WIRED -- May 27 -- When dorkbot decided to host a presentation for its members about the current state of teledildonics, they asked Violet Blue to step into the spotlight for a hands-on demo of the Thrillhammer, the first commercial teledildonic sex machine, housed at the Museum of Sex in New York. While Blue has written articles and lectured on the history of teledildonics, this is her first public demo. One of the factors hindering the development of internet-facilitated sex is that no one has yet figured out how to serve a basic consumer level, although HighJoy and Sinulate are both trying hard. Tribe should make social-networking with a really easy interface for anonymous sex that involves teledildonics.

Mark Brooks: Might be time Woody Allen made a sequel to Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex. I'll keep an eye out for the first (adult) online personals site that is 'teledildonics enabled.' Lest we forget, online dating sites are in the business of love...which means, by default, we are also in the sex business. Public sex awareness is becoming ever more open, and sites like www.passion.com (a FriendFinder co-brand of AdultFriendFinder) are reaping the reward.
