Trojan is trying to break some sort of record by handing out the most free vibrators ever. Well, that’s what they’re claiming tomorrow and Thursday will result in when they hand out 10,000 (FREE!) vibrators from, get this, hot dog carts. The carts that have been renamed “pleasure carts” for the event can be spotted in Central Park for those who would like to get their hands on the freebies. The brand plans to distribute 5,000 each of two different vibrators, so those walking by can have their choice, of course. Because if you’re handing out free goodies, especially ones that people will actually be using, variation is key in any marketing ploy.

The Trojan truck stopped by TheGloss offices about a year ago and a few of us went down there to see what we could score. Both Wright and I walked back upstairs with our arms full of vibrators. Although I’ve given two away, I can attest to the fact that the one I kept isn’t too bad for a vibrator you can pick up at your local pharmacy.

If you’re lucky enough to be in Central Park tomorrow or Thursday and see those hot dog carts, you should walk on up to one, put out your hand and demand your free toy. How could you not? Everyone loves free stuff — especially vibrators and cupcakes. If I knew what was good for me, I’d quit this writing thing, paint an old ice cream truck hot pink, call it “Mandy’s Pleasure On Wheels” and start making lives better with free sex toys and sweets. I don’t know how I’d make any money, but giving back to the community isn’t about profit; it’s about frosting and orgasms.
