Embarrassing Interactions

A CHI 2015 Workshop

Author: Sebastian Deterding

Anonymous pledges allowed

Brian Sloan is a fapping technology entrepreneur who now successfully crowdfunded not one but two male masturbation devices: Autoblow 2: A Robotic Oral Sex Simulator for Men, and 3fap: 3 Textured Orifices With Suction For Men. Apart from opening interesting gender and culture questions about the acceptability of discussing male versus female masturbation supports in different countries, these campaigns make you wonder who is willing to be publicly listed and known as a crowd founder of such devices. The answer? While Kickstarter currently doesn’t support anonymous pledging, on Indiegogo, you can choose to not have your name publicly displayed, and it just so happens that both campaigns — ran on Indiegogo.
