Spice Up Your Bedroom Life With LELO! LELO ORA 2 Review

*The Small Things received product to facilitate this post. This post contains adult content, proceed with caution*
LADIES! Let's talk about something for a second. Our sex lives. Let's face it, it isn't a topic that many would like to discuss, however, it is my duty to bring your attention to these amazing products that will give FIREWORKS to your bedroom life. Have you heard of the brand LELO?  

LELO started in 2003 in in the front room of a Stockholm townhouse with three designers. They are now in their second decade or producing the most refined and luxurious products. What makes them stand out from anyone else? The designs! Their products don't look "average". They are different! They also won 36 major international design & industry awards.
Fun fact: 16 million LELO products have sold since 2016.
If you haven't, you are missing out! LELO carries products for him, her and sex toys for couples that are great for the bedroom. I wanted to bring your attention to a few of them. Now, I don't know about you, but when we were trying to conceive, it seemed more like a chore. I thought to myself, what can I do to spice things up? Then I came across LELO. I received a really neat product from them to feature here, and yes these photos were taken before I used the product!
 I bring you the LELO ORA 2. This product is MIND BLOWING. This product is an oral sex simulator. It comes with the product, charger, warranty card and storage pouch.
 As you can see, the size is perfect. It is small and able to be held easily. What makes this different than the average oral sex? Ladies and gents, this has 10 settings. YES. This baby does things that a tongue cannot do!
 It is also 100% waterproof. You can use this in the shower, hot tub or even when you are alone in the bath. What do I love about it? EVERYTHING. This baby is rechargeable. Gone are the days where you have to change batteries. With the ORA 2, I don't have to!
How to use

You press the + to turn on, and press again to increase intensity/vibration strength.You can press the button in the middle to cycle through the 10 simulation modes. You can use SenseTouch with this product too! This means that simulation begins on contact with skin. You just hold for 5 seconds to activate this. To reduce vibration, press the - button and you can press and hold it to turn it off. You can view their website for the video with all of the simulation HERE

Real talk

Because of all of the functions, the LELO ORA 2 allows for more of an intense orgasm in my opinion. When you hold it, it isn't heavy at all. I like the silicone feeling of it too. The noise is very little. You can't hear it with a closed door. I am very pleased with this product and I know that you will be too! The design is pretty. Can I say that a sex toy is pretty? Because it is. 
The LELO ORA 2 comes in three colors. Pink, Midnight Blue and lastly, black. You can purchase this product on their website for only $189. The shipping is discreet. So if you aren't home when this baby is delivered, don't freak about your neighbors seeing it! This product would also make a great bridal shower gift too! You also get a one year warranty when you purchase!
LELO also has a new condom product that I want to share with you. HEX condoms are the newest addition to their collection of products. Be sure to check this out. This product looks pretty neat! Visit LELO to see other products they have to offer! You can also visit LELO on their social media to stay up to date with the latest! 
Do you own LELO products? Will you give this product a chance?

The Story Of Our Story- Behind The Story Of Cars 3 #Cars3Event

*May contain Cars 3 spoilers*
Have you ever wondered how a Pixar movie came to be? How the story came along? Have you ever watched a movie and wondered, what were they thinking? (The good way, of course!) I had the chance of a lifetime on my recent press trip to Sonoma Raceway for the Cars 3 press day. We were able to meet several AMAZING people and learn about "The Story Of Our Story". This presentation was presented by: Mike Rich (Writer), Bob Peterson (Writer), Kiel Murray (Writer) and Scott Morse (Story Supervisor).

A little bit about these creative minds:

Mike Rich is a screenwriter. He has been for more than 15 years. Some of the films he has written and worked on include Finding Forester and Secretariat. Cars 3 is his first time working for Pixar and his first time working in animation!
Bob Peterson is photographed on November 19, 2014 at Pixar Animation Studios in Emeryville, Calif. (Photo by Deborah Coleman / Pixar)
Bob Peterson- Bob is a 23 year veteran at Pixar. He his a story and screenwriting veteran. Bob was a star supervisor on Monsters Inc, writer on Finding Nemo and  Co-Director and writer on UP, the voice of Doug, Roz and Mr. Ray! 
Kiel Murray is photographed on December 12, 2016 at Pixar Animation Studios in Emeryville, Calif. (Photo by Deborah Coleman / Pixar)
Kiel Murray is a writer on Cars 3. She was also one of the original writers on the first Cars movie!

Scott Morse is the story supervisor on Cars 3. He has been at Pixar for over 12 years! He worked on movies that include Ratatouille, Wall-E, Brave, Cars 2 and now Cars 3!

The storyline and when it started!

We learned that this storyline started in 2014! YES, that is correct! Mike Rich told us that he received the call just before Labor Day 2014. He received the call from John Lasseter. (John  Lasseter is an American animator, film director, screenwriter, and producer, who is the chief creative officer of Pixar Animation Studios, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and DisneyToon Studios) 

He mentioned that when looking at McQueen, he didn't have a problem. He didn't have a dilemma. At his last race, he was on top of the world. He was a champion racer. Things were going well for him. He said that part of the reason Pixar wanted him to come on board was because he worked on films that dealt with sports in the past and sometimes larger than life. 

He said you have to have something they can come back from. They wanted to take McQueen and make him vulnerable and take him down a notch. To explore this, they looked at big athletes that were going through a similar thing. 

Bob Peterson told us they talked about Kobe Bryant as he aged and his injuries as well as Michael Jordan. These guys were on top of the world and then they had these issues. They also looked at Jeff Gorgon who was about to retire. What do they do next in their life. Do they retire? Do they keep going?

The writers took from real experiences they watched happen. Kobe Bryant's famous 3 am post for example. He took to Facebook after his huge injury asking "What do I do now?". During the research for this movie, they took road trips to get more info. 

Bob Peterson: "It’s one of the most fun part of this process is living in the material, living in the source of the material."
During research, they went to Daytona 500 and sat in the stands and watched how fans would react. Mike also said that sitting in those stands he saw fans with McQueen shirts on! A moment at the race they took was Dale Earnhardt Junior taking the lead. This is when they had their story, they knew what they were going to do. McQueen would face a new set of drivers performing at a better level than him. When they were at Daytona 500, there was a museum and library. They learned about the old timers. The characters like Wendell scott and LouisSmithth. These people had obstacles just to go on the track. They had their "puzzle pieces" for the story, now they had to put it together.

More about the story coming together

Mike said that they had about 4 pages together and they had to present to John Lasseter, he was telling the story and when they got to the third page, he looked up and a single tear rolled down John Lasseter's face. 
Mike Rich "For me I thought afterwards, that’s the closest I’ll ever getting reading a script to Walt Disney."
The story was in place, now it was a dilemma on who he would be paired with. You have to have side characters. a side character needs to push that character to learn what that character needs to be. That is when they came up with Cruz Ramirez. Let me tell you now, her character is AMAZING. The knew that McQueen did not want to grow old. He wanted to stay viable. Who would be the one to push him there? Cruz would be. Cruz was a trainer. A trainer who wanted to be a racer herself but feared being so young, she wouldn't make it. Cruz is a spitfire. The writers realized that McWheen is the star, but Cruz needs to have her moment and shine too. You will see in the movie when you watch it as for what I am talking about.

I loved the idea of having a female character with such a big role in the movie because you don't see that often in the sports world. You don't see that often in the racing world as well. I can't say much more without giving away the whole movie, but it was amazing seeing and learning about the story behind how Cars 3 came to be and why they chose who they did and what they did to make this movie come to life. 
Cars 3 is in theaters June 16, 2017.
