a robot you wrap around your genitals

Um, no thanks.

I am not wholly averse to such an idea. But they had better make sure it doesn’t ask for alimony when it’s time to upgrade.

(they’re just jokes, people.)

That’s to techie for me. Could we have an Alice, Bob and Charlie explanation?

Talk about getting screwed! /rimshot

Let’s just hope nobody finds out about the Vagina Dentata command.

“Connected sex-toy allows for code-injection attacks on a robot you wrap around your genitals” sounds a lot scarier than, “malicious code causes your sex-toy to vibrate oddly,” I guess.

Seems like hacking this would be a lot of work with not a lot of pay off. I mean, if there is no shot at money, why even do it?


#9

For the happy ending, I guess.

I’ve waited my whole life for a robot that wraps around my genitals.

There’s totally a basis here for a gritty cyberpunk novella about sexually-transmitted computer viruses - maybe sort of like what Stephenson did in The Diamond Age.

Or at least another Chuck Tingle story, anyway.

Hey, whatever floats your boat.

I’d say it’s the same danger as every cheapo embedded device we hang off our home wi-fi network: once the hacker has something - anything - running their code they can use it to call home and open the door to hack all the stuff you actually care about.
At a bare minimum these devices would be linked to an online account with an email, password and maybe some credit card data.

eventually there will be a kink for this

Is this like 1 800 Flowers?

Hey, this florist shop is cool!

are these stories related?

Way too small a robot. In order for me to get busy with maximum efficiency, I need a girl with a 400-ton booty.


#19

There are always more Chuck Tingle stories.

You… do you mean like my genitals?
