Skin patch that improves men’s performance, vibrators and robot that simulates a human mouth at CES

Sex tech returned for another year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), with several companies showcasing a range of erotic devices that improve both men’s and women’s performance and experience between the sheets.

Satisfyer brought a trove of vibrators to the Las Vegas tech conference, all of which pair to a smartphone and some use the power of air to stimulate the body.

Health tech pioneer Lora DiCarlo is back for her third CES since the ban on sex tech was lifted in 2020 and this year her company a micro-bot that simulates a human mouth, providing gentle massage and pressure to remedy sexual dysfunction among women.

Technologies to increase men’s sexual performance are also present at the conference, with one firm debuting a smart patch that prolongs sexual intercourse.

Sex tech was banned from attending CES after its 2019 event, but the event’s organizers came under fire for the move and brought back in 2020 on a trial basis.

However, it seems the erotic devices are here to stay.

Lora DiCarlo is awarded for its micro-robot that simulates a human mouth 

Lora DiCarlo is a well-known name at CES, not just for the company’s erotic devices, but for an incident that happened in 2020.

Lora DiCarlo showed off its Baci-baci is a bio-inspired micro-robot that simulates a human mouth and was developed in partnership with researchers at Oregon State University's College of Engineering

One of its robotic massagers received an award that year, but it was quickly taken back because of its erotic nature.

However, that has not deterred Lora DiCarlo from attending a third year in a row and this year the company has again received an award for its Baci-baci – but it has not been disqualified this time.

Baci-baci is a bio-inspired micro-robot that simulates a human mouth and was developed in partnership with researchers at Oregon State University’s College of Engineering.

According to the American Sexual Health Association, the largest US study of female sexual dysfunction revealed that 21 percent  of women live with female orgasmic disorder (FOD), which is the inability to achieve orgasm despite arousal.

And the company’s founder, Lora DiCarlo, hopes the mini robot can change this.

'Baci-baci ( meaning'kiss' in Italian) introduces an entirely new category of consumer technology for women's health: an intelligent robot that replicates the feel and motion of the human lips and tongue,' according to the company

‘Small but mighty, it delivers direct, varied clitoral stimulation to end the frustration of failed orgasm.’

Men’s sexual health has a presence at the conference this year, which has been previously absent.
