In the right corner, weighing in at 5.15 ounces, the new kid on the sexual block, the orgasm double-whammy, the flexible delight of many: the Lovense Dolce!
And in the left corner, clocking in at 5.30 ounces, the latest in a long line of G-spot pleasuring heavy hitters, the vibrating wonder down under: the Lovense Lush 3!
Stay tuned as these vibrating powerhouses duke it out in a no-holds-barred, knock-down-drag-out battle to see who’ll take home the coveted Best Sextoy trophy and the well-deserved adoration of vagina-owners everywhere!
Looking at the Lovense Dolce (formerly known as Quake)
What a trophy it is, too! Okay, that was fun and all but let’s get back on track with a quick overview of Lovense’s brand new vibrator.
We aren’t kidding when we say brand new, as it was released only a few weeks ago. New or not, the Dolce is a phenomenally well-designed toy, especially how with it, Lovense raised the stakes when it comes to dual-action vibrators.
In a word, the Dolce is a perfect two-in-one vibrator. Nothing particularly unique there, as the sex-tech market is already well-populated with toys built to stimulate two different parts of a person’s body.
But what sets the Dolce apart is:
- its power as both of its twin motors deliver impressive amounts of pleasurable buzzes.
- it applies those tasty vibrations to the user’s G-spot and their clitoral region.
- it is gloriously, amazingly, flexible.
No longer will vagina-equipped persons have to contort themselves into knots to get a blended orgasm toy in intimate contact with their clit or G-spot as the Dolce can be bent, turned, or somewhat straightened to get it where it’ll do its awesome sexual delights.
Examining the Lovense Lush 3
To their much-deserved credit, Lovense has never shied away from improving their products. The Lush 3 is an excellent example; as with each version, the company has altered its overall design, improved the motor and battery life, boosted the antenna’s sensitivity and reception… to name just a few innovations.
Leading to the current generation: a powerful, comfortable, and stimulating toy Lovense is billing as “The most powerful Bluetooth remote control vibrator!”
And they are right in calling it that, as the Lush 3 packs an impressive amount of vibrational force under its metaphorical hood. More than enough to hit the G-spot orgasmic high note for anyone fortunate enough to get their hands on one.
More About the Lovense Dolce
Size-wise, the Dolce is 3.39 inches long when folded up, with the G-spot pleasuring end one and a half inches high. Meanwhile, its clit-stimulating part is 3.34 inches long, 1.07 inches tall.
Since the Dolce is all about flexibility, these measurements are a bit tricky to get your head around, so if you want a better idea of how big it is, we recommend scoping out Lovense’s excellent product page for it.
As our announcer said at the beginning of our comparison, the Dolce weighs 5.15 ounces. Like most Lovense’s products, it’s mostly made of body-safe silicone, so it is easy to clean and waterproof enough to take into the shower or bath without damaging it.
At its smaller, clit-stimulating part are a pair of buttons that operate each of the two Dolce motors, so users can turn each off or cycle through their pre-installed vibration patterns.
Above these controls are the metal contacts for the Dolce’s magnetic charging cable. On a full, 70-minute charge, users can enjoy its dual-action vibes for up to 120 minutes. When not in immediate use, it’ll stay charged for an impressive 240 hours.
Extra Info About Lovense’s Lush 3
Compact would be a fine way to describe this toy, making it ideal for travel-time fun or, as it’s a mere 5.30 ounces, toting around in the smallest of small bags.
The Lush 3 is 3.77 inches in length, 2.94 tall, and 1.37 wide. The G-spot component is the same though the part that goes into someone is 3 inches long.
Manually operating the Lush 3 is handled via a button on its narrow antenna part, which is where you’ll also find its metal points to attach to its provided magnetic charging cable.
If pink is your color, you’re in luck as the Lush 3 is vividly that and has an outer skin made of non-reactive silicone, which is body-safe and ideal for sexy bathtime fun.
What the Dolce and the Lush 3 Have in Common
While they have their differences—which we’ll be getting to in a jiffy—these toys definitely resemble one another.
We’ve mentioned their silicone skins, water resistance, and their magnetic charging systems. But the Lush 3 and the Dolce also have what has made Lovense sex toys so popular. Well, popular isn’t strong enough since the company reports they’ve sold a whopping 300,000. And that’s just for the Lush 3.
I’m referring to how smart these toys are. To take full advantage of their interactivity, all you need to do is download and install the Lovense Remote app, available for Android or Apple smartphones, as well as for PCs and Macintosh desktop computers. Turn on your Lovense toy, and—compliments of a robust Bluetooth connection—you’re all set.
Yep, it really is that easy. However, you do need Bluetooth to do it. Not a problem with most smartphones, though some Windows machines may require a special dongle, which is easy enough to acquire, and Lovense even sells their own if you want to one-stop-shop.
We cannot praise the Lovense Remote app enough, notably its most recent upgrade: it’s straightforward to navigate, fun to use, and provides an insane amount of control. And in the case of the Dolce, you have the option to operate each of the toy’s twin motors together or independently.
The app also allows users to record and share their own vibrational patterns, make their toys buzz and oscillate along with their favorite tunes, and grant permission to, or consensually take control of, any Lovense sextoy anywhere in the world. So if you and your lover can’t be together in the flesh, with a couple of these toys, you can have sex whenever you want.
And if you’re interested in getting quite a literal feel of what being in a porn film is like, the Lovense Remote allows you to join in on the fun by connecting the app and your toy to any of the thousands of interactive porn videos or the hundred or so erotic video games available.
Differences Between the Lovense Dolce and the Lush 3
What separates these two toys is a special extra-added something built into the Dolce. While it and the Lush 3 are equally designed for G-spot pleasuring, the Dolce has an entirely distinct unit for that and stimulating the user’s clitoral region.
Now the Lush 3’s antenna tail can do this to a lesser extent, but in all fairness, it’s nowhere as powerful or effective as the Dolce.
So too, the Lush 3 is nicely maneuverable—far more than many other G-spot toys you can pick up. But again, it doesn’t hold a candle to the close-to-ridiculous degree you can bend, fold, spindle though never-ever mutilate a Dolce.
Not that it’s completely flexible. In fact, the Dolce’s owner’s manual strictly says not to flatten it out or contort it excessively as that’ll damage its rather delicate inner workings.
Pros of Lovense’s Dolce Over the Lush 3
The Dolce has many good points in its favor; the most obvious is it’s a dual-stimulating sextoy versus the Lush 3’s exclusively G-spot pleasuring design.
Then there’s our lauding of its ability to neatly conform to the user’s body. No small plus in its favor, in addition to putting it precisely where the user needs it, they can use its flexibility to increase or decrease how it feels without having to adjust or remove the entire toy.
There’s also how it’s straight from the minds of Lovense’s engineers to your body. The Lush 3 is far from an antique, having appeared a few months or so ago; however, the Dolce isn’t an improvement on an older model but a completely original concept, built from the ground up for blended orgasms.
Pros of Lovense’s Lush 3 Over the Dolce
However, the Dolce’s newness might be a smallish strike against it. The Lush 3, after all, is yet another move forward for an already proven sextoy: and from the first to the second, and the second to the current one, Lovense has ironed out bugs, tweaked its shape, refined its electronics, upped its power and battery life, and turned a great product into a fantastic one.
Besides all this is the age-old question of not buying what you don’t need. If the idea of coming from either clitoral or G-spot stimulation or blended orgasms when both arrive together in what many consider to be mega-pleasurable, then the Dolce is that and a bag of chips.
But if this leaves you somewhat chilly, or you prefer to use separate and not one integrated sextoy for your combo-orgasming, the Lush 3 is the obvious choice.
Should you get a Dolce?
As we said, if you’re into blended orgasms, then the Dolce is a clear winner. Another thing to debate with yourself is—when weighing it against the Lush 3—whether or not you find it often physically challenging to use a sextoy.
To be clear, everyone’s body is beautiful: and a huge reason this is true lies in our glorious individuality. It’s when it comes to sex toys, there are some of us for whom every shape, size, or design of them feels like it was made specifically for us—and then there are others where it’s a constant battle for comfort or control and less like a lovely time of self-pleasuring.
If you’re in the second camp, the Dolce might be the solution you’ve been waiting for. It may not be completely ideal, but if you’ve struggled with sex toys in the past, it’s absolutely worth considering.
Why you need a Lush 3
Not enjoying clitoral stimulation during G-spot pleasuring, having trepidations over test-firing a new sextoy against using a perfected, tried-and-true—not to mention an extremely popular—model, are worth taking into account when weighing a Lush 3 against a Dolce.
There’s also the flipside to the Dolce’s flexibility. Just as you should choose a Lush 3 if you like having your orgasms apart from one another. If you’ve had great success with sex toys before, getting a Dolce may not be a high priority.
Flexibility is never a bad feature for anything, especially when it comes to sex toys. Though when it comes to electronic devices, it can come at a cost. As reflected in the Dolce’s manual, this is a user-configurable toy and fab for anyone craving that kind of control over where it goes and how it feels.
But overdoing it, like bending it too many times, flattening it out, or who knows what else might play havoc with its wiring and internal mechanisms. The question then remains if you’re willing to take the risk your new sextoy may some day unexpectedly give up its vibrational ghost.
Dolce vs Lush 3: The Verdict
We don’t want to leave you with the impression the Dolce is poorly-made or won’t go the distance, as Lovense’s reputation for designing, manufacturing, and supporting finely-made sextech is well deserved. Unless the Dolce’s flexibility makes your eyes light up like Christmas trees, you may be better off with a Lush 3.
Still, now that the bell’s rung and the match is over—though not with an absolute knockout—we gladly award our trophy to the Dolce. The Lush 3 couldn’t quite keep up with a two orgasms in one toy, wonderfully bendable and adaptable, and all-around “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee” champion like the Dolce.
