LELO_Liv-14

I never owned the original LELO Liv vibrator but I, like many others, have spent time gazing at the LELO collection of vibrators online and wishing various ones were in my collection. The Liv always seemed a fine, solid member of the LELO family, a classic style vibrator with the famed LELO elegance and style.

LELO have offered to fill the gaps in my collection recently, sending me the items from their range that I both haven’t got and which ones I’d like to try. Simply Pleasure sent me the Mark 2, the LELO Liv 2 vibrator at LELO’s request, so here I am with my feedback after using the Liv 2.  Let’s take a closer look.

Packaging

The LELO Liv 2 vibrator comes in the usual LELO glossy outer box clearly marked with what’s inside, in the typical classy LELO way. Inside this box you find the black lidded box, again like the rest of the range. open the lidded box to discover the Liv 2 vibrator and the rest of the contents.

What you get in the box

I have the Navy Blue Liv 2 vibrator and I think it’s my first dark blue vibe! It looks very classy, almost royal. The Liv 2 vibrator is also available in Cerise, Lime Green, Blue and Plum colours from LELO, and of these Simply Pleasure currently stock Cerise, Blue and Plum.

As well as the LELO Liv 2 vibrator you also receive these in the box:

Mains recharging lead

LELO Authenticity/Warranty card

User manual

Black satin storage pouch

5ml sample sachet of LELO Personal Moisturiser (water based lube)

Measurements

LELO Liv 2 has an overall length of 6.5 inches, with 3.9 insertable inches and a maximum circumference of 3.6 inches.

Bonus features

As well as displaying the class, style and elegance we’ve come to know and love from the LELO guys and gals, Liv 2 offers even more brilliance for your buck. This petite sized classic style vibrator is fully waterproof and has 100% more power than the original Liv vibrator.

In addition there’s a storage pouch included so you can store your silicone sex toy safely, and it is of course a rechargeable sex toy so no need to dip into your battery stash or fear running out at an inopportune moment.

Powering up

I couldn’t see how long you need to charge up the Liv 2 for, on the accompanying material or on the website, but I tend to charge up my rechargeable sex toys overnight just to be on the safe side. You can get 2 hours playtime from a full charge.

It’s easy to charge up the Liv 2 vibrator, just plug the jackpin into the port for it on the end of the vibe and the other end into any mains socket. There is a white LED which flashes behind the controls on the handle while it’s charging, changing to a steady glow when it’s fully charged.

Functions and settings

Liv 2 offers more settings than the Mona 2, with 8 to choose from and enjoy. This is another “4 button” control LELO vibrator, so there’s + and – buttons to turn on, raise and lower the vibration speed and turn off, as well as arrow buttons to change the vibrating function.

You can press and hold + and – together for a few seconds to lock the vibrator, which is also how you retain the standby time. See my recent Mona 2 review for more info on this.

The functions are as follows:

  1. Constant vibration
  2. Pulse vibration
  3. Faster pulsation
  4. Fastest pulsation
  5. Ascending vibration
  6. Short oscillating vibration
  7. Longer oscillation
  8. Variating vibration

How it feels (to me) during use

During use the Liv 2 almost feels like the Elise 2’s baby sister. I do love the LELO Elise 2 vibrator and I’m not a newbie to vibrators so I like the sizeable qualities of the Elise 2. The Liv 2 vibrator feels like it would be perfect for the petite lady and/or someone new to vibrators and insertables.

The smaller size does make this vibrator both easier to wield between the bodies during couples sex, if you wanted to use the tip for clitoral stimulation or external massage elsewhere. But that’s not how I choose to use the Liv 2 vibrator. The smaller than Elise 2 size means that i can indulge in double penetration with my partner with more ease and less pain- which is always good. I do use the Liv 2 vaginally rather than anally for this – while he tends to my anal entrance – as it’s not really an anal sex toy so I keep it where it’s intended for use.

The silicone surface of the Liv 2 vibrator performs beautifully with water based lubricant (read my review of the LELO Personal Moisturiser here) and it also warms to body temperature fast.

Unfortunately it’s not the most powerful of the LELO sex toys collection, even with the ‘mark 2’ appeal. It’s certainly not the most powerful vibrator in my collection, so unfortunately I won’t be grabbing this one for personal use all that often. If you do find wand vibrators and intense clitoral vibrators too dramatic for you, then you will probably find the Liv 2 suits you more.

Summary

This is a thoughtfully designed vibrator which has more appeal to a petite lady or beginner to sex toys rather than a sex toys veteran and power/size Queen like me.

Although I enjoyed using the Liv 2 vibrator, it’s not one of my Top Ten Favourite Sex Toys, but I will definitely be hanging on to it for those moments when I fancy a gentler ride to arousal or a smaller insertable to use along with other toys or my partner.

The waterproof capability certainly presents more potential for pleasure in the bath or shower, as well as making the Liv 2 vibrator supremely easy to keep hygienically clean.

Buy if you’re after a smaller size vibe which is more in keeping with ‘real penis’ size without the ‘real penis’ look, if earth shattering vibrations are too much for you, if you’re particularly small in the vaginal area or if you’re simply a fan of LELO and must collect the set.
