About the Product

Before we get to the nitty gritty, we’d like to provide you with details about the product. The Soraya is available in three colors: cerise, deep rose and black. This beautiful toy has a very nice feel due to the matte finish of the silicone. The toy is accented along the sides with a gold colored ABS plastic. The ABS plastic is also body-safe. The diameter of the Soraya is approximately 1.4 inches with an insertable length of 4.3 inches. Charging is very easy as it comes with a charger that plugs into a small pinhole area at the base. It takes roughly 2 hours to charge and you can expect to get about 3 to 4 hours of play time on a single charge. Included with your new Soraya is a charging cord, satin storage pouch, warranty registration card and detailed instruction manual.

How it works

The Soraya is a modern-day rabbit style vibrator with dual action vibrations. Inside the Soraya lies two separate motors which allow for simultaneous stimulation of the g-spot and clitoris. One motor is located towards the tip of the vibrator’s main portion while the other is located at the clitoral stimulator. 8 vibration settings are included leaving you with a variety of different pleasures. Also, both motors are relatively quiet but still noticeable when your immediate surroundings are noise-free. As much as we’d like to tell you about each individual vibration pattern, we’d rather not as we prefer you to have fun discovering on your own. The vibrations are easily controlled at the base by a three button interface. The (+) button allows you to increase the intensity of the vibrations and the (-) button decreases them. In the middle of each of these two buttons lies a third button which allows you to change the vibration modes. All three buttons are placed near the looped handle allowing for easy control. The best part of this toy…she’s also waterproof so you can have lots of fun in the bath or shower!

As for cleaning and care, we’ve found that Soraya needs to be cleaned very thoroughly as there is a ridge between the ABS plastic and silicone. Please take plenty of time cleaning this ridge. Otherwise, bacteria could form between the two materials. 

Our Experience

Robin Says: When I first used the Soraya, I wasn’t as impressed with it as I expected. I really had high expectations but was somewhat disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, this is a wonderful toy, it just doesn’t work right for solo play with my body. Many women have various sizes and shapes to their labia. For me, my clit lies a bit deep within my labia which made it hard for Soraya’s clitoral stimulator to reach properly. Because of this issue, it was hard to simply lay back and enjoy considering I had one hand on the vibrator and the other trying to keep my labia spread open to allow for clitoral stimulation. It was a bit of a mood killer for me as it took too much concentration and did not allow me to relax. However, the main insertable part did a great job as there were no problems reaching my g-spot. The main part of the vibrator was wonderful once I found the right vibration pattern that worked best for me. After using a few times and getting more familiar with the controls, I was able to have intense orgasms. I feel this a decent toy for solo play, however, I had greater pleasure when Liam and I used it together. With that being said, I’ll let Liam tell you all about our experience while using it together (if I don’t, he’ll probably pout for being excluded from the review).

Liam Says: I was really disappointed when Robin told me that the Soraya didn’t meet her expectations. I was sure this would be the “toy of all toys.” It was at that time that I decided to take matters into my own hands. I’m a problem solver by nature, and I told Robin that I’d be happy to give her some assistance. With me at the helm of the elegant Soraya, an earth shattering orgasm was achieved each time we used it. Whether we played on our bed or massage table (aka "Love Altar), Robin was able to lay back and relax while I used the various intensities and patterns on her. With me holding Soraya, and having a different angle/approach to Robin’s lady bits, I was able to work both the main part and the clitoral stimulator together with ease. In my opinion, I prefer couples toy play over solo play as it allows the receiver to fully enjoy the toy without having to do the work themselves. Of course, this is not always possible for couples that don’t trust each other, which is not the case for us. Robin knows I’m going to take great care of her and do all I can to assist her in achieving the pleasure that she deserves.

Recommended Use

The Soraya was designed to provide simultaneous vaginal, clitoral and g-spot stimulation. Soraya is perfect for beginners to expert users. If you're looking for something strictly for her, this could be a great option. However, as previously stated by Robin, please keep in mind the shape and depth of your labia. Women with a more shallow labia where the clit is exposed, or nearly exposed, may have better results.  We also think the Soraya is a perfect toy to use during foreplay. If you like lots of girth, this may not be a great match as Soraya is very slender.  Remember, this is specifically a ‘women' only’ toy and not designed for male users.  Please do not try and use this for anal play as it was not intended for such.

Likes & Dislikes

Of course, with all toys, there always seems to be some pros and cons. We’ve listed some of ours below.

Things we like:

  • Great for couples foreplay or solo play
  • 100% Waterproof
  • 3-4 hours play on a single charge
  • Powerful dual vibrations with lots of patterns to choose from

Things we dislike:

  • Difficult to clean 
  • Not compatible with all body-types

Summary

In our opinion, the Soraya is a great toy but it lacks some versatility. For us, we really like toys that can be completely sterilized and shared between the two of us. When paying a premium price, we like to ensure we get the most we can for the money spent. This toy is made for certain body types, therefore, we would not recommend this product for women with a well-hidden clit. However, if the Soraya seems to be a good fit for you, please click here to purchase. The ISLA, which is the same shape but without the clitoral stimulator, is also available if you are looking for some great G-spot stimulation.
