Ride 'em slowly, cowboy

The iJoy Ride™ is a "unique and exciting way to work out." It is not to be confused with the Sybian sex toy. (Please press "Play" for the embedded video and enjoy the smiles.)

That thing bucks like Ted Haggard on the meth.
Get serious!

My two year old has the same expression/reaction when I bounce her on my knee -- it makes her giggle. I think this is an appropriate reaction for a two year old, but for a 35 year old? Not so much...

I love that there is a Wikipedia article for butt plugs (linked from the Sybian article)

So which was first, the iGallop or the iJoy Ride?

That sure looks like a Sybian.

Please press "Play" for the embedded video and do the first actual at-keyboard spit-take I've done in years.

Thankfully it was just water.

Funny, I just can't imagine Lady Godiva practicing on it.

I pressed "Play" but got a Leo DiCaprio video.
Please advise.

I believe you could only sell this in Texas if you called it a personal massager.

That's one expensive sex toy.

They have these in front of grocery and drug stores. I use them all the time and they look like rockets and horses. Far more fun.

Also, the workout "stages" resemble a relationship: Warm up (Default), Taking it Easy, Getting Serious, and Pump it Up. Then, inevitably, "Auto function".

I seen something similar to one of these things at the mall (think it was an iGallop) and convinced a friend to try it out after me. The thing was mounted in front of TV screens showing the igallop interposed with scenes of women riding horses.

It felt like a wobbly chair and not too much of a work out. I probably could get the same experience trying to balance on one of those large inflatable balls. Anything that requires you to readjust your balance (dancing, wooo!)

My opinion: train to do what you want with your body. You'll develop muscle and tone according to the activity you do, and this one will make it look like you've been sitting on an iJoy Ride all day. My opinion of the machine as a exercise aide is very low.

On the other hand, watching my friend ride it was definitely a pleasurable experience... *coughs* But that's mainly due to the fact that she's silly and her expression was that of "what is this ridiculousness?"




iJoy Ride? Awful name, falls from the mouth like the pieces of consumer electronic circuit boards out of the shattered remains of their ill designed external housing.
