Lovehoney x We-Vibe Couple’s Vibrator

The Lovehoney X We-Vibe couples vibrator is a version of we-vibe’s signature product made exclusively for Lovehoney. It has a cheaper price tag than the we-vibe sync or chorus, but it also has less features. You can’t pair it with the we-connect app, and it only has a few settings to play with. The packaging looks like it’s been designed by Lovehoney and is somewhat flimsier than we-vibe’s typical boxes. Also there’s no storage bag. However if you’re interested in trying a C shaped vibrator but want to spend a little less money, it’s a good place to start.

What you get

Inside the box you get the Lovehoney X We-Vibe couples vibrator, a magnetic USB charging cable, a remote control and a small instruction booklet. The packaging is okay if a little flimsy.

Charging up

To charge the Lovehoney X We-Vibe couples vibrator you simply snap the magnetic end of the charger onto the charging point at the top of the vibrator and the other end can go into any USB port. I use a wall plug. When the Lovehoney X We-Vibe couples vibrator is charging a small blue LED will flash just above the charging port. Once it is fully charged the LED will stay solidly on.

Controls and Features

There is a small on button at the top of the Lovehoney X We-Vibe couples vibrator, which if you hold down will turn the vibrations on. If you press the button once it will increase the intensity of the vibrations, keep clicking and you will get to the 6 pattterns. You hold down this single button to turn the Lovehoney X We-Vibe couples vibrator off. You can use this button to control the toy completely but it would be very difficult to find and press the button during sex. So the remote control is vital to enjoying this toy.

One thing I found very frustrating about the instruction booklet is it doesn’t actually tell you how to use the remote control or what each button does. It only tells you how to pair the remote after that you’re kind of on your own. Make sure you have turned the Lovehoney X We-Vibe couples vibrator on using the button on it before you try the remote.

I figured out if you press the up arrow button for 2 secs it turns the Lovehoney X We-Vibe couples vibrator on if you press the down arrow it turns the vibrator off. So far so good.

If you press the right arrow button, it will increase the intensity. If you press the left arrow button, it will decrease the intensity. Once you’ve cycled through all the intensities you will get to the patterns.

If clicked quickly the up arrow button will increase the intensity the down arrow button will decrease the intensity.

I don’t find these controls intuitive at all, I think what’s so confusing about it is they have programmed it with 10 modes, but the first 4 are all constant speed, each more intense than the last, which means it feels like the left/right arrows are changing the intensity at first (which they are) but then up and down also changes the intensity. Are you lost yet? Because I know I am.

Using the Lovehoney x We-Vibe couples vibrator

The first time I used the Lovehoney X We-Vibe couples vibrator I tried it alone, no penis or dildo involved. I wanted to see what its like during masterbation and try out the settings. I don’t really like the phrase “couples vibrator”; you don’t need to be in a couple to enjoy any sex toy, and conversely you can add any sex toy you like to partnered sex. This will work just fine on its own or with a dildo.

It was easy enough to insert into my vagina (the internal arm is small), and the top part did sit nicely on my clit. I tried playing around with the settings. Unfortunately I found that the vibrations weren’t strong enough to bring me to orgasm, even with lots of trying. I like precision for clitoral stimulation, which the Lovehoney X We-Vibe couples vibrator is not designed for. If I don’t have precision I need power, which it doesn’t give me either.

I did find a pattern that felt nice, the vibrations moved from the external motor to the internal motor in a smooth wave. It was great, but only really a tease. I also kept getting confused using the remote and struggled to get back to the setting I liked.

When I used the Lovehoney X We-Vibe couples vibrator during partnered sex, things got worse. I found that it was difficult to get my partner’s penis, or a small dildo, into my vagina at the same time as the Lovehoney X We-Vibe couples vibrator. Once I did achieve it, the external arm over shot my clit and I couldn’t really feel clitoral vibrations, even on the strongest setting. The vibrations from the internal arm did feel better because the toy was being pushed into the front wall of my vagina. However after a few thrusts the Lovehoney X We-Vibe couples vibrator simply popped out. I put it back in and tried again, but with the same result. I then took to holding it in place, but by this point I would have much preferred to be using a different toy. The point of the Lovehoney X We-Vibe couples vibrator is it is meant to be “hands free”.

We had the same popping out problem when using a small dildo. I thought it might be better because the dildos was smaller than the penis, but nope.

Final thoughts

Sex toys don’t always work out for everyone, and unfortunately the Lovehoney X We-Vibe couples vibrator wasn’t a hit for me. The vibrations aren’t strong enough, the controls aren’t obvious enough and it’s not a perfect fit for my anatomy. This is a minor point but I miss we-vibe’s sturdy packaging and the we connect app.

However, it is half the price of the we-vibe chorus, which is top of the range version of this kind of toy. It may work great for some people. Unfortunately I’m just not one of them.
