There’s An App For Masturbating In Public Now

Ever wanna secretly (and discreetly) get yourself off in public? Cool, cuz there’s an app for that now.

Tech-loving sluts everywhere can rejoice about this little technological advancement: OhMiBod, purveyors of luxury music-powered remote-control vibrators, have announced their latest pleasure model, blueMotion. Essentially, it’s a vibrator that you slip into the crotch of your underwear (hands free!) and control via Bluetooth with a free app for your smart phone – or your partner’s phone. Sexting just got real. Oh, and it has a recording device too, so you can coordinate the vibes to your favorite get-it-on on-the-go playlist, or a voice message from your partner. Talk dirty to me, indeed.

While the idea of the blueMotion vibrator is a geek slut dream come true, it does bring up a few interesting questions. For starters, has our culture become so tech-obsessed that we need a phone app to literally turn us on? OhMiBod’s founder stated in a press release that “the explosion of the digital age has resulted in a shift in intimacy, as many pay more attention to devices than their partners.” The novelty of using this gadget with a partner is clear; I’m sure anyone would totally get off on being able to remote-control their lover’s journey to climax. It also adds a little voyeuristic control aspect, which kind of makes me think the idea for this was born from some futuristic cyberpunk porno mastermind. You currently have to be within range of the device to be able to control it remotely via Bluetooth, but, apparently, makers are hoping to create a long-distance version within the year.

I’m torn as to whether I think this is great (long-distance couples can be intimate with the simple touch of a button and vibrating panties!), or a little too impersonal (hey, you wanna text my knickers some sweet sensations?). Although, of course, the latter does open up a lot of possibilities in terms of sexual liberation. There’s no need for commitment here, it’s just like playing with a remote control car, except whoever’s wearing this actually wants to get driven over the edge. Personally, I prefer the idea of using it solo – it’s undeniably empowering to be able to discreetly get yourself off whenever and wherever you want. The possibilities are endless: your subway ride just got a little more pleasant – and so did that boring dinner party! The question, then, is would you? Has our culture reached a sex-positive enough point where we are open to the idea of public (if discreet) masturbation? Or is this nothing more than the latest luxury bachelorette party gag? Time will tell, but in the meantime, my interest in taking this thing out for a test drive has been piqued. And lest any of you wonder if it’s just the ladies that get to enjoy this new wearable sex tech fad, fear not – this thing exists too. We officially live in the future.

  1. I think it could be a cute gesture for couples, my bf travels a lot and we facetime a lot, it would be fun if he could control it from his hotel room, kinda feel like he is there.
