With the release of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie coming out this Valentine’s Day, we felt it was appropriate to highlight Sex Toys in Hollywood for our blog this month. Sex toys and exploring in (and out!) the bedroom are becoming less taboo in today’s society. While 10 years ago there weren’t any vibrating cockrings for sale at your local Walgreens, in popular culture today we see and hear about sex toys, vibrators, fleshlights (etc!) more widespread and frequently. From movies, to magazines, to tv shows, let’s celebrate and highlight some of the sex toys in Hollywood!
Here are some of the many sex toys in Hollywood we found:
Me, Myself and Irene
Jim Carrey and Renee Zellweger star in this hugely successful comedy. Where is the sex toy? Jim Carrey finds a dildo in the trunk of Renee’s car!
Zack and Miri Make a Porno
While this movie’s subject is sexual already, one part in particular is our favorite sex toy scene: Zack looks on Miri’s computer to see she was shopping for a new vibrator. He proceeds to search for other sex toys and finds the Fleshlight. Check it out:
Burn After Reading
George Clooney made his own Fucking Machine in this movie! The dildo featured is the Vibratex Silky..Check out the hilarious clip:
Sex in The City
One of the first TV Shows to feature sex toys. These scenes encouraged women to masturbate! Samantha returned her broken Magic Wand and Carrie purchased a Rabbit Pearl vibrator from Vibratex. We carry both of these products at Tulip, always in-stock and popular favorites. Sex toys in Hollwood to our bedooms!
You gotta love Marla Singer’s response to Tyler’s look at the dildo on her dresser, “Don’t worry. It’s not a threat to you.”
On the TV show, “The View”, Barbara Walters admitted to owning and using a vibrator she named “Selfie”. What a wonderful thing for a woman in her 80s to announce on television that she still has sex and wants orgasms. Yay for Barbara!
You gotta love what Eva Longoria told Self Magazine in a 2005 interview, “I didn’t begin enjoying sex until I started masturbating. Before that, I really wasn’t sexual. I bought my first vibrator three years ago. It’s a shame I didn’t discover it sooner. Now I give Rabbit vibrators to all my girlfriends. They scream when they unwrap it. The best gift I can give them is an orgasm.” Nothing better than the gift than keeps on giving!
Maggie Gyllenhaal & Hysteria
The movie Hysteria sheds light on the history of the vibrator and on a vintage medical diagnosis in women called “Hysteria”. This movie is a must-see!! Maggie Gyllenhaal spoke about her very extensive personal vibrator collection and how she shares them with her friends! She says she has an “incredible [vibrator] collection, and I actually use like one or two of them. I lend them to my friends, and they’ll take them for six months at a time.” (Tulip says: We don’t endorse sharing toys. We advise that if you’re going to share, only share toys that are made of non-porous materials (100% silicone) and fully disinfect by boiling for at least 5 minutes)
The Ugly Truth
Katherine Heigl puts a wireless remote control vibrator in her panties for a date. The date, whom she works with ends up taking her to a business meeting instead and a kid ends up finding the remote!
That’s it for some of our favorite sex toys in Hollywood! And remember, coming this Valentine’s Day is Fifty Shades of Grey the Movie: Tulip has all of the 50 shades collection, Fetish, and Bondage for you to explore!
