Remote Control

While the remote is easy to use, getting set up with it can be a little tricky. You’ll need two AAA batteries and the plastic key for opening the compartment.

Once this is accomplished, you can look forward to using a device that has very good battery life.

Better yet, there are AAAs included. These definitely aren’t uncommon batteries, and you like to have some lying around. Nonetheless, it’s nice to know they’re looking out for you.

I’m not too impressed with the remote’s feel, with its mix of high-grade silicone and low-grade plastic. That said, it certainly has an attractive look.

After the remote is all set up, you won’t need much help with pairing it to the device. You can choose different types of vibrating and levels of intensity.

Try not to go too 'haywire' too soon. Your prostate can only take so much at one time.


The remote and the Hugo can work with each other through “SenseMotion.” There are two different modes you can choose from, using the remote.

With Mode 1, you can tilt the remote at different angles depending on how much strength you desire. The more vertical it is, the more intense it’ll be.

Mode 2 works with shaking the remote. If you want something fairly calm, give it some casual waves, and if you want something you’ll really feel, shake it with all the power you can summon.

These settings are an excellent display of how much creativity can happen with something as commonplace as a remote. Just make sure you’re not shaking the remote or holding it straight up before you really know what you’re dealing with.

Every experience should involve starting from the most straightforward setting and slowly proceeding to the ultimate level.

You can get plenty of pleasure from going slowly because your prostate has probably never had any sort of stimulation, let alone massage.

Shaking your remote might feel a little funny at first, and you also have to look out for the natural hand exhaustion that can happen.

However, when you’re really feeling how good the vibrations are, you won’t care about anything else.

As a nice bonus, you can get a lot more arm strength out of consistent usage.


There’s a pair of motors inside the Lelo Hugo. One works on your prostate while the other works on your perineum.

You can bring pleasure to two areas that you didn’t know were absolutely desiring it, at the exact same time.

These are qualities that definitely aren’t unique to the Hugo when it comes to prostate massagers, but it’s terrific to know they’re here.

You have six different vibration settings to choose from, and all of them are quality. You can change the vibration intensity with arrows on the remote.

You have lots of vibration settings to choose from, and there could be a magic one that you find by pure chance.

Some of these modes are more irregular than others. You can find out which ones are best for you based on whether you want to be surprised or enjoy a more constant feeling.

Maybe you’re somebody who plain likes both? The remote is better in terms of sensations, but there will definitely be times when you don’t want to bother with it.


A prostate massager needs to be big enough to fit inside you comfortably, but not so big that it hurts. The Lelo Hugo has a precise fit that should appeal to both anal play newbies and veterans.

Some of the previous Lelo products have been a little off when it comes to sizing. Whoever they had in charge of design this time around deserves a promotion.

It would’ve been fine if it was only staying in about 90 percent of the time, but the Lelo Hugo has been far more reliable than that. I only had a hard time keeping it in when I was first getting used to it.

My asshole would reflexively clench up and eject the device. I eventually had to get used to the feeling and put my mind at ease.

Thankfully, I was able to accomplish both and keep it inside as a result.

Equating a massive size with a positive prostate massaging experiencing is illogical thinking that many guys, including yours truly, have had to overcome.

Lots of women will tell you they don’t like the pain that comes from feeling an extraordinarily large penis inside them.

There’s also more to using your prostate massager than just sticking it inside your ass. It needs to be positioned correctly, as do you.

Consult the instructions for the right way to position it with regard to the arms. It’s also a lot easier when you’re in the right position, such as lying on your back with your legs out of the way.

The silicone material of the Lelo Hugo helps make it a quality product, aside from its prominent technological features. This material is also very comfortable.

We’d say that anything that makes getting inside your ass and navigating to the prostate easier is something worth celebrating.

My Experience With Hugo

I’ve owned more than one prostate massager in my lifetime, but I can say that I like the Lelo Hugo a lot.

I didn’t really know what to think of the remote, figuring it would just be a distraction that wouldn’t work very well.

I was surprised by many things, but the biggest was that the remote ended up being my favorite part of the experience.

On the days when I’m just not feeling like using the remote or I can’t summon the motivation to pick up batteries, I’m still happy to use the device as-is.

Self-gratification isn’t just about what you feel in the penis area. The Lelo Hugo also gives you a whole lot of excitement through your limbs and the rest of your body.

You don’t need to be some kind of sexual wizard for those feelings to occur either. It can happen on your first few tries.

Having a prostate orgasm with your first usage is a lot more questionable, primarily if you’ve never used a massager before.

Luckily, there’s a lot of pleasure to be had by working your prostate, even if you’re not able to cum right away.

Different settings can provide mixed feelings. If you’ve ever had anal sex or have been pegged and want to get it from a toy, the pulse modes will really appeal to you.

Another great thing about the Lelo Hugo is that it doesn’t require constant moving from the user to be effective. It took mere minutes to get a handle on putting this inside me.

I knew there was something in my ass, but believe me when I say that it was nothing but a pleasure.

Being really comfortable with this device means cumming hands-free. If you didn’t know that was possible, I’m so glad to be the one to have brought you to the light.

I also wanted to give you a testimonial about the remote. Half the fun of using this is just toying around with the remote and seeing how each angle or shaking level affects the vibrations.

I generally have a lot of energy, but I don’t want to be shaking a remote when tilting is an option.

It's surprising how even a 10-degree difference in angle can result in a remarkably distinct prostate masse experience.

If you have a partner around, ask them to tilt/shake the remote while you’ve got the prostate massager inside you.

Shaking can be a little finicky. There may be times when you want something more relaxed, but your light shaking elicits no response from the device.

My preference for using the Lelo Hugo is first to get myself going with some remote tilts and maybe a shake or two. Then, I use just the device.

I’m really getting the best of all worlds this way, not to mention a great orgasm.


Your Lelo Hugo should be clean after each usage. We don’t want to remind you of where it’s been.

They have a branded cleaner, but you shouldn’t feel obligated to buy this. A pure soap and water solution can be all you need.

After you’ve made sure to really get inside the device, you need to dry it. This won’t take very long, even if you’re gotten it pretty soaked when cleaning.

While this device is waterproof, care should be taken not to get any water in the charging hole. After all, it would really suck to have a bit of water ruin your toy, right?


It’s really easy to charge your Lelo Hugo. Move the cover, put the cable in, and then plug in.

The return on charging investment is excellent too. You can have about two hours of fun for about an hour and a half of charging.

Having to keep track of AAA batteries for the remote can be a hassle, but you can help yourself by getting special, rechargeable batteries.

Also, if you’re so horny that you can’t wait for it to charge, well, there are other ways you can take care of yourself.


Companies like Lelo hold onto their customers through their quality products and excellent customer service. The year-long warranty shows they want you to trust their products.

Through their website, you can register the serial number on the warranty card. If anything goes awry before a year passes, you can get a new one with no further cost incurred.

Almost as good is the 10-year customer guarantee, which allows for half-off another Lelo device should something go wrong before a decade passes.

Final Thoughts

The Lelo Hugo is a prostate massager with a lot to love about it, from its comfortable design to its different settings and remote capabilities.

I've had it for a while, and I'm still finding things to love about it.

Do I wish the remote didn't need batteries and wasn't made of such flimsy plastic? Yes, but it's not enough for me to not love this toy.
