性爱玩具快和电视机一样普遍了,却被排除在电子展之外?

当地时间1月8日,2019年国际消费类电子产品展览会Consumer Electronics Show(CES)在美国拉斯维加斯拉开帷幕。作为世界最大的消费类电子产品顶级展会和全球未来科技的最大秀场,各国企业都将自己最前沿、最尖端的科技新品拿来同台竞技。

尽管男性通常是这类展会的主导者,但女性对尖端科技、新潮电子产品的兴趣持续增涨的势头也不容小觑。

可是,今年展会刚一开幕,就传来让女性消费者颇为不爽的消息。原因是,一款获得
CES创新大奖的女性性玩具被迫从CES上撤展。

那这款性玩具有啥特别之处呢?

The CTA revoked an innovation award from Lora DiCarlo, the company behind a hands-free device that uses biomimicry and robotics to help women achieve a blended orgasm by simultaneously simulating the G-spot and the clitoris. Called Osé, formerly known as Vela, the device uses micro-robotic technology to mimic the sensation of a human mouth, tongue and fingers in order to produce a blended orgasm for women.

CES的主办方CTA(美国消费技术协会Consumer Technology Association)撤销了Lora DiCarlo的创新奖。该公司设计的免提自慰器运用仿生学和机器人原理,通过同时刺激敏感部位,帮助女性达到性高潮。这款被称为Osé,原名叫Vela的性玩具运用微机器人技术,模仿人的嘴巴、舌头、和手指,为女性带来欲仙欲死的高潮快感。

Lora DiCarlo said it had been invited to display its robotic Ose vibrator at CES, after winning an innovation award.

Lora DiCarlo公司称,在其获得创新奖后,它曾被邀请参加CES并展出这款自慰器。

CES organiser the Consumer Technology Association, which granted the award, said it had included the device by mistake and could withdraw any immoral or obscene entry at any time.

而CES的主办方兼创新奖颁发者美国消费技术协会称,他们由于失误而将这个产品纳入该奖项的评选,并有权随时撤销任何不道德或淫秽的入选产品。

Lora DiCarlo chief executive Lora Haddock said the CES and CTA had a history of gender bias.


为此,Lora DiCarlo公司的首席执行官Lora Haddock说CES和CTA长期抱有性别歧视。

In a statement to The Next Web, the CTA said: "The product does not fit into any of our existing product categories and should not have been accepted.

在回复美国科技博客The Next Web的一则声明中,美国消费技术协会称“这个产品不适合我们现有的任何产品类别,它本不应被接受。”

"We have apologised to the company for our mistake."

“我们已经就我们的错误向该公司致歉。”

But, in a statement on the Lora DiCarlo website, Ms Haddock cites several examples of other female-oriented products included in the award category the vibrator was in.

而在Lora DiCarlo公司的网站声明中,Haddock引用了数个以女性为主导的产品例子,它们原本和自慰器同属一个类别。

Ms Haddock said there was a double-standard at CES when it came to sexual health products targeted at men versus women.

此外,Haddock还指出CES在针对男性和女性的性健康产品上采用双重标准。

"Men's sexuality is allowed to be explicit, with a literal sex robot in the shape of an unrealistically proportioned woman and VR porn in point of pride along the aisle," she said.

“运用虚拟的体态匀称的女性机器人和虚拟现实技术的色情片,男性的性欲被允许在大庭广众之下明确地表达,”她说道。

The products she is referring to are the RealDoll sex robot Harmony, which debuted at last year's event, and a room showcasing virtual reality porn off the main conference in 2017.

她说提到的这个产品是去年在CES上首秀的性爱机器人Harmony,以及在2017CES主要会议上展示的虚拟性爱电影播放间。

The VR porn room was reportedly visited more than 1,000 times in its first day of opening.

据报道,这个虚拟现实性爱电影房的访问人次在展会开幕首日超过了1000人次。

This year, an unofficial shuttle bus is taking people from the conference site to a legal brothel for a sex-video experience controlled by an Amazon Echo speaker.

对于她公司的产品不适合现有的任何参展产品类别的论调,Haddock反驳道:

"If we didn’t fit their policy, how in the world did our application even get past the first round of vetting by CTA staff, let alone receive high marks across the board from their expert judges?" Haddock wrote.

“假如我们一开始就不符合他们的政策,为何我们的申请甚至能通过美国消费技术协会员工第一轮的审核,更不用说还获得了他们专家评审团的高票认可?”Haddock在公开信中写道。

Haddock countered in her open letter that their product is "the subject of eight pending patents and counting for robotics, biomimicry, and engineering feats." She also wrote, "You never know how technology can be used, [and] the future of healthcare might well be in the patent for a sex toy. But if CES and CTA are so intent on keeping women and Sex Tech out, we'll never find out."

Haddock还在她的公开信中反驳说他们的产品拥有“八项待审批的专利,涉及机器人学,仿生学和工程学。”她还写道:“你永远不会知道技术将会被如何运用,以及未来的健康保健可能会运用性玩具中的专利技术。假如CES和美国消费技术协会执意将女性和性技术排除在外,我们将永远不知道将来会怎样。”

而中国性学专家李银河在采访中谈论她的最新随笔《我们都是宇宙中的微尘》时也表示,她认为到了2050年性爱机器人将和电视机一样普遍。

连中国的性学家都如此预言性爱机器人的未来前景,那美国的CES还对女性性玩具持有如此保守的态度和执拗的偏见,是不是会错失一大片商机呢?
