Sex Tech Patent Index
Welcome to the Sex Tech Patent IndeXXX™ bulletin.  The currently-available editions feature a compilation of information relating U.S. utility patents that issued in 2015 and 2016 that appear to fall under the general umbrella of “Sex Tech.”* The bulletin includes patents on sex toys, sex furniture, condoms, and other technology meant to enhance sexual pleasure. Medical devices are excluded, although sometimes, it’s a fine line as to where sex toys end and medical devices begin. VR and AR technologies are included if they incorporate sex devices.

Currently, the bulletin lists a total of 47 U.S. utility patents issued in 2016 for Sex Tech devices, and 53 in 2015, working out to about an 11% drop. The bulletin reveals that some big names received patents over the last couple of years including LELO Inc.**, Vibease Pte. Ltd.**, and Crave Innovations, Inc.**, among others.

We begun with the first half of 2016, and have been working our way forward – as well as backward – from there.  Over time, the bulletin will be expanded to incorporate design patents, patent application publications (applications that have published, but may not necessarily have issued yet), and European patents.  The content is evolving, and results will be reported on a quarterly basis moving forward. Be sure to join our mailing list to receive future editions, as they become available, right in your email inbox!
