Lelo is one of the best companies to create a really aesthetic sex toy over the last few years. It is also a very controversial company simply because of decision making and because some sex toys didn’t really succeed and meet the expectations of the client. It isn’t a secret that many sex toy companies have failed in the past because let’s be honest it is hard to please everyone especially when it comes to giving pleasure. We all have different needs and preferences. What we aren’t able to do is take away what they have done right; the Lelo Soraya is one of the best things they have ever done.
What type of vibrator is it?
The Soraya happens to be a rabbit vibrator and it may not be liked by all. That is because a rabbit vibrator has the biggest potential to really disappoint someone because it may not fit all body types and needs. The biggest success will depend on it being right for the customer and the Soraya has done just that. The shape really works with basically all body types.
Soraya size, design and usage tips
So what is the issue? Nothing actually. Most rabbits won’t allow the clitoral arm to reach your clit because it is too long. If the shaft happens to be too short, then you aren’t getting the internal sensations like they should be. So, Soraya meets in the middle. The insertable piece is only 5 inches and it is barely 2 inches wide. The external arm isn’t short at all. It is 2 inches long and it reaches perfectly. The best part is that you can just adjust the arm to better reach your clit with just your finger. A lot of people complain about the loop in the handle, but I think it is amazing. It is very comfortable to hold and is perfect for using on a partner or yourself. It allows for a better grip and it is easier on your hands. You can even use a finger or thumb to press the vibrator upwards to cause different sensations. This may make your finger go numb, but if you are having the orgasm of a lifetime, who cares. Another way that I have found it works great for me is lying on my stomach. It presses the clitoral arm right where it needs to be and then cross your legs or just holding them together really gives you a closer fit.
Here’s a short video so you can see the Lelo Soraya in action.
The Soraya comes with what you would expect from a high end vibrator. It is made from an extremely smooth, silky feeling silicone. It is 100% body safe and has the Insignia signature look. It won’t smudge and it isn’t rugged. There is nothing between the seam between materials that will feel uncomfortable. Now there are some crevices where your juices or lube may dry up in and you can easily clean it with just using a soft bristled toothbrush and soapy water or sex toy cleaner.
Soraya is completely waterproof. So feel free to get your freak on in that bubble bath or shower. It may look kind of freaky at first, but it is because the power port is exposed, so you think that you shouldn’t have water near it. Lelo worked hard to ensure that it will work for you and that feature is amazing. So, take that bubble bath.
As mentioned before it is rechargeable, which is a big deal these days. It does take 2 hours to fully charge. Lelo claims that it has up to 4 hours of play. I wouldn’t know because I use it on high and it gives me almost 3 hours of play without having to charge it. If that isn’t good enough, you can always plug it in and use it while it is charging. I personally won’t do that because I am scared to be electrocuted during sex and have myself a shockingly good time.
This Lelo toy is very travel friendly. It has the signature black satin bag for storage and since it is made from silicone it won’t change shape or even react chemically to other types of toys. It even has a travel lock that is a real life saver when you are traveling in airports and it is in your purse. So you don’t have to worry about it turning and making some noise when you don’t want it to.
The best part about the Soraya is that is very powerful but quiet. Even when you have it on super high speeds and it is rumbly it is quite quiet. It does have 2 motors that work independently. There is a motor in the shaft and then one in the clitoral arm. You can have just the vibration in you, or just on the clit, or both. It comes with a variety of patterns as well as three settings. You are able to go through the patterns simply by pressing the middle button but you will have to go through all the motions to find the one you want or you want to go back to a mode you found interesting. You are able to adjust the power to how you want it. You can start out slow and it is great who are just getting into sex toys and if you are an experienced power queen like me, you might be left wanting a bit more.
Lelo is a premium brand and for a premium vibrator you have to pay a premium price. Visit the official Soraya page to check the price.
This is a great toy for beginners and even for those who like to build up to their orgasm. This will always be one of my favorite toys. It was the first toy I had to ever give me a blended orgasm and it taught me that I love dual stimulation. It looks amazing and it doesn’t look intimidating. It is slim and it can be used for a few hours and it has never left me feeling sore or with any of those nasty friction burns. The one thing I certainly love about Lelo is that their toys come with a 1-year warranty and this is a toy that I certainly recommend to anyone who is new to the vibrator game.
