It’s going to be an exciting year and even more exciting decade!
This last year has certainly been a bit of a roller coaster of ups and downs as far as the Bionic Project goes and has often felt like one step forward, two steps back. While there’s definitely still plenty of challenges to overcome, we’re steadily moving in the right direction even if it’s been slower than I would have liked.
But to quote Jim Rohn “Big achievements come one small step at a time.”
I’m very happy to finally show you a rough Bionic Basic prototype video, which gives a pretty good initial overview of the erection capabilities, stand to pee functionality, stimulation vibe and ejaculation/lubrication reservoir. Please do keep in mind though that it is functionally and aesthetically still a prototype and the final product will be far more refined. In any case, I’m feeling confident that we will be going into production this coming year.
This year also saw the release of the Lollipop for which I’ll also be launching a fun little add on in the new year in the form of an electronic vacuum pump for solo play. And watch this space for a stand to pee adapter for the Rod (for those who have not had meta) and an insertable adapter for the Hot Rod. More to come on this in the coming months.
I’d say it’s also safe to say that this decade will see unprecedented progress as far as penile prosthetics for transgender men goes, and I for one, will be doing my part. The next few years of product development, iteration and refinement on products such as the Joystick and the Bionic will see trans guys having better and better alternatives to lower surgery year by year.
Looking back at the previous decade, it’s been phenomenal to see the increase in social and political awareness around trans issues, as well as product availability and access to healthcare, resources and support. Let’s make sure we keep things heading in the right direction by doing our part in whatever way we can, whether that’s donating to organizations like the ACLU, participating in social and political debate, lobbying and advocacy and/or supporting our brothers and sisters in whatever ways we can, be it volunteering our time to organizations such as the Trevor Project or just being a good friend to someone having a hard time.
As Ghandi said “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
I also want to take a moment to say thank you so much to all of you who have purchased a Transthetics product, left a review, written me emails, donated to the Bionic Project or shared your thoughts about Transthetics on social media and with friends. Your support and encouragement has been absolutely amazing and gives me so much motivation to tackle the challenges of the coming decade head on with enthusiasm and tenacity.
