[There is an updated Siri now and I liiike it — read my review of the LELO Siri 2.]

LELO Siri rechargeable clitoral vibratorSiri is a new release from LELO made specifically for clitoral stimulation. Siri is futuristic and adorable, small and perfect for grasping. I am, admittedly, swayed a little by aesthetic beauty, but power is always the dealbreaker. I was hoping Siri would work well for me, but coming on the heels of my latest clitoral vibe — the Fun Factory Spring — I wasn’t too optimistic. The Spring gets me off, but it doesn’t thrill me. Siri, luckily, comes closer to thrilling me.

Siri is shaped like an elongated egg — 4″ long and 1 3/4″ wide at its widest — and it’s quite cute. I snagged the bright red version, but it also comes in pink and purple (why it doesn’t come in lime green, orange, or turquoise is a mystery of the world). The red part is covered in silky 100% silicone, while the white part is plastic. The entire toy is rigid and has no flex, including the silicone portion.

As far as features are concerned, the Siri has almost all its bases covered. It has six vibration modes and about five vibration intensities. It charges in 2 hours, then claims to run for 4 hours; I’ve used it 5-6 times and the battery has not died yet — or even alerted me. Awesomely, if the battery is running low, the LED will glow red. Siri can be locked, and it is meant to hold a charge for up to 90 days. It comes with a one-year warranty and 10-year quality guarantee (if your toy goes kaput within 10 years, send it to LELO and they will give you 50% off your next purchase). Oh, and a white satin storage pouch.

The elongated egg shape is pretty damn ergonomic. I had fears about pressing buttons accidentally, but that hasn’t happened once — despite my fingers resting precariously on that area when I use the toy. LELO made a good move with the recessed buttons that require a slightly longer press to respond. Best of all, I can manipulate the controls without looking.

What I really like about Siri, though, is that the vibrations are on the surface, not buried beneath a layer of squishy silicone. I don’t have to overexert myself pressing Siri into my clit — it makes contact on its own without much trouble. And, miraculously, it feels neither too small nor too big. I thought it might feel too wide, but it nestles effortlessly between my labia, and I never have to think twice about positioning.

And the vibrations are quite pleasurable! Sure, I usually start on level two or three, and I almost always turn Siri to the highest level when I come, but I’m alright with that. It could be stronger, but since I rarely wish I could turn it up further, it’s not worth bellyaching about. The vibration patterns are nothing special, except for the last one, which is unique and unpredictable — but still not fast enough for me to truly love it.

I did a test against Lily and Nea (LELO’s older clit vibes) at a local shop, and Siri out-performs them for sure. Siri is stronger, doesn’t have that obnoxious high-pitched whine to it, and is bigger — which I see as a plus, since Nea and Lily are so freaking tiny and potentially slippery. Siri is about as powerful as Mia 2, but it’s nowhere near as strong as Mona 2 or the We-Vibe Touch and Tango.

One thing that might be worth bellyaching about, though, is that Siri is not waterproof. Not in the least. I’m not dying to take this in the bath or anything, but for $100, it’s something that makes me say “really, LELO?” In fact, the charging port on Siri doesn’t even have a cover at all. And the manual states ominously, “Avoid submerging and getting water into the DC socket or around the buttons.” So basically, don’t get water on the plastic parts. Yeah… this is problematic when lube inevitably migrates up onto the plastic. Wipes and/or toy cleaner are best for this one, not running water.

But overall, I’m pleased with Siri. Its greatest triumph is its shape, which feels natural both in the hand and against the clit. Is it the clit vibe to end all clit vibes? Not quite — it would need to be waterproof and have more power. But it’s really a nice little toy nonetheless. Also, if you happen to be making a kinky Easter basket for someone? Tuck Siri in among the eggs. For the win.

Get the LELO Siri at one of my fave shops:
SheVibe, Babeland, Early to BedCome As You Are (Canada), or Lovehoney (international).

  • I was pleasantly surprised when I bought the Siri. I’ve been very happy with it in a way I haven’t been happy with a toy in a while.

  • FD

    The Siri is close to the top of my wishlist. I too wish it were waterproof, and that it were available in different colors. Grey maybe? But I’m happy to see that you’re overall pleased with Siri. Now I want one more… 😉

    It’s not even Halloween yet fool!

    I didn’t even think about using lube with the Siri and how it would act with not being waterproof. That’s something to keep in mind.

    Great review. I was looking to buy this then stumbled your review for bCurious too. and now I can’t decide which one I want to buy.. It seems that Siri is very strong but I like the pinpoint on bCurious.. which would you recommend buying? Thanks!

  • @Lauren: I dug out my Bcurious and charged it just for you! Turns out, the vibration strength is similar, but Siri’s is more rumbly, whereas the Bcurious’ is more buzzy. Pros of Siri would be: many vibration strength settings, and some interesting patterns. Pros of Bcurious would be: waterproof, and the shape if you want pinpoint. Both toys are ergonomic. Siri is silicone, so it has a bit more drag than the silky plastic of the Bcurious. Since you mentioned pinpoint, I would learn toward Bcurious unless you think that buzzy vibrations might not be what you want.

  • Lauren

    @Epiphora: Thank you!! Your descriptions are very helpful as always! 🙂

  • Had been wondering about this product! thanks for the review!

  • Kyra

    Thanks for the great review, I was pondering for a few weeks if I should buy the Siri or not because I was afraid that the vibrations would be similar to the Lelo Nea, thanks for clarifiying that. I’ve been using the Fun Factory Layaspot which is pretty good but I need a new toy. 😀

  • Selective Sensualist

    Yeah, I thought that was odd that the Siri does not even have a cover for the charging port like other LELO vibes do. Why would they leave that out? I really like the vibrations though . . .

  • sophie2229

    I’m siriously considering buying this.

  • Bri

    I have the Nea and was sooo disappointed with it’s lack of power. I’m glad Siri out performs, but I’m still hesitant to spend the money after my experience with the Nea.

  • Liz

    So cute; I like the shape better than that of the Nea or Lily. I agree, though – wish it came in more interesting colors!

    I like multipurpose toys (hence why I just bought the Lelo Liv) or I’d have a hard time saying no to this little one. Absolutely adorable.

  • I don’t care if it can make me orgasm with one touch: If I can’t clean it without fear of ruining a toy that costs that much, I don’t want it. They make covers for the charging port and give them out for free until they change the design.

  • Wilhelmina

    going to review this too and am looking forward to doing some sort of video comparison with the lily. i like the lily but… god, it is tiny. all i need to hold it is my index finger and thumb, i feel when i use my entire hand, it gets lost.

    To be honest, I was disappointed by the siri. I find it to be too wide for what I want in a clit vibe, and even when i turn it on it’s side, and try to use the slight pointed surface of it’s edge, it still doesn’t do it for me. It’s a warm-up toy at best. It’s too wide to get me to climax, and is not meant for those who enjoy pin-point stimulation like myself.

  • @Caspar: I can see how Siri’s wideness could be a problem. However, I love pinpoint stimulation too, but I still love the Siri.

  • Michael

    Hey Epiphora, what do you think of the Fun Factory Layaspot in comparison to the Siri?

  • I don’t have the Layaspot, sorry! Let me see if I can phone a friend on this one…

  • Neurogasm

    I’ve got both, and the Layaspot is much weaker, in my experience. It’s probably because of the fact that it runs on two AAA batteries, in comparison to the Siri’s rechargeable battery. That, and it’s made of elastomer, and I prefer silicone. I find the Siri’s controls easier to use, too. Basically, if you’re deciding which to get, I’d go for the Siri.

  • Adriana

    The Siri is stronger, but the Layaspot is deeper, which generally evens out the playing field for me. Siri’s controls are easier to use but the downside is that I accidentally turn it off all the time during use because that’s EXACTLY where I push my fingers for pressure. This isn’t a problem with the Layaspot and the sharper angle “hooks” around my mons better. I can press in just the tip, whereas I’m pushing the entire Siri into my mons for pressure. I can sometimes use the Layaspot to orgasm without turning it on at all (!), but my needs are those of the few. If you want power over depth and pressure. Siri is awesome, but the Layaspot is my go-to toy for a reason.

  • Michael

    Thank you all so much for your responses! I’m glad to hear two balanced, varied opinions. I appreciate it!

  • Glumbumble

    I decided against the Siri after reading some reviews that said it didn’t even last 20 minutes. Sometimes I take a while so I need the toy to at least last an hour min. I ended up getting the Lily, which, as you said, is tiny tiny tiny (and high pitched whiny). But the size comes in handy during oral sex and intercourse if I can position it right where it’ll stay. And at the highest strength it lasts for 60+ minutes (I did a test immediately after charging, because it died on us after 10 minutes or so, so I’m thinking it doesn’t hold a charge long). Lily is also not waterproof. And for $100, that seems ridiculous for any toy. That’s one thing I love about the Mona 2, even if the covering comes off too easily, at least it’s waterproof and it’s so easy to wash that way.

  • Monkey

    I was poking around on LELO’s site and the call the Siri “ultra powerful” which intrigues me, especially in a rechargeable, but I was wondering how that claim stacked up against the current range of rechargeable clit vibes. I am not expecting to find something to match the Wahl, but I am looking for something with lots of oomph and on the rumbly side

    Thanks for the review! Super helpful!
