    Review of the Month

    This month's winner is HappilyExperimenting with her review of the Lelo Mia 2 USB Rechargeable Clitoral Vibrator. We love her comparisons with the original Lelo Mia vibrator and relatable advice.

    "I purchased the black Mia 2 and was as equally impressed by the smooth plastic as I was by my original Mia; the quality of the vibe is outstanding especially now you can fully submerse it in water when you clean it - amongst other things! "

    "The Lelo Mia 2 is couple-friendly and would make a great first toy for women with partners as it is not intimidating at all. The lipstick-shaped vibe will go unnoticed in hand luggage for you travelling girls out there and it is fully lockable for the trip to Australia."
