Masturbation an Option for NYC Streets (but vaping is still a no-no)


Just when you thought every NYC phone booth was turning into a WiFi hotspot…

Tinder rejects, meet “GuyFi” — the world’s first (and probably last) public, publicly-visible masturbation booth for men.

This isn’t the city promoting some genital goodwill. Instead, it’s the brainchild of London-based sex toy company Hot Octopuss, makers of the revolutionary Guybrator, and all-around heroes on the island of Manhattan. Thanks to some crafty timing, and some bulletproof marketing, the company has released the world’s first public masturbation booth.

Locals, you can find the GuyFi at the corner of 28th street and 5th avenue, complete with a chair, laptop, and curtain. Privacy is encouraged, but hardly guaranteed.

So, why do this on a highly trafficked NYC street? According to Hot Octopuss founder Adam Lewis…

“It’s really important for guys to look after themselves so that they can stay healthy and focus properly on the task in hand. We’re told time and time again how beneficial it is to have a break away from your desk. At Hot Octopuss we are all about looking for new solutions to improve everyday life and we feel we’ve done just that with the new GuyFi booth. We hope the city’s men enjoy using the space we’ve created in whatever way they want. It’s completely free of charge… all that we ask is they thank us when they get their promotion!”

According to city police, commuters and local moms, the response was a lot more succinct:

“No… god no…”

Still, the booth is active, and apparently popular. Especially among residents who just don’t have the time to wait for home.
