Why the BDSM and porn community loves the Nintendo Switch

The internet has already sexualised the Nintendo Switch just a day after the console’s official announcement.

It’s particularly the use of the word switch which has caused the most controversy.

A “switch” for those of you are not in the know is a “whip-like” object typically used to punish someone in the BDSM community.

Dutch Game Garden’s communication manager, Eline Mujires collected all the sexual references made about the console in a single tweet.

While it’s a bit of a stretch at most, the fact that so many people came to the same conclusion at the same time is perhaps a bit telling.

The porn industry hasn’t been slow to wonder whether the Switch will offer it flexibility either, reports CNET.

“We look forward to doing our own discoveries on the product, and giving our audience who will be buying this amazing product the opportunity to integrate their love for our content with their new purchase,” said Brad Burns, YouPorn’s VP of marketing.

    Er….no. Not it’s not at all. a Switch is someone who enjoys and can act as both a dominant or submissive person in a sexual relationship. They can “switch” between the two.

    Do some research before posting this stuff please

    Yah, I’m not sure how you thought they meant the spanking implement. All of those tweets and memes are referring to switches, people who can both dominate and submit in sex. Even when I heard the name, I cracked a joke about switching. It’s probably just word association.
