It's a really great tool for finding your own g-spot, and the silicone is firm enough to provide a fair amount of pressure. If you can't afford the Gigi, it's not a bad option. I found that it transmitted vibrations from other toys pretty well, but I liked it best just for pressure and rubbing.
Not everything needs to vibrate, and too much dependence on vibration can't be good. Who knows, maybe someday you'll lose a few pounds, slink out of your parents' basement, and go make friends. These friends, should one of them prove attractive and trustworthy enough to share naked fun, are unlikely to vibrate.
Anyway, back to the the Ella. It comes in black or white, with a satin separator bag, and it's got an understated class to it. Since it doesn't resemble disembodied genitalia, it would not be immediately recognized as a sex toy if found. You'd still die of embarrassment, of course, but a quick lie about darning socks or something would enable your retreat.
It's quite impressive how this deceptively simple toy can bring so much pleasure. It's perfectly designed for its job, and since it doesn't vibrate, it encourages the user to explore in less of a high tech way. To use a vaguely creepy analogy, it's like putting down the video games for a while to play with something old-fashioned like Legos. Suddenly the creative portions of your brain are back in the game.
Obviously it passes any noise tests one could imagine. It can be boiled for sterilization purposes, or just cleaned with toy cleaner, and it's of course waterproof since it doesn't have any electrical parts.
If you already own both the Gigi and a good dildo that you like, you might find this toy redundant, but personally I think it's well worth having.
