Tom of Finland Media Blitz Lands NYTimes, GQ and V Magazine Showcase

Artist’s Los Angeles home & its erotic artifacts highlighted in top national media

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. – March 2, 2016 – XR Brands’ Tom of Finland Pleasure Tools received a unique showcase in some of the country’s most notable news and culture media, following the release of the latest Tom of Finland photography book, published by Rizzoli and edited by Michael Reynolds. In several front-page photo galleries sits KAKE’s Cock, a hand-sculpted limited edition rendition of one of Tom of Finland’s most famous characters, displayed among other elements and artifacts from the legendary artist’s life and career.

KAKE’s massive penis was one of the biggest that Tom of Finland ever penciled and was chosen as the centerpiece for the artist’s signature sex toy and accessories collection made by XR Brands. The hyper-realistic rendering gave fans around the world a one-of-a-kind collector’s piece that remains as much a work of art as an object of pleasure – and now KAKE’s Cock can be enjoyed in full color online at GQ, V Magazine and the New York Times.

“KAKE was one of the most featured characters in Tom of Finland’s body of work and epitomized the ultimate Tom of Finland man: hyper-masculine, proudly uninhibited, and hung with an enormous and perfectly proportioned penis,” XR Brands Director of Sales Rebecca Weinberg said. “It was imperative that we capture KAKE’s member with intricate detail and it’s exciting to see it showcased in so many Tom of Finland tributes. We worked hard with Tom of Finland Foundation to nail the design and we’re all so proud of the result – and the national media attention it’s getting!”

This media blitz follows the release of “Tom House: Tom of Finland in Los Angeles,” a photography book that gives an immersive glimpse into the home of historic artist Touko Laaksonen, aka Tom of Finland.

KAKE’s Cock is made of solid silver-toned silicone and packaged in an impressive acrylic display box with a copy of the Tom of Finland print from which it was sculpted.
