NEW YORK — Lovehoney has partnered with the masterminds behind Comedy Central's "Broad City" to launch a new collection of pleasure products.
The collaboration will mark the first time Lovehoney has partnered with a TV show.
“For us working with a show of Broad City’s calibre was a no-brainer and we’re delighted to be working with Comedy Central,” said Neal Slateford, Lovehoney’s co-founder. “The range perfectly encapsulates what the show is all about: fun and energy.
“We’re delighted with how the products represent Abbi and Ilana’s humor, with each item harking back to hilarious episodes in the girls’ lives,” Slateford continued. “The hero products for us are the kegel balls, Nature’s Natural Pocket: fans will know the exact moment in the show that these pleasure balls, with their secret ‘stash’ pocket is all about!”

The story centers around two best friends navigating their twenties in New York City, whose adventures always lead down unexpected and outlandish paths.
