It’s been a mind changing week here at chez LTASEX. First I find a metal toy that makes me squeal, now I’ve found the perfect anal vibrator. Perfect, except for the fact that it’s not actually made for anal play. Regardless, Zizo by Picobong offers up some unmatched performance and easily earns the Sexpert Approved seal.

When I first checked out Picobong Ako, my immediate response was, “fuck that silicone is smooth.” When I first checked out Picobong Zizo, my response was “thank fuck” because it has the very same super soft silicone finish. I didn’t notice last time but this thing is near frictionless on my wet and dry skin – inserting the Zizo makes it more obvious than on the shorter Ako.
That near-frictionless exterior is so very helpful when it comes to insertion. With just a little bit of lube it’ll slide in and out very easily. Even though it’s nearly frictionless, it’s still somehow very easy to grip with 2 or more fingers.
Just as with the Picobong Ako and all other Lelo manufactured toys, Picobong Zizo is extremely well made. Everything about it says quality in your hand. The box is a major giveaway that it isn’t top shelf but, once you toss that out, you’d never know.
The shape and size are very comfortable to me. The angle is great for prostate and g-spot play. When used anally, the dip in the middle of the vibe will allow you to use it a bit like a plug with the controls left outside the body. It’s only a little bit bigger than the Lelo Ella and a little smaller than the Colt Prowler. So, it should be a comfortable medium for most people.
The controls are very easy to use. They’re easy to press on purpose but near impossible to press by accident. Since there are only 3 buttons and they’re arranged logically, I intuitively knew how to flip through the vibration patterns and strength without having to look at it.
Ok, now let’s talk about the vibration. I am not sure if there’s a word to describe how different the vibrations feel on the Zizo versus any other vibe, including the Colt Prowler, Doc Johnson Black Magic, and Picobong Tano. Whereas most vibes give you sensation just on the skin, Zizo send vibrations deep into the muscles. It really makes the nerves spark up, prostate throb and muscles squirm. It’s perhaps the best and most unusual vibration I’ve ever felt. If nothing else about Picobong Zizo appeals to you, I appeal to you to buy it just to feel the difference. This is mainly selfish because I really need to talk about it with somebody. I feel like I’m lost in a world where nothing makes sense anymore.
The multiple functions are actually pretty worthwhile. I actually found one I prefer to the standard vibration, which never happens. I think the unique vibration may have something to do with that.
I didn’t time it but the battery life leaves a good impression. I definitely got more than the 2 hours quoted on the box.
Although Zizo is waterproof and I’ve had no leakage, liquid will get under the cap. This doesn’t pose any harm to the device but it means you have to remove the battery cap to clean it, which is annoying.
The price may seem high but it’s more than fair for the quality.
If you’re looking for a vibrator, Picobong Zizo by Lelo is a great choice. It’s high quality, fairly priced and a definite contender for best of the year. Yes, I know it’s only April but it’s only the second toy I’ve reviewed this year that has made me want to continually use it, that’s extremely high praise.
