If someone walked up to me and said “I can only buy one sex toy to last me the rest of my life, what should I buy?” I would first offer my sincerest condolences (one toy for the rest of forever?!?!?) and then tell them to buy the Lelo Mona 2. It is high quality, body safe, powerful, rechargeable, and versatile; everything I love about toys and more.
When I first developed an interest in sex toys I spent a lot of time looking at Lelo toys and I had a major crush on the Gigi, I mean, didn’t everybody? I was worried about the size though, it seemed too short, so when Lelo released the Mona a few months later my hopeful puppy eyes shifted in that direction. For some reason though, I never actually took the leap and bought the Mona. A few years later, in response to consumer feedback, Lelo choose to release second generations of some of their most popular toys including: Liv, Gigi, Elise, Ina, and yes the Mona.1 I had already acquired a substantial collection at this point and decided it was finally time to give Mona a shot.
The Mona 2 arrives in the same lovely packaging that most Lelo toys arrive in. The color of the outer box is the same as the shaft of the toy, and inside is a black heavy duty cardboard box. Remove the lid and you will find your Mona sitting inside a fancy felt tray, the charger, instructions, a small storage bag, an “authenticity card”2 and a sample of Lelo’s overpriced lubricant.
I quickly set up my new toy to charge, but not before slipping it between my legs and gleefully prancing through the house yelling about how perfectly it cradled my vulva. Seriously, the shape of this thing is damn near perfect for my body, the shaft curves comfortably around my pubic bone so that the bulge in the shaft sits right in between my labia at the vaginal opening and my clit is nestled into the curve. While this feels fantastic, it doesn’t allow for comfortable penetration, luckily the toy feels equally good if I side it back so my clit is resting on the bulge allowing adequate room for penetration. I have even found that I can create pinpoint stimulation but using the very tip of the toy.
Even before I had it charged and powered on this toy felt fantastic on my skin. The shaft/insertable portion of this toy is made of Lelo’s silky smooth silicone which feels lovely against the skin, offers almost no drag, and isn’t an magnet of ungodly strength for dust and cat hair. In addition to all of that it has all the traits we love about silicone: easy to clean, non-porous, and body safe. The handle is plastic, which is also body safe and easy to clean, but the choice to have a different material on the handle does create a seam between the shaft and the handle. I’m not sure if it was a conscious decision or not, but the seam seems much less pronounced on my Mona 2 than it is on my Siri which is nice and makes cleaning much easier.
Once it was fully charged I was finally able to toy around with the vibrations, and was a bit dismayed at first. See, when advertising the Mona 2, Lelo used the “double the powah!” claim that many second generation toys tout, and while holding it in my hand, it almost seemed as if my Siri was more powerful. Luckily, my clit is much more discerning than my hands, and when I used it for the first time I realized that the Mona was not less powerful than the Siri, but more rumbly. The vibrations penetrate my whole vulva to stimulate the internal portions of my clitoris as well as the tip and bring me to a leg-twitching orgasm every time.
I can also use this toy during partnered play, though I do need to be careful because the shaft is very firm and it is easy to bump or grind it uncomfortably into my partners pelvis depending on the position we’re in. If I am able to avoid that though, this toy is actually powerful enough that I can use the toy externally and my partner is able to feel it from inside me, which is pretty damn cool.
All this talk about clitoral use, and you may have forgotten (or assumed that I had) that the Mona 2 is actually a G-Spot toy. And hell, this might shock you, but I’m about to tell you about how awesome it is at that too. The first time I used this toy I was amazed at how well it fit me internally, I mean this whole toy fits me so well I’m starting to wonder if the people at Lelo are sneaking in to measure me in my sleep. The curve slides right up behind my pubic bone and rests comfortably at my G-spot without grinding into my pubic bone. Then I turn on the vibrations and Oh-Dear-God it’s fantastic. They are so rumbly and powerful that they tend to outshine whatever is on my clit, but if I do play with something powerful on my clit as well I get the vibrations bouncing back and forth across the internal legs of my clit and my G-Spot and it’s ah-mazing.3 The combination of the firm material and intense vibrations almost invariably result in a strong, squirty, messy orgasm; whether I want it or not.
As if there isn’t enough things I love about this toy, Lelo also happens to have one of my favorite control interfaces. It’s simple, easy to use, and even easier to understand. The (+) and (-) buttons control the speeds from “hey is this this thing on?” all the way to to “holy shit!”; hold down (+) to turn it on and (-) to turn it off. The (^) and (v) buttons control the patterns, of which there are six. Within each pattern you can adjust the strength of the vibrations using the (+) and (-) buttons. I’m not a huge fan of patterns, so I usually stick with the constant speed, but the final pattern is randomized with no gap in vibrations so I think that one is pretty cool as well. The only thing I wish was that the vibration patterns were programmed in as a loop so that I could push (v) while I was on the first setting I would wind up on the sixth, but this is not the case.
The Lelo Mona 2 is available at SheVibe and it is worth every penny! Go buy it now! Not sure if you’ve figured this out or not yet, but I love this toy! Since I got it there have been few, if any, play times in which the Mona 2 has not made an appearance. There is almost nothing this toy can’t do, it makes an awesome clitoral stimulator, feels great as a G-Spot toy, works well for use with a partner, is waterproof for play in the shower or tub, and could even be sanitized if you wanted to use it for anal stimulation (but externally only as it does not have a flared base). Even if it doesn’t fit your body as perfectly as it does mine, the vibrations are wonderful and there will be at least one of the many uses that works for you.
