Motorhead launch sex toy range

Motorhead have released their own range of sex toys.

The heavy metal band were inspired by their own song 'Vibrator' on their self-titled debut album and have collaborated with Lovehoney to create four vibrators featuring the group's logo.

Frontman Lemmy Kilmister said: "One of the songs on our debut album was called 'Vibrator' so we had to have our own one day, right? Apparently, it was worth the wait!"

Lovehoney co-founder Neal Slateford added: "We designed these classic vibes for both fans of Motorhead and rock lovers, as well as those who just want a cool-looking toy to add to their collection. The range captures the rock'n'roll lifestyle of the band perfectly, and offers a unique counterpoint to the traditionally pink and purple toys that currently dominate the market."

Lovehoney's Commercial Director Ray Hayes said: "Motorhead's massive fan base is a testament to their popularity, with the band having sold more than 15 million albums worldwide. With the announcement of the band's 22nd studio album 'Bad Magic' in August and their warmly received Glastonbury Festival appearance this year, we are certain that Motorhead - The Official Pleasure Collection will become a firm favourite for lovers and rock fans alike."

Motorhead were recently forced to cancel a number of shows after Lemmy's lung infection was exacerbated by the altitude in Denver, but they are now continuing on with their 40th anniversary tour.

A statement on the band's Facebook page read: "The wait is over and the Doc has spoken. Lemmy had a lung infection (exacerbated by that Denver altitude) which has now been taken care of.

"Amidst all the wonderful support Lemmy has received, many have rightfully said he owes us nothing as he has given us everything. We, however, owe Lemmy something...our total respect for his fierce, single-minded and beautifully stubborn determination to continue burning asphalt, playing rock'n'roll and live where he has always been most comfortable - on the road!"
