A Los Angeles company's product will boldly go where no such product has gone before (that we know of . . . heh-heh).

The place would be space, a.k.a. "The Final Frontier."

The product would be a vibrator.

Gives whole new meaning to Pocket Rocket, no?

SexToy.com, a division of leading Internet adult product distributor Convergene (CNV.com) is leading a team to launch the first vibrator into space on Oct. 8. At least it's the first known vibrator racing toward the heavens--and, no, that is not the lame set up to a Sally Ride joke.

"I have always been into firsts and that is how I made my money," explains CNV.com CEO David "SexToy Dave" Levine in a company release. "I was one of the first on the web selling sex toys, first to have an adult affiliate program, the first to make three appearances on Bravo's hit show Millionaire Matchmaker and now the first online adult business with a space program."

The Vibrating Bullet brand product making the mission is no ordinary vibrator. The toy had to be developed to withstand temperatures of -75 degrees Fahrenheit, conditions 10 times beyond normal cosmic radiation and the elements that are present at an altitude of 100,000 feet, which is three times higher than the cruising altitude of a typical jetliner.

The throbbing stick will be carried into space by a partially solar-powered, partially helium-filled balloon that's 8 feet wide and able to withstand jet stream winds of up to 100 miles per hour for one to three hours. The balloon is expected to traverse up to 100 miles, and SexToy Dave's team expects to retrieve the pleasure maker intact. That's because the balloon will be outfitted with two consumer cell phones running tracking software and an experimental GPS unit.

But, before then, sex toy fans will be able to follow the vibrator in the sky on SexToy.com's new blog, "Chew On This." That's due to the balloon carrying a 1080p HD video camera and a 10MP still camera to capture images that will be sent back to Earth.

That is, we'll see those shots if someone (or some thing) does not intervene first and snatch Momma's little helper. If those egghead dishes collecting sounds from deep space later pick up eerie chatter of "B-b-b-b-b-battlestar Ga-ga-ga-ga-ga-gallactica," SexToy.com will know where to send the bill.

This is the most ridiculous launch I've seen so far. I have never imagined that they will be launching it on space.

He said he was going up to 100 miles. (I may be wrong, but I think it is about 65 miles into space. Perhaps the cosmic rays are gathered around the part of Earth's atmosphere (100,000 feet)?erotic game

Uh, into space? 100,000 feet is not what I think of as being launched into space.

So the new rule of thumb for Hitchhikers will be "Don't forget your towel...or your vibrator!" :-D

And just after reading the title for some reason the song "Good Vibrations" began going through my head.

It said it was going up 100 miles. (I could be wrong but I think it's around 65 miles to space. Maybe the cosmic radiation is gathered around that part of the earth's atmosphere (100,000 ft.) ?

Not up 100 miles, "traverse up to 100 miles" meaning, e.g., launch from Orange County and retrieve somewhere around San Diego or Palm Springs depending on which direction the wind blows.
