The Lovense Lush 2 is the second version of one of the most advanced adult sex toys available on the market. Lovense put their designers to work after customers of the original Lush gave suggestions for updates and changes. You talked, and they listened. This article is the ultimate review of the Lovense Lush 2, one of the most technologically advanced sex toys on the market.
What are the improvements that have been made to the Lovense Lush 2? Lovense may have made some changes on the technology side that we do not know or understand. However, here are the changes in design and function between the Lush and Lush 2:
- Control Button Location
- Audio Sensitivity
- Bluetooth Connectivity
If you’ve ever been curious about the remotely controlled sex toys or want to know more about this amazing new toy, then this is the place to start. Continue reading for all the details on the Lovense Lush 2.
Why a Lush 2?
Before I decided to get my very own Lovense Lush 2, I wanted to know what the difference was, why a second version. The answer surprised me. As it turns out, Lovense decided to improve on their original design based on real customer recommendations.
Some of the differences that you will find are:
The control button has been moved from the bulb end on the original Lovense Lush to the antenna (external end) on the Lush 2. This allows for easier control while using the Lush 2 during solo play or without a connected remote device.
The antenna is slightly bigger on the Lovense Lush 2. This is in part to the relocation of the control button, as mentioned above. Neither antenna provides direct vibrations.
The “arm” of the Lush 2 allows for a bit more customized fit, allowing you to bend the base of the antenna for a tighter or looser fit, as needed.
Though both the Lush and Lush 2 can respond to external audio, the Lush 2 tends to be slightly more responsive and will vibrate on an individual or single sounds more than the Lush, such as a clap of hands.
Lovense took customer reports of connection issues seriously. In addition to revamping the Lovense app, they increase the signal strength of the Bluetooth in the Lush 2. The increased signal strength means fewer connection issues when using the Lush 2 for long-distance play.
However, you still need to remain within the range of your connected device, like a smartphone for the connection to work.
Lovense Lush 2 Shipping
I’m not necessarily shy or easily humiliated; however, I do enjoy having some privacy in my life, especially when it pertains to my sex life.
I’d prefer for my neighbors, my mailman, and my children to not know what new sex toys I’ve purchased, nor do I want them to have the slightest idea I use them. I think many others share this same sentiment.
With this in mind, I was happy to find that Lovense packages and ships all of their customer orders in discreet regular brown boxes.
Inside of this box is an additional discreet box (this is essential for those who have family members that like to peek inside the original box although they know it’s not for them, like my husband, for example.)
During check out, I was allowed to choose two separate shipping addresses if I wanted. Why do they offer this option? Although I didn’t personally use it this time, Lovense provides this easy shipping choice to help simplify the purchase of long-distance couples. This is the first time I’ve seen a company make it so easy!
After entering my information, I was provided with a few shipping methods, and ultimately, I was able to get the product in a matter of 2-3 business days. This is common for most regions according to their web site.
Lovense Lush 2 Setup: How To
Everything you need to know about unpacking and setting up your Lovense Lush 2, so when you are ready to play, so is your fun new toy.
Unboxing and Charging the Unit
When I unboxed my Lovense Lush 2, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it came with a very straightforward, quick setup guide. I’m not the kind of person who spends time reading the user manual on every electronic purchase I make.
Usually, I only refer to any user manual once I have a problem. I’m not recommending my bad habit. You should honestly read the user manual because it has a lot of helpful information. And this toy has some great options you’ll want to learn about in advance.
Step One: Charging
The way this setup process begins, as with many electronic gadgets, is to allow the device to get an initial charge. The charging adapter resembles a pin, and you’ll find a small hole for the charging port located on the bulb of the toy.
The Lush 2 will let you know when it’s charging as a red light will appear. Just the opposite, a green light will appear once it’s complete.
Charging electronics before their use can feel like it takes an eternity, but I was pleasantly surprised that the Lovense Lush 2 was done in a mere hour and thirty minutes!
Step Two: Test Out the Modes
Once charged, I had to test out the seven different modes before use. Manually pressing the button on the unit is straight forward:
- 1st Press: Low Vibration
- 2nd Press: Medium Vibration
- 3rd Press: High Vibration
- 4th Press: Pulse
- 5th Press: Wave
- 6th Press: Fireworks
- 7th Press: Earthquake
Step 3: The Lovense App Setup
While the manual pressing options were great to have, I wanted to use the infamous app to get the full experience of the Lovense Lush 2. Getting the app setup was extremely simple.
- In the Google Play or App Store, you’ll find the Lovense Remote App.
- Once installed, you’ll need to sign up for an account.
- Log in
- Once logged into the app, you’ll find a connection icon in the top right corner. Tap the plus sign that appears to add your Lovense Lush 2.
The process only takes a minute at most, and I was in the app in no time. This app is compatible with iPhone/iPad Air/iPad Mini/iPod Touch iOS 9.0 and later. It is also compatible with devices that are Android 4.3 and later. For the app to work with your device, you need to have Bluetooth 4.0 enabled.
Using Bluetooth, the app will locate the nearby toy, and you’ll then hit “Done.” It’s as simple as that! I was shocked at how little time it took me to get my phone configured with my new Lovense Lush 2.
Step 4: Using All The App Features
What immediately overwhelmed me was all of the customization features available. You can make your own patterns of vibrations and even connect with music for a session. Clicking the “remote” button will allow you to freestyle your session, but making a pattern was simple and easy, this was more interesting to me than freestyling.
You’re not limited to just the smartphone app, either. You can download and connect your device to your PC. It’s compatible with Windows and Mac PCs! For MAC you’ll need your Bluetooth 4.0 enabled, and for Windows PC, you’ll need to use the Lovense USB Bluetooth Adapter to connect your unit.
Lovense Lush Bluetooth Issues
One of the biggest upgrades provided with the Lovense Lush 2 is that the Bluetooth issues many were reporting in the Lovense Lush have been completely fixed.
Users were reporting bad Bluetooth connectivity from as little as two feet away, or in some cases, a continuous drop in Bluetooth connection after only a few moments of us.
The designers of the Lovense Lush listened, and they stepped up their game significantly with the Lovense Lush 2, making a big comeback.
This is a very admirable trait for a company to have. Taking the critiques of many of their users to heart and creating a solution is something a lot of sex toy designers and manufacturers fail to do successfully.
Solo Play with the Lovense Lush 2
I am a firm believer in toys that do not require a partner to operate. While many of the Lovense toys are designed to be used by couples or play partners and work well for long-distance play, the Lush 2 provides plenty of options for solo pleasure as well.
Unlike the original Lush, the button is easily accessed on the Lush 2. The control button is now located on the antenna, making finding that quick off button super easy.
On the other hand, it also makes moving through the three different speeds and four unique patterns just as easy, letting you find just the right rhythm to be able to lay back and just enjoy yourself.
When using the Lovense Lush 2 for solo play, I would recommend using plenty of lube to make insertion and finding just the right spot so much easier. I did make sure to use a water-based lube to ensure an easy cleanup.
The Lush 2 has quickly become my favorite solo toy thanks to the hands-off option. Unlike other toys that require holding in place or are too complicated to operate, the Lush 2’s design and comfortable texture make it easy to forget it is even there.
Connecting With A Partner
So, what if you want a partner to join in? Holy cow is it easy! As long as your partner creates an account you simply click on the long-distance feature, add them as a connection and viola. You can give your partner the ability to create patterns, do a live control, start up a video chat, or even send you pictures!
I was amazed at how smart this compact little device is with the connected app. Long gone are the days of battery-controlled vibrators and dildos, and hello, to small, powerful, and connected 21st-century device!
Had I known smart toys such as this existed, I would have upgraded years ago, and to be frank, it makes me feel slightly old and outdated.
Wearing the Lovense Lush 2
One of the favorite features of the Lovense Lush 2 and many of the Lovense products is their ability to be worn when out and about. Yes, I mean wearing your new toy under your clothing and walking around out in public.
I was surprised how comfortable it was to wear the Lush 2, though wearing this toy while doing much walking around may prove difficult without some type of support.
The Lush 2 is designed to press against the area of the G-spot, so the larger end tends to move quite a bit while walking. Stairs are especially difficult; I was afraid it would fall out, though luckily that never happened.
Inserting the Lush 2 is fairly easy with just a little lube, and using the connected app is easy as long as you keep your connected cell phone close. I made the mistake of getting a bit far away from my cell phone in the middle of a very pleasurable moment, then suddenly – nothing.
So, keep that phone within 5 feet or so for the best connection.
If I had one complaint about the wear-ability of the Lush 2, it would have to be in the rigidity of the antenna, the end that connects to Bluetooth. In my case, I was wearing a loose and roomy skirt, but the smaller end can stick out at an odd angle.
Obviously, this is going to be different for each wearer depending on personal anatomy; just know it can be an issue.
Connecting With A Cam Website
Although I am not a cam star myself, my friend Amy is, I still want to dwell on this bit alone because I think it’s a very interesting and awesome facet Lovense Lush 2 offers to its cam friendly customer base. Lovense has partnered with several popular cam sites such as:
- Bonga Cams
- Myfetish Live
This partnership allows clients of these cam models, to supply tips in exchange for control of the Lovense Lush 2 toy. I was curious, so I went around to several of these cam sites checking out the numerous models. I was surprised to find that a good majority of them were using the Lovense Lush 2 live, no matter what website I chose to go on.
I have to say the marketing for this product is phenomenal and having the outreach that this product does into the cam industry is probably one of the smartest tactics I’ve seen. Yet the outreach and wide use are warranted given the ratings many of these women have supplied of this product.
This product truly makes their jobs pleasurable and exciting. Their clients find it equally exciting and pleasurable.
Another notable program Lovense offers is an affiliate program. They will supply you with a specialized link and marketing materials for you to spread the word on the product, and in exchange, you’ll get a nice little paycheck. Amazing right? Spreading the word about this top-quality product is easy, so why not?
Lovense Lush 2 Warranty
Lovense offers a one-year warranty for all of their toys, which is awesome if you’re concerned about purchasing a toy that won’t hold up. This means that they stand by their product and are confident in their quality and ability to hold over time.
Some of the warranty details include:
- A full one-year warranty on all toys
- Warranty covers all moving/working parts
Warranty does NOT cover:
- Cosmetic wear
- Damage from misuse or neglect
- Any toy that has been worked on or dismantled
Using the Lovense Lush 2
After getting everything set up, learning how to use the app, and researching plenty of fun ways to try the Lovense Lush 2 it was physically time to get down to business. I had tested all of the pre-programmed modes and had my phone in hand ready to get right into it.
As per the recommendations, I applied my preferred lubrication to the bulb for easy and comfortable insertion, and with the flick of a button on my phone, I was off to the races.
Let me just say, it’s probably the fastest I’ve climaxed in quite a while, and I was in love! The sound was even more of a shocker; you could hardly hear the device!
After using the product, I was excited to tell my husband about it and get him in on the action. I considered the many ways we could use the product to enhance our sex life, like wearing the device out in public, giving him control to make patterns, and even have the Lush 2 sync with noises or songs he chooses.
The fact that this small device was smart enough to create these endless possibilities for use is what has kept me so enthralled and boasting about it for all of my friends.
I had no problem reaching an amazing climax with the Lush 2 using it internally as it is designed. However, I was curious if the vibrations would be as satisfying using it for clitoral stimulation. The easy answer is – oh, yes!
Though it is a bit louder the Lush 2 is not as quiet when used externally. You can spend time moving through the different speeds and patterns until I found just the right setting for me.
The bulb size does make getting direct pressure on the clitoris a little bit complicated, but the vibration intensity covers a larger area making all over stimulation a very good thing.
Overall, I do not see myself using the Lush 2 as a clitoral vibrator often, though, for those times when you just must have some external vibrations too, it works well enough. You can feel a little bit of vibration on the antenna end, though not near enough for climax, at least in my case.
Common Questions about the Lush 2
I have noticed a few common questions while surfing the internet in regard to using the Lovense Lush 2, so I wanted to try and help new users, or those interested in purchasing the product by answering their questions.
1-Can Gay Couples Use The Lovense Lush?
I’ve browsed several forums for mentions of gay couples using the Lovense Lush, and I’m finding quite a few. Lesbian couples especially love to use this product in the bedroom or for long-distance play.
The product does not discriminate, and you might be happy to know that for gay male couples Lovense offers a few toys specifically for men.
What I’ve found from several forums is that gay couples were using the Lovense Lush before realizing their product line offered options for them specifically. Which leads me to my next topic, of course:
2-Can The Lush Be Used For Anal Play?
If we’re honest, obviously it can be used for anal play, almost any toy can be. Does it mean it’s superb at doing the job? Probably not. Lovense has designed two product lines that are made with maximum prostate stimulation in mind, and I want to go over those in this article.
You see, Lovense isn’t just about the ladies, and whether or not you’re a gay couple or a straight male who is interested in anal play, these products could be suitable for you.
The Lovense Hush
The Lovense Hush is a vibrating butt-plug that like all Lovense products can be controlled through the Lovense application. Male, female, gay, straight, whatever way you play, so long as you love anal play, this product is ideally made with you in mind.
It packs the same punch and features of the Lovense Lush 2, with unlimited vibration patterns, music syncing, long-distance play, cam control, and sound-activated vibrations. I think what stands out most about the Lovense hush is that it has a specially designed neck and base that ensures easy removal, but also security to keep it in position during use.
The Lovense Hush comes in two insertable length sizes of either 1.5 inches or 1.75 inches. It has a battery life that extends for two simultaneous hours of fun and is extremely quiet, making it great for use in public settings.
Lovense goes so far as to claim their vibrating butt plug has the most powerful vibrations on the market and that it is guaranteed to find your sweet spot. While I’m not an expert on the Lovense
Hush as I have yet to use it, if it even remotely compares to what I’m finding with the quality designed Lovense Lush 2, it’s more than likely a product anyone can get behind.
Amazon reviewers also agree it’s a pretty robust butt-plug design:
“Liked this so much we ordered the bigger version and the edge. The user interface could use a lot of work but once you get it going you’ll forget about it in the bliss that the vibrator is delivering. The battery life seems to be pretty good, used it for over an hour with no issues. It is reasonably quiet but you couldn’t wear it in a quiet place like a restaurant.” – RDouglas July 28th, 2018
“This has got to be the most stimulating product of its kind on the market so far! I bought this with fingers crossed hoping it was not a cheap Adult toy. OMG! It lives up to everything the Lovense company says it will. The instructions in the box are not too clear in the manual, but you can use the online user manual for more up to date instructions.
The Tech support is awesome, fast in a reply back, and extremely polite with my questions. I live in New York and gave control via the App to a friend who is in Tennessee who can control it from there while I am plugged into it. Never know when or at what time, or where I will be wearing it in a store shopping, a business meeting, walking around, or sleeping’ as he controls the effects as to when he wants to turn it on, control it and torment me to the point of ecstasy and back.
I definitely would recommend this Lovense Hush toy to anyone looking for a pleasurable experience.” – JoeG65 February 19th, 2018
On Lovense’s website, the Edge is marketed as the world’s first adjustable prostate massager. The head of this toy is completely adjustable to make sure that it hits the right spot depending on the man using it. Check out this youtube video demonstrating how the Lovense Edge can be adjusted but remain stable.
Again, like all Lovense toys, the Edge can be controlled using the smartphone application. You can enjoy endless hours solo, or with a partner creating mind-blowing and satisfying vibration patterns and intensities.
Another bonus is that there are dual vibrators on this product. Not only is there a vibrating head, but the base also vibrates for maximum pleasure.
This product, like the others, is made of 100% body-safe silicone materials, it’s waterproof, easy to clean, and comes with a USB charging cable.
Amazon reviewers had a lot to say about this product:
Get ready for a great ride! Adjustability is great. The remote control is great and I like their presets, but -ahem- the pulse setting is best for me. Best I’ve ever had, smooth, easy to insert and use. Easy to charge, too, and cleanup is fantastic.” – Malvie August 30th, 2018
“Great anal vibrating toy compared to Lovense Hush! The 2 vibrating heads, (one inside and one out) give much more sensation. Definitely hits the spot.” – Lili February 25th, 2018
“I wasn’t sure how it would feel but my rolled-up eyes says enough. It feels amazing and the ability to get, make and have someone else create how it feels is great and never boring.” – David R. June 27th, 2019
Lovense Lush Alternatives
Are there alternatives on the market to Lovense Lush? Yes, there are a few popular alternatives that directly compete with the Lovense Lush that you can try out if you feel so inclined. One such alternative is a top contender. Let’s go over their product and the advantages/disadvantages.
The We-Vibe Sync is notably the top contender for wearable vibration devices. This device, which is also paired with a smartphone app called we-connect, gives the user or their partner the ability to control the device whenever and wherever by using their phone as opposed to a remote control. Although the unit does come with a remote if you would rather use it.
What I think interests me most about the We-Vibe Sync is that it is designed with dual stimulation, whereas the Lovense Lush is not. It will stimulate both the G-Spot and the Clitoris at the same time, which for a lot of women is much-needed stimulation to climax from the device alone.
This device is also completely adjustable so that you can make sure it’s hitting your G-spot just right and with ease. The Lovense Lush 2 has 7 modes, but the We-Vibe Sync boasts 10 pre-programmed modes:
Other than the dual stimulation and additional pre-programmed features, these two products are one and the same. They are rechargeable by USB, waterproof, and manufactured with body-safe top quality silicone that is free from phthalates, BPA, and no latex.
So how do they compare on price? The We-Vibe Sync is $70 more expensive than the Lovense Lush 2! Check out the We-Vibe Sync’s official site.
It’s no wonder that although these two products directly compete, the top choice still seems to be the Lovense Lush 2. Although the We-Vibe Sync might offer a few more features, it’s hard for me to justify the added price tag. If you’re shopping for pleasure on a budget, the We-Vibe Sync might just not be for you.
In terms of reviews, in general, the Lovense Lush 2 holds half a star rating over the We-Vibe Sync which sits at a solid 3 out of 5 stars on Amazon. So what are the most talked-about issues with the We-Vibe Sync?
- Weak vibrations
- Poor app and remote connectivity
- The app has many bugs and tends to crash for some users
But, what’s good? Let’s be completely unbiased here and feature some of the great reviews for the We-Vibe Sync since not everyone has the same opinion of the product.
“I saw this in a store and the girl behind the counter seemed genuinely to endorse this product, so I decided to give it a try. It has multiple settings for both sides of the product to fit each person’s needs. It takes a little getting used to but it is certainly enjoyable. The clean up is not bad, just a little soap and water and it is ready to go back in its hand dandy charging case.” – Steven December 11th, 2018
“Exceptionally great product very easy to get both side positioned for him and her. It is super easy to charge and the charge lasts for days without losing strength. Easy to clean completely waterproof don’t think about it just get it.” – The blue Dino February 24th, 2019
“Ordered this after hearing about it from friends. The remote works like a dream. The connectivity with your phone to the device can be trying at times… but when it is connected… Oh god, it’s fun to tease her with the pre-programmed modes and then create my own. I definitely recommend this.” – Joseph Young April 11th, 2018
“My husband and I got this one for fun and it has been amazing to play around with. It doesn’t make any noise and is fully adjustable to what you want. The app works great and has a ton of different options. Before you buy it, make sure you know what you’re getting. We asked a lot of questions before and I’m so grateful for that.” – AJones January 2nd, 2018
The Lovense Lush 2 is easily one of the coolest new sex toys out there, and when connected to the Lovense App, it offers nearly unlimited possibilities for both solo and partner play, even from halfway around the world if necessary.
The Lovense Lush 2 is comfortable, quiet, and most discreet, making it a great option for public play if that tickles your fancy. However, the best feature, by far is the ability for long-distance control. Lovense leads the field in making intimate play between LDR (long-distance relationship) couples easier and more connected than ever.
Finally, as you may already guess, I would recommend anyone interested in trying a remote/app-controlled G-spot vibrator, give the Lovense Lush 2 a chance, you will not be disappointed. All Lovense products are made of high-quality materials and designed for maximum comfort.
