Why buy a sex machine?

Compared to traditional, more classic sex toys, there are many advantages to using a fucking machine.

  • Independence: With a sex machine, you can enjoy intense penetration all by yourself. Equipped with a powerful motor and thrusting shaft, sex machines allow you to discover new kinds of pleasures at your own pace.
  • Easy to use: The control panel on a sex machine is incredibly simple, so you'll quickly get the hang of it.
  • Variety of positions: You'll be able to try out a variety of positions, freeing you from the physical constraints that can sometimes arise with a real partner.
  • Spice up your sessions: During solo play, you’ll be able to enjoy intense thrusting. You can also use your sex machine during foreplay with a partner to really set the mood.

What kind of sex machine should I buy?

There are two main types of sex machine: those with removable attachments and those with a suction cup dildo. We will now look at the main advantages of each kind and help you choose the one that best suits your needs.

A sex machine with removable attachments

A sex machine with removable attachments allows you to fully customise your machine and change the kind of pleasure depending on the kind of the session you’d like to experience.

  • Structure: This kind of sex machine features a base with suction cups to keep it perfectly in place on any smooth surface. You can then fix any removable attachment onto the mechanical arm.
  • Removable attachments: Some popular attachments include classic dildos, masturbators, and larger butt plugs. Using a sex machine allows you to experience anal or vaginal penetration with a variety of different dildo sizes, so you can switch out the attachment depending on your mood.
  • Cost: While this type of sex machine is a little more expensive, you can think of it as a long-term investment. If you take proper care of your machine, it will last for years.

Remote control

A remote control allows you to control the settings of your sex machine.

To increase your pleasure and make penetration easier, use a suitable lubricant with your machine.

  • Water-based lube: Compatible with most sex toys, water-based lubes are incredibly well suited to silicone. They are also easy to clean.
  • Special anal lube: Thicker and longer-lasting than classic lubricants, anal lubes make anal penetration more comfortable and pleasurable.

What size should I choose for my sex machine?

It's up to you to choose the perfect size for your sex machine according to your needs.

  • Luxury and realism: A larger sex machine offers up with optimal, ultra-realistic pleasure sessions. Larger machines usually feature a sturdy base, so the toy will keep stable while you’re using it. Be warned: if you have a limited amount of living space is limited and you want to move your fucking machine from room to room, you should probably opt for a smaller, more easy-to-handle machine.
  • Portability: If you're planning to bring your device with you wherever you go, opt for a suction-cup thrusting dildo instead. This type of toy is small and discreet, so you can even take it with you in your luggage.

We hope these tips will help you find the perfect machine for you, so that you can enjoy sensual, exciting sessions. The LOVE Team is here to answer any questions you may have and to help you find the sex machine that best suits your needs.
