As the GOP heads back to the drawing board (again) in an attempt to revamp the healthcare bill and get the votes needed to move it forward, constituents from all over the country continue to flood the offices of their congresspeople with phone calls, emails, letters, and tweets, voicing their displeasure with the bill and it’s dismantling of our current healthcare system. But sometimes a phone call just isn’t enough. Instead of calling your congressperson, why don’t you send them a vibrator instead?

Show the GOP that you won’t stand for vital health care services for women to be slashed by sending a vibrator right to their office!

Unbound, a company known for it’s selection of adult toys, has launched an initiative to draw attention to the decimation of funding and services that many women rely on for care, like Planned Parenthood and Medicaid. “Vibes for Congress” allows you to send a lovely gift box directly to your congressperson. For $15, they’ll received a vibrator, an educational pamphlet about how the bill affects millions of women around the country, and a message: that we won’t stand by and allow our health care to be ripped away. The best part is, 75% of all proceeds from Vibes for Congress go directly to Planned Parenthood!

1 in 5 women in the US has visited a Planned Parenthood at least once in their lifetime.

The company recommends sending the packages to to congresspeople who are in favor or supportive of the healthcare bill. An Unbound spokesperson tells HuffPost, “The initiative is meant to shed a light on the importance of women’s health in the face of changes that would threaten it, while demonstrating that women will not stay silent in the face of such dire risks.” Slashes to Medicaid in favor of tax breaks for the wealthy and the dogged determination the men who drafted the bill seem to have for defunding Planned Parenthood have made the situation a code-red for millions of women, children, and families who rely on these services to stay healthy. We can no longer sit idly by.

When you select the option to send a vibrator, you’ll be directed to enter your address so Unbound can locate your congressperson. You can also select from a drop-down list of names. For shits and giggles, I chose to send a vibe to everyone’s least favorite turtle in a tie, Mitch McConnell.

A few more quick checkout steps later, and pretty soon good ol’ Mitch will be the recipient of a vibrator, some much-needed educational information on healthcare, and a message that says no way, no how.

I hope his box contains the pinkest, shiniest vibrator in their entire collection!

In all seriousness, the initiative is about getting their attention. So if you’ve got $15 to spare, and want to send more of a message than just a phone call or voicemail, consider participating in Vibes for Congress, and keep the “buzz” against this bill going.
