If you're in the mood for a little excitement, but can't physically be with your partner right now, why not gift yourselves with one or two of the
best Bluetooth controlled sex toys? These nifty gadgets are becoming the go-to answer for couples who want to feel close — and keep their sex life alive — even while far apart.
That said, "Bluetooth controlled toy" does give off a slightly odd, sex-robot vibe. So if you haven't tried one just yet, let's talk a little bit about how they work. According to
Angela Watson, a sex therapist who reviews sex toys with her husband at Doctor Climax, you navigate them via an app, where you and your partner can choose from different vibration speeds, sync to music, and have fun with various other futuristic options.
sex toys are controlled via a smartphone app, Watson tells Bustle, you can hand the job over to your partner, so they can help you orgasm — almost like they were actually by your side. For an extra layer of sexiness, don't forget to call on a video chat, so you can see each other's facial expressions. It'll be the perfect way to keep things spicy — and help you feel more connected — even when you're in a long-distance relationship.
Ready to vibrate each other from your respective apartments? Then check out the
top-tier toy recommendations below. 1 Lovense Max + Nora Combo
These two sex toys connect through Bluetooth or WiFi, Watson says, and can be controlled via an app or by moving the opposing toy.
In other words, the vibration of the Max is affected by the movement speed and vibration of the Nora, while the rotating motion and vibration of the Nora can be controlled by the speed of thrusting into the Max.
The Nora is a rabbit-style vibrator, which Nora says does a fantastic job of
stimulating your clit and g-spot at the same time. 2 Lovense Lush 2
If you want a stronger vibration, Watson says, go for the Lush 2. It's something you can use by yourself, discreetly out in public — which could be fun the next time your partner visits — or from afar via
the Lovense app.
It features unlimited vibration patterns, sound activated vibrations, and you can even sync it to music. How fun is that?
3 Kiiroo Onyx 2 + Pearl 2 Combo
The Kiiroo Onyx 2 is one of the most popular automatic masturbators, Watson says. It features 10 rings inside the toy that contract and expand to give the sensation of a blowjob, for those with a penis. You can even sync it to pornographic content, she says, to mimic what's being performed within a particular video.
Meanwhile, the Pearl 2 is a standard vibrator, which is fun to use 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 feel like your partner is right there with you.
