“Just like you can ask Google to give you a recipe or tell you what the weather’s like, Pleasure Finder will tell users all they need to know about sex, health and pleasure – and some extra guidance when it comes to ensuring users and their partners both find pleasure in the bedroom.”
”Hey Google, how do I improve my sex life?”
Pleasure Finder – the first ever sexual education Google Assistant
MysteryVibe goes beyond the vibrator and introduces Pleasure Finder, world’s first Google Assistant action dedicated to helping people improve their sex lives, is now live for users to install on their phones, tablets and smart devices. The action helps users find out more about the health benefits of pleasure and open up about their sexual health – without fear of mockery or judgement.
Firing up the action is as easy as telling Google you want to talk to Pleasure Finder or structuring questions directly by prefacing them with “Ask Pleasure Finder.” It works for both smart speakers and displays, though the only benefit you get on the latter is the ability to visually read back responses.
It’s the first time a voice assistant has been able to offer advice around sexual health, sexual education and performance, and has been specifically designed to answer questions people want to ask about sexual health but are sometimes too afraid to ask their partner or a healthcare professional. The action was created with the help of Clare Bedford, a psychosexual and relationship therapist who worked with MysteryVibe’s Chief Medical Officer and world renowned urologist, Prof. Dasgupta, to ensure the action offered meaningful advice.
Just like you can ask Google to give you a recipe or tell you what the weather’s like, Pleasure Finder will tell users all they need to know about sex, health and pleasure – and some extra guidance when it comes to ensuring users and their partners both find pleasure in the bedroom.
And it couldn’t be simpler to use: users can just say to “Ok Google, let me speak to Pleasure Finder” and go from there. The action will outline all the different forms of advice and help it can offer, ensuring everyone can get the sexual wellness advice they need.
The action offers to “improve your sex life” with tips and answers to the bedroom’s biggest questions, like, “am I having enough sex?” and, “what are the health benefits of vibratory stimulation?” As such questions clarify, the app does include some “mature” content, but it’s far from pornographic. Questions are answered in an outright clinical way, without any slang, using precise medical terminology, and with no (intended) humor. That makes sense, as the action’s answers were written with the help of a both urologist and a psychosexual/relationship therapist.
In fact, the developers claim the Pleasure Finder action was “rejected outright by another leading firm,” probably implying Amazon didn’t want to deal with big scary sex questions in Alexa. (Google reached out to us following our original coverage to state that after review, the action does not violate its policies.)
“Having the Pleasure Finder accepted by Google is an absolute triumph. Giving access to anyone who wants or needs a shame-free sexual education is what this campaign is all about. We want to help people open up when it comes to talking about sexual health, so we’re hoping that the Pleasure Finder will be able to kick-start a conversation and people talking about sex and pleasure and rediscovering the benefits they offer” said Prof. Dasgupta, CMO of MysteryVibe and urologist.
“That’s the philosophy upon which MysteryVibe built their business – helping to set people free and give them a judgement-free space where they can genuinely open up about sexual health and wellbeing. After all, sex isn’t a taboo – it’s time to act like it.” Read more articles here
Tumblr and why the porn-friendly era of the internet is over?
Matt Mullenweg, the chief executive of Tumblr parent company Automattic said that the “casually porn-friendly era of the early internet is currently impossible” as he looked to explain why Tumblr and other sites will never go back to freely available adult content.
After widespread and inaccurate speculation that Tumblr would lift its ban on adult content, Mullenweg posted a long explanation of why Tumblr will never go back to the old days. The internet has fundamentally change its stance on pornography, the head of Tumblr has said.
Tumblr was once known for lax attitudes towards pornography that helped make it one of the most popular sites on the internet. But in 2018, new owner Verizon banned such content, introducing restrictive rules that kept it off the platform.
Why is returning to that era impossible?
For now, it’s largely because of intermediaries that play a massive role in how people access the web. Payment processors have long been leery of adult content, and they’ve stepped up enforcement in recent years, in part because of concerns about child abuse and non-consensual pornography. Apple’s iOS App Store has been staunchly opposed to it since launch. And without those two pieces of infrastructure, running a for-profit site is incredibly difficult. “If Apple permanently banned Tumblr from the App Store, we’d probably have to shut the service down,” Mullenweg noted. Some non-profit sites that do allow things like explicit artwork have remained persistently web-only despite years of requests for apps.
Meanwhile, porn companies have their own stack of payment processing services, but they’re typically far more expensive — something that nearly got adult performers banned from the subscription platform OnlyFans last year.
The issue is compounded by new rules about age verification and anti-sex work laws like FOSTA-SESTA. Some of these laws are meant to combat unambiguously harmful phenomena like non-consensual pornography, but they also add substantial legal oversight.
Why can both Reddit and Twitter, fairly unusually for modern social networks, allow a lot of porn?
“Ask Apple, because I don’t know,” says Mullenweg. He speculates that Twitter and Reddit are both too big to ban, although Apple has forced moderation changes even for giant services like Facebook.
The overall upshot:
“If you wanted to start an adult social network in 2022, you’d need to be web-only on iOS and side-load on Android, take payment in crypto, have a way to convert crypto to fiat for business operations without being blocked, do a ton of work in age and identity verification and compliance so you don’t go to jail, protect all of that identity information so you don’t dox your users, and make a ton of money.”
Could TikTok turn into the new Only Fans?
TikTok is once again updating its livestreaming features, and this time the biggest improvements affect the people who can’t watch. For starters, the upgrade now lets TikTok Live users host adult-only broadcasts. If a stream is likely to include lots of colorful language or tackle traumatic subjects, you can make sure the audience is mature enough to handle it. The option will be available in the “coming weeks.” And no, it’s not an officially sanctioned alternative to OnlyFans — TikTok’s policies still forbid sexually explicit content.
However, people are speculating that TikTok could soon turn into an OnlyFans alternative after the platform announced the new “adults only” feature for live broadcasting.
TikTok rose to huge popularity during the Covid-19 pandemic and associated lockdowns across the world.
While its user base is mainly comprised of Gen Z, it appears to the app is hoping to draw more of an adult audience after announcing it’s raising the age of those who can live broadcast to adults and is introducing an adult-only viewer option.
According to the Chinese-owned platform, the new feature is being brought in to protect its younger users and could be used to stream comedy routines with strong language or broadcast videos with more complex or “difficult” subject matter.
TikTok announced: “In the coming weeks, we plan to introduce a new way for creators to choose if they’d prefer to only reach an adult audience in their LIVE.
“For instance, perhaps a comedy routine is better suited for people over age 18. Or, a host may plan to talk about a difficult life experience and they would feel more comfortable knowing the conversation is limited to adults.
“We want our community to make the most of the opportunities LIVE can bring without compromising on safety.”
