What is a Teledildonic Device?

Man and women with 2000's era remote sex toys

Welcome to the World of Teledildonics

Even though the world is socially distancing, it is still possible to have a banging good time sexually, with a little technology of course. Welcome to the world of teledildonics, sex toys that partners can use and control remotely online or through Blue tooth with a smart phone app. These devices feature haptic (touch) technology. It is difficult to say which came first, the creativity of human sexuality or the adaptation of technology to the array of sexuality. Either way, sexuality and technology make for exciting bed fellows.

What Can You Do with Teledildonic Products?

Some of these devices have features where you can play music and the toy will vibrate to the beat! Other devices can be synchronized with other toys for mutual play. Another feature allows you to set vibration patterns to the voice of an erotic audio book or to a phone sex conversation. You can also send vibration patterns from one phone to another and exchange photos and texts through the toy app.

They have adapted almost every type of sex toy with teledildonics. One model is like the We-Vibe Chorus, a hands-free toy that provides stimulation to the G Spot and the clitoris at the same time and stays out of the way for penetration. Penis owners can use the toy on the base of the shaft. Just imagine the possibilities with a toy like this; your partner wears the toy and you control the vibration pattern and the speed. Surprise your partner by turning it on while you are out to dinner!

One device is bendable and adjustable, allowing the toy to take any shape and stimulate any type of body.

Devices for penis owners include flesh lights with stacked rings that vibrate or stroke in coordination with an erotic video or other programming. Some male toys can simulate the sensation of a blow job.

I avoid recommending specific toys simply because sex toys are so personal. But there is a toy on the market for women that is exemplary in that it allows a woman to explore her orgasmic potential. The Lioness is a vibrating toy, similar in shape to the rabbit with a shaft and a clitoral stimulator, which comes with an app that allows the user to see the intensity of her pelvic floor movements in actual time much like a biofeedback device. The website says that pelvic floor movements are, “one of the best indicators of arousal and orgasms.” This toy is great for women with pelvic floor issues. The creators of the Lioness market the toy primarily for self-experimentation but with some creativity, use of the toy could involve a partner. The app allows you to track each of your solo sessions and monitor the intensity of your orgasms. The website also has some great sex education resources. Lioness.io

While teledildonics can bridge the gap that physical distance creates between partners, I doubt that technology can replace the power of human touch. If only there was a cuddle setting!
