Lelo Sex Toys - Interview by Juicy Sex Stories
1. Can you tell how Lelo came in being and about your philosophies?
The short version of LELO's. They were decided on a sex toy, and were shocked to find nothing. This was back in 2003; the state of the industry has come a long way since then, thankfully.
Their experience had them wondering why any woman would buy the cheapest-looking and poorly-designed phalluses that lined the store to offer sex toy customers with another, better option.
The lack of anything worthy of their own, the three of them to embark on a pleasure project that would change the face of sex toys forever, based on the idea must be designed with women in mind.
2. What stands your products apart from the rest?
Customers really connect with their products for the sake of safety and design. Our products offer pleasure - obviously - but there's a deeper pleasure that comes from knowing how highly you're valuing your sensuality to treat yourself to the very best.
Another way that LELO stands out to receive from within the intimate lifestyle industry; just in the past week we've been named Best Pleasure Products at the Erotic Trade Only awards, and our personal massager ORA™ took away the Product Design Prize at Cannes Lions 2014 - perhaps our biggest mainstream award yet!
3. Can you tell us how you can make sure your products are safe?
We can guarantee that our products are 100% safe and reliable LELO item's life cycle.
Unlike most companies who are simply outsourcing their manufacturing and materials purchasing to a factory somewhere they are never visited, LELO owns its own factory, hires the workers that make their living there, and buys the materials that go into every product.
Speaking of materials, our industry is not a heavily-regulated one, meaning that many customers can not know what goes into their sex toys - exactly why we try to educate buyers on what to look for when it comes to making an informed and safe purchase (we will greatly appreciate the bloggers and salespeople out there who do the same).
The materials that go into your LELO are pass testing, they do not get brought into our factory. It's this strict adherence to the standards that these promise LELO customers.66
4. Is there a product you recommend for first time users to get the best experience?
It all depends on how they take their individual pleasure, and whether or not it's their first-ever sex toy or just LELO product in general.
For their first-ever sex toy I'd say something like that 69 SIRI™, an incredibly powerful external vibrator, because the best place to start with sex toys is a clitoral vibe, and the varying power levels give them a whole bunch of different experiences to explore.
Couples seeking their first sex toy to use together can consider a vibrating ring like
TOR™2. It's worn around the base of his penis during intercourse and provides a deeply resonant vibe that enhances stimulation for both partners.
As for someone experienced in sex toys but not with LELO's catalog, I'd point them in the direction of our G-spot vibrator GIGI™2. GIGI™2 has converted thousands of women who are simply curious about the G-spot into full-blown converts singing the praises of this pleasure point. What's more, it has a fantastic secondary use as a clitoral vibrator - a little stroke of genius that our designers have included into the final product.
5. What is your best selling product? Are different products more popular in different countries?
Our most popular vibrator for years now is GIGI2. It's designed with a flattened tip to stimulate the G-spot, however customers have discovered that it also makes a perfect external vibrator as well. These dual uses are very important for us, because they are very expensive. our dual-action vibrator Soraya. It may be because it does not look like any other vibrator out there - simply put, it's a gorgeously-designed personal massager. It's probably both, really.
We say ‘pretty much’ because when it comes to customers in the US and Canada it’s all about our dual-action vibrator Soraya. It may be because it doesn’t look like any other vibrator out there – simply put, it’s a gorgeously-designed personal massager – or it might be because it feels incredible when being enjoyed. It’s probably both, really.
6. Your products are often reviewed by sex bloggers? How do you choose which bloggers review your products?
All of our products are reviewed by bloggers, and it is always the case that they are the best of quality. 79
Many bloggers approach us to review our products, and we try to accommodate as many as possible, however we also select the best voices from among them; the ones with the most experience that understand their audience’s needs. Writers and members of the sex toy blogging community who provide readers with helpful insights are the ones that should be valued, which we try to do as much as we can.
The bloggers we really like and appreciate are the ones that that is, they are not in the right place, they are not in the right place. It's easy to forget that they will not be able to read it. Do you have any new and exciting products you can tell us about?
7. Do you have any new and exciting products you can tell us about?
We'll be unveiling a number of exciting new products in the coming months, but of course we'll not give anything away just yet!
