What’s Your Favorite Sequel?Tell Us & Win a Lelo Ina 2 (Updated- 10/16)

49

by thepleasurechest

UPDATE: Congratulations to Doug in Illinois, who was randomly selected to win the Lelo Ina 2. Thanks to everyone who submitted sequel suggestions. Stay tuned to this space for a special sequel to this contest! 

The Lelo Ina is one of the most beautifully designed dual stimulation vibes we’ve ever seen. She’s got two powerful motors: one for the shaft and one for the clitoral tickler with 8 different vibration modes to explore.

Ina’s shape is safe for anal penetration, making her an equal opportunity pleaser of G-Spots and P-Spots. Her playful parts are made of 100% soft, body-safe silicone. Like all of Lelo’s pleasure objects, she’s fully rechargeable and carries a one year warranty.

So, how do you improve upon perfection? By doubling the power. And making Ina safe for the bathtub.

That’s right, the new Ina 2 is 100% stronger than her predecessor. And she’s totally waterproof.

How to Win an Ina 2

We’re giving away an Ina 2 to one lucky reader of this blog. Simply post a comment in the thread below telling us about your favorite sequel.  Think of something that’s even better than the original version. Do you like Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo? Or perhaps Fifty Shades Darker? It can be a movie, a book or anything with a part two.

On Tuesday, October 16th, we’ll pick one entry at random to win the Ina 2. Good luck!
