Lovehoney 7 Inch Curved Silicone Dildo Review

Lovehoney’s 7″ Curved Silicone Dildo (CAUK; EU) is simple, body-safe, and affordable—and sometimes that’s all you need in a sex toy.Lovehoney 7 Inch Curved dildo white roses

This streamlined dildo gives you options: the 7″ Curved has both a suction cup (yay) and a hole for a bullet vibe, features that I think add a lot to the toy.

My partner and I explored almost all the possibilities this toy has to offer—from G-spot to prostate stim, with my butt as a stop on the way1—and we came out with one clear winner. Here’s everything we discovered about the Lovehoney 7″ Curved.

As a (Nonvibrating) G-Spotter

Let me start out by saying that I didn’t expect the 7″ Curved to fulfill my G-spotting needs; that wasn’t my primary goal in getting the dildo. (Butt play was; more on that coming up!) You see, my vagina has a taste for large and heavily textured dildos, and the 7″ Curved is none of these things. Its max. diameter is 1.5″, but that’s right above the base. The head is small, about 1.1″ diameter at the ridge.

Still, I do love the 7″ Curved’s curve. (The dildo got its name for a reason, right?) If it was straight, I wouldn’t be excited about it at all. But the dildo’s bent shaft massages my G-spot nicely. It’s like a long, expertly curved finger. In this fairly firm silicone, the 7″ Curved’s head—even though it’s smaller than I usually go for—makes an impact. I do wish that the minimal ridge on the front side of the curve was straight across or curved downward, instead of angling up. This is why I often flip the dildo backward, so that I can feel the back side’s downward-curving ridge rubbing against my all the nerve endings in the front wall of my vag.Lovehoney 7 Inch Curved Dildo Head white rose

But because I do want a little more stimulation from the 7″ Curved than just thrusting it by hand can provide, I’m glad for its bullet hole.

Vibrating, Vaginal Use

The Lovehoney 7″ Curved has a (slightly short) hole in the suction cup base that will accommodate a standard bullet vibe.2 The vibe sticks out a bit, so you have to choose between vibrating and suction-cupped use.3Lovehoney 7 Inch Curved Dildo vibrating

I use the fairly rumbly, rechargeable Screaming O Charged Vooom (also comes in a remote-controlled version) in the vibe hole.4 This pairing works out well because the vibrations are strong enough to travel through the dildo’s firm silicone really well. I like to start out with the steady settings and then work my way to using one of the patterns that matches up closely with my thrusting. My orgasms while I jerk the vibrating Lovehoney 7″ Curved dildo are quite satisfying.

As a Suction Cup Dildo

Vaginal Use

The 7″ Curved’s built-in-suction-cup base is pretty thin, but the suction is relatively strong. (It reminds me of the Blush Novelties Avant D5 in this way.) It’s not the strongest out there—not quite as strong as the standard realistic suction cup dildo. But, as long as the base isn’t wet, it holds its own on any flat surface, or even on slightly textured walls, when I use it vaginally.

Overall, this is an OK experience for me, but not an amazing one. My G-spot just likes both a large head and a curve. Since the 7″ Curved’s head is so subtle, I have a hard time not defecting to one of my many other suction-cupped choices. Your mileage may vary, of course.

Anal Use

My main goal in getting the Lovehoney 7″ Curved was to expand my Suction Cup Dildo Positions post to include anal play too. My butt’s still pretty wimpy, so I figured that the tapered size would make the 7″ Curved easy to insert.

So I lubed up thoroughly and discovered I’d been right: I was able to slide the 7″ Curved’s rounded head with no problem. It has a great shape this way: not too pointy (which is an ouch for most sphincters). As I’d hoped, the taper lets my rectum adjust to the size gradually. But…then there’s that curve that my vag thinks is so great. My butt is a little confused by how extreme the angle gets midshaft.

Also, I found the suction cup didn’t work quite as well anally, maybe because I went a little overboard on the lube in my several testing sessions, so that the base got slick. Some resticking was necessary for most positions.

Riding the 7″ Curved on a bathtub ledge or on a wall isn’t painful for me, but it’s not 100% comfortable either. Initially I had the curve facing forward, toward my vag, but it was just too much when I had the dildo stuck on that wall. So I flipped it backward, which was better. Part of my problem is that the dildo is too long for me personally: the over 6″ insertable length, longer than the average penis, isn’t good to sit on unless you have some experience with depth exploration. For me, it was a stretch.

Still, I thought that maybe I wasn’t into that curve because I don’t have a prostate. Luckily, my husband was willing to be the subject of the next phase of testing!

Prostate Play

After I requested this dildo for review, my husband suddenly expressed an interest in prostate play. So we started exploring, first with a small plug and then one of my fingers. As he got more used to having something in his butt, I started thinking that we should try the 7″ Curved next—or at least the top half of it.

Why only the top half? Because I don’t think this is the best first anal dildo. Though the head is nice and small, the mid- to lower shaft is wider than I’d consider a beginner’s size. Instead, I’d recommend the smaller (and less purple) version as a  better choice for those just getting into anal play. (Actually, I wished I had the small one myself for suction-cupping to flat surfaces like chairs.)

Anyway, after about a month of exploration, he was ready to start testing the 7″ Curved. The beauty of silicone and other body-safe materials is that two (or more) partners can safely use the same toy after it’s been sanitized. By washing well and then boiling, soaking in a 10%-bleach solution, or soaking in rubbing alcohol (and then washing well again), you get a clean, bacteria-free toy. This is also great if you like to use toys both anally and vaginally.

So we were ready to try the 7″ Curved as a prostate toy, finally…and it didn’t turn out too well. I think his butt has many of the same complaints that mine does: the taper is too much, and the bent feels extreme inside the rectum. He says, “When we’re using it, my prostate swells and clenches down on the dildo…It’s just uncomfortable.” He also finds the head too pronounced. We only used the 7″ Curved a couple times because he had no desire to do any further testing.

Other Thoughts on the Silicone

Though I have a love for soft silicone (especially in larger sizes), I think this particular dildo works best in its firmer density. The hardness prevents the curved shaft from bending too much. Plus the small tip has more impact—for extra G-spot stimulation—this way.

The 7″ Curved has a line running down the middle, which means that the silicone was injected into a two-part mold. I can’t feel the line with either my fingers or my vagina, thankfully. (And definitely not with my anus.)

Instead, I can only feel the smooth (but not glossy) matte finish. It reminds me of several “satin coated” Blush Novelties dildos I’ve tested, where I thought the silky finish felt luxurious in use, almost like an expensive vibrator.

Overall: Curvy, Curvy

I’m all about people being able to buy affordable toys that are also safe, and the Lovehoney 7″ Curved Silicone Dildo checks both those boxes. I appreciate the toy’s smooth, matte silicone and its ability to either vibrate or be suction-cupped to your fave flat surface.

My favorite way to use this toy was as a vibrating G-spot dildo. With a nice rumbly bullet, the vibrations travel well, all the way to the tip. And the curvy shape wraps around my pubic bone beautifully, to rub against the most sensitive part of my vagina.

Anally, the toy didn’t work out well for either my butt or my partner’s butt (and prostate). We thought the curve was a bit too much, especially paired with the big size difference between the 7″ Curved’s head and lower shaft. That’s why, for anal, I’d only recommend it to those who are sure that they enjoy a serious curve in their butt.

My thanks to Lovehoney for sending me this toy in exchange for my honest review.

Believe me, I will tell you when something does not work for me or when I think it’s badly designed. By making your next purchase through my affiliate links, you can support my writing at absolutely no cost to you. 

  1. Not all in the same session, mind you. I’ll include details about how to sanitize silicone later in this review!
  2. It won’t fit the We-Vibe Tango, though.
  3. There are very few silicone dildos that both vibrate and have suction cups; you always have to choose one or the other for dildos with bullet holes (most of which you can stick a Tantus suction cup into). One exception that I would recommend is the Blush Novelties Nude Impressions dildos, which have built-in vibrations and a suction cup.
  4. Helpful point: Lube up the hole before inserting the vibe, otherwise it’s hard to remove.
