Review: Lovehoney Desire Clitoral Vibrator

In case you hadn’t noticed, Lovehoney are one of my favourite retailers in the adult industry. They have a huge range of products and have the best customer service. I have had great experiences with their own brand products before so was beyond excited when I heard they were launching their first luxury toy range DesireI watched the making of the range video (which you can find on Youtube or the product pages) and this peaked my interest further. I decided to purchase the clitoral vibrator and have now had it for a few months. This was a difficult review to write as it took quite a while for me to determine how I felt about this toy.

The entire Desire range is sleek, well-designed and affordable. I think there’s a huge gap in the market for luxurious yet purse-friendly toys and it’s great to see some being introduced. This range was designed with the thousands of customer reviews on their site in mind so I had high hopes this toy would fit all my requirements. I was impressed with this toy, but I think it could give more expensive toys a run for their money if it had a few improvements.

LOVEHONEY DESIRE CLITORAL VIBRATOR 1The packaging is completely different from other Lovehoney own branded products. It arrives in a classy purple and black box with a picture of the toy on the front and the Lovehoney logo on the back. The real difference between this and their products is the contents of this purple box. I found a small storage case with the logo embedded into the sturdy material, this is so much more convenient than endless satin storage bags. It’s much easier for me to find this toy amongst the masses, thanks to the case.

Another great thing about the case is that is has a charging hole leading out of the back which allows you to charge your toy whilst it’s stored away safely. Useful feature for those of us with children or pets, as it keeps toys away from prying eyes or paws. The case has a netted section with some elasticated straps to hold the toy in place, a small netted pocket to hold the charging cable with a little left over room for the instructions and a small bottle of lube.

The quality of this clitoral vibrator is fantastic as expected, it is made from silky smooth silicone and is lightweight, yet sturdy. This toy has no visible seams to ruin the aesthetics. The shade of purple used is stunning, but I wish they’d chosen something other than one of the most generic colours in the industry. The Desire clitoral vibrator is bigger than the Nea 2 as it’s just a little larger than my palm yet it’s still small enough to be held between my partner and I during sex. This toy has buttons that are much easier to press than those on the Nea, they press down without resistance and I can operate the toy without needing to check I’m pressing the right button.

I always give new purchases a full charge before use, this toy only took 90 minutes and this offers 60 minutes of play. I think this is a good charge-to-play ratio, but if used on the higher speeds as I do, it’s more like 40 minutes. To charge simply plug the USB into your chosen charging port and push the jack into the silicone port on the base of the toy. The silicone self-covers the port when not being charged to ensure the toy is fully waterproof.

This toy is very easy to operate as there are only three buttons. The (+) button turns on the toy and increases intensity, (-) decreases intensity/turns the toy off and the central button operates the patterns. You have the option to decrease/increase the intensity of the patterns as described above. This toy has eight patterns to choose from and none of them really appeal to me, but I’ll explain that in the next paragraph. It’s claimed that this toy has 12 different levels of intensity, but I struggle to find them. I can find six or seven noticeable differences, the lowest being a gentle tickle and the highest being much stronger. I am not sure if it’s me or the toy, the intensities may just be so similar that I can’t tell the difference. The changes that I can feel are great, there’s a strength level suitable for everyone from the beginners vibrations to the more seasoned veteran who prefers something a bit tougher.

I am not a fan of patterns at the best of the times, but I find all eight of the patterns on this clitoral vibe to be buzzy and off-putting. I like the fact you can choose your desired intensity, but this won’t encourage me to use them. I couldn’t find a setting that was suitable for me, but if you do like patterns then there’s a decent variety to explore. The constant vibration however, is nice. As the intensity builds, the toy verges on rumbly, but it never quite makes it. It certainly isn’t the buzziest toy I’ve ever felt and I do enjoy the sensations it can provide, but I’d have liked some more depth to the vibrations. I can orgasm with this vibrator on full speed, but I need some internal stimulation at the same time.

My partner really enjoys this toy. I like to hold it against his balls or run it along his lubed-up shaft during a blowjob or hand job, and he seems to like it too. He is very responsive to this, especially on the higher settings. He isn’t usually vocal until he’s at the brink of an orgasm, but if I add this vibrator to the mix, he starts moaning right away. He becomes fidgety, shaky and his eyes roll back into his head. He has actually used this toy more than I have.

In terms of noise, I hoped it would be quiet enough that I could use it with people in the house. I still live at home so quietness is essential when it comes to sex toys, most can be drowned out with some background music, but the highest vibrations on this toy can still be heard from the next room. If people are in the room next door, I would opt for something quieter.

This was a great attempt at a luxury product. It’s a reasonably feisty toy that boasts excellent storage, quality and body-safety. I would recommend this to anyone but power queens, I’m not sure this toy has the below the surface rumbles to satisfy. It’s not weak by any means, but it could have done with being a little stronger in my opinion. It was definitely worth the money that I spent on it and whilst it may not be my go-to, it is my partners, so it’s a nice little toy to have in our collection.
