NEW YORK — Fleshlight will showcase its collection of masturbators, vibrators and other high-quality pleasure toys at Sex Expo New York 2018, to be held the weekend of Sept. 22-23 at the Brooklyn Expo Center.
Presented by premier camming platform Chaturbate, the two-day event will include workshops with a wide range of educators and sexual wellness experts along with showcases from top pleasure product manufacturers.
“Fleshlight is excited to be a part of Sex Expo New York 2018,” said Tonja Hoyle, director of sales and business development for Fleshlight’s parent company, Interactive Life Forms. “Our complete sales team will attend: Amy Childers, Andrew Ortega, Christopher Daigler and (myself). The idea of being able to present our products to such a large group of customers, who are just as eager to see us, is thrilling. The trade show is a good way of spreading knowledge and strengthening our consumer relationships.”
Hoyle added, “The Fleshlight team also plans to give back to our Fleshlight fans by holding raffles throughout the Expo. We will distribute information about our new products as well as existing top sellers.”
2018 marks the 20th anniversary of Fleshlight, based in Austin, Texas. Steve Shubin, inventor of the original Fleshlight male masturbator, received a patent for his creation in July 1998 — and Interactive Life Forms went on to build a diverse collection of products ranging from penis pumps, anal devices and cock rings for men to vibrators, Kegel balls and dildos for women.
“We employ a wide variety of men and women who take great pride in the production of the world’s No. 1-selling male masturbator,” Hoyle said. “For the Sex Expo, we plan to bring several top-selling items and new products releases. This is a great opportunity for us to educate our loyal customers on why we are their favorite.”
The Brooklyn Expo Center is located at 72 Noble St. in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint area and is within walking distance of the MTA’s Greenpoint Ave. subway station, which is served by the G Train.
