LELO MIA Black Vibrator Review

A few days ago, I received a couple of packages from LELOOne packaged was labelled - Scented Candle... and the other, was discreetly labelled - Massager.
My "massager" was actually the MIA Black. Which is a lipstick sized vibrator from LELO. Everything from the LELO website is well packaged, luxurious looking, made of great quality materials and very stylishly designed.
The first generation MIA came in a petal pink colour. Cute! But this new MIA Black, comes with a new and improved motor. Now girls, if you've not used a vibrator before, the one thing you need to know is - it's all in the motor. You want one that can give you the most intense vibrations.
If it's too intense, you can easily use less pressure, or if you have the MIA Black, you can just click and adjust the intensity. But if you get a cheapskate vibrator with a weak motor, it is useless. Now the thing with powerful motors in vibrators I have found, is that they use up a loooootttt of battery. Many of the small portable/lipstick vibrators in the market today use those tiny watch batteries. And man that costs a LOT of money.

Like 3 dollars each, and one of my vibrators in the past (which I bought for $60plus in a novelty sex store in Singapore), used 4 of this batteries.. and would run out of batteries every 2 weeks. So Costly!!
So the fact that the MIA Black does NOT USE BATTERIES at all is fabulous news to me. It charges via USB.. right from my laptop. I don't have to spend $$ on batteries and I won't be stuck with a flat vibrator because I forgot to buy batteries.

Once you're done charging (takes less than an hour, and it lasts for a couple of weeks), put the cap back on and it is water-tight, so no problem washing the Mia Black.

The only drawback about the MIA Black design is perhaps the speed buttons are so well integrated that they are almost flush against the body of the vibrator. Looks fantastic and elegant. The design is smooth and clean. But adjusting the speed of the vibrator takes a bit of getting used to in the dark because my fingers are not braille sensitive.

Performance wise, as someone who has had "the Rabbit"(that was 300+ bucks!), and about 4 mini vibrators after that... I dare say this is as good as vibrators get. And it is surprisingly quiet... only a soft gentle hum can (barely) be heard... unlike my last lipstick vibrator which is powerful too, but emits a loud distinct whirring noise.... not discreet at all!

Plus the Mia Black comes with 1 year warranty. :) (I just wish it were Pink!)

The LELO site is full of well designed, modern adult toys... none of them sleazy cheapo looking. So they make great gifts. They even have a Homme Category for men's toys.The other thing LELO sent me was the Massage Candle.
I lit it and it smells of pommegranate plus a hint of a pepper. Very sensual.
It's pretty neat- made with shea butter and soy wax, so once the wax melts, it becomes a pool of wonderful massage oil that's good for your skin. The wax is hot (but not scalding), and is great for couple massages.

I like the Massage candle.... but I absolutely LOOOVE my new Mia Black vibrator. Check out the LELO website, the Mia Black launches today. They have a wide selection of all sorts of vibes and oils/gels, accessories and costumes. They ship internationally.

    when there is no other stuff to thrash her, you guys pick on an issue as big as the size of the heart on her cheek.

    Geez, now who should grow up?

    From a neutral standpoint... Don't think they were picking on her. Just voicing opinions and giving constructive criticism. :)
