Friendly Gizmag readers, if Part One of our Realtouch review
left you feeling a little squeamish, it's probably best to click your way right back out of this page, because Part Two takes us into even murkier waters. In one of the better stretches I can remember in my working life, I've been using this USB-controlled pleasure machine to have amazingly realistic long-distance sex with girls on three different continents. For a first iteration of an entirely new category of sex toy, this thing is an absolute triumph. Roll up your sleeves and prepare for a messy read.
We've covered a lot of long-distance lovemaking tools before here on Gizmag – from the tragically innocent Haptihug Telecuddle interface
, to the slightly more sleeves-up Kissphone
, to the remotely-controlled VIVI vibrator
setup at the business end. But none have been quite as "meat and potatoes" as the remarkable LovePalz his-n-herz telehumping setup, which interface with a pair of iPhones to allow simultaneous face-to-face and pole-to-hole communication (to coin a phrase) over any distance.
Absence not only makes the heart grow fonder, it can also make for a pretty unfulfilling sex life. While technology has allowed lovers to bridge the tyranny of distance in terms of sight and sound, getting touchy feely is a different matter. Men and women have been looked after separately with devices like RealTouch
and the OhMiBod
, but we haven't really seen technology designed to allow couples to engage in remote sex. Hong Kong-based Remote Pleasure is looking to change that with a set of sex toys that can be controlled by your partner over the internet.
