Power Up by Jacking Off

0

by Chelsea

Leave it to the brilliant minds at PornHub to harness the natural power of masturbation to save the planet!

Meet the WankBand, wearable device that, according to the site, allows you to “love the planet while you love yourself”. A kinetic charger inside the band creates and stores energy while you jack off that you can then use to power your cell phone, your laptop, or any other devices. Though the Wankband isn’t available yet, PornHub is recruiting Be(a)ta testers.

Your move, Apple Watch.

Put Down the Phone.

phone-during-sex

A survey from Durex found that 15% of respondents would take a call or answer a text message during sex, while over 5% of those surveyed admitted to using Facebook during sex.

Let’s assume that some of those people are checking their phone as part of a sexy game: “Let’s see how long you can focus on online banking while I’m spanking you,” that kind of thing. Good for you, folks! Go forth and Facebook! As long as you’re not panting and moaning into the ear of some poor customer service person, you have our blessing.

We’re also assuming that there are good reasons to stop everything and pick up: the unexpected call from a sick loved one that makes you feel panicky, a guest calling repeatedly from outside your apartment to say that they’ve arrived early, and so on.

No, this one goes out to all of the folks who are answering their phones, texting, or like-ing thoughtlessly, out of habit, without their partner’s go-ahead. We don’t usually like to be proscriptive here, but just stop. Don’t do that anymore. That is so rude.

This has been a public service announcement.

Where Do Vibrators Come From?

crave vibes

With sex toy technology getting more and more advanced, most of us have no idea what goes into making our favorite high end, multi-function, rechargeable silicone vibrators. Luckily, Gizmodo took a tour of Crave, the San Francisco-based company responsible for the ultra-chic Duet vibe, and reported back to the rest of us.

duet vibe

As it turns out, the process of making a Duet vibrator is pretty straightforward to explain, if not to accomplish: pour silicone into a compression molder (which the folks at Crave call the “vibrator waffle maker,” since it basically works like one), assemble a lot of tiny bits of machine by hand, put it all together, and then turn a batch on en masse to see if they work. Simple, right? Sure, once you’ve designed a functional vibrator and have the technical expertise to build a motor.

This Month in Online Dating

2

by thepleasurechest

anxious in front of a computer

Lately, we can’t go anywhere on the internet without hearing about a new dating site, hookup app, or some variation thereof. Folks who are looking for lasting love, a one-night stand, or something in the middle are spoiled for choice. We decided to make things a little easier by compiling the best few things we’ve read recently, so that you can stay savvy about virtual courtship. Enjoy!

Earlier this month, Nerve covered Hinge, an app that hooks you up with your friends’ friends, through Facebook. (For the awkward set-up that you engineer yourself!)

“This is the post-data revolution app, something that doesn’t play upon the information we’ve groomed for the public with a fine-toothed comb, but instead, it takes the information we’ve been voluntarily sending out into the ether of the web for years, for better or for worse.”

Now, we’re hearing about Pure, a new all-genders casual hookup app that cuts right to the chase. From New York Magazine:

 “On Pure, users designate their gender and the gender(s) of the people they’d like to sleep with, specify whether they are able to host or not, and are shown any other willing users in the surrounding area, each with an “Okay” or “No Way” prompt. When two users are mutually attracted, they’re given each others’ coordinates to meet up. There are no profiles, no lengthy chat sessions, and all unfulfilled requests vanish after an hour.”

For folks who prefer a more traditional dating site, in which you exchange messages before meeting up, advice columnist Captain Awkward offers the most practical advice we’ve heard on the subject. For example:

“When you write to someone for the first time, follow the alliterative trinity of:

- Short
- Simple
- Specific

Initial greeting script: ‘Hi, I really like your profile, especially (where you said x cool thing)(the fact that you like x piece of media that I also like)(the photo of you where you are doing or wearing awesome stuff). Where did you find your (cosplay element)(unique bookcase)(jazz record collection)(fancy shoes)?’”

We strongly encourage you to check out the rest, here.

Once you’ve chosen your site or app, you’ll usually have to make a profile. You could try to wow your potential mates with your wit, your collection of exciting hobbies, and your highbrow tastes in reading and viewing material. Alternatively, you could just use this random profile generator, which combines some of the most common elements of online dating profiles into… basically nonsense. We ended up with sentences like,

“Using my farmshare I’m just a regular guy I love the smell of down to earth Infinite Jest vinyl records.”

and

“Listening to music skiing feminism I’m not good at filling out these things.”

We think we come off looking pretty good.

3D Cybersex is Here

by thepleasurechest

3D cybersex

Sexting is so last year. Soon, you’ll be able to use Chathouse3D, a cybersex program that will allow its users to act out their dirty talk using 3D avatars. It looks a bit like The Sims, with a lot of hardcore sex. Users will be able to interact with each other, or go into “voyeur mode,” which will allow them to watch other users’ sex scenes, with or without being seen.

Chathouse3D is designed to be used with the (truly massive) Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, for the full 3D experience.  You can check out a video of both the headset and the game itself, or even sign up to be a beta tester, here. (NSFW times a million.)

Robots Are the Future of Dating

foot sniffing dog

Today, Nerve posted a list of wacky new technological gadgets that can double as dating aides. These include the dog robot, pictured above, which checks your feet for unseemly odor before you head out the door. We’re probably the most excited about the enormous robot servant that uses motion-tracking sensors to accurately refill your cup as you reach for it. It’s perfect for when you want to take your sweetheart on a date to a sci-fi utopia, before the inevitable robot uprising. Cheers!

Are You Good in Bed? Ask Your Phone.

The joke that there’s an app for everything is an old one. Well, now there’s an app for tracking your sexual performance. Spreadsheets  measures the duration of your sexual encounter, your thrusts per minute (TPM) and your “decibel peak” – that is, how loud you got. It also keeps a record of your averages and offers you the option of earning “achievements” by completing sexy challenges: having sex five times on a Sunday earns you the Lazy Sunday achievement, for instance.

Rachel Kramer Bussel, one of our favorite writers and editors of erotica, tried the app out, although she questioned the validity of the ways Spreadsheets measures sexual success.

“There are so many assumptions that go into Spreadsheets’ idea of “good” sex… For those who want to capture these measurements (with the option of sharing them on Facebook or Twitter), great. But I’m concerned that, in a culture that too often implies that the more sex you’re having, the happier you are, we assume that everyone’s erotic pleasure boils down to the exact same data points.”

Especially since measures like TPM and decibel peak are only really applicable to thrusting-centric sex between very vocal partners, Bussel encourages her readers to create their own set of sexual metrics, to measure their specific brand of good sex.

What do you think of Spreadsheets? Does it sound helpful? Fun? Completely useless? Is there another sex app that you like, or that you wish existed? Let us know!
