For gay couples, especially with a long-distance relationship going, sometimes toys and telepresence are enough to keep the spark alive.
Gay men have different needs than other couples, for obvious reasons.
Fortunately, Lovense offers more than enough toys for any specific need that a man might have, and gay men are no different.
The telepresence features of Lovense toys are, of course, what they’re famous for, and if you don’t use the apps for them, you’ll lose about eighty percent of their functionality, even for the ones that have physical controls onboard.
All of Them
Every Lovense toy is compatible with the Lovense app.
It’s one of the defining features of Lovense’s product line, and in some cases it’s the only effective way to control the toys, especially for some of the smallest ones or ones like the Edge 2 and Hush 2 which have either minimal controls or ones that are difficult to reach.
Almost all Lovense toys are not only more conveniently controlled from the app, but also far more versatile and interesting when you use them with the app than with onboard buttons.
Speaking of app control, it’s well-known that long-distance relationships are where Lovense toys excel.
Their secure online connectivity makes it as easy to touch your partner as if you were there in the room with them.
Lovense toys excel in the long-distance connection department, in short.
If you have a long-distance relationship, regardless of orientation and gender, you absolutely should have at least one Lovense toy in your drawer.
It’s also worth mentioning that Lovense offers frequent sales to blunt the premium cost of their toys if you purchase them through their website.
Hush 2 is a Classic Butt Plug with A Twist
Lovense Hush 2 is a toy that should be familiar to most men, gay or not.
A butt plug is an important toy for you if you’re at all interested in the pleasures you can find from the back entrance, and men and women alike are able to benefit from anal pleasuring.
So, Hush 2 is a useful toy for any couple. But gay men will likely get great use out of it for the obvious reasons.
The smooth, tapering shape and impervious silicone skin makes for a convenient and easy insertion experience – important because the toy itself is harder than your average butt plug, requiring some size tolerance.
Of the Lovense toys, Hush 2 is very dependent on the app.
Its single button does let you choose vibration patterns, but it’s a relatively blunt instrument compared to the fine control permitted by the Lovense app.
Fortunately, as with all Lovense devices, the Hush 2 has near-seamless Bluetooth pairing, and it quickly soars to the head of the pack with Bluetooth connected.
We love the size options for Hush 2 as well, but smaller sizes are going to be more prone to potentially falling out, while larger sizes will require extensive warming up before you’re ready to insert them.
A special feature for many of the newest Lovense toys is connecting to an Apple Music or Spotify playlist, giving you the chance to feel your music in a whole new way.
Unlike other musical connectivity, this is a system that triggers the plug from the music file, rather than music heard through the air, though that’s also an option.
Lovense Hush 2 is a great option for music enthusiasts who really love music.
If your boyfriend or husband wants to, he can help you get a new handle on his favorite playlists as well as your own.
Hush 2 is a great toy for experienced anal enthusiasts, but if you’re a beginner you might want to avoid it because of its relatively inflexible size.
Edge 2 Prostate Massager is Powerful but Not Discreet
Edge 2 is another powerful anal toy.
Unlike Hush, Edge 2 is more specifically designed for a male anatomy, since it’s angled harder forward to hit the prostate and has an additional bar on the outside to massage the perineum – we’ll see this again in the Diamo, more on that in a bit.
Edge 2’s specialty is prostate orgasms, and it does that well.
Edge 2 is easier to insert than Hush by far, which makes it one of the most convenient Lovense toys for gay men.
Edge 2 gives incredible waves of orgasmic pleasure, and the perineum vibrator complements the prostate massage that’s the main draw of using a massager like this one.
I’ve tried other prostate massagers, both powered and unpowered, and they’re not nearly as powerful or precise as the Edge 2.
If you – or your partner – wants the ultimate prostate stimulation, you’re in for an incredible ride with Edge 2’s multiple vibrators.
The Edge 2 also has some real quality of life improvements over the original version of the same thing.
If you had the original, one of the most common critiques of it was that it often had a problem sliding out.
The new version has an enlarged bump immediately above the stem.
Compared to Hush 2, Edge 2 isn’t as girthy, but it’s more focused on the prostate, while Hush 2 is more focused on the anal stimulation.
The two toys have the same insertable motors, but Edge 2 has another one.
An extra feature advertised by Lovense for gay couples, Edge 2 can pair with Max 2 so that stroking with Edge 2 triggers corresponding vibrations in Max 2, to give you a chance to feel like you’re having sex together.
With this pairing of toys, Edge 2 and Max 2 provide one of the most incredible two-piece combos in Lovense’s entire product line, and help you build your connection together.
Edge gives you loads of options and ties them together well.
Sex Machine is There for a Good Old-Fashioned Pounding
The Lovense sex machine is one of the best options in this class of devices.
Big, weighty, and controllable from the app, giving it a selectable depth and stroke that are fantastic for just straight-up penetration.
The Lovense Sex Machine isn’t specifically for gay men but it’s fantastic for a long-distance couple that’s had some time together in the past and has some history with regular old anal sex.
With that in mind, let’s talk about some specifics about the LSM. It’s remote-actuated, like all Lovense toys, and it’s quite heavy.
The machine itself weighs close to 30 pounds, and with the packaging and the other parts that come in the box it’s close to 40.
Its app connectivity makes this one of the smartest machines in the segment, giving it a selectable stroke and an action that takes it to the next level beyond many more traditional sex machines, some of which have had little more sophistication than a reciprocating saw mounting a dildo instead of a saw blade.
Sex machines are an old type of device – they’ve been around since the 1920s, with refinement coming as the internet generated more interest in them, especially with Cam shows in the 2000s to 2010s.
The sex machine has always been a popular option for BDSM-flavored play, with video content abounding on the Internet featuring tied-up women and men being subjected to a pounding machine controlled by someone off-camera.
The Lovense Sex Machine gives you the option of a second attached arm driving two dildos on opposing action.
This twist lets you not only use it for one-person sex or remote, but for times when you have both of you in the same room, giving you more options for building up your relationship locally as well as remotely.
Gay couples using this machine are going to see some real options opening for them.
The Lovense sex machine has some compelling competitors made by companies like Kiiroo and HiSmith, but the combination of an attractive physical package, double ended option for same room uses by a couple, and a powerful motor make this one of the best choices available.
If you’re interested in sex machines, and so is your partner, the Lovense Sex Machine is a compelling choice for gay couples not just now but for years to come.
Diamo: For Men Who Aren’t into Butt Stuff
Let’s just get this right out of the way: Some gay men aren’t interested in getting anal. It just doesn’t interest them, they’ve had bad experiences, whatever.
And persuading someone to take something they’re not interested in is a problem.
But a lot of man-focused sex toys assume that you’re interested in receiving anal, and that can be a real problem for gay men who don’t want to be in the receiving position.
The Lovense Diamo takes the opposite approach. Diamo is a cock ring that approaches penile stimulation with the Lovense touch.
Another toy that’s difficult to control without the app (it has the same single side button featured on other small-footprint Lovense toys like the Hush), it comes alive with the app-enabled slider control.
Internally it has 3 steady levels and up to 10 patterns, but the app gives it endless opportunities for customization.
Like other Lovense toys, it boasts a long battery life – 2.5 to 3 hours of continuous use – and a whisper-quiet motor deadened further by its silicone construction.
With these helpful features, you’re likely to be able to use the Diamo just about anywhere, including the public play that is one of Lovense’s trademarks.
The long side of Diamo is ideal for using in perineum play, but it can also be rotated around to run down the shaft of your cock if you want or other options – find out more about your favorite positions with this amazing toy.
Diamo’s unique construction gives it some big advantages over other perineum stimulators – especially over ones that go from anal penetration as a starting point.
If you or your boyfriend are curious about perineum play but are not interested in trying anal, give Lovense Diamo a try and see if it’ll scratch that itch the way a prostate massager won’t.
Gush Goes Right to the Point
For men, reaching orgasm quickly means glans stimulation, first and foremost.
Gush is a nicely flexible vibrator that wraps around the glans and gets it gushing in moments.
It’s one of the most focused glans vibrators on the market and really helps when you or your boyfriend just want to get off.
It’s a nicely balanced piece of tech with the usual suite of Lovense’s fantastic app options and syncing if your boyfriend’s in the mood at the same time you are.
Gush’s thick vibrator means it’s a bit of a bundle in your pants, so it’s not as compatible with discreet play as some of the other devices in Lovense’s product line.
But for play sessions without your pants, it’s known for fast, hard orgasms that leave its users breathless.
Max 2 is a Classic
Lovense’s Max 2 toy is one of the first that they released, back in 2013.
A neutral-gendered piece with a sleek high-tech design, Max 2 looks externally like a slightly thicker version of a Fleshlight or another hand-powered masturbator toy.
But that’s where the resemblance ends.
With powerful vibrators inside, Max 2 is one of the best masturbators out there, and its internet connectivity lets gay couples play with each other from a long distance.
If you’re in a long-distance relationship, and you have a penis, you owe it to yourself and your partner to have a Max 2.
Calor Adds Warmth to the Classic Pocket Pussy
Where Calor differs from Max 2 is its design. Unlike Max 2 it’s open on both ends when it’s ready for play.
Plus, it has a feature Max 2 lacks, an internal heating system that lets it warm up to body temperature at the app’s control.
Sync options let Calor, like Max 2, be used to control your partner’s synced Lovense toy, giving you the option of having sex with your boyfriend over long distance.
If you have a relationship that could benefit from some long-distance sex options, Calor and Max 2 are both great choices for you.
Why are Lovense toys so popular for gay couples?
With the Internet, many gay couples meet long-distance and could be separated for months or years.
Lovense toys are well-known with great build quality and their sync options and remote app control make them great choices for sexy time when you’re miles away or even halfway across the planet.
Are There Any Problems?
Some reviewers show that some of Lovense’s toys may not be as quiet as advertised, so public play, especially with toys that have an external component, may not be as easy as you see in videos, which are often staged for the viewer.
Lovense toys are fantastic for gay couples, especially if you’re in a long-distance relationship.
They offer options for many preferences, including some that are relatively unique, like the all-external Diamo perineum massager.
If you’re interested in changing the trajectory of your relationship with your boyfriend, or just adding a little spark that’s been dulled by distance, give Lovense’s many high-quality toys a shot the next time you’re looking for something new in the bedroom.
