Inventor’s Implantable Device Can Turn Your Boyfriend’s Penis Into A Vibrator

Looking to spice up your stale love life? An inventor thinks he’s found a solution to help couples kick things up a notch in the bedroom, if your willing to go under the knife that is.

Rich Lee, a 32-year-old salesman from St. George, Utah, has created a device called the Lovetron9000 that is implanted underneath the male pubic bone and causes the penis to vibrate.

Lee says his goal is to “turn your boyfriend into a vibrator.”

The Lovetron9000, which is still in the prototype stage, is a small motor embedded in a layer of pubic fat.

The Week adds:

Like a standard vibrator, it will feature multiple pulses and rhythms to cycle through, and there will also be a textured version of the device available, with bumps and ridges specifically “for her pleasure.”

The prospect might, at the very least, sound unappealing or just plain uncomfortable, but Lee doesn’t quite see it that way. He thinks his device is theoretically no different than breast implants or using the Hitachi Magic Wand during an unsatisfying sexual encounter: They’re all just tools we employ to bolster our enjoyment.

“People use toys in bed. They’re into BDSM,” Lee explained. “I don’t see how this will be any different. I see it as an enhancement.”

Lee is a self-described biohacker. Biohacking can loosely defined as “the process by which people attempt to augment or improve the biological systems of the human body.”

Lee belongs to a subset of biohackers called “grinders,” or “do-it-yourself cyborgs that are updating their bodies with hardware without waiting for corporate development cycles or authorities that say it’s OK,” as Amal Graafstra, a grinder who implanted a radio-frequency identification (RFID) microchip in his hand, put it in a 2013 TED talk on the subject.

To a certain extent, the aims of the grinder community overlap with those of the BM, or body modification, community: They both share the goal of using your body as a canvas, to often extreme or invasive effect. But unlike a body modification, the Lovetron9000 is, at least theoretically, intended for utilitarian, rather than aesthetic, purposes.
