An Alien Invasion-Neila Review

The Neila is a external clitoral massager that was designed by, Dr. Laura Berman.  Neila, is a part of the Intimate Basics Collection from CalExotics. I received Neila free of charge from CalExotics as a part of their Sexpert program. Read on to learn more.......







Overview/Design

Neila is a silicone 10 function dual exciter massager according to the packaging. I see her as a simple clitoral vibe. Neila, is geared towards those who are female bodied but it can be used on a male bodied person if you wished to do so. Her design is to stimulate the clitoris and the labia but you could easily stimulate the shaft of the penis or the testicles with the "feelers" Neila. Being on the smaller side of the sex toy world you could easily travel with Neila as long as you take the battery out so you don't accidentally turn her on while in transit. With being only 4 inches long an about 1.25 inches in diameter its easy to hide. While it doesn't have any realistic properties to it she isn't 100% discreet, most people would know what it was used for if they seen it.
The "feelers" on the top are very flexible an you will be able to bend them the way you need them but they won't stay that way. You will find a round "nose" in the middle just under the "feelers" this could be used for pressing against your clitoris. Neila isn't designed to be inserted into the body but if for some reason you chose to insert her only about 2.5 inches would be able to be inserted, please remember no flared base means she is NOT anal safe. You can tickle and tease the perineum with her if you wanted but don't insert her anally. Since Neila is a simple easy to use clitoral vibe she is non intimidating and can be used by beginners and advanced users alike. She comes in only one color which is a lavender color.


Material
Neila's main material is silicone but she also has ABS plastic parts as well. Silicone is known as a nonporous, hypoallergenic, phathalates free and latex free material. So what does all this mean? It means that you shouldn't have any reactions to the materials, not chemicals will be released into your body and it won't suck up an hold in your bodily fluids. Since silicone is nonporous you don't have to worry about the material holding in bodily fluids and harboring horrible bacteria that can ruin your toy or cause you an infection. I don't know about you but personally myself I do NOT want an infection that could have been prevented. Silicone can be sterilized* for partner share, sharing between orifices or just to make sure you keeping yourself free of infections all around. If you use Neila an you later find out you have an infection an you did when you used her don't fret you can save her an you can read how in the cleaning section below. For the most part silicone is known to have give to it an that is true here for the most part. Some of the vibe feels as if it is a plastic shell underneath with silicone skin overlay which is fine and still great. Sometimes silicone will have a draggy feel to it when it is ran along the skin, I found this semi true with Neila but a little bit of lubricant can help that issue. She isn't fully solid with no give or movement, her "feelers"  are a little squishy and move around with ease and the "nose" has the same feel almost with an exception of its more on the firmer side but still has give.

ABS plastic was the other material I mention it too has a lot of the properties silicone has such as being nonporous, phathalates free, latex free and hypoallergenic. However ABS plastic can't be fully sterilized like silicone can. You can wipe it down with alcohol an kill germs that way. Plastic as well as know is hard an has no give to it. The only parts on the outside that are plastic are silver which is a ring around the top of the battery cap and a small frame around the controls.





Controls & Functions

The controls and functions for Neila are pretty simple, there are only 2 buttons you have to worry about. The power on/off button and the pattern button. You will find the on/off button at the bottom with the pattern button on top. The controls are easy to push without issue and I believe they are easy to reach while in use. Powered by 1AA battery she has some power behind her but not like I am use to having, her vibrations are very buzzy feeling. I prefer deep rumbly vibrations personally. 
To power on Neila you will push the power button once and to turn her off you would simply push the button again, if you get interrupted you will be able turn it off fast. Note though that there is no type of memory on the vibe that will remember your setting if you have to turn it off, you will have to cycle back through all the patterns to get to the one you were using. I hate when I have to scroll back through patterns so that is a downfall for me personally some could careless if there is a memory option. 
Scrolling through the patterns is just as simple are powering Neila on/off, you just simply hit the button on the bottom til you get to the pattern you like. I will describe them below the best way I can. 
1.)Steady Low Vibration
2.)Steady Medium Vibration 
3.)Steady High Vibration
4.)Fast Pulsation
5.)Fast Pulsation 
6.)Medium Pulsation 
An honestly that is about all I can make out before my hand goes numb and they all start feeling the SAME way. The controls light up an they are light purple, when in pulsation mode the lights flicker. That might be an issue with some. 
I don't find Neila to be all that loud but she isn't whisper quiet, I can hear it over my fans. I doubt you can hear it through a closed door but I would recommend a T.V. or radio be on just in case. 
According to the packaging and the website Neila is waterproof, meaning you should be able to take her in the bath or shower without any issue. I don't take my toys in the shower since I am not big in to water playing. It comes in great handy for those like myself who don't like taking toys in the shower but wash them off in the sink. Make sure before submerging in water though that the clear O-Ring is in place an your battery cap is on tightly. If the O-Ring isn't in place an the cap isn't on tight water can seep in causing damage to your Neila



Packaging

The packaging that Neila comes in is a simple cardboard box. In no way is the box discreet There is a photo of  Neila on the front of the box an it states that it is a 10-function massager. On one side it explains what she is used for an a few of the features on the other is a little bit about Dr. Laura Berman. The back of the box just gives some of the special features such as 10-functions, waterproof, body safe silicone and more; this information is displayed in 4 different languages.
I don't really find the box great for gifting or storage. If gifting make sure you do it when people aren't around to avoid making the receiver uncomfortable unless it is okay with that person. For storage purposes, the box will rip or fall apart after being open and closed a lot. I also found that the cardboard isn't all that sturdy so the box can get crushed easily as well. 


Caring/Storage

Caring for Neila is pretty simple since its body safe silicone and waterproof there are many ways you can clean her. For regular cleaning you can use an antibacterial toy cleaner, toy wipes, baby wipe or hot water with an antibacterial soap these particular ways will NOT sterilize her for sharing. If you want to sterilize Neila you can wipe her down with a 10% bleach solution making sure you rinse her thoroughly after, this is the ONLY way you can sterilize her for sharing. Since there are motors inside do NOT boil or place Neila in the dishwasher as the extreme temperatures can damage her motors. 

When storing Neila you can use the box she came in but it won't last long. I would recommend a toy pouch or using a Ziploc bag if you want to keep it separate from touching other toys. Some materials can react with others which is why I recommend keeping toys separate from touching each other. 

If you need a lubricant water based is the best to use with silicone to avoid damage to your toy. If you like using silicone or hybrid lubes do a spot test to make sure there won't be a reaction. 


Experience

I will have to say that Neila left me wanting MORE in fact she didn't even get the motor warmed up so to speak. I did my nightly routine got a shower and went to test out toys the only toy I tested tonight was Neila. I prepped her sprayed her down with toy cleaner to clean her up before use as I do all my toys. I laid back an went to playing or well attempting to. I tried several different ways of stimulating my clitoris, I tried bending the antennas where they were on the outside of my labia while trying to nestle the "nose" of the vibe to my clit that didn't work. I tried spreading my labia an using the antennas on my clit, that didn't work either. My vagina is "plump" or fat. or whatever you want to call it. You literally have to search for my clit if you didn't know exactly where it was. Neila was a HUGE fail, I think the antennas would have worked the second way I tried if she had more power to her. On a scale of 1-5 I would say that she was around a 1 maybe a 2 on the highest setting but that is being generous. So with a power level of 2/5 it just isn't going to work for me no matter what I do; from the design of the stimulator down to the low vibration it just isn't going to work.

Pros-
Silicone
Small 

Cons-
Weak Vibrations
Design just can't be worked with
Buzzy Vibrations

In the end I was left not aroused and looking for another toy to do the job!! I reached for a different toy that I KNEW could get me to my O an went on with my night. 

If you are a beginner, don't have a fat/plump vagina and you prefer weaker vibrations this might work for you. 

Thank you to CalExotics for providing me with Neila free of charge as a part of their Sexpert program.

  1. That sucks that it left you wanting more. This would be strange to try anyways. They always have some weird toys on CalExotics but always fun to test them to see if they work or not.
