One Company Is Creating A NSFW Pod For Their Own Workers

Have you ever gotten the feeling that your employers care a little too much about your well-being? That isn’t a complaint many of us hear often, but it could become pretty standard if a new NSFW innovation becomes a regular workplace feature. A sex startup has announced it’s making a pod designed for workplaces where employees can masturbate. They’re calling it the Wank Pod. You know, because of subtlety.

As reported by Futurism, the Wank Pod is coming to us from the porn site Stripchat, who claims they already have four of the self-care innovations active in their offices. The Wank Pod is designed as a perk for those employees who choose to not work remotely. Along with other promised accessories, the pods will supposedly be equipped with a 4K LED screen, an Oculus Quest VR headset, lotion, and tissues.

According to IFL Science, Stripchat is putting its money where its mouth is, and where plenty of other body parts are as well. The company reportedly has around 200 employees. Stripchat workers are supposedly granted 30-minute paid breaks to rub whatever needs to be rubbed in one of their four single occupancy pods.

LADBible points out that Stripchat isn’t the first company to put their finger on this kind of handy perk. Last year, Erika Lust of the adult entertainment company Erika Lust Films announced she was giving her employees half-hour masturbation breaks every work day. Lust said she felt the stress of working during the Covid-19 pandemic was getting to her employees, and she thought giving everyone the chance to relieve some stress would so some good. While Lust seemingly didn’t have pods like Stripchat, she did refer to a “masturbation station” she’d set up in the offices.

Futurism seems to believe that rather than serving as an actual workplace innovation, the true purpose of Stripchat’s new Wank Pod is purely to promote its website. It’s difficult to not consider that point of view when you try to imagine how something like these pods would be implemented in your average workplace that — unlike Stripchat or Erika Lust Films — has nothing to do with sex work or the adult entertainment industry. Who’s going to want to bring this new innovation up in the weekly meeting when the Wank Pod is about to be delivered to your accounting firm, retail outlet, or co-working space? Which nurse on the cardiac ward is going to actually want to announce to their supervisors what they’re going on break for? Perhaps most importantly, who is going to clean these things and, if these cleaners aren’t paid more than anyone else in the place, could there possibly be justice in the world?

Regardless of whether or not Stripchat’s Wank Pods start showing up at every civil service office, Wal-Mart break room, and police precinct, some fairly successful people swear by the professional power of masturbation. Just last week Tyson Fury, the two-time world heavyweight boxing champion, said one of keys to his success as a fighter is that he keeps to a daily regimen of masturbating seven times per day, according to LADBible. While Fury could be joking, it seems to be at least partly true, considering this isn’t the first time he’s talked about it. He made the claim back in 2020, saying it keeps his “testosterone pumping.” Not to mention that Joe Rogan recently claimed making sure he does it at least twice a day could make Dwayne Johnson a load of money.
