I estimate that at least half of the sex-tech entrepreneurs I’ve written about over the years are men who say they invented their product or service at the prodding of their wives and girlfriends. In many cases, the women keep their day jobs to support the household and prop up the business, and the men [...]

Sure, the hand is dismembered, but if you’re into the game, you won’t even notice. If you have a powerful enough imagination to hook yourself into a game like this (and I do), a little thing like a Thing avatar isn’t going to toss you out of the scene.

It’s a little bit Rube Goldberg for both of the purposes people are talking about, but who cares. It’s a robot! (And reminding me of a Big Bang Theory episode about a robot arm…)

I don’t know if where I live is considered “remote” or “rural,” but I do have to drive into town to pick up my mail. I try to get to it once a week so that mail doesn’t languish too long. Usually, They give you 10 days to respond to annoying stuff like insurance expiration [...]

Debby Herbenick gives the iPhone 4 and FaceTime video chat a turgid, throbbing thumbs up as a cybersex platform. I’ve been taking another look at the current options for teledildonics, so of course my first thought was “sounds great, and will it work with the OhMiBod?”

Let me start by saying that the heat functionality makes up for a lot in this new vibrator from Pipedream Products. But it doesn’t make it worth $160 to $300 retail. Maybe $80, and definitely $60. But not $300.

For my first test, I chose the high [...]

In other words, it’s another consumer-level entry into the realm of internet-enabled [...]

The G Ki g-spot vibrator hit the shelves about the same time the argument about the g-spot not existing hit the headlines. I missed most of the furor, though, as I was busy testing the G Ki instead of responding to bait like, “The controversial G-spot has no genetic component and therefore probably doesn’t exist,” [...]

In the aftermath of the Adult Entertainment Expo last weekend, one of the rumbles making its way through the bloglands is “are we sure we want to see porn in 3D?” Or, on the performers’ side, “I’m damn sure I don’t want to make porn in 3D! HD is bad enough!”
Objections range from the glasses [...]

LoveHoney sent me a sample of this toy and it’s waiting for me at home. I’m on a business trip for my day job, so I don’t have first-hand experience to share with you yet.
It’s interesting and cute, a home version of the intimidating, industrial, and totally hot Chainsaw Masochist at fuckingmachines.com.
I’m annoyed by [...]

Why? Because the new vibe from Irish company Caden Enterprises is the world’s first 100% green sex toy. It’s made from totally recycled material and it never needs [...]

I recently got a new laptop, and it has the little webcam thingie embedded in the frame around the display. And oh what an unflattering image it creates! When I angle the screen for best productivity, I end up shooting video from below my chin. This not only gives a nice up-the-nose perspective to anyone [...]
