This Woman Is Selling Pen*s Masks And People Are Going Nuts
Reading Time: 2 minutes
People who want to share their sense of humor during the coronavirus pandemic can now do so with a penis face mask. The trend started when Salt Lake City mom Mindy Vincent posted her funny mask on Facebook.
The mask’s pattern has penises all over it, to remind people when they’re standing too close. Mindy’s mask was such a hit that she’s now selling them and donating all the proceeds to charity.
Mom Wears Penis Mask During Coronavirus Pandemic
“When someone tells me my mask has penises on it, I will kindly let them know this is how I determine they are too close, kindly back the f - - k up,” Mindy wrote of her mask.
Health officials have advised people to wear face coverings out in public and practice social distancing by standing six feet apart. Mindy’s mask kills two birds with one stone, as she protects herself and others, while reminding people to stand back.
Mindy’s post was so popular that she’s now selling the masks online. “It was never my intention to sell masks,” she told the New York Post. But her “genius son” gave her the idea to raise money for her non-profit.
Project Penis Mask Is Raising Money For Charity
Mindy’s face mask initiative is called Project Penis Mask. You can buy a “Cockblock Corona Mask” for $20 in one of several patterns, including one featuring vaginas. They’re available on the website for the Utah Harm Reduction Coalition.
That’s Mindy’s syringe exchange non-profit, which aims to reduce “health and social harms associated with substance use.” According to the New York Post, as of April 16, the project had sold 5,400 face masks and raised $56,000. Mindy apparently has enough fabric to make 19,000 masks. The first batch sold out in an hour.
“So many people just don’t have a very good sense of humor these days,” Mindy said in an Instagram video after her mask went viral. “And I just love that there are at least 150,000 people in the world that would also be willing to wear dicks on their face out in public.”
