Durex just announced what it’s calling “Fundawear”, which ostensibly stands for “fun underwear” but which Durex believes will eventually come to mean “article of clothing that is fun like once ever and until you realize what horror you’ve wreaked in your pants and never want to talk about it again.”

The undergarments are loaded with touch technology, and are controlled by a smartphone app—an iPhone in the demo videos—that knows what gender your partner is. The app has diagrams of your partner’s crotch, which you drag your finger across to stimulate their actual crotch from wherever you are in the world.

    Or you could, you know, get a date.

    … and when someone will try to go thru airport security with that thing on, we will hear about it in the news.
    “remove all your electronic devices” 🙂

    “…knows what gender your partner is”

    Don’t the au courant think that’s all in the mind anyway?

  6. Benjamin says:

    How is this a good idea?

    Is it sexual assault to hack this app?

    Someone is going to use this underwear to remote detonate a bomb.

      Yes and you’ll have Fun, fun, fun ’til daddy hacks in and takes the T-Bird away!

  8. Uncle Patso says:

    I can’t see how these things could be machine-washable.

    I also can’t see taking them to the dry cleaner.

    • noname says:

      Best stain removal is a heavy wash with good detergent with fabric softener and no dry cleaning.

    Talk about catching a VIRUS or getting HACKED!


    This also reminds me of that one episode of “The Big Bang Theory” where they made remote kissing devices (where Howard and Raj tested it out in front of Leonard). Now, all we need is a data glove or two and we may see a whole new virtual sex ndustry pop up! (Get it? “pop up”!) It would also make me wonder wonder what the DMCA might say about it too!

    The first thought that occurred to me was who is going to wear these knowing that they are at the mercy of whoever has control of the I phone. Then I thought this could really take off as a novelty item.

    Made me laugh thanks lee

    There has been no better pairing of a picture and a news article in a long time.

    Please, please tell me this isn’t real life.
