If you enjoy anal sex play, it’s pretty much guaranteed you’ve spent considerable time puzzling over which of the current wide range of appropriate toys to try out.
This is why we’re here to lend our considerable experience in this field—anal sex toys, that is—to your search. And perhaps help steer you towards the right toy for this right job and maybe even bring you a new range of anal sex delights.
Out of the gate, we honestly recommend narrowing your search down to one outstanding manufacturer. No surprise, considering our site’s focus, but in all sincerity compared to other companies, Lovense has and still does, set the gold standard for excellence in design, manufacturing, and product support.
And so our next question has to be which of Lovense’s two specifically dedicated anal sex toys could be best for you?
So without further ado, here’s our comprehensive comparison between Lovense’s Hush and their Edge: pros for each, their cons, which might be best for whom, and then which should take home that coveted anal sex pleasure prize.
The Lovense Hush
Advertised as “The World’s First Teledildonic Butt Plug,” the Hush is all that and a bag of chips.
Design-wise it checks off every essential anal-sex feature: a flange at its base so it won’t get pulled into the anus, a large-but-not-too large insertable part—so it can be enjoyed by newbies or old hands at anal sex play—and features a spiral design at its base to make removing it that much easier.
Its materials are also top-notch, demonstrated by it made of nothing but high-quality silicone. Why is this good? For starters, it means that there’s a low, low, low chance of an allergic reaction to it, as opposed to toys made with latex, rubber, or phthalates. It also means that even after prolonged use, it won’t crack, stain, or corrode.
Internally, it boasts the most potent motor of any anal sex toy on the market. Now, normally more doesn’t always equal better, but with anal sex toys—considering the anus doesn’t have as many nerve endings as, say, genitalia—strong vibrations are preferable.
In the smarts department, as with other Lovense products, the Hush’s practically infinite array of vibrational patterns and intensities can be controlled with Lovense’s smartphone (iOS or Android) app, via a Bluetooth connection, or with their multi-platform desktop version.
This gets us to the “teledildonic” side of the Hush: its brains, like the Hush’s pleasurable features, can be manipulated with the toy close by or with the smartphone or computer app in the hands of someone else who’s halfway around the world—making it ideal for keeping the passion raging for couples in long-distance relationships.
The Lovense Edge
If you know anal sex and happen to be equipped with a prostate, you’re likely intimately aware of how sexually pleasurable it can be to stimulate that magic gland.
Here is where the Edge comes in, as it’s designed with just this kind of stimulation in mind. Looking at it tells the entire story, with its specialty-engineered insertable component evident.
But looks aren’t everything, as that part of the Edge is also wonderfully flexible, so users won’t have to pull it in and out, or around and around, to locate that prostate sweet spot. Instead, all you need to do is get it into the right position and move straight to the fun stuff.
And fun it most definitely is, as it boasts not one but two motors, so you can stimulate the inside of the anus as the outside, which prostate play enthusiasts will recognize as frequently playing an essential role in that type of orgasm.
What The Hush And The Edge Have In Common
Both the Hush and the Edge are made of the same high-grade materials, so they’ll be as durable as they are pleasurable—and easy to clean, as well.
Internally, their electronics are equally comparable, so each is Bluetooth linkable to the Lovense app, smartphone, or computer version, to be wirelessly controlled from anywhere, no matter the distance.
They can work with the Lovense Media Player, as well. This innovative computer software—sorry, Apple users, it’s currently PC only—allows users to make customized vibration playlists matching their favorite videos’ actions.
The Hush and Edge equally sport the same high-powered motors: which, as we mentioned, can be critical to an enjoyably stimulating anal sex play session.
The Differences Between The Hush And The Edge
Comparing the two, what stands out is their intended purpose. The Hush best described as an excellent all-around anal sex plaything while the Edge was designed for that plus to deliver prostate stimulation.
Speaking to this, one of its prongs (for lack of a better word) is flexible and, therefore, confirmable for stimulating that gland versus the Hush, which is a fixed shape.
There’s also the matter of the motors, as while both use the same high-intensity type, the Edge has two over the Hush’s single. This doesn’t necessarily edge out—sorry about that—the Edge over the Hus, as two helps it in that prostate stimulation department.
Pros Of The Lovense Hush Over The Lovense Edge
Pitting it against its sextoy compadre, the Hush gets a well-deserved nod for being a much more universal plaything. By that, we mean that it’s equally a great introduction to anal sex devices and a blast for people with more experience in that department.
Another facet of that “universality” is that it can be used and enjoyed by anyone, no matter their genitalia, with an anus who wants that kind of play.
It’s innovative design similarly gains it a recommendation. Both the Hush and the Edge can be easily removed, but the flange and bulb aspect of the Hush keeps it staying put despite how energetic the person wearing it might get, which makes it an excellent addition to the toy box for people who enjoy public sex play.
Pros Of The Lovense Edge Over The Lovense Hush
The Hush’s universality is fine and/or good but makes it a one-trick anal-sex pony (now there’s a mental image!): OK if you want that and only that, but if you also want prostate play, then it may not be the best for you.
And if you do like prostate stimulation, then the Edge will likely take the lead for you. On top of that, it’s dual motors deliver a wider-span of vibrational delights, up to and including the region around—and not just in—the anus.
Who Should Get A Lovense Hush?
If prostate play isn’t your thing—because of arousal or biology, take your pick—then the Hush would be ideal. It’s also an excellent toy for vulva-equipped couples who share a passion for anal sex—or relationships with the same kind of interest, but neither the penis-equipped are into prostate tickling.
What we’re saying is that if you want to enjoy anal sex play with your intimate circle and your various pleasures don’t involve that gland, then the Hush is the right choice.
Who Should Get A Lovense Edge?
If you do like—and we mean really, really like—your prostate, then the choice is as clear: that of the two, the Edge is the perfect device for that kind of thing: pretty much hands-down.
Not that it can’t be enjoyed without utilizing that design feature, but it’s so specific to it that it doesn’t make a lot of sense to pay for something you won’t use.
Still, if prostate play is on your sexual potential to try-out-and-see-if-I-like-it lists, we heartily suggest the Edge over the Hush as it’ll give you the option to experiment—and if it doesn’t rock your world, still use it as a basic anal sex toy.
After weighing the many pros, the scant cons, and the differences between these two extraordinarily well-built and designed toys, we’re awarding the Anal Sex Gold Medal (and you don’t want to know what it looks like) to the Hush.
It’s not that the Edge is an inferior toy, it’s just that it’s a specific kind of one. As we said, ideal if you like prostate stimulation but otherwise just a good, though perhaps not great, basic anal sex toy.
It’s also a pretty inclusive item in that if you and your partner, or partners, share in the delights of anal sex but don’t have the same genitalia in common, you can share it instead of plopping down extra dollars for two different toys.
The ultimate decision is up to you and your sexual desires and needs, of course. But no matter which of these you may end up choosing, we unequivocally say that as long as it comes from Lovense, it will be safe, well-made smart-as-smart-can-be—and spectacularly fun to use!
