Sex Toy Columnist Uses Nothing but LELO’s Enigma for a Month Straight: Here are Her 5 Tips & Tricks
Sex toy company LELO has been dubbed “the Tesla of sex toy companies” by Vice and our latest device has gained much attention, so here’s how to get freaky with it.
Enigma launched, and five-star reviews came flying in, stating that it offered women pleasure that was “out of this world”.
Giving you the option for both kinds of stimulation, our luxurious dual action sonic massager is designed to titillate both the entire clitoris – its visible and invisible parts – and G-spot.
Thanks to sonic waves giving you gentle or intense pulsations, you can create the build-up to your orgasm that you so desire.
With eight pleasure settings and being duo action, it is a toy designed for the explorers amongst us who are ready to discover the next orgasm so intense it feels as if you’ve entered outer space.
Sex toy review columnist and journalist Sophie Blackman used nothing but Enigma for a month straight to test every inch of it out to bring you some tips you may not have thought of.
So, if you want to go to another dimension of pleasure, listen up because here’s how to get the best out of Enigma.
Here are Sophie’s 6 tips and tricks to take your Enigma masturbation session to Mars!
Lube the F up!
It’s crucial when masturbating as, believe me, even if you are wet, you can still get friction sores when using a toy that possesses intense settings as Enigma does.
LELO’s personal moisturiser is my go-to as it is a water-based lubricant. Anything but will make me very uncomfortable downstairs.
It gives me peace of mind as it is also unscented and uses glycerine and paraben-free formula.
Also, silicone-based lubricants will damage a silicone toy, so make sure you are using a water-based one with most LELO products.
Lube will make your experience more pleasurable for many reasons. First, while sounding completely obvious, it helps you increase your lubrication and thus, protects you from nasty injuries (we have all been there when we’ve massaged for way too long without any lube. And yup, it makes it very hard and sore to pee).
Avoid this painful aftermath by smothering or just dabbing a bit of lube where you feel you need it.
Sophie’s personal tip: Coat the suction section of Enigma in lube. It makes it feel like a tongue… do I need to say more?
Give it a squeeze
We have all been there when you have been masturbating for a while, and the arms start aching.
Once the ache sets in, you can no longer enjoy the moment as much, the imagination becomes distracted by sore arms, and the thrill starts to leave you.
Once inserted and in a comfortable rhythm, a Lil tip with Enigma can kick back and relax if you hold it and squeeze it between your thighs.
The pressure and being arms free makes it feel as if, in my opinion, you are receiving head and being fingered at the same time.
Except, you know it’s not going to stop unless you want it to.
A truly out of this world experience.
After all… it’s built to be self-sufficient, so make the most of it!
Sophie’s personal tip: Prop a pillow under your lower back (just above your rear) and lay back as you hold Enigma inside you. It will send you into another dimension, that’s for sure.
Have a fiddle about
The Enigma has eight sonic waves settings to play with, and you are in complete control of all of them.
Unlike dual-action foreplay, say being orally pleased and penetrated by fingers or a toy, you are in control of the pace and pulsations.
This means you can fiddle about at your own pace and create the rhythm you need to serve your needs.
Whether it’s slow and steady pulsations or fast and intense, have a play about and discover what feels best.
It can be easy to find one setting you like and always set it to that one, but don’t forget to explore.
The same goes for how you position yourself. So often, we masturbate lying down but give it a go standing, leaning against a wall, or just sitting up in your bed.
Changing the settings, position, and environment can help you reach new and exciting orgasms – especially with a unique toy such as Enigma.
It’s whisper-quiet as well, so there is no reason you can’t take it to new places… even if just in your home.
Sophie’s personal tip: Enigma is waterproof so if you’re tired of masturbating in bed, take it to the bathtub. The water helps lubricant (of course, still use lube) and the settings under the water… believe me, you will want to try it!
Quality over speed
Since Enigma will stimulate the entire clitoral area, it is crucial to remember it is more potent than traditional vibrators.
While it can make you instantly orgasm, the trick is to try and delay the pleasure if you can.
Sounds odd, right? Isn’t it created and designed to give you fast orgasms?
Yes and no. It’s the ideal toy for the busy vulva owner who wants to get off quickly and the perfect teasing partner.
The quality of your orgasm will always be better than the speed of it.
If you build the suspense up, well, it is then that you will have an Earth-shattering orgasm that you see all of us sex columnists writing about.
Enigma can give you the best of both worlds.
Sophie’s personal tip: While building up the suspense of teasing oneself, you can use Enigma in lots of different places over your body – well, the suction part anyways. I like to use it on other erogenous zones, such as my inner thighs and nipples. Some also find pleasure from the feet and under the armpits.
Class it as self-care
Masturbating is self-care. You are doing something kind to yourself that is releasing endorphins and bringing you to climax.
So, treat it as such and make it as much of a vibe as you can.
Music helps some in the background, lighting candles, having a play in a bubble bath.
You could also pop your porn on your TV for a chance to feel like you’re watching it on the big screen.
Or curl up with a raunchy erotic fiction and a bar of dark chocolate (proven to help get you in the mood and a tasty treat).
Enigma is here to help take you to a different place of pleasure. Setting the scene will only make it more relaxing and thrilling for yourself.
Sophie’s personal tip: Enigma is my favourite toy to use because it ticks all my self-care needs. I can hold it inside me between my thighs while I read my beloved erotic fiction. Before, it was a tough job of multi-tasking, holding the toy in one hand and my book another. Thus, your hands are also free to play with the rest of your body. So, my tip, make the most of Enigma and give your whole body some love.
To help you delve into your pleasure even further, expert Sex and Intimacy Coach Lucy Rowett has offered a few encouraging words on why sex toys are such a good thing for women and vulva owners.
Rowett explained how a toy like Enigma is ideal if you want to explore your sexuality.
“Sex toys are so amazing to add to your life if you want to explore your sexuality for lots of reasons,” she said.
She continued: “First and foremost, especially if you are a woman or person with a vulva, you won’t have received many affirming messages about exploring your pleasure and sexuality for yourself, or any at all.”
“Many women and people with vulvas have never had an orgasm until well into their 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s or beyond- simply because cultural messages told us that sex is primarily for a husband or boyfriend, and not to have pleasure ourselves.”
“For many women and people with vulvas, their first orgasm is with a sex toy- isn’t that incredible? By exploring sex toys, you can start to own your pleasure more and make it a priority.”
Rowett says sex toys can help you “explore your full pleasure potential” by stimulating different spots with different sensations.
“Having a sex toy can be a visual reminder to yourself that your pleasure does matter,” she said. “As they are becoming more widely accepted and even celebrated, owning a sex toy or three can be your way of owning your sexuality.”
