remote control prostate massagers

Remote control prostate massagers are a relatively new product that you or your partner might be interested in trying but don’t know much about.

That’s why we’ve created this guide to give you the most important details, which will help you make the right purchase for your needs.

You may not know, but studies have linked several health benefits with using prostate massagers. Combine these benefits with a product that can be controlled by your partner, and you can see why they are becoming popular!

How Do Remote Control Prostate Massagers Work?

Remote control prostate massagers use wifi and bluetooth to connect to a smartphone application. Through the app, you or your partner can then control and adjust the vibrations and intensity.

The vibrations are focused on the inside (through your rectum) and on the outside (against your perineum) of the prostate gland.

Now that you have a general idea of what they are and how they work, let’s talk about two of the best options available for long distance couples.

Comparing The Best Remote Control Prostate Massagers

Edge by Lovense

Edge by Lovense

The Edge by Lovense was the first remote control prostate massager to incorporate an adjustable head and optimized neck. This design helps you to find the right spot and comfortably keep it there.

For a mind-blowing experience, the Edge uses two motors, one in the arm and one in the base. You don’t have to worry about these motors impacting the battery life, because it will last up to two hours on a single charge.

The design is completely waterproof, making it safe to use in the bath or shower. It is also made from non-porous silicone, which means it’s 100% body-safe and super easy to clean.

Whether your partner is in the room with you or on the other side of the world, they can control the Edge through the Lovense Remote App.

There are multiple vibration settings to cycle through, which allows them to adjust the speed and intensity. Your partner can also create their own unique patterns and even sync the Edge to music for a truly unforgettable experience.

Vector by We-Vibe

Vector by We-Vibe

Similar to the Edge, the Vector by We-Vibe also has an adjustable head. But to take it one step further, they worked with leading prostate experts to incorporate a flexible base. This addition helps get the most pleasurable position possible without compromising comfort.

Speaking of comfort, the Vector has an insertable width of 1.18″ inches, which is the smallest width of both options. Making it a great option for beginners.

Using the We-Connect App, you or your partner can control the Vector’s speed and intensity from anywhere in the world. They can select from four intensity levels, six preset vibration modes, and even create custom vibrations.

For anyone that’s excited by the idea of using it discreetly in public, We-Vibe has worked hard to incorporate two whisper-quiet motors. It’s also worth noting that the Vector is waterproof, making it suitable for use in the bath or shower.

Our Recommended Remote Control Prostate Massager

While both remote control prostate massagers are excellent, if we had to pick just one, we would choose the Vector by We-Vibe.

While both options are fairly similar there are a few key reasons you should consider the Vector.

Perfect for Beginners

You might be new to anal play, and Vector is currently the smallest option available, making it the ideal choice for beginners.

Secondary Remote

The secondary remote is a great addition to figure out what you like with solo play before adding in advanced and long-distance features with the We-Connect App. 

Added Extras

We-Vibe have included a few extras such as sample lubricant and a silk storage bag making it ready to use straight out of the box.

Two Year Warranty

It’s hard to go past their industry leading two year warranty, which is great for peace of mind.

Frequently Asked Questions About Remote Control Prostate Massagers

Are Prostate Massagers Good for You?

Yes! Not only does prostate massage feel good, but a variety of studies show various potential health benefits to prostate massage, such as: Improvement in erectile dysfunction symptoms. Prevention or treatment of an inflamed prostate (prostatitis). Improved urine flow. May relieve painful ejaculation and help relieve benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) symptoms.

How Do I Find the Right Size Prostate Massager?

Start small. While using a prostate massager that’s not quite large enough could be frustrating, using one that’s too large could hurt so much that you never want to try another one. In general, beginners should start with a prostate massager that’s close to 1 inch in diameter or smaller. 

How Do I Know if a Prostate Massager Is Body Safe?

Sex toys are unregulated, and the last thing you want is something that could leach harmful chemicals or become a bacteria breeding ground. The safest materials for prostate massagers are silicone, stainless steel, and borosilicate glass. We recommend silicone, especially for beginners, since it has a little “give” to it. 

How Do I Clean a Prostate Massager?

You should follow the manufacturer’s directions to clean your prostate massager. Generally, the directions will be: Clean your prostate massager before and after each use. Use warm water and mild soap or a sex toy cleaner and pat dry before storing. 

Do You Need To Use Lubricant with a Prostate Massager?

Yes. The anus is not self-lubricating, so you need to use plenty of lubricant with a prostate massager. 

What Type of Lubricant Should You Use with a Prostate Massager?

In general, silicone-based lubricant is the best for anal play. However, it can degrade silicone toys, so you should use water-based lubricant with Edge or Vector. 

Does It Hurt to Use a Prostate Massager?

While you may experience discomfort when you first use a prostate massager, it should not hurt. If anything you’re doing causes pain, stop, slow down, or add more lubricant. Pain is an indicator that you may be doing something wrong.

Can Prostate Play Bring a Guy to Orgasm?

Yes, prostate play can bring a guy to orgasm – however, it may not happen the first time you try. It can take a lot of practice to have a prostate orgasm. The key is patience and practice. With time, most guys can eventually have orgasms from prostate stimulation alone.
