You just missed the Twitter orgy of the century

To celebrate ‘masturbation May’, innovative sex toy company Lovense organised a Twitter orgy, which began Saturday 22 May at midnight Eastern Time and ran for a full 24 hours. So, what did it consist of exactly and did you actually miss out on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity?

If you’ve never heard of Lovense before, it is a Singapore-based teledildonics sex toy manufacturer mostly known for its VR and smart sex toys, which can be controlled via Bluetooth using the company’s own mobile app.

Lovense’s idea was pretty straightforward: users connected to the internet orgy using the Lovense Remote or the Lovense Connect app (available on the App Store and Google Play) in order to experience vibrations in real-time as Twitter users posted using official hashtags. Any time someone tweeted or retweeted one of the selected hashtags, users who had agreed to opt-in to the event received a vibration on their device.

“Bringing people to the incredible joys of sex tech is our main goal, so we are very pleased to invite everyone to join this exciting event,” Lovense CEO Dan Liu said in a statement. “The Lovense Orgy is a wonderful occasion to unite the whole world and festively celebrate Masturbation May together.”

The company’s first Twitter orgy was open to anyone over the age of 18 with the company’s internet-connected devices. Once they joined via the connected app, their toys vibrated in time with  Lovense’s active hashtags for the event—of which there were 17.

Each hashtag set off a different vibration pattern from the Lovense library. Tweets with #Lovense sent out the ‘Firework pattern’, while tweets with #LovenseOrgy set off the ‘Earthquake pattern’. The other 15 hashtags were released on the day of the orgy. All of the remaining ones were created by “friends and partners of Lovense” to be released specifically for the orgy. You simply had to tune in to try them out.

But how exactly does a coordinated orgy using Twitter hashtags and Bluetooth-connected sex toys work? Connected teledildonics have been around for a couple of years now—from CamSoda’s vibrator that lets you know when your food delivery is about to arrive to sex simulators and VR porn games, it would be an understatement to say that the industry is booming.

Lovense is part of this industry, and it’s already managed to stand out from the crowd in December 2020, when it announced the official launch of the Group Control feature on its app, which allows up to 100 people to participate in virtual orgies using the company’s connected sex toys.

Through Group Control, everyone has the ability to take control of someone else’s device (with their consent, of course) and they can be synced to simulate sexual acts. Vibration power and frequency can be adjusted in real-time, or users can download patterns created by others. The chat also features a push-to-talk feature and supports any sexy images you want to send.

Lovense offers products for all genders, which means anyone can join the party. The moral of the story is, even though you missed the Twitter orgy of the century, you can still find what you’re looking for—along with a bit more privacy—on Lovense Remote.

The future of pleasure is coming, and it’s honestly so polite of it to make sure we are too.
