The Lelo Mia 2 damn near broke my heart.
I tried to prepare myself, tried to steady my anxieties when I found out that the tapered end is not the end meant to be used. I slowly chanted this information (that the tapered end covers the USB port and was not an answer to my prayers for a bullet with more shape), and made it my mantra, so that Mia 2 and I might start on fresh terms. As the days went on, I began to panic more. I scoured the web looking for reviews, but all seemed to agree, the less-than-mighty vibrations don’t carry through to the tapered end.
The Lelo Mia 2 is clitoral vibe, its shape mimicks a lipstick tube. I love the shape, femme-y and perfect for travel. It’s discrete, yet elegant, and I love looking to my purse to see it sitting there, next to, well, actual lipstick(s). But when it came actual use, I found myself yelling “WHY MIA WHY? I GAVE YOU EVERYTHING”
You see there’s one problem and it’s what my grandma might call a doozy: the Mia 2 is not meant for my clitoris. No matter how much we might try, the love between my clitoris and Mia is only one of aesthetic appreciation.
While I am positive that there are a bajillion clits out there that the Mia 2 would serve and love and be perfect for, I do not have such a clit. Mine is a power queen and I experience the most intense pleasure when a powerful vibe is pushing on its shaft (above the hood) and covering both legs that lay in my labia. It needs to be fat, powerful, and easy to push down on.
The Mia 2 is plumper than I anticipated. Bullet style vibes tend to be super skinny, and don’t reach all the places that I’d like them to. Although the Mia 2’s width is great, the lack of power leaves me heartbroken.When I turned it on for the first time (after its initial charging time of about 1 hour), my partner, who knows very little about vibrators but a great deal about what a power queen I am, said “Why does this setting exist?” referring to the first one. I snapped at him, telling him that he was being harsh, still defensive of the love that might occur between the Mia 2. But, after trying it on that first level, I have to agree with him.
I can come from the Mia, but it must be on high, I must rub it into myself rather ferociously. Try as I might, I just don’t feel satisfied using it. My orgasms are meager and inconsistent. Since my first impressions, I have tried again, and I can come from the gentle vibes a little easier, now that I’m prepared for its lack of power. I still, however, don’t feel as satisfied, as I think that I should.
Now, there are some things about the Mia 2 that I think make it a solid choice for some folks. The Mia 2 is easy to use with a simple two button interface, and its quite easy to go from the pulsations back to the vibes. You simply press the down button for 4 seconds. I love this option—-many bullet vibes require you to either to shut off the vibrator completely or scroll through an endless loop.
The Mia 2 was the second rechargeable toy I’ve tried, and I still felt a little clueless about it all. I figured that Lelo, who are pretty fancy in their packaging and marketing, would tell me all about it. The instruction booklet has no useful information to offer. So, terrified that I wouldn’t let it charge long enough, or somehow accidentally destroy it, I, once again, turned to reviews to figure out what to do.
It does hold it’s charge quite nicely, and I love that I can just strap into my laptop whenever I feel like it. But, that’s the tragedy of the Mia 2 and I, it works great, looks great, and is easy to use, it just can’t be me that power tool strength lovin’ that I need.
