U.S. Patent No. 9,901,509

Title: Erotic stimulator device

Abstract: An erotic stimulator device comprising a mat including an inner surface and an outer surface, a hook and loop fastening system wherein a hook portion of the system is secured to one mat surface and a loop portion of the system is secured to the opposite mat surface and a sleeve having an open end and a closed end wherein the sleeve is placed on the inner surface of the mat with the open end of the sleeve extending outside the perimeter of the sleeve, the mat is rolled up into a cylindrical shape with the sleeve inside and the hook and loop fastening system is engaged to maintain the shape of the mat and the open end of the sleeve is extended from the inner surface to the outer surface of the mat.

***

U.S. Patent No. 9,861,553

Title: Transverse-mode-resonant stimulation device

Abstract: Various embodiments described herein provide a mechanism for transducing transverse vibrational energy into an elastic body of a sexual stimulation device by directly driving the transverse modes of vibration of the elastic body. Additionally, by using an actuator that transduces a force that is proportional to the input current or voltage, the vibration may be driven with any arbitrary waveform.

U.S. Patent No. 9,889,039

Title: Penile constriction device

Abstract: A penile constriction device has an elongated body with a coil-shaped portion and first and second end portions. In an operational mode, the end portions are biased into mutually overlapping positions and are longitudinally spaced apart. The coil-shaped portion is adapted to wrap closely around a penis. The coil-shaped portion of the elongated body includes an elongated elastic spring member. A head element is removably mounted to the first end portion of the elongated. The head element can be adapted to provide vibrations and light.

***

U.S. Patent No. 9,889,064

Title: Sexual stimulation device with an oscillator feature

Abstract: Disclosed is a sexual stimulation device that includes a phallus shaped member having a handle opposite a stimulation end. The handle includes a control button for operating the device. The control button is connected to a power source that can activate an oscillating motor, which is attached to a motor head having a motor head attachment and a silicone embedded connector. The motor head oscillates, thereby moving the motor head attachment and the silicone embedded connector therewith. The silicone embedded connector is aligned with a stimulation point at the stimulation end of the device such that when the device is activated, the stimulation point can oscillate. In use, the stimulation end can be inserted into a vagina to contact the g-spot or near the wall of the vagina to stimulate a user.

Title: Intercourse assistance device

Abstract: An intercourse assistance device for reducing the length of a penis that enters a vagina. The intercourse assistance device has a support body with a front side and a rear side. The support body is made of resistantly-rigid material. The device includes a region of deformably-soft material monolithically positioned centrally within the support body. The deformably-soft material is adapted to deform when in contact with the penis. The device also includes a reflexively-closable opening cut out from the region of reflexively-deformable material. The opening is adapted to removably receive the penis.

U.S. Patent No. 9,855,186

Title: Devices and methods for promoting female sexual wellness and satisfaction

Abstract: Devices, systems, and methods for promoting female sexual wellness and function. The devices, systems, and methods encourage clitoral engorgement using suction over the clitoris combined with vibratory stimulation. In some embodiments, a device is capable of operation in an automatic attachment (autoattach) mode, in which detecting attachment of the device to user tissue (e.g. through detection of a positive pressure in a tissue-contacting chamber) automatically triggers starting a suction pump to secure the device in place. Suction settings such as a target negative pressure may be determined according to a dynamically-evaluated quality of a seal established between the device and user tissue. The quality of the seal may be determined by identifying drops in the absolute value of negative pressure that are not readily compensated for by the suction pump.

  10. Penis erection devices

U.S. Patent No. 9,925,085

Title: Method and apparatus for penis enlargement

Abstract: A penis lengthening device comprises a traction chamber with tapered sidewalls configured to secure the penis within the chamber by forming a partial vacuum therein. A flexible air seal covers the upper portion of the traction chamber and extends over the penis. As the chamber is evacuated, the air seal tightens around the penis, creating an air seal to retain the vacuum within the chamber. Tensile force is transmitted through the chamber to the penis of the user. Alternative “light traction” embodiments utilize a condom-like device configured to attach to an elastic band, or to suspend weights therefrom. Larger tensile forces are applied for shorter periods of a few minutes up to an hour using the traction chamber embodiment, and smaller forces of 1-2 pounds are applied for longer periods of several hours using a light-traction embodiment. Alternate between the two methods throughout the day enhances its effectiveness.
