Soon You'll Be Able To Charge Your Phone By Masturbating

Introducing the Wankband, a "dirty energy" device from Pornhub. Yes, really.

Back in 1947, the U.S. government imprisoned Dr. Wilhelm Reich, Sigmund Freud's star student, for trying to turn orgasms into harnessable energy. Turns out he may have been onto something.

Pornhub claims that it's created the first (and probably only?) wearable that converts the signature up-and-down movement of male masturbation into energy that charges your phone, laptop, tablet, whatever. The company is on a mission to save the world by doing what they do best -- by getting you to, uh, give yourself a hand.


It's called the Wankband, and according to Pornhub, "[It's] the first gadget ... that allows men to love the planet by loving themselves."

A weight inside the band -- which is worn around your wrist -- goes up and down during sexytime. That motion generates energy that then charges your various devices. You simply plug your phone into the band's USB port and stroke away.

Watch the SFW promotional video to get all the juicy deets:

There are some flaws with this planet-saving plan, though. Pornhub doesn't mention exactly how much "fun" is needed to fully charge a device, but we're guessing it would take a looonggg time to generate enough power to fuel all those apps. Maybe don't ditch your normal phone charger just yet.

If you're interested in testing out the Wankband, you can join the beta testing team here. Pornhub says women can enjoy the energy-saving benefits of Wankbands as well, but somehow we're skeptical of this claim since the band is solely powered by vertical movements. If any woman out there signs up, let us know how it goes, OK?
