Toy Review: The Lovehoney Desire Luxury USB Rechargeable Vibrating Cock Ring

Vibrating cock rings are a great way to enhance sexual intercourse…that is when they work, at least. While straightforward in theory, a lot goes behind an effective cock ring in practice and it can be hard to get them just right.

While I wouldn’t say that the Lovehoney Desire Luxury USB Rechargeable Vibrating Cock Ring is a perfect cock ring it is a good example of how to do things well. Lovehoney have certainly managed to impress me with this product, but it’s not something that I would necessarily orgasm with, well, unless I use it on my clitoris.

Find out why below.

The Lovehoney Desire Luxury USB Rechargeable Vibrating Cock Ring

The Lovehoney Desire Luxury USB Rechargeable Vibrating Cock Ring is part of Lovehoney’s new Desire range and comes with all of the luxury trimmings. One of my favourite luxury perks being a sturdy storage case with the Lovehoney logo on the top. What makes this case fantastic (as I mentioned in my Desire G-Spot Vibrator review) is that is has a small hole in it that allows the charger to come through, this means you can charge your Desire Vibrating Cock Ring discreetly.

In terms of design, the Desire Vibrating Cock Ring definitely stands out. It kind of looks like a pebble shaped clitoral vibrator but with a section hollowed out to accommodate a shaft, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The clitoral section of the cock ring has three raised lines across it, helping to aid in stimulation, while the cock ring itself has a suitable amount of give without being too stretchy.

The silicone used for the Desire Vibrating Cock Ring is excellent. Soft, smooth and silky it gets a 5 star rating from me. It also means that this cock ring is totally body-safe, which already puts it miles ahead of most other cock rings on the market. The Desire Vibrating Cock Ring is also fully submersible and USB rechargeable, making it a very convenient sex toy.

The controls for the Desire Vibrating Cock Ring are on either side of the clitoral section which works well in terms of placement. It allows the user to easily switch through the 12 vibration intensities and 8 patterns without much hassle. The vibrations from the Desire Vibrating Cock Ring are best described as buzzy but substantial. They’re certainly not rumbly, in any sense of the word, but they’re definitely not lacking in power either. I’m a power queen through-and-through and I consider the Desire Vibrating Cock Ring to be satisfying. They’re also deep enough to spread out from the point of placement, which adds to their effectiveness.

The pebble shape of this cock ring makes it look like a cock ring/clitoral vibrator hybrid.

It is because of the Desire Vibrating Cock Ring’s power that I also think that it makes an excellent clitoral vibrator. The cock ring section also works well as a handle when using it this way. Through this method I can definitely orgasm with the Desire Vibrating Cock Ring, however an orgasm isn’t my goal when using it as a cock ring and here’s why.

When using a vibrating cock ring it’s very important to know what you’re getting yourself in for. Because thrusting is a big part of sex, vibrating cock rings never product continual stimulation. On the contrary, they’ll often be interrupted with the rhythmic motions of sex that we all know and love. Because of that vibrating cock rings don’t always seal the orgasm deal for people who need continual vibrations to climax.

I am certainly one of those people and, as such, a vibrating cock ring can titillate me but it doesn’t bring me to orgasm. However, this certainly isn’t a bad thing and it doesn’t mean that the Desire Vibrating Cock Ring didn’t work for me. In actuality I typically enjoy using vibrating cock rings but with realistic expectations about the outcome, and the Desire Vibrating Cock Ring managed to come in at the higher range of my expectations. True to form, the Desire Vibrating Cock Ring was strong, substantial and very arousing during use. I was initially worried that its top-heavy design would cause it to slide during use but this wasn’t the case. The cock ring kept it firmly in place the whole time and I’m very grateful for that.

Cock rings can be a fantastic tool when used effectively and with an understanding of their function.

Mr. Peaches was also noticeably harder and firmer when using this cock ring, the result of which was more prominent G-Spot sensations for me.

So, were there any downsides to this cock ring? I personally struggled to think of any.

I suppose my biggest gripe would be that, in an all-purple line of toys this is the only black one and it happens to be the one that is catered more to male-use. Considering it’s the only product in the line with a different colouration this sticks out like a sore thumb and I wish that weren’t the case. Would it really be so bad to have a purple cock ring?

It also can’t be used as a cock and ball ring as the silicone doesn’t have that much give, but it was never really made for this purpose anyway.

Other than those two nit-picks this toy pretty much ticks all of the boxes that you’d want it to. A rather rare occurrence.

Final Thoughts

Overall I was impressed with the Desire Vibrating Cock Ring’s performance and think it’s one of the better cock rings on the market. Obviously, if you’re a fan of rumbly or continual vibrations then this cock ring could be problematic, but otherwise it really does do exactly what you’d hope it would.

I had an absolute blast testing it and I can see Mr. Peaches and I using it when we fancy adding a bit of buzz to his thrust.

Now that’s a desirable thought.

Recommend to:

People who like deep, strong, buzzy vibrations.

People who like rhythmic vibrations.

People who want a cock ring/clitoral vibe combo.

Do Not Recommend to:

People who prefer rumbly vibrations.

People who need constant vibrations.

People who want a cock and ball ring (it’s not that stretchy).
