Project Description

What is The VDOM?

The VDOM is two parts. The first is a prosthetic penis that can change from a flaccid to erect state and the second is the revolutionary mobile application that accompanies the prosthetic. The VDOM was created to bring added sexual wellness and pleasure to persons with certain anatomical restrictions.
 

How does The VDOM work?

The VDOM is two-components that work as one unit; the prosthetic piece and the mobile-app that accompanies the prosthetic. With a quick swipe or touch, the mobile app can bring the prosthetic piece from flaccid to erect in less than 6 seconds. The mobile app also includes sharing features such as:

  • The ability to add partners who can in-turn control the prosthetic
  • Send "Ready to Play" notifications to a partner or multiple partners
  • Control blackout time where the device will be in a non-controllable state - because after all, no one wants an accidental boner while giving their best presentation at work, right?
  • Battery status indicator to inform the primary user of charge amount and charging state

Take-a-Peek at our short explainer videos.

 


Why we created The VDOM

A satisfying romantic relationship is important for both partners’ quality of life and health status. - The Journal of Social and Personal Relationships^.

Intimacy and sex are very important components of a healthy lifestyle. Even with surges in sex tech innovation, the sex-tech industry fails to address the challenges faced by many of those within marginalized communities. The VDOM is an answer to those challenges.

The VDOM was created to bring greater comfort, pleasure, and confidence to people who experience certain anatomical restrictions during intimacy. Lesbians, paraplegics, persons experiencing erectile dysfunction, and many more who enjoy sex are unable to simply because they are forced to use devices that are designed for orgasm alone. The VDOM is designed for entire lifestyles.
 

...But you don't have to take our word for it

"As a transman, the ability to use a device that can go from flaccid to erect in a matter of seconds can be life changing for my dysphoria. Although I plan to have bottom surgery in the future, the VDOM would be a significant place holder as both an everyday packer and in the bedroom. I believe the VDOM will be the next big thing in the LGBTQIA community and I’m excited to be a part of that." - Alex 

"I think it’s important to have new advanced technology when it comes to LGBTQ pleasure! I am femme presenting and advocate for sex positivity for all facets under the queer umbrella!" - Bianca 

"100% believe in using technology to bring people closer to their authentic self. I love my straps, but this type of upgrade is very interesting and promising. Sharing the VDOM lifestyle is something I want to be a part of." - Marie

"This is about to cost so much money but we're kinda wanting it!" - Abigail

"This sounds like a gift I want to get for my person that’s really a gift for me!" - Cree 

"Because this is a young studs dream! Now that I'm older something I thought about as a kid is actually here and in still able to keep the Benefits!!! It's like lesbian Christmas! Plus this is something FOR US BY US!!! I want to support and help it become Uber successful." - Iman 

"Can't Wait!" - Kim, Teetrice, and Almazi

"I love to see new creations especially within the LGBTQ community." - Jae           

"I love the concept and think it is going to help so many people. I have a couple of platforms and social circles that would absolutely love this device and I want everyone to know about it." - Ashlee 

"I think the product is something I’ll love and some next century type shit (excuse my French). I’m a dominant female and a people person. Let me help you guys get some sales" - Jasmine 

"I need this NOW!" Lashonda, Jamika

"I will pay top dollar for this" - Adrienne 

"I'm so ready to ditch the strap" - Charletta 

"Im Soooooooo excited about this!" - Nakia
 

Why we're raising money

Although most sex tech innovations are designed for women, female-led sex tech companies have a much harder time getting off the ground. The overwhelming prevalence of males in the tech industry coupled with the stigmas attached to lesbian sex, transmen, and those who suffer from gender dysphoria or body dysmorphia make it even more difficult. Your contribution will help us secure a solid initial launch of The VDOM and show investors that there is a need and a desire for The VDOM.

 

Where is the money going?

So far in our venture, The VDOM's primary funding has been bootstrapped. These funds have been dedicated to the research and development of The VDOM. The money raised in this crowdfunding campaign will go toward expenses incurred when meeting regulation testing requirements, marketing, and manufacturing.

The Campaign FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Does The VDOM offer different skin tone options?

  • Yes, The VDOM will come in three skin tone colors initially (colors will be announced at a later time). 

2. Will The VDOM offer different size options? 

  • Yes, The VDOM will come in three different sizes, starting with 4", 6", and 8" (*note that these sizes reflect when the device is fully erect).

4. How does the mobile app work with The VDOM?

  • The VDOM is two-components that work as one unit; the prosthetic piece and the revolutionary mobile-app that controls it. With a quick swipe or touch, the mobile-app can bring the prosthetic piece from flaccid to erect in less than 6 seconds.
  • In addition to controlling the prosthetic component, the mobile-app includes sharing features such as:
    • The ability to add partners who can in-turn control the prosthetic
    • Send "Ready to Play" notifications to a partner or multiple partners
    • Control blackout time for where the device will be in a non-controllable state - because after all, no one wants an accidental boner while giving their best presentation at work, right?
    • Battery status indicator to inform the primary user of charge amount and charging state
