Charge your cellphone by masturbating

Adult website Pornhub introduces ‘Wankband’ gadget that lets users turn masturbation into energy in a bid to save the planet.

With an estimate of around 41 million visitors every day, adult content website Pornhub decided it would put all that pent-up energy to good use by developing an environmentally friendly product to charge electrical devices while you masturbate.

Generates electricity via a valve

The nifty gadget, dubbed the "Wankband", is strapped to the naughty user’s wrist and generates electricity via a valve that generates and stores energy when it’s moved up and down, according to the X-rated website, which claims to have the "Earth’s best interests in mind".

It also has a USB port on the side to charge laptops, phone, cameras, tablets and other appliances which can be fitted to the cable.

The energy is stored with an internal kinetic charger.

“It’s well known how incredibly fast we run out of our natural resources and, what’s worse, how much they pollute in order to create energy,” a promotional video on the porn site says.

The video further explains: "At Pornhub, we realise that by offering our users millions of hours of adult content, we are part of the problem."

"That's why we're going to show men that they can save the planet by doing what they do best."

Wankband still in its development stages

Although the Wankband is still in its development stages, Pornhub says the device will adapt "naturally to your routine, working during your most relaxed and self-gratifying moment of the day," and give users a way to "love the planet by loving themselves."

While the device is targeted primarily at men, it's "100 percent unisex" and works just as well for women.

According to a report in the NY Daily News, the device has already quickly formed a fan base although "it’s unclear when the band will hit the shelves."

It’s still early days, but the company is looking for “willing hands” to test it out when it’s finished.
