I am a massive fan of Lelo vibrators, although they are pretty pricey for sex toys. I think that is half of their appeal though. Investing in a Lelo is like you are truly investing in and valuing your own sensuality.
When you buy a Lelo (in my opinion), you’re declaring to yourself that you are worth the best.
What’s in the box?
The beautifully packaged (very strong) gift box contains your new Lelo Insignia Soraya on a bed of velvet (nice), a satin storage bag for safe and discreet keeping, a mains charger, personal moisturiser (posh term for lube), a Lelo brooch to wear proudly and a very confident 10 year warranty.
What does it look like?
I always love the design of Lelo toys, they’re what you call ergonomically designed. So they just ‘fit’ you and your womanly curves. Nicely. Plus this makes them look classy and feminine too.
The Soraya has a nice loop to hold on to whilst you’re using it.
One reviewer on Lovehoney described it as a “like a perfectly engineered piece of art” and I’d agree with that. You’re not just buying a luxury rabbit vibrator, you’re buying art!
To be honest I’ve never been a fan of sex toys in black, ever. But unusually I really love the Lelo Insignia Soraya in black. The gold adds a touch of sheer class to it. I also love the purple version which is the one I opted for.
Whichever colour of the Soraya you go for, both are beautiful and coated in soft, seam free silicone.
How does it work?
The Lelo Insignia Soraya has two separate motors which gives it a lot of strength in both vibrating areas, the rabbit bit and the main insertable section.
You control it with the 3 built in push button controls and there are 8 functions you can choose.
There’s the plus button for switching it on and increasing speed, the middle button is the function button and the minus button is for switching it off and lowering speed.
Keep playing around and see which speed and setting you like best.
How big is the Lelo Insignia Soraya?
The Soraya is a nice size at 8.5 inches long with an insertable length of 5 inches. It’s widest circumference is 4.1 inches.
How is it powered?
It’s mains rechargeable! Yes! I love mains powered sex toys because of the ease of just plugging them in, charging them up and away you go. Gone are the days (in higher end toys anyway) of messing around with batteries that last for about 10 minutes before they’ve run out.
The Lelo Insignia Soraya takes around 2 hours to fully charge it and it last for 4 hours of vibrating time.
What are some of the features?
It has a travel lock so you know it won’t end up buzzing in your suitcase during security checks. To lock it you just hold down the plus and minus buttons together, it flashes to show you it’s locked. When you try turning it on it then won’t turn on until you unlock it.
The Lelo Insignia Soraya is completely waterproof so you can use it in the bath with no problem. It’s bizarre at first submerging it under water when it’s mains charged – but don’t worry, it doesn’t break it! The special seal where the mains lead plugs in is covered by the silicone.
When you get yours you’ll see what I mean. You can also see Annabelle Knight demonstrate these features too in her video review.
How loud is it?
Well are you are you ready for this? What can you expect from a high end sex toy like the Lelo Insignia Soraya?
It is virtually silent.
I kid you not. You can check out the video of Annabelle Knight on Lovehoney demonstrating this for an idea of noise level. I have used some ridiculously loud toys in my time, and this one is like a little whisper. Shhhhh.
It’s an ideal toy for when you need to be very very quiet like when you’re sharing a house with someone else. They won’t hear it.
What are the pros?
There are so many good points to the Lelo Insignia Soraya (can you tell I love this toy) which is why it’s firmly in my list of 7 of the best rabbit vibrators! Here’s a round-up of my fave features!
Gorgeous look and design and colours.
Water-proof and submergible.
Nice and easy to use well-placed buttons.
A good size and the loop handle is good to hold.
The gorgeous gift box, velvet and extras that come with it.
It’s pure luxury.
What are the cons?
The only real one is the price. If you have tried this yourself and would like to add anything here please feel free to comment or message me.
It’s an expensive toy for sure, but if you’ve got the cash to spend on a high end luxury sex toy, the Lelo Insignia Soraya is one to seriously consider.
Other reviewers have said that there is no way to check the level of charge. I can see this feature being added in future but it is a little unfair to criticise it for this, seeing as you can’t check the charge level of a battery-operated toy either.
The fact that you can just plug it in and charge it up is pretty damn cool to me. You can also use it whilst it’s on charge, if you really wanted to.
Another reviewer said the free badge was pointless. What are you seriously saying you wouldn’t wear your Lelo badge with pride? How dare you! (joking a little here).
