It is interesting how far the sex toy has come over the centuries. It is rumored that Cleopatra created a vibrator using a gourd filled with buzzing bees. The Chinese would then get in on the game centuries later by making dildos out of bronze, wood, and stone. People always seemed to be on the search for the perfect sex toy. This search went deeper when women were diagnosed with “hysteria” during the industrial revolution. Before doctors created the electric vibrator, they would manually stimulate women to fix their condition. This resulted in doctors developing tendonitis and muscle strain. The very loud electric vibrator solved this.
In a way, the sex toy history is rather humorous, but a device can only be built by using the technology available at that time. The good news for us is that technology has advanced. Today, there are many types of devices that men and women use in different ways to stimulate themselves, which is why sex toy collections hiding in sock drawers are out of this world. For the first timer or the sex toy enthusiast, there is great technology out there to look into.
Virtual Reality in the Sex Toy Industry
It’s fair to say the closest thing to virtual reality at one time was the Fleshlight and similar masturbators for men. The industry has advanced from there by creating masturbators connected to virtual reality headsets that give the illusion of intercourse. Send a signal to the eyes via the headset and put a person in a suit outfitted with sensors, and the experience becomes very realistic. Hand the suit wearer a set of artificial breasts and make it even more intense.
The eJaculator is another virtual reality device that is similar to a Fleshlight, but it has its differences. This device can be programmed to simulate the thrust of a porn star. Add the VR headpiece for visual assistance, and the experience becomes more realistic. There’s also a wireless remote control and a smartphone app, so everything is there to make the eJaculator seem as close to the real thing as possible. Other devices like the eJaculator include the BKK Virtual Reality Cybersex Masturbation and the Fleshlight vStroker. The vStroker is the Fleshlight on steroids; it has a virtual reality headset with it that makes things more real.
Sex Robots Taking the Industry by Storm
Masturbators are popular, but those with a bit more cash to spend may opt for the sex robots that are starting to hit the market. The demand as high, which was evidencedwhen VirtuaDolls launched a Kickstarter campaign that was funded quickly. The demand was so high that the project hadto be pulled. A virtual reality headpiece is needed, but the robot stimulates the wearer of the headpiece and does so in a responsive manner. It is not known when the project will be restarted.
