What she says
I really love the colour of the LIV 2 I received. The matte bright green silicone, silver shiny detail and cream control centre look so stylish and sexy! The silicone is super-soft and in a nice, curved, ergonomic shape, which I can see even before using will be great for touching the G-spot.
Turning on the power, the + button turns the vibe on and turns up by pressing and holding or clicking through + or – to get to the intensity you want. Then simply scroll through the 8 settings to find the right pattern! Easy! When I first try out a vibrator, I like to crank up the intensity on continuous vibration. Of course I try out the others, but this is always the one I go back to.
The thing is with vibrators that are only inserted and don’t have an attachment, is that I can never really feel anything much when it’s inserted!! I can feel them, don’t get me wrong, but they just don’t pack the same punch as on the clitoris. So used on its own, this vibe doesn’t do loads for me. Teamed up with another vibrator, however, this vibe is perfect. I Used it with the new ORA 2 to get the best effect.
The curve is perfect against the G-spot for me. Give it a little wiggle and I could feel it right away. The smooth silicone is just amazing and glides when covered with water-based lubricant. The controls are easy to work when you can touch but you can’t see which is always good. I like these controls, but not as much as the Insignia range. The quality I find the same, but those little touches are what make the Insignia range so special I guess. The disc control fulfills its purpose, though, and still looks quality.
It locks for travel which is really useful if you want to take the vibe away with you. It also is very quiet, I wouldn’t say silent but turn the TV or music on and it couldn’t be heard very much.
What he says
Miss K uses this toy on her own mainly, and she seems to enjoy it as you can see from her word above.
What I can say it it’s not too phallic to scare guys away from using it with their partners. For beginners it’s therefore great as you could use it to get her going before you take over, just glide over the clitoris and tease her by inserting. The controls are easy to use and can be locked so you can take it away on a dirty weekend!
I really like the design of this toy and love the vibrant green colour. As a designer I enjoy the minor details LELO always apply to their toys and packing. I tip my Hat to LELO for ensuring the toys colour has been used as an accent colour on the packaging. (#designgeek)

Where to buy
Overall, I do feel it’s lacking some power and girth for me. But LELO never fail to impress with quality, function, ease of charging and ease of cleaning. Perhaps a fab toy for beginners, and for me, great to be used with a clitoral stimulator (ie the ORA 2).
I give this toy 7/10
