Is That A Vibrator Or Are You Just Having A Happy Ride?

Aug 03, 13 Is That A Vibrator Or Are You Just Having A Happy Ride?

Lots of people are trying to find ways to motivate themselves to be healthier. Some are trying to find ways to reduce their carbon footprint. And another subset just wants to get off as often as they can.

Put them all together and you get the latest adult sex toy, the Happy Ride vibrating bicycle seat.

Vibrators have come a long way in the last two hundred years. Psychology Today reports the initial reason for the development of vibrators was as a “labor-saving device to spare their hands the fatigue they developed giving handjobs to a steady stream of 19th century ladies who suffered from “hysteria,” a vaguely defined ailment easily recognizable today as sexual frustration.” I’m sorry; I got the giggles just typing that in. Can you imagine going to your general practitioner today for a finger diddle?  HAH!

You really should read that whole article, the description of steam-driven dildos alone is worth it. But let’s fast forward to 2013. Vibrators are now the sex toy of distinction. You don’t go to your doctor, or your Sears and Roebuck catalog to buy them (oh yes, you could!), but you can buy them on Amazon or any number of specialty sites or stores.

The Daily Mail reports that the Happy Ride is a powerful vibrator built into a bicycle seat cover. It is made with a padded lining, black nylon fabric exterior, and a powerful vibrator with multiple settings.

There is a pocket in the back of the seat cover with an attached control panel. You can raise or lower the vibration setting, as you desire, or turn it off entirely if you need to. But honestly, would you really turn it off?  You set it up, tuck the controller back in the pocket and peddle away to happiness.

SexShop365 in the UK is the store behind Happy Ride. Claire Bowden says the demand for exercise related sex toys, such as kegal balls, has increased dramatically since the release of The Fifty Shades of Gray books. Since nearly 10 percent of the population now bikes to work on a regular basis, the Happy Ride seat cover seemed like a no-brainer.

“Thanks to the UK’s cycling boom and the building obsession around next year’s Fifty Shades Of Grey movie, both adult toys and cycling are firmly on the public radar. It was only a matter of time before the two were combined to make your daily cycle even more pleasurable.”

The Happy Ride isn’t terribly expensive; it runs about $43.00 USD. I have no clue what shipping would be from the UK, but I’m thinking it just might be worth it. The Happy Ride might be enough to get me back on my bike, for sure.
