Hi. I'm Kyle, aka qDot. I need money for sex toys.

I've run https://www.metafetish.com (aka https://www.slashdong.org) since 2004, writing on topics pertaining to sex and technology. This has included everything from documentation of projects, to intimate user interfaces, to patent lawsuits, to the rollercoaster of the sex tech DIY movement.



Throughout this time, I've been reverse engineering sex toys and releasing code to allow users to use their computer controlled sex toys in whatever way they saw fit. All of this code is open source and available to everyone at

http://github.com/metafetish

Lately, I've started on https://buttplug.io, a new initiative to create a clearinghouse for sex toy control software, as well as a unified app to make it easy for anyone to control any sex toy through whatever technology they like (the web, raw sockets, carrier pigeon, etc).

I'm also working on a new video series called Buttplugin' with qDot, where I cover sex tech via engineering analysis and hardware teardowns.
These days, toys are being released at a faster pace than I've seen so far. I'd like to be able to keep up with my reversing projects, but it's getting a bit costly to buy a bunch of toys. This Patreon campaign will help me keep up with the times, as well as gather feedback from a community that's engaged enough to actually give me money to do this.

While there's certainly a non-zero amount of warm fuzzies you'll receive from supporting this Patreon at any amount, some of the special perks include:

- See metafetish posts before everyone else!
- Q&A with me
- Handwritten letters, which allow you to experience my attempts at calligraphy
- Priority choice of which toys I work on
- And for one special person, a Metafetish VIP position, with untold perks and glory and buttplugs

Thanks, and I look forward to your money.

If I achieve this level, it means all estim boxes and most mid-range sybian-style and fucking machines are in range for a monthly buy, or possibly just buying a huge pile of small vibrators to work on all at once. I'm gonna have to start figuring out where to store all this stuff.
