Taking the Nanny State Too Far....NYC Shuts Down Vibrator Give Away.

An unidentified New York City official shut down a condom and sex toy company’s giveaway on Wednesday that planned to distribute 10,000 free vibrators in Manhattan, according to the New York Post.

***
Trojan distributed more than 400 vibrators in two hours from two “Pleasure carts” before a city official who refused to identify himself to press shut the giveaway down. More than 300 men and women were reportedly waiting in line for a free vibrator. “I’m 57 years old. I should be able to get a vibrator!” Linda Postell shouted as the event shut down 40 minutes later.

Mayor Bloomberg’s office later cited permit issues for shutting down the event and said crowds “impeded pedestrian and street traffic.”

“Bloomberg doesn’t want anyone to have fun. You can’t have a giant soda. You can’t have a vibrator,” Park Slope bar owner Melody Henry told the Post.
