Vibease Is The Sauciest Singapore Startup You Need To Know

The Singapore startup scene is known for its plethora of products and services that make things efficient and improves lives. Well Vibease is not your regular startup, that’s for sure, and it’ll definitely make your mid-week slump a lot more interesting.

What is Vibease? It’s a vibrator.

Or rather, a smart vibrator. It’s wearable tech that can be operated via the Vibease app (available on Google Play and the App Store) on your smartphone. The Singapore-based Vibease has been around since 2012, and made headlines when they introduced their technology to assist with long-distance dating. In one of the company’s promotional videos, co-founder and CEO Dema Tio said that the idea started when he was in Boston and his wife was in Singapore. “Although we were connected through Skype, we were missing our intimate moment, he added.

Since then, they’ve levelled up with Vibease Fantasy, an app which allows users to sync erotica with the Vibease massager (via Bluetooth), and Vibease Intimate, a long distance remote control massager that allows your partner to control the vibrations from anywhere in the world. And the progress is monetary too: Vibease has made US$1.5 million in sales alone since it launched. This year, they’re on their way to making a virtual boyfriend a reality. Well, almost.

Vibease Fantasy has allowed users to escape into some erotica fantasy, with the catalogue spanning genres from the supernatural (vampires, of course) to stories based more on reality. It’s exactly what fictional erotica is, but in audio form — and with a side of cheesy.

And at the recent Tech In Asia Tokyo 2015, Vibease returned to fascinate again. A finalist in the Arena competition, Dema explained how a ‘virtual boyfriend’ is one that syncs up with a smart vibrator to pleasure users — and you can interact with your ‘lover’ by asking it to go slower. With more people choosing to take on the independent and solo route when it comes to love and romance, Vibease is pretty intuitive, I guess.

Dema also brought up the issue of sexual wellness in Singapore, saying that sex toys have always had the stigma of being associated with porn and kink. But what he is trying to do with Vibease is to make mainstream the use of sex toys and enrich the sex lives of its users. Noble job.

This won’t be the only new feature to come from this exciting startup, so it’s best you keep tabs on them. Plus, they’re also open for jobs as well.
