Baby Spas Are All The Rage! At Least In Australia

(PCM) We are curious to see whether or not the latest Australian spa trend will pick up over here in the U.S., as it is definitely a bit unique. The life of a newborn baby can be a fairly relaxing one already, but the new Baby Spa Perth wants to make it even more relaxing for newborns.

They are offering a variety of spa service for newborn babies ages six days to six months old. The services include infant massages and various hydrotherapy treatments. The hydrotherapy consists of placing the baby in a warm bath for up to 30 minutes using a neck flotation device adorably referred to as a “Bubby”.

We are sure that the spa has met all the safety protocols to stay operational, however something about the “Bubby” attached to the baby’s necks doesn’t appear all that safe to us! However, new parents are loving the spa idea and the babies themselves for the most part appear to be having a great time.

According to the Baby Spa Perth website, “One of the initial benefits you will observe is that your baby will be able to move around freely in warm water, which is impossible to do on land at a very young age due to gravity and constant constraints from bassinets, swaddles, clothing and pushchairs. Secondly, as your baby moves against the resistance of the water, their musculature and skeletal strengthens as the spine unfolds. Hydrostatic pressure of water on your baby’s body will result in the deepening of his/her breathing. This pressure also stimulates their circulatory system.”

Well, if they say so! A spa package at Baby Spa Perth will set you back about $85 and lasts for about 45 minutes.

The World’s First ‘Smart Condom’ Has Arrived!

(PCM) We find ourselves forever writing about the ways in which technology continues to advance in leaps and bounds each and every year and it leaves us to ponder just what in the world will they come up with next. Well, friends, we have now seen it all! A British company called i.Con has invented the world’s first smart condom that works much the same as a fitness tracking app except for your penis.

A man places on the i.Con ring on the base of his penis which then measures various attributes such as speed, duration of sessions, penis girth, and more. It even has the ability to compare your sexual ability with other men all over the world. While the i.Con smart condom is still currently in beta-testing at this time, we have learned that there will be an associated app for the product where all of your data will be stored and the unit can be recharged for additional use.

It should be noted that the i.Con condom ring is not an actual condom. It is a smart ring that can be used in conjunction with any condom brand of your choosing. The device itself is reusable. It should also be noted that according to the i.Con FAQ section of their website that all user data is kept anonymous. They go on to say, “users will have the option to share their recent data with friends, or, indeed the world. You will be able to anonymously access stats that you can compare with i.Con users worldwide.”

The i.Con condom ring is currently only available in the UK, however the company does plan for a worldwide release sometime in the coming year. Do you think that technology has gone to far? Does this product further promote unrealistic comparisons between ourselves and others? We could definitely see it having the potential to do so!

People Are Freezing Their Genitals With Wacky New Spa Treatment

(PCM) It seems that freezing your genitals as a way to both increase ones sex drive and improve appearance is actually a thing! The new “Love Mist” spa treatment offered at Manchesters Ainscow Spa does just that, by blasting a person’s genital region with  -160 degrees of liquid nitrogen. The liquid nitrogen is filtered and turned into a vapor during the procedure which takes about 30 minutes and costs about $70.

The spa claims, “When the sub-zero temperature covers the skin, the sudden drop in heat stimulates the temperature receptors. It can then increase a persons overall sex drive.” During this time the brain also sends messages to the body to begin constricting the blood vessels in that particular area which increases blood flow and releases endorphins which lead to the feeling of a natural high. Also, when skin is frozen the brain also sends out signals to the body to begin repairing the damaged tissue in the region.  The spa goes on to say, “Along with the instant endorphin level energy boost and natural high, generates a tighter, youthful, clear and vibrant genital skin appearance through boosting collagen.”

That whole damaged tissue to the genital region sounds like absolute torture to us, however others are swearing by the benefits of the controversial treatment. It could all be a psychological effect, as Forbes pointed out, “There has been no scientific research backing the procedure.”

Would you ever try a “Love Mist” treatment? We will definitely be sitting this one out and sticking with the candy and flowers to help get us in the mood!

Man Invents Odd Product To Assist Menstruating Women

(PCM) Daniel Dopps, a chiropractor from Wichita, Kansas, believes he has all the answers to assist menstruating women with his new product called “Mensez“. However, so far, women do not appear to be very impressed!

The “Mensez” product acts as a “vagina glue” of sorts that seals up a woman’s labia and comes “unglued” when she urinates. Dopps claims that the product, which is shaped like a lipstick applicator, is all natural and made with various amino acids and oil. His sales pitch for the item is even more ridiculous than it already sounds:

“Have you ever woke up with your lips stuck together? It didn’t hurt and it was kinda fun. All you had to do was to wet your lips from the inside with saliva and they became unstuck. This is the principle behind Mensez. Mensez is a natural combination of amino acids and oil in a lipstick applicator that is applied to the lips downunder during the period. It causes them to stick together, strong enough to prevent leakage, that is until the user urinates. The urine instantly unsticks the labia and allows everything to wash out into the toilet.”

Almost immediately women began firing back at Dopps on the internet with a ton of concerns regarding the safety of this product. Many had legitimate questions about whether or not the product was sanitary and if it carried any risk of infection.

Dopps claims it will be “thoroughly tested and improved”, however he did appear to become a bit agitated by all the backlash that “Mensez” was receiving online. In fact, the Facebook page for the product has since been removed. Dopps posted the following message:

The “Mensez” product is just now being introduced to the public and really does not appear to be off to a great start. It is definitely a real thing and Dopps filed a patent for the product in January of 2017. Something tells us that we will not be seeing “Mensez” on store shelves anytime soon though!

New Tostitos Bag Knows When Your Drunk And Will Call You An Uber

(PCM) Technology has grown in leaps and bounds over the years and continues grow even more each and every day. That is why it is not too very surprising that the Frito-Lay’s company has created a bag of Tostitos that cares about your personal safety and can literally let you know when you are too drunk to drive and call you an Uber to arrive home safely.

Frito-Lays has partnered up with both Uber and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and created the “Party Safe” bag of Tostitos that has the ability to detect traces of alcohol on your breath. If the bag senses that there is too much alcohol on your breath it will flash red and display a don’t drink and drive message. If the bag does not detect alcohol on your breath it will flash green letting you know that you are sober enough to drive home.

But, wait, there’s more! If the bag flashes red with the don’t drink and drive message, you will receive a $10 Uber discount code. When you touch your smartphone to the bag it will then automatically call an Uber for you to pick you up from your location and get you home safe and sound.

The special Tostitos “Party Safe” bags are being offered for a limited time only and available in conjunction with Super Bowl Sunday in a effort to prevent drinking and driving during the Big Game. It has not yet been revealed where the bags will be available for purchase and if the company has any plans to make them a permanent fixture for their brand in the future.

Oprah Is On Her Way To A Fridge Near You!

(PCM) The Kraft Heinz food company has some exciting news with the announcement of their upcoming partnership with celebrity Oprah Winfrey. The joint venture will be called “Mealtime Stories” and together Kraft Heinz and Oprah will be creating a new line of packaged, refrigerated meals. Kraft Heinz says the mission is to create a new line of food that will make real, nutritious products more accessible to everyone.

There has been very little detail about what type of food choices will be offered, however rumors are circulating that the meals will consist of meat, fish, poultry and vegetables. Partnering with Kraft Heinz is not the first time that Oprah has done work in the food industry. She was a spokesperson for Weight Watchers, even going as far as to buy a rather large stake in the company and she also recently published a cook book which quickly made it’s way to the top of the New York Times best-sellers list.

Kraft Heinz will initially develop, manufacture, market and sell this new line of food products in the U.S. As part of the joint venture, 10% of profits will be donated to charities aimed at eradicating hunger. The company plans to reveal more details about “Mealtime Stories” later this year!
