Good Vibrations Celebrating 'International Strap-On Week'
SAN FRANCISCO — Good Vibrations is celebrating “International Strap-On Week” June 16-22 with free classes, in-store and online promotions, and a social media contest.
The company said it has led the way in sexual education, promoting not only lesbian and transgender strap-on use, but also the act of “pegging,” made famous by the Bend Over Boyfriend series starring Good Vibrations’ staff sexologist, Dr. Carol Queen.
As part of the event on June 18, a Good Vibes sex educator/sales associate will lead a free “Humpday Happy Hour” workshop on strap-on sex at Good Vibrations’ Polk Street store. Store shoppers who want to "strap one on" can enjoy 50 percent off of a Pleasure Works Silicone dildo with the purchase of any harness retailing at $50 or more.
Online visitors can also read up on strap-on topics such as “How to Choose a Harness,” “How to Choose a Dildo,” and “How to Have Strap-on Sex with a Male Partner.” Strap-on Harness Comparison Charts help show the differences in a side-by-side view.
Web shoppers will also enjoy a 20 percent discount on any strap-on dildo with the purchase of a harness during Strap-On Week.
The company’s #straponselfie contest lets participants take a selfie photo while wearing a strap-on harness and share via Twitter and Instagram using @goodvibestoys #straponselfie #strapweek.
Contest judges include Lauren Marie Fleming, aka Queerie Bradshaw from FriskyFeminist.com, genderqueer porn performer Jiz Lee, burlesque performer Sophia St. James, and adult performer Q, best known for his roles in the Crash Pad Series.
Official rules, prizes, and example #straponselfie photos can be found on the Good Vibes blog.
