Inside the $160,000 Oscars Gift Bag: Vibrators, Vacations and More!
This year's "Everyone Wins at the Oscars Nominee Gift Bag," gifted to nominees in the Best Actor/Actress, Best Supporting Actor/Actress and Best Director categories, features over $160,000 worth of gifts including $20,000 worth of free Audi car rentals, a luxury "glamping" experience, and a few racy items like a high-tech vibrator, condoms and an orgasm booster shot.
As for how those last three items made it in the coveted bag, Lash Fary, founder of Distinctive Assets, told us, "I don't really find them surprising or shocking. I truly believe sex and pleasure should be a part of our everyday lives. And because these Oscar nominees can't visit the Pleasure Chest (a local sex toy shop) like you or I without ending up photographed by paparazzi, we simply make access easy for them right from the privacy of their own home."
If $160,000 worth of gifts, sounds like a lot...it actually is. The value of this year's bag is record breaking, thousands more than gift bags from previous years.
