CalExotics is offering free “adult” coloring pages during the pandemic. The coloring pages, which feature the black-and-white outlines of vibrators, adult toys and other CalExotics graphics, are available for people over the age of 18 looking for a new and calming activity during this time of uncertainty. The pages, which are being promoted on CalExotics’ social media, can be downloaded at www.calexotics.com/adult-coloring

“Now more than ever, it’s important for our customers and followers to find ways to calm down, relax and be present for themselves and others,” says Nichole Grossmann, director of marketing at CalExotics. “For some, that may mean taking a long walk outside, drawing a bubble bath, or scheduling time for sex and/or masturbation. For others, that may very well mean sitting down for 30 minutes to color – or any combination of those things.” 

According to the Cleveland Clinic, coloring can be therapeutic for adults who are experiencing stress because it helps relax their brains. It does this by bringing attention to the present moment, similar to meditation, and provides a low-stakes activity with no real consequence. In other words, if you screw up, it’s OK! This can be incredibly rewarding and anxiety-reducing for people. 

“Masturbation has also been proven to regulate stress and reduce anxiety,” adds Grossmann. “And while masturbation is our area of expertise, of course, CalExotics wanted to provide another thoughtful and free option for people to de-stress during this time as a sign of unity. We’re all in this together.” 

CalExotics has announced a coloring contest on social media in conjunction with the new coloring pages, as well. CalExotics’ followers who submit their masterpieces using hashtag #calexoticscoloringcontest and tag @calexotics, three friends and their favorite adult store, will be entered to win their favorite product from the collections featured on the coloring pages (Naughty Bits, Hype, Mini Marvels and California Dreaming). The contest will end on April 28, 2020 at 12 a.m. PST.
