back to article Scots to pioneer remote sex via glowing ring

A Scottish company trialling "intimate communication over a distance" is seeking couples interested in drawing lines of light on each other's bodies rather than the more-traditional teledildonics hardware. The technology comes from Forres-based Distance Labs, who are looking for three couples in which one partner is based near …

    If this thing takes off,is dogging going to consist of strange men hiding in bushes in local parks, pants down, 'groping' women 200 metres away with a laser pointer?

    It's Japanese. Those kinky guys get their kicks from just about anything, it seems. Call me when the first orgasm by light pen has happened.

    Sex with a glowing ring? How passe (and sore).

    confused description?

    Perhaps the word "sex" is more than a bit out of place in this description?

    The actual technology could very well be succesful as a complementary and supportive technology for entertainment and the maintenance of the "fuzzy feeling" required in good quality intimate relationship. But to use the word "sex"- or to discuss "sex via a glowing ring??? It would have been better to use the word "love". I also believe that the use of the concept of "sex" in this instance is not going to do the product any good. It is very important to be good at managing peoples expectations - misrepresentation will push this kind of technology into obscurity.

    I think it would be a shame to sabotage this idea with a badly thought through promotion - as it looks to be possible to create some nice IT related products using this technology.

    I'll stay with sexting - so much more traditional.

    The concept has been around for some time. Look it up - it is a real word , albeit a neologism. It has real potential in this internet remote sex age. Remote interactive sex toys. Woody Allen meets JG Ballard.

    at last a real use for IT. That picture is a bit ambiguous - do you put it over your head, or elsewhere, or insert it somewhere?

    Just masturbate into an envelope then post it to her. It's the thought that counts.

    "to see if drawing lines of light on each other's bodies can replicate some of the ambiance involved in relationships."

    Does it have an attachment that throws crockery or one that enables the partners to scream at deafening volumes at each other? How about the bit that storms out of the house slamming the door on the way?

    @Quantum entanglement ?

    If you had entangled light pens, you wouldn't need a comms link.

    Oh no! my mind has now strayed to entangled dildos and even the possibility

    of couples getting their nasty bits entangled so that they can perform spooky bonking at a distance.

    GIven their falling birthrates, the Japanese had better get busy with the real thing rather than playing with light pens.
