'Award-winning' sex toy for women banned from CES 2019

Lora DiCarlo said it had been invited to display its robotic Ose vibrator at CES, after winning an innovation award.
CES organiser the Consumer Technology Association, which granted the award, said it had included the device by mistake and could withdraw any immoral or obscene entry at any time.
The product had been designed in partnership with a robotics laboratory at Oregon State University and had eight patents pending for "robotics, biomimicry, and engineering feats", Ms Haddock said.
Ms Haddock said there was a double-standard at CES when it came to sexual health products targeted at men versus women.
Twitter users have reacted to the decision using the hashtag #CESGenderBias.
'CES is literally one big sex toy for men and that's always been OK'
My uni developed this wtf
"Men's sexuality is allowed to be explicit, with a literal sex robot in the shape of an unrealistically proportioned woman and VR porn in point of pride along the aisle," she said.
The products she is referring to are the RealDoll sex robot Harmony, which debuted at last year's event, and a room showcasing virtual reality porn off the main conference in 2017.
That's really shitty. Like, if those weren't in, I could see keeping the show non-sexual, but to allow those and not a super dildo is sexist.
what does it actually do
asking for a friend
That’s why we submitted our first ever product, Osé, for the CES
Innovation Awards - one of the most coveted awards in tech and the
perfect example of a space that needs to be shaken up and diversified.
You see, we’re doing something that has never been done before - we’re
making the world’s first hands-free device for the holy grail of orgasms
— the blended orgasm. Our almost entirely female team of engineers is
developing new micro-robotic technology that mimics all of the
sensations of a human mouth, tongue, and fingers, for an experience that
feels just like a real partner. The product even adjusts to each body's
unique physiology for a personal fit that hits all the right spots,
leaving the hands free for better uses. We’re talking about truly
Basically super dildo
According to their website:
RealFeel G-spot Massage
Unique g-spot massager caresses like a real partner, with a come-hither motion that uses advanced micro-robotic technology to get that perfect sensation.
Osé flexes and adapts to perfectly fit your body and always stays in place. Free your hands so your mind can wander.
BioMimic Clitoral Sensations
Touchless stimulation that feels like a partner’s mouth pulsing along the entire body of the clitoris, even the parts you can’t see.
Osé doesn’t need vibrations to get you there, just completely personalized g-spot and clitoral stimulation that perfectly fits your body.
I need 5 of them
"Men's sexuality is allowed to be explicit, with a literal sex robot in the shape of an unrealistically proportioned woman
Whaaaaaat? I have read nothing but negative articles written by women about why sex dolls are evil rape machines and reduces women to objects, all while defending dildos, a sex toy that boils a man down to his junk
Definitely don't see why VR porn and sex robots are allowed but this isn't.
Perhaps there's more to the story than the dildo maker is letting on.
Did you even read the article or did you just skim to cherry pick something to fit your worldview like you usually do?
those articles aren't by the same people
I actually read this earlier, her gripe is fine and her thing should be allowed if other stuff is showcased but her weird jab at male sex stuff makes no sense.
Women outright brag about how many plastic dongs they got in their dresser while most men would be laughed at by those same women for owning anything.
Gotta be honest I think there is some projection based assumption here. "Those same women" really? People in industries like these are incredibly accepting of anyone's sexual side, that's part of the point, hell there are even ladies that review toys and include male toys in their reviews to support both tastes.
Assuming that someone will laugh at you for something sexual because she is a woman is pretty middle-school.
you jump in and post weird cherry-picked shit in every thread that has to do with women at all so maybe the responses to your posts about women are warranted.
u dont know shit about women
signed: a wo-man
honestly ppl are just gonna laugh at anyone for owning dildos, it isnt like us thot-ass sluts are talking left and right about dildos like we're some secret shadowy slut-promoting bastard-shaming sex cabal. if i brought up 32 inch long schlongular fuck machines and shit to other slut-ass thots half of em would laugh at me too. idgaf if dudes have dildos or whatever either. in fact id encourage it, do your thang that makes you feel good man. anyone who has time to give a fuck about it is an idiot.
yknow whatd suggest to u that women think more similarly to you than you think? if you personally talked to more women, yknow, like people. cause yknow, the sexes arent so different as ur reagan-era battle-of-the-sexes-ass mindset would have you believe.
Please read the article.
I walked past a small display of vibrators this year, it was near the bread car.
gotta pleasure the yeast to get the bread to rise
Ok, then explain why this:
was allowed to be on stage at CES, if they have such a problem with the immoral and obscene? A literal full-body sex bot, from a company called RealDoll, at one of CES' stages. And that's not because of an old set of rules, or a different organizer, THIS IS FROM LAST YEAR'S EVENT.
The point is that those two things are sex toys, but one is intended for men and the other is intended for women. Guess which one is too "obscene" to be at trade shows?
That is the issue. That's why she says that male sexuality is allowed to be explicit and shown. Not in the context of the general public or social perception, but in the context of trade shows and other public events based on robotics and advances in technology.
Considering the shape, pretty sure it causes uncontrolled vocal outbursts and random mama slapping.
I thought both male and female members of the human species used dildos for entertainment purposes.
The sex bot is more disturbing than the dildo. At least the dildo isn't pretending to seem like the real thing.
if its a vibe dildo than its better than the real thing, men should be on high alert cause theyre bein replaced
are you literally jealous of being replaced by a dildo
Unless you can get into shouting arguments over trivial things with a dildo, men ain't getting replaced any time soon.
Been here long?
i feel like ur trying to be sexist against some group and either way i look at it i can see it both ways. im gonna have to ruminate on this conundrum in the thot-cave
they weren't in the show. that was something far away from the main venue
Alexa please start an argument
Booooooooy, I adapt, fuck getting replaced. Bring all the toys you want, we'll see how long you last.
Can it do that?
