Damn. You beat me to it :rofl:

This sounds incredible

“The show depicts a man who is impulsive and not always in control, who makes mistakes – like kids do, but crucially, Dillermand always makes it right. He takes responsibility for his actions. When a woman in the show tells him that he should keep his penis in his pants, for instance, he listens. Which is nice. He is accountable.”

The world has lost its mind.

But I’m still going to pitch an animated series about orgasm man. Maybe he can make a guest appearance on John Dillermand.

Though mushrooms can cause side effects like nausea and increased anxiety, for instance, they’re not thought to pose much risk of serious long-term harm, assuming you’re not injecting them.

Futurism reports:

In perhaps the most wince-inducing example of why your household items probably don’t need to be connected to the internet, we bring you the news that a hacker took control of internet-connected chastity cages and demanded a Bitcoin ransom before releasing their hostages

A chastity cage is, put simply, a cage for penises that’s a popular accessory within the BDSM community. And as Motherboard reports, the good people at the Chinese manufacturer Qiui decided to make a model called the Cellmate that’s locked and unlocked through an app

And then a hack once again underscored how the internet of things often suffers from horrible cybersecurity. “Your cock is mine now,” the hacker reportedly told one of the victims.

“You should be talking to my ex-wife about that, not me,” the victim replied.
