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.

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.”
