This isn’t your grandmother’s bingo. We sure hope not, anyway.
A Bedford-Stuyvesant entertainment producer is putting a titillating twist on bingo at the Flat in Williamsburg on Feb. 24. In Sex Toy Bingo, players do not win money or bar tabs — they win sex toys. The goal of the game is to encourage players to embrace their sexuality without judgment or fear, said the game’s creator.
“We live in a world where sex positivity is frowned upon,” said organizer and co-host Bex Cellent. “There is a difference between oversexualization and sex positivity, and I am trying to hone in on that.” Also, it’s just funny.
“Bingo is the most innocent game in the world. Your grandma plays it,” said Cellent, who has hosted two previous Sex Toy Bingo nights. “The juxtaposition between the two is neat.”
The game itself is played in the usual way, but Cellent said she has spiced it up with some salacious sayings, including “premature e-bingulaton” for those who call “bingo” early but have not won, and unique house rules, including a sudden-death sex trivia playoff in the case of multiple winners of a match.
Cellent and her co-host will lead 10 or 11 rounds of Sex Toy Bingo in one sitting, while a disc jockey spins sexy tunes including Peaches’ “F--- the Pain Away,” Ginuwine’s “Pony,” and “Splash Way” by Ludicrious.
Prizes up for grabs will include nipple clamps, bondage tape, and chocolate body butter, Cellent said. But the rewards aren’t just for the ladies — one of the prizes available is a Fleshlight, famous for being a man’s best pal.
