iPads are sexy, but would you have sex with one? Fleshlight sure hopes so. The company behind the gross silicon sleeves that aim to put a simulated vagina in the palm of your hand has just revealed the LaunchPAD, and surprise! It’s an iPad case you can pork.
Why, oh why, would anyone want to bang his or her iPad? According to Fleshlight, the device is about “enabling the user to enjoy the full Fleshlight experience while enjoying content or communicating live with a friend via applications like FaceTime or Skype.”
In other words, it’s a sort of analog teledildonic device. The idea is that while you’re looking at someone’s face over Skype video chat, you can simultaneously be having sex with the back of your iPad, but you could also use it to, say, masturbate while watching iPad porn. Hilariously, Fleshlight calls this a tablet-penis interface.
Here’s a laughably safe-for-work ad showing the LaunchPAD in use:
As you might expect, the LaunchPAD is essentially just an iPad case with a snap-on Fleshlight. But according to Fleshlight marketing manager Daniel Pacheco, the LaunchPAD is addressing a sizable opportunity in the iPad case market.
“Tablet devices have allowed for porn consumption to become ‘mobile’ and more convenient for viewers to watch their favorite content,” Pacheco told the Daily Dot. “Coupled with our Fleshlight LaunchPAD, they’re set for a pleasurable time!”
Surprisingly, buying a Fleshlight iPad case isn’t actually that expensive — just $25. But the Fleshlight itself does not appear to be included, and let’s face it: This isn’t an iPad case you’re going to want to leave the house with, even without a masturbation toy dangling from the back.
