Pretty fly for a small guy!

The Noa is a new innovative toy that deserves a little more credit that it gets. The vibrations aren't the strongest that I've ever felt but they are definitely not the weakest. I like it better for use with one of my smaller toys. With my very small dildo, it fits my anatomy and I am able to enjoy the full benefits of the vibration patterns internally and externally. The vibrations aren't the strongest but it works. This is going to be a great toy to experiment with in foreplay!

extremely useful review


The Noa by LELO is designed for use by couples. Noa is a U shaped toy that inserts into the vagina and delivers amazing stimulation to both partners during intercourse. The thinner non vibrating end inserts inside the vagina to stimulate the G Spot and his penis during penetration whilst the vibrating end stimulates her clitoris.

My partner gave my Noa another name, He called it - Pretty fly for a Small Guy. As soon as he said that, I had the Offspring song in my head called pretty fly for a white guy. After that moment, that song was stuck in my head so it became my title. I never call my sex toys by female names, I always seem to find a guy name for them.

The day that my package came, I was overly excited! I was eager to try it out as soon as I opened the UPS box.

When I first opened up the package and took it out, I noted that it is a very flexible toy. The velvety silicone was very smooth and it has such a beautiful color to it. Pink toys are some of my favorite things. I really adore the color. It looks like a perfect hot pink.

I have added a diagram to give you an idea how the Noa is intended to work.

The Noa can also be used as a purely external toy, providing pinpoint clitoral stimulation exactly where you want it, in any position that you need. The Noa provides moderate power that you can use any time and any place!

I will now give a little insight on how this worked for us below:

We decided to give it a try and see how well it worked for us, in the case of the partner play, my guy was just a little too large for this to work out in our favor. If your guy or toy is very large in girth, you may have to use a lot of lube to get it to work. Also, the clitoral arm may not match up with where your clitoris is or how far that the arm will extend to fit into the position that you need.

I took out the directions and read how to charge my Noa. You must unscrew the vibrating portion and insert the white plug into it and stick the USB into a computer tower, laptop, or charging cube. It does not have a AC charging plug on the end. It only has a USB charging port. The charging cord is 13" in length.

The toy itself was used for us first for partner play. I cleaned it off thoroughly with my toy cleaner and then we got out the lube. I knew that if I was going to try to fit this in and my partner at the same time, for the review; I had to be really lubed up, so I grabbed out Sliquid organics and decided to try out my new toy!

My partner is well endowed so I knew before beginning that there were going to be issues. I had to look at the directions to see how to charge it and how it came apart for me to charge it. I didn't want to unknowingly twist the wrong thing and break something. I opened up the directions and read everyone carefully.

Upon opening the manual for the first time and actually reading all of it, the front pages talk about the warranty information and how to download the User manual to get more information than these booklets provide. It also talks about how to register for the warranty, cleaning, storage, safety, and disposal information.

Over on the second page, it states to fully charge the Noa before its first use and only use the original chargers provided by LELO, this is highlighted in bold in the booklet, so make sure to follow these instructions. The Noa does arrive with a small amount of charge but not enough to get the full vibrations of the toy. I wouldn't want to mess up the internal charging system by draining the battery before its first charge.

This toy is very travel friendly because it is so small and lightweight. It weighs at 12. ounces. I weighed it with my digital postal scale.

Another use that I should mention is that it can provide nipple stimulation for both sexes. It can also stimulate the anus or taint area as well. Just be extra careful if sharing and use a condom with each use and thoroughly clean before and after each use.

To charge the Noa, you just unscrew the bulbous, vibrating part from the silver band. Once you have it unscrewed, you will have two separate pieces. The vibrating piece has a screw part on the inside of the toy and it is solid white plastic with a hole in the middle for the wire to attach for the charger. You simply plug the charger into this hole. Inside of the white plastic, you will see a very small port. The plug goes in there. On the flatter piece of the Noa, it is a dark fuchsia type coloring and this screws back onto the white piece. I don't see any removable seals or rings inside except around the white part, there is a tiny raised band of silicone and I would say that this is probably the acting seal to keep it waterproof. Once you put the charger into the port, plug the cord into your device of choice, such as laptop, charging cube, computer tower, etc. The Noa takes about 2hrs to fully charge and while the Noa is charging there is a light on the top of it which lights up pink to let you know that it's in charge mode.

Once the Noa is fully charged the pink light will change to a white light to show you that it's fully charged. If the light starts to flash rapidly during use, it means that it needs charging again or the battery is getting too low to use.

Material / Texture

The main material of the Noa is Silicone. Silicone is on the highest level on the safety scale. It is rated a 10. The second material on the Noa is the silver ABS plastic band that runs around the circumference of the vibrating portion. It is in the middle area of the toy. The plastic is an 8 on the safety scale.

Here is some information on the plastic:

Synthetic or semi synthetic polymerization product

Non-porous and phthalate-free material with a firm, smooth textures

Hygiene And Maintenance
Can easily be cleaned with antibacterial soap and hot water or by wiping down with isopropyl alcohol.

Water, Oil, Silicone

Here is some information on Silicone and its components:

Material safety


Semi-organic polymer, man-made material known for wide-ranging stability and water repellence.


Silicone has a tight molecular structure and retains heat. Try to soak a silicone toy (make sure it's waterproof) in the warm water before using it to get nice warm feeling. Silicone also repels dirt and bacteria and doesn't fall apart with extended friction.

Hygiene And Maintenance
Silicone is smooth and not porous. Silicone can be fully disinfected by boiling it for 3 minutes or by throwing it into the top rack of your dishwasher.

Use only water based lubricants with Silicone sex toys.

The texture of the Noa is very silky smooth feeling. It has no textured areas and doesn't feel rough on the internal or external areas of the body. There are seams that run along each edge of the ABS plastic. I didn't feel any of these seams while it was placed on my clitoris. LELO made sure to mold these to the perfect shape of the toy.

In the past, other toys that I have purchased, had seams that were scratchy and that was a definite turn off. With this luxury toy, everything seems to fit perfectly. The Noa would work for anyone and I really mean anyone. This was made to be a couples toy but my guy used it tonight solo and he loved the smoothness of it. There is absolutely no smell with silicone. There may have been a slight odor when it first arrived due to being new but once it's washed the first time, I didn't encounter any odors. I did do the taste test for you all after I washed it. There was no taste. It's pretty safe in my book! I love the feel of it and I actually had it in my hand for a bit while reviewing the product and I found myself twirling the Noa in my hands because I liked the feel of it.

The Noa is safe to use with waterbased lubricants but DO NOT use a silicone lubricant with the Noa as it is made from silicone, most silicone toys and lubes don't mix. I would advise using water based lubricants with the Noa during sex to prevent the toy insert easily.
    • Flexible
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

This little guy is perfect for my child sized hands. My partner joked on me and said that I finally found a product to fit in my hands. I really do have small hands.

The design is unique and I've never tried any toy like this before. It was all new to me and I like the style a lot. It's not a big and bulky toy that I would be intimidated by. I like the shape of it and I really like how flexible that it is. The U-shape bends easily, back and forth. The look is very artsy and sleek.

The Noa is shaped for the penis to slide in and out of the vagina without it being uncomfortable for the female, always insert the Noa before starting intercourse to prevent any discomfort or bruising of the vaginal walls.

The Noa would be great for beginners to advanced users. It's really more about the anatomy of the male and female or the size and girth of the penis or toy. I had a few problems as I mentioned before because my guy is large and the toy just wouldn't work with him and the toy inside at the same time.

I tried it out with a very small toy and it worked for me. The thrusting didn't hurt but it was an extremely tight fit in there. I didn't feel strong vibrations on the inside from the toy, although, they were felt from both areas in my palm while I was holding it in my hand. I think the pressure from the dildo extended the flat arm away too far for it to be felt inside.

I actually liked using it as a clitoral toy during intercourse. What I did was hold onto the flat part of the Noa while my partner was behind me. I held onto it as if I were holding a cup of coffee and my thumb was not on the toy. I used the toy that way to tease my clitoris myself and I was able to apply as much pressure as I wanted in this position. It was nice to try something different. My ultimate favorite part to hold the Noa during sex was to just hold the vibrating part against my clitoris by the top of the curve. This action allowed my partner to feel some of the vibrations from the Noa while he was inside and the Noa was only on the outside.

Now, this is probably going to throw your for a loop. My partner liked using it solo. Are you asking yourself how he liked using it? I'm about to tell you. He was so intrigued by the new toy that he picked it up a few times today while we were talking about it and started turning it on and asking me how to use it. I told him to put it on himself and see if he liked the vibrations. I didn't have to ask how he liked it because the next few minutes, there was a rise in the Levi's. I started laughing and wanted to see if this new toy would fulfill his needs. I told him that it was more of a research thing and that I wanted to see how it worked so I could let my readers know how it worked for men. It worked, alright. I got him to use it while he was pleasuring himself. He called it his new age cock ring. What I did to get it to work on him was, I took the Noa and sort of hung it off of his penis from the side, sort of like the letter C. I put the flatter part on top and nestled the bottom between the shaft and balls. I immediately got a moan of pleasure from him once I turned it on. It did tend to try to vibrate off at some point but I just moved it back down where he needed it while he did the rest of the work. Once he had his climax and I removed it from his shaft, he told me that it felt like a part of his penis was detached because the vibrations were strong for him and he really liked it and then when I removed it, it left a feeling of emptiness. We both laughed at that point. After he cleaned himself up, he made sure to tell me that he did in fact like that toy and the orgasm that he got from it. I asked him if it was stronger and his answer was yes. Even though, this toy didn't work out for my couples play, it worked out in many other ways that are just as satisfying. I will admit that we are pretty creative when it comes to new ways of using toys.

Functions / Performance / Controls

To turn the Noa on, first you have to press the power button on the top of the vibrator twice,it is a faintly seen circle button that is the same color as the toy. There is no seam around the button, it is made solid into the full piece. Each time you press the button the light will flash and it will then turn on with a constant vibration, the Noa doesn't keep track of the last setting used, it will always start with the constant vibration first and then cycle through to the other settings.

Below, I have listed the settings:

1. A constant vibration- 2-3 Vrooms - 2 bees

2. Pulse Same amount of Vrooms- 2 bees- ( about 3 quick pulsations each second)

3. Fast pulse - 2-3 vrooms ( About 4 quick pulsations each second)

4. Rollercoaster- 2-3 vrooms

5. Longer rollercoaster- 2-3 vrooms

6. Low-high pulse repeated- 2-3 vrooms

If you have the SenseMotion remote, the vibrations are exceedingly more powerful on each setting by 1-2 vrooms when used with the remote. If you are in need of more intense vibrations, I highly suggest to get the SenseMotion remote.

The light on the Noa flashes slowly when it is turned on, and fast if the battery is running out. To turn off the Noa you need to hold the power button for 5 seconds which is slightly longer than most vibrators.

The Noa has single speed but multi patterned vibrations which I would describe as medium intensity at most. It is definitely not as strong in vibrations as some of the newer similar style vibrators such as the Tiani 2 or the new We-Vibe that either has a remote with it and dual motors or just stronger vibrations all around. The Noa only has the one motor. With its one motor, it is quiet which makes it ideal for couples play in the bedroom. No one outside of the bedroom is going to hear the toy. They'll maybe hear you, but not the Noa.

The Noa is compatible with the SenseMotion remote control, although it does not come with it. You have to buy that separately. If you have one already, that's a plus! If not, you can get one from LELO. I don't have any experience with the remote yet, so I can't help out on that subject but here is some useful information, just in case you do have one or if you plan on buying one.

How To Use SenseMotion Remote Control:

LELO's SenseMotion Technology offers a different way to interact with their luxury vibrators, where vibration speed and intensity can be controlled with movement alone. This can range through tilting, shaking or sweeping the wireless controller different ways, which in turn prompts a response in your Noa. More than this, the controller mirrors the vibrations you are creating, which means you can feel what a partner is experiencing from a range of up to 12 meters/39 feet.

The single push button control on the Noa is easy to manipulate. When I bought my first Gigi from LELO, it was a very confusing 15 minutes until I figured out that I had to hold the button down in the correct pattern. Once you get used to using one of the LELO toys, the rest should be easy to use.

Care and Maintenance

When I first received the Noa, I wanted to clean it thoroughly as I do all of my other toys. I used one of my favorite toy cleaners that I purchased from here on Eden. Eden Fantasys carries a wide variety of cleaners in many sizes. Since the Noa is silicone, there is no extra special precautions that you must take as with jelly and other similar toys. A great antibacterial soap and warm water will work well to clean it right up. Make sure to rinse and dry thoroughly.

If you wanted to sterilize the Noa even further, you can clean it with a 10% bleach solution which is made up of 10 parts water to one part bleach. Just make sure that these parts are all equal amounts. Make sure to rinse thoroughly after this process. Who wants bleach on their private parts, even at a small amount?

Try not to use a very linty towel, because it does pick up lint,dust and hair easily. I love the satin pouch that comes with the Noa because it fits the cord and the toy in there and keeps it lint, dust and hair free. This will work for me when I want to take it for travel.

You can also keep it stored in the box that it arrived in. It fits in there perfectly and it was made for the Noa. I would keep it stored away from other products because it can have a bad reaction if stored with other materials that aren't compatible. If you have other toys to store with the Noa, just keep the Noa in its box and then it would be alright to do so. As long as they are not touching. Do not boil the Noa because the electrical components inside will be damaged. Do not place in a dishwasher or anything else with a very high amount of heat or cold. Don't place in a refrigerator for temperature play because some electrical components can freeze up or be damaged by the extreme cold.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The Noa arrived in a white rectangular, outer box. The box has a picture of the Noa right on the front and some information about what the product is. The back of the box talked more about the details in a small paragraph and it was in 6 different languages which filled the full back of the box.

Inside that box, there was another slide out box. The inside box had a matte finish and had no writing on it except for the word LELO in a silver, embossed lettering. The word was directly in the middle of the box. The box on the inside has a top that just pulls off from the bottom.

The box is 6- 1/4 X 3 1/3
Inside the box, there was the Noa, a product registration card, a user manual, a warranty booklet, a quick instruction sheet, a charging cord (USB style), A satin pouch and a sample of LELO's glycerin and Paraben free Personal moisturizer. All of this was packed neatly into the little white box. I just love the packaging that LELO has. It is always classy and not cheap looking.

When you open the top of the box, the Noa is on its side in a molded cutout where it fits in perfectly. Next to the Noa is the satin storage pouch and the white charging cord. It's underneath a tabbed compartment and you just pull up the top and everything is neatly stashed inside.

The top part of the box also has a compartment on the inside. This keeps the Warranty card, User manual, Warranty booklet, quick usage guide and the lubricant. All of this is tucked neatly in the top.

I'm actually going to keep this box because it is very beneficial to me with the compartments for the important paperwork. They won't fit into the pouch and I don't want to try to stuff them in there. I can keep them neat and tidy inside this small box with no problems. With the box being flat, it can sit in the bottom of my lingerie drawer with no problem.
The inner box is very discreet. If this was given to me as a gift, no one would know what was inside. I love the box, it just looks ready to be given as a gift. The box is cardboard and can be recycled.

The LELO-Noa Warranty

I don't know about you but that makes me want to buy more LELO products!

Personal comments

We set out to try again to use the Noa for partner play but once we inserted the flatter end into my vagina first, with lots of lube; he attempted to slide in under it but there was not enough room without more lube.
Once we finally used tons of lube to get the toy situated right inside of me, it was still more than a very tight fit and he couldn't get inside. I tried different positions and it still didn't work. We tried adding even more lube but that didn't help so even after those attempts failed, we found better uses for the toy.
This is ONLY because he is very large and I've never had a child out of my vagina. If your guy is average sized or if you have had children vaginally, this should be no problem for you. I liked using it better as an external clitoral device. It wasn't the strongest clitoral vibrator but it wasn't the lowest. I actually held it against my body and clitoris while we were having sex from behind and it was great. The vibrations were just perfect on my clitoris while he was thrusting. I didn't have the Noa inside, it was only on my clitoral area. The combination of both sent me over the edge.
We tried our best to use the Noa as it was intended to be used but we just couldn't make it happen.

In my experience, while having toy play with a dildo; it works better for me as it doesn't take as long to climax as if I was using the Noa alone. I tried it solo and it did take me a bit longer to climax than some of my other clitoral vibrators. It still did the job, but just not as fast as some of my other toys. That is one of the reasons why I like to switch up my toys. I don't like to use a intense vibrator on my clitoris all the time. I like to switch it up and change the patterns and intensities. This works out well in the long run because my body can adjust to different levels of enjoyment.

For me, the penetration part was painful in the partner play but we managed to get past that issue. We didn't get to fully use the toy inside with my partner, we did however, find another variety of great uses.
Follow-up commentary
I used this with my partner a few times and I have liked using it better during sex while holding it on my clitoris. it never fit inside but it works for external play!
