Tragedy struck Manhattan yesterday when city officials shut down a vibrator giveaway sponsored by Trojan. The condom company planned to give out 10,000 of their new vibes from pushcarts at three tourist-heavy locations: Rockefeller Center, South Street Seaport, and the Flatiron District, which is near The Frisky’s offices. New Yorkers congregated f0r free $40 Trojan Tri-Phoria vibes (two thumbs up, says I!) or a free $30 Trojan Pulse.  Yet less than an hour into the event, an unnamed city official pooh-poohed the crowds and told Trojan’s Pleasure Carts to pack up and go home.

Horny area woman Linda Postell was irate about the shutdown, huffing to The New York Post, “I’m 57-years-old. I should be able to get a vibrator! I have a problem with the smoking ban and the soda ban — and now this!”

In a written statement, New York City officials denied its increasingly-nanny-state behavior was to blame for the buzzkill:

This activity promoting Trojan products, which impeded pedestrian and street traffic, did not have a permit. The production company affiliated with the event is currently in discussions with the Mayor’s Office to hold a promotional event with proper permits at a later date.

First they came for the smokers, and I did not speak up because I was not a smoker.

Then they came for the soda drinkers, and I did not speak up because I don’t drink much soda.

But if you are going after sex toys, New York City, then YOU ARE MESSING WITH THE WRONG WOMAN.
