Give Yourself Some Love with Hugs

This vibe was wonderful. While more experienced users may want more than what this can do, this is a great choice for a beginner with moderate, quiet, vibrations and a sleek feel good shape.
Strong and quiet, great for beginners
Might slip out easily, small area to grip

useful review


The Hugs vibe is one of my favorites. It's long lasting, smooth and strong. It works wonderfully for clitoral stimulation, and the rounded head and tapered neck feel amazing for penetration. On the lower vibration settings, you can tease other areas of your body, and the velvet cote material feels smooth against your skin as you tease and please. With my experience, it's always good for multiple orgasms. Due to its simple function and tame size, this would be good for a beginner.

You can use it alone or with a partner. It would pair up well with a standard dildo, if you needed more for penetration. You can work your clitoris with this, while your partner penetrates your vagina, use this with a g-spot vibe, or even use it with a partner for double penetration. If you're feeling particularly kinky, you could let your partner have their way with you while you're blindfolded. My favorite!

Material / Texture

Hugs is made of velvet cote material, which is surprisingly smooth and velvety to the touch. There was a light odor when I first took it out of the box, but it wasn't very noticeable and disappeared after cleaning/using it for the first time.

The texture doesn't add any stimulation, but feels nice against the skin. Lubed or not, it will glide against your skin easily.

The material is nonporous, making it very safe to use and very easy to clean.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

While shopping for my first vibrator, I was easily intimidated by all the options. Was this too big, what does this do? I chose to keep it simple, and I don't regret that decision one bit. While the simple design lacks all the bells and whistles other toys may have, this gets the job done very nicely.

The size is nice, but not very big, not very thick; perfect for a beginner.

The sleek shape is comfortable, and the tapered head gives every thrust some extra "oomph".

The battery case easily opens and tightens, and the toy works great in water.

To change the speeds, it's a one touch button, so you can easily control everything without having to slow down.

I only have a slight issue with the cover/cap. I wish it was a bit longer so I could get a better grip for when I get really wet. Other than that, everything is great.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrations from this toy come from the rounded tip, which has 3 simple functions: low, medium, and high. All three settings are pretty quiet, even though the vibrations themselves pack a punch. For me, the low is good for an initial tease, and medium is more than enough to get me off a few times. I don't use the high setting that often, but it's strong without being overwhelming.

The controls are simple: just press the little heart button to give yourself some love. The button is located right on the bottom of the vibrator, making it very easy to control even if you use it vaginally.

It is perfectly waterproof, and the material doesn't get too slippery when it’s wet.

I use it more or less every day and the batteries still lasted a good 3 months or so before I needed to change them.
    • Easy to use
    • Long lasting power
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

This vibe is very easy to take care of. While you can't boil it to sterilize, you can easily clean it with a bit of soap and warm water. Just pat it dry and you are good to go! Isopropyl alcohol can also be used to clean it off. I recommend using silicone or water based lubricants with this toy.

Due to its small size and simple shape, storage isn't a problem either. You can use the box it came in if you wish. I either keep it in a 'Hide Your Vibe' zipper pillow, or wrapped in a cloth hidden in a dresser drawer.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The toy comes packaged in a plastic box with some helpful instructions if you need them.
    • Good for storage
    • Minimal
    • Recyclable

Personal comments

I've had this toy for YEARS and every time I use it, it feels just as good as the first.


I couldn't wait to try this out when I first received it! I cleaned it beforehand just to be safe, popped in some batteries and got going. I turned it on low to tease my lips and thighs, and was amazed at how smooth the material felt against my skin. It felt great stimulating my clit, and I quickly climaxed when I turned it up to medium.

When I put it inside, wow! Because of the design’s tapered neck, every thrust felt pretty amazing. I usually don't get off much from penetration and feeling that was pretty great for me.
Follow-up commentary
It's still just as awesome as the first time. Everything works fine; no issues anywhere. I often crave for something more since I'm so used to this although this this one remains my favorite.
