Best Sex-Positive April Fools’ Day Jokes

It’s the morning after April Fools’ Day, so it’s probably safe to expose some of our favorite jokes.

This round-up comes from our vendors and affiliates, from friends in our sex-positive world here at Good Vibrations. They made us chuckle all day long. Enjoy!


Bangs by Durex

We loved this noise-cancelling headphones spoof by Durex. “It’s the nationwide problem that everyone knows about, but no-one talks about. It’s been getting steadily worse for years. And it’s partly our fault – so it’s time we introduced a solution.”


Screaming O Teams With ID Lubricant for Vibrating Lube

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. This press release went so well over at AVN, it fooled them! (We can’t blame them, who wouldn’t want VIBRATING LUBE?) The Screaming O has joined forces with ID Lubricant to create “liquivibrotic technology,” a lubricant that transmits subtle vibration through its molecular structure. [Read More]


Jimmyjane’s HELLO TOES

In all fairness, it is possible to wear the Jimmyjane Hello Touch on your footies — provided you have very very wee feet and ankles. The image did cause us to chuckle, a brilliant twist on the well-publicized wearable vibe.


Paradise Marketing Launches AF1 Condom in Response to Bill Gates $100,000 Offer

When we first heard that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s Grand Challenges in Global Health research organization had offered $100,000 to anyone who could invent a new kind of condom that “significantly preserves or enhances pleasure” — and “eliminates some or all of the negative connotations associated with condom use,” it sounded like an April Fools’ joke on its own. Paradise Condoms replied with their AF1 development. And with Helium? Hmmm… [Read More]

(Side note: condoms CAN be incredibly comfortable. In fact, if the reason you’re not wearing them because they’re too uncomfortable for pleasure, it’s likely you just haven’t found the best condom for you. Curious? See our How to Choose a Condom article.)




How much do we want this vibrator to be REAL!? LELO took a jab at the eco-friendly green sex movement with this  IKEA-esque Vibrator with DIY assembly. It seemed to have fooled several Design and Womens’ publications, but can you blame them? The instruction manual was particularly inspiring. (While no vibrator is 100% eco-friendly, but we’ve started a rating system to help identify the companies who make the effort. Check out our Ecorotic Products for LELO and other sexily sustainable toys.)


Wet’s new BBQ Flavors, just-in-time-for-the-summer!

Which one would you choose? (Oh come on, be honest… wouldn’t you want to give one of these a try?) Our Executive Vice President Jackie Strano says, “Not unless they made a Peach Cobbler.”


Joy Ride IndieGoGo Campaign

Who better to design a new sex toy than two reviewers (Epiphora and Lorax of Sex) who have been doing it for years. We cringe-LOL’d at the idea of a sex toy meant to be used while driving — while we suggest using discreet vibrators for a fun experience with day to day activities, operating a heavy vehicle is certainly not one of them! That said, A+ on execution of their toy design and the crowd-funding presentation.
