You’re like the bachelorette, and you only have one final rose. But who should you give it to?
These powerful wearable egg vibrators are similar in many ways and different in significant aspects. And they’re two of my own favorites.

What is Lovense?
Lovense is a Singapore-based sex tech company that pioneered today’s most high-tech sex toys.
In 2010, they released the first “smart” vibrator you can control via Skype connection.
Then in 2013, they launched the first app-based sex toys, Max (a male masturbator) and Nora (a rabbit vibrator).
And the rest, as they say, is history.
Lovense has the best app and Bluetooth connectivity from the teledildonics I used. It’s my go-to if LDR sex or public play is on the menu.
They also have different types of sex toys that are really reliable and powerful, so it’s hard to go wrong with these brands.
What is We-Vibe?
We-Vibe is a Canadian sex toy company known for their vibrators. They sold their first vibrator in 2008, known as the first wearable vibe that couples can wear during sex.
In 2014, they released a new version of their couples vibrator, We-Vibe 4 Plus, and added Bluetooth connectivity and remote control.
They sold millions of their couples vibrators over the years! So you can say they’re really well-loved.
The best feature of most We-Vibe sex toys is their rumbly vibrations. You can assure almost every toy from this brand gives that deep rumble that shakes your core.
The Lovense Lush 3
The pink vibrator with a tail!
Lovense Lush 3 is ICONIC.
You’ve seen it worn on many adult videos or cam shows. And the wearers always GUSH about their Lush.
Lush 3 is a wearable egg vibrator with super strong vibrations to your G-spot. It has a fixed “tail” that extends outside of your vag—a figure-hugging design that makes wearing the vibe comfortable and secure for an extended period.
Its vibrations are POWERFUL.
The best part about this vibe? App control.
Customize vibration patterns, sync the vibes to your favorite songs, and give the toy’s control to your partner!
It has super reliable connectivity, so you won’t worry about getting disconnected—especially when playing with your boo.
You can assure uninterrupted long-distance sex.
Make sure to check out our full review of Lovense Lush 3 to know ALL the deets about this vibrating BFF.
At a glance, it looks just like Lush 3.
Well, yes. They’re like sisters from another mother (or, err, brand?).
Like Lush, Jive is an egg vibrator with a fixed tail. And like Lush, you can connect it to We-Vibe’s app to access more control features and use the vibe even over a distance.
My favorite feature of Jive? Its deep, rumbly vibrations—as expected from We-Vibe.
The Jive comes in two colors: blue and pink.
If you get your Jive in pink, it’d be quite hard to tell which one is Lush or Jive at a glance.
But while there are many similarities, they have crucial differences as well!
The best way to determine which is best for you is to compare these two vibrators head to head.

Lovense Lush 3 vs. We-Vibe Jive: Similarities & Differences
Let’s go through the similarities and differences between Lovense Lush 3 and We-Vibe Jive.
Lovense Lush 3 Packaging
Lovense has simple, discreet packaging.
It comes in a white square box with the Lovense logo and Lush 3’s photo right in front.
TBH, it looks like a Bluetooth earpiece if “Bluetooth Remote Controlled Egg Vibrator” wasn’t written front and center.
Here are the Lovense Lush 3’s contents:
- Lush 3
- USB charging cable
- User manual
- Storage bag
We-Vibe Jive Packaging
We-Vibe Jive came in a pink-blue gradient box. Its colors and design are more eye-catching.
It has a photo of the vibrator outside, the logo, and the product name. But it doesn’t mention anything about “vibrator,” so you could probably get away by saying it’s an earpiece if anyone asks.
Here are the We-Vibe Jive’s contents:
- We-Vibe Jive
- USB charging cable
- User manual
- 2mL lube
- Storage bag
The contents of Jive and Lush 3 are mostly similar. EXCEPT Jive has a sample lube.
That’s a really nice touch, so you can start exploring the toy immediately, especially if you don’t have a lube yet.
Lush 3 and Jive have very similar sizes.
The length of Lush is 3.77 inches while Jive is 3.62 inches.
When I say length, this is just the measurement of the toy end to end. It’s curved, so that’s NOT the insertable length.
The insertable bulbs of Lush 3 and Jive are around 3 inches. It’s not long since it’s not a toy for thrusting.
These are G-spot vibrators, and considering the G-spot isn’t in too deep into the vagina, it’s just the riiight size.
The difference between the sizes of the two toys exists in their width. But not by much.
Lush 3’s diameter at its widest is 1.5 inches and 1.4 inches for Jive.
Like I said, not by much.
But you can FEEL their difference because of the bulb’s general shape.
This brings us to…
Design & Comfort
Both have a fixed antenna, making these G-spot vibrators comfortable to wear.
It’s figure-hugging, so it doesn’t move around or uncomfortably bump into your clit.
As I mentioned above, Jive has a smaller diameter than Lush 3. By a few decimals.
But you can feel it’s slimmer because of its tapered egg shape. It has a more uniform oblong shape that starts with a tapered tip.
That means it’s easier to take in and could feel more comfortable, especially if you’re a beginner or have a tighter vagina.
Meanwhile, Lush 3 has a more “ergonomic” egg shape. It’s not uniform.
The outer side is smooth and rounded, while the inner side has a prominent bump. And it tapers out more.
Personally, I find this shape stimulates my G-spot better.
It’s not challenging to insert or anything, and it’s still comfortable to wear. But it feels girthier, which is great if you’re looking for more “stretch” and pressure in your vag.
So when it comes to design and comfort, it depends on whether you prefer slimmer (Jive) or girthier (Lush 3).
The most important aspect: vibrations.
There are different ways how you feel the vibes.
Let’s start with the QUALITY.
The best way to describe it is if they’re buzzy or rumbly.
Most critics say rumbly feel better. I say that depends on what YOU like.
We-Vibe Jive is VERY RUMBLY. Like, all throughout. The vibes feel deeper in your body, which feels reeeeeaally good.
Lush 3 is more of a combination.
At the lower settings, the vibrations are very rumbly, like Jive. At higher settings, it starts to feel a bit buzzier while still being rumbly.
Buzzy vibes feel more surface-level—like that tingling or tickling feeling. The stimulation feels more pinpointed, while rumbly vibes cover a broader area.
Some people like both buzzy and rumbly vibrations because they need that “extra push” from the tingly sensations to get them off.
Now, let’s talk about POWER or INTENSITY.
If you’re all about power, Lush 3 is better because it doesn’t joke around. It starts STRONG, and you can max it out at a higher level than Jive.
If you want gentler levels, Jive is better. Its lowest settings are really soft, and you can build it up more gradually.
However, its highest level might leave some wanting because it doesn’t quite reach Lush 3’s power.
So when it comes to vibrations, you need to determine what type of vibration you prefer and whether you like them stronger or gentler.
Lush 3 and Jive are my faves because they’re strong but NOT noisy. They’re some of the quietest vibrators around.
That’s also because they’re internal sex toys. Your body dampens the sound, making it possible to wear them even when you’re out in public.
Lush 3 and Jive’s numbers are around the same—their noise levels reach up to 43 dB. That’s really low for a vibrator.
But—Jive somehow feels even quieter than Lush 3. It seems like its rumblier vibes are muffled more in the body.
You can’t hear Lush and Jive if there’s ANY ambient noise. You can definitely wear it in a coffee shop.
In smaller spaces, like a silent room, Lush 3 is a bit more audible.
The difference is not by a lot, TBH.
You can get Jive if you’re really nervous about anyone hearing you (like if you have a roommate and you want to use it in the dead of night). But for public play, you can most likely get away with either.
Long story short, Lovense has the better app. In many aspects.
- It’s easier to pair.
- It disconnects less often.
- It stays connected at a farther distance.
- It has more intuitive app controls.
- It has a more stable long-distance control.
Lush 3 pairs almost instantly to the Lovense Remote app. And it’s always successful on the first attempts.
So if it ever disconnects (which is rare), reconnecting is fast and seamless. It even reconnects automatically as soon as I open the app again.
With We-Vibe, I encountered more humps. I often need to retry a couple more times before getting them paired, and the app takes more time searching for the Jive toy.
Okay, it’s still pretty easy. (I’m not a tech Flintstone.)
But you’d need to troubleshoot more often than Lush 3—close the app, reopen, turn the Bluetooth on and off, and so on. And this happens when you leave the app idle for a while.
You can also take Lush 3 further than Jive.
Jive disconnects at around 9 meters from the phone and the toy. Lush could reach approximately 40 meters before disconnecting.
This could be crucial when you’re playing around with your partner (at a bar or club) but not a major problem when you’re just at home.
Plus, more bodies in between could shrink the distance more. So having a long stretch from the get-go is always good.
Another important factor to consider is long-distance control.
As Lovense’s app connectivity is better, it’s more seamless when you use it with a partner. And that’s VERY CRUCIAL for LDR sex.
It’s just faster and more headache-free when my partner and I take control of each other’s Lovense toys.
Once you’re connected with your partner, We-Vibe does well. Again, IF you’re connected.
The problem usually is connecting to your partner via the app. The invites didn’t go through a couple of times. And time wasted equals horny levels going down a notch.
If LDR play is crucial for you, Lush 3 is the better option.
But if you don’t mind long-distance control, and if you’re fine having connectivity issues every now and then, you should be good with Jive.
Both Lush 3 and Jive lets you control the toy manually.
They have a single button located on the tail for you to turn the toy on and off and cycle through its built-in settings.
Good. Convenient. Boring.
Using the app really unlocks all the features of your egg vibrator, and that’s why connectivity is really important as well.
But while both vibrators connect with their own apps, they also function more differently.
The We-Connect app is very… purple. It’s literally purple overall with white accents here and there.
Its interface is very clean, modern, and minimalist. So navigating around the app is really easy.
The settings of We-Vibe’s app are better if you want pre-designed patterns you can adjust. It has 10 vibration patterns to start with.
You can increase or decrease the intensity level by dragging your finger up and down your screen. But you can’t change its speed.
You can create your own pattern, but it’s not as intuitive as Lovense’s app.
For example, creating a pattern is guesswork because you can’t FEEL it as you draw it. You’ll only know how it feels after making the pattern, which makes it difficult to nail.
Meanwhile, Lovense Remote is super fun to use because you can feel the vibration while creating it.
It has a “Loop” feature, so the pattern loops after it’s over. Then, the “Float” feature maintains the vibration at a constant level until you turn it off or switch settings.
With Lovense, the intensity level of the vibration pattern is locked (you can change it on We-Vibe). However, you can adjust its vibration speed (which you can’t do on We-Vibe).
Then again, some people don’t want to do the extra work of creating their own patterns and do fine with the preset ones.
Meanwhile, others love Lovense’s customizability. You basically get unlimited vibration patterns!
Another great feature of the app is music sync.
Both toys can sync their vibrations to music! We-Vibe has an edge on this one because you can choose whether your vibrations vibe with the music’s bass, mid-range, or higher sounds.
Lovense Lush 3 is better if you want to play with multiple partners at a time. Meanwhile, We-Vibe Jive only allows you to interact with one partner.
We-Vibe also doesn’t support an anonymous feature.
If you’re feeling more adventurous and you want to share your Lush 3’s control with a stranger, you can anonymously share a one-time control link.
Don’t worry, as it’s safe. After a link expires, that stranger won’t be able to request access again.
The other features that Lush 3 and Jive share on the app include texting, voice calls, video calls, sharing photos, and transferring control of the toy.
But I suggest using a third-party app (like Skype) for your video calls to lessen disconnections.
One app could only do so much, and I noticed the app disconnects more often if I overload it with a video call.
Are you getting this vibrator to spice up your solo play? Either one is really up to par.
Their physical buttons are almost the same—right at the end of the antenna. With it, you can cycle through their preset vibration settings and have fun!
Of course, you can also use the app during your solo ride.
While these toys are G-spot vibrators, you can also use them to tease your other erogenous zones like the nipples or clitoris, or anus.
Something to note
Either toy is not for anal play, so you shouldn’t try inserting it into your anal canal. (It’s not shaped for it and doesn’t have a flared base.)
Where’s the fun in using a wearable vibrator if you don’t wear it when you’re out and about, right?
As I mentioned, both toys are pretty discreet. You don’t have to worry about someone else hearing something vibrating between your thighs.
Just make sure you’re not somewhere super quiet and echoey that you could hear a pin drop.
Lush 3 has more of an edge here as it has longer battery life. It most likely won’t die on you mid-commute.
Plus, it has more reliable app connectivity, so there are fewer chances of having to reconnect the app and toy repeatedly in public.
Lush 3 and Jive are indeed modern sex toys. And they prove that with their magnetic charging ports. (I charge them the same way I charge my smartwatch.)
The magnetic charging ports are really convenient.
Some people don’t like it because they find it jostles free more easily, interrupting charging. But I rarely experience that.
When the ports snap together, they stay that way easily. Just make sure you charge your sex toys somewhere safe and not busy with movements.
This charging system also enables these toys to be waterproof since there’s no hole punctured in the toy for water to seep in.
I’d take waterproofs any day.
You can use them for water play, AND they’re so easy to clean since you can just wash them.
Moving on to battery life…
We-Vibe Jive lasts around 1.5 to 2 hours. It’s a pretty average time when using the toy on medium to high levels.
That could last me enough for one session.
Meanwhile, Lovense Lush 3 lasts a whopping 3 to 5 hours! And you can do that WHILE setting it on its medium to high levels.
Call me impressed.
Do you really need a toy that lasts that long? Not all the time. But if you’re planning to do some public play and extended wear, then, yes, you do need that.
The price of Lovense Lush 3 and We-Vibe Jive is pretty similar from their official sites or from various sex toys stores.
We-Vibe Jive costs $119 on the We-Vibe site.
Meanwhile, Lovense Lush 3 is the same price as well. It’s $119 on Lovense.
Lovense does offer sales often, so you could get Lush 3 at a possibly lower price if you chance upon their discounts.
With that, price isn’t the most defining factor when choosing between Lush 3 and Jive—which is great.
That way, you can really choose which one fits your preferences better. Not just because one is cheaper.
We-Vibe Jive wins in warranty.
Jive has a two-year warranty, while Lush 3 has a one-year warranty.
You can use your Jive with longer peace of mind than Lush 3.
What Do Other People Think About Lush 3 or Jive?
Cam Girls Reviews
What is the pink toy with the tail sticking out I saw in porn’ is one of the most common sex toy questions. I think the Lovense Lush is especially popular with cam girls because it can be set up to vibrate when someone sends a tip.
I stream on SM and have the We-Vibe Jive. It connects, the vibe button is lit up. But when the guys tip me, it doesn’t vibrate.
So I guess it depends on just how good you want your app (apparently Lovense wins on the app) and where you want your stimulation (We-Vibe wins for the clit).
I love the We-Vibe’s shape. […] The Lush is fantastic as well.
