Lovense Hush Review:

My Thoughts On The Hush Butt Plug

Written by: Angela Watson | Updated: March 10th, 2020

This review is going to go in a bit of a different direction, namely, into the anal cavity.

That's right people, this toy is all about butt stuff. Rectal cork, butt plug, fecal fastener, or whatever you wish to call it, that's what the Lovense Hush is.

Naturally, since it's from Lovense some teledildonic elements are bundled in out of the box.

The Hush vibrating butt plug is one of the more popular Bluetooth butt plugs available currently. I wanted to get to the bottom of why this toy has gained so much popularity.

It's commonly believed that vibrating butt plugs are a thing for kinky men only, since there's a prostate to stimulate. Prostate orgasms for men are extremely intense in sensation, so that's how people wrap their heads around men voluntarily shoving foreign objects up there.

Unfortunately this has left women woefully uneducated as to how pleasurable butt plugs can be. There's a lot to it, to be frank.

There's a shared wall between the anus and the vagina, this wall is chock full of nerve endings and manipulation of one side of the wall can be felt on the other. Anal toys such as the Lovense Hush do a fantastic job at stimulating these nerve endings and can even bring you to orgasm (believe it or not).

Since I'm still somewhat of a beginner to plugging, I originally chose this option due to it's modest dimensions and easy to grip handle. The Lovense Hush has quickly became my go-to toy for anal stimulation for reasons I'm about to explain.

What Makes The Hush Butt Plug Special?

The Hush toy is made from 100% silicone like all Lovense toys and has a lot of smart features that make it way less intimidating than some of the other anal plugs on the market that look like classified CIA torture devices, and for that, I thank them. The silicone exterior makes for enough give of the outermost part of the toy so there's no feeling of forcing anything, while the entire unit itself is authoritative enough in firmness to keep things moving at a comfortable pace.

The Lovense Hush is a great sex toy if you're looking for a plug suitable for public play. Since the toy is app controlled and can be controlled from the smartphone app, you're able to enjoy public play without any issues. For this reason, it's also a good option for those in a long distance relationship.

There's three design features worth noting on the exterior of the Hush that makes me less apprehensive about putting this in my most well-guarded hole.

Firstly, there's spirals towards the end of the Hush that sticks out that makes inserting as well as using the vibrating butt plug a lot easier since they work to trap lube. Next, the neck of the toy connecting the handle to the body is extremely rigid and of the perfect size to keep the toy in place instead of rampaging unchecked, the threads mentioned earlier run all the way down the neck and do help keep things "locked." 

The last feature worth touching on for now is the well designed base that fits ergonomically into the hand for removal.

The base is wide enough and is slightly hooked so you won't even have to worry about losing this thing inside of you and having a very difficult to explain time at your local hospital.

This isn't just a hunk of silicone you can use for anal play, though. It's 2019 (currently), naturally we have bluetooth enabled smart anal plugs instead of the analog anal plugs of yesteryear.

The amount of bells and whistles on offer if you install the Lovense app on your phone and pair it with your toy is entertaining to say the least. You're given the option of controlling the vibrations yourself or by someone who has your phone in the same room as you, or to allow your partner to get your butt buzzing anywhere they have an internet connection.

The toy is also completely waterproof so you can even use it in the shower. It's also very easy to clean due to it's waterproof design.

Instead of dedicated vibration patterns like other Lovense toys, an unlimited amount of vibrations are on offer should you customize them properly through the app. I'd never thought I'd see the day I could sync a butt plug to music, but here I am.

Ultimately these app controlled features are great for me personally, because anal play has to go down a very specific way for me to really get into it. The remote control feature present in the app also enables some long distance sexual gratification, I'm grateful that the Hush butt plug provides for such an experience.

It charges via a USB charger in about 1.5 hours and a full charge will give this vibrating butt plug about two hours of use, which for me is about five to six romps, give or take a session.

What Comes Inside The Box?

To be completely honest, the Lovense Hush doesn't really come with a whole lot of accessories which was somewhat disappointing.

Here's everything you'll receive inside the box:

  • The Lovense Hush (surprise, surprise)
  • A charging cable
  • A user guide
  • A warranty registration card

The only thing that's missing in my opinion is a satin storage pouch, but I've managed to make do with a few pouches I already had laying around the house.

How Does The Hush Work?

Here's a very informative video made by Lovense which outlines all of the main features of the Hush:

How Does It Feel?

I'm no amateur at exploring my own body to find out what feels mindbogglingly pleasurable, but I always approach my posterior much more surgically than I do vaginal play. First step is always to lube the Hush up plenty raunchy because I am absolutely not going to go through the effort of taking it in and out repeatedly to reapply lube or risk damaging myself.

Let's get to brass tacks, though. After I slip the Hush vibrating butt plug in, I typically have some initial convulsions of my pelvic floor that always jolts me wide awake with glee. Once secured in place, that's where the fun begins.

First, I'll talk about what I like getting out of the toy itself with no additional help from my partner or my own hands, the vibrations of the device transfer seamlessly through the shared anal/vaginal wall in a way that's just not possible to replicate with any other device. There is a feeling of "fullness" that is extremely erotic in nature and revs my engine to no end.

I don't tolerate the fastest vibration setting very well, however. The fastest setting delivers very powerful vibrations which are a bit much for my taste.

 I find the middle one to be more than powerful enough for what I'm seeking, the last setting makes me feel like my entire lower body is in an earthquake while the rest of my body is figuring out how that's even supposed to be possible.

This last setting is what I can imagine must be exactly what men are looking for in a prostate massager, after what I've heard about how excessively mind-blowing a prostate orgasm is, I'm very envious of men that can take advantage.

I get the most fun out of pleasuring myself with the Hush inside of me, though. Clitoral orgasms come much faster for me for some reason and any sensations on my clit are multiplied by a factor of 1.5, I've had some very, very wet fifteen minute sessions.

While inserted, the Hush butt plug is extremely quiet regardless of which of the vibration patterns are chosen, so anyone who wants some discreet anal play should be happy that the silicone exterior works well to dampen the noise output.

When I use the Lovense Hush, it frequently stimulates pelvic floor contractions that leave me weak in the knees, I need to be on a bed or safe surface if I'm going to have a full session with this bad boy. If a plug is shaped just right for my body, the vaginal wall is pushed right up towards my G-Spot, I can often find the G-Spot easier with a plug like the Hush than with my favorite vibrator; that's something worth considering.

Having a plug in makes me feel fuller, and the effect of having intercourse at the same time as using one is absolutely stunning, how much raw sensation I get leaves me unable to walk for a few minutes after a righteous orgasm. It's worth noting that toys that have the controls on the device itself can be hard to manipulate in use, the app connectivity drew me in big time.

If your tushy is anything like mine, it's pretty delicate and sensitive. I don't recommend using the Hush without lube unless you are very experienced with your hind quarters, the results are, well, atrocious. This toy is made from silicone, so a long lasting oil based lube is best for the job. The anus is obviously not self-lubricating like the vagina is, you'll have to loosen things up a bit to keep everything kosher. And for Gods sake, go slow.

Using it during sexual intercourse also brings an added dimension for both me and my husband. It's a fantastic toy for using with a partner. I like to bring out the Hush once in a blue moon to keep things new and interesting. I'm typically the one it's inserted into, and I like being double stuffed on occasion, it's perfect for me because I like the sensation and the kink behind it but I would never enjoy sharing my body with anyone other than my husband. I've used the long distance features as well, there's something special about being able to play with myself while my significant other controls what's going on in the back door.

I managed to talk my husband into using it once and he said it definitely felt very pleasurable and wasn't uncomfortable whatsoever physically, but the mental aspect just isn't for him.

He said that if he ever conquers some of his mental apprehensions about using a butt plug, he'd definitely return to the to see all it can offer, like there's something very special waiting for him once he's ready to open that door.

Where's The Best Place To Get One?

I bought mine directly off the Lovense website and received free shipping with my order. For the app, simply look on Google Play or the App Store and search "Lovense Remote".

The Lovense Hush is available in two sizes, the small size with a diameter of 1.5 inches or the larger size with a diameter of 1.75 inches, 1.5 inches is a good medium size, I'd only recommend the bigger one for people are 100% sure that they can handle larger butt plugs.

In my opinion, the best place to purchase the Hush is straight from Lovense. They offer the lowest price available online since they deal with everything themselves, if you buy from a reseller you'll probably have to pay a premium of some sort. All of their toys come with support for remote control, anyone in a long distance relationship who wants to keep the sexual aspect of their relationship alive and well should check out the rest of their catalog.

On top of it, that way you know you'll get a legitimate product with a proper 1-year warranty.

Final Thoughts

The Lovense Hush is the butt plug that finally convinced me of how valuable anal stimulation can be for both men and women. There are no reasons to be uncomfortable with exploring your body as in-depth as possible, so if you think it might be for you don't burden yourself with undeserved shame for what you decide to do sexually behind closed doors.

This toy is gentle to insert but firm in it's ability to work as a functional vibe. I consistently go back to the Hush to keep my sheets wet and my G-Spot tingly, who'd have thought I'd be daydreaming about the next time I shove something up my bum.

Using the Lovense app makes for an interesting experience since your phone functions as a remote for the Hush that gives you full control in a way not every other toy can. I appreciate not having to fiddle around with the toy while using it, it keeps me very comfortable. It's quiet enough to be used stealthily, even if you don't have to worry about that it's good to know it doesn't vibrate so much that it detracts from the overall experience.
