Few things sow distrust faster than speculation that apps and internet-connected devices are surveilling their own users in secret. Facebook mining your browsing habits to serve ads is one thing. But what if you found out your sex toy was taping you?
On a recent trip to Berlin, Alex Lomas’ acquaintance posed him a challenge: Can you find a Bluetooth-enabled butt plug in the wild, and can you turn it on without its owner’s help? Lomas, a penetration tester with the British cybersecurity firm Pen Test Partners, pulled out his phone, consulted the detection app…
Liz Klinger admits that the Lioness isn’t the world’s greatest vibrator. It won’t work perfectly for every person who uses it. “No vibrator is for everybody. You’d have to have, like, a Play-Doh thing that has a motor in it,” she told me in a crowded coffee house at lunch hour.
Staring at this squishy little vibrator, that looks more like something you’d find on the beach than in a sex store, two thoughts went through my mind. The first was that I now understood what the seashells in Demolition Man were for. The second thought was perhaps more relevant to Tenga’s $120 Iroha Kushi: It is the…
When it comes to gadgets, few bonds are more sacred than the one shared by a sex toy and its user. Sadly, one Illinois woman claims her smartphone-connected vibrator betrayed that love, sending (extremely) personal data to Canadian dildo maker Standard Innovation.
The vagina and clitoris are mysterious things. No, seriously they are. Scientists make big bucks studying the penis, but the vagina and clitoris often languish in official research circles. They languish in the bedroom too.
Know someone who enjoys the stimulation of a good book? What about someone who enjoys stimulation of another sort? This holiday season, Throb has got some great gift ideas to show your special someone that you appreciate both their mind and their body.
Swedish adult toy designer LELO has released a $139.00 juiced-up update to the LILY, its decade-old clitoral vibrator. The new version, called LILY 2, is still small, smooth, and comma-shaped, but now sports a more powerful motor and a surface that’s infused with a purportedly aphrodisiacal fragrance.
A vibrator’s basic job is really quite simple, so long as you’re using it as a sex toy instead of unclenching a charley horse or working out some lower back pain. Vibrators are supposed to rapidly stimulate sexually sensitive sensory neurons. That’s it. They could look like anything. But until recently, they often…
The Hot Octopuss Pulse II is billed as the world’s first “guybrator”, and claims to be fun to use flaccid or erect. I have to admit that I was exceedingly skeptical when I first heard about this product, but my trusted male reviewer helped me realize that this could be a very fun purchase for some guys.
If Crave’s Flex is the Linux of vibrators, with its long menu of settings and programmable waveforms, Minna Life’s Limon is more like a slimmed down iPhone app. It lets you change just one variable – the strength of the buzz – with an equally simple and intuitive method: how hard you squeeze.
Everything is hackable — you can jailbreak your phone to get better apps, but you can also mod your own eyeballs to have night vision. Where do we go from there? Your libido, of course. Programmable vibrators are the new frontier in customizable gadgets, and we got a taste of what they’re like.
Let's face it. There are two reasons you'd want to use a vibrator: because you are a gadget-lover who can't imagine anything, including sex, without a little technology involved; or because you just want to have an orgasm, and fast. But with the Crave Vesper, there is a third possibility.
This video wins today's pseudoscience quackery sweepstakes. It's an ad for "DEXTRÜS," a vibrator which promises to make you smarter. But wait — there's more. Because it's all based on "research" into how left-handed people have orgasms.
For all the mystique surrounding the female orgasm, vibrators are a surefire way for lots (and lots) of ladies to get off. I recently took a tour of Crave, a sex toy company that prototypes and fabricates its products in San Francisco; here's a peek inside your new favorite mini pleasure machine.
Swedish company Foreo's got a silicone toothbrush called Issa. It vibrates like your Sonicare, and comes in woozy pastel colors. Let's not kid ourselves: this is a sex toy disguised as a dental revolution.
Sorry, fans of pop culture-themed sexual aids. I regret to inform you these Avengers vibrators aren't real, but instead concepts designed by artist Balazs Sarmai that badly need to become real. Come, let's assemble the team!
Vibrators are typically strong, powerful, dumb pipes. Which is mostly fine! But sometimes you'd like something more... nuanced. Vibease, which is supposedly the world's first wearable "smart" vibrator, claims to have the sort of sexy thoughtfulness that can get any woman off. It's basically a read along vibrator for…
Holier-than-thou bicycle enthusiasts have been touting the benefits of their cleaner, healthier method of transportation for ages. But thanks to the UK's leading website for lascivious adult pleasures, the act of bicycle riding is about to get a whole lot less—well, holy. That's right, SexShop365 is proud to present…
