Lovense Nora comes from a series of Bluetooth-connected and app-operated sex toys. The high-tech nature of Lovense sex toys shows the company’s focus on the fast-expanding niche of teledildonics. To put it rather simply, Teledildonics (or cyberdildonics) allows sex toys to be controlled over a data link, even though the participants may be far from each other. For this Lovense Nora review, I’ll take a look at the effectiveness of this rabbit vibrator as a standalone toy, as well as remotely operated over a distance.

Lovense Nora Features

Packaging, Construction, And Aesthetics

To start, Lovense Nora rabbit vibrator is a feature-rich device. There is a lot that the Lovense Nora has to offer, both as a rabbit vibrator and as a teledildonic device. The box of the Lovense Nora is well constructed, and even though it arrives in discreet packaging, the box itself makes no attempt to hide its contents. A life-size image of the Nora decorates the box, along with other random information and content.

Inside the box, you’ll find the Lovense Nora rabbit vibrator, charging cord, and a user manual. The lack of a storage pouch or something similar annoys me a bit; I would expect it to be a given at this price range.

As for the construction, the base of the vibrator is made from ABS plastic, while both the appendages are made from high-quality body-safe silicone. The clitoral appendage on the Nora is flexible and can be adjusted to fit most body forms. Its insertable side has no give, and the rather thick head is accompanied by strategically placed ridges that are supposed to add to the pleasure. The total insertable length is 4.72-inches and is designed for G-spot stimulation.

While its insertable length is manageable, the rotating head is fairly wide and may actually be better suited for someone who is more experienced with sex toys, or at least comfortable with that circumference.

Lovense App And Its Use

Lovense Nora Review — With App

Much like with the Lovense Hush, the app is the star of the show here as well. As a standalone device, the Lovense Nora is certainly not the best rabbit vibrator. The magic happens when the app comes into play.

Once connected to the app, you can control both appendages of the Nora individually. So set the clitoral arm at whatever vibration speed you prefer, and then move to set the rotation speed and intensity of the insertable arm. The vibrator does a good job at isolating motion and vibration in its individual arms, so you get better freedom (and results) by setting each arm to your personal preference.

Generally speaking, both the appendages have three motion/vibration patterns, ranging at the speed of Low, Medium, and High. However, with the app going, you get access to a wider array of speeds as well as patterns. Sure you can use the onboard controls in a pinch, but the Lovense Nora works best with the app.

As I said earlier, the niche Lovense is focusing on is teledildonics, and target customers often are couples in long-distance relationships. A sense of intimacy, even with the large distance is a welcome development for most long-distance couples, and the app, as well as the Lovense Nora, work very well on those features.

Popular Modes For Lovense Nora On The App

Available on the Play Store as well as the App Store, the Lovense app connects to the Nora via Bluetooth. The pairing process is simple and painless, and once completed, unlocks the full range of functions available on the Lovense Nora Bluetooth vibrator. This includes teledildonics via using the app as a remote or getting tactile feedback from another device like the Lovense Max. The Lovense Nora can also sync with another Nora device.

There are three major ways the app interacts with this rabbit vibrator. You could use it as a local remote control, using your phone to control the Lovense Nora. Alternatively, you could pass on the control of the device to your partner (who must have the app installed on their phone), and let them control the vibrator.

Finally, there’s the third and the most promising use of the device for long-distance couples, the Sync feature. With this feature, you and your partner can both synchronize your individual sex toys to work in tandem. For example, if the man is using the Lovense Max sex toy, the intensity and speed of him using the Max should reflect on your Lovense Nora responding to his motions. Intimate, and awesome! Well, at least in theory. There are still some things to work out there, and many couples have a love-hate relationship with this feature.

Lovense Nora and Max are often sold as a combo. However, the Max masturbator has seen a much lower rate of acceptance as compared to Nora.

Waterproofing And Battery

Lovense Nora is waterproof and can also be submerged in water. Once you do take it to the bathtub, the Bluetooth connectivity decreases dramatically and there’s a good chance that the vibrator will keep disconnecting from the app while submerged. Personally, I think it’s also a bit of work to hold the vibrator as well as manage the app on the phone while in the tub, so if it must be taken to the bathtub, relying on the onboard controls is the better option.

Its waterproofing and good construction make the Lovense Nora easier to clean, which is a huge plus for any sex toy.

The vibrator is USB rechargeable. The charger magnetically attaches to the end of the vibrator’s handle. It takes about two hours for a full charge, and Lovense claims that the Nora can work for four hours on a full charge. That playtime decreases with higher intensity vibrations that are a staple for the use of this vibrator, so it’s more helpful to assume a playtime between 90-120 minutes, although it may very well last longer.

 

Lovense Nora Review — The Toy In Action

When using the Nora, it is best to take things slow and be generous with the use of lubricant. Since the Lovense Nora is covered in silicone, it is best to use a water-based lubricant with this sex toy. Start slow, and let things take their pace as you insert the bulbous head. Well, it isn’t too much work and can be fairly comfortable, but it’s best not to rush.

The rotation motion of the head feels somewhat unusual, but given the circumference, it manages to massage the G-spot quite well. Rather than keeping consistent pressure on the G-spot, the head gives it a quick massage which can be quite orgasmic. It reminds me a bit of the njoy Eleven, where the larger bulbous head is excellent for massaging the g-spot with every thrust. But then again, it can’t really match the njoy Pure Wand! But I digress, point is, the Lovense Nora does a fair job at stimulating the g-spot.

It helps that the clitoral arm is flexible, so it can be positioned comfortably on the clitoris. Considering that each arm can be powered and operated individually, it does make a decent clitoral vibrator!

Sharing Controls With A Partner

Being good with shared controls is practically the USP of the Lovense Nora. Assuming you and your partner have a good internet connection, the app and the vibrator do their job well. Even if your partner is halfway around the world, the lag is practically negligible. You could even chat a bit on the app as the vibrator runs, so there can be some real-time feedback on how well your partner is controlling the vibrator. Now that’s some awesome use and makes things a lot easier for long-distance couples.

As for the “sync mode”, I want to love it and it has huge potential. However, I think it’s not quite there yet. The feedback system for synchronization will need some work before they can hit the spot. It’s not quite there yet, but I hope it will be, soon.

Other modes though, work perfectly well and if you are a long-distance couple, there is a good chance the Lovense Nora vibrator will bring you a greater feeling of intimacy.

There are some privacy concerns whenever an app is involved. However, at this moment it seems there are no egregious complaints against the Lovense app.

 

Lovense Nora Review — Verdict

As a teledildonics device, the Lovense Nora is about as good as they come. The app and the vibrator work very well together and can function as a tool of intimacy that several long-distance couples want. This Lovense Nora review would be remiss to point out though, that while it is an amazing vibrator for teledildonics, its use as a standalone vibrator is limited. This is a good rabbit vibrator, but unless you absolutely do need the distance remote control, other vibrators may offer better value for money.
