MyVibe: First Vibrator App Approved By Apple

There’s a new iPhone vibrator application on the market, but unlike its predecessors, this one is approved by Apple — and it’s FREE. MyVibe — probably the only x-rated app approved by Apple — was created in response to users’ desire for “’discreet’ vibrators, especially things that look like something else so that they can use it via travel, not worry about their kids finding them, etc.” Yeah, but this vibrator doesn’t just look like something else, it is something else — something one regularly puts next to her face. Isn’t that sort of a conflict of interests? Anyway, sexual heath expert Dr. Debby Herbenick gave it a test drive — check out her comments after the jump.

Here’s how it works: there’s an on/off button that looks like many computer on/offs so it’s easily recognizable. On the right side, there are up and down arrows to control your vibration – short, quick pulses (smaller #s) or longer, slower ones (higher #s, up to 100). [If your phone isn't vibrating at first, make sure your volume switch on the left of the iPhone is turned to vibrate.]

The intensity of the vibration MyPleasure could use for this app is obviously limited by the amount of vibration that the iPhone offers, so the orgasmic potential of the MyVibe app is similarly limited. However, orgasms – while fun – aren’t everything. Anticipation, teasing and seduction play a major role in many people’s sex lives (check out my fun new book, Because It Feels Good, for more tips on foreplay and enhancing desire/interest).

As such, why not turn on the app, hold the iPhone discreetly against your body while on the metro, in a cab or even at your desk as you exchange sultry IMs or Twitter DMs with your real life partner or dream partner? Having a little vibration can add excitement and tingles to your day (and your genitals).

So, let me get this straight: the “vibrator” is so weak that it’s more likely just to “tease” you than get you off? And then you’re gonna put it next to you face when you’re done? Um, I think I’ll pass. And if I see any of you “discreetly” holding your iPhone against your crotch on the subway, I’m going to point and laugh.
