One of the things people rarely discuss openly is sexual health, but just like every other facet of our day-to-day lives, it plays an important part. At IFA, several manufacturers are showcasing their sexual health aids — including the companies MysteryVibe and MYHIXEL.
Using a sexual health aid to climax — alone or with a partner — can help women with their management of stress (which helps with heart health). It can help them relax ( climaxing releases dopamine and oxytocin along with other beneficial side effects for relaxation and health). Using a vibrator can also help women sleep better, relieve period cramps and pelvic pain, improve their pelvic muscles (which is a massive help with bladder control, especially after childbirth or as women age). It can increase comfort with their own bodies and lead to a more satisfying sex life. Men receive many of the same benefits (minus the pelvic pain and period cramp relief, of course). There are also sexual wellness devices that can help men overcome issues they tend not to want to discuss, like premature ejaculation and other types of sexual dysfunction. Whether you are single and not looking to mingle (especially during a pandemic!), in a committed relationship with a partner, or interested in trying something new to keep things interesting, there is a piece of tech that can help.
The Crescendo is MysteryVibe’s flagship product. Flexible, bendable, and made to fit your body, the Crescendo is made from premium body-safe silicone; it’s also 100% waterproof and easy to clean. The Crescendo features six independent motors, 16 intensities, and over 40 vibration patterns, so you are sure to find something that works for you. When coupled with the MysteryVibe iOS or Android app (which works from up to 30′ away), you (or your partner) can explore the app’s pre-set vibration patterns, or you can create and save your own. The Crescendo has a rechargeable battery that will last up to two hours, and it includes a wireless charger.
The MysteryVibe Crescendo sells for $149.99.
If you are looking for something a little smaller and more discreet than the Crescendo, the MysteryVibe Poco will fit the bill. It is a smart, portable, and also bendable bullet vibrator that features two independent motors, 16 intensity levels, and eight pre-set vibration patterns. The Poco is water-resistant, easy to clean, and safe for use in the shower. It can also be coupled with the MysteryVibe App (it also works from up to 30′ away). The MysteryVibe Poco has a rechargeable battery that will last for up to an hour, and it charges via USB port.
The MysteryVibe Poco sells for $89.99.
The MysteryVibe Tenuto is a smart, wearable vibrator for men and people with penises. Using the Tenuto encourages exploration and helps with stronger, longer-lasting erections with increased blood flow to the penis. The Tenuto features six independent motors, and it has eight pre-set vibration patterns — which can also be controlled with the MysterVibe app (you guessed it — from up to 30′ away) by you or a partner. Tenuto is water-resistant and safe for use in the shower, and it is also easy to clean. The battery lasts for up to 1.5 hours, and it recharges via USB.
The MysteryVibe Tenuto sells for $169.99.
If you prefer not to bring your phone into the bedroom, but you still want to maintain all of the customizations you can get through the MysteryVibe app, then you’ll want to check out the brand new MysteryVibe Remote. It’s also helpful for users with disabilities or mobility issues who can’t comfortably reach the silicone-covered buttons built into the vibrators themselves. The MysteryVibe remote works seamlessly with all three MysteryVibe products mentioned here, and it has large, tactile buttons to make operation more accessible in the dark or by those with limited visibility or dexterity. With the Remote, up to three MysteryVibe products can be controlled at the same time, so it’s a handy little multitasker. The battery lasts for up to 20 hours, and it comes with a set to get you started.
Pricing and availability for the MysteryVibe Remote will be announced soon.
MYHIXEL’s products address the top sexual concern among men: premature ejaculation. PE is a widespread issue — affecting as many as one out of three men— and there is a large percentage of men who won’t see their doctor or even talk to anyone about PE because they are embarrassed or because they think it is “just something I have to live with.” That’s not true. MYHIXEL uses a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy, a pleasure device, and gamification to help people with penises achieve greater climax control. The MYHIXEL program was created in partnership with doctors, therapists, sexologists, and technology experts; together, they have created a pleasurable solution that is affirming and empowering.
There are two MYHIXEL programs available. The first is MYHIXEL TR, which is for men who want to be able to last longer in bed. It combines MYHIXEL I device with the exercise program Play TR to help men learn “specific motor skills to improve the quality and duration of their sexual performance.” MYHIXEL MED is for men who ejaculate under 3 minutes during penetrative sexual intercourse. It combines the MYHIXEL I device with the Play Med program to help men gain more self-confidence, and it has been clinically shown to help men learn to control ejaculation and build their stamina. The MYHIXEL MED includes a 15-minute appointment with a member of MYHIXEL’s specialized professional team with the aim of improving the quality of their sex life and their general well-being.
The MYHIXEL TR program sells for $240, and it is on sale for $203 at the time of this writing. The MYHIXEL MD program sells for $313, and it is on sale right now for $275.
