They say that there are three industries that will always sell: food, death and sex.
I guess that was the mentality that Mötorhead had in mind when they launched their own line of branded sex toys.
The heavy metal icons have teamed up with Lovehoney to create a range of rather intimidating bullet and torpedo shaped items for their lady fans. In a press release Lemmy reminded us that, “one of our songs on our debut album was called Vibrator, so we had to have our own one day, right?… Apparently it was worth the wait!”
Dubbed the Official Pleasure Collection, the range has been lauded as having “the loudest buzz in the world” by Lovehoney. Their PR promises the line “delivers the sort of power and pleasure you’d expect from the ‘loudest band on Earth”. Very in keeping with their metal origins, but perhaps not the best asset for a person who wants some private time.
Lovehoney’s co-founder Neal Slateford went on to assert that “We designed these classic vibes for both fans of Mötorhead and rock lovers, as well as those who just want a cool looking toy to add to their collection…. The range captures the rock and roll lifestyle of the band perfectly, and offers a unique counterpoint to the traditionally pink and purple toys that currently dominate the market.”
Well, let’s just say that ‘these classic vibes’ may not be for everyone, but they have personality and they sure as hell have originality. If you’re into loud thrashing metal music then who knows, you may well be into loud thrashing other things.
Check out their range, along with other merchandise and of course music at their website.
