Voila my experiences with Lelo’s Loki Wave prostate massagers (versions 1 and 2). I had my eyes on the Loki Wave 1 for several years, so when they offered to send it to me I couldn’t resist. Most recently, I was sent the Loki Wave 2 as well, so this review will cover both versions as well as the differences between the Loki Wave 1 and 2. Read on for my review of the Lelo Loki Wave!
Lelo sent me the Loki Wave 1 & 2 in return for an honest review. This page may contain affiliate links and if you use them, it helps my blog out a lot!

It’s blue!! My Loki Wave 1 is blue! You have no idea how happy it makes me to be reviewing a prostate vibrator that is such a bright colour for a change. I was surprised that even the white handle of the Loki Wave is made of silicone but I later found out that this is an important detail for usage (you need it for grip). The Loki Wave 2 that I have is black on the other hand, a more classic sex toy colour.
Both versions of the Lelo Loki Wave are beasts. They each have two strong vibration motors in them. Each version has one motor in the insertable arm and another on the external perineum arm. The Loki Wave’s most special feature is the moving internal arm on the toy (named Wavemotion by Lelo). The internal arm moves back and forth with a large range of motion, Lelo describes it as a “come hither” motion. Both versions of the toy have Wavemotion.
One more thing about the vibration / moving arm features of the toy. Both versions of the Loki Wave remember the last settings that you used, so when you switch either back on they will be using the same settings. Not a lot of toys do that, so I really appreciate that these do.
The main difference between the two toys is in the vibration patterns. The Loki Wave v1 has 10 vibration/stimulation patterns and the Loki Wave v2 has 12 patterns. Both toys have a good range of intensity and I’ll get back to comparing them directly later on (they’re very similar for the most part).
In both versions of the toy, the most subtle vibration feels very light and the most intense level is super rumbly and powerful. That’s exactly what you want from an intensity setting in a vibrator (the ability to have very subtle and very intense vibrations). The motors in both versions of the Loki Wave are very rumbly and profound. They don’t buzz, the vibration waves penetrate deeply which is considered the gold standard by many (including me).
The packaging from Lelo was very discreet in 2021 when I received the Loki Wave 1 and still the same in 2023 when I received the second version. When both the toys arrived, they came in a brown box with an obscure company name. Most impressively though, Lelo wraps the toys inside with a semi-opaque black mesh which obscures the toys inside should anyone open the outer package. The packaging itself is quite nice, so would make a nice gift for valentines day etc.
The sizes of these prostate massagers are suitable for intermediate and advanced users. The thickness of the largest insertable part of the Loki Wave (version 1 and 2) is 1.6 inches in diameter. That is very manageable for me and feels very satisfying. Beginners will want to start out with a smaller toy before going to either the version 1 or 2 of the Loki Wave though.
Both versions of the Loki Wave have a battery life of 2 hours which is very good because with prostate massage, the climax sometimes takes a long time to build. The charging time is also 2 hours for both toys, so not too bad. The best thing about the Lelo Loki Wave’s battery is that you can still use the toy while it is charging. A slight downside is that the charging cable is very short. Not a huge deal but for example, I needed to put my extension lead on the bed to use the Loki Wave while it charged.
Both versions of the Loki Wave are completely waterproof, so easy to wash and you can use either in the bath if you want.
Next let’s move on to the fun part… my experiences with the toys!
Experience with the Lelo Loki Wave
Small specification here, most of my experiences were with the Loki Wave 1. I later acquired the Loki Wave 2 and my experiences with that second version of the toy are the same as with the first version (they’re both almost identical). So whether you buy v1 or v2, my experiences here are relevant! Everything that I wrote for the Loki Wave 1 here still stands for version 2.
My first masturbation session with the Loki Wave was a two hour affair. Usually that wouldn’t be good but in this case, it is very good. I have to tell you too much information here but damn… I just couldn’t stop climaxing with the Loki Wave. Cum literally just poured out of me for two hours. I could have carried on and gotten even more orgasms if it wasn’t for the fact that I have life to attend to. It was exhausting and amazing all wrapped up into one. I slept a little bit afterwards… that’s how intense my orgasms were.
The Lelo Loki Wave can give me full prostate orgasms more quickly than any other toy I own. During that first session, I had three intense prostate orgasms. For the first two orgasms I didn’t touch my penis at all and even for the last orgasm I barely touched it.
Holding and gripping the Loki Wave
One important thing for you to know is that if you have very weak wrists, the Loki Wave might put a lot of stress on them while the main arm of the toy is moving inside you. You need to grip the handle of the Loki Wave quite firmly in order to make the toy move inside you and not outside you. The handle of the toy itself will bend and move if you don’t hold it or trap it with something. The toy can still be used hands-free, just know that it may be less intense that way in certain positions.
If you don’t want to hold the toy… you can get an almost as intense feeling by placing the base of the toy on your mattress and then letting the toy move inside you hands-free that way. The mattress of a bed has the effect of trapping the handle of the Loki Wave, which prevents it moving around as much while you’re not holding it. It gives almost the same intensity as if I hold the toy firmly with my hand.
I’m happy to report though that the Loki Wave feels very ergonomic to me. As I said, the only people who won’t like holding it are those with weak wrists but any toy of this design would be the same. The thing that Lelo has done well with the Loki Wave is to cover the handle in silicone. Usually I’m used to the handle of a toy being in ABS plastic, which is glossy and slippery. The silicone handle of the Loki Wave gives me extra grip, which is MUCH appreciated with this toy. The Loki Wave has a big range of motion, so that silicone grip power helps me keep it in place.
A note from version 2 of the Loki Wave while we’re talking of ergonomic handling. Lelo says they redesigned the handle on the Loki Wave 2 but to me it feels the same as version 1’s handle. Maybe there’s a difference but I can’t see it to be honest. Anyway, both toys handle well.
Both version 1 and 2 of the Loki Wave have the same size, buttons and materials. It is actually difficult to tell them apart when they’re side by side. If mine were the both the same colour, I honestly wouldn’t be able to tell the difference.
I’ve used both versions of the Lelo Loki Wave quite a lot since receiving them and they just work every single time. I love it when I receive a toy and it’s so easy to use. The Loki Wave is effective 100% of the time for me, I’ve never had any failed orgasms or disappointing experiences with either version of the toy.
There were two times when due to circumstances, the Loki Wave was put under difficult testing conditions. The first was when I forgot to charge the toy. The battery died inside me after about 5 minutes of usage. I didn’t realise at the time that the Loki Wave is functional when plugged in, so you can imagine how happy I was that I could finish masturbating and reach climax!
The second time I put the Loki Wave under a difficult situation was when I received a delivery and had to stop temporarily. During one session after about 15 minutes of play, I received a call from a delivery guy, who told me he was downstairs waiting for me to sign for a package. The Loki Wave’s handle is too big to keep wearing under trousers, so I had to take it out, put some trousers on and run downstairs. Despite it not being ideal to run down the stairs full of lube, I think I got away with it. The best thing was though, that I was able to pick up right where I left off with the Loki Wave (about 5 mins after stopping) and I reached climax again.
Every orgasm I have with the Loki Wave toys is mind blowingly strong. Whether I’m masturbating my penis or only using one of the toys, the orgasms cause me to lose grip on reality a little bit for a few minutes. Truly awesome toys.
Why is the Loki Wave so effective at giving p-spot orgasms?
Why does the Loki Wave get me to prostate heaven faster than any other I’ve tried? There are actually three reasons. The moving arm, the vibration strength and the vibration patterns. Let’s dig a little deeper into the sensations of each of those things.
Reason 1: The moving arm and the “come hither” motion
The main reason for these toys being so good is the “come hither” motion they both have. The range of motion on the arms of the Loki Wave toys feel SO intense inside me. Usually with moving toys, the sensation is subtle but that’s not the case with the Lelo Loki Wave 1 or 2. The arm of the toys move slowly up and down but Lelo weren’t shy about the amount they move. I can feel them strongly pressing my prostate over and over again.
Eve sometimes gives me manual prostate massage (with her fingers) and the Lelo Loki Wave is the closest I’ve gotten to that manual sensation of the fingers. This is impressive because it’s rare to find a prostate toy that moves as much as this. The only thing that the Loki Wave is missing is variable speeds for the moving arm. An actual person usually varies the speed of their fingers during a prostate massage, neither the Loki Wave 1 or 2 do that.
Reason 2: The vibration motors are strong
The second reason the Loki Wave gives me multiple orgasms is because of the strong vibration motors. I was mainly interested in the “come hither” motion of the Loki Wave 1 so I didn’t actually expect much at all from the vibration motor in it. The vibration in the Loki Wave 1 is INTENSE. The Loki Wave 2 has equally powerful vibrations.
The main vibrator is seriously powerful and so fucking rumbly. None of that buzzy vibration crap that is in some toys… the Loki Wave’s vibrations penetrate deeply and without numbing me. The vibration motor in the insertable arm feels like it is sending slow waves through my body (a pulse), it’s pretty incredible when combined with the patterns (which I’ll get to in a moment).
The vibration motor in the second arm is more subtle because it rests on the perineum. Even though I describe that perineum vibrator as more subtle, doesn’t mean that it isn’t still strong. It is very present in the sensation and plays well with the main motor. The only thing I wish with the perineum vibration arm is that it was longer. I would love it if it could reach my balls because having stimulation there too would be so good.
Reason 3: The vibration patterns
Lelo paid a lot of attention to the vibration patterns in the Loki Wave 1 and 2. There are 10 different patterns in version 1 and 12 in version 2. You can also isolate the moving arm and have it without any vibration if you choose. The main vibrator feels like a strong, rumbling drilling sensation but because of the pattern speeds, it feels like being milked… which is exactly the effect these patterns have.
There are two particular patterns in both versions of the toy that alternate between the two vibration motors slowly and damn they feel good. I can honestly say that those two vibration patterns are my favourites out of all the other prostate toys I’ve tried. I DID NOT expect to be saying that with the Loki Wave because as I already mentioned, I thought this toy was mainly about the moving arm of the toy and not the vibration. The two patterns that I’m talking about (the ones that alternate between the two vibrators) make the toy feel like it is sending pulses through my body.
Partner Play with the Loki Wave
It’s been a long time since I did a proper ‘partner play’ section to one of my prostate toy posts. The thing is, I usually use my prostate toys alone because it’s just a great way of relaxing alone. With the Loki Wave though, I just HAD to try it in bed with Eve.
I asked Eve to hold the toy inside me after I inserted it and then she gave me a blowjob while pressing the different buttons. Fucking hell it felt good. As usual with proper prostate massage, my penis went soft a few times. It’s ok because Eve’s a pro and knows that means good things for prostate massage. She carried on licking my penis and rubbing her breasts over me as I was building to climax.
When I climaxed, I yelled really loudly. I’m not gonna lie… Eve was a bit scared. The orgasm was so intense though. She was covered afterwards. When she asked me if I was ok, I couldn’t reply. I was a mess. A mumbling mess of a human being, who just had a supernova level orgasm. When I was finally sentient again, I informed her that I was indeed very very ok.
No long distance control
Those of you who have been reading my blog a long time will know that the two other prostate vibrators that I’ve often described as my favourites are the We-Vibe Vector and the Lovense Edge 2. Those two toys have app controls that allow the toys to be controlled over long distance by a remote partner.
Neither version of the Loki Wave has a remote control or an app that allows the toys to be controlled by remote partners. This is the Loki Wave’s biggest disadvantage when I compare it with the Edge 2 and Vector prostate toys. To be perfectly honest, I still prefer the Loki Wave despite this, because the sensation is that much better.
If Lelo make a Loki Wave 3, I recommend they give long distance control to it. I don’t think the Loki Wave would benefit from a physical remote but having a remote partner control the vibration patterns and especially the moving arm of the toy through an app would be really amazing.
Video Demo of Loki Wave
Here’s a little demo of the Loki Wave 1 and 2 for you to see how they move and what they sound like. They’re actually quite quiet compared to other vibrators I have. Not silent… but I never worry about my neighbours hearing. For the order of the video, version 1 is shown first, then version 2, then a comparison.
How to clean the Loki Wave
Both versions of the Loki Wave are covered entirely in silicone and are waterproof, so they’re easy to clean. You just need to rinse them with water after usage and rub them with some mild soap. I also use a sex toy cleaning spray but you don’t have to.
The Loki Wave being made entirely out of silicone means that a lot of dust has the potential to stick to it, so always store it in the satin pouch that Lelo provides with the toy. I recommend getting the toys in blue or violet, because the black one shows up dust way more.
The difference between the Loki Wave 2 and 1
Alright so if you’ve read this far, you’re probably wondering whether you should get the new Loki Wave 2 or go for the cheaper Loki Wave 1. You probably already know that version 1 has 10 stimulation/vibration patterns and version 2 has 12. Version 2 of the Loki Wave also has three colours to choose from instead of two.
Lelo claims that they have completely redesigned the handle to make the Loki Wave 2 more ergonomic but both toys look and feel the same to me. Maybe the Loki Wave 2 has a very slightly wider handle… but honestly I’m not even sure – the change is so subtle I have difficulty seeing or feeling it. No biggy in my opinion though, because version 1 was already pretty ergonomic anyway.
Blind test of the vibration power in Version 1 and 2 of the Loki Wave
My girlfriend and I both did a blind test with the Loki Wave 1 and 2 to determine if we could tell the difference between the toys’ vibration power. Short answer – barely.
Blind test 1 (me): My girlfriend passed me the two Loki Wave toys twice while they were on their maximum vibration setting. On both occasions I correctly guessed which one was which. Honestly though, the difference is tiny. The only reason I can tell is because I’ve handled both toys so much and have remembered the very subtle change. I can’t say one is more powerful than the other but there is a very slight difference in frequency (to me).
Blind test 2 (my girlfriend): I passed my girlfriend both versions of the Loki Wave in the same way she had to me. She incorrectly guessed both times. For her they feel like the same toy and the vibration intensity between them seems identical to her. She has less experience with the Loki Wave toys so her experience is more likely to be yours if you haven’t handled them before.
Which version of the Loki Wave do I prefer? Version 1 or 2?
After trying both toys, I honestly don’t have a preference. To me they’re both so similar that they may as well be the same toy. If you want two more stimulation patterns then get the Loki Wave 2 but apart from that, there’s not much different about it. The Loki Wave 2 has an additional colour option of violet too, so if you prefer the look of that one then go for version 2. For me, blue is still the best colour so I’d just go for version 1 and spend the difference on lube.
What’s similar about the toys? Almost everything. The batteries have the same playtime and charge time, the size and weight of each version is basically the same. As you can see from our blind test, even the motors seem practically identical between the toys. Version 2 of the Loki Wave is more like version 1.2. Don’t sweat the decision… either version of the Loki Wave is good. The best vibration/stimulation modes are in both versions of the toy.
Should owners of the Loki Wave 1 get the Loki Wave 2?
If you already own the Loki Wave 1 then there’s no point in getting the Loki Wave 2. The Loki Wave 2 is great but the update between the toys isn’t very substantial so you won’t gain much by upgrading. As I mentioned, the Loki Wave 2 is more version 1.2, the difference is small.
Concluding my review of the Loki Wave
It turns out that Lelo didn’t leave many stones unturned with the Loki Wave. Both versions are near perfect toys. They didn’t get the Loki Wave toys as good as they are by just slamming some electronics together and covering them with silicone. The team who designed the Loki Wave 1 clearly did a hell of a lot of research and development on it. To get a toy this well made requires a master’s touch… and the Loki Wave certainly has that. The Loki Wave 2 carries on that trend and includes two additional stimulation patterns, plus an extra colour to choose from.
Both versions of the Loki Wave are more on the large size for a prostate vibrators and the fact that they move up and down gives the impression of a larger size. For an advanced user like me, the Loki Wave’s size is perfect but if you’re a beginner, you might want to start with something smaller first. Do come back to the Loki Wave and buy it when you’re ready though because honestly, it’s worth remembering.
The intensity of my orgasms with the Loki Wave 1 and 2 are immense and right now, they’re my favourite prostate vibrators. The Edge 2 by Lovense was my previous favourite and that thing is awesome, so this should tell you how good the Loki Wave 1 and 2 are.
Like I mentioned in the difference section, the Loki Wave 1 and 2 are very similar. Don’t waste too much of your time deciding between them because they’re that similar that it doesn’t matter. You won’t have a better time with one than the other so just pick the one you prefer the sound or look of.
My Wishlist for Loki Wave 3
There are just a few very minor details that prevents the Loki Wave 1 or 2 getting a full 10/10. Here is what Lelo can do to make the next version of the Loki Wave perfect:
- Give it an app for remote partners to control it over long distance.
- Lengthen the perineum arm so that it can stimulate base of the penis (located under the balls).
- Give it a longer charging cable.
If we get remote control features on a future model, it would also be good if the “come hither” motion could respond to the gestures of a remote partner. That would really give a lot of interactivity to the Loki Wave and make it feel like a real fingertip prostate massage.
Thanks very much to Lelo for sending me the Loki Wave 2 and 1! I’m equally impressed with both versions of the toy.
Despite the lack of remote control features, I’m giving both versions of this toy 9.8/10. It’s impossible for me to give it a lower score than that because the Loki Wave just feels too good. I highly, highly recommend either version of this toy.
