Lovense is a Singapore-based teledildonics sex toy manufacturer known for its VR[1] and smart sex toys, which can be controlled via Bluetooth using the Lovense mobile app.[2]

History[edit]

The company was founded in 2009 when its founder was in a long-distance relationship,[3][4] which sparked his interest in teledildonics. In 2013, the first app-based sex toys, Max and Nora[5] were launched.[6][7] 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[8] and an oscillating G-spot massager.[9]

In January 2021, the company announced the ability to participate in "digital orgies" with up to 100 strangers via the Lovense app.[10]

Security concerns[edit]

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.[11][12][13]
