Right-handed Vibrator DEXTRÜS: Funny or Feasible?

Have you seen DEXTRÜS? It’s a revolutionary new LELO that makes people smarter and gives absolutely mind-blowing orgasms by stimulating the right brain to help you think and feel like a left-handed person.

Dextrus-Fact or Fiction

Sounds pretty amazing, right? Well, we’ve got to come clean here and tell you that DEXTRÜS was in fact an April Fool’s joke; sorry to get your hopes up.

A RIGHT-HANDED VIBE: FUNNY, BUT IS IT FEASIBLE?

Believe it or not, a number of the claims we made surrounding DEXTRÜS and how it works are based on actual fact – so people who fell for our latest April Fool can be forgiven for doing so.

However could LELO make a product like DEXTRÜS for real? Well, yes and no. While there are aspects that are just too outlandish to be made possible, there are some features of our ‘latest release’ that you will definitely be seeing in future LELO products – you’ll just have to keep your eyes open to know which ones!

DEXTRÜS GIVEAWAY WINNERS

Are you one of the people who signed up to the LELO Newsletter in order to win DEXTRÜS? While we’re sorry to say that no one will be winning DEXTRÜS, for obvious reasons, we’re offering the following three people their choice of whichever LELO product they like:

Congratulations to Serge from Belgium, Anniene from Australia and Tiffanie from the USA – we’ll be in touch with you shortly, and thanks to everyone who got involved.

DEXTRÜS COVERAGE

If you did fall for DEXTRÜS, don’t feel bad – you weren’t the only one. People all over the world were understandably very excited at the prospect of a brain-boosting vibrator that can make you more sexually satisfied and successful at the same time, and the huge media coverage DEXTRÜS received only pushed peoples’ beliefs further.

Tech and science blog i09 called DEXTRÜS “Pseudoscience at its craziest”, saying “I’ve never seen this collection of nonsense ideas concatenated quite like this before. You’ve got to love the crackpot ingenuity that cobbled together the idea of a “left brain orgasm” and tried to turn it into a work productivity tool.

Ireland’s The Journal asks “What is this smut?”, while AskMen.com sees the potential, saying that DEXTRÜS “… is a sex toy that requires buying in to a lot of seemingly outlandish claims, but who knows? They might be on to something…”

Media_Logos

Computer Magazine dismissed DEXTRÜS (which in the case of an April Fool’s joke means ‘honored’) by saying that it ‘… wins today’s pseudoscience quackery sweepstakes.’

Australian newsreaders also got a face full of DEXTRÜS on News.com.au, and people in Ireland got the joke (or didn’t) in The Daily Edge.

Just like GÄSM, our awesome April Fool’s Prank from last year, we fooled as many people as we made laugh with our outlandish idea in DEXTRÜS.

However we absolutely didn’t fool the clever writers at Nerve, who quickly pegged DEXTRUS as a sham after doing a Google search for research source Sinister College, which they discovered was “… faker than Dorito cheese.” Meanwhile, WomensHealthMag.com figured it out early, saying that DEXTRÜS is “… like a stress ball and a vibrator had a baby!”

Our Twitter feed was on fire with tweets from customers trying to sort truth from fiction. Some were excited about the prospect of such a beneficial new product, while other were outraged that we claimed results from the LELO Global Sex Survey showed such a pleasure disparity between left and right-handed people.

However we weren’t alone in this clowning around caper: a number of our participating retailers joined in, showing their customers LELO’s “next” product.

  1. I’m new to Lelo products so I did fall for the joke but it was a great joke that didn’t make me stop being a follower of Lelo. Great job!!!

  2. I spotted it as an April Fool joke right away, but I’m pretty experienced about what sex toys can and can’t do! (I review sex toys from a senior perspective at http://www.NakedAtOurAge.com.)

  3. My wife and i found LELO vibrators in a local sex shop perhaps around three years ago. Earlier this year we exhausted our Elise and had to retire it.

    Being the hacker i am, i decided to tear it down. The problem was: somehow, during a play session or maybe a cleaning session, we got some liquid into the handle end causing a catastrophic failure of the control hardware.

    Since then i’ve overhauled two of our lesser vibes, but they are just not the same.

    Two comments:

    1) the LELO feels of such high quality because it is constructed with quality parts, which are glued together inside the two halves under pressure to ensure nothing inside rattles. And the silicone skin is second to none.

    See my teardown photos on forums.hackaday.com, by searching ‘vibrator’ or ‘premium vibrator.’

    2) if i were one of your engineers i would make two changes: first, the control hardware would be fully laminated in plastic, including the charging port. This could then have the button pad set atop it, and the charging port could be used for a small inductive charging plug. I believe this would certainly do a better job protecting users’ investments.

    Thanks, and keep making the top products!

  4. Best April Fools joke I ever fell for.
