THE TOWN OF DILDO SAYS PLEASE DON’T USE US TO SELL YOUR SEX TOYS
So we have to thank Jimmy Kimmel for this one. Because he’s the one who joked about being mayor of the town of Dildo. Yes, the town of Dildo. It’s a little place you can find in Newfoundland and Labrador. North of the Wall, in Canada. So yes, there is the town of Dildo. If they’re smart, they’ll read this and heed my advice: make t-shirts! Lots and lots of t-shirts. Because they will sell like hotcakes. But residents of Dildo don’t want you to sell….. dildos or other sex toys using their, um, name. Yes, this is a thing.
SEX TOY COMPANY OUR PLEASURE RUNNING AD CAMPAIGN FEATURING DILDO LANDMARKS
There’s this sex toy company, Our Pleasure. Well, Our Pleasure thought they’d use the town of Dildo to sell their fun little (or not so little) devices. So they made a promotional video showing their toys with Dildo landmarks in the background. Sure, it makes sense to me, too. But Dildo residents (it’s so weird saying that) are not happy about this at all. So they’re running a petition to get Our Pleasure to keep the town out of their sex toy ads.
OUR PLEASURE SEES NO BIG DEAL, LEAVING TOWN VIBRATING IN DISPLEASURE
The Dildo local service district committee member Andrew Pretty said, “If they had just casually mentioned the name on their site and didn’t go to that extreme, we wouldn’t have had a problem, but they went too far with this. That’s not what the town is about at all.” Well, ok then. Dildo’s Pretty (yes, I did) went on to explain that residents had contacted Our Pleasure directly (and that sounds weird, too), but were ignored. Our Pleasure has said that they were careful to ensure no residents appeared in the campaign. But pretty much, they don’t see what the… bid deal is. It’s enough to make the residents of Dildo vibrate in frustration. Dildo really doesn’t want to help sell dildos.
