Further proof that China is indeed the up and coming (sorry, I couldn't resist the childish pun) new global economic force. Why do I have a sneaking suspicion that this may turn up at one of my local adult toy stores?

They wheel over the giant-silicone-tongued-licking-machine and let it go to town.

I've made love to Lady Cup. It was sort of awkward and embarrasing and pretty much the opposite of erotic - I really don't imagine humping this thing would be any less so.

(And yes, everything is present and correct with the boys)

At least they've solved the "uncanny valley" problem.

nathancaswell: "er silicon"

Silicon goes in transistors and CPUs, silicone goes in boobs, plumbing products, and sex toys. The easy way to remember is that a transistor isn't cone shaped.

"The new technology gets its name from the addition of a small fin that sits on top of the transistor that creates an additional electronic gate on the transistor."
it doesn't sound as likely to be conical as a boob is

Does it interface with a Wii or PlayStation? The market for "Cock Hero" and "Fuck Fuck Revolution" is there for the taking.

The first link is dead and the second sucks (sorry, I couldn't resist the childish pun).
posted by cjorgensen at 4:44 PM on May 22, 2011


The link was dead on the first try, but worked the second time.

My reaction is two-fold. One, it makes me think of gloryholes, and not in a good way. Two, it makes me think of vagina dentata, also not in a good way.

But that said, I suspect that the "prosumer", home-use market for this might well be larger than the hospital/spermbank market. And if you figured out how to combine this with a RealDoll, I think you could retire on a tropical island and let the money roll in.

Needs little pinball flipper thingys on the side so you can feel like you're part of the game. And a place to put your initials for best score.

For patients who […] feel uneasy with the traditional erotic magazine and plastic cup method

If I'm uneasy with a magazine and cup, I'm not going to be any less uneasy about a giant technurbation pillar console thing. Am I misunderstanding the source of these peoples' unease?

with a magazine and cup, you need a boner before they can get your splooge

with this thing it can milk it out even if you never get turned on

And then, inevitably, one of these machines will fail and some poor guy will get stuck, and then the firefighters will be called to help get him out, and he'll be humiliated and sue for emotional distress.

Or something like that.

I once used one of those automatic blood pressure measuring machines in a drug store. It was out of calibration or something, because it kept pumping, and pumping, and pumping up the pressure until I was in extreme pain, then held if for a long time before finally, very slowly, letting out the air. I ended up with severak bruises on my arm.

I guess my point is that there is no way on Heaven or Earth that I would use one of these machines.

Lots of guys would fuck a rock-pile if they thought there was a snake in it, if you could put a big set of silicone cans on this thing -- and maybe an oven, for pizza afterwards -- hey, you do that you'll sell a billion of these things ...

It makes me giggle to think that the machine, being designed for medical purposes and not as a sexual toy, is about getting the job done and not the comfort of the user. So, they made no attempt to dampen the machinery sound....a loud, metal-on-metal grating sound like a pencil sharpener crossed with a can opener.

Thing looks much better engineered to reduce sperm count than to aid in measuring it. I mean, ow.

If they dress it up as an animal, and move the control parts further away from the action, this could be an improvement in veterinary science for semen collection. Right now, they use either an artificial vagina with no moving parts, or electricity, or manual manipulation. This seems easier and safer.

"This seems like a really expensive way to jerk off."

Clearly, this is just one more case where the Chinese are trying to play catch-up with the Japanese.
