LONDON — A U.K.-based duo has debuted Pulse, a male sex toy that has been dubbed a “guybrator,” the Wired.co.uk reported.

Unlike its female-geared equivalent, Pulse employs distinct technology called Penile Vibratory Stimulation (PVS), which uses piston-movement to generate high-amplitude oscillations, rather than the typical low-amplitude variety of most personal massagers.

Co-creator Adam Lewis said he was inadvertently tipped off about PVS when he was doing online research for his product and discovered medical reports about the health benefits of oscillation treatment for people with spinal cord injuries.

Essentially, vibrations directed at the frenulum area of the penis can facilitate ejaculation — a perk for disabled men looking to impregnate their partners. Lewis decided to incorporate the concept, but improve the design to make it sexy and drastically alter the purpose.

“We see Pulse as more of a lifestyle product that was aspirational," Lewis said. "It looks more like a speaker than a masturbation aid."

While Wired reporter Olivia Solon conceded that Pulse doesn’t look overtly sexual, she had her own distinct impression: “The device itself can only be described as looking like a Darth Vader helmet for your, er, helmet,” she wrote. “It is black in color and features the PulsePlate on the base, with two ‘wings’ that curve upwards around the shaft.”

According to Lewis, he considers the first generation of Pulse the “iPhone 1” and has much imagined future variety, including a version that's 100 percent waterproof and similar products using high-amplitude oscillations for women and couples.

For more information about Pulse, visit Lewis’ company website www.HotOctopuss.com. The product can be purchased on the site for £69.
