It's happened again! Another viral media flare-up of interest in our crazy Vajankle. Just last week it was featured on Buzzfeed's 23 Bizarre Sex Toys That’ll Confuse The Hell Out Of You. I'll tell you what, the Vajankle is really one of the least bizarre items on that list! Good grief!
In case you haven't caught one of the multiple reviews about the Vajankle, here's the story:
A couple of years ago, one of our foot buyers came back to us and asked for a special project. He said that he would like to see and caress the sole of the foot while masturbating with the foot. Once Matt had worked out the mechanics of just what this meant, he decided it was a funny and doable project. We prototyped it for the customer, who was very excited to see his sexy foot dream come true in the form of a style A short left foot with a vagina in the ankle. He did request the left foot specifically.
When we were trying to name the product, we were most disappointed to find that someone else is already producing a PussyFoot, which was of course the obvious first-choice name. One night, when sitting around with friends we were asked what our most bizarre project was, so this item came up. Our friend, upon hearing our naming dilemma, very sensibly repeated "so, it's a foot with a vagina in the ankle.... A Vajankle!" And so it was born (with the "g" replaced with a "j" for easier reading and pronunciation).
Aside from the obvious, the Vajankle can be used as a pencil holder, a vase, or a showy door stop. I am sure there are plenty of other use ideas. We even have one in the studio that was signed by Ron Jeremy at Bawdy Storytelling in LA. Later this year we're going to do a Vajankle auction of one-of-a-kind handmade Vajankles in exotic styles by our employees. Keep an eye out for that!
So now you know, that's the history of our quirkiest product. Well, maybe not the quirkiest now that we have the Succupuss...
