When shopping for sex toys, bigger dildos and vibrators easily stand out. However, small vibrators shouldn't be overlooked.

After all, smaller options are often quieter while targeting your hottest spots with clitoral and G-spot stimulation. In many cases, they provide more power and pleasure instead of lacking it.

In addition, small vibrators open exciting new doors when it comes to public play because the small size and quiet motor hide the powerful vibrations. This offers a hot new game for couples.

Think about it, teasing your partner in public offers the perfect fantasy-fulfilling foreplay experience. After all, getting a little naughty in places you shouldn't adds to the excitement.

With all that pent up sexual tension, your resulting bedroom sessions will be even steamier.

That means you can get aroused without ripping your partner's clothes off in front of shocked strangers. Instead, public fun can be a sexy secret kept simply between the two of you.

This is made easy with small vibrators turning your everyday lingerie into a pair of vibrating panties. Controlled by a remote or through a smartphone app, public play just became a lot more discreet.

Which brand offers the best small vibrators: Lovense or Ohmibod?

With many on the market, choosing between small vibrator products may prove difficult. To narrow down your search, we focused on the top two contenders: the Lovense Lush and the Ohmibod Esca.

Keep reading to learn more about why these vibrators are small but mighty and how their powerful vibrations make public and private play more fun.

WHAT IS LOVENSE LUSH?

If you would like to learn more about Lush 2, read my detailed review here.

First, let's break down a bit on the background of the Lovense Lush and its product evolution.

The Lovense Lush is a small wearable egg vibrator controlled by bluetooth technology that is intended to provide pleasure wherever you are.

By connecting the Lush to the smartphone app, you unlock features like customizable vibration patterns, capabilities to sync to music and voices, and device control from anywhere in the world.

In 2015, the Lush first made media headlines by coming out as the first vibrator to be controlled by an Apple watch. After three years and 300,000 vibrators sold, Lovense released the second generation Lush.

Taking negative reviews from the first round into consideration, Lovense increased the power and functionality in the Lush 2. This made long-distance play easier and situated the vibrator controls in a more accessible spot.

With the new upgrades, Lovense deems the Lush 2 four times more powerful than any other vibrating egg on the market.

When it comes to quality, the company offers a one-year warranty on its products as added insurance.

WHAT IS OHMIBOD ESCA?

If you would like to learn more about Esca, read my detailed review here.

Next up, while the Lovense Lush provides just about everything you could want in a small vibrator, there is another product on the market that gives it some stiff competition.

Similarly, the Ohmibod Esca uses bluetooth capabilities. However, it also takes modern technology one step further by allowing connections to VR content and using LED lights to deliver real-time feedback on how well the vibrator is working on a specific area.

Like the Lovense Lush, Ohmibod released two generations of the Esca vibrator. When it came to revamping their small vibrators, Ohmibod focused on slightly increasing the size and bettering flexibility. With the easier maneuverability, the Esca 2 replaced and discontinued the original model.

For added fun, the Esca 2 currently syncs to all Ohmibod and Kiiroo toys. Similar to a diet or exercise tracker, the smartphone app also allows you to track your weekly orgasms and pleasure goals.

HOW DO LUSH 1 AND LUSH 2 WORK?

More specifically, let's now dive into how each product delivers its pleasure. First up, both versions of the Lovense Lush have a C-shaped curved design to target the G-spot. The upper antenna of Lush 2 offers some clitoral stimulation but is mostly placed for wireless connectivity.

To use either Lush product, the bulkier end is inserted, while the antenna end bends and clips it in place. However, before the fun can start, the toy needs to be charged for around an hour and a half.

Once charged, both the Lush and Lush 2 can last up to around three hours on the lowest settings and around two hours on the higher settings.

Overall, the app comes with seven preset vibration patterns and options for customizable patterns. The settings are controlled through a smartphone app called "Lovense Remote".

HOW DO ESCA 1 AND ESCA 2 WORK?

First of all, the production of the original Esca (aka. Esca 1) has been discontinued because of the launch of Esca 2. The concept of Esca 1 has been kept on Esca 2 and some updates have been made. 

The Esca 2 small vibrator comes with a slightly straighter C-shaped design. Once again, the bulkier end is inserted for G-spot stimulation.

Unlike the Lush 2, the Esca 2 has a light on the upper end that offers signals to your partner on vibrator performance, making the experience more interactive. This relies on sensors that measure your heart beat. In addition, the lit tip offers dual clitoral stimulation.

Before use, the Esca 2 also needs to be charged for an hour and a half and its battery life offers use for up to three hours.

However, the Esca 2 has less settings than the Lush 2. Its three options include high vibration and full LED lights, low vibration with full LED lights and high vibration with no lights.

In addition, it can be turned off if you want to wear it without any noise or sync to music on club mode through the smartphone app.

To understand which small vibrators will best satisfy your needs, check out our detailed comparison of the Lush and Esca products.

This will give you a better understanding of which product pros you need in your life and which cons you can't personally put up with.

1. Lush 2 vs Esca 2

By now, you've likely realized that the true competition between Lush and Esca concerns their second generation models, which largely improved connectivity.

These small vibrators operate on heightened bluetooth systems that improve both short and long-distance play.

The Lush 2 has its wireless connectors located in the antenna while the Esca 2 establishes connection from its flexible stem.

With connection, many reviewers preferred the Esca 2, which responded more quickly than the Lush 2.

On the other hand, the Lush 2 vibrator offered quieter vibrations and more pleasure pattern customizations in its smartphone app than the Esca 2, which may just make it worth the wait.

Both the Lush 2 and Esca 2 have pros and cons when it comes to private play, making this category really come down to your personal preferences.

The LED lights on the Esca 2 make it more ideal for private play, where the lights won't give any secrets away.

However, the Lush 2 beats the Esca 2 in the private play category when it comes to bringing foreplay fun to the bath or shower. The Lush 2 is waterproof, while the Esca 2 is only water-resistant.

In terms of storage, the Esca 2 comes with a privacy pouch, while the Lush 2 requires separate accommodations.

Finally, the Lush 2 G-spot stimulator is a bit more curved than the Esca 2 design, which can increase the intensity of positive sensations.

Both products are made from body-safe silicone, which is best used with water-based lubricants.

2. Lush 1 vs Lush 2

Like we mentioned above, Lovense largely upgraded its Lush product between the original and second designs. So much so, that Lovense currently lists the original Lush as final stock on its site.

The first major improvement was moving the control button so that it can be accessed to turn the device on and off while wearing it.

Next, Lovense added a vibration motor that was slightly bigger and more powerful to deliver stronger vibrations and sensations.

Finally, to provide a more stable connection, the bluetooth connection chip was improved in the Lush 2.

Also benefiting play, the battery life was extended a bit in the second design.

3. Esca 1 vs Esca 2

When it comes to the changes in the Esca, Ohmibod revamped the stem, making it more flexible and more conducive to various body types. In addition, they made the vibrator slightly bigger for deeper stimulation.

The original logo was also on a metal ring. Whereas, the new logo is on a silicone ring. This change offers better body-safe materials and makes the Esca 2 an overall safer product than its original design.

Like the Lush 2, the Esca 2 also stepped things up in terms of a stable connection, thanks to updated PCBA chips. In addition, they upped the battery size to make the toy last longer.

Finally, the Esca 2 is actually a new player when it comes to public play. The original design always kept the light on, making it difficult to conceal.

However, the second-generation option offers the function to turn the light off, allowing it to provide pleasure undetected.

FINAL THOUGHTS: Who Is The Winner & Where To Buy?

When it comes to a winner, the clear choice is between the Lush 2 and Esca 2. However, the decision comes down to your personal preferences and needs.

If you are searching for a toy for public play, both small vibrators offer discreet internal options with wireless capabilities.

For noisy public places like bars or clubs, the slightly louder sound of the Esca 2 vibrator will be masked just fine.

However, for quieter public areas like restaurants or movie theaters, the Lush 2 is the better option because of how well it conceals the vibration sounds.

The Esca 2 offers the better option for impatient couples because it connects faster, while the Lush 2 is more suited to adventurous couples because it offers more customization.

When it comes to private play, the Esca 2 offers useful feedback in the bedroom, while the waterproof Lush 2 provides a fun companion for playing in the bathroom.

If the Lush 2 sounds more your style, it is best to make your purchase from the Lovense online store to avoid counterfeit offers. In addition, this gives you access to company discounts exclusive to the store.

On the other hand, if Esca 2 is the one getting you going, the online store is actually the place you should avoid, in my opinion, because customer service is not very responsive. It's easier to have a better experience purchasing through SheVibe or Lovehoney.

With either decision, you'll be delivered mind-blowing orgasms. The question is more, where and how fast you want to get there.
