Are smart sex toys safe? What are SexTech companies doing to prevent and avoid another WeVibe case?
What was the WeVibe case? Basically, the company was accused of collecting data from their smart sex toys without users’ consent. Big consequences included media exposure (which was quite pessimistic and not quite fair) on smart vibrators, and some people have been getting a bit concerned about privacy, data, and sex toys.
What are (if any) the potential risks of using and sharing data about your sexual preferences?
People love smart vibrators—we know they do. Some like different features, such as remote controls or vibration mode settings, or they’re happy to have the chance to experience sex with their partner when one is in NYC and the other in London. We also know there are people who don’t fancy smart sex toys, which is also totally fine.
At Pureeros, we respect everybody’s choice in using (or not using) smart sex toys. As we provide you with the best high-end and high-tech sex toys, we also want to be sure you have all the information you need to give an informative, enthusiastic consent to use data (as Stephany Alys, Co-Founder and Chief Pleasure Officer of MysteryVibe will tell you in the following video).
To answer your doubts or questions about data and what SexTech companies are doing to face an extremely important topic: your privacy, we’d love it if you watched Stephanie’s speech at the TNW Conference this year.
But mostly, we are pretty sure many companies will follow MysteryVibe’s approach based on communication, consent and commitment.
