You always remember your first. And I’m proud to say that the LELO Ella is mine — the first toy to give me a G-spot orgasm.

Now, I have long since gotten over the fact that sex toys are, inherently, foreign objects I’m introducing to the most sensitive parts of my body. And yet, when I slid the larger end of the Ella inside of me, I felt, for the first time in my sex toy testing life, like a toy actually belonged inside of me. It fit perfectly. It glided in and out of my vagina smoothly, yet still locked in place if I wanted it to. It was thick where it needed to be, and thin where it needed to be. It was soft and slightly flexible, and completely body-safe due to its 100% silicone material (par for the course with LELO). The thicker end of the Ella was flawless, and I wanted nothing more.

But there was so much more to come. By the time I convinced myself to retire the thick end, I was very, very turned on, which lead me to almost immediately thrust hard with the G-spot end. The flat and wide tip went straight to my G-spot, quickly stirring in me the now-familiar sensation of needing to pee, yet wanting to fuck myself even faster. I sped up. I gripped the thick end, dropped my head back, and fucked myself with the Ella as fast as I could.

I think I could feel it coming, because ejaculation seemed more within reach than usual. My jumbled thoughts drifted to what would happen if I did squirt. It occurred to me that, as I’ve seen in porn, I could potentially squirt quite far in practically any direction, but I could not be bothered with finding a large protective covering for the bed. I was too far gone in the throes of pleasure. The towel under me would have to do.

And right about then, as I was dismissing all thoughts from my mind, a warm sensation washed over my vulva… and I knew. I was about to come. Really come. And I’m not usually loud when I come by myself, but yells of pleasure involuntarily spilled from my lips. I lost all control, and I released. I came, hard and warm, lost in the moment. And best of all, for once, my clit was of no consequence. None. All the orgasmic feelings were concentrated deep in my vagina. I was in awe.

When I regained some semblance of sanity, I looked down and saw only a splattering of come on the inside of my thigh. That’s it? I thought. But then I got up and glanced back at the towel from whence I came, and there it was — a wet spot about nine inches in diameter. And under the towel, a corresponding wet spot on the comforter. And under the comforter, dampness on the sheets.

Being the huge dork that I am, I actually said out loud to myself, “no way.” I picked up the towel; I felt it, I smelled it. I was almost crazy with disbelief and euphoria. I promptly rushed to Twitter and updated in all caps. When my boyfriend came home, I clobbered him with details about the experience. And here I am now, gushing about it again (pun intended!).

I know the story of my first ejaculation is a heart-warming tale, but the point is, the LELO Ella is an incredible dildo. There is nothing I would change about it, and I can’t say that about many toys. It is gorgeous, perfectly shaped, completely sterilizable, and comes with a sexy black box and satin pouch. It practically oozes luxury, as do all LELO toys, and it truly works in harmony with my body in a way that no other toy ever has.

[Get the LELO Ella at SheVibe, Babeland, Lovehoney, or SexToyFun.]

Want the same sort of shape in vibrating form? Don’t get the underpowered and
undersized Gigi 2 — get the PicoBong Moka or We-Vibe Tango Glow (with Tango vibe).

Need something a bit cheaper, squishier, and with only the G-spotting end?
The Doc Johnson Thinny Minnie works well.

    I AM GETTING THIS.

    Awesome review, awesome toy. :)

    Awesome review! I remember clearly what my first time was like (being fairly recently, that’s not so hard) and I am uber excited for you!

    I already wanted this dildo, now I MUST HAVE IT!

  • whatkindanameis

    That is awesome. Congratulations! I just bought the Ella, but have yet to really put it to the test. I’m sooo excited for it now!

    Holy Moly Batgrrl! Kapow! What an excellent review. Make sure to pimp this one out for sure. I’m so thrilled for you. And, your writing was so articulate I felt live I was reliving my first time all over again. The wondering and then the sudden explosion! Fantastic :)

  • Christina

    I love the Ella. Thanks for describing it in such glorious detail.

  • Tuesday

    Your experience with Ella sounds so much like mine. I wonder who Lelo uses to test their prototypes when they’re designing a new product? Man, I would love to be one of their testers.

  • Anonymous

    I want to be a woman… no fair!

  • Miss Cinnamon

    =O_O=

    Now you have me wanting one…

    Congrats, Epiphora!

  • lady shi

    I got this one last week and i wished i had your same expierence but i didn’t… i don’t know what i’m doing wrong but i just don’t seem to get myself to orgasm. what should i do?? i’m sad

  • http://heyepiphora.com Epiphora

    @lady shi: That sucks! The two main things that help me achieve G-spot orgasms are 1. thrust really, really fast, as fast as I possibly can. 2. let go. If you get the wanting to pee sensation, you’re getting close. If you’re not getting it, you’re not hitting your G-spot.

  • Lady Alexandria

    Thank you so much for this review. You swayed me from purchasing Gigi to going for this simple yet beautiful dildo. I am so happy that you converted me. I would’ve paid a hundred-some dollars for Gigi (money that doesn’t come often since I’m in College)…so thank you!

    If it weren’t for you, I probably would have never bought Ella.
    And as you’ve continued to say, she is amazing!

  • Valyn

    I did actually by the Ella because of this review, heh. Still not squirting yet, but I’m workin’ on it!

    I have heard so many great things about Ella. I really should try it. And congrats on the first!

  • http://lovesickrobot.com lovesickrobot

    Oh man, I so want one of these now.

    I’ve been contemplating dildos for a bit because I want to know if I, too, can squirt someday. And I’m dying for a Lelo toy. The only thing that’s rough is that I’m a virgin and nothing FITS, ugh. Still, thinking I might spring for one for Christmas, unless I get lucky…

  • http://heyepiphora.com Epiphora

    @Liz: I think the straight side of Ella might be great for you, then, but not so sure about the G-spot end — it’s pretty intense!

  • Selective Sensualist

    Ya know, I *still* haven’t been able to squirt! I hate that needing-to-pee sensation and always want to stop. What I really need to do is invest in a Liberator Throe so I don’t worry about whether or not I *do* pee — and just keep going. God knows I have enough tools that should do the job if I could just really let go . . . *Sigh.*

  • Bri

    Ella has been on my wishlist FOREVER. I just need to get it and get on with the g-spot joy!

  • http://elodieonlove.com/ Elodie

    The white color of the Ella is by far the best.

  • Trix

    What do you think of this versus the Pure Wand for me? (I know you love ‘em both.) I love G-spot play but haven’t squirted yet. I’m still a virgin, but am in that spot where I’ve been using 1 1/4-inch diameter silicone dildos for a while and sometimes think I could handle something bigger when I’m aroused enough. I like softer materials internally right now, but the rounded dimensions of the Pure Wand sound like they might be more forgiving than the flat end of the Ella (since, above all, I hate a poking sensation against my G). Hmmm.

  • http://heyepiphora.com Epiphora

    @Trix: I have a solution for you: the Ophoria Beyond 3! It is shaped like the Pure Wand, but made of silicone and therefore more flexible. You may have to work up to the size of the bulb on it, though.

  • MF

    This toy is so sexy and alluring.

  • Trix

    @Epiphora:

    Thanks for the idea–hadn’t thought of it! The Beyond 3 shape looks great, and I’m drawn to the little filigree-type things on it. Got startled at the idea of 9 inches, but I guess it’s not all insertable.

  • http://www.namelesschaos.com namelesschaos

    This is what I love about sex toys the ability to discovery new things. I’m always kind of fascinated with stories of women learning to ejaculate with sex toys because my experience is the opposite as I’m a guy that learned to have non-ejaculate orgasms aka refractory period free orgasms thanks to sex toys.

  • Crystalline

    I love how something so simple in appearance can become the beloved of dildos. And it’s not too expensive either! I’m definitely putting this on my to-get list.
    Thank you for sharing your experience!

  • Katie

    I’m considering getting this for several reasons.

    1. I want to figure out my G-spot and learn how to squirt
    2. I want to try a dildo instead of a vibe (hated the Ina a lot btw…grr)
    3. I want something waterproof

    My only concern is the lack of success with the Ina, it makes me worried about spending money. Should I do it?

  • http://heyepiphora.com Epiphora

    @Katie: I was not a fan of the Ina either. It’s extremely intense. Some people love it, but that amount of pressure on my clit is just not cool. So I’m with you there! Don’t let it deter you from sex toys altogether — there are tons of great toys out there, and I’m sure you can find one that you love.

    Have you heard of the Beyond 3? As long as you can handle the size of the bulb, the Beyond 3 is freakin’ amazing… and I recommend it over the Ella because it is easier to use and not as oddly-shaped. Ella is great, don’t get me wrong, but the shape is very weird and takes some getting used to. Ella is also pretty short, so not as easy to thrust with as the Beyond 3.

  • rasha

    Thanks to your amazing review, i now have to have this dildo! darn you! I just hope i have such good results as when i get that peeing sensation, i run to the bathroom and actually pee–for like 5 minutes. we’ll see.

  • lyly

    i know this is an old post, but i’m shopping for ellas and would like to know how the color on your white one held up? White looks beautiful but I’d be sad if it got dirty quickly…

  • http://heyepiphora.com Epiphora

    @lyly: Ella is made of 100% silicone, which is completely non-porous and should not absorb any colors from anything. It does attract lint like most silicone toys do, but I think the white is absolutely stunning.

    Also, I’ve used Ella (and many other silicone toys) while on my period and have never experienced staining of any sort.

    *smiling*

    the very first time i squirted, was with my Master and he accused me of pissing on him!! Then smelled it and realized what it was.

    I’ve done it a few times on my own, and *every* time, i too stare at the bed in amazement. Wow… my very own pussy did that!

    woot!

    here’s to the powah of the pussy!

    GREAT review.

  • Teagan Shepard

    I’m glad to see this review. I generally don’t look up reviews on items I’m about to review myself, but I had just gotten this out to draft up the links and get ready to test and review when your tweet popped up. Now I’m expecting good things. :) I was wondering about the discoloration as well, as I have a white one also.

  • Destiny Cat

    i’m so excited for this to be me one day, actually squirting…ahhhh

  • BiscuitCrumble

    By the time I read this review, female ejaculation never crossed my mind as something that could be achieved – it was one of those things that only happen in porn, along with crazy positions and pristine white anuses. However, my curiosity was sparked by what you wrote and I spent quite some time wondering whether I should try it or not.

    I never had before a G-spot orgasm. I came close to a couple of times, but the sensation ended up getting lost because I never really bothered to focus on it properly. So, after some thinking, I finally decided to follow your steps and by an Ella.

    The first two times weren’t very successful, as I thrusted my dildo way deeper than necessary. When I finally figure out, though, where to stimulate, the sensation was hard to ignore (not that I wanted to!); it took me a while to have an orgasm, but when I felt it coming I released my muscles and OHMYGODWHEREISALLTHISLIQUIDCOMINGFROMHOLYFUCKINGSHITOHMYGOD.

    Long story short, your review changed my sex life.
