A sex toy company created a tiny male masturbation fort in New York City. No, we don’t condone it.
On Tuesday, Hot Octopuss erected what it called a “GuyFi” booth on 28th Street and 5th Avenue in New York City, where men could, in theory, go to “relieve stress.”
The company simply put a cloth over a phone booth in what amounted to a marketing gimmick. Inside was a chair and a laptop.
Hot Octopuss was inspired by a Time Out survey, which concluded that 39% of the New York men it questioned admitted to masturbating while at work. A more expansive Glamour survey of 1,000 men in 2012 suggested 31% of its readers have done so.
