iJoy Ride: A saucy in-home rodeo

Sit on a bike seat, get jiggled around, and tone your abs...with sexy results.

Although it's very aptly named, we're not sure Interactive Health's iJoy Ride will primarily be used for physical fitness.

iJoy Ride, will you go to prom with me? Interactive Health

The idea is simple: You sit on it, and the $479 iJoy Ride gyrates willy-nilly like one of those mechanical coin-operated horses in front of the grocery store. Through its "pitching," "rolling," and "yawing" motions, it promises to strengthen your core muscles.

That may be true, but it's hard to believe it will strengthen your core muscles as much as laughing hysterically at the demo video will. Yes, the iJoy Ride demo video has serious potential as the next viral video sensation.

Also aptly named are the iJoy Ride's speed levels, which echo the four stages of a relationship: Warm Up (1st base), Taking It Easy (2nd base), Getting Serious (3rd base), and Pump It Up (aw yeah).

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go take a cold shower. Or ride this thing instead.
