When it comes to a sex toy, the last thing most people think of is the environment. However, the new Leaf Spirit has won not only Best New Product Range from the ETO Awards in the United Kingdom, but also Best Environmental Concept from Australia’s AdultEx Awards. In 2015, Leaf won Best Eco-Friendly Sex Toy in Los Angeles.
The sturdy and functional packaging holds up as a storage case and is made of thick cardboard in a design that reseals itself. Unlike the plastic bubble packaging that most toys come in, the packaging here is functional and attractive. It’s earthy looking, and frankly, tasteful enough not to have to be hidden away in a drawer.
But let’s face it: Most people don’t buy a sex toy because of the packaging. The Leaf Spirit is small but powerful – the longer you hold down the power button, the more intense the vibrations get. Even the lower speeds are quite intense, although not overwhelming, while the higher ones are very fast. The design is almost seamless in comfortable silicone, making it waterproof. It’s rechargeable via USB, adding to its environmentally friendly buzz (pun only slightly intended).
The pointed tip makes for a strong sensation where it counts, while the generally curved shape also makes for some fun possibilities. If positioned properly, it can cover almost the entire length of the vagina, with the pointed part starting at the clit. In that way, it’s great for both solo and partner play. In fact, you can wear panties over it or easily hold it in place with your legs.
Small enough to take travelling discreetly, the Leaf Spirit holds its charge for about 2 hours. If you hit the power button again it will turn off, and there is also a lock feature to prevent the device from accidentally getting turned on. In addition to the really cool packaging I mentioned before, it comes in a really nice cloth bag that fits both the toy and the charging cord and looks like a small burlap sack.
As far as how it works and feels, I don’t really have any complaints about the Leaf Spirit. It works really well, especially if you like intense vibrating sensations. Though it’s made in China, it was designed in Canada, is phthalate-free, and fully submersible in water. It’s also very easy to clean.
If you prefer more subtle vibrations, then the Leaf Spirit may be too intense. Also, some gurls may find charging via USB inconvenient, although you can readily get USB wall chargers these days. Otherwise, this is really great for people on the go, who like intense pleasure, and those who care about the impact of their toys on the environment.
The Leaf Spirit is available at the Traveling Tickle Trunk for $112.
