I saw this device personally over 2 years ago. It is a rip off from an Israeli company call FleshLight. They sold over 2 million units so far.
I am surprised on Gizmag, publishing something as first and new, when it is not. Let\'s just say this is strike 1 I have found on Gizmag so far, so I\'ll let it pass... Please take better note in the future to search for similarities before publishing.
Ed note: the virtual element (i.e. haptic feedback) is a first to the best of our knowledge

That thing looks pretty good value for money! It\'s not so much pay-as-you-go, but more like pay-as-you-come. If you want to know what else exists, have a look at www.fleshlight.com (no batteries required)

Hey, it\'s the next big thing for people that play Guitar Hero!

This thing scares me. First of all, its not \'haptic feedback\'. The user doesn\'t give any input so there\'s nothing to feedback.
It fact, that\'s the scariest part. You sting your penis in it and from that point on, the software, streaming vids and hardware takeover. You have no control whatsoever over what this thing could do to you. What if the software had some kind of glitch and it clamped down on your privates, or if you\'re sensitive and it chafes your skin? What if you try to push stop and it won\'t. It\'s technology. Technology can fail. I just can\'t believe that this is safe and there\'s no way they can guarantee it is. Unless they\'ve had some kind of government testing or oversight. But sextoys are not regulated by anyone.
And they take returns. My biggest question there is how can someone guarantee that the Real Touch they think bought and think is new is actually someone else\'s return that\'s been recycled. You gotta ask yourself, why else would they take returns on something like this. Just the thought is makes me ill.
But hey, its gets you off... and likely there\'s poor shmucks out there who will buy this thing because they are thinking with the brain below their belts. Sure, women can be a hassle but..

Gentlemen, gentlemen, as a devout Gizmag reader and a recent RealTouch owner, let me set the record straight.
Dancarmen, where\'s the haptic technology in a Fleshlight, which isn\'t Israeli by the way (though the knockoff may be)? Where\'s the synchronization with VOD that makes it an immersive experience. I\'m not denegrating the Fleshlight - I have one - but to compare it to a RealTouch is like comparing your kids bike to a Harley Davidson. It will get you where you want to go but the ride won\'t be the same.
It\'s like getting a massage. You can do it yourself (to the parts you can reach) but it\'s always better when someone else is doing it. RealTouch gives you that disconnect. It\'s like sex with someone else but without the hassle. It\'s as much for your mind as your body. It\'s still you moving the Fleshlight and your brain knows that.
Three strikes to you dancarmen. You\'re out!
Evidently Youdontsay also don\'t read. If you looked at the RealTouch site or any of the other reviews out there, you\'d have answered all your questions. No doubt that technology can fail but your statements are ignorant. The device must be used with lube therefore no chafing. The orifice cannot clamp down but only provide light pressure. The belts are made of Versaflex which is the same hypoallergenic material used for the nipples on baby bottles. And you have plenty of control where you want it. You can adjust the amount of lube it provides and there\'s two ways to turn it off whenever you want, via the WMP or a button on the minitower that. Sometimes the button is easier when, well you know...
And where does your misplaced belief in government oversight come from? You must have never done military service or you\'d know where the terms FUBAR and SNAFU came from. Ask any soldier who served in the early days of Iraq about government approved armament.

While I may have seen some boobies on the internet this one time, this type of product is just going too far. Guys, the answer is social skills and weight loss. And learning that if you develop an interest in pleasing women, they chase you around the house! This type of thing is sad.

Hogey74 is oblivious to the fact that many men simply choose not to be involved with a woman, or have no choice due to circumstances such as a health or physical problem.
Many others have a hard time attracting women because they are not tall, dark, handsome, and wealthy like Hogey74 is.
Either way, it\'s got nothing to do with social skills or body weight.
What is sad is that there are people out there like Hogey74.

Dancarmon is not entirely uncorrect.. The flashlight in itself dosen\'t have a virtual element, but there is a add-on that makes it so. Check out http://www.citouch.com/newstore/index.html - They deliver a addon that screws on to the end of the flashlight and let you control a varity of sex-games on your computer with your private parts :)
But yeah, this is probably the first one that works both ways.

Hogey74 Ohh they will chase you around the house!! weee. There are many men with many problems out there, and it is not all psychological, it's also physical. Women are attracted "Physically" to a man, and don't give that personality shit talk here. Personally when I was a teenager I never had any trouble getting the girl I wanted, but as time moved on, I grew up to be a "boy looking" man ( I am a bit short too). And I tell you, it is so difficult to get a girl now for me, even though I am not bad looking. One thing I know is that if I went to a secondary highschool girls would be all over me......
So... by my experience, is 80% physical 20% personality, and if for me is hard to get girls, I pity the hell out of some other folks out there, who have even more physical issues than I.

LoL c\'mon its for entertainment and if it helps some people in getting some action, why not? If it offends some people then let them do it the old fashion way- hands on. No cost!!!

I invented something similar back in the 70\'s I called \"the U-fug-it.\" It was connected to a vacuum cleaner and was attached to the back of the seats in porno theaters.

There seem to be so many of these devices now and they go by different names. I have seen now the real touch, Vstroker and the Fleshlight and they all seem to do pretty much the same thing as mentioned in this article.
I am not sure which one is actually the original but I think dancarmon might be right because this has been around for some time now.

So the spokesperson really meant "pay as you come", not "pay as you go", right?

Let's say Hogey74 is the competition - and as we know the competition is necessary in any action to improve a product.
More guys like Hogey74 -more better things like this in the future
...so be gentle and understanding with guys like Hogey74
