The Navy SEALs who nailed Osama Bin Laden don’t exactly need any more thanks from the world in general, but the sex industry folks are determined to show their appreciation nonetheless.
The folks who make Fleshlight – the male sex toy that looks like a flashlight but is really a… er… female genitalia simulator – have sent the team a six pack of their “Stealth” product. According to the company, that particular model is so named because it is easily concealable and hard to detect. Much like the SEALs.
“We want to thank the Navy SEALs for their efforts,” said Brian Shubin, chief operating officer of Fleshlight, in a press release. “For their courage, and the fact that they risked their lives to protect our freedom, we hope they will appreciate our gifts.”
Texas-based Fleshlight recently announced it had sold more than 4 million, uh, units since beginning operations in 1995. That seems to counter the notion that men aren’t as apt to buy sex toys as women.
Fleshlight has done well for itself by essentially licensing the private parts of female porn stars, including the likes of Jesse Jane, Tera Patrick, Katsuni and Stoya. And, of course, there’s also the Avatar-themed Fleshlight. No word on whether there are plans to send any of those to the SEALs.
