Sex toys help singers hit the high notes

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A Canadian voice coach is creating a buzz with his unusual technique of using vibrators to help his students hit the high notes.

    University of Alberta drama professor David Ley uses the sex toys to massage the throats of actors and singers.

    "I know it's a bit different. I know there's a giggle factor, but it works. It relaxes tension in the larynx, it improves range and projection," he told

    He was looking for an alternative to massaging the larynx by hand, for people who hate the feel of fingers on their throat, when he discovered the technique.

    That led him to a sex shop [Well, of course it did!] where he found some vibrators that had a frequency around 100 and 120 hertz, the range of the human voice. He tried some on a student with good results.

    "Not only did it free tension in the laryngeal muscles, but it seemed to stimulate vibrations in the vocal folds," Prof Ley told said.

    "What I'm trying to do is to help the person hit that high note or harness their emotional energy.

    "Hopefully, like any good training tool, it's something that gets you somewhere and helps you maintain it, but once you're there, you're there."
  2. 'Sex toys'? 'Canadian voice coach'? Will he ram huge objects up Justin Beiber and Leonard Cohen?

    Let's hope he's not coaching an 8 year old for Annie.
  4. I'm the gruffest cunt on the planet, fairly sure even I could hit a high note with an 18" artificial schlong up my starfish.

    Diesel versions are much more expensive.

    If she isn't driving at least 15,000 smiles a year, it won't pay for itself.
  14. Beach Boys were ahead of the game then.
