Bridging the gap between sex tech and cyberpunk, an app-controlled prosthetic penis that can move between flaccid and erect with a single swipe, even from 250ft, launches.
The VDOM, created by Atlanta, Georgia-based black female entrepreneur and cybersecurity expert Glenise Kinard-Moore, is a seriously sophisticated alternative to the old-fashioned strap-on. The hyper-realistic prosthetic made of medical grade, ultra-soft, high quality silicone can be worn comfortably all day by all genders, works hands free, and rests in a flaccid state until called on for action.
The wearer of the VDOM can use a proprietary app to allow their partner to take control of the device and decide when their cyber penis is erect – anytime and anywhere. Partners can also send each other ping notifications when they are ready for intimacy.
The app functionality of the product calls for great care with cybersecurity, which makes self-described ‘tech nerd’ Kinard-Moore the ideal candidate for the work. Kinard-Moore, a certified information security professional who also runs tech start-up SkiiMoo Tech, developed the VDOM because she wanted to make love to her wife and felt hampered by limited and ineffective products. She says:
“To put it bluntly, I love sex, and I wanted to be able to have sex with my wife anywhere, at any time, and just as easily as heterosexual couples can without any awkwardness.
“The VDOM is by far the most challenging idea that I have worked on. But I felt like it had to be done for many reasons. There are many people who experience certain physical sexual restrictions – including ED and paraplegia – but only a very small handful of solutions that even to try to address those issues. I wanted to use my tech skills and knowledge to challenge myself to find a solution.
“I knew the prosthetic needed to be comfortable to wear all day, it needed to be hands-free as much as naturally possible, and it needed to be able to go from non-erect to erect via a simple process. We’ve achieved that, and as a result our customers are going to be able to ditch the strap-on.”
The prosthetic penis attaches to specially designed VDOM underwear, which can be comfortably worn by any gender. Penis-owners with ED or other challenges to achieving erection can wear the underwear and snap the VDOM over the top as an alternative option to medication or awkward medical prosthetic devices.
For extra play potential, the VDOM app allows the owner to give a partner permission to control their cyber penis anytime or for specific time periods, and via long distance. For modesty’s sake the app does allow for designated blackout times when the VDOM cannot be activated. People using the connected apps can also ping each other when ready for intimacy.
The VDOM will retail at $675 (£510) and is currently available for limited pre-orders. To pre-order, sign up for free VIP Membership on the VDOM site. VIP members get exclusive email updates, $200 (£148) off the VDOM retail price and a free pair of VDOM custom underwear that retails for $65.
