Mona 2I am so behind on this review. The reason? I HAVE BEEN USING IT NON-STOP. I’m not kidding. Since I received it from Burlesque Toys, I have been using it daily. I take it on trips with me, regardless of where I’m going. It’s always with me. I am in love with my Mona 2. The power, the shape, it’s rechargeable and waterproof. My clit has been waiting for this for a long time.

The Mona 2 is made by LELO a Swedish company and have quite an array of toys that they have designed. I had no experience with LELO prior, aside from the Tiani 2 (which I still haven’t used) and the Ella (which I love to take with me on trips as well).

Burlesque Toys, the company who sent me the Mona 2, is an online sex toy shop that only carries body safe materials, located in Delaware. They started out of necessity when their founder Grace Love went to a brick and mortar shop only to find toxic toys and leaving the shop feeling trashy (their word). They are a very enthusiastic company, always open to talking to customers. I was surprised when the Mona 2 showed up in three days after the confirmation email from them. Honestly their timing was perfect. I was stoked to be able to take Mona 2 with me when I went to Chicago for my belated honeymoon.

When I opened the mailbox to see the package containing my Mona 2, I squealed. Keep in mind that my mail box is one of those industrial ones that contains the entire block’s mail. Still, I squealed, I clutched the Mona 2 to my chest, and skipped home. I’m not kidding, I skipped. Neighbors be damned, I was fucking excited and I still am.

Mona 2 packaging

The Mona 2 from LELO comes with the standard LELO extras; the storage bag, the card of authenticity, small packet of LELO lube, and the charger for the toy.

Mona charge

The Mona 2 is amazing. I’m sure you’re sitting there thinking ENOUGH WITH THE ADJECTIVES! TELL ME WHAT MAKES IT AMAZING! Alright, here we go. The Mona 2 is made with from body safe materials – plastic and 100% silicone coating. The silicone is buttery smooth. It grips flesh gently when dry, which I love for when I’m using it externally. With a little bit of water based lube, it inserts easily. The buttons are a dream. Why are they a dream? There are four of them, they are all raised and separate. This makes it really easy to know which button I’m pressing when I’m not looking. Also, if things get a little slick, I’m able to easily grip them.

The Mona 2’s rumble is something to respected and admired. I mean it. The rumble is strong and fast, there is a buzz to it but just the right amount. The rumble carries through my g-spot stronger than I’ve ever felt. Usually when I stick a vibe in my vagina, I’m sitting there thinking, “I can hear it, so it must be on.” The Mona 2 doesn’t leave any question in my mind that it’s on. I’ve actually been afraid of using it internally. I’m not afraid of the orgasm, but rather of squirting all over my bed. Instead I take it into the bath, and have my way with it there, or in the shower. Doing it there I know I won’t be doing laundry over and over. I’m hoping to one day get my hands on a Liberator Throe (*stares dreamily into the distance*).

Mona 2 vibrations

The Mona 2 isn’t silent but it’s definitely quiet. It can barely be heard from the under the covers, which I appreciate. Nothing worse than reaching into my spank bank while trying ignore the sound of a legion of bees on high alert. There are 6 different patterns with the Mona 2 and 8 different speeds/strength settings. Personally I am in love with the highest, steady setting. After I’m finished, the lower settings ease me off of the Mona 2.

I love that the Mona 2 is waterproof, as I love taking toys into the water (shower/tub). I love that it holds a charge of two hours and doesn’t take long to charge. When the battery life is running out, the four buttons will flash. I like that it does that so I at least know that the end is coming. Usually when a vibe does without warning, I’m pissed off. When the Mona 2 dies, I sit there thinking, “fair enough, you did warn me”. The silicone covering of the bulbous end is smooth, but does need water-based lube for insertion. I do not recommend using the Mona 2 anally. There is no flared base and therefore not safe for ass play. The bulbous end is 4 1/2  in. in usable length, the circumference is 4 1/2 in. at the widest.

I am in love with my Mona 2. I never thought I would love broad vibrations. Honestly, after the Mona 2, it’s hard going back to go back to any other vibrator. In fact, when my Mona 2 does die, it takes me a long time to get used to the narrow vibrations of my Salsa backup.

The Mona 2 is a life changing toy, in my experience. That’s a huge statement, but it’s the truth. I never leave this toy behind when I go on trips. It has me coming with in minutes if need be (I love quickies when I’m busy). With the length of the Mona 2, I’m able to sit back and relax, and the vibe does all of the work.

Oh, Mona 2, how I love you.

Mona 2 sign

I saw this sign driving through a nearby county, and this is all I saw when I saw it.
Yes, sex toys are always on my mind.

 

Thank you Burlesque Toys for sending me the Mona 2, in exchange for my fair and honest review!

Ella*click to enlarge*

I checked my tracking number to see if Ella had finally been delivered (it shipped Thursday from a place 2 hours away), and I was surprised that it had. I had hoped it would be delivered later rather than sooner, as I had just put on a mud mask. I’m not a patient woman, and have very little shame, especially when it comes to my toys. So I threw on my sandals and strut down the street to retrieve my long awaited Ella.
