Lovense Edge 2 Review & User Guide: Everything You Need To Know To Make An Informed Decision
This Lovense Edge 2 Review & User Guide is brought to you by Lucas Knight, our Male Sexual Health & Long Distance Intimacy Contributor.
We’re going to do things a little differently when it comes to our review of the Lovense Edge 2.
Rather than just talk about the product, we want to give you a complete ‘before, during and after’ breakdown from the purchase process and unboxing through to using the device and giving our final verdict.
We’ve split up each section so you can choose to read everything or skip to the parts that matter most to you.
If you’re in a rush, here’s our TL;DR review.
Our TL;DR Lovense Edge 2 Customer Review
4.5 out of 5 stars. For $119, the Lovense Edge 2 is a great update to the original. It has better battery life, standby time and a safer magnetic charging port. Beginners & intermediate users will enjoy the slightly smaller max diameter (from 1.41 to 1.38 inches) and how easy it is to connect and control using the Lovense Remote app.
Purchasing, delivery & setup
Most of you know what you’re looking for, that’s why you’re here! But before jumping in we want to quickly touch on how the Edge 2 works for those who may have stumbled across our review.
How the Lovense Edge 2 works
The Edge 2 is a next generation remote controlled prostate massager from the team at Lovense. It utilizes dual vibrating motors in the main arm and base of the device to simultaneously stimulate the prostate and perineum, which can enhance overall pleasure and produce powerful orgasms. You or a long distance partner can control the vibration intensity and patterns via the Lovense Remote App.
If this has peaked your interest, let’s keep moving!
The Purchase Process
Lovense.com was easy to navigate and while I know the checkout and payment process is secure it also looks and feels secure. I didn’t have any hesitations when it came to hitting the buy button.
I received all the necessary successful purchase emails, but the most important email that was sent was for the shipment tracking number.
You can also track the shipment through your account dashboard, which is under the tab ‘My Orders’.
This made it super easy to keep tabs on the delivery and within a few days it was at my front door.
While most if not all adult toy manufacturers provide discreet packaging, it was nice to see Lovense living up to their promise with a boring cardboard enclosure.
Removing the cardboard revealed the Edge 2 box. The shrink wrap was sealed so I knew it hadn’t been tampered with.
Upon opening you’re met with the sleek looking Edge 2, while everything else has been tucked away, creating a cool unboxing experience.
Along with the Edge 2, Lovense has included:
- User manual
- Quick setup guide
- USB charging cable, and
- Storage pouch
One item I would have liked to see included is a single use packet of lubricant. Especially for beginners who may not have any on-hand, so I’d recommend adding Lovense’s water-based lubricant to your cart.
An item the original Edge didn’t have was a storage pouch. It’s a great addition and also made me wonder “what else has changed?”.
Differences Between the Edge & Edge 2
Here are the most important updates:
Original Lovense Edge Dimensions
Lovense Edge 2 Dimensions
- Some users of the original Edge mentioned that the connection would drop out. Lovense has moved the antenna position to produce a better signal.
- The adjustable arm has a smaller max width of 1.38 inches, making it less daunting for beginners.
- A second ‘bulb’ has been included in the new design to better hold it’s position when in use.
- The magnetic charging port brings the Edge 2 into the 21st century while also improving waterproofing.
Overall, these are great improvements. Now it’s time to give it a test drive!
How To Use Your Lovense Edge 2
Before getting started I did two things, and you should too:
- Give your Edge 2 a light clean: Why? Although it’s just come out of the box I did it more for peace of mind. We’ll go over cleaning tips at the end but as you clean, look over every angle of the device to make sure there are no tears in the silicon or other issues.
- Test turning it on: I wanted to make sure it was working. If yours doesn’t turn on, it’s ok, the important thing is that you charge it fully.
The user guide says it should take 100 minutes but I gave it two hours just to make sure. The red charging light was off so I knew it was ready to go!
What’s really cool is that there’s also a battery indicator within the app. Speaking of the app, here’s the connection process we followed.
Connecting Edge 2 to your phone
You can download the Lovense Remote App here.
To be honest, I was expecting the connection instructions to be vague and end up having to lean on the Reddit community.
I’m glad I was wrong.
Lovense’s step-by-step process for connecting the Edge 2 to your phone is easy to follow and simply works.
The only issue I had was that my phone couldn’t find the Edge 2 the first time.
After a minute or so I closed/reopened both the app and device and the connection was successful.
I’d say this was on my end and you’re unlikely to have the same issue.
How to let someone control your Lovense Edge 2
For those of us in long distance relationships who want their partner to control the fun, the process is different but just as easy to set up by following Lovense’s guide.
I originally connected my device without creating an account but to use long distance control you will need to set one up and so will your partner.
With the account set up and Edge 2 paired I sent a ‘friend request’ to my partner’s account. Once accepted I could then see their profile!
From there they sent a ‘Live Control’ request to remotely control the device. They can also use the included patterns, their voice, synced music and even preset alarms.
TIP: When it comes to partner control, it’s important to be open about what you do and don’t like. Especially for beginners, the best advice is to take it slow and start with low vibration modes and simple patterns. Giving your partner free rein might put you off altogether!
Now that we’re connected it’s time for the fun to begin.
How to insert Lovense Edge 2 properly
For those new to prostate massagers it’s important to relax or the fun is going to stop right there. Massaging can help, which will also make it easier to find your P-spot.
When it comes to applying water-based lubricant, don’t be shy! Use a generous amount on yourself and the device. Over time you’ll figure out the necessary amount.
Following Lovense’s instructions I held the base and neck with my left hand while slowly guiding it in with my other thumb and index finger on the insertable arm.
There were some feelings of pressure but no pain so I was relaxed and used the right amount of lubrication.
Once inserted I quickly realised it wasn’t hitting the right spot and that’s where the adjustable neck just makes sense. It was a much easier process than expected and only took a couple of tweaks before we got there.
Finding the prostate is going to differ from person to person, ForHims.com has a general guide to help.
Edge 2 vibration patterns
Before selecting any patterns or vibration levels check out the GIF below, that shows just how powerful the Edge 2 is.
Personally, the highest vibration setting was too much. I quickly went back to the low and mid range settings. I’d suggest starting here and if you want to ‘dance with the devil’ go for it, but you’ve been warned!
When it comes to the Edge 2’s vibration patterns you effectively have an unlimited amount of options, there are:
- Three levels of intensity (low, medium and high)
- Four preset patterns (pulse, wave, fireworks and earthquake)
- Music sync
- Sound activated patterns (voice via phone)
- Create your own vibration patterns, and
- Upload/save vibration patterns from the Lovense community
I really enjoyed the preset pattern, pulse, and syncing to music. But rather than recommend something for you to try, you should go through each and find what vibration patterns suit your tastes.
Another option that extends past vibration patterns is to search through Reddit. There you’ll find hints and tips to getting the most out of the Edge and Edge 2. Take a look at:
TIP: I did find the Edge 2 to be quite loud on certain settings and it was likely being caused by the second vibrating motor in the base. You can turn the intensity level down or completely off, which reduced noise levels significantly.
The end result
To be completely honest, it was daunting at the beginning but turned out to be amazing, it was like nothing I’d experienced before.
We plan to use it for special occasions and will update our review with any tips and tricks that come up.
But we’re not finished here, how you clean and store your Edge 2 is super important.
Cleaning & Storage
How to clean your Lovense Edge 2
It was super easy to clean the Edge 2 for two reasons:
- The silicon casing is non-porous so bacteria and other things can’t be absorbed and only stay on the surface.
- It’s also waterproof, which felt like it made it easier to clean when it was completely under water.
Lovense recommends using warm water and mild soap or an adult toy cleaner.
To be honest, I don’t think a specific toy cleaner is necessary, especially when everyone should have mild soap at home.
I put a couple of drops of antibacterial dish soap into a bucket and then filled it with enough warm water to just submerge the Edge 2. There’s no problem with starting to clean right away, but I decided to let it sit for a minute to warm up and allow the soap to get to work.
I then submerged a cloth and cleaned the Edge 2 thoroughly, I repeat, THOROUGHLY, until I was happy it was clean.
The next step was to rinse it off, check to make sure there were no issues, pat it down with a separate clean cloth and then let it rest for a moment to air dry.
TIP: Once it’s dry, charge it. Let’s be honest, you don’t want to be in a position where it runs out of juice half way through your next session!
Storing safely & properly
Once your Edge 2 has fully recharged place it into the pouch provided by Lovense to keep it from coming into direct contact with other objects.
When storing, make sure it’s in a cool and dry place that wont have large fluctuations in temperature. This is really just a precaution to keep the motor and battery in good working order.
Our choice, the sock draw! It also doubles as a secure (and boring) place away from prying eyes.
Should you buy the Lovense Edge 2? (final thoughts)
In one word?
Whether you’re interested in trying a remote control prostate massager or an experienced user looking for a high-tech option, the Edge 2 is a great option.
Being a second generation model, it has much needed feature upgrades that improve its usability for a wider range of users.
For long distance couples, how the Lovense Remote App allows both of you to interact with ALL of their devices in so many unique ways, makes it a stand out in the industry.
But there are a couple of caveats.
If you don’t necessarily need long distance control, there are cheaper, low tech devices available.
While we don’t think the size should be daunting for beginners. But if it is, a similar device worth looking at that has a smaller max width and long distance control is the Vector by We-Vibe.
