Whether you’re single or in a long-distance relationship, app-controlled sex toys are where it’s at. These little babies give you all the good vibes (read: orgasms) your regular sex toys do, only you can control them hands-free or put your lover in the driver’s seat, no matter how far apart you might be. 

You can even customise your own vibration patterns, so once you figure out how to hit that climax you can do it over and over again. They’re also great if you’re keen to try different sex positions that the ol’ manual wand can’t quite reach. 

Ahead, we’ve found the best app and remote-controlled sex toys for women, men and couples. Let the good vibes roll! You’re welcome.

Lovense Domi 2 App Controlled Rechargeable Mini Wand Vibrator, $199.95

This app-controlled vibrator from Lovense is perfect for couples who want to add some serious oomph to their bedroom antics from any distance. All you need to do is connect it to the Lovense app to explore unlimited good vibrations. 

Made from firm silicone, the head boasts a flexible neck so you can apply pressure how and where you want it. This toy can be used for edging – when you bring yourself or your partner close to orgasm, stop or slow down before orgasm is reached, then build back up to approach orgasm again. You can repeat this as many times as you like. Some people find this technique can help to delay and/or increase the intensity of their orgasm (results may vary).

Lelo F1s Developer’s Kit App Controlled Rechargeable Male Vibrator

The F1s combines SenSonic technology with Lelo’s Cruise Control setting, so the intensity remains constant while you play. These two technologies combine to deeply thrill your penis from all directions at once rather than simply satisfying the nerve-endings at your skin’s surface.

The internal sleeve is made from super-soft, skin-like silicone with internal grooves that heighten sensation during use. Watch yourself through the window panel as you race towards the finish, urged onward by the powerful dual motors. It’s also completely waterproof for shower adventures and easy cleaning and works best when combined with a generous splash of water-based lubricant.
