The creative minds that power the world’s most popular porn website, are looking to revolutionize the sex toy industry for men, with the release of a prosthetic posterior coupled with a VR headset the company is calling the TwerkingButt. You can check out the quirky and hilarious commercial Pornhub made to promote the device:
“Imagine a sensual device so advanced in technology, it allows you to experience the ultimate in cyber passion with motion and movement so real, you’ll never see it coming.”
TwerkingButt, according to the official press release, will “provide the ultimate experience in interactive cyber passion” by allowing you customize its twerking patterns, rhythm and vibrations.
Here’s some of the device’s cooler features:
- The device is controlled using a bundled remote or your iOS or Android device.
- It supposedly will have temperature controls so you can simulate body heat.
- The device ships with a custom VR headset, with 3D content being provided by the TwerkingButt app.
- The app itself is fairly impressive, giving the user the ability to control twerking patterns, customize rhythms, massage speeds, sensual vibration, and even a music playlist.
So how exactly does the TwerkingButt go the extra mile to truly replicate the feel of human flesh? As Mic Wright of The Next Web explains, the answer is what Pornhub and its partner in this endeavor, TopCo Sales, call Cyberskin. The material is designed to simulate the feeling of skin-to-skin contact, composed of “spring-like, high resiliency bonds” that make it malleable and able to return to its original shape. The companies claim it can be used to render “virtually lifelike replicas of your favorite adult stars.”
The TwerkingButt was officially released back in August, with the ‘classic’ version costing $699 USD, and the ‘deluxe’ model costing around $999 (the difference between the two is not immediately clear).
And as exciting as a robot ass with integrated virtual reality technology might sound, it’s not Pornhub’s first foray into the technological arena. Back in February of this year, the website announced it was developing a wearable wristband called the “Wankband,” which essentially stores kinetic energy from the stroking motion performed by masturbating. This is accomplished with a small inner valve in the band that sends a weight up and down with each stroke This stored energy can then be used to charge other devices, like your smartphone. It’s pretty ingenious when you think about it.
The device itself is still in development stages, so who knows if it will ever get an actual, physical release. Perhaps this is just some elaborate hoax concocted by Pornhub to generate buzz and get attention. You can visit Pornhub and sign up to become a possible, lucky, beta tester of the product when its ready.
The Wankband also got its own commercial, which Pornhub published on YouTube:
