Personal sex devices for women have been around for more than 100 years and, though they may not appear to have changed much, the technology embedded in them certainly has evolved. The taboo surrounding the use of women's sexual stimulation “toys” has all but disappeared - discussion about products (and even their use) appears regularly on TV: in sitcoms, movies and documentaries. But where are all the toys for men? Apart from old-style blow-up dolls – the attendee at many a bucks’ party and the butt of many jokes – or the latest sex robot in Roxxxy, what else exists? The world's largest pornographic Video On Demand supplier, Adult Entertainment Broadcast Network (AEBN) has addressed this shortfall with the RealTouch – “the world’s first virtual sex device for men”.
