Giveaway: The Ins and Outs (Teehee!) of Vibes Going Mainstream (It’s true!)

Let it be noted, my mom subscribes to my blog.

That said, a teeny part of me is squeamish about this post — but the rest of me is very aware that if I were to buy her 50 Shades of Gray, she’d totally put it in her travel bag.

Anyway, Trojan just sent me their “wine and vibes” package so I could review their latest vibes on the market (and yes, Trojan VibrationsPleasure Package and reflect on the  growing mainstreaming of vibes and sex in pop culture. They are everywhere — 50 Shades of Grey, Hysteria the movie, Trojan Vibrators in drugstores, etc – and I think it’s genius. After all, can you think of anything we all have in common more so than sex?

(Not with each other, obviously.)

You guys, let me share something with you I learned years ago when I interviewed the owner of my favorite adult to store – sex toys have been around A LONG TIME. We’re talking thousands and thousands of years. In fact,  8-inch rod-shaped stone pleasure objects have been found that date back 30,000 years. IMAGINE WHAT THOSE WERE USED FOR. Tee hee. And Hippocrates in the 4th century B.C. claimed a woman’s uterus could dry out from lack of sex — a.k.a. “hysteria.” Guess what his solution was. Mmmhmm.

The vibrator is older than the vacuum, or the iron, or the microwave, or the coffee pot. (Probably because we all have our priorities.) In fact, before you had to go into a red-light district adult store to get them, they were not seen as porn. They were seen as MEDICINAL. That’s right!

Need further validation? Go to the gilded castle of all women. Sex and the City featured the Rabbit in one of their most famous episodes. “You don’t even need them to have sex with anymore,” said Miranda of men. “As I’ve just very pleasantly discovered.”

Well, if it’s true on Sex and the City….

Trojan’s lastest mainstream-found (as in right in the condom aisle at your fave drugstore) vibes include  Trojan Vibrating Twister, which is totally a twister! With twisting handle, it allows for multiple positions and options, including: 4 unique twistable positions and 8 total settings of 5 speeds and 3 pulse patterns, Vibrating Tri-Phoria with 8 total settings of 5 speeds and 3 pulse patterns, and the Vibrating Pulse – a compact wonder – geared toward precise stimulation with 6 total settings of 3 speeds and 3 pulse patterns. Totally travel friendly!

And you can’t get more mainstream than winning all of these here in my blog! One reader will win the Trojan “Wine and Vibes” kit, which includes all of the below (and pictured above):

·         Vibrator Trivia cards

·         Sex position of the day book

·         Dirty Minds game (so fun!)

·         Sexy slang game (think Pictionary w/ sexy, fun themes)

·         ALL the vibes Trojan produces!

·         Party favors so you can have a wine + vibes party of your own!

To enter to win, comment below and tell me why you need this kit – and then make sure you are following @AlyWalansky on Twitter and RT this giveaway. Deadline to enter is June 5. Good luck!

    Well, it has been a hell of a couple years dating. The disappointment and frustration of endlessly being surprised in bad ways has gotten to me, and I am exhausted. I am taking a little break from dating (not forever of course, but just to let myself recharge my enthusiasum). This prize would deffinitly let me enjoy myself in my me time so that I can get back out there a new, enthusiastic women into the insane world of dating. It would also give me fun ideas for when I do find a worthy partner who is right for me. =)

    My wife is with her brother and sister-in-law for the month of June helping out with their new baby. She is FIVE HUNDRED MILES away from me! I am going to go an entire month without her sitting next to me in the car, snuggling with me on the couch, sleeping next to me… having SEX… a MONTH! We are going to be so ready to tear each other apart when she gets back, and this kit will just help increase the intensity of the explosions that await us!
