Lovense Max Introduction
Oh, what have we here? Another blowjob simulating, long distance toy for couples, you say? The Lovense Max can be paired with the Lovense Nora or be played with solo. The Max shares a lot of features with the Kiiroo Onyx, so I will use it as a comparison throughout this review.
Like the Onyx, the Max was originally designed for long distance couples to help close that intimacy gap that comes with being in that type of a relationship. But it has since evolved also to be used by men who want to play with cam girls or go at it solo with their music.
Also, like the Onyx it is paired to your computer through Bluetooth. But unlike the Onyx it can be controlled with your smartphone, or you can give control to someone else (in the same room with you or far away) with a smartphone.
What is the Lovense Max?
The Lovense Max is another toy for long distance couples that simulates blowjobs. Do not be fooled by that description, though; it can totally be used solo. It connects to your computer or smartphone through the Bluetooth cap and has a variety of options for use.
The sleeve is textured and provides vibrations along with stimulation from the (patent pending) air pump, more on this later. The opening is stretchy, and the website boldly claims that the Lovense Max accommodates up to 95% of penis sizes and shapes. I found it a great fit for myself, but fear that girthier men may not be able to fit into the tight opening comfortably.
It is designed to be used with your smartphone or computer for long distance or solo play. You can even sync the toy with its companion, Nora, or another Max. I did not have another toy to sync it with, so I will not go into details on this feature.
Lovense Max Features
Like the Kiiroo Onyx, the Lovense Max has a lot of features. Some are amazing, while others are lacking. From the ways you can connect it to the type of stimulation the toy provides, you will be surprised at all the bells and whistles packed into this compact toy.
There is a patent pending air pump that creates a blowjob feel and an air vent that creates personalized suction. Using the vibrations along with the air pump waver and ripple along the shaft of your penis. This is a unique take on the blowjob simulation.
The sleeve has a series of bumps. Paired with the vibrations, suction, and air pump mentioned before, this can be a bit overwhelming if you are not used to a lot of texture. If you are not into all the technology stuff I am about to go over; you can go at it solo without connecting the toy to anything. But really, why would you buy this toy if you are not going to use it with something!
There are various ways to use the toy, as I mentioned above. Since it is Bluetooth compatible you can connect the toy to your smartphone and use it as a remote control, let someone else take control, pair it with another Lovense toy, or just go at it without all the technology.
A unique feature of the Lovense Max is the ability to pair it with your Bluetooth and jerk off with your music. You just download the software from the Lovense website, pair your toy with your computer, and feel the music through the toy.
Other features to take note of are:
• Rechargeable – you will not break the bank on batteries.
• Splashproof – you cannot completely submerge the toy, but you can take it in the shower.
• Remote controllable – you can control the vibrations and air pump separately through the app on your phone.
What comes in the box?
The box includes:
• The Lovense Max
• The Bluetooth adapter
• The charging cord
• The user manual
If you are looking for free samples of lube or cleaner, you will not find it here. Because of the tightness of the toy, be sure to add water-based lube to your cart if you do not already have any when ordering this toy.
If you do not have unscented, antibacterial soap, you may also want to add some toy cleaner to your cart. As far as I can tell the Lovense Max is made out of ABS plastic and skin like TPE. While TPE is non-toxic, it is still porous, and you should not use any cleaning supplies on the toy that you would not directly put on your skin.

How to Use the Lovense Max
As I have mentioned various times, there are many ways you can use the Lovense Max. But before you can use it, you must first connect it. The Lovense website features a video that walks you through connecting your Max, but it is pretty simple.
The first step, whether you are pairing with a phone or computer (compatible with both Mac and Windows) is to turn on your device and look for a little green flashing light. The green light means it is ready to pair. Then turn on Bluetooth for the device you are wanting to connect to. Download the app (computer and phone versions are available) and search for your toy. It is much more straight forward than the Kiiroo Onyx.
Once you have your device connected, choose the mode in which you wish to play.
• Bluetooth with music
• Without connecting (use the buttons at the base of the toy
• Smartphone remote
• With another toy
• Have your partner play with the remote
• Long distance love
What Do I Like About The Lovense Max
Options – I like that you have various options on how to use the toy. Remote control, alone, with a partner, paired with another toy, or jerking it to your favorite music.
Rechargeable – Anything rechargeable is automatically going to be a pro in my book. If it has vibrating or moving parts, it should be rechargeable as not to break the bank on batteries. Two hours of charging will give you about two and a half hours of play time.
Splashproof – While you cannot completely submerge the Lovense Max, you can get the outer casing a little damp. This means if you make a mess or your partner is a squirter, you do not have to worry about it completely ruining your toy.
Deep – What it lacks in girth accommodations, it makes up for in length. It has a 6.5 insertable length with an overall length of approximately 7 inches.
Variety – With the nubs, vibrations, and pump you are not left wanting texture with the Lovense Max. The texture paired with the vibrations and unique pump create an experience not found in other toys.
What I Didn’t Like About the Lovense Max
Material – The material is a bit tacky and is not the best. I may just be spoiled on Fleshlights material. After using the toy, you may find that you have a film of slime on your cock.
Can be too tight – The toy is on the tight side. While I had no problem with it, girthier men may find that they cannot get into it. You can contact Lovense, and they will send you a larger sleeve, but the sleeve that comes with it is tight.
Syncing with Music – I love this feature, but unfortunately, it does not pair up with the air pumps, just the vibrations. I would love to see an improvement on this.
Cleaning – One of my pros is that the toy is splashproof. While this is true, you should be careful not to get any water into the inner canal of the plastic part of the toy. If any water gets into this part of the toy, it will be ruined.
Weak Vibrations – Some days this is not a problem, but others the vibrations are not enough to get me off. If you need strong vibrations, this may not be the toy for you. But I would still suggest giving it a try.
My Final Verdict
The Lovense Max costs a pretty penny, and the material is not all that great, but with the variety and options offered in this compact toy, you get what you pay for. You can customize your experience with your phone, pair it with a partner’s toy, or use it with your music. There are a lot of options if you can get over the finicky splashproof ability and if you fit into the opening.
Would I recommend the Max? Absolutely! Be sure to check your size before ordering to ensure you will fit. But it is a unique toy with a one of a kind experience. I hope to see improvements from Lovensense, but until then, I plan to enjoy what they currently have to offer!
