Oh Toy with Mes, do I have a treat for you!
Her name is “SORAYA” and she is part of LELO’s brand new line called INSIGNIA – all ergonomic, stylish, luxurious, and fully waterproof toys.
You need one. You do.
If you’re a huge fan of LELO toys like me, then your vagina is already one spoiled little girl, but this?
LELO SORAYA takes it to a whole another level entirely.
In my last review, I tested out LELO’s other rabbit style vibrator, the LELO INA, and I really loved her. I still do love the Ina, but LELO SORAYA kind of takes the idea of the “multiple pleasure” toy another step forward.
First of all, she’s really pretty. SORAYA is curvaceous, with a cut-out handle for ease of use so you don’t give yourself carpal tunnel while using it. Nobody wants to explain how they got that to the doctor, do they? Thanks for thinking of us, LELO! We don’t have to make up stories anymore! Plus you can play with her hole while she goes to town on yours.
There’s a super-intuitive three-button interface for people like me who are mystified by even a simple device like a TV remote control. You can turn it up, switch modes, and turn it down in three little buttons. It’s not a problem. If you can’t handle this, you shouldn’t be masturbating.
It has a “platinum-gold ABS core”. I don’t know what that is, but it sounds very impressive.
As is the norm from LELO, it’s made from very nice, high-end materials, not phthalates. In case you don’t know, phthalates are plasticizers–stuff that makes hard plastic softer. The problem is that they are known endocrine disruptors and estrogen mimics. For that reason alone, you need to avoid them whenever possible. They’ve also been linked to metabolic disorders like obesity and hepatocarcinogenicity. What’s scarier, is that both phthalates and parabens can show up in your urine a mere 20 minutes(!) after the application of a cosmetic or body care product that contains them. Clearly, they are absorbed into the body very quickly so it’s important to avoid them because you don’t want to have to explain to your doctor that you got fat and caught the Cunt Cancer from your cheaply made vibrator, do you?
Your vagina deserves better.
I’m glad we cleared that up.
Anyway, LELO SORAYA is fully rechargeable by plugging it into the wall, and will last up to four hours on a charge. Four hours is about three and a half more than I need, but it’s nice to know the reserve is there. It has multiple speeds, pulse patterns and, as I mentioned, it’s fully waterproof. I particularly like the waterproof feature because I get bored in the bathtub. After I play with my bath fizzies in the palm of my hand, and I do my little twisting and stretching in the warm water, and I sip my wine, and drum Ode to Joy with my fingernails on the side of the tub, there’s really not much else to do in the bath…until now.
Instead of drumming out Ode to Joy, I’m gonna be singin’ it!
LELO SORAYA is what is called a dual-action vibrator, offering “multiple pleasures” in that it stimulates your vajeen as well as Dolores the Clitoris. The clitoral stimulator is super flexible, much more so than INA’s. I think because of that flexibility, you could probably spin it around and put it in your bummy area if you felt so inclined. I haven’t tried doing that yet, but to be honest I get kind of excited thinking about it.
There are many different, individual motors lying underneath SORAYA’s smooth, comfortable silicone skin so that all of your pleasure points receive their due attention. I haven’t dissected one to find out exactly how many there are, but there are at least two distinct motors. The three button interface allows you full control of both vibration intensity as well as each of the eight vibration modes. The buttons naturally fall under your fingers during use. It’s almost as if the Swedish people at LELO actually USE these things. Big thumbs up for ergonomics!
Speaking of modes, can I just tell you how amazing the alternating vibration modes are? One of them is like a techno beat – it’s a quick on/off/on/off switch from internal to clitoral stimulators, back and forth. It will blow your mind. The other alternating mode is more like a wave traveling through the toy, washing from one area to another. More gradual from inside to outside. It’s… just… You need to try it because the only words I have for you are FUCK. YEAH. In fact, I asked Toy with Me if that could be my whole review since after using this toy I was sort of a blithering idiot and that’s all I could say for hours afterward because it was that good. They thought it might be better if I could include more detail beyond “FUCK. YEAH.”, so here we are.
It comes with its own charger, a sexy black satin storage pouch, A FREE PIN for all you jewelry whores out there, and a full one year warranty.
So, in summary:

- The diameter at the thickest part of the insertable section (close to the tip) is 1.3″, and a little less than an inch wide at the thinnest (towards the middle)
- The “finger” is about 2.375″ long and a little wider than 3/4ths of an inch at its thickest.
- Body-safe FDA-Approved silicone/light metallic-coated ABS core
- Fully waterproof with 8 adjustable stimulation modes
- Fully rechargeable for up to 4 hours of pleasure
- Lockable interface for easy traveling
