Lelo Mona 2 Review:
A Luxury G-Spot Vibrator Worth Buying?
Written by: Angela Watson | Updated: April 23rd, 2019
I'd say we're pretty spoiled these days as far as sex toys are concerned. Previously we had to contend with crappy $40 vibrators or uncanny valley dwelling dildos that really didn't seem like they were made to help us get off but more to dispose of a lot of leftover material at some factory somewhere.
Now however, there are toys of every shape and size made from every different material imaginable. Not only that, the designs of the toys are much more ergonomic and specifically shaped to the female anatomy than ever before. All kinds of rabbit vibrators, g-spot massagers, and almost everything you can imagine with all of the extra bells and whistles tacked on.
But are we forgetting our roots? The classic and mighty vibrator that doesn't need all of the flashy design trends that we've now gotten so used to, perhaps? As great as these other toys are, I do sometimes enjoy going back to basics.
That's what made my head turn (well, eyes focus more on the computer screen) when I picked out the Mona 2.
What To Expect From Mona 2
Just by looking at it, I can tell that the Mona 2 is trying to be as functional and simple as possible as far as vibrators go. There's only a vagina arm and it's curved just slightly to make tapping the G-spot a bit easier. The handle is made from ABS plastic while the insertable portion is made from 100% body-safe medical grade silicone.
The full length of the toy is 8.7 inches long and you'll be able to take advantage of over 4.5 inches of insertable space. At it's widest the toy is 1.5 inches in diameter and the overall way the width is distributed is there's a bulbous end portion that gives way to a more slender shaft.
There are six settings on offer and each has their own variable intensity level. Whether you want a gentle breezy vibration or a strong vibration capable of transferring sensation deep into your vaginal tissues, there's something on offer. The more outlandish patterns take form of different patterns of pulses or waves depending on the setting.
In the quietness factor, it's pretty manageable even at the higher settings. No louder than an average conversation at the highest settings and just a teasing whimper at the lowest, it's advertised as being somewhere in the realm of under 50 decibels.
It seems Lelo really wanted to make a single simplistic vibrator with all of their boxes checked, so the device is also completely waterproof up to a depth of one meter. The one meter depth is fairly irrelevant I find other than letting you know that unless you have a seriously luxurious bathtub you're going to be just fine in the shower or tub.
Powered by a lithium ion battery, usage time is pretty serviceable with the Mona 2. A little under two hours of charge will get you two hours of use, give or take about fifteen minutes or so either way depending on what intensity setting you tend to use most.
To summarize, you got a pretty versatile vibrator here that doesn't try to be any more complex than it has to be.
My Experience Using It
I'm having a really good streak with any 2nd iteration toys, there are usually a few things tightened up and by the second generation most toys are at their most perfect. It could be argued that these companies are beta-testing their products with paying customers, but maybe when you're a dildo scientist you can get caught up on one or two too many things and forget to go polish the rest.
Regardless of the case, I think the Mona 2 is a case of design gone right.
The toy isn't angled crazily or filled with strange ribs and edges, for whatever reason the bare simplicity of this toy really appeals to me. It is a vibrator in the purest sense of the word and is what I'd show someone if they wanted to see a "modern" vibrator as opposed to the AA battery chugging monstrosities of the late 90s and early 2000s.
A gentle dip to make the toy apply pressure to the sensitive G-spot area and just a slight taper, it's shaped very amicably to the tastes of the majority of women, although it might leave out the ability for more specialized sensations that some women adore.
The size is great and is complimented perfectly with the amount of power offered. There's no setting that I find is too much, it stops short of being a rumbly monstrosity and focuses mainly on quick yet firm stimulation.
The different settings give enough options to spice things up if you've gotten a bit too used to the vanilla way of vibrating, yet I find myself constantly revisiting the more consistent and simple patterns compared to the pulses. I just don't like waiting around for the next one, you know?
The most sober assessment of this toy I can make is that if you've just purchased a few $20 to $60 vibrators that aren't the cream of the crop and want to try out a "luxury" sex toy that's still familiar to you and within your experience level, go with the Mona 2. It's a perfect introduction to higher end vibrators and isn't intimidating while still being an extremely functional vibrator that shows you how top manufacturers like to get things done.
Where Can You Get One?
Myself and my husband buy all of our Lelo toys directly from the official Lelo website and that's exactly where I bought the Mona 2.

If you do decide to buy it, wherever you decide make sure its a reputable retailer. The reason I mention this is because Lelo toys have been subject to counterfeits over the years and many of them are available for sale online from shady retailers.
As much as I like my rabbit vibrators and more niche sex toys, it was refreshing to find a noteworthy higher end product that did a great job avoiding the problem of over-engineering.
There's no fancy app control or features that need their own separate instruction manual. It's a simply shaped toy made from good materials and all controllable through an easy to press button system on the remote. Long enough to serve most women and strong enough to be satisfying and on top of it all being completely waterproof, the Mon 2 is a great example of what benchmarks you should expect a vibrator to fulfill at bare minimum.
With vibrators, sometimes less is more.
