When is “too far” really too far? When is “up close and personal” just too up close and personal? When are “intimate” photographs way too intimate? I ask these questions because selfies are limited no more.
I don’t know about you, but the closeness I have with my partner during intimacy is not something I want to share at any other time or with any other ten thousand people. However, if you’re of a different mind and vagina, opportunity is now knocking at your nether regions.
A number of retailers have begun selling a little—four inches little, to be precise—device called the SVAKOM, also known as the “vagina cam.” (Editor’s note: that’s an Amazon affiliate link, and it’s worth the click for the “Misleading” product review alone!)
That’s right, ladies. There is now a vibrator/camera on the market that allows you to FaceTime your most secret regions. This device is currently flying off the shelves for the modest price of anywhere between $100 and $200, depending on the model.
International sex shop, Lovehoney, has an age-restricted video about it on their YouTube channel if you’re brave enough to click beyond their content warning.
But wait, there’s more! Not only can you share photos and FaceTime videos of your private place with the one you love, you can share them online with the entire world. Additionally, if you are so inclined, you can record and share the heights of joy that your vibrator brings you—as well as the exact moment when you reach the brink of insanity. Just charge the battery and away you go! When you’re done, simply connect the cable to the computer, push a button, and upload for all the world to see.
Not only does the SVAKOM do all of these things, the video/pictures/porn you create are all captured in HD. What a deal! Now you too can see what has been a mystery to everyone except your OB/GYN and your newborn children. Home movies will soon take on a new meaning. Screenings will require signed consent and copious amounts of alcohol.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been that curious about what lies in the darker crevices of my body. I think my physician being intimately familiar with those regions is one person too many, and I’m certainly not about to add my own name to the list of those “in the know.” Nor will I add this information to my lover’s already overloaded mind.
I’m just waiting for the first time someone hacks into a celebrity’s FaceTime video of her lady parts, because then the legal wars will begin. You just know she’ll claim invasion of privacy. Really? Who invaded what first?
