At last week’s International CES, the CEO of woman-run sex tech startup, called out the Consumer
Technology Association for rescinding its CES Innovation Award. The company received the award for its first-ever product, the Osé personal massager, only to have the CTA backpedal and retract it. Furthermore, the company was not even allowed to exhibit at CES 2019. CTA CEO Gary Shapiro and CTA EVP Karen Chupka sent the company a letter stating that the product was ineligible for the Robotics and Drone category, according to Lora DiCarlo.
