This reminds of a time I waited until the last night a paper was due and still couldn't think of a subject and then I slept on it and woke up early to write it, but still couldn't think of an idea and the just really crapped out the most nothing idea at the last second because I had to have something or else I'd get a zero.

This tweet sums up the best parts.


Here's the page.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lovesync/lovesync-kickstart-your-love-life/description

You're in love, but you don't always know when your partner is in the mood for romance... and sometimes you get shot down. So, you stop trying as often.
Even if occasional rejection doesn't bother you, you may be worried of leaving your partner feeling guilty that their libido isn't always matched up to yours.
Other times, you'd be game, but you let the moment pass because you're not quite motivated enough to be the one who makes the first move.
With LoveSync there's no rejection, no guilt and no missed opportunities. Take the Luck out of Getting Lucky and make your move with confidence!
It's been up for less than half a day and is at $2,764 of it's $7,500.

So maybe people are giving ironically or ... fuck me, this will actually make sex easier for couples. "Anonymously tap the button."

Can you imagine the type of soulless sex people who would buy this shit must have?

EDIT

"anonymously tapping your button" lmfao. Who else could have clicked the fuck button?

This reminds me of It's Always Sunny, where Dennis makes sure he gets consent from his partner, via text, before he has sex with them. That way, he has evidence that they texted him agreeing to the sex.

It reminds me of one of those beepers when you're waiting for a table at a busy restaurant.... except for sex.

I'd like to know what happens if one of the buttons just stops working after a couple has started to rely on this product. Do they just never have sex again assuming the other person isn't into it anymore?

As someone who listens to a lot of Esther Perel podcasts, the scenario whereby 'one partner gives up asking for intimacy due to experiencing frequent rejection' is actually quite common.

As a relationship tool to assist these kinds of couples, it actually sounds like a pretty neat product that could help people.

Patent pending "LoveSync technology"... lmao.

Two buttons are linked wirelessly. If both buttons are pressed within a short time period, they will light up.

Wow! These guys must be living in 3019 to have come up with such advanced technology!

This is true but the solution isn't "just keep asking and hope things change"

ANONYMOUSLY tap the button? How anonymous can it be? It's wired, so it's like... you can't even market this to polyamorous people who might, depending on their arrangements, actually potentially have uses for this.

I think it's probably more beneficial in the long run just to, like... go to couples' therapy. If you need this button to solve a problem, the problem is actually bad enough the button won't help.

No. People miss the point. And it goes both ways. It’s a timing thing. Especially in long term relationships. I don’t need this but the idea isn’t bad. It’s about trying to sync up in a distracted busy life.

I’m sure there is people out there this will help. As goofy as it sounds. It’s sort of also brilliant

I guess? I've been married over ten years and I feel like the reality is more like if something is a priority you find time for it, and if you truly *want* it you find time for it, not just when your partner pushes a button and then the impetus is on you to accept or reject, I don't see how it would help with feelings of rejection.

I'm suprised there isn't an app for this.
I was about to say... instead of a $44 set of devices (which apparently will retail close to $100) which you would have to practice your ninja skills to pull out the button and tap it while your SO is next to you, an app, which you could just load up and tap while you are surfing on your phone before bed would make a lot more sense.
no extra cost.
can be done while you are surfing on your phone so not obvious.
and doesn't need to be plugged in, and can even be done from anywhere in the house.

"Did they really text that?"
"Their phones did"

This is actually not a terrible idea. Anything that helps people communicate and have more intimacy with their partner is a net good in my book.

Yeah, my thoughts.

And yeah, an app makes more sense.

A button is nice and all, but it should've been a device you have to each insert a key into and turn it on, like on a submarine.

I found the perfect Vday gift for Bronsonlee. He can inform his right hand that he is ready for loving.
Damn.

I want that testimonial if this works for a couple.

If communication in your relationship is so bad that you need this, chances are it'll at best buy them a few extra weeks.

This isn't a solution to a problem, it's just another way to avoid the real issues.

I don’t think it’s a question of need. All relationships are different, and I think making assumptions about other people’s relationship is rude and judgey, quite frankly.

This is silly, sure. I would never use it. But if it helps people, great.

Watched the video pitch.
Made by a married couple, 15 years. Apparently she's a marriage counselor.

I guess they mean well, but when they start breaking it down to science, that's where I check out.

Gonna be honest - most of these consent apps/devices aren't actually for people that care about consent, but more for creepy people that want to have data showing consent was given at one point.
