The LELO Tiani is a couple’s vibe with a remote. It is both rechargeable and takes batteries. The batteries are for the remote, and the Tiani itself recharges. This toy is really innovative and cutting edge, but the technology isn’t quite there for flawless technology. I found the remote reception is a bit sketchy, especially during sex. I do not expect flawless technology. This toy was a lot of fun, as long as you don’t expect perfection.
Dimensions: Toy: 3.25″ insertable x 3.25″ clitoral arm 1″ width on the clitoral arm. Remote: 2.5″ across
Materials: Silicone and Plastic
Features: Waterproof, Rechargeable, Works up to 39 feet away (sometimes), Easy to Clean, 8 Fun Modes, Slim insertable arm makes sex comfortable, Whisper quiet motor.
The remote has three buttons, (-) (0) (+) and the Tiani itself has one. To turn it on you have to press the button on the Tiani and then press the (+) on the remote. Both the remote and the Tiani have a blinking light when they are activated. The Tiani has 8 fun modes. I recommend mode 3-8 for solo play or during sex. Modes 1 & 2 are so much fun for discreet play under clothes and while having your partner wield the remote. I have had the remote work across the room at a club and then had trouble with it only a few feet away. It works best on a full charge and with no “bodies” in the way. This toy is so much fun for discreet play. The design and volume will not be detected under clothes. The remote is very discreet as well, unless you know this toy you won’t recognize it as a sex toy remote.
- MODE 1: The Tiani starts in this mode once it is turned on. Hold the controller flat, then you can tilt the remote to increase or or decrease the level of vibration of the toy.
- MODE 2: Press the (0) button. This is the shake mode. The faster you shake the remote the more intense the vibrations will get. If you don’t move the controller, the toy does not vibrate.
- MODE 3: Press the (0) button twice. Then (+) will increase the vibrations, (-) will decrease the vibrations. The (0) button will now cycle through the patterns, and eventually back to MODE 1.
- MODE 4: Long Vibrations with a short pause
- MODE 5: Faster vibrations with a shorter pause
- MODE 6: Building Vibrations Low to High, with no pause.
- MODE 7: Cycling vibrations low to high, much slower
- MODE 8: Random Pattern
Modes 3-8 can be increased or decreased to your liking. After syncing once you can turn the remote to save the battery, the Tiani will “stand-by” for up to 45 mins. So I got this toy and charged it for about 2 hours before I played with it. Then I inserted the 2 AAA batteries into the remote. The Tiani gets 1 hour of play time and the remote gets 10 hours of playtime on a full charge. The gold colored side of the remote screws off with a special key for changing the batteries. The Tiani unscrews near the gold plastic band to reveal the charging port. I recommend playing around with it for a while to get a feel for how it functions before actually “playing” with it. There is a bit of a learning curve in getting the Tiani to do what you want.
Since this is a couples vibe, I pitted this against the original couple’s vibe…the We-Vibe 3. It is now remote controlled as well. It is very similar and very different. I made a short video showing the differences.
Getting back to the LELO Tiani. It is covered in matte silicone and, since it waterproof, it is easy to care for. Use a water-based lubricant only on this toy. LELO is really nice and includes a sample of their water-based lubricant in their packaging. The packaging is very deluxe and what I would expect from LELO. It comes with the 2 AAA batteries for the remote, an insignia broach, an instruction booklet, the 1 year warranty, and a silk pouch. The box can be used for discreet storage or you can use the pouch. The LELO Tiani is a very light toy. It almost feels hollow, the total weight is 1.1oz. That is so light you barely know it is there, until of course you turn it on. The pouch makes this toy easy to travel with. The strength of vroom on the Tiani is about a 3.5 out of 5.
Despite the spotty remote, I think this toy is genius! The Tianis small insertion arm and rounded clitoral arm made this toy for me perfectly. It is is not as strong as the We-Vibe 3, but it doesn’t slide around as much during sex either. During sex I usually just find a mode and forget about the remote anyways. When I wore it out I found it to be more comfortable to wear under clothes than the We-Vibe 3. I liked this vibe a lot. If you were ever curious about SenseMotion technology, the LELO Tiani is a great toy to start with.
