Today I am reviewing the Lelo Gigi 2. This is my first item from luxury Swedish brand Lelo.
When I took it out of the sleeve it was in a sturdy black box that (with the foam packing removed) would make a great storage box. Included in the box was a storage pouch, charger, and even a little sachet of lube. I like it when companies include a storage bag for toys.
I was impressed by the soft touch, almost silky feel of the silicone, and I loved the colour; a nice pale grey. The Lelo Gigi 2 is fully waterproof, I admit to rechecking this information when I saw the charging ‘hole’ in the bottom of the toy, and I think you would need to be very careful to allow this to dry out befre charging it. The Lelo Gigi 2 is 6.5 inches long, with an insertable length of just 4 inches before you get to the silver band. At its widest part it measures 4 inches in circumference, and the insertable end is almost tapered making insertion a bit easier if you’re not used to anything bigger.
The controls are a small click-wheel which I found easy to operate while using, although they would be better positioned to the side, the plastic base can also get very slippery while the toy is being used. Another nice feature is that the controls can be locked, which would make it great for travelling. To lock/unlock you just hold down the centre of the click-wheel for 5 seconds. The outer edge of the click-wheel also flashes while the Lelo Gigi 2 is charging, and glows solid when it is fully charged. You should get about 2 hours play from one charge, I found with it on the highest setting it was closer to 90 minutes.
My first impressions were that it was smaller than I expected. It actually looked quite…delicate feels like the wrong word maybe petite is better. I thought the flat shaping on the head might be good for external stimulation because I like a more diffuse vibration on my clit. And while I thought it was quite slender I thought the shape would hit my g-spot nicely. It has 8 vibration patterns, and the power can be adjusted in each setting. It was also very quiet, not at all audible from the next room, or even from under a duvet.
It turned out I was right about the shape. For external use the flattened head rested nicely against my clit and the vibrations were quite deep and rumbly. For internal use it thrusted easily, the fact that it was so slender actually gave me more space to wiggle it. I found the best way for me was to keep it inside and use a sort of rocking motion to hit my g-spot.
However, it failed to get me off. Even on the highest power setting it just kept building without ever getting me to the finish, and once it was inside me I could barely feel the vibrations at all. Yes, it was good for ‘massaging’ my g-spot but the vibrations added nothing to that for me. I do have to say I am a bit of a power-queen though. I like good strong, deep, rumbly vibrations, and this was so close to managing it.
I think this would be good for;
- people who want a shorter insertable length
- people who want a more slender g-spot vibrator
- people who don’t want a really strong vibrator
Overall, this was a perfectly adequate vibrator. It is a good quality, well-made vibrator. It was almost slient, insertable, had g-spot friendly shape, lots of patterns, and deep vibrations. But it wasn’t for me, I need stronger vibrations. It’s not a toy I will reach for again. I have other vibrators that do the job better.
