-s only spawns a regular shell as the user; to get a login shell, it's
`sudo -i`.

That being said, from what I've experienced, sudo on its own (be it with
-s or -i) is not sufficient to control user sessions (I don't know dbus
well enough to explain why, though). What I usually do is:

    sudo machinectl --uid user2 shell .host
