(Newser) – Joining a host of firms rewarding US voters, a sex-toy chain is giving out self-pleasuring devices to customers who have stopped at the polls, MSNBC reports. Men get “Maverick” sleeves: “He’s always there to lend a hand, he works for every man, and he bucks the status quo.” Women can take home “Silver Bullet” vibrators, “a great stress-reliever during these troubled economic times!”

The Babeland chain, with outlets in New York, Los Angeles, and Seattle, is happy to donate to Democrats and Republicans alike. “Sex crosses party lines,” says a rep. Meanwhile, Starbucks is offering voters free coffee and Krispy Kreme is donating red, white, and blue doughnuts. And for free ice cream, stop by a Ben and Jerry’s from 5-8 pm—you don’t even have to vote.
