My time with the Lovense Dolce can be summarized using one word:

Sweet.

That’s the word I use to describe my orgasms. Not the cute, frilly bow kind of sweet, but that delicious, sticky, hot sweetness that you find with cookies fresh out of the oven. Licking your lips after and finding little crumbs of sweetness hidden in the corners of your lips. Sugar cubes under your fingernails. 

So when I was tasked with writing a review of the Dolce, I thought about this sweetness. It’s no coincidence to me that dolce means ‘sweet and soft’ in Italian. 

I was excited.

Unwrapping the Dolce Lovense

It arrived in a discreet, small box in the mail. The box itself was sleek and quiet – no loud plastic rustling – just open it up and slide the lid off. Inside there’s a USB charger, the Lovense Dolce and a black, satin case. That’s fantastic because this is a toy you’ll want to take with you, trust me.

The Lovense itself is heavier than I was expecting, and beautifully soft. It’s solid and firm, it doesn’t rattle, or feel unstable and it fits gorgeously inside my hand. The smooth silicone is tough and durable, but feels great too.

Once you’ve unboxed your Dolce Lovense, it’s time to charge it up. You’ll need to wait 70 minutes for the Dolce to fully charge, and when it’s charging it has a red light that shows. The charger is magnetic, and it attaches easily to the charging base. The magnetic charger keeps it waterproof, so you can use it wherever you want (once it’s finished charging!)

While that’s on charge, it’s time to download the app.

The Dolce Lovense App

One of the huge selling points of the Dolce, and indeed all the Lovense product lines, is that the toy can be controlled remotely from anywhere. That adds a huge dynamic to long distance play, cam sessions or even just a solo session with easy to reach controls.

There is one app for all of your Lovense toys, which makes it easy to manage and keep track of if you have a large collection. Plus, it makes customisable vibrations visible, giving a whole new dynamic to your orgasms. You can connect the app to music, or even create a pattern based on your experiences and climax. It’s pretty amazing, and although I’ve had this toy for a few weeks now, I certainly haven’t tried out all the possibilities, yet.

But my first time with this toy was solo, so I gave the hands-free session a go. 

Good Vibrations

I turned it on and wow. It’s strong.

I actually had trouble turning it on and off and figuring out the manual controls. This is because I was too excited and didn’t bother reading the instructions… But it also meant that I was squirming around trying to turn it off very soon after I figured it out. Even in my hand the most powerful setting was too strong.

I was a bit unprepared for how strong it was. It was time to readjust.

The good news is that in the right place, and after a considerable build up, it’s much more manageable.

The Dolce consists of two innovative arms. One is for inside, where the vibrations are created, and the other gently caresses the clit and holds it firm. The shape of the head is thick, which means that it’s held in place easily, but it’s comfortable and rests just right on the G-Spot. In fact, once I got my angles figured out it worked great. As I orgasmed my muscles inside tightened, meaning that it definitely wasn’t going anywhere and that it felt secure inside of me.

The toy is also versatile. Before I got wet enough to put the Dolce inside of me, I used the vibrating arms on my clit. Although it isn’t the same as my clit vibes, it definitely did the job and I had to pull it away before I came too soon.

Now I was ready: wet and open enough to give the G-spot arm a go. I slipped it inside my tight pussy and it stretched me open deliciously. With the head resting on my G-spot, and the arm snugly caressing my clit. Plus my horny throbbing calling out to me, I turned it on.

Okay wow. I came almost immediately.

Up till this point, I was on my back, legs in the air. I switched to my front so I was lying prone (my boyfriend’s favourite position for me to be in) and I used the natural rhythms of my thighs to tighten and come again. It was incredible. 

Up to this point I hadn’t been using the app, so this time I got my phone and opened the app to have a play. With features like music sync, partner connection and visualising the vibrations in patterns, it looked cool but a bit overwhelming for my first session. I was just getting acquainted!

I’ll be honest, looking at a screen and thinking about the app kind of distracted me from my primary mission: making myself come a crazy amount of times. 

Although it was fun, I quickly lost interest and went back to my solo fantasies…

Long Distance Play

But once I told my partner about the app, it wasn’t long before he had it on his phone. The app is a lot more fun together and when he had to travel a night away for work, we got busy over the phone.

With the Dolce firmly inside of me, my boyfriend whispering his fantasies through my headphones and my hands grasping the edge of the mattress, this was where the Dolce came into its own.

There’s something so hot about dirty talk, and getting lost in what my boyfriend was saying and doing while I was totally under his control was unbelievably hot. My climax was incredibly powerful as I felt so submissive and powerless.

One of the incredible things about the Dolce is also how discrete it is. It’s so quiet that it means that you can truly get lost in your thoughts, without that terrible background noise. In our newfound silence, one of the features of the app my boyfriend and I discovered together was the music feature.

We love having sex with music, powerful drums and intoxicating rhythms add something almost primal to our sex. With the Lovense app we were able to sync the vibrations to the rhythm of our music. That was an incredible feature. With the drums in my ears, and the beats inside of me, I could feel music in an entirely different way. 

One thing we didn’t do is public play – that doesn’t work for us, but I can see the possibilities here. It would be exciting to experience these at random, but the practicality for me takes away from the excitement. The Lovense is big, and to fit inside me snugly it needs some lube and some preparation, which could be awkward in public. Wearing it is another option, but the size and weight of it might make that uncomfortable over long periods of time.

What is definitely worth exploring, though, is the new way you can connect long-distance via the Lovense app. 

My Final Dolce Lovense Review

While this was my first vibrator using an app, it certainly wasn’t my first vibrator experience. The key takeaway for me was the quality of the toy.

It’s sleek and supple form embraces my curves in just the right places, but the weight and the feel of the toy is unlike anything else I have in my collection. It’s moldable and beautiful, and the orgasms it gives me are incredible. It even looks great – the hot pink looks great tight inside my pussy, and the way it fills me up gave me all kinds of kinky chastity belt fantasties which I loved exploring.

I did have a bit of a difficult start using it – it was tricky to get it in the right shape for my body, then get it inside without changing that shape, but with trial and error, it was great in the end.

Although it’s comfortable, it’s powerful. That might just be me, I know I am quite sensitive. I have toys that get that strong, but not on the first setting. Getting me past the first vibe setting to the point when I enjoyed it required some build up. I would also suggest a lot of lube.

Was the Dolce the kind of delicious sweetness I was looking for? Absolutely. Huge positives for me are the shape and the delicious weight of the Dolce. The way it fits inside me, embraces my whole pussy and finds all those elusive spots I can’t reach alone is incredible. I found the Dolce really enhanced our tantric music sessions, and laying prone with the Lovense inside me and my boyfriend in my ass was another personal highlight of this week.

With its supple design, gorgeous curves and powerful vibrations, the Lovense Dolce is truly a masterpiece.
