About the Product

Hugo is a remote-controlled prostate massager that sets a new standard in p-spot stimulation. This mighty and powerful massager is available in black, ocean blue, and deep rose. With two powerful motors located in the tip and base, you’re sure to have a very intense hands-free orgasm. Hugo’s exterior is made of premium body-safe silicone and has an accented base of gold colored ABS plastic. The diameter is approximately 1.3 inches with an insertable length of 3.4 inches. Charging is very easy as there is a silicone cover over the charging port. Simply plug the charger in, let it charge for 2 hours and you’ll be good to go. Once charged, you’ll typically get about 2 hours of play time. The remote control is fairly small and easy to hold in the palm of your hand and is truly an added bonus. Included with the Hugo is a wireless remote controller, USB charging cord, satin storage pouch, warranty registration card, detailed instruction manual, two AAA batteries for the remote, and a special key to open the remote.

How it works

The main part that inserts into the butt has a motor near the tip designed to stimulate the prostate. The second motor is located in the base which provides stimulation to the perineum. Each motor can be powered together or separately. There are 6 modes of regular vibrations and 2 SenseMotion modes that provide a variety of different pleasures. You can use Hugo with, or without, the remote. Without the remote, simply press the power button located on the base of the toy. To change modes, you have to press the power button again. This can be somewhat difficult so we definitely recommend using the remote. The remote itself has three buttons. The (+) button increases the intensity while the (-) button decreases it. Located in the middle of these 2 buttons is a third button that allows you to change modes. The middle button also allows you to switch to the SenseMotion. The SenseMotion modes allow for the intensity to become more, or less, depending on how the remote is tilted. When the remote is lying nearly flat, the intensity is very low. When tilted near a 90 degree angle, the speed is very intense. Before playing with this toy, we strongly encourage reading the instruction manual.

Our Experience

Liam Says: I was a bit intimidated upon seeing the Hugo for the first time. It seemed a bit large to begin with. For this reason, Robin and I started off with a little warm up to my backside before inserting Hugo. The first time we used it, Robin had me on the Love Altar (our massage table) and allowed me to have control of the remote. We thought it would be wise for me to have control of the various vibrations to get used to the toy. As always, I definitely recommend a copious amount of lube prior to inserting anything in your backdoor. Once it was inserted, I immediately felt the fullness of the toy. Upon turning Hugo on, I felt strong vibrations to both my p-spot and perineum. While I was becoming familiar with its various modes, Robin continued to give me a full body massage to keep me relaxed. I can say that Hugo is capable of providing an intense orgasm, which it certainly did the first time I tried it. I’ve never used the toy for solo play as I really love having Robin involved. With that said, every subsequent time we used Hugo, the remote control was in Robin’s hand. I’ll let Robin take over and tell you more about it.

Robins Says: The Hugo is absolutely amazing! I love when Liam hands the remote to me. It’s exciting being in control of his pleasure and he loves it too. I really like the various modes and have been through all of them. Each mode is so different and I can tell when they change just by watching Liam’s body movements. Every single time we use Hugo, Liam has a very intense orgasm. The first time I was given control, I made sure he would be more than satisfied. With Liam up on the Love Altar, I took the time to caress his body with one hand while holding the remote in the other. With only the touch of my hand, along with controlling the intensity, I was able to make him cum in under 10 minutes! What I like about the remote is that it vibrates too! The second time we used Hugo, I had some fun of my own. After turning Hugo on and putting it on Liam’s favorite setting, I pressed the remote against my clit. With him lying on the massage table, I began stroking his penis with my free hand. Within minutes, he came and so did I. It was so hot! We also use Hugo during intercourse which is really, I mean, REALLY hot! No matter what position we try, Liam cums very hard and it seems that his orgasms are more intense and last a lot longer. With Hugo inserted, it also proves to be a benefit for me as there have been times when he stays hard after ejaculating allowing us to continue directly onto round # 2.

Recommended Use

Hugo is designed solely for prostate massage. One thing we’ve noticed, according to LELO, Hugo is “Perfect for your first time.” Due to the size of Hugo, we think that a first-timer to prostate stimulation may want to try something a bit smaller with less intensity. If you are experienced with prostate stimulation, and love larger toys with a lot of girth, this may not be the right fit. As with any toy, always be sure to thoroughly clean them before and after each use.

Likes & Dislikes

Of course, with all toys, there always seems to be some pros and cons. We’ve listed some of ours below.

Things we like:

  • Powerful dual motors
  • Versatile and responsive remote control
  • Smooth, body-safe silicon
  • 100% waterproof
  • Great for solo play and couples play
  • Can be worn during intercourse

Things we dislike:

  • Difficulty changing modes/functions with remote (memorize the instructions)


LELO has really outdone themselves with the Hugo. We are truly impressed with its capabilities. Not only does Hugo massage the prostate from inside, it also holds firmly against the perineum which massages the prostate from the exterior as well. For us, it added a whole new level of bedroom fun. If you are interested in purchasing Hugo, please click here. We understand that Hugo can be a bit pricey. To save money, LELO has also designed Bruno which is similar to Hugo but it does not come with the remote and is more affordable.
