I’ll be the first to admit that sex toys, in general, are not the most attractive of things. Whilst I recognise they are extremely useful in serving their purpose, as objects d’art they have a long way to go. Take the rampant rabbit – it looks like it’s about to take off, and despite the clitoral ‘ears’ being the reason behind the naming of the toy, do we really need to be quite so literal and actually have them as rabbit ears, either this is a marketing ploy to get middle-aged housewives from Surrey to loosen up over a glass of Chablis at an Anne Summers party or the product designers have having a good laugh on all, orgasm-wanting women of the world.
And, attention all sex toy designers, vibrators don’t actually have to look like the real thing. Drunk as we may be on occasion, it’s fairly clear to recognise the difference between a cock and a vibrator – so less of the ‘realist’ veins and foreskin please, neither of which make vibrators look anything less than completely revolting.
Now saying that, I am indeed a girl who loves a vibrator.
Quick, straight to the point and highly effective. Functionality scores highly, design-wise? Not so much.
It is with this in mind then, that I was thrilled a few years ago, and still continue to be delighted, by the product LELO. *Finally* an intimate lifestyle brand which not only delivers with exceptional quality (and high-speed vibrations that remain unrivalled to date) but actually look sexy.
My recent enjoyment comes (ahem) courtesy of the INA Wave ‘Inspired by the caress of a lover’s fingers, INA Wave™ surges in a ‘come-hither’ motion to massage your G-Spot, while ultra-powerful vibrations assure a blended climax crashes over you.’
Don’t mind if I do.
the Porsche of the sex toy field – sleek, beautify designed and if the word ‘classy’ can be used for a sex toy, then yes, damn classy too. A little more expensive perhaps than your usual brand but totally worth the investment.
I love this brand for successfully managing to combine innovative design with amazing functionality (read: orgasms) and for bringing sex toys forward, making them less of a gimmicky addition to a bunk up and more something that you wouldn’t mind leaving on a coffee table (NB. I’m not quite that brave yet, not even for LELO)
If you want a vibrator that doesn’t look like a cartoon character, make you cringe, or put you off real life willies forever, the INA wave is spot on.
Now if you’ll excuse me I have work to do … well it would be rude not to research.
