Sex Toys Review: We-Vibe We-Connect App & Compatible Toys – Vibrators | August 2022

Vibrateurs

To take away: Some toys offer technology for technology’s sake. We-Vibe offers technology that works.

I am in a long distance relationship. A long-term, long-distance relationship. It was back before there was FaceTime or Skype. There were definitely no app-enabled sex toys. And, because I was a college student living on $550 a month, I didn’t even have the money to make more than a few long-distance calls a week.

Luckily, online chat apps were popping up on the internet. We used one called ICQ. It was free, it worked fine… mostly… but every time you got a message, it made this sound:

Needless to say, these conversations didn’t evolve into cyber sex.

So when I had the opportunity to test We-Vibe’s We-Connect app, I spent a lot of time thinking about what’s next. Without technology, my college boyfriend and I would never have been together. But guys, if we had this, we would have had ALL the cyber sex. For real.

L’application

There are a lot of “high-tech” sex toys coming out these days, but many, in my opinion, have things going backwards. The purpose of technology, after all, is to make our lives easier. Make the impossible possible. To create new experiences or new ways of experiencing the same old. Sometimes, however, the technology is just for show. The thing is, the cachet and the pleasure are not the same thing and, personally, I prefer orgasms.

We-Vibe, however, achieves this balance. The toys are great on their own, but the app offers features that to improve experience. The app makes the game easier, more fun, more interesting and gives the user more control. I came into this exam half expecting to pass it playing with a boring app while trying to have an orgasm; instead, the app became a seamless part of my playtime that I actually enjoyed.

Before diving into the app, I want to give some space to the toys I got to test it out, the We-Vibe Sync and the We-Vibe Verge. I have a weakness for We-Vibe. My very first vibrator was a We-Vibe (the Touch – still an awesome toy, by the way). This company makes toys that are simple, well-designed, and a delight (and I mean a pleasure) utilize. The latest additions to my collection were no exception. The silicone is silky smooth, the vibrations are strong and rumbling, the toys are fully waterproof and charge via USB. Moreover, you can tell that they have been designed with care and attention to detail. Example: the Sync includes a hinge to adapt it to more morphologies and stay a little better. It’s a small detail, but it makes a big difference – and it’s something that many other couples vibes lack. I also really liked the Sync’s sleek storage and charging case. It’s a great way to charge your toy without leaving it lying around for people to see. Or, in my case, without letting it languish in the dusty corner next to my bed.

We-Vibe We-Connect en action

I’ve had some bad experiences with pairing devices and apps and let’s just say that in general I’m not a fan of the process. It’s so frustrating to watch two devices inches apart both exclaim that they can’t communicate.

Fortunately, this did not happen with the We-Connect app. In fact, I didn’t even read the instructions. The whole thing was alarmingly easy. I logged into the app, it showed me some basic instructions on how it could be used to control the intensity and vibration mode of my toy, and how I could ‘connect’ with my lover through the app ”. Then it told me to click to connect my toy. So I turned on my We-Vibe Sync, clicked the button on my phone, and about 10 seconds later I was vibrating my toy through my phone. Peasy easy.


You can control the vibration intensity by pinching these pink waves. The upper set controls the outer arm, while the lower set controls the inner arm of the toy.


Sliding through these waves allows you to select a pattern. You can even select different models for the inner and outer arm!


Model options. At the end, the future-to-be named “whoohoo”.

When it came time to test this app, I wasn’t at all convinced that I would actually enjoy controlling a sex toy from my phone. But I was wrong about that. After all, although the controls for both Verge and Sync are fairly well placed, fiddling with my crotch when trying to get into my groove is still disturbing and annoying. Moreover, you can only cycle through them with one button press system. With the We-Connect app, I can actually see what the vibration is doing. I can control the vibration setting and intensity on the inner and outer arm, I can switch between modes, and I can increase or decrease the vibration intensity. And, because the app depicts all of this visually, it’s all pretty intuitive.

I also played around with creating my own vibration pattern. I like a pattern that slowly builds to a crescendo and repeats, so I played around with that. After some experimentation, I named my model “woohoo” and was, in fact, extremely proud of it. My feelings about it were kind of like how I feel when I’m baking a cake. One side may be a little droopy, and there are always crumbs in the frosting, but damn if this isn’t the best cake in the world. (I like to do stuff, guys. Masturbatory vibration patterns included, after all.)

Now that I understood this application, it was time for my partner and I to join forces and play together.

Play in pairs with We-Vibe Verge and Sync

In addition to being able to pair the We-Connect app with my toy, I can also allow my partner to access and control my toy from their phone (and vice versa). Seriously – how hot is that? > Letting someone else control your vibrator remotely. The first is control. It’s actually quite hot for your partner to step back and watch you as they play with the controls; for me it felt like something between masturbating in front of him and having fun with him, but it was definitely a new experience. If a little power play is something you enjoy, you will definitely enjoy this element of these toys. And, of course, we had to take turns, so I also vibrated my partner’s pleasure device. It was fun to watch and it brought out a dominant side of me that doesn’t often show up. (I may have chuckled.)

The other really interesting aspect of playing with these toys is communication. When you’re not actually touching your partner — even when you’re in the same room — you lose a lot of feedback that helps you determine if you’re doing a good job. Of course, this would be amplified if you were actually playing long distance, although the app has a solid video chat feature that should help. After my partner fiddled with the control of my toy for a while, I just had to tell him what a setting I liked (because as much fun as it was, the tap of intensities and patterns it played on my clit didn’t do it for me). So this high-tech toy taught me a good old-fashioned lesson: to actually ask for what I want.

Preliminaries? There is an application for that

Although we only use the app and connected toys for foreplay, they provide everything foreplay should be; we laughed, we made fun, we got excited and then we made love. Also, when it comes to using an app to control my own sex toy, I’m sold. Finally, as a veteran of a long distance relationship, I really wish I had something like this back then. The pleasure we would have had…
