Lelo Hugo Introduction
Lelo was founded in 2003 by three designers with one simple question “What if our most intimate items were made as beautiful as the ones we displayed with the most pride?” They pride themselves on quality, unique designs, and beauty. They make everything from vibrators to lubricants, from butt toys to condoms.
All their products are made with body safe materials and with the consumer in mind. Their design team creates all their products with your needs in mind. Would the user enjoy this? Would this feel great? Is this safe? Does this look good? Is this unique to our line?
With these questions and more in mind, they created the Lelo Hugo, a prostate massager. It may not look like much; this little remote controlled device has more bells and whistles than I thought it would! Even at $219, it is worth every orgasm you will achieve with it.
What is the Lelo Hugo?
Simply put, Lelo Hugo is a remote controlled, powerful prostate massager. It is Lelo’s first male-specific toy. It has two motors, one in the base to stimulate the perineum and the other in the tip for intense prostate stimulation. And a SenseMotion remote control, but more on this later. Due to the design of the Hugo, it is meant to sit in place and stimulate through vibrations; there is no thrusting involved.
It is intended in an “L” shape; the external arm is more flexible than the rigid internal arm for better stimulation of the perineum. It is made from certified body safe material and is 100% waterproof. I am always a little skeptical when a toy claims it can be completely submerged in water without any adverse side-effects, but the Hugo comes with a one-year full coverage warranty. So, if by some freak chance, water does get into the inner workings of the toy, Lelo will replace it.
Lelo Hugo Features
The first thing I noticed while using the Lelo Hugo is that it can be confusing to use for those first few times. I found myself referring to the manual for my first week or so of using the toy. While it is a bit of nuisance to have to have the manual in hand while trying to get off, it was not that big of a deal.
When you first get the Lelo Hugo, it will need to be plugged up and charged. About one hour of charge time will get two hours of play. The toy itself is charged with the included cord while the remote takes two AA batteries (also included).
The toy and the SenseMotion remote pair up quickly, and it is controlled with flicks and tilts of the remote, which also vibrates as a form of feedback as to what the wearer is feeling. The vibration patterns increase or decrease based on how you tilt or flick the remote.
If the SenseMotion control is not your thing, you can also control the toy through the three buttons on the remote. There is one that increases, one that decreases, and one that changes the patterns. You press down the increase button on the remote and the button on the base of the Hugo to turn the toy on.
It has 12 vibration intensities and a handful of patterns. The patterns include a wave, a fast pulsating, a slow pulsating, and a random mode. You can adjust the intensity of the patterns through the use of the remote.
Furthermore, the Lelo Hugo features 100% body safe, medical grade silicone, and ABS plastic. It has a 3.5-inch insertable portion, with a girth just over 4 inches. The size, paired with the design of the toy makes this toy ideal for almost any level of experience user.
What comes in the box?
Lelo does not skimp out on the packaging of their boxes. This one is not discreet, but it reflects the luxury of the toy. In the box, you will find:
• The Lelo Hugo Prostate Massager
• A USB charging cable
• The wireless, SenseMotion remote control (The 2 AA batteries you will need for this are also included)
• An instruction manual (you will use this a lot!)
• A small packet of water-based Lelo brand anal lube (Only use water based lube with your toy. If you do want to use silicone, or another type of lube, test a small amount on the base of the toy to see how it reacts with the material.)
• A satin storage pouch (If the box is not discreet enough for your liking, you can use the pouch to store your toy in. Personally, I store it in the box.)
• A one-year warranty registration card (Be sure to register your toy!)

How to Use the Lelo Hugo
As I said before when you first get the Lelo Hugo, you will want to go ahead and throw it on the charger. One hour on the charger will give you about two hours of play time. After charging the toy, pair it with the remote.
You will want to use the lube sample that is included in the box if you do not have any anal safe lube. It is important that you use proper lube with anal toys, and if you only have generic water-based lubes, you will want to buy some thicker stuff.
Once you have the device paired and lubed up, it is time to insert it. It fits in place nicely, and due to the rigid shape, it provides direct and amazing stimulation! It is meant to be used handsfree. I have found that if I lay down with this in, it will not stay in place. But I can sit on it and rock, and this creates an incredible sensation.
What Do I Like About The Lelo Hugo
Medium-sized fit – The size and shape of the Lelo Hugo makes it perfect for most users. While size queens/kings may not find it big enough, brand new beginners may find the size to be too much.
Waterproof – It is completely waterproof, meaning you can use it in the shower. This also means that cleaning is a breeze because you do not have to worry about damaging the toy while cleaning it.
SenseMotion – I love that the person in control of the remote can feel what the wearer is feeling. This makes the experience more personalized and helps the controller to please and tease the wearer.
Safe Material – Any time you are going to stick something in your body, it is important to know the safety of it. Thankfully, with Lelo, you know that you are always getting top notch, 100% body safe material.
Rechargeable with a wireless remote and 2 x AAA batteries included – This is a pro and a con. I love that it is rechargeable because that means you get strong vibration without the worry of breaking the bank on batteries.
What I Didn’t Like About the Lelo Hugo
Batteries – I told you this was a pro and a con. Because the remote takes batteries, this means you always need to have AA’s on hand otherwise, once the batteries die in the remote you are limited to what you can do with the Hugo.
Size – This one is another pro/con. This toy is not good for experienced users who want a lot of girth. While the power is amazing and the variations in intensity and patterns are great, too, users who want something bigger will not like this.
On the other hand, complete newbies to the world of anal play may find the toy too large. At a 4 inch girth, I would not suggest the Lelo Hugo for the first thing you ever stick in your butt. People new to butt play should start with something smaller.
Cleaning spray recommended – The website and user manual both recommend that you buy their $15 cleaning spray to preserve the quality of the material. I have not run across this with any other company that uses 100% body safe, medical grade silicone, so it does make me question the reasoning behind this.
Vibrations wane when the battery starts to die – When the battery in the toy itself starts to die, the vibrations take a huge hit. The intensity dies down a good bit. This can be disappointing if you are mid-play and suddenly your power stops.
Price – The price of the Lelo Hugo is a whopping $219! While the quality is amazing and the vibrations are powerful, this is still a pretty penny to spend on a toy. If you have the money to blow, I highly recommend giving the Lelo Hugo a try.
My Final Verdict
The Lelo Hugo is a high quality, luxury toy for your butt. The vibrations range from beginner to experienced, while the size is more fit for those who are accustomed to things in their rear, but do not need huge toys to get off. If you are looking for a fantastic toy for your prostate and want something that gives you a bang for your buck, the Lelo Hugo is the perfect toy for you!
