Jewish law enshrines certain reproductive rights for women, including a wife’s conjugal rights. In his book, Love, Marriage, and Family in Jewish Law and Tradition, Michael Kaufman details these rights. Kaufman writes that a Jewish husband’s obligation to make his wife happy in the bedroom is so important that halacha forbids him from traveling unless she gives him permission and he returns within 30 days, lest his absence forces her to suffer with unfulfilled desires. This can create a challenge for modern Jewish couples if one spouse has to be far away for business or other obligations. Fortunate for such couples, teledildonics could provide a solution to their dilemma.

A teledildonic device is a sex toy or pair of sex toys that can be controlled by a lover from a remote location. Gareth May reported that the history of teledildonics is decades long and started with fantasies in science fiction stories and futurist articles. In 1970, a British writer envisioned a stroker and dildo set that communicated at a distance so that the actions of each sex toy on one lover would be based on the sensory input the other toy got from genitals of the other lover.

Fictional descriptions of teledildonic devices multiplied until they became a reality in recent years. May’s article mentions options currently on the market. KIIROO, a teledildonic device for online sex, won a 2015 XBIZ Award. It was inspired by a scene in the futuristic action movie Demolition Man. Couples can also buy teledildonic devices made by Lovense. That company’s founder realized the need for teledildonics when he was working in the UK while his girlfriend lived in China.

Teledildonics have even made the leap to smart phones. Ohmibod is an app that lets a user log orgasms and connects smart phones to sex toys that facilitate orgasms. A user can control a connected sex toy with her own phone or grant a long-distance lover the ability to control it through his phone. Another app, WeConnect lets remote lovers control sex toys, chat, and cam. Although the reviewer found her experience with teledildonic apps wanting, future apps might improve on the idea.

Long distance loving has evolved from phone sex to cybersex to teledildonics. New devices add a tactile element to remote lovemaking. Sex toys controlled through smart phones or via the internet let couples connect in new ways. Aided by a teledildonic device, a Jewish husband can make his wife happy from afar. If a wife finds these teledildonic encounters satisfying enough, her husband may be able to travel for more than a month without her, although couples should check with their halachic authorities before relying on this leniency.
