Unfortunately for lonely environmentalist women:

Women get a buzz from eco-vibrator
Green fans are getting a buzz out of a new hand-cranked vibrator that makers say could help save the planet.
The eco-sex toy — dubbed the “Earth Angel” — uses a small wind-up handle to power up rechargeable batteries inside the casing.
It had originally been planned as a sex aid for the Third World where batteries and electricity supplies are unreliable.
But the Irish manufacturers Camden Enterprises have been swamped with interest from Green followers after displaying the vibrator at the Ars Electronica fair in Linz, Upper Austria, this week.

(Hat-tip: The Jersey Nut.) Although this item is not yet in stock at Amazon, they do offer a fine selection of . . . uh, personal care products.

Because this is a conservative blog, we discourage the use of such devices. Instead, if guys are shopping for Christmas gifts with the intention of producing . . . uh, erotic ecstasy for the ladies, we suggest traditional items: Chocolate, diamonds and mink coats.


High-tech is great for shopping — especially our Amazon “Cyber Monday” deals — but some things are just better the old-fashioned way. IYKWIMAITYD.

    I used to joke about ladies’ conveniences with a pull-starter.  Guess there’s one more thing you just can’t parody.

    Lonely environmentalist women can always go to North Dakota.  To protect the sheep, as it were.

    It also gives new meaning to the term “cranking“.

    How long does the charge last?  Because I’m not sure that this Third World eco-dildo is going to do the trick for some ladies, who require the kind of long-lasting action only alkaline Energizers can provide.

    I don’t want to know where you put the handlebars.  Oh, and hardtail or softtail?

    Look, Bob, let’s not get into ethnic chauvinism, OK? Otherwise I might start soliciting testimonials to the superiority of the Celtic Lovehammer. But I’ve got six kids, which should suggest that customer satisfaction is not a problem.

    The point of this post, of course, was to promote Amazon sales, of which I get a percentage. Come for the jokes, stay for the shameless capitalism.

    Hey, it was you that brought up endurance.  Six kids, six minutes ain’t nothing to brag about, son.

    It does suggest you’ve got great aim.  Ain’t necessarily probative of firepower… I mean, a .22 short in the right place will do the job as well as a long burst from a chain gun…IYKWIMAITYD…

    Actually Richard, we put The Godfather soundtracks [I and II] on, follwed by some Jerry Vale, climaxing [!] with the Dino Box Set.

    Bob– So either you’re saying you make love like Marlon Brando in his 70’s or both “Sex With a Smile” 1 AND 2 lied to me?  Barbara Bouchet and Edwina Fenech would NEVER do that!

    I suspect many ahh, less-than-desireable, OWS types will succumb to a type of condition known as “winder’s wrist.”

    Which would then give impetus to calls for treatment under Obamacare.

    Veeeery old news…  We blogged about   this very item in Sep ’09, with the same reference to the “Ars Electronica fair this week”. 

    I guess there should be a 2.0 version by now,  powered by guano.

    There’s a solar-powered version if you’re in no hurry…
