Problems like, “Yesterday I was arrested because I was straight.”

Ah. The press releases I get…
Pornhub today announced the launch of Wankband, a revolutionary wearable technology that generates and stores energy created from self-pleasuring motions to power small electronic devices. The Wankband, which is currently in the development stage, is seeking Be(a)ta testers who can apply at www.thewankband.com (SFW).
“At Pornhub, we’re always thinking of ways to improve the user experience and world as a whole,” said Corey Price, Vice President of Pornhub. “This is how we came up with Wankband, a wearable technology that enables users to create and harvest energy from their ‘daily routines’ to power, for example, a smartphone – or depending on how long one’s routine, a smartphone and a tablet. With millions of hours of video consumed daily, this could have a major impact on power consumption and give much pleasure to Mother Nature.”
The Wankband, which resembles a fitness tracker, uses a small kinetic charger built into the band to generate and store electricity created by motion — specifically, the motion that is usually done while watching porn. To encourage users to save energy by using their Wankbands, Pornhub is creating a “Wanking Warriors program” that offers special rewards.
