Hey Al! Good to see you on the forums! I don’t know if everyone knows that you’re the Marketing Director and developer for California Exotics and that you’ve been in the business for decades. I bet you’re pretty excited to see adult toys being featured in mainstream movies though – what a long way things have come!
I looked up reviews and clips of this new movie, The Ugly Truth out of curiousity. Seems like the scene with the vibrating panties is pretty funny.
Apparently, there's a scene in the movie where the male lead buys the female lead a pair of vibrating panties that she ends up wearing to dinner with her boss, the doctor she's ardent about, the male lead and the other secondary characters of the movie. The remote to the panties falls out of her purse and a little boy picks it up and turns it on. As she is enjoying herself, she is also presenting new ideas to her bosses. Sounds like an awkward moment indeed - but makes for good laughs.
Thank you for pointing out what an old fossil I am
...yes, I do like the openness of the forum and the willingness to chat. When I started in 1970, a 7" and 10" ivory vibrator was all we had to sell...single speed! When the factories made a black colored model, it was a boon to the business and we quickly doubled our sales! In the late 70's, I was in a new store being opened in Wisconsin. We decided to wrap a few of the dildos and vibrators in saran Wrap, and staple them to the wall, put a # next to it, and hope customers would get it and come to the counter and ask for the item by the number. It was the first time these few items had been out of the showcase and away from the "toothless" clerk that nobody wanted to speak to! Well, the rest is history. I later attended a meeting in Cleveland where a group of people from the adult business gathered, and packaged, self-serve adult novelties were born! It was a boon to this new category of merchandise for adults, and the self-serve aspect empowered women to begin shopping for themselves, making a selection, and not have to talk to anyone in the process. It's been a long time since those early days, and it heartens me whenever our products show up in mainstream movies like this one.
