San Francisco, CA -- (August 17, 2010): Good Vibrations (goodvibes.com)is proud to sponsor the premiere of the new documentary Hugh Hefner: Playboy, Activist, and Rebel at the Lumiere Theatre in San Francisco on Friday, August 20th. Early evening show attendees will have a chance via random drawing to receive a Good Vibrations goodie bag valued at $150, and first customers will receive Good Vibrations sample giveaways and discount cards from the legendary San Francisco-based company that takes pride in providing accurate information on sexuality and toys for grown-ups.
Much more than just the pajama-clad king of the Playboy empire, Hugh Hefner was an outspoken activist in the realm of first amendment rights, women’s reproductive rights, civil rights, and sexual freedoms. A champion of literature and the arts, Hefner fuelled the sexual revolution and revolutionized mainstream erotic media. With the first publication of Playboy Magazine in 1953, Hefner challenged tradition and championed the pursuit of pleasure.
“Every man should have a Magic Wand. It's a very good vibrator.” So said Hefner in Esquire Magazine, and Good Vibrations couldn’t agree more. Seen on the bedside table in an episode of his reality show “Girls Next Door”, viewers noted that it was not on his side of the bed. Good Vibrations recommends a Magic Wand for every bedside table and will include a Magic Wand and Rabbit Habit Vibrator in the goodie bag for the San Francisco film premiere.
Entertaining and surprising, the Hugh Hefner documentary features a wide range of interviews with a fascinating cast of American pop culture icons and serves as a distinctive lens thorough which to examine the last sixty years of sex in America. Directed by Brigitte Berman, Academy Award winner for the documentary feature Artie Shaw: Time Is All You've Got, this film includes impressive musical performances and insights into the cultural movement.
Conveniently located just around the corner from the Lumiere Theatre, Good Vibrations’ Polk Street Store will be featuring the Magic Wand for all those inspired by Hefner’s remarkable life.
