Marilyn Monroe special edition Womanizer Classic 2 clit stimulator now available at Lovehoney
Lovehoney has released a Marilyn Monroe-branded version of its popular Womanizer Classic 2 clit stimulator, in collaboration with the late actress, singer and model’s estate.
The Womanizer Marilyn Monroe Special Edition comes in four designs – white marble, black marble, mint and vivid red – with the extent of Monroe’s involvement seemingly limited to her picture and signature featuring on its packaging.
Monroe, the defining US female sex symbol of her era, died in 1962, long before sophisticated clit-stimulating sextech devices were envisaged. It’s not known whether she was a fan of sex toys in general, but Lovehoney suggested that the collaboration with her estate had been geared up due to her status as an empowering female icon.
“Marilyn’s powerful and positive legacy is the inspiration for the gorgeously silhouetted and eminently pleasurable Womanizer toy in four indulgent colors that are, like Marilyn, breathtakingly elegant and special,” Lovehoney says.
Female celebrity sextech product collaborations have become common in recent years, with the likes of model and actor Cara Delevingne and singer/actors Lily Allen and Demi Lovato releasing their own sex toy ranges. Lovehoney’s collaboration with the Monroe estate is believed to be the first sextech endorsement from a historical celebrity.
The launch seems to be having the intended marketing whack, with Cosmopolitan gushing about the Womanizer Marilyn Monroe Special Edition.
“Fast-forward to 2022 and we think you’ll agree that, were Ms Monroe alive today, she would in fact declare that sex toys are her real gal pals, and clit-stimulation vibes would most definitely be her BFF,” the title imagined.
Like the Womanizer Classic 2, the Monroe-branded version features ten intensity levels of suction and pulsing air waves. It currently sells for $129.
