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."

Lovense: "Use teledildonics to improve your sex life!"

    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.

    I like my pussy hot and bothered by being on fire.

    Just don't get distracted when grabbing one of those for bathtub fun.

    You say Lithium Ion batteries are too dangerous, and then talk about putting 220 Volts in that place?

      With the motor outside the body, not inserted before getting dressed so it'll be a lengthy process to remove it. I'm sure the searing pain won't with coordination either.
