This is the second of the toys LELO sent me to review. I admit, I wanted to try it solely based on the geek factor – it’s USB rechargable. I could be wrong, but I think that it might be the only vibrator that recharges via USB. You take off the cap to reveal the plug, just like a USB memory stick. Except for the plus-minus buttons on the side that are ringed in a red glow when charging, you might even be able to get away with charging it on your laptop in plain sight. Really, the only thing about this vibe that would geek me out even more would be if it actually did double as a memory stick. Can you imagine?? How cool would that be…..store some favorite porn on it and voila, it’ll turn you on and get you off!


But I digress.

Like all LELO toys, it comes with a one year manufacturer’s warranty, a handy user manual, a pretty black box and a satin storage bag. It comes in a deep fuchsia pink and a pale pink. Easily tossed in your purse and it will blend right in. A two hour charge yields I think 4 hours of play. Mia is a clitoral vibrator only, not meant for vaginal or anal insertion.

Like the Elise that I reviewed, it has variable speeds and multiple pulsation programs. While I  -personally- would like it to be just a notch or two stronger (because it’s a high buzzy vibe, rather than a strong lower buzzy vibe – I can’t explain it any other way, sorry. The higher the buzzy, the stronger it needs to be for me otherwise its borderline ticklish), this toy really can suit most women who consider themselves to be a bit sensitive. For me the lower speeds will never be used, I crank it up to high but it’s not quite enough for me to get off. Rechargable, made of body-safe materials (no phthalates), multiple speeds and settings, and small & discreet. (Update Sept 2011: Lelo has recreated the Mia, and now has the Mia 2.0. So far it’s only available in black. The Mia 2.0 has stronger vibrations which are deeper and less surface-buzzy, but it still lacks the oomph of a corded battery-powered bullet. Improved, though.)

Slowly drag Mia over and around your nipples…

Tease around your outter labia…

Explore the pusaltion modes while she’s homed in on your clit…

And get off.
