Lelo Sila — Test & Review

Lelo Sila

The Lelo Sila is a clitoral suction stimulator which uses Lelo's sonic wave technology to deliver waves of stimulation to your clitoris. The deep, wide mouth of the Sila provides broad stimulation the penetrates deeper into the internal clitoral structure. Unlike traditional vibrations, the Sila provides indirect stimulation, which means it never actually touches the clitoris. This is fantastic if you find vibrations leave you feeling numb and overwhelmed. Sila was designed to be a gentler, more sensual clitoris stimulator that really gives you a slow build up and allows you to enjoy every last drop of pleasure.

My Personal Experiences

My Personal Experiences with Lelo Sila

It’s All in the Build Up

I absolutely love suction style toys and don’t know how we survived for so long on a meagre diet of vibrations. For me, the Sila blows all of the other suction vibrators I’ve tried out of the water. Whereas other clit suckers do an amazing job of taking you from 0-100 in a matter of seconds, the Sila is designed to give a slower build up, allowing you to enjoy more of the good stuff! I really love that Lelo decided to make what is essentially a weaker toy. Masturbation shouldn’t always be something you rush through. Slowing down has so many benefits, such as having more time to connect with your body and allowing you to explore the different levels of arousal in more detail. It’s also fab for edging!

The Best Solo Orgasms I’ve Ever Had

Aside from giving you more time to enjoy the thrumming sensations, the slow build up has led to some of the most incredible solo orgasms I’ve ever had. Not only does that intoxicating pre-orgasm feeling last much longer, the orgasms themselves just seem to keep going. Not to mention, the lower intensity makes it easier for me to go for a round two.

Conclusion

I absolutely love the Sila and refuse to ever be parted from it. It has easily become my favorite sex toy and the one I find myself reaching for most often. There really is a LOT to be said for slowing down and taking the time to really feel all the amazing sensations your body is capable of. I cannot recommend the Lelo Sila enough!

FAQ

How to turn on Lelo Sila
Hold down the center button to turn the Lelo Sila on. If that doesn't work, you mostly likely have the travel lock activated. To turn the travel lock off, hold down the + and - buttons at the same time.
Is the Lelo Sila weaker than the Lelo Sona?
Yes, the Sila is a more gentle clitoral suction stimulator that helps you enjoy a more gradual build up.
What lube can I use with the Lelo Sila?
As the Sila is made of silicone, you should only use a water-based lubrication with it.
How loud is the Lelo Sila?
It is quieter than some other clitoral suction stimulators but it isn't silent. I would say you could maybe hear it in the next room if it was quiet.
