Have you ever looked at a teddy bear and thought to yourself, ‘Man, i wish that teddy bear had a vibrating nose that I could masturbate with’? No? Me neither. But apparently there’s a market for vibrating sex bears, because Teddy Love is currently in the midst of an Indiegogo campaign to raise funding.
You can check out the campaign video here to get an idea of what this ‘lil bear can do:
This new sex toy’s tag line is: “You’ve grown up. Now your teddy has too,”
That’s pretty fucking weird, if you ask me.
I don’t know how I feel about the sexualization of children’s toys, even if there isn’t anything inherently wrong with it since it’s just an object. But I have childhood associations with that object, godammit!
It all started with this messed up My Little Pony inspired butt-plug, that well, was being plugged by notable porn actress and former semi-reality-celebrity Tasha Reign.
Now listen, if you’ve been reading this blog for a little while you know that I’m no prude. I’m pretty sexually open, I’m down to try new things within reason, and I like to promote sex positivity and transparency.
Having said that, this thing rubs me the wrong way. But maybe I’m just saying that because I don’t have one so I haven’t given it the opportunity to rub me the RIGHT way. If you know what I’m saying. I’m talking about using it to masturbate. Now do you get it?
Here’s the main benefit that I can see to this thing: many women are afraid to have sex toys because they’re embarrassed, or worried about discreetness, or whatever else. In that sense I can totally get behind something that helps women get over their embarrassment and get their rocks off.
If you don’t find Teddy Love completely fucked up and weird, then you should probably go to their IndieGogo account and help them get their project off the ground. You can do so here.
