Angela Watson, a sex therapist who reviews sex toys with her husband at
Doctor Climax, tells Bustle According to Angela Watson, a sex therapist who reviews sex toys with her husband at Doctor Climax, bluetooth toys are controlled via smartphone or tablet, and have much more control over features, like the speed of vibration and the settings.
If you've ever struggled with the speed button on a sex toy, you'll know the unique pain of things not working as planned. Smartphone apps typically give the user much more control and allow you to have a more tailored masturbation experience.
sex toys are controlled typically via smartphone app," Watson tells Bustle, "anyone with a smartphone can control your toy, it doesn't have to be you. This allows you to hand the controls over to a partner and allows them to control your orgasm." It's perfect for keeping things hot when you're in a long-distance relationship.

The Lovense Max + Nora Combo
"These two toys are great on their own but where they really shine is while connected with one another," Watson says. They connect via Bluetooth or Wifi and can be controlled via app or they can also be controlled by moving the opposing toy.
The airpumps and vibration of the Max can be controlled by the moving speed and vibration speed of the Nora, while the rotating motion and vibration of the Nora can be controlled by the speed of thrusting into the Max.
"The Lovense Nora is a rabbit vibrator which is quite popular and has many raving fans," Watson says. "It's an automatic masturbator which uses air pumps to stimulate a penis."
As far as rabbit vibrators go for oneself, the Nora is Watson's favorite. It does a
fantastic job of stimulating your clit and g-spot at the same time, which feels, she says, "tremendous."
The Lush 2 has a stronger vibration, making it all the better. According to Watson, this bluetooth egg vibrator improves on many of the biggest complaints users had of the original model, like not having a strong enough vibration. "The Lush 2 is a wearable vibrator, and the Lovense app makes controlling the toy very easy," Watson says.
The Kiiroo Onyx 2 + Pearl 2 Combo
The Kiiroo Onyx 2 is one of the most popular automatic masturbators, Watson says.
It has 10 rings inside the toy that contract and expand to mimic the sensation of a blowjob for those with a penis.
"The toy can sync to pornographic content to mimic what's being performed within a particular video," Watson says.
The Pearl 2 is a standard bluetooth vibrator, which is great on its own but much better when used in conjunction with the Onyx 2, Watson says. The Pearl 2 can be stroked to control the Onyx 2, and the Onyx 2 can also be used to control the Pearl 2. It'll be like you're there with one another.
