Pornhub now offers videos that synch up with wireless sex toys

1 min read


Pornography has always been at the forefront of technology. The videotape format wars were famously won in part thanks to porn – though that’s a misconception. Videos of people rubbing themselves up against each other were available on Sony’s ill-fated Betamax. The bigger decider there, I’d imagine, is that when it was released Betamax only allowed for 1 hour of video to be stored, so you’d need a second cassette to watch a movie. Many claim that porn was the decider between HD-DVD and Blu-Ray too, but that’s nonsense.

Porn was too busy being technologically superior, by streaming over the internet. While porn’s influence on video technologies is debatable, there’s no questioning how influential it was in shaping the internet. Anyway, I’m rambling. The point here is that porn has always utilised technology in weird, wonderful, and sometimes frightening ways.

Now Pornhub, a site I’ve never heard of before and have most certainly never used, is offering a range of interactive videos that synchronise with futuristic sex toys. According to the sex-streaming company, the Fleshlight Launch and Kiiroo Onyx will be supported, and the videos will feature “an eclectic mix of content, offering an assortment of themes and appealing to various target audiences.”


Said target audiences right now only include people with penises though. Pornhub says that that eventually, these devices will work simultaneously with VR – removing the need for human interaction completely. Only specific videos with the extra data will work.

“We have a data layer overlaid on the video that sends synchronized pulses that mimic tactile sensations from [the body] that are transmitted to a user’s synced wireless interactive sex toy,” says Corey Price, VP of Pornhub. “Hand motions would also be replicated.”

That all sounds nice enough, until you see what these devices look like. The Fleshlight Launch is an aptly named $199 device that looks like it’s set to yank yer bits off and fly in to outer space.

      Well, I can point out that marriage is about a lot of things other than sex.

      Marriage is like going to the pub with your mates. You go to the pub not only to TELL lies to your mates but also to HEAR lies from your mates. About sex and sports, mostly.

      Marriage is like that heady, intoxicating feeling of the 2nd whiskey of the night.

      Or, and this is possible, I am making things up and throwing metaphors around because, well, I feel like it. Who knows? Is any of this stuff remotely relative to anything else? IS Marriage like a trip to the pub? You go into it with high expectations and leave at 05:00 AM, stumbling around in the dark trying to figure out the correct path, way home, not sure about direction or path, but just DAMN glad you are not alone on the dark path.

    Any idea if you can charge your Fleshlight Launch with a Wankband?

    If you can afford all of the expenses to indulge in this then you can probably get plenty IRL.

    Just a thought: Should this article be under the Technology banner, where it is, or under the Entertainment section?
