Here’s the thing about the Mona 2 from LELO: it ticks a lot of boxes.
It’s quiet, too. I use it in bed, under the covers, and my partner doesn’t stir. My flatmates can’t overhear anything. Hell, my cat doesn’t notice even when she’s curled up on my feet.
The Mona 2 has quite a following amongst sex toy bloggers, and that’s why I chose it. I figured it was worth the investment. Because, let’s face it, LELO toys aren’t cheap. But think of this as an investment in your happiness, and as Donna & Tom from Parks & Rec would say, “TREAT YO SELF!” I bought my Mona 2 from d.vice on Ponsonby Road.
LELO products come beautifully packaged: the Mona 2 has a thick matte black box that it calls home, and a beautiful storage pouch to keep it safe. These days, the Mona 2 sits in its pouch in my bedside table because I use it damn near daily.
I tend to use the Mona 2 internally first, on one of the escalating patterns until my g-spot can’t take it anymore, and then finish using it on my clitoris, making for a fantastic orgasm. It is the perfect shape, girth and length, to hit all my most sensitive spots, and the vibration strength is perfect – on max, it’s strong but not de-sensitising. Because the Mona 2 has a tapered point at the end, you can direct pressure and vibration with pinpoint accuracy, or lay the body of it against the curve of your genitals to cover more area.
LELO says a fully charged Mona 2 will last for two hours, and I’ve found that to be accurate. You can lock it by pressing the – and + buttons at the same time and holding for three seconds. The buttons will light up, showing that it’s locked, and to unlock you simply repeat the action.
I’m not a big user of lube but something water-based (I’m a fan of Sliquid Sassy) works really well with the silky soft silicone surface of this vibe. This vibe is super easy to clean up as its fully waterproof – even if you get water in the charge port on the end, it’s vacuum sealed internally. I tend to wash mine with soap & water, but you can use a 10% bleach solution to sanitise it if need be.
To summarise, the LELO Mona 2 is my fave, and I highly recommend it.
