An App-Controlled Vibrator That Lets You Pleasure Your Partner Remotely

If you find regular vibrators boring, the ‘We-Vibe 4+’ vibrator might interest you.

Just like this app-controlled vibrator, the ‘We-Vibe 4+’ can be controlled via an app.

The toy is made of matte silicone with ridges for making contact with the clitoris and anterior vaginal wall, also known as the G-spot. It comes with a wireless remote control and USB charger.

To use, download the free app from the App Store or Google Play and connect the gadget using Bluetooth.

You can use it even when you and your partner are apart; the app sends a private and secure link and you’re good to go.

Choose from 10 different modes and create custom vibration playlists with your desired vibe, duration and intensity.

Hayley Macmillen of Refinery29 road-tested it and reported having a satisfactory experience overall, stating it provided greater stimulation and that the partner aspect was “rewarding”.

Dove Shows Us How A Mother Feels About Her Body Can Affect Her Daughter

Personal care brand Dove has released a short film by Ogilvy Paris that explores the correlation between how mothers feel about their bodies and the effect it has on their daughters.

In the video, five pairs of mother and daughter were asked to list down what they liked and disliked about their bodies. Later, the lists were exchanged and read.

The mothers’ reactions were mostly surprised and wistful, because it turned out that their daughters listed down the same dislikes. One of them admitted that she had mentioned not liking a certain body part of hers to her daughter and that was probably why she listed it down too.

“Whether a mother, aunt, coach, teacher or sister, all women can set a positive example for the next generation by expressing their own beauty with confidence,” said Jennifer Bremner, director of marketing at Dove.
