A new Alexa skill will help you set the mood. Oh, and buy condoms.
Ever find yourself in an intimate moment and wish you had a hands-free way to add a little music to enhance the mood?
That’s what SKYN condoms wants to offer you with their new skill for Amazon’s Alexa. It’s called Set the Mood, and it’s got a variety of playlists perfect for your next sexy occasion. It’s not the only way to use your Echo to create a certain ambiance of course.
The company says they’re meant to “conceptualize the feeling of SKYN condoms in the form of curated playlists.” So if you’ve ever wanted to hear how a condom feels, now’s your chance. All you need to do is add the skill, and then you start by asking Alexa to “set the mood.”
You can then say things like “I’m feeling sexy” or the slightly more awkward “I’m feeling intimate,” and that will start the music flowing. You can also ask Alexa to tell you about the playlists or list the DJs, though that’s a real mood killer in the moment — so you might want to give that a shot before your date is in the room.
Besides playing music, you can ask Alexa to find you condoms. (She’ll order them for you on Amazon, natch.) If you’re curious, you can also ask her more concrete questions about why you should wear condoms and what the most arousing part of the body is.
If you really want things to get weird, you might try saying one of the other random prompts like say “What is sexy?” and “I’m horny,” which if you’ve never said out loud to a machine is a real, uhhh, experience that could make you question where you are in life.
But don’t overthink it. Just lose yourself in the music.
