Vibration Motor Tester App for iPhone

Ever had a small vibration motor you wanted to test spin-up on, but couldn't figure out what equipment to use? Well now you can just use your iPhone!

The Vibration App from Diffraction Limited Design LLC allows you to put a motor on your phone, then uses the accelerometer to sense different information about it as it spins up. Their blog post on the app provides more information on usage and features.

Go forth and put vibrators on your phone!

Sex Doll Making Video

A video showing the process of making a sex doll. What can I say, I'm a big fan of How It's Made. Thanks @annaleen!

Kinky Code - Tease AI

Welcome to Kinky Code, our new series on open source sex software! We'll be highlighting different sex/kink/porn/etc open source projects we find around the net.

First up is Tease-AI.

Tease AI UI

Tease AI is a Visual Basic application that allows you to create personalized computer domination situations. For those familiar with webteasing, think of it like things you'd find on Milovana except more user customizable. For those not familiar with webteasing, I should really write an article about that, shouldn't I?

There's extensive documentation available for TeaseAI, as well as a support forum on Milovana. It looks like the project has also been forked by Milovana users, which means this is truly an open source community project.

Side note: Trying to find an image for this post, I did a google image search for "Tease AI". I got back this:

Ai Wei Wei is Annoyed

If I don't make any more posts after this, it is because I have died giggling.

bOING bOING Sex Issue from 1993

Long before it was... whatever it is today, bOING bOING was a zine. Run by Mark Frauenfelder and Carla Sinclair, it was established alongside other notable publications of the late 80s-early 90s like Mondo 2000.

In early 1993, bOING bOING published a sex focused issue entitled "Sex Candy for Happy Mutants". It's pretty god damn 90s, alright. Thanks to the continuing archival work of Famicoman, this issue is now available via the Internet Archive!

It includes a Brenda Laurel interview about sexual interface research (unfortunately I was not referenced, due to being 12 years old at the time), sci-fi stories about the yet to be world of teledildonics, and an interview with Lords Of Acid (because of course).

Thanks again to Famicoman for the awesome archival work!

Sex Tech Crowdfunding Roundup 2016-06-28

Let's see what's been up on crowdfunding sites in the past couple of months... Oh god. Oh my god.

Sometimes, the gods/goddesses/g*(various other genders) of the internet looks down upon you and smile, and apparently that's what they're doing today, 'cause hoooo boy do we got some campaigns. I just. Wow.

Starting with least interesting/already finished and progressing in WTFness.

The Lovense Hush Plug

Hush

528% (US$76859 raised / US$20000 needed) - Campaign Over

Ok, posting this not because it's new, but because it just actually shipped and backers have started receiving their hardware. They're still $59 if you buy from Indiegogo, so get on that! Remember, if you're interested in controlling it with your own code, check out the liblovense library.

Hex Condom by Lelo

LeloHex

1982% (US$237851 raised / US$12000 needed) - Campaign Over

Charlie Sheen? Fucking really? Lux Alptraum even pulled her support for the condom over their weird PR choices and lackluster initial reviews.

Remoji Sex Toys

Remoji

1229% (US$129804 raised / US$10000 needed) - Campaign Over

Eh. Toys seem kinda uninspired, and the PR is just fucking WEIRD. "Make public sex legal!". It's kind of a combination of skeezy and porn parody that just doesn't seem like it works. Lux Alptraum included them in her article on why phone apps are a horrible idea, which I highly recommend checking out. That said, $129000 (which isn't actually all that much) says at least some people think it'll turn out ok, so we'll see what happens when they ship.

The Rabbitow

Rabbitow

0% (US$0 raised / US$10000 needed) - 30 days (?) left

Your standard onahole, with heating element. Nothing Tenga hasn't done before. However, this image is worthy of a toy that would show up on Kanojo Toys:

Rabbitow

Yeah. Um. Why is the onahole her whole digestive tract. WHY. EW.

Complete Oral Pleasure Sex Toy

Oral Pleasure Toy

0% (US$0 raised / US$50000 needed)

There's no pictures of what they're producing, just description of a toy that acts like a tongue. There's a lot of those. I'm posting this because of their opening image mostly, which is just... WTF.

Sir Frots-A-Lot Dual Onahole

0% (US$58 raised / US$64000 needed)

So Sir-Frots-A-Lot is ostensibly a good idea. It's a dual onahole for pokey-thing/pokey-thing interaction. Made for two guys, but hey, you could totally stick two Ambrosia toys in there and go to town, so who knows. Has some interesting points about safe sex uses. But the marketing. Christ, the marketing. I understand swordplay and all that, but really?

SirFrotsALot

That said, the fact that they're using diverse (in so many senses of the word) fantasy art on their site is a surprisingly bold move.

I honestly feel like this could be a really interesting product if it had better marketing behind it. Ah well.

The Tight-O-Meter

TightOMeter

0% (US$20 raised / US$150000 needed)

Is it like a thing now to get drunk and make crowdfunding campaigns? I mean, I'm totally down with it if it is, it makes writing this post so much easier. But my god, this one's a doozy. It's a "toy" that measures how tight you are and gives you a score. They aren't stopped there though!

"The Tight-O-Meter branding (T-O-M) will rely on various accesories to hit the market and to be a worldwide success. T-shirts (the 1k club;[ your ex..data, your next..data]; my gf is 850, T-O-M entertainment for adults, T-O-M Æ For those who knows <--- mistake voluntary), headbands, wristbands (600 blue;700 green;800 orange;900 silver;1000 gold), lubricants, cleaning wipes, etc."

YES THEY HAVE THEIR BRANDING PLANNED OUT.

"One day every pornstars, will have their own score. This way you
could have a realistic idea of the tightness of your favorite
pornstar."

In the future, everyone will be requires to have their tightness score on their government issued ID. Societal castes will be set based on tightness.

Never stop dreaming, Tight-O-Meter Dude. And yes, I'm guessing you're a dude but I'm pretty sure I'm right.
