Review: Lelo Ella

This review has taken me forever to get around to writing.  I received the Lelo Ella from PinkCherry.com to review and I really wanted to love it and for it to be THE toy to help me achieve my first g-spot orgasm, but it just wasn’t for my body.

The Run Down:

  • Toy Type: In-ie
  • Manufacturer: Lelo
  • Materials: Silicone
  • Size: 7″ long, about 1″ wide
  • Price: $39.99
  • Pros: Heavy duty box that can be used for storage; Satin storage bag; 100% silicone and very easy to clean
  • Cons: Angle or head (or something) is not right for me; Was not the key to my g-spot that I had hoped
  • Overall Rating: 3/5
  • Recommended: Yes

Resting in her sturdy box

Like all Lelo products, the Ella came in a small very sturdy black box that was in a colored sleeve.  The sleeve will match the color of the product that you buy, which I think is kind of neat.  The box has a hard plastic insert that you can rest your Ella in, but you also get a white satin storage bag that you can keep her in as well.  The box measures 3 1/2″ x 10″ x 1 1/2″ and if you remove the plastic insert you have a good bit of storage space to get a few other toys.

The Ella is a very simple toy.  Since it is 100% silicone it is very easy to clean.  You can wash it with soap and water, toy clean, bleach it, boil it, or even put it in your dishwasher.  I find that the silicone is very velvety soft and it doesn’t appear to attract much lint.  It also doesn’t create much drag, but a small bit of a water-based lube can easy in insertion.

The Ella boost itself in being a double ended dildo.  It’s 7″ long and either end can be inserted.  The straight end gives you about 5″ of insert-able length with a maximum diameter of 1 1/4″.  Using the straight end allows you to hold onto the curved head which can aid in someone’s grip of the toy.  If you use the curved end you can get about 3 1/2″ in insert-able length.  The curved head is about 1 1/2″ wide.  This curved head is designed to stimulate your g-spot.

Lelo Ella, another angle

Like I said, I really wanted to love Ella.  I have tried many options but have had no real luck with my g-spot.  I would like to have a partner try this on, as perhaps it is the angle I use it, but the curve feels like too much for me.  Perhaps it is the shape of the head, a more rounded head may work better than me, but I can’t really put my finger on what it is that I don’t like about it.  I do want to try playing with it a bit more, but the Ella was not the key to my g-spot that I had so hoped it would be.

Overall, the Lelo Ella is a great dildo.  Some may not feel that it is not wide enough, but this toy isn’t meant to stretch you out, but to stimulate your g-spot.  I feel that this may work wonderfully for some people, though it didn’t quiet work for me.  I think perhaps my expectations were much too high.  The Ella is available in three beautiful colors from PinkCherry.com.
