The makers of the We-Vibe, a line of vibrators that can be paired with an app for remote-controlled use, have reached a $3.75 million class action settlement with users following allegations that the company was collecting data on when and how the sex toy was used.

Standard Innovations, the Canadian manufacturer of the We-Vibe, does not admit any wrongdoing in the settlement finalized Monday.

  1. The internet of idiots, I suppose.

    Disclaimer: I have a We-Vibe, a non-internet model. It was originally developed by an ex-Nortel engineer. As a sex toy it isn’t nearly as good as the Sqweel. I could ask for my money back, but it was a gift 🙂
