Today I learned that "vagina speakers" exist

I must lead a sheltered life.  I certainly was unaware of this development in childrearing:
Pregnant women who like the idea of playing music to their unborn babies can now do so through a brand new gadget: a vaginal speaker. 

Spanish company Babypod has created a small pink device that can be inserted into the vagina just like a tampon.

But this ‘tampon’ doesn’t absorb blood. Instead, it turns a woman's vagina into a sound system – and connects it to her smartphone- transporting music  up into the womb at a volume of 54 decibels (similar to a gentle conversation)...

The product was launched this month at ‘the first concert for foetuses ever held in the world’ - which took place in Spain. 2009 Eurovision singer Soraya serenaded ten pregnant women - all of who had Babypods in their vaginas - with Christmas carols.
Or did I party too much on New Year's Eve and have woken up on April 1 ??


  1. Sounds like a great opportunity for some social-science experimentation. Play one group nothing but right-wing talk radio (at considerably more than 54 decibels) and play the other NPR's Robert Siegel reading from the phone directory. Then see which group produces more serial killers 30 years later.

  2. If there is music there is vibration. If there is a volume control then there is variable vibration. If there is variable vibration then I question if the unborn baby is the actual intended target of the device.

  3. I don't know that the baby will hear much at 54 dB though, it's already 90dB in there: http://hearinghealthmatters.org/hearinginternational/2014/baby-sound-generators/

  4. Yeah, but you can't play them too loud. Otherwise the asshole next door might complain.
