My Verdict

I am totally in love with one half of the Sway, and I would recommend it purely based on that! Having a heating vibrator makes for some truly luxurious pleasure and even though the other end didn't do a lot for me, I still think it is well designed and will suit other people. I just prefer something round or bulbous. The Sway definitely isn't the cheapest vibrator out there, but you do get a lot for your money! Two vibrators with a lot of different uses and a really amazing heating function! If you have the budget for it, this is a great addition to any sex toy collection and it really does provide something unique!

Buy, if you...

  1. enjoy rumbly vibrations
  2. want to try a heating sex toy
  3. are looking for a vibrator for anal, vaginal, or external use
  4. have trouble relaxing during sex or masturbation

Don't buy, if you...

  1. prefer girthy vibrators
  2. are looking for a soft, squishy vibrator
  3. don't like the idea of warming sex toys
  4. want a sex toy to thrust with

My Experience With Lora DiCarlo Sway

My Personal Experiences with Lora DiCarlo Sway

I was definitely skeptical at first. After being so disappointed by the Filare, I was worried this double-ended heating wand was making promises it couldn’t deliver. I am more than happy to admit I was wrong here — the effect it had blew my mind!

Bring the heat!

It’s like a hot stone massage for your clitoris! When you first feel the heat against your clitoris, it has a very sensual, indulgent feeling, similar to the warmth of a partner’s tongue. As you let the heat work its magic, it has the dual effect of enhancing sensitivity by increasing blood flow and relaxing your whole vulva. And let me tell you, this is an absolutely winning combination! Not only did the build-up feel incredibly luxurious, but the orgasms were also out-of-this-world good! They are rolling and intense in the best possible way. Internally, it felt good, but the inside of your vagina is already pretty warm, so the heating function doesn’t have as much of a noticeable effect, but it definitely increased my arousal, making g-spot stimulation more pleasurable.

The Vibes

Lora DiCarlo describes the vibrations as medium strength and rumbly, and I would say that’s a pretty accurate description. The low setting is deep and feels fantastic combined with the heat, and there is plenty of power in the higher settings that I would say could satisfy most tastes. The seven intensity settings also give you a good range to play with.

Double the fun?

The Sway has two ends — one designed for external stimulation and one for internal use, although both can be used for either purpose. I much prefer to use the end with the raised bump for internal and external stimulation. The other end has an angled tip, and I didn’t enjoy this end quite as much. I’m yet to figure out the right position for this end, but that’s, of course, a personal preference thing. I haven’t tried the Sway for anal play, as I prefer to keep my vaginal and anal toys separate, but I can imagine the heat and vibrations would feel pretty amazing!

Design

Lora DiCarlo Sway Design

The Sway has a dual ended design — a slightly slimmer one with a bulbed tip that has a raised stimulation point on it, which I love to use for direct clitoral stimulation or tracing around the outside of my clitoris. The other side has a slightly wider, angled tip designed more with the g-spot or p-spot in mind. Even though I didn't enjoy the g-spot end so much, I'm still a fan of the dual ended design, as it makes this toy a lot more versatile. It comes in a lovely deep, almost teal, blue color, which I think looks really beautiful and the whole design is very gender neutral.

Ease of Use

Lora DiCarlo Sway Ease of Use

As the Sway has so many different functions to control, there's a bit of a learning curve to working out the four buttons, and you'll definitely need to read the instructions before getting started. The large central button is the power button and also functions as the charge indicator. There are two vibration buttons that control the vibrating motor in each end of the toy, so you can control each end separately. The vibration button controls the vibration on the opposite end of the toy, so it's easier to change the settings during use. Each button allows you to scroll through the 7 intensity settings and 3 patterns of vibration. I'm not a massive fan of having to scroll through, but you can use the power button to return the lowest setting. There is also a heating button that turns on the heating function in both ends of the toy. I really like that the buttons light up, especially the warming button, as it shows when the toy is in the process of heating up.

Quality

Lora DiCarlo Sway Quality

Overall, the Sway feels like the luxurious, quality vibrator you would expect from Lora Dicarlo. The silicone is lovely and soft, the vibrations are consistent and the there's nothing that rattles around. It's a pretty quiet vibrator as well, only getting up to around 40 dB with both ends vibrating at maximum power. The only thing I did notice is that the silicone feels a bit thin and loose so you can feel it separate from the main body, but this doesn't affect the usage in any way. The Sway comes with a one-year manufacturing warranty. Make sure to activate your warranty card that comes with the Sway just in case anything does go wrong.

Price

Lora DiCarlo Sway Price

Lora DiCarlo is a luxury sex toy brand that comes with a high price tag, but in this case, I would say it's worth it! You are essentially getting two toys in one and you can use it in so many different ways! The heating technology is just fantastic and adds so much more pleasure! Also, you really get a luxury experience from start to finish with this toy, and the little details like the charge indicator light and beautiful yellow storage bag are the cherry on top!

Performance

Lora DiCarlo Sway Performance

The Sway's vibrations are decently rumbly, and are pretty powerful on the higher settings. I would say they are well matched to the toy, in that I don't necessarily want crazy strong, knock your socks off vibrations with the heating function — it's much nicer to enjoy the slow build. I was also pleasantly surprised by how quickly the Sway heats up and how the heat disperses from both ends. It's also pretty quiet even on the higher vibration settings. I also love that the charge indicator will flutter when you have less than 5 minutes charge remaining — so helpful if you aren't great at remembering to charge your sex toys! The charge life is reasonable considering it vibrates and heats.

Packaging

Lora DiCarlo Sway Packaging

It's no secret that Lora DiCarlo products are an unboxing experience! The Sway comes beautifully presented in a study book-style box with a slip cover. Inside, the box opens up to reveal the Sway on one side and the charger, manual, and cheerful yellow storage bag on the other. While I do love the look of the box, it does use a lot of materials.

Materials and care

Lora DiCarlo Sway Materials and care

The Sway is waterproof and covered in medical-grade silicone, making it nice and easy to care for. You can either use a fragrance-free soap or sex toy cleanser and some warm water to clean the Sway before and after each use. Also, make sure to clean in the textured areas of the buttons to make sure it all gets a good clean! You should also only use water-based lubricant to protect the toy's materials.

Special feature

Lora DiCarlo Sway Special feature

The Lora DiCarlo Sway’s special feature has to be it’s warming function! It heats to a pleasant 104° F, which might not sound like a lot but it really has an amazing effect! The heat increases blood-flow to wherever you use it, bringing enhanced arousal and sensitivity, and enhancing the effect of the vibrations.
