My Verdict

The vibrations on this toy were intense, and it gave me a great clitoral orgasm, so that was great! However, I found the curved, mirror-like surface a bit disconcerting, and it didn't really add anything to the toy. It also wasn't immediately obvious which end you were meant to use!

  2. want to use the toy alongside vaginal penetration
  3. like varying patterns of vibration
  4. you want variation from clitoral suction toys

About The Lovehoney Desire Luxury Clitoral Vibrator

This toy is a silicon purple curved pebble shape, with one more pointed end and one wider end that contains a shiny metal-like plastic patch with the buttons on the other side. There are plus and minus buttons, and in the middle of them is a button which changes the vibration pattern. It also features a travel lock so it cannot be accidentally turned on in a bag. It is not immediately clear, and the instructions don't say, which end of this toy was meant to be used on the clitoral area. Eventually, through testing both ends and the position of the buttons, I realised it was the smaller end the was meant to be used, which left me questioning what the purpose of the reflective end is, a question I was unable to find an answer to. It is possible that this end could be run across other parts of the body (though that's true of both ends), so it's still unclear to me what its function is.

The vibrations of the Lovehoney Desire Luxury Clitoral Vibrator are fairly quiet, quite powerful, and very buzzy

My Reflections on the Lovehoney Desire Luxury Rechargeable Clitoral Vibrator

My Personal Experiences with Lovehoney Desire Luxury Clitoral Vibrator

Slightly confused at the start

When I first looked at this clit vibrator I assumed the shiny, metal-like part of the toy had to be the bit that was actually used on my clit. Why else would this feature exist? I read the instructions, and they didn’t say otherwise, so I put some water-based lube on it and started cycling through the speeds. I found the vibrations quite intense – so intense that they actually seemed to be making the springs of my mattress vibrate, but they weren’t particularly enjoyable. I also noticed that the up and down buttons were on the opposite ends to what I’ve had on every other toy I’ve used so I thought – am I using this backwards? Then I read the manual again which says, “tapered tip of your vibrator has been lovingly crafted to target your clitoris” (which is an over-the-top description for something mass-produced in a factory in China, but I digress), so I thought, “Maybe I meant to use the more pointed end?” To be honest, if you had given me a toy this shape that didn’t have the shiny bit, I’d immediately have put the pointed end on my clit first, it was only the shiny part that had thrown me, so I spun it around and it started working a lot better!

Intense orgasm on highest level

As someone extremely used to using clitoral suction toys to orgasm, the pure clitoral vibrations were a new sensation, that took some getting used to but I really enjoyed the experience. With the suction toys, I’m used to just placing the toy on my clit and not moving it much as I run up through the levels, which is what I started doing here, but found I got much more pleasure by rubbing the toy back and forth on my clit. It took a bit of time, and I was on the highest vibration level, but when I orgasmed it was extremely intense, and it didn’t leave me with the kind of sensitivity that makes it hard to take the toy away that a suction toy does. I tried the different pulsation settings, and liked that you could increase or decrease the intensity of those as well which isn’t an option on some toys, but generally I find that I prefer the pure vibrations. It was nice, however, that on this toy the pulse patterns were a separate button, so it was harder to accidentally switch to them. The toy said it was pebble-shaped to be used one-handed, and this may work for some who have different shaped vulvas than me, but I personally needed one hand to hold my lips apart, and the other to direct the toy specifically to my clit. I tried one-handed, but couldn’t get the toy in the right placement.

But why the reflection?

Once I discovered the reflective part of the toy wasn’t meant for my clit and turned it around, I was stuck with the fact that it was now reflected a distorted image back at me, which mostly contained my fingers holding my vulva open, my pubic hair, and a tiny bump at the top that was my head. It reminded me of some bathtubs taps that reflect a rounded version of yourself back at you. I’m not a particularly self-conscious person, but it seemed totally unnecessary, and I found it strange that it wasn’t mentioned at all in the manual or on the box. Does this feature do anything? Why does it exist?

Overall thoughts

I thought this toy was a nice option for bringing variety to clitoral toys and gave a great orgasm – you just have to ignore your reflection in it!

While the surface feels good and the shape is nice, the strange reflective part that doesn't seem to have a function lowers the rating a lot for me.

Generally, this felt like a high level of performance, though slightly on the louder side, and the manual stated up to 60 minutes of battery time. The travel lock is a nice feature if you don't want it to start accidentally buzzing in your bag. Otherwise, the features are fairly standard.

The toy comes with a nice, small, storage bag that it fits into well with no little additional space. The bag even has two zips that could be interlined with a suitcase lock if you wanted to really stop people from seeing the toy. When originally unboxed, the toy did come with a lot of plastic bags which felt unnecessary. Could they have not just packaged it in this pouch that you're meant to store it in anyway?

This is waterproof, but suggests that it should be washed with toy cleaner and left to air dry. It was very easy to clean, and didn't have any difficult creases or anything like that.

My journey to sex toys has been a long one – I struggled with feeling a lack of sexual pleasure for many years, and though I was interested in toys, found little that worked for me in my haphazard exploration of them. However, at 30, I received psychosexual therapy, which gave me my first orgasm and introduced me to clitoral suction toys – a firm favourite ever since!
