Lelo Tara is built for times you want to go solo, and the for the times when you want to share. It is a couples’ toy like the Lelo Noa, but takes a different approach to the fun times. Lelo may continue to insist that the Tara is a couples toy, and it certainly does have benefits when used together, the Lelo Tara is no featherweight as a solo toy either. In fact, it works so well as a solo toy, you could be forgiven for not bothering to use it for couples’ action. Let’s take a closer and detailed look with this Lelo Tara review.
Lelo Tara: What Does The First Impression Say?
Lelo Tara comes in the same beautifully discreet packaging as other stars on the Lelo Insignia line of premium products. A beautifully designed outer box holds the classy storage box, and taking off the lid gives you a glimpse of the treasures it holds. The box contains:
- Lelo Tara vibrating massager
- A satin storage pouch
- A sachet of Lelo personal massager (water based lubricant)
- Warranty card (1 year guarantee, 10 year quality warranty)
- Instruction manual
- USB charging cable
The lack of a wall adapter for the USB cable has to be a big gripe here. Sure its nice that the Lelo Tara can be charged through a USB port, but it could have been so much more easier if there was a wall adapter. Yes, everyone’s got plenty of them floating around, but then all of us also have the gadgets that go into the wall adapters. Additional trouble comes with the cord being just about six-inches, so there are only a limited options to choose. Well, we could always connect it to a laptop or computer, but that isn’t the most elegant solution.
Lelo Tara is available in three different colors, viz. Midnight Blue, Black, and Deep Rose. Each of the Tara vibrators looks great, and the seamless silicone body makes quite an impression. Following its siblings in the Insignia line, the Lelo Tara too has a central metallic accent made out of ABS plastic in a golden color.
Lelo Tara Build And Dimensions
It’s impossible to not be enthused by the unique shape and form of the Lelo Tara. This clitoral and G-spot vibrator hits two spots with one device. The U-shaped toy has a wand for vaginal insertion and a disc for clitoral stimulation. ABS plastic as well as the silicone used on the Lelo Tara are non-porous, hypoallergenic, phthalate-free, and completely body safe.
Silicone’s beautiful, seamless and velvety smooth texture gives this vibrator an amazing feeling on touch, while the metal-accented plastic adds to its premium look. Keep in mind that the U-shaped vibrator is fixed in its shape. So if the wand and the disc agree with your body type, be prepared to have remarkable fun times. If they don’t… well, tough luck. It shouldn’t generally be a problem, but every body is unique, and there might very well be some who won’t be a part of this one-size-fits-all approach.
The wand has an insertable length of 3.5-inches, which puts it right in line with some Lelo G-spot massagers like the Lelo Liv 2. At its thickest, the wand is 0.9 inches in diameter, while the disc measures 2.5 inches in diameter. One benefit of having the disc go wide is that it increases the chances of the disc reaching, and stimulating the clitoris.
Lelo Tara Vibrator: The Big Test
Once you turn on the Tara couples vibrator, the wand starts rotating in circular motions, stimulating the G-spot as well as the vaginal entrance. It won’t hit the G-spot perfectly, but it will give it a good touch and massage. At the same time, you have the disc vibrating against the clitoris. This powerful stimulation of both erogenous zones means that the build up to an orgasm is strong, and a satisfying orgasm can be expected.
The rotating wand is also where the couples part comes in. As the penis is inserted, the wand continues to stroke the penis with its circular motions. Apparently, this brings around greater stimulation and a stronger orgasm for the man as well. But then again there’s a chance that the dude won’t quite love the sensation, so it’s a good thing you can go solo without worrying. If he does like it, things get so much more better!
Lelo Tara has a single button on the disc side that you can use to control and manage through various cycles and intensity settings. The button is tiny and can be easily missed. It becomes more of a problem when you’re having sex and have to fumble around to find the button. Apart from that little annoyance, the Lelo Tara works beautifully as a vibrator and provides breathtaking stimulation.
Using a lube makes things easier and better for the insertion of the wand, and plays much better if the penis is to be inserted too. Remember to use a water based lubricant; never use a silicone lubricant with a silicon dildo/vibrator.

Lelo Tara Features
Lelo Tara Intensity And Patterns
Pressing the simple, textured button at Lelo Tara’s side for a few seconds brings the vibrator to live. Once it’s turned on, you can cycle through six different cycles of pre-programmed speeds and patterns. These are:
- Constant vibration
- Pulse vibration
- Faster pulse
- Escalating vibration
- Various vibration pattern
Charging The Lelo Tara
Lelo Tara includes a Li-ion battery that can be charged by plugging the side of the Lelo Vibrator into the power cord. The charging port is open and without any hindrance, so check if there are any water, lube, body fluid residues. Since the Tara vibrator is waterproof, the charger probably is internally sealed, keeping water from damaging the vibrator.
The battery takes about 2 hours to charge, though the charging time may be longer if the device is being charged for the first time. On a full charge, the vibrator can give you up to two hours of playtime, and has a standby time of 90 days.
Once you start charging, an orange light shows up near the control button. This light will continue to blink as long as the vibrator is charging, and stay steady once the charging is done.
Lelo Tara Is Waterproof
Tara vibrator is waterproof up to a depth of 1 meters in water. While the device probably won’t hold up in the shower without continuous manual intervention due to its shape, it will hold very well in the bathtub. So if that’s your thing, enjoy your pick!
Lelo Tara Review — Pros And Cons
- Easy and comfortable to use
- Vaginal (g-spot) and clitoral stimulator
- Matte silicone feels great against the body
- Provides a great sensation
- Can be used together by couples, or as a solo sex toy
- The control button can be fairly difficult to reach and manage
- Fixed U-shape, so it may not confirm to every body type
Fixing Lelo Tara’s Button Problem — Lelo Ida
You could skip groping for the tiny button to control the Lelo Tara, and get a better control over the vibrator. A remote control seems very useful at such moments, and that’s where the Lelo Ida comes in. This one’s the same as the Lelo Tara, with one small exception: it comes with a remote for the vibrator. The Lelo Ida comes with a SenseMotion remote control that you can use to control various intensity and pattern settings on the dildo.
Lelo Tara has six different speeds and patterns that you can enjoy. The only problem is that they have to be accessed through the small button that can easily be missed. Patterns and intensity options are the same for Lelo Ida, though this one has the SenseMotion remote for easier control. Besides, your partner may handle the remote and control the Ida, making the couples aspect of this toy deeper. Keep in mind, the Lelo Tara by itself is not compatible with the remote. It’s the slightly more expensive Lelo Ida that does the job.
Lelo Tara Review — The Bottom Line
There aren’t much of faults with the Lelo Tara. You could have trouble with the control button, in which case look for the slightly more expensive Lelo Ida. The SenseMotion remote control works beautifully, and is compatible with several adult toys, not just the Ida. However, there’s a good chance you’ll manage to handle the button on the Lelo Tara easily as more time passes. It is an excellent vaginal and clitoral stimulator, and very likely is worth the investment you will put into it.
