I recently spoke to NBC News’ Chris Morris re wider society’s mad rush to wearables — devices like Fitbits and such that monitor a person’s physical activity and overall physical health/wellbeing — and why sex wearables are a logical extension of that trend.

The mainstream powers that be don’t seem to be picking up on the demand though, leaving it to innovative adult novelty developers and manufacturers — as such, “Sex Wearables Go Where Fitbit Dares Not Tread.”

Read the piece in full, with additional insights from novelty OhMiBod’s Brian Dunham, Nuelle’s Karen Long, and Vivid’s Steve Hirsch, on NBC News right here (1/21/16)

Here are some thoughts from me re sex wearables:

Chauntelle Tibbals, PhD, a former visiting scholar at the University of Southern California (USC) and author of “Exposure: A Sociologist Explores Sex, Society, and Adult Entertainment,” says sex wearables are a logical extension for the adult novelty industry.

“It makes sense in this world where everybody has a Fitbit or an app to track their exercise that they’d track their sexual activity, too,” she said.
