NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — From buzz kill to good vibrations. What a difference a day makes.

After being shut down by the city on Wednesday due to permit issues, Trojan spread the love tonight. Two Ryder trucks filled with vibrators were empty, following the giveaway in the Meatpacking District.

In all, the company said it gave away 4,000 complimentary Pulse and Tri-Phoria vibrators. At times, the line wrapped around the block and some people waited as long as 45 minutes to get their free vibrator, 1010 WINS’ Eileen Lehpamer reported.

“Not many people can say they got a free vibrator in New York City,” one woman told Lehpamer.

Trojan’s first attempt at the free vibrator giveaway left hundreds of New Yorkers unsatisfied Wednesday.

The company issued a press release on Tuesday saying it would be giving away 10,000 vibrators on Wednesday and Thursday on a “first come, first serve” basis. 

Hundreds of pleasure-seekers gathered around the “pleasure cart” in the Flatiron district hoping to get their hands on a new toy.

And that’s when the city pulled the plug on the promotion, citing permit issues.

That rubbed some the wrong way. One woman blamed Mayor Bloomberg for putting the kibosh on the giveaway on Wednesday, but said she was glad the company got the right permits for the hand-out today.

“That means people will be home doing their own thing and not out and about in the city causing trouble,” the happy recipient of a free vibrator told Lehpamer.

The company issued the following statement on its Facebook page earlier in the day on Thursday: “Yesterday was just the foreplay…our toe-curling, record breaking Trojan Vibes giveaway will climax today at 5 p.m. With official NYC permits in hand (thanks City of New York!), the Trojan Vibrations Pleasure Carts have reloaded and will be serving up pleasure tonight from 5-7 pm in the Meatpacking District on the corner of 14th Street and 9th Avenue. Pick up a complimentary Pulse or Tri-Phoria vibrator while supplies last. First come, first served.”
