Review: Lelo Mona 2

A while back, Lelo asked me to join their affiliate program.  I’d been so busy, but I finally signed up.  I also asked if they offered any reviews and they said they’d get back to me in a few weeks.  When they did, they asked if I would like to review one of their revamped classics (Ina, Mona, and Elise) and I picked the Mona 2 to review.  Unfortunately, I have never tired the original Mona, so I cannot comment on the improvements.

The packaging

The Lelo Mona 2 comes in the standard Lelo packaging.  There is an outer sleeve that is the same color as the Mona (purple in my case).  The top of the box says Lelo, one side lists some functions of the Mona and the other side has a short description.  Both of these are listed in 6 different languages.  The bottom of the box has a full size image of the Mona.  Under the sleeve is a thick solid black box, like every other Lelo toy I have gotten.  LELO is written on the top of the box, but there is no other writing on it.  If you want, you can use this box to store the toy and charger in, since it is fairly discreet.  It also comes with a small storage bag if you don’t have a lot of space.  You also get the warranty paper and instruction booklet.

The shape of the Mona 2, from what I am aware, has not really changed.  It is about 8″ in total length and around 3.5″ are insert-able.  The insert-able portion of the Mona is made from Lelos typical super soft and silky silicone.  Where the silicone touches the plastic of the handle, the diameter is just under 1″ but it expands up to nearly 1.5″ at the widest before it tappers to a rounded point.  The shape of the shaft is not really circular, but it works wonderfully for me.  I really like how the shaft buldges out, it really lets the toy tug on my g-spot while giving me a nice full feeling.  I’ve also tried the Gigi, which didn’t not make my g-spot nearly as happy as the Mona 2 does.  As far as lube and cleaning goes, I would recommend using only a water-based lube with it.  It even comes with a small sample foil of the Lelo Personal Moisture lube.  It’s also pretty easy to clean, just use soap and water, toy cleaner (Lelo makes that too), or bleach it.  There is a slight seam where the silicone connects to the plastic that you maybe want to give a good extra scrub every now and then though.

The Mona 2

The Mona 2 is rechargeable just like the original, but with a few changes.  One change is that it is now fully water-proof.  My guess is that, like the Siri, the jack that the charge plugs into was not covered on the original.  The Mona 2 has a silicone strap and plug that keeps the jack sealed.  It still uses the same charger as most other LELO toys, so if you have multiple, give the labels a quick check and you can probably stash a few of the chargers.  The other big change is that the motor is said to have 100% more power.  Since I don’t have an original to compare it to, I can only describe what it feels like now.  The vibrations are the same deep type of vibration as other Lelo toys and it does seem to be quite a bit stronger than the Gigi.  While this is a g-spot toy, I have frequently used it just externally because the vibrations are just how I like them.  Internally, I’m a bit more indifferent about the vibrations.  The vibrations are also on a continuum, so you can get a decently range between the high and low.

Much like the Siri, there are four buttons.  The + and – buttons control the speed of vibration.  You turn the toy on with the + and pushing or pushing and holding the plus will increase the speed.  Pushing or holding the – will decrease the speed and eventually turn it off.  There are also two arrow buttons.  When the Mona 2 is turned on, it will be in the solid vibration pattern, but pushing the up arrow will go to the first pattern.  There are five patterns (excluding the solid vibration) and the last pattern is the signature Lelo song pattern.

Overall, I quite enjoy the Lelo Mona 2.  The shape of it works much better for me than the Gigi for g-spot stimulation and I really enjoy the vibrations.  I’ve found the Mona 2 to be a very versatile toy, since I can use it externally or internally.  I also found it was great to use with a partner.  If you have the original Mona, but wish it had a bit more power and could take a bath with you, then I highly recommend trying out the Mona 2.  If you’ve never tried the Mona, but have always wanted to or wanted to try any Lelo, I would definitely go for the Mona 2 as well.  I think currently the Mona 2 is my all time favorite Lelo toy.

    The reason the Mona 2 and the other revamped Lelo toys are waterproof isn’t to do with the silicone plug (the original versions we carry at my store all have the plugs) but because Lelo has found a way to seal off the charging port from the rest if the electronics in the toy- so, theoretically, you could have it on, with the silicone plug open, and under water and it would be fine, though generally I don’t usually think fully immersing any electronic device is a bad idea, no matter the precautions taken. I think they have a blog post about the specifics.
