2,400 Men In 46 Countries Set Crowdfunding Record For Autoblow AI

CHICAGO, IL—A total of 2,400 men pledged more than $315,000 in an Indiegogo campaign to fund the Autoblow A.I., making the toy the highest crowdfunded male sex toy in history. The device provides users with 10 oral sex experiences using a combination of 16 stroking techniques, programmed using knowledge gained from the first ever machine learning study of blowjob mechanics.

In order to create the Autoblow A.I.’s movements, inventor Brian Sloan’s team watched and incorporated data from 8,000 minutes of videos of oral sex performed upon men before handing a terabyte of tagged blowjob images over to a team of Ph.D. artificial intelligence scientists. The scientists applied several types of machine learning algorithms to the dataset to discover the 16 most common movements of oral sex givers’ mouths on receivers’ penises. The full study is published here and animated examples of the machine’s movements are here and here.

The Autoblow A.I. combines electronics with patent-pending robotics to grip and pull the penis in human-like ways. The machine’s microcontroller works with an I.R. beam sensor and magnetic field sensors to control a gripper that manipulates a sleeve along any of 250 micro-locations along the 5-inch long stroking plane. The result? Provided he is using lubricant, the male user is expected to experience the same gliding and sliding sensation that occurs during oral sex performed by a human-being using his or her mouth, hand, and saliva.

The crowdfunding campaign launched on October 17, 2018 with a goal of raising $50,000, and concluded two months later, having raised $315,000, or 626% of its initial goal.

Inventor Brian Sloan said, “Many people (thinking it's strange) have asked me why I would devote years of my life to creating a device that gives oral sex to men. Now that Autoblow A.I. has been pre-purchased by more than 2,400 men in 46 countries ,the reason should be crystal clear: because this is what men want. The monotony of manual masturbation will no longer be a burden to the men who choose my device. Although masturbation is something we do by ourselves, I believe we can use artificial intelligence to make the experience infinitely more fulfilling.”

The Autoblow A.I. campaign appeared in media worldwide including on Vice, Playboy, The Sun, El Espanol, Worldstar Hip Hop, GQ, a Lad Bible post with 142,000 shares.
