NEW YORK —TROJAN Vibrations Pleasure Carts are back on the streets of NYC and free to proceed with their 10,000 TROJAN vibrator giveaway, despite being shut down yesterday.

TROJAN started its giveaway yesterday, distributing free TROJAN Tri-Phoria and TROJAN  Pulse vibrators at various locations throughout the city, from specially-designed TROJAN Vibrations Pleasure Carts modeled after New York City’s famous hot dog carts. The promotion attracted hundreds of men and women, however, according to reports, Mayor Bloomberg put a halt to the giveaway citing permits problems.

A TROJAN official told the New York Post that the company has obtained the mandated $3,100 permit that all commercial enterprises  that want to use the city’s streets require.  

“We’re back up and running! The giveaway will climax tonight at 5 p.m.,” a company announcement said. “With official NYC permits in hand, the TROJAN Vibrations Pleasure Carts are reloaded and will be serving up pleasure tonight from 5-7 p.m. in the Meatpacking District on the corner of 14th Street and 9th Avenue.”

According to the company, in an effort to get the activation back up as quickly as possible, and honor TROJAN’s commitment to bring pleasure to the people, the operation has been consolidated to a key location in Manhattan, where multiple TROJAN Vibrations Pleasure Carts will be onsite, stocked with thousands of the brand’s pleasure products.

For anyone that missed the announcement of the new location and time, TROJAN Vibrations brand ambassadors will be at previous planned locations (Union Square from 4-5 p.m.  at 17th and Broadway; SoHo from 4-5 p.m. at Lafayette and Broome; and Murray Hill from 7-8 p.m. at 34thst and 3rd Ave. armed with clipboards, taking email addresses for a vibe delivery straight from the “Trusted Trojan Brand.”
