Lovense Lush 2
Review date: 02/07/2021
This powerful little Bluetooth vibrator is designed to be worn in the bedroom while claiming to be discreet enough to be worn outside of it too. When connected to the Lovense Remote app, the vibrator can be controlled via Bluetooth at close range--up to 20-45 feet--or over long distance through the Internet. You or your partner can control vibration amount, pattern, and intensity through the app. You can even sync your vibrations to music or use the app for hands free solo play. It is USB rechargeable with up to 3 hours of continuous use per charge, so hopefully no worries of it dying at an inopportune moment. And if you're looking to combine sex and fitness, a company recently released a special O-Seat for Peloton bikes that lets you attach your Lush to the seat and ride it and the bike all at the same time. Teledildonic wonders never cease!
