Gee Thanks, GIGI 2.

When LELO sends you an email asking if they can ship you their new g-spot vibrator to test, you don't say, "Oh, thanks very much, but traditionally I haven't had much luck with g-spot vibrators, so I'll pass." You just say yes. And also thank you. Anything else would be like getting a cooler of caviar shipped to you and deciding it's not really for you. So, when LELO asked if we'd like to try the GIGI 2, there was no discussion. The answer was yes. And thank you.


As I've just intimated, I have a pretty picky vagina when it comes to sex toys. But if anyone's going to convince me that a g-spot vibrator is for me, it's going to be LELO


The GIGI 2 is an update of an existing model that makes it 100% waterproof (bonus), 100% more powerful (double bonus), improves the battery life (triple bonus) and adds more vibration/rhythm combinations (maybe a bonus, but so far just kind of confusing).


This toy is meant to be a g-spot vibrator, and for that purpose it is definitely elegantly formed and well-engineered. Its flat head gives you the option of resting comfortably just inside and nudging your g-spot (definitely my preference), or sliding in further and using a massaging motion to get the job done. The vibration ranges everywhere from the faintest, gentlest, feathery whisper to a straight-up, you-going-to-come-now hum. In fact, the first time I used it on my clit (in concert with many inches of Rye from the behind), I came before I even knew what was happening. That compact little motor can WERK. 


Now, honesty time, I tried using this toy as intended a few times. It felt great, but g-spot-stimulation-only is just probably never how I will masturbate. In the end, I've ended up using this toy more on the outside than the inside, just like I have with most of the toys I've ever encountered. But there is something very special about this vibrator that has made it a quick new favorite in the Violet + Rye house: The. Flat. Head. 


Designed to make contact with more surface area on your g-spot, no doubt, it has exactly the same effect on your clit. I am sure that I don't need to tell you that more surface area = quicker, bigger, better orgasms, but I was amazed at what a big difference it actually made. If you, like me, are in possession of a willing but finicky vagina, you've probably experienced the struggle of trying to get something that's rounded to lay correctly on, well, something else that's rounded, especially if you are using a vibrator during sex. With the GIGI 2, that problem does not exist. You put it where you want it, it stays there, you come. Simple as that. 


At $119, the GIGI 2 is definitely not cheap, although it is one of the cheaper LELO options out there. Like all their toys, it's made of high-quality, body-safe materials, which we're pretty willing to pay a premium for around here. 


One note, to all sex-toy makers under the sun, that also applies to the GIGI 2: we love the ever-expanding range of rhythmic pulses that now seem to come stock on every sex toy. They are delightfully intuitive and usually organized in a way that builds us up to a delicious finish.


However, could we please, please, include a straight-up, steady vibration setting on both the beginning and end of the spectrum? By the time I've cycled through the menu of rhythmic foreplay and am on the verge of the main event, the last thing I want to do is click-click-click for 30 seconds in between. Anyone else?

  2. so google ate my comment (which, was, you know, like amazingly deep n' shit, like I usually am) and then I got totally lost in the labels we use section off to the right, and spent a good hour all wrapped up in uncommon appetites wonderpornland, and that was pretty amazing. So, hi!

    (also, agreed about finicky vaginas, clicky things at the end of stuff, etc)
