Another failed idea – Clothes that vanish when you’re aroused

This is not worth spending a lot of time on, but someone is not thinking about this stuff very hard.  Yesterday’s Huffington Post has an article on Intimacy 2.0 – the slightly preposterous idea that you would want to have an article of clothing which becomes more revealing when you get aroused and you, as the person who is wearing it, cannot control it.  One could imagine some extraordinary personalities for whom this might work some tiny fraction of the time.  But lets be real kids, there is not significant market for this type of garment outside of a small niche of sex workers.

Clothes which become more revealing as you get aroused seems like trouble

I think if you really wanted to marry technology with intimacy, you would create something which sent signals to other garments and responded not by vanishing, but by brightening up.

    Really? Is your sex life that vanilla? Americans spend billions annually on lingerie and sex toys. You might not see this in WalMart, but with some refinement, surely there is a market that extends far beyond niche sex workers.

    Dearest Michael:

    You are not the first person to call my sex life vanilla. And you might well be right. But i would be willing to bet they are not selling $100K per year of these in 5 years. It will likely be pricy, and i think it is a fickle market. And if you said you knew much more about it than me i would defer to you – but i would also offer a bet.

      how is one’s sex life vanilla if they’re poly?

      • paxus says :

        Vanilla is not a description of poly topography (which in my case is best characterized by the word Byzantine), it is about sex practice preferences and is a loving mocking description of people who are not into kinkier practices, by those who perhaps are.
