Chambersburg, Pennsylvania-based medical device technology developer Reflexonic has received FDA approval for its Viberect device aimed at men with mild to moderate erectile dysfunction (ED) symptoms, including those undergoing post-prostatectomy erectile rehabilitation and those with spinal cord injuries causing ejaculatory dysfunction. Instead of relying on a little blue pill to get things ready for the bedroom, the device, which looks a bit like a hair crimper, delivers targeted nerve stimulation to both dorsal and ventral surfaces of the penis using medical Softpads.
The rise of 3D printing
means, among other things, that you'll never again have to settle for a sex toy that doesn't hit all the right spots.

Services such as Skype have certainly made things a little easier for geographically-separated romantic partners, but when the tele-chat is over and it's time to say good night, sometimes a little air kiss blown towards a webcam just isn't enough. While there are products
that cater for the long-distance physical needs of couples, those might be a bit much for everyday situations. There's also the KissPhone
, which attempts to simulate the sensation of one partner's lips against the other's. Sitting between those two extremes, however, is the "Kiss Transmission Device" – a prototype gizmo designed to allow its users to virtually lock tongues.

Now Philips has created a range of sex toys specifically designed for couples
, taking the genre mainstream for the first time. Bravo Philips!
