Metro Detroit sex toy company offering free vibrators to furloughed government employees

DETROIT — It's marketing genius.

Tom Nardone of Birmingham, the founder of the Detroit Mower Gang, a prolific pumpkin carver, bulletproof vest manufacturer, a married father of three and the creator of a successful Troy-based sex toy business named PriveCo, has harnessed the federal government shutdown to bolster name recognition for his company's website, vibrators.com.

For as long as the government is closed, his company is offering 200 free vibrators per day to furloughed government employees.

News of the offer has already been picked up by national women's magazine publisher Cosmopolitan. 

Nardone said this in a comment he left on a Cosmopolitan.com post about his offer:

Hi! I'm Tom from Vibrators.com. Thanks for posting about us. We are going to fill as many orders as we can. We figure we can ship out 200 or so a day without slowing down the shipments of other customers. So, if you are bored with no work to do, order one. It really is free.

As of about 9:15 p.m. Friday, Nadone posted on his Facebook page that 40 orders had been filled.

"Are you a federal employee that has been deemed non-essential?" the Vibrators.com website asks. "Do you have a little too much time on your hands and nothing to do? Is the recent government shutdown to blame?

"As vibrator enthusiasts, we want everyone to experience the pleasure that a nice vibrator can bring to partners and individuals. Besides, we know you have some free time, why not try something new?"

Nardone told AVN.com: "We are very picky about what products we sell and ship. Compared to any other free gift, I think our free vibrator is a great item."

WIC and food stamps are funded differently. Only WIC is being affected. I know a lot of people who just couldn't breast feed and the formula really helps. All the food actually, it's all nutritious and it's a damn shame these rethuglicans are behaving this way

North Carolina Becomes First State To Cut Its Welfare Programs Due To Government Shutdown

By Will Hagle, Tue, October 15, 2013

North Carolina has become the first state to cease processing applications for its welfare program, the state-wide version of the national Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), in response to the government shutdown.

If the government is not reopened by November, those currently enrolled in the welfare program will not receive their benefits. Operations are scheduled to continue as normal throughout the month of October, despite the continued shutdown. This news affects over 20,000 of North Carolina’s residents that are currently enrolled in the program, as well as all those attempting to apply for the benefits. 

Although North Carolina is the first state to officially announce plans to end its TANF funding, the federal government actually cut spending for TANF programs nationwide when the shutdown began. All other states aside from North Carolina continue to fund the programs using state money. 

According to the Charlotte Observer, most states have not yet stopped TANF funding because the federal government, specifically the U.S. Health and Human Services Family Assistance Office, had promised them before October 1st they would receive a reimbursement were a shutdown to occur. 

The Charlotte publication argues that the failure continue funding TANF despite the shutdown is an “unnecessary" a political move by the state’s anti-welfare proponents. The state had previously been the only one in the nation to cut its Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Food and Nutrition service, an action that it quickly reversed.

With talks in the White House and Congress appearing to gain traction, it’s unlikely that any of the TANF benefits will truly be halted in the state, but North Carolina’s decision does exemplify growing concerns about the consequences of a prolonged shutdown.

While many impoverished residents greatly benefit from North Carolina’s TANF programs, the success of the programs has declined in recent years. Still, the program’s benefits have decreased poverty by at least 0.3%, which equals hundreds of thousands of individuals. If the government shutdown continues and the state’s TANF benefits are no longer provided, many people would experience unfortunate, real effects.
