Company Blames Eavesdropping Sex Toy On ‘Minor Bug’

24503004315_94fb07d7e3_zA high-tech sex toy company in Hong Kong has some explaining to do after a customer caught one its vibrators recording human sounds on its own while the gadget was in use. The Lovense wireless remote-controlled vibrator is meant for long-distance couples to use with a cell phone app. But then a Reddit poster made a discovery: the vibrator was recording and saving sounds without being directed to do so. Others soon responded to the Reddit message with similar experiences.

“The full audio file— discovered as tempSoundPlay.3gp — lasted six minutes and was stored in the app’s local folder, noted a startled tydoctor,” reports HuffPo. While the app has access to the phone’s microphone and camera, it’s not supposed to constantly record users’ sexy times without their permission. A Lovense spokesperson assured anxious users that the recording was caused by a “minor bug,” saying, “rest assured, no information or data is sent to our servers.” Let’s hope so—We-Vibe was recently ordered to pay out $3.15 million to customers for tracking their sexual activity without their knowledge.
