Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator and UPRIZE Strap-On Harness Review

Nowadays it’s extremely rare that I see a sex toy I’m genuinely excited about, but ever since I saw the first online mentions of the Lovehoney UPRIZE range I knew I needed one of these self-erecting dildos in my life. Testament to this was my immediate and enthusiastic yes please response when Lovehoney offered me their Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator (8 inches, in Black) to review. Not only was I lucky enough to be offered the UPRIZE Dildo, Lovehoney also kindly sent me the Lovehoney UPRIZE Strap-On Harness too.

The Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator

The Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator has been billed as the world’s first bionic dildo. It’s a self-erecting dildo, which is why it first caught my interest – hard to not be enthralled by a dildo which can go from flaccid to erect simply at the touch of a button! This is thanks to Lovehoney’s “Auto-Erect” technology; mechanics they’ve engineered within the toy to enable the shaft to erect then return to a ‘down’ state as the user desires.

Packaging

My Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator arrived discreetly packaged for the post as usual, from Lovehoney, and the toy itself comes in an impressive, sizeable branded box as you can see in the photos. The outer sleeve is easily removed to reveal the black lidded box, inside which you find the main product under some protective moulded plastic and nestled into dark grey foam.

Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator and UPRIZE Strap-On Harness Review

Inside the box I received the Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator, remote control, charging lead and multi-language instruction manual.

Size & First Impressions

When fully erect – and I like that it goes beyond 180 degrees slightly, it looks more like a real penis that way – the insertable length is indeed 8 inches. The shaft’s maximum circumference is 5.5 inches (around the frenulum) with the majority of the shaft boasting a girth of 5 inches.

When I first played with the Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator, it was simply to create an erection and de-erect it again several times. Fun for hours! I was surprised at how noisy the erection feature is, but it doesn’t bother me too much. It makes me laugh to be honest; it’s like a muted screech, and I like to imagine it’s coming from behind a tightly-fastened ball gag. Perhaps that’s just a me thing.

The mechanics are cleverly housed inside the balls area at the base of the impressive shaft, and underneath this you’ll find the slightly concave, circular silicone pad which doubles as a suction cup and makes the Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator O-ring strap-on harness compatible.

Operation

On the size of the ball sack/mechanical housing area you’ll find two buttons. One of the buttons is to erect or de-erect (Deflate? Enlimpen? Flaccify?) the shaft, the other is to operate the whopping 10 modes of vibration. The vibrations button is also the on and off switch, plus it’s used to sync the Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator with the remote control.

Press this power button once and both buttons light up and flash, letting you know that you can use the remote control now if you wish. Press it again and you’re using the power button to control the UPRIZE vibrations by that button on the unit itself. Press and hold at any time to switch the dildo off.

Remote Control

The remote control is a comfortable oval shape and well sized to fit in your hand. There’s three buttons on the remote; + and – to increase or decrease the vibration strength, plus a central O button to erect or de-erect the Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator.

The remote is battery-powered, taking one CR2032 cell battery which is happily included. You’ll need to slide the back off the remote before you get started, to remove the protective tab, then replace the cover.

Charging Up

As the Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator is clearly a luxury, top of the range sex toy, it’s rechargeable.

The included wire is jackpin style to USB, with the jackpin fitting into the hole made for it on the base of the ‘balls’ part of the dildo and the other end suitable for any USB port or USB to mains adaptor (not included, but I find my multi USB to mains extremely useful). While charging, the buttons on the Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator light up – creating a hilarious ‘face’ effect when the dildo isn’t erect!

Material

Covered with extremely velvety soft silicone, the Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator (and remote control) is one of the most tactile sex toys I’ve owned. The combination of having the Power Of Erections at the touch of a button, plus vibrations, in an impressively sizeable and girthy dildo made with touchably smooth silicone finished with a suction cup/harness compatible base, is an absolute delight.

Lovehoney UPRIZE Strap-On Harness

An optional accessory for the Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator, the Lovehoney UPRIZE Strap-On Harness (Universal Size) comes in a smaller, UPRIZE branded box which is also well presented and tells you what you need to know. There’s plenty of information on the back about how to fit your UPRIZE Dildo into the O ring of the Lovehoney UPRIZE Strap-On Harness, as well as how to fit the harness around your legs and waist for a secure, comfortable fit.

Packaging

The Lovehoney UPRIZE Strap-On Harness is contained in a transparent plastic bag within the box, and I found it easy to figure out the leg loops from the waist loop before stepping into it all. Once pulled up my legs to my hips area, the leg straps sit on the underside of each buttock, while the waist strap keeps the front pad (which is cutely branded with the UPRIZE logo) flush against my vulva.

The straps are easily adjustable using the slide buckles on each part (to the sides), then you can simply tuck in the excess strapping until you’re comfortable and ready for action.

Fitting the UPRIZE Dildo Vibrator

Instead of having to unfasten the popper straps around the O ring in order to insert the Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator, then refasten, instead you simply fold the circular base of the dildo into the O ring while it’s still fastened on to the strap on pad.

At that point you may wish to adjust the strap on harness straps so the pad really is totally flush against you, so that the dildo is as secure as possible in its O ring holder.

My Experiences With The Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator & Harness

I’ve known for years that I’m a power queen, but I didn’t think I was a size queen… That said, something still drew me to the larger dildo from the Lovehoney UPRIZE range. Turns out, 8 inches of mechanised, erectable, silicone covered dildo –with a 5-inch girth to boot- is a LOT of dildo to envelop.

I love it. I can’t take every single inch, but I love that there’s more than enough for me to enjoy. Even as a static dildo, the Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator is alluring as a sexually penetrative pleasure tool, with its rippled shaft and phallic style tip. The balls at the base promise frenzied, slaptastic sessions of ecstasy. Add in the bionic, self-erecting element, plus the strap-on sex potential, and the Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator is a complete winner for me.

Despite my regular avoidance of sex toys which seem too techy and complex (you know the type; you need to pore over the instruction manual for a week before attempting to use the thing in some sort of weird, bedroom-based examination setting), I didn’t have any issues with the world’s first bionic dildo. After realising that it’s possible to leave the UPRIZE Dildo switched on after the first few uses – spotting the buttons still lit up at the side and rushing it on to charge in case it was almost dead when I came to use it next – I’ve trained myself to check it’s properly off.

With such a novel, attention-grabbing feature as ‘erections at the touch of a button’, you might think that less thought has been given to the vibrating element. Not so. Although I don’t use every one of the ten vibrating settings on offer with the Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator, the most powerful constant vibration is powerful enough to bring me to a clitoral orgasm when I rest the tip of the dildo against myself. Which is saying something for a mains-powered wand fan.

It’s fantastic that a remote control is included, and this isn’t too difficult to figure out or remember how to use, either. 3 simple buttons to increase/decrease vibration, erect or de-erect the dildo, and turn off or on. The remote syncs to the dildo as it’s supposed to, each time, and it’s lightweight and comfortable to use.

I wish it were possible to use the erection function while the Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator is inside me, but I understand why the instructions caution not to erect it while its being enjoyed internally. The mechanics must need to move unhindered by the natural clenching nature of either a vagina or anal area, otherwise you risk damaging the dildo. The Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator is a fun (if sizable) packer when worn with the Lovehoney UPRIZE Strap-On Harness, as you can pop it underneath a flared skirt (or wear boldly outside your jeans!) while the dildo is ‘down’, then erect it at the touch of a button to give someone a pleasant surprise.

The 8-inch Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator feels quite heavy when in the Lovehoney UPRIZE Strap-On Harness, but despite that it hasn’t fallen out yet even while I’ve walked about wearing it and waving it around a bit. During strap-on sex the dildo is obviously anchored while in your partner, and there’s no risk of it disappearing into them even in the event it did slip from the O-ring. Even if there wasn’t an entire 8 inches to ‘lose’, the UPRIZE Dildo is finished with a large ‘balls’ area forming a handy flared base before the suction cup/strap-on harness compatible disc on the bottom.

Speaking of suction, the suction cup on the Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator isn’t the most amazing suction cup on a sex toy I’ve ever seen… it sticks for a little while but during use (say, on the side of the bath) it does come unstuck each time. I think the base needs to be firmer and more concave in order to form a reliable suction cup base; right now it feels like a convenient coincidence that the base gives a little suction as well as providing harness compatibility.

Happily, the Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator is fully waterproof. The remote control is not waterproof, however, so leave that in the bedroom if you’re UPRIZE-ing in the bath or shower. The Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator works particularly well when you coat it with water based lubricant first – this avoids any risk of unpleasant chafing from the silicone material.

I’ve enjoyed several breath-taking, leg-wobbling, spine-tingling, sheet-clenching orgasms with the Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator and I absolutely love the fact there’s a strap-on harness accessory too. You can use the UPRIZE Dildo in so many ways – alone, with a partner, vaginally, anally, packing, waving around at a strap-on sex party, to fulfil your erections at the touch of a button fantasies – that I feel it’s worth every penny of the price.

Summary

Innovative and revolutionary must be the two most overused words in the sex toy industry, but sometimes, a toy comes along which is certainly different to everything else up to that point. Sure, the Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator is a silicone-covered, vibrating phallus, which is certainly nothing new. But being able to produce an erection – and remove it again – at the touch of a button makes it extraordinarily special.

There are luxurious features too, such summas a choice of 10 vibrating settings, a suction-cup base which doubles as strap-on harness compatibility –with the branded UPRIZE Strap-On Harness available separately- and the UPRIZE Dildo is fully waterproof. It’s also controllable via wireless remote control, which not only keeps the pleasure and passion hassle-free, but ensures you can magically produce an erection, no matter who you are, in a matter of seconds.

Lovehoney UPRIZE Self-Erecting Bionic Dildo Vibrator and UPRIZE Strap-On Harness Review

The only downsides for me, are the fact that it makes an extraordinary noise when erecting (it makes me giggle), the remote control isn’t waterproof, the suction cup isn’t the best suction cup I’ve ever tried, and this isn’t the cheapest sex toy out there. But then, noting all the above features and the touch-button erection novelty, I wouldn’t expect it to be.
