Glenise Kinard-Moore presents sex tech invention VDOM
Glenise 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.
The 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, stated Ford.”
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.
