After the city of New York shut down Trojan’s “Pleasure Carts” earlier this week, the sex toy and condom giveaway was back up and running on Thursday.

Mayor’s Bloomberg’s office shut down the operation on Wednesday, citing a lack of permits.

But the operation was buzzing again on Thursday night, with the two hot dog-style carts reportedly handing out over 4,000 Pulse and Tri-Phoria vibrators on a first come, first served basis in the Meatpacking District.

“Yesterday was just the foreplay,” Trojan wrote on its Facebook page on Thursday. “[O]ur toe-curling, record breaking Trojan Vibes giveaway will climax today at 5pm. With official NYC permits in hand (thanks City of New York!), the Trojan Vibrations Pleasure Carts have reloaded and will be serving up pleasure tonight from 5-7 pm in the Meatpacking District on the corner of 14th Street and 9th Avenue.”

“Thank you for coming out to the Trojan Vibrations Pleasure Cart and helping us create huge buzz about vibrators and pleasure throughout NYC!” the company added in a later post. “New Yorkers, you really proved you are the city that never sleeps on pleasure. You really helped us go out with a bang!”
