A sex toy company has been left red-faced when it emerged the erotic
accessories were secretly recording audio files of customers orgasms.

Users of the Lovense remote app, which worked with the company’s
remote-controlled vibrators found that audio recordings were being
stashed in a folder on their Android phones.

“The file was a FULL audio recording 6 minutes long of the last time I
had used the app to control my SO’s remote control vibrator,” wrote one
disgruntled owner in a Reddit post exposing the flaw.

The user, known as tydoctor, had given the app permission to use the mic
and camera in order for the
couple to exchange voice clips through the
in-app chat feature.

The post led other users to chip in with the admission they had experienced something similar.

Eventually, a Lovense representative responded and called the issue a
“bug” that affected Android users of the app but didn’t apply to iOS
users. They have since apologised.
