That’s right, technology has reached a new level in the bedroom and I am not just talking about looking at Facebook in the middle of the night.
The I.Con is being called the ‘Smart’ condom, but it is actually a reusable ring. A bit like a fitbit for your penis. The accompanying app means you can analyze your bedroom data. That’s right, it registers all the information regarding your sexual activity and stores it. It needs recharging and of course after use, you then need to download the information the ring has learnt about you and your member.
You can preorder the I.Con from a British maker online – it costs around $75 USD now but you can’t get your ahem… hands on them until some time later this year when it is released.
How is it being marketed? Well like this:
Have you ever wondered how many calories you’re burning during intercourse? How many thrusts? Speed of your thrusts? The duration of your sessions? Frequency? How many different positions you use in the period of a week, month or year? Ever wondered how you stack up to other people from around the world?
Welcome to the future of wearable technology in the bedroom.
Is this really the future? A place where the size of your penis will be analyzed and compared. Is sexual performance reductive to numbers or is it more about feelings? Perhaps this is another example of the generalization that men love playing with gadgets.
Is there going to be a new tech device one day that measures endorphin’s and hormones to follow?
It really makes me wonder, is access to this type of information something people have actually been demanding?
Technology already seems to intrude on so many parts of our lives and this looks like another encroachment on our intimacy.
Oh and just imagine the Wikileaks documents surrounding this little number.
