Lovense Gush Review: The Best Glans Vibrator Ever Made?

By Roger Korn

No one beats Lovense when it comes to sex toys. I know I’m supposed to be an impartial reviewer, but each of their products I get to try seem better designed, better built, and more refined than the last.

Their newest hands-free, flexible glans massager, the Gush, is no different. From the moment I opened its box to the end of the weekend I spent using it, I was thoroughly impressed by its power, versatility, and how well it worked with the Lovense Remote app.

I have a good amount of experience with sex toys for men, having bought a half-dozen or so over the years, and have also received quite a few to review for top sites like LovenseFan, so I’m not speaking from ignorance.

The Gush is certainly one of the oddest sex toys I’d used because – before I tried it out – my only other experience with a male sex toy was the kind where you slip your whole penis into them, like Lovense’s own Max 2, which I thoroughly enjoy playing with.

But the Gush isn’t designed for an entire penis, just the head (the glans), which took a little getting used to. When I got the hang of working it, it quickly became my favorite Lovense product – and my overall best toy. Period!


About Lovense’s Gush Glans Massager

The Gush easily fits in the palm of your hand. On the top is a silver plastic insert, where I’m guessing its electronic and Bluetooth components are located, in addition to the metal contacts for its magnetic charging cable.

Turn the Gush over, and you’ll see a pair of flexible flaps designed to wrap around the head of your penis. Inside the middle of the Gush is a nice, textured selection that adds to how good the toy feels.

The Gush comes with an “optional band” you can wrap around the toy to tighten it, if that’s what you want. I think this is a great idea as occasionally, I’ve found other male sex toys ,haven’t been tight enough for me. I also like how you can use it with or without the band to change how the Gush feels.

Everything Lovense’s Gush Offers

There are all sorts of ways you can use a Gush, which is my top reason for liking it so much.

I first tried it hands-free, with it only on the glans of my penis. Though I found it tough to orgasm like this the first time round, it was still extremely pleasurable.

Now and again, it felt like it might come loose, so I used the optional band, which made it feel far more secure.

Next, I tried it as a masturbatory aid without the band, and, let me tell you, it was such a great experience to feel its powerful vibrations as I slid it all the way down – from the tip of my penis, down my shaft, and then close to my testicles. And, if I wanted to, I could also have turned it around to have its vibrations run along the underside of my penis, too.

Then I did the same, but this time I looped the band around the Gush, which made it feel extra intense. Sometimes almost too much, so the next time I use it this way, I’ll also put on some desensitizing lube first.

Next to the silver section on the left side of the Gush is the toy’s power and settings button. The Gush comes with three power levels and four built-in patterns. Selecting each of them was easy, but after using the Lovense Remote app with the Gush, I don’t think I’ll use the toy’s built-in button again – except to turn it on and off.

Because the Lovense Remote app has so many options and great features, and is remarkably simple, it’s really easy to set up and use. My favorite app feature is how you can make your own set of vibrations, save it, and play it back anytime you want.

The option for the Gush to move to the music on my phone was also amazing, and I made a fun game out of picking the perfect sexy playlist for it to rock along to.

Lovense Gush’s Size and Weight

It’s 86 millimeters or 3.39 inches long, 52 mm/2.05 inches wide, and the interior, which contacts your skin, is from 32 mm/1.26 to 35 mm/1.38 inches of its length.

Weighing just 133 grams, the Gush never felt too heavy or too awkward when using it. It’s also small and light enough to throw in a bag so you can take it with you when you’re traveling.

Aside from its silver ABS plastic part, the Gush is made of body-safe, waterproof silicone and is extremely comfortable, but also real easy to clean.

Each time I used mine, I gave it a fast wash with antibacterial dish soap and warm water before drying it off with a lint-free cloth. The Gush also comes packed with a black storage bag to keep it lint-free, or you can keep it in its original box.

Because it’s silicone, you can use it safely in the bath or shower, and use a variety of lubricants without damaging it. But you should only use the kind made for silicone sex toys and avoid those that might damage it. I find that a water-based lubricant works best for my silicone toy collection.

Using Lovense Remote App With the Gush

My Android phone’s served me well for about three years, including when I used it with other Lovense sex toys, so I wasn’t very worried about using it with my new Gush.

To thoroughly test it, I first deleted Lovense Remote and then reinstalled it. After that, connecting the Gush to it was as smooth as silk, as was using all of the app’s many features.

Another thing I did was download the Wild Life demo for my PC and hook it up with my phone to my Gush. It took me a few tries to get it to work, but soon I was playing the game, and once I romanced one of the characters, I felt and saw the explicit experience I had with them.

I only wish the demo was longer, with more things to do. But it’s still loads of fun, and I’ll definitely buy the full game once it comes out.

Charging the Lovense Gush

It takes 65 minutes to charge up a Gush, and after that, you have 115 minutes before it runs out. I used mine many times over a weekend and never had it lose power, though I got into the habit of connecting it to its magnetic charger after each use which probably helped.

A fully-charged Gush will also last 120 hours in standby mode, so if you travel with it – unless you’re going a very long distance – it’ll be ready for you to use when you arrive at your destination.

What Comes With a Lovense Gush?

The toy is shipped with its optional band, charging cable, black bag to keep it in, quick setup guide, and a more comprehensive user manual. Leave it to Lovense to make all of these exceptionally well, with none of them or the Gush itself ever feeling like it was cheap or rushed. A lot of thought went into everything and it shows!

The box it comes in is well made and durable, and is great for keeping the Gush safe and clean with all its accessories in one place.

Lovense Gush Review: The Verdict

Lovense’s Gush is so fun to use! If I hadn’t received one to review, I’d have bought one, anyway. I like it so much; I’m thinking of buying a spare one if something happens to the one I already have.

It’s that good and maybe even better since I feel I’ve barely scratched the surface of what I could do with this amazing sextoy.

Things like I haven’t tried it with interactive porn videos or with the Lovense Remote app’s long-distance features yet. I also want to see what other Gush owners have to say about it and use some of their customized playlists to find out if they’ve got new and fun patterns I could enjoy.

On top of that, the Gush might be great with other sextoys. As a reviewer, I have several I can get out and fool around with in conjunction with my Gush. I could, for instance, use my Lovense Edge 2 for the best of both worlds, as there’s no reason why I shouldn’t be able to use the Remote app to control them both at the same time.

Lovense’s Diamo is another toy I want to try with the app, as I’ve had nothing but great times using this vibrating cock ring. The idea of combining it with the Gush to stimulate these two very different parts of my body gets me quite excited.

I think Lovense has outdone themselves with the Gush. If you like penis vibrators and are looking for a quality, versatile, and exciting toy to use, you can’t go wrong by buying the Gush for yourself.

This is why I give it my highest recommendation, and if you have one or are thinking of purchasing a Gush, I’d love to hear more about your experiences with it.
