WIRED -- Apr 29 -- Would you have cybersex with someone you met through an online dating site? Would you go on a date with someone you met through a cybersex chat room? HighJoy is betting that you will. Lynn Borne, the director of marketing, asked me to hold the Doc Johnson iVibe Rabbit while he walked me through the chat client and the online control panel for the toy. Amir Vatan, the CEO, retreated to his office so he could be on the other end of my virgin HighJoy chat. Amir describes the company as something between AdultFriendFinder and Match.com. "Just online dating? Or online dating and these tools?" he says, gesturing to the array of vibrators on the conference table. He sees HighJoy as the logical next step for those who enjoy making connections online. I suspect the first wave of members will sign on for the promise of virtual sex and the hope of hooking up in person. I don't see the eHarmony crowd migrating to HighJoy, but fans of SuicideGirls, Nerve and PalTalk's adult communities will probably feel right at home.
