Pipedream is a California-based company specializing in adult products. If their name sounds familiar, maybe that’s because they’ve won a few awards for innovation. They also gave away free vibes and ben-wa massagers to COVID first responders, and have revamped several well-known sex toys for men.

Last week was National Orgasm Day. If you missed it, you’re not alone. You’re probably also a woman, because according to a new study by Lelo, men are still having more orgasms during sex than women.
If you ask CASR what they do, they’ll tell you that they protect women’s rights and shine a light on the harm that gynoids can cause. In reality, the Campaign Against Sex Robots sounds like a bunch of Karens demanding the manager do something about the kind of sex other people are having.
