The sex booth, named ‘GuyFi’ and located on 28th St. and 5th Avenues,serves as a mid-workday stress reliever outlet.
The booth was is an out-of-service telephone kiosk that has a black curtain, a folding chair, and a laptop computer.
GuyFi’s creation was inspired by a Time Out survey, which concluded that 39% of the New York men questioned admitted to masturbating while at work.
A representative of Hot Octupuss said in a statement that: ‘the brand is not actively encouraging people to masturbate in public as that is an illegal offense.’
A press release by the company said that the booth was created to ‘take this habit out of the office and into a more suitable environment designed to give the busy Manhattan man the privacy, and the high-speed Internet connection, he deserves.’
“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”, says Adam Lewis, Hot Octopuss co-founder.
