USE / DESIGN /SHAPE Siri is designed for perfect clitoral stimulation. She is not insertable, but her vibrations are strong enough for full-body massage. That, combined with her small size of 3 3/4 x 2 inches, means she could easily transition to couple's sex, fitting perfectly between partners. A bit meatier than her earlier counterparts Nea/Lily, she's slightly smaller than a computer mouse but big enough to easily hold on to.
Looking at her from the top I cannot help but be reminded of Italian mobster shoes from the Prohibition era because of the way the silicone wraps around the plastic. Aside from that, the design is pure genius. Rather then being curved like many of her peers, the bottom rounds out like its puckering up to kiss your clit. This is perfect for those who tend to use pressure with toys, as the shape means it sits on the pubic bone and flows right down to the clit without having to bend your wrist.
MATERIAL / TEXTURE I have described silicone as petal soft before, but I didn't even know the meaning until I met Siri. She absolutely feels like a delicate, silky flower petal, not at all tacky, nor does she collect lint. The silicone is seam-free, non-porous and hypo-allergenic. The silicone is rigid because its covering the plastic body that turns to pure plastic on the back top and bottom. Rather, it looks like someone held Siri up and down, and then dipped the tip in silicone. I do wish the entire toy was silicone, but the combination of plastic and silicone really transmits the vibrations well. The seam between the silicone and plastic is not felt during use and there is no texture, the entire toy is soft and smooth. Siri is completely body-safe with no smell or taste, perfect for beginners to advanced users.
FUNCTIONS / PERFORMANCE / CONTROLS This toy Siri-ously delivers. The vibrations resonate quite strongly and equally through the whole silicone tip, not pin-point like other vibes, and taper off over the plastic. The vibrations themselves are of the very strong, low-frequency, deep, rumbly type… and to make this vibe even better, she comes with 6 amazing pulse patterns which are as follows:
1) constant vibration
2) slow pulse
3) fast pulse
4) revving of the motor from low to high, low to high
5) revving of the motor from low to high, high to low
6) random pattern
The 4 controls for this unit are located on top of the toy in a plus pattern. Very easy to manipulate during use, the ( ) turns the toy on and up to full vibration, while the (-) turns the vibrations down and off. The top and bottom controls scroll through the vibration patterns. One issue I have had is that there is no emergency off button, and on more than one occasion I have thought she was turned off only to find it was still on low vibration.
When it comes to discreet, this toy certainly is. If she was left out in the open, I doubt she would attract much attention, and even if she did she would not likely be made as a sextoy. She is small and easily tucked away in her toy pouch, thrown in a purse or suitcase for travel, and she is very quiet. I have actually used this toy with my husband in the room and a fan on without him even realizing it. The only downside? Siri isn't waterproof.
CARE AND MAINTANCE The combination of plastic and silicone are very easy to care for with only mild soap and warm water or wiped with down with toy cleaner, taking care not to get water in her buttons or in her charging port as she is not water-proof. In the event that you are sharing Siri with another partner, you can sanitize by wiping with a 10% bleach solution or rubbing alcohol. Allow to dry and store in her toy pouch or in her original packaging.
To maintain the life of her rechargeable battery, plug Siri into her charger when her control face glows red indicating a low battery. When the port is correctly connected the face blinks white and continues blinking until a full charge is reached (when it emits a steady glow). Avoid over-charging. Approximately 2 hours of charging provides up to 4 hours of vibrations.
The Lelo Siri is one classy lady and so is the packaging she arrives in. Her outer box represents the color of toy ordered, baring only Lelo on the top, opening to the signature black cardboard Lelo box that denotes you have received a true luxury item. Inside, Siri is suspended in a plastic hanger intended for store display, and nestled underneath is her charger, a white satin toy pouch, multi-language user manual, 1 year warranty, and 10 year quality guarantee (50% off replacement after the warranty expires) . Perfect for storage or as a gift box, the packaging is simple, elegant, and most importantly… discreet.
