From now on, women can purchase a Womanizer and insure it at the same time – thus protecting against any contingencies that may not be covered by the warranty.
German based insurance company Hepster now offers the worlds first sex toy insurance. When you buy a Womanizer, you will get the option to insure it for €20 per year. The insurance is similar to the ones that are offered with mobile phones. It covers for damages and theft. If you use the wrong personal lube, for instance, or your toy falls and breaks, it will be covered by the insurance.
Only in Germany first
“The idea for sex toy insurance came to us when one of our colleagues told us about the unfortunate end to her surfing vacation. On the last evening of her trip, she and her friends were celebrating with another group of girls in her hotel room. Once everybody had left, she realized someone had stolen her Womanizer. At first this made us all laugh, but after looking closer, we saw an obvious problem had been revealed. Even when the Womanizer is covered by the warranty against damages, a protection against unforeseen issues like theft is missing. The loss of an item can hurt a lot, especially with sex toys, which often sit in a mid to high price range. So, with that came the idea of the first insurance for sex toys in the world.” – Hanna Bachmann, Co-founder of hepster, on the collaboration.
“We often have customers write to us, whose Womanizers have met an unfortunate end through external, often bizarre, incidents – for example, chewed up by a dog. All of these cases were not covered by the warranty. We had already been considering the integration of insurance-based protections. When hepster got in contact with us, we were enthusiastic about the idea and the chance to work together. That was the birth of our sex toy insurance.” – Johanna Rief, Head of Communications at Womanizer
The insurance will be tested in Germany first. If that is successful, it will be possible to close the insurance in all other countries in the world.
