This post contains TMI of an adult nature and, while it contains only text, may nonetheless be non-worksafe if your workplace is really, really uptight.
In the course of being out and about and shopping yesterday, we decided to amuse ourselves by dropping by one of Atlanta’s fine adult emporiums, The Love Shack in Norcross, to see if anything fun might catch our eye and pick up the few odd things. I really like this store better than most of it’s kind. It’s a large, airy space, with wide aisles and an open, uncrowded atmosphere. The staff are friendly without being creepy, and extremely knowledgeable about their products. (As the manager pointed out in a conversation we had, once you have to actually inventory the stuff, it’s just retail product.)
While we were pursuing the Great Wall O’ Vibraty Goodness, a question occurred to kitanzi that I had no answer for. To be honest, I’m just as stumped as she is, and so I turn to you, because all knowledge is contained on my friends list, to ask this seminal and provocative question.
Why do vibrators and dildos come almost exclusively in neon colours found nowhere in nature?
I mean, ok, you’ve got your boring white and black ones, and beige-ish looking ones that I guess are trying for a sort of ersatz Caucasian flesh tone, and of course you’re chrome bullet for that space-age feel, but honest injun, the vast majority of what was on the shelves were colours that would make a peacock feel drab. Green. Blue. Purple. Pink stripes. Leopard print pattern. I’m still surprised we didn’t see a plaid one.
Can anyone actually explain this? No, really, I wanna know. Were the people who make these things deprived of crayolas as kids, or what?
