LAS VEGAS — During the International Lingerie Salon held last month at the Rio in Las Vegas, guests placed bets on sex toy races in the VIP area of a nightclub overlooking the city, where Fun Factory hosted a gambling party.

The game is called “Stronic Sex Toy Race” but Huffington Post named it "Kentucky Dirty."

It’s played on a poker table by up to eight people, using four toys — namely the Stronic Eins from Fun Factory — that propel themselves forward at one-and-a-half miles per hour. Fun Factory, the maker of the Stronic, says it hopes to institutionalize the game soon.

The Shop at Museum of Sex In NYC was the first to host a Stronic Race during a launch party in February. Fun Factory said it will be at the Museum again in June during Pride Week for the launch of Stronic Zwei (Stronic 2), which the HuffPost Weird News says it will attend to raise money for an LGBT event.

Carol Queen from the Good Vibrations chain of retail stores is currently speaking with Fun Factory about organizing Stronic races during her annual Masturbate-a-Thon. “What a great new participant sport,” Queen says, “though not as great as the participant sport the Stronic was initially designed for, if you get what I mean. What I love most about this new technology is that it finally allows users to enjoy a thrusting sensation, not just vibration.”

In West Hollywood, the Pleasure Chest is hosting a series of races in the fall and promoting the game on its blog.

“It’s one the most popular videos on our blog,” Pleasure Chest Director of Development Kristen Tribby said. “The racing game is a clever way to showcase the unique thrusting technology and brilliant design of the Fun Factory Stronic.”

Frederic Walme, CEO of Fun Factory USA, said, “it’s not the most cerebral game but at least it’s more complex than Keno, and it gets people really riled up.”

Fun Factory said it is looking to partner with casinos to introduce recurring “Stronic Sex Toy Race” nights in gambling states or as an activity for fundraising events.
