Buttpluggin' With qDot Episode 1 is now live!

After more work (and gear buying) than I really want to admit, the first episode of my new series, Buttpluggin' With qDot, is now live!

This first episode is all about the Fleshlight Launch. The device just came out and I wanted to get something up about it, so I decide to kind of throw all my ideas in this first episode and see what sticks. It's a little long (43 minutes), but I tried to make it entertaining enough to keep interest. You'll see what comes with the device, how it works, how to take it apart, and what the insides look like.

Here's some of the next episode topics:

  • Buttpluggin' 101: Teledildonics
  • Buttpluggin' 101: VR Porn
  • Fleshlight Launch: Corrections and Addendum
  • Vorze A10 Cyclone Overview and Teardown

Plus some surprise topics!

If you've got any suggestions for topics or show content, feel free to poke me on twitter or send email to the tips address.

Buttplugin' with qDot - Coming Soon!

Yup, I'm starting my own youtube channel about buttplugs (and buttplug related topics)! Here's a teaser of the opening sequence for the first episode. Full episode should be up next week!

Fleshlight Launch Reverse Engineering

When a company with a name as big as Fleshlight attached their brand to a computerized sex toy, you damn well better believe I'll be there to get my hands in it.

I mean, I know I'm supposed to get other body parts in it, but let's be real here.

I've been working for the past few days on reverse engineering the new Fleshlight/Kiiroo crossover toy, the Launch. For those that just want the goodies right now, the documentation is coming together at https://metafetish.github.io/raunch-docs, with the repo at https://github.com/metafetish/raunch-docs.

It's a fairly simple toy, just made to fit a fleshlight case, and move it up and down. The protocol allows setting absolute position along the thrusting axis, and the speed to get there. That's about it. There are 7 capacative touch buttons on the device, though due to the smoothness of the face design, it's actually hard to know when/if you're hitting them.

As usual, I'll be cranking out libraries as fast as I can for the device. If you're interested in controlling it out omfg right now and have either mac or linux available, there's a WebBluetooth demo that will work with Chrome 56+. You can set the position to move to, and the speed at which to move, then hit "send" to actually send the command.

I've done a full teardown of the device, which I'll be making a video of for our ALL NEW YOUTUBE SERIES soon. We're also working on documenting the firmware (PIC24FJ64 processor), and contemplating writing our own because why not.

Sex Toy Reverse Engineering Update

It's been a while since I've talked about what we're doing on the reverse engineering side of things. Short answer is, a LOT! Otherwise I wouldn't be asking for money.

Almost all of the reverse engineering happening now is in preparation for getting v0.1 of Buttplug out the door. What that release will actually look like is anyone's guess, but the more toys we have documented and reversed, the better. I'll usually be covering reverse engineering and software development work over on the Buttplug.io blog and leaving this blog for featuring news, business, and other people's projects (with buttplug update posts every so often), but I'm taking this opportunity to update both places since I haven't written anything about my own work in a while.

First off, all of our documentation and code repos are still at

http://github.com/metafetish

I'm also trying to keep hardware information up-to-date and available on the buttplug.io website. Keep an eye on the hardware menu, and I'll probably add a "Recently Updated" section to the front of the site soon.

Anyways, onto the libraries!

Metafetish now has a Patreon campaign!

Metafetish now has a patreon campaign!

Or, well, more specifically, I (qDot) do. I'd like to get more sex toys to reverse engineer, but that's becoming a pretty spendy endeavor these days. Most toys start at $150, and specialty stuff like the ET-312 can be upwards of $600. I've set up a patreon campaign so that I can accept donations and "engage directly with motivated participants", or so the marketing department tells me to say.

There are multiple reward tiers, including previews of Metafetish posts, Q&A with me, old-timey handwritten letters, and even a Metafetish VIP level that can get you all sorts of special perks.

I'm going to try to make efforts to post more here about the reverse engineering and documentation I've been doing recently, but if you can't wait, all of the code, documentation, and everything else are always on github at

https://www.github.com/metafetish

Go on then. Gimme money. I'm waiting. We're already up to 7 patreons and $16 a month, which is a great start!
