Trojan Vibrator Giveaway Brings Excitement to the South End

Long lines managed by bouncers on a Monday afternoon?

Hundreds of people lined up this afternoon to get a free vibrator courtesy of Trojan, which held a giveaway at the Cyclorama at the Boston Center for the Arts in the South End Monday (not at City Hall Plaza, thanks to the protests of the Mayor’s office.)

“There were a bunch of people lined up at eight or nine o’clock this morning,” a marketing representative at the event said. “The line snaked around the block and down [Tremont] street. There was a huge turnout by 12 o’clock when the doors opened.”

A “Pleasure Cart” was set up by the doors, modeled after your average hotdog stand. (Yeah, that deserves a giant side-glance.) A “bouncer” stood at the entrance (black trench coat, Aviators, etc.) checking ID’s, as the event is 18+. By two o’clock, there were still plenty of people waiting, and the long line seemed to stay steady throughout the day. “I found out about it today on their Facebook page, so I rushed over here to get one,” one eager female said. She later exited the Cyclorama waving her vibrator in the air.

Trojan has already held similar giveaways in New York City and Washington D.C. One of the event organizers said Boston was the last stop in the giveaway tour, so it looks like the company’s need to “bring pleasure to the streets” has come to end.
