Succession fans will be able to enjoy the show’s comeback in more ways than previously thought, with a live sex streaming platform launching a Cousin Greg-inspired sex toy.
The hit HBO series finally returned for its third season last night (October 17), with fans finally witnessing the fallout from the big cliffhanger of season two two years ago.
To coincide with the launch, the CamSoda website has now unveiled the ‘Greg the Egg’ toy, which buyers can use while watching the show.
According to a press release, fans can connect their “teledildonic” device – or Internet-connected sex toy – to the “Greg the Egg” camera room every Sunday night while the show airs. After being synced, its vibrations will increase whenever Nicholas Braun’s character, Greg Hirsch, appears on screen.
The actor himself was made aware of the toy, recounting Vanity Show: “I think, uh… Is that a compliment?

He added, “Oh my god, I wish I didn’t know about this.”
A CamSoda spokesperson further explained that they also considered sex toys focused on Roman Roy (Kieran Culkin) and Shiv Roy (Sarah Snook), but ultimately went with Greg (via The New York Post).
They said Greg was “the love of America and captured the hearts of many on social media.” Just scroll down Twitter Sunday night and you’ll see people coveting it. We thought it would be a nice compliment to people’s enthusiasm for him ”.
The company went on to admit that it “wanted to give people an outlet for Cousin Greg to orgasm while he honors them with his presence every Sunday night in the fall.”

“Where he took to the skies, in his 27 sublime episodes, was when he let the masks of his characters slip off and a dramatic change was really happening. In this new season, we might have wanted a little less “optics” and “temperature” and a little more mask slip.
“But whether it can be classified as fun or not, SuccessionThe grip of continues to pull us as strongly as ever, into the troubled depths.
