LELO Gigi 2 Review

When the Gigi 2 came up for review, I had my doubts. LELO bills Gigi as “the world’s best-selling G-spot vibrator,” which doesn’t tell you much about the toy itself.

What is the LELO Gigi 2?

The Gigi 2 is a curved vibrator constructed of 100% luxury-feel silicone and ABS plastic with a flattish, wide end designed to stimulate the G-spot.

It’s completely waterproof up to a depth of one meter, and is a little on the small side, with only 4 inches of insertable length. It has eight variable settings and four very straightforward, easy to use control buttons.

When Good Things Come at Bad Times

When you’re waiting for a special delivery like this, of course, you want to make sure you are wearing pants and actual clothes every morning– just in case the mailman comes to the front door. Sadly, the one day I was cleaning the house in a bathrobe at noon was the day the mailman dropped off this package.

I can’t explain my relief that the packaging was utterly low-key, nothing to tip-off the delivery guy to the fact that I am a perverted degenerate except for the fact that I was wearing a bathrobe at noon. C’est la vie.

The real bummer was that this package arrived the same day as my mother-in-law showed up for a 9-day visit! While she had no idea what was in the box, I did, and the suspense was killing me. Eventually, she left, and the fun began. It was VERY securely packaged, with two straps that I needed a box cutter to cut.

Lelo packaging is what other sex toys wish they came in. It’s sexy, sophisticated, and classy.

The matte black box has a viewing window, and a perfect little compartment inside with all the extras tucked in neatly.

Unwrapping The Lelo Gigi 2

The Unit

My first impression of the Gigi was that it was really lightweight. The gray silicone is luxuriously soft and supple, but with no give. The plastic handle feels a little flimsy on first inspection, but the unit seems to be well-made. I also mistakenly assumed it wasn’t waterproof because the charging port is open with no silicone plug or port. A glance at the gold-lettering on the back of the box clearly states that it is fully waterproof–hooray!

The Controls

The control buttons are super simple. There is a + and a – on either side and up and down arrows to the top and bottom. I’m not going to lie– I struggled to turn the unit on. I eventually figured it out, but there are several different ways to achieve the same results, which can be pretty confusing.

I recommend reading the instructions and figuring out which interface is best for you. The worst time to try to figure this out is when you’re trying to get yourself off. Ask me how I know.

Extras

When you open up the black box, the foldaway compartment (with ever-so-subtle alligator print texture) reveals a packet of Lelo lube, a black satin bag for storage, the USB charging cable, and a card for the warranty registration. The 1-year warranty is a beautiful thing, but LELO even offers 50% off replacement within ten years. This is an unheard-of testament to the quality of these toys.

The Specs

This is a surprisingly petite toy, especially for any size queens out there accustomed to big, girthy vibrators. This is not that. The Gigi 2 is only 6.5 inches long, and almost half of that is the plastic handle. So, the business end only gives you 3.5-4 inches to insert. It’s only 1.5 inches wide, so again, not a girthy toy.

Whenever you press a button, a little LED light glows just to let you know that Gigi has heard your command and is listening. When you plug it in to charge, the light flashes so that you know it is powering up.

As I mentioned before, the port is easy to see– so easy, in fact, that I initially assumed this was not a waterproof unit, which broke my heart a little. Fortunately, I was wrong. The charger plugs into any USB port, which is really convenient, even if the cord is very short.

Business Time

Let’s stop beating around the bush. You want to know if the Gigi 2 delivers on its G-spot promises, and I want to tell you all about it.

First, use the lube LELO sends with the toy, and never use anything but water-based lube with silicone toys. If you do use a silicone-based lube or oil, you will completely ruin this wonderful, luxe surface and end up with a tacky-surfaced toy that feels gross and collects lint. Don’t turn this wonderful toy into a vibrating cat hair roller.

When I first turned the Gigi 2 on, I could not believe how quiet it is. Like, whisper-quiet. Like you could use this on an airplane under the blanket, and your neighbor wouldn’t hear it quiet. I mean, they would wonder what you were so damn happy about, but they would hear nothing.

I found the toy extremely intuitive to use and immediately appreciated the excellence of the design. I mentioned how lightweight the handle is–it’s perfect because the weight of the business end pulls it down to where it wants to be, and you can maneuver it with almost zero effort.

Using the Gigi 2

I will be the first to admit that I am not a big believer in the G-spot. I’ve had other G-spot toys that I mostly used as vibrators or to insert while I jerked off with my fingers.

I started off using the flattened end as a vibe around my clit, just to warm up and get in the mood. The vibrations are not extremely strong, but it definitely did the trick. Once I got going, I inserted it and found myself…totally not getting off. I was frustrated and worked with it for a little while before I just used the tip on my clit to get off.

But I didn’t give up. I was determined to figure out what all the fuss is about, so the next time I took a bath, I brought my new friend Gigi along to see what kind of trouble we could get into. A bathtub is a perfect place to play with Gigi–at least for me, it is.

First: the flared end means that, when inserted, it is in there, and it can’t just fall out easily. I took my time and probed around, gently letting it work its magic in every possible direction in the hopes that I could find my G-spot. Eventually, I did! And when I finally did, it was just perfect. Not an earth-shattering orgasm, but a nice, sustained, gratifying climax. I probably could have cum a couple more times, but I’d already been in the tub for almost an hour, so I passed.

Bonus: this toy is so quiet that someone inside the bathroom probably couldn’t hear its hum.

The Settings

There are a lot of settings, and I’m not entirely convinced that any of them are right for me. Some settings offer slow pulses; some have fast pulses, others feel like an engine revving up repeatedly (which feels fantastic). And then, there is the highest variable setting, which feels more like a sonic toy than a g-spot vibrator.

The last setting jumps from very gentle vibration to super-intense vibration and is considerably louder than the other settings. I can’t help but wish that the continuous vibration mode went as high, which it doesn’t seem to do.

Overall, I enjoyed this toy, but it took a little while to win me over. It’s powerful but by no means the most powerful vibrator on the market. What it lacks in power, it makes up for in good design. The dual-purpose function of the flat tip and the perfectly curved shaft are what make this toy great.

Someone who is more familiar with their G-spot might have a different experience, but for me, it was just an excellent opportunity to get to know mine a little better.

Clean Up

Gigi 2 is smooth and seamless, which makes clean up easy. You can spray it with LELO toy cleaner and rinse it off, or wash the vibe with warm water and antibacterial soap. You should never use alcohol or any type of solvent to clean your toy. Once it’s clean, pat-dry it with a towel or lint-free cloth.

Gigi 2 Pros

+ Compact size

This little vibrator is smaller than most insertable toys and lighter than almost any vibrator with its dimensions.

+ Versatile

Being able to use the head on the clit or the G-spot is very convenient, and is ideal for solo-use.

+ Great design

This is a well thought out toy. The shape makes it perfect for solo-use, the curve is just right, and the size was ideal for G-spot exploration.

+ Battery life

The battery lasts forever, and because it is rechargeable, you never have to worry about swapping out new bulky batteries. This also keeps the unit lightweight.

+ Quality

There is no question that LELO makes luxury sex toys. The materials are top-notch, and they function exactly as they are supposed to. The warranty guarantees that if anything goes wrong in the first year, you’ll get a replacement.

+ G-spot targeting

Once I found the sweet spot, it was pretty exciting. The shape of the Gigi 2 has everything to do with its ability to find and nail this target.

+ Charging

I have quite a few USB toys in my stable, and to be honest, I will never buy another battery-charged toy again. The convenience of charging anywhere is priceless.

Gigi 2 Cons

– Medium intensity

This is not the most powerful vibrator out there, and there were definitely some moments when I wished it packed a little more punch.

– Confusing controls

The buttons are not extremely intuitive, and it takes a little minute to get the hang of the controls.

– Fiddly controls

I found that sometimes my input didn’t seem to register on the controls, and it took a few tries to get things just where I wanted them.

– Small size

I don’t mind the dimensions of the Gigi 2, but someone who likes a lot of girth will be disappointed with how narrow the toy is. Also, the short length is not for someone who wants something huge, filling them up.

– Takes practice

It took me a few tries to get this toy to do its job and do it well. Finding the G-spot is a challenge and takes some work.

Conclusion

On the one hand, I wasn’t in love with the Gigi 2 right out of the starting gate because I couldn’t seem to find my G-spot. On the other hand, once it found its mark, it delivered the toe-curling climax I had hoped for. It is still a bit of work finding the right spot and coaxing an orgasm out of it, but it’s enjoyable work, and I’m not complaining.

As an addendum, I will say that using this toy with a partner has been a lot of fun and super-sexy. The Gigi 2 is unbelievably good at making me cum hard, fast, and explosively during oral sex. My husband reports that when I use it on my clit during sex, he can feel the vibrations when he is inside of me. This was exciting for both of us. The Gigi 2 is a welcome addition to the bedroom for both of us.

Up until now, I didn’t know that I could (a) find my G-spot and (b) get off from stimulating it. So, in many ways, this was a double-win. This isn’t a toy I would have gravitated toward naturally, but now that I have it in my arsenal, I couldn’t be happier. The design is brilliant, and the quality is top-notch. Anyone interested in exploring their G-spot will be satisfied with the Gigi 2. This toy is designed for slow, sensual pleasure and exploration.
