You’ve probably gotten the sense that the Lelo Hugo prostate massager is a pretty special sex toy. This massager’s array of features makes it unique. This comprehensive review will dissect each of the toy’s components, so you can decide whether they will work for you or not. Let’s get right to it!
Lelo Butt Plugs Overview
Without question, Lelo is a household name in the sex toy industry. Since the brand came on the scene in 2003, it has stood out thanks to its impressive blend of luxury and performance.
Knowing that anal stimulation delivers incredible pleasure, Lelo has manufactured some of the best butt plugs. The brand offers the Bruno prostate massager, which uses its elegant silicone form to provide a refreshing treat. The BOB butt plug is another impressive creature of Lelo. It is elegantly sculpted with great attention to detail to deliver profound pleasure.
Moreover, we can’t discuss Lelo butt plugs without mentioning the LOKI prostate massager. This toy is perfectly angled for a powerful prostate massage. Its successor, the LOKI Wave™, uses the innovative WaveMotion™ technology to curl in a ‘come-hither’ motion for incredibly satisfying prostate massage.
No way we are leaving out the BILLY 2 prostate massager, another luxurious Lelo butt plug with ultra-smooth premium silicone that is extra soft to the touch. Then, there’s Lelo’s ultra-luxury anal plug—EARL™. This plug is available in either 24K gold or stainless steel. Does any butt plug scream luxury louder than that? We guess not.
Furthermore, Lelo offers the Hugo prostate massager, the subject of our review. Although all of the brand’s butt plugs are different, none of them lacks the luxury touch and performance.
Lelo Hugo vs Lelo Bruno
The Lelo Bruno is unarguably the most similar to the Hugo among all of the brand’s prostate massagers. Both toys are so similar that some people struggle to decide the ideal option for them. We’ve pitted Lelo Hugo vs Bruno to ensure you have all the information you need to make the right choice.
At first glance, the prostate massagers look almost the same, but they have a few differences that may make your decision much more straightforward. Both sex toys sport a reasonably thick shape that’s not too intimidating for beginners yet perfect for more advanced lovers of prostate massage. The Lelo Hugo and Bruno boast elegant curves and a smooth silicone surface for complete comfort.
As if that wasn’t enough, both prostate massagers feature two impressive motors that ideally deliver the necessary power to stimulate your prostate. In fact, they have the same diameter, insertable length, and weight. So, what are the differences between the Lelo Hugo and Bruno if they seem so evenly matched?
Firstly, the Lelo Hugo boasts eight pleasure settings, while the Bruno offers less with six settings. With more options, the Lelo Hugo naturally provides a more pleasurable experience.
On the other hand, the Lelo Bruno uses a single button control to change the vibration patterns. While this model does not have the luxury of remote control technology, it does have an expected advantage over the Hugo; it’s cheaper.
Besides, the remote control technology, which seems to be the only significant difference between both prostate massagers, turns out to be the deciding factor for us. This technology opens up a big world of possibilities for you. If you’re an adventurous couple, your partner can have the power over your pleasure with the Lelo Hugo, but you won’t get that from the Lelo Bruno.
Ultimately, the choice is in your hands, whether you are willing to pay more for an extra, significant feature in the Hugo or you’re just fine with the Bruno. For the record, the Lelo Hugo is our favorite, thanks to the extra opportunities it offers.
One of the biggest selling points of the Lelo Hugo is its elegant and robust construction. So, let’s take a deep dive into the features that make up this prostate massager’s construction.
The Lelo Hugo prostate massager’s elegance is not by mistake. Thank its materials. Lelo has an excellent reputation for using velvety smooth silicone to make its product. The Lelo Hugo massager does not have it differently. It is built from the same silicone material that is lovely to touch and feel. And the elegant appearance is wholly the result of the matte finish.
We like many things about the Lelo Hugo’s silicone surface. Apart from its smoothness, which eases entry and removal, it is hypoallergenic. That means it is body-safe. Also, the massager does not contain latex and phthalate. This is a good thing considering both materials pose some health risks.
While latex can trigger allergic reactions Trusted SourceLatex Allergy: What It Is, Symptoms, Prevention A latex allergy is a reaction to natural rubber (or latex), which is used to make things like examination gloves and balloons. There is no cure for allergy to latex. my.clevelandclinic.org in some people, phthalate is also not safe Trusted SourcePhthalates and other additives in plastics: human exposure and associated health outcomes Concern exists over whether additives in plastics to which most people are exposed, such as phthalates, bisphenol A or polybrominated diphenyl ethers, may cause harm to human health by altering endocrine function or through other biological mechanisms. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov . We also like that the silicone is non-porous. You’re going to appreciate this quality when you get to cleaning the prostate massager. The toy won’t absorb fluids, making it sterilizable after each use. Hygiene doesn’t get better than that.
Away from silicone, the base of the Lelo Hugo sex toy features ABS plastic. Like silicone, this plastic is phthalate-free, hypoallergenic, non-porous, and fully body-safe. On top of that, the material is robust and can stand the test of time.
Lelo Hugo comes with a control button on the base. This button helps to switch the device on and off. It also controls the vibrations when you cycle through the preset patterns.
However, you will agree with us that the one button is not enough for the best experience. Imagine your frustration when you must reach back down and push the button whenever you want to change the vibration pattern. The lone button further limits your experience by not allowing public couple’s play.
Thankfully, the Lelo Hugo SenseMotion remote takes care of all those limitations. It utilizes internal motion sensors to deliver convenient action. Unlike the primary device with only one button, the remote sports multiple buttons. The remote syncs with your massager once you turn it on.
Without the remote, you get only one intensity mode, but with it, you get several intensity options. That means you can control your experience and raise the intensity from low to high if you prefer to start slower. Essentially, the remote control lets you do whatever you want to do with your massager. You get to be naughty and creative.
Moreover, SenseMotion offers three modes that deliver different functions. The first mode uses the placement of the remote to work. For example, the Lelo Hugo prostate massager’s vibrations are at 10% intensity when the remote is in a horizontal position. The intensity steadily increases when the remote starts to move in a vertical position.
As you might have guessed, the intensity reaches 100% once the remote is entirely vertical. So, that leaves you fully in charge of your pleasure. Simply move the remote to match your preferred intensity.
The second mode is all about shaking the remote. The harder you shake the remote, the higher the intensity of your toy’s vibrations. Unsurprisingly, this one becomes uncomfortable at some point during the session. If you are not in for exercising your biceps, you can switch to the first mode or the third one.
In the third mode, you must push the preset patterns and intensity controls on the remote. More specifically, press the () button on the remote to cycle through patterns. Press the + or – buttons to increase or decrease the intensity of the massager’s vibrations.
Overall weight and size
The last thing you want is a prostate massager that is too heavy to carry. A heavy toy can undoubtedly frustrate your experience and take away from the fun. It’s a good thing that the Lelo Hugo is perfectly weighted at only 4 ounces. While this prostate massager is not heavy, it’s not too light. Essentially, it strikes the right balance, making it convenient to handle for prostate stimulation.
Moreover, the Lelo Hugo’s size complements the weight so well. From the image of the massager, you can see it has two sides; one for the prostate and another for the perineum—the area between your penis and your anus. The insertable part is 4.2 inches long, while the perineum side is about 4.1 inches long, enough to massage your perineum and stimulate your balls.
Besides, the device’s widest point has a circumference of 4 inches. Frankly, we have no complaints regarding the overall weight and size of the Lelo Hugo prostate massager. They are a perfect blend, and you won’t have trouble handling the toy.
Many prostate massagers cannot resist water. Some that say they can do so are not 100% waterproof. With the Lelo Hugo prostate massager, there is no such concern. This pleasure device can take as much water as you expose it to. That means you can play with it in the shower or bathtub without fear of damage.
Without question, the waterproof design is a fantastic feature that only heightens the fun. Imagine returning home after a rough day at work and stimulating your prostate in a hot, steamy bathtub. It doesn’t get better than that.
However, you risk damaging your Lelo Hugo prostate massager if you remove the little cap that covers its charging port. You should only remove the cap when you want to charge your toy. Always secure the cap before use to ensure the prostate massager is safe from damage. Once you’re confident that you’ve fulfilled all righteousness, get on with the fun!
Diameter and insertable length
In this case, you want to ensure the diameter and insertable length are suitable. Those two factors will determine whether you invest in the prostate massager or not.
Some Lelo butt plugs feature bulbous heads that are too big to stay inside your anus comfortably. This situation is not a problem for the Lego Hugo prostate massager. You might have seen some people describe the toy as medium-sized. That’s right! With a diameter of 1.28 inches, this massager does not intimidate beginners but touches advanced users in the right places.
In terms of how much of the prostate vibrator can enter your anus, only 3.4 inches of the toy is insertable. It is not too short or too long; it strikes the right balance. A prostate massager is not a dildo; you do not need five inches or more. You just need the massager to reach your prostate and stimulate it, and 3.4 inches is more than enough.
When using the Lelo Hugo, you may be frustrated by the massager slipping out when your sphincter contracts, but that would be because you’re not doing it correctly. Before inserting the toy, ensure that you are completely relaxed and your mind is in the right place for the fun ahead.
The Lelo Hugo prostate massager’s motors are responsible for its desirable performance. As already mentioned, this pleasure device comes with two powerful motors that deliver excellent vibrations. The two motors are evenly divided between the prostate and perineum arms.
Hence, you enjoy dual stimulation using the Lelo Hugo prostate massager. While one motor stimulates your prostate, the other will stimulate your perineum simultaneously.
Durability and warranty
The Lelo Hugo prostate massager doesn’t disappoint in terms of durability, thanks to its robust construction. It boasts a durable design that can last for years if you maintain it correctly.
If the prostate massager suffers damage (that you didn’t inflict) within one year of purchase, rest assured Lelo will provide you with a replacement for free. If the one-year warranty does not make you confident enough, the 10-year quality guarantee will. You can turn to it if your toy becomes faulty after a year of purchase has passed or if you lost your warranty card.
Although this guarantee package may not be the most lucrative to you because it does not offer a free replacement, it’s as generous as you’ll get. If your Lelo Hugo prostate massager develops a fault within ten years of purchase, the manufacturer offers you a 50% discount on your next Lelo order of up to five products.
Another big part of the construction of the Lelo Hugo prostate massager is its battery. As you probably know already, this sex toy is rechargeable. So, it features a 420 mAh lithium-ion battery. The battery is quite powerful and reliable. Essentially, it is one you can trust to serve you for a long time without hiccups.
Speaking of battery, the SenseMotion remote uses two AAA batteries. Of course, those are not rechargeable and you’ll have to replace them after a while. Even though we are not big fans of the remote using AAA batteries, the fact that they are not expensive is a positive.
When you unpack the Lelo Hugo prostate massager, you will find a small USB cord among the accessories. The cord, which you can use to charge the main unit, is only a few inches long. No doubt, we would have preferred a longer cable. Nevertheless, the length of the charger does not limit its primary function of charging the built-in battery.
You can plug the provided USB cord into a port on your computer, phone charger, or a USB wall socket. Then, insert the tiny part of the cord into the prostate massager. As we already explained, you need to remove the cap covering the port before inserting the charger.
Once the charger connects to the Lelo Hugo, you will see a small light flashing next to the power button. A solid and stable light will come on when the device is fully charged.
Many things have been said about the impressive construction of the Lelo Hugo prostate massager. Now, let’s talk about the pleasure device’s performance.
Ease of use
We can’t talk about the performance of the Lelo Hugo prostate massager without mentioning the ease of use. As we’ve alluded to a few times in this article, the sex toy offers exceptional ease of use. From the elegant design to the one-button control and the SenseMotion remote, this massager hardly gives you any trouble using it.
The Lelo Hugo inserts very nicely with minimal effort, and the controls are pretty easy to understand and use. Also, the massager’s waterproof design makes it easy to use without worrying about causing damage. Overall, the Hugo’s ease of use is admirable and unquestionable.
Vibration patterns are another big part of the Lelo Hugo’s performance. The prostate massager offers six pre-programmed vibration patterns. These different patterns deliver varying, tantalizing sensations that you can only appreciate when you get the toy inside your butt.
They range from gentle ones that build up to intense ones that will hit you hard until you finish. Another pattern can deliver “gradual rise and gradual fall” sensations. Just choose your treat. Moreover, each of the six vibration patterns uses various intensity levels that are up to you.
As we explained before, the toy’s one button won’t help you cycle through intensity levels but the SenseMotion remote will. Lelo does not provide the number of intensity levels, but we counted eight to ten while playing with the Hugo. Essentially, you have plenty of intensity levels to play with regardless of the vibration pattern you choose.
Remote control range
If you and your partner are considering public play with the Lelo Hugo prostate massager, you must care about the remote control range. The remote’s wireless range is up to 10 meters, which is pretty good.
For public play, you have to be in your partner’s sight so that they can see what their action is doing to you. In that case, you and your partner will always be within 10 meters of each other and the SenseMotion remote will work just fine.
The Lelo Hugo offers a good level of comfort, thanks to its construction. Its silky-soft silicone surface feels so smooth, making it comfortable to wear. The remote control also adds comfort to the toy’s performance.
Additionally, the Lelo Hugo prostate massager’s waterproof design provides extra comfort to users since it makes cleaning easier. Knowing that your sex toy is waterproof, you get to clean it properly without hesitating.
Stimulation and feel
Let’s talk about what it feels like for the Lelo Hugo to stimulate your prostate to orgasm. Remember, we mentioned that the massager uses various vibration patterns. A couple of “pulse” patterns send P-waves throughout your body. When you use these patterns, you can feel that they’re not vibrating; instead, they are pulsating.
Then, the vibrating patterns deliver intense vibrations that shake up the inside of your butt with a tingling sensation. They get even more exciting when you heighten the intensity levels. A big prostate “O” is almost inevitable when you keep the intensity up. Overall, the Lelo Hugo prostate massager’s stimulation and feel are exceptional and you can expect satisfying results.
We didn’t exaggerate when we mentioned that the Lelo Hugo’s battery is reliable. This prostate massager will give you up to two hours of use at full charge. However, the working time can reduce to 90 minutes if you continuously use higher intensity levels. Not to worry, 90 minutes is a long time for you to reach prostate orgasm.
You can even use the sex toy for a second session without recharging it, although that’s something we don’t advise. We recommend that you go into every massage session with a full charge. That helps you avoid the disaster of your massager turning off in the middle of the fun session.
The Lelo Hugo’s charging time is virtually proportional to the working time. You will get a full charge in two hours whenever you charge the pleasure device. That may seem long to you, but it doesn’t have to be a problem. Just ensure that you charge the massager after each use. You won’t even have to wait for a second for it to reach full charge the next time you’re massaging your prostate.
Noise level is crucial to consider whether you are for solo fun or a couple’s play in public. Frankly, the Lelo Hugo prostate massager can be a bit noisy. Although it has a maximum noise level of 50 dB, it generally stays below that level, which is the same as a normal conversation. So, the Hugo’s noise won’t be a problem with background noise.
Besides, keep in mind that the remote vibrates with similar intensity as the massager and is usually not discreet. So, you’ll do well not to use the toy in a quiet place where you don’t want to be discovered. Public play in a public park or club sounds perfect.
If you want to take a break from using the Lelo Hugo prostate massager, it has a standby mode that works for 90 days. However, ensure that you take the toy to a full charge before putting it in standby mode.
While the construction and performance of the Lelo Hugo prostate massager are vital to user experience, maintenance is not to be ignored. We’ll discuss the toy’s care below.
Lelo prioritizes buyers’ privacy, so it’s no surprise that it offers discreet shipping. That means the Lelo Hugo’s packaging does not include anything that suggests its content. So, you can receive your massager in the presence of other people and they won’t even know what it is.
When you have a non-porous and waterproof prostate massager, you need no expert to tell you that it’s easy to clean. All you need to clean the Lelo Hugo properly are a toy cleaning spray or warm water and mild antibacterial soap. After washing the prostate massager, pat it dry with a clean towel.
Accessories and storage
Once you open the Lelo Hugo prostate massager, you will find the following:
- Lelo Hugo
- SenseMotion remote control
- USB charging cord
- 2xAAA batteries for the remote
- Key for the remote battery compartment
- Satin storage pouch
- Warranty registration card, and
- Detailed instruction manual
Once your Lelo Hugo is dried up, store it away in the provided satin pouch.
If you are not entirely convinced about the Lelo Hugo, it’s okay. Go through these alternatives and see if they look like what you’re looking for.
Like the Lelo Hugo, the We-Vibe Vector uses a remote control. It also uses two motors for internal prostate pleasure and external perineum pleasure. However, the We-Vibe Vector prostate massager does one better than the Lelo Hugo; you can control it via an app. It uses the free We-Vibe app for long-distance play, essentially shrinking the distance between you and your faraway lover.
Lovense Edge 2
The Lovense Edge 2 is a luxury prostate massager like the Lelo Hugo, but you can control it via an app for hands-free and long-distance play with your partner. As if that wasn’t enough, the Edge 2’s vibrations can sync with nearby music, giving you unique sensations. Also, this massager is cheaper than the Lelo Hugo.
Speaking of alternatives to the Lelo Hugo prostate massager, the Nexus Revo is a worthy contender. It sports a unique rotating head for intense, tantalizing P-spot stimulation. The rotating head runs either clockwise or anticlockwise, depending on your preference. Then, there’s a ribbed external stimulator that rocks the perineum.
Additionally, the Nexus Revo’s discreet remote control boasts a range of up to an impressive 15 meters for creative couple’s play.
Aneros Vice 2
Like the Lelo Hugo prostate massager and other alternatives we’ve provided, the Aneros Vice 2 offers dual stimulation. The ergonomically-designed prostate vibrator delivers satisfying anal pleasure and the flared base stimulates the perineum. Also, this prostate massager provides remote control for hands-free fun and couple’s play.
However, the Aneros Vice 2 provides some features others do not offer. Firstly, it offers a whopping 18 vibration patterns for endless fun. It makes sense that its remote control displays pattern number, so you can easily keep track of the patterns you’re using. Furthermore, this prostate massager sports an interactive ‘joy button’ that allows you to create your own patterns.
We hope our Lelo Hugo review has helped point you in the right direction. This prostate massager is undoubtedly reliable for stimulating the prostate and triggering an orgasm. If you want to look at other anal toys that use remote control, check out our list of the best remote butt plugs.
