Fans of pornography, virtual reality, and even creator apps have long felt the cruel sting of incompatibility with major market tech. From VR’s confounding unwillingness to make content mac-compatible to apps that require desktop processing power to use—iOS fans have often been left in an app-less void. Slowly though, change is coming. XBIZ reports that LoyalFans, a proud competitor to Only...
Plenty of things can keep humans from having orgasms: stress, medications, lack of awareness of our own bodies. But there are steps we can take if we want to invest some effort (and money) into better sexual health. Lora DiCarlo advocates for exactly that—she’s a sex toy designer, entrepreneur, and first-hand witness to how SexTech for women is still not taken as seriously as it should be.
Gizmodo explains that now that CES has finally accepted SexTech as a legit category, people can’t stop talking about it. To hear DiCarlo tell it, her products are about breaking down the barriers that keep those with a clitoris from having orgasms. Fans would agree. This year’s CES featured a wide swath of SexTech startups and small businesses owned and run by women.
Her latest project, Baci, is neither a dildo nor a vibrator. Made of body-safe silicone, the Baci is rechargeable, waterproof, and said to mimic human touch. Better still, it’s designed to combat the chilling statistic that 21% of women, even when aroused, are unable to achieve orgasm. WHAT?!?
The second facet of DiCarlo’s mission is the launch of WellSx—a 50-minute one-on-one virtual coaching session with a certified sexual health coach. These sessions can address a multitude of issues including low libido, shame or guilt about sex, lack of confidence, and advice on how to select a sex toy. The website offers a lot of the same information in a more general way—without requiring a fee.
Investing in one’s sexual health isn’t exactly cheap. A Baci toy has an MSRP of $160. Each Sexual wellness session is priced at $120 with slight discounts for buying four sessions at once. If you have the means, investing in your sexual wellness and supporting female entrepreneurship is a great way to be an advocate for yourself and others.
