Are you ready to dive in? Keep reading.
Dutch sex toy manufacturer Kiiroo was established in 2013 and is bound to appear in your search when you start looking around for interactive sex toys, and deservedly so. Kiiroo is a brand that prides itself on being at the very forefront of sex toy innovation.
Kiiroo is the Greek word for “Master,” and the vision behind it is to fuse social network and sex tech for the purpose of providing users with an immersive 3D experience when having virtual or online sex.
All of Kiiroo’s devices are equipped with touch-sensitive buttons and pads that allow users to feel and communicate device to deceive. All of Kiiroo’s products pair with with any other product in their catalogue – including future products – which allows for all sorts of sexual constellations depending on the user’s personal preference. Because all of the devices are touch-sensitive, users can feel their partner’s touch replicated through exceptionally realistic sensations.
Kiiroo toys all come with many different modes, including manual mode and interactive mode, depending on what kind of sexual experience you happen to be in the mood for. Thanks to the integrated buttons on the devices as well as app control, its easy to switch between modes and between virtual and human interaction.
Because Kiiroo sex toys all pair with a wide array of visual content including 2D porn, virtual reality porn, cam sites and other Kiiroo users’ devices, these toys are suitable for both solo and partner play.
It could be argued that Singapore-based teledildonics manufacturer Lovense is Kiiroo’s only true contender. Established in 2013, Lovense has garnered a well-earned reputation for being one of the forerunners in the sex tech space.
Much like Kiiroo, Lovense is dedicated to producing high-quality, high-tech, interactive and long-distance sex toys that continually push the barriers of what’s currently possible. Lovense product are suitable for both couples and solo users, and all of the toys are Bluetooth enabled and can be synched with either other Lovense toys or with visual content.
Lovense boasts an extensive and ever growing range of both female and male masturbators, as well as unisex toys such as the Lovense Hush, a vibrating butt plug that comes in several different sizes depending on your personal preferences.
The Kiiroo catalogue vs the Lovense catalogue
Lovense and Kiiroo can both boast an extensive and fast growing range of interactive toys.
Overall, Lovense has a slightly larger and more diverse catalogue than Kiiroo. Whereas Kiiroo places the emphasis on female and male masturbators with just a few other products, including the Kiiroo OhMiBod Vibrating Butt Plug and the Kiiroo Esca 2 Vibrating Egg, Lovense has a more expansive catalogue which includes vibrating butt plugs in a variety of different sizes, vibrating cock rings, a prostate massager and a mini bullet vibrator.
But there’s more to a product catalogue than simply a variety of choice. Let us take a look at some of the best sex toys from both manufacturers.
Best automatic male masturbator
Lovense and Kiiroo both have some impressive and innovate automatic male masturbators on offer. But if we have to name just one as the best automatic male masturbator, the Kiiroo Onyx+ has got to be it.
The Kiiroo Onyx+ is truly a pleasure whether you are a man flying solo or the male partner in a long-distance relationship.
The Onyx+ connects with the rest of Kiiroo’s line of Bluetooth-enabled products as well as with a huge variety of both 2D and Virtual Reality porn as well as cam sites.
The Onyx+ is sexy right down to its appearance, which is sleek and glossy black. On the inside, the Onyx+ is equipped with ten contracting rings. This little devil of a machine has several different stimulation modes ranging from manual to interactive. Thanks to the integrated touch-sensitive buttons, it’s easy to switch back and forth between different vibration modes and settings without feeling interrupted in your play.
The Onyx+ is powered by a Lithium-ion Polymer battery and can reach impressive and frankly mind-blowing stroking speeds of up to 140 pumps per minute
Like all other products in the Kiiroo lineup, the Kiiroo Onyx+ is made from hypoallergenic materials. We recommend using it with any water-based lube to achieve the best glide and to preserve your device for as long as possible.
When you are using the Onyx+ with a partner’s device, you’ll be able to record both audio and movements using the Kiiroo app on the phone – all completely discretely, fully encrypted and without the app tracking your activities. You’ll then be able to playback the session you just enjoyed whenever you like! The playback feature is particularly wonderful if your sexual partner happens to be in a different timezone from you or if the two of you are otherwise struggling to find enough time to meet and connect at the same time.
As already mentioned, any of Kiiroo’s products can be paired with any other Kiiroo sex toy from the existing catalogue – as well as with any future Kiiroo toy yet to be developed and released. In other words, it’s up to you whether you choose to interact with male or female lovers via the FeelConnect app.
Lovense Max 2
The Max 2 by Lovense comes in a close second to Kiiroo’s Onyx+ and is by far the best male masturbator that Lovense has to offer.
The Max 2 is a signficant improvement over the original Max, featuring an improved outer shell as well as 360-degree contraction, an improved sensor and a more reliable vibrator.
Like the Onyx+, the Max 2 is equally suitable for both solo and interactive play. In manual mode, the Max 2 lets you control stroking and contraction speeds via the app, and interactive mode the Max 2 you’ll be able to pass the control to your long-distance partner by sending him or her an in-app live request.
In addition to these features, the Lovense Max can be synched to music, porn or other visual or audio content.
Best automatic female masturbator
Now that we’ve looked at the best male masturbator, let us also look at which brand offers the best female sex toy. Like the male sex toys we’ve already covered, female sex toys from both Lovense and Kiiroo can be paired with any other same-brand toy, or with porn or other visual content, exactly as you prefer.
Kiiroo Pearl 2
If what you are looking for is a totally interactive and responsive dildo that is capable of simulating intercourse in real time when synched with a partner’s device or with porn, the Kiiroo Pearl 2 won’t disappoint.
The Kiiroo Pearl 2 comes in matte black or bright purple and measures 8 inches in length and 4.75 inches in width. Despite its relatively compact size, it houses both a powerful motor, nine internal bullet vibrators and five haptic technology rings that expand and contract to mimic the feeling and movements of a real penis.
In manual mode, the Pearl 2 can be controlled with a swipe of your finger in-app, where you can choose between the three different vibration speeds and two different pulsing patterns.
But it’s when the Pearl 2 is paired up with a partner’s Kiiroo sex toy – this could be any sex toy from the Kiiroo range of toys – or with porn, whether 2D or Virtual Reality that the real fun begins.
When your Kiiroo Pearl 2 is connected to another Kiiroo toy through the FeelConnect app, the touch-sensitivity of both devices means that you and your partner will be able to feel each others thrusts and movements as replicated by your respective toys. In other words, you’ll be able to enjoy a realistic experience of having intercourse together, even if you are physically separated by hundreds of miles.
The Kiiroo Pearl 2 can also be connected to porn and can replicated and respond to the action that is happening on the screen or on your VR headset.
Lovense Lush 3
Another contender for best female interactive sex toy is the Lovense Lush 3.
This little device is a surprisingly powerful G-spot stimulator with a bulbous, hug-your-body shape. It’s designed to fit the female anatomy perfectly while sending waves of intense vibration directly to your most erogenous zone.
And of course, the Lovense Lush 3 can be paired up with other Lovense toys via the Lovense app. You can then enjoy couples play from a distance or allow your partner to create completely customized vibration modes. Like other Lovense products, the Lovense Lush 3 can also be synched to music or enabled with voice control for a truly naughty session.
The Lovense Lush 3’s small size makes it discreet enough for public play, if this appeals to you.
Best couple set
We’ve covered the best female and male sex toys specifically, but what are the best combinations of toys? Remember, Kiiroo and Lovense products cannot be paired up with each other – which is one of the reasons why choosing whether to go with Lovense or Kiiroo is so important, before you start building your collection.
In this section of the article, we’ll be looking at which toys seem to complement each other best.
Kiiroo Onyx2 and Pearl2
If you are part of a straight couple in a long-distance relationship, you cannot go wrong wit the Onyx2, or the Onyx+, paired with a Pearl2.
When connected through the Kiiroo FeelConnect app, the Kiiroo Onyx2 and the Kiiroo Pearl2 are capable of recreating and simulating your lover’s touch nearly perfectly, elevating the long-distance sexual pleasure that the two of you are able to experience together to new heights.
Not only is the Kiiroo Onyx2 or Onyx+ one of the most advanced touch-sensitive penis-strokers out there – with partner control enabled, you’ll be able to feel your partner’s touch and desire as they set the vibration speeds and patterns of your device.
The same goes for the Pearl2, which is also app-controlled and allows for full partner control. In other words, when you have control over your partner’s Pearl2 via the app, you’ll be able to control the thrust and vibration patterns of this extremely powerful G spot stimulator.
You can also choose to let your two devices communicate with each other, by replicating and responding to each partner’s device. It’ll feel as though the two of you are really having intercourse, despite the distance between you.
Needless to say, the Onyx2 and the Pearl2 do not necessarily have to be paired up with each other. Both toys can also be synched with any other Kiiroo toy.
Kiiroo Titan and Cliona
Another fabulous option for straight couples is the Kiiroo Titan paired with the Kiiroo Cline. These two innovative sex toys were really made for each other.
Much like the Onyx 2 and the Onyx+, the Kiiroo Titan is a touch-sensitive penis stroker with oodles of customizable settings.
And for women who don’t necessarily want or require internal stimulation, the Cliona is a powerful handheld clitoral stimulator, also powered by touch-sensitive technology.
Like all other products in the Kiiroo catalogue, the the Titan and the Cliona can ne [aired with each other through the FeelConnect app. When connected, both toys are able to replicate and let you feel your partner’s touch through the vibrations of your device – and they’ll feel yours with just as much realism and pleasure. Both devices are equipped with touch-sensitive pads that really take the experience to another level, as you’ll be able to share your pleasure fully with your partner.
If you wish, you’ll be able to let your partner take control of your sex toy by sending him or her a live request through the app. Armed with such power, your partner will then able to control the speed and vibration intensity of your partner’s toy.
And let us not forget to mention that you can also synch you device with thousands of porn videos, both 2D and Virtual Reality.
Lovense Nora and Max 2
If we look to Lovense for a perfect sex toy match, the answer has got to be the Lovense Nora paired with the Lovense Max or Max 2. This particular combo is ideal for partners in long-distance couples wanting to close the distance between them.
The Lovense Max is a powerful male masturbator featuring both vibration and 360 degree contractions that mimic the sensations of real intercourse.
As for the Max’s female sex toy counterpart, the Lovense Nora is a potent rabbit vibrator with a wavy silicone body, a bully head, unlimited custom thrust and vibration patterns, and of course with real-time interactivity. Externally, the shape of the Nora’s ears are shaped and angled to deliver exactly the right amount of target stimulation.
The Lovense Max 2 and the Lovense Nora are both fantastic toys individually, but they are particularly delectable when synched with each other through the app. On that note, the Nora and the Max do not have to be synched with each other – a Nora can just as easily be synched with another Nora, and the Max with another Max.
When your device is synched to your partner’s, the most intense levels of sexual pleasure become available to you. Your two toys are able to respond to each other in real time, thanks to the touch-sensitive technology. You also have the option of both relinquishing and seizing control of your own and your partner’s device, as well as to record and playback sessions whenever you please, or whenever your sexual partner can’t be present at the asme time as you.
Best cock ring
We’ve covered the best toys for females, males and couples. Now let us take a look at some of the other products from both Lovense and Kiiroo, starting with cock rings. Of course, these are male masturbators too, but are less obvious choices than, say, the Kiiroo Onyx+ or the Lovense Max 2.
Lovense DIAMO ONCE
The Lovense Diamo is a powerful and versatile app-controlled cock ring. It provides you with no less than ten different vibration patterns and three different vibration levels. These settings can all be controlled via the Lovense app.
The Lovense Diamo Once is wonderfully discreet, as it is small and very nearly silent. It is also waterproof, allowing you to bring it with you just about anywhere you please, including the shower.
If you are looking for a fun, naughty toy that may even help you build your sexual stamina while receiving intense pleasure, the Lovense Diamo Once is a brilliant choice.
Best butt plug
When it comes to butt plugs, Lovense really outshines Kiiroo through sheer range. When you peruse the Lovense catalogue whether in-person or online, you’ll have plenty of butt plug options to choose from, ranging in size and functionality from beginner to more seasoned pro.
Because butt plugs – and whether you like to use them at all – is largely a matter of personal preference, it’s difficult to pick one butt plug to highlight here. Nevertheless, we have chosen the Lovense Edge 2 because it is powerful and guaranteed to satisfy anyone with a prostate.
Lovense Edge 2
The L0vense Edge 2 is a powerful, adjustable, Blue-tooth enabled prostate massager with unlimited settings and customisable vibration modes, and yes, it is as good as it sounds.
One thing you may have already noticed about Lovense is that they are constantly looking for ways to improve and perfect their products, and the Lovense Edge 2 is a good example of this continual tweaking. The Lovense Edge was already a great toy, but the Lovense Edge 2 features a new adjustable arm which allows you to adjust the toy for more direct and precise p-spot stimulation. The Lovense Edge 2 is also equipped with a seizable bulb above the neck, for easier muscle retention. There is, after all, few things more frustrating than your butt plug falling out while you’re trying to have fun.
The Lovense Edge is powered by not one, but two powerful motors located at either end of the toy. This insures constant irresistible vibration.
Like other Lovense toys, the Lovense Edge 2 can be connected via Bluetooth to the Lovense app, where it can be synched with other Lovense devices.
Most inclusive toys
When it comes to inclusivity, Kiiroo and Lovense are equally inclusive.
Both sex toy manufacturers have ensured that all of their toys can be paired with any other toy in their catalogue, which means the both straight, gay and lesbian couples can enjoy the toys from both Lovense and Kiiroo.
However, when it comes to variety, Lovense has the slightly bigger catalogue with more different sex toys to choose from.
Best overall product quality
When it comes to build quality, Kiiroo and Lovense both use body-safe silicone and other body-safe materials that are free of toxins or anything harmful that shouldn’t go inside the human body.
But safety aside, Kiiroo products generally have a more premium feel to them. There’s something about the design and the quality of the silicone that makes Kiiroo produces seem more premium, which is of course something to consider.
All in all, both brands offer exceptional quality products made from high-quality materials to house the equally impressive tech.
Kiiroo vs Lovense price point
Kiiroo and Lovense are both manufacturers of high-quality, cutting-edge sex tech with price points to match.
Still, with any of the toys mentioned in this article you get so much more than what you pay for, even if the price tag can seem a little steep.
Both Kiiroo and Lovense offer a variety of products at different price points, but generally speaking, Lovense is a little more affordable.
Kiiroo’s FeelConnect app vs the Lovense remote app
If you want to enjoy the full range of sexual pleasure and possibility that both Kiiroo and Lovense toys have to offer, you will have to download and install an app from either brand.
For Kiiroo, the app is called FeelConnect, and for Lovense, you will have to download either BodyChat, Lovense Connect, or Lovense Remote.
Best long-distance partner control
When it comes to taking control of your partner’s device – and permitting them to take charge of yours – it’s a draw between Kiiroo and Lovense. All sex toys by both brands pair rather seamlessly with their respective apps and communicate effortlessly with other Lovense toys or Kiiroo toys.
It is important to note that you cannot pair Lovense and Kiiroo toys together – you’ll have to choose either one or the other, as neither brand enables you to pair with toys from their competitor’s product range.
While all apps for Bluetooth-enabled adult toys promise to record and store as little user data as possible, the BodyChat app has been criticised (and even been the cause for a lawsuit in the US) for eavesdropping a little too much on Lovense users’ private activities such as the times their sex toys have been used as well as the vibration settings.
Having said that, the other two Lovense apps, Lovense Connect and Lovense Remote should be perfectly safe and secure to use, as is the Kiiroo FeelConnect app.
Best overall user experience
All in all, Kiiroo’s FeelConnect scores the highest in terms of overall user experience. Not only is there a wonderful simplicity to Kiiroo Products and users all using the same app, Kiiroo has also never been under suspicion of recording users’ activities without their consent, unlike Lovense.
Security issues aside, Kiiroo’s FeelConnect app and either of the Lovense apps are roughly on par, with FeelConnect offering a few additional features, such as the ability to record and playback previous sessions you’ve had with a long-distance partner or online lover.
Are interactive, long-distance sex toys the key to thriving long-distance relationships?
Interactive sex toys are for everyone, but they have got to be a particular blessing for those who are in long-distance relationships.
The main difficulty in maintaining a thriving and truly connected long-distance relationship is the inability to connect physically with your partner. But with the advent of smart, interactive sex toys, this obstacle is overcome.
Of course, hooking up with your partner virtually isn’t the same as having sex in the flesh, but touch-sensitive tech can make it feel practically as if you are really having sex with your partner. When your device is synched up with your partner’s device, you’ll both be able to feel every stroke and every touch as your two devices adjust their rhythm, speed and vibrations in response to each other.
If you one half of a long-distance couple and are either worried about maintaining intimacy and connection in your relationship or are already experiencing the damage done by physical distance, interactive sex toys are definitely worth trying out before you give up on your relationship.
Lovense and Kiiroo sex toys can both help you close the gap created by physical distance in your intimate relationship. And not only that, of course. If you wish, you’ll also be able to connect with strangers via the FeelConnet app or either of the two Lovense apps we recommend.
Interactive sex toys are for everyone
Of course you don’t have to be in a long-distance relationship in order to take advantage of the pleasures that long-distance sex toys can bring you.
Interactive sex toys can really turn up the heat in any relationship. There’s something sinfully pleasurable and naughty about using sex toys with your partner, and not least letting your partner control your device while you take control of theirs.
Many of the sex toys covered in this article can also easily be incorporated into in-person sex.
Conclusion: Which sex toy manufacturer is better?
Is it possible to reach a final verdict and say whether Kiiroo or Lovense products are definitely and definitively better than what the competitor has to offer?
Unfortunately no. There can be no absolute answer, because whether or not you prefer Kiiroo or Lovense products is going to come down to personal preference.
If what you are after is the highest quality products with a premium feel, then Kiiroo is the answer, and the same conclusion has to be reached if security is your highest priority, purely due to Lovense’s past lawsuit. However, if you want the greatest product selection and variety, Lovense wins by having a bigger catalogue.
Here are a few questions to consider to help you decide for yourself whether to go with Kiiroo or Lovense:
- Is having a large selection of not only female and male masturbators but also cock rings, butt plugs and G spot egg vibrators important to you? Are you (and your partner) likely to keep adding more different sex toys to your collection? If the answer is yes, then Lovense gives you more scope for building a large and varied collection.
- Is privacy and security of great importance to you? While Lovense hasn’t had any recent troubles, there is an existing US lawsuit in which the complainant accuses Lovense of recording personal data via the app. If the mere possibility that Lovense might be recording any of your activities bothers you, then Kiiroo has a more trustworthy reputation.
- Are you looking for the highest quality products with the most premium build and feel? If so, then Kiiroo cannot be beaten.
Whichever teledildonics brand you ultimately decide to go with, the result is guaranteed to be pleasurable!
