The announcement marks the conclusion of the product’s Indiegogo campaign, which received significant mainstream attention.
Chung has assumed the title of “The Handie Girl,” and will now serve as the face of the men’s unique masturbation aid.
"I’m super excited to be the very first Handie Girl,” said Angelina Chung. “The people have spoken, and they wanted a spokesmodel for a very intriguing and unique new sex toy, so here I am! I’m looking forward to beginning this journey with The Handie."
During The Handie’s Indiegogo campaign, Chung reports to have vied against dozens of adult stars for the role.
She garnered several thousand fan votes to beat out the competition. In addition to votes cast on TheHandie.com, hardcore fans were able to purchase blocks of votes for their favorite adult performers by supporting The Handie’s Indiegogo campaign.

“It’s great to have Angelina Chung as the first spokesmodel for The Handie,” The Handie inventor Maxx Padilla said. “I think it’s important to have someone representing the brand who’s popular with the fans and also has a great work ethic. Angelina really worked her ass off on social media to win this, and that’s the type of person I want promoting The Handie.”
As The Handie Girl, Chung will appear in online and print ads, as well as videos and commercials.
She will also greet fans and represent The Handie at adult entertainment and novelty expos.
Although The Handie fell short of its crowdfunding goal to allow for mass scale injection molding, those interested can still purchase handmade editions of the glove via TheHandie.com.
“The mass amounts of media coverage, social media inquiries and crowdfunding support we were able to achieve left with increased confidence in The Handie, and its place in the market,” Padilla said. “We’ll be back on Indiegogo with a vengeance in the New Year.”
The Handie is a soft, supple glove designed to allow users to control the grip of their fist — from firm to soft, and the gradient in-between — so they can decide what’s best and most comfortable.
Made from skin-safe, food-grade silicone material, The Handie features a bullet vibrator, self-lubrication system, and an easy-to-clean catcher cup (for sperm).
