Anyone who’s been in a long distance relationship or had a partner who traveled a lot knows that keeping intimacy alive can be difficult.

Let’s face it:

Mutual masturbation over the phone is just not the same as having a truly intimate experience with each other.

Fortunately, technology is catching up to our needs.

Until recently, options were pretty limited for those of us who enjoy anal stimulation during sexy time.

But now there’s a toy option that allows you to maintain a sexual relationship with your partner even when you are far away, and even when you are in the mood for anal pleasure.

Allow me to share what I learned about the Lovense Hush, a remote controlled vibrating butt plug…

Let’s Talk About Anal Sensations…

anal sex guide

You may feel a bit nervous about the idea of putting something in your butt.

But don’t be, seriously.

As a practising nurse, I can tell you that anal play is completely safe as long as you do it right.

So here’s my quick list of dos and don’ts:

Do:

  • Start small until your anus gets used to penetration.
  • Warm up by massaging the anus with a finger or two before inserting toys.
  • Use plenty of lube.
  • Listen to your body: Everyone has different physical limits at the beginning of anal play.

Do Not:

  • Try to stretch to a bigger size toy faster than your body allows.
  • Insert toys without warmup unless you are very experienced in anal play.
  • Insert objects that are not body safe or are not shaped for safe removal.
  • Use numbing creams or gels: Your body’s sensations are there for a reason, so listen to them.

If you’re new to anal play, the Lovense Hush can allow you to bring your partner into the training you’ll require before more intense sessions of anal penetration.

As a side note, consider reading Jessica's Anal Sex for Beginners Guide.

If you’re already experienced with anal play, then go ahead and do what feels good to you.

Whether you’re an anal virgin or expert, the Hush vibrating butt plug can work for you.

In fact, it comes in 2 sizes: Small and medium.

Let’s take a look at what it does.

The Lovense Hush: A Plug Unlike Any Other

Although there are a couple other remote controlled butt plugs on the market, Hush clearly stands apart from the crowd.

It really does offer the best long-distance play of any remote controlled anal toy.

And that’s the experience you are paying for when you get a Hush.

You can buy other anal toys that vibrate. There are plenty of those. But Lovense is one of the few companies currently producing truly usable long distance sex toys.

So if your partner lives far away or travels often, this toy helps to ensure that you get the stimulation you crave no matter how far apart you are.

Not sure if it’s the right choice for you? Here’s the major breakdown of benefits:

Pros:

  • Unique spiral design keeps lube in place for easy removal after long wear.
  • Waterproof for shower play.
  • Compatible with any Bluetooth capable device.
  • Can be controlled from anywhere with internet connectivity.
  • Available in two sizes for the right fit whether you’re a beginner at anal play or beyond.

Cons:

  • Bluetooth connectivity varies.
  • Priced at $119.

Explore Hands-Free Anal Stimulation

Wearing a butt plug can be an amazing sensation on its own. But if you really want to explore the range of sensations available, you’ll likely want to add some motion to your anal play.

For some, that means manual use of a dildo or other insertable toy.

The other option is vibrating plugs. With this plug, you don’t have to fiddle with buttons on the plug itself. Just lean back and enjoy the sensations through an app on your phone or tablet.

The Bluetooth connectability sends a signal from your device to the Bluetooth receiver on the toy, allowing you to easily change vibration patterns.

Give Over Control

The Lovense Hush vibrating butt plug not only uses Bluetooth technology as a remote control. It also makes use of the Lovense app.

With the app, you can invite a partner to take control of your vibrator.

It’s pretty easy too. You both log into the app on your device. They use the app via internet connection to select vibration patterns and intensities.

And you use the Bluetooth signal on your end to relay their commands to your anal toy.

It’s pretty amazing to be able to have long distance anal sex with your partner when they can’t be nearby to play.

Take Things a Step Further

Maybe you don’t have the issue of a partner who lives far away or travels a lot. Maybe you and your partner are just interested in secretive public play.

If that’s the case, you can still allow your partner to use the app in order to control the plug wherever the two of you happen to be. No one will even know it’s there, unless you let on.

Stay Comfortable for Long Term Play

If you have any experience with wearing a plug for a long time, you know that lube can get absorbed or rub off the area you need it and leave the plug dry.

When that happens, it can be difficult to comfortably remove your anal toy. Remember, lubricant helps a lot with anal play.

The Hush, however, has an ingenious design for making removal easy even after wearing the butt plug for several hours. It has spirals on the end closer to the anal entryway. The spirals trap lube, keeping it where you need it.

Try Different Vibration Patterns

With many vibrating sex toys, you get a few different intensity settings and speeds that you can switch between.

What’s different about Lovense Hush is that you can create unlimited vibration patterns.

It’s not a matter of switching from level 2 to level 3, with a gap in between that potential skips your ideal vibration setting.

You can actually fine-tune the vibrations to precisely what you want at any given moment. Or hand over that power to your partner and let them tease you and play with the settings.

Put the Phone Down and Get Into the Moment

Although you can use your phone or other device to remotely control the vibration patterns, you have another option that opens up further possibilities for play.

You see, the Hush allows you to set sound activated vibrations. That means all you or your partner have to do is say a word, and you can get a preset pattern started, change patterns, or stop the vibration.

For solo play, this option means you can be truly hands-free and use other toys at the same time as the plug.

For partner play, it means your partner can use their hands to provide you with other stimulation while using voice commands for the plug.

Let Your Favorite Song Determine Your Pleasure

In addition to be able to fiddle with the controls in any way you can image and setting preset vibration patterns, you can also sync the vibrations to music.

You just pick a song, and the vibrating butt plug will match speed and intensity.

Keep Your Body Safe

You’ll find toys made from a few different materials. Butt plugs most often come in glass, metal, or silicone.

But sometimes you find cheaper toys made from less safe materials.

It’s important to choose high quality toy materials to prevent bacteria buildup or rashes from sensitivities to the materials. Silicone toys are one of the best options for being safe and feeling comfortable.

This is especially important for insertable toys like butt plugs.

Have Peace of Mind While Playing

When you engage in anal play, it’s super important that you only use items that are safe for inserting in the anus. That means you should not put anything in there that will get stuck or lost. Ever.

Hush is safely designed with a flared base that keeps it from fully entering your body.

Get Those Shower Orgasms You Crave

Lovense Hush is completely waterproof and safe for taking into the shower or tub. What better way to relax than with an orgasm (or several)?

Don’t worry about batteries.

One of the hassles of vibrating toys is having to replace batteries. Or worse, the batteries running out in the middle of a play session.

Hush is USB rechargeable, so you never have to replace batteries. And you get up to 2 hours of use before needing to recharge. That’s if you leave it running the whole time.

You can extend your play sessions if you’re teasing by stopping and starting vibrations at intervals.

Be Assured of the Power You Want

Hush has a bigger motor than most vibrating butt plugs. So if you’re worried about having intense enough vibrations, you can stop worrying.

The app allows you to turn up the intensity pretty much as high as you like.

Have Your Choice of Size

Size is an extremely important consideration for anal toys. That’s because everyone’s body and level of anal experience allows for different sizes for insertion.

Hush comes in 2 different sizes, so you’re more likely to get the experience you need than with other remote controlled butt plugs that only come in 1 size.

The sizes available are small (1.5 inch diameter) and medium (1,75 inch diameter). Both are 4.76 inches long with an insertable length of 3.8 inches.

What are Customers Like You Saying?

People are definitely talking about this toy…

The things that users love about Hush are the high-powered, rumbly vibrations and the ability to set an alarm time for the vibrations to start. The size also seems to be a big hit for people with some anal experience.

Unfortunately, the Bluetooth receiver does have some limitations.

The bottom line is that Bluetooth technology for Hush still needs some updates. Nevertheless, that doesn’t change the fact that it’s so far the best toy at providing long distance anal play.

So until upgrades or new alternatives come out, Hush is still the toy to buy for long distance anal play. You may just have to experiment with the right positions for keeping Bluetooth connected.

Alternatives: What if the Lovense Hush Doesn’t Sound Right for You?

No worries if it sounds like this isn’t going to be the vibrating butt plug for you. You have other options.

Allow me to introduce you to the other top vibrating butt plugs currently available:

Je Joue Nuo

Je Joue Nuo Luxury App Controlled Rechargeable Dual Motor Butt Plug

If you think you’ll struggle to accept the size of the smaller Hush, you have a similar anal toy option that comes in at a slightly smaller 1.4 inch diameter.

Je Joue Nuo has its own proprietary app, or you can use the included remote control pen. It works for local or long distance play, like Hush. But it still comes with the same connectivity issues from current Bluetooth technology.

This vibrating plug has a smoother, more bulbous shape than Hush, and comes in a bit higher in price.

If you don’t mind paying a bit more and prefer a less pointy shape, Nuo may be right for you.

We Vibe Ditto

We Vibe is the top competing company for Lovense products.

If you’re looking for a beginner remote control butt plug, the We Vibe Ditto may be your answer. It has a smaller 1.3 inch diameter that should be reasonable for many beginners to anal play.

Reviews for Ditto tend to be less satisfied than those for Hush. So if you’re experienced at receiving anal stimulation, you should probably steer clear of the Ditto.

Other than the small size, Ditto shares many features of Hush, including waterproof use and 2 hour use after recharging.

Ditto allows for local and long distance play via the We-Connect app.

The price is slightly more than Hush, though the difference is negligible if this toy is the better option for you. Better to pay a little more for a toy you can actually use and enjoy.

B-Vibe Vibrating Rimming Plug

The final alternative on this list is not an option for long distance play.

That being said, the B-Vibe Rimming Plug is one of the most amazing vibrating butt plugs you can experience.

If you don’t require the long distance capabilities, then this is definitely an amazing butt plug to own.

B-Vibe Rimming Plug has something you don’t see on other anal toys: A set of rotating beads that create the sensation of “rimming” at the opening of the anus.

It’s like your plug is giving oral sex to your butt. If you’re a fan of analingus (which is a safe practice as long as you are taking safe sex precautions), you won’t find a better vibrating butt plug for your needs.

This is remote controlled, for solo or local couple play. I recommend it for anyone who is seriously into anal play.

Final Verdict: All in All, You Won’t Be Disappointed!

Lovense Hush product boxLovense Hush is currently the highest ranked long distance vibrating butt plug by actual users of the product.

So if you’re looking to add anal sensations to your long distance play time, I definitely recommend it.

The price may come in a bit steep, but truthfully, it’s less expensive than other similar options.

Remember, you’re paying for the tech that allows you to connect with your partner.

And as long as you have reliable internet and a good Bluetooth signal, you can do exactly that.

With Hush, you can:

  • Have spontaneous play sessions through various alarm and pattern settings.
  • Keep the plug in comfortably for long periods thanks to the spiral design.
  • Share in sexual intimacy with your partner when you can’t actually be close to each other.
