Trojan released a new line of lubricants and as a way to promote it, invited everyone to participate in the World’s Largest Simultaneous Orgasm. To be part of this record-breaker, you just needed to be having sex (or doing your thing solo, I suppose) at 10 p.m. EST last Friday. Did it work? Did they break the record? No way to know. Guinness World Records didn’t station researchers with synchronized watches in every bedroom. Still, it was a great excuse to talk someone into having sex with you.
For 69 lucky couples, Trojan hosted an event at New York’s swanky Conrad Hotel to commemorate the momentous (orgasmic) occasion. My girlfriend and I were invited to participate so I could cover it for Guy Code Blog. I’ve been to a bunch of unusual media events, but this one takes the prize…in a good way.
They reserved 69 rooms and held a cocktail hour at the hotel bar for the couples. I felt uncomfortable walking into the party (luckily, I’ll do just about anything for an open bar). I thought the vibe would be that of an awkward sex party, right before the orgy starts. I’ve never been to one but it’s easy enough to imagine.
I was wrong, luckily. Everyone just mingled like any regular party. Still, in the back of my mind, I couldn’t help thinking, “All of these people are going to be having sex pretty soon.”
At 8:30, the open bar was abruptly shut down and that’s when everyone remembered what we were there to do. There were a number of these odd interactions: “Well, uh, guess we gotta get to it. What’d you say your name was again? Scott? Oh yeah, sure, I’ll take your business card. OK, well, uh, good luck tonight, I guess.”
Upon returning to our hotel room, my girlfriend and I started talking about what some of the couples must look like having sex — even though we just met them. How could we not? We knew it was happening right through our walls.
Finally, we did our best to clear our minds of the other 68 couples and tried to hit the 10 p.m. blast-off. We were given complementary bottles of the new Trojan Lubricants and decided to use the one marked “Arouse & Intensifies.” It did the job. My girlfriend liked how it wasn’t sticky like others she’s used. And when we were driving away the next day, she said out of the blue, “My vagina has no memory we had sex last night. Usually I can feel it. Guess that stuff worked.”
