The World's First Public Masturbation Booth Is Now A Thing In New York

by Alya Mooro |

If you're a man in New York city, you now have a place to go if you need to 'relieve stress' (read: shake hands with your 'little man') while you're out and about and it just can't wait till you get home. Yup, London-based sex toy company Hot Octopuss have recently unveiled the 'GuyFi' booth on a street in New York.

The wanking booth - which consists of a black curtain, a folding chair and a laptop computer complete with hi-speed internet - came to existence after a Time Out NY survey found that 39% of New York based men questioned had masturbated at some point at work. Plus there was 699 incidents of public masturbation reported in New York in the last five months of 2015 alone so there's that...

Hot Octopuss co-founder Adam Lewis spoke about the booth in a press release, explaining the imputus behind it and its free use:

'There’s no denying that working a nine to five job can be stressful on both your mind and body, especially in a non-stop city like Manhattan. It’s really important for guys to look after themselves so that they can stay healthy and focus properly on the task in hand... At Hot Octopuss we are all about looking for new solutions to improve everyday life and we feel we’ve done just that with the new GuyFi booth. We hope the city’s men enjoy using the space we’ve created in whatever way they want. It’s completely free of charge… all that we ask is they thank us when they get their promotion!'

A shifty looking queue has yet to appear around the block, but according to Hot Octopuss, 100 men used the booth on its first day in action. They are reportedly now further developing the idea to include more popup booths around the US and even in London.

Granted, neither horniness nor instances of public masturbation are unique to New York city. Nor to men, for that matter. Women will likely be waiting a few more lifetimes before masturbation booths are set up in our honour, though. We wonder what a female masturbation booth would even look like... Here at The Debrief HQ we're calling for an armchair, candles, some battery operated devices and food. Lots of food. You?
