Fleshbot: Pure Filth since 2003.
Because the internet was made for porn.
Fleshbot links to adult sites. It is not safe for work. If you are under 18, you must leave now. Read disclaimer.
We've got some good news and some bad news this week, but we should be able to keep all you sexy techies happy in the end (so to speak). The bad news: there's a new full frontal assault on browsing porn at work. The good news:the iBuzz, a vibrator for your iPod. All that and more after the jump.

While we like to think all our readers respect workplace boundaries and save their Fleshbot browsing for home (ahem), we still feel it's worth giving you a heads-up about Irish company PixelArt's new filtering software that blurs porn images beyond recognition and then rats you out to your system administrator. I'm not sure if the Bible says anything about porn, but it certainly has something to say about calumny.

Just in time for Christmas, Love Labs will be delivering a shipment of iBuzz musical vibrators to LoveHoney, an online toy shop in the UK. At 30 quid a pop, they're not terribly expensive ... but what if you don't have an iPod? "Just turn on and enjoy the 7 amazing vibration patterns," or plug it into any headphone jack. Perfect if your only S&M play companion is a PowerBook. (I've certainly wanted to whip mine on occassion).

Our gadget geek brother Gizmodo interviews Timothy Archibald, the man behind the "Sex Machines" show at New York's Museum of Sex: a collection of photographs and interviews with the DIY inventors behind sexy bots like the ThrillHammer. While sex toy makers don't have their own magazine (yet), Geek Culture's Joy of Tech thinks Tim O'Reilly should take advantage of this obviously underserved market.
