[Toy Review] Lovehoney Glow-in-the-Dark Dildo

Here we are, already half way through the #12DaysofLovehoney project! It’s been super fun bringing a mixed bag of reviews to you lovely folks over the last few days, and I’m excited for the next six.

Let’s dive into today’s review. Check out the rest of the series, too!

A glow-in-the-dark dildo? Why!?

Why not, that’s why.

That’s right – today, we’re looking at Lovehoney’s new glow-in-the-dark dildo! (Described in the product copy as a “dazzling disco stick,” which I find hilariously charming.)

It’s a clear silicone dildo with strip of blue glow-in-the-dark material inside (it also comes in pink, if that’s more your colour.) It is semi-realistic in design, with a veined shaft, prominent head that mimics a circumcised bio cock, and balls at the base. The total length is 7.5″, the insertable length is 5.5″, and the shaft is 1.5″ in diameter.

It is, unusually, made with a translucent silicone. At first glance, it looks a bit like some of the jelly toys I’ve seen over the years, so I wanted to be sure it was really silicone. Don’t worry – it definitely is. That means the glow-in-the-dark dildo is completely body-safe and you can use it with confidence.

The glow-in-the-dark dildo features a suction cup, so you can stick it to the wall/floor/window/shower for hands-free play. The suction cup is impressively strong and stays put very well. This dildo will also fit nicely in many strap-on harnesses (you’ll need a 1.5″ O-ring.) Thanks to the balls and suction cup base, it’s even safe for anal play. (Never use anything anally that doesn’t have a large or flared base!)

Does it actually glow?

Yep!

Don’t ask me how, because I do not understand the science behind glow-in-the-dark things. But yes, it does, and it’s impressively bright. The instructions say to keep the dildo in the light for a short while before taking it into a dark space. I sat it next to my daylight lamp for 15 minutes, before taking it into my darkened bedroom to see the glow.

Here’s the result:

It is very difficult to get a good picture of something in the dark!

How does it feel?

The glowing is a fun touch and makes this toy a bit different from all the millions of other great silicone dildos out there. But does it actually do its job?

Fortunately, the glow-in-the-dark dildo isn’t all gimmick and no substance. It is also perfectly functional basic dildo that’s fun and pleasurable to use. The shaft is very flexible, making it easy to angle it just right to hit your preferred internal spots. It’s soft, squishy, and not too girthy. If I’m just after some penetration to accompany clitoral stimulation or warm me up for p-in-v sex, it’s perfect.

Some reviewers have reported finding the veins pleasurable, but the inside of my vagina isn’t really sensitive enough to notice them. What does feel great is the pronounced, realistic head, which is ideal for targeting the G-spot.

Bonus: the balls make a convenient handle for thrusting purposes!

One thing to be aware of is that the silicone is very matte in texture and therefore feels quite “grabby”. You’ll want to use plenty of lube for comfortable play. A gentle water-based lube is ideal with silicone toys.

So do I recommend the glow-in-the-dark dildo?

This is a decent quality silicone dildo at a great price! It retails for £29.99 at Lovehoney. If you’re after a functional all-rounder, the glow-in-the-dark dildo is a great pick. Even better if you like a little fun and whimsy your toys!

A cute way to bring some glow to your bedroom, or a fun stocking stuffer for a lover.
