When I first started reviewing sex toys I won a sex machine. It was fantastic at the time and I had some amazing fun with it, however it was lacking in a few regards. To my mind the LoveArc is a much better sex machine and it’s not even motorized!
It’s perhaps because the LoveArc isn’t motorized as to why I love it so much. There’s no defined settings, no pre-decided attachments. Instead the LoveArc represents potential; the desire to explore on your own terms. If that isn’t sexy as fuck then I don’t know what is.
The LoveArc Sex Machine
The LoveArc was kindly provided to me by Meo and, at first, I wasn’t quite sure what to think of it. I’m not a stranger to sex machines, but I’m hardly a machine glutton either. Besides, the LoveArc was wholly different from anything I tried before. It was a rogue element.
The LoveArc came to me in a very discreet (but huge) box. If you’re buying the LoveArc as a surprise for your partner or if you live with friends or family then you’d best have a good excuse for what’s in the huge parcel you’re going to receive because a parcel that size naturally prompts inquiry. Once out of its packaging, though, the LoveArc is actually very compact.
This aluminium product doesn’t bend or fold but its 37 inch length is surprisingly easy to store around the house. It happily leans against walls and is thin enough to tuck away in a spare corner. Personally I keep mine at the end of the bed where it exists unobtrusively until I decide to put it to good use. The LoveArc only weighs 3kg, making it very easy to transport and position. I never had any issue moving the LoveArc around, and this included some rather passionate repositioning mid-use when I craved a quick change of angle.
The LoveArc itself looks fantastic, as well as fantastically stealthy for a sex machine.
With silver bars at both ends and a black arc, the LoveArc looks like a futuristic workout product rather than a self-propelled sex device. Regardless the LoveArc is perfectly designed for purpose. Its arc can hold up to eleven dildos (in theory) and the angle for your toy varies depending on where it’s placed. As a default the LoveArc can be used in three different ways—placed firmly down on a flat surface to straddle, placed against a wall and approached either standing or on all fours, or flipped the other way around and manually rocked during use—however, in practice the possibilities are near endless.
Meo offers eleven different ways to use the LoveArc and that’s just for gents! How is this possible? Well, essentially what the LoveArc offers is an ergonomically designed surface to put your own suction cup toys on to, so you pick the way that you play. Dildos, butt plugs, the Fleshlight with a suction cup attachment, all of them will work with the LoveArc as long as the suction cup fits on its 3.25 inch width then you should be able to use it with ease. I’ve actually gone to remove my dildos from the LoveArc before and had them lift the LoveArc itself, so you can feel pretty assured that your toy isn’t going to budge once in place.
Another benefit of the LoveArc is that because it’s not reliant on mechanical thrusting it’s totally silent. This makes it perfect for those who need a discreet or quiet sex machine. Its aluminium body is also extremely easy to wipe down with a cloth and a toy cleaner, or even just some wet wipes.
I have to admit, I’ve got a few toys with a suction cup and, while I appreciate this feature, I’ve never actually made use of them. I’m just not really the type of person who enjoys sticking a dildo of a wall and going to town on it. However, ever since I got the LoveArc my suction cup toy’s unlocked potential has been unleashed. All of a sudden I’m presented with new possibilities, new angles, and new sensations. I wish all of my dildos had suction cups on them! Thankfully LoveArc are working on a strap to make dildos with a flared base compatible but, until then, my suction cup toys are enjoying a new lease of life.
I first tried the LoveArc conventionally by sticking a dildo to it and mounting it. This is a simple method but one of my favourites. I feel liberated and wholly in control when using the LoveArc. The angles I can achieve are excellent and I feel like I’m reclaiming my suction cup sex toys. What was fantastic about this position for me is that my vulva would often press against the surface of the LoveArc with each thrust. It added a nice dash of clitoral stimulation as well as making me crave a LoveArc compatible clitoral vibrator that you strap on to the LoveArc. Please make this happen LoveArc!
Depending on where I position my dildo on the LoveArc I can also use a dildo while giving my partner a blowjob, which is pretty much the best of both worlds.
Next I tried flipping the LoveArc over and rocking it for some self-propelled fun. I have to admit this was probably my least favourite position. I just couldn’t help but feel kind of silly as I was cranking the handle. For a brief moment it almost felt as if the LoveArc was a piece of workout gear, it just didn’t do it for me. Perhaps this method would be more fulfilling with a partner but I’m not too sure.
My favourite position with the LoveArc has to be placing it against the wall and using it doggy style. I adore doggy style so to be able to indulge in it with my dildos is divine. Rubbing against my dildos, feeling them glide across my vulva and then sliding them in. It’s a delicious fantasy which is even better in reality. When I use the LoveArc this way I’m in heaven!
Mr. Peaches has been unable to use the LoveArc so far but, based on my experiences, I imagine it would be just as easy (and effective) to use with a suction cup compatible male masturbator.
So, what downsides are there to the LoveArc?
Well, because it’s essentially a surface for dildos you’re pretty much putting all the work it with it, which some might see as a disadvantage. Personally, though, I feel like it makes the LoveArc more versatile because it is unconstrained. You can use it in so many ways compared to a conventional sex machine, there’s just no comparison in terms of versatility.
One thing some people may dislike, though, is that the aluminium body of the LoveArc does feel extremely cold when first using it. It does warm up quickly enough but some people may be averse to its chilly touch. Mr. Peaches is not a fan personally.
And that’s about it for downsides. The LoveArc is so simple that it’s brilliant. As such there’s not much to be said against it. Just get one!
I feel like the amount of exclamation marks I’ve used in this review reveals just how enthusiastic I feel about it. If you have suction cup toys that you feel go a bit underutilized then the LoveArc is the answer to your problems. If you like suction cup toys but wish you could use them in more ways the LoveArc is ideal for you. Basically anyone interested in suction cup toys should also try the LoveArc.
The LoveArc may be pricey but it pays for itself with its pure sexual output and potential. There are so many ways to explore and customize the LoveArc that it practically embodies sexual exploration, and the excitement of that prospect translates during use.
Is every position with the LoveArc a winner? Of course not. However, what the LoveArc can contribute to you sex life far exceeds the ways in which it may under-perform. This is a serious game changer for me in the bedroom, and I don’t say that often.
