If you thought people were blessedly finished talking and thinking about Fifty Shades of Grey
, welp, too bad for you, because this thing is still sticking around. Apparently the sex toy sector is projected to exceed 15% growth this year, driven by couples' desires to pretend they are horribly-written characters inhabiting Twilight
fanfic. No, I'm sorry, so grouchy. I'm glad straight people are finally branching out. Sex is awesome and people should enjoy it. I guess it's just sentences like this that are tough to handle:
Just as “Sex and the City” made the Rabbit vibrator an acceptable household appliance for single women more than a decade ago, the erotic novels’ popularity has made restraints and so-called love balls acceptable stocking stuffers this year. [Bloomberg]
The dark trinity of Sex and the City references, "so-called love balls," and "stocking stuffer"...I just...I don't know. Trying to stay sex-positive this season, you know?
