[Toy Review] Lovehoney Heart Throb Heart Massager

I’m all about combining the romantic with the sexy (just ask my partners!) So when I received Lovehoney’s 2023 Christmas gift guide, I was immediately drawn to the “Heart Throb” heart massager.

But how did it fare in use and did it win my heart?

Lovehoney “Heart Throb” Heart Massager

The Lovehoney Heart Throb is a heart-shaped vibrator measuring a tiny 3″ in length (that’s small enough to fit into the palm of your hand!) It has indented curve detailing on both sides, making it look like the heart insignia from Lovehoney’s branding.

The Heart Throb is rechargeable via the included cable, and 1 hour of charging will get you around an hour of runtime. It’s waterproof (submersible) and features a handy travel lock.

The outside of the toy is 100% body-safe silicone in a rich shade of red.

The Heart Throb retails for £29.99 ($34.99 US.)

The Heart Throb Vibrator In Use: Pros & Cons

First, let’s talk about what I liked about this toy.

  • It’s cute af. And did I mention that it’s cute?
  • The body of the toy is firm with only the slightest bit of “squish,” making it easy to get plenty of pressure.
  • Lovely soft silicone.
  • Small enough to hold in your palm and slide between bodies during partnered sex, if you want to.
  • The single button is sensibly located (in the centre at the top) and easy to press.
  • It’s super light and easy to hold.
  • The shape means that you can get broader stimulation by holding it flat against your body, more pinpoint stimulation by using the tip, or something in between by using the side. Lots of options!

That’s quite a lot of good points, no? Now onto what I didn’t like:

  • There are 10 settings – 3 constant vibration speeds and 7 patterns – but only one button. Yup, it’s that annoying “you have to scroll allllll the way through if you want to change down” problem again.
  • The thick silicone dampens the vibrations a lot.
  • The vibrations are weak and buzzy. Unfortunately this is literally the number one thing I look for in a vibrator – a decent and rumbly motor – so it’s a pretty unforgiveable flaw.

This toy started out so promising. It’s just a shame that it is let down by having such a crappy motor. I wanted to love it, but it totally failed to make me cum (and, at this level of power, I can’t imagine it ever would.) For me, it’s not even great for a warm-up because the buzziness is more likely to put my clit to sleep than wake it up!


It’s super adorable, but as a vibrator the Heart Throb heart massager is only mediocre.

It’s a cute and sexy stocking stuffer for someone who likes gentler vibrations. If you’re more into power and rumbles, though, skip it.
