Boing Boing: A Directory of Wonderful Things
Violet Blue’s Teledildonics show-’n’-tell photoblogged
Boing Boing reader VonGuard sez:
Last night at Dorkbot SF, Violet Blue gave a wonderful presentation on the current state of teledildonics: the science of manipulating sex toys through the Internet. Immediately following the conclusion of her speech, Violet proceeded to manipulate a Thrillhammer in New York’s Museum of Sex. But the attempt was marred by technical difficulties ranging from slow camera updates to not having the cursed thing plugged in. This was perhaps the first time in history that a room-full of people had managed to frustrate a woman 3000 miles away. In the end, however, Net Michelle did manage to get her rocks off as Violet piloted her to orgasm. The thrust of the experiment basically proved that teledildonics has made some major progress, but is also a long way from being a viable form of sexual gratification. I’ve posted my pictures form the event on my site and included a somewhat more detailed account in my blog. Enjoy!
I reckon Miss Violet will blog about the event herself whenever she recovers from all the excitement.
