Sex Toy Review: California Exotic Novelties Lia Pleaser 1



Before I used the Lia ® Pleasers™ Pleaser 1, I was intrigued by the vibration options.  It offers 10 different settings/pulses.  It’s also waterproof and made from silicone, which are two big pluses in my book.

When I first turned on the toy it was loud. Really loud. The noise is a definite drawback of the Lia Pleaser 1.

I am the type of person who prefers vibration on my clitoris and outer labia.  Rarely do I enjoy insertable vibration.  Although many vibrating dildos are intended to be used internally, I usually find more success rubbing them on my clitoris.  When I tried to stimulate my clit with the Lia 1, it didn’t cut it at all.  The vibration is rather weak even on higher settings.  Lia 1 does offer some interesting vibration patterns I likely would have enjoyed had they been a bit stronger.

After inserting the toy, the vibrations were annoying rather than pleasurable so I turned the toy off completely.  This is when a bit of magic happened.  After a few thrusts things started feeling really good.  I discovered the curve at the end of the Lia Pleaser 1 hits the G-spot  perfectly!  When it wasn’t turned on, I was easily able to have a G-spot orgasm with this toy (New tag line? “Turn it off to turn you ON!” I’ll work on that . . . ).

I’ve used the Lia Pleaser 1 repeatedly over a 3 week period both by myself and with partners to make sure I explored it fully.  My conclusion is, the Lia Pleaser 1 is an awful vibrator but a wonderful dildo.  I wish it didn’t have the ability to vibrate at all because I find I don’t use that option.  For me, the Lia Pleaser 1 is best used while inserted.  I then either couple it with a second toy for clitoral stimulation or with a partner who is performing cunilingus.

Another selling point is it’s very inexpensive– you won’t feel like you’re getting ripped off if you buy this toy strictly to use as a non-vibrating dildo.  It runs about $40 but I frequently see it on sale in the $29 neighborhood.

Watch the video above for more tips and tricks for the Lia Pleaser 1.  Below is a handy pros and cons list for the toy also.

Lia Pleaser 1 Pros

  • Wonderful G-spot curve
  • Smaller/size of an average penis
  • Nice variety of pulsing patterns
  • Controls are simple to operate/not located when they get inadvertently hit
  • Waterproof
  • Inexpensive
  • Made of silicone (Silicone is non-porous, hypoallergenic, non-toxic and feels wonderful!)

Lia Pleaser 1 Cons

  • Incredibly loud
  • Weak vibrations
  • Not suitable for anal (no flared base)
  • Need more than JUST this toy alone
  • Battery operated (2 AA batteries)
  • Not a go-to, every time type of toy.  It’s nice to have in your collection for variety and for penetration/G-spot stimulation. If this were my only toy, I’d be disappointed.
