Review: Lovense Lush 2 App-Controlled Remote Vibrator

How frickin’ strong is Lovense Lush 2??? I had to know. This app-controlled vibrator is the newest, the hottest—especially its second version, which has better Bluetooth connectivity and more convenient button placement. Lush 2 is the one you know someone is asking for when they say, “I saw this pink vibe in a porno…any idea what it is?”

I’d heard varied accounts about the Lovense Lush’s orgasmic potential: Could it get me off or not, and what was the real deal? This review rates Lush 2 comparatively, against my experience with the best remote control vibrators available in 2019.

Power & Rumbliness

Lovense (notLovesense”) calls Lush 2 “the most powerful remote-controlled egg vibrator.” Now, I think it’s important to take any marketing claim with a grain of salt—but in this case, the advertising is true. Lovense Lush 2 is stronger than any insertable remote control vibe I’ve ever encountered. (On a side note, I think it’s fascinating how the “4x more powerful” section of the Lush 2 product page has “see inside” pics of the mechanical parts vs. comparable vibes!)

I rated Lush 2 a 7 out of 10 for power: and on my scale, anything above 5 is strong in the grand scheme of vibrators. Unfortunately, Lush doesn’t rank as highly as OhMiBod Esca 2 for rumbliness (vibration depth). That means Lush 2 can start to feel a little numbing if you’re a sensitive user.

Also, keep in mind that the Lovense Lush 2 is not a (Hitachi) Magic Wand. It’s reasonably strong, but it’s not knock-your-socks-off strong—and it’s mainly intended for vaginal use. If you’re someone who needs clitoral stimulation to orgasm (= most people with clits), then Lush 2 is best as a tool for teasing and foreplay. Consider the Lovense Domi wand instead if you want an app-controlled toy mainly for clitoral play (and not for wearing outside the house). Domi is a strong one!!!

Lovense App

Lovense clearly has employed first-rate app developers. The Lovense app is visually appealing and easy to use, with lots of functions.

Close-range options include:

  • My Patterns, where you can choose from seems like a million user-created vibe functions—great if you’re uncreative like I am and you want to vary it up.
  • Music, so you can sync your Lush to the rhythm of your songs on Spotify, iTunes, etc.
  • Sound, so you can have Lush pulse to music from other sources or random ambient noise.
  • And Alarm…which I haven’t tried because I hate alarms.

IMO, “Long Distance” is the star of the show: it’s how you let your play partner control you. I’m impressed with the Lovense app’s connectivity for long-distance play. My friend with benefits and I have never lost our connection—something that can happen with Bluetooth depending on many variables.

Creating usernames and accounts is easy, and pairing is incredibly simple too. (You just have to know your partner’s username.) Once we were connected, my FWB and I started playing with the goofy emojis immediately. Next we tried the voice exchange function, and that made it feel more personal. The Lovense app has a video function too, like built-in Skype. My lover’s opinion was that the Lovense app’s image quality wasn’t quite as good as in Skype, but I thought it looked the same.1

I was confused about how to cede vibe control over to him. It seems that the vibe owner (= me) can send texts and voice messages, but not initiate video calls or vibe control. Those options are grayed out, inaccessible to me. Essentially, the Lovense app makes the receiver the submissive by default. I do enjoy being controlled, and I trust my partner. But still, I wanted the ability to initiate a video call, you know? Instead, I waited for him to take both actions: video-calling me and controlling my Lush.

Overall, the app’s many functions have allowed us real, long-distance connection, and I love that.

Ease of Wear

The Lovense Lush 2’s bulbous shape is meant to connect with the wearer’s G-spot. I think the point in the “egg” section of Lush’s body is perfect for sitting on, or for squeezing against. Especially in combination with the strong vibes. I do get off on Lush’s powerful vibes when I’m being controlled—I will come on demand, it’s a talent of mine.

While I’m walking, though, Lush 2 likes to wiggle out of my vagina because that G-spot point is clashing with my pelvic bone. It just sticks out too much.2 Individual anatomy does vary a lot, and this seems to be an uncommon complaint. Still, you may want to wear supportive underwear if you plan to wear Lush 2 out in public. (And bring the included storage pouch!)

The Lush 2’s antenna/tail is long and a little hard to bend (especially compared to Esca 2). It will kink about at odd angles and has to be forcefully redirected.

The new position of the control button—in the tail rather than the vibrating bulb—is a massive improvement from the original Lush. If you just want to use Lush 2’s three steady speeds and four patterns without the app, then the control button is always right there and accessible! You can quickly turn off the toy for any reason, instead of having to reach farther back and dig around for that power button.

Overall Thoughts

The Lovense Lush 2 truly is a smart remote control vibrator: its app functionality is awesome, and the Bluetooth connection has been very stable for me and my partner. Lush 2’s strength is good, and it’s still pretty quiet after I insert it. (Much quieter than We-Vibe Moxie, for example.)

Lush 2 is the strongest wearable vibe out there, but doesn’t have the rumbliest vibration quality. If you’re a vibe critic like me, your bits may find it slightly buzzy after a while.

I like how Lush 2’s point sits against my G-spot—but I’m most comfortable wearing it inside my house and/or with constrictive underwear. For me, Lush 2 works better as a long-distance toy than a public-play one. I look forward to using it with my long-distance lover, to exchanging silly & erotic texts with him and then seeing his face (and more, of course) through the Lovense app’s video function.

Notes

  1. He has Android, I have an iPhone; this may or may not be a factor.
  2. “It” could refer to either Lush 2’s point or my pelvic bone here, I’m not sure which, but something about this pairing doesn’t sync up when I’m standing and moving.

    Would you overall recommend the Lush 2 or the Esca 2 more?
