Kinard-Moore is on a mission to humanize sex with her latest invention, the
VDOM. She just so happens to be a lesbian, African American, and from one of
the fastest growing startup scenes in the country, Atlanta, Georgia.
In mid-2019, Kinard-Moore
founded SkiiMoo Tech LLC, a tech-based consumer product firm and the parent
company of VDOM LLC. VDOM LLC
specializes in the creation of prosthetic genital devices to enhance intimate
adult experiences, with an emphasis on the LGBTQIA+ community.
VDOM, her first invention, is a patent-pending app-connected wearable device
that can go from flaccid to erect at the push of a button or via a swipe on a
smartphone or smartwatch using The VDOM Mobile app.
“I am empowering people with sexual restrictions or inhibitions to enjoy
intimate moments without hassle or awkwardness through the use of technology
and innovation combined,” commented Kinard-Moore.
For LGBTQIA+ persons,
particularly lesbian, queer women and trans men, enjoying intimate moments
spontaneously arrives with unique challenges. These challenges are most
relevant to instances where partners use a strap-on with one another.
“Sex involving a
strap-on is very common within the LGBTQIA+ community. And it can be fun!
However, it can also be clumsy as well as difficult, to enjoy sex
spontaneously,” added Kinard-Moore.
The VDOM removes this
layer of clumsiness via its app-enabled technology, with the ability to go from
flaccid to erect at the push of a button.
Sex tech is now
projected to be a $30+-billion-dollar
industry, with innovators coming forward throughout the
world. Even so, very few sex tech founders have addressed the unique needs of lesbian,
queer women and trans men as Kinard-Moore’s VDOM plans to.
Tiffany Ford, Founder
of up and coming Toronto based VC firm, Co-Fund Capital, is confident that VDOM
is set to positively disrupt sex tech.
“VDOM is the perfect
impact investment opportunity with a real solution for the FTM community,
VDOM is currently
seeking investment and has launched a crowdfunding campaign on ifundwomen.com
which can be supported here. The VDOM prototype
is scheduled to be finalized late May 2020.
