Could A Vibrator Make You Smarter?
Get ready to kill two birds with one…vibrator. The sex toy company Lelo says they have a new product that will actually make you smarter while also giving you an awesome orgasm.
Here's how: Left-handed people report being more sexually satisfied than right-handed people, according to a survey by Lelo. They also note that left-handed people are smarter and more creative, because the right side of their brain is dominant (however, recent research proves there is no such thing as "right-brained.") So Lelo wants to level the playing field by offering a vibrator exclusively for right-handed people. You squeeze it in your left hand while having sex or masturbating and the vibrations stimulate the right side of your brain—making you smarter and more aroused. Or you can just squeeze it at work (without pleasuring yourself obviously) to boost your on-the-job intelligence. It's like if a stress ball and a vibrator had a baby!
If this sounds too good to be true (or just too ridiculous), you're totally right. It's actually an early April Fools' joke from the company. Even the tech blog io9 fell for it, and Nerve was also convinced until they looked a little closer at the "research." Sorry guys, it's a joke! Lelo confirmed via email that this is definitely an April Fools' campaign, and they hope everyone gets a good laugh out of it. But if you're looking for an innovative new sex toy that actually exists, check out these 11 options you probably haven't heard of yet.
