Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to be a human sex toy? Rich Lee can help.

The 32-year-old Utah businessman/biohacker is on a quest to completely change the nature of sex by, as he puts it, “[turning] your boyfriend into a vibrator.”

Lee is the inventor of the Lovertron9000, a device designed to be implanted underneath the male pubic bone. Essentially, it’s a small battery-operated motor that, when switched on, sends vibrations down the penis. A textured version is also available, with bumps and strategic ridges “for your partner’s pleasure.”

“People use toys in bed,” Lee told The Week in an interview. “I don’t see how this will be any different. I see it as an enhancement.”

Lee first came up with the idea for the Lovetron9000 back in 2011.

“I’m going to implant a vibrating subdermal implant just above my meat straw,” he wrote on an online forum for biohackers.

Four years later, his vision has finally become a reality. Sort of.

So far, Lee has only tested the device externally. He says he’s still working on perfecting it for surgical implantation. Part of the challenge is finding the right bioproof silicone coating that will protect the device’s internal components from mixing with any bodily fluids, which he admits, would be a nightmare.

“Worst case scenario,” he said, “it rots off my penis and then I have to get a prosthetic penis and God help me then.”

But not everyone thinks Lee’s invention is a good idea.

“The body will only allow very few types of foreign substances into it without outright rejecting it (such as silicone or titanium),” Dr. Anthony Youn, a Michigan-based plastic surgeon, told The Week. “If this device is made out of a substance that causes the body to react, the body will literally push it out, causing major scarring and deformity.”

Lee doesn’t agree. He thinks the Lovertron9000 is going to be revolutionary.

“This sounds bizarre, because [the Lovetron9000 is] a strange implant product,” he said, “but there are a lot of implants that are gonna be coming out for consumers, and the wearable market is gonna be transitioning into the implant market.”

“I absolutely see this as the future.”
