‘Broad City’ Is Starting A Sex Toy Line

Just when you started to think good ideas had gone extinct, “Broad City” announces a new line of sex toys.

The “Broad City” twitter page retweeted a tweet Tuesday evening from Lovehoney, a sex toy and lingerie online shop.

The tweet follows an announcement that the season four premiere date has been pushed back by two weeks and, as such, I’m choosing to interpret it as an apology of sorts — a fitting apology from the most sexually adventurous Jewish women on television.

Both Abbi and Ilana have been known to use sex toys onscreen but by far the most memorable of these moments came when Abbi’s character accidentally puts the love of her life’s very expensive dildo in the dishwasher, teaching a generation of young adults to never, ever do that.

While there are no details quite yet regarding the kind of sex toys worthy of a “Broad City” stamp, there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Ilana Glazer would not allow any object short of miracle-inducing to bear her name.
