I didn’t want the Ina Wave until I held it in my hands. Holding it, my fingers clenched around its moving shaft, I wondered: how would this feel though?
Then, I met a woman who had tried it and the look in her eye told me everything I needed to know: it was time to test this toy.
Luckily, the good folks at LELO sent me one to review here on Peep’s Scoop. Lovely.
But, wait, what is the LELO Ina Wave and what is it supposed to do?
The Ina Wave is a rabbit vibrator with a curved internal shaft and an external arm to stimulate the clitoris. It comes in babely blue, which I can’t get enough of (and also bright pink and purple). Each Ina Wave arrives with its charger, warranty card, black satin storage pouch, and a sample of LELO’s water based lube.
Now, I do not have an original Ina, but from what I’ve heard and gathered from the fit of the Wave, this rabbit fits snugly on the body.
The Ina Wave is a tight fit, not just for me, but for a lot of bodies. What’s awesome about that? Well, it means you get the sensation of pressure on the clit, which is an extreme rarity for a dual stimulator. I have rather plump labia, so the arm naturally rests to the left or right side of my clitoris though I can adjust it directly over the hood, as well. A fit like this is not so awesome if you don’t have a thing for pressure on your vulva.
The conceit of the Ina Wave is this: the shaft curls back and forth in a “come hither motion.” The box describes it as “plunging”—-and it does kind of feel like that. It rocks back and forth inside my body. The clitoral arm moves too, which sounds annoying, but actually feels really good. The vibration never leaves my clit, the pressure just increases and decreases with the motion of the shaft.
Unlike older LELO toys which usually have a plastic handle, the Ina Wave is covered head to toe in silky, medical grade silicone. It’s 100% waterproof and rechargeable. LELO also added a much desired “kill switch,” you can press the center button to turn it on or off. When you want to shut it completely off you can do that easily with one quick press.
The controls, however, are far less easy to manuever than the ones on the Mona 2. They’re less intuitive, meaning I have to think about where my hand is and the buttons I’m trying to press, whereas with the Mona 2 it’s so easy I don’t even have to think about it. I love the kill switch, but it took me a concerningly long time to figure out how to manipulate the functions on this toy.
What’s nice, though, is that it remembers where you left off. So if you have a favorite setting (I do: internal vibration off, clit vibration and wave function on full speed), it will start at that setting every time you turn it on. Its battery is long lasting, which I really appreciate, and it doesn’t take super long to charge.
But, before I go any further, there are a couple of super crucial things you need to know about this toy.
1. It’s slow.
This slowness ranges from a Tantra-slow-burn “mmmmm yeah” to a frustrating “Could you just go a LITTLE FASTER?!?!?!?!” (A little later I’ll describe why what some see as its biggest fault was the reason for my adoration).
2. It’s loud.
It produces a noise I once likened to a tiny factory of pixies inside it running on wheels to make it go. It’s not loud in the way a plug-in wand vibrator is loud. It’s more of a high-pitched, teeth chattering noise.
Whew, ok, got it? It’s slower than you think and also loud. .
My Experience with the Ina Wave
This toy. Ok. I love the Ina Wave. This isn’t the first time a $200 luxury toy has made my vag swoon, but the Ina Wave does it for me. A lot of bloggers were (and are) skeptical of the Wave line and I’d almost feel silly for loving it as much as I do, if it hadn’t made me ejaculate.
I’m not sugarcoating. My honest experience is that this stimulation builds slowly and deliciously until I practically erupt in orgasm. Will you experience this though? I can’t say that for sure, this is only my experience.
Basically, the Ina Wave feels like it folds into my G-Spot. It’s a sensation of pressure—like it’s wrapping into my G-Spot, meanwhile the clitoral arm massages my labia and clitoral legs. Though I haven’t tried the Mona Wave, the combination of the two sensations, I would think, set the Ina Wave apart.
Does it feel like getting fingered?
No, not to me anyway. The shaft is wide and bulbous which allows it to apply more pressure and help me feel more full. Then again, fingers on my G-Spot haven’t ever really done that much for me.
If I’m totally honest this toy’s greatest fault to some (its slowness) is what does me in. It got me to slow down, revel in sensation, and then explode in blended orgasm. Is it hyperbolic marketing? Yes. Did it actually happen? A’yep.
The vibration is rumbly, but not deep or muted. I honestly didn’t think that I would be able to orgasm with it alone. I thought I would have to use another toy to add more intense vibration. But, I was wrong.
And slightly perplexed. The Ina Wave seemed like it would be a stretch to work well with my body and yet, I have mind-blowing orgasms with it nearly every time. It was the first toy I squirted with….but again this is my one experience. I would never tell you that it would make you do that too because I can’t know that.
I think my G-Spot is a mutant.
I usually recommend two different toys over a rabbit vibrator and yet the Ina Wave is one of my favorite vibrators that I’ve ever tested. It’s perfect for lazy Sundays, I just hold it there and it does everything for me.
Is it worth $200? I don’t know how to answer that, but when I look at other toys in that category, I say that it fits in. I understand that this makes it inaccessible to some, but it doesn’t ruffle my feathers any more than any other toy being that expensive.
I don’t think it’s worth breaking the bank over, but that’s true of all toys too.
My review is this: I love using the Ina Wave, I like how it folds into my G-Spot slowly and pulls me over the orgasmic edge, I ejaculated for the first time with it and it was awesome. It’s expensive and loud, but it’s 100% waterproof, rechargeable, and it comes with a warranty. I have a feeling it will make my favorite toys of 2015 list.
