Lovehoney Lifelike Lover 5.5 Inch Dildo

Disembodied penises kind of freak me out, so I avoided realistic dildos for a long time. When I was offered the chance to review the Lovehoney Lifelike Lover 5.5 inch dildo, I decided it was time to face my fear. Spoiler alert: Realistic dildos are amazing!

If you are worried your postman will hand you a box with DILDOS emblazoned on it, don’t be. Lovehoney always send out products in discreet packaging. The dildo box, however, does have a picture of the dildo on it, so perhaps it’s not one to open in front of the in-laws (unless you have very open-minded ones. In which case, go ahead!).

I’m not a size queen by any stretch of the imagination but I have got used to reasonably large dildos so, when I took this out of the box, I was sceptical that it would fulfil my needs. With just 5.5 inches of insertable length and a circumference of 4 inches, it’s perfect for beginners, but sex toy newbies aren’t the only ones who can enjoy this dildo.

Most people who are into penis owners will tell you that size doesn’t matter, it’s what you do with it that counts. The same is often true for dildos. This one is roughly the average length of an erect penis, although a little less girthy1. This lack of girth forced me to change my masturbation style. Rather than banging away at my cunt like I usually do with larger toys, I took my time. Slowing down my strokes meant I felt the detailing on the dildo more. The veins added realism and the slightly pronounced head provided extra sensation. When it comes to the heads on dildos, I’m like a slutty goldilocks. Too small and I’ll be bored, too pronounced and it will get caught on my pubic bone. The Lovehoney Lifelike Lover gets it just right.

It’s made of smooth silicone, which means it is body safe and hygienic. It is easy to clean with a spritz of sex toy cleaner and warm water, although you do need to pay extra attention around the ridges. I really like that the silicone has a bit of squish to it and some flexibility. It makes it my favourite dildo to use anally for double penetration, along with my partners penis vaginally. I do like more rigid toys anally, especially glass and ceramic, but I find a bit of flexibility is much more comfortable for double penetration.

Having tried it anally and vaginally, I thought I might as well go for the full house and try it orally. I stuck it to the top of a cabinet and set about putting my mouth to work. It doesn’t really taste of much, and the narrow circumference and suction cup mean it’s useful for people who want to practice their oral skills. Be warned, the suction cup is phenomenally powerful. I lifted up the glass shelf in my bathroom while I was cleaning it!

Overall opinion

I can’t fault the Lovehoney Lifelike Lover. It’s not the most luxurious or unique dildo but it does exactly what it is supposed to and it does it well. I can’t believe I had such an aversion to realistic dildos before I tried this dildo. It’s been a complete U-turn for me. Never again will I shun a dildo for it’s flair for realism!

Positives: Reasonably priced, silicone, excellent suction cup, great detailing with the veins and head.
Negatives: Slightly difficult to clean in the grooves.
Who should buy this: People who like or want to try a slim dildo, people who like anal play, people who like realistic toys.
Who shouldn’t buy this: People who only like large toys, people looking for unrealistic toys.

Price: £19.99 from Lovehoney  (the pink and black versions are also available in the 2 for £30 offer).
Alternatives: If you like the look of the Lovehoney Lifelike Lover 5.5 inch dildo but would prefer something larger, it is also available as an 8 inch dildo with a 5.5 inch circumference (in black or pink) for £34.99. For something more girthy and playful, try the Godemiche Adam.
