The company was founded in 2009 when its founder was in a long-distance relationship, which sparked his interest in teledildonics. In 2013, the first app-based sex toys, Max and Nora were launched. In 2015, Lush was launched with help of $100,000 raised on the crowdfunding website IndieGogo. Since then, Lovense has released a number of toys including a Bluetooth butt plug to be controlled at a long-distance and an oscillating G-spot massager.
In January 2021, the company announced the ability to participate in "digital orgies" with up to 100 strangers via the Lovense app.
In March 2021, researchers at ESET published a whitepaper on the potential security risks brought about by the use of digital sex toys. The researchers commented that Lovense devices contained "controversial" design choices, such as a lack of end-to-end encryption in image transfers and the fact that the devices operated using Bluetooth Low Energy technology, which meant devices could easily be detected and identified by a Bluetooth scanner.
