vibrating volkswagen ad

Putting vibrators in the pages is a clever way to get more horny women reading the papers and perhaps save the dying newspaper industry. But when Volkswagen India put a “tiny Chinese buzzing device … inserted gently between the folds of newsprint,” according to Jalopnik, it was meant to draw reader’s attention to their product. The tag line of the ad, which ran in Times of India and The Hindu, read “Feel the shiver of excitement?” and a light-sensitive box started buzzing when the page opened.

Instead, Indian readers took to Twitter to mock the ad — which, if I’m not mistaken, was probably what VW wanted to happen on some level? But someone at Volkswagen India HQ was not amused and responded with a tweet that epitomizes bad PR:

Women would be dumb to call it a vibrator. Or may they do not understand real driving experience. #Punintended #Volkswagen Keep reading »

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!” Keep reading »

Hysteria movie

Starring Maggie Gyllenhaal, Hugh Dancy, Felicity Jones, and Rupert Everett

I wanted to love “Hysteria.”  I really did.  It has Maggie Gyllenhaal being her ball-busting feminist self, Hugh Dancy looking adorable, and the entire film is about the invention of my favorite thing on Earth, the vibrator.

But instead of being the kind of kickass film that had me texting my girl friends, You have to see this movie, “Hysteria” turned out to be pretty much be a rom-com that tries, and fails, to do “A Dangerous Method.” And it fails badly.

“Hysteria” is set in 1880s London and stars Hugh Dancy as Dr. Mortimer Granville, a dedicated, passionate young doctor who is fired from his job at a hospital for trying to introduce newfangled practices to cut back on germs. He’s hired at a private practice for Dr. Dalrymple, who practices “women’s medicine.” But Dr. Granville quickly finds out that the cure his boss is using to help women with their “hysteria” — anxiety, sadness and “nymphomania” — is squirting lubricant on his hands and … well … rubbing her clitoris.  Keep reading »

I once spent a 4th of July weekend with about 15 hardcore evangelical Christians. (Ex-Mr. Jessica’s sister was a born-again.) Explaining to some of the women what kind of website I write for proved to be awkward. But when I told one woman that The Frisky was similar to Cosmopolitan magazine, she exclaimed, “Oh, I read that!”

“Really?” I asked. “Isn’t it a little … uh … raunchy?”

She laughed. “Oh, I just flip past all the shirtless guys and stuff about sex.”

Then what part of the magazine do you actually read? I thought to myself.

That conversation popped into my head again when I saw this article on The Daily Beast about religious websites selling sex toys and the horrifying — not being hyperbolic here — opening story about a Christian woman who was married for 25 years before she finally bought a vibrator and had her first orgasm. Praise be! Keep reading »

Holiday Gift Guide: The Sex Toy Enthusiast (NSFW)

Holiday Gift Guide
Everything you'll ever need for your holiday shopping. Read More »

Every holiday season, every publication imaginable puts together gift guides filled with shopping ideas for the festively confused. It has always surprised me that more gift guides for husbands and wives and boyfriends and girlfriends, don’t suggest sexy goodies. Lots of sex toys are inexpensive (under $40, with lots of them under $30) and unlike a hand lotion or yet another scented candle, they can last for years. I would not recommend that a sex toy be your only gift to a partner this year, as gifts like this can be seen more as “for us” rather than “for you.” But if you’re looking for a stocking stuffer or an extra something-something to go with another gift, I say go sexy!

And it should go without saying this slideshow is NSFW, although none of the images are explicit. Enjoy!

Attack Of The Killer Vibrator!

Hickey Paralysis?

Just one of many scary possible sex injuries. Read More »

April Bonjour, of California (who incidentally has a fantastic porn star name), is suing Pipedream Products Inc. claiming that their vibrator nearly killed her! Bonjour states that she was using the product “in the manner intended,” when a sharp pain led to bleeding so intense she called 911. The poor thing required multiple pints of blood upon arrival at the hospital. Both Bonjour and her son were fearful the injury would kill her (talk about an awkward conversation!). The injury occurred last November, though Bonjour is just now seeking damages in the amount of $25,000. I wonder if the toy in question has been confiscated for inspection of product flaws? Otherwise it may be that Ms. Bonjour had gotten just a bit too creative with her technique. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Oh, the joys of family: this weekend my conservative older sister is coming to visit, which means I’ve got to get my act together. Sweep the floor. Hide the Percosets. And for God’s sake, unplug the vibrator. Luckily I have a designated “goodie drawer” where I keep my toys, but in high school I hid my very first vibe amongst my undies and prayed that neither of my parents ever tried to put away my laundry.

Snoopers be snoopin’ and a girl’s gotta be prepared. Here are 13 places you could hide vibrators of all sizes and (probably) not get caught!

Googlher: The Google-Powered Vibration For Search Engine Oh-Oh-OH-ptimization (NSFW)

Google-powered vibrator photo
Watch Video

Leave it to geeks to figure out a way to combine sex toys and the Internet. Googlher is a Google-powered vibrator that plugs into your computer and vibrates like a “bullet vibrator” with the help of the Googlher Firefox Add-on.

Sounds overly complicated to me. I firmly believe that masturbation should not threaten to crash your browser. But if the over-the-top moaning in this NFSW promotional video is any indication, jerking off to Google actually works! [Vimeo]

Maggie Gyllenhaal’s Friends Borrow Her Vibrators

“By the time I finished the movie I’d been sent maybe 15 vibrators by different people in London with vibrator stores. It was a pleasant surprise. So I have this incredible collection, and I actually use like one or two of them. I lend them to my friends, and they’ll take them for six months at a time.”

— Maggie Gyllenhaal, who is starring in the movie “Hysteria,” about the invention of the vibrator, is very generous. But I find it a bit strange that her friends borrow her vibrators and then presumably give them back. Like checking books out at the library. Huh. [Contact Music] Keep reading »
