Sex toys that you can use with your partner are extra fun, but what about those times you aren’t physically with your partner? What if you’re in public, or what if they’re in another room – or in another state? Well, as it turns out: there’s an app for that!
Luckily, the field of teledildonics has advanced considerably since that mortifying vibrating-egg scene in Shortbus. You can still get the old-fashioned, battery-operated plastic egg and single-button remote control at your local sex shop, but now there’s so much more!

Vibease was the first “smart vibrator,” a crowdfunded project to connect an app to a sex toy. Their first offering is a discreet, smooth toy that slips inside and can sync to an erotic audiobook for an immersive solo experience. But it can also be controlled remotely, for partnered fun on the run. (Maybe don’t use it during a run. Or maybe do?) Vibease also now makes the Esthesia, a higher-end toy with a G-spot stimulator.
This daring toymaker from Amsterdam is taking the couples toy market by storm. They make interactive toys for men and women, including a Fleshlight on steroids and a variety of vibrators that connect to compatible X-rated movies, VR content and more. All of their toys can be controlled remotely, so that your partner can make you come to a favorite album, movie or their own whim. Most exciting, though, is the Fuse, a dual-stimulation toy that can sync to any of Kiiroo’s other toys. Developed with OhMyBod!, the Fuse responds to you as you use it solo, adjusting its intensity based on what you do. But you can also connect your toy to your partner’s toy using Bluetooth. Trade off control of the action with the tap of a button – no remote needed!
These folks specialize in interactive toys, starting with the Sync, a vibrator meant to be worn during penis-in-vagina (PIV) sex. Since then, the company has developed a wide range of toys for different bodies. All of their toys can be steered remotely using a smartphone app. WeVibe also makes the Realm set: a stroker and a vibrator you can sync together to mimic each other’s motions. When one of you moves the toy the way you like best, the other feels like they’re on the opposite side of the sensation.
Lovense is another company innovating in teledildonics! They carry a wide range of long-distance vibrators, prostate massagers and couples toys that sync together for a truly interactive experience.
It’s a cock ring, it’s a vibrator, it juliennes fries! (Well, no.) But it is a unique toy that can stimulate a variety of genital types. Wear it like a cock ring and it can deliver vibrations to the perineum and balls. Wear it during penetrative sex and the vibrations can reach the clitoris or anus as well. But best of all, the Lovely connects to an app that gives you personalized sex advice as it learns what you like. You can use the app to control the toy from anywhere in the world, too – so when it gives you a suggestion to try, you can have your partner give it a go during your next video chat.
Yes, a classic vibrating egg! It can be scorchingly hot to watch your partner squirm while you sit several feet away and seem to do nothing. It’s awfully nice to be on the other end, too – helpless as your partner smirks, a tiny remote in their hand. The Fifty Shades franchise has updated this beauty to a smooth black silicone model, with a handy lead for retrieving it afterwards! This toy is simple. It uses a discreet, ring-shaped remote control operated from up to ten meters away. Perfect for attending a party together, getting up to discreet naughtiness in a bar or restaurant, or anytime you want to play at controlling (or being controlled!) from a shorter distance.
The technological possibilities of sex toys have come a very long way in just a few years, and now it’s possible to get an easily-cleaned, discreet, beautiful toy in an endless variety of shapes, colors and vibration strengths. They can make our bonds closer (see what I did there?) when we want to play around with power and control. Even better, these toys can connect us in an increasingly real way when we have to be apart.
