Thanks to a reader on our bulletin board for posting a link to a very unusual patent on IBM's wondrous intellectual property site.

The abstract of the patent, for something called an Automated Masturbatory Device, says: "A variable speed motor powering a crankshaft driven sealed transducer producing pneumatically induced reciprocating motion of a receiver when a male organ is inserted. The present invention employs a hermetic system to prevent loss of synchronization. The receiver is designed with an inner liner compliant enough to accommodate a plurality of sizes and shapes of male penises. The present invention produces a stroke of approximately 3 inches at a frequency of up to 350 per minute."

So take a look at it, quick, before Big Blue's thought police take it down, so to speak. We think it's for real, but it isn't an IBM device...
