow you to control the vibration patterns as well as the intensity of the vibrations. It's also quiet so you can use it without worry of someone hearing the toy.

This was a splurge purchase that has paid off over and over again.

Material / Texture

Soraya is very firm with a silicone covering that has a velvety feel. There is no weird smells associated with the toy or residue. The shiny plastic that is found on both sides has stayed shiny, and has not reacted with any lubes or bodily fluids.

The texture of the silicone is pleasant to touch. The clitoral vibrator is firm, but soft and pliable to give you just the right amount of pressure. It is covered in the silicone completely.

Design / Shape / Size

Soraya's design is beautiful and eye catching. I dislike the seam that is created where the silicone meets the plastic, since this causes a crevice that isn't the easiest to clean. It may have been much better if the shiny plastic was only part of the handle, instead of all the way up the shaft. Despite this minor issue, I enjoy everything else about Soraya.

It has a nice length and it is larger at the top, and then tapers in towards the base. It is a good size for beginners, but will more than satisfy an advanced user. It's more about the vibrations than size when you use Soraya.

total length: 8.5 inches
insertable length: 5 inches
circumference: 4 inches
diameter:1.5 inches

clitoral attachment:
length: 2.25 inches
circumference:2.75 inches
diameter: 0.75 inches

It is a rechargeable toy which means it has a plug that may make it difficult to hide if you leave it charging, as I do most of the time. It will hold a charge, so you may charge it overnight and then put it away until the next use. It does have a lock mode so you can travel with your toy and not worry about it accidentally turning on. It also comes with a very nice bag to keep it in.

Functions / Performance / Controls

Soraya has 3 buttons to control it; a plus and minus button to control the vibration intensity, and the middle button which controls the programmed vibration patterns. There are 10 levels of vibration intensity that range from a light buzz to a very intense vibration. You can either press the plus or minus to up the intensity level, or just hold them down to raise or lower the intensity. You hold the minus sign down to turn it off.

Pressing the middle button will allow you to cycle through the 8 different vibration patterns. The first three let you choose whether the shaft vibrates, the clitoral extension vibrates, or both. The 5 other patterns have both zones vibrating in multiple patterns that range from pulsating to escalating and combinations of the two.

The controls are located on the handle which makes it fairly easy to use. The symbols are raised so you can feel which buttons you are pressing without looking. The way the handle is designed makes it easier to keep your grip and push the buttons, even if it gets a little slippery with lube. You can easily slide a couple of fingers through the loop to keep control of the toy.

It's a very powerful and exciting toy to use and surprisingly quiet, especially when inserted. It has a low buzz that won't be heard through your closed door or walls into the bedroom next door. It's also waterproof as well. There is port to plug in the toy and recharge it. The silicone is cut into an X at this point that allows you to plug it in, but when you remove the plug it seals back up. I wouldn't recommend submerging it for long periods of time, and I would avoid pressing the port area if it is submerged to avoid water getting inside the toy. I've washed mine many times and haven't had any issues.

Care and Maintenance

You only need warm water and a mild soap to clean the toy. It contains silicone so you should only use cleansers that are safe for silicone toys. There is a seam created where the silicone meets the metallic looking plastic, and this can cause issues when cleaning. I would recommend cleaning your toy immediately after each use to prevent any bacteria build-up. I also inspect my toy regularly to make sure the seam is clean and clear of debris.
    • Easy to clean


It comes in a large black box with the LELO name on it. It's snuggly placed in a foam cutout to keep it secure. The box also contains the charger, a satin storage bag, a warranty booklet and instructional booklet. The box is rather large, but can be easily placed in a shallow drawer if you choose to use the box for storage. I prefer the satin bag, because I can plug it in while it is in the satin bag to recharge it.
    • Good for storage

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and design of this vibrator. It met my expectations in every way.
