I’ve had mixed experiences with Lovense. I finally got my hands on the Lush, which half the sex-positive internet seems to be obsessed with, and I didn’t get what the fuss was about. Then I tried the Domi and fell in love. So what of the Lovense Ferri, which arrived in my #MasturbationMay shipment from Lovehoney?
Lovense Ferri: Small But Mighty
The first thing that struck me about the Lovense Ferri is just how small it is. It is a miniature knicker vibrator (design to be worn inside your underwear) measuring just 3 inches in length.
The Ferri comes equipped with a magnetic clip which holds it in place and means you can use it with pretty much any pair of knickers you choose. Its curved shape sits comfortably against your body, and the underside is gently ridged for enhanced clitoral stimulation.
Pro tip: I discovered that the Ferri is also great for sitting on. Like, say, while writing erotica in your desk chair?
The Ferri is waterproof, USB rechargeable, and offers 180 minutes of run time for a two hour charge. It is Bluetooth compatible and can be app controlled, which we’ll get more into in a minute.
Best of all, the Ferri is powerful as hell. The first time I tried it, it got me off in less than five minutes. There’s a lot of motor packed into a small space and I am very, very here for it.
Can You Actually Use It in Public?
I’m gonna go with… maybe.
The Lovense Ferri is reasonably quiet for its level of power, but I certainly wouldn’t describe it as silent (or “whisper quiet,” ughhhh.) You could probably get away wih it in a loud or crowded area, but I wouldn’t risk it in a quieter space.
To App or Not to App?
You really do need the app to get the full functionality from the Lovense Ferri. The toy itself features a single-button interface, three pre-programmed speeds, and four patterns. Which is fine, but pretty limited for such an expensive toy. You also can’t really use it for its intended “wearable” purpose without the app, as it doesn’t come with a remote control.
Lovense’s app is genuinely excellent. It’s honestly at least twice as good as any other sex toy app I’ve tested. However, it’s a bit of a privacy issue because it insists on having access to various parts of your phone, so do with that information what you will.
The Lovense Remote app is free to download and compatible with iOS (9.0 and later,) and Android (4.3 and later). You can also get Mac and PC versions, if you prefer.
Download the app, set up a free account, switch on your toy, and ensure your Bluetooth is connected. Then click the link symbol in the top right corner. My Lovense Ferri connected in a second and maintained a steady connection throughout use.
Here are just a few of the fun things you can do with the Lovense Ferri and the Lovense Connect app:
- Use the “Remote” control panel to change the vibration speed or use the “loop” button to create a repeating pattern.
- Find pre-installed vibration patterns and your previously saved settings in “My Patterns.”
- Schedule the toy to start vibrating at a specific time with the “Alarm” function. Fun if you want to wear it to sleep and then get vibed awake, maybe?
- Make your toy respond to nearby sounds such as music and voices with the “Sound” setting. You could even watch porn and sync the toy with the sounds, if you want!
- Vibe along to music stored on your device (or linked through a service like Spotify) with the “Music” function.
You can also connect any Lovense toy with cam sites like Chaturbate, MyFreeCams, and Manyvids. If you’re an online sex worker, this can be a fun way to interact with your fans. You can even programme your toy to respond to tips!
I haven’t tried this myself as I’m not a cam model, but reviews are generally very favourable!
Whether you’re in a long distance relationship or currently separated by the pandemic, you can use the “Long Distance” app function to give your partner control of your vibe.
There are two ways to do this. Your partner can download the app, create an account, and give you their username to connect. Alternatively, you can create a “control link” which can last from a few seconds up to an hour, and is single-use only.
Again, connectivity is strong and reliable and the toy is super responsive. Just make sure your internet connection is stable!
Yes and yes and yes again! I can’t believe that something so small could be so brilliant, but this is an absolute winner.
The Lovense Ferri retails for £129.99 and, as long as you’re happy using a smartphone app, it’s worth every penny.
