This butt-shaped lamp lights up when you slap it

It's the cheekiest way to light your room.

Most lamps aren’t worthy of embrace, but a tiny London-based company thinks it has dreamt up a light you’re going to want to grope. It’s called Slap It, and it’s shaped like a butt. Yes, an ass, a tush, a rump or a fanny. Oh, and you have to caress it in order to turn it on.

Weighing just over two and a half pounds, Slap It is a multi-colored, touch-controlled lamp that can be adjusted to ten different hues. It’s shaped like a generic pair of buttocks, and there’s very little that is sexual about the object itself. It has an inhumanly pale white color and there’s no defining element that points to it being either male or female—it’s simply an ass.

However, when it comes time to turn it on, that’s when things get sassy. In order to light up the butt, the user has to slap it, or squeeze a cheek, or give it a hearty spank. The Slap It website doesn’t explain exactly what the butt is made of, but it’s clearly some sort of squishy rubber or gel. 

Unfortunately, if you’ve got your eye on this butt you’re going to have to set aside a hefty helping of cash to grab one of your own. The Slap It lamp carries a hefty price tag of £149.00, which is about USD $230.00.
