When it comes to self-pleasuring, masturbation is perhaps the easiest activity men get involved in. According to data, 96% of men indulge in masturbation and spend over 14 minutes per session and 46 hours a year pleasuring themselves. Korean startup Dplug Labs has launched an adult toy called the Dulcet which comes with audio analysis technology that analyzes and detects female pleasure sounds to provide the same experience as actual intercourse.
Founded in 2018 by the Dplug Labs team, the vibrator tool is powered by a sound-sensitive controllable actuator that detects unique frequencies of women’s voices and provides a realistic experience of contraction and relaxation of the vagina. The company hopes to play a strong supporting role in the sex lives of those facing sexual problems due to age, disorder or other infirmities.
Smarter option for optimal sexual experience
The Dulcet is better than other multifunctional adult toys that feel unrealistic and are therefore unsatisfying. The smart app also learns user usage and gets smarter every time. It also recommends the videos and categories that the user might like.
The body of the masturbator is made from a thermoplastic elastomer that gives a human-like skin feel and boasts of modern design. The temperature is set at 36.5 degrees(can be set up to 40 degrees) which is the same as the human body. It can be used on any platform and costs $129, the most competitive in the segment of adult toys offering AI sound tech and compatibility with a VR video.
The future of self-pleasuring is VR
The VR market is fast growing and is set to transform the most intimate areas of life such as sex and dating. According to Zion Market research in 2018, the VR market is projected to reach $26.82 billion by 2022 and the VR adult content is projected to reach $1 billion by 2025 (Piper Jaffray, 2015). The men’s adult toy market is also rising steeply and expected to reach $12.42 billion by 2023. Dplug Labs offers a monthly subscription, with 4 sleeves for the Masturbator, at $24.99 per month. The company received a seed investment of $100K in 2018 and is expected to sell over 23K products in early 2020. It expects to sell 340,000 products by the end of 2020 and earn revenue of $22,884,700.
