Welcome to the horrors of our Indy inboxes

Posted By on Thu, Jun 12, 2014 at 11:03 AM

As you might presume, staff-wide, we receive a lot of emails here at the Indy on a daily basis. 

From the local public, national publicists and guys like Brian S. Gross, media contact for the Autoblow 2.

Yes, as we thumbed through our account — typically apropos for leads related to such things as politics, hard-news topics or general event info — this morning, we came across the subject line: "Record Breaking Male Pleasure Machine Is Now Available For Pre-Order."

Well ... who wouldn't click on that, in this age of Viagra spam mails and cleavage-laden advertisements on virtually every web page you'll visit during the course of a day. (At least, that's how I'm defending my editor's decision to do so, before calling us in for a laugh around his work station ... ah, office hijinks.)

Anyhoo, we read aloud the highlights of the press release, complete with such phrases as "crowd-funded electronic male oral-sex simulator," "electronic stroker," and "viral video." (Ick! ... worst placement of the word "viral" ever.) 

The Autoblow 2's inventor, Brian Sloan, is apparently also the man behind the Autoblow, Ladygasm and Mangasm mechanisms. 

Oh, now might be a good time for me to mention that Sloan raised $280,247 above an initial goal of $45,000 on Indiegogo. (Men must really love BJs, even mechanically induced ones ... who knew?)

Says Sloan: 
I see a future where men own high tech masturbation appliances that are a normal part of their daily lives. The Autoblow 2 is the first step in that direction, and a giant leap towards improving the realism of the male masturbation experience.
Says me: I think it's time to get back to some meaningful work today. (Yes, at times, blogging blows.)
