There's Candle in the Wind, and there's Blowin' in the Wind. Some DJ thinks it'll be cool to mash the two and produce an entirely new mesmerising composition.

Now substitute the former with a virtual dildo and the latter with a masturbator sleeve which mimics the feel of a blowjob. What happens next will blow your... never mind. What you need to know is how, very soon in the future, sexual pleasure is set to be redefined.

Before getting a lowdown on the future of pleasure, take a look at what teledildonics is all about:

Blowjobs of the future

You're in a long-distance relationship and miss that much needed physical intimacy. You could Skype it, but it doesn't really have the same effect as actual contact. Or, you're interested in the services of the many good cam women of the online world. Again, actual contact is missing from that option as well. Enter CamSoda.

Adult entertainment site CamSoda has launched BlowCast. A web service that allows adult performers to record themselves performing oral sex on dildos. That footage is stored in their database and sold to customers for the fellatio feels.

The dildos, to be precise the Kiiroo Pearl, will be manufactured by Dutch teledildonics startup Kiiroo. The 'customers' will need to buy the Kiiroo Onyx, an interactive masturbator sleeve to complete the experience.

The Kiiroo Pearl, essentially a vibrating dildo, collects sensory data as the model uses the device, and stores this data. Once a user selects a particular adult model, the Kiiroo Onyx receives the data from the cam girl's dildo and replicates it in the sleeve. Since it's paired with the video feed, it simulates the experience of getting a blow job from that particular model. The company has already started labelling the BlowCast database as the "iTunes of Blowjobs."

At present, the BlowCast hosts blowjobs from 50 different female models who work with CamSoda. The cost for having someone go down on you virtually? $250 dollars for the sleeve, and you can access all the stored blowjobs online free.

But pleasure doesn't last forever, free pleasure even less so. The freebies last for a month and after that you pay a one-time fee of $1 each.

"This does not feel like real sex with someone, but it's the best thing that's out there yet," CamSoda president Daron Lundeen told Motherboard. "It transfers what's occurring, so you feel exactly what the girls are doing on the device."

However, as with everything digital, there are always concerns about privacy and security issues. There have in fact been instances in the past where existing teledildonics have been shown as quite susceptible to third party access.

In this case, both devices are hosted through the Kiiroo network. "On the CamSoda side we do a lot to protect our users, but the device does use Kiiroo's network so we're trusting them to manage their devices," said Lundeen to Motherboard. "But you can't not offer a new technology to people because you're afraid there might be some hacker out there."

Blowjobs of the future

On the face of it, clearly the whole concept suffers from a male gaze. The Pearl user, invariably is pegged to be a female and the Onyx user - male, gets all the pleasure.

The Pearl can only sense and transmit sexual stimulus - making the whole thing a one-sided experience. In a strictly male-female equation, the female has little enjoyment to take out of the experience.

Although the company pointed out that the tech can be applied for Onyx/Onyx combinations too (essentially making it an act of mutual masturbation between two men), there can't be a Pearl/Pearl pairing.

Clearly, the male-only trajectory for technology, just like in video games and elsewhere, has spilled over in this aspect as well. This needs to change, and just how the person providing the service is likely to be financially compensated, also needs to be made clear.

The technology is definitely far from achieving a reliable degree of consumer practicability (there's a great review here), but the idea is something most people will be sold on.
