IKEA-style vibrator

LELO, a Swedish sex-toy company, has produced an IKEA-style, assemble-it-yourself vibrator called GӒSM (what else?) that comes with its own Allen key.

GӒSM is the world’s first truly eco-friendly vibe, made with100% recycled materials and powered by a revolutionary new rotation charging method pioneered by LELO. Meanwhile, GӒSM arrives in an 8-piece set that you assemble yourself, allowing you to take pride in piecing together your pleasure, and the money saved on production costs goes directly to you!

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

      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”

      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.

    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

    But is it sustainable?

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

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

    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?”

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

    “Insert into slot C”

    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

  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! ;-)
