Tell me about yourself?

I was the one who came up with the idea to manufacture a plug-in wand massager in the UK about four years ago.  My name is William Garland and I had no previous experience in the sex toy industry. Waking up by the sea is my favourite thing.

What are your favourite quote’s that inspire you?

My Father once said to me

“Use what you have got”

And that works out well in most circumstances.

What are your favourite memories and moments from working in Doxy?

There are lots, but a highlight was when I exhibited at our first trade show (the 2013 ETO Show in the UK) and started meeting others in the industry and took orders from retailers.

Doxy wand massagers are made to be some of the most powerful vibrators available. What inspired in the creation of your adult lifestyle company?

My girlfriend’s Hitachi Magic Wand had worn out and she wanted a new one, but they were not easy to get hold of because they were only sold legally in the US.  So, I thought I would try making a version for the UK and European market.

How long did it take you to create the Doxy?

It was took a lot longer and was a lot harder than I thought it would be.  I found a partner who had a scaffold factory here in Cornwall and we now make the Doxy products in this factory from scratch.  We still have to import the motor and plug but everything else we either make ourselves or source locally.  We are the only company that manufactures a vibrating sex toy in the UK and there is a good reason for that – it easier and cheaper to get sex toys made in China.

Doxy’s products are made to be strong and reliable. What inspired the choice of Polished Aluminium/Titantium Alloy for the Doxy Die Cast range?

Because we already cast scaffold parts at the factory it was easy for us to do (“use what you have got”).

What do you love most about your brand/s compared to other companies?

There are lots of great sex toy brands.  But I do love the fact that we make the products ourselves in the UK.

Your company manufacturers its product’s in Cornwall in the United Kingdom. What are the benefits of your manufacturing location?

The main benefit from manufacturing in Cornwall is that we get to live in Cornwall, which is the most beautiful part of the UK.  And because we are literally screwing the products together ourselves, it means we are aware of any quality issues.  And when we do have a problem – it is easier to correct.

It is said that Doxy Massagers can reach up to 9,000 revolutions per minute. How would you describe the power of the Doxy Massagers?

They are ridiculously powerful – however, they are controllable and should be used on the lower speeds at first.

The Doxy Massagers are the only wand massager available with a controlled pulse setting. This means you can change the strength of the pulsations whilst changing the speed. How do you best describe what the pulse feels like?

I think there must be other wands with pulse settings.  Some people love the Doxy’s escalating pulse others prefer the simple constant vibration.  You really need to experiment and discover your preferences.

What areas of the body do you recommend using the Doxy Massager on?

The wand massager was originally developed as a back massager and is now known as a clitoral massager.   I would recommend trying the Doxy on the perineum area, and when used as a couples toy the power and depth of the vibration really comes into its own when both partners can feel the sensations together.

Do you have any secret tips and trick to get the most out of the Doxy Massager?

My tip would be to use your Doxy on the base of any dildo for powerful internal vibrations.   And a trick if ever need to clear your sinuses… just use your Doxy on the tip of your nose for a few seconds!

What are your best sellers?

The black Doxy Massager is our best seller.

Are there any health conditions that the Doxy Massager can help?

We hear anecdotes from customer using their Doxy to ease various aches and pains, but we don’t make any health claims other than very effective stress relief!

Is there anything you would like to add?

If anyone reading this is thinking of starting a sex toy company – I would recommend it.

This Island Beauty Lyla Is Version 2 From Lelo!

From The Island

The definition of Lyla is a feminine name that means ‘Island Girl’, ‘Island Beauty’ and ‘From The Island’.  There are many derivatives of this name but it is the one chosen by the Lelo Company make the Lyla 2 a part of its luxury sex toy Insignia range and is an upgraded version of the Lelo Lyla. The Lelo Lyla 2 was released as there were some issues with the original Lyla that have been addressed and rectified by the manufacturer. Lelo Sex Toys are the premium range of sex toys in the world, multi awards for design and operation and they constantly strive for newer and better products.

The problems often experienced with the original were in the original the remote was not able to be switched off whilst the bullet was switched on which made it difficult for those wanting to use this discretely in public whilst the Lyla 2 remote has the option to vibrate or not. Second wireless operation was very limited to roughly about 3 meters and often would not work through clothing or any type of barrier. Both these have been addressed successfully.

So when my Lelo Lyla 2 arrived courtesy of adultsmart.com.au for me to review I was already happy. I opened the discrete package and found it came in a very nice box that had a cover with the picture of the Lyla 2 vibrator on it. Though if you are giving this as a present to someone make sure it is not with the family at the Christmas table as it is obvious what is inside due to the pictures and the company name. In saying that like all Lelo artwork it is done tastefully and with vavoom.

When I opened the box I found the Lyla 2 bullet, remote control, 2 x AAA batteries for the remote control, a charger, a small lubricant and a silk storage pouch. The Lyla has three color options purple, black and pink. I was sent the purple one which to my naked eye looked more like a dark rose. Also in the box were a set of instructions. If you have not owned the original Lyla it is a good idea to have a thorough read of them as there are some unique setting and features. Lelo does not hold back with providing a quality sex toy.

I first took the bullet out of the box which can be used either internally or externally. It is made from medical grade silicone and is soft and smooth to touch. Like all insignia toys it is a delight to look at aesthetically. The bulled is about 7.5cm long and about 2.5cm wide and has a retrieval cord. It has a bit of a curve on one end, the base is made of a chrome plastic type of material that can be removed. On the bottom of the silicone part of the bullet there is small button that can turn the device on. You turn it on by holding this button down for about 3 seconds. You can then change the 6 different functions by quickly pressing this button which allows you to use it without the remote control. To turn it off you simply hold the button down for about 3 seconds and it switches itself off.

When you charge the bullet the button lights up and will go between bright and dark. When it is fully charge the button will be a consistent bright light. It takes under 2 hours to fully charge and you will have over 3 hours of continuous use once charged. The third button in that has an infinity like sign goes through the three Sense Motion modes.

What is SenseMotion Technology? SenseMotion is trademarked by Lelo and allows you to control the intensity of the vibrator by moving the remote. If you have your remote flat it will give you the lowest vibration intensity however it will give you the strongest when vertical. It will also work by shaking it slowly for slow vibrations or shaking it quickly for intense vibration.   It really does make sex toy play a totally interactive experience.

Being silicone the Lyla 2 is easy to clean and you can do so by simply using some luke warm water with very week liquid detergent or a toy cleaner. I loved the Lyla 2 as I do love most Lelo sex toys especially the Lelo Gigi 2. If you like bullets and remote controls you will love the Lelo Lyla 2.
