Masturbation booth erected in NYC

18 January 2016, 20:53

A sex toy company in New York has created the first ever masturbation booth, where men can pop in for a few minutes of some midday 'stress relief'.

The booth was created in response to a survey which concluded that 39% of the men it questioned admitted to masturbating at work. 

The 'GuyFi' booth, which comes equipped with a chair, laptop, wifi connection and a curtain, intends to take the act of of the office and into a more private, well-equipped space.

Hot Octopuss co-founder Adam Lewis explained the necessity of taking a break at work, saying “there’s no denying that working a nine to five job can be stressful on both your mind and body, especially in a non-stop city like Manhattan. It’s really important for guys to look after themselves so that they can stay healthy and focus properly on the task in hand."

Over 100 men used the renovated phone booth on its first day, and a representative later stated that “the brand is not actively encouraging people to masturbate in public as that is an illegal offence.”

Users on Twitter raised a few concerns about the new NYC pop-up:
