Lelo Ina is a silicone “rabbit style” dual vibrator, meaning it is meant to provide simultaneous clitoral and vaginal stimulation. I bought Ina last summer and was extremely excited to try it out since I had heard it was amazing from quite a few women, and I wanted a rabbit style vibrator that wasn’t made of a porous material.
Unfortunately, the first time I used Ina was like a bad first date: painfully awkward and uncomfortable. The strong vibrations felt great on my clit and labia, but when I tried to insert the internal portion all the way, it wouldn’t fit unless I used my hand to stretch the clitoral piece up so it could slide in, and once I let go, ouch! My clit hurts just thinking about the extreme pressure. For awhile, the only way I played with Ina was with the internal piece only about half of the way in (if that much,) because the clitoral piece was way too tight if I inserted it all the way.
I guess I did eventually get used to the Ina clitoral death grip, or maybe I got more daring, because I started using Ina all the way in after awhile. Even though it still feels ridiculously tight, it’s endurable, and the rumbly vibrations and crazy pressure on my clit make me orgasm within minutes. As far as the internal piece, it seems its only function is to help provide the intense clamp on my clit. I don’t feel anything on my g-spot other than vibration during some functions, and I can’t thrust with it because it hurts my clit if I do. Since the internal piece doesn’t give me what my g-spot craves (movement and pressure), I consider Ina a clitoral toy rather than an effective dual vibrator.
Ina has 8 modes controlled by up and down arrows: the first is deep, rumbly clitoral vibrations, the second is mainly internal vibration, the third is mainly clitoral, the fourth one quickly switches vibration back and forth between the clit and the internal piece, and the fifth quickly pulses both simultaneously. The 6th-8th modes all feel similar and are some version of a wave of increasing and decreasing vibrations between the 2 pieces. I like the first mode, the 2nd and 3rd bore me, the 4th and 5th feel robotic, but the rest feel pretty good, especially the 6th (rumbly waves of vibration between internal and clitoral pieces.)You can also adjust the strength of the vibrations at any time with the side control arrows. Although it sounds like a lot of functions, the controls aren’t hard to use after you read the manual and get the hang of them.
I obviously have mixed feelings about this toy. Although I like it much better now than when I first tried it, and it does get me off, I still feel the clitoral pressure is almost too intense, and I’m not often in the mood for it. Also, when I orgasm, I have to quickly pull Ina out because once the orgasm subsides, the toy is way too tight on my clit again. However, I have talked to many women who have bought Ina and absolutely love it and swear it’s the best toy they’ve ever had. My guess is that either they love crazy intense clitoral pressure, or it fits them differently than it does me. I would only recommend Ina to those seeking extremely intense clitoral vibration and pressure.
Here is a video I took to give you a quick visual of the grip of Ina’s clitoral arm:
