So it seems like feelings might have been running a little high at this time for people to want to bid on Lelo toys, we are planning a Christmas auction with all kinds of fun products and that is where our Lelo toys are headed at the moment. So watch this space!
Last week we were auctioning Pride Dildos for the Pulse Victims Fund… This week we’re hoping to do the same for Women’s Refuge Services in London ( we’re on a roll! 😉
So, what’s going on? Well, we hope you read our thoughts on Lelo getting into bed with Charlie Sheen, but if not, here’s the low-down:
Lelo, the most famous luxury toy designers in the world, have always been female-friendly. But by using Charlie Sheen, given his long & unapologetic history of domestic violence, as brand ambassador their new condom, this has called their direction into doubt.
At the posh Hex launch, everybody was presented with a stunning Lelo goody bag, each containing a Tiani Couples Vibrator, which features a 24 carat gold band. It’s an amazing toy! But as a message to Lelo about what we and many others feel about their dubious choice of spokeperson, we wanted to do something to redress/ address the situation.
So, we decided to auction off Lelo Goodie Bags and donate funds raised to Solace Women’s Aid.
Paisley Gilmour, who has also written all about Charlie Sheen & LELO link-up for Reveal Magazine’s sex blog , also wanted to make a point. She heard about our auction and swiftly posted her own Lelo Goodie bag to us to add to it – thank you Paisley! x
Solace Women’s Aid is an independent charity working across London, providing life-saving support to more than 10,000 women and children survivors of domestic and sexual violence a year. So the money could not be going to a more relevant cause. This is for charity, so there is a reserve but you could still get an amazing luxury toy for a great price.
