Fleshlight, KIIROO Join Forces, Set to Unveil 1st-Ever Interactive Masturbator at XBIZ 360
LOS ANGELES – Fleshlight and KIIROO have joined forces to create the KIIROO Onyx – the first fully interactive male masturbator with a patented Fleshlight sleeve inside, which will make its world premiere at January’s XBIZ 360 conference series.
Described as “the most realistic Cyberdildonic experience the world has ever felt,” the companies say the KIIROO Onyx marks just the beginning of the partnership between KIIROO and Fleshlight. According to the companies, the industry of Cyberdildonics is still in its infancy, and has plenty room for growth.
Fleshlight COO Brian Shubin says that the groundbreaking 2015 XBIZ 360 conference series, which is set to bring together the movers and shakers from all sectors of the adult industry at the trendy Andaz Hotel, located on Hollywood’s famed Sunset Strip, from Jan. 14-16, is the ideal event to premiere Fleshlight and KIIROO’s latest innovation.
"I feel strongly that interactive pleasure product will impact our industry's consumer in a large manner,” Shubin said. “Thank you to the good folks at XBIZ 360 for allowing us to introduce our products and vision to the industry in a large fashion."
According to Fleshlight, men are now more open to the idea of using a masturbation aid, and KIIROO and Fleshlight are prepared to meet this new demand. Aside from new users, there are more than 36,000 current users already on the Fleshlight Forums. The companies speculate that men are likely to be amenable to further sexual experiences online, which KIIROO can provide exclusively.
"It is quite simple to see the interactivity wave our industry is riding,” Shubin said. “Consumers expect technology to allow them to interact with others in real time, this bleeds over into pleasure products as well. KIIROO's technology will now allow consumers not only to communicate in real time but to pass the sense of touch through pleasure products in real time. We are happy to be partnering with KIIROO with this new product launch, we expect it will be the beginning of the future of pleasure products.”
KIIROO is working with advanced technology including haptics and telepresence, while Fleshlight has international experience, superior materials and an ever-growing fanbase.
“Our goal has never been to make the best male masturbator, or the best female vibrator,” KIIROO CEO Toon Timmermans said. “There are some amazing products already on the market, like Fleshlight. What KIIROO provides is the best experience when you’re not physically together. We give you a way to touch someone over the Internet. It’s intimacy, it’s sex in real-time, in a way that you’ve never seen it before. By joining forces with Fleshlight, we’ll be able to make our product even more realistic, and available all over the world.”
Fleshlight, which is the presenting sponsor of the highly anticipated 2015 XBIZ Awards, set for Jan. 15 at L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles, is also serving as Diamond Sponsor of the XBIZ 360 conference series and is among the exclusive XBIZ Retreat participating vendors.
XBIZ 360 will offer an unprecedented lineup of special guest speakers and events dedicated to exploring the future of digital adult entertainment, movie production, pleasure products and retail.
For a limited time, XBIZ 360 attendees qualify for an exclusive group rate of only $199 per night at the Andaz Hotel.
