Lovense sex toys are the culmination of more than 10 years of research, development, and countless hours. In 2009, founder Dan Liu was in a long-distance relationship. Lack of sexual intimacy was a serious problem and therefore sparked an interest in teledildonics.
The following year, Remote Pleasure was born. It was a revolutionary remote control vibrator which used Skype to control it from distance - one of the first of its kind. It pleased thousands of couples all over the world. But, we knew we could improve.
Between 2011 and 2012, research continued and prototypes of the first two-way interactive, teledildonic sex toys were built. However, the design and technology wasn't up to our standards. We went back to the drawing board and utilized smartphone Bluetooth technology, which is the basis of our current toys.
First released in late 2013, Max and Nora were the first app-based, sex tech toys of their kind. Nora was the first Bluetooth rabbit vibrator and Max was the first Bluetooth male masturbator. Over time, we've continually optimized both the software and the hardware to ensure they are one of the top options for people in long-distance relationships.
