Some people get obsessed with the latest cult-favorite beauty products. Others freak out every time a cute pair of shoes goes on sale. But if you’re the type of person whose passion is discovering new pathways to pleasure for yourself and your partner, there’s one sex toy maker that you can’t miss, and that’s Lelo.
The Swedish-based retailer is known for making some of the most gorgeous, expensive, and highly sought-after items on the market. Lelo sex toys run the gamut from award-winning vibrators to luxurious lubes that leave your skin feeling really moisturized, but one thing all these diverse products have in common is that they’re worth every penny.
You don’t have to spend another night scrolling through Instagram, lusting after the brand’s opulent-looking merch from afar. Add a little glamour to your goodie drawer and consider picking up one of these top-rated Lelo sex toys now. These five favorites promise to deliver—over and over again.
1. This long-lasting lube that’s formulated with soothing aloe vera
If you thought lube was just for people who have trouble getting turned on, think again. The right lube can make everything—from sensual massages to anal sex and more—feel so much better. This water-based Lelo Personal Moisturizer is one of the best because it’s fragrance-free, safe to use with all toys and condoms, and it's formulated with aloe vera, so it can be soothing for those with sensitive skin. It’s also glycerin-free and that’s important in a lube. Cheaper drugstore varieties like KY Jelly lube are often loaded with glycerin to prolong shelf life, but this is a risky trade-off, as this ingredient may increase you or your partner’s risk of getting a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis. Lubes formulated with glycerin and other preservatives also have the unfortunate tendency to solidify into jelly-like curds as they dry. And trust me, that's not a situation you want creeping up in your nether regions.
Lelo’s water-based lube glides on smooth and stays slick—so slick, in fact, that it gives silicone a run for its money. As far as sizes go, you can get a 2.5-ounce tube or a five-ounce bottle. In my experience, you want to avoid the smaller one, as the tube tends to leak. The larger bottle, on the other hand, is leak-proof and looks super sleek yet is inconspicuous enough that you could hide it in plain sight. (Real talk: I’ve had friends mistake it for body lotion and burst out laughing when they realized their mistake.) It costs more up front to get the larger size (although it’s technically cheaper per ounce) but a bottle can last for up to four months with daily use. Most lubes don’t come with an expiration date but can generally last a couple of years, so you’re bound to get your money’s worth. I’ve also found that the pump offers terrific portion control, so not a drop goes to waste.
2. An oral sex stimulator you can set to cruise control
Chances are you’ve heard of the Womanizer before. You might have even spotted the Satisfyer Pro 2 on a shelf at a local sex shop and thought to yourself: Wow, didn’t know they sold Clarisonic facial brushes at places like this.
Both toys do roughly the same thing—they use pulses of air to create a suction-like sensation, which stimulates the clitoris in a way that can be reminiscent of oral sex. If you were thinking of buying either toy but were still on the fence, sorry, because here’s another one that’ll make it even harder to choose: Lelo’s Sona 2 Cruise.
We’re currently testing all three and the jury’s still out about which of these stimulators is the best. But the award-winning Sona 2 Cruise has some clever features that set it apart from the Womanizer and Satisfyer Pro 2, respectively. The most obvious is the Sona's shape, which is curved, so it fits nicely in the palm of your hand in a way that the Satisfyer Pro 2 won’t (because it looks like a face brush) and the elongated Womanizer also struggles with.
Another distinguishing feature is the “mouth” of the toy, which is made of firmer silicone than the others and protrudes out more. But most of all, one of the biggest reasons to try the gold-plated Sona 2 Cruise is the “Cruise Control” feature, which makes the sonic waves this toy releases automatically increase in intensity whenever you push it harder against your body. You can kind of lose yourself in the experience and let the toy be your guide, which neither the Womanizer nor the Satisfyer Pro 2 offers. If you’re already eager to add more Lelo to your collection, this is one you don’t want to miss.
3. This stretchy c-ring that’s great for couples
In sex-toy land, vibrators get all the glory and sometimes it feels like c-rings—bands designed to be worn around the base of the penis to delay orgasms and make erections appear larger—get left in the shadows. But these understated toys are not just goodie-drawer fodder. They can pump up your play in a big way and add a lot more pleasure and confidence to the equation, especially for those who struggle with erectile dysfunction.
While many c-rings are just a silicone hoop, the battery-powered, rechargeable Lelo Tor 2 is like getting two toys for the price of one. It vibrates in six settings that vary in pattern and intensity, so you can find the right rumbly pulse to satisfy you or your partner. While the vibrations can be great for clitoral stimulation, many penis-owners prefer vibrations, too. With its soft matte finish, this toy also looks lovely and feels extremely touchable. The vibrating head adds some heft to the toy itself but it can be surprisingly lightweight for the wearer. Plus, it’s completely waterproof, so you could use this during a bath or shower to make it more titillating.
Not everyone is game to stick their penis into a snug ring though, and that’s okay. You can still use the Tor 2 in sexy ways with your partner. For instance, you could wrap it around your finger and use it to stroke them on their nipples or along other erogenous zones. This kind of versatility makes it a really fun toy to whip out when you want to mix things up.
4. An elegant rabbit vibrator that’s great for dual stimulation
If buzzy vibrators are your thing, the award-winning Lelo Soraya 2 should be the next one you try. This dual-action toy allows for clitoral and G-spot stimulation, which is what you’re typically searching for if you prefer rabbit vibrators. But stack the Soraya 2 up against your average rabbit and you’ll notice it’s a bit of a rebel. The shape itself is an elegant spin on the standard look, which tends to feature a long phallic shaft (for G-spot play) and a short external arm, topped with faux “ears” that are designed for enhanced clitoral stimulation.
Instead of the cutesy bunny ears that jut out on most rabbits, the Soraya 2 has a slim, flexible arm that feels extremely accessible. At roughly two inches in length, it should be adequate for most to use for clitoral massage while also exploring internal play, too. As an upgrade on the original Soraya, this toy features new and improved capabilities, the most impressive of which are its extended modes—with the Soraya 2, you get 12 vibration speeds and patterns (comparatively, the original featured three speeds and five patterns). Like most Lelo toys, it’s also waterproof, so it’s great if you want to add a little more splish to your splash. And it operates at a whisper-quiet level, so discretion will always be the name of the game.
5. These unique latex condoms that are ultra-stretchy
Condoms are the cornerstone of safer sex and when used correctly, can help reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections and pregnancy. But unfortunately, if you grab the wrong type or size, condoms can also be a drag and you might have issues with slippage, breakage, or discomfort that can interfere with your plans and straight-up kill the mood.
You might have encountered ribs or studs on condoms before, but these Lelo Hex Condoms will be a singular experience on account of their design. Billed as the world’s first “re-engineered” condom, each latex shaft consists of 350 super-small yet visible and tactile hexagons, which the brand claims makes them more resilient than the average condom and less prone to tears. They're ultra-thin and meant to mold to the wearer’s shape and transmit more body warmth, plus their unique honeycomb-like texture may offer some extra stimulation, for a more sensual experience between partners.
Despite the Charlie Sheen endorsement controversy surrounding these condoms after their 2016 release, they remain hugely popular with shoppers and have more than 2,600 positive reviews and a 4.4-star rating on Amazon. In my experience, they offer a tremendous amount of stretchiness and the base stays snugly in place while still offering a bit of give, so they can accommodate a range of sizes. While you should absolutely do your due diligence before grabbing a box, if you decide to try them, they could be a great alternative to standard latex and, at long last, be the condom you’re actually excited to wear.
