Afterglow Vibrator Brings Light Energy and Medical Science to Sex Tech

Say hello to the new wave of sexual technology: PulseWave.

Afterglow vibrator

What do you get if you combine some of the sharpest minds on the planet, give them access to the latest medical technology, and let them create one of the most innovative sex tech products on the market today?

No, it’s not the setup to a bad joke—far from it. The answer is Afterglow and it represents a vital step in the evolution of sex tech by focusing on pleasure as well as sexual health.

Afterglow is a dual stimulation vibrator that uses the latest scientific advances to bring about increased enjoyment for both solo use and playtime with a partner. The brains working for and with Afterglow have imbued this new wand of wonder with PulseWave light technology.

The lowdown on Afterglow

PulseWave combines light energy and vibration to increase arousal by increasing blood flow to the necessary areas, achieve a greater and more powerful climax (Afterglow reports that some test users enjoyed their very first orgasms with the product), and even includes lightwave patterns that are proven to decrease yeast and harmful bacteria in and around genitalia.

The device made with body-safe, non-toxic materials that are both water-resistant and easy to clean, greatly reducing the risk of germs, disease, and infection. It is also incredibly user-friendly thanks to its large silicon buttons, allowing for use in the dark and those enjoyable moments where your eyes are closed and the moment has whisked you away.

The Afterglow is aimed primarily at women, but correct application to the male anatomy can also produce exciting results. Privacy should not be an issue either, as the Afterglow’s serenely quiet motor and “lights off mode” allow for your most intimate moments to be conducted without fear of embarrassment.

Sex tech and medical science

So what’s the big secret? What exactly is this ethereal “light energy” we are talking about? One word: photobiomodulation. Afterglow is the first vibrator in the world to incorporate this technology.

Photobiomodulation—aka Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)—is one of the more prominent emerging medical and veterinary healing techniques. How will it aid and increase the wonders of personal pleasure? You’ve read the words and seen the promises, so let’s allow the science to do the talking for us now.

Traditionally, photobiomodulation is used to heal an array of sports injuries, chronic pain, and ulcers. New research and application have allowed the method to be used for patients who want to lose weight, suffer from addiction, or even those who want to quit smoking. Any astronauts reading this will be keen to know that it can also be used to soothe muscular atrophy acquired after lengthy periods of weightlessness.

The Afterglow also comes with 15 unique “pleasure modes” and a rather startling—but no less incredible—85 different wave combinations. It means you’re going to get a lot more bang for your buck with a spine-tingling array of configurations waiting to be explored.

The brains of the operation

Afterglow Science was founded by Dr. Ralph Zipper in 2011. Zipper, who is regarded as a world leader in pelvic medicine, completed his training at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He’s also been a key figure in the development of the Incisionless Vaginal Rejuvenation [NSFW] procedure.

“This is the beginning of an exciting journey,” says the Afterglow website. “Our team of Pelvic Medicine specialists, sexual therapists, and engineers continue to work on the next generation of intelligent adult toys. One day in the not too distant future, people will look back at adult toys and say, ‘Really, they vibrated?’”

The potential advances offered by Afterglow in regards to both pleasure for the user and its medicinal properties cannot be underestimated. With such strong foundations in place, we can only wonder just how far Zipper, his colleagues, as well as other sex tech companies and contemporaries can take this technology.

For now, you can simply lie back and enjoy wave after wave after PulseWave crashing upon your own personal shores. Let there be lightwave!
