    A hand crank charger…I can’t stop thinking how ironic this is.

    • Boundegar says:

      Is that what “revolutionary new rotation charging method” is? I found myself thinking, “Really? This company has a revolutionary new rotation charging method, and they’re not manufacturing anything but sex toys?”

    So now they’re called “vibes”

    • theophrastvs says:

      ṽįbëš  …please!

    • jere7my says:

      People have been calling them vibes for ten years or so. And Lelo makes very good ones — I won a $108 Liv at a movie screening a few years ago, and it’s a marvel of Swedish engineering. Beautiful design, too. It’s like an iPod for naughtytimes.

      That said, I’m pretty sure the Gäsm is just an Ikea parody. You can’t actually order it until next week…wood is not a sterile surface for insertables…the “crank” is an Allen wrench, which would be horrible to charge a battery with…and so on.

    Recycled wood pulp and automobile tires?  Oh, stop.  You’re getting me hot.

    • Antinous / Moderator says:

      You and Herb Ritts.

      • welcomeabored says:

        Who is Herb… I don’t suppose he’s… oh, nevermind.  I’ll just print this out and see if I have enough batteries.  Thank you, darlin’.

      • Kimmo says:

        Pretty sure it’s not the tyres…

        Fred there’s reminding me I’m not entirely hetero.

        • That_Anonymous_Coward says:

          Well with his hands full he might need assistance with things…

          • Kimmo says:

            I’m probably more hetero than most straight guys, I bet… just more honest ; )

            He can keep waiting for someone prepared to do more than admire him…

            Shouldn’t take too long though, I’d think

          • That_Anonymous_Coward says:

            I, on the other hand, tend to be way more homo than most straight guys.  It might have something to do with my love of showtunes… oh and cock too.  :D

            Nothing is more fun than throwing their overly macho ‘you better not be looking at my ass’ patter off balance by telling them they aren’t my type… I like men. 
            Then they turn into 12 yr old girls who are suddenly upset that I don’t find them pretty enough.

          • Antinous / Moderator says:

            It’s always the repulsive ones who think that gay men are lusting after them.

          • Antinous / Moderator says:

            “That’s a pretty heavy load; maybe I could help you with it,” is a classic pick-up line.  Didn’t work on me, though.

          • That_Anonymous_Coward says:

            something something clay tablets something something translation to dead language something something…
            Its early and I can’t string this one together right…

      • oasisob1 says:

        That pic could knock the straight right out of a man, or into a woman.

    I’d make a joke about horse meat . . .

    From the LELO page:

    Savings on assembly, shipping and storage go directly to customers,who can get GӒSM for USD 179.99

  6. GawainLavers says:

    But is it sustainable?

  7. knoxblox says:

    Being a guy, of course I like the “hands-on” aspect…

  8. semiotix says:

    That explains the face my wife was making the other day. She enjoys her toys, but isn’t really all that mechanically minded.

  9. Max Allan says:

    I think we’re going to see a few more articles like this. I suspect this was supposed to be an April Fool but as Friday and April Fools day may be bank holidays (depending on where you live), someone thought “I’ll put the content up on the website a few days early and claim the overtime anyway. Really who’s going to notice?” 

  10. Max D says:

    I dont see what DIY about this. More like WDFY.

  12. Argento Dei says:

    I remember actually reading about a hand crank “crank”. As I remember, it was so tedious to crank, it it , it sold quite poorly.

     Mynd you, wøød vibes Kan be pretty nasti

    • Ed Ligget. Tuba. says:

      A wøød vibe bit my sister once…

      • bobcorrigan says:

        No realli! She was karving her initials on the wøød vibe with the sharpened end of an interspace tøøthbrush given by Svenge – her brother in law – an Oslo dentist.

  14. We’ve got a lot of eco-friendly vibrators — toys that are rechargeable, long-lasting, made in the USA, and one’s even solar-powered — but NONE are 100% eco-friendly. Don’t be APRIL FOOL’ED! ;-)
