Scots to pioneer remote sex via glowing ring

Distant partners test nookie-by-light-pen

Boost IT visibility and business value

A Scottish company trialling "intimate communication over a distance" is seeking couples interested in drawing lines of light on each other's bodies rather than the more-traditional teledildonics hardware.

The technology comes from Forres-based Distance Labs, who are looking for three couples in which one partner is based near Edinburgh, and the other more than 250km away, to see if drawing lines of light on each other's bodies can replicate some of the ambiance involved in relationships.

The drawing is done with a ring, which glows red, and so can be easily detected by an overhead camera. Special bedroom electronics project lines drawn by the distant partner, as well as those traced out locally, enabling the couple to "communicate through the language of touch as expressed on the canvas of the human body".

Scotland might seem a strange place for such research, but oil workers are often stuck out at sea for long spells, and skilled workers are frequently forced to travel the world while their wives bring up the young 'uns at home. "More flexible" relationships have long been the preferred way of dealing with the problem, but those often end badly.

Having said that, Highlanders are not always typical in their attitude to women: until recently a wife was expected to carry her husband out to his fishing boat on her shoulders, so his boots wouldn't get wet - something modern wives seem to feel isn't within their remit.

Distance Labs have helpfully provided a video, just in case you're having trouble imaging how sex with a light-pens works:

If you fancy having a go at this yourself, and fit the criteria, then do drop the company a line, but don't feel compelled to let us know how you get on.
