Oh, LAYAspot. I had wanted to fall in love with you so badly. Your curves hug perfectly against my public bone and clit, your controls are easy to work, and the fact that you come in tons of pretty colour combinations? Awesomeness. I thought we were meant to be. But there’s just one thing. A tiny problem, honestly, I almost feel embarrassed bringing it up. You’re not enough of a vibe for me. It’s not you, LAYAspot, it’s totally me. My clit just needs a bit more oomph from my toys, and sadly, you didn’t deliver. We can still be friends, though! Really!
The LAYAspot is a vibrator with a great concept from Fun Factory. It’s a small (4″ long, and 3″ wide) and ergonomically shaped external vibe that is curved to rest against your vulva and clit, and can be used during sex as well as for masturbation. It runs off two AAA batteries, and is made of Elastomed. You can use either silicone or water based lubes with it without harming your toy. The packaging says the Layaspot is ‘splashproof’, but I don’t feel comfortable dropping it into the sink, so for clean up I use either toy cleaning wipes or just a regular soap-y towel, then rinse it off carefully, avoiding the cap area. The buttons do tend to collect lube and come in the indentations, so you will need to use your nails or maybe a toothbrush to clean them out.
The controls are fairly simple, two buttons on the top with ‘+’ and ‘-’ signs. As expected, the ‘+’ sign needs to be held down to turn the vibe on, and then both buttons can be used to cycle through the different modes of vibrations and intensities. I found the vibrations to be a lots more ‘buzzy’ than ‘rumbly’, and even on the strongest setting, they weren’t quite what I needed.
I’ve tried using it during sex, (missionary and doggy style) and while while it was great to have vibrations against my clit/something to grind against, again, it just wasn’t enough to get me off by itself. The one time I managed to orgasm while using the LAYAspot, I was rubbing it against my clit with almost enough pressure to hurt, and not in a fun way. Definitely not an experience I care to repeat every time I feel like a quick orgasm. From what I’ve read, there may be some variation in the strength of the LAYAspot’s vibrations from batch to batch, so it could be that I just had one that wasn’t quite as awesome as it could have been.
*sighs* LAYAspot, darling. It’s not you, it’s me. And I promise it won’t be awkward when you see me with other toys. Hey, maybe you, me, and my Hiatchi can all go out and have a drink sometime?
