"Make Hay" While the Sun Shines with the World's First Solar-Powered Vibe!

Good Vibrations Advises, "Throw Away Your Batteries!"

San Francisco, CA -- April 16, 2004 -- Good Vibrations, San Francisco's women-owned and -operated sex toy, book and video cooperative is tickled to announce the release of the world's first solar-powered vibrator.

Simple and discreet, the Solar Vibe redefines user-friendly high tech: it is whisper-quiet, but powerful, providing a strong, constant vibration; the Solar Vibe is technologically advanced, and yet incredibly easy to charge and use. Best of all, never again will you need to buy another battery for your vibrator!

Approximately the same size and shape as a cell phone, the power pack is a breeze to charge: slide back the cover, flip it under the unit and place the controller in full light. The Solar Vibe's clever design will fool others into thinking you are simply juicing up your cell phone -- you can even charge your vibrator at work, with no one the wiser.

"The Solar Vibe is a fabulous addition to our line of products," says Dr. Carol Queen, author, sexual health advocate and staff Sexologist at Good Vibrations. "What could be more sexually liberating and ecologically sound than a vibrator powered by solar energy?"

Controlled by a multi-speed power pack that can be charged with natural or artificial light, the Solar Vibe is perfect for people who regularly camp, vacation or travel -- especially to countries that utilize different power wattages -- or for anyone who would prefer to use alternative, environmentally friendly sources of energy.

Although it is sold with a 2" long, 5/8" in diameter bullet-shaped micro-massager, the Solar Vibe was designed to be used with almost any interchangeable, plug-in vibrator, such as Good Vibrations' Powerhouse Bullet, Pink Pearl or Silver Bullet vibes. When fully charged, the vibrator will operate for up to two-and-half hours at three speeds.
