[Toy Review] Lovehoney Desire Luxury Clitoral Vibrator

This toy has a lot to recommend it. I’m a big fan of Lovehoney – they mainly avoid gimmicks, have a solid returns policy, and provide good quality toys at reasonable prices, with quick and discreet delivery. I bought my first ever sex toy (a tiny bullet vibe) from them nearly a decade ago and I still go to them for the majority of my sexy needs.

The Desire Luxury Clitoral Vibrator is a nice simple little clitoral vibrator. It’s USB rechargeable and waterproof. The front has 3 buttons – on/turn up, setting change, and off/turn down. It’s around 3 inches long and is inflexible but very soft. It also comes in an attractive and discreet case.

For me, it actually worked best when I pressed it side on to my clit, but your mileage – and body – may vary.

The Desire Clitoral Vibrator has 8 different modes or “patterns” of vibration. As usual, I preferred the constant vibration turned on high, but it’s worth experimenting to see what works best for you. The ramp-up-then-back-down setting is perfect for a slow tease!

My Ratings (all scores out of 5★)

Price: ★★★★
This vibrator retails at £59.99. This will definitely be out of some budgets, but it’s worth spending for a good toy if you can afford it. The quality is in line with the price.

Materials: ★★★★★
The Desire Clitoral Vibe is made of beautiful soft silicone with a matte finish and contains no latex or phthalates, which means it’s completely body-safe as well as feeling absolutely gorgeous.

Appearance: ★★★★
I can’t fault the design – it’s simple and stylish The whole Desire range has a sexy and stylish purple and black colour scheme.

Ease of Use: ★★★★★
Very light, ergonomically designed and fits well in my tiny hand. This is a real plus as I sometimes struggle to hold and manipulate bigger toys for the 20+ minutes it can take me to get off. The buttons are easy to press and it’s so self-explanatory that I haven’t even opened the instruction booklet.

Ease of care & cleaning: ★★★★★
Easy to clean with a sterile wipe (available from medical suppliers.) It’s waterproof too, so you can clean it with soap and warm water.  It’s not really condom-compatible, so I recommend sterilising it before sharing with a partner. You could also use a barrier like a dental dam if it’s easier.

Versatility: ★★★
The Desire Clitoral Vibe comes with 8 functions and the constant vibration speed can be turned up or down. It can be positioned against your clitoris in different ways depending on where you like your vibrations focussed. It’s waterproof, so you can use it in the bath or shower if that’s your thing. Not suitable for internal use.

Intensity: ★★★
This is the main place this toy falls down. If it had been more powerful, I would have loved to give it five stars. That said, it did get me off, it just took longer than it would with a higher powered vibe. Good if you have a sensitive clit and find the Doxys and Hitachis of the world too overwhelming.

Overall Score: ★★★★
Overall, I enjoyed using this toy and I’m keen to see more from the Desire range. If you’re looking for a reliable and body-safe mid-intensity vibrator, look no further. Serious power lovers should look elsewhere.
