Sex Toy Review: Lelo Ina, A Different Kind Of Rabbit Vibrator

Sunday, April 3rd, 2011

Despite the Ina’s deceptively understated design, its function and shape have everything to do with maximum sensual satisfaction. Lelo is a company whose design aesthetic is consistently the perfect marriage of beauty, quality and functionality; with the Ina they have developed a luxurious dual action vibrator with a discreet, sophisticated look and the most intricately choreographed stimulation modes on the market.

Description and Materials

A newer member to Lelo’s Femme line of adult pleasure objects, the Ina is a multi-talented dual action vibrator with a shape that’s reminiscent of the traditional ‘rabbit’ vibrator. The Ina is made of a combination of materials: a velvety, phthalates-free high grade silicone that’s draped over a rigid body, and a shiny ABS plastic for the handle. The massager is a mid-sized vibrator that stands at 7.8 inches long with an insertable length of 3.5 inches. The available colors to choose from are a vibrant red, purple, or lime green.

The Ina’s S-shaped dimensions are practically identical to the Mona with the exception that it has a clitoral stimulator attached to its tapered middle. With such a lightweight (4.6 ounces to be exact), ergonomic design, it fits perfectly in the palm of your hand and is extremely easy to maneuver. It’s powered by a rechargeable built-in lithium ion battery, which affords up to 4 hours of play time from a mere 2 hours worth of charging; it also has a 90 day long stand-by period. There’s also a very useful self-locking feature that’s designed to prevent accidental activation.

How it Works

The massager contains two individually operated motors, one at the clitoris and one located near the g-spot, controlled with an intuitively designed, built-in interface. The 4 button control pad easily regulates speed and stimulation modes, giving the user precise control over sensations. The eight pre-programmed pleasure modes are the crowning glory, ranging from continuous, soft flutter … to intense pulsation. A few of them are so elaborately synchronized that the sensations oscillate, heighten and pulsate between the pleasure points like a finely tuned harmony.

Packaging & Storage

The packaging is nothing short of spectacular. The outer casing is a cardboard sleeve with an attractive, yet understated, design and sports a color scheme that complements the color of your Ina. Sliding it off reveals an elegant gift box, reminiscent of one that normally only encases precious jewelery. Also included is a luxurious satin pouch for safe-keeping, a multi language user manual, and a charger – as well as Lelo’s one year warranty agreement.

Cleaning & Maintenance

Lelo Ina

Proper care and maintenance will greatly increase the function and lifespan of this product. First, only use water based lubricants since silicone based varieties can potentially make the toy’s surface permanently tacky. Secondly, wash the toy before and after every use with hypoallergenic soap and warm water, making sure to rinse it off with hot water and patting it dry with a lint-free towel. However, take care to avoid submerging the toy into water; it is not waterproof and getting the inside of the DC socket wet may damage its operation.


Now we get to the good stuff. Thanks to Lelo’s ingenuity and excellent engineering, the Ina has eight of the most finely tuned stimulation

modes ever. Not only are these options impressive, they can also be turned up to high levels of intensity, answering the call of buzz-hungry users who need a tad more throttle than a run-of-the-mill vibrator can offer. However, sensitive users need not be intimidated as the Ina is still capable of offering the precise control and gentler speeds that Lelo is known for.

The shape of the body is absolutely ideal for tantalizing the g-spot and the shaft’s rigidity offers more control and adjustability. Another positive point is that the vibration is well distributed throughout the body of the toy, being most concentrated at both pleasure points – but without spilling over to the handle (that would inadvertently give one’s hand too much vibe).

One downside of the Ina is that it is not waterproof, and at the price it’d be nice to have the option of shower play. Another smaller drawback to consider is that the clitoral stimulator is a tad stiff and presses quite firmly against the erogenous zone; luckily, its hardness does relax a bit after repeated use.


Despite the fact that the Ina is quiet powerful, it is still among the quietest vibrators available on the adult toy market. When set to higher speeds, or the more complex program modes, the frequency is somewhat audible emitting a medium pitched frequency, but its sound is hardly enough to distract or irritate.

Lelo Ina

Long Term Appeal

Those who love the function and feel of a dual action vibrator will be nothing less than thrilled with its performance. Rest assured that the Ina, like most other Lelo pleasure products, will consistently keep you very satisfied.


The cost of the Ina is on the higher side. However, its dependability, performance and innovative construction make it well worth the investment in the end. And as a consolation, you never have to pay for batteries.

Final Thoughts

You’ll have no regrets saying, “The Ina is ‘a-mine-a’.” Its unparalleled pleasure modes, gratifyingly sensual ergonomic shape and superior construction make this adult plaything a top rated pick. We rate it at top-notch 10/10.

Jacqueline Hellyer: 3 Kinds Of Sex Couples Need To Have

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

I like to divide sex in a long-term relationship into three types:

Cup Of Tea Sex – simple and comforting
Sensual Sex – luscious and bonding
Spicy Sex – exciting and adventurous

Cup of Tea Sex…

is that nice snuggle under the covers, nothing unexpected, nothing wild. You know each other, you know what works, you have a satisfying time. No great fireworks, but it’s good. Like a cup of tea: simple, warm and comforting.

But a sexual diet of just Cup of Tea sex is pretty dull. And if there’s not a good connection, it will feel empty.

Sensual Sex…

is when you take the time to create a gorgeous atmosphere and take the time to enjoys each others’ bodies in a sensual and loving manner. In this way the sex becomes very connecting, very bonding, very deep. This is the essence of Tantric sex, and with practice can lead to ecstatic states of being.

Which is wonderful and wholesome, but can do with some spicing up at times.

Spicy Sex…

is when you push your boundaries and do things that you find a real turn on (if a little intimidating!). What that is will depend on you and your own desires.

Spicy Sex could be as simple as introducing a sex toy to your sexual play, or starting with a slow striptease. It could be planning a weekend away and then visiting the vineyards knowing you or your partner has no knickers on. It could be visiting a sex store and bringing home something new and unusual (now how does this bondage tape work…) It could be visiting a swingers lounge. It could be having a nude dinner party, either the two of you alone or inviting friends… The possibilities are endless.  But keep in mind that Spicy Sex doesn’t just ‘happen’, it requires your creativity and your intention.

Now, given the reality of modern lives, it’s unlikely that every sexual encounter is going to be Spicy Sex. (Apart from the time involved, it would be like eating gourmet food all the time, which can get a little wearying.) Depending on your circumstances,  Spicy Sex could be an annual weekend away,  or it could be a monthly ‘challenge’ where you take it in turns to create a “Spicy Saturday In”.

However, if you think Spicy Sex is the great aim, you’ll have trouble getting there without the Sensual Sex. Because as I’ve so often written about before, I believe that for a couple to be open enough with each other that they can be real about their desires, they have to be truly open to each other, and you need sensual connection for that. I encourage couples at least once a week, to have a sexual encounter that focuses on the sensual. Start with a bath, light candles, play music that moves your soul, spend time touching each other, hold each others’ gaze as you move slowly together in intercourse. Experience the ecstatic sensations of the valleys of sex, rather than the intense peaks. Feel the yumminess of it all. Experiment with blindfolds or restraint to heighten the sensory arousal, add sensory elements of taste, sound, touch and smell. Really lose yourselves in the experience.

So, maybe you could aim for Spicy Sex once a month, Sensual Sex once a week and Cup of Tea Sex once or twice a week. I can’t be prescriptive though. So let’s say plenty of nice Cup of Tea Sex, regular Sensual Sex, all interspersed with some Spicy Sex.

Having said that, the three categories don’t have to be mutually exclusive. A late night quickie under the covers is Cup of Tea Sex, but it can also feel very sensual if for example you light a candle by the bed and look into your partners eyes as you make love.  Or a quickie in the bathroom while your kids are having their porridge can certainly have elements of  Spice (a la naughty teenagers trying not be caught). Ideally a Sensual Sex session will be highly erotic and you can swing between the intensities of the peaks of sex and the exquisiteness of the valleys.

It’s all good! So allow for all types of sex in your life, from the simple to the spicy (whatever that is for you) and you’ll keep your sexual connection strong and your life so much more satisfying.
