As the internet and long distances continue to play a large and vital part in our sexuality, the market will be there to try to help us orgasm no matter the distance. Long-distance control allows for a person in one part of the world to control the sex toy of a person somewhere else in the world. The toys use an intermediary device for information transfer - like a computer or a mobile phone. Talk about fun!
We're already familiar with long-distance control in sex toys; We-Vibe has been dominating this field of the industry for awhile now with linkable toys like the Pivot, Ditto, Sync, Rave and more.
As technology continues to improve, we expect the toys to get even better! Expect faster real-time responses (especially as networks move to 5G!), more options for penis-owning individuals, and different designs and toy types that vibrate. Can't wait to see the new releases? Teledildonics are already a thing now!
VR-Enabled and Synchronized Toys
We're really looking forward to this one! VR-enabled and Synchronized toys are exactly how they sound: toys that connect to your device and synchronize themselves to some aspect of something online! We've already seen the start of this movement with KIIROO toys, but we're expecting to see even more!
Imagine using a dildo in one part of the world while your partner's synchronized masturbation sleeve provides the exact same sensations based on what you're doing. Imagine a vibrator or a male masturbation sleeve that syncs up to the adult performer you're watching on your VR headset for an ultra-realistic experience. That's the future, folks, and the future is starting in 2020.
Gamify your Sex Life
If you hang around self-improvement circles, you've probably already heard about how effective turning your goals into games can be. There's a whole host of apps out there that turns your daily routine goals (like drinking more water, exercising, and more!) into fun challenges and games! Just look at popular releases like the Ring Fit video game or the ever-popular FitBit activity wristwatches that pit you against your friends in playful competition.
We're expecting sex toy companies to latch onto that as well! Especially for sexual health (like kegel exercises!), gamifying your sex toys can lead to a whole host of fun! We already see the beginnings of gamified sex platforms in toys, like the LELO Luna Smart Bead, but we're expecting to see even more!
Imagine sex toys that use your physical sensations and pleasures to play various games - or orgasm training sleeves that measure your progress through various masturbatory challenges that train the body into prolonging orgasm.
Automated Penis Strokers
The industry has been trying to perfect automated penis strokers for a long time, and they've made leaps and bounds of progress within the past couple of years! While the industry has amazing and pleasurable penis sleeves (Fleshlight Stamina Training Unit, anyone?), making an affordable and easily-used automated penis stroker hasn't been perfected yet.
We expect to see a couple new manufacturers attempt to bring an amazing automated penis stroker to the market in 2020 - and we're so ready for it!
All-around, 2020 is going to be an amazing year - and we're expecting it to be amazing for sex toys too! Let's cross our fingers and watch our news feeds to see when the newest toys hit the market.
