When you are writing a sex toy review there are some manufacturers who you can count on to give their sex toys an interesting name. Lelo is one of them, though the Lelo Sensua Suede Whip almost breaks that rule – come on guys dropping an “L” from an adjective isn’t that creative. LOL
I am of course happy to forgive that little detail because this is a lovely product to use.
The handle is of transparent acrylic plastic, the one we received for review is tinted purple, terminating in a chromed metal ball. The 25cm long suede tassels are attached to the other end of the handle by a chromed metal ferrel. The suede is dyed to match the handle and smells very sexy, well, if like me you like leather 😉
The Sensua Suede Whip comes in three colours, purple, red and black. No surprises there, they have to be the colours most of us regard as sexy and opulent. And that’s what this sex toy is, it makes you feel indulgent. This isn’t a whip with which you would inflict pain, for that you need to look elsewhere. No, this is an implement of sensual pleasure that makes the wielder and the “victim” feel special and spoilt.
The whip comes in a compact shiny black box with an image of the whip on it and the names “Lelo” and “Sensua Suede Whip” picked out in silver and white. All very classy and understated. Inside that is a matt black box containing your whip, nestling in a single sheet of tissue paper. This is a sensual sex toy made to give as a present, it would look special from the moment the recipient began to tear off the wrapping paper.
In use the whip doesn’t disappoint. I let Suze try it out on me.
She began by gently teasing the skin o my back with the tips of the tassels. Their delicate touch was the subtlest of sensations concentrating my attention on the trail the dangling ends were making up and down my back. She lowered the whip, letting the full length of the suede strips trail across my naked skin. This is a soothing sensation, sensual and comforting which relaxes and enlivens you.
From my back Suze progressed to my ass cheeks again draping the Sensua Whip across them, caressing them with it.
When she began to strike me with the whip, softly at first, it was the gentlest of floggings. She interspersed her flicking of my ass with gentle strokes from the whip stimulating then soothing me. The intensity of the whipping strokes increased and the soothing , stroking interludes became more noticeably pleasurable as the contrast between the flicks and caresses of the whip increased.
Because the Lelo Sensua Whip is small and made from soft suede it is very difficult to inflict really intense pain no matter how hard you try. And Suze tried! That’s not what this sex toy is about, it’s for couples wanting a high-class toy to use when experimenting with their sexual sensuality.
You might expect the Lelo Sensua Suede Whip to command a premium price but it doesn’t. OK you can buy cheaper but the whip screams quality and does the job far more effectively than most cheaper and generally less sophisticated designs which tend to skimp on materials like the suede. This sex toy is a treat for you both and a treat that will not break the bank.
