You might think I am something of a LELO addict by now and you wouldn’t be wrong. LELO are the world’s foremost pleasure product brand, topping wishlists worldwide and adding that touch of elegance and luxury to romantic, sensual gifts for him and her.

The LELO Insignia ODEN Cock Ring is part of the Insignia SenseMotion LELO range, which also includes LELO Lyla and LELO Tiani.

With the innovative SenseMotion technology you can control the vibrations of the product not only by pressing the function buttons but also with a swipe or shake of your hand when holding the wireless controller.

I had the usual sense of anticipation when the package arrived. I love opening LELO products, they are exquisitely presented with consistent LELO style and a box to store your new LELO goodies in.

You need to charge up the LELO Insignia ODEN Cock Ring first, of course. To do this you unscrew the tail part of the device from the main motor part and this reveals the socket. Plus in the wall charger and you will need to charge it for about 2 hours to get a full charge. While the device is charging there is a yellow LED that blinks; it turns to a steady glow when it’s fully charged.

The batteries are put into the remote control the same way as they are with the LELO Tiani 2 which I have also reviewed. In fact the LELO Insignia ODEN Cock Ring is similar to the Tiani 2 in many ways; the manner of recharging, the controller and the methods of controlling the functions.

It’s also entirely waterproof! Hurrah.

The remote control operates the main LELO Insignia ODEN Cock Ring from up to 12 metres away. I don’t know why you would want to be 12 metres away from your lover while using a LELO couples ring, but hey. You have that option.

There are 8 vibration settings for the LELO Insignia ODEN Cock Ring:

  • SenseMotion mode 1: Press + and tilt to get power from 10% to 100%
  • SenseMotion mode 2: Press () and shake the remote to get power at the level you desire
  • Vibration mode 1: Constant vibration
  • Vibration mode 2: Pulsing vibration
  • Vibration mode 3: Faster pulsing vibration
  • Vibration mode 4: low-high alternating vibration
  • Vibration mode 5: Oscillating vibration
  • Vibration mode 6: Varying vibration

With the 6 standard vibration settings you just press the central () button to scroll through them, and use the + and – buttons to increase intensity, or decrease it all the way to off.

To use you simply open out the flexible silicone tail part of the LELO Insignia ODEN Cock Ring and slip this around the base of his erect penis. The main vibrating motor part of the LELO ODEN needs to be facing upwards. I could then hop on top and enjoy the vibrations of the main unit against my clitoris, during sex.

It’s a great idea because the ring stretches to accommodate any size, it’s easy to put on and take off; also, the remote control can be used by him or by her.
The remote control ‘feels’ (ie also transmits) the vibration setting that is being felt by the main ring unit, so even if the two pieces are used entirely separately the person using the controller knows what the main unit is doing.

This means the controller can be used as a vibrator, or more likely, a gentle massager during foreplay or even personally if you want some help getting in the mood. Great to use in the shower or bath to spice things up a bit!

The main unit could be used by her as a clitoris vibrator, it’s basically the same as a small bullet or indeed the main vibrating motor part of the LELO Tiani 2.

We have really enjoyed using the LELO Insignia ODEN Cock Ring, although it does take some getting used to, with the newfangled and technologically advanced SenseMotion. It feels quite geeky at times, although if your man is into gadgets he’ll adore it even before getting into the bedroom.

Make sure you read the instructions fully and practise with the remote and get it clear in your head how to use, well before removing your clothes! You both really need to know what you’re doing with it. If you only start to experiment with it when you’re ready for sex you might find the research you need to do kinda ruins the mood.

You can’t control the LELO ODEN via the main toy itself (well I couldn’t, anyway), which is the main difference to the Tiani 2. The button on it is just clicked to activate it, so the remote control can seek and find it. The vibration settings are controlled by the separate controller.

This toy really guarantees you a superbly luxurious experience, being made from body safe and phthalates-free silicone and golden coloured ABS plastic highlights.

You need to only use a water based lubricant with the LELO Insignia ODEN Cock Ring as it’s mainly silicone, so a silicone lube would disintegrate your toy. That would not be good! You of course get the sample of LELO lube inside the pack but to be honest I have a store of sex lubes next to the bed which are all water based so I’m working my way through those right now.

In my opinion the LELO ODEN would be better if you could control it via the main unit too, instead of just with the controller. It would be interesting to compare this to the 2nd version which has been released.

If you are after a couples friendly love ring with high levels of luxury, power and gadgetry to boot, look no further than the LELO Insignia ODEN Cock Ring.

You can find it at Sexshop 365 for the reasonable price of £91.19 with free discreet UK delivery.

Update June 2016: links removed as the online sex shop no longer stocks this discontinued sex toy. You can buy the LELO ODEN 2 at Simply Pleasure for £108.45.
