Review: Lovense Lush 2 App-Controlled Remote Vibrator

Lovense Lush 2 review long

How frickin’ strong is Lovense Lush 2??? I had to know. This app-controlled vibrator is the hottest remote vibe—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 here comparatively, against my experience with the best remote control vibrators available in 2019.

Power & Rumbliness

Lovense (not Lovesense) 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 for power: and on my scale, where Magic Wands average about 10, 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, especially when worn long-term, if you’re a sensitive user who normally feels a lot of sensation from vaginal/G-spot play.

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!!!

Strength is great, but what about connectivity?

Lovense App Connectivity

How well does Lush stay connected? This is super-important if you’re wanting to wear the toy out and about (or use it long-distance too, losing connection is soooo frustrating in the middle of long-distance play).

The truth about Bluetooth vibrators (which use a Bluetooth signal to connect the toy to the maker’s app on your cell phone) is that sometimes connection does cut out. It’s more likely to work if you have newer phones and if the antenna (Lovense’s tail in this case) is not totally blocked by flesh.

For people with larger bodies (= thick thighs, very fleshy labia, and/or bigger bellies), I recommend Lovense over any other app-controlled vibe company. General user feedback, report after report, is that for anyone with junk in the trunk, Lovense toys will stay connected best. Whereas OhMiBod and We-Vibe can be more finicky. My OhMiBod Esca has served me great, but I’m one skinny bitch, so your mileage may vary.

Here’s what you’re getting from the Lovense app with Lush 2, besides the most stable connectivity…

Lovense App

Lovense clearly has employed first-rate app developers. The Lovense app is visually appealing and easy to use, with lots of functions. I truly love my We-Vibe products—We-Vibe Wand and We-Vibe Melt especially—so it’s a little depressing that Lovense’s app is so much better, but that’s the truth and I gotta praise Lovense for it.

Close-range function options in the (free) Lovense app 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.
Lovense app functions

IMO, “Long Distance” is the star of the show: it’s how you let your play partner control you. Long-distance, my friend with benefits and I have never lost our connection—as stated, something that can happen with Bluetooth depending on several variables. (Especially if it’s a We-Vibe product!)

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 YES, seriously, this is so hot; I mean, why would I not want to see my partner during sex? The only problem: finding a phone stand and the best distance to situate Lush from my body, so he can both see my pussy and I can see him on the screen too.

One minor glitch: 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. Still, I’m such a fan of the Domi wand’s power that it is the toy we use most often, late at night—while Esca is hottest for the out-in-public scene. Just think about that little pink tail, hanging out of you/your partner while you get sexy, discreetly. (Assuming you’re not in a dead-silent place!)

Ease of Wear

Lovense Lush 2 bulb

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 faster, 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 (i.e., I might be weird this way). 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, but can be redirected to lie flat, running down the center of the vulva.

Lovense Lush 2 review square

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. This button placement, and stronger Bluetooth signal, are Lovense Lush 2’s major improvements over Lush 1.

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. (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. Basically, this is why I gave Lush 4/5 stars.

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 (like spandex shorts) outside. Long-distance, I look forward to using it with my lover, to exchanging silly & erotic texts with him and then seeing his face (and more, of course) through the Lovense app’s video function.

Shop the Lovense Lush 2 here at Lovense.

Internationally, check it out at Lovehoney UK or Lovehoney EU.

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.
