You might be more used to seeing the newest TVs, tablets, laptops and all sorts of other tech at CES, but this year there are a few different ‘adult’ products you can find while wandering the show floors.

It’s not a huge amount, but it shouldn’t be all that surprising as sex tech and CES used to be inextricably entwined, until the Adult Entertainment Expo split out to become its own conference.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

As tracking every part of our lives becomes more commonplace and the Internet of Things takes hold, I’d predict that sex tech is about to take another step towards becoming mainstream.

Lovelife Krush by OhMiBod

OhMiBod is one of the few long-standing sex tech attendees of CES , having been at the last five shows.

This year, it launched the Lovelife Krush, a $129 “fitness” device that promises to be more fun than your average activity tracker.

The company says the kegel exerciser helps strengthen your pelvic floor muscles (as well as providing a more normal vibrator experience, should you want) and will ultimately lead to stronger orgasms over time.

The device comes with an accompanying app called TASL (The Art and Science of Love) that controls your workouts. There’s a gamification element to it too: you have to complete the exercises to unlock the more pleasurable vibration patterns.

While CES is on, there’s a 40 percent discount, making it $75 to pre-order, with delivery expected to start in mid-March.

Little Bird by B.Sensory

French company B.Sensory has used CES to show off ‘Little Bird’ – a vibrator that’s controlled by the stories you read in a series of erotic e-books.

Naturally, the device needs to pair with an app to do this, and shaking, caressing or blowing on your tablet triggers the vibration action too.

Of course, if you really can’t be bothered with the reading part of the equation, there’s a manual mode that lets you (or someone else) remotely control Little Bird from a device.

If you’re keen, you’ve missed the batch of pre-orders that will arrive in time for Valentine’s day, but you can still pre-order for €99 (~ $108) for the next lot, arriving in the Spring.

Fiera Arouser for Her by Nuelle

This is one that’s not brand new for the show, but the Fiera Arouser for Her being promoted as a foreplay device for women with low libido, which is an interesting market to aim at beyond the regular ol’ vibrator to make you orgasm.

Essentially, three massagers sit behind a silicon cup to simulate oral sex and rather than bring you to peak excitement, it’s designed to increase arousal ahead of sexual activity with a partner.

Pretty sure this isn't where the Fiera is designed to be used.

The price for this faux-foreplay isn’t cheap, however, at $250.

That’s a small price to pay to help with problems of decreased sex drive though.

Naughty America VR

This was one of the more predictable sex technologies on display at the show this year, but if you’ve got a VR headset (or Google Cardboard) and a hankering for flesh then VR porn is probably already on your radar.

Unlike some of the other companies approaching VR porn, Naughty America is the company behind the creation of a lot of adult content, which means that announcing a huge back catalog of titles that will now be VR compatible is a strong move to make a splash in a nascent market.

The company says its scenes use “180-degree stereoscopic head tracking” for a more immersive experience.

The service’s subscription packages cost between $1.95 and $71.40, depending on length of membership.

Not at the show


There was another sex-related product launched during CES, it just wasn’t launched at the show and isn’t a finished product.

The Bimek SLV is a male contraceptive device that, if funded and cleared by medical authorities, could allow men to essentially switch their sperm flow on or off at the press of a button.

In order to work, it still requires a short 30-minute surgery but the hope from the company is that it could potentially replace the vasectomy as contraception, yet still allow the potential for having children too.
