Connected sex toys recorded intimate sessions without consent
Days ago, a Redditor discovered that their Lovense remote control app was unknowingly recording audio of a six-minute intimate session between the user and their significant other. It happened while they used the app to control the Lovense vibrator it's paired with, and it saved the recording to a local file buried in the phone's media storage. Another commenter, claiming to be a Lovense representative, said these recordings are the result of a "minor software bug."

I would be more worried about what is powering these new fancy vibrators. In ye olden days, it was a long line of D-Cell batteries (or a twelve volt battery for the brave). These day it is a formed brick of lithium ion that might literally explode in a pussy. I haven't heard of it yet, but I would imagine it is only a matter of time.
These new fandangled teledidonics are a bad idea. Not everything needs to become wireless and miniaturized. I'm sure some dildo customers would appreciate a corded 220 volt model, or one that can hook up to your standard air compressor you might find in a shop.
