TGIW. I just had one of those days that make you wish you hadn’t bothered getting out of bed. Overslept, no time for hair and make-up, traffic that wouldn’t quit, annoying people everywhere. UPS said today would be the day … Thank God It’s Wednesday! Two months ago, after my fair share of research (pleasant as it was), I had decided on my new toy, and started feeding the piggy bank I reserve for “recreational” purchases (ahem). A few days ago, finally armed with a full oinker, I was actually tingling as I clicked “submit order” for my LELO IRIS Vibrator and have been staring a hole in the calendar since. Mere coincidence that my new toy was due to arrive on Hump Day? I think not. Sometimes fate finds me.
Inspired By A Flower
I love the irony of giving up my flower to a flower. The newest sleek, premium toy to bloom from the garden of Swedish toy maker LELO-“Luxury Erotic Lifestyle Objects“-is the IRIS. So named for the likeness of a blooming IRIS on its sculpted, ergonomically curved performance end, this twin-motor vibrator is an alluring piece of nature’s bounty that I just had to take for a spin around my cornucopia.
The IRIS’s discreet, signature box emanates the elegance of a flower. Opening it made me feel at the same time ladylike and naughty, which I liked. This belle of my ball even came with a decadent satin storage pouch. I made it through the packaging without ripping it to shreds in hurried anticipation, but alas, I had to charge the battery.
Attempting patience, I perused the instructions and realized why they’re detailed. Nothing that a first use can’t cure, but the IRIS’s simple-looking controls need a bit of pre-coital research. This toy comes locked and loaded, literally. After charging, you unlock it by pressing the interface dial, which is divided into four quadrants that unleash the intensity and power of the IRIS’s five stimulation modes.
I like a good sampler platter, so I lubed us both up, browsed around the dial and introduced myself properly, trying out the power options on my clitoris and surrounds. The IRIS is lightweight and fit perfectly in my palm. Slow as she goes, I explored the feel of its shape, size and weight-gold star for all. I played with the intense pleasure modes while sliding the vibrator in and out. Vibrating and pulsing, it remained virtually silent, earning an A for discreet play.
Most vibrators have a single motor. The IRIS doubles the fun. The shaft and head can operate separately or in tandem, each with its own options for vibration/pulse, speeds and modes. Can I get a “Wow!”? The IRIS got plenty of them from me as its selection of movements treated me to unpredictable stimulation. I’ll be holding a special place in my heart for Hump Day.
