A sex toy company based in Hong Kong has apologised after its app apparently recorded a couple in the throes of passion. 

Lovense had created an app to remotely control a vibrator - called Lovense Remote - to allow users more freedom when using it. 

However, a user on Reddit complained because it turned out the app not only allows you to control the vibrator, but also records you while you're at it. 

An audio file containing some rather explicit sounds was stored in the local folder for the app on the user's phone. 

A representative for the company revealed this was how it was meant to work, but the file was supposed to be promptly deleted. 

A glitch on the last version of the app for use on android phones meant the file stayed in the folder until the next time the app was used. 

The company's spokesperson said the glitch had now been fixed.
