People receive a free vibrator sex toy which was being distributed by the Trojan condom company from their "Pleasure Carts" in New York City.

New York -

Frustrated New Yorkers will get their buzz back on Thursday after the mayor's office agreed not to pull the plug on a free giveaway of vibrators.

Condoms giant Trojan brought traffic to a halt late on Wednesday with the sex toys publicity stunt that reportedly lured hundreds of people in lower Manhattan.

The action had barely started before Mayor Michael Bloomberg's office interrupted, citing activity “which impeded pedestrian and street traffic”.

By Thursday morning, though, the city had a smile back on its face. Trojan will be allowed to resume its giveaway “later today with proper permits,” Bloomberg's office said.

According to a statement from the company, some 10 000 Trojan vibrators are to be distributed from hot dog-style street carts, “the largest-ever vibrator giveaway of its kind”. - Sapa-AFP
