Darla Reviews: Ora by Lelo

LELO-ORA-MidnightBlue-OralSexVibrator

What it is:

The new Ora, by Lelo, is one of the prettiest and most surprising toys I’ve had the joy of playing with. It is an external stimulator that has a knob that either quickly flicks or rotates in long sensual strokes, creating a sensation similar to oral sex. The appearance of it is as sexy as it will make you, featuring some embellishing metal around the center, and soft high-grade silicone around the exterior. This toy has 10 different modes, on top of a variety of intensities for each. Lelo also boasts that this toy has a new ‘intense’ mode that is said to give you 30% more power instantly.

What it does:

The Ora looks like a new kind of Bluetooth speaker, so they get an A+ for discretion. Lelo also stepped up their game with the new intense setting. Folks, I’m happy to announce it is all that, AND a bag of chips! The vibration is more stimulating and deeply penetrating, without changing the frequency much. The cycling knob that is below a blanket of silicone is the perfect size, very much like the tip of a tongue. It flicks either in a quick back and forth half circle, or it can make a full revolution with varying pressures. This is how it achieves that unpredictable and intimate feeling you get from cunnilingus. With all these different options, it’s not as much work as it sounds. Think of it like this; just lay back, flip through the channels, and be pleasantly surprised by each.

The Verdict:

For the most part, Ora really delivered. The orbiting combined with vibration was fabulous. It gave the sensation that I was not in control, which is amazing given I’m holding onto the little sucker. Although the rotation is superb, the knob catches on the silicone when pressure is applied. This causes a hiccup in the whole process. One of the best parts about oral is having all your lovely creases probed, and this toy doesn’t quite take a pounding like I wish it would. However, much like the real thing, this is the perfect way to warm up. If you like a soft sensual touch, this is the toy for you. (I paired this with the GiGi2 by Lelo. It’s safe to say I felt like the conductor of a symphony afterward.) It truly left me dripping and ravenous.

G-Spot Advice

Dear Darla,

I have a question – I am not sure of the exact location (or if there is an exact location) for the Gspot – it seems mysterious to me. I have not read extensively about it, but what i have read seems like too much fiction and not enough fact.  Does the Gspot really exist? If so, HOW DO I FIND IT?!?!!?

 Thanks in Advance,

Vinicius Vieira


 

Dear Vinicius,

That is a great question, and I can start by saying that YES, THE G-SPOT DOES EXIST!!!

The mysterious g-spot, or Grafenberg spot, is located along the front vaginal wall by the pelvic bone behind the clit, approximately 2-3 inches deep. This is also where you will find the urethral sponge, which encompasses sensitive nerve endings and is tied to female ejaculation. Its existence and function have been a hot topic for debate, and I’ve found that the majority of people loudly debating the subject were men. No offense to them, but I’m sure I know my vagina better than they do, and guess what.. It’s real!! Don’t take my word for it- perhaps you can find one for yourself.

The best way to find it is by slowly and sensually exploring your lover’s body until you find that little magically moist walnut of joy. It’s important to go slowly in the beginning. This will help direct focus on the physical touches and feelings of pleasure, while remaining relaxed. Any kind of anxiety that could cause one to hold back will disrupt the flow and hinder reaching the highest heights of ecstasy. Foreplay is crucial for most women in order to get really hot and bothered. Once aroused, insert your index and middle finger into your partner’s vagina and curl your fingers toward you in a come hither motion. If flying solo, curl your fingers inward and upward. If you like toys, these are spectacular for this (Njoy Fun WandJe Joue G-Ki, & Lelo Mona).

The g-spot starts out fairly flat, but with stimulation and arousal, it will begin to balloon outward. You can physically feel it getting larger. An orgasm from g-spot stimulation is totally different than any other. Clitoral orgasms feel like a higher frequency and tend to be intense and hard hitting all at once. The g-spot orgasm is much deeper and comes in rolling waves. I am always surprised by how many times I can climax, and with my good friend Grafenberg, each one is more intense than the one before. Most famously, the g-spot is your key to the epic and hotly sought after squirt!

Those who choose to explore the g-spot’s limitations have found that when it’s pet, you’ll feel like you may need to pee. This is the first deterrent to those who may experience stimulation there. This feeling can be a bit alarming at first, but you have to trust that your urethral sponge is doing its job and inflating to obstruct your urethral tube. Once you ride out this feeling, you will reach beautiful breathtaking bliss.

Stay tuned in for next time, when I elaborate more on the climactic finish! (Here’s Part II)

Love,

Darla

Allow me to introduce myself;

Hello All,

Ever wonder who’s behind all this delectable naughtiness?

Well wonder no longer; you can call me Darla. I work at the Shag shop in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I’m the current designer for our blog, flyers, and will also be doing the toy reviews. My predecessor, Dixon Malone, left some mighty sexy shoes to fill, and now I have the honors. I will do all I can to follow in her footsteps and keep you informed, entertained, and wanting more.

If you have inquiries or are seeking some advice, please email me at dear.darla.day@gmail.com. If something is on your mind, chances are it’s on many others’ as well. All interactions will be kept strictly anonymous (unless requested otherwise). I strongly encourage you to ask questions and make comments. Everyone has an opinion, and I’d love to hear yours.

With love,

Darla

Our Mission

“SHAG aims to address issues relating to humanity, identity, gender, and sexuality that have been considered taboo in our culture for far too long.  Facilitating open dialogue with the general public, mediated through the work of talented artists, SHAG aspires to unite sex and art (two things that have lived under the same roof for centuries) and create an environment that is inviting, un-intimidating, fun, and open to all.

SHAG functions as a retail store, fine art gallery, and event space. Virtually all of our inventory, from the art on the walls to our stock of retail goods, has been made by local artists.  SHAG is interested in supporting the local community by creating a platform through which artists can uninhibitedly express themselves, and generate a discourse on historically misrepresented issues revolving around “sex”.

SHAG’s ability to retail “functional” art is of extreme significance, bridging the gap between fine art and commercial retail.  SHAG’s products are available to the general public at affordable prices, giving the masses an opportunity to own functional, one-of-a kind pieces of art.

SHAG also functions as an art gallery and event space. We seek to further support our fine artists with gallery exhibitions, featuring a wide range of painters, photographers, and sculptors.  SHAG hosts educational programming for the public, including seminars and lectures addressing the complex issues of sexuality, gender, and relationships, as well as discussions on contemporary art and how it relates to our society.  We offer art-related classes focusing on life drawing, body painting, casting, and other community-driven interests.  SHAG positions itself as a holistic facility for artists of all forms, including music, written word, performance art, dance, etc.

The ultimate goal of SHAG is to offer our customers an open, inviting, and educated experience, allowing for positive exploration of sex and togetherness in all relationships.”
