We couldn’t be happier to learn that the recession is apparently not impacting sex toy sales. Turns out women would rather wear last year’s jeans and use this year’s vibrator to get to their happy place. Sanity, at last! For years we’ve been telling women that it’s toad-licking crazy to spend more than $100 on a pair of designer jeans and then shaft your genitals (as it were) with a cheap knock-off sex toy.
We don’t mean that you have to get a 24K gold vibrator like Kate Moss did. And you certainly shouldn’t spend $1.8 million on a diamond-encrusted sex toy like David Beckham did for his wife Victoria. (We guess some people just need to spend that much to convince themselves that using sex toys isn’t sleazy or dirty. Newsflash: It’s not. Now go treat yourself to a Nea and donate the rest to world hunger, please.)
But you do need to spend a little bit of money to ensure that the toy you’re using is actually intended for pleasure (and not for “novelty purposes only,” like so many cheap plastic gimmicky sex toys). We have grand plans to tell you all about our favorite sex toys, both new and old, on this site, but for now we’ll just say this: Shopping at a clean, well-lighted sex toy shop, especially one designed to make women at home, is a great start. We heart GoodVibes, and so should you — because they don’t want you shafting your genitals either.
