Sex Toy Company Facing Lawsuit Over Secret Monitoring Of Customers’ Masturbation

Ayo, technology has gone WAY too far according to this Chicago-Tribune story

A Chicago-area woman is suing the maker of We-Vibe, claiming the smartphone-enabled personal massager secretly transmitted “highly intimate and sensitive data” of her usage to the company in real time.

According to USAToday, a Chicago woman, along with thousands of others, are looking for some serious restitution from a sex toy company who has been sneakily monitoring their forays into freaky fapping

The lawsuit, filed this month in a Chicago federal court, seeks class-action status for “tens of thousands” of We-Vibe users, whose data allegedly was collected without consent by Standard Innovation, the device’s Canadian manufacturer, in violation of privacy and consumer fraud laws.

“This is one of the more incredible invasions of privacy we’ve ever dealt with,” said Eve-Lynn Rapp, an attorney with Edelson, the Chicago law firm that filed the lawsuit.

The woman, identified only by the initials N.P., purchased a We-Vibe Rave from a local retailer for $130 in May, according to the lawsuit. Soon after the purchase, she downloaded the companion We-Connect app.

She used the device “on several occasions” since the purchase, but was never informed that each time she turned on the app, the company was monitoring her activities as well, collecting “personally identifiable” information, according to the lawsuit.

Standard Innovation spokesperson Denny Alexander had this to say about the

“There’s been no allegation that any of our customers’ data has been compromised,” Alexander said. “However, given the intimate nature of our products, the privacy and security of our customers’ data is of utmost importance to our company. Accordingly, we take concerns about customer privacy and our data practices seriously.”
