An orgasm-inducing home-insemination kit, featuring a vibrator and a fleshlight-like device is in its prototype stage, and is largely designed to aid queer people become pregnant at home.
The Vruit kit is designed by Juliane Kühr, a graduate of Germany’s Saar Academy of Fine Arts, which provided funding for the device. Kühr says that the product, which is yet to be commercially available but was displayed at Dutch Design Week 2023, is the first of its kind.
The kit features a fleshlight-style penis masturbator that has a cavity at the penis tip end, designed to hold ejaculated sperm and help keep it at body temperature. The kit also features a vibrator that the sperm can be inserted into, then released through into the vagina while it’s being used for pleasure. A silicone cup is also provided as an insemination device, for those who don’t want a vaginally penetrative method of insemination.
Kühr said that the Vruit was designed largely to help queer people who might be excluded from government-aided services for insemination (or otherwise find it prohibitively expensive in a professional setting), so might choose to try the process at home with a willing sperm donor.
It’s also designed to offer a sexier experience than having cold medical devices inserted into your orifices in a clinic. “The problem is that there are barely any products designed for self-insemination and the few that exist are very technical and clinical,” Kühr told Dezeen.
“Often people have to misappropriate products like a menstrual cup or syringe. And because the ejaculate is so sensitive, things have to happen very very quickly and it’s very difficult to have a sensual, relaxed experience.”
The vibrator device in the Vruit kit releases sperm when a button at the bottom of the vibrator is pressed. The idea is that you can release the sperm when you’re having an orgasm with the vibrator inside you.
Having an orgasm during the process is helpful because, Kühr said, doing so makes your uterus contract and help the sperm travel upwards, increasing the chances of conception.
We’ll report back if the Vruit gets a commercial release.
