If you’re just learning about the existence of long-distance sex toys, welcome. You may think sex requires proximity—but given recent advances in technology that isn’t exactly true, and your sex life doesn’t have to suffer just because you and your partner aren’t in the same bed, room, or even country together. There’s been a steady increase in the growth of app-controlled devices that allow you to control the sensation your partner is feeling on their most sensitive parts from anywhere on the planet. It’s the usual bedside table suspects: vibrators, prostate massagers, masturbators—that are also hooked up to a globe-spanning orgasm Skynet.
So whether it’s months or years apart or just a quick business trip, we’ve got the 10 best long-distance sex toys that will make your next FaceTime as sexy as possible. (For those who can be together physically, we also have the best sex toys for couples.)
Best Dual Stimulation Vibrator: Lovense Nora
The combo of clit vibration on the outside and G-spot massage on the inside makes this rabbit vibrator a winner for long-distance couples. When you sync it up with the Max 2 (below) via Lovense’s app, the two toys will respond to each other’s motions as if you’re actually having sex. The future is now.
Best Prostate Massager: We-Vibe Vector
The prostate is the male G-spot, and ignoring it means missing out on many intense orgasmic adventures. (Just saying.) The Vector is the best smart massager on the market, offering an adjustable bulb for the perfect fit. This toy has more of a rumbly, slowly intense stimulation effect for the prostate and perineum, rather than a “buzzy” sensation. You connect it to the We-Connect App and can customize the patterns of vibration. It’s perfect for changing up the game when the old rub-and-tug starts to get old during your video sex sessions.
Best Panty Vibe: We-Vibe Moxie
This vibe comes with a strong magnet you can use to attach it to your underwear in whatever spot feels the best, essentially turning your underwear into a panty vibrator controllable from anywhere on earth.
Best Cock Ring: Lovense Diamo App Controlled Rechargeable Cock Ring
The Diamo C-Ring gives couples the ability to create up to 10 unique vibration patterns, to really cater to what turns you both on. This one is perfect for mutual masturbation over video chat.
Best Couples Vibrator: We-Vibe Sync
The We-Vibe Sync is designed to provide clitoral stimulation during penetration by hooking over the clitoris and into the vagina. It also makes a fantastic clitoral (or dual) vibrator for solo play. The Sync is really intuitive and comes with an app so you can control it from anywhere to give your partner control over waves of pleasure while you’re away from each other.
Best Stroker: Lovense Max 2
This stroker combines vibration and gentle rhythmic squeezing to create wildly intense sensations. Your partner can control it via Lovense’s app, or you can even sync it up with other Lovense toys (like the Nora, above) for long-distance sex that almost feels like you’re actually together.
Best G-Spot Vibrator: Lovense Lush 3
For a partner who enjoys G-spot stimulation and being teased from afar, there could be no better gift than the Lush 3. This powerful little vibrator slips inside the vagina and rumbles against the G-spot, whether you’re controlling it from across the globe or across the room.
Best Sucking Toy: Satisfyer Love Triangle
Oral sex is the tried and true way to give clitoris-owners orgasms. Not everyone loves it, but the people who do really love it. The Satisfyer uses air pulse technology to surround the clitoris creating the feeling of oral sex. The Love Triangle pairs with the Satisfyer App, giving you control over the modes of the toy from afar. You can create your very own customized experience for your partner.
Best Butt Plug: Nuo Vibrating Butt Plug
The anus is a pleasure-packed area that can be enjoyed by all genders. The most sensitive area of the anus is the opening so there’s no need for deep penetration (if that’s not your jam). The Nuo butt plug is the perfect smart toy for anal newcomers. It’s made of body-safe silicone, offering powerful vibrations, which are programmable through remote control. It has dual motors, meaning it simultaneously feels like you’re being rimmed while it massages the prostate.
Best Love Egg: Svakom Textured Love Egg
Your partner inserts the egg into the vagina, much like they would a Kegel ball. The Ella comes with a string and ball on the end designed for easy removal (no getting lost up there). You can connect your toy to the remote app to control the pattern of the egg from anywhere.
