Ever have one of those days, where you are innocently scrolling through Facebook and you happen to come across something that makes you go, "...Maybe that's a little too much?" Probably all the time, but today was on a different level.
To all my fellow Mammas and soon-to-be Mammas of the electronic world, how would you like to play your amazing music to your children before birth? But there's one catch.. it goes into your vagina. I SHIT YOU NOT! The most thought provoking invention of the day is, Babypod.
"Babypod emerged within an important research line carried out by Institut Marquès on the effects of music from the beginning of life. Music has many benefits for the human brain, including acting as a stimulus for learning and it plays an important role in the sphere of social comunication. Stimulating babies through music in their first months of life has positive effects on brain development; if this is so, why not give your baby the benefits of music starting before birth?"
That sounds like a reasonable line of interest. The effects of music on the early development of fetus' and children have been researched extensively. However, I'm not sure I'm completely onboard with Babypod's methodology. For about $140, the Spanish gynecology clinic, Institut Marquès, is offering you a silicone based product that is inserted into your wahoo like a tampon (but hardly resembles one!) and will play music from your phone at 54 decibels which are equivalent to that of a hushed conversation.
There are no Bluetooth capabilities and it isn't battery operated, which means that you are going to have a delectable cord streaming out of your nether regions. I can already see Facebook blowing up with news of pregnant women frying their vah-jay-jays because of system malfunctions... "Sorry honey, I really wanted that early Julliard's acceptance for the baby!" On top of that, I fear that instead of Mozart most of my generation are going to give birth to babies who have spent their fetus days listening to Skrillex and Calvin Harris tracks on repeat... maybe even Lil'Wayne...(THE HORROR)!
On the other hand, maybe the adult toys manufacturers should keep on this one! Who knows, maybe a good shock down there turns out to be something of interest for all women! Where the Spanish fail at an in-utero stereo, the Germans will make strides in female orgasms! Can I patent this?
All jokes aside, for $134.23 you get:
- Auxiliary Headphones
- Satin Bag
- User's Manual
