Senior-Specific Sensory Sex Toys

Dotyk Was Launched by Dmytro Nikiforchuk To Meet Senior Needs

— July 31, 2020 — Naughty
Dotyk, which means "touch," was created by Dmytro Nikiforchuk to fill the need for senior-specific sensory sex toys. The range was apart of Nikiforchuk's graduate program at the Pedagogical University of Krakow (Institute of Design and Graphics) and serves an under-represented consumer base.

"Most 'classic' gadgets are designed to meet the needs of the 'average middle-aged user'," Nikiforchuk noted about the project. "Instead, I believe that in the production process of any item should focus on specific consumers considering their age and needs."

Each object in the kit was designed to be sued by a couple to stimulate each individual's sense of sound, smell, touch, and sight. Notably, the Dotyk includes a "smelling tube," to allow couples to sniff each other's scent, an ear trumpet-inspired device to hear the other's heartbeat, and metal bearings that can be used as a massager.
