Lelo is best known for providing toys that fit most body types and provide the best pleasure science has to offer, and here at Tugbro, we love these luxurious toys. Prostate massages already enhance a males orgasm, but the Lelo Hugo has the potential to increase pleasure from anal masturbation by 33%! While it isn’t your typical avenue for male pleasure, the Lelo Hugo surely delivers on ease and orgasm.
Anal vibrators often feature a tapered end, a flared base, and body-safe material. That’s the bare minimum to expect from companies that create anal pleasure devices. When I look for an anal device, I want much more than the bare minimum.
Most anal vibrators aim for the prostate, but many miss the mark, are hard to operate and aren’t powerful enough to actually get the user off. When I got my hands on the Hugo, I knew that Lelo went out of their way to stand out and created a vibrator that will fit most body types. This prostate massager screams luxury.

The Lelo Hugo
Without going into too many details, the Lelo Hugo is a powerful, hands-free prostate massager. This is Lelo’s first male-specific toy and they really went all out when it comes down to the finer details. It has two motors, one that stimulates the perineum, located in the base of the toy, the other is located in the tip of the toy for direct prostate control.
Thanks to their innovative design, Hugo doesn’t require any thrusting and is meant to sit in place while stimulating the wearer through strong vibrations. The “L” shaped design features a flexible external arm that pushes against the taint for additional pleasure and a rigid internal arm that fits perfectly against the prostate.
The entire prostate massager is made of body-safe silicone and not only is it completely waterproof, but also rechargeable. The best part is if something happens to cause my Lelo Hugo to malfunction, it comes with a one-year warranty and Lelo will replace it at no charge to me!
What Features Does It Have?
The Lelo Hugo comes with all of the bells and whistles, but before I could use it, I had to charge it. The Hugo takes about an hour to charge and I found that I got about two hours of play out of that. The remote, on the other hand, requires two AA batteries, thankfully these were included in the box.
For the first week of use, I had to refer to the user manual many times while using the toy just to be able to get it to operate the way I wanted it to. The Lelo Hugo is such an advanced device that it comes with a steep learning curve. While using the manual and also attempting to get off isn’t ideal, it was a small price to pay for the orgasms it gave me.
The remote is equipped with a feature called SenseMotion and it pairs up quickly with the device. It is easy to control the toy by flicking and tilting the remote, rather than using the buttons. It took a little bit of time to figure out how to tilt and flick the remote to get the toy to my liking, but, as I said, it was totally worth it. Another cool feature is that the remote vibrates in time with the Lelo Hugo so that if someone else is using the remote they can feel what the wearer is feeling.
After I got the hang of the SenseMotion controls, I turned it off and used the buttons. I prefer the buttons because the SenseMotion can be a bit too finicky for my liking. There are three buttons, one to increase the vibrations, one to decrease the vibrations, and another to cycle through the patterns. The button that increases the vibrations and the button on the actual Hugo turn the device and remote on and off.
Speaking of patterns, there are twelve vibration intensities and six different patterns. The patterns include a wave, a fast pulsating, a slow pulsating, and a random mode. The intensity of all the patterns was able to be increased or decreased to my liking. Other things to note are that the silicone and ABS plastic the device and remote are created with is 100% body-safe and both can be sterilized with a 10% bleach solution. The insertable arm is 3.5-inch, with a girth just over 4 inches. The size, material, and ease of use (after you master SenseMotion) make the Lelo Hugo Luxury Prostate Massager friendly for any experience level, if not a little too girthy for those new to anal play.
How Well Does It Tug?
While anal play may be becoming more mainstream, naming Hugo after a man was risky on Lelo’s part because it has the potential to put off some men who are still insecure about exploring their bodies. Before I used the Lelo Hugo, I took some time to warm myself up with smaller toys and a ton of lubricant. Lube is incredibly important and should not be skipped with any anal toys.
The head of the toy reached my prostate with not issues and curved flawlessly to apply pressure directly where I want it. The vibrations, even on low, are strong enough to be felt throughout the entire toy. On high, the vibrations from the Hugo can be felt in my toes and provides me with intense orgasms as I’ve never had before.
The design makes it easy for Hugo to stay in place and after it’s in place there is no reason for me to touch it again. I’m free to explore the vibrations and patterns via the remote or to tug while I enjoy the Hugo and work up to a dual orgasm.
That’s not even mentioning the way that that perineum arm presses against my taint and tickles my testicles in a delightful manner. Pair the vibrations from both arms, the hands-free experience, and the perfect curve of the internal arm pushing the head of the Hugo against my prostate, and I have a recipe for a luxurious, pleasurable anal toy. I have found that laying on my back, with my legs flat and together push the head of the Hugo deeper into my prostate and gives me stronger orgasms.
Cleaning is incredibly easy, considering the material that the Lelo Hugo is made of. I usually use unscented soap that doesn’t have any dyes in it and warm water. I wash my toys after every use, and if they are magnets for lint, I’ll wash them before use as well. If the toy needs to be sterilized for whatever reason (sharing it with a partner, fell into something unsightly, etc) then it can be cleaned with a 10% bleach wipe and then washed as normal. If you’re looking for a heavy-duty alternative for washing sex-toys, check out Fleshlight’s highly-coveted Product Care Kit for thoroughly cleaning and making your male sex-toys feeling brand new after every use.
A quick note, I’ve noticed a lot of folks saying not to use any silicone lubricant with silicone toys, but that’s untrue if the toy is true silicone, as the Hugo is. If you have a silicone sex toy that you’d like to use silicone lubricant or a silicone hybrid on simply do a spot test on the base of the toy. If the toy is really silicone it won’t bond with silicone lube. Check out Fleshlight’s selection of Male Lubricant for a huge selection of lubricants meant especially for male sex-toys.
As you can probably tell, I’m a huge fan of the Lelo Hugo. Albeit having the name of a man, it has the perfect curves, powerful as hell vibrations, and a remote that is easy to use after my week of figuring out every little thing about it. The medium size makes the Hugo perfect for most users, although beginners to anal play may want to take their time.
I love that I can use it in the shower, and the body-safe, nonporous material is a huge bonus in my books. I also really enjoy that it is USB rechargeable. While I didn’t like the SenseMotion option, I did enjoy the fact that the control gave me feedback as to what was going on with the actual toy.
While I do love the Lelo Hugo, nothing is without fault. The first fault is that not everyone will be able to afford this toy, it has a whopping price tag of $220, it may sound intimidating, but if you’re trying out prostate toys for the first time why not start with the very best the market has to offer!? For that price, I’d honestly expect to not have to pour any more money into this prostate massager, but I’ve already had to replace the double-A batteries in the remote and the Lelo website recommends that I only clean it with their spray – to be honest, I still just clean it my usual way.
With all that being said, the pros definitely outweigh the cons for me. The Lelo Hugo is the perfect toy for when I want a powerful prostate orgasm without much work on my part. It’s perfect for wearing out and about (on a low setting so others can’t hear it buzzing) or for a lazy day around the house. But the Lelo Hugo is best put to use when I use it with my partner during intercourse. It has become a staple in my sex life.
