After kicking sexual wellness company Lora DiCarlo out of the show in 2019 AFTER it gave her massager an innovation award, the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada is allowing “innovative” sex toys at the show on a “one-year trial basis” this year under the health and wellness section, which really just means those rules can be changed again next year.
Lora DiCarlo returned to CES show this year with Osé, a “robotic massager for blended orgasms”. 10 other sex technology startups, including Satsifyer, Crave, and Morari, also displayed a variety of pleasurable high-tech devices and apps. One exhibitor, Satisfyer, gave out free products every hour and had potential customers lined up around their booth.
But some of the event’s exhibitors weren’t allowed to demonstrate all of of their products, including Lovense, who’s products can be controlled via Bluetooth using the Lovense mobile app. Lovense wasn’t permitted to display its VR headsets and software at the show, which are important parts of the sex toy.
