New sex toy app tells women how many calories they burn while err.. well you know!
AN app which monitors how many calories you burn while using a sex toy has been launched.
Sex toy brand Zalo USA has introduced the interactive feature, which they claim is the first of its kind.
Zalo says the ‘Fitbit’ style app syncs with three of its toys, allowing women to track how many calories they’re burning while having fun.
The company says their algorithm is based on a study which suggested masturbating burns around three calories a minute.
The stats Zalo quote suggests sex, including foreplay and climax, burn around 3.6 calories a minute.
The brand even conducted its own tests on 218 women, who found they burned through six calories a minute.
The Chicago-based company has its own app, Zalo Remote, which is available from the Apple and Google Play stores, which links to their toys via Bluetooth.
Their website says: “Innovative Bluetooth connectivity allows you to link your intimate toy to your smartphone with the ZALO app.
“Use it as a personal remote control, or have your partner take over all of your sensations with the touch of a finger on their smartphone screen.”
The app tracks the duration of use, as well as the setting on the vibrator, to monitor how many calories women have used up during their session
Zalo confirmed the higher the setting, the more calories women will burn, as their heart rate will be higher.
After crunching the numbers, the brand claim that if a woman masturbated three times a week for just 10 minutes, they’d burn 90 calories.
But it’s not just calories which you can track – but also how loud women are while using their products.
The ‘happiness recorder’ function monitors the decibels of ‘sexual vocalization’, and women can earn points depending on how much noise they make, with more points for higher volumes.
The calories and sound data is then calculated to give women a final ‘score’, which Zalo has called the ‘Z-index’, so you can see how intense each session has been.
The app – which can be controlled remotely by a third party – senses when the vibrations have stopped, and automatically closes down.
Zalo has a range of sex toy collections, including Versailles, Lolita, Sweet Magic and their Legend series, ranging from £71.87 ($8.99) to £174.89 ($219).
