A year after a sex toy’s nomination for an award was revoked because the Consumer Technology Association deemed it “immoral, obscene, indecent, profane or not in keeping with CTA’s image,” a vibrator has been named as a finalist for an award at the same electronics show in Las Vegas.

The vibrator, which is made by California startup Lioness, is up for the Last Gadget Standing award at CES 2020.

Equipped with artificial intelligence, the sex toy can be controlled via an app and bills itself as the first vibrator of its kind to use data.

“The Lioness Smart Vibrator (2nd Generation) makes a great thing even better,” according to the company. “Building on Lioness’s patented biofeedback and precision sensor technology, 2nd Generation adds new visualizations and AI-driven guidance. Learn what sexually works for you based on your unique body and experiences. It’s like having your own personal orgasm trainer—and an extension of your senses.”

This is the first year sex technology products can qualify for awards or be showcased as part of the health and wellness category at CES.

The winner of this year’s award will be announced during a live event at CES on January 9.
