Would You Use A Vibrator That Was A USB Drive? Would You Use a USB Drive That Was A Vibrator?

Questions! Questions That Need Answering

The inherent problem with vibrators that double as other objects is that they actually have to double as the other objects. Ideally they also function well for both of their intended purposes (although we’ll give things like the lipstick vibe a pass). Case in point: Ti Chang’s Duet, which is a multispeed vibrator that doubles as an 8GB USB drive.

Naturally, the Duet recharges using a USB port as well, just like your iPod.

Purely personally, the only kink (hah) in the functionality of the Duet is that in order to properly use it as a USB drive (chuck it in a bag, keep important things on it, pull it out on short notice), I’d have to wash it after every use (not strictly necessary for external vibrators), because I’d be far too bashful to pull it out dirty. Fortunately the whole thing is waterproof, but not every bathroom is private and let’s just avoid the inevitable roommate question about why you’re taking your $80 USB drive to the bathroom with you.

But I’m willing (interested, even!) to listen to people with differing opinions. Just make sure you use that leather case, or that silicone is going to find every bit of lint, dust, and crud at the bottom of whatever pocket or bag you toss it in.
