The Trojan brand condom company was shaking things up in New York yesterday.  They set up “pleasure carts” in two Manhattan neighborhoods, cocked, loaded, and ready to hand out over 10,000 free vibrating sex toys.  Hundreds of people lined up for their chance to receive a vibrator, but the gathering quickly grew flaccid as city officials stepped in to issue a stiff warning for promoters to shut down due to the big crowds.

A vibrator giveaway that attracted long lines in New York City came to an abrupt end when the city told the promoters to pack it up.

The Trojan condom company set up “Pleasure Carts” on Wednesday in two Manhattan neighborhoods, and were set to give away 10,000 vibrating sex toys. Nearly 300 people had lined up at each of the hot-dog-style carts…

Though officials were clearly giving the crowd a hard time, they did state that the carts could be erected again once the company attains proper permits.

…  One of those on line, Melody Henry, grumbled that Mayor Michael Bloomberg “doesn’t want anyone to have fun. You can’t have a giant soda, You can’t have a vibrator.”

I’m not sure what you’re doing with carbonated beverages that you’re lumping them in the same category of fun as sex toys, but I can guarantee you’re probably using the straw the wrong way.  It’s the Big Gulp, not the Big … well, maybe I won’t go there.

The New York Post delivered yet another classic line with their reporting:

“They must have rubbed Mayor Bloomberg the wrong way.”

No word on whether or not Sandra Fluke was going to speak in the city about the hardships caused by a lack of free vibrators.  Though, perhaps the free sex toys would alleviate the need for such drastic amounts of government-funded contraception.
