SAN FRANCISCO — Good Vibrations has announced the first of many #40YearsOfPleasure events: Bling My Vibe! — an arty, crafty contest that invites customers and sex community luminaries to make art, have fun, and celebrate the vibrator.

Forty years ago this month, sex educator and activist Joani Blank founded Good Vibrations in San Francisco. Today Good Vibes has nine stores on two coasts.

Bling My Vibe! invites sex and art celebrities, as well as members of the public, to make an art piece using a simple Smoothie vibrator. The vibrator base will be available at all GV stores for $5 from March 1 through April 30 — while supplies last.

Good Vibes will donate a dollar of those sales directly to its GiVe program to support community sexual health initiatives — this season’s recipients are Planned Parenthood of Northern California and the Transgender Law Center.

Once the artist has their vibe, they can paint it, decoupage it, bejewel it, sew it an outfit, or otherwise get creative. The “arted- and tarted-up vibes” will be displayed at the Good Vibrations Polk Street store during the months of April and May.

Winners will be announced during Good Vibes’ May Masturbation Month celebration. The top three winners will receive a Good Vibrations gift basket/gift card combo valued at $300, $200, and $100 respectively.??

For those wanting encouragement, inspiration, or simply a fun and artsy social outing, Good Vibrations is hosting two special Bling My Vibe Workshops at the Polk Street Good Vibrations for those who want to make vibrator creations together. “We’ll have a vibrator ready to bling, plus hot glue guns and lots of bling to put onto them,” says Good Vibes. Participants can bring their own supplies too. Hosted by staff sexologist (and arty collagist) Dr. Carol Queen, the March workshop will be co-hosted by textile artist Jack Davis and the April event by Dottie Lux of Red Hots Burlesque. Tickets to the workshops are available here and here.

The deadline for Bling My Vibe contest submissions is May 10, and can be dropped off at any GV retail location or mailed to: Good Vibrations Bling My Vibe, 1800 Sutter St., Ste. 700,?Concord, CA 94520.

To order a Smoothie base (vibrator), call (800) 289-8423.
