Your Guide to App-Enabled Sex Toys

Sex toys are a fantastic way to explore what makes you feel good and get in touch with your body. They’re also perfect to add to couple’s play allowing you to share in the intimacy and bring you closer together. But what if it’s the middle of the night (or day), you’re feeling horny, and your partner isn’t there or you’re in a long-distance relationship? Just what can you do to experience that shared sense of intimacy and sexual satisfaction? Enter technology to the rescue.

These days it’s all about high-tech, app-enabled sex toys. They’re the perfect way to connect and keep that romantic spark going, especially if you’re looking for a long-distance relationship toy. Forget the days of fumbling with buttons or trying to reinvent your favorite vibration patterns. Just sync the toy, or in some cases the remote, to your smart device or phone and take your pleasure to the next level. You can customize and create all new types of sensations, or easily access your favorites. Better yet, connect it to your partner’s phone and let them control the fun from across the room, across the country, or even across the world.

What Do Sex Toy Apps Actually Do?

While sex toy apps don’t come with a magical orgasm button yet, they do control your vibrator or sex machine just like a regular remote. But they can do a lot more than just that!

Sex toy apps really stand out in two different ways. Remote controls can work from 20-30 feet away at most. But Internet-based apps can control your toy from almost anywhere – even the other side of the world. This makes them ideal for long-distance relationships. Even though you’re miles apart, you can still “virtually” touch your partner and leave them moaning and groaning!

This ability to control your vibrator makes sex toy apps perfect for kinky thrills. Just imagine how fun date night could be with your partner wearing an app-enabled vibrator while you control it from your smartphone… or vice versa! And if you’re into BDSM, it’s a great way for doms to control their subs.

Sex toy apps are much more versatile than a remote control. Some sex toy apps allow you to design & save your own vibration patterns for customized stimulation. You might even be able to create a vibration “playlist” featuring your favorite modes in a particular order. Other apps focus on connectivity, allowing you to video-chat with your partner while controlling and using their toys.

Sex toy apps are a great way for people to come together… in more ways than one!

How Do Sex Toy Apps Work?

Generally speaking, app-enabled sex toys connect to your smart device via Bluetooth or something similar. You can pair your toy and device for additional security. Then you can use your device to control your toy.

Are Sex Toy Apps Safe to Use?

Sex toy apps are no more risky or dangerous than any other app as long as you take proper precautions. Only use official apps from trusted sources along with a strong, unique password.

Where Can I Find App-Enabled Sex Toys?

You can see them all here. Most are made by either We-Vibe, Love Distance, or Ohmibod, manufacturers known for their cutting-edge technology. But several others have apps in the developmental stages, so keep checking. It’s only a matter of time before your favorite sex toy gets its own app!
