As you might presume, staff-wide, we receive a lot of emails here at the Indy
on a daily basis.
From the local public, national publicists and guys like Brian S. Gross, media contact for the Autoblow 2
Yes, as we thumbed through our firstname.lastname@example.org account — typically apropos for leads related to such things as politics, hard-news topics or general event info — this morning, we came across the subject line: "Record Breaking Male Pleasure Machine Is Now Available For Pre-Order."
Well ... who wouldn't
click on that, in this age of Viagra spam mails and cleavage-laden advertisements on virtually every web page you'll visit during the course of a day. (At least, that's how I'm defending my editor's decision to do so, before calling us in for a laugh around his work station ... ah, office hijinks.)
Anyhoo, we read aloud the highlights of the press release, complete with such phrases as "crowd-funded electronic male oral-sex simulator," "electronic stroker," and "viral video." (Ick! ... worst placement of the word "viral" ever.)
The Autoblow 2's inventor, Brian Sloan
, is apparently also the man behind the Autoblow, Ladygasm and Mangasm mechanisms.
Oh, now might be a good time for me to mention that Sloan raised $280,247 above an initial goal of $45,000 on Indiegogo
. (Men must really
love BJs, even mechanically induced ones ... who knew?)
I see a future where men own high tech masturbation appliances that are a normal part of their daily lives. The Autoblow 2 is the first step in that direction, and a giant leap towards improving the realism of the male masturbation experience.
Says me: I think it's time to get back to some meaningful work today. (Yes, at times, blogging blows.)
