As US covidiots routinely ignore social-distancing measures, one enterprising Utah mother has devised an unorthodox way to ensure that potential coronavirus spreaders stay away: a penis-covered face mask.
Now, her phallic apparatuses are selling like hotcakes.
“It was never my intention to sell masks,” Mindy Vincent tells The Post. She credits her “genius son” for devising the idea to sell them as a way to raise money for the non-profit she runs, the Utah Harm Reduction Coalition in Midvale, Utah.
And it appears Project Penis Mask is paying dividends. The c-blocking covers “sold out within in an hour,” says the mask maven, adding that she’s currently working on another set of masks with the remaining batch of locally sourced fabric.
Vincent first posted about her “#projectpenismask” initiative Thursday in a viral Facebook post with over 400,000 shares and 170,000 reactions.
“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,” writes Vincent, who can be seen sporting one of her phallus-festooned face masks in the accompanying photo.
The campaign might sound sophomoric, but the bizarre anti-COVID-19 couture serves a noble cause.
“We provide syringe exchange services, and we serve the most vulnerable people people, and we can’t not serve them especially during some kind of pandemic,” said Vincent in a viral vlog post Friday. “So I needed some kind of face protection for my staff.”
Indeed, the Utah Harm Reduction Coalition services a variety of COVID-19-susceptible groups, from drug-abusers to those suffering from HIV and hepatitis C, per the site.
The “Therapeutic Madness” podcast host says she only ordered the penis-themed protective gear from China because “they would reach the United States the fastest.” When they ran out, Vincent decided to manufacture and sell the face masks herself on her site for $20 each, with all proceeds going to her organization.
It appears the social-media masses are lauding the balls-to-the-wall initiative.
“Where do I find this awesomeness?” posted one newfound Project Penis Mask proponent.
“Not gay, not that there’s anything wrong with it, but where can I can these?” wrote another.
One Facebook funnyman joked, “I love the distance marker! Men really don’t know inches lol!!!!”
“Can someone masks with beautiful viganas? I’d buy them,” Tweeted one vajayjay veil hopeful. In fact, Vincent tells The Post that she rolled out face covers bearing “boobs and vaginas” by popular demand, but her magnum opus remains the male genitalia version.
“I’m so overwhelmed by the response and how many people have shared my post,” gushed a grateful Vincent of the support. “Today, I’ve found 150,000 [currently more than 170k reactions on Facebook] people that are in my tribe.”
“So many people just don’t have a very good sense of humor these days,” the phallic fashionista adds, “and I just love that there are 150,000 people in the world that would also be willing to wear d – – ks on their faces.”
Vincent isn’t the first to unveil unusual COVID-19-fighting accessories. A Dutch hairdresser went viral for donning a “coronavirus-proof” umbrella shield while The Post has compiled a handy DIY guide to MacGyvering a face mask out of a jockstrap.
