Lovehoney Lifelike Lover Luxe 5.5 Inch Dildo Review

Put the most stunningly gorgeous fantasy cock in front of me and my eyes will get seriously turned on. But, to arouse the parts of me that really matter, nothing works better than a realistic dong. Nothing compliments my fantasies in the way a lifelike dildo can. One such as the Lovehoney Lifelike Lover Luxe 5.5 Inch Dildo. Always erect and ready for me to pounce on. Which I do. Often.

Packaging

It isn’t a pricey sex toy and as such, the packaging is simplistic and functional. A cardboard box does the job nicely and doesn’t leave me adding yet another luxury box to an ever-growing stack of ‘utterly useless but too pretty to throw away’ packaging.

Design

The Lifelike Lover Luxe is 6.5 inches of real looking cockage. A yummy 5.5 inches of which can be inserted in any of my holes and thrust until I reach orgasm. It is budget-friendly, body safe, and made of a silky soft silicone. Who doesn’t love a budget-friendly and body safe combo? This one doesn’t even collect lint like some of the less thoughtful insertable silicone objects I own.

Whilst it is made in a realistic style, it is somewhat simplistic. The shape and the texture are there, but the entire toy is made using the same shade of silicone. I actually prefer this to hyperrealism in my dildos, but that’s really a matter of personal preference. What the Lifelike Lover Luxe does have in regards to realism is a foreskinless bulging head with a urethral dent, excessive amounts of veins adding texture to the fucking fun, the urethra and frenulum and, at the base, an unnaturally firm scrotum.

‘But, what about girth?’ I hear you ask. Well, the Lovehoney 5.5 inch Lifelike Lover has a petite 4 inch circumference. This is the girth I would recommend to a sex toy beginner. But as a, very obviously, sex toy nut, I find this to be just the right amount of thickness for a good comfortable thrusting. Does it stretch and fill me? Not in the slightest.

Firmness

The Lifelike Lover Luxe definitely warrants a separate category for ‘firmness’. In my opinion, this is what takes this dildo’s potential and chucks it into the nearest drain. There is nothing realistic about the hard, unforgiving core of this thing. Externally, there is flexibility and a slight squidge ability. But, inside the toy is just too damn firm. It’s harsh. And my vagina doesn’t like harsh when it’s fucking realistic cocks. It fucks realistic cocks because it likes the squishy goodness of actual penises. And this dildo doesn’t provide that. At all.

The firmness of this toy just doesn’t work for me. I’ve been spoiled with the joys of dual density silicone. Does that mean it wouldn’t work for you? Not at all. If you use dildos and find yourself wishing they were just a bit more solid, you’d definitely find that with this Lovehoney Lifelike Lover.

Suction Cup

What’s not to love about a suction cup. I can suction my dongs to the floor, to the walls, to the doors, to random upturned objects. I seriously love to ride a suctioned insertable. And for this to be entirely effective, it’s got to have a decent amount of stick. The Lifelike Lover Luxe dildo doesn’t have the best suction cup I’ve experienced, but it hasn’t let me down yet. I ride, I grind and I wriggle, but this silicone penetrator stays firmly in its place.

Not only is it functional when I want to play cowgirl, it also improves the experience when I’m on my back with my legs in the air (or, any other position not involving suctioning of objects). The suction cup and the balls give me something to grab onto when I’m making the masturbatory music of rigorous sex toy movement. Also known as, fucking myself hard.

Play Time

The first time I went to use this lifelike dong, just looking at its realism got me sufficiently worked up. I was excited. I’ve wanted a more realistically sized penis looking insertable for a long time and I finally had one in my ready to thrust hands. Lubed up, suctioned to the floor and with my favourite clit vibe already working its magic, I descended onto my new pleasure stick.

It took about 0.5 seconds for me to realise this wasn’t comparable to the higher priced silicone cocks. The texture of the veins was too harsh, even when lathered up with copious amounts of the slippery goodness that is lube. The core was too firm. It took my realistic cock fantasy and forcefully reminded me that what was inside me was, in fact, very much not an actual dick.

I still find myself reaching for the too firm structure that is the Lovehoney Lifelike Lover, more than most other luxury dildos. And all for the simple fact that I love its size. In general, there is absolutely nothing realistic about the gigantic lifelike silicocks that dominate the sex toy market. And despite my complaints, riding this dong certainly doesn’t stop me in my orgasm tracks. It brushes against my g spot, it fills me just enough and thrusts harshly but effectively. In fact, the last time I used it I had not one, not two, but three consecutive orgasms.

Conclusion

There is no denying the fact that the Lovehoney Lifelike Lover Luxe 5.5 inch dildo could be better. But, for a budget-friendly and body safe, realistic dildo it’s really not too bad. If you can afford better, get better. But as it is, it’s a cock worth fucking. I only wish it had the soft squidge of a real cock, to give it a realistic sensation as well as appearance.
