My Verdict

I think, at the end of this review, we can say that the Lovense Max 2 is officially boyfriend-approved! While it might not be his number one, go-to solution for every session, the Max 2 is pretty fun to play around with, and perfect for those times that you want some extra sensations, pleasure and pampering. It is a bit more expensive than, say, a Fleshlight, but it also offers a whole lot more!

  3. Don't enjoy vibrations on your penis
  4. Prefer a silicone masturbator

About The Lovense Max 2

The Lovense Max 2 is one of the most famous and well-loved male masturbators out there today! Behind its discreet case lies a soft and squishy sleeve, filled with textured nubs that thrill and delight as they move across your penis. However, that's not all — the Max 2 also offers very powerful and rumbly vibrations across the length of your penis, and has an inflatable inner lining that expands and contracts for a feeling of intense suction. It can be controlled manually, or using the Lovense Remote app, which allows you to customize the vibrations and suction, as well as sync it to music and ambient sounds. You can even hand over control to a partner, wherever they are in the world, and connect the Max 2 to other Lovense toys!

My personal experience with the Lovense Max 2

My Personal Experiences with Lovense Max 2

First off, let me reassure you — while my face might be at the top of this review, this review is still based on first-hand experience of this toy. I gave the Lovense Max 2 to my boyfriend to try out, and he’s reported back to me in detail about his experiences using it. So, don’t worry, this isn’t another review of a penis toy from someone without a penis! With that out of the way, let’s get down to business…

A Beginner’s Perspective

My boyfriend is, in his own words, a bit of a “basic bitch” when it comes to sex toys. While I’ve brought a fair few vibrators to our bedroom to test out for Bedbible, he’s almost a complete newbie to masturbators and other penis toys. I was actually a bit worried that the Lovense Max 2 was going to feel too much like jumping in at the deep end, but he was a champ about it. Firstly, he liked that it was very discreet. With the unassuming case, he said it almost looks “like a smart gadget that would be in your kitchen”. While I’m not sure I totally agree with that assessment, it definitely doesn’t look like a sex toy until you get close. Then, after trying it out a few times (and doing some Googling), he found out how to adjust the vibrations and tightness, and agreed that it was a whole lot better than just using your hand!

It’s a Powerhouse!

The motor in the Lovense Max 2 is powerful, to say the least. The vibrations aren’t concentrated on one end — you can feel them all along your penis, and they’re extremely rumbly. While some may truly love that, he found them a bit overwhelming at times. In fact, he told me that he had to turn them off when nearing climax. However, this is where it can get tricky, as you have to either cycle through all the modes or press and hold the button to turn off the vibrations, which he felt was a bit distracting. It’s the same for the suction function, though there is a button at the bottom that quickly releases the air from the inner tube if you need it.

Is It Worth It?

Before we answer that, perhaps a better question to ask is: how do you want your masturbation sessions to be? If you’re interested in upgrading your current setup, whether that be your hand or another masturbator like a Fleshlight or pocket pussy, the Lovense Max 2 could be exactly what you’re looking for. It’s fun, versatile, and feels pretty amazing! It can take your experience to new heights, and help you really pamper yourself (and your dick). However, if you’re more concerned with efficiency, then be aware that the Max 2 requires a lot more cleaning up than you might be used to. Plus, the learning curve might turn off those who aren’t the most tech-savvy. My boyfriend remarked that, while he thought the app controls were cool, he often felt like it was too much work.

Breaking Down the Design

Lovense Max 2 Breaking Down the Design

The Lovense Max 2 has some great design elements, some bad, and some just a bit weird. The exterior case is made from white plastic with ribs all down its length, which wasn't that appealing straight out of the box, but actually means that it's nice and discreet. With the cap on, there are no clues to what is actually lurking inside. What is inside is a translucent sleeve with a non-anatomical orifice and a bumpy internal texture. Again, this keeps it fairly discreet, but isn't the most exciting to look at. Finally, something that caught my eye is the wavy piece of soft plastic on the top — after reading the user guide, I still have no idea what it's for!

Evaluating the User-Friendliness of the Lovense Max 2

Lovense Max 2 Evaluating the User-Friendliness of the Lovense Max 2

Figuring out how to use the Lovense Max 2 might take some time, depending on your experience with masturbators, and tech in general. The instructions that it comes with are pretty poor, so you might have to do some Googling! Actually using it is as simple as inserting your penis and starting the vibrations and suction, though it might take a while to figure out how to adjust things and what you like. The ribs on the outside can help with gripping it, but the Max 2 might be a little heavy for some to hold. Plus, since you have to press and hold the buttons, one-handed use isn't much of an option anyway. And, finally, the sleeve can be very difficult to get back into the case once you've cleaned it. We had to cover it in cornstarch to help it slide back in.

Quality Verdict

Lovense Max 2 Quality Verdict

Lovense toys can seem a bit of a mystery — they tend to look a bit cheap, but once you get your hands on them, they feel solid and high-quality. The Lovense Max 2 follows this trend, as, while the overall design doesn't feel particularly luxurious, it does look and feel like it's been constructed well and will last a long time. The sleeve is made from TPE, which certainly feels soft and smooth, but is a porous material and will deteriorate over time, just like any Fleshlight sleeve would. In fact, after a few times being removed and turned inside out, there are already some tiny tears appearing in the orifice.

The Lovense Max 2: Budget-Friendly or Overpriced?

While the Lovense Max 2 isn't cheap, it's actually not as expensive as many other, similar products on the market. My boyfriend's personal opinion was that, if he was choosing a toy for himself, he would opt for a cheaper masturbator without all the functions of the Max 2. However, he did admit that he enjoyed having those extra sensations like vibrations and suction, and the idea of having me control it long-distance through the app did give him a twinkle in his eye! If you're looking for a real upgrade from a traditional masturbator, the Lovense Max 2 is a pretty accessible option, price-wise!

The Lovense Max 2: Satisfaction Guaranteed?

Lovense Max 2 The Lovense Max 2: Satisfaction Guaranteed?

Of course, I'm giving you my boyfriend's experience here. The short version is: the Lovense Max 2 feels pretty amazing! He enjoyed the sleeve with its nubs and bumps, and found the material nicely soft and squishy. He even said that the sleeve worked great with none of the other functions turned on! The vibrations are incredibly rumbly and really powerful — so powerful, in fact, that he stuck to the lower speeds to avoid getting overwhelmed. When it comes to realism, the suction does a lot of the work. If you want it to feel tighter or looser, you can adjust it, but of course, a human vagina doesn't expand and contract in quite the same way!

A Closer Look at the Lovense Max 2’s Packaging

Lovense Max 2 A Closer Look at the Lovense Max 2’s Packaging

The packaging of the Lovense Max 2 is like all Lovense packaging: underwhelming. It's a white box with a picture of the Max 2 on the front, and generally feels a bit utilitarian and cheap. However, since the Max 2 comes with a cap to protect the sleeve (and your modesty), there's no need to keep the box. Inside the box, as well as the toy itself, you'll find some instructions and a USB charger.

The Lovense Max 2’s Material and Care

Lovense Max 2 The Lovense Max 2’s Material and Care

The case of the Lovense Max 2 is made from ABS plastic, and the sleeve is made from TPE (thermoplastic elastomer). I recommend looking up how to clean the Max 2 before doing anything, as it's not the simplest of processes. Since the case is not fully waterproof, you shouldn't submerge it in water when cleaning. Instead, remove the inner sleeve and rinse that thoroughly with water (Lovense recommend not using soap to avoid degrading the material) before leaving to dry on a clean towel. Then, make sure the Air Pump Vent is closed on the bottom of the case before rinsing or wiping the outside and inside and leaving to dry thoroughly (this can take a long time). When everything is dry, replace the sleeve and put on the cap. If the sleeve feels sticky or difficult to put back in, you can apply a thin coat of cornstarch to the surface, inside and out.

Special feature

Lovense Max 2 Special feature

One of the biggest draws of the Lovense Max 2 is its app controls. The Lovense Remote app unlocks a whole load of functions on top of those you can find using the buttons on the case, including custom vibration and suction levels, custom patterns, syncing to music and ambient sounds, and even creating alarms! Link up with a partner over WiFi and they can do all that, too! If they have a Lovense toy of their own, you can sync it up with the Max 2 and control the functions of both simultaneously using the app sliders. Finally, and maybe most impressively, if your partner has another Max 2, original Max or the Lovense Nora, you can connect them so that your movements control the functions of the other’s toy! In fact, we’ve written a whole blog post about connecting the Max 2 and Nora here.
