I never knew Amazon sold sex toys! Finally I can use those gift certificates Mom gave me. Now if they only sold alcohol too...

You never seem to menstruate at all
So you're not angry when I'm late at all
I feel permanently felatable
Unpoppable, inflatable you.

Sex Toys are incredibly overpriced.

You have to shop around, stores especially are notoriously overpriced.

Does Amazon have a second-hand section for these? "Butt-plugs 10 new and used"

You can get deals on line, but yeah brick and mortar stores have 200-300% markup. You pay for being able to not leave a credit-card trail...

Alternately you could purchase a Visa Gift Card with cash, then use that to purchase sex toys online with a much-reduced paper trail. A&E ships to PO Boxes if you're afraid to have something shipped to the house, too.

Embrace sexuality, though; leave paper trails everywhere with your real name and address! Particularly if you're a teacher, work with the disabled, or are a member of the clergy. fark convention. :)

Even online stores are incredibly expensive. There's no reason a cock-shaped hunk of plastic with a simple battery-operated vibrating motor should cost $99.95 + S&H

the best part is that the american worker is getting the biggest sex toy of all shoved up his pink hungry anus: the Outsourced-Job-to-commie- china butt plug.


its huge, wide, and painful, but you'll love it!!

Has anybody ever seen "Shop Erotic" on late night cable? It's sort of a Home Shopping Network for sex toys. Call me old fashioned, but it's strange to see two women extoling the virtures of a particular sex toy.

First Woman: "See, it thrusts and rotates, and his this clitoral stimulator."
Second Woman: "Yes, it's one of my favories, order now and get a free bottle of lube."

PS: I said it seemed strange, I didn't say I didn't like it.

My bunk, I'll be in it.

All things considered, a Tenga Flip Hole (^) is cheaper than a typical date night.

Somebody has never watched "Sex with Sue".

I work with sex toys companies as well as being a sex writer. Yes, sex toys sales have done very well for the past few years despite the recession. That's worldwide, too. Regarding sex toys being overpriced, it depends on what brand and kind you want to use. Most web sites have sex toys divided up by price as well as type and brand. I do like some of the expensive ones, especially Lelo sex toys. They really rock.

I don't know... $109, $169 at Babeland... How good can it be?

Yup, they're costly. There are even some gold plated ones for thousands of dollars. Part of it is the snob factor. They are good sex toys, though. And people are buying them. They're best sellers.

If you want a high quality, cheaper sex toy, I'd go with Doc Johnson or California Exotics. You can't go wrong with a Pocket Rocket, for instance.

As much as I groan about my wife never-putting-out, I know the situation would be a helluvalot worse without that gizmo.

A lot of the bondage stuff out there is really expensive, and is replicated quite nicely with cheaper materials. Why spend $50 on a whip when you could use a belt? Why spend $20 on nipple clamps when you could use clothespins?

Why not just beat her with the money itself and throw coins at her?
