Vibrator that makes you smarter

Does anyone buy into this? Would it have the same effect if a right handed person used a regular vibrator with their left hand?

Do you think lefties actually get more pleasure from sex?

Just for giggles, you may also want to check out the Gasm, the Eco friendly vibrator they announced April 1, 2013.

I don't know whether to believe Dextrus makes one smarter. I'd have to give it a try.

Well, at least Lelo has a sense of humor and doesn't take themselves too seriously. That's the first time I've seen a sex toy manufacturer play an April Fool's joke by publishing an article on a fake toy, the "Gasm".

As far as the Dextrus goes, I think it's ridiculously stupid and they should stick with making sex toys that actually stimulate you physically.

Nope. Like any toy I'd like to try it, but most things advertised with such gimmicks generally don't do as they say they will. Generally when things of the sort do work, they do so via placebo effect.

It doesss make you smarter to try and do tasks with a different hand than you're used to ( brush your teeth with the hand you don't normally brush your teeth with, ect...) but the vibe itself prolly wont do anything different for your head.

I actually already use vibrators with my left hand even though I'm right handed. I'm definitely not stupid, but I wouldn't say I'm gaining the intellect of a brain surgeon from the hand I use to hold vibrators with. I'm also already rather right brained, so I doubt I'd be stimulating it any more than I would be using vibrators left/right handed.

As for left handed people having better pleasures- dunno, but I'd imagine there's no real benefit to being left-handed. A hand is a hand, if you train it to do stuff then it'll do what you tell it to. Which one you use probably doesn't make you get anything extra out of sex.

It reminds me of a stress relief ball -- a very expensive one!

"I'm definitely not stupid, but I wouldn't say I'm gaining the intellect of a brain surgeon from the hand I use to hold vibrators with."

That was pretty much my sentiment on this toy.

I tried looking for a retail price on this, but did not come across one. I'm guessing since it's a LELO, it will retail in the $100-200 range. Did you find a price on these?

"As the first ever vibrator designed to make right-handed people smarter and more satisfied at the same time –DEXTRÜS will be available in four spontaneous colors from late April 2014 onwards at the market entry price of $299."

That's from the end of the article announcing this product on Lelo's site.

As for what I think about this...I know of no evidence that says people experience pleasure differently based on handedness causing them to feel or process pleasure in a different side of their brain! Taking the results of a self-reported study and not backing them up fully with empirical evidence makes their assumptions premature, reckless and based on a flimsy foundation of pseudoscience. I think it's a lot less expensive to just masturbate using your left hand, and see what happens, don't you think? Come on people, this is a joke! April Fools!

Thanks for posting this, Black Orchid, otherwise I would have missed it!

The supposed "Le Gauche Institute, Paris" that verified their results does not exist and isn't it funny that gauche means left in French? And Sinister College, Oxford doesn't exist either. And the study they linked to has to do with memory recall, not pleasure. Yeah, this is a gag. And just to really be obvious, they posted these "reviews":

"Praise for DEXTRÜS
Ian Kerner, Sex and Relationship Expert and author of NYTimes Bestseller She Comes First: The Thinking Man’s Guide to Pleasuring a Woman:
“My right-handed clients have said it for years; they feel left out. And that’s not right. Not right at all. When it comes to spontaneity and pleasure, no one should be left behind, so I’m very pleased that LELO has done the right thing by launching an item like DEXTRÜS.”
Gary Adroit, President, Coalition for Right-Appendaged People:
“With DEXTRÜS, LELO is standing up for rights’ rights to right wrongs subjected to the right-handed peoples of the world, to which I say; right on, LELO!”
Olef Thander, LELO’s Head of Right-Handed Research:
“On the one hand, we were looking at a massive segment of the population who just couldn’t enjoy our products as much as they should, and on the other hand, we wanted to design a product that right-handers would feel comfortable using in public. While I can count on one hand how many right-handed people I know – only a handful, really – I’ve got to say, it feels pretty good to lend them a hand.”

You did a lot more reading up on this than I did. I didn't read any of this stuff, I just watched the You Tube video. The "Gasm" one I knew was a joke, but this one got me.

Thanks for posting, Wicked Wahine, I guess this joke was on us.

Thanks, November! One of my majors in college was psychobiology (the biological basis of behavior), so I knew right off that this was bunk. But wow, they did a really good job on it and I think it's hilarious that they made such a production of this. I wonder if they "celebrate" April Fool's Day more there, or if they just took the opportunity to use someone's great idea to show their senses of humor?

Oh, weird april fools joke. Kinda sad- I think "the gasm" thing is hilarious (the little ikea drawings were wonderfully silly x3) but the dextrus doesn't seem nearly as funny imo. Plus all the things like the video and such weren't even posted april 1st, the video is like a few days before and in march.

I didn't know about this until today when I saw the thread, so I didn't know when it was started. That is a lot of effort to go to for something like this, but really odd not to do it on April 1st! How strange! But given what you've said, this now smacks of laughing at their consumers, trying to show them how gullible they are and it does affect how I see it. Was the Gasm thing released just on April 1st last year, I wonder? I swear, if there is anything real about this supposed item, they will have lost credibility with me and, I imagine, many people and they will certainly damage their brand.

I loved these and still think surreptitious had the best one! (Love that woman!) Read the comments, too for the back and forth between ImaGodiva and surreptitious-- very entertaining, too!

Thanks for linking to it, charmedtomeetyou! I forgot about the new people and how they wouldn't know about these funny "reviews"! I think surreptitious's "review" went over some people's heads because of the implied and not so obvious meanings behind it. In case someone didn't catch it, here it is and WARNING, SPOILER COMING ...................... ...................... ...................... ...................... ...................... ...................... ...................... ...................... ...................... ...................... ...................... ........

here's my comment from the thread:
"This is so damn funny, I cried! I hope people understand that you're referring to those boys who are on 4chan & stuff. They have no life & no one believes them when they say they have girlfriends. So, everyone jokes that their girlfriend is their hand, get it, now?

Anyway, my favorite is: "There is a very faint smell of crushed dreams and loneliness upon opening the package" I practically wet myself, it was so unexpected. I think this is a genius review! Brava!"

If you want a good laugh, read ImaGodiva's comments and surreptitious's replies to her!

Damn, this place was so much fun! We need to get it going again cos I sure do miss stuff like that!

I thought it was a joke too, I mean, a lot of sex toys have gimmicks though. The Revel Sonic? IGino? Considering it looks almost exactly like the Revel Sonic, it was a plausible idea to think this was real.

And as CinnamonNights said, this stuff wasn't even posted on April 1st, which indeed would have made it funny!

I was looking into it as a quality discreet vibe, not so I could "obtain the pleasure I was missing out on" as a right handed person; or use it at the office which I think was hilarious.

So when a fellow sex toy reviewer dubbed the Revel Sonic as the "Shit Orb“, I actually have been looking for something like this

Well now off to find the fake reviews!

Several people in this thread understood it was a joke from the start, especially since Lelo had a fake product last year too. I prefer the fake April Fools items on Thinkgeek.

True. I tried to hint that it was a gag, but I didn't want to just blurt it out at the beginning of the thread.

the Lelo article was amusing to read. I wasn't aware of Lelo having a fake product last year till I read Kitt Katt's post.
