Babeland Gets the Vibe Out

The polls may be jammed with voting-happy New Yorkers today, but the line to get free silver bullet vibes or "Maverick" penis sleeves is short at Babeland in Soho. That doesn't mean that the vibrator-for-a-vote promotion wasn't a success: a Babeland staffer informed us that there was a line of eager patriots waiting for the store to open at 11am, and by noon they had given out 40 or so freebies. Indeed, while we were taking photos of the silver bullet, four ladies showed up to pick up one of their own. Woman in line behind us, "This is so much better than a free cup of coffee." Since many local polling centers aren't giving out stickers, Babeland (and others) are going to have to trust that "just voted" flush.
