More than 180,000 tech industry executives, analysts and investors are set to descend on Las Vegas, Nevada, from January 8-11, for CES, the world's largest consumer technology trade show.
"Society needs to drop the taboo around sex and sexuality - it's a part of life and health that absolutely should be part of mainstream discourse", Lora DiCarlo founder Lora Haddock said in an open letter to the CTA.
Gary Shapiro, CEO of CES organizer Consumer Technology Association, says every company is a technology company these days.
Administrators initially cited a certain rule, saying entries deemed to be "immoral, obscene, indecent, profane, or not keeping with" the organization's image will be disqualified. A CTA representative told BuzzFeed News that the product "does not qualify because it does not fit in to any of our existing CES 2019 categories".
CTA Deputy General Counsel Kara Maser acknowledged Lora DiCarlo's frustration, but affirmed the product's ineligibility, "even if your submission was mistakenly allowed in the first instance".
Browns Relieve Interim Head Coach Gregg Williams of Duties
One name that could return is special teams coordinator Amos Jones, who spent time with Kitchens in Arizona on the Cardinals. Kitchens was a condition of employment for Browns candidates, or at least McCarthy, and they may have dodged a bullet.
In 2018, a sex robot was exhibited on the floor of CES, with the creepy looking device (if that's the correct term) showcased on stage.
If you ask us, a product created to empower women's sexuality and health is far from "profane", and as Haddock made clear in her blog post, it practically screams robotics.
They scored it highly enough for it to be among products recognised in the awards, she added.
Interestingly, the CTA didn't seem to have any issues promoting sex toys for men.
Apple (AAPL) displayed a big message to its competition for this year's CES.
Furthermore, the presence of women at the tradeshow is relatively less, be it female-focussed products or female presenters. However, the organisers later backtracked and mentioned the product didn't fit in any category, be it robotics or drones. A scarily lifelike sex doll for guys actually launched on the floor of CES this year.
