    Default Women's Sexual Pleasure -- Apparently Still a Taboo

    Love this magazine/website. Lots of techie stuff, up-to-the-minute articles about privacy in the Internet world, new gadgets, science, and even politics. I thought I'd throw this interesting and controversial topic out there. What do you think, gentlemen and -women?

    ~~~
    At the tech world’s glitziest gala, the massive Consumer Electronics Showcase held in Las Vegas this week, you could find rows of devices only for women: breast pumps, fertility trackers, breast massagers, skin care gizmos. This embrace of women’s health as a category for tech innovation is a huge shift from just a few years ago, when it was much easier to find a scantily clad “booth babe” hired to hawk some random fitness tracker than it was to find anything geared toward women as consumers—unless it was a pink version of a mainstream gadget.

    But while women’s skin care, fertility, and general health have come to represent entire categories for gadget makers, women’s pleasure is apparently still too taboo.

    A robotic vibrator, developed in consultation with Oregon State University’s robotics department, was initially accepted into the show and given an innovation award, only to later be excluded because it didn’t fit into an existing product category, according to the Consumer Technology Association, which runs CES. (Before its award was revoked, it was honored in the category of robotics.) The device was also called "immoral" and "profane," according to statements CTA made to the press.

    [Rest of article describes the device and reactions to it.]

    I'm guessing they would say the same things about robotics designed for male sexual pleasure, as well.

    Maybe. From the article:

    "It would also, frankly, help CES overcome its history of sexism. The show has consistently come under fire for including women as "booth babes" but not as innovators, entrepreneurs, or keynote speakers. And this year’s refusal to let the Ose on the show floor smacks of hypocrisy, given that sex robots and VR porn have both been presented at past shows. The difference? Sex robots are for men to stick their penises into—you know, for fun. According to the world’s consumer tech show, women’s pleasure still just doesn’t matter."

    I wonder if female orgasms outside of male-female intercourse frighten some men who fear that we won't need you guys if we can do it ourselves. If so, take heart. We need you, and for a lot more than that.

    1. Who will take the scary spider and put her outside?
    2. Who will haul the heavy loads of dirt for our gardens?
    3. Who will pretend not to be sickened when we make a new dish you don't like?
    4. Who will make sure our cars are always in top-notch running condition?
    5. Who will lay on the gross and cold basement floor to fix the laundry room wash basin drain?
    6. Who will mow the grass when it's a blazing 1M degrees outside?
    7. Who will laugh at even our lamest jokes?
    8. Who will put up with the jerks in our side of the family?
    9. Who will put their strong arms around us at night so that we can sleep soundly, knowing that we are safe and well-loved?

    Men can get by without women, not the other way around.

    I'm sure that every guy locked up in prison feels the exact same way.

    We can all "get by" without the opposite sex, but who wants to? You guys enjoy our presence as much as we love yours. It's a beautiful thing.

    I love women. Probably have more that I consider close friends than men. But you listed 9 reasons why women can't live without us. There are hundreds more.

    Still trying to figure out how they would demonstrate that robotic boy toy?
    Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

    It's just emojis of me shying away from this. I've come across way to much weirdness when I was younger, since I was a night owl.
