Well, that was exhilarating.
If (like me) you’re cunnilingus’ numero uno fan, you’d probs laugh in the face of anyone who said they’d found a sex toy that stacks up to oral sex. And to be honest, I wouldn’t blame you. Surely nothing human-made could ever compare to the real deal?
The LELO DOT™ is a pinpoint clitoral stimulator, made by Swedish sex toy company Lelo, that was designed for anyone out there that feels like masturbation can be a little routinised, and wants more than a toy that just satisfies their sexual urge.
So while the thought of trying another clitoral sex toy didn’t exactly blow my knickers off, I knew I had to take one for the team (that team being: women) and give it a chance. After all, if the LELO DOT™ promises to be for women who are keen to push their boundaries and pursue a different path toward pleasure – and I don’t want to be the one who misses out on that.
How it works
The LELO DOT™ allows for multiple endless orgasms (I mean, who wouldn’t want that?!), unlike traditional vibrators that may numb the area around the clitoris and cause saturation. “Thanks to its soft and bendable tip and revolutionary elliptical motion, LELO DOT™ offers climaxing with unmatched precision and ease.” So unlike vibrators of yore that, well, vibrated against everything, this toy works each and every point separately. I know, wizardry.
With its little pointer-style mouth thingy (technical term), the toy combines elliptical motion and a soft and bendable tip to offer stimulation with absolute precision across the clitoris and any external erogenous zone. Instead of moving in circles like the classical vibrators, it follows an “elliptical trajectory” that allows constant and pleasant surprises by simply shifting the angle of the toy, resulting in a new type of orgasm that feels much stronger and more focused.
As a mega sex toy nerd, I am obsessed with how long one charge will get you on the DOT™. There is nothing worse than burning for some you-time and realising you forgot to charge the damn thing.
It’s also a win because it’s waterproof and can be used in the bath or shower. Made from body-friendly silicone, it’s safe, and also really easy to clean. Plus, there are 8 different vibration patterns, varying in intensity from a teasing murmur to a satisfying pulse etc, so you can use it as gently (or not) as you like.
What it actually feels like IRL
My general rule when trying out new sex toys is: go at it alone the first time. It’s just way better to figure out how best to use a toy on yourself, and how to move it/what setting to have it on to make sure it feels good before using it with a partner. But what can I say? I’m an anarchist and broke my own rule this time. My husband spotted it in my backpack and was like a moth to a flame. By the time I was back from the loo, the box and its contents were strewn across the room and the tip was already firmly pressed against his nipple. Men, right?!
So after *ahem* warming (and lubing) up, he positioned it on my clitoris. Which, I confess, is pretty hard to do yourself as a) it’s slipping about all over the shop due to all the lube, and b) I was lying down (lazy) so couldn’t really see that well. When he turned it onto the first/lowest setting I did that face you do when you try a weird food combo that you don’t really want to, before realising it actually tastes pretty good. Imagine, if you will, that a tiny and sexy elf (think Legolas shrunk down to Tinker Bell size) is gently vibrating your clit. That’s basically it.
Because it’s such an unusual sensation (by the time you get to the third setting it’s more like the elf is trying to swallow your vulva whole), it didn’t take very long to make me come. And my orgasm was a really bizarre one – one of those ones that creeps up on you outta nowhere, but then just keeps on coming. It felt like nothing I’ve ever experienced on this earthly plane.
Honestly, you don’t get bored of that feeling. I’ve used it on my own since (just a few times, obvs) and from the moment you switch that bad boy on, it’s like a witch has put an orgasm hex on your junk.
