The L stands for Love It

Lx-3 is an excellent toy for couples to share or solo male and female play time. This is just about anything you could ask for in a toy: strong and rumbly, waterproof and body-safe, comes with a warranty, easy to clean and quick to charge with a luxurious presentation that can spoil you or whoever you gift this toy. I would buy this toy again and I'm hoping for a 2.0 so I can snap it up too. One caveat: Lx-3 doesn't like the cold.

extremely useful review


The Lux Lx-3 is an outstanding toy, because it has many uses and many features, for both genders.
Ideas for the Lx-3:
1. Prostate and perineum massager
2. Rabbit vibrator
3. Anal toy (double-ended)

I identify as a woman and I absolutely purchased this toy with the intent of using and reviewing it from a woman's perspective. And I have no regrets! Don't write this off as a toy only for men. With conscientious clean-up, you can even share it...

For me, I found that Lux has several great uses, but it shines as an anal toy. This was the toy that I wanted to use as a beginner to anal, and it has more than delivered. It even has two options when used this way. The winged base makes the Lx-3 safe from either direction. I love using it as a petite anal vibrator, getting very strong vibes from the small arm directly. But it also works very well once you've graduated up to the larger arm.

As a rabbit, Lx-3 functions exactly as if a partner were using about two fingers to penetrate vaginally and their thumb to rub against your clitoris. The L-shape is slightly stiff for this, but it definitely works.

On top of this, Lx-3 is incredibly quiet and kicks out some serious vrooms. It's also waterproof and small enough to hide under clothing -- Lx-3 can go anywhere you can or want to.

Material / Texture

Length in hand

The Silicone:
The Lx-3 reminds me of the Leaf toys (indeed, they're made by the same company). Lx-3 is covered in a smooth but not glossy, matte silicone and is firm to the touch. The layer of silicone is mostly thin, with no squishy give on any part of the toy. This type of silicone attracts lint like crazy, though.

There is no texture to Lx-3, though its bulbed curves do provide some sensation. Despite not looking at all realistic, these bulbs do feel somewhat like curled fingers. I think it's awesome.

Lx-3 has no taste, though there is a very faint smell that I associate with silicone to it -- but it's absolutely unnoticeable in use and I really only remarked on it when the toy was first out of the box.
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

I have no idea why L-shaped toys are somewhat rare. I adore this shape and find that it makes some fun mix n' match play time -- as a woman, the number of combinations between vaginal or anal play and then small or large arms is quite satisfying!

For comparison, I found that the short arm's bulb is just about the size of a thumb. It's non-threatening and an easy size to take without any warm-up or experience. The long arm is about two fingers together, slightly curved. The small stem widths make either arm either incredibly comfortable or not much of a stretch, it really depends on your tastes. I found these sizes to be comfortable for me both vaginally and anally, but those who are more experienced or looking for more girth will be disappointed.

But there's an option -- For users who want a little more girth, Lux was smart enough to make this same design in one size up: the Lx-3 Plus.

As you can see, the Lx-3 just about fits into my small hand -- this small size makes it easy to take with you. Unfortunately, Lux did not include a satin storage or travel bag, but the rest of the packaging doesn't disappoint. Also know that Lx-3's single button controls do have a travel lock: simply press the button three times fast. I wouldn't be too worried about the Lx-3 turning on at inopportune times anyway, since it requires a 'press and hold' strategy to both turn on and get stronger in vibrations.
Button location

As I mentioned before, Lux and Leaf are made by the same company, BMS enterprises! Their chargers are exactly the same (right down to the small-text specifications on the back, though I haven't tried to swap their chargers). The silicone is definitely similar, as well as the strength and quality of the vibrations.

Leaf and lux chargers


Personally, I was very satisfied with how rumbly and strong the Lx-3 is. I can discern about 6 levels of steady vibrations, beginning at 1 vroom and ending at 4 vrooms.

As I said before, you must click and hold to turn on the toy; then click and hold to move up through the levels of strength. I personally don't favor this method of control, even though the manual hails it as ' more intuitive' -- no, it's not! If you're looking for a specific level, it'll be hard to find. Luckily, and unlike the Leaf toys, the Lx-3 won't just turn off when you get to the 'top' level, it will just stay on. Click again to turn the toy off.

Motor location
On inidcator

My only complaint is that there aren't two motors, one in each arm! This is a common suggestion for the Lx-3, so I can't wait to see if the company will listen and come out with a 2.0. Even so, I found that direct stimulation with the small arm anally or clitorally made me pretty weak in the knees. Don't underestimate the little guys!

Dc jack and port

I also own the Lx-4 and found that it had a finicky charging port. Not so with the Lx-3! To charge, simply push in the DC jack until it clicks. This connection, for me, is totally secure and I don't need to check on it to know that it's charging. Additionally, Lx-3 charges fast. The typical charge takes about 90 minutes for the same amount of play.

Care and Maintenance

Keep in mind that the DC port of the Lx-3 is located slightly above the wing section, on the longer arm of the toy. Even though this is mostly out of reach of penetration, it likely will still gather some fluids or lube.

Always remember to clean it thoroughly in this area. The entire toy can be submersed for easy cleaning in warm water and soap. I particularly favor a 10% bleach solution as I consider this an anal toy -- the silicone is non-porous, but the small arm has the "Power Bullet" logo that can possibly retain bacteria in tiny crevices. Overall, I'd say Lx-3 is quite easy to clean.

As a premium, 100% silicone toy, you should avoid using silicone lubes with it unless you have done a patch test and it's a very high quality lubricant. Otherwise, the Lx-3 is totally compatible with water-based lubes, which are my favorite. I find the matte silicone 'sucks up' lube during play, so generous usage is recommended.

Possible glitch?
One thing I noticed with Lx-3 is that it seems to dislike the cold. It's winter right now and I keep my toys in a basement, around 65 degrees Fahrenheit. This isn't an excessively cold temperature to me, but I noticed that my Lx-3 would not turn on several times, though I knew it was fully charged. Holding it in my hands, under warm water or simply tucking it under my shirt for a minute or two would solve the problem, and Lx-3 would turn on again. I've never had this problem with a toy before, but I thought it would be worth mentioning.

Lux is, to me, the absolute winner of all packaging. Lelo doesn't hold a candle. Leaf and Zini come close, but Lux is amazing.
Fancy box
In box
Manual and insert

The box Lx-3 came in is very similar to a classy cigar box: hard outer with a flip top lid and even (what a great detail) a sticker that you must cut to first open it, just like an old-timey cigar case. The logo is very fancy and a very complete manual is included.

The toy rests in a foam insert and likewise, the charger has a spot to nestle into. Because of the regular box shape and sturdiness, I can't ask for a better storage and presentation system.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store
Follow-up commentary
This has remained my first and most favored anal toy -- it keeps a charge incredibly well when in storage. Now that it's gotten a little warmer, I haven't seen the 'cold' problem for a long time, but it's something I'll keep my eye on. LX-3 is a little stingy in the number of times used per charge, but its quick charging time makes it bearable.

I've come to really love the graduated idea of using the two arms -- when I feel up to it, I can use the larger arm without buying a new toy and still enjoying vibrations. I just wish there were two motors!
