Strap it and Snap it: Take a Selfie for Strap Week!

straponselfie feature image

If you need a good reason to harness your pleasure, look no further than International Strap-On Week! Good Vibrations started #strapweek in 2013 to raise awareness about the joys of strap-on sex. This year, we are celebrating with free classes, in-store and online promotions, and an entertaining #straponselfie contest (jump to rules and prizes!).

 

Who has strap-on sex, you might ask?
Everyone! No really. In fact, Good Vibrations has seen a rise in the number of heterosexual couples who are interested in exploring sex where the man is on the receiving end of the strap-on. Cisgender male penetration can be an intimate and incredibly enjoyable experience especially if the prostate is stimulated safely, as highlighted in The Ultimate Guide to Prostate Pleasure. Good Vibrations has led the way in sexual education and promoting not only lesbian and transgender strap-on use, but also the act of “pegging,” made famous by the Bend Over Boyfriend series starring our Staff Sexologist, Dr. Carol Queen.

I’m in! How can I learn more and get my gear?!
On Wednesday, June 18th, a Sex Educator/Sales Associate will lead a free Happy Hour Humpday workshop on Strap-on Sex at Good Vibrations’ Polk Street store. In-store shoppers can enjoy 50% off a Pleasure Works Silicone strap-on dildo with the purchase of a harness retailing at $50 or more.

Online visitors can read up on Strap-on Topics such as “How to Choose a Harness,” “How to Choose a Dildo,” and “How to Have Strap-on Sex with a Male Partner.” Strap-on Harness Comparison Charts help show the differences in a side-by-side view. Good Vibrations prides itself on educating customers so that they can make an informed purchase and find the best toy for them. Online shoppers will also enjoy a 20% discount on any dildo with the purchase of a harness during Strap-On Week.

How to Enter:

  1. Snap a strap-on selfie photo and make sure you follow the rules (see below).
  2. Submit your selfie via Twitter or Instagram by using: @goodvibestoys #straponselfie #strapweek. You can submit your #straponselfie from June 16 – June 20, 2014 only. No submissions will be considered before or after these dates.
  3. Be creative! You can enter multiple times throughout the week (and increase your chances of winning) by snapping different photos and sharing them with us. One photo = one entry.
  4. Feeling shy about taking a #straponselfie? No problem. Click on the Twitter icon at the bottom of this page, share this post and use @goodvibestoys, and be entered to win a special promo prize! Selfie snappers can also enter to win.

The Rules:

  1. Your photo must have YOU in it. No children or animals, sorry Mr. Fluffkins has to sit this one out.
  2. You must be 18 or over.
  3. If others are in the photo with you, they must be at least 18 years old and have given you permission to share the photo on social media.
  4. NO NUDITY FOLKS. Seriously. We can’t post fully naked photos on our blog or social media sites (though we know you’re all straptastic sexies and harnessing hotties in the nude!). Keep the clothes on for the most part and be creative!
  5. If you win any of the prizes associated with a selfie submission, you must be willing to sign a model release to share your selfie photo on our blog and social media sites and also show us proof of age.

Here are some sample #straponselfies that follow the rules:
