Hot time in the old vice district this Wednesday
Free vibrators to be given out at Stingaree hot spot
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, pimps and prostitutes prowled San Diego's Stingaree district south of Broadway, roughly bounded by 1st and 5th Streets, and Market and K. This Wednesday, March 27, more modern forms of pleasures of the flesh will be in evidence. Trojan, the venerable old maker of condoms, has diversified into vibrators -- servicing both women and men. From 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Trojan will be handing out free vibrators at the Stingaree, 454 6th Ave. in the Gaslamp, "while supplies last." The vibrators will be handed out from Trojan Vibrations Pleasure Carts, which were modeled after traditional hot dog carts. "The pleasure revolution that swept New York City, D.C., Chicago, Boston, Las Vegas, Miami, and Seattle [is] heading to San Diego," exults Trojan. These products sell for $29.99 to $39.99.
The Stingaree night club bills itself as "a premier destination for celebrity guests and the city's sexiest party goers." It is "home to the hottest San Diego nightlife," it boasts.
