This Item Is Not (Yet) Available at Amazon

But it’s probably only a matter of time:

The Duet is a new, sleek, multispeed, waterproof vibrator – and it doubles as a USB drive with up to 16GB of storage.
Its designers, Ti Chang and Michael Topolovac, realized that the biggest complaint from women about vibrators had to do with the hassle of cords, batteries or obscure charging devices.
They discovered a USB connector was the solution.
“You look at it plugged into a laptop, charging, and it doesn’t look anything like a vibrator,” Chang said.

Could technology render men redundant to the . . . uh, pleasure process? Feminists perhaps hope so, and therefore this USB love-machine/thumb-drive represents “progress” in the wrong direction. Nevertheless, they sell everything at Amazon, and I’m sure they’ll be selling this soon.

Just yesterday, we sold a Kitchen Aid food processor for $179, which earned me a $7.16 commission through Amazon Associates, and another reader recently bought a $379 Nikon digital camera, thus kicking a $15.16 commission my way.

Whether it’s food processors or cameras or . . . uh, personal pleasure you’re looking for, Amazon sells it, and every time you shop through our Amazon links here, I get a 4% commission on the purchase price.

Of course, the easiest and quickest way to help pay the bills here is to hit the tip jar, but we do appreciate readers who shop Amazon for great bargains. And good lovin’ . . . NTTAWWT.

    I don’t think that this was exactly what whoever came up with the phrase “man-machine interface” had in mind…

    I’m glad someone can still be an Amazon affiliate. We here in NC were among the first states where Amazon affiliates got the boot from Amazon over the collecting of sales taxes.

    “I was in Tijuanna teaching a workshop. This woman
    came to me who had a pounding headache, she had a horrible migraine. I got
    the vibrator and I sat her in a room. She put the vibrator on her clit and
    relaxed and breathed the sexual energy up to her head. She had this orgasm
    and let it shoot out the top of her head and it cleared the headache out.
    So this woman came to take a workshop on sex and she learned how to cure
    her migraine! I gave her the vibrator as a present.” — Annie Sprinkle

    Why is it women in particular this sort of idiocy is aimed towards?  It looks like projection.

    If you search USB sex toy on you will find it’s already a crowded market. Curious whether The Other McCain will give a shout out to the reader who buys the Lady Calston Y-Play USB Vibrating Sex Toy and Doc Johnson
    Vibrator Pocket Rocket (19.99).

    Apparently it’s not just women who get off on these things: “The Doc Johnson Pocket Rocket is not made for insertion, but is made to
    stimulate the clitoris and vagina surface with powerful vibrating metal balls at
    the tip of the vibrator.”

    Or could the master plan be to render lesbian couples redundant too?

    Oh damn, I thought that said “simulate” not “stimulate”. One must be careful to read the fine print.

    No, there could be an angle to this stuff.  Suppose the wife gets warmed up with the product while you, for example, are watching football.  You could join her during halftime, share a precious moment, even have a couple minutes to “cuddle” and still get back for the second half kickoff.

    Technology brings good things to life.

    Hey that reminds me of a joke I heard today, Paddy bought his wife a vibrator for when he left home, when he came back she complained that it had shattered all her teeth LOL. LOL. LOL.

    There once was a hot babe named Kate
    Who went with a nerd on a date
    He couldn’t deliver
    And went all aquiver
    When his “enhancement” refused to inflate.

    You mean “woman-machine interface”, methinks. 

    Not “womyn-machine interface”, of course.  Womyn have already achieved that.

    For some odd reason, Anamika is unusually effusive throughout this thread.  I speculate that this subject is near and dear her……heart.

    “Effusive” isn’t the word I’d use, though its apparent root, “effuse,” does evoke both “refuse” and “effluent.”

    Some members enjoy us, are interested in what’s going on, and we are not averse to sharing. Then again, it may be difficult for McG to watch it for whatever reason; it may bring up stuff for him. Of course, I am not nearly as effusive and everything as McG is here. I request that he cool it, and he should.

    I’d be all to happy too, Adobe, believe me. You know me, I just can’t wait to tell the world how wonderful life is while GOOD ol’ Rocketman is in the world, but I don’t want to get too effusive…although let me tell you Rocketman and I are Beyond Totally Good, and everything about our love has to be definitely put in the Beyond All Amazon dot com Categories and Conceivable Notions category, but I think JeffS is right and that we should keep all the mushy gushy romantic stuff off line, especially if it looks like we’re just trying to buy the new USB stick and stick it in Stacy’s face, which we’re not believe me.

    Tsk tsk, Anamika, tsk tsk!

    You see, “effusive” was not meant in a good way.  Especially when taken in context with the overall thrust of the thread. 

    Tsk tsk, Anamika, tsk tsk!

    Um, maybe it’s because I’m not very… worldly, but that hardly looks like anything that I would want near my female parts.  And if those things were near my female parts, I wouldn’t want them attached to my computer.  Separating work and pleasure, and all.
