Now that we know more about the Lovense Max 2 specifications, let’s get into the features. There is plenty to unpack about what makes this male masturbator so special.

Overall performance

There is a reason we chose to review the Lovense Max 2. It is one of the most sophisticated male masturbators available. You can actually use it completely hands-free, which is pretty revolutionary.

Max vs Max 2

While the original Max toy was great, the Max 2 is definitely an upgrade. One of the biggest changes was the inclusion of 360-degree contractions.

The vibrator was also redesigned so that the charging process became easier and the overall battery life is longer.

The last change is that there is now the option of purchasing a vagina opening. While you still need to purchase it separately, it’s a nice option for those who want a more realistic experience.

How it works

The Lovense Max 2 is essentially a penis sleeve. The outside of the device is a hard plastic to keep its shape but inside is a pliable sleeve that is made to mimic the texture of a vagina. This inner sleeve has a gel-like consistency to it so it can accommodate penises of all sizes and girths.

Once you insert your penis, you can then use manual movements to control your simulation or you can turn on the vibrator for more intense pleasure.

If you choose to use the vibrator, it works through your smartphone. You will need to download an app that is very simple to use. This app can actually control the Lovense Max 2 anywhere in the world, so if you have a partner who lives in another country or who is traveling, you can keep your connection alive but having them control your sensations.


Lovense Max 2 has a simple design. The plastic is of high quality and is white in color. However, if you want a more realistic design, you can actually purchase a vagina sleeve. This neutral, flesh-colored sleeve includes the labia and opening of a vagina. You can insert your Lovense Max 2 into the vagina sleeve for a more realistic experience.

It does cost extra, though, so you will have to factor this into the price. However, you can always test the Lovense Max 2 out on its own and decide to purchase the vagina sleeve on its own at a later time.

Vibration technology

Unlike manual male masturbators, where you still need to do a lot of the work yourself, the Lovense Max 2 offers amazing vibration technology.

Instead of a small area that vibrates, the Lovense Max 2 will actually provide 360-degree contractions, to mimic the real-life contractions a woman makes with her vagina. You will be able to feel these contractions the whole length and diameter of the masturbator.

Furthermore, the vibration technology extends the entire length of the Lovense Max 2. Some men are endowed with lengthy penises and it isn’t fair if the vibration setting is only at the opening of the toy. With the Lovense Max 2, you will be able to feel the vibrations from the base of your penis to the very tip.

Number of patterns

There are seven different patterns to choose from with the Lovense Max 2. Some are basic, such as Low, Medium, and High. Others are meant to really draw out your orgasm and tease you senseless. The Fireworks vibration brings you close to a climax before dropping right off, only to start climbing yet again. The Earthquake is another intense setting. It steadily increases the vibration speed, carrying you towards bliss before ending abruptly. While maddening, these settings will definitely leave you wanting so much more.

In particular, the vibration patterns are perfect if your partner is controlling your pleasure. This way they can tease you and tempt you from afar.

In addition to the number of patterns, there are three contraction settings. These include Subtle, Mild, and Deep. You can pair any of the contraction settings with any of the vibration settings.


The controls for the Lovense Max 2 are all made via your smartphone. The app is easy to download and is very simple to use. The design is also nice, as it includes a fun pink and blue coloring. It does not take long to get used to the app and as everyone has their smartphone nearby, using it shouldn’t be a problem.

The only negative aspect of having to use your smartphone is that you don’t want to be interrupted while using your Lovense Max 2. There’s nothing more annoying than trying to change the setting only to have an incoming call from your Mom. Best to put your phone on silent mode first.

Wireless functions

The Lovense Max 2 is fully wireless. It uses Bluetooth technology that is easy to sync with your smartphone. Simply pair the two and you are good to go.

The wireless function is the leading reason why this is such an innovative product. Because you use a smartphone to control it, your partner can be in charge of the settings, even if they are in an entirely different country.

Inner length and diameter

When it comes to the inner length of the Lovense Max 2, it measures 6.25 inches. This is plenty of room, as the average erect penis is around 5 inches. However, if you are someone who is above average, you may need to re-think your toy plans if it simply isn’t long enough for you.

As for the diameter, the inner sleeve measures 3.33 inches. The good part of this measurement is that the inner sleeve is flexible so can accommodate wider or thinner penises. However, there were a few comments that insertion was a bit tight. Again, if you have a thicker girth, this may not be the best toy for your specifications.

Noise level

Unfortunately, the Lovense Max 2 can get a bit noisy. While the vibrations aren’t too bad, the contraction settings, especially the more intense ones, can be quite loud. Furthermore, there are no workarounds to the noise issue. If you want to use a full range of controls, you will need to accept the sound issues.

The only positive in this is that most people are accepting of a bit of noise if it means more pleasure. Simply make sure no one is home, close your door, and turn on some music.


According to Lovense, all of their products are 100% body-safe. There are no phthalates or harmful chemicals, so you don’t need to worry, especially as you will be using their toys on the most sensitive parts of your body.

The Lovense Max 2 itself is made from ABS plastic. This is very durable and won’t crack or become discolored. It is also made from TPE which creates a multi-sensational feeling. The inner sleeve has TPE which is why it so closely mimics the feel of a real vagina.


The Lovense Max 2 does not come with any accessories. You get the case, the attached inner sleeve, and that is it. However, if you want a more realistic experience, you can purchase a separate vagina sleeve. This works specifically with the Max 2, so you can fit it over the masturbator. The outside then looks like the opening of a vagina.

While it’s not really an accessory, one feature worth mentioning is the adjustable air vent. This feature is used to control the suction in the Lovense Max 2. What’s great is that you are in control of how much suction there. To do so, simply turn the air vent on the bottom until it provides the right amount of pressure. It might take a bit of trial and error to find the setting you enjoy the most. And, if you find that there is just too much pressure, there is even a quick air release that instantly relieves pressure, so you never have to feel discomfort.


Unfortunately, the Lovense Max 2 is not waterproof. While it can handle water when it is being cleaned, it cannot be used in the shower.

Cleaning easiness

The Lovense Max 2 is like most other male masturbators. While it isn’t hard to clean, it can be a bit annoying to do so. The main thing to remember is that you can’t use soap on the inner sleeve material. This will distort the material and cause it to break down.

After each session, you need to clean your Lovense Max 2. While it doesn’t have to be done the second after you finished, you shouldn’t wait too long. Lube and cum can harden and make it more difficult to properly clean your toy.

The inner sleeve should be removed and washed separately. As well, the air pump vent on the bottom of the Lovense Max 2 should be closed when you wash the case.

Use warm water and really rinse your toy. If you want, you can use your fingers to rub inside the sleeve to get all the nooks and crannies.

Once you are satisfied your Lovense Max 2 is clean, leave it to air dry. It needs to be completely dry before packing away. Otherwise, mold and bacteria can set in, ruining your toy.

Store your Lovense Max 2 somewhere at a room temperature setting. It should not be placed anywhere that gets too hot or too cold.

Finally, if it has been a while since you last used it, it’s a good idea to give the Lovense Max 2 a thorough rinse before you use it again, just in case any dirt or dust has gotten into it.

Working and charging time

The Lovense Max 2 comes with a rechargeable battery that can be charged via a USB cord. Start by turning off your toy first and then plug your USB cord into it. The charging time is only 2 hours, so it won’t take much time at all. You will know it is fully charged as the red light that comes on when plugged in will turn off when fully charged.

One important note is that the toy and cable need to be positioned correctly to charge. A red light should appear when it is plugged in. If this doesn’t happen, simply rotate the Lovense Max 2 180 degrees until the light does come on.

Once it is charged, the Lovense Max 2 will last for weeks, if not months. While it is all about how often you use it, you don’t have to worry about charging your toy after every use.


At 1.6 pounds, the Lovense Max 2 isn’t necessarily heavy but this is not a lightweight toy. Technically, its size isn’t too ostentatious and while it can certainly fit into a backpack, it is not the most discrete toy on the market. This is more of a toy meant to be either left at home or packed in a large suitcase.


With your purchase of the Lovense Max 2, you will receive a one-year warranty. This warranty covers the working parts of your toy but will not cover any accidents or damage. However, the inner sleeve of the Lovense Max 2 only has a 90-day warranty that only covers manufacturer defects.

The takeaway from this is that the Lovense Max 2 has some sensitive workings to it and you will want to be gentle with it so it will last as long as possible.

Discreet shipment

We get it. There are some people that don’t live alone and it would be better if you didn’t have to answer embarrassing questions about what is in your package. Lovense understands this, which is why their shipping is very discreet. Your package will be delivered in a plain brown box and does not have its logo in it. Furthermore, inside that box will be another brown box, again with no label. It is only within this second box that you will find the actual packaging and product.

Price tag

The Lovense Max 2 is not a cheap product. It has incredible technology and realistic sensations, so expect to pay a premium price. The Lovense Max 2 retails for just under $200.

While this is undoubtedly a lot, there is some good news. Lovense routinely offers discounts on their website. As long as you don’t need your toy right away, we suggest checking their website periodically until a sale pope up. Sometimes you can even find deals that offer 50% off.

  • Easy to control via smartphone
  • Multiple vibration and contraction settings
  • Can be controlled by your partner
  • Price tag is a bit on the high side
  • May be a bit tight during insertion
  • Clean up is ok but does require a bit of effort


We sincerely hope that our explanation of the features you can expect from the Lovense Max 2 have made you intrigued by this product. Despite its price tag, this male masturbator offers just about everything you could wish for. It has great vibration controls, is easy to use, and the included smartphone app allows you to control the Lovense Max 2 anywhere in the world. Furthermore, if you want to sync up with your partner, it can work with either another Max 2 or the Nora vibrator. After reading our Lovense Max 2, it should be obvious that this is a serious toy to consider.
