The price is very apropos.

So this vibrator, it...?

Oh, nevermind.

I still say the viberider is cooler, maybe when the bluetooth version comes out.

This idea has been done a couple times now, but I have to say, it's a nice design. I may have to get one, um...for aesthetic reasons.

I bet you have to buy a case for it or it gets all scratched up.

I like the idea of hooking it up to an electric guitar...or, better yet, a keytar!

Or a synthesizer. Can't you just picture Bernie Worrell "playing" his lady? I can.

Garth Hudson, less so.

I think my girlfriend would leave me if she discovered I had an IPod with Damien Rice or Bread on it at all, never mind the vibrator. That's one of the reasons I love her so much.

Also:

"OhMiBod combines music and pleasure to create the ultimate acsexsory™ to your iPod."

This is silly. "Sexcessory" clearly works better than "acsexsory," which is awkward and hard to say.

How about plugging it into Throbbing Gristle?

Maybe if you put it in your mouth, but that would make your fillings hurt.

If you're a guy who uses one of these, perhaps the operative word here isn't "girlfriend".

OMB users can instantly (and anonymously) become part of a fun, hip community called CLUB VIBE (ohmibod.com/clubvibe), where other OMB aficionados write about their experience, trade tips, share their favorite playlists, and more.

Trade tips? This doesn't exactly seem like something that would have "a thousand different uses".

"CLUB VIBE"? how many people are yearning for the chance to join an online community to talk about one specific brand of vibrator? and what are the flame wars like over there?
posted by acid freaking on the kitty at 4:16 PM on November 30, 2006


it automatically vibrates to the rhythm and intensity of the music.

WARNING: COULD BE DANGEROUS FOR SLAYER FANS.

I'd be too embarrassed to buy my girlfriend an ipod to go with the vibrator.

Yes. That was brilliant.

Mid-period Ministry should be just about right for this. "TV2" or "Hero" springs to mind, for instance.

Am I weird in that I've never had a girlfriend who's cared much about or been stimulated much by the vibrating action of sex toys, but have all preferred normal, non-vibrating toys combined with vigorous movement?

Wasn't this on gizmodo about a year ago? Or is just that all new consumer products shiny and white these days?
posted by mattoxic at 6:26 PM on November 30, 2006


I may just be a cheap bastard, but isn't $69.00 kind of pricey for a vibrator that needs an external battery pack? That design problem was solved in like, the fifties.

No amount is too much for a Mac fanatic to be able to have sex with their Apple products.

The studied results of classical conditioning suggest that this is just the type of thing that leads to unwanted orgasms in inconvenient situations. You'll want to only enjoy the OhMiBod while listening to obscure music that will never be randomly played on the radio while driving, on the loudpeaker while shopping at Gymboree, or whenever you're eating dinner with your parents.

Just a reminder.

krippledkonscious: I think you're missing the point. Those are exactly when people want the happy time to happen without having to do it manually (pun intended).

It's still a lot more fun than the other item at the Metafilter $69 store.

I love having sex to Slayer

Finally, a use for that Merzbow CD I never listen to

Hell, yeah, bring it on.

music is all about sex, this is a great idea, but my boyfriend does a pretty good job all by himself. sexcessories can feel a little... awkward or "oh, let me fiddle with this other thing..."

fuck you, fiddle with me, please.

Pussy Blue?

I wonder it works if you plug it into the tv during a porn movie, would it vibrate in time with the star's moans?

It should come with some sampler music.

And coming from Microsoft next spring: The Poon Zune.

I've wondered about hooking one of these up to a microphone. Having some kind of control over the vibrations you're getting seems like it would be interesting. Or at least more interesting than just lying there listening to the radio through your cooter.

[full disclosure: author does not, in fact, have a cooter]

Good quality MP3 recordings of brown noise are available for your scatalogical pleasure.

So... I guess Detachable Penis would be a good song to have on a playlist, no?

Toys In Babeland has a similar unit.
Weird vibrator + color organ kit + ipod = MakeMagazine ipod vibrator mod feature. With a multichannel organ you could control several vibrators or increase the complexity of modulation of a single unit. With a mic you could control the unit like a clapper.

What I want to know, is has anyone designed a USB-powered/controlled vibator for use during net-sex?

There must be a market for interactive sextoys for that purpose. Some sort of customised client with vibrator controls built in. It's got to be with money!

I was going to make a joke about Mac-Lovers finally being able to have sex with their iPods, but, instead I make this one:

I already have one of these; it's called a subwoofer.

Judging by how things are going right now, the first song on my playlist would be John Cage's 4'33.

I wonder if you could somehow hook it up to Rez? (a bit NSFW)
posted by A Thousand Baited Hooks at 2:54 PM on December 1, 2006


Wow, hooks, I've actually never read a female testimonial of the trancevibrator before. If I could get a girl to.. err.. participate... while I played, I think I'd probably never stop.
