April is almost here, and the now traditional sex-related fool jokes have started appearing early this year. The problem is, of course, that the media are taking the bait hook, line and sinker as always – because for “serious” people sex is weird by definition, so everything’s legit. Especially if it appeared on that crazy young (b. 1991) videogame-thingy called the Web that nerdy kids use. But let’s see what this is all about.
Dextrüs by Lelo should be «the first vibrator to make you smarter», marketed to right-handed people only. You see, 90% of the world’s population is missing the outstanding orgasms (71% stronger!) experienced by southpaws because it is dominated by the cold, analytical left brain hemisphere. So the logical answer is to squeeze a vibrating ball in your left hand while you fuck: this will stimulate the creative and intuitive right hemisphere, «giving sex a level playing field». Hey, it will even make you smarter at work!
To clear it up: no, it doesn’t work that way – and no such vibrator exists, even. After all, this very clever joke and brand marketing campaign comes from the same guys behind last year’s Gäsm, the Ikea-style vibrator. The viral video that got released early (by design?) makes for a great laugh anyway – especially when you start counting all the “reputable” media which are already praising it as a great innovation. Maybe they could use a bit of vibrator-induced intelligence?
