Mete-OH-Rite: An Announcement from EdenFantasys

Ansley Ansley
Hidey Ho, Edenites!

Did you guys get a look at our awesome new product, the Mete-Oh-Rite?

I know, it sounded too good to be true, especially for the science junkies out there who have been panting and drooling all weekend.



My inner nerd has been very conflicted all week, because while I SOOOO wanted this to be true, I had to make believe!

So, Happy April Fools Day, all! We had a blast putting together this joke for you guys, and we were all breaking out popcorn and snacks on Friday to watch over the comments. It was a super fun activity for everyone at EdenFantasys to take part in, and we want to thank you guys for sharing in the fun with us!

Here are a few details about how this prank went down.

1st. Come up with a toy.
We wavered between a diamond encrusted vibe, virtual reality sex goggles (thank you, Sylvester Stallone and your impact on my childhood in Demolition Man), and an orgasm inducing thought machine. After reading an update on the Kepler project, it dawned on us: A Meteorite Dildo!

2nd. Make Said Toy
We decided that a wooden toy would be the best to craft with, and the Fling Ergonomic Two Finger from Nob Essence fit the bill. After a lavish coating of metallic dimpled paint, and a little gravel for texture, voila, the Mete-Oh-Rite!

3rd. Sell it. Sell it. Sell it.
The glorious team of designers in Moldova whipped up our super sexy Mete-Oh-Rite page and banners, Ilya and I created a demo video (scroll to the bottom), and the incomparable Kindred stepped up to do our descriptive review! We can’t thank him enough, and our gorgeous little toy is headed his way as a trophy. You might notice there are photos in his review that compare the toy to the Goodfella. Those hands belong to Ilya. J

Stormy created a fabulous post on the forums that directed you guys to all of our info, including a letter from Rayne, our Sexis Editor, that hinted about the little start up company that approached us with this crazy new toy. We all did the research on the best way to make this toy sound *just* believable enough. Resident astronomy guru and customer service superman, Brandon, offered lots of advice about how this process might just be possible, ie meteorite plating instead of solid meteorite, which just made it more exciting.

4th. Release, Sit Back, and Enjoy!
On Friday, March 30th, the Mete-Oh-Rite product was born, and released to our amazing community here at EdenFantasys! We added our own little comments to the buzz, to try and keep the mystery alive, and even contacted Nob Essence to let them in on the joke. It was hard for everyone to keep from checking in on the progress of our little prank over the weekend, but come Monday, we were ready for the reveal. If you haven’t checked out the Mete-Oh-Rite presents page or the sneak peek video recently, head that way! The presents page now includes a snazzy little popup reveal, and the sneak peek video includes a new ending, featuring the Atlanta team!

I hope you guys have enjoyed our little prank! It was a welcome bit of fun here, and I hope this inspires you guys to join us again next year with more April Fools Fake Product Reviews! Take a gander at the awesome submissions we received this year.

Thanks again for being the kind of community that pushes the team here at EdenFantasys to embrace fun, humor, and creativity in this wonderful world of sex toys. We love you!

Ciao. Ciao.
An excellent April Fool's joke, definitely plausible enough to catch me off guard!

I wanted it to be true, but suspected it wasn't.

*totally would have purchased it*

Thank you EF for including me in on the joke! Making up facts about a toy I didn't have made for the hardest review I've yet to write, but I certainly had a blast! I hope it was somewhat convincing.

(And I let out an audible gasp when I found out they were defacing a NobEssence toy)

Congrats on the trophy, and you did a wonderful job on the review.

EF Staff!: Great prank. Although, I was really interested in this. =/ Enjoyed the laugh nonetheless.

I knew I saw the NobEssence logo in the photos on Kindred's review!

Amazing job you guys! You really know how to go the extra mile!

What made you choose the Nob Essense instead of a less recognizable (and less expensive!) shape?

I didn't say anything, but I knew when you said it gave a "slight pull when put near a paperclip." Most paperclips are aluminum and have no magnetic charge whatsoever.

I thought my question about the IUD would crack you, but... no...

I have a magnetic paper clip holder...

I also used paperclips when teaching kids about magnetism. They are usually aluminum, but they are also made with enough iron or steel (also iron) that they do respond to magnets.

I thought it was a joke until I read Kindred's review. Then I decided that it must be real 'cause Kindred wouldn't lie to us.

Right.

Call me naive.

Kindred - you got me!

Does this mean my review is no longer eligible for the Rumble?

(Thanks again to those that nominated it in the first place!)

I loved this joke! It was fun to play along! One of the things I love about EF is the opprotunity to let my playful side out! Kindred, Jaimes, Ilya, Stormy and the others who set this up WELL DONE! I did expect y'all to tell us yesterday afternoon, but it was very funny!

I thought it was funny reading the threads and stuff about it. The funniest part for me was getting a review on it...NOT from Kindred!

Seriously, someone tried scamming their way on site with a review on it.
