"'Smart Condom' Tracks Thrust Speed and Velocity and Lets you Share the Data"

Share the data?
Even Facebook might demur.

From c|net:

Sex wearable is coming to track your performance and judge you
It's basically a Fitbit for your man bits that tracks thrust speed and velocity. But don't be too hard on yourself.
The i.Con Smart Condom, which markets itself as the "world's first smart condom," is actually a ring that fits over a boring, dumb condom and claims to track the exercise of your man bits, as well as detect chlamydia and syphilis.

The ring, first announced last July, is currently available for preorder on British Condoms for £59.99 (about $74, AU$97) with an unknown release date. But you can't actually put a ring on it yet -- the company says it won't take your money until the product has a firm release.

In short, the i.Con ring promises to answer every burning question you've ever had about your sex session. Don't worry, it will pair with an app for all your data visualization needs.
According to the preorder page, the ring will answer questions such as:
  • What's my thrust velocity?
  • How fast are my thrusts?
  • How many calories did that sesh just burn?
  • How many times did I just have sex? 

i.Con? Is that one of them psychomimes? (not to be confused with a Psycho Mime—the silent killer)
