This Hands-Free Vibrator Wants to Bridge the Gendered ‘Pleasure Gap’

There is a crisis among us.

Hands-Free Vibrator

Men are orgasming like overzealous sprinklers, while women are experiencing a record-breaking drought. The solution? Eva, a hands-free, incognito vibrator that’s less obtrusive than a hulking dildo and more precise than a $4 cock ring.

Developed by Ivy leaguers Alexandra Fine and Janet Lieberman — a Columbia Master’s in Clinical Psychology grad and MIT-bred engineer, respectively — the Eva features a wearable vibrating device that stimulates the clitoris without interfering with the actual deed. Keeping the wall of lubed-up plastic and frequent adjustments (aka mood killers) to a minimum.

“Our solution is a very small vibrator — kind of like a bullet, but we’ve gotten it to be, we think, significantly stronger. We added these wings to it that tuck underneath the labia majora and then they expand in that space,” Fine tells Refinery 29. Fine explains how she and Lieberman saw a need for a product that would bridge the gender “pleasure gap,” referencing a 2010 survey that reported 14.5 percent of female participants said their last sexual romp was either “not at all pleasurable” or only “a little” pleasurable. Now compare that to the 4.3 percent of male participants who reported similar sentiments.

Soon the pair began development, enlisting a fleet of 3D printers to pump out prototypes for immediate feedback. Now that’s the kind of study we’d be keen to.

The Eva’s final design is slick, and consists of three parts — the vibrator in the center and two flexible “wings” that adjust to a range of vagina shapes and sizes. For those wanting to start slow, the little motor hidden inside the center has three speeds. This lets couples ramp up from”gentle” to “almost intimidating.” From there, a simple touch of a button is all that’s needed to get the dancing vagina started (see below).

So far, the response to the savvy pair’s crowd-funding on Indiegogo has been met with titillating enthusiasm. The campaign already surpassed the $50,000 goal and currently sits at $109,000. For those looking to be one of the first to test drive the Eva, expect to shell out $95.

A hefty price for an orgasm you can achieve for free if your S/O just learned the female anatomy basics. Just saying.
