Patents by Category:

1. Massage for the genitals

 

U.S. Patent No. 10,051,328

Title: System and method for composing function programming for adult toy operation in synchronization with video playback

Abstract: A method for programming a tactile stimulation device includes displaying a video playback scrubber showing a video in conjunction with a timeline and providing navigation controls for playing, advancing, and regressing the display of the video. A control panel for selecting an operational mode of the tactile stimulation device is displayed concurrently with the video playback scrubber. Commands are received either via the displayed control panel or by keyboard, each of the commands selects the operational mode and an associated period of time. Each of the commands is graphically represented on the displayed timeline according to the selected periods of time. The commands are saved, along with the associated selected periods of time, either as an independent file or annotated within the video file.

U.S. Patent No. 10,022,292

Title: Massager communication device, system, and method

Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide a massager device, system, and method. A massager is configured to communicate (directly or indirectly) a user feedback message to a target in response to a determination that an event has occurred. The massager may be a sexual aid. User feedback messages may be generated based on various pre-sets and/or user selections established to determine a message medium type, content for inclusion in the user feedback message, the target, the event, and other customizations. The content of the user feedback messages may be generated according to a content selection method, such as random, user-customized, pre-sets, categorical, or based on usage parameters, such as biometric, massager settings, and temporal data.

3. For inserting the genitals therein, e.g. vibrating rings for males or breast stimulating devices

 

U.S. Patent No. 10,052,256

Title: Vibration ring

Abstract: A vibration ring includes a vibration module and a latex ring. The vibration module is provided with at least a battery, a circuit board and a vibration motor that are connected electrically in a spherical shell, along with a switch that is exposed out of the shell. The latex ring includes an annular wearing part that is processed with latex, and a spherical vibration part that encloses the shell of the vibration module. The spherical vibration part and the enclosed vibration module act onto a female’s clitoris without pressing on other parts of the body, so as to increase the comfortableness in wearing the vibration ring and form a better exciting effect in vibration.

U.S. Patent No. 10,045,906

Title: Systems and methods for haptic stimulation

Abstract: See Section 2.

***

U.S. Patent No. 10,028,882

Title: Sexual stimulation device containing a ride control ring

Abstract: A sexual stimulation device which contains a vibrating member or vertical bullet which is attached at opposite ends to two elastic rings which may be of similar size or different sizes. The top ring is designed to have the index finger inserted inside the ring. The bottom ring is designed to have a male’s penis and testicles fit inside of the ring. The device is battery operated and is primarily intended to be used for external stimulation which includes a vertical bullet (also referred to as a vibration motor) having a flexible bottom ring that attaches around a male sexual organ and can be positioned by pulling the top ring. The vertical bullet vibrates at different speeds and pulses to create different stimulations against sexual organs.

4. For clitoral stimulation

U.S. Patent No. 10,022,293

Title: Devices and methods for sexual wellness

Abstract: Some adult devices are ostensibly marketed to improve female sexual experience female by offering exercises to address relaxed vaginal muscles from birth, age, surgery etc. and for reducing incontinence. However, such devices suffer from variable placement by the user both in terms of orientation and penetrative depth such that the “results” are not reproducible and captured data used to provide feedback to the user and/or providing visual/audible prompts is flawed. Accordingly, it would be beneficial to provide a device with reproducible placement and data for enhancing the usability/benefit of the exercise regimen. It would be further beneficial for the device to either provide this exercise regime as part of a wider assessment of sexual wellness or as part of a sexual stimulation activity thereby reducing the focus on “exercise” to derive the benefits of improved pelvic muscle control.

U.S. Patent No. 10,076,463

Title: Vibrating electromechanical device for female stimulation

Abstract: This disclosure relates to devices and method for producing stimulation to the clitoris of a user. In certain aspects, the vibrator device includes a vibrator mechanism and a body enclosing the vibrator mechanism. The body includes a first side member and a second side member. During use, the first side member and second side member are configured to engage in an interference fit with labia such that the body is in contact with a clitoris without obstructing the vaginal opening.

U.S. Patent No. 10,028,883

Title: Sexual pleasure attachment for vibration device and method

Abstract: A sexual attachment device is provided with a sleeve being removably installable over a source of vibration. The sleeve includes a top end, a bottom end, opening located at the bottom end, and a cavity located at least partially within the sleeve accessible via the opening. The source of vibration can be inserted at least partially into the cavity. Vibration generated by the source of vibration is transmittable via the sleeve. The source of vibration may be an electric toothbrush. A ring is includable at the top end with a ring opening. A method is provided for providing stimulation using the sexual attachment device.

U.S. Patent No. 10,070,986

Title: Testicular retraction restraints and methods

Abstract: Described are restraints, and methods of using and making the restraints, for restraining a man’s testicular retraction response to sexual stimulation. It is believed that the restraints and methods of use thereby tend to slow or postpone the onset of the man’s climax, with the potential to prolong the pleasure of the man and/or his sexual partner. More particularly, clip restraints and loop restraints are described and illustrated. The clip restraints are configured to grip a portion of the scrotum and to present deflection or obstruction features above the reposed positions of each of the man’s testicles, configured to deflect or obstruct the movement of the testicles toward a retracted position associated with the onset of the man’s sexual climax. Advantageously, clips according to the invention may fold to a narrow thickness, convenient for carrying in a pocket or wallet. Clip members of the restraints may be attracted by magnets, biased by springs, or manually adjusted to a stable gripping position. The loop restraints comprise left-hand and right-hand loops configured to extend around a portion of the scrotum and to define a restraint opening, confining at least a restrained portion of the respective testicle to one side of the restrained opening to limit retraction of the respective testicle through the opening in a direction toward the respective vas deferens

The packet is filled with lubricant and the integrity of the packet is breached prior to intercourse, releasing the lubricant inside the body lumen over a period of time. Once the packet is substantially depleted, a void created by the depleted packet can be used by the receptacle.
