Let me preface this review with a little story.
A few years ago the SaSi clitoral stimulator came out and it was attracting a great deal of attention. Everywhere you looked, from bloggers to sex industry experts, it was popping up all over the place and they had nothing but great things to say about it and each and every single time, the phrase “It’s just like oral sex!” popped up. I was intrigued. In fact, I was more than intrigued, I was in lust. I love oral sex; it’s great, I can never get enough of it, so a toy that received numerous praise for giving off those same kind of sensations made me really, really want it. The reason why I do not have a SaSi, even after being in lust with it for years now, is because it carries a $150 price tag. Yeah, not happening.
Seeing how popular the SaSi had become and how those who couldn’t afford the clitoral stimulator were still keeping their eye on it, I received an email featuring clitoral stimulators that are kinda sorta like the SaSi, except they came with a lower price tag. Not long after I had the chance to review the Better Than Chocolate clitoral stimulator by Nomi Tang. Long story short, I really hated the Better Than Chocolate. Unless I had a good number of hours–yes, hours!–to dedicate to myself with the inclusion of additional toys or my partner, I didn’t even bother. In fact, it has pretty much been ignored for quite some time now.
The Laya Spot by Fun Factory is very much like the Better Than Chocolate clitoral stimulator. It’s essentially the same toy. It’s an external vibrator shaped ergonomically to hug the curves of your body.
The Laya Spot is super cute. While the Better Than Chocolate could be classified as “elegant” the Laya Spot is like its quirky, cuter sister that’s a lot more fun. And it is more fun not only in its appearance, but also in its entire execution.
The Laya Spot is a multi-function, multi-speed vibrator. By pressing the small ‘plus’ sign on the top of the toy and holding it in for five seconds, it starts a straight-forward vibration at its lowest level. As you hold the button down, the vibrations gradually become more intense. When you press the ‘plus’ sign button again it will cycle through three differing vibrations and pulsation patterns and by pressing the ‘minus’ sign button, the intensity of the vibration will gradually decrease. These controls make it so that you can pinpoint exactly what type of vibration you find most pleasurable at the perfect level of intensity.
Let’s talk about the intensity of the vibrations for a second. They are good. I’d even go as far as to say that they are great, especially for a toy that takes two AAA batteries. No, they’re not going to rock your world or rub your clit right off, but they were certainly intense enough to get me off three times in about 30 minutes my first time using the Laya Spot and two of those orgasms clocked in at around 10 minutes in.
A friend of mine has already made it known that I prefer very intense vibration and pressure and because the Laya Spot is made of elastomed, which is a hard material while also feeling soft to the touch, I was able to press it up against myself with enough pressure for it to feel pretty great. However, it didn’t get me off every single time I used it. The first time was definitely the most intense and it has trickled down in its abilities the more I’ve been using it, but I think it’s just because I really like variety and sometimes I could have used a little more intensity in the vibrations. You can also use water-based and silicone-based lube with elastomed and the Laya Spot came with a one-use packet of silicone-based lube that I really did not like, but only because I am not a fan of silicone-based lube. I’ve found that not using lube at all with this toy worked best for me.
The Laya Spot has become a fantastic working buddy. For a few days now, while sitting at my desk getting my work for the day done, I have sat on the Laya Spot, with the curve of it pressed perfectly against me. A very slight rocking motion on it and a few minutes later and we have a solid leader in the ‘Ways to Have Fun While Working’ game.
The Laya Spot is definitely a great clitoral stimulator and for $20 less than the Better Than Chocolate, it’s not only a better clitoral stimulator in terms of how it performs, but it’s also a much better deal.
I received the Laya Spot for review. No other compensation was received, and opinions are my own.
