Interview with xSync
Hi Alan, you’ve got an interesting product here. Tell us more about it.
Hi there SimplySxy, I’m enthused to tell you more! And thank you so much for having us! xSync is a wireless technology that hyper-synchronizes your favorite vibrator to precise sensory cues in adult videos and all other media. When one watches porn by themselves, the typical “self pleasure” routine can get a bit, well…mechanical, and rehearsed over time. What I mean by this is, it can gradually lapse into a mundane routine lacking in true sexual fulfillment.
But xSync changes the game. Instead of you fiddling with buttons, xSync lets you enjoy the experience while allowing you to deeply immerse yourself directly in the peaks and valleys of the hottest scenes. It really is about as close as you can get to experiencing your favorite porn scene fall right into your lap, all without having to leave your own room. (Or office. Or car. Etc.)
So how does that immersion feel?
According to our beta testers—little short of mind-blowing! In fact, let me share a little anecdote about one of our first test users, we’ll call her ‘Sarah’.
Sarah was nestled cozily in her room while checking out our first demo flick, accompanied by her favorite vibrator. Scene 1: a blow job. Now, I’ve been told by numerous times that women often “skip” or fast forward blowjob scenes so they can get to the “good parts”, so to speak. Keep in mind, it’s not that they don’t like giving blowjobs, it’s just that watching them on video simply fails to turn them on like real life sex.
But here’s the plot twist for Sarah when the blow job scene started…
Her jaw literally dropped to the floor. The sensations hit her—in real time, and she found herself planted in the exact moment, enjoying every single detail of every single second. The afternoon she relayed this to me, I knew in that single moment that we’d built something that was not only sensational and realistic, but could change the way porn was viewed and experienced for everyone.
And one more interesting detail about xSync. It can control multiple vibrators at the same time, as long as they are near the wireless signal. That’s it! So now you and a friend, or even a group, can put on a sexy adult flick and simultaneously enjoy the delicious details. Talk about a party! Or you can go on a solo adventure and play with multiple toys at once. Either way it’s a brand new experience that’s never been available before.
Needless to say, the range of experiences one can have with xSync are vast and varied. And we know that when our customers get to experience what it can do for them sexually, they aren’t going to go back to the old traditional way of watching porn with their vibrators buzzing monotonously ever again.
Does it work with all porn?
Yes, it sure can! But one thing I’d like to point out is that we don’t host any of our own videos. Instead, xSync actually powers the syncing technology behind existing websites. Many sites are already fully compatible with xSync, so it’s a piece of cake for us to add new and exciting websites as our service continues to grow.
A very common misconception is that we sync merely the sound in the videos. Sure, this may work well in some situations, but when it comes to syncing with adult videos and porn, it’s limiting and frankly—not a complete picture of the scene.
Instead, we have an awesomely elite team of engineers who run our proprietary software to analyze specific on-screen actions and sync them to the precise intensities and patterns of the vibrator. Then it’s in our library. Users can enjoy it all immediately.
We’re also thrilled when we receive requests from our users. In fact, our entire library is built around our users’ favorite adult videos. If any user wants to try xSync with their favorite adult video, we welcome them to hit up www.xsync.com and we’ll get them set up on our pilot program. That’s it!
By the way, it’s crucial that I point out that ALL of the videos we support are sex positive. I think that’s pretty self-explanatory. My fiancé, team, and I, are outspoken advocates of the sex positive movement, and it doesn’t matter if you’re gay, straight, lesbian, BDSM, hardcore, or a little in between. We plan on having you covered on all levels and tastes!
Now tell us, what inspired you to create xSync?
For a long time in the making, I wanted to be able to re-create the natural spontaneity of sexual stimulation in an intimate encounter. A few years back I started to closely examine all the sex toys available in the market and, honestly, there wasn’t much that really filled that “missing gap” that I was looking for. I finally began my research, and several months later I finished the now patent-pending design. And the results couldn’t have been any better!
Shortly thereafter, I met my fiancée, Kathleen, and since then, she and I have been jointly helming xSync. While I handle the technical aspects, Kathleen has this uncanny, intuitive ability to connect with people. She’s had that gift all her life, and it’s like nothing I’ve seen before. She lovingly gave xSync a character and identity that resonates with people. It truly has been an intellectual labor of love and fun for us…and I’d like to quip that we’ve experienced first-hand just how easy it can add to a couple’s intimate life.
Our #1 inspiration for xSync has been to help women, couples, and our friends in the LGBT community to explore their own sexuality by completely immersing themselves into the erotic fantasies from their favorite videos. These videos can range from your run-of-the-mill sex flick, to the mainstream 50 Shades of Grey. We truly feel we’re only getting started, and that the future applications for xSync to help and entertain people will only continue to grow.
We’re seeing a ton of new and innovative toys come out on the market, from the We-Vibe Couples Vibrator, the Revel Body Sonic Vibrator and now the xSync. It’s like Sex is going high tech. As a toy designer, do you think that it’s just human nature to find new ways to get off?
Yes. Absolutely. I do think that it’s human nature to always be seeking something new and exciting. People love to be entertained. People love to feel good. People love to explore, to be sexual, to push the boundaries and have mind-numbing orgasms. Why wouldn’t they? It’s exciting, it’s liberating…and it’s great for the mind and body!
As for the sex toy market, sure, there are always new sex tech products coming out and we’re thrilled to see this. We aren’t actually toy designers, we’re instead filling in the gap between technology and toys. To do this we’ve created xO—our wireless remote for LELO vibrators. It’s a cool little piece of technology that jumpstarts your existing sex toys.
In short, we are a sex-positive technology team vividly syncing up your favorite videos.
Thanks Alan, before we close off, tell us, how do you define “sexy”?
Oh, that’s a fantastic question! A part of me wonders if the word “sexy” could even be defined. Or should it? “Sexy” is such a subjective word, and over analysis potentially subtracts from that “je ne sais quoi” that keeps it secretive and alluring.
But if you ask me personally what you think my definition of sexy is, I think it comes down to being truly authentic, being confident in yourself (and even your body and sexuality), and your own unique, magnetic spark. We can’t fake being sexy. It doesn’t work that way. It has to be truly felt. When you feel it at the core of your being, it radiates around you, and other people sense it.
When you take the time to explore your sexuality, you unlock what it means for you to be sexy.
It’s been a pleasure. Thank you for having us, SimplySxy.
