LOVENSE MAX 2 QUICK OVERVIEW
Max 2 is one of the flagship toys of the Lovense brand (Nora being the other). It was one of the first toys made by the founder for his own long-distance relationship. Max 2 is a second-generation design – with 95% of the changes made from user customer feedback/suggestions. This means it’s a toy that’s got a lot of design love over the years.
It’s a high-tech toy with a lot of functions. It has an intense vibrator and 360-degree contractions. Combined with manual stroking, it’s no wonder Max 2 is one of Lovense’s best sellers. However, it also means there are a number of buttons and doodads you’ll have to learn first for an optimal experience. Also, you have to take out the sleeve and clean things carefully (meaning it’s not a fast and super-simple toy to take care of).
Max 2 is best for users who want multiple, intense sensations along as much of their penis as possible, but don’t mind a bulkier toy – it’s 9.5 inches long and 3.3 inches wide (241mm x 85mm).
NOTE: It comes with a neutral sleeve. If you want the vaginal sleeve, you have to buy it extra.

LOVENSE CALOR QUICK OVERVIEW
Calor is a first-generation toy and is sort of a mini-version spin on Max 2 – think of a “light” version. It’s smaller (6 inches by 2.7 inches – 159mm x 70mm) and more lightweight. Instead of automatic contractions, you get squeezing sensations from your own hand by pressing down on the side of the toy.
The inside is smooth silicone, so there is no texture. Whether this is a positive or negative is totally personal. But it does make the toy easier and faster to clean. The biggest difference is the heating function and the depth sensor. So, you can have a nice warm toy while you play, and the deeper you thrust the stronger the vibrations will rumble.
Calor is best for users who want a male masturbator that’s easier to hold and clean – as well as those who need precise squeeze strength and possibly enjoy a bit of teasing or edging with the depth control. An easier learning curve might be tempting as well.

LOVENSE GUSH QUICK OVERVIEW
Lovense Gush is a glans massager. The difference is that instead of enveloping the entire penis, this toy only wraps around the shaft. What makes this particular model special is its curled design, which allows it to fit nearly any girth (unless you’re really big and then it might be a tight fit). The extra strap allows users to adjust the fit to be as tight or loose as they prefer.
After you turn on the impressively powerful vibrator, it’s up to you how you use it. It can be hands-free (and you let it sit in whatever spot you enjoy most – which can be fun for adult gaming) or you can stroke with it.
Gush is best for users who want a simple, but powerful toy they can masturbate with – and one they don’t mind not being able to envelop the entire head of the penis with.

I wish they would make a smaller/lighter max 2, like the size of the calor, with heating and add thrusting rings that automatically stroke all the way to the base.
