Lelo SenseMotion Lyla
Lelo SenseMotion Lyla

I decided that it would be a good way of testing my latest remote toy and interesting if I tried it out whilst preparing the courses for my festive family dinner.  It’s so easy to get hot and sweaty when preparing a menu so a little intervention from a pleasure object was most welcome.

As you may be aware already the SenseMotion range of adult toys is the latest concept from Lelo.  Not only can you control your settings via the remote control but you can also tailor your vibratory pleasure with the slightest movement of the control because the unit has motion detectors built in to it to react to your every move.

Sounds good!  I couldn’t wait to put the Lyla bullet or egg you decide, in to action in the crotch of my panties.

I will add at this point that I will only be using blunt instruments during my kitchen naughtiness, don’t want to run the risk of ending up in casualty over the Christmas break.  Lol

Lelo have designed the Lyla with your comfort and stimulation in mind and have created an ovoid bullet with a raised ridge along it which should sit nicely between your pussy lips.  The antenna also doubles up as a retrieval cord, how considerate!  See nothing escapes an experienced toy reviewer’s eye.  😉

You get on with reading the Lyla’s features whilst I gather my ingredients together for this sponge cake I’m about to make.  Be back soon.

The Lelo Lyla is…

  • Fully charged in just 2 hours with a runtime of up to 2 hours, whilst the control unit (battery opertated) will give you up to 10 hours of play.
  • The remote has a range of up to 12 meters or 39 feet in old money.
  • Has a standby time of up to 90 days, so you can retrieve this toy for play days after charging a useful feature.
  • Features 6 vibratory patterns and variable speed control via the preset settings and movement control settings.

I removed my Lyla from its exquisite black velvet interior where it sat next to the trademark Insignia brooch.and popped out the remote.  You are provided with a  plastic key to assist in the removal of the back of the remote control.

After cleansing my Lyla and loading the batteries I slipped the vibrating bullet/egg in to the gusset of my panties and descended the stairs wearing a rather naughty grin.  Nigella eat your heart out!  Lol

Once in the kitchen I turned on the remote and the vibrations kicked in.  I started to tilt my control this way and that to enjoy the multispeed vibrations.  But instead of variable vibrations they stopped all together.  I persisted, tilting the control and waving it around in the hope that my bullet would start to vibrate once more.


I give every toy a chance to redeem itself should it have problems but in this case I’m afraid that I lost all faith in Lelo’s SenseMotion.  Previously I had tried their Tiani and had similar problems, even after switching control units in case there was a technical problem.   It seems that the toy itself is powerful and pleasureable but the remote unit lets it down, as soon as there is an obstacle in the path of transmition like pussy lips the remote is rendered utterly hopeless.

I even tried holding the remote mere inches from the bullets antennae and it still failed.  And it’s not like you can preset the setting and then place the Lyla in your panties, transmission fails and cuts out all together.

I’m sorry to say that as a remote toy the SenseMotion range (with the exception of the Oden cock ring) is not a product I would recommend you spend your hard earned cash on.  The range is pricey and doesn’t deliver therefore I cannot ask that you pay the premium price that Lelo products command.

Lelo really do have some issues to address and perhaps relaunch with a more reliable product.  I feel so disappointed because this could have been such a revolution in sex toys with its powerful motor, remote that echoes the vibrations felt by the user and orientation controlled vibrations; Sadly it falls well short of its initial promise.
