It’s a new year, and a great time to try out new sex toys! Recently I had the opportunity to try out the Loveo Ione, a new erotic massager wand by Loveo Co, who sent it to me for free in exchange for an honest review.
The Loveo Ione comes in a black box covered by a pink slip cover that’s in the color of the toy. The cover has product information on one side, and a drawing of the product on the other. The box has a lift-off lid, and a foam insert for the toy to rest on. The box includes the Ione, a USB charging cable, a wall adapter, a black storage bag, and a small instruction booklet.
Ione is made of a raspberry silicone that is firm and smooth to the touch with just a bit of drag. It is about 8 1/2″ long (measured straight up and down), and it has an ergonomic design that makes it easy to hold and use in a variety of positions, and the silicone is seamless. Silver-plated ABS plastic runs down the front of the toy’s handle and around the control buttons.
Ione’s head is about 1 1/2″ in diameter and 2” long. It’s a great size to hit your clit and the surrounding area. The neck is slightly flexible, allowing you to place Ione where you want it and still comfortably hold it during use.
This is a rechargeable vibrator, and the Li-ion battery, when fully charged, will allow you to use the toy for about 2 hours. The charging port is on the back side of the toy’s handle, and the jack is easy to fully insert. This is USB chargeable, so you can plug it into your computer’s port, or use the provided wall adapter. The control panel flashes when Ione is charging, and it glows steadily when the charge is complete.
The three buttons that control Ione are located on the front of the handle, and are, from top to bottom, +, o, and -. The plus button increases the intensity of the vibrations and the – button decreases them; there are 3 different vibration levels in all. The o button will turn Ione on or off if pressed for 3 seconds, and will also change the vibration pattern (there are 7 total) and activate the touch control. When Ione is placed in touch control mode, the vibration intensity decreases about 30%, according to the manual, and will increase to the maximum when you touch your body with the top of the toy.
Ione features vibrations that are moderately rumbly and somewhat buzzy. On the high setting they are quite strong, stronger than, I think, the Lelo SmartWand that I have. The vibrations aren’t terribly loud, although they are louder in the touch control mode, and any kind of background sound from the TV or music will mask the sound. The vibrations aren’t localized to the head, and travel all the way down the handle.
This is a water-resistant, and not waterproof, toy, so you won’t be able to use this in the shower or tub. It is easy to clean with soap and warm water, or you can use a toy spray or toy wipes. It can be air dried or towel-dried, and stored in either the included storage bag or in its box. Water-based lube is recommended, but if you prefer silicone or hybrid lubes, you can do a spot test on the bottom of the handle first.
So, Did It Work? Overall, I like this vibrator. The size is great for clitoral stimulation, as the head covers a good area. The handle is easy to hold, and the buttons are easy to reach. The vibrations are strong, and there’s a good variety of patterns. I also like that the patterns have 3 intensity levels to choose from. I usually use clit vibrators on high, and the vibrations are strong enough to get me to orgasm without much trouble. I also like that there isn’t a seam around the head, so it’s a lot easier to clean than the Fairy Miniature, for example.
The instructions that come with this don’t completely match the toy – my on/off are not the +/- buttons, but rather the o button. I think I’ve got the touch control by pressing the o button for a shorter amount of time than turning Ione off – the vibrations do seem somewhat less intense (I’m not sure if it’s 30% or not), and they get louder than they are when the toy is on regular mode, although they’re still not overwhelmingly loud.
Thank you to Loveo Co for sending me the Ione for free to review! If you’re interested in checking out this clitoral vibrator, you can pick one up at Pleasure’s Peak.
