Intimate Melody Lava 3 in 1 Vibrator Set

Pleasure Panel review by Scandarella

Intimate Melody Lava 3 in 1 vibrator set

Whenever I’m given a selection box at this time of year, it’s usually in the shape of a stocking and filled with delightful things that my mouth will love. But not this time. When the postie knocked with a parcel from Cara Sutra, it was a very different part of my body that was in for a treat. Three of them, in fact.

The Intimate Melody Lava 3 in 1 vibrator set is a thing of beauty. As soon as I saw the packaging, I got a good feeling in the pit of my stomach. It’s a simple, solid, permanent storage solution in itself, and nothing about it is offensive. I like inoffensive, because, well it doesn’t offend me, lol.

Inside the box is a perfectly sized storage bag, (Yay!) an info leaflet, usb charging cable, two gorgeously smooth, silicone attachments, and a shiny silver bullet, already attached to the control unit. I was saddened by the bullet because, although the instruction leaflet said it was metal, it is in fact plastic. If I’d bought the Intimate Melody Lava 3 in 1 Vibrator Set thinking I was getting metal, I’d have sent it back in disappointment without ever switching it on. The leaflet needs to be changed.

The control unit has three buttons, situated front and centre. They’re raised and clicky, and this was where I encountered a problem, but I’ll get to that later. The top button powers the unit on and allows you to toggle through the settings (there are 7 of them), the middle one lets you toggle back if you go too far, and the bottom one activates the heat function.

Yes, I did say heat function. More on that later too.

After giving the Intimate Melody Lava 3 in 1 Vibrator Set a charge, the first part I used was the bullet, or rather love egg, as it pretty much is. I’ve got loads of love eggs sat around in a drawer, and most of them are – in a word – crap. They’re weak and buzzy, and they’re more frustrating than frustration itself.

But not this one. I was pretty delighted to discover that, while not anywhere near as intense as, say, a We-Vibe Tango, the vibes are deep and definite. Whether in the hands of myself or my husband, when used on my clitoris I had no trouble reaching orgasm. It’s weird, but even though the patterns were lost on me, having it on constant speed but lifted on and off my clit worked wonders. I’ve tried to do the same thing with other toys, but no dice. This is the only one it works for.

The wire that connects the bullet to the control unit is pretty short for use in any position more adventurous than missionary, so using it together during sex was less amazing than I’d have hoped, and when using it solo I’ve managed to pull it out of my own hand on occasion too by getting it trapped in the crook of my arm and so on.

The two silicone attachments are lovely to handle. Both are just slightly over 5.5 inches in insertable length with a girth of approximately 4.5 inches, and while one is pink and smooth, and the other purple and softly waved, both are curved enough to reach my G-spot.

The tips have a soft squish to them, but on the whole they’re rigid, so stimulating my G-spot is a breeze. The vibrations are dampened by the silicone though, and even though they’re still quite powerful, they aren’t enough to get much done on their own. A good amount of pressure is still needed, and that’s where my solo use problems started.

My husband doesn’t have this issue because he can see exactly what he’s doing while he’s down there, but when I use one of the ‘sticks’ with this toy, as soon as I get to the point where I’m dripping wet and needing some fast, firm stimulation, I hit the buttons. Like I said, I don’t get a great deal from the internal vibes, but having it suddenly change to a pattern from constant full speed is distracting.

You’d think that wouldn’t be an issue with the back button in the middle, but it’s totally unresponsive. I have to press it twenty times, and by the time I get back to where I want to be I have to start from square one.

If I hold the control unit a bit lower, my thumb rests over the heat button. I turn it on, I turn it off, and back on again. If I wanted the heat on I’d be well pissed, but the reality is, I don’t. It gets nice and warm in the hand, but once it’s inside me it’s neither here nor there. My vagina is hotter, and it heats the toy before the heating element gets a look in. I tend not to use it as it just means the thing goes flat quicker.

Charging time is approximately two hours, and one charge lasts me just over an hour when I use it on full speed constant the whole time, so that’s nothing to grumble about. Using the heat function at the same time as full constant reduces the time to around fifty minutes, or there about.

Now as this product isn’t waterproof and as the parts are all detachable, care is needed when cleaning. The Intimate Melody Lava 3 in 1 Vibrator Set leaflet recommends that each attachment is cleaned while still connected to the power unit to reduce risk of water intake. I say take a little more care than that, because there’s a noticeable gap where the two pieces join, and water likes to slip into little openings like that. I spray a lint free cloth with sex toy cleaner and make sure everything is completely cleaned and fully dried before storing.

So, while the Intimate Melody Lava 3 in 1 Vibrator Set screams quality on first sight, it has a few niggles that diminish it in my eyes. The vibes are strong, and the attachments are delightful, but the issues I had with the buttons and the fact that it’s a G spot vibrator which isn’t waterproof let it down. As a solo toy it’s a little frustrating, but when used with a partner it has plenty to offer.

7/10
