Any discussion regarding the various pleasures of anal sex it’s a safe bet at some time, or other the prostate will get some attention.
A ping pong ball-sized gland located between the bladder and rectum, its primary purpose is to make ejaculate: the fluid that allows sperm to get to where it needs to be.
It’s secondary … Well, I guess you could call its “purpose” is when stimulated from within the anus, it can increase the intensity of a penis-owner’s orgasm and even allow them to have more than one.
Naturally, more than a few sextoy manufacturers are aware of the prostate and the pleasures it can deliver, giving us products like Lovense’s Edge 2 massager.
Also from Lovense is their brand new small or large Hush 2 teledildonic butt plug. A toy, while not exactly designed for prostate play, does an incredibly good job of reaching it.
So let’s compare the Edge 2 with the Hush 2s to see which might be the perfect anal sextoy—and for whom.
Presenting the Hush 2
To begin with, there’s not one but two very different Hush 2 anal massagers: one for beginners and the other for the more experienced.
Extra-comfortable due to its narrowness and short length, the former serves as a great introduction to anal pleasuring. It’s also equipped with the essentials for this type of activity, such as a body-safe silicone outer covering and a slightly smaller diameter near its flared base so it won’t irritate your sphincter.
For those more versed in putting things up their butts, the larger Hush 2 is bulbous for that enjoyable “fillup up” feeling and—depending on how it’s placed and the user’s anatomy—can hit that prostate mark.
Both Hush 2s come with Lovense’s legendary electronics, so you can easily connect with the Lovense Remote smartphone app or the desktop version.
Once done, users can do everything from having them pulse in tune with music, respond to nearby sounds, link up with other Lovense smart sextoys for in-the-same-room or anywhere-in-the-world interactive activities, as well as buzz along with specially-coded adult videos and explicit games like their own Mirror Life or the Wild Life.
Examining the Edge 2
Aside from coming from Lovense and engineered for anal play, the Edge 2 might as well be from another planet—one really into prostate stimulation.
Equipped with a pair of powerful motors to reach that magical gland and the area around it up to and including the testicles, the Edge 2 is additionally insanely flexible: so it’s extremely adept at stimulating the prostate—whatever the shape, size, or configuration of anus.
Another bonus is that it can be operated entirely hands-free, enabled by its insert-and-forget contours and Lovense’s state-of-the-art inner workings. So it can do all the same high-tech, interactive and responsive miraculousness as the rest of their products.
The Edge 2 is similarly made of body-safe, non-reactive silicone for easy cleaning and won’t irritate you where the sun doesn’t shine.
What the Hush 2 and the Edge 2 have in common
Whichever toy you look at, they’re all are built for anal play—and as such, don’t have any sharp edges, are covered in silicone, and have a flared base—or something very much like it—to enable easy extraction and prevent them from getting stuck.
As Lovense products, they all work with the Remote app. Notably, the updated version, which makes all of its features, and there’s certainly a lot of them, is spectacularly effortless to select and operate.
Speaking of “operate,” while the Hush 2 and Edge 2 have controls on their flared bases, using them isn’t always comfortable.
Like how anal play of any sort necessitates a great deal of lube as—unlike a vagina—the anus evolved to absorb moisture, making anal play an exceptionally tricky endeavor, coupled with where all of these toys go: i.e., between your legs where it’s tough to see or even find their tiny little buttons.
So it’s more than a good idea to use the Hush 2 toys or an Edge 2 with the Lovense Remote app. It’s dare to say it leans more towards mandatory. Still, I don’t want to put off anyone out there who doesn’t have a smartphone, as with some dexterity, any of them can be used and enjoyed without one.
The toys ship with a magnetic charging cable, a storage bag, User Manual, and Quick Setup Guide, with the paperwork and step-by-step instructions on setting them up with the Remote app available on Lovense’s site.
And as they’re primarily silicone, each is waterproof. Another bonus for anal toys is flushing out with an enema beforehand, using them in the tub and shower to avoid messes, and cleaning up is vital to prevent icky contaminations, nasty infections, or life-threatening diseases.
How the Hush 2 and Edge 2 aren’t the same
Right off the bat, the Edge 2 is purposely engineered to reach and stimulate the prostate. In fact, you could say that’s all it was built to do.
Though that may make it sound as if you don’t have a penis, you can’t have fun with an Edge; I see no reason why you couldn’t enjoy its dual motors and flexibility sans prostate.
There’s also how the Edge 2 comes in a single size. At the same time, the Hush 2 offers a choice of a short, narrow version for novices and a longer, bulbous one for the well-experienced.
Another noticeable difference is how long they take to charge and the time you’ll have with them afterward.
For instance, The Edge 2 needs 100 minutes for an hour to nearly two hours of use.
The smaller Hush 2 requires a mere 40 minutes but only lasts two hours, while its big brother takes 2 ½ hours to charge and will go for an amazing eleven hours.
Pros of Hush 2 over Edge 2
If you don’t have a prostate or stimulating it isn’t a sexual activity you find interesting, either Hush 2 butt plug is a good choice.
This is especially true if you’re new to anal sex and the toys built for it since the small Hush 2’s comfortable thinness is ideal for newbie asses.
Meanwhile, the larger Hush 2 will more than fit the bill for the experienced. Its length and girth are more than enough to hit all those anal pleasure buttons and perhaps the prostate as well.
The Hush 2 toys are also fine and dandy for penis-owners and non-penis owners alike, so if you and your partner want to join in the pleasures of anal sex, you can share and share alike—just be extra careful to thoroughly clean and disinfect your toys.
Pros of Edge 2 over Hush 2
If you’re equipped with a prostate and are well versed in the arousing sensations it can bring, picking an Edge 2 is the way to go.
Also, in its favor is that it doesn’t restrict its vibrations to the inside and outside. Built with a matched set of pulse-pounding motors, the interior one is perfectly placed to get to and arouse that gland as the exterior does the same to the anus and, if you carefully position it and yourself, the user’s genitals and testicles, too.
Not necessarily advocating public play, though Lovense includes it in their marketing for both of these toys; if you can put together a consensual activity outside of your private space, the Edge 2 might be too large to easily conceal.
Picking the Edge 2 over the Hush 2 or vice versa hinges on that important question: what kind of anal sex play do you like—or would you like to try?
If you answered loudly and proudly your prostate is where it’s at, then looking at all of these toy’s features and potential drawbacks, it’s not hard to suggest the Edge 2.
Made and designed to fit this need, it has everything anyone could ever hope for in a prostate massager—while encompassing Lovense’s considerable smart sex tech skills for long-distance loving, erotic entertainment interactivity, and customization options galore.
If prostate stimulation ain’t your bag, the small or large Hush 2 is a clear choice. More for the smaller version, if you’ve barely begun to explore insertive anal sex play, or the larger if you know and like how it feels.
Another idea is to get your hands on a pair of Hush 2’s and an Edge 2, particularly if you’re equipped with a prostate and look forward to fooling around with your ass.
Like breaking yourself in with the smaller Hush 2, then after getting all jiggly with all its luscious sensations graduating to the larger toy before moving to the thrills of the Edge 2 has to offer.
And who says you have to follow this route? Why not use whichever toy whenever you want?
When craving a more subtle, laid-back playtime, you could get out your smaller Hush 2. If you’re aching for thuddy, vibes, and greater intensity, reach for the bigger Hush 2—and when you or your partner’s prostate calls out for attention, get out your Edge 2 to dial your anal sex play to eleven.
So take any or all of them out for a spin to plumb the arousing depths of your … depths!
