Having a solo sex life is actually pretty good – if you have the right toys for it.
Dildos are the first thing people think of when they want to buy women’s sex toys for some special alone time, but sometimes you just wanna get eaten out.
Most of our orgasms come from clitoral stimulation after all, so why not find a toy that can fulfill that craving?
Unfortunately, it’s very hard to create a toy that mimics the human mouth and tongue. Even more, it’s practically impossible to try and have a toy simulate the exact motions of someone’s tongue.
That’s the exact reason why suction toys tend to be very hit or miss on the market of women’s sex toys – most of them go either too hard or don’t really do much. I have had issues with them for years, and dealt with some very weird after-sensations. That, or they just functioned as really intense bullet vibrators.
I figured I wasn’t cut out for these ‘oral stimulation’ toys and that I needed a human mouth there to satisfy me instead.
That was, until one fateful night when my girlfriends kept raving on about some magical clit sucking toy that I decided I had to try. That’s the story of how I found out about the Lelo Ora 3 for the first time – and why I definitely wanted to test it out.
Right off the bat, the Ora Lelo 3 gets a perfect score for packaging. As a really big fan of simple and sleek designs, it struck the minimalist chord in me when I first saw the box it came in.
It’s all-black and pretty sturdy, which makes it look luxurious. There’s a small window in the middle through which the Lelo Ora 3 sits in all its glory. It almost looks like an expensive perfume at first glance. It’s one of the most uniquely shaped toys I own, in comparison to everything else I have in my sex toy arsenal.
Of course, I went with purple. You can never have enough purple-colored women’s sex toys.
Aside from the toy itself, the box comes with: a satin case that you can put it in if you plan to travel, a lube sample, a cable for charging, and a full set of instructions to know exactly where and how to use the toy.
Honestly, if I had to judge it by the packaging alone, it would win the Devine Award. From the silky, smooth feel to the touch, to the all-black look, it’s got everything I like to see.
The Lelo Ora 3 hops on its own hype train by calling itself ‘the world’s most sophisticated oral sex simulator’ on the market.
These are the basics:
- It comes in three colors: aqua, midnight rose, and deep purple. They are all matte with a glossy finish on the ABS gold-colored plastic;
- It weighs 117.5g or 4.1oz;
- Its dimensions are 75 x 43 x 80mm or 2.9 x 1.7 x 3in.
The Ora Lelo 3 is shaped like a really big ring with a bulbous top. On the bottom of the toy, there’s a little nub that pokes out – the oral stimulator. It feels very smooth to the touch. In fact, it’s pretty much the softest silicone I’ve ever felt.
I’d give it one minus because of the ABS plastic that coats the inside of the ring. I always prefer full silicone over anything plastic, but alas.
If anything, at least your fingers can easily get a firm grip on it and hold it in place.
Just above the little handle nub, there are three symbols: +, () and –.
It’s pretty easy to use: the plus increases the speed, the minus lowers it, and the parentheses are used to cycle through the various vibration modes.
One thing the instructions make very clear is that if you press the plus and minus at the same time for 5 seconds, it’s gonna lock in the device – and you can do the same motion to unlock it again.
Lelo Ora 3 offers an ‘intense’ vibration setting, which can be activated by holding down the parentheses for three seconds. Sadly, I didn’t feel much of a difference between that and the toy’s highest setting.
It also has 12 vibration speeds and patterns, so you’ll be free to control each one to your heart’s content. Even on the minimal setting, I was feeling the rhythm of a good tease, and the highest speed mixed with different patterns tossed me into a whirlwind of pleasure.
Longevity is extremely important when dealing with women’s sex toys. You don’t want to be chained to a wall while you’re flicking your bean all the time. Sometimes, enjoying a toy in the shower or outside can give you that extra kick you need.
The Ora Lelo 3 has about an hour of battery life, which is one hour less than what I’d usually want. On the upside, it’s managed to make me climax multiple times by the end of that hour, so the longevity isn’t really a downside.
In order to fully charge its batteries, you will need about 2 hours, which is standard for most women’s sex toys.
Features-wise, it’s a winner for me!
The IntelliSense Technology
Lelo is famous for having state-of-the-art and completely unique features that are only available to the line. The Ora Lelo 3 is no different in this department. If you’re into AI tech that’s been programmed to help you orgasm better, then this bad boy is the perfect piece to your missing women’s sex toys puzzle.
In essence, what it does is ‘smartly’ detect when it needs to go faster. The harder you push it into your clit, the more intense it’s gonna get.
It also miraculously knows to speed up when you need it most. I was so close to getting to seventh heaven myself, but I just needed that one little extra push, and as if it knew, the Lelo Ora 3 picked up speed, just like that.
All hail the wonders of technology!
Sex toys aren’t perfect unless they include that waterproof element for me. I enjoy getting wet in more ways than one, so having a gadget there with me to bring me closer to the edge is always welcome.
Luckily, the Ora Lelo 3 is excellent in that department as well.
While using it in the shower will do the trick, I suggest getting in a bathtub or jacuzzi to really get the good vibes going. As a strong advocate for science, I know for a fact that waves travel faster in water – which means they will help you cum faster and more intensely.
It works especially well if you’re getting it on with your partner while you’re on top. Something about the combination of the water, waves, and vibes just makes for the perfect recipe to get a great O.
The first time I tried it, I felt a bit weird. Something about the little nub rubbed me the wrong way (literally), until I finally got the speed and intensity going just the way I wanted. It wasn’t until I was about ready to explode, that I felt the real power of the Ora Lelo 3.
I put more pressure on the ring, which in turn made it vibrate a bit differently, and clung onto my clit just the way I wanted it to. I didn’t even need the instruction manual to read and figure out which button did what, it just hit the spot all by itself as I kept going.
Honestly, just letting the toy do what it’s meant to do is more than enough. I’d go as far as saying you don’t even need to adjust any speeds.
The Lelo Ora 3 surpassed all my expectations. I once heard it was the only toy capable of eating out. While it’s not 100% similar to someone getting down on you, it’s as close as it gets to the real deal.
Not only is it one of the prettiest and most luxurious-looking toys I own, it also blew all my doubts out of the water when it repeatedly kept my clit satisfied almost every time I used it. I came pretty close to squirting once too, which doesn’t happen with any other toy I own.
My only suggestion would be trying it out everywhere so you can feel its full potential – you don’t wanna miss out on all the fun sexy times you’re gonna have with this toy!
