You might think the overlap between dog toys and sex toys is, uh, zero, but customers of BarkBox, the subscription dog toy and treat box, would disagree with you on that. In fact, it’s gotten so common that the people at BarkBox’s company have just launched a “Bark After Dark” landing page where you can shop all their sex toy lookalikes in one place.

Most recently, toys from their July Olympics-themed box where you can flip a lil animal mascot inside out to create a ball (volleyball, basketball, the Olympics, etc, you get it) have been er…questioned by customers:

Instead of running from the comparisons, BarkShop actually rolls with it. Stacie Grissom, BARK’s Director of Content told Cosmopolitan that the team at BarkBox has been hearing comparisons of their products to sex toys for years and they kinda love the good laugh from customers and employees alike.

Probs most famous example of doggo-toy-gone-what? was BarkBox’s 2019 pig-in-a-blanket toy that went viral for looking very fleshlight-y. A “red rocket” toy has also gotten some laughs on 9Gag, and their Viagrowl toy just speaks for itself.
“It definitely feels like customers are poking us to have a good laugh, and we LOVE tossing it right back,” said Grissom, adding, that “truly, these are some of the best days as a social team where we are just cackling to ourselves and letting the customers run with stuff and take the toys out of context.”
Grissom also added that the collection page is new this week and was inspired by a (genius who deserves a raise, in my opinion) social editor who asked the team if it was possible to collect all their “spicy” toys in one place.
Other naughty comparisons you can shop include: many a phallic toy, a “pearl necklace” toy that looks like anal beads, and a few others — like this corn on the cob toy that even I am trying to figure out. Grissom confirmed that all the toys on the Bark After Dark page are items that their customers have called them out on.
Aside from fleshlight looking toys, BarkShop also makes a ton of other cute dog toys, like their sold out Glossier collab from last year and another sold out collection of 4/20 themed toys this year. If history is any indication, these Bark After Dark toys are probably gonna go fast — so buy that corn cob toy now and LMK if you can figure out what it’s supposed to be later.
For now, you can find the Bark After Dark collection only by URL (linked above and here bby) but they’re working on adding it to their main BarkShop site navigation soon.
