There are a few myths about Lovense going around on the Internet concerning “Lovesense” and OhMiBod Lush.
First, let’s get the facts out of the way.
- “Lovesense” is not a brand. It is a common misspelling of the company name Lovense.
- Lovense is famous for the vibrator product line Lush and Lush 2.
- OhMiBod has many similar products, but the Lush vibrator is not among them.
- In a head-to-head comparison, the Lovense Lush 2 outperforms the Esca 2 on several levels.
In the sex toy industry, there are several similar products going around at any given time, which makes it difficult for the consumer to choose the product that’s best for them.
Let’s take a deeper look at the issue and see what Lovense is really about.
“Lovesense”… Is Not A Brand!
One common mistake people make in trying to learn more about the sex toy company Lovense is misspelling their company name. If you try to Google “Lovesense”, you are not going to find any information about high tech sex toys.
Lovesense is not a brand that actually exists. Lovense is the word you’re looking for.
If you’re interested in checking out Lovense, but you’ve had some issues finding accurate information about them due to this common research mistake, avoid the typo altogether and head straight there to get information directly from the source: Lovense
Lovense Is the Actual Company
Lovense is an award-winning company based out of Hong Kong that produces a wide variety of the most highly advanced sex toys on the market today. The development of their most popular products have been entirely crowdsourced through Indiegogo.
Lovense has received recognition several times in the sex industry in recent years:
- 2017 Award for GLAMOUR Magazine’s “Best of High Tech”
- 2017 AltPorn Award for Best Technology Innovation (Camsense App)
- 2018 XBIZ Europa Award for Progressive Pleasure Products Company of The Year
This company has pioneered the sex toy industry in many ways, marking them as leading innovators in the future design of cybersex.
Specializing in the field of teledildonics, or sex toys that can be connected and synced remotely via a wireless Bluetooth connection and worldwide Internet connection, Lovense’s main focus is fostering intimacy between sexual partners in long-distance relationships as well as spicing up everyday use.
The OhMiBod Lush… Doesn’t Exist!
A company that is often confused with Lovense is actually one of their competitors, a brand called OhMiBod. Those who go to OhMiBod’s website searching for the Lush vibrator will leave disappointed though. The state-of-the-art Lush vibrator does not exist in OhMiBod’s product line.
OhMiBod does have a product called Crush, which contributes to some of the confusion. But the Crush product line is a kegel exerciser, not a mutual pleasure device for couples.
The Original Lush (by Lovense)
Lovense is the originator of the Lush and Lush 2, a line of teledildonic wearable vibrators that can be digitally connected even at long distances. Other Lovense product lines include the following:
OhMiBod Made Their Own Version, Esca
Sometime after Lush was launched, OhMiBod put out their own version of the wearable vibrator called Esca. Esca mimics the Lush 2 in many design aspects, leading to a lot of consumer confusion about the two companies and their respective product lines.
Lovense Lush 2 Versus Esca: Which Is Better?
On their respective official sites, the Esca 2 by OhMiBod and the Lush 2 by Lovense are listed at the exact same price: $119. Since the price difference is not a factor, the comparison then comes down to included features. Here’s a breakdown of how the Lush 2 and the Esca 2 size up.
(from the official online store, $119: Lovense Lush 2)
- 2.5-3 hours of continuous use
- 30 to 45-foot Bluetooth range; worldwide Internet control
- 10 preset patterns
- USB rechargeable
- 100% silicone design
- 1-Year Warranty
A sensation from the moment it was introduced onto the sex toy market, the Lovense Lush 2 was the first wearable vibrator on the market to feature connectivity to Apple Watch. It can also use Bluetooth connectivity with Android, Mac, and Windows PC devices.
At its highest vibration level, it only outputs 45.5 decibels of sound (the noise level equivalent of a distant bird call, or ambient noise in a library). This means that when it’s inserted, it’s practically silent.
(from the official online store, $119: OhMiBod’s Esca 2)
- 25-foot Bluetooth range; worldwide Internet control
- 3 preset patterns
- USB rechargeable
- Silicone and ABS plastic materials
- Only splashproof, not waterproof
- 1-Year Warranty
Comparable in many ways to the Lush 2, the Esca 2 falls short in several categories of use. The Lush 2 is completely waterproof and submersible, whereas the Esca 2 is only advertised as splashproof. Needless to say, it’s an important distinction in the bedroom, especially if you’re involving water play.
The Esca 2 only has three preset patterns to Lush’s ten, and the Lush 2 has a significantly higher Bluetooth range connectivity, getting up to forty feet of local range compared to Esca 2’s twenty-five.
One major difference between the two similar vibrators is in the type of materials used. Lovense uses 100% silicone in the Lush 2, while the Esca 2 is comprised of a silicone and ABS plastic mix. ABS plastic is not as environmentally friendly as silicone and is an objectively cheaper material.
One User, Two Products
Compared to Lush 2’s stated noise level of 45.5 decibels, there were no official numbers available on Esca 2’s sound output, but sex toy reviewers are mixed on the Esca 2.
Felicity at Phallophile Reviews says of the Esca 2’s highest noise/vibration level, “I probably wouldn’t use it in a particularly quiet restaurant.”
On her review of the Lush 2, she had no complaints about the vibrator’s noise level, but plenty of praise for its software team: “Lovense has employed first-rate app developers. The Lovense app is visually appealing and easy to use, with lots of options.”
Battery Life of The Esca Versus the Esca 2
In response to consumer complaints about the poor battery life of the original Esca line, the Esca 2 is advertised as having a higher battery capacity than the original in several online reviews on sex toy review websites.
There are no official numbers given for battery capacity of either Esca iteration. In comparison, Lovense reports the battery capacity of the Lush 2 as 2.5-3 hours.
General buyer feedback is not great on the Esca either. The original Esca has some pretty poor reviews, sitting at 1 out of 5 stars on Amazon. Most of the complaints involve spotty connectivity or low battery life, with one review claiming the Esca only had a battery life of 45 minutes.
That’s pretty poor performance in comparison to the 2.5 to 3-hour capacity of the Lush 2.
Lovense’s buyer reviews for the Lush line tell a different story than Esca. The Lovense Lush 2 has 84 different user reviews sitting at an average 3.8 out of 5 stars on Amazon.
The Final Verdict
While superficially comparable on several levels, at the end of the day the Lush 2 has several features that make it the objectively superior sex toy:
- Better connectivity and range
- Better resistance to water
- Better digital customization
- Better user reviews
- Better battery capacity/storage
- A quieter, more discreet motor
- More environmentally friendly materials
