Bright and colorful, there’s no doubt that the Hue G is a cute lil’ guy. It’s fairly rumbly and powerful for the price, and for the most part I’m impressed. Despite my previous reservations about Blush, I have to say that this toy has grown on me a bit.
(Plus, I really have way too much fun with the HUEG amount of puns I can make with the name. Sorry guys!)
HUEG Mistake: Packaging That Made Me Blush
Sadly, the Hue G and I didn’t get off on the best footing at first. When the package arrived at the post office, the words “BLUSH NOVELTIES” were written in HUEG letters on the sides. While it could have been worse (at least it didn’t say SEX TOYS like some products I’ve gotten….ahem, Ocaler), it would have been nice to have gotten just a plain, unmarked box.
Yes It’s Cute, But Will it Give Me a HUEG Orgasm?
For the price, the Hue G is pretty rumbly and strong. It has 4 constant speeds (plus patterns as well), and the strongest speed is pretty similar to the We-Vibe Tango’s first speed. The Tango is still rumblier, but for the price, I’ve definitely seen worse. Another plus? It’s also pretty quiet.
A couple of things about the speed controller are a HUEG annoyance for me though. You can only move through the speeds and patterns in one direction: forward. This means if you want to speed up, then slow down, then speed up again, you are SOL my friend. The best you can do is cycle all the way through the patterns, or turn the toy off and start all over again. To be fair, though, many other toys out there have this same problem.
HUEG Kudos for the Design (Mostly)
One thing I like about the Hue G is the design. There are two vibrators inside, and this creates an even sensation around the entire head. This way I can stimulate either the roof or the floor of my vagina equally, all without having to trouble myself to turn the toy the other way. Call me lazy, but I kinda like it.
However, there is one issue I have with the design of the shaft. While the head is good & firm, the shaft is just a little too bendy for my taste. I found myself really wanting more pressure on my G spot than the Hue G could give. Bummer. Just a bit more firmness in the shaft, and this toy would have been pretty awesome.
HUEG Controversy: Is It Body Safe Material?
For awhile, I was very concerned that the Hue G might not be body safe. It arrived with another Blush toy, the Audre, which had a toxic plastic smell. Both toys were mysteriously labeled “pure silicone” rather than “platinum silicone,” and when I contacted Blush for answers, it really opened HUEG can of worms.
Long story short, the good news is this: after quite a bit of research, conversations with Blush, and a whole lot of help from Lilly at dangerouslilly.com, it seems that the Hue G is most likely body safe.
Since I’ve already pretty thoroughly beaten Blush over the head for this stuff in my Audre review, I won’t cover it all here again. Long story short, the good news is this: after quite a bit of research, conversations with Blush, and a whole lot of help from Lilly at dangerouslilly.com, it seems that the Hue G is most likely body safe.
- Rumbly-ish, and somewhat powerful. It’s strongest speed is somewhat similar to the Tango’s 1st setting, except a bit less rumbly.
- Super fun color options like Tangerine & Lime
- The 2 vibrators inside the head create an even sensation of vibration
- 4 levels of speed (in addition to multiple patterns). Having that 4th speed is really nice!
- Waterproof (but not submersible)
- Pretty quiet
- Like many vibes, there’s no way to cycle backward through the speeds & patterns, only forward
- While the head is good & firm, the shaft is a little more bendy than I’d like & I don’t quite get enough G spot pressure
- Not the most discreet shipping. Was shipped in a box with the words “BLUSH NOVELTIES” in HUGE letters.
- Lack of knowledge and/or transparency by Blush about their materials
