Lovense Dolce – Test & Review

My Personal Experiences
I’ve always been skeptical of dual vibrators. Anything that was supposed to be able to stimulate me internally while also magically touching my clitoris in the right spot has just never really worked for me up until now. Perhaps my misfortune with the (typically anatomically non-diverse) classic rabbit design had scared me off from the idea of succesful blended orgasms. But I was intrigued to see what this adjustable hands-free device could do for me…
Finding Those Spots!So the adjustable element was important for me and my very specific needs in terms of placement, pressure, and intensity (yes, apparently I have a super picky vulva). I tried out a few different angles, adjusting the two arms either further away from each other or closer together. The mechanism is quite firm, so once you’ve found an angle that works for you, that baby will stay in place. After a while, I was very pleased to find an angle that worked for me and hit all the spots I wanted it to. I have been succesfully convinced that I am not beyond reach of the iconic blended orgasms from dual vibration toys. Even though I felt the need to use my hands to slightly rock the device back and forth when reaching climax, I still feel like design of the bulbs and the sheer force in the vibrations was enough to get me there.
Getting Acquainted With DolceGetting to know the functions of the two buttons on the head itself took a while. I had to learn which button controlled which motor and which ones in turn controlled the levels and patterns. It seems like a bit of a project for only two buttons and I kept accidentally turning off the vibrations in one motor when I wanted to change the pattern or vibration level. That’s why I had a much better time exploring Dolce’s features on the app. I simply downloaded the app, created an account, and connected my device via bluetooth. This way I had an overview of exactly what I was doing. I could combine features, create custom patterns (or use other recommended popular patterns!), and all by the swipe of a finger.
Orgasms Beyond Borders… Or Area Codes, at Least!Of course, I had to test out this special feature of long-distance interactive intimacy. My partner and I don’t live together, so this little activity was great for one of those nights we were apart. I simply turned on the device manually, lubed up and inserted it, and added my partner’s account on the Lovense app. Then he was free to connect to my device and begin a take-over session. We fumbled through this process a bit since none of us had tried the app before. We were wondering if it was even working when I was startled by an intense rumbling. After that confirmation, we had a blast with the level of intimacy and connection we felt despite being nowhere near each other. I can definitely say that distance did not get in the way of hitting all those sweet spots with Dolce, and it was quite nice to relinquish control even when I was alone.
Silky smooth silicone coating the surprisingly weighty body and lightly textured tips on both the head and shaft make for a luxurious experience both internally and externally. Having trouble with dual stimulators like this in the past, I was pleasantly surprised by the design of the Dolce! It is easily adjustable to cater to different anatomies and personal preferences in terms of angle and pressure on both the clitoris and g-spot. The sturdy head provides intense clitoral vibrations while the wide bulb on the insertable shaft puts firm pressure on the g-spot and provides a full sensation. Overall, I'm a fan of the design. Although, it is very... pink. It could be nice with a variety of colors available.
Ease of Use
The Dolce is relatively simple to use but it still took me a few tries to get the hang of it. This vibrator can be controlled by the two buttons on the head itself or via the Lovense App. The two buttons control the two motors in the head and in the shaft along with the different vibration levels and the patterns. So figuring out which button does what and when was challenging in the beginning. I found it much easier (and more fun...) to control the Dolce from the app instead. Here, you can better visualize the features, speeds, patterns etc. You can also access endless other existing patterns on the app or synchronize your vibrations with music!
The weight and material of this toy definitely gave me an initial impression of a good quality product. When I went to use it for the first time, I was pleasantly surprised. Even using the Dolce's light buzzes externally, holding it in my hands and dragging it lightly across my skin, I could feel the power in the motors. During internal use, you can really feel the rumbly quality of the vibrations! Although powerful, the Dolce is not particularly noisy! I probably wouldn't go so far as using it for public play, but it's definitely safe for use if you live with someone you don't want to involve in your masturbatory adventures!
This product is not on the cheaper side of things. But it is not super expensive for the features you're getting either. If you know you like dual stimulation like this, and you want something satisfactory to help you connect intimately with a long-distance partner once in a while (or simply enjoy some solo hands-free action), I would say this is a good investment. The vibrations are powerful, the design is adjustable, and the possibilites that come with this app are almost endless!
I think the vibrations here are impressive. They are powerful, rumbly, and, best of all, aimed for dual stimulation! The external vibrations are held firmly in place by the wide head, the rounded tip pushing the sensations directly onto your clitoris. The internal vibrations really do feel sensationally rumbly. The best part is being able to tailor the experience on the app. Controlling the different levels, speeds, and patterns on both the clitoral vibration and internal vibrations in combination or interchangeably really makes it cater to very specific needs and desires.
The Dolce comes in a sturdy yet compact box with two layers of content. When you first open the cover, the toy is already beautifully displayed with a small box containing the charger. Underneath this layer are the two leaflets: a user manual and a quick setup guide. There's also a small satin drawstring pouch for safe storage of your Dolce. This type of packaging allows you to store your products in their original packaging as the toy itself is readily availabe on the top layer and everything else can be stored underneath. Of course, if you prefer your new toy not to take up too much space, the drawstring pouch can easily store both the toy and its charger!
Materials and care
The Dolce is made of non-porous body-safe silicone. It is waterproof and fully submersible. This makes it very easy to clean. You can use a mild soap and warm water or any kind of sex toy cleaner. Simply rub the toy clean of any residue and rinse throughly with warm water. Be sure to get into all the small ridges and in between the charging pods. These are not particularly difficult to clean but just be sure to be thorough! Make sure your Dolce is comepletely dry before storing it in its drawstring pouch to keep it safe from any dust or lint.
I would say that the Lovense Dolce has two defining features: the adjustability and the app-control. For someone who really knows just how important adjustability is in sex toys, I cannot emphasize how pleased I was to experience a tailor-made placement to more easily acheive a perfectly blended orgasm. The remote app-controlled feature is also real treat. Using the app to control the Dolce is fun and easy for both solo use, to use together, and long-distance. The setup is easy and the pay-off in pleasure, intimacy, and fun is great! The bluetooth connection can be unstable at times, so keep your phone and device close to each other at all times during use.

As thankful as I am for the Lovense Dolce showing me that I am in fact not incapable of receiving satisfactory dual stimulation, I have to admit that it's probably not going to be my go-to toy. The orgasms with the Dolce are pretty amazing, yes, but they're still not super easy for me to achieve. Although, I will continue my journey with Dolce to further explore these sensations. I loved the interactive feature, and had a blast letting my partner control my stimulation, catching me by surprise or teasing me to frustration. We will definitely continue to play with this feature either apart or together around the house.
