Three Tech-Savvy Panties for Futuristic Sexy Funtimes

Welcome to Underwear Week, a whole week dedicated to your favorite bum-hugging clothesthings. As we said many moons ago, we feel a lady is at her best when she’s not wearing pants. And while our last adventure around this neck of the woods took us only as far as boyshorts, this time around we’re exploring the vast and many-flavored land of underwear. From edible panties to hoopskirts and history, we’ve got you covered. Just like your underwear.

It’s time to tech your queer panties, because who doesn’t want panties you can control with a remote? Yes, y’all, I am talking about vibrating panties. Panties that vibrate. And considering my other writing here on Autostraddle, it’s not surprising to find out that I consider this the perfect merger of technology and pleasure. Here’s three pairs of panties similar to the ones we’ve recommended, the difference being that they buzz and you have to charge them every once in a while.

Babeland Remote Vibe Panty

The standard remote control panty. The ties at the sides mean this particular panty is highly adjustable (from 25″ to 65″ hips) and also that these panties are flirty and cute. The remote has a 16 foot range, meaning that there’s a lot of partnered fun and surprises to be had. The little pink vibrator (splash-proof) gets tucked into a pouch in the panties and then you’re ready to go. Babeland even suggests wearing them in public (hey, 16 feet, the possibilities are endless. Or at least endless up to 16 feet). These remote controlled panties can be on your bum for $49.

Club Vibe

The Club Vibe is made for music – just plug in any iPhone, iPod or MP3 player and let the music turn into vibrations. Or let ambient sound control what’s happening to the vibrator (I think that’s why they call it the Club Vibe – you can go out to a club and the bass you’re dancing to will work like a charm in your panties). The louder the music, the greater the intensity. Gives a whole new meaning to feel the music. This product is made by OhMiBod, a company with a history of merging tech, songs and sex. This is very similar in construction to the Babeland panty in that the bullet vibe slips into a little pouch. The cool thing about this one in particular is that it’s a bullet, so you could totally use it with any other toy that takes a bullet vibrator. A lot of the reviewers on the Good Vibrations page also said they use this vibrating panty during loud movies, which I never would have thought to do. You can put music in your panties for $49.

Similar look: This is a thong! So it’s quite similar to the Tanga style featured in Thongs 101.

These are not really functional panties. These are panties made to be worn during penetrative sex, but I still figured they would be relevant to your interests. Basically this is a clit vibrator made to be worn during partnered sex, but it doesn’t get inserted like the We-Vibe does. This makes it perfect if you want a couples vibrator but aren’t into the penetration that the We-Vibe offers.  It’s totally hands free once you get it going, but it doesn’t have a remote like the others. Still, it’s technology plus panties and really quite sexy – I think it would be nice for strap-on sex and/or fisting. They’ve got sizes from Small to XXL, any of which can be yours for $79.00.
