Pipedream Takes on the Big Screen in Sony Pictures Film!

ThinkLikeAManTooPipedream is no stranger to the mainstream spotlight, with products featured on major network TV shows including CBS’ Two and a Half Men, MTV’s Real World, FX’s Sons of Anarchy, and Bravo’s Flipping Out. Now the manufacturer has stepped up to the big screen with a spotlight in Think Like a Man Too.

In this sequel to the original Think Like a Man, a crew of couples head to a Las Vegas wedding where the big event is threatened when plans for the romantic weekend go awry. The men and women split for their respective bachelor and bachelorette parties, but the ladies were sure to bring one hunk along – the Tasty Tyrone Love Doll!

“It’s no coincidence that one of the best new movies requested product from the best adult manufacturer,” said Social Media Manager Sabrina Dropkick. “We’re so proud to consistently see our products reach such wide audiences, proving that Pipedream is everyone’s go-to for quality novelties.”

Think Like a Man Too took the number one spot at the box office opening weekend and continues to screen in theaters across the nation. Find your local screening then check out your favorite Bachelorette Party Favors’ interactive catalog.

Kink Therapy for the Shockingly Vanilla

pd3723-00When you’re an eccentric individual and a sex toy enthusiast, stereotypes are a familiar, amusing, and occasionally annoying occurrence. Most outsiders and even close friends assume that the whips and chains, glass dildos and lifelike faux penises I use in my educational presentations come from my own bedroom. Contrary to what may seem obvious, my enthusiasm for adult toys goes beyond what I choose to bring into my personal life. Preaching the gospel of vibrators, lubes, and FantaFlesh is about helping others find their spark. It doesn’t matter that I’ll never have the applicable equipment to use the RotoBator or that giant ball gags aren’t on my wish list. When I teach others about toys, I carry my exuberance to every item regardless of how much I may or may not enjoy having a particular toy in my own collection.

Pipedream’s Shock Therapy line had crossed my path a few times while working in adult novelty retail. I’d bring the various pieces to the attention of customers who were looking for something out-of-the-ordinary, but I never really gave the products much thought beyond my sales pitch. Though I recently began working exclusively for Pipedream, the line still seemed like something I’d probably never have to touch with the batteries in place. Imagine my surprise when I viewed the toy roster for my first employee product training and found that I would not only have to speak knowledgeably about these torture devices, but I would have to demonstrate them before a group of trainees.

To say that I dislike pain is an understatement. I run screaming in the other direction from anything that could possibly be physically painful. With that said, consider how, with some coaxing from one of our sales reps, I am now a confident fan of Pipedream’s Shock Therapy products. Touching the metal of the Pleasure Probe or donning the Luv Gloves went from terrifying to fun in a matter of minutes. At first, the shock felt a little like touching a door knob in winter, better known as “static electricity,” but don’t let that description scare you. Once I overcame my fear and kept a handle on the conductive surfaces, the shock felt more like a vibrating pulse, albeit with an edge. The intensity of the shock and the quickness of the pulses can be changed with the flick of a switch, press of a button, or turn of the dial depending on which Shock Therapy product you’ve got zappin’.

pd3723-10_02This tiny device isn’t necessarily meant to punish a submissive lover, though it can certainly be used that way. The electricity causes the contacted muscles to contract, much in the same way that certain parts of the body experience contractions at the peak of sexual activity. After building up a lot of senseless fear over this rather delightful toy, the take-away from my experience is this: If I can do it, then so can you! And as for my first employee product training session featuring a live shock demonstration? The Shock line was a hit!
