Have you ever wished your sex life had just a bit more numbers and charts in it?
Apparently, someone has, because now “smart condoms” are a thing. It’s like the Fitbit of condoms.
British company British Condoms markets its i.Con as “the world’s first smart condom.” But in the fine print, it’s actually the world’s first “smart condom ring.” It’s meant to sit over a condom at the base and be used “over and over again.” And of course there’s a companion iOS app. What, do they think Android people don’t get down?
- Calories burned during sex
- Speed of thrusts
- Total number of thrusts
- Frequency of sex
- How long sex lasts
- Average speed of thrusts
All of that is kept anonymous, unless you want bragging rights to share it with the world. It can also go for up to eight hours on a single charge and alert you to the presence of sexually transmitted diseases. The latter alone is worth the co$t.
“Have you ever wondered how many calories you’re burning during intercourse? How many thrusts? Speed of your thrusts?”
—Actual text from I.Con’s site
Can you imagine the contests you and your lover can come up with using the stats from this thing? “Honey, we did seven thrusts for over 20 seconds last time…”
The Sun reports 90,000 people have already pre-ordered the device.
