Rate My Dick – ManyVids

Adult Website ManyVids and their PR Company heard our episode last week where we discussed life with a micro-penis. They told us about “Rate My Dick”. However, first let’s tell you about ManyVids. ManyVids is an adult website run by former adult performer Bella French. She launched ManyVids due to several loopholes and common industry wide bad practices which meant that her content was being pirated. Therefore losing out on revenue from her stolen videos.

So Bella launched ManyVids in 2014 to change the way content creators work. The site is a community space for members to communicate safely and inclusively. ManyVids fights for women’s rights, gender equality, sex positivity and supports the LGBTQ2+ community. So, you can create content, share it and get paired fairly, without worrying about your content getting pirated.

Now, ManyVids is in the top 900 most visited sites in the world. At the end of 2019, there were 1.94 billion websites at the end of 2019. There’s over 2.8m active members and 79k, independent content creators, ManyVids is the number 1 cam site in the world.

Rate My Dick

ManyVids also has a storefront where they sell tangible items such as underwear and photos.

They can also sell financial requests such as “pay my rent”, “buy me dinner” so fans can pay for something for their favourite models.

Fans can also pay for something called “Rate my Dick” which was launched by Destiny Diaz, one of the most popular ManyVids stars. “Rate My Dick” has become a phenomenon and popular model stream for many models on the site.

Destiny Diaz is so good at it, she was able to get the same guys to come back for additional ratings. Even 3 or 4 times! She even created an educational video! It’s called My Dick 101 which she also sells on ManyVids for $5.99 which has tips and tricks to other models to provide the best dick ratings.

  • Ford Connected Wallbox Charging
    If you order a Ford Connected Wallbox you’ll be able to charge your car with up to 11 kW which will help to reduce charge times. Better yet it’s incredible safe as the Ford Connected Wallbox has integrated fault protection and a variety of smart features.
  • DC Charging
    The Mach-E can be charged up to 130kW for the 75kWh battery pack and up to 150kW for the 99 kWh battery back. Why’s this important? Well you can add up to 93km with just 10mins of charge time. Also, you can charge your car up to 80% in 38mins approx with the 75kWh battery pack and 45mins for the 99kWh battery pack.

Ford are also founding members and shareholders in the IONITY consortium. They aim to build 400 high power charging stations in key European locations by the end of 2020. Helping to significantly reduce charge times for all electric vehicles!

Ford Mach-E and Mobile Apps

Ford have partnered up with NewMotion and by using connectivity with the FordPass Connect on-board modem, the FordPass app will highlight to their drivers public stations in Europe. You can see where they are, initiate and pay for charging services right within the app.

Furthermore drivers can monitor their vehicles charge status remotely. Furthermore by using the FordPass Power My Trip feature, you are able to plan a trip whilst considering the current charge state. If the vehicle requires charging you will be given charging points along the way which make it the most efficient trip for you as possible. Not only that the app will also highlight points of interest to help make the most of the time you have whilst it’s charging!

Ford customers in Europe can push pre-planned routes from their phone to their vehicle over the air. Driving itineraries created elsewhere can be seamlessly downloaded to the vehicles sat nav. This means drivers can get in and set off on their chosen route!

What Technology Is Popular In Cars Right Now

A car can simply serve its purpose of getting you from A to B, or it makes commuting to work a lot more stress-free, and there’s not a chance you’ll have to spend your time under someone’s armpit on a cramped train. However, all cars have a certain amount of technology that makes driving that little bit more enjoyable. Here are some of the most popular technology features in cars right now.

 

Vehicle Tracking Software

When we lose something, or it gets stolen, it can be crushing when you have no way of tracking it. Now that phones and other electronic devices have the ability to be tracked, cars are now having this software installed into their hardware so that it’s possible for them to be trackable. This is not only good for drivers but for local authorities to help them spot stolen vehicles. There’s definitely a high amount of vehicles that get stolen each year, and if criminals are aware of these tracking softwares being in cars, it’s less likely to happen. Not only that, but they have less of a chance of getting away with it.

Rearview Cameras For Parking

Everyone has their strong points when driving and there’s the odd maneuver that perhaps aren’t so strong. A lot of the time, parking can be a difficulty for some drivers. Cameras are a great way to solve this problem, and now many cars have rearview cameras installed to help drivers navigate the tightest of parking spaces. It’s also good for when you’re reversing, and your viewpoint may not be as clear when looking at your wing mirrors. It’ll also help to provide footage of crashes and accidents when they happen. That’ll make your wheel repair that little more affordable if the damage wasn’t your fault.

Connecting Phone Apps

It’s no surprise that many of us are using our phones to control our lives. Not just ourselves but for our homes too. With apps that can control our lights to the heating of our home, even when we’re not at the property itself. So there are plenty of apps now that you can connect to your car, and that give you more features to use within the car itself. There are ones that can help you to lock your car doors remotely and to start the car so that it’s warm and ready on a cold winter morning.

Sound Alerts For Objects

Sound alerts for moving or stationary objects in the road are great for reducing the number of accidents that happen. Being on the road can be very dangerous, and a lot of accidents can happen from careless driving or just by not being attentive. So when you’re reversing back or trying to park, these beeping sounds that increase as you get closer to the object are very handy. It’ll certainly save you some money too!

 

Technology is only going to advance and who knows what will become of our cars in the future. Driverless cars exist after all!
