A firm that claimed to have built an algorithm to identify women’s orgasms has defended itself after ridicule on social media. Cyprus-based Relida Limited said its algorithm could “validate” female orgasms 86% of the time. Slides from a presentation it produced were posted on Twitter and were retweeted thousands of times. The company said it had wanted to help developers test sex tech products and that its work had been “twisted”. The presentation was posted on Twitter by Stu Nugent, brand manager at the sex toy label Lelo, after he was sent the pitch.
