How to Dress Up Your Vibrator

Blinged vibes from Good VIbrations March 2017 workshop

The orgasm experts at Good Vibrations are celebrating 40 years as a diverse and sex positive and non-judgmental, sex toy retailer.  Part of the celebration involves a contest on who can best dress-up or bedazzle their favorite vibrator.

As GoodVibes puts it:
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 1st through April 30th – while supplies last! (We donate a dollar of that directly to our GiVe program to support community sexual health initiatives.) Once you have your vibe, paint it, decoupage it, bejewel it, sew it an outfit, or otherwise get creative. These 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 at a special awards event on May 21st, 2017! Which is the best-blinged vibrator of them all? The top three winners will receive a Good Vibrations gift basket/gift card combo valued at $300, $200, and $100 respectively.

The last time we did a contest like this, the results were amazing! Get a load of our 2013 winners and runners-up below.
