Pleasure Product Review: Lelo Lyla 2 August 14 2015
Wireless eggs are not something I have had good luck with in the past. It always seems hard to find the right intensity for vibrations, and a good connection with the remotes. I have tried the California Exotic Novelties Posh 7-function Lover's Remote, which was a bust (never again with the watch batteries), and the Sensuelle Remote Control Rechargeable Pink (close, but still not good enough). It seems like the hardest thing to find is a long-lasting, good quality, wireless egg. I thought I stumbled upon that with the Lelo Lyla 2, but I was, unfortunately, let way, way down.
The packaging of the Lyla 2 is very sleek and sexy. I would definitely have to give major props to the design. It looks exactly how a luxury item should. Inside the box is a storage pouch (Yay!), the remote, egg, batteries, their registration card, (did I mention the one year warranty, 10 year guarantee? Wow!), the exhausting manual, charger, and the Lelo pin, so you can let everyone you know that you own a fancy Lelo toy.
I will start by saying that the shape of the Lyla 2 is spot on. It fit my vagina like a glove and stayed put. I never had an issue with the way the egg sat, in fact, I would have to say this is the most ergonomic egg I've used. The shape was very well thought out. The material was the high-quality medical grade silicone that I am used to from my Lelo products, which is body safe, and easy to clean. It had one button interface, which you do a quick press to turn on, and a long press to turn off. The remote control is also incased with silicone on the front, with three buttons, high, low, and functions, (which I will get into later) and a hard plastic on the back with a slot to unlock.
The remote is another problem I have with this toy, albeit small. I'm just spoiled I guess, but I would expect a toy that is $140.00, wouldn't require any kind of batteries, even in a remote. It takes two AAA's, which comes provided with the toy, so I guess I can't complain too much, considering "batteries included" is becoming such a luxury these days. The egg, however, charges by unscrewing the bottom of the egg where the retrieval cord is, and plugging it in. Thankfully being a second generation, the Lyla 2 has a chrome charging socket, so submersible play is encouraged.
The Lyla 2 also comes with Lelo's newest feature called SenseMotion technology.
The whole concept behind the SenseMotion technology is to make the egg vibrate with whatever pattern you move the remote. This toy comes with two SenseMotion modes. The first one intensifies vibrations by tilting the remote when it is moved from a horizontal to vertical position, and the second mode lets you change the vibration intensity by moving it either way. The faster you move it, the more intense the vibrations. Pretty cool concept, if it worked.
The main problem I had with both of the Sensemotion modes was a lag from the remote to the egg. I noticed it seemed to take a couple of seconds for the egg to move with the same pattern every time I moved the remote unless it was directly pointed at my vag. Another issue was the connection. There were sometimes when I didn't even think that the remote and egg were matched up. I had to take it out a couple of times to make sure that it was working. I do have to say, that the regular vibration patterns seemed to work pretty well. I think the Sensemotion is too many bells and whistles, and I would honestly prefer to do without. The manual describes the modes as well, but I'm not really up for reading manuals when I'm ready to get off. If you have the time to read the manual it would help, but I would just stick with the premade vibration patterns. Thankfully there is also a non-remote mode where you can just stick the egg inside and go. Personally, that was enough for me.
Which brings me to the vibrations. I have to say that I was a little less impressed with the vibrations as well. They weren't as powerful as most of the Lelo toys, in my opinion. It almost felt like there were times when it completely stopped vibrating, which is a pretty big deal. I felt the most intense sensation while I was sitting down, or crouched over, but while I was walking I didn't even realize it was in. That was the main time where I had to put my hand down my pants and check, which, unfortunately, is acceptable when you're home, but not so much in public.
Lelo definitely could have done better with this toy. The vibrations could be a little bit stronger, and the connectivity between the remote and the toy should be looked into. The shape was phenomenal, and the SenseMotion could potentially be one of the coolest features a toy could have, but if it doesn't work, there's really no point. I would probably use this while I was having anal, to have something inside for stimulation, but as for a "couple's toy", I would think twice before a night out on the town with it. At least the manual makes for a good table leveler.
