@Sleeper: This sounds like the personalized version of Woody Allen's orgasmatron.

Can you think of an appropriate Woody Allen quote? The one that comes to my mind is sadly not relevant to thsi conversation, but it always makes me laugh: "I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying."

@BrainiacV: Are you thinking of Larry Niven's Known Space series...

I bet Brainiac I, II, III, and IV would have got this -- only one of the best science fiction tales of all time -- "Steel Beach" by John Varley.


It also has one of the most attention-getting opening lines of any sci-fi book:

"In five years, the penis  will  be  obsolete,"  said  the salesman."

 

Here's another interesting quote I just found on the web:

"Some Krogan believe that testicle transplants can improve their virility, counteract the genophage. It doesn't work, but that doesn't stop them from buying. Ten thousand credits each, that makes forty thousand for a full set... Someone's making a killing out there..."
— Garrus, Mass Effect

It gertainly gives one pause for thought...

Are you thinking of Larry Niven's Known Space series where characters had a device called a 'Tasp' that could "make someone's day"? Mentioned in "Ringworld"

"Ultra tingle" is not ringing my chimes. :-)

@BrainiacV: ...give a new meaning to "Reach out and touch someone."

It reminds me of "Ultra-Tingle" (can you name that book?)

You know, give a new meaning to "Reach out and touch someone."

As the song Do you want to date my avatar? states, "there's no disease in cyberspace."

Make those long distance relationships work. :-)

@BrainiacV: I've been telling my friend for years there is a market for Teledildonics.

Now there's a university course that would be over-subscribed. Also, if you took a Master's degree, you woudl be a "Master of Teledildonics" which sort of rolls of fthe tongue (no pun intended :-)

There are actually teledildonics. There were some recent announcements that were pretty amusing, but I'm not sure this site is the best place to showcase them.

@Crusty: With regard to the title of this column, I feat that if you mentioned these undergarments to Mrs Crusty, the "warm tingle" you felt would not be caused by your underwear (although it could be coming from the same general vicinity :-)
