Lovense Nora & Max
Review date: 11/01/2018
In a world where long distance relationships are common, long distance toys for intimacy are keeping up. The Nora vibrator and the Max male masturbator connect to an app via Bluetooth. Once connected, couples can sync with each other's toys, for a two-way interactive experience. When the Nora moves, the Max responds. When the Max moves, the Nora responds. The speed of your movements is felt on the other end by your partner, and vise versa. And to be inclusive of all couples, two Noras can sync together, two Maxes can sync together, as well a Nora and a Max syncing together. Couples can also control each other's toys with a smartphone or tablet. You can even record an interactive two-way session and play it back for those times when your partner isn't able to join in. Neat.
What could happen if something goes wrong
Lovense does a seemingly pretty good job with privacy and security currently, although one of their devices--the Hush--has been hacked in the past. One thing that has us worried is when a user downloads the Lovense Remote app and signs up to use it, the app doesn't requires a strong password. We signed up using 123456. This means nearly anyone good at guessing or cracking weak passwords could sign in to your account and remotely access your toys or see your activity.
