Words, Eroticism, and Technology: B.Sensory May Very Well Combine Them All
Can a new company add a physically sexy dimension to erotic literature?
“In my sex fantasy, nobody ever loves me for my mind.”
Technologically speaking, writing sits in a very odd place. Sure, the typewriter, then the word processor, and now ebooks have totally changed the entire business of telling stories. But the end result is always the same.
Novel or story, saga or memoir, fiction or non; you pick it up—and read it. However, has anyone really contemplated adding anything more to the actual reading experience?
This is where French company B.Sensory comes in. With its Little Bird sex toy it’s developing an app (Android and iOS) that links ebook erotic stories and sex tech. This pairing aims to enhance the reader’s experience with all kinds of arousing vibrations, buzzes, and more.
The reader, meanwhile, can control when, where, and how much of a vibratory enhancement they receive by interacting with their chosen e-reader. A By shaking stroking… even blowing on the screen, the story they’re reading takes on a whole new—and sexy—dimension that delivered through the Little Bird.
Adding to the fun, the Little bird can be synched with audio books as well, meaning that it will be possible for some truly “hands-off” experiences with the technology.
While the technology is still in development, according to B.Sensory we should be able to add a new kind of thrill to reading or listening to erotica in the spring.
Okay, time for a touch of disclosure. As a few of you may know I’m “kind of” known as an erotica writer. I’m not going to brag about what I’ve done— for that see my site—but I’ve been pretty much everywhere when it comes to sexy stories: columnist, novelist, editor, and even a publisher. So you can imagine that I am not going to let something like B.Sensory cross my path without being involved, somehow, in it—if just to have them use a few of my stories.
But, that being said, I honestly think this tech has a very promising future. One of my personal fetishes is technology, especially the incredible changes it’s brought to human sexuality. So here I am, writing for the great folks at Future of Sex.
Cinema has virtual reality, cooking has molecular gastronomy, music has electroacoustics, but what about writing? Not just because I might be involved in this venture, I really do think this could be an opportunity for erotica to take a big leap.
I’m eager to see the impact of B.Sensory in giving sexy storytelling a completely unique and new feeling (literally) to the genre.
