A bit about me: my name's Ness Cooper and I'm a sexologist and sex coach with over ten years of experience. Fun fact for you: public sex-ploration is the most common sexual fantasy that I'm asked about.
Over the years I’ve tested and reviewed countless vibrating love eggs, all in the name of sex science. While on my quest to find the best ones out there, I've really deciphered what makes a successful remote-controlled vibrating egg and what, well, doesn’t.
Lovehoney Love Egg review: “Here's why it's one of my go-to couples toys for spicing up your sex life”
How to use the Lovehoney Love Egg vibrator and how it was
Sharing a secret with someone can be exciting - especially if it's sexual and you have to act subtly. Picture the scene, then: you're in public with your partner and they have total control over the vibrating sex toy in your knickers.
An erotic secret can add heat, anticipation, and spontaneity to any sex life, as can using sex toys in public with a partner. It demonstrates a special kind of trust and vulnerability, and when you find the right person for such adventures, it can be mega hot.
That's where my Lovehoney Love Egg vibrator review comes in. I've been testing the egg for Marie Claire UK and, when I first put it in vaginally, it rested comfortably against my G-spot. As my partner played with the remote, the tingling vibrations turned me on a lot, putting me in a very playful mood.
While the Lovehoney Love Egg vibrator wasn’t strong enough to make me orgasm on its own, it was very fun to play with during couples play on the clit, nipples and more. That, in my opinion, makes it stand out as one of the best couples vibrators I’ve tried.
Using it alongside other toys to tease my body externally worked a treat (my recomendation to try alongside is the Lovehoney Magic Wand). Alternating both over my clitoris led to an extremely delicious and intense orgasm.
The Lovehoney Love Egg vibrator can be controlled with or without the remote - FYI, there's a control button on the egg itself. This is unlike other love eggs I've tried before, where only the remote can control the vibrations or turn the toy off.
One thing to note - I found the Love Egg worked best when you kept the remote in the same room as it, or in close enough proximity. When out and about, I found that, in very crowded areas, the egg didn’t always respond to the remote. I'd recommend aiming for dinner table apart if you're keen to use in public.
I found that the shape of the egg allows you to hold it easily and use it to tease your external erogenous zones like your clit or nipples. Plus, the loop cord is longer than other alternatives, making it easy to loop over your fingers and as a result difficult to drop the vibrator when playing (which wouldn't be ideal).
How to keep it maintained and clean
Cleaning the egg itself isn’t difficult as it’s waterproof - read all about how to clean your sex toys safely, here.
That said, the remote should only be cleaned with a damp cloth as water can get in through the buttons.
I found that during storage if the Lovehoney Love Egg vibrators' batteries are left in, they'll drain away, so do make sure you always remove them when storing to avoid disappointment.
