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!"

    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.
